"Equilibrium-conditions in debris-laden streams," by W. W. 
Rubey: Am. Geophy. Union Trans. 14: 1933, p. 497-505.

"Outline of the energetics of stream-transportation of 
solids," by Howard Cook:  Am. Geophys. Union Trans. 1935, 
Part II, p. 456-463.

"Energy-balance in stream-flows carrying suspended load," by
Robert T. Knapp:  Am. Geophys. Union Trans. 1938, Part I, p. 

"The mechanism of energy loss in fluid friction," by Boris A.
Bakhmeteff and William Alloan:  Am. Soc. of Civil Eng. 
Trans., 1946, V. 111, p. 1043-1102.

"Physical and chemical behavior of suspended solids," by 
Richard D. Hoak (Mellon Institute, Pittsburgh, Pa.):  Sewage 
and Industrial Wastes, v. 31, no. 12, p. 1401-1415, December 

"Thermodynamic properties of manganese and its compounds," by
Alla D. Mah, U.S. Bureau of Mines, Rept. of Inv. 5600, 1960.

"Solubilization pegged as a key to detergency".  Chem. & Eng.
News, v. 38, no. 35, p. 34-35, August 29, 1960.  
(Effectiveness of surfactants is partly due to their ability 
to solubilise oily soils, Monsanto research shows.)

"Measurements of organic contaminants in the Nation's 
rivers," by Francis M. Middleton and James J. Lichtenberg, 
Robert A. Taft Eng. Center:  Ind. & Eng. Chem, v. 52, no. 6, 
p. 99A-102A, June 1960.  (A beginning survey using the carbon 
filter technique, shows variability of contaminant 
concentrations and reveals important specific contaminants in 
five major rivers:  Columbia, Colorado, Missouri, 
Mississippi, and Ohio.

"Twenty years of progress in ion exchange," by W. S. Morrison 
and Joseph Thompson:  Water & Sewage Works, v. 107, no. 6, p. 
225-230, June 1960.  (The ten most significant developments 
in this period according to the authors are:  organic cation 
resins, weakly basic anion resins, strongly basic anion 
resins, hot lime-sodium cycle exchange, chloride anion 
exchange dealkalization, mixed bed deionization, counterflow 
regeneration, automation of equipment, high flow rate ion 
exchange, and continuous ion exchange.  These are reviewed 
both in the light of historic place and manner in which it 
increased the usefulness of ion exchange techniques.)

"Review of detergent research program," by P. J. Weaver:  
Jour. Water Pollution Control Federation (formerly Sewage and
Industrial Wastes), v. 32, no. 3, p 288-296, March 1960.
(Presented at 1959 Annual Meeting Ohio Sewage and Industrial
Wastes Association, Cincinnati, Ohio, June 17-19, 1959).

"The structure of liquids," by J. D. Bernal:  Scientific
American, v. 203, no. 2, p. 124-137, August 1960.  (new
geometrical analysis shows that there is some order in the
disorderly arrangements of the molecules of a liquid.  The 
method may lead to a general theory of the liquid state.)

"Geologic history of sea water," W. W. Rubey:  Geol. Soc. 
America Bull., v. 62, no. 9, p. 1111-1148, September 1951.
