ATOMIC SUPERPOWER PLANT MAY SOON BREAK UP ATOMS New Discovery Speeds Up Hydrogen Par ticles to Be Used as Bullets to Bombard Tiny Bits of Other Elements.' By the Associated Press. BERKELEY, Calif., September 19 A new kind of atomic superpower plant was reported to the National Academy of Sciences today. It proposes to speed up atomic hydro gen particles to about 37,000 miles a second, so they can be used, as bullets to bombard and possibly break the atoms of other elements. Breaking atoms is one long-sought route to transmutation, and also to “unlocking Last Sensational Day of Value-Giving Climax the Celebration of Barbara Stone’s p. FIRST BIRTH DAY J.

SEPTEMBER 19, 1930 the power of the atom,” which means to find out whether breaking up atoms will release a lot of power that can be set to work running machinery. The apparatus is a University of Cali fornia product, still incomplete, but re ported because of Its great scientific interest. It is under development by Dr. Ernest D. Lawrence, associate pro fessor of physics, and N. E. Edlefsen. The device is an excursion by a new route into the long-sought atomic power I field. Other methods have required ex ! pensive, heavy equipment and high . power. Dr. Lawrence’s machine could be set on a chair and used with little power. It combines an alternating current of electricity and magnetism to set the nuclei, or central masses, of hydrogen ’ atoms to whirling in widening circles at constantly increased speed until finally they are shot out of the tube like a particle flicked from the tip of a cracking whip. Their speed is equiv alent to the energy produced by a ■ million-volt X-ray tube, which is far | greater than any ray power yet avail i able. The significance of the 37,000-mile 1 speed may be understood in comparison with the “rays” of radium, part of which are atomic particles traveling about 12.000 miles a second. Scientists have shot these radium particles into : gases and knocked out small pieces of atoms, but lacked enough speed to break up entire atoms to any extent. What speeds of atomic bullets are needed to break up atoms and put to practical test the transmutation and 1 power production theories are not known, but. Dr. Lawrence said, "At the speeds predicted we are getting into regions where interesting things are likely to haopen." The principle of identity, a new scientific mode of study to solve some of the paradoxes of modern physics was explained by Dr. Gilbert N. Lewis of j the University of California, world famous as a leader of scientific thought. | It promises information about the nuclei of atoms. In recent years scien tists have learned atoms are composed of electrons surrounding a central mass. This mass is the nucleus and has most ly defied analysis. L. M. Reichert of Stanford Medical School told of transplanting success fully 50 amputated legs. The experi ments show methods of preventing gangrene. Discovery of a hitherto unknown nerve food property in fats, attracted much comment. Dr. Herbert M. Evans, who found it, was the discoverer of vitamin Ea few years ago. Certain parts of fats which seem to be rich In the new nutritive substance have been isolated, but the substance ' itself has not been identified.

WOMANLESS LIBRARY LEFT BY FOE OF SEX Estate to Grow Into $3,000,000 Will Be Used. With Notice on Doot That They Are Barred. i * By the Assoc is ted Press. I LEMARS, lowa. September 19—A 83 - 000,000 “womanless library” 75 years hence will form the tangible reminder of a lawyer's objection to feminine j championship. The library will be known as the “Zink Womanless Library.” as a me morial to the donor, T. M. Zink, 73. a lawyer, who died last week. His will, filed here, provides that his estate, val ued at between $40,000 and SBO,OOO, is to go into a trust fund for 75 years. At i j the end of that time, the accumulated i Interest, the will says, will have increas- ; led the estate to approximately $3,000 - 000, which is to be used for building the ! library. The words. "No Woman Emitted" must be cut in stone over the me In en -1 trances of the library; only bnptcs by men will be allowed; magazines will be censored to eliminate articles by women. Nothing in the design, decoration or ap pointments of the library must suggest feminine influence, the will provides. Zink's will says that his hatred for women came from his study of philoso phy, history and science and his own experience. , The will left Sft to his daughter. Mr*. Margretta Becker, and provided that his widow is to have the use of the house as long as she wants it for S4O a 4 month rent. Fire Destroys Peat Moss.
