That vast territory has attracted so few settlers that many have feared that it'would be a push-over for any invader. Thus it is reassuring to see Alaska's population growing. Still pitifully small, it is now revealed as 71,911 as compared with 59,178 ten years ago. That is growth at the rate of 21.1 per cent, a rate exceeded during the same period only by Florida and New Mexico. The military population is now growing still faster, of course, and that always draws a certain amount of civilian population to supply the army posts, so still greater growth is definitely Jn sight.

Injection into ' the system o' chemicals and other substances that have been made radioactive by the cyclotron and which permit their being traced, through out their course in the body, their final .point of absorption and the checking of effects they produce. In addition, the cyclotron has permitted the discovery of a heretofore unknown element, which is now designated as Element No. 85 and which has already shown marked .therapeutic possibilities. - All experiments to date have success with the new therapy has been in the treatment of cancer and tumors. .

The next greatest success of.the cyclotron therapy has been in the treatment of leukemia with fruit juice cocktails in which the "kick" consists of radioactive phosphorous which the cyclotron creates. Leukemia is a -blood disease that heretofore has been regarded as incurable. The experiments have demonstrated that the new treatment has retarded the disease and Use of radio-activated salt maGe by the cyclotron has established the manner in which the salt corrects, and makes normal the rate of excretion of sodium and potassium in animals .which is changed when the adrenals are removed.
