This young woman, aiding another scientist, has succeeded In discovering two now chemical laments as rare as radium which tha great French woman Mme. Curie found. Love for her science kfept her from marrying until she had put through her great discovery. Something of her task Is revtr.ilcd In an exclusive Unite-i Press Interview with correspondent Frederick Kuh, Br!ln. ': By FREDERICK KUK (Copyright 1925 by United Press.) BKRLI.V, June 22.--In an exclusive Interview with the United Press today, Freaeulein Ida Tacke, who with Dr. Wflalter Neddack. baa just discovered two new chemical ele ments masurium and rhenium modestly deprecated tha advancement which the German Academy of Science recognizes as a highly Important contribution to man's knowledge. In her early thirties, and of engaging personality. the German "Madame Curie" more scientist than Hausfrau exp)aincJ that she had postponed tnsfr-rlane until the discovery was accomplished, despite her fiance's Impatience. Both Fraeuleln Tackle and Dr. Nod-dack worked privately and financed their experiments from meagre pocket-books which are now exhausted, but the couple hope for support from scientific Institutions In Germany. She explained that their researches had hitherto been concentrated on ascertaining the existence of two un known elements masurium, named after the Masurian lakes where President Von Hlndenburg beat off . the Russians, and Rhenium, named after -tha Rhine-land from patriotic Moglves. ' "Dr. Noddack and I co-operated for two and a half yeara,' she said, "and made the discovery in 1923 by means of X-rays, but kept It a secret until we had confirmed it through analytical chemistry. It has been .necessary to examine tons of ore In order to e- j cure a microscopic quantity of ma-! eulum and rhenium." . -. Both elements, she said, belong to tha manganese series. Masurium lies somewhere between the elements molybdenum and ruthenium, awhile- rhenium lies between wolfram and osmium. " Both are as rare aa.TmdTumw . . "Throu4h decutlve theoriea.' she said, "we discovered tha elements In man-ganeae and platinum ores. 'Tons of manganese and pounds of platinum were needed to produce a minute speck of rhenium and masurium. The total quantity we succeeded in Isolating was not larger than r a pin point.

(Happy) Durr. J7 years old, who had worked for the duPonta since he was a lad Of 12. was the first employe to eucoumb. He was 111 only a short while and died in a strait Jacket on September 11, 1923, at ha! home in Pennsgrove. There was no story about It In big home paper, and none elsewhere; although the Pennsgrove Record displayed in a half -column account, on the first page the facts about Otto J. (Snapper) Barkdull, who was accidentally killed by electricity in the p-unt two days after Durr"s death. , Thomas C. Summerlll. editor of the Record, said he did not remember the circumstances. "I guess the reason we didn't print anything about Durr's death was because we couldn't get It," he explained. "They suppress things about the lead plant at Deep Water. Whatever we print we pick up from the workmen."' Durr's widow, who lives now with her mother at Woodstown, ten miles east of PeanegTove, told me that Barkdull had worked at the plant, only two months, whereas Durr had been employed by tbe duPonts.for twenty-five years. . At that time the duPonta were producing tetraethyl lead in what had been a dye works. In July, 19S4. there was a - death from poUoninar,. another in August, another In October. Work wa already under way on a r.v-tory brick structure, 85xH0 feet in slse, to be devoted to this purpose, and It, was to be opened January 1 of this year -; . Chemists Required Trestment . AH the men who 'died and who were en . the tetraethyl - force -i were classified la the death certlflcatee aa '"dye workers."- or Mdye operators, The reserra-Uon" known aa .-the' dye works' is. la fact, aside from the powder mills (where 15,000 men were employed at the peak during the war -' la the . productloa. of smokeless powder), a congeries of poison plants.. Phosgene and chlorine gases, as well as the toxlo benaol series, are manufactured -thee. - - . '; . In the old tetraethyl plant there was a series Of explosions and fires, which occurred froirt chemical reactions while the autoclaves, hag e mixing Tata, were being emptied or cieansed. From these there were no deaths, but there were many Injuries." D. Porch, snperin-tendent of tbe Jilsunt, waa himself badly burned, ajvd some of "the chemists required - medical treatment, -' Arrangements were made with, the Salem Memorial i JlospUal, to whfchi the duPoatg give i annual, contributions to ' tare for patients frorry Deep: Water, and ; such cases have been ita chief source of revenue. An executive of "the dye works la on' the hospital's board of manarers. All the mn who dld In 1924. and one In 1925, were under treatment at 'this hospital. They were ?rard to manage on account of their violence, and the duPonta, la addition to paring aU med'al expenses and r-nivML'T for the families, sent male nurses to attend and restrain the patients.. "' ' ' ', " - Victim escapes to C'.-t ef t- A l-'A rrt that Joseph Ciancl, the victim in July, a man of great strength, had actually by his Insane violence overturned the bed to which he was strapped; but Miss Hanna B. Harris, superiutenoent, denied this. "I've seen him actually lift the bed three or four Inches off the floor by his struggles," she said, "but I'm sure he was never as bad a-that." Miss Harris did not admit at first that Frank Hanley's death in August was due to tetraethyl poisoning. "He had an ulcer of the stomach and underwent an operation," she explained. But when she was told that the death certificate specified "acute intoxication lead tetraethyl" she was silent, but later admitted it. As a fact the man escaped some time after the operation from the hospital to the street and was caught Uhere. At duPont headquarters it was admitted that thfs was a case of pois oning. Sim Jones, negro Janitor at "The House of the Butterflies," wore old shoes and absorbed the poison through his feet. It Is fatal if inhaled or taken through the skin in sufficient quantities. In all. Miss Harris said, forty-eight cases were treated at Salem. Sim Jones was tbe last to die there in 1824. Jones died on October SO, about the time the series ot deaths, in the Standard Oil plant at Bayway centered publics attention on the startling consequences of tetraethyl poisoning;. February Deaths There were no more fatalities until the following February, after work had! begun in the new plant, where ' special precautions had been taken. In that month three workers died. A change waa made In the process of manufacture. Prior to this the ethyl of the compound had been introduced In the form of ethyl bromide, but the bromide required for this ingredient is costly to manufacture and difficult to procure lot quantities sufficient for such commercial operations as the duPonta had In view. The chemists decided to try ethyl chlirld einstead. ' Chlorine, a greenish-yellow and extremely poisonous gas. can be manufactured In huge quantities. Frederick W. DeFiebre, a worker. SI years old, was the 'first to die, on February 21. from poisoning in the new plant. To the Salem Hospital Is an ambulance run of but twenty minutes, and Dr. Harry W. Ie, chief surgeon of the duPont staff at Deep Water, rushed the patient thither for treatment. Even before this death Robert P, Huntslnger, 35 years old, had become ill and had insisted on going to his home at Bridge ton, twenty miles away in Cutr berland county. He livedo there at ISO Orchard street. When, he became violently Insane Dr. E. C Lyon, who was treating him and who la the county phyitclan, took htm to the Brldgstoa Hospital, where it was found that the patient's condition was such he could ,aot be cared for. Then he waa taken to the 'Cumberland County Hospital for U. Insane, where six "men were required at times to, restrain him. He died there February' IS, two days later. Dr. Lee went from Deep Wate rto help Dr. Lyon attend the patient. A reporter for a Bridgeton newspaper asked the county physician whether he would ask for an Inquest. "No said Dr. Lyon, - "if was -not an accident. It was . an occupational disease, and there is no occasion to call In the ooro-ner. Last PaUIHie ' f The last fatalities , were of a millwright and his helper, who were poisoned while making xsome . repairs and died after -the plant was Closed in November. These were JarAS : Cornell, ho died at his home In Wilmington, and Loring M. Boody.'who died at Carney's Point, on the duPont, reservation, Boody. the helper, waj attended by Dr. Lee. of the duPont staff, and tha death was attributed in part' to nreireo poisoning-' ' Ttss dajr before , Boodys death ConaeU went home 111 snd died on iareh St. 'In regard to both these cases the dnPont publicity bureau gave out,'! Urns to the Wilmington dally pew pers which are owned by the duPonta. , Regarding the four deaths whksh have occurred this year, therefore, there has been scattering publicity-, The fas'; .ot Uuptsinger's; death at , Bridgeton iwas reported In the New Tork see apapers. Dut even before ..these deaths occurred there were persistent rumors of.trdu bis at-Deep Water.' and last Xor ,mber it was reported and printed that there had been nine deaths, attboWa at that tlnre there had beta .. hut tour. , i - Net Treated as News' J iC R. We at en, who la at the .head of the duPont publicity bereeua, said that the earlier deaths were not treated as news because,: nntn after the Bayway tragedy, there was no public interest In such occurrences. . ; "The complete list . of deaths from the Deep Water plant Js now in the hands of Dr. McBrlde," he added,' 'We hare fold the facts and HJa absurd to ay that the duFonts have suppressed rmythlrig or that they eubsld'.xe hospitals.

Tender leaves of the grapevine, roses and many of the fruit trees already hear the marks of the mandibles. Vegetation has had a serious enough time of it in getting through tbe Ions period -of droug-ht and this attack will make conditions much worse so that farmers are fearing their crops will be considerably lessened. During the arid period the encouraging information was given that it probably would result In greatly lessening the Insect horde, particularly -the beetles, since the ground was supposed to be baked so hard that the fully developed adult big would have difficulty in emerging from Its earthy bed, where It has re:oosed since the eggs were, laid last summer. But a little thing like that doesn't discourage the Jap beetle, not by any means. It has been perhaps a few days late, but It Is here In our midst just the sams. The Government experts have promised to release a myriad of parasite files, as they did last season. These are expected to prey on the beetles, but to date no. real offensive remedy has been found. It may be years before the deadly flies, which have a liking for tbe beetle In which to deposit their enrs, will make their warfare apparent. Various Inaectines are on the market, but the beetles appear to like the flavor of the poison. About the only truly effective method of combatting them, until nature again strikes a balance by way of the Imported Jap parasitic files. Is by retting busy and picking them off the infested trees, shrubberies and vines and during them in a bath of kerosene. It's a tedious Job, but about the only effective method of warfare Just now. They will remain our unwelcome guests until August, forever eating everything and anything green. NEW YORK MAN BUYS N. J. WATER COMPANY A. . W.
