(Original Caption) 12/2/1948-Chicago, IL: Monster atom smasher of the University of Chicago, already the focus of the nuclear physics world, takes a stride toward completion as pole discs are installed. The all-steel discs, shown in place above, weighs 82 tons each. The device, called a synchocyclotron, costs $1,700,000 and is expected to be ready in little over a year. More than four miles of copper wire will be placed between discs to make the giant magnet.
