The jaws of a 7,000-ton Carnegie-Illinois forging press are squeezing this huge steel ingot into a pole piece of an 1,100-ton magnet for the second largest cyclotron in the U. S. Designed to produce particles of more than 200,000,000 electron volts, the atom smasher is being built at the University of Rochester as part of the Navy’s radiation research program.

YOU have left the outskirts of town and are rolling on the highway, the speedometer comfortably short of 50. Your car is fresh-tuned for spring; tires are newish, brakes sharp; there is not a squeak or rattle to spoil the purr of the engine. Suddenly, a car comes toward you.

ALREADY overworked electrons have taken on still another job. The Cathotrol, a new compass, uses the magnetic deflection of an electron beam to tell direction. Developed by the Minneapolis-Honeywell Regulator Co. for aircraft and ship navigation, it is essentially a flashlight-size cathoderay tube (at left, below) suspended face down from a universal joint.

GEORGE H. WALTZ
SCIENCE is working from A to Z in its war against disease-carrying pests. A few years ago DDT made its debut as a sure-fire pest weapon for home use. Now a new one—ANTU—has been added to the alphabetical arsenal. ANTU is to rats what DDT is to insects— a powerful, quick-acting, one-shot poison that is easy to use.

ON April 11 the United States Navy celebrates Submarine Day, in honor of all American submariners and especially the 55,000 who helped win World War II. Even while the nation pays tribute to the undersea fighters’ past exploits, however, Navy strategists are studying plans for their future —in a submarine fleet comprising at least six different types of ships that can carry out all the missions of Atom Age warfare while escaping most of its perils.

At one end, tabs on three edges are bent into a U-shape to receive the slides, and at the other tabs on all four edges are formed into clips to hold the lens.

WOULD you like to save that prize catch as proof of your favorite fish story? You can easily mount it on a plaque to confound all doubters. By a new method using a plaster of Paris core, the old tedious carving of a balsa-wood form for the skin is dispensed with entirely, and actual worktime on the job is cut from seven hours to 30 minutes.

EXPERIMENTS conducted at Michigan State College hold a promise that fruit growers and truck farmers eventually may be able to use radiant heat to prevent frost damage. In the tests, a huge oil burner and an electrical unit both were successfully employed to direct radiant heat on the vegetation and keep it above the frost point without using the air itself as the medium of heat transfer.

WHEN Russell Jackson, of Angola, Inch, expanded his home workshop for the production of instrument cases, he built this drum gluing machine to speed the job. A 5-qt. stainless-steel glue tank is flanged so it can be set into a 6" by 8" by 17" sheet-brass casing with 1¼" clearance all around.

WHEN an informal garden or a lawn requires terracing, concrete stairs connecting the various levels are frequently too formal to carry out the landscaping scheme. The set of stairs shown here has a charm of unconventionality that is impossible to attain with cement or bricks.

HAVE you ever wondered if you were getting the ingredients you paid for in your packaged foods, cosmetics, and medicines? The chances are that most of them, at least, contain just what is claimed, for the Food and Drug Administration of the Federal Government keeps a close check and, besides, no reputable manufacturer would care to risk loss of good will for the sake of unfair profit.
