The greatest non-military benefit has been mass production of about 100 different radioactive elements with which science hopes to aolve the secrets of many mechanical and living-processes. The com- mislon has abld more than $100,000 worth of these j-adipl-Jtbpes to researchers.

New basic knowledge of the nucteua has been achieved.,Among new tools for nuclear studies Is a fast plutonium reactor at the Los Alamos bomb plant. It will give re searchers a rich source of neutrons, the 'negative atoms" which 'are used as triggers In atomic reactions and . as tools for nuclear study.

No Short Cut to F»ra4SM But there are many reasons why scientists do not expeqt atomic energy to turn the earth Into a para Ise right away. For one thing, the ipply of uranium and other fis- onable materials Is not enexhaustl- e. Known deposit* rich enough to xploit economically are relatlvel; ew and scattered. For another, nuclear fission, the ily atomic process now available man, is not very efficient. An onservatlvfl scientists see no chanc f developing any other method c tipping nuclear power supplies. In ny case, electric power from atoml nergy U bound to be more costl years lo come than power'from oal, oil, or water power. It Is impossible, as Llllenthal sal nsL week, to state certainly that th atomic' age will b« an unmljc« blessing. But It can, at least, be reported that scientists see no possibility that man's nuclear fiddling will turn his planet Into a star. , If there were any danger of that-, ,hey say, it would have happened already.
