N.M., on J u l y 16, 1945, man has triggered perhaps 800 nuclear explosions. And, in that time, the peaceful application of nuclear energy has led lo 46 licensed nuclear power plants in the United States, providing 6. per cent of the total U.S. capacity, and a on good rleai of controversy safety and environmental effects. The Atomic Industrial Forum, an industry organization, says there are hopes for some 220 power plants in this country by 1894. Abroad, some 20 countries are committed to nuclear power, with plans for another 300 power plants, it said. In the 29 years since the first man-made nuclear explosion in history, five tint ions have joined" the United States in the "nuclear cluh"--having exploded a nuclear bomb: The Soviet Union, the United King- .dom, France, the People's Re public of China and now India. The most recent nuclear tcs( .explosions, by China and ·France on Monday, were parl ,of a recent rush of news about nuclear power. President Nixon announced on his tour of the ·Middle East that the Unitcc -States will Kelp both Egypt and ilsracl develop nuclear power ·for peaceful purposes. ; I N D I A ' S TEST · And the atmospheric tests fol -lowed India's controversial f i r s test of an underground nucleni -device last May 18 and Sovic Party Chief Leonid 1.

Tlie domestic segment of the industry, the American Pyrotechnics Association, whose members do not make firecrackers, supported the proposed ban.

BOSTON (AP) -- Sea breezes! we better uses than sailing ooats. f l y i n g kites and drying sundry, says a college professor. He lias in rnind giant windmills that would generate all New England's electricity. "This is an energy resource that's right here in our f r o n t yard," says Prof. William E. Heronemus. The front yard is New England's 473-mile coastline. And the resource is the wind that whistles up and down the coast at an average speed of 20 miles an hour. If enough windmills were anchored off the coast, all the region's electricity coukl come cm the air by the 1990s, he ys. And it would only cost jout three-fiftbs of whai eople are paying now. The professor is a civil engi- eer at the University o' 'assachusetts in Amherst who lecializes in alternate sources energy. Getting people to take the ind scriusly lias been a prob m for Heronemus.
