AEC Sees
Atom Waste
As Problem
As more atomic power plants
are built, disposal of radioactive
waste may become a problem, ac-
cording to an official of the En-
rico Fermi Atomic Power Plant
near Monroe.
Robert W. Hartwell, general
manager of a company which is
building the atomic power plant,
said the Atomic Energy Commis-
sion has agreed -to take the plant's
wastes and reprocess them.
The plant is designed so other
radioactive material will be dis-
charged through ventilators and
sewage will be less than one-
tenth of the limit considered safe
by the AEC, Hartwell said.
No Radioactive Hazards
"There will be no radioactive
hazards to the community," he
noted. The government agree-
ment to handle the radioactive
wastes will serve as an induce-
ment to private industry to build
atomic power plants, Hartwell ex-
He said there is no danger of
contaminating Lake Erie because,
even though a great deal of lake
water will be used for the plant,
it will be used for steam rather
than used in the reactor.
Hartwell urged more develop-
ment of peaceful uses for atomic
power because of the great de-
mand for electricity and the de-
pletion of natural resources.

CAPTIVE TORNADO -- Meteorological students can observe a
captive tornado in this device created by University researcher
David Jones. The whirling mass is formed by heating water over a

'U' Research
To Continue
Polio Work
A March of Dimes grant of
$99,113 was given yesterday to the
Poliomyelitis Respiratory and Re-
habilitation Center of the Univer-
sity Medical Center.
The grant will be used by the
hospital to continue its work on
procedures to enable iron lung
patients to return to near normal
Announcement of the grant was
made by Dr. A. C. Kerlikowski,
director of University Hospital,
and Basil O'Conner, president of
the National Foundation (origi-
nally the National Foundation for
Infantile Paralysis).
Program Treats, Teaches
Serious and complicated polio
cases are sent for care to the
Medical Center which conducts a
program of treatment, teaching,
and research.
The- program consists of reha-
bilitating these severally disabled
patients. Many who are admitted
in ironIlungs have been able to
return home no longer needing
breathing aid. Others require res-
piratorsnonly, apart of the day.
Need Home Care
In regard to the home care pro-
gram, Dr. David G. Dickinson,
medical director of the Rehabili-
tation Center, pointed out that
patients' well-being depends on
three factors.
. These are the need for deter-
mining if they can be cared for at
home, a carefully planned and
controlled breathing aid program
to minimize relapse, and periodic
readmission to the Center for a
few days to re-evaluate their con-
The Center also does research
into various aspects of respiratory
failure due to polio and other

Prof. John W. Carr of
mathematics department,


Prof. Norman R. Scott of the-en-
gineering department were guests
in Russia of the Ukranian Aca-
demies of Science, during August
and September.
The United States, they com-
mented, is still ahead in many
phases of the important field of
electronic computing, but the
Russians aren't far behind.
Most important achievement of
the trip, both scientists. agreed,
was the establishment of closer
ties between American and Soviet
scientists and their countries.
"All of the Russians we met
were interested in exchanging re-
prints of technical papers dealing
with progress in computer re-
search in the United States,"
Prof. Carr said,

The public health school has
received a five-year grant of $167,-
620 from the W. K. Kellogg Foun-
dation to finance a study of the
changing trends in the public
health movement and their impact
on operating and teaching pro-
grams in public health.
Prof. Hugh B. Robins of the
public health school will direct the
newly organized research and
teaching service in the study.-

professor of public health practice

clate dean and secreary of the
engineering school, and Prof.
John G. Young, assistant to the
dean of the engineering school,
spoke to the Eigineers' Wives of

Mich., for about 20 years and was
a non-resident lecturer in the
School of Public Health.
Prof. Henry F.Vaughan, dean of
the public health school, said that.
increased attention is being paid
to the chronic diseases, cancer,
heart disease, diabetes and mental
health because of conservations
in the earlier years of life with
Salk vaccines and the new vac-
cines becoming available for com-
mon respiratory diseases.
"All of these changes in empha-
sis require a review of the pattern
under which community organi-
zations, both official and voluntary,
should approach the new look of
health conservation and promo-
tion," he said.
He emphasized need "of greater
teamwork between the health de-
partment, staff, the voluntary
agencies and the free enterprise
as represented by industry and
private medical practice."

neering department, as John E.
