; ' 11 '" SAYS "ATOM AGE" TO BRING WONDERS 1N3T04YEARS We will be living in an "atom age", within three or four years, Prof. Walter Harvey told Rotarians a week ago Monday noon, and gave enough information on the subject of atoms to make it seem quite likely. Mr. Harvey is science and physics instructor at the Britl high school, and was guest speaker of 'the local club. Nazis Nearly Had It From material.he has read and study he has made of reports on atom research, Prof. Harvey was able to give the following definite information on the atom: 1—In 1939 only a strip of tin foil prevented a German-Jewess scientist from solving the atomic energy riddle. 2—At present only one-tenth of one percent of total atomic energy has been isolated. 3—An automobile is now operating in England, using atomic energy, which requires a power unit about the size of a baseball. 4—One hundred and thirty planes, each carrying one of the present-sized atomic bombs would create bomb damage in Europe equal to all of the regular bomb destruction of the past war. , 5—Steamships, trains and home heating may all be operated from atomic power plants ranging in size from that of a small wafer .to a baseball. Open Forum Session In an open forum session that followed Mr. Harvey's talk, club members asked a host of questions. One question .brought some information as to the pooling of scientific knowledge that brought about the eventual result. The combination of a German-Jewess and an Italian scientist produced the first clue along the right path, Mr. Harvey said. He added thsl scientists working with atomic energy had to be protected by cither parrafirY'siiits or lead covered garments, which may therefore become stanrl.irri apparel some day. Ralph Miller, program chairman, introduced Mr. HarVoy. Titonka Man Is Groom On Dec. 18 Elton Huisman, Titonka, and Harmina Gelder, Wellsburg, la. were married Dec. 18 by Rev.
