Titanium is an extremely strong, light metal urgently reeded in the production of modern jet aircraft. Sen. Alan Bible announced this week that the program for improved processing of titanium sponge metal will begin under an agreement between the federal government and the Wah Chang corporation of New York. REACTIVATE PLANT The Boulder City pilot plant of the Wah Chang corporation, a world leader in the tungsten in- Tax Commission Rescinds Rule A tax commission regulation barring applications for gambling licenses until an establishment is at least one-third built was re sanded Friday. The rule was adopted more than a year ago to prevent so- called license peddling, but as members of the commission remarked, "it obviously has not accomplished that purpose." Prior to adoption of the rule licenses were issued for several ensinos before the ground was broken. Armed with a license, the project sponsors then proceeded to interest investors in the proposition. One hotel promoter, Tbny Cor-nero Stralla, who is in back of the Stardust project in Las Vegas, has done a large selling job, even without, a license. He has listed more than 1000 stockholders in his enterprise and his application is still pending. A new rule, aimed at halting stock promotions limiting the number of applicants on a single license to 50 already has been fdopted, and the commission is expected to take further steps to solve the" problem at its next meeting. Early experiments in making high quality-titanium sponge were conducted by the Wah Chang corporation at Glen Cove, N. Y, The agreement with the federal government will allow pilot plant tests at Boulder City to begin immediately, with the ma. jor expense to be borne by the corporation. Wah Chang technical repre sentatives will be detailed to work with Bureau of Mines engineers nd metallurgists. PUBLISH RESULTS As work progresses, Senator Bible said, the Bureau of Mines is expected to publish results of the important tests. Any im proved processes aresto be made available to private industry. Titanium is the newest "wonder metal" used in jet airplane engine manufacture. The light, strong, heat-resistant metal was the subject of previous laboratory experiments at the Boulder City plant leading to establishment of the titanium metal industry. The Wah Chang corporation is is headed by K C. Li of New York City and operates the Tempiute tungsten mine in Lincoln county. Another Wah Chang owned tungsten property is located near Bishop, Calif. Titanium processing is a completely new field. Just a few years ago the national annual output of refined titanium was measured in pounds. County Carson Vote Called Valid Two Pedestrians Struck bv Cars Two pedestrians took a short count Thursday and Friday wften they were struck down by motorists. Police said Catherine B. Oh-lrndorf, 72, 29 W. Second St., was struck by a car driven by George R. Logreco, 39, 1233 Ralston St. The accident occurred at Plaza and Virginia streets.

It is a presumption that Monday's election was valid and a presumption that the elect ed person is qualified to serve, city attorney Cameron Batjer stated this morning. Batjer's statement came as the result of rumors which have been circulating that Briscoe C. Honea elected to represent the second ward in Monday's election might not be qualified to serve on the city board. The two presumptions would have to be overcome by a legal action brought bv a citizen or group of citizens before Honea's qualifications to" represent' the second ward are challenged, Bat jer said. He said further that it was his belief that the city board cannot refuse to seat Honea unless some legal action is brought to bear wmeh would probably mean a court action. The question of Honea's qualifi cations to be elected a trustee came when some of the residents of ward two said that he might not have owned property in the ward at the time of" the election. Under the city charter it is a requirement that a candidate own property and reside in the ward from which he seeks election. YERINGTON. Yerington bus inessmen are pooling their money through purchases of stock in the Yerington uranium and drilling corporation for the purpose ' of diamond drilling , the uranium claims of C. B. and K. F. Hanson, 12 miles northeast of Yerington. This oroDertv is one of three properties out of many investigat ed by the A.E.C. and is recom mended as a potential prospect for commercial uranium. There have been several offers made by mining promoters to secure an option on the property but the locators have hoped to make it a community proposition. The incorporation of the prop erty was completed last week in Carson City with C. B. Hanson, president; Anton Lilja, vice presi dent; Jack Carpenter, secretary-treasurer and Carl Gelmstedt, auditor. It is expected that a drill will be on the ground within the next three weeks and that drilling will start by June 5. Since the AEC has displayed an interest in the prospecting, the work will be car ried on under the supervision ot one of its geologists. The most likely spot in which to drill to contact the pitchblend de posit below the surface workings has been selected and each foot ot the core drilling will be analyzed by the AEC geologist to perfect the geology and determine where the second hole will be placed. Five thousand dollars has al ready been spent on the property by the Hanson brothers since it was discovered lasi juiy. me DroDertv comprises ten claims covering 200 acres. Sample: analyzed by the owners have run from 0.13 to 2 per cent and sam pies taken by the AEC men hav run as high as 0.714. The claims are surrounded by- locations of other prospectors who located after the Hanson strike became known and ground has been taken up for a distance of 25 miles to the south. Although tentacles found in a whale's stomach indicate that octopuses can be 110 feet across with tentacles extended, the larg est on record caught by man was 20 feet across and weighed 110 pounds. Burglary Suspect Taken in Arizona LAS VEGAS A 16-year-old Las Vegas youth was arrested in St. John's Ariz., yesterday and will be returned here for ques tioning in the burglary of the new Market Town supermarket, Sher iff W. E. Leypoldt said today. The boy had been employed by the market as a stock clerk at the time of the burglary and when ar rested was driving a new sports car and had a considerable amount of cash in small change. according to the report. Arizona officers picked up the youngster for speeding and carry ing a gun and upon investigation he was linked to the Las Vegas crime.

LP) A southern and a western senator this week will propose a bill to authorize federal refinancing of federal disaster loans to farmers. Sens. Scott (D-NC) and Allott (D-Colo) plan to introduce legislation which would direct the secretary of agriculture to grant direct loans for refinancing loans made in counties hit by such natural catastrophies as hurricanes and prolonged drought. Scott told reporters today quick action is needed to prevent farmers from going into bank ruptcy this year in areas in the west that have suffered drought for five successive years and in areas in the south which have had three years of drought plus hur ricane Hazel. The department of agriculture' now makes six different types of loans to farmers in disaster areas but no provision has been made for refinancing, Scott said. The legislation to be proposed would limit the interest rate for refinancing to three per cent. "If the farmers can find a way to extend their debt, they should Check Charges Are Dismissed Charges of forgery and fraudu lent checks held against two Reno women have been dropped, police said today. The charges were preferred by Santa Cruz, Calif., authorities against Rhoma Hessey and by Pasadena, Calif., police against Vivian Richards. Authorities in both cases said restitution had been made.
