Stored Data Acquisition System 


DAVE RYERSON (5336) 
displays circuit board that is 
the heart of a new on-board 
data acquisition system. 
Co-developer Gene Hauser 
(5336) is at right. The new 
system, which requires no 
radio telemetry or ground 
support, is used on test 
programs with recoverable 
test units. 



PREPARING for Midas Myth, an underground nuclear test at NTS, are Jon 
Weiss and Jim Stoever (both 7116). Jim points to one of the two new kinds 
of fiberoptic gauges they’ve developed to measure strains and pressures 
during weapons tests. In the close-up view at right, Jon holds one of the U- 
shaped fibers that can be used as either a pressure gauge or a strain 
gauge. 


New Device 

Replaces 

Telemetry 

Field testing of recoverable test units at 
Sandia is a little easier and a little less ex¬ 
pensive these days. Dave Ryerson and Gene 
Hauser of Instrumentation Development 
Division 5336 have developed a simple and 
inexpensive device that eliminates the need 
for radiofrequency telemetry in experi¬ 
ments with recoverable test units. 

Called SDACS (for stored data acquisi¬ 
tion system), the device stores the test data 
in its memory and then reads the data out 
when interrogated upon recovery. It re¬ 
quires no ground support during test opera¬ 
tions and only limited support (a device 
with a commonly available RS-232 serial 
interface) for readout after the test. 

SDACS is finding applications in test pro¬ 
grams for parachutes, sea floor penetra- 
tors, balloon instrumentation, a study of 
B52 bomb bay temperatures, an Army 
parachute heavy equipment delivery 
system, and the Navy’s Advanced Light 
Weight Torpedo. 

“The torpedo program illustrates the 
full capabilities of SDACS,” Dave says. 
“The test sequence uses three different 
operational modes and data sampling rates. 
The SDACS records the environmental

A Fiberoptic 
First at NTS 

Two new kinds of fiberoptic gauges — a 
strain gauge and a pressure gauge — are 
being designed and tested by Jon Weiss and 
Jim Stoever of Field Measurements Divi¬ 
sion 7116. Both gauges are sensors that 
detect changes in light intensity. 

Optical fibers are long strands of light- 
transmitting glass about the thickness of a 
human hair. They consist of a core of glass 
clad with a material of lower refractive in¬ 
dex. Light inside the core is guided by total 
internal reflection. Some loss of light 
around bends always occurs. It’s this bend 
radiation that is the basis of the gauges de¬ 
veloped by Jon and Jim. 

Both of these new fiberoptic gauges are 
being developed primarily to measure 
strains and pressures near other instru¬ 
ments during nuclear weapons tests at 
Nevada Test Site. Interference from the in¬ 
tense electromagnetic radiation such blasts 
produce often renders standard electrical 
gauges and copper cabling useless during 
the key measurement period. But the new 
optical gauges are unaffected. 

“In regard to bend radiation, if the op¬ 
tical fiber has only gentle curves along its 
length, very little light leaks from the core, 
but if the fiber is bent severely — for in¬ 
stance, into the shape of a ‘U’ a quarter of 
an inch wide — many of the light rays strike 
the core/cladding interface in the bend 
region at too high an angle to be totally re¬ 
flected internally, while other light rays ex¬ 
perience loss around the bend through a 


more subtle process known as tunneling. 
Thus, much of the light escapes.” 

Jon’s strain gauge is based on the modu¬ 
lation of this light loss from a bend. In a 
tightly bent “U,” the amount of light loss 
varies measurably when the degree of 
bending changes even slightly due to strain 
on the surface that the optical fiber is fixed 
to. 

The process of fabricating the strain 


gauge is begun by Clint Tuthill of Glass 
Formulation and Fabrication Section 7472. 
He pulls the fiber from a rod of glass and 
then heats it so that the fiber can be bent to 
the desired degree. “We then epoxy the U- 
shaped fiber to the surface that is to be mea¬ 
sured,” says Jim. “The epoxy doubles as 
the cladding material.” 

Any deformation of the surface will

Ethereal vs. Mundane —As I write this, I’m also watching a flock of 
errant hot-air balloons from the Balloon Fiesta drift slowly south 
across the parade ground and Tech Area I. For me, at least, they're 
almost hypnotic: an elemental shape—an inverted teardrop, propelled 
horizontally by one elemental force—wind, and kept aloft by a 
classical element—fire. They're large, slow, and majestic 
they're probably the most natural means by which to give ourselves 


a natural thrill—that of looking down at our natural habitat fro 


above—no engines, no dependence on the complexities of aerodynamic 


lift, not much noise, moving in three dimensions not by overcoming 


gravity and friction and inertia by brute force but by, literally, 
going with the flow. 

So they appeal to the primitive in us—our cave-dwelling ancestors 
could have understood balloons. It's the same appeal that other 
elemental sports (sailing, skiing, surfing, sky-diving, hang¬ 
gliding) possess. 

Yes, hot-air balloons are absolutely impractical as a means of 
transportation--but that too is part of their appeal. It's some¬ 
how refreshing to judge the value of something on considerations 
other than practicality, efficiency, utility. 

Oh, for an ethereal (literally, relating to the regions beyond 
the earth, those once thought to be filled with ether) balloon 
to lift me above this mundane (from the Latin for world) desk.'

the question of whether or not his invitation should be accepted. 
I'll have to be the pouncer to point to his "We . . . will be 
down at dockside waving you a fond farewell as you sail into the 
sunset" and point out that, Charley, it's extremely difficult to 
sail into the sunset from any dock in New York City. Across

BIRDS & BEES, NO; FLOWERS, YES 

® Botany was thought to be a suitable study 
for young women in schools and an ama¬ 
teur avocation in the 19th century. A sur¬ 
prisingly large number of American 
women identified themselves as being seriously inter¬ 
ested in botany. For example, in the first published di¬ 
rectory of American botanists in 1873,13 percent of the 
599 names are women’s and that increased to 16 per¬ 
cent of the 982 names in 1878 .... Though few 
American women became professional botanists in the 
19th century, they constitute an important overlooked 
constituency for the developing profession of botany.

strains as the torpedo drops from an air¬ 
craft, goes through parachute deployment, 
and rides to impact. Then it records impact 
data and the transition into the water and 
continues to record depth data. SDACS is 
particularly useful in applications where 
radio telemetry is not feasible, such as 
underwater testing.” 

Assembled from commercial com¬ 
ponents, SDACS can survive impact shocks 
up to 500 Gs. It is applicable to any test on 
recoverable units in which data acquisition 
speeds up to 4000 samples per second are 
needed. 

SDACS consists of a microcomputer- 
based electronics package that digitizes 
and stores up to eight channels of analog 
data in a semiconductor memory. When the 
test unit is recovered, the data are read out 
via a serial data link to a printer for im¬ 
mediate data evaluation or to a computer 
for further data reduction. The system uses 
low-power circuitry that can be operated 
from a small internal battery pack for 
periods of hours to days. The unit consumes 
one watt of power and can operate from a 
supply of 13 to 35 volts. 

The electronics system has three printed 
circuit cards; a central processing unit 
(CPU) board, a memory board, and an 
analog signal processing board. The CPU 
controls all the data-gathering procedures. 
The memory board stores up to 24 kilobytes 
of read/write memory for data storage and 
8 kilobytes of read-only memory for the 
microprocessor program. 

The system is completely controlled by 
its software, so it can be easily adapted to 
the user’s needs for a particular test with no 
hardware changes. The user’s transducers 
can be fixed directly onto the system’s 
module or wired in from an external 
location. 

Programmed data-gathering sequences 
can respond to an onboard clock, sensors, or 
pull switches. For instance, the sampling 
rate and sample-channel mode can be 
switched when a certain acceleration is 
sensed. 

The entire system, including the built-in 
D-sized battery pack, is 10 inches long, 4% 
inches wide and 3% inches high, smaller 
than an economy box of facial tissues. With 
the eight-cell battery pack, the system 
weights 8.3 pounds. 

“It’s basically a little computer that 
stores data that can be read out after the 
unit is recovered,” Dave says. “It’s simple, 
inexpensive, and reliable.” 

In the future, another memory board 
may be added to double the data storage 
capacity to 48 kilobytes. Other possible 
changes include a doubling of the number of 
analog data channels to sixteen and an in¬ 
crease in the maximum data-sampling 
rate.

Toys Out of the Attic 


Aficionados of Automotive Antiques 



THE OLD SAYING “The only difference between men and boys is the price of their toys” doesn’t apply to 
Ken Campbell (7541) and his collection of old vehicles, unless you count the big truck in the back. 


Achieving adulthood didn’t destroy Ken 
Campbell’s (7541) fascination with the toys 
of his youth. With the enthusiastic as¬ 
sistance of his sons, Eric, 15, and Robin, 13, 
he’s filled shelves in almost every room of 
their home with toy trucks, cars, and 
scaled-down replicas of construction equip¬ 
ment, most of them made in the 1940s and 
’50s (before Tonka began to dominate the 
industry). And they have to keep building 
new shelves. A recent trip to a major toy 
show in Gettysburg, Pa., produced about 
100 additions to the collection. That puts the 
total number at 443. 

The toys range in size from palm-of-the- 
hand miniatures to knee-high monsters. 
There are dump trucks (46 of them) and 
semis (88 of those), most painted in bright 
oranges, yellows, or reds — drab colors 
didn’t sell. Ken says he would be hard 
pressed to pick a favorite, but Eric insists 
his dad is partial to a hard-to-find, red 
Smith-Miller dump truck dating back to 
sometime between 1948 and ’53. 

A vacation back home in Harrisburg, 
Pa., three years ago sparked the Camp¬ 
bells’ interest in collecting old toy trucks. 
They retrieved Ken’s childhood collection 
and decided it would be fun to replace the 
pieces that had been lost over the years. 
They started their search at flea markets. 
Soon they were subscribing to collector’s 
magazines, and the hobby moved like a 
Mack down Monarch Pass. They went to 
their first big toy show a year ago last 
February in Phoenix, an event they’d like to 
attend again next year. 

Sometimes Ken and his sons find the old 
toys in mint condition. Other times a well- 
worn model is all that’s available. Then Ken 
heads out to the garage to restore it. The re¬ 
finishing process involves stripping, sand¬ 
blasting, priming, and, occasionally, craft¬ 
ing new parts. Ken has started doing the re¬ 
painting with an airbrush so he can mix his 


own colors and do more detailed work. If 
possible, he prefers to pay more for an item 
in good condition than to have to truck with 
restoring it. 

The oldest toy in the collection is a cast- 
iron truck from the 1920s that belonged to 
Ken’s father. The most valuable is that 
favorite Smith-Miller dump truck. It cost 
$9.95 new and is now worth $120. The collec¬ 
tion also includes all but one of the pieces in 
the old Caterpillar series and an ever¬ 
growing group of Winross limited editions 
— tractor-trailer rigs with sponsoring com¬ 


panies’ logos on the sides, which Eric adds 
to every month. The Campbells also gather 
as much of the original literature about 
their trucks as they can. 

With most serious old toy truck collec¬ 
tors and dealers in the East or on the West 
Coast, Ken and his sons may be building one 
of the largest collections in New Mexico. 
However, it will be some time before their 
collection compares to that of their friend in 
Chicago, who has over 30,000 toy trucks fill¬ 
ing his basement. “I think he buys trucks by 
the truckload,” sighs Ken.

Fiberoptic First at NTS 


slightly — if imperceptibly to the naked eye 
— open or close the “U.” Light passing 
through the fiber will be lost to either a 
lesser or greater degree as a result. The re¬ 
maining light is transmitted through the 
fiber to an optical detector at some other 
location. There the modulation of the bend 
radiation is translated into a measurement 
of strain, which is a fractional change in 
distance between two points on a surface. 
Says Jim: “At this stage, we can detect 
strains of 10 parts per million.” 

The fiberoptic high-pressure gauge 
works -on a slightly different principle. In 
this case, the radius of the fiber bend re¬ 
mains fixed. A bare glass fiber is placed 
within an optical fluid — any of various 
kinds of oils. Optically, this fluid replaces 
the normal cladding material. 

Under normal pressure, the fluid’s index 
of refraction is considerably less than that 
of the glass. Under added pressure, the fluid 


is compressed and its index of refraction in¬ 
creases, permitting more light to leak out at 
the bends. 

“Increased pressure causes greater 
light loss,” says Jonathan. “Some of this 
loss can be translated into a measurement 
of pressure.” 

Fiberoptic gauges do have one draw¬ 
back: a nuclear device produces gamma 
rays that cause luminescence in the fiber 
for as long as the gamma ray pulse lasts. 
The fiber then rapidly darkens. Recovery 
time from darkening varies from milli¬ 
seconds to hours depending on the impurity 
content of the fiber and the temperature. 

“There’s no way luminescence and sub¬ 
sequent darkening are going to be avoided 
without extensive shielding,” says Jon. 
“But in the lab we’ve developed fiberoptic- 
based sensors, or transducers, that 
measure strain and high pressure in compo¬ 
nents subject to radiation. With the appro¬ 


priate choice of fiber material for both the 
gauge and the leads, contamination of the 
data can be avoided during the most critical 
measurement period. 

Both fiberoptic gauges will undergo field 
tests during Midas Myth, an underground 
nuclear test scheduled for February 1984 at 
NTS. 

Adds Jon: “Although we’ve designed 
these gauges specifically for the U.S. 
nuclear weapons test program, the gauge 
designs should also prove useful in geo¬ 
physical or industrial application where an 
alternative to electrical gauges is needed. 


EXPERTISE REVISITED

[ Robert Goddard) is only professing to be 
ignorant of elementary physics if he thinks 
that a rocket can work in a vacuum.” (Edi¬ 
torial, New York Times, 1920) 



Cultural A wareness Colloquia 


Historian to 
Speak Oct. 27 

“Anglo-American Culture in New Mex¬ 
ico” is the topic of the second in the series of 
cultural awareness colloquia sponsored by 
Dept. 3510. It’s presented by a speaker with 
all the credentials — Marc Simmons. 

Simmons is a historian, author, column¬ 
ist, and translator who has been associated 
with southwestern history for over 20 years. 
His writing and research have focused on 
the tricultural heritage of New Mexico. 

Among his twelve books and mono¬ 
graphs are Southwestern Colonial Iron¬ 
works; New Mexico, A History (winner of 
1977 History Award from Border Regional 
Library Association) ; Spanish Government 
in New Mexico; Witchcraft in the South¬ 
west; People of the Sun; and his most re¬ 
cent, Albuquerque, A Narrative History 
(winner of 1983 Western Writers of America 
“Golden Spur” award for best non-fiction 
book on the West; a plug here — it’s on sale 
at LAB NEWS office for $17.50). 

Of his colloquium topic, Simmons says: 
During the long territorial period 
(statehood was not achieved until 
1912), New Mexico retained much of 
the atmosphere of the Wild West. 
Only with the great influx of new¬ 
comers during World War II and the 
subsequent flowering of scientific 
research did the state, as part of the 
newly self-conscious Sunbelt, enter 
the mainstream of American life. 

Some would debate that last statement, 
but the talk should be a provocative one. It’s 
at 10:30 to 11:30 on Thursday, Oct. 27, in 
Bldg. 815.

Sandian Named General In National Guard 


George Treadwell (6221) was promoter 
recently to the rank of brigadier general in 
the New Mexico Army National Guard. He 
also became commander of the 111th Air 
Defense Artillery Brigade with units com¬ 
prising more than 3000 troops. 

George joined the National Guard in 1948 
in Wisconsin where he attended Marquette 
University. He joined Sandia with a 
mechanical engineering degree in 1953 and 
transferred to the New Mexico National 
guard with the rank of second lieutenant. 
Promotions came regularly through the 
years as George performed various duties 
and attended service schools, including the 
Army War College. 

He has served as platoon leader, battery 
commander, engineering officer, supply of¬ 
ficer, intelligence officer, communications 
officer, commander of a maintenance bat¬ 
talion, and deputy commander of the 111th 
Brigade. He has participated in the head¬ 
quarters group that conducts overseas 
exercises several times a year. 

The 111th Air Defense Artillery Brigade 
has a long and distinguished history. Its ori¬ 
gins go back to a cavalry unit organized 
during the Civil War. It later saw action 
during the Spanish-American War, served 
as an infantry unit in WWI, and, as the 200th 



GEORGE TREADWELL (6221) is newly ap¬

tial unit citations. 



Fun & Games 


Triathlon — Modest but muscular Jim 
Harrison (5111) was overall winner of the 
Fountain Mountain Triathlon in Phoenix on 
Oct. 2 with an elapsed time of 10 hours 16 
minutes, 17 minutes ahead of his nearest 
competition. The feat involved a 3.1-mile (5 
km), swim, a 93-mile (150 km) bicycle race, 
and a 26.2-mile marathon run. “I was really 
surprised to win,” Jim reports; “after all, I 
do work 40 hours a week so I can’t train the 
way some of the participants do.” Next 
goal: the three-day super-triathlon on 
Hawaii’s Big Island in late December. Con¬ 
gratulations, Jim, and good luck!

Lumbarjacking — Eight out of ten 
Americans suffer back problems at one 
time or another. Equally shocking — most 
sickness absence is caused by back-related 
problems. Ergo, SERP is offering a Back 
Problems Prevention class starting Oct. 25 
at the Coronado Club. The 7-8:30 class will 
span four consecutive Tuesdays and cover 
such topics as basic anatomy and mechan¬ 
ics of the spine, explanations of various 
back injuries, fitness, nutrition, and stress 
control. Preventing back problems these 
days emphasizes exercise — come dressed 
for some. (Persons with chronic or debili¬ 
tating back problems must have a doctor’s 
OK to participate in the class.) Cost is $12; 
call Recreation Manager Tom Lenz at 
4-8486 for signup. 



BOB PARKS (7624) shot a hole-in-one at Arroyo 
del Oso’s 167-yard, par 3 number 16 hole recent¬ 
ly during the two-day SEGA Cup tournament. 
Although the shot helped, it wasn’t enough for 
Bob to place in the meet. He has been golfing 
since 1970; his handicap is 17. 

Skiing — Yes, it’s time to take those old 
muscles, tendons, and various ligaments 
out of mothballs and get them into shape for 
the upcoming ski season. A Ski Conditioning 
class will be held at the Coronado Club 
starting Oct. 25. It’s 7-8:30 each Tuesday 
and Thursday through Nov. 17. Klaus 
Weber, UNM cross country ski coach, will

injury on the slopes this winter. Class is de¬ 
signed for both alpine (/) and nordic (—) 
skiers; cost is $15. Call Tom on 4-8486 for 
signup. 

Mountain Running 
Workshop Set 
Friday, Oct. 21 

“Mountain Running — Fitness Over For¬ 
ty” is the title of a workshop scheduled Fri¬ 
day, Oct. 21, starting at 5 p.m. at the Coro¬ 
nado Club. Noted speakers, slide and film 
presentations, and a buffet dinner are part 
of the event. 

Speakers include Jack Douthett, moun¬ 
taineer and master runner, and Klaus 
Weber, multi-athlete and UNM cross coun¬ 
try ski coach. Dr. Norm Katz will discuss a 
psychological approach to long distance 
running and fitness, Dr. Kay Steffen, the 
physiology of aging. John Cappis, top moun¬ 
tain master runner, will share the joys and 
danger of mountain running. Jesse (The 
Roadrunner) Castaneda will talk about pre¬ 
paring for ultra-ultra events and motivation 
on the road. 

“This event is for the runner searching 
to understand the untested limits of human 
performance,” says Tom Lenz, Coronado 
Club recreation director. “It should answer 
questions and shed new light on the perfor¬ 
mance standards of the maturing individual 
in our society. It offers some of the scien¬ 
tific background and brings participants in 
contact with some of the athletes whose 
lives and life styles are organized around 
long-distance activities.” 

Participants may also view or take part 
in mountain runs on Saturday and Sunday, 
Oct. 22 and 23. 

Fee for the workshop is $7.50 (includes 
buffet) payable at the Coronado Club office. 


*MusicV 

Women don’t sing 
barbershop quartet 
music. 

So Karen Hill 
(1632/1633) contented 
herself with church 
choir, high school 
chorus, college choir, 
and traditional quartet 
singing. Then, eight 
years ago, she dis¬ 
covered she was wrong, 
that being male was not a prerequisite for 
barbershop singing; and she was delighted 
to become a member of the Enchanted 
Mesa Chapter of Sweet Adelines. 

Along with jazz, barbershop music is a 
truly American musical form. Barbershop 
singing evolved many years ago when, with 
few forms of entertainment easily avail¬ 
able, family and guests gathered in the par¬ 
lor to sing, often with no instrumental 
accompaniment. Because the singers were 
usually untrained, the melodies had to be 
simple and the harmonies complementary 
and easy to improvise. The result was a 
vibrant four-part harmony sound. 

This simple, informal style of entertain¬ 
ment has developed into a very strict 
musical form with only certain chords and 
chord progressions allowed. It also differs 
from the traditional soprano-alto-tenor- 
bass musical form in that the melody is not 
on the top of the chord, but in the middle. 
And, yes, women do sing the tenor, lead 
(melody line), baritone, and bass parts 
(albeit an octave or so higher than their 
male counterparts). 

Karen sings a lead part; she’s one of 50 
members in the local group. Trish Graham 
provides the musical leadership for the 
chorus. She was a member of the High 
Country Chapter in Denver, the 1980 Inter¬ 
national Championship Chorus. The women 
practice once a week and perform for ser¬ 
vice organizations, conventions, churches, 
and nursing homes. Currently the chorus is 
rehearsing for its annual show to be pre¬ 
sented next week. 

Sweet Adelines has chapters in the U.S., 
Canada, England, Scotland, Germany, 
Sweden, and Japan, and is divided into 27 
regions; the Albuquerque chapter is in a 
region including Southern California, 
Arizona, New Mexico, and El Paso. Each 
spring the choruses compete for the 
regional championship. The regional 
champs then compete for the title of Inter¬ 
national Champion. Next March, the 
regional championship will be held in 
Albuquerque. 

The annual show, “Music! Music! 
Music! ” will include the full chorus, several 
quartets, and the El Paso Sun Gold Chapter 
as guest chorus. A matinee performance 
will be given at 2 p.m. and an evening show 
at 8:15 p.m. at the KiMo Theatre on Satur¬ 
day, Oct. 22. Tickets are $4 and can be pur¬ 
chased at the door; a portion of the pro¬ 
ceeds will be donated to Hospice. 

The chorus is now accepting auditions 
for membership and has placements avail¬ 
able in all sections. Call Karen (822-8491) 
for more information or for tickets to the 
show. 




TALENT TOWARD A PURPOSE — filling the Employee Contribution Plan coffers — delighted Sandians at the 
Employee Concert Party last week. Clockwise from top: President Dacey tells the crowd how he became 
“the ruler of the ECP,” a parody on a Gilbert & Sullivan ditty. Allison Davis (1813) showed why she has lead 
roles with ACLOA, and Don Marchi (2512) made memorable magic. Mary Rodriguez (3412) added a Near 
Eastern flavor to the festivities. Ken Miller (400) picked and plucked his way to ECP glory. Gene Ives (5130) 
sang “The Impossible Dream” — which is not the slogan of the ECP goal-setters. And “Roberta" Lassiter 
(5268) noted that Sandia has “a president who can carry a tune, and a staff that can put things on the moon.” 
Thanks from all of us to Ellen Cronin, John Gardner, Plant Engineering, Motion Picture-Video Services and all 
the others who helped. And a special thanks to all the entertainers — you were great!

Me dical Corner 

Wellness — Sandia Style 

By Susan Harris (3330) 


Events Calendar 

Oct. 17-21 — Urban Open Spaces Exhibit 
from the Smithsonian, Main Library, 
766-5045. 


Our story thus far: Wellness is an atti¬ 
tude — a positive approach to health. It is 
taking responsibility for our own health and 
maximizing our well-being, rather than 
relying exclusively on therapy to make us 
well once we’re ill. Wellness seeks to pro¬ 
mote life-style choices that enhance the 
quality of life. 

Preventive medicine, health promotion, 
wellness programs — call it what you will — 
all seek to reduce the most common causes 
of premature death and illness. The big kill¬ 
ers today are the so-called life-style dis¬ 
eases, such as heart disease and lung can¬ 
cer, and motor vehicle accidents. 

The causes of these killers and their un¬ 
derlying risk factors are known — smoking, 
high cholesterol, high blood pressure, se¬ 
dentary life-style, obesity, a high-fat diet, 
alcohol and drug abuse, stress, careless 
driving, and failure to use seat belts. Every 
one of these risks involves a life-style 
choice, and most are controllable. That fact 
lies at the heart of disease prevention, 
health promotion, and ultimately, wellness. 

How is Sandia Medical helping em¬ 
ployees reduce these risks and achieve the 
goal of wellness? The primary program is 
the periodical physical examination. More 
than 98 percent of you volunteer for these. 
During the second half of each exam, you 
discuss Medical’s findings about your 
health with a doctor or nurse practitioner. 
You learn about habits that are harmful to 


your health, and you are encouraged to 
make the changes that would allow you to 
live longer — and better. 

In addition, the Medical Department of¬ 
fers a number of programs encouraging 
life-style changes that have a high proba¬ 
bility of improving your health: smoking 
cessation, blood pressure education and 
control, alcohol and drug abuse treatment, 
nutritional counseling, exercise counseling, 
and stress management classes. These pro¬ 
grams can help you reduce the risk factors 
that contribute to illness or premature 
death. 

If you’re a do-it-yourself type, Medical 
has printed and audiovisual materials to 
tell you how to progress toward wellness. 
Pamphlets such as “Want to Be Healthier 
and Live Longer?” and a three-part film 
series on positive approaches to well-being 
are available. And the Tech Library has a 
number of books related to health available 
for check-out. The Library also has video¬ 
tape of a colloquium, “How is Your Health 
and Wellness?” Curl up with a good video¬ 
tape sometime and live longer as a result! 

The final question you should ask your¬ 
self is: Will I live my life in a way that en¬ 
hances my health, rather than a way that 
diminishes it? Sandia Medical wants to help 
you choose health and a high level of “well¬ 
ness.” 

Coming next: The economic aspects of 
wellness — or lack thereof.

Take Note 



HERMAN ROSER, DOE'S assistant secretary for defense programs, tosses a spadeful of dirt to break 
ground for Sandia's $39 million Simulation Technology Laboratory in Area IV. The facility is designed es¬ 
pecially for testing nuclear weapon systems for vulnerability and survivability within intense radiation environ¬ 
ments. Work at the STL will center on simulating the x-ray gamma radiation that would result from nuclear de¬ 
vices detonated as countermeasures. Other shovelers (from left): Col. David Scott, commander, 1606th Air 
Base Wing, KAFB; former US senator Harrison Schmitt; George Dacey, Sandia president: Rusty Shafer, the 
STL’s principal architect; and Ray Romatowski, manager of DOE's Albuquerque Operations Office. The facil¬ 
ity is scheduled for completion during the summer of 1985. 


A conference entitled “Energy, Environ¬ 
ment, and the Economy in the Southwest” 
takes place at the Hilton on Oct. 27-29. Spon¬ 
sored by Americans for Rational Energy 
Alternatives, the conference will address 
such issues as how energy and growth af¬ 
fect jobs, the environment, and business 
conditions in the Southwest ; whether the US 
has abandoned its commitment to develop 
its coal, oil, gas, and shale resources; the 
future of nuclear energy; the risks of inter¬ 
national military conflict resulting from the 
US energy situation; how “no-growth” 
philosophies affect the political process; 
and whether legislative and regulatory 
decisions affect the ability of utilities to 
meet future energy needs. Conference fee is 
$125. For more information, write Ms. Pat 
Wainwright, AREA Executive Director, 
Box 11802, Albuquerque, 87192.

A one-day Energy Information Ex¬ 
change is set for Oct. 21 at the Sheraton Old 
Town. It’s a working conference sponsored 
by the NM Energy Publications Council and 
funded by the NM Energy Research and De¬ 
velopment Institute. The conference is de¬ 
signed to give energy information pro¬ 
ducers, disseminators, and users a chance 
to exchange ideas, report current activities, 
assess future info needs, and plan methods 
to transfer info to NM citizens. Nine presen¬ 
tations and five workshops are planned. The 
$20 registration fee includes a luncheon. 
Visit LAB NEWS for program and registra¬ 
tion form.

Allison Davis (1813) has a lead role in 
Civic Light Opera’s production of The Fan- 
tasticks. Unlike the genre of musicals that 
dazzle with hundreds of cast members and 
tens of sets, the show is a bittersweet but 
heartwarming little gem. Popular too — it’s 
played twice a night for 23 years in New 
York. The show runs tonight through Sun¬ 
day at Albuquerque Little Theatre with Fri¬ 
day and Saturday tickets $8.50 and Sunday 
tickets $7.50 ($1 discount for ACLOA and 
ALT season ticketholders). Curtain at 8, 
Sundays at 2.

Favorite Old Photo 



This photograph of a group of rather dash¬ 
ing young men was taken about 1903 in Dus- 
seldorf, Germany. That’s my father, Oreste 
Sr., at the far left. They were 10 Italian 
marble masons who had left northern Italy 
to find work in Germany. After three years 
of saving his money, Dad went back to Italy 
to marry my mother Edina. Later they emi¬ 
grated to the United States and to Utah 
where I was born. They operated an Italian 
market for many years. I’ll be tracing the 
family tree when I visit Italy next year. — 
Oreste (Rusty) Ganzerla (3155)

Coronado Club Activities 


October Bash 
Set on 22nd 


TONIGHT at Happy Hour, the Sandia 
Jazz Corporation (formerly Arlen Asher 
Trio) is on the bandstand while stuffed jum¬ 
bo shrimp is the dining room special at 
$6.95. In addition, the Club’s regular menu 
with appetizers, salads, steaks, seafood, 
and chicken is available. Happy Hour 
prices are in effect from 4:30 until 8:30 
when the music starts. 

THE BIG ONE this month is the October 
Bash set for the 22nd with Southside, a big 
seven-piece variety band, booked for the 
occasion. Chef Hank Perez offers red snap¬ 
per Vera Cruz as the dinner special, a fan¬ 
tastic buy at $8.25 for two. Cocktail hour 
starts about 5:30, dinner is served from 6 to 
8:30, and the music plays from 8:30 until 
12:30. Call 265-6791 for reservations. 

FRIDAY, Oct. 21, the W.D.C. Band is on 
the bandstand while the dining room special 
is a 9-oz. New York steak for $6.95. From 
7:30 until 8:30, Karen Edwards instructs 
free western dance lessons. 

A TWO-FOR-ONE Tuesday dining spe¬ 
cial is scheduled Oct. 25 with a steamship 
round of beef buffet featured at $9.95 for 
two. Call for reservations and stop by about 
6 p.m. for a relaxed evening in a candlelit 
atmosphere. 

CORONADO SKI CLUB holds its regular 
monthly meeting (third Tuesday each 
month of ski season) on Oct. 18 in the Club’s 
ballroom at 7 p.m. Presentations by the 
Sandia Peak Ski Area on the latest 
construction activities and development 
plans are scheduled along with the Ski 
Club’s usual door prizes. The Sandia Ski 
Patrol will also discuss its role. 

A Ski Equipment Clinic is set for 7 p.m. 
on Wednesday, Oct. 26, in the El Dorado 
Room. Open to everyone, the clinic should 
provide information useful at the Ski 
Patrol’s Ski Swap coming up Oct. 29. 

NOW IS THE TIME for Sandia organiza¬ 
tions planning Christmas parties to contact 
the Club office. Most dates are still open, 
and the Club offers a variety of party pack¬ 
ages. First come, first served. 

TRAVEL — The Club announces two 
new trips as travel suggestions during the 
Christmas break. Try a quick trip to Las 
Vegas by bus Dec. 26-29 and stay at the Las 
Vegas Club downtown. Cost is a bargain $99. 
Or make it to San Diego Dec. 26-30 by air for 
$310 double occupancy. The package in¬ 
cludes air fare, transfers, lodging, and ad¬ 
mission to Sea World, the San Diego Zoo, 
Disneyland, and a ride on the San Diego 
Duck (not a successor to the San Diego 
chicken, but a WWII-vintage amphibious 
landing craft). Deposit $200 right away at 
the Club office to ensure current air fare 
prices.

PICKUP- 


THE SOUDERS, Penny and Paul (5134) remind skiers and would-be skiers that the Sandia Peak Ski Patrol’s 
annual Ski Swap takes place the last weekend of October — 28, 29, and 30. “Bring equipment to sell on Fri¬ 
day,” says Paul. "Sale days are Saturday and Sunday.” Both daughter Penny and father Paul are Patrol mem¬ 
bers. Penny is a senior at UNM.

Q. This morning a sign appeared above 
the copy machine in the south wing of Bldg. 
800. It reads: “.Priority use by Divisions 154 
and 155. ” I thought that the copiers located 
throughout the Labs were for the use of any 
Sandia employee for official business pur¬ 
poses, without regard to organization 
number. I also thought that copiers were 
not to be tied up for more than five minutes 
at a time, and that if large quantities of 
copies are needed, the job can be done more 
efficiently and cheaply by the Rapid Ser¬ 
vice people. 

A. You are correct in your assumption 
that all copiers are for use by Sandia em¬ 
ployees. Occasionally, however, a par¬ 
ticular machine can be “captured” by an 
organization for short periods to expedite a 
priority task; as soon as the urgent copying 
is done, the machine should again be opened 
to general use. 

Also, quantities of 25 copies or more 
should be acquired from Rapid Services. 
Sometimes the rule is violated and we have 
to rely on peer pressures or the cooperation 
of employees to adhere to the rule. Unfor¬ 
tunately, this does not always work. 

We would hope that organizations that 
capture a particular copier for a priority 
job would kindly allow short interruptions 
in their job to accommodate a quick copy¬ 
ing requirement of another user.

Q. I park in the lot in front of Bldg. 802. 
Getting out of that lot is impossible after 
work because traffic on H Street blocks the 
exits. If there is a break, we still can’t get 
out because the pedestrians are every¬ 
where. I need to enter the left hand lane that 
goes west on H Street or turns left on Wyom¬ 
ing. But drivers and pedestrians won’t let us 
cross the right hand lane to reach the left 
hand lane. Would it be possible to direct the 
pedestrians to the south side of H Street? 
(Pedestrians also cause traffic to back up 
on H Street because traffic cannot make 
right turns onto Wyoming without running 
over pedestrians.) 

A. Over the years the entrances and ex¬ 
its to the parking lot in front of Bldg. 800 
have been changed many times in an effort 
to make the traffic flow better. While there 
are still some problems, I believe that it 
currently is the best that we can do. We 
tried to get the pedestrians to walk on the 
south side of H Street, but most of them in¬ 
sisted on walking on the north side so we 
provided a sidewalk. 

Since you want to go west on H Street, 
you may want to consider joining those 
pedestrians and park west of Wyoming.
