TUESDAY, FEBRUARY 14, 1950 BLYTHEVILLF, (AUK.) COURIER NEWS Fission Not All Death Dealing; Atomic Center at Los Alamos " Works to Fight Human Disease '- LOS ALAMOS, N. M., Feb. 13. (if,— This atomic center deals In life as well as death. While the nation's top nuclear physicists work In the Los Alamos laboratories to perfect weapons capable of dealing death to hundreds of thousands. * comparatively small group of 34 bio-medical scientists t research that might defeat many of the human race's most destruc- e ailments. ^ At the same time, the 34 work to protect the weapons scientists against the vagaries of the radioactive materials with winch they deal every day. , Directing (he'Los Alamos blo- i, medical research group is Dr. Wright Langham. a slight, energetic man whose scientific ability command,'! the rc.specl of oilier scientists on "Hie hill." Langham has watched the biomedical lab grow from an 18 by 20 foot laboratory and three persons to its present staff nnd 23.laboratories. Three Labs Hehinrl Frnre Only three of the 23 laboratories are inside the security , fence, but . outsiders are not • encouraged to visit. Some of the materials used in the bio-medical re.scarcli could he death-dealing to the cureless. The laboratories are a strange world of gelger counters, special test lutes marie, by some of the nation's best glas-s biowcrs anrt Intricate photographic equipment that enables radioactivity lo take its own picture on raw film. There are rabhils with panels in tiieir cars, permitting scientist.? to study Wood flow. Tliere is a slicer that cuts material under observation to 1'lOLlt micron—and ?. micron Is 30.37 milliontlis of an inch. j._An ultra-centrifuge, a bulky box- •r affair, spins 70,000 revolutions IWnlnute to separate molecules of a substance by sheer cenlrifuga weight. This compares with a cruising speed of 1.900 r.p m.'s for the four-engine Constellation plane. The material to be broken down Is inserted in a drum and all air 1 withdrawn from the chamber before the spinning Begins. Scientists sa"y the drum spins so rapidly lhat even a .small amount of air left in the chamber would produce enough friction to burn the solid steel drum to a shapeless mass.. Beams Explore Material There are electronic beams that pa,ss through material being tested and chart, on film, that material's component parls In comparative peaks, ~ x Radioactive Carbon H Is used to ''tag" chemical coni|)oumls whose activity, in living (issue U being studied. The radloactlvit yof tile lagged compound makes H easier to •race the compound's progress through the body. Los Alamos scientists say lagging of compounds Is proving valuable in the study of brain tumors, goiter, heart diseases, pellagra and cancer. Such tracing methods are enabling science to move ever nearer Its goal of perfecting drugs designed for specific I asks of healing. Langham says about 60, per cent of (he bio-medical staff's time is devoted to ie.search concerned primarily ivilh the health, medical and Biological problems oi interest to the weapons scientists -The oilier'40 per cent is spent in -cientific research of a more fundamental nature, including nlologica) effects of Ionizing radiation and the use of radioactive isotopes in biology and medicine. Carbon 11 Used "Outside" Tiie most concrete production lo come out of the highly theoretical work of the medical research group ivs been tile shipment of Carbon 14 labelled compounds to Oak Ridge for distribution to research cen'ers not affiliated with the Atomic En- '.'i'sy Commission. Las Alamos itself takes its oio- uiedical research pretty much for granted, Just as it does its weapons research. But to the outside observer .the comparison between numerical personnel and the amount of money being spent on the two widely variant projects points up cnrrenl world conditions. When there comes the time wher so much is no longer needed In weapons research and production, the possibilities of atomic health research, as represented by tlic tx>s Alamos bio-medical project, seem almost unlimited. Grady, Fomcd Silo Cow, Gives Birth To 110-Pound Son With No Trouble YUKON. Okla., Feb. 13. W')—The*, lew mother gazed contentedly upon icr strapping day-old offspring, a 'ar cry from the excited Grady the cow that leaped Into a silo a year ago. . . The jittery jump, leading to tlic silt) imprisonment, brought halt the country to Grariy's aid. And th:it was just after the birth of a calf, which died almost immediately. This lime (miner Bill Mach was apprehensive as the blessed event approached. He recalled only too well how the famous Hereford's excitement sent her plunging through a small hole in the silo: and how she seemed destined to starve herself thinner before making the tight squeeze. ; Hearts and suRgcslions from all over the country went out to Grady But five days lalcr found her despairing, s ti|| a t the bottom of the silo. fircase Dkl Ihe Job Then her liberator. Farm Editor Halph Partridge of the Denver Post, succeeded where hundreds had failed. Grease did the Job. A well-greased Grady slipped through the' tiny opening with ridiculous ease, Grady didn't cause nearly so inncli fuss u,j s ti mc In r a ct, she even b'-might Grady n into (he world alxnit 10 days ahead of schedule, hardly giving Mach time to work i>p n big worry. And afte it was all over and the famed row had her wobbly-legged 110-pound son, Mach heaved a tr«- mcndous sigh His relieved comment: "There just wasn't any trouble at all. Grady didn't even look at the silo all day long." British Scientists Rescued After Two Years on Icy Antarctic Island LONDON, Feb. 14—f/T>—The Col-*'— onial Office repored yesterday the| rescue of 11 scientists by ski plane! arid boat from an icy anlarctic island where they had been stranded, more than two years. ' |Wie 1,200-ton supply ship John *^cce cul through floes to the edge of the Ice field surrounding the StonitiRton island base Sunday and took aboard the last six. Five other -4;ad been taken off earlier in the rescue operation by planes equipped with skis. The scientists, all members of » British weather and geological study group, are now on their way to the Argentine Islands, 200 miles to tiie north. The John Biscoe was defeated by Icepacks in two rescue attempts last year. The scientists were sent to the untsrcllc base In 1948 for a one year survey. They kept In touch with the world by-radio. Pott!e With Indian Police CALCUA. India. Feb. 14. (API — Police fought a pitchE-d battle yesterday with bow and arrow wielding tribesmen about to beat a fellow villager to death for violating Iribal law. At least two tribesmen were killed. More than 7.000 natives from a Dihar village had gathered to witness the execution ot the defendant, found guilty of keeping his daughter-in-law as a concubine. Conviction calls for boating the offender to death and seizing all his property. Police then into the ranks of the tribesmen and finally dispersed them.
