10A--T e Malak News, Thuruby, Feb. IMI 0 "Wood wrms you twice: ouee whe you cut it, end gain when you burn it." Houry David Tbornau Wood burnlng stoves in all shapes and are hack an over tlm United States. Or perhaps they never left. In any case it's fashionable to have a reminder of yesteryear in today's modern home, whether an antique or a replica stove. Franklin is hack without Ben and squat and tall stoves made from cast iron or steel are "in" apin. A homeowner intent on haaUng with wood must commit his own energy to save commercial ,mly costs. The work involved in feeding that fiery maw can be exhilarating and exhausting. Firewood must be chopped, sawed, spilt, hauled, stacked and protected from the elements. It's fun way to spend the weekend, but it gets tiring on a daffy basis. Plus, it can be discouraging and dangerous work for anyone unfamiliar with tlm tasks or not physically ready for the trouble getting wood reedy for tim fire takes. Of course, cut wood is available at prices pegged to inflation. 8o it's either your budget that hurts, or your hack. Feature stories are run continually in newspapers and mapzimm about her- mlts In caves, families in cabins, or the six New England governors and the premiers of Canada's five eastern provinces. Barns and stopped electric clocks were bathed in the soft glow of kerosene lamps. Students studied by candlelight, which also lit dining tables laden with staining corn chowder made on wood burning stoves. Because the total energy use of most small towns can be easily measured, full participation of the residents was necessary. Ministers preached conser- vaUon and one enterprising village had a town crier stalking through the streets "exhorting the townspeople to turn off unnecessary lights and ap- pliances," Time said. "St. Stephen (pop. 6,000), a prosperous Canadian fishing and lumbering town near the U. S. border, sliced 17.5 percent off its electricity consumption, edging out Monterey's (Mass.) 15.6 percent drop, to take the overall energy reduction award. ' ' Wood burning stoves are decorative, practical, unusual and mark the economical homemaker in this fuel- short era. They're being used in homes, cabins and cottages from coast to coast. Industry, too, is showing interest in wood. A recent study by Dartmouth's Thayer School of Energy noted that suburbanites in family rooms using "wood-fueled burners can prove more wood burning stoves.

Over I00 firms length and add an historical note to in that six-state region rely on wood for today's modern times, at least part of their energy supply, and Time magazine (Nov.

The town's efforts Some businessmen in industries that plywood, pulp and other wood products. However, other manufacturers contend that increased production of these produeta may increase the supply of wood for fuel. Wood-based production generates large amounts of wood and bark residue, and these leftovers can serve as readily-accessible energy reser- voln, especially for industry. In the country, you can burn wood, corn cobs, and discarded railroad ties. City dwellers can moonlight at con- struction sites, help tree removal com- r aognies dispose of debris or make paper s. These are newspapers rolled tightly after being soaked in water. Of course, they will only burn when dry. Many enterprising companies now sell Millions of joggers should learn to walk before they run, advises a car- dlovucular researcher and jogging en- thusiast. "You should be able to briskly walk for two hours (about six to eight miles) before you begin jogging. Running is really a progreuion of walking," said Dr. Elvln Smith, associate dean of paper-rolling gadgets. Researchers predict the trend toward wood burning stoves will increase in the next 20 years because wood is a renewable and abundant resource. That's unlike the fossil fuels: natural gas, oil, and coal. Like any fuel. of course, wood gives off pollutants when burned. One of these is "fly ash" and when wood is burned in large quantities, fly ash is visible to the naked eye. Industry cn cope with the problem by installing "scrubbers," but such equipment is very expensive. Wood, however, emits less sulfur dioxide nd carbon dioxide than coal, according to Dr. Kirk H. Willard, a scientist with the Environ- mental Protection Agency. e medicine at Texas A&M University. Smith says there is still controversy among scientists and physicians as to whether running or walking is better exercise, and no clear-cut answer seems ready to break away from the pack. So many variables are involved - prior heart damage, individual heart In the past three years, stove sales have tripled and the $8 to $I0 million stove industry is now showcasing new models to build its market. You can spend a little or a lot for a stove. They range from $60 to $900, made in the U. S. or imported. The energy crisis with rising fuel costs has sparked renewed interest in stoves. They're being used in vacation cabins nd as space heaters in bedrooms, garages, recreation rooms and basements. Today's stoves keep rooms warm, burn fuel slowly and re still putting out heat in the morning, unlike their predecessors. Stoves are effective, and the airtight models can burn for eight to 12 hours on a single load of wood.

Researchers do agree there are two ways of risking your health. Those are either doing nothing at all or starting out on a vigorous plan of exercise without a slow conditioning period. "One of the quickest ways to kill yourself is to jog just once a week for two miles as fast asyou can," said Smith, a former county president for the American Heart Association. "The person who enters into a vigorous exercise program with known or unknown previous heart damage runs a higher risk of heart attack. However, I believe you cannot hurt an already healthy heart, no matter how strenuous the exercise," he said.
