Re: H

H, J, K, L -- elements whose
atoms cling to one last proton.
[An error: None but H
wears that specific face. -- Board's Note]

[Dissent: We see more such lonely
elements, but the Institute sees none.
First Chair wrote: ". . . unwise
to strip from Hydrogen his well-earned
solitude." -- Board's Note, Minority]
