A summary of the present status of the entire program is described in detail. Parts making ability has developed to a full specification condition with the exception of the tungsten grid washers. Various methods of producing grid washers are being investigated. Previously re ported sublimation problems were principally traced to contamination from chemical baths hav ing exposure to intolerable contaminants. These troubles have been eliminated except for optimi zation of cathode base metal specification. Both exhaust sets are in operation and perform as planned. Tube making facilities have been consolidated and tube making rates are being accelerated to a 15 tube per week rate. Personnel training is progressing smoothly. The radio frequency power output test set has been com pleted, 4 RF aging cavity sets are complete with parts for 7 additional cavities 95 completed. Parts for 10 life test sets have been ordered.
