Army Develops Face Masks for Soldiers WASHINGTON (UP>—The Army has developed a new atomic age face mask to protect soldiers against inhaling radioactive fallout particles. The lightweight mask, now undergoing final tests, is designed to jjive complete protection against I war gase.s, germ warfare agents and fail-out particles. But it will not protect the wearer against direct radiation. The mask was developed by the Army Chemical Corps and the John T. Ryan Memorial Laboratory of the Mine Safety Appliances Co. of Piltsburgh. Instead of having the standard protruding <:annister used in current gas masks, the new device has pliable gas-aerosol filters molded into the rubber facepicce. The Army said the ma.sk provides easier breathing, better vision, improved speech transmission and greater comfort.

It operated without a hitch. Starting this year in May, which tract, which he had planted in corn, he planted this year in soy beans. One prime advantage of the chisel me'jhod is the elimination of soil up and buries the stalks .in the seed bed, thus enabling t!he new crop to be fed, so to speak, by the old crop'. Federer said .Tie could see quite a difference in the.fields planted by the new method. The difference was observed when walking on both of them.
