"Slate slabs normally don't come

The University has received
word that the large slate base will
be shipped from Vermont within
a week and should reach Ann

Part of the floor and a panel
of one wall will have to be torn out
to accommodate the modernistic
sculpture and its large base,

"The great International Geo-
physical Year extension of weather,
observation will give the weather
scientists better data than they
could have thought of having, even
as recently as ten years ago," Prof.
Sydney Chapman of the aeronau-
tical engineering department said
Prof. Chapman, who is head of
the IGY, added that the scientists
will be better able to utilize this
information because it will be
much more complete than previ-
ously. Thus it may soon be possible
to have accurate weather predic-
tion, he told his Angell Hall lecture
After World War II, Prof. Chap-
man explained, exploration of the
atmosphere was greatly advanced
by rockets. "In this work the
physicists and engineers of the
United States gave a lead."
Advances came in "devising the
necessary instruments to measure
and signal the air properties met

themselves," the professor said in
his speech on "The Air Above."
"The United States' IGY rocket
program for the study of the upper
atmosphere was very ample," Prof.
Chapman explained. During the
first 12 months of the 18-month
IGY, 116 rockets were launched
under this program, he said.
Conditions Influence Weather
Part of the IGY program in-
cluded the establishment of a
central weather station in Ant-
arctica. Much data was collected
by this station which marks "a
notable advance" in Antarctic
meteorology, previously the most
unexplored weather area in the
world, he noted.
"The data should show to what
extent the weather of the Southern
hemisphere as a whole is influ-
enced by conditions on the Ant-
arctic Continent," Prof. Chapman
The station also recorded the
low temperature for the earth,
-102 degrees Fahrenheit, surpass-
ing the previous low temperature
of -90 degrees recorded in Siberia.
