At Hutchins
WASHINGTON (UP) Rep. B
Carroll Recce (R-Tenn.) accused
Dr. Robert M. Hutchins and' tax
free foundations Wednesday of'ud
opting Communist tactics in trying
to "smear and slander" Recce's
congressional Investigation of foun
dations last year. .
Hutchins, president of Ihc Ford
financed Fund for the Republic.
told the National Press Club Inst
month that Recce's report accus
ing foundations of promoting so
cialistic ideas was a "wild and
squalid'' attack.
Recce, In a speech prepared for
the club today, replied that "this
language of Dr. Hutchins is typi
cal of the vituperation which has
been poured on us by the profes-
sionnl operators of foundations."
"Realizing . the Impossibility of
controverting the massive evidence
which we produce," ho said, "they
have resorted to smear and sland
er."
"You know, these planners, of
whom Dr. Hutchins is an outstand
ing example, have cleverly adopt
ed a Communist tactic," Reece
said. "Communists charge that the
, rest of the world is 'aggressive.'
t "Similarly, these planners ac-
, cuse the committee on foundations
of wishing to suppress freedom of
thought," Reece said. "The fact Is
' that the intellectual cartel which
they have created Itself suppresses
freedom of thought by expending
millions of foundation money un
der their control lo determine op
Inion, academic and public, in the
lettish directions tbey favor.
Reece said the foundations
through subsidies to educators, ex
ercise virtual control over what
ilrection education takes and "this
power to Impose brainwashing at
Hie key points is against every
Hiing America stands" for."

Cousin Finds
Lost Pencil
MEMPHIS, Tenn. (UP)-Sev-
eral years ago, Sam Barrett found
an automatic pencil on the floor
of a hotel here.
Several months later, he noticed
that engraved on the band was the
name Clarence W. Barrett the
same as that of a cousin he hadn't
seen for 50 years and with whom
he lost contact.
The other day, while visiting his
mother at Canton, Miss., he an
swered a knock at the door and
there was his cousin, Clarence,
standing outside. Clarence had
stopped to visit Mrs. Barrett on
his wav to Louisiana.
Sam pulled out the pencil, and
Clarence told him it was his.
Clarence said he had been In
Memphis for a short visit, had lost
the pencil in the hotel and had
searched unsuccessfully for It.
Deer Bia Menace
OnNXThruway
SYRACUSE, N. Y. (UP) New
York's billion-dollar Thruwny. the
safest in the world, would be twice
as safe it It weren't for the deer.
Those sleek brown-eyed animals
cause more than nan we acci
dents on the highway. In the Thru-
way's first six months, at least
132 care smashed into them.
Dozens of persons have been
hurt and at least one man was
killed by these collisions. One mo
torist told a typical Story:
"I slammed on the brakes but
I hit the deer head-on. The ani
mal bounded about 25 feet ahead
of me. My car was thrown over
in the left lane, sideways.
I drove off the highway, but
before I pulled Ihc deer away an-
ither car had hit it. II swerved,
arcened, and then straightened
up.
What gives insurance companies
gray hairs about all this is n de
cision of the state's court of
claims, saying that a motorist Is
liable for damages if he hits a
deer. '
New York state doesn't quite
know what to do. The cost of
fences along the 427-mile Thruwny,
it says, would be astronomical.

is joining the search for the na
tion's Four Outstanding Young
Farmers, it has been announced.
A total of 2750 Jaycee chapters
throughout the United States, Ha
waii, and Alaska will aid in the
competition.
.Heading the elimination to select
this area's top young farmer will

have to be a Jaycee, President
Gerald Eby explained.
Contributions made to farming
and the community, with special
emphasis on farm enterprise and
investment, will be the basis for
judging. A panel of area agricul
ture leaders will serve as judges.
The Jefferson county winner will
receive an award from the local
group.
Winner of the area contest will
be entered in the state - wide con
test which will name the top young
Oregon farmer not later than April
27, 1955. The slate champ will
have an expense paid trip to Min
neapolis, Minnesota, June 1-3, for
the national finals.
The program is being sponsored

jiDiamond-Makingj
Process Revealed
By U.S. Company
By DELOS SMITH
I lilted I'rrss Science Editor
SCHENECTADY, N Y. (UP) -
Men are making diamonds. Up to
now only nature has made them.
General Electric opened its scien
tific research laboratories recently
to display diamond-making by its
scientists who started from scratch
and duplicated nature's hardest
most cherished material.
They were not imitation dia
monds, said Dr. C. Guy Suits, vice-
president and director of research.
Nor were they merely like dia
monds. They were diamonds pre
cisely identical with the diamonds
made by nature.
The first man made diamonds
are of size and quality suitable only
for industrial use. The cost of mak
ing them was approximately twice
today's market price for Indus
trial diamonds.
General Electric Excited
The discovery of the "how-to"
of diamond making, which many
scientists had believed was a sec
ret of nature man might never un
lock, seemed to have vast GE in
a tizzy. After all, the company s
primary business is manufactur
ing electric equipment.
Dr. Suits wouldn t deny the ob
vious implications which were:
(1) If man can make diamonds
at all, he surely can learn to make
diamonds which are as flawless,
beautiful and big as any made by
nature.
(2) If the laboratory cost of the
first man made industrial dia
monds is only twice the market
selling price of nature made indus
trial diamonds, the eventual cost of
man made diamonds will be dras
tically lower. ,
Can B Used Industrially
All he would say was that "any
conclusion we are about to make
diamonds of a size and quality
suitable for gem use is decidedly
premature.
On the other hand, if present
high cost of making diamonds by
the G-E processes can be reduced,
the primary application of man
made diamonds will probably be in
industrial tools for cutting and pol
ishing."
GE's discovery of the diamond
how-to" began with a routine in
vestigation four years ago by Drs.
Francis P. Bundy, II. Tracy Hall,
Herbert M. Strong, and Robert
Wenlorf,
The chemical ingredients of the
diamond are well known. Chemi
cally diamonds are identical to
graphite and charcoal. But some
how nature managed to crystalize
these ingredients into the hardest
and most beautiful substance con
tained in the earth.
The GE "team" of scientists de
veloped two techniques for making
diamonds. Dr. Bundy subjected a
compound of carbons to a pressure
800,000 pounds to the square inch,
which is about 53,500 times the
pressure of the atmosphere at sea
level, for hours. He used the lab
oratory's 1000-ton press. That made
the compound a solid and the core
of this solid was so very hard it
would scratch anything. Dcfeinile-
ly it was a diamond.
Dr. Hall took over from there.
He designed a chamber, which he
called the "liell" in which a pres
sure of more thaii 1 1-2 killion
pounds to the squnre inch and a
temperature of more than 5000 de
grees (fahrenheit) could be main
tained. The "carbonaceous com
pound" solidified in this chamber
in minutes, and the solid yielded
diamonds not In ones or twos hut
in clusters.
The man-made diamonds passed
every test of the diamond. Nothing
can scratch them except another
diamond but they can scratch a
nature-made diamond. X-rays act
in their crystal, just as they act In
the crystal of nature-made dia
monds, and this is considered the
ultimate test. And they display the
variations In color and clarity and
rrystnl qualities of natural dia
monds. NO HANDICAP

Pest Spreading

GENEVA, N. Y. (UP) The
European chafer, a soil-inhabit

age to lawns, golf courses parks,
cemeteries and pastures, is

State. A member of the May beetle or

Crossing Due
AKRON, O. (UP) The old-

ing has disappeared in one place
here, and developers of a newer
and smoother type predict it soon
will .vanish throughout the coun-
try.
The new arid smooth crossing is
made of rubber the first such
in the world. It is so arranged
that an automobile crosses level
with the tracks and can barely
feel it when it goes over them.
Slabs of rubber form the road
way. They are a little over three
inches thick, including a sand
wiched sheet of heavy gauge steel.
The roadway rests on heavy
treated wood planking lai don top
of each railroad tie. Each slab is
fastened down by 12-inch screws.
The slabs are sprung into place.
They have tapered flanges where
they meet the rails and thus form
watertight joint to keep water
from seeping through.

Rugged Affairs

United Press Staff CorreKpondent
. VIENNA (UP) Driving li
cense tests here are reputed to be
the world's stiffest. Besides prov
ing you can drive, you have to
know how to take a car apart
and put it together.
Moreover, you must pass a col
lege type of test in traffic law and
undergo a complete physical ex
amination. The tests are so tough that few
Viennese try1 for a license with
out graduating first from an ap
proved driving school. Scores of
schools have mushroomed as post
war traffic has increased, and new
comers to Vienna are astonished
at the number of cars bearing
"Traffic Academy" signs.
Applicants are a3vised to com
plete 15 driving lessons plus
their homework before, trying
to solo. Such a course costs about
$50. No one is admitted to the
exams without proof he has been
to a licensed schol or had private
training with a learners permit.
Three oral tests are conducted
by three different examiners.
Many Fall
If you pass the examiner on Aus
trian traffic low, you move on to
an engineering examiner who
tefts your knowledge of how an
automobile works and how to re
pair any kind of breakdown. Test
headings, include "engine,"
"carburetor" and "tire structure."
The third part of the oral covers

tions" what to do when your

dicaments. "If at any time during the ex
amination the candidate Is found
wanting, the Jests are stopped and
he must repeat the whole exami
nation, including those parts he
had already passed," applicants
are warned.
The physical examination Is ap
proximately the same as that re
quired for life insurance.
The final hurdle, the driving test
itself, includes starting, turning.
fast braking, passing and park
ing drills in the city's narrow
streets with an official tester call
ing the signals.
Officials say the percentage of
failures among student drivers is
far greater than at Austrian pub
lic schools and universities. -
