This document contains the Health Physics Department Report for the month ending October 31, 1946. A shipment to Chicago that arrived by truck had a higher field of radiation in the cab than usually permitted, and an investigation revealed that the boxes had been moved nearer to the cab after being surveyed at Clinton Laboratories and shoved into this position. To avoid this mistake in the future, surveyors have been instructed to survey truck shipments only when they can see the boxes finally arranged and fastened in place. A new Chang and Eng, double ionization fast neutron chamber, was constructed and placed in production. A number of requests were recieved for the flow sheet of the Bi PO-4 method of separating plutonium from urine, and this flowsheet dated October 31, 1946, is included.
