Description/Abstract:
An acknowledgement that RaLa Run #46 narrowly escaped being a fiasco is given. Low ion-chamber readings on the final product were disregarded, at the time they were made, and the shipment, assumed to be about 25,000 Curies, was started on its way. Some misgivings resulted in an investigation which discovered two-thirds of the product was still in the final evaporator where it had not been redissolved and transferred to the cone. It was quickly recovered and the original shipment recalled.
