Waldman Avalon, as thou in peace wouldst lie, Villians should be made to pass thee by, And return to lands from whence they came, Leaving naught that could disgrace thy name, Or keep back from thee the people who Nothing but some worthy homage do, Fresh and sweet as drops of morning dew Are the dainty zephyrs floating through Idealistic scenes that cheer the man Reaching for the best in Nature's plan. Aqua-,tints have failed to show the charms Vested in thy hills and village farms; And, for thee, we'll beat a tuneful gong; Lift our hearts to God in joyful song, Or give praise to Him that thou hast won Notice--Avalon, Fair Avalon !

Inci- ently these observations indicate the radioactive content of the of the Pacific. "We have been making tests on Pike's Peake and at Pasadena to de- termine the penetratability of gamma rays present in the atmosphere," said Mr. Otis, as he operated his delicate electrical apparatus. "In order to do this we used 300 pounds of lead as an absorbing shield. In making our cal- culatioris it was necessary to know how much radiation was contributed by the lead shield. The way we have chosen to find out how much radiation is added by the lead is to emerse the apparatus and the lead in non-radio active material, namely, sea water, which itself will also act as an absorb- ing shield. The radiation which we measure then is that due to the lead alone. Incidentally, these observations give us an indication of the amount of radium suspended in sea water. We expect to complete our experiments about Thursday." Subscribe now--S2 per year. world--somewhere. We want to keep in touch with the C. L. T. C. members. Thank you.
