On January 22, 1952, he received a Treasury Department check dated March 28, 1950. Here he looks with puzzled admiration at the pretty baby-blue check, printed on heavy, expensive paper, all fixed up wiih punch holes for those "thinking" machines they have down in Washington. The check was for on* cenl—the amount of his refund. Moore is trying to find out how much of his tax money it cost the government to do the bookkeeping, write and mail the check and nurse it along on Its nearly two-vear trio to his mailbox. •7 HUNK I. CAXEY WASHINGTON (f>— The nillon's' vast plant, for the projected hydrogen bomb will cost more than twice as much a* originally estimated, the Atomic Energy Commission reported today.

"Continued" Increase In the output of fissionable materials—at . lower cost, than ever. 4. "Substantial" and "significant advances" In wcapont re- a**rch and development. I. Increased domestic production of uranium ores thanks to expanded exploration, opening of new producing areas, and incentive bonuses for uranium producers who collected more than $250,000 In such 'prlie-s" last year. 4. Research findings with radioactive Isotopes that may lead to Improved methods of farming "and lowered costi of food and fibre production." 1. Further agricultural research Indicating that atomic "rays," while providing no stimulus to plants, may aid In breeding new varieties of crop*, and also aid In the ftght against certain crop diseases.
