These are three of a group of 14 metals— called "rare earths" — I which occur in nature In association with various minerals. Hilher- 1 t" little has been known about them. They are difficult to extract from I ores containing them, and their I atomic structure makes It difficult to separate one from another. But Atomic Eenergy Commission scientists, employing delicate chemical separation methods developed I for A-bomb work, have now succeed- I ed in producing "limited amounts lot rare earths of a purity and I quantity previously unnttnlned." I They believe these metals may have bright commercial future "as I alloy metals tn the manufacture of I high-temiMM-atiire structural maler- | ials and other specialized products.' We've been using one of the mos' I common of the rare earths in every- I day life for some time. This 1: I cerium. It is used to make a "mis al"— from whicll sparkins of cigaret lighters, miners (lamps and welding torches I made. Pure cerium also Is used lo (certain types of radio lubes a [non-iron alloys. But scientists hope that othe I metals in the rare earth series ina I find practical use as soon as suffi Icient quantities are produced. S< I keep your eye on praeseodymium 1 samarium, gadolinium, ytterbium | and yttrium. Your kids may have to learn t< I spell them! COfYIICMT IT HUGH LAW It w si mime n w* stivKf.

Anv- ivay I'm glad the two men got set- led in that shed near the barn. And say, Bea, did you notice how grumpy Fred SiLlwell is?" "How could anyone miss it?" "He's not used to doing without iquor. That's all ails him." "It might be one thing ails him," Bea corrected. "He's not always like that. He c-an be gay and jolly as. the next one. But he needs whiskey." "You knew him in Los Angeles?" "I knew of him," Lilly admitted "Harding would miss it eventually. Besides I don't even know where it's stored-" "1 do," IJlly »aid. "And you could take a bottle or 30 out of a bottom ease. It wouldn't be missed lor a long time so nobody'd know you look it," "So that's whirt you and Nona McGuire were talking about this morning?" "You don't miss much," Lilly drum bled.

"AH right. Whal are you lead ing up lo?" "I'm just trying to figure out a way to make things more pleas ant. Maybe it won't be long be fore Hemy gets the radio fixed, bu I don j t sec why things shouldrT be as pleasant as possible mean while. And you're in charge supplies this week." "I get it.

Ben Cosgrove was nol positive it was an improvement. *"PHE third morning after the •*- wreck uf the Gullwing, Bea and George Bascombe walked along the trail lo Fisherman's Beach. George stumbled over a rock. "As il wasn't bad enough, being stuck ori this dirlpile with a hunch of freaks, but to lose all my glasses!" "Thanks," Bea said. "Present company always ex- eluded/' he grumbled. "But when you think of the six spare pair of spectacles I had, you'd think I might have put one spare in my pocket!" "You're lucky to be alive," she pointed out. George Bascombe snorted. "Just after I got out of the water, felt the solid beach sand, I'd have agreed with you. Now I'm fed, ever considered the life of a pura- sile?" "Are you miking about your past or present lite?" IJea asked. "Now be careful. We're coming to the steep part of the trail." "The steep part! My toes ;ue already pushed through Ihc front end of these borrowed shoes. Lei's stop here. The others salvaged all the loose wreckng« from the Gull- win« yesterday. AiuJ no glasses!" "Harding thought thut Hllle blow last night might have broken up your boat." "1 suppose that guy never makes mistakes?" Bnscombe asked. "Yes," Bea Cos^rnve sni<t, "You put some feeling into that word. 1 ' * • • «\V^ATCH where you're golngl" Bea snapped. "Now, down this way—and there's the beach." A moment Inter she added, "And (or your edification, it is now covered with wreckage." "All right. You win! He wins! You're both wonderful and clever. Now if you'll just find a green case!" George Bascombc walked slowly up and down the bench, in ami out of the timbers and boxes, bent over so h is ey es we re within a few feet o( the ground, ' But Bea found a am nil green case, opened it, took out an unbroken pair of thick-lensed classes nnd handed them to him. "Try those on for size." He look llietn eagerly, slipped them on. He .snatched Ihem off, polished their lenses on the tail of his shirt and gave a great sigh of relief as (he nose piece ftl into the deep groove on the cartilage of hie nose. "My savior!" He kissed her. "I'm a new man!" Hea laughed- "The olri one was quieter," George stepped back a pace and stared at her. "My wonder girl'. And si beauty! You've uenmiful when you laugh.
