Dedicated to the propagation of a better understanding among all the peoples of the earth, and of those who are not of earth.


There are substantial differences of opinion among supposed experts, as to the amount of oil still available to the United States, as well as to the other countries of the world. Some estimate that, at the present rate of use, it will last for about 30 years. Others state, with some conviction, that with the constant increase in its use which will inevitably occur, it cannot last for more than 15. Still others fear that, for all practical purposes, it will be very scarce within ten years. No one really knows. All estimates are, and must be based upon oil still in the ground and, in most cases, in fields that have never actually been tapped or tested. Much of the oil in these fields may exist only in the wishful thinking of optimistic geologists and promoters. In an article in the Washington Star, by Stewart Udall, he points out the following facts – “U.S. production of both oil and gas continue to decline relentlessly. U.S. reserves of oil and gas likewise continue to dwindle, despite a doubling of exploratory drilling and (not withstanding expansive promises by some oilmen) not a single major new oil field has been discovered since the big arctic oil strike in Alaska nearly ten years ago. – As 1974 drew to a close our dreams of an offshore bonanza vanished as drilling demonstrated that the

2                                                    UNDERSTANDING

Destin Dome was a dry hole, and efforts to start oil shale development were abandoned by the oil companies.” On February 3rd of this year a report was released showing that the huge `Naval Reserve Field’ which has been held as an emergency oil source for the U.S. Navy for more than fifty years, is apparently a completely dry area. During the past three years drilling has been going on at a cost of more than sixty million dollars in an increasingly desperate attempt to open up the field. Of more than forty wells drilled however, not one has produced oil. If a few more of our vaunted `Reserves’ prove to be dry holes, our oil supply may be much smaller than anyone now suspects.

There are, of course, those who say that there is no need for us to concern ourselves with oil shortages since nuclear energy will soon supply all of our needs. Unfortunately, this is only one more of the forms of wishful thinking that is creating such a roadblock to the development of the perpetual and dependable energy sources that have served man since the beginning of his sojourn upon this planet. The problems It arising from the generation of nuclear energy are growing much faster than they can be solved, and any serious accident in any plant could shut down all of them indefinitely. Some of these problems are illustrated in an article by Alexander Cockburn and James Ridgeway, published in December 1977, and titled, `Incidents at Millstone I. – The explosions that shook the Millstone One nuclear power plant at Waterford, Connecticut, last week did not amount to “just a puff release of radiation,” as the officials of Northeast Utilities insist. In fact, before the day was over Governor Ella Grasso was ordering an investigation of the circumstances and handling of the accident; two officials of the Nuclear Regulatory Commission were rushing to the scene and a highly contaminated workman at the plant had been secluded in a special radiation-injuries room at Laurence & Memorial Hospitals in New London.

MARCH, 1978                             3

The accident, discounted as a common occurrence and “no public hazard” by federal as well as company officials, was – it now turns out – another in a long series of “events” which have plagued the plant since it began operations in 1970. It has been possible to piece together an intriguing saga of the every day life of a nuclear power plant, culminating in the December 13th malfunctioning of emergency preparedness procedures. Here are some of the highlights in the career of Millstone One.

“It is still difficult to determine exactly what happened at Millstone One, but at about 9:30 in the morning there was an explosion in pipes containing radioactive gases, possibly caused by the operations of a welder a short distance away. Nobody was hurt and the accident was not judged serious enough to warrant an immediate scram. Indeed, the `little explosion,’ as one NRC spokesman called it, was no extraordinary event. According to the NRC, there have been about two-dozen similar events at 10 boiling-water reactors within the last few years.

“The on-site officials at Millstone One, after some deliberation, decided to initiate a reduction of power, in anticipation of making repairs on broken equipment. The utility’s own communications office at Berlin, Connecticut, 50 miles away, was not informed of such developments for an hour or so. Nor, indeed, was the governor’s office, even though established procedures laid down that it should be informed in the event of a significant reduction in generating capacity.


“The decision to start a total `orderly shutdown’ came between 10 and 11 a.m. after utility officials noticed that measuring instruments on the exhaust stack had become `erratic.’ At noon, the governor’s office finally got the news that there had been an explosion at Millstone One. At 12:55, Northeast Utilities phoned the NRC, and was in the midst of describing the first explosion when at 1 p.m., a second bang took place.

“This explosion, which occurred in a room at the base of the stack, blew an 80-pound steel door off its

4                                                    UNDERSTANDING

hinges, propelling it into a warehouse 130 feet away. The pressure concussion knocked an employee, Robert Griswold, off his feet. Contaminated with radioactivity, he was taken to the hospital. There was, say utility officials, `a very small puff release’ of radioactivity.

“At 1:01, the system was scrammed, and within an hour the NRC had two experts rushing to the scene. The state police, who had remained in total ignorance of the first explosion, got word about the second one at 2:05. They were more fortunate than the governor, who finally got the word about explosion number two at 2:55 or 3:15, depending on versions from the utility and the governor’s office. A spokesman for the utility said that some local officials would scarcely have needed telephonic contact since they would have heard the bang from the plant site, anyway.

 ♦  There was the time when the tubes in the main condenser ruptured, with the result that Northeast Utilities found itself pumping sea water into the reactor. Sea water, of course, contains salt and the stainless steel components at the heart of the reactor began to crack.

 ♦  About a year ago, Millstone One went `critical’ without forewarning. The reactor was immediately `scrammed’ (i.e., shut down) to avoid a violent power surge which would have ruptured the plant and caused serious radioactive pollution.

 ♦  At about the same time, a tub full of radioactive water suddenly shot out of a vent in the side of the plant after a tube ruptured in the heat exchanger as a result of vibrations. The water not only contaminated the plant grounds but set off radiation detectors at the Groton submarine base five miles away. The sub-mariners at the base, which deals constantly with nuclear materials, have been increasingly irritated by Millstone One. Their own delicate sensors used to monitor their operations are continually being agitated by doses of radioactivity shot into the atmosphere by Northeast Utilities. They feel they are suffering guilt by association. Officials at Northeast Utilities discount this, saying the Navy sensors have been set

MARCH, 1978                             5

off by factors as innocent as `a temperature inversion.’ “The slowly mounting public fear of nuclear power comes at an embarrassing time for the administration, whose energy policy is predicated on the proliferation of hundreds of light-water reactors. The nuclear industry itself, desperate at the lack of new business, is saying that a flood of orders in the next three years is crucial to its survival. The Carter administration is quietly trying to reduce controls – as ineffective as they may now be – on the nuclear industry, to speed up plant construction. The action of the jury in Portland and perturbation in Connecticut presage, against such a background, a major political crisis for the government’s nuclear policy in the next two years.” With Fossil fuels diminishing at a rate considerably greater than previously supposed, and with the increasing resistance to nuclear energy, it would seem that if the human race is indeed an intelligent species, as we have long pretended ourselves to be, we would be devoting a much greater effort to the development of the one inexhaustible energy source that has been heating, lighting and stimulating life on Earth for millions of years and will continue to do so for at least three billion years more. A source which delivers to this planet every day energy equal to fifty thousand kilowatt hours for every human being now living on earth. This amount, several thousands of times larger than all of the energy now being used by all of mankind, reaches the earth in areas that are readily available for collection and use. (The total energy reaching the earth from the sun is more than ten times this amount but reaches the earth in places where it would be costly to collect or use.)

It is not difficult to understand why so many primitive peoples worshiped the sun. It now appears that they may have been much more intelligent than we are.

Juliana Lewis

Like most other inventions, oil painting was not a sudden revelation. The Greek painters had sought to find a medium with which to mix their colors so that they would not stick indefinitely and not lose their brilliancy. Various mixtures such as vinegar and the whites of eggs were tried, but none met with success. The search went on for hundreds of years during which time there was no alternative to the awkward alfresco technique.

This technique was especially difficult if one was not painting directly on a wall but had to make a picture that could be moved. First, a piece of wood had to be covered with linen; then the linen covered with several coats of fine plaster of Paris, mixed with glue. Apprentices next rubbed the surface of the plaster until it was as smooth as polished marble. Upon this surface a preliminary drawing was transferred, as pencil drawings are transferred to lithographic stone. Usually a rough coat of green or brown pigment was applied as an under painting. After all of this, which took a considerable amount of time, the real paints, mixed with egg, were applied. But unlike oil painting, everything had to “set” right away. Nothing could be scraped off this stone like surface nor could one cover over possible errors with more paint.

Another distinct disadvantage was the green and brown under painting. After so long a time the real paint would begin to wear off and the picture would get a disagreeable brown or green hue. This method continued in use, however, until in the thirties of the fifteenth century when a rumor began to spread that in Flanders a completely new way of painting had been discovered.

MARCH, 1978                             7

The names of the discoverers were Huybrecht and Jan Van Eyck, two brothers from Maeseyck, Belgium. Huybrecht was the older of the two and Jan, almost fifteen years younger, had been his apprentice. It is not known where they learned their craft, but they were products of a school of painting entirely different from that produced by the great artists of Italy.

Much of their lives were spent in Flanders where they were known as deliberate and good workers. They were so alike in their style that later it was impossible to tell where the one had left off and the other continued on the famous altar-piece for Ghent’s Ancient St. Bavon’s.

Jan was court painter to the Count of Holland and Huybrecht was court painter to the Duke of Burgundy in Brussels until his death, at which time Jan succeeded him. Jan also took one long sea voyage, accompanying the embassy that Phillip the Good sent to Lisbon in 1428 to ask for the hand of Isabella of Portugal, and there he painted a picture of the future bride. Huybrecht died in Ghent in 1426. He was buried in the cathedral where you may still see his famous picture, the “Adoration of the Lamb”, which he painted for Jodocus Vydts. Jan died in Bruges in 1441 and lies buried in its church of St. Donat.

Although this is about all that is known of the Van Eyck brothers, other than in regard to their invention of oil painting, it is enough to tell us that they were straightforward craftsmen, contented to live as such but also conscious of the value of their work and the respect due them as masters of their trade.

During the fourteenth century the dukes of Burgundy owned the largest and most beautiful (and expensive) collection of illuminated manuscripts in all Europe. Flanders, after several French defeats which took place during the first fifteen years of the fifteenth century, had been flooded with expensive French manuscripts, sold by the wives of the French nobles to buy their husbands out of captivity. As a consequence the entire manuscript industry had moved to Belgium.

8                                                    UNDERSTANDING

The Van Eycks, living in this atmosphere, came upon the idea of painting what were to all intents and purposes merely enormously enlarged manuscript illustrations. And somehow or other it was their good fortune that at this critical moment they thought of substituting linseed oil for the old white of egg and vinegar.

They and their fellow workers, using these oils, painted religious pictures, portraits, landscapes and still lives and they learned to prepare their colors in such a way that they were able to defy both time and climate better than pictures painted hundreds of years afterwards. Their fame spread to every part of the world. They created a new enthusiasm for painting in Germany. They inspired the people of the Netherlands to great works, and the Italians are, of course, thanking them still.

UFO Department


by Charles Korhas

Flying saucers are nothing new. Back in the first century A.D., the Roman naturalist Pliny the Elder mentioned in the second book of his Natural History many unidentified flying objects that had been reported in his time or earlier.

In 86 B.C., he says, a fiery shield ran across the sky, generating sparks as it went, from west to east over a place he does not name. This sounds remarkably like the silver-disk UFO’s that have been seen so frequently over the past three decades, only described in terms of things familiar to an ancient Roman.

MARCH, 1978                             9

In 66 B. C., during the consulship of Gnaeus Octavius an Gaiusn Scribonius, the Roman proconsul Silanus and some other members of his household saw a spark falling from a star and come close to Earth, then fly back into the heavens. It is unlikely, if not impossible, that this spark actually made it all the way from some star to this planet in one night, considering how far the stars are from us. It probably came from closer to Earth, and Silanus misjudged its distance. The spark couldn’t have been a meteor; meteors don’t come near the ground and then fly off the way this thing did.

In 103 B.C., the residents of the cities Ameria and Tuder saw two heavenly armies, one coming from the east and one from the west, meeting each other in combat. The army of the west emerged victorious.

Pliny also reports that lights flying in the night sky have been seen during the consulship of Gaius Caecillus and Gnaeus Papirius and at many other times.

They are still being seen today, and they are as much a mystery to many people today as they were to Pliny.

Poet’s corner


Harry A. Koch

Out across the rural roads

I found a country store,

With cigarette and soft drink ads

Tacked on its squeaky door.

Its gas pump scarred from years of use

Set off its faded front,

And sagging platforms held most things

A customer might want.

10                                                  UNDERSTANDING

Jammed in between the pots and pans

Were sacks of corn and beans,

Along with feed and medicines

And dust-specked magazines.

Near gallon jugs and gingham bolts

Were meats and longhorn cheese,

And patches for the overalls

Of kids who wore through knees.

A battered stove threw off much heat

Which kept the loafers warm,

And barrels filled with sugar

Gave an added air of charm.

Amidst the smells of kerosene

Fresh fruits and chocolate bars,

The odor of ground coffee

Blended strongly with cigars.

The friendly folks who owned the place

Helped load the buyer’s ice;

Supplied free information

And, when asked, gave free advice.

And usually when neighbors called

For groceries or for mail,

They bought a can of snuff or two

For Grandpa’s diner pail.

This was the store where mothers

Bought confections and new shoes;

A place where farmers often stopped

To catch the latest news.

This place along the rural roads

With shelves all stocked galore,

Shall always mean much more to me

Than just a country store.

The second important event scheduled for April 7th-9th at Understanding is the Congress of Understanding and Mutual Agreement. Fourteen hundred invitations have been mailed to leaders and participants in the fields of parapsychology, metaphysics, and Psychic Development to attend this very important Congress. Some speakers for the occasion are William David from the ESP Center in Houston, TX and George Belutza from the Rosicrucian Center in San Jose, CA, Louis Russo from Iamme Center in L.A. and our own Daniel Fry.

The congress will open at 10:30 AM April 7th. Food is included in the donation which will be asked at the door. (For detailed information on this write David Coleman, 3238 E. Earll Drive, Phoenix, AZ 85018. The Congress will focus its attention on the Area of Mutual Agreement, the Understanding proposal to establish peace on this planet. If we are to maintain this civilization and this culture on this planet, serious thinking must be given now to action for bringing it about. We must quit talking and ACT!

The public is cordially invited to attend. In fact, you are urged to do so. A Board of Directors semi-annual meeting will follow the Congress.

Scheduled in March, 4 representatives of Findhorn Community in Scotland for a three day workshop on New Age living fundamentals.

Wedding Bells at Tonopah

On January 18th, 1978 Dr. Daniel W. Fry performed his first wedding ceremony at the Understanding Headquarters Center for Edna Sander and Forest Hill. It was a beautiful occasion with the first church of

MARCH, 1978                             13

Understanding decorated with flowers and candles. The bride was one of the happiest seen lately! And the groom was positively radiant! Music for the occasion was played and sung by Mark Bigler, pianist and David Coleman, one of Understanding’s new directors.

A reception followed the ceremony, given by Alice Bitz and Florence Fry with a lot of help from Hetty Miller (also a director of Understanding), and Paul and Dottie Wilkinson from Phoenix. (Paul has become the Poetry Editor for Understanding.) A long and happy journey together is anticipated for the happy couple. They will reside in Tonopah where they have become owners of the Exxon filling station there. (Motorists are alerted to do their buying there!)


Mrs. Marlys Tennyson Binger

My charge account numbers are so easy to remember –

Why is it, then, that I can’t make my checkbook balance?

I can remember all the important holidays from January to December –

Why, then, can’t I remember the amount of that check for the valance?

I can recite the whole Gettysburg Address for anyone who will listen –

Still, I can’t seem to manage to recall the sum paid to the plumber.

A discussion with my spouse about the numbers that are missing –

Can oft times be solved by the ancient art of kissing.

Louise Kidder Sparrow

The cloud of mind discharges its accumulated lightning.” (Prometheus Unbound)

As a person enters upon his 92nd year, a day comes when he asks himself: “How have I arrived at this age, when for several years I have felt equally ready to go or stay?”

Today we have so many nonagenarians each one of us may have his own answer to this question. With your kind indulgence may I give you mine.

Rather than amuse myself — the procrustean way –by mentioning every subordinate explanation, of which there are a large number, I shall plunge at once into the crystal clear waters of my chief belief concerning my topic: How to Live Long and Enjoy It.

May I digress long enough to prove my human weaknesses, by frankly admitting that I do not always enjoy it — tant s’en faut! — there are many hours, or even days, when, were you to hear my muffled occasional groans, and behold ….. but this is sufficient revelation of “the other side of the coin.”

You may accuse me now of exaggerating my joy in living, but bravely I shall keep my promise. “If the heart be true you can accomplish anything.” Here briefly is my chief belief on this subject, proved to be efficacious by the past ten or twelve years of a way of life peculiar to me:

“Every night have an interesting activity, mental, physical or spiritual planned, for the following day.” Justice Holmes once said that were it not for the mosquito swarms of little necessary chores which have to be attended to each day he might be able to accomplish something!

This “mosquito swarm” of necessary chores related to upkeep, increases with age, or so it seems, as it takes us so much longer than it used to, to perform

MARCH, 1978                             15

the simplest tasks. We are only too happy to profit by any help available, so as to save our strength — or rather bolster our weakness — to attempt the planned activity. This may be possibly nothing more than copying a poem, (scribbled perhaps in the middle of the night), writing a letter, putting order in our papers (a never-ending chore, not to be counted really as a planned activity), reading a good magazine, a fine book, doing two more rows of knitting on a stole for a beloved daughter-in-law, or —. But I see I am mentioning the very slight activities of greatly advanced age.

Let us mention those that were possible from eighty to ninety: Writing (ex. a Chronicle of Travel years. The fun of illustrating it with picture postals, photos and sketches), water color or oil painting, memoirs recorded in Narrative Poems, assembling of childhood lyrics, months-long correspondence courses in any subject that appeals to one’s taste: ex., a refresher course in English, or in any one of half a dozen loved languages, or even in Russian or Greek or Latin –a course in Art or in Journalism — there is, to be sure, no end to possibilities. All have their triumphs and failures.

We might mention here a pregnant thought: Does not our old age actually have its beginning in youth? Any may we not fruitfully be preparing for a happy, productive old age, when, from our earliest days, we encourage and cultivate our interests along the lines that naturally appeal to us: science, mathematics, natural history, the humanities.

We believe that every human being is endowed at birth with one or more God-given abilities or talents which it rests with him to develop and contribute to life, and that each human being should feel the joy of creating, however modestly, something as long as he lives — even if only indifferent poetry — hopefully good poetry. For, as Keats says in “Endymion” poetry is “a friend to soothe the cares and lift the thoughts of men. “

Berenson wrote many lines that live in my memory:

16                                                  UNDERSTANDING

(not in his exact words) “One may feel too well to do nothing, but not well enough to do anything.”

But, at least, there are myriad ways of ameliorating the condition of advancing age, and of avoiding the danger of ennui for oneself and for those around us.

Plan your next day’s fascinating activity the night before.

Caution: beware of anticipating it with so much eagerness that you lie awake impatient for morning to come, or, not able to wait, turn night into day! Put yourself to sleep, if need be, with transcendental meditation, and prayer.


Commencement Day for two of Earth’s great souls came on January 27th an February 9th, Dr. Neva Dell Hunter and George W. Van Tassel respectively.  .

Both were dedicated to healing through service to mankind, George through construction of the Integratron and Dr. Hunter . through opening the mind to the flow of Divine wisdom and balancing the human aura by techniques given to her by Dr. Robert Gordon, a teacher on the higher levels of consciousness.

Most of the readers of Understanding magazine know George personally but for those who do not, George was visited by extraterrestrial beings in the early years of this century and given instructions for building the Integratron, a device for extending man’s life on this planet to nearly double that of the present. From that hour on, George’s life was dedicated to securing funds and materials to begin the building, and to educating all who would listen, to its use and purpose on this planet. It was a gigantic undertaking!

MARCH, 1978                             17

Nothing like it has ever been heard of. It’s principles of operation were beyond the limits of Earth man’s comprehension. But George understood because he too came to this Earth as have many others from cultures far in advance of most of us. These projects, initiated by George will continue.

A sensitive, loving super-soul has graduated to higher realms. We shall miss him, oh, so much, but he would not wish us to mourn, but rather to dedicate our lives more fully to the service of our fellow man in the way which we may best serve.

Memorial services for George will be (or were, if your magazine is late) on March 12th, his birthdate, in the Mental Physics Center between Yucca Valley and Joshua Tree, California. All of George’s friends will be with him there in spirit if not in body for George will most certainly be there too! Services are scheduled for 2:00 PM.

Dr. Neva Dell Hunter founded the Quimby Center in Alamogordo, New Mexico many years ago. Hundreds of students have found the Way to the Light through her teaching and many have been healed through balancing of the human aura by her helpers under the direction of Robert Waterman, Director of Educational Programs. To be in Dr. Hunter’s presence was to feel the radiant spirit of love which permeated the entire residence in Tularosa where she e spent most of her  time in the last few years.

Dr. Hunter was also contacted by extraterrestrial beings on many occasions though the encounters were not of the Third Kind but rather psychically and mentally. As with all those who have had such an encounter Dr. Hunter’s life was dedicated to service and through that service she touched the lives of a majority of Alamogordo’s population and that touch left them changed too. No store or filling station clerk or service man could be found who had not known Dr. Hunter’s smile and greeting words “Blessings and Light!” The entire community will miss her much,

18                                                  UNDERSTANDING

her students will miss her keenly for they were devoted to her. And through that devotion will carry on her work to make her dream of a college come true. Services for her were held following cremation at the Hamilton Chapel, January 30th.

Hail and farewell, beloved two!
