RADIUM Figure The Astounding Story of RADIUM with Demonstrations (Illustrated) By Luther S. H. Gable Ph. T. Notable Radiologist and Lecturer Lone survivor of a group of six chemical engineers who refined first radium in America A REDPATH FEATURE ATTRACTION Luther S. H. Gable, Ph. T. The Astounding Story of Radium With Demonstrations (Illustrated) T HE Astounding Story of Radium as told by Luther S. H. Gable, Ph. T., lone survivor of a group of six chemical engineers and research men who refined the first radium produced in America, is a graphic account of the life of the radium prospector, the mystery of radium research laboratories, and the tragic death of his associates. It is a gripping episode in the lives of unsung heroes of our higher civilization. The Redpath Bureau feels singularly fortunate in securing the services of Professor Gable for a limited lecture tour as he is presenting something absolutely different and unique in the field of science. His talk will be science in popular form. His amazing story of the six pioneer research men who were doing some marvelous things with radium, five of whom lost their lives in the interest of science, is full of thrills, adventure and information. What are the curative powers of radium? Will it run machinery? Will it keep our houses warm in winter? Professor Gable answers these questions and predicts great things for radium. Some of Professor Gable's lectures will be illustrated with beautifully colored lantern slides to tell the story of his radio-active career. He will also carry with him magic boxes, containing real radium. The magic box is a perpetual motion fireworks machine. These boxes he will use in his demonstrations. Dr. Gable is just as interesting as his subject. A delightful speaker who interests a women's group as quickly and easily as a men's group. Many Clubs have booked him for next season as a feature attraction. Dr. Gable makes science interesting and easy for the layman to understand. The Milwaukee Sentinel carried a first page story following his appearance before the Rotary Club. The New Orleans Tribune made a big first page story (with photo) of his appearance there before 1200 men and women at the Chamber of Commerce. Radium interests both newspapers and audiences. Words of Enthusiastic Approval Toledo, Ohio, Blade. A modern genie opened up a tiny box of magic in the Chamber of Commerce Thursday noon. The study and development of uses of radium is now the magic workhouse of science, Prof. Gable said. Milwaukee, Wis. We enjoyed immensely the talk given yesterday by Dr. Luther S. H. Gable. —Whitney Eastman, President of Milwaukee Rotary Club. Dubuque, Iowa. Dr. Gable made a very favorable impression and delivered a lecture which was of great interest not only to our students but to citizens of our community. —Paul H.
