London Daily Mail Reveals
Discovery by Professor at
Sheffield University
Iximlon, Dec. IS. —The invention
ot a new steel, far in advance of
any high speed steel hitherto made,
is ascribed by the Daily Mail to-day
to John Oliver Arnold, professor of
metallurgy at Sheffield University.
The newspapers say that the Ameri
can government is aware of Pro
fessor Arnold's invention and is in
vestigating it and that American
metallurgists also arc working along
lines similar to those of Professor
The Daily Mail indicates that Pro
fessor Arnold uses molyodenum in
stead of tungsten and says:
"If large quantities of molybde
num (a hard, silver-white, metallic
element) can be found and the. price
reduced, tungsten will take a back
seat, because six per cent molybde
num wilj achieve more than 18 i/r
cent tungsten."
Patents in America, Too
Professor Arnold, says tne news
paper, is prevented under the De
fense of the Ttealm Act from utiliz
ing his invention industrially. He is
patenting his invention Ip England
and America, and will be allowed to
proceed with his American patent on
condition that he publishes nothing
concerning it.
The Daily Mail says the govern
ment has asked Professor Arnold
whether he is willing to hand over
his invention to the state and on
what terms b.ut that Arnold does
not intend to comply with the gov
ernment's desire to secure it. A rep
resentative of the American govern
ment, the newspaper continues,
made a special journey to Sheffield
to investigate Professor Arnold's
discovery ,and agents of the United
States are prospecting in America
and Europe for deposits of molybde
num, which previously has been
found chiefly in Canada.
The Daily Mail, which asserts that
Professor Arnold is "shackled" by
government restrictions, expresses
the fear that the United States will
get ahead of Great Britain, on wTTat
it terms an important discovery.
