AUSTIN (Minn.) HERALD 4 f Thursday, Jon. 15, '59 13 EYEFUL, NOT EIFEI— Piercing the sky over Tokyo is this newly completed TV tower. It. is 1,092 feet in height, making it 100 feet taller than the Eiffel Tower which it resembles. It serves four stations. The observatory level is 377 feet up. Strong Element Is Produced by Scientists WASHINGTON (AP) - Government scientists have produced the first casting of molybdenum, a metallic element which has excellent strength at high temperatures, Th» Interior Department de- «ribed this at a major metallurgical breakthrough of importance to space and missile programs. Simple Casting Marling J. Ankeny, director of the Bureau of Mines, said scientists at the agency's Albany, Ore., laboratory had produced a simple cylindrical molybdenum casting. He said the metallurgists now are trying to improve techniques so intricate shapes can be created by the process. He said such intricate Items would advance the development of missiles, rockets and satellites, giving the misilo engineer greater flexibility of design and a cheaper way to construct vital components. The strength which molybdenum ' has at high temperatures is needed for certain applications in missile parts. The metal increases the hardness and strength of steel. Destroyed Crucibles But its high melting point — 4,748 degrees Fahrenheit — destroyed the crucibles used in earlier attempts to cast it. By comparison, pure iron melts at 2,795 degrees. Her» Is how th» casting was made: Under remote-control conditions, a high-density electric arc was used to melt a 30-pound charge of molybdenum in a water-cooled copper-lined melting pot. Series of Troughs The intensely hot material was poured through a series of troughs into a rotating graphite cylinder that forced the metal to the walls of the rotating mold. There the metal consolidated, froze and produced a hollow molybdenum cyl inder 4V4 inches wide and 8 inchei long. The United States haa about 90 per cent of tho world's known molybdenum reserves, moat of 1' In Colorado, Utah, Arizona, Cali fornia, New Mexico and Nevada Grimes Recovering From Operation • DES MOINES tB— Burleigh Grimes, 65, one-time pitching ace in the National League, was re ported recovering Wednesday from a hernia operation at Iowa Methodist Hospital. Grimes has been living on hi farm in Missouri since he retiree recently. He managed the Brook lyn Dodgers in 1937-38. Later hi scouted for several major league flubs. Grimes' wife is the former Ine Martin of Des Moines. In the United States, not counting Alaska and the territories, there are C22 million acres of forestland, about one- third of all tho land area of the country. Of this total, 162 million acres are classed as "noncommercial." This includes alpine, scmidesert and other areas not suited for commercial growth of timber, (parks and other public areas. ^ gaeyoloptdt* Britannic* STORE HOURS-OPEN DAILY 9 a.m. to 9 p.m.-SUNDAY 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. . i ™ W« fteserva fftt fttSht to Umlf Quantifies NATIONAL'S 3-STAR * * *CORN-FED BEEF!
