E. Brotlrt. •professor of physics at the University of California. Dr. Erode, in translating scientific discoveries in the Field of- cosmic radiation, into simple language, presents this picture: Atomic particles of very high energy, from 10 billion to 10,000 billion election volts, asc produced in the space beyond the sun and its' planets aod a few of these enter the earth's atmosphere. At the top of the atmosphere, most of these particles are involved' in collisions with atoms, losing their eziergy as a result and pro- ducmg' from the collisions gamma and other atomic particles electrons anr mesotrons.

Congress Blooms With 60-Secoml Orations On State Of Nation By PETER EDSON Courier Xcnvs Washington s are the only cos- ^fjS^jrfjh^x'Wfyi ,'• n:{x 1" t i C 1 C S QCnetl"{\tillS! ^^^^l^topiieach the earth in qtmn- tii!^5^Ss^}|fprm. with additional pafliel^Tprocluced from their -col- lisipnt^with atoms in the atmosphere, most of the cosmic radiation at the earth's surface. Occasionally an electron will have sufficient energy—originally about 10,000 billion electron volt-si —to penetrate the atmosphere. These high-energy electrons cause a cosmic ray shower of a variety of .atomic particles at the earth's surface with about' a million secondary ' particles spread over an area of 10,000 square yards. Science, Dr. Erode says, has not determined where the original cosmic rays get their enormous en- erby. It may be from a cbmbina- tion of electric and magnetic fields or'possibly from the result of the smashing of atoms by extreme nuclear' collisions, thus freeing high energy particles. Many mesotrons do not reach the earth, Dr. Erode explains, because they explode into ordinary electrons and very small pieces of uncharged matter in about two- millionths of a second, thus disintegrating high in the atmosphere. WASHINGTON.— With more than 400 congressmen in the House of Representatives, time is the essence thereof and there simply aren't enough minutes to grant all the yood soions the right, of unlimited speech making. Maybe such a situation is fortunate in that it saves the public eardrum from a severe beating, but to overcome this lack of time for uncontrolled Jawing, Congress has adopted u number of restrictions. Neatest of these is the device whereby the congressman stands until recog^ecl by the presiding officer, whereupon he says, "Mr. Speaker, I ask unanimous consent to address the House for one minute." NO O15JKCTIONS The speaker says. "Without objection it is so ordered." and since no one ever objects, the people's choice comes front and center to a microphone and fires both barrels. Individually, these choice morsels of oratory don't save the country. They are seldom reported. Succeeding; outbursts may be as unrelated as consecutive items in a make a synthetic pearl necklace of the times. Prom them, you get a string of beads to tell just.what marbles of annoyance are rolling around loose to upset what .should be the stately feet of the lawmakers. There was a burst . of these minute orations just after Congress returned from its Easter vacation. Many of the boys had been home, mending fences. They found other tilings than crocuses sticking out of the ground, and they reassembled eager to tell the colleagues what they had seen. Collectively, they show to a remarkable degree the temper of Congress today.

Coiffures Turn Military ROCPIESTER, N. Y. (UP)—HOW will madam have her coiffure— navy wave or army curl? .]. Edward Dwyer, manufacturer of beauty equipment, predicts such a military trend in forthcoming hairdos. A military influence is practically -inescapable, he told a gathering of Rochester hairdressers recently, both in beauty treatment equipment and results. "Beauty equipment of tomorrow." he said, "will be made of plastics and wood because of the defense demand for present materials." WASHINGTON (UP) — Wildlife of the United StPtes must be protected against persons who would destroy it in the name of national defense, according to Ira Gabrielson, director of the Interior Department fish and wildlife service. He emphasizes that American conservationists should be on guard against proposals similar to that recently made in England that "native wildlife" be exploited as an emergency source of "such delicacies as badger hams, bear steaks, roast python and hedgehog." "I wouldn't be surprised to hear scrneone propose any time now that we relax our hunting regulations to provide more emergency- time food," he said, adding that no conceivable emergency could justify such action. Today, he said, "there are forces and interests always ready to take advantage of any program which promises to divert attention from their own .selfish activities. Already there has been evidence of a tendency to"advocate ns defense 1 measures drainage and dam construction projects thnl have never had enough intrinsic merit to receive public .support "We can expect if public fever mounts in this field, to .see increasing demands for all sorts of things which in the long run would, be harmful to thus nation.'' "I believe that our conservation program is so vital to the future welfare of this country that there can be no excuse for a letdown in its progress. If this country is to continue to be a good place to live in. or one worth fighting for, we must use the resources of soil, and water intelligently, not only in uoorl times, but, in bad times, it: national emergencies as well as in normal times. "Only in this way can \ve be assured of an adequate annual return capable of sustaining and feeding our population." The hunting preserve of one red nnt colonv mav cover 17 acres.

White sidewalltires extra* W OULDN'T a sprinter or a long- distance runner look silly trying to race with a clothespin firmly clamped on his nose! t, in a sense, something fairly close to that happens in nearly every car that lacks Buck's sensational Compound Carburetion.j For your engine has to breathe in huge quantities of air to be mixed with gasoline before it is burned in the cylinders. But single-carburetor fuel supply systems can handle only a given volume oi air. To that extent, then, an ordinary engine has a clothespin on its nose — a limitation on air supply for big power operation. We remove that clothespin very simply — by having tivo carburetors; one that handles all casual driving smoothly and efficiently, another to jump in with more air and more fuel when you call for extra power by stepping on the gas treadle! Simple? Very simple indeed. And simply marvelous in the extra FIRF.HAU, wallop it gives you and in the gas savings you get —as much as 10% to 1,5% over pre-" vious Buicks with the same-size engines.
