I ' -SATURDAY, APRIL'1, 1950 BLYTHEVILLE (ARK.) COURIER NEWS New Businesses Sprout In Mississippi County NEW YORK, April 1. (Special to I the Courier News)—Figures just released by the U.S. Department of Commerce, based on social security tax reports, show that the number of businesses In operation In Mississippi County are on the Increase. A total of T50 commercial enterprises, small-, medium and large- are recorded. Of this number, 411 »te either owner-operated or have rnf^e employees or less. Those establishments with four to seven employed number 160 and the onr-s with eight to nineteen workers add up to 118. The remainder are larger companies. Data from T« Reports The data was gleaned from the tax reports submitted to the Federal SecL'rlty Agency for the first quarter of 1548 by employers In connection with the social security program. a gain from the 663 found to be In operation the previous year. Small business Is well established In the county, the figures Indicate. There are 68" firms, or 92 per cent of the tola), with less than twenty employees each. This is a somewhat greater concentration than Is found elsewhere In the country, where small business represents 91 per cent of the number of going enterprises. Employment Is Gainful Gainful employment Is provided by Mississippi County's commercial establishments to 5,703 people, more than in the previous year when t'» v local companies absorbed 5,157 workers. The figur? j represent only those engaged In non-public employment and subject to the social security tax program. Excluded, in audition to public employees, are domestics, railroad employees and The 150 local businesses represent most agricultural workers. Einstein Explains Hew Theory Of Gravitation to Scientists By Howard W. Blakeslee Associated Press Science Editor NEW YORK, April 1. (/p)—Professor Albert Einstein today ex- lams his new theory of gravitation to his fellow scientists in an article in the Scientific Anieri r can. He says he doesn't know whether it will work, but that he is expanding the mathematical laws of gravitation to include the mysterious forces which form atoms. In doing this he has stepped completely away from the thinking of his fellow scientists. He stands alone. 'Failed (o Discover Nature jtoc Is telling them they hnve £ted to discover the nature or laws of atomic energy, and then proposing a solution which is amazing. Gravitation' extends everywhere through the known universe. It is Is unbroken energy of some kind and Einstein calls it the field..Zn this gravitational field there is,solid matter, scattered . everywhere, I he form of atoms which" make the stars, planets and all that is upon them. Eeinstein proposes that the material particles of matter are nol really what they seem. They are places where for some unkownn reason gravitation is particular^ high in density. This explanation goes contrary to any now known mathematics Einstein'thinks he has found mathematics which will show this theory to be correct. Why Devise Theories "Why," he nsks, "Do we devise theories at all? Simply because we enjoy comprehending . . . there •gists n passion for comprehension PRt as there exists a passion to music.'That passion is rather common in children, but it gets los in most people later on."

Magazine Burns Copies, Melts Type for Article on H-Bomb Czechs Expel Second U. S. Correspondent PRAGUE, Czechoslovakia, April (AP) —Czechoslovakia's Com munis! led government yesterday ordere the expulsion of John R. Higgin. lone American representative in th country of the United Press. It was the second ouster of an American news agency correspondent in two days. Nathan Polo- wetzky, correspondent for the Associated Press, was ordered Wednesday to leave the country before April 8, - . Refusing to renew Biggins' accreditation, the Czech Foreign ministry accused him of a "constant tendency towards unobjective reporting." The same accusations had been made against Polowetzky. NEW YORK. April 1. (IP)— Scien-* ;tfic American said today it stopped ts presses, burned 3,000 copies already in print and . melted down :he type of a new article on the lydrogen bomb—all at the instigation of the Atomic Energy Commission. Then century-old magazine said the incident "raises the question whether the commission Is thus suppressing information which the American people need in order to form intelligent Judgements on this major problem.*" The article was by Dr. Hans Bethe, Cornell physicist and former theoretical physics chief at Los Alamos.. ' All but a small part of the original article ultimately was published in the current issue, the magazine said, adding it is clear that the AEC did not object to facts in the article but to Dr. Bethe's stating them. The commission has directed t\U persons now or formerly employed by , it to reaffirm from public discussion of H-bomb matters. • The Atomic Energy Act gives the commission wide powers to declare atomic information secret. The Scientific American said In a statement that all the technical portions of Bellies' article consisted of Information "that has been widely published and is well known to nuclear physicists the world over." Those parts deleted by the AEG, the magzzine said, "included some statements which had already been widely quoted in the press and statements which since have been made by Robert Bacher, former member of the commission, in a speech In the Los Angeles to*ii hall on March 27." Th published article said among other things that the flash Ivom sn H-bomb could kill people within a circle 40 miles wide. This compares with the 4,000 to 5,000-feet radius of the atom bomb. Bethe Is sometimes called the "father" of the H-bomb. It was he who discovered how the sun makes hydrogen. British Announce Funds for Atom LONDON, April 1. WV-Britain's atomic energy program will cost $111,760,000 during the 12-month period starting tomorrow. That's $13,075,091 more than the development program cost In the preceding year. The estimated expenditures , became known today with the release of allocations for the ministry of supply which runs the atomic dcv-' elopment program here. Robbers Take $10,000 From Rapp Market ST.

(AP)—Bacteria usually die when put for very long in prc.ssure zones much different from their own. says Dr. Claude E. ZoBell of the Scripps Institution of Oceanography. He put 83 species of bacteria under pressure up to 9,000 pounds per square inch. None were Injured by a few minutes of such pressures. Nor were they hurt by sudden release of the pressure. But, alter a few hours or days most of them died. On the other hand bacteria taken from the deep sea where pressure is high lived and multiplied under such pressures. Hamilton was First "Philadelphia Lawyer" PHILADELPir \— Ml—The term "Philadelphia lawyer" generally Implies shrewdness arid sharpness of Quaker City attorneys. But Arthur Littleton, chancellor of the Phlla- dclnhla Bar Association, says few people know the term's exact origin. He says It goes to pre-revolutionary war days In 1135 when Alexander Hamilton, a Philadelphia lawyer, successfully defended John Peter Zenger of libel charges In New York City. 7-enRer was a poor printer who published the New York Weekly Journal. He wrote exposes of New York's graft-ridden administration and incited the ire of the governor. Most New York attorneys, fearing disbarment, refused to defend Zenger. So Hamilton—America's first secretary of the treasury—was hired to defend the printer. "Without a shred of law with him," Littleton says, "Hamilton carried on one of the most magnificent defenses ever conducted before a Jury." And In earning acquittal for Zengcr. Hamilton earned nn enduring tribute to the sagacity of the Philadelphia lawyer.
