he said. —
Elliott said that atomic energy
was never a secret; The only my-
stery concerned a method of sep-
arating the flow of gases in uran-
ium. "Scientists in every part of
the globe have been working on
the answer for decades, he added

Lockjaw Can Now Be
State Health Doctor
Lockjaw, or tetanus, is a very
serious disease caused by a tiny
germ that looks like a stick with
a ball on one end^ something like
a microscopic lollipop, says Dr.
Geo. W. Cox, State Health Officer.
This ball is called a spore and it is
the seed of the germ- Lockjaw
germs are found in the soil, espec-
ially in manured soil of the barn-
yard or garden^ in blank cartridg-
es; etc.^in fact, just about every-
where, These germs grow best in
wounds where there is consider-
able tissr° HoctM'ftinn nnrt in
which chips of glass, wood splin-
tersTOT" grains of dirt have been
Every accident seen by the phy-
sician must be considered from the
lockjaw angle; and whenever the* c
is any question, tetanus antitoxin
should be given, for it is the anti-
toxin that has helped to keep the
incidence of lockjaw at its low lev-
el. Your physician will advise you
as to its use. Its disadvantages are

that it gives only temporary pro
tection; it does not get rid of theK^
lockjaw germs in the wound; and
it does somtimes cause hives and
other disagreeable symptoms for
a few days, particularly if the sub-
ject has had previous injections.
Should lockjaw develop, it requires
much antitoxin and entails great
expense; and even then, not all
cases oah-be saved.
It is not possible to free the en-
vironment of lockjaw germs, but
now there is a method of active
immunization. The subject be-
comes his own manufacturing es-
tablishment for antitoxin to com-
bat lockjaw poison.
One nice feature about the treat-
ment is that it can be combined
with diphtheria and whooping
cough prophylaxis. The concurrent
immunization Is, preferably, car-
ried out in infancy. Should a child
alrtady have had diphtheria toxid
and whooping cough vaccine in-
jections, he can take the lockjaw
toxid injection alone; and these
can be given at any time with very
