Sun Day sparks solar support

(Continued from Page 1)
To replace it, Ralls proposed a five-
member Michigan Energy Commission
with a tougher approach toward gran-
ting rate increases to utilities and
authority to operate in all other energy
fields.
THE HOUSE Taxation Committee
joined the observance by approving
unanimously legislation providing tax
credits for installation of solar energy
devices.
House Speaker Bobby Crim, (D-
Davison) told the committee that
Michigan, an energy-poor state, could
reduce its dependence on outside
energy supplies and create jobs by en-
couraging solar technology.
In Detroit, sunshine glinted off the
guitar of singer John Denver and war-
med a crowd of 2,000 Sun Day celebran-
ts who reveled through their lunch hour
yesterday in downtown Kennedy
Square.
YOUNG PEOPLE blew soap bubbles
and balloons, an elderly man danced a
jig and others stood or sprawled in the
sun as Denver sang his hit song, "Sun-
shine On My Shoulder."

Self-styled environmentalist, actor
Eddie Albert and a host of state and
local government officials and labor
leaders took turns praising the sun as
the energy source of the future.
Although the sun barely took the chill
out of the breezy, 60-degree day, the
crowd seized the opportunity to spend a
leisurely lunch hour in the sunshine.
THEY HEARD Denver warn, "We
are on the verge of destroying our-
selves," unless the nation becomes
more protective of its natural resources
and turns to cleaner, cheaper power
sources such as the sun.
"It's not demanding more of us in
regard to money," Denver said. "It
simply demands a redirection of our
thinking, of our inspiration, of our
technology, of our leadership and of our
capabilities as people and workers of
the world.
Albert said the observance was more
than a celebration of the sun.
"It has to do with jobs and inflation,"
Albert said. "Energy costs are driving
up inflation. And the reason energy
prices are going up is because we are
using non-renewable resources."
