THE WELLINGTON (TEXAS) LEADER Thursday, June 4, 1964 Decay Formula Shows Decrease of Fallout COLLEGE STATION—A nuclear bomb is a fearful and devastating weapon. However, should our nation be attacked •with this weapon, the greatest danger and our greatest need for protection, would be from radioactive fallout. Protection from nuclear fallout entails three general principles. They are distance, time, and shielding. The principle of distance is simply that the greater the distance ^from the source of radiation, the greater the protection. When this distance is doubled the intensity of the radiation Is reduced to % and with three times the distance it is reduced to l/9th. Time is another important principle in protection from fallout. Radioactivity from a •nuclear weapon begins to lose its energy soon after the explosion through the process 3cnown as radioactive decay. A formula, important in determining decay, is that with a :seven-fold increase in ittfme there is a ten-fold decrease in •dose rate. For example, if one •hour after a blast the radiation intensity measures 1,000 roentgens per hour, it will de•cay to 100 roentgens per hour In seven hours. In 49 hours it "will decrease 'to 10 roentgens per hour, and in 343 hours or about two weeks, it will decay i& 1 roentgen. Thus it would !be safe to fleave shelter after two weeks. 'Shielding is the tihrd principle of protection from radiation. Dense, heavy material is .needed to stop 'gamma radiation but any material placed between people a'nd the radiation offers some protection. All *hese materials offer about the same amount of protection: Three feet of earth, 24 inches •of concrete, 2 inches' of lead, .and 90 inches of wood, give excellent protection. Shielding is realty the only •effective method of protection from radiation and everyone .should have some type of fallout shelter. These shelters will .be discussed in future articles on civil defense.

Collingsworth County Farm Bureau Phone 447-2515 Dee Burba, Manager Study of Sorghum Midge Stepped Up The "recreational" activities of the sorghum midge are under close scrutiny by Texas A&M University scientists'. James Harding, Texas Agricultural 1 Experiment Station entomologist, has taken 113 grass samples to date from fields over the South Plains. These samples' are being held in the laboratory at 'the South Plains Research and Extension Center at Lu'bbock. Harding checks the samples constantly for possible early midge emergence from the plant heads. Willing cooperation of electrical power companies on the South Plains has allowed (placement of 28 sticky insect traps on power poles in a nine-county area. Counties are: Lamb, Hale, Floyd, Hockley, ILubbock, Crosby, Terry, Lynn and Garza. Harding says weekly grass samplings, along with checking of the insect traps on power poles, will give an Insight into "why" and "how" the midge attains such damaging numbers to reduce yields of August-blooming grain sorghum. A few adult midge began emergence during the middle of May and are suspected of depositing their eggs in available grass hosts. Study of the grass samples will determine this in the near future. In contrast to early reports of midge activity, it is believed these are the first midge oui;. There are several orange, "midge-like creatures" on the High Plains that are not sorghum midge, but greatly resemble tlhem. the entomologist says. Several "allies" in the fight against the sorghum midge have been found this year. Two \vas)p-like parasites of itjhe dia- pausing midge larva have been obtained from midge-infestedl sorghum florets. An external mite has also been found living on adult sorghum midge. Up to nine mites per fly has been observed. FOR SAiLE—35 GFM cooler, a good one. Price $35. L. E.
