Vice-President for Research A.
Geoffrey Norman is, by his own
terms, currently in the business
of "spreading misery."
University researchers have
been successful in getting research
grants from the National Science
Foundation but a good number of
projects have not been sufficiently
funded. As a result, Norman has
requested that researchers at the
University cut down their spend-
Norman has also released a ten-
tative breakdown of the $62.3:
million expended for research in
fiscal 1968 and predicted that re-
search volume would be about
the same in fiscal 1969.
For the five years prior to fiscal
1968, research growth averaged
14 per cent a year. The increase in
fiscal 1968 was 4.2 per cent, bare-
ly keeping pace with inflation.
"Obviously, the growth rate
couldn't continue to be that
large," Norman said. "The Univer-
sity is not growing that fast."

The vice president now has lim-
ited space available for labora-
tory research in the physical sci-
ences. There also is an apparent
shift in research funding f r o m
physical to social sciences.
"This may shake a lot of peo-
ple," Norman said, "but the phy-
sical scientist is least well sup-
ported. For example, chemistry's'
grant total has not shifted in sev-
eral years."

Of the approximately $62.3 mil-
lion in research in fiscal 1968,
$48.3 million came from the fed-
eral government. Other major
supporters of University research
were foundations, health agencies
and private industry.
Norman attributed the drop in
DOD support to the switching of

some. projects to non-Defense
agencies and a drop in long-range
projects due to the pressures of
the Vietnam war.
Norman's job of getting support
and space for research projects
has been complicated by NSF's
movement into the social sciences.

The Union Board of Directors,

criticized the executive council

Mott Hospital could appropriately claim,
"Babies are our business-our only business."
For Mott Hospital is the University's forth-
coming children's hospital. With completion
scheduled for the early summer of 1969, infants
and children will be treated there instead of at
the University Hospital.
Besides being "the core unit or the nucleus for
a children's medical center," according to Dr.
William Oliver, chairman of the pediatrics depart-
ment, physician-in-chief at Mott, the hospital will
also provide a training center for students in all
health disciplines, such as dietetics, nursing, and

funds for the hospital. The rest of the funds come
from federal grants of $1.5 million, University
Hospital Medical School which contributed
$600.000 and $250,000 in various gift donations.
Since the primary focus at the Hospital will
be childecare, the hospital hopes to attract a group
of experts who specialize in this field. This would
include pediatric surgeons, radiologists, optomo-
logists and others who work with specific child-
care programs.
One such program is the "neonatal intensive
care unit" which would be used to treat babies
with illnesses during the first month after birth.
Illnesses the intensive care unit can hope to pre-
vent, according to Oliver, include a respiratory
