They were Gene Littler, the 1953

Great Scientist
Becomes Almost
Forgotten Man
l.'iilted I'reMt Stuff Correspondent
NEW YORK (L'Pl One of
the nation's foremost scientists has
become a forgotten man.
Five years ago, physicist Jo
siah Willard Gibbs the father of
modern chemical engineering,
was elected to New York Univer
sity's Hall of Fame of Great
Americans. There still is no bust
of him in the Hall of fame ro
tunda, and no one knows when
there will be.
Of the 83 Americans honored
with enshrinement in the rotunda
overlooking the Hudson River,
only Gibbs and Woodrow Wilson
are not represented by busts. But
plans have been under way lor
some time to install Wilson's like
ness next year, on the lOOtii birth
day of his birth.
Mrs. Bertha Lyons, curator of
the Hall of Fame, has been try
ing for months to raise the $9,000
needed to install a bust and
plaque honoring Gibbs. So far she
has promises of only about $1,200.
Gibbs, who devoted his entire
adult life to teaching and studying
at Yale University, is considered
by other scientists to be the found
er of the theory of thermodynam
ics the relation between heat
and energy.
His theory has been credited
with serving as the basis for the
major part of physical chemistry
and chemical engineering.
Raising Money Difficult
Gibbs died In 1903. Under Hall
of Fame rules, a person must be
dead 25 years before he can be
elected. The elections are held
every five yeai-s. Gibbs' name had
been put in nomination several
times before he finally was elect
ed in 1950, along with Wilson, Dr.
William C. Gorgas, Alexander
Graham Bell, Theodore Roosevelt
and Susan B. Anthony.
"Joslah Gibbs was one of the
greatest persons America has pro
duced In science," M r s. Lyons
said, "but I'm having a very diffi
cult time getting funds to honor
him In the rotunda.
"Yale has tried to help me and
has a small fund there. The Amer
ican Chemical Society has promis
ed to try to do something. It Is
strictly a question of money. Some
persons are harder to get money
for than others.
"It's strange how many people
there are in the Hull ot Fame
whose names are not familiar to
the general public, but you'd think
that if they get nominated and
elected, there would be enough
persons willing to contribute to a

battle between religious broad

Without making any open charg

stall six new powerful radio trans

its already mighty radio station.
The decision to install the new
transmitting station was reached
after numerous complaints had
been received by the Vatican re

The problem was discussed, and
it was decided that the radio sta

Work was started immediately
and the malaria - swept area was

ot the Arrone River. Once this
was completed, work on the new
station itself began under the di

He confessed to the plot some
five hours after he voluntarily ap

report that his car had been at

story yesterday morning had said
a "mystery car" had eluded police

glowing powder was on his hands.
He said he wanted the $10,000
because he was "out of money"
and had been having hard luck.
He said he had read of recent
bomb-threats and decided that ex

obtain the money.

It is trying to include provisions
which would keep Austria from be

It is Hying to include an article
wliich would permit it to get hold
of the Iron Curtain refugees now
being sheltered in Austria.
And naturally. It is hying also ta
extract the last possible dollar in
economic concessions from Austria
as the price of the treaty.
As the result, the negotiations
which started off so smoothly on
Monday have run into some snags.
It is probable that the disputed

Allies Still Optimistic
Nevertheless, Allied diplomatic
authorities seem convinced that the
Kremlin is ready at last to sign
the treaty restoring to Austria the
sovereignty which it lost when
Nazi Germany seized it in 1938.
It is reported that Secretary of
State John Foster Dulles hopes
the treaty may be signed in Vienna
around the middle of this month.
As has been pointed out, if Rus
sia does agree to an acceptable
treaty, it will be because of its
acute anxiety over the prospect of
West German rearmament.
Germans would be told that they.
too, could have a treaty and get
foreign occupation troops out of
their country if they would refuse
to rearm.
This appeal is strong. In th?
Vienna negotiations, the United
States, British and French dele
gates must not only oppose the
greediness of the Russians. They
must guard against over-eagerness
by the Austriuns themselves to
give the Russians concessions in
order to get rid of the destined Red

One snag in the Vienna negotia

Hungarians and Romanians.
These people have escaped from
Iron Curtain territory at risk! of
their lives. They are the fortunate
ones. Thousands of others have
been shot while trying to cross the
border or have been killed by land

Polio Group
California Medical Association has
blasted the National Foundation
for Infantile Paralysis for the
"contrived publicity" with which
i' announced the Salk vaccine.
The association's policy-making
council adopted a bitleily-woi-ded
resolution of condemnation last
lliifht at the close tf Ihe CMA's
; annual convention.
The resolution followed by a few
hours the action of the State De
partment of Public Health in set
ting up a system of priorities to
insure that all children up to and
including the age' of 14 receive
the vaccine. The ratings also in
cluded pregnant women.
Although the CMA resolution did
not mention the polio foundation
by name, there was no doubt that
the council was referring to this
organization. It said:
"Die council of the California
Medical Association disapproves
and condemns the method of an
nouncing the Salk antipoliomyelil
tis vaccine. It disapproves the con
trived publicity with which the
announcement was made and the
fact that there has not to date
been an opportunity for general
scientific discussion of the value of
the method.
it further disapproves non-pro
fessional agencies deciding the
time und the means of reportins
matters of a scientific nature and
it disapproves such agencies de.
ciding the measures which should
be employed in the further use of
medical materials or methods."
However, the CMA said Califor
nia physicians will continue to co
operate with federal, state and !
cal health officers "to safeguard
the health of our people and the
ultimate control of poliomyelitis."
It urged the National Research
Council, the country's top scien
tific research group, to "under
take an extensive study of every
phase of the manufacture and
testing of the vaccine."
It said that the use of the Salk
vaccine "must be left to the judg
ment of the individual physician."
