BtYTHBVILLB (ARK.)' COtmtER HEWS MONDAT, OCTOBER M, 19W Co/c( Tap Wafer /s Good For Bums, Doctors Say By ALTON L. BI,AKESLEE Associated 1'ri'ss Science Kcporler CHICAGO (AP) — Quick use of cold water looks good to reduce pain and danger from bad burns, a team of surgeons reported today.

It uses an electronic "brain" to turn a blueprint into a complex finished product. The product is an intricate cam, the heart of a jet engine's fuel control system. The machine accomplishes in two to four hours a technical operation that previously required about 400 man-hours or five to 10 weeks. It was developed by Bendix Aviation Corp. engineers and recently unveiled at the Terre Haute, Ind., plant. Coded information, taken from the blueprint is punched on a plastic tape and the electronic "brain" then "reads" the data, and sends instructions to the tool that does the actual cutting of the cam. Above, a Bendix technician looks at the punched tape on the "cam machine."
