At Argonne National Laboratory, Lemont, Illinois, Lawrence H. Lanzl prepares a one-ton transfer shield for shipping 15 thin radioactive cobalt wafers to the Argonne Cancer Research Hospital. The University of Chicago, under contract with the U.S. Atomic Energy Commission, operates the hospital. Lanzl, associate professor of radiology at the University of Chicago, will use the discs in cancer control research. Though they weigh less than 12 grams, the discs require a cask weighing several hundred pounds for safe transportation.
