Clipped From The Brooklyn Daily Eagle
Would Swallow Radium To Dispel Death Scare Declaring that the deaths of six workers in the East Orange, X. J., piant of the United States Radium Corporation were due to some cause other than radium absorption, Will- lam J. A. Bailey, director of the Bailey Radium Laboratories of East Orange, today offered to swallow in the presence of any body of scien tists as much radium as is used on all the watch dials painted in the plant of the former concern in a month. "Some cause other than radium absorption1 was responsible for thes-deaths." declared Mr. Bailey. '"Dr Edwin E. Leman, chief chemist of the United States Radium Corpora tion, whose death recently was heralded as that of a martyr to science, was not in rohust health when he first took up radium work."
