Bacine 8tj fat bulletin May 17, 1959 Sec. 1, Page j j report red a smasher May have More Energy than any in us Washington a Russia is reportedly considering building an atom smasher having somewhat higher Energy than any now under constr Cdon or proposed in this countr. But scientists familiar with . Work said saturday the two mile posed Long device pro for construction by Stanford University though of lower Energy than the one envisioned by Russia would outstrip such a device in Overall Power. They said that when you re talking about the Power of atom smashers Energy As expressed in Electron volts is Only part of the Story. Consider intensity you also have to consider the intensity of the atom shattering beam of electrons or protons which the machine produces that is How Many particles pass a Given Point in a Given time. On the intensity score they say the proposed Stanford device would far outstrip the soviet concept even at proposed initial Power. Lion Electron volts Bev. That would be the highest Energy Ever obtained in an atom smasher. Initial plans in contrast the Stanford machine might eventually be operated at 45 Bev though initial plans Call for operation at Only 10 to 15 Bev. Even at this latter Energy Range scientists say the Stanford machine would be More powerful than the soviet one because it would be designed to have a beam intensity of 500,-000 Watts. By contrast the soviet machine would have a beam intensity of Only a few Watts. Moreover the proposed Stanford device is a linear accelerator which accelerates atom smashing bullets in a straight line. Most present atom smashers both in this country and in Russia Are of a circular Type called cyclotrons. A major advantage of the Senate House unit votes increase Over dec request Washington a a congressional subcommittee has recommended a big increase Over what the atomic Energy commission asked for atomic Energy projects next the total however is con they explain the situation Sider ably under this year s this Way i authorization for such Pur the soviets say they have i poses under study an idea for build ing a circular Type device whose Energy would be 50 Bil Calls Prince Philip a great clog Windsor England a across the sunlit Polo Field rang out a homely phrase of English abuse a o u great it came from comedian Jimmy Edwards whose voice is As vibrant As his Mustache is Broad. On the receiving end was Jimmy s teammate in a Polo match Prince Philip husband of Queen Elizabeth. The Duke in Jimmy s View had fluffed a simple shot. The Queen sitting in the bleachers with the crowd at the Windsor horse show laughed her head off. The Prince laughed too. Chairman Chet Holifield a Calif said the Senate House atomic Energy subcommittee s authorization for construction of atomic line facilities is $160,-350,000. That is an increase of $44,850,000 Over the dec request but $225,650,000 less than this year s authorization. Holifield said a saving of $67,500,000 was achieved by rescinding some. Previously authorized projects and modifying some dec requests. These included a Cut of $21 million for a Gas cooled Power reactor cancellation at dec s request of $17i/ million for a liquid Metal fuel reactor Experiment a Cut of $7 million in research and development funds for Euratom and a Cut of $20 million for the co operative Power reactor demonstration program. The increases added by the subcommittee to dec requests provided for some additional projects. Amounts included $18 million for a natural circulation test Plant for the naval reactor program $5 million for alterations to the Shippingport pa., Power Plant and funds to finance design studies for a nuclear propelled Ocean going Tanker. The subcommittee also added $6,850,000 for four physical research projects at the University of California radiation Laboratory Oak Ridge National Laboratory and Argonne National Laboratory. Another $1 million increase was recommended in construction to carry out additional research on radioactive fallout from nuclear weapons tests. The subcommittee added $11 million to the $39 million asked by the dec for Federal co operation in projects undertaken by private utilities co operatives and other non governmental industries. The authorization Bill is expected to be reviewed by the full atomic Energy committee within the next two weeks for final action. The actual Money will be voted later in a separate Bill. Linear Type is that you can extend the length indefinitely and thus go to higher and higher energies. All you need is snore Money. Circular Type meanwhile Russia has the world s largest operating accelerator a 10 Bev whopper of the circular Type. Russia s other known major operating device Are two circular machines one of 240 million Electron Volt Mev Energy the other 680 Mev. She has under construction a 2 Bev linear accelerator a 400 Mev linear one and also two additional ones of the circular Type with Energy ratings of 7 Bev and 600 Mev respectively. The . Has 15 accelerators in operation with energies above 200 Mev the largest being a 6.2 Bev circular machine. But it s building four other circular ones the largest of which will have Energy capabilities of from 25 to 30 Bev.
