[The audience for the debate]

Description: Photograph of the audience for the debate. The photo depicts a row of people in the audience. In the foreground are three women then there is a young child bent over with his elbow presumably on his knees while his hands folded and two of his fingers pointing up at his nose. Next to the child is three men all looking toward the debate. In the background, there is a cameraman sitting in a seat that is lifted into the air. The cameraman is looking through the viewer of the camera.

[Bob Stanley with Sophomore Reporting Class]

Description: Photograph of Bob Stanley, professor in the Journalism Department, sitting with sophomore students in a reporting class in 1961. In the image Stanley and two of the students are reading individually, while one is looking at what Stanley is reading. Stacks of newspapers can be seen in the foreground, more students are sitting at individual desks behind the central group. A bulletin covered with newspaper scraps fills the back wall.

The Boron-Carbon System. Quarterly Report No. 3, November 1, 1960-January 31, 1961

Description: A definitive investigation of the boron-carbon equilibrium system is being made by x-ray diffraction, metallographic, and thermal analytical techniques. On the basis of metallogaphic and x-ray-diffraction studies it is concluded that boron carbide has a range of solubility from approximately 10 to 20 at.% carbon at 1500 to 2000 deg C. The melting point of the carbide-graphite eutectic was established as 2325 to 2350 deg C. No reversible allotropy of the beta -rhombohedral structure was observed. The solubility of carbon in boron is very small. The melting point of dilute carbon alloys is found to be essentially the same as that of pure boron (2040 to 2050 deg C). No metallogaphic evidence of a three-phase reaction of dilute alloys is observed. (auth)

BUILDUP OF Cf$sup 252$ AND INTERMEDIATE ISOTOPES FROM Cm$sup 244$ IN A HIGH FLUX

Description: The amount of Cf/sup 252/ and intermediate isotopes which could be made from Cm/sup 244/ in a reactor with high neutron flux was calculated. The variations of different isotopes formed in the bombardment as a function of time are described by a series of linear differential equations. The cross sections used were either weighed measured values or values estimated from the amounts of curium and californium isotopes formed in irradiations of heavy elements. The number of atoms of heavy curium isotopes per initial Cm/sup 244/ atom is given as a function of total flux intervals. The buildup of Bk/sup 249/ and the californium isotopes is also shown.

A Condenser for the Vacuum Distillation of Metals

Description: A condenser, suitable for use in the distillation of metals was designed. The temperature of the condensing surface was established by controlling the pressure over boiling NaK-78 contained within the condenser. Performance was evaluated in test units in which pure bismuth was distilled as the test metal. (auth)

A CONTRIBUTION TO THE STUDY OF THE REDUCTION OF UF$sub 4$ TO URANIUM METAL

Description: Reduction of small charges of uranium tetrafluoride with magnesium proved to be successful. By hand-tamping of UF/sub 4/-- Mg blend, tap densities ranglng between3.1 and 3.4 g/cc were obtained. The reduction yields for these densities ranged from 72.79 to 93.71%. In the case of machinecompacted UF4-- Mg blend having tap densities from 3.58 to 3.68 g/cc, reduction yields were higher, ranging between 91.45 and 97.2%. Machine-compacted blends gave much more uniform temperature distribution curves during the preheating period, as a result of higher tap densities. The best yields were obtained by firing a machine- compacted blend containing 5% Mg excess at a furnace temperature of 650 deg C, giving an average crude metal yield of 96.3%. However, the high carbon content of 174 ppm in the crude uranium biscuits obtained by compacts reduction, as a result of hydrocarbon binder presence, appeared to be a disadvantage. Attempts were also made to demonstrate the initiation of the reduction reaction at temperatures lower than 500 deg C by taking x-ray-diffraction patterns of the samples of the UF4-- Mg charges heated up to various temperatures.

DEVELOPMENT OF METHODS FOR THE REFABRICATION OF EBR-II FUEL ELEMENTS. PART I. ENGINEERING CONSIDERATIONS FOR EBR-II FUEL REFABRICATION. PART II. DEVELOPMENT OF INJECTION CASTING METHODS AND EQUIPMENT. PART III. DEVELOPMENT OF FUEL PIN PROCESSING METHODS AND EQUIPMENT. PART IV. ASSEMBLY, WELDING, AND LEAK TESTING EBR-II FUEL RODS. PART V. DODIUM BONDING AND BOND TESTING EBR-II FU

Description: The development of remote fabrication methods and equipment in which the cooling periods, chemical fission product separation, and complete decontamination of the fuel is not required is discussed. A process designed around precision casting in multiple, glass molds served as a basis for design of refabrication equipment. The injection casting process is used. Procedures and equipment were developed for the remote manufacture of right-cylindrical, uranium alloy fuel pins from the castings. Assembly, welding, and leak testing of the EBR-II fuel rods are described. Methods of sodium bonding and bond testing are described. (M.C.G.)
