Earth Believed 4i Billion Years Old By ROBERT GOLDENStEIN CHICAGO Wi — Four "sc ent- ists using an atomic yardstick lo measure time have pushed 'the origin of th« earth back to at least ^'2 billion years ago. This is the oldest date yet obtained by analyzing elements in tho solar system. However, there is evidence that for some two billion years of its existence, the earth's surface was no', solid as it is today, but was molten or .In som-' other diffuse nonsolid state. The studies were based on two . ?lightly different kinds of lead found in meteorites' — the small bodies which scientists say \verc formed in the same nuclctir upheaval that produced the earth. T'.ie lead once was uranium, a substance that loses its radio-act ivity at a ki.own rate in a Jeesying process. However, there are at least two kinds :of isotopes in naturol ru'anium, differing slightly i-i .weight. The different rate at which the two kinds of isotopes lose thdir radioactivity i sthc key to the age determining technique. The heaviest isotope, 1 uranium 238, loses hat: its rad o activity in 4V> billion years, decaying into lead 206. Another uranium isotope, U-235 — the kind used in the A-bomb- loses half its radioactivity in 710 million years and decayes into lead 207. Cotton Men Study Means i . : of Production ATLANTA Ml— How to produce and market cotton more cheaply occupied the top spot on the agen da of the National Cotton Council convention opening. here today. Harold A. Young of North Little Rock, Ark., council president, said yesterday the industry must con tinue its efforts to give cotton! greater strength .in competing for markets by lowering production, costs while turning out a superior product. Young predicted an increase in cotton exports for 1954 and clamed foreign competition for last year's drop. On the subject .of efficiency, Cecil H. Collnrette of Arizona hailed his state's aveage yield of 1 bales per caro, compared with a national average of slightly more than half a bale. The Arizonian said the South apparently still has too many small farms to keep pace with the West in farm mechaniza tion. Approximately 1,000 delegates from 18 cotton-producing states are expected to attend the two-day convention. President Young, who will be come chairman of the council's Board of Directors when a new president is elected tomorrow, said in an interview that cotton consumption has increased each year since the council was formed J6 years figo despite the loss of some markets to synthetics.

' Front the front, Ling Yuan wai; shuttled southward to the southeast oort of Pusian Late in 1.951, he was transferred to the smouldering prison i.sland of Koje Inside the barbed wire compounds, he found.... the civil war between Nationalists and Communists still raged He did not talk about those days, when the two factions fought for control and blood ran in the compounds But he said he was one of the internal guards appointed by the anti-Red prisoners themselves In April 1952, th« Allies began ;heir screening to see who wanted .o go back to Red China in event of an armistice They asked Ling Yuan if he wanted, to go back "Tho very thought made my blood curdle," he said "All I could do was say over and over again. "Even if you kill me I will not return to Communist China" And so he was moved from Koje to Choir. Island wilh other non- 'ommunist prisonerr. On Sept 18, he arrived at the South Camp in the neutral zone 'or the "come home" interviews 3rovidf;d by the armistice terms But his compound was one of those which i efused to listen to Red persuasion teams He j.aid 20 to 30 per cent of the Indian guards were pro-Communist end tried to talk the prisoners Into going home "They told us," he said, "that regavdless of whether we were questioned or not we would be sent back to Communist China" After the period for explanations ended In December, Ling Yuan said the Indians screened his corn pound but not a single Chinese changer! his mine. On the tank landing ship bringing hirn to Formosa, he heard over the srn'p's public address system Jan 23 that all prisoners had re- vented 'to civilian status by order tjbte U N Command Likes New York Because Its the Only City in the World That's Open 24-Hours a Day .._ _/, because everything else In my life is so impermanent. If you Me really dedicated to an art, thp art becomes your only teality in the world." When I asked Capote, still on the sunny side of 30, what he thought By HAL BOYLE NEW YORK '„«— A city to me," said Truman Capote, forking thoughtfully at a starwberry tart, "is a flace where you can get up at 3 o'clock in the morning and buy a book or a shirt. "In a real sense of being a city, New York Is the only city in the world. It is the only one open 24 hours a day." Capote, recently returned from Rome, has somewhat outgrown his "child wonder of the literary world" status of a few years ago. Critics whether then ho wore divided over sterling precocious or startingly precious — whether he was a pale young genius or merely pule. "I'm 28 now," he remarked at luncheon in the 21 Club, "and I've wrilen four borks and a play. I with Marilyn Monroe, it Would be a disaster. But they have turned out somo great picture? that way.'* Capotfc, who has had some luck in a life of hard work, has never seen a television program. "D-j you think I thould take up looking at televison" he asked. "I have ho opinions against it. I simply don't own a television set, and nobody I know over looks at M.

Now I'm work- Thls mc iiowing enfant terrible rf ing on my third novel and doing the lyrics for a muirical play, based in Haiti, called 'House of Flowers.' It's light and strange." Capote, who talks with the artistic surety of Oscai Wilde, is blond, blue-eyed and small enough to walk under th-> arms of a high school baskctbal' center. He looks less like a sophisticated fawn today anil more like a retired choir boy—or a rising young literary critic. "I don't think writing for the films has anything to do with writing," he observed. "In writing for the films, the only important thing is the visual sense—the eyo is everything." But he did enjoy doing the dia- laguo for "Indiscretions of an American Wife," produced by Rome for Columbia Pictures by Vittorio de Sica. "In Daly they don't rely so much r-n a script," ho said. "They like to make things up as they go along. The film' was host in the Rome rt-ilroad terminal, and whenever they needed dialogue for the next scene'I would"go into another room of the station and write it.
