This was disclosed today hy tho Monsanto Chemical Co.. opi-rat'ii-a of the Clinton Laboratories at Oak- ridj'e, which also listed radioactive carb.m. phosphorous and sulfur anioiiK the leaders. .So far there have been about -IGG isotopes ideiuiiied, but many of them ; have little value nt pre.sent because of their .short half-life time. Some expend their radioactivity in the fraction ol' a second. Iodine 131, however, has a half- life time of eight days and has, proved its value in the treatment of some cases of thyroid cancer. The isotropc phosphorous is benv used in experiment to combat ten- '• keinia. U has a two-week half-life time. j Carbon 14. with a half time of G.OOO years, is probably loo powerful' for general use in the hospitals. Ijut is expected to be widely used in til.; industrial field. Dr. Waldo E. Colin, co-ordin.-U'jj- ot thc radioisolopcs. development of the Clinton Laliiratories. behey's that carbon 14. however, may ^ive science new knowledge that "may he as significant and far reaching to mankind as the discovery of nuclear fission itself." He said that biologists, using cai 1 - bati M us a tracer, "are workiat; to find out how plants use sunlight and carbon dioxide to make energy ^mtainiiig cumpminds. and how man •'W'Verscs the process to #et energy to iun. work and play." Cohn said that investigator;; can introduce carbon 1-1 into plant and animal life processes, and then can trace with electronic devices the course of the carbon. • Radioactive iotiine and carbon first were produced in the atom- smashing cyclotron. This was slow and cumbersome method. $10,006~Tomed / By Negro Using Laundry Swindle ATLANTA. Gil., March 27. (UPi — How James o.

The styling department is almost four .times as large. , There's a now s-ph-lt in the organization thut for so many year.-; set the puce in the nmbinobil" world.

Experts say that all major manufacturers are working along similar lines. .and that whatevcre car von 'buy probably will offer such transmission, as standard or oplioiTal equipment, before long. The new Ford is expected to be lower and wider-bodied willi wider seats. Seats will be set fur- .tlicr forward, lo get them between the firings for easier riding.
