Professor Foust Declares Gas
Warfare is Hiaae, Effective

Gas warfare-yet to be used to any
great extent in the present war-is
one of the most humane instruments
of modern warefare, a University
chemical engineering professor said
Prof. A. S. Foust, who is also a cap-
tain in the Chemical Warfare Service
Reserve, believes that chemicals have
played a minor role so far only be-
cause "each side is afraid of the

led from the standpoint of perman-
ent injury by gas," he asserted. "Mus-
tard gas burns, for example, are
severely painful for only 24 hours or
so. However, the victim must be
hospitalized for from one to six weeks,
and must be treated for his burns
during that time, making him a
greater liability to the enemy than if
he had been killed outright.",-
As fast as a new chemical agent
is developed, Professor Foust said, a
protective device is found to be used
against it. Since the World War thef
Chemical Warfare Service has worked!
only on protective devices, and not
on new gases.
British May Use Gas
Poisonous gases are classified as
persistent or non-persistent, depend-
ing on their tendency to remain where
they are released. Persistent gases
are invaluable assets to a defending*
force, and the British will undoubt-
edly use some form of persistent gas,I
probably mustard, if the Nazis invade
Three different effects may be ob-
tained from the use of gas, Professor
Foust pointed out. "Lung irritants
affect the respiratory system, vesi-
cants are the skin irritants, and gen-
eral irritants, such as tear gas, are
used to decrease physical effective-
ness, or for their depressive psycho-
logical effect."
Classified according to purpose,
chemicals are listed as casualty pro-
ducing, harassing, screening and in-
cendiary. In the present fighting
only the screening (smoke bombs)
and incendiary types have found any
great use so far.
Mustard Most Persistent
Mustard gas is still the outstand-
ing persistent gas, as it will remain
in the vicinity for several days -or
even weeks or months, depending on
the weather. Cheap and easy to
manufacture as gases go, it smells
like garlic, and produces burns simi-
lar to fire burns.
A new "Lewisite" gas developed at°
the close of the last war resembles
mustard very closely and may find
some 'use in this conflict if gas war-
fare is adopted. Like mustard and
most 'of the other persistent agents,
it is really not a gas but a heavy, oily
liquid at ordinary temperatures, and+
slowly evapoartes.
First of the war gases and most im-
portant of the non-persistent gases
in the last war, chlorine is fast be-
ing replaced by phosgene now, Pro-
fessor Foust explained, because the
latter is a good deal more poisonous
than chlorine.
Although hydrogen cyanide is one
of the most poisonous gases known, it
cannot be used in warfare because it
decomposes upon the explosion of
its carrier shell, and is lighter than
air. To be effective, war gases must
cling close to the ground, Professor
Foust concluded.

Cratford Returns
From Testifyig
To Federal GOoup
Dean Ivan C. Crawford of the Col-
lege of Engineering' returned to cam-
pus yesterday from a trip to Wash-
ington, D.C., where he appeared be-
fore a Congressional committee in-
vestigating the possibility of estab-
lishing experimental stations in the
United States.
Expected to go before Congress be-
fore tle close of the present session,
the bill would provide for the estab-
lishment of an experimental station in
each of the 48 states and in the terri-
tories as well, Dean Crawford said.
The committee investigating the
proposal is hearing the opinions of
prominent engineering men this week,
preparatory to sending the bill to
Congress'for a vote.
If the plan goes through, it will
be a big boost for engineering and
hence national defense, Dean Craw-
ford predicted.
