Atom Split Despite Kentucky Judge FRANKFORT, Ky. (UP) — The atom has been split successfully by scientists, hut H years ago a Judge 3f the Kentucky court of Appeals termed such an undertaking as "impossible." Judge Basil Richardson, who died in 1937, mentioned endeavors of scientists io split the "torn In nn opinion concerning whether justices of the peace in Kentucky hud both civil and criminal Jurisdiction or one without the other. He held there could be no dissev- erance of tile two In Ihese words: "The atom is defined as 'one 'Of the minute Indivisible particles of which, according to atomism, the universe Is composed'." (quoting from Webster's New International Dictionary) and added: "The scientists have labored !o split successfully the atom. The task of distinguishing to any degree between the constitutional Jurisdiction of a Justice of the pence to try a civil action from that of a criminal prosecution is not less doubtful, if not impossible, as that of the scientists to split the atom."
