A Congressional hearing was conducted to consider a resolution which would authorize production of petroleum from the Elk Hills Naval Petroleum Reserve for national defense purposes and to provide for further exploration of the reserve The nature of the petroleum shortage in the US is examined, The capacity of the petroleum reserve to alleviate the situation is evaluated. Restrictions on the exploitation of the reserves are defined. The findings of the committee are based mainly on the testimony of selected witnesses who are knowledgeable of the crude oil situation.

As a result of the current economic environment, many organizations are having to operate with fewer resources. In the manpower area, these constraints have forced organizations to operate within well-defined hiring plans. Exceeding personnel ceilings is in most cases an intolerable situation. A mathemati. cal model, based on the theory of Markov processes, is presented which can be used to assess the chances of success of personnel hiring plans The model considers a plan to be successful if the final population size, at the end of the planning period, lies within a range specified by management. Although this model was developed to assess personnel hiring plans at the Goddard Space Flight Center, it is directly applicable wherever personnel hining plans are used.

This report, developed under the general guidance of the Energy Policy Office, is in response to the directive of the President on June 29. 1973, to the Chairman of the Atomic Energy Commission to review Federal and private energy R and D and to recommend an integrated program for the Nation. The report recommends (1) a national energy Rand D program, (2) a five-year. $10 billion Federal energy R and D program, and (3) the FY 1975 Federal budget for energy R and D. The recommended program, based on what is now known, is both necessary and sufficient to maximize energy Rand D's contribution to the Nation's energy goals, even so. 1985 is the earliest date by which self-sufficiency can reasonably be expected By 1980. the recommended program can reduce oil imports to half those currently projected, other extraordinary measures will be required to displace the other half.

A study to identify Federal agencies conducting programs directed toward technology transfer and utilization, determine and describe the methods used in programs, evaluate the effectiveness of methods, assess the extent these methods have been evaluated: and recommend policies for NSF and Federal government consideration. It was found that technology developed by federally funded programs since World War II has not resulted in widespread secondary applications of technology. An imbalance was found between the emphasis on collection, processing. and dissemination of technological information and the stimulation of secondary uses of technology. It is recommended the federal government redirect the emphasis and correct the imbalance by increasing funding for application, adaptation and utilization to at least the same level as that expended for information collection and dissemination. Other recommendations are made Author

A computer model is developed which evaluates the economics of offshore wind power systems and simulates the behavior of alternate designs Wind-powered generators either satisfy consumer demand directly or produce hydrogen by the electrolysis of water. The hydrogen can later be transformed back into electricity by fuel cells. Using the characteristics of the system components as input parameters, the model simulates system performance over time using historical or computergenerated wind-speed and demand data. Various statistics associated with the energy produced and costs are used to evaluate and compare alternative systems. Dissert. Abstr.

The influence of psychopharmacological preparations (aminasine, haloperidole, phenamine) on the distribution of functional duties within a group is studied by evaluating stability of habits and tactics, verbal communicability and the level of conflict tension. the psychological cost of group and individual activity, as well as empathic perception of the partner. It is shown that intra-group personality interactions can be controlled using psychopharmacological preparations.

On the basis of comprehensive analyses of present and future production processes, a real time information system was developed for the operative control and design of the rapidly changing production processes in a production plant. The control measures in the operative control of the production processes are triggered by events in the production process. Data which are subject to random laws appropriate for the actual production process correspond to such events. An initial concept for the component system to be used (29 data-input and 29 data-output units, 3 control units with associated transfer lines. 1 central unit R 21 with direct access memory and operational system) and the application program system (10 programs for the control and guidance of the production process) is available. The central unit is used in the multiprogramming operating mode: the real time programs are run in hierarchical sequence within a clearly defined core memory range over other programs. Author (GRA)

The extent which supply support for Jet Propulsion Labora tory's Deep Space Network and Goddard Space Flight Center's Space Flight Tracking and Data Network should be consolidated is considered along with the identification of opportunities for improvements in each of the supply systems without regard to consolidation. There is a considerable amount of commonality between the items in the stock catalogs at the two network depots. 58% for federal stock number items and 30% overall. The workload at the DSIF Supply Depot (DSD) is small (less than 20%) compared to the Network Logistics Depot (NLD). A number of important benefits in supply support would result from a consolidation of DSD into NLD. LMI found that a consolidation as is, without any changes in inventory management techniques, would reduce annual operating costs by from $208,000 to $358,000. However, if the consolidation were coupled with a change to use of economic order quantities, the annual operating cost reduction would range from $930,000 to $1.078.000.
