Nuclear Research In Australia Spoiled By Theft of Lead Bricks

Sydney, July 7(CNA-UP) The theft of 100 pounds sterling worth of lead bricks from the Cliffside Tunnel at South Head last week ruined a 15,000 pound sterling experiment and set back Australia's nuclear research, Professor Harry Massel of the Sydney University School of Physics said today. 

The bricks were to form a protective shield around a box of highly sensitive photographic plates which have been exposed to atomic radiation in the University of California bevatron. A special emulsion for the plates had been made by Ilford's in England.

The brick were not radioactive.

Police discounted suspicion of sabotage. They said it was more likely the bricks were stolen by fishermen who thought they would serve as ideal sinkers.

France To Buy US Helicopters

Washington, July 7 (CNA-UP) A Defense Department spokesman confirmed today that France has made arrangements to purchase eight helicopters from the Sikorski Company in the United States.

He said these were to be equipped with litters, however, for rescue and transport operations. He said the United States approved the French purpose of making direct contact with the producer for the purchase.

The United Press learned from other sources earlier this week that an arrangement substantially like this had been made, but official confirmation was lacking then. It was understood that delivery of most of these airplanes could not be made before January or February.
