.MOPE STAR, HOPE, ARKANSAS Tuesday, August J 3. 1941 Behind Walls s |f Oak Ridge Atom-Plant •- * By PETEft EDSON NEA Staff Correspondent Oak Ridge, Tenn., Aug. 9 —NEA)—The Clinton Laboratories, which began work In Sept.. 1943, on a one-year .experiment to determine the "know-how" of atomic bomb making and handling,, have now developed into one of the most .important scientific, institutions in the country. The intended temporary nature of the establishment is apparent on every, hand. When the first newspapermen were taken into I 1 " 1 its holy of holies a few days ago, they found wooden and galvan- izedd iron buildings nearly everywhere. They were painted a neat gray with green trim. But the place still looked more like a .construction camp or a mining town than . a spotless laboratory. Instead of the white frock coats •which the scientists wear in the ' advertising illustrations, the Clinton technicians wore field shoes PIN-WORMS At Last A Real Treatment! Anyone who has ever had Pin-Worms knows how tormenting and omharrassinu this infection can be. and how hard it may be to deal with the creatures, once they get a foothold inside the body. Today, thanks to a special, medically recognized drug (gentian violet). a highly effective treatment has been made possible. This'drue is the vital ingredient in P-W. the Pin-Worm tablets developed in the laboratories of Dr. D. Jayne & Son. P-W tablets are small and easy to take, and they act in a special way to remove Pin-Worms. So watch out for the warning signs that may mean Pin-Worms in your child or yourself—especially the aggravating rectal itch. And don't delay. Ask your druggist for JAYNE'S P-W right away, and follow the directions. Satisfaction guaranteed, or your money beck. . It's easy to remember: P-W for Pin-Wornu.. and coveralls, or dust plain pants and shirts; A bis barn-like frame structure going up near the pilot plant pile antl the "hot lab" is to house what has been nicknamed "Dr. E. P'. WJgner's College bf Nu"ipn- Knowledge.' ' It will open about Sept. 1 with a select stuuent uuuy of 35 —ab'out half chemists, half physicists. AH will be graduate scientists now employed by leading industrial research organizations, or heads of science departments of leadin universities. They will be coming lo this somewhat bleak, barren and out of the way place to learn how to handle nuclear energy atoms and isotopes that hold unknown secrets. In this un-campus-like campus will be orte of the highest institutions of scientific learning in the world. One of Original Five Dr. Wigner, Director of Research at the Clinton Laboratories and dean of this new college, was one of the' original quintel of Szilard, Fermi, Heller and Keisskopf —foreign-born scicnlist refugees in America who saw the possibilities of atomic fission and persuaded President Roosevelt to launch a project to develop its war-time uses. Wigner is of medium height and slight' build. He is quiet- voiced, shy, spectacled, balding. He was born in Hungary 44 years ago and got out of Germany in 1930! In 1941 he married a New England school teacher. His regular job now is as professor at Princeton, but he has a year's leave' of absence to direct re search for Monsanto Chemical at Clinton Lab. He has a good "American" sense of humor. When he was asked about some technical ques tion he could not answer for se curity reasons; he ducked it with the remark, "Well, when you kill a cat, you cither want the meat or the skin. But here is more than one way to- kill a cat, anc more than one way to skin it." Another of the projects as signed to Clinto Lab is the con signed to Clinton Lab is the con struction bf the first atomic "pile' for the development of power.

Plans for this power pile are still on the drawing board. No .ime limit has been set for ils complclion, but the work is being Dushed. It will be a pilol plant, >uill for cxperimejilal purposes >nly ,and nol lo furnish power 'or any particular project. Engineers from General Electric Weslinghouse, Allis-Chalmers and olhcr manufactorers are serving as consullanls on the slaff. The big problem is to build an nstallation that will withstand .he tremendous heat thai must be developed. The pile will really be an "atomic fire box" developing the heat nigh pressure steam. for a boiler, to generate The steam will be used to drive a turbine which in turn will drive a standard electric generator. Third Big Job Third big project at the "temporary" Clinton lab will be construction betatron, of a 100-million-volt an electronic microscope, and other laboratory equipment to supplement existing research facilities. In this equipment will also be a new general purpose pile for further research Among the problems which this laboratory will tackle will be research into what holds the atom together . Scientists know, for inslance,. lhat an alom consists of protons and neutrons —positive and negative , electric charges whirling about in a sub-microscopic solar system of their own. What, holds them together, what keeps them from flying-apart, scientists do ' not know, but they'd like to find out. For a "temporary" laboratory, built only to prepare the first experimental quantities of fissionable material, it's some job to learn how to handle a chain reaction with safety, to train a few people, and build a pilot plant for the huge Hanford piles which made the material that went into the bomb.

Japanese imperial hcadquartc .' announcement of'-a 'victory,'in' the' engagement was "a big 111',"- the newspaper Asahi said bluntly; an it termed sending the warship into battle without aerial cover a miserable blunder. Quoting the ship's captain, Jiro Nomura, ont of the few survivors, Asahi told this story of the Ya- malo's final attack: Carrying only sufficient fuel for a one-way trip, the Yamato left for Okinawa on" April G, 1945, after all aboard had held a "farewell banquet," knowing the. .hopelessness of their mission.

The Yamato fought a seven-hour battll with American planes during which she was hit 1 by ' 12 torpedoes, seven large bombs and many small ones. Her purpbsc had been to sink as many American ships off Okinawa as possiblt; instead, she was driven;to sea by 'ceaseless American air attacks.

TEATSORTH 'Tokyo, Aug; 14 —(UP)— Hidekl. Tojo, Japan's Pearl.jH.aibor pre- _, rhier, on- the first • -anniversary' Oi, his , nation's ... surrender, praised,-- -Amfcrican .'iecupation policy today, as "impressively excellent" and called on all nations to renounce war. • •' - '. v The wizened little man whose name became a synonym for the Japanese war machine said he believed nations must find some, olher method for setlling Iheir differences. ,: Tojo said he considered the Pacific war unavoidable , "since Japan wished to live." "I also believe," he said, "that Japan fought in self defence.' "War as an instrument for adjusting international- differences has been disqualified by Ihe re- sulls of Iwo world wars," he said. "Japan, by her very crossed Ihe threshold of defeat, >,.«.**,-« ...- new era""irT which the greatest inlelli- gcnce and the greatest political genius' must be mobilized to substitute for war a different method of setlling Ihe problems of mankind." "1 am praying 'ior the success of these efforts," Tojo said in a vvriten interview with the United Press. "Before their great importance, thoughts of my personal fate —T whatever may come — shrink into utter insignificance." Tojo did not mention the United Nations specifically, but Dr. Ichiro Kiyosc, his attorney at the .war crimes trial, said 'the former premier hud referred to the U.

Commending General Douglas Coffee Prices Increased by the OPA Washington, Aug. 14 —(/P) —OPA today authorized immediate retail price increases on coffee, ranging from 10 to 13 cents per pound. The increase results from: 1. Cancellation of an import subsidy of 3 cents a pound. The subsidy was discontinued when the price control law lapsed July 1. 2. An increase of about 2 cents a pound authorized tor importers June 28. This increase had not been passed on lo retail levels. 3. A further increase of about 3 cents a pound in importers ceilings authorized today as an inducment to increased coffee importation. The amount of the retail increase will varv depending upon method of distribution of coffee, OPA said. The agency authorized an increase of 10 1-4 cents a pound for processors of roasted coffee, coffee compounds, soluble coffee and soluble coiiec products. OPA said lhal wholesalers and retailers, including retail wagon route sellers, may apply their regular percentage markups to the new. higher cost of coffnc. Also today, OPA authorized ceiling price increases £or Jry edible beans to offset cancellation of subsidy payments. The agencv said the biggest increase at retail will be about two cents a pound tor red kidney beans. White navy beans will go up about one cent a pound. Housewives will begin paying the higher price sas soon as suppliers have notified grocers of the increase, OPA said. Mac-Arthur's occupation policy as "impressively excellent," Tojo said there was a "natural tendency, among the Japanese people to respect calm, and good, orderly conduct." Those'-.Qualities, he said,," , were largely responsible ior tho// smooth administration in Japan; K since the end of the war. Toio said he had some misgw-% ings' about- the future when Emperor Hirohito read Ihe imperial rescript calling lor the end of hostilities.. .. He added, however, that he was "convinced that our people are endowed with qualities that iu; time may enable -them to serve the interests of humanity as a peaceful international stabilizing force." Referring to 'the food shortage and unemployment situation in; Japan, Tojo warned that the first postwar year had demonstrated,' ' that 70,000,000 people could not' lead an "adequately self-contained existence" within Japan's bo'-rters. "This is one of the problems which must be solved somehow," he said. "A solution would partly be offered by the institution of free world trade" together with a high degree of development of what may bo allowed lo remain as Japanese industry."
