Va Mrs Moore and her two children live in Frederick, where she plans to resume her studies at the Frederick Community College Business Review By PHI THOMAS AP Business Writer NEW YORK (AP) -- People used to depend on a card in the window to keep their food fresh. The card was a signal for the passing iceman to stop, tote a block of ice in on his leather- padded shoulder, and drop it into the wooden icebox. Most Americans now rely, however, on the refrigerator and freezer to preserve and keep their fresh food fresh. But there's a relatively new development in food freezing that makes the refrigerator's frigid temperatures seem almost balmy. It's called cryogenics, the science of supercold temperatures. Ihe average temperature in a refrigerator freezing compartment ranges between 0 and minus 5 degrees Fahrenheit, cold enough to freeze a juicy leg of lamb into a rock hard club. But the temperatures of cryogenics range from minus 100 to minus 452 degrees Fahrenheit--so cold that gases become liquids, some metals gain superstrengch and a fresh orange can be smashed into powder. In the past few years, cryogenics has coasted out of the research laboratory and currently is getting practical application in such fields as food, metal- making, medicine, aerospace and electricity. Industry sources say they expect the market for cryogenic machinery and gases to grow from the millions into a multi- bilhon-dollar market betwon now and 1975. John P. 'Adams, president of Borg-Warner Corp's. Byron- Jackson Division, estimates the m a n u f acture of cryogenic I pumps alone could amount to $10 million to $15 million. The pumps are used to convert gases, such as nitrogen, into EU- percold liquids. "At this point," says Adams "we are just beginning to capitalize on the opportunities this new technology has opened up." The manufacture and sale *f liquid nitrogen for cryogenic us has gr o w n into a $100-million-a-year business, a spokesman says. Chemetrin Corp., Union Carbide Coip., Air Products Chemicals, Air Re duction Co., and General Dynamics are among the leaders in the field. The food industry is one of the most active in exploiting the uses of supercold. One spokesman says practically every frozen food manufacturer in the United States has been experimenting with cryogenic freezing. One group ,s the ice-cream people who are thinking of turning out readymade sundaes, banana splits and the like and then quicn- freezing them in their original shapes. Liquid nitrogen--it becomes : liquid at minus 320 degrees Fahrenheit--is being used to some degree to keep meat fresh dui- ing shipping. After a truck is loaded with meat, liquid ntfro- ;en is sprayed into the cargo space and the meat instantly rozen so that when it arrives at market it has had no loss from shrinkage, according to an n- lustry spokesman Nitrogen also is being used in ts gaseous form to keep fres^i ruits and vegetables fresh, ,;ie spokesman says. The gas, metered out from tanks of liquid nitrogn, forms a blanket over the truck load of corn, lettuce and peas "to shield them from oxygen which destroys the freshness." John Cuniff is on vacation. The 14.8 million veterans of World War II now average 48 years of age, the Veterans Administration reports. Judge Suspends Sentence In. Drunk Test Cose | From The Montgomery \ County Bureau I ROCKVILLE -- A Gaithersburg man was given a six month suspended jail sentence for public drunkenness in the 1 Montgomery County People's Court, thus eliminating the immediate need for a county alcoholic center. I Walter Ricketts was sentenced 1 by Judge J. Fendall Coughlan in a case which was labeled as a "test case" for a Federal Court ruling holding that alcoholics are sick people and not 1 criminals. The federal ruling was handed down in January 1966 in Rchmond, Va., and recommended that alcoholics be placed in treatment centers instead of jails. Ricketts' court appointed at- tprney, George M k Shadoan, sought to have Ricketts releas- , ed under this ruling and has filed an appeal to the County Circuit Court. Montgomery County currently has no facilities for trea f - ment cf alcoholics. The county council has directed County Manager Mason A. Butcher to look into possible temporary sites for such a center. In handing down his decision, Judge Coughlan said that he realized that a "chronic alcoholic was a disease-infected per- son and is not actually a criminal." However, Coughlan said that he did not think that a judge on the People's Court level should hand down a decision when a great deal of money would have to be spent on treatment facilities. Coughlan announced his decision on the same day that Governor Agnew proposed that alcoholics in Maryland not be treated as criminals. Part of his proposal involves setting up treatment facade. throughout th e state. Eartha Kltt Collapses During *Peg' Show SILVER S P R I N G (AP) -- Actress-singer Eartha Kitt collapsed Friday night during a performance of the pre- Broadway musical "Peg" and ·.\as rushed to a hospital in this suburban Washington community. A hospital spokesman said Miss Kitt was "having back troubles," but would not elabo- i rate. She was said to be in satisfactory condition. Miss Kitt was starring in the musical at Shady Grove Mus ; c Fa'r, a theater-in-the-round near G a i t h e r s b u r g , about 118 miles northwest of Washington. The play was billed as undergoing final tryouts before heading for a Broadway opening. Stolen Loot Returned SAN FRANCISCO (AP)--The underworld came through--an i a $500 pair of crystal and gold candlesticks stolen last April from the Episcopal Grace Cathedral on Nob Hill are back on the altar. Police Inspectors Eugene Osuna and Eugene Fogarty said they sent word through the underworld grapevine that the case would never be dropped until the candlesticks were returned A call from Los Angeles informed them that the candlesticks were in a public locker in a hotel basement. Then in the mail came a key.
