Globe-Gazette (Newspaper) - December 3, 1964, Mason City, Iowa A light in your stomach Possible with a new system By EARL UBELL New York News Service NEW YORKScientists now can tie a light beam into a knot and shove it down the throat of an ulcer victim so pic tures can be taken These are but a couple of tricks coming out of an incredi ble new technology called glass fiber optics A bundle of these glass fibers fiber as smalt as of an inch in take light around corners like water in a garden hose The fibers work on a princi ple called total internal reflec tion Youve seen the effect in 8 waterfilled fish tank Viewed from the bottom and at an angle the surface of the water is a totally reflecting mirror If your eye gets directly under the surface the mirror effect van ishes The mirror depends on the fact that light will bend at the boundary between two light transmitting substances If the angle at which the light hits the boundary is shallow enough the light will be totally reflected The effect occurs with glass and air or two types of glass bonded to each other If you draw glass into a fiber light can enter the end of the fiber only from shallow angles Light en tering at steep angle passes out through the boundary As the light travels down the fiber it is mirrored back and forth from the walls like a bil liard ball ricocheting down a long pool table In a single fiber 50 feet long a light ray can bounce back and forth a quarter of a million times Even if you bend the fiber the internal reflections still guide the light beam along However a single fiber picks up only one spot of light as big as its aper ture To conduct light from a larger scene you put the fibers together in a bundle Each fiber picks up one spot The applications now are ob vious The American Cystoscope Co has created a fiber optics device for looking into the stom ach Recently Dr Walter Gamble of Boston Childrens Hospital took moving pictures of the in side of a dogs heart with a fiber optics system developed by Robert Innes and his col leagues at the American Optical Co Dr Gamble snaked the fiber bundle into a blood vessel in the thigh up into the aorta through the heart valve and into the heart chambers Next step To v i e w defects in childrens hearts Other medical applications on the horizon include a combina tion of fiber optics and lasers A laser is a device for creating a special kind of onecolor light that has the power to heat a single spot to a million degrees By putting a fiber bundle into the stomach for example it may be possible to cauterize a wound by sending laser light to the spot At the Illinois Institute of Technology scientists have de veloped a fiber optics hypoder mic syringe Injected under the skin it permits doctors to view living tissue via a microscope American Optical Co scientists have measured the oxygen con tent of blood near the heart Dr Narinder S Kapany of Optical Technology Inc Calif has measured blood flow In space flight fiber optics collapses massive optical sys tems into compact packages Although most of the applica tions are secret it is quite ob vious that a fiber bundle can lead light from a camera lo cated in one part of a satellite to another without lenses or prisms A fiber periscope can peek into fuel tanks and rocket engines Dr Kapany and others see the possibility of using such lasers in computers to make calculations In principle fiber opticlasers computing elements would be smaller than electronic ones and possibly much faster North Iowa Weather outlook Cloudy through Friday with occasional light snow Thurs day night slightly colder Lows Thursday night 412 Highs Friday 1522 SEVILLA Spain AP Juan D Perou resumed his exile in Spain Thursday after a brief and unsuccessful attempt to re establish himself in South Amer ica for return to Argentina the nation that cast off his dictator ship in 1955 Brazil blocked Perons plan and shipped him back on the same Iberia DCS jet airliner that carried him from Madrid to Rio de Janeiro Wednesday The reaction of the Spanish Peron booted out of Brazil Resumes exile in Sp S n T TA A D T j am government was uncertain Per ons backtoArgentina cam paign could be interpreted as a violation of one of the terms of his asylum a pledge to avoid political activity But officials in Madrid said they understood he would be allowed to remain temporarily until a definite decision is reached Whatever the outcome Span ish authorities seemed to be shielding Peron from public at tention The airliner that carried Per on back across the Atlantic scheduled for Madrid was di verted en route to Sevilla 250 miles southwest of the capital Informed sources said the Spanish government ordered the diversion to keep Peron away from more than 100 newsmen Spanish and foreign waiting for him at the Madrid Airport Peron 69 got off in Sevilla and drove in a black limousine to a hotel the Andalucia The citys police chief was reported to have accompanied him Police barred newsmen from the hotel There was speculation that after a few days in Sevilla Per on would drive to the residence he has maintained in Madrid It was to Sevilla that Peron came when he flew to Spain from ex ile in Panama in January 1960 The Brazilian government said in a communique Complying with the request of Argentina the Brazilian govern ment agreed to halt in Rio de Janeiro the trip which Mr Juan Domingo Peron was making The Uruguayan government also announced that Peron would not be allowed to land in Montevideo where he had planned to catch a plane to Par aguay Sources close to Presi dent Alfredo Stroessner of Para guay said Peron would not be allowed to land there either Peron had promised to return this year to Argentina where an estimated 20 to 30 per cent of the nations 10 million voters still support him The Brazilian government de tained Peron from the moment of his arrival until he took off Wednesday night Peron spent the day at the military section of the Galeao International Air port A Brazilian air force officer said Peron talked very little hut appeared well disposed He was unsmiling as he started back to Europe Peron reportedly asked the Brazilian government for asy lum If he did his forced de ture showed that Brazilian President Humberto CasteHo Branco rejected the request Peron had been told before his attempted return that no country in his former South American homeland would al low him to come back PERON The newspaper that mak Home Edition VOL 104 MASON CITY IOWA THURSDAY DECEMBER 3 1964 UOc a Paper

establishing a sta ble government in South Viet Nam The second involved North Viet Nams continuing efforts 0 strengthen and support the Communist insurgency in South Viet Nam Taylor who is under instruc tions from Johnson to consult urgently with the South Viet Nam government said his talks with Premier Tran Van Huongs government will be across the board When asked if there had been discussion of bombing supply routes by which North Viet Nam has aided the Communist guer rillas Taylor said We talked about all aspects of the situation you can think of We fee there are measures we can take to give more effec tive help to South Viet Nam and there are steps that they can take as well Taylor said Johnson accompanied Taylor to thc White House lobby and him with a blue copy of
