JANUARY 3, 1310 BT.YTHEVTTJLT!

I The. rush of discovery and dei'el-' diluent was scarcely equaled in anv oilier 10-year period of man's history. New chemical means of curing disease, bigger and fnslcr air- ulflncs, exploration of the atom, more Intimate acquaintance with Die vitamins, new synthetic fibers and plastics, bigger bridges and steamships, kept tumbling from science's cornucopia In « bewildering parade. About 40 diseases, Including pneumonia, trachoma, gonorrhea, and streptococcus infections, were successfully attacked by new chcmials developed in tlie Inb- walory, snlfalimide and Its relatives, sulfapyradine, siilfnthlnzole and the like. One of the most common mental diseases, dementia praccox, was treated successfully by shock brought on by overdoses of insulin or metrazol. X-KAYS MADE MORE EXXF.CT1VB ' Remarkable progress in X-ray apparatus, which hns been built built larger and more effective in u greater variety of cases, was climaxed by discovery of means of creating radioactivity artificially in many elements This offer.s vast, pcssibilitics of a substitute for X- rays in cancer treatment. The vUinains have been made practically household pets, stripped of mystery, and mnde useful in treating disease. Physicists succeeded in slill finer subdivision of matter, and found in the atom new fundamental particles, the neutron, positron, and meson. Splitting of the uranium atom, with release of vast amounts of energy, revived hope that atoms can be tapped for practical purposes.

With'-the greatest, tels- .scogc. ever buil'li bearing a 2uo- inclf"'lens,"h ! e,ir completion,' further discoveries were expect?;! among the great stellar explosions or • snpernovae. Man the builder achieved new triumphs: bigger bridges. Golden Gale and Oakland at San Francisco, George Washington at Ne'.v York; more colossal dams, Boulder and Grand Coulee; bigger boats, Normandy and Queen Mary. Aviation as n major transport system came into its own. Pacific and Atlantic service were opened. .Commercial planes carrying 50 people came Into use; military planes verged up toward 500 miles nn hour in speed. ALLOYS I1R1NG STREAMLINED ERA New stainless steel and aluminum alloys helped make these things - possible. Diesel-electric plants of greater efficiency brought the streamlined era to the railroads. Television and facsimile radio transmissions come closer to popular use, nnd a new type of radio using frequency modulations was developed. Fourteen miles into the stratosphere rose puny man, learning more than ever before about weather forecasting, but no enough to escape the disastrous drouth of 1934 and the New England hurricane of 1933. Coal, txir, and water were made to yield new kinds of fiber and casein of milk, soy beans, and such products were made also to yield cloth., Plastics and resins blossomed in smooth color from humble sources never suspected of containing them. MAKING MINDS CONFORM TO PATTERN Electrical waves from the brain, measured, gave nuw clews to what goes on in the brain, and perhaps •on how to cure it when diseased. Propaganda, for many years an art, began to be a science, and the mass manipulation of men's minds began to be reduced to a system. Tlie collapse of much of the world into wnr at the close of the 10.years, and the collapse of much of Die economic world before thai:, led many scientists to begin as never before to consider the relation of (heir discoveries to society. -Why develop sulfanilimide to save, a man's life, and then shoot him? Why develop 500-mile-an-hour airplanes and then use them to sink the newest ships and blow' up the biggest bridges? People began to suspect that| science alone is not enough, lliatj the former child-like trust in sci-| ence to cure the world's ills is insufficient. Scientists themselves be- San to worry about what is done with their discoveries lest science Itseslf go down to death In a tottering world.
