armies. "Space support basically allowed U.S. forces to perform that famous 'lefthook' operation (during the Persian Gulf War.) The Iraqis assumed no one couldnavigate that well in the desert.The Scripps Howard manpower study found that the huge Department of Energyresearch facilities: Oak Ridge National Laboratory in Tennessee, Argonne NationalLaboratory near Chicago, Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory in northernCalifornia and New Mexico's Los Alamos - have survived despite White Housedownsizing policies.These facilities were privatized decades ago and are operation centers for commercialresearch contractors. Even so, Department of Energy employees who remain tomonitor the work performed at the labs have suffered only modest declines, droppingfrom 1,961 federal workers in 1992 to 1,615 employees last year. The overallemployment at these laboratories is much, much larger. Only 77 workers at LosAlamos, N.M., are directly employed by the Department of Energy. But the vast labfacility managed by the University of California employs about 10,000 non-government works.The overall contract work at these facilities grew as the labs conducted increasinglydiverse research into basic physics with applications for industry and other non-defense government agencies. But their original mission of designing nuclearwarheads, apparently, also has not suffered despite international agreements like theComprehensive Test Ban Treaty.The arms race with Russia is, officially, over. But the construction, assembly anddevelopment facilities that built the warheads and test the delivery systems continuewith slightly reduced staffs. Total employment declined by 8 percent at the SavannahRiver Site in South Carolina, which produces bomb-grade uranium; the Pantex Plantin Texas, which assembles warheads; the Redstone Arsenal complex in Alabama,which produced Cold War missile systems and continues to design weapons for theU.S. Army; and the several secured facilities scattered across the Nellis Air ForceBombing range in southern Nevada, home of the Nevada Test Site. These four groupsof facilities employed 14,182 civilian workers in 1992 and 13,045 as of last year.The Scripps Howard study is based upon civilian payroll records maintained by theU.S. Office of Personnel Management and obtained by the Transactional RecordsAccess Clearinghouse at Syracuse University. The records provide information about
2.2 million federal employees as of Sept. 30, 1992 and for the 1.8 million employedon the same date last year.NORTH WALESDuring the summer of 1998, cave explorers using scientific equipment were able toconfirm that a linked cave system some 15 miles in length exists underground inNorth Wales. Several years ago a researcher by the name of Frank D. Adams wrote onthe results of his personal scientific experiments which may prove that giant cavitiesexist in granite at depths of more than 11 miles, conclusions which have also beensupported by Louis V. King, a mathematician who calculated that, at normal
