Dr. Maud Slye of the University of Chicago, above, soon will publish her conclusions regarding the inheritance of cancer based upon the breeding of 130,000 mice in the past 25 years. Engineer Vera S. Glebovskaya, at right, tests in Leningrad an inclinometer used to determine the incline of oil well shafts.
