Abortion: Legal Control

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.

The Electroslag Melting Process

Description: "This Bulletin traces the development of the electroslag melting process from its modest beginnings to the present. Important basic mechanisms such as electrochemistry, thermochemistry, and heat transport are described. Since the choice of flux is a unique parameter in the electroslag process, two chapters are developed to this subject. Electroslag melting experience for reactive metals, base metals, ferrous alloys, superalloys, and the refractory metals, both inside and outside the Bureau of Mines, is outlined" (p. xi).
