Low-Cost Cleanser for A-Bomb Radioactive Dust, Described By WAI.I'ACIS WEEKS WOnCESTER, Mass., Dec. 13. Wj —A chemical to cleanse persons exposed to an A-bomb's radioactive dust at * cost of about a penny eacli was described Monday night by a Clark University scientist. In > paper read to a meeting of the Clark Scientific Society, Associate Prof. Arthur E. Martell snM: "This decontnmlnant. known commercially as 'versene,' does not destroy radioactivity but conce'rts radioactive metals to a form which can he easily rinsed away with wa ter." This, he added, Is a vast Improvement over earlier methods which consisted of washing contaminated surfaces with strong corrosive solutions. Dr. Martell said that the chemical, scientifically know as a com- ple-xlng agent, would be of no use in treating burns from atomic radiation. Its principal use would be at decontamination centers following a blast, when whole communities could be bathed in the chemical, which would be combined with a cleansing agent for easier use. It also could be used on equipment. The main characteristics of the chemical are (1) it combines very strongly with metals and <2) It is highly water soluble. Radioactive dusts of atomic blasts Is composed mainly of metals. The chemical would grip them and then wash off easily with water. After a person went through the chemical hath he would take a water shower and be rechecked for radioactivity with a gelger counter. It Is manufactured by the Bersworth Chemical Company of Farm- ingham. German Guards Ready BEftLlN, Dec. : 13. (Pi— U.
