This correspondence concerns Rala Run #24, Shipment #33 to Los Alamos, New Mexico. According to the radiation reading taken 20 hours after LST, this product contained approximately 3575 curies of Barium at LST 1030 EST on March 12, 1948. The accuracy of the measurement is questionable because of the radiochemical analyses made of process samples and the abnormally rapid rate of increase of radiation from the product between LST and 20 hours after LST. During the process of removal of the product from the cell, it was noted that some foreign material was lodged on the shoulder of the cone. It was impossible at this stage of operation to correct the condition and the material was shipped that way. Appraisal of the product was also requested by Oak Ridge National Laboratory.
