Scientists Finally Find Long-Sought "Ghost" Particle Inside Atom
This piece is talking about is the Cowan–Reines neutrino experiment which  garnered a Nobel prize in 1995. It’s almost right. Neutrinos have zero electric charge, not practically none. They’re called neutrinos because they are electrically neutral. It means little neutral ones. There are actually three different types and although it was not proven until the […]

Save $100 on your NEXT VACATION
By Ron and Marion Anderson STOP FOR THE NIGHT when and where you wish, and at the same time stretch your vacation budget, by building a bed right into your car. We did it, and now find that vacation costs average $100 less because the cost of sleeping accommodations is cut down. We never have to wire ahead for reservations and there is no more stopping in the middle of the afternoon in order to secure accommodations for the night. Figures issued by some of the state tourist bureaus show that more and more people are making their homes for the night wherever they park their cars.

It's Raining Baby Trout
By Claude M. Kreider LAST SUMMER almost 3,000,000 baby trout "rained down" over 662 blue lakes in California's lofty Sierras. This was not a miracle of nature brought about by the storm clouds hovering over the high peaks. It was a manmade phenomenon, the result of a long experiment in modern trout culture and the planting of fish by airplane. For many years Sierra lakes, barren of fish life, and other lakes heavily fished, were stocked with trout by the use of pack mules, each carrying two 10-gallon cans of baby fish. Many were lost in transport, others injured. The packers had to stop often along the rough trails to replenish the water in the cans and thus provide the necessary oxygen to keep the fish alive. Often there was no trail, even for the sure-footed mules, and the men had to complete the journey carrying the cans upon their backs. Several days were often required for one journey. And the cost was prohibitive, averaging almost $20 per thousand trout.

Tools can’t talk back, and maybe it’s just as well. However, mute as they are, tools make fine animal crackers if they’re […]

C.—have similar ideas about giving the wheel-chair patient more mobility. The Danish invention is an electric stair-climbing chair. Three small wheels connected by a vee belt rotate around each end of the axle. […]
Behind the Split Screens of TV
By Jan and Bob Jensen IF MR. KIPLING had been sitting in the gilt-edged Hollywood audience that March evening in 1954 when the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences presented the Oscars in their 26th annual awards ceremony, he would have had to eat his words that "East is East and West is West and never the twain shall meet." They not only met, they talked to each other. On the large television-projection screen at the back of the golden bronze-draped stage, Donald O'Connor, master of ceremonies on the West Coast, was brought face to face with Fredric March on the East Coast, and the many thousands of miles lying between their respective noses had been eradicated by the magic of the communications era in which they live, so that the two were presented in one picture not only to the select audience of 2800 in the Pantages Theater in Hollywood, but to millions of TV viewers throughout the nation.
