FRIDAY, DECEMBER 5, 1»M .,; BLYTHEVILLE (ARK.) COURIER NEWS tAGB THRfiB- Scientist Tells How H-Bomb Can Be Tamed for Peace By FRANK CARKT AP Science Reporter WASHINGTON (* — An »lomic •dentist came up today with the first public explanation on how hydrogen bomb rnaferjals might be tamed for peaceful use&, such *s power: Electricity discharged through a thin wire might set off a "slowed down" reactilon which could be controlled for various purposes, Dr. Oeorge Oamow told' « reporter. Ha s»ld there are other "theoretically possible" techniques that might be even better, but he declined to amplify. Up until recently the general view, incudlng that of most top •dentists, has been that atomic energy could be released from hydrogen only through ik terrific explosion. Gamow, Internationally-known theoretical. physicist who serves as a consultant to the Atomic Energy Commission, made the com menis when asked about a recent statement by Sen. Hickenlooper (R-Iowa>, ; a member of the joint congressional atomic committee. Hickenlooper said that "the hy- . drogen picture contains some hope, In time, for.peaceful and constructive applications." ' ' The senator's statement provided • the- first Indication that atomic officials see a possibility of using hydrogen fusion reactions for something other than projected H-bombs. The AEC has said noth ing along that line. The consensus of most top scien lists has been not only that fusion would lovely* an •xploclon In Itself —but ibo th«t U would have to triggered by »n exploding A- jomb. Hlckenlooper's statement was described by the Federation of American Scientists as "more startling to scientists outside the AEC than the 'news' and rumors of « hydrogen bomb...." Dr. Oamow said he didn't know what Hickenlooper had In mind. But he told a reporter that it's at least theoretically possible to ?et a "slowed-down" atomic re action with hydrogen bomb ma terials by causing g powerful electric discharge through a thin wire placed in,such materials. The idea of the electric discharge, he said, would b« to pro vide the tremendously high temperatures required to make such materials fuse. Asked how even small explosions would lend themselves to control for power purposes, Gamow said it's succession of non-explosive fusion reactions which might In turn trigger a succession of non-explosive fusion reactions which might be utilized for power and other purposes. Gamow said the Ideal way of getting industrial atomic power from hydrogen would be to have furnaces capable of being operated continuously at temperatures of a few hundred thousand degrees—so as to provide adequate heat for fusing 1 'hydrogen. . But he declared the drawback there Is to find furnace construction materials capable of containing 1 such heat without melting nway themselves.
