New Baby Ray
Is Diseovered
In California
Scientists Claim Ray To
Be More Pe ne t ra tinga
Than Radium
BERKELEY, Calif., Jan. 17. - (P)
- A baby ray, which is more pene-
trating than either X-rays or radium,
offers new fields for medical and sci-
entific exploration at the University
of California.
The ray is a stream of spray of
neutrons, recently discovered "ulti-
mate" particles of matter. Neutrons
emerge from the nuclei of atoms
when they are smashed by tremen-
dous energies.
These neutrons cast some doubt
on the hypothesis that the ultimate
building blocks of all matter fare
wholly bits of electricity, for neu-
trons have no electrical charge. To fit
present knowledge they would have
to be either a combination of posi-
tive and negative electricity, or the
unheard of thing,neutral electricity,
or something new in science.
The new ray is a stream of 10,-
000,000 neutrons a second. It is pro-
duced with the aid of an 85-ton mag-
net and a whirling motion equivalent
to 3,000,000 volts of electricity in the
laboratory of Prof. E. 0. Lawrence
and Dr. M. Stanley Livingston. This
is the first time these particles have
been brought outside of the vacuum
tubes where they originate.
Ten million a second neutrons is
about equivalent to the energy of
about a milligram of radium. It
equals the intensity of a weak X-ray.
But except for its penetrating power,
this neutron ray is different in. ac-
tion than the others.
X-rays break up atoms mainly by
knocking off their electrons, leaving
the nucleus usually untouched and
capable of recovery. Radium rays of
the highest powers can break the
nuclei themselves. But neutrons, more
than any other type of energy yet
discovered, directly attack atomic
nuclei and disrupt them completely.
The best defense against neutron
rays is not lead but the lightest ele-
ment of all, Hydrogen. Neutrons pen-
etrate several inches of lead. In hy-
drogen they make more frequent col-
lisions with the atomic nuclei and so
are stopped more quickly. But they
are so much superior to X-rays and
radium in penetration that even in
hydrogen they go farther.
Because they penetrate more read-
ily the possibility is indicated that
the neutrons will not be handicapped
by the surface burning which limits
the amount of X-rays and radium
used for growths deep in the body,
such as cancer.
It is thought also that the body,
being largely water, which contains
large amounts of hydrogen, will react
to neutrons much the same as to hy-

Scientists nvestigate
Canadian 'Brown Snow'
(By Intercollegiate Press)
MONTREAL, Jan. 17. - Scientists
at McGill University, after. studying
the "brown snow" which fell on this
city Dec. 16 and. 17, have concluded
that the snow was mixed with vol-
canic ash which dropped from the
upper atmosophere.
Nine-tenths of the substance, it
was found, was made up of quartz,
feldspar and mica.
The scientists estimated that about
two tons of the dust to the square
mile fell on the city and surrounding
countryside.
"Doctors bury their mistakes; I
make mine into saugage," stated
Professor Brancioni after he discov-
ered that Louisiana State University's
prize-winning Poland China sow was
butchered by mistake by the meat-
cutting glass.
drogen. This implies that the neu-
trons would act like a surgeon's knife.
But there are also experiments indi-
eating that the practical effects of
this neutron "knife" will be very little
if at all different from the action of
X-rays.
