Johnson, retiring, executive director of the Southern Regional council, predicted Wednesday night, * Dr. Johnson, a University of North Carolina professor, received the annual award of the Catholic Committee of the South as the region^ outstanding lender. He termed the South "America's No 1 frontier," and said complacency and the region's status as the nation's primary problem area were vanishing. Dr. Johnson forecast a decretive in, the percentage of Negroes in the South, but a rise in their EClI- reliance and aggressiveness. "Machines are ready for large- scale production that can produce cotton at a profit at eight rents I t. pound," he said. "This means that cotton-growing will bo confined almost entirely to the rich flat lands of the Mississippi Delta 'and the Gouthwest, and thnt thousands 'of little cotton farmers will ha\e to turn to other crops or give up farming." ' 'To Expand Industrially He predicted that the South was heading for "unprecedented industrial expansion," but said t)ie .growth of industry, started by tlw ; war, would not. keep pace with ma^ chine-created farms. unemployment of ""If there ever was a grave problem," he said "This is It." . .

(United rress Staff Corresikmilent) PALO ALTO. Cal., Sept. 20. (UP) — A neiv typo of atom smasher designed to generate the first artificial cosmic ray.s was. under construction here today. Construction of the new macnlne was announced by Dr. William W, Hansen. director of Stanford University's microwave laboratory. He saitl the new pipe-like linear accelerator, more than twice as powerful as any atom smashing machine in existence, offered the first real promise of solving the secret of the cosmic rays — the mysterious )ii;lH energy from outer space. The new machine will bo 100 to 200 feet long. It is expected to unleash the greatest charge of electricity ever generated by man—1,000,000,000 volts. A three-root section of the accelerator already has centagc of Negro population in the i Negroes. South would ase ihe race by decreasing prejudice problem against The linear accelerator Is a cousin to the cyclotron! now used to smash the atom. Dr. Hansen said the new machine would give science an easier and cheaper means o[ gaining information about, the electron. The machine will produce radioactive isotopes similar to those made at Oak Ridge. Tcnn. Experiments with cosmic rays are expected to produce spectacular results. At present, the rays can be studied only In stratosphere a planes equipped as flying laboratories. Scientists believe they may hold n clue to some of the fundamental secrets of nature or to new power sources. The new linear accelerator op- crates on the same general theory as th more uiasslK'c cyclotron! now in use. Both achieve atomic disintegration by giving n speeding "atomic bullet" tremendous energy The "bullet" is hurled into an atom which is placed in its path. However, whore the cyclotron whirls'a heavy. Posillvc-chnrged particle In a circle Inside a (magnetic field. tl(e new machine will concentrate its power on the electron, a light, negatively-charged particle. The electron, instead of being whirled around, will bu shot in a straight path down the long, slencl- oi' tube. J''KIDAY, SKI'TKAIIiKK 2«,' i!)<17 CCfP.. 1047 BV »E< f.EfiVirE.
