RESEARCHERS ELECTRON 5 OF SEEK SECRETS OF STARS Pasadena Scientists Nope Probing of Atom Will Yield New Facts. BY AISOCIATLD FilCSi LtAstU W1KL TO IMIbONE LuH ANUfc.LEH. May JO. Prou-Ing the Infiniteiinitiil Interior of un atom may solve the secrets of huge stars ahlnglng billions ot miU-s away, Dr. Bobert A. MlUikan. Nobel prizewinner and Internationally-known physlciHt, told an audience here last nleht. With the aid of a discovery made In electronlo receach some ten yeara ago. Dr. Mllllkan explained, he and an associate, I. B. Bowen, have been able to predict within the past year precisely tha type of light wavea which would be emitted by atoms which had been stripped of their whole outer group ot so-called valence electrons. "We have then found experU mentally," he added, "In special sources of light set up In the Norman Bridge Laboratory In Pasadena, precisely all these types of radiations, hundreds In number. "By finding whether these radiations exist In the light that comes to us from the Stars we now can gain new Information about conditions existing In these stara and compare them. with conditions existing In our artificial courses. We can tell wth certainty, for example, whether the atoms which give rtae to a certain typo of radiation (that Is a given set of spectral lines) have had one or two or three or four or five or six or seven of their outer electrons stripped off from them by extreme temperature conditions." All of these laboratory researches Into the mysterious birth of light rays from atoms, Dr. Mllllkan went on to say, strike at the very heart of what Is perhaps tho most fundamental problem of- tho physical ip fou Netf er see another- seow at least see i n mr r A' ' Of At ersn7 m ' SOUTH SEAS.
