First Atomic Reactor Is Near Completion By HOWARD W. BI,AKKSI,KF, Associated frfff Science Editor IDAHO PALLS, Idaho, Nov. 21. (A'l — The first atomic reactor on the vast, new Snake River' plains site Of tile TJ. S. Atomic Energy Com mission Is nearlng completion. On this new oven ciei>end the main hopes for atomic power and possibly most of the heralded blessings of an atomic age. This reactor, called a breeder pile, Is designed for i brilliant, rtnr- Ing and still somewhat doubtful scientific venture, namely to create fuel. M present there Is not enough atomic fuel in the entire world for more than transitory power. tifw Work Strictly I'eaoe This new work is strictly peace, and It has been rapid. The Snake River Me Is only a year old. It Is an undulating, treeless, 400,000. acre expanse of sage brush and ancient lava, with no volcanoes among the bordering mountains. Two other reactors already started, for naval power and testing materials. The trio are all but lost to view In the great reservation. The Commission announced that the breeder would be completed by (he end of this year, but has given no specific dates since. The size is a secret. However, the breeder's announced cost, $3,300,000 marks it as a small brother in a family of giants. The other two are costing respectively $26,000,000 and $18.000,000. The spectre of defeat which the breeder will try to correct showed Up In the great Hanford Works Plants in Washington. There uranium atoms of atomic weight 235 split to convert ordinary uranium Into plutonlum, which Is new atomic fuel. The spectre is the fact thai the uranlum-235 at Hanford creates Jess plutonlum than the amount of 235 which splits. ' Not Much Uranlum-235 There Isn't much uranium-235, not enough to keep up this losing race. Somehow the uranlum-235, before it is all gone, has to be forced to breed like animals—where one sire produces two offspring. In this case, one atom must breed more than one. If that is done, it will be possible to convert all the world's or. diniry uranium into plutonlum, and there is enough for power almost Indefinitely, when solved. Plutonium will do the breeding, probably even better than uranium. This breeder will produce some power. It has several new technical features, exciting to scientists, such as using the same kind of high-speed neutrons that explode atomic bombs, and molten metal u the firebox to make steam. ,' NOTICE Notice la hereby given that a petition to abandon that part of Thirteenth street (formerly James Street) In the City of Blytheville, • Arkansas, that extends north from West Main street through Clyde Robinson Addition, has been filed with the City Council of the City of Blytheville, and that on the 12th day of December. 1950, the council will hear said petition and determine whether such property should be .abandoned and vacated as a street, and whether all abutting property owners' and other persons directly Interested in said matter have' consented to such abandonment. • Dated this Hth day of November 1950. W. I. Malin, city Clerk H|16-22 EDSON Continued from Page * sist Invasion? 3. What about the "will to light" In western Europe? 4, Will the western world have to live indefinitely In a state of siege? Or Is there any hope that the Kremlin will change its course? There was unanimous agreement by the ministers to whom these questions were addressed on only one point. It was a belief that at the present time the Kremlin had no "Intent" of starting a general war. There was an Immediate reservation, however, to the elfect that the Kremlin might blunder into a war because the Russian leaders did not understand the western mind. Korea was offerd as a glaring example. Because the members of the Russian Politbureau could not cosccivo of anyone not a Korean being willing to fight to defend that country's Independence, the Russians blundered into a war. A similar reservation was expressed by the European leaders with regard to the United States. They feared that this country, having little understanding of the Russian mind, might take the lead In forcing a war on Europe before it is ready. This is apparently the argument on which Senator Taft bases his oposition to American heavy re- nrinamcnl of Europe. He has said in the past that he fears this will incite Russia to attack. Prolecllon Is Found In Will lo Fight for Freedom Concerning western Europe's will to fight, a paradoxical situation has been revealed. The countries which are right up against, the Russian guns—Finland, Norway, Turkey, Greece and even western Berlin—have plenty of will to fight, it is believed that the very fact the Kremlin knows these people will fight to the death for their freedom, gives them a certain protection. same paradox is given as an TOP DOG IN HIS CLASS-Someday the smartest pooch in Salina Kans., will be Brownie, who is a regular scholar in teacher Doris Short's flrst grade class at Franklin School there. Brownie arrives on time daily, sils in a ring of chairs while pupils read, and is seen here joining the students in the pledge of allegiance to the Flog explanation as to why Sweden and Switzerland have been able to slay out of the last two wars. But this argument Is also advanced us reason for speeding up the rearmament of the western European nations as much as possible . The main problem for the United States in stiffening French, Italian and German resistance Is to convince them that their strength Is being built up not to wage war, but to prevent war. The hope expressed by most European statesmen questioned seemed to be that if this position of strength could be maintained for ten years, It would be reasonable to expect that the present top men in the Kremlin would be dead. The men who replaced them might conceivably be more Interested in building up their own country tha: in destroying others. But these views were expressed more as a hope than as a prediction. the /ticket designed for any The Brigade Jacket... tailored by Hart Schaffner & Marx from tightly-woven Byrd Cloth that repels wind, snow or rain with ease.

And once you've sampled the sweet response of Dynaflow Drive*-you feel a big lack in anything else. But Set's be practical about all tin's. What docs it cost to buy-and to own-this star performer? The first answer is a look at delivered priccs-and most people still are surprised to find lhat a car *S.'anrfard(m KOA OJM STKK. optional at utracoito* which offers so much actually costs so little. That's true, whether you put the SPECIAL, the SUPER or the superb ROADMASTER against other cars of comparable dimensions. They certainly shine on a first-cost basis. But this is only half the story, as you'll soon find out on any used- car lot. Year in, year out, the resale prices of Buicks stay much closer to first- cost than the prices of cars with lesser merit it And among recent models, Buicks with Dynaflow Drive command such a premium that you can almost figure you get this dream drive for free. So why not let yourself go? Why not walk right into your Buick dealer's now and say, put me down for one of those! There's no time like the present for showing your good judgment. , In HEN*/ ;.
