PAGE 10 — THE BAYTOWN SUN, MONDAY, JANUARY II. 1954 Blast Out Secrets NEW U.S. ATOM SMASHER 10 TIMES MORE POWERFUL By JOSEPH L. MYLER WASHINGTON-, Jan. 11 - flPl- The" government announced Monday^it .will build ••" a revolutionary new atom ' smasher ~ 10 -times more vaowerfui than any now .ex- isting''—' with which to. blast new secrets out of the heart of mailer. The liew machine will drive protons Ihydrogen nuclei) at energies uja ,tp 25 billion'electron'volts. It ' •wiilarbe • completed in five to six years at the Atomic Energy Commission's, Brookhaven iJJ.Y.) National Laboratory, With it, scientists hope to plumb deeper ..than ever- before into the .infinitesimal ; hearts of atoms and discover secrets thus far success- ftilh piotected bv the atom's "ast nuclear foices What the" find conceiv ablj could open biand new avenues to exploitation by man of atomic energ\ The ne\v machine will be a neighbor of Brookha\en's Cosmo^tion the most powerful "p<«iJcl« accelerator' now in operation The Cosmotron has dm en protons at enencs of 2 3 billion electron volt 1 ? The proton "racetrack" of the new atoms, smashers will be 700 feet in dianietci enclosing a space an which a couple of football fields could be comfortdbh accommodated Its name is "Tne Alternating Giadient S>nchrntron' 1 and it will cost S20 million. The new machine is possible because scientist-; a few years back hit on a way of stepping up the "kick" which could b e impaited with a given amount of magnetic power IQ atomic particles used as projectiles. Strong alternating magnetic fields are used to focus piotons into relatuelv tin beams which can be shipped, around the racetrack with smaller electromagnets than otherwise would be necessarj The new accelerator, though moie than 10 times as powerful. uiU have onh 500 hundied moie tons of steel than the Cosmotron An' atom smasher based on.sim- ilar principles will be built by a dozen associated.European nations at Geneva, Switzerland, The new most powerful particle accelerator now : in the works is a Betatron under construction at the University of California Radiation Laboratory at Berkeley, Calif This machine now pietty well along. will Tjush particles into the five to seven billion \olt lange Not until the new Biookha\en smasher is woikin? howevei will man be able to approach m the laboratory the fantastic energies developed by cosmic rays. These particles from Witer space occasionally hit energy peaks in the quadrillions of electron volts. Cosmic ray study already has revealed to science an ever-growing list of atomic particles, among them the mysterious mesons which may be the "glue" that keeps nuclear forces confined. Depri'.ed of this glue whatever it niay be. all matter—including the paper on which this appears— would explode'like'an atomic bomb. Even though' • man making atomic and hydrogen -bombs, he still knows little about thp natuie of the forces mvohed. And though science has delected loughlv a score of atomic pai tides, it does not understand the roles they play or how they fit .into the strucurte of the nucleus. The powerful new tool to be built at Brookhaven may supply that understanding. If it will give mankind a big, boost, toward complete conquest of the'atom.

WASHINGTON Jan U —( A progi am of progiessivc federal tax.cuts based on reduced national cost was proposed Monday by the Committee for Economic Development. The non-profit research organization's plan is similar in sonjc respects to tax suggestions made .to Congress Thursday bv President Eisenhower'.. But it streed that all future fax rate "depend almost cntu eh on rational secunt\ needs. Like Mr Eisenhower, it said there must be tax stimulate economic.growth while-maintaining a balanced budget.--'Biit-un- like the President, it said corporate - and excise tax reductions scheduled this April should not be delayed "if-that is consistent with maintaining a balanced, cash budget " It said,that taxes in-fiscal 1955. starting Julv 1 could be cut anoth- .er $2.5 billion — in addition to the cuts which took effect Jan 1 — if planned defense. cost .cuts. are carried out If business continues good and federal spending is furthei le- duced,-it foresaw another S10 million ta\ cut b> fiscal 1958 The,committee said it.-would give high prionlj, when Revenue needb permit, to. reductions .which.-would .increase the nation's economic Growth. In this bracket it included income taxes at.all levels and most excise levies. "Except for liquor tobacco ana gasoline " it said "W P can find no justification for selective excises " It called this method of taxation irrational and said "sales .taxation appeals to us k> be inferior to income taxation levied at rates that do not seriously -three tenen economic growth." The best way, it said, is/a progressive reduction of excises until all aie eliminated But it added that if this goal can not be achieved:within four or five years, "a general sales tax (at the retail level) could be enacted." It vigorously opposed a manufacturers' tax,: warning that such imposts can be pviamided and pose a senous but den on small business. Regarding the corporate 1 tax, it said that if uie reduction from 52 to 47 per cent scheduled in Apui. isn't logical, then it should be reduced to 50 per cent. 11 said the 52 per cent rate harms corporate investment and spending. •It sided with Mr. Eisenhower .in proposing moie libeial depiecia- .tion allowances for businessmen. It also assailed "double taxation of dividends, —- at the corporate and stockholders levels —• a topic the President did not .mention. The committee suggested;. Con- giess take a new look at the 2*5 per cent capital gams tax and give investors a bettci bieak in the investment field by. easing UD on the revenue loss in capital gains snles.

The board, it is known, had been postponing action on a bout'20-cases for lack of a fifth member to break what appeared to-be shaping up as a possible tie vote. A' number of the cases involve what Chairman Guy Farmer has described as "re-examinations" ot past NLRB interpretations of the Taft-Hartley law. Among the more important are policies on how much jurisdiction the NLHB will assert;.in the future .ini'secondary boycotts. The cases also .involve interpretations 'oCuact. , 've seen 'em oil and they just can't touch it! New 54 DODGE Now On Display!

Beeson, a Republican and former director of thp. Food Machinery & Chemical Corp., San Jose, had the backing of Vice President Richard M. Nixon and Farmer, himself an Eisenhower appointee. The third man appointed by (he new administration is .Phil p Ray Rodgcrs. The holdovers are Ivar Peterson and former Sen. Abe Murdock of Utah. On the question of NLRB jurisdiction, -Farmer/has -stated publicly •that he believes the old NLRB "extended the hand of the government too far into small and essen- •tially local disputes." He would prefer to leave more of these cases .to the states. • . Labor unions in general are opposed to .the board's reducing its jurisdiction because of many state laws,-especially in the South, are tougher 1 on unions .than the Taft- Hartley law.. They also dislike the idea because national contracts are impaired when faced by a variety of state laws. Reflection NEW BRITAIN. Conn.

"'Dr. L. 'A.

It works this .way. Young. mc:i from certain selected colleges thflt have approved the plan-can'spend three years at their school, taking art courses such as literature, history and" languages. After three years, and upon approval of their records, they can transfer to Cal Tech as juniors and spend two years studying sci- . once..' ' ."-'.'• . '"' ' •' • -- After five years they emerge with B.A. degrees from their original schools and a B.S. degree from Cal Tech. Schools already approved to participate in the 'plan lire Occidental- .College in i-os, Angeles, Pomona Collegei Clarempnt, Calif., and Whitman College, in Walla Walla, Wash. •''••• ' ' The faculty of Cal Tech voted to give the plan a trial. It is called a "3-2" program, similar to plans already in operation at other schools •in. other .fields, of study... . Dr. DuBrldge said that for the present the plan will be limited to not more' than five, institutions participating with Cal Tech. But "if, 'as expected, the. plan works out to the mutual-benefit of the students and 1 the colleges in the next few years, the number of participating institutions will be increased," DuBridge added.
