Dean Tells
Peacetime
Atom Uses
"We can be sure of one thing,
that the impact of nuclear ener-
gy is going to improve our stand-
ard of living."
Describing some of the econo-
mic, social, and scientific aspects
of peacetime atomic energy, Dean
Ralph Sawyer, of the Rackham
graduate school and Dr. Henry
J. Gomberg, assistant director of
Michigan Memorial Phoenix Pro-
ject, spoke before the Michigan
Education Association conference
yesterday.
Traces Development
Tracing the development of ato-
mic power, Dr. Sawyer pointed out
that before many years there will
be nuclear power plants that will
compete successfully with coal
power plants. However, electri-
city produced by nuclear fission
will cost more than ordinary elec-
tricity.
Predicting that by the end of
the century one half the power
used will be from nuclear fission,
Dr. Sawyer mentioned possible in-
dustrial changes.
Central heating plants in large
cities, utilizing atomic power,
could heat many homes with a
small amount of fuel. Lower
grade iron ore could be used in
steel production.
Scientific Uses
Emphasizing further scientific
uses of peacetime atomic power,
Dr. Gomberg said that "The ato-
mic energy reaction not only re-
leases energy in the form of heat
but also energy in the form of
radiation."
Using graphic and illustrative
slides, Dr. Gomberg described the
effects of atomic radiation on
chemical reactions, preserving
foods, disease control, straight
medical therapy and tracer re-
search.
Dr. Gomberg noted that before
food can be irradiated it must be
determined whether it will be safe
enough to eat after radiation. In
disease control, atomic radiation'
has been used to check diseases
caused by worm-like parasites.

NEW YORK (JP)-Week in and
ieek out, animals and motorists
iake more news than anybody.
But last week it was Fire Pre-
ention Week and things perver-
ely got extra hot for firemen
round the country.
Wakefield,/ Mass., firefighters'
rere really bulrned up. They had
demonstration all set with corn-
antes from five neighboring com-
iunities on hand. One by one
lie guest delegations had to leave
a attend to fires at home. It
nded with Wakefield doing a solo.
What made the firemen of Pros--
ect Park, N.J., smolder was their
wn fire house catching on fire.
In Louisville, Ky., firemen had
a extinguish a fire in a water
ountain.
But not even singed was a para-,

v
keet in Union, N.J. While admir-
ing himself in the shiny chrome
of a toaster he got too close and
dropped down the slot. After an
hour police dismantled the toast-
er. The bird was in good shape-
except for a few feathers he lost
not long ago when he flew through
a spinning fan.
Parking in front of a girls' dor-
mitory brought a University of
Nebraska student into Lincoln's
Municipal Court. A patrolman
testified the student only shook
his head when he was asked three
times to move his car. "I wasn't
shaking my head," said the stu-
dent. "I was kissing my girl."
The judge ruled kissing did not
involve a shaking movement and
assessed a $10 fine.

What young people are doing at General Electric

_ ec~we#9~@

Young engineer
pioneers in design
and sales of new
tiny transistors
The germanium transistor-some smaller
than the eraser end of a pencil and able to
operate on a few thousandths of a watt
-is probibly one of the most promising
developments in the electronics field today.
It opens the way to new midget radios, TV
sets flat enough to hang on a wall and many
other exciting possibilities.
One of the men who helped design and
perfect these tiny transistors-and the man
who is now head of sales for all General
Electric germanium products-is James H.
Sweeney, Manager-,Marketing, Semicon.
ductor Products Department.
Sweeney's Work Interesting, Vital
As early as 1948, Sweeney was head of a
group that studied the design and possible
uses of germanium products. He gained
national recognition for his work in devel-
oping and introducing these products to
other industries, and when a new Semi-
conductor Products Department was formed
in 1953, Sweeney was a natural choice for
the job of marketing these products.
25,000 College Graduates at General Electric
When Sweeney came to General Electric in
1941, he worked in many different depart.
