Marine Lab, Hippies May Be Sharing Dislike for Hot Water SANDY HOOK — Perish the thought that the Sandy Hook Marine Laboratory, a most serious institution dedicated to research aimed at the conservation of Atlantic game fish resources, should ever become a shrine to science minded ...liippies.oi..the.sacUess.bear(l.set But there are some groovy portents. Should Jack B. Pearce, a biologist project director, and fcis associates studying the effects of thermal additions-to our— rivers, estuaries and near shore seas, ever convince local planning boards and industrial development agencies that hot water is a destroyer of marine ecosystems, and a growing menace to man's environment in general, watch out. Hot water's roles as a pollutant confirmed and documented, and scientific substance given to an intuitive aversion for the stuff among the young, would bring joy to Hipsville and paeans of petals to the Hook. Pearce, quite professionally, is more concerned with changing the hot water image among the more senior citizens. He knows what the flower people find hard to accept, namely that hot water is here to stay, and that, in moderation, it serves humanity well. But he v 'nds to make it properly suspect. Hopefully, his work may ultimately make those elders busy about the business of,altering natural environments more wary about the location of utilities and industries which use vast amounts of water as a coolant or in processing which is later discharged hot into rivers or the sea. Hopefully, his work will make municipal connoisseurs of HIGHEST ACHIEVEMENT — Eagle Scout awards presented to Robert D.

And hopefully, his research findings will assure a future supply of both recreational and commercial fish stocks along -the-Jersey-coast—-— ••- ...„,....-....,.,.„.„ According to Dr. Lionel A. Walford, director of the Sandy Hook Laboratory, the study of heat effects on marine organisms • -was-begun -as -« project to anticipate the results of hot water discharge from a proposed electrical generating plant in the Cape Cod canal area. Additional projects under Pearce have made the laboratory a headquarters clearing house for biologists working in the field. The world's first global meeting of such experts was held there last May as part of the International Biological Program, an affiliate activity of the National Academy of Science. The next, a broader spectrum session including representatives from England, Scotland, Germany, Canada, and perhaps Poland, is being masterminded from there now. It will to be held at Solomons, Maryland, at the Chesapeake Biological Laboratory, probably in March or April. Needless to say, the current studies of hot water villainy at Sandy Hook are reasonably ambitious ones. Pearce, who came to the laboratory from the Division of Biological Sciences at California's Humboldt State College, and a year of benthic (bottom) life studies in Denmark on a grant from the U. S. Health, Education and Welfare Department, is quite literally investigating heat effects as they apply to the entire food chain of the sea, as well as heat kills on individual species. He is looking at the marine complex on what mighe be termed a year's cycle of seasons. For instance, an increase of temperature that might kill life forms existing in cold winter seas, might be less lethal in the warmer oceans of summer where life has already made a "seasonal adjustment." As a layman reporter putting words in his mouth, Pearce is also recording the temperature tolerances of marine species which comprise the ecosystem. Very small amounts of heat, for instance, kill the small minnow-like menidia, a favorite food of bluefish and other Jersey game species. Thus, a power plant pumping hot discharge without regard to environment kills the menidia, the blues starve or vanish elsewhere, the fishing falls off, the fishermen vanish, and so does recreation income for the state.. Small amounts of heat will kill many invertebrates such as the mussels which call the Shrewsbury Rocks home and which are also a game fish food. Small amounts of thermal additions may kill game fish such as flounder. Hot water has its plus values, however. As Pearce's work progresses, there are indications thtot someday thermal manipulations could be used to destroy certain types of predators, and increase wanted fish species. Heat factors might be used to alter reproduction cycles. For instance, mussels in the northern ranges of the sea reproduce only once a year, southern mussels breed two crops. Oyster growth might be stimulated by judicious use of heat. Pearce's basic research tool at the laboratory is a simulated 1 sea bottom. It is an experimental flume 30 feet long which holds 3,150 gillo.ns,otse.a, water. And it Is..gimmick.^ with viewing ports nnd many sensory controls which allow him to sot up and monitor different regimes of temperature, nnd to watch changes in the feeding habits, general sicknesses or health of tho fish, crabs, mussels and other members of the sea community as they react to heat. The study of thermal additions to our waterways has vast implications for the future. John Cairns Jr. of Kansas University's Zoological Department, In a recent paper, says electrical power generation needs were doubling every decade, nnd that the runoff o[ water used for cooling purposes would by the year 2000 be a very serious pollutant problem. Hot water? Well, as the kids say, like watch it. ' Tho Sandy Hook Marino Laboratory is doing just that. By CHARLES A. JOHNSTON SHREWSBURY - The Monmouth County Library's eastern branch, which is taking shape on Rt. 35 here, is running behind schedule while interest in the 'county service is leaping ahead. So says Miss Julia Killian, director, who looks on the bright side, and Daniel S. Briggs, resident architect, who deals with the more mundane realities. The $650,299 facility, which will •become the county's principal research and reference center as well as a fully-supplied general library, had been due for occupancy in June. ' But Mr. Briggs says that some unexpected soil problems delayed initial construction for the general contractor, Henry J. Vac- caro Co., Asbury Park, and the building won't be in use until fall. The builders probably will finish their work by April 1, he said, but interior work and furnishings will require the additional time. By the time the doors open, Miss Killian is hopeful she will be able to announce that the branch has been designated as a selected government publication depository. Each congressional district is permitted two and the Third District, currently embracing Monmouth County and parts of Middlesex and Ocean, has only one, situated at Monmouth College, West Long Branch. The other assigned to the district, at the Ocean County College, was lost when the bulk of Ocean was eliminated from the •ea. Miss Killian says James Bryant, Newark library director and a Monmouth consultant, is making the county's interest known. She said the cooperation of Rep. James J. Howard, D-NJ, will be sought. Only the Newark and Prince ton University libraries are depositories in New Jersey for al government publications. A se lected depository holds copies o those issues the library director deems necessary. One big advantage, Miss Killian explains, is the daily Congressional Record with a microfilm backstop from the first edition. Similar materials, both current and on microfilm, would be made available on other major government publications, including all reports Of the U.S. Census Bureau. Meanwhile, the director reports, activity at the centra headquarters library in Freehold and at the Ocean Township branch, which the county operates in cooperation with the township, is rising rapidly. The branch in the township, Woman Mayor Has Progressive Goals By LONIA EFTHYVOULOU SEA BRIGHT—"More women should accept their civic responsibilities. Women must stand for election and participate in government." This is the firm opinion, of Mrs. Cecile F. Norton, mayorelect of this borough. By her election, Mrs. Norton became the first woman to hold such an office in the shore area since Katharine Elkus White, U.S. ambassador to Denmark, who served as mayor of Red Bank, 1950^56. At election, Mrs. Norton was serving the first year of her third term as Democratic councilwoman. On Jan. 1, she will have to resign from ihis position to take up her duties as mayor. She defeated incumbent Mayor Frank Van Duzer, Republican, 339 to 308. "I have always been interested in government," she said. "I started my political career by licking stamps and distributing literature. I have always admired the achievements of Mrs. White, who inspired me tremendously." Referring to her responsibilities as the next mayor here, Mrs. Norton said, "My foremost interest was, and will al- . Hays_remain,..the..welfare -of-the... citizens of Sea Bright. I hope I will be able to serve them and[ourJborough well.'' As mayor, Mrs. Norton will preside over a council composed of three Republicans and two Democrats. The remaining vacant seat, created by her own resignation from council, will be filled by appointment. There seems to be little doubt that this seat will be filled by a Republican. "I am certain," she said, "that all members of council will cooperate with me. I want to give the people here the highest form of government possible. Our combined efforts must be directed toward the welfare and progress of the borough and its residents." What of the needs of Sea Bright? Mrs. Norton is convinced the borough is ideally located as a resort. "We have the golden spot on the Jersey shore," she said. "Our beach is the finest one could wish to find. "I would like to see this beach cleaned up and improved so that more and more people will come to use it. A boardwalk is also an excellent possibility. It would attract many people to our borough and would also be a profitable enterprise." Say Nasser 'Torpedoes' Pact Hopes JERUSALEM (AP) — A tough speech by President Gamat Abdel Nasser warning that Egypt will fight if necessary to get is territories back, today strengthened Israel's determination that a, settlement can be reached only through direct negotiations 1 wittr he Arabs. One Israeli diplomat said Nas ser's epeech Thursday "torpedoed" hopes raised by Egypt's acceptance of the U.N. Security Council resolution on the Middle East and "puts us back at square one." "That's why we want direct talks with the Arabs-not a U.N. arranged settlement," the source said. MAYOR-ELECT — Mrs. Cecile F. Norton, mayor-elect of Sea Bright,, stands before beach which, she says, "is the best beach along the shore. It should be improved to attract more visitors to our resort." In background are some of the buildings and other structures Mrs. Norton believes should be removed, to clear up the "bsach and make room for a possiBle~¥oaf'3w : alE (Register Staff Photo) Sea Bright, according to Mrs. Norton, must progress, and she says she will do her best to see this brought about. "We have some excellent beach clubs now," she added, "but there is nothing wrong in attracting more ratables of the suitable sort. The community can be turned into a first class resort and residential area. The possibilities exist all around us." Completion of a sewage disposal system, a project which is already well in motion, is another important improvement, she stressed. "Now," she continued," the sewer plant only serves the central portion of the borough. "This area stretches from the Rumson bridge to the Shrewsbury Motel. The area must be extended to the full length of the borough, from the Highlands bridge intersection all the way south to the Monmouth Beach line. Plans have been completed and the contract with the Northeast Sewerage Authority will soon be signed. This should get things moving and work start soon." Another aspiration of Mrs. Norton's is the improvement of recreational facilities. "People must have something to do when they come here. Apart from the beach, it will be up to the borough to see to it that they have other recreational facilities at their disposal." Federal projects, which would bring federal funds into the borough, must also be sought out, Mrs. Norton said, adding, "The borough must participate fully in such projects for its own good." Mrs. Norton, who was born in New Orleans, lived in New York before moving to this area in 1939. She served as Democratic committeewoman and has been on the Monmouth County Executive Committee since 1947. She and her husband, Robert, a retired stock broker, live on Ocean Ave. They have no children. Summing up, Mrs. Norton said: "I want to see a beautiful beach here, complemented by a beautiful residential community. This would make a summer resort equaled by none. Working together, for the good of the community, we can achieve this." built last year by the municipality, is staffed by the county. Both the county and the township supply books, with the former owning the greater number. All members of the county system may draw books there and return them at Freehold, Oakhurst, Shrewsbury, when it opens, or to county bookmobiles Growth has been substantial since 1963, particularly in the last two years since Monmouth became one of 17 area libraries in New Jersey and qualified for additional state and federal aid. Whereas the county formerly offered only scattered professional periodicals, it now has 350 popular editions, in both current and microfilm editions. Photo copying for specially requested material is a regular service. Federal assistance was pegged at $37,245 in 1965 and the amount has remained constant. State aid has jumped from $10,939 in 1965 to $49,556 this year and local tax revenue, assessed against property owners in the 43 member municipalities, from $156,103 to $254,001. • The total two-year increase has been $136,515, or 65 per cent. None of this is for construction, but new books are purchased from these receipts. Sizable numbers are in storage awaiting delivery here. Building funds are obtained by general county bonds. Miss Killian says 17,818 books were added in 1965, and 28,987 in 1966. At the start of this year, there were 174,781 volumes on hand. Miss Killian expects to stock 50,000 volumes at Shrewsbury. Virtually all titles will be duplicated in Freehold and for bookmobile service, though the number of copies of each will not be as great as at Shrewsbury. In picking this location for its first major area branch, the library board of trustees and the county Board of Freeholders ~ were guided by the center of the county population which Is said to be Eatontown. While that eye will probably shift to-Colts" Neck before the year 2,000, the switch will be gradual. Under a pledge from the freeholders, planning will begin for a new headquarters library in Freehold as soon as the eastern branch becomes operational. Offices, bokmobile distribution and local service will be maintained at Freehold. . Among facilities to be installed at Shrewsbury will be the record library, now held at the Rumson Public Library, and rec- dtoh1M![ p y a m was a gift several years ago from the county Junior Service League, but.has .not-been...used recently because the record player at Rumson broke down, Miss Killian says. There are record playing facilities at Oakhurst, and these are available for use by county system members. The year 1968 will not only open a new chapter in library life here for Miss Killian. On Jan. 1, she will mark her 20th anniversary as director. She came here from St. Elizabeth's College, where she had been librarian several years after serving her apprenticeship in the public library at Schenectady, N. Y. Not content with merely adding books and buildings, Miss Killian and her staff are concentrating on service improvements and expansion. These include Mary J. Galletto, Jack Field, Alexander L., Garelick and Anna Stuhl, principal librarians, respectively, for children's, technical, adult, and extension services; Anna R. Allen, Doris Handzo, Juanita Ball and Irene Waters, senior librarians, respectively, for children's ervices, the Ocean Township ranch, extension, and adult services. HEADQUARTERS for tho county library in Freehold is tho former home, of the late County Cleric Joseph McDormott at Broad St. and Manalapan Ave. .
