be built at the University of Cali fornia with government money It will be a racetrack shaped magnet 110 feet in diameter which will whip atomic bullets around its course until they reach speeds exceeding 60000 miles a minute These speeds will give thorn strik ing force ranging from 6 billion to 10 billion volts Bombard Atoms With these bullets scientists Bombard atoms to produce mpsons which

was announced Monday night jointly by Dr Ern est O Lawrence cyclotron inven tor and David E Lilienthal chair man of the atomic energy commis sion The main part of the big ma bc a weighing 13000 tons 5

international agree ment on atomic energy control remain poor He described the present prospects as remote The new research colossus will be about 20 times as powerful as the universitys 4900 ton cyclo tron Doctor Lawrence said Produce Weak Mesons The 4900 tonner at present the worlds largest already has pro duced very weak mesons the first be made by man Previously mesons were known only in cos mic ray activity But some of the natural mesons have energies of billions of volts as against only 4000000 for the first ones made in the cyclotron This means Doctor Lawrence said that much more potent me sons wilt have to be made in the laboratories before nuclear energy can bc clearly understood Mesons are supposed to have something to do with the great force which holds protons and neutrons together to form the nu clei of atoms However they ap pear only in certain types of high energy atomic disintegrations What they do in an intact nucleus nwhether they even exist as such in a nucleus is unknown Jews Demand Action by UN on Palestine Lake S u c c e s h e Jewish agency Tuesday demanded firm action by the United Nations to halt an invasion of Palestine by regular armies of TransJordan and other Arab countries The agency also warned the U N that the Jews of Palestine themselves were making every possible preparation to meet the next phase of the onslaught with our own forces Gives Jewish Position The Jewish position was set forth by Moshe Shertok head of the Jewish agencys political de partment He spoke before the 58nation political committee of the U N special Palestine as semblj The U N trusteeship council met simultaneously in an effort to work out emergency police ma chinery to guard the holy places of Jerusalem against destruction Russia ended her yearlong bov cott of the council to take in the discussions After Francis B Savre of the United States council president welcomed Soviet Delegate Sem yon K Tsarapkin to the table a man arose in the audience and demanded the floor Gets Bums Rush He was hustled out by 2 uni formed U N guards crying Shame shame In the political committee Shertok said If TransJordan brings war to Palestine the British government will be responsible a n d if the whole issue is not placed on the agenda of this committee and of the security council then it can not be said that the United Na tion is dealing with the realities of the Palestine crisis Hint No U S Troops An American official hinted Tuesday that the United Stales will not send troops to help policp Palestine unless all or most of the warfare in the Holy Land is halted The official a responsible mem ber of the American delegation to the United Nations refused to elaborate and official confirma tion his statement was lacking But if such became the announced policy of the United States it would have farreaching conse quences on the current UN debate over Palestine It probably would leave Arabs and Jews to fight to a finish their battle for Palestine unless their leaders agreed to o truce So far both sides have ignored a security council order to cease fire The UN official implied that the United States would help to po lice Palestine during a truce but not to enter organized combat against Arabs or Jews Railroad Unions Expected to Stop Wage Negotiations Chicago represen tatives resumed negotiations with lie nations
