R1800-030 * (Pg 4) on the HHR situation. In the meantime House understands that his salary is not continuing on the regular basis. He is making up quantities of CARBON ash, appliances and Ipsab in order that we have supplies on hand. He is reluctant about giving up and will continue to help out as
R1800-030 * (Pg 7) looking up available references on "animated ash" and I found only a mention of bamboo ash. The most generally mentioned ash was what was called "CARBON ash". This was produced by the burning of two CARBON rods in a partial vacuum. The ash was supposed to form on the sides of
R1800-030 * (Pg 7) The readings once stated that several hours burning might produce a grain. Exactly what this ash is was never stated, other than to call it "CARBON ash". After it had been prepared this ash was to be sealed in airtight capsules to keep it from moisture and to be taken as
R1800-030 * (Pg 7) discovered, and is in common use.
If your friend wants to try to produce and experiment with this ash I would suggest that he use CARBON rods for the electrodes (for either CARBON or bamboo ash). Since an arc has a negative resistance characteristic, an external resistance should be used in
R1800-030 * (Pg 7) 83% vacuum which I assume also is as he figured it (5" Hg).
The trouble with all this is that there are several kinds of CARBON, and different kinds of arcs, and the amount of vacuum may affect the results. A lot of experimentation is called for (this simply has not

Dear Mr. and Mrs Troost:
I understand from several of your letters to the ARE that you are interested in experimenting with the "CARBON ash" mentioned in some readings dealing with treatment for cancer and allied diseases.
R1800-030 * (Pg 8) and made up some notes which Gladys typed up as the extracts on ash.
There were two types mentioned; one was bamboo burned in a CARBON arc, (this was referred to an animated ash) and the other was the residue that collects on the glass when CARBON is burned, in an
R1800-030 * (Pg 8) bamboo burned in a CARBON arc, (this was referred to an animated ash) and the other was the residue that collects on the glass when CARBON is burned, in an arc, in a near vacuum. It mentioned that a day's burning might produce a grain. Some people have made this
R1800-030 * (Pg 8) such information out to members on an experimental basis, making no claims as to what it is or what it will do. This was called CARBON ash.
Since I understand you have made up some I would surely like to know if you have had it analyzed and what is its
R1800-030 * (Pg 8) up some I would surely like to know if you have had it analyzed and what is its exact composition? Is it a form of CARBON? or something else? what? Is it radio active? The readings said that it should be sealed in capsules upon production as it deteriorated with moisture.
R1800-030 * (Pg 8) to keep records of all work of this type that is done. Therefore any information you may have to offer on your work with the CARBON ash will be a real contribution to the ARE. Thanks.
