Lectures … HEADLINES IN SCIENCE How would you like to go into the research laboratory, meet some of the men who are responsible for many of the material products that you enjoy? HEADLINES IN SCIENCE deals with the human interest stories of men engaged in modern scientific research, who produce the synthetic fabrics, nylon, the detergents, the new types of rubber, the new plastics, the Freon gas used in your refrigerators and in aerosol bombs for the kitchen and the home. A modern display of chemical products is used to illustrate the lecture, and some products are shown which have not yet appeared on the general market. This lecture has always appealed to audiences made up of both men and women. The length of the lecture is one hour to one hour and fifteen minutes. A question and answer period can follow. This lecture can be shortened to accommodate a luncheon club. THE STORY OF ATOMIC ENERGY The most absorbing topic today is the subject of atomic energy. The STORY OF ATOMIC ENERGY is an illustrated lecture, developed for the layman, so that he may get a comprehensive picture of this most modern subject. This lecture is divided into three parts: (1) The Atom; (2) Radioactivity; (3) Atomic Energy. A simple and understandable explanation of the structure and behavior of the atom is presented. A series of striking photographs, many of them beautifully colored, present the atom to you. (A film strip projector, for a 35 mm. film strip, with operator, to be furnished by the committee). The fascinating subject of radioactivity is explained and demonstrated with a Geiger counter and radioactive materials. The audience is privileged to check their watch dials with the counter. (An electrical outlet is required). The subject of atomic energy is now presented and illustrated with a new ten minute film (16 mm.), showing the atom bomb blast, diagrams illustrating nuclear fission, a discussion of the hydrogen bomb, and the application of atomic energy for peaceful purposes. (Movie projector and operator to be furnished by the committee). A modern, non-technical, and interesting presentation of this absorbing topic. SOME RECENT ENGAGEMENTS: Rotary Club, South Bend, Ind.; Rotary Club, Grand Rapids, Mich.; Architects' Club (Mich., Ohio, Ind., Ill.), South Bend, Ind., Knife & Fork Club, Fort Worth, Texas; Sequoah Dinner Club, Oklahoma City, Okla.; Phillips University, Enid, Okla. CHRISTIAN CULTURE SERIES, Windsor, Ontario, Canada, says: Dr. Hinton is a superb speaker, clear, popular and inspirational. Valuable for any group to hear; perfectly non-technical. A grand character who left all feeling a spirit of Christian optimism. Co-Director of the local radio program, Headlines in Chemistry, presented weekly over WHOT. Sponsored by the American Chemical Society.
