FEARS AMERICA MAY GET ARNOLD STEEL INVENTION London Daily Mail Reveals Discovery by Professor at Sheffield University Iximlon, Dec. IS. —The invention ot a new steel, far in advance of any high speed steel hitherto made, is ascribed by the Daily Mail to-day to John Oliver Arnold, professor of metallurgy at Sheffield University. The newspapers say that the Ameri can government is aware of Pro fessor Arnold's invention and is in vestigating it and that American metallurgists also arc working along lines similar to those of Professor Arnold. The Daily Mail indicates that Pro fessor Arnold uses molyodenum in stead of tungsten and says: "If large quantities of molybde num (a hard, silver-white, metallic element) can be found and the. price reduced, tungsten will take a back seat, because six per cent molybde num wilj achieve more than 18 i/r cent tungsten." Patents in America, Too Professor Arnold, says tne news paper, is prevented under the De fense of the Ttealm Act from utiliz ing his invention industrially. He is patenting his invention Ip England and America, and will be allowed to proceed with his American patent on condition that he publishes nothing concerning it. The Daily Mail says the govern ment has asked Professor Arnold whether he is willing to hand over his invention to the state and on what terms b.ut that Arnold does not intend to comply with the gov ernment's desire to secure it. A rep resentative of the American govern ment, the newspaper continues, made a special journey to Sheffield to investigate Professor Arnold's discovery ,and agents of the United States are prospecting in America and Europe for deposits of molybde num, which previously has been found chiefly in Canada. The Daily Mail, which asserts that Professor Arnold is "shackled" by government restrictions, expresses the fear that the United States will get ahead of Great Britain, on wTTat it terms an important discovery.
