' The second' practical use of the new detection method would come 1 in tracing ocean currents right down to the bottom.of the sea. sur- lae waters are Icnown to contain mere tritium than very deep water. - : ' * , The tritium discoveries — announced yesterday at the Temple Univeralty Research Institute—were the work of W. F. Ubby of the Institute of Nuclear Studies, University of Chicago, and A. V.'Grcsse, of the Temple Institute.

Tritium atoms are radioactive Tests showed that there are one to two thousand atoms of tritium in every drop of water—the water from your, tap, the olflce drinking fountain, your bath.

There also Is a double weight hydrogen known as deuterium and the H-bomb is to be made . of a r combination - of tritium and deuterium. Natural tritium Is formed in the air by cosmic . rays setting loose ahowen of neutrons which hit nitrogen atom* and convert them into tritium.

They used samples from three different aources. These water aamples showed how much tritium ordinary water contains and also that to tome, parts of the earth ther U more tritium falling from Nobody bothered to look up the definition of hesapod. It's a bugology term that means any insect. "Then there was the search started by Jack Cooper, a praise agent at Paramount, lor a virgin to play a leading-role in Cecil B.

Ho Chi MInh's terrorists - have u ... .rn.o* j ItitVUMS ' fltiVC designated Bao Dal government officials as their leading targets The strategy Is to rob the Infant Vietnamese government of key members and to frighten others away from official-service. Terrorists have wounded two Vietnamese cabinet members and shot down several newspapermen wllhin the last few weeks In.Saigon Itself, rile most recent victim Is the Deputy-Governor of Central Vietnam who was killed at his desk In the provincial capital. Hue. (The assassins escaped In each case .. . on prominent individuals are publicized. But In towns and villages all over, the country VIelmlnh terrorism Is an- plied. ' The Vlelmtnh Radio reccntlv disclosed that during 19.19, In South Vietnam alone. 2.335 "spies and enemy agents" were killed, and 1 633 others wounded. The broadcast said 213 village officials were "suppressed ami 104 others forced to quit. In the Indochina war, the French also use mass terrorism. Whole villages are sometimes razed on fllmsv evidence that they have harbored Melmmh or are accountable for some local Vielmlnh operation. The taking of hostages Is practiced by both sides. Security Is Objective Priority objective now in security French forces are being augmented oy n Vietnamese national army and expanded police agencies. PoK-crs pi police have nominally been turned over to the Bao Dal government. However, the French have maintained their own potve security forces which worfc closely with Ihe Vietnamese.
