Abortion: Legal Control

Abortion: Legal Control

Date: August 12, 1976
Creator: Hall, James
Description: The U.S. Supreme Court decisions in Roe v. Wade, 410 U.S. 112 (1973), and Doe v. Bolton, 410 U.S. 179, which held generally that a State could no longer prohibit abortions in the first 6 months of pregnancy, caused several House and Senate members to move for an abortion prohibition effectuated by congressional action. To this end, proposed bills and constitutional amendments have been introduced in both Houses. Rather than having settled the abortion question conclusively, the Supreme Court decisions have kindled a national protest movement.

Annual environmental monitoring summary, July 1975--June 1976

Date: October 29, 1976
Creator: unknown
Description: Monsanto Research Corporation operates Mound Laboratory, a government-owned facility of the U.S. Energy Research and Development Administration, at Miamisburg, Ohio. Mound Laboratory is an integrated, research, development, and production facility performing work in support of ERDA weapon and nonweapon programs with emphasis on explosive and nuclear technology. Mound Laboratory originated as a technical organization in 1943 when Monsanto Chemical Company was requested to accept responsibility for determining the chemical and metallurgical properties of polonium as a project of the Manhattan Engineering District. Work was carried on at Monsanto`s Central Research Department and several satellite units in the Dayton, Ohio area. Late in 1945, the Manhattan Engineering District determined that the research, development and production organization established by Monsanto at Dayton should become a permanent facility. A search for a suitable location in early 1946 led to the selection of a 180-acre tract adjacent to Miamisburg, about ten miles (16 km) south of Dayton. Construction of Mound Laboratory, which was named after the Miamisburg Indian Mound adjacent to the site, began in February 1947 and was completed in 1948. The new laboratory was the first permanent facility of the Atomic Energy Commission which had succeeded the Manhattan Engineering District.

Annual highlights report for 1975

Annual highlights report for 1975

Date: March 1, 1976
Creator: Flitcraft, R.K. & McClain, J.R.
Description: Mound`s work through the year centered on development, production, and surveillance of weapon components; development and assembly of plutonium-238 heat sources; production and sales of stable isotopes; separation of special radioisotopes; development of Safeguards procedures for nuclear materials control; and development of improved techniques for effluent control and waste management. Reductions in funding for certain programs led to reductions in the work force during the last half of the year. Year end employment was 1542, down 157 from January 1. Application of the Zero-Base Budgeting concept, particularly in the overhead areas, enabled the Laboratory to manage the funding reductions with minimal impact on vital services.

An approximate spin design criterion for monoplanes, 1 May 1939

An approximate spin design criterion for monoplanes, 1 May 1939

Date: January 1, 1976
Creator: Seidman, O. & Donlan, C. J.
Description: An approximate empirical criterion, based on the projected side area and the mass distribution of the airplane, was formulated. The British results were analyzed and applied to American designs. A simpler design criterion, based solely on the type and the dimensions of the tail, was developed; it is useful in a rapid estimation of whether a new design is likely to comply with the minimum requirements for safety in spinning.
