The 30th root of 3 and the 44th root of 5 scales

Many of the extremely early papers we now have access to is due to John Chalmers.
 These two show a method not common today, but a line he abandoned. Possibly i am wrong but i don't think i have seen these particular scales mentioned since. Wilson prefers to do his innovations rooted in the past. It reflects his work with plants [which carry their history within] and the direction his tunings grow are informed by that knowledge .
