Chapter 14 EFFECTS DEMONSTRATED BYPARTICLES WITHIN ELECTROMAGNETIC FIELDS
28. I will now discussanother EMBODIMET of my Pioneering Invention.
A. The following is aDECLARATION by Dr. Roger Hastings (who deserves the reader’s respect):
Mr. J.W. Newman has shown mea demonstration in which lead powder placed gingerly onto the surface of waterexhibits a most interesting property. Nearly microscopic streamers of leadimmediately flow down into the water from the lead dust on the surface. Viewedunder the microscope, the particles in the streamers appear as brilliant sparksof light. The streamers swirl in a vortex motion. Having believed that lead isinert to water, this demonstration gave me considerable surprise, and markedlyraised my opinion of Mr. Newman as a Scientist. My graduate and postdoctoraltraining was in the field of condensed matter (solids and liquids), and I amquite certain that Mr. Newman’s discovery would generate considerable excitementin this community of scientists. Applications of this discovery are very likelyto be forthcoming. (Mr. Newman has already described an application in hisdeclaration witnessed by his patent attorney, Mc. Pugh, on Aug.1, 1979.)纽曼先生已经让我看了一个示范，将铅粉轻轻放到水表面，展示出许多有趣的性质。铅的微小彩带马上从水面的铅粉流入水中。在显微镜下，彩带中的粒子呈现出明亮的火花。彩带做涡旋运动旋转。已经相信铅是不与水反应的，这个展示让我相当吃惊，让我明显的认识到作为科学家的纽曼。我研究生和博士后研究的是浓缩物质（固体和液体）领域，这非常确信纽曼先生的发现在这个科学团体将相当令人振奋。这项发明的应用似乎马上会来临。（纽曼先生已经在这份声明里描述一个应用，1979年8月1号由他的专利代理人Mc. Pugh见证。）
