Sidney Farber of the Children's Cancer Research Foundation said that five experimental compounds originally produced with the idea of combatting .ma* laria have yielded temporary benefits when given to sonic people suffering from "a«ulc leukemia arid scattered other tumors." Leukemia is a cancer of the blood. Farber said that whilo th-j benefits derived from the drugs were of short duration, they were sufficiently strong to warrant further investigation of compounds of this general type. this morning's papers with great attention J assure you t rend of thc large, fang-like teeth Jie two killers u^ed as, a disguise. •I— thought tho person calling had something such as that in his mouth It r-i—frightened me still more, lean" t tell you why, but it t .horrible.- AS If well as if something was jnissing something normal human voice should lave,"' "You didn't try to trace the call" 'Of coure not." kt - *" $£''.

"We'd better get on our way, Jim, Prpbably there won't be anything It's almost 10. B,ut we'll go New England Wonts Atomic Plant Also j BOSTON W—An atomic power j plant is planned for Pittsburgh. New England wants one loo. It intends to get one. But it wants Us money's worth. New-England could use the expensive new gadget sooner than some other areas, because power costs here are higher than the national average. But many a hardheaded Yankee says he's willing for Pittsburgh to have the first one, as announced last week: He wants someone else to work the buss out of it. learn how to make it nrocluce economically—and pay the bills; * That may take years. In Cambridge, some industrial scientists have different ideas. They have worked closely with the government on the A-bomb, bnve helped harness atomic energy and by-products to industrial use. .They claim that they could raise Iho money in New England (whera Yankees already have seen the atom spawn peacetime industrial progeny) 1o build an experimental atomic energy plant. It might not be the type they believe the Atomic Energy Commission has in mind in negotiations revealed last week with the Duquesne Light Co. for the construction and operation of the nation's first full-scale central station nuclear power plant at Pittsburgh. Because- of security bans, the Cambridge industrial s c i cnlisls can't discuss the type they think they could work more economically. The six New England governors, meanwhile, are jointly naming a 10-man committee this week to study the problems,of biinging a nuclo-u plant here, in time. The AEC says it plans to set up four other experimental plants Those early ones, almost everyone seems to agree, may be top costly to be sold to stockholders for private companies. They may have to be p.iid for by taxpayers, through government spending, for some time. William Webste, executive vico president of the New England Electric System is chairman of the New England Council's atomic energy committee. The .council is out to get an atomic power plrnt and anything else it thinks w'll help build New England's industrial future. Webster says that atomic elec'- trie power plants arc coming for sure. But he aces far off thi day when they'll be cheap enough to compete with plants powered by fuels presently in use. He says: "The first ones will 'brood' bettor and cheaper ones. Only when they do will we be really excited about it." Webster says the region's plans for further industrial expansion will call for more sources, of en- cgy. And its high power costs— largely because coal and other fuels to heat steam boilers, must be transported from outside — will make atomic power competitive here before it would b(? in some other areas. ' Other sections may give New England a run for its money. In some remote areas power costs are still higher, and soiTie of them want power. • The increasing need lor energy is a national—not a strictly regional long-term factor, the Cambridge scientists point out. The military mind also is -.irii- trigued. The armed forces are talking of building atomic' p.ower plants at distant posts—such as Greenland or the Sahara. Power is costly there. And coal or 'oil for fuel could be cut off if it had to be transported in submarine' infested waters.
