Researchers find lifestyle affects energy consumption An energy study conducted by two architectural researchers at Texas A&M University has found that living habits - as much as construction features - account for significant dif- ferences in residential energy consum- ption. Energy-use data collected over d 13- month period showed that some houses used up to five times as much energy as others of similar size and construction, said Larry Degelman, a professor of architecture and building construction and one of the researchers. "The largest variability in energy use was unexplained," he said. "This unex- plained variance was assumed to be due to lifestyle. Energy use really has a lot more to do with lifestyle than the construction features that we studied." a By JOHN H. COX Staring at the mangled remains of his 1968 Buick I., hbre this morning, Charles E. "Chuck" Hill lamented, "If I'd had !i5 last night, I'd been with them." Just hours before, three of Hill's co-workers and two others had their lives snuffed out as the Buick and a 1964 Chevrolet Bel Air crashed head-on on FM 2329 (Pickins Spur ); another co-worker remains in critical condition. Pronounced dead at the scene by Justice of the Peace Precinct 5 Judy Newman was Benigno "Ben- ny" Garza Jr., 27, driver of the Buick in addition to passengers Michael Wayne Dodd, 24, and Mon- te Keith Dodd, 20, all of Athens. Barbara Jean Bone, 22, of Malakoff, driver of the Chevrolet and a passenger, Carl Lee Kirk- patrick, 23, of Eustace, also perished. Another Athenian, Harold Eugene "Gene" McAhee, 27, was removed from the Buick by' CareFlite helicopter medical at- tendunts and flown directly from the scene to Methodist Hospital in Dallas.

He had finished his 3 to II work shift with McAbee, the Dodds and Garsa Thursday night. They had left the Verna Drilling oil rig number 35, located 13 miles out of Henderson, looking forward to hdving two days off after six days of steady work. "We'd normally celebrate a little after our long work week," Hill. remarked, then made the com- ment about not having $5 being one reason for his not being in the death car. "My wife was feeling a little low and I decided it'd be best for me to try to comfort her last night. After hearing about the wreck this morning, she sure was glad I came home," he added. Fight preceded accident As bizzare as the accident itself were prior incidents involving some of the occupants. From what Hill and Chief Briggs disclosed, after leaving the rig and dropping off Hill, the four oil field workers went to Caney City to "celebrate."
