Solar heating

Utilizing the most basic form of energy

The solar age in heating and cooling is dawning as more and more people look to the sun for answers to energy needs in a time of soaring costs for conventional fuels.

Although solar technology is still in a developing state and is not yet economically feasible on a wide scale, individual home applications are becoming more evident in conjunction with conservation, better insulation and efficiency.

A part of the future is now for W. C. Mattis who is retiring soon from DuPont after 27 years as a chemical engineer and who is building an effectively energy-conserving home in the Gettysburg subdivision of Lugoff.

Not only is Mattis building an energy-efficient house through use of extra insulation, but he is incorporating a primary solar heating and cooling system into the design of his house which should supply 60-70 percent of his energy needs including heating hot water.

…The solar system has a back-up electric heating and cooling pump which can utilize well water for cooling in summer…

Championship wrestling program set for arena

Mid-Atlantic Championship wrestling will return to the Camden Arena with the masked Superstar meeting “Mighty Igor” in the main event of a four match program scheduled for Friday night, February 3.

It has been a couple of months since the wrestlers last made a stand at the Arena and an all-star program is being presented by the Camden-Kershaw Recreation Department for its first offing of 1968.

The masked “Superstar,” who has $5,000 at stake if any wrestler can pin him, or make him give up by a submission hold, will be in for a rough event with the Polis strongman, “Igor.”

Longtime favorite Johnny Weaver will take on the burly “Missouri Mauler” in the semi-final.

Tag team action will be the night’s second match when Abe Jacobs and young Jerry Stubbs unite to take on the rough and tumble duo of “Russian Stomper” and “Hartford Love.”…
