March Of Dimes Grants
Award to Defects Study

Chemical Destroys Parasitic Lamprey

The National Foundation of the
March of Dimes has awarded a re-
newal grant, Dr. A. C. Kerlikowske,
director of the University Hospi-
tal, announced recently.
The grant, for $55,701, is for the
support of the University's Birth
Defects Clinical Study Center. The
Center was launched last year
with March of Dimes support. The
director is Prof. Donita B. Sulli-
van of the pediatrics department.
Prof. Sullivan and Prof. David
Dickinson, head of the pediatric
rehabilitation program, are cur-
rently working on an integrated
program of research, teaching and
care in the area of birth defects.
Among the studies is one on hy-
drocephalus, or water on the brain.
The concern is with surgical meth-
ods of draining away the excess
fluids, a program developed in co-
operation with the department of
The researchers are concerned
with psychological studies of treat-
ed cases which occur in babies
old enough to be tested for intelli-
gence. This permits study of the
degree of prevention of mental re-
tardation by the treatment.
Research is also being done on
spine development. Coordinated
with the research effort on these
and similar conditions is a pro-
gram of professional training for
nurses, medical students, interns
and residents as well as postgrad-
uate meetings for practicing physi-
cians. The entire program is cen-
tered in the department of pedi-
The treatment and care furnish-
ed patients under the Birth De-
fects Center program serves as a
model for other institutions which
must treat the one out of 16 ba-
bies who are born with defects.
'U' Wins Award
For Alumni Gifts
The University won an honor-
able mention award of $125 re.
cently from the American Alumni
Council for sustained performance
among public institutions in an
alumni giving competition. The
money will be used for scholar-
ships and students loans, as well
as research and faculty awards.

Higher quality solutions result
when groups are asked to seek ad-

Maier decided in a study on the
improvement of group decisions.
Group leaders are able to broad-

seeking multiple solutions.
The multiple solution method
converts a problem situation into
a choice situation.
However, when there are two or
three obvious Alternatives, the
group can be asked to seek out
less obvious alternatives and turn

Lake trout fishing may be a

A multi-million dollar industry
before the war, lake trout fishing;
has suffered great losses from the
sea lamprey.
At the annual meeting of the
Great Lakes Fishery Commission
(GLFC) at the' University, opti-
mistic reports were given on the
revival of the lake trout.

Cowan Cites
Steel Viewvs
Three "general lessois" can be
learned from the growth problems
of the steel industry, Prof. Donald
R. G. Cowan of the business school
said recently.
Speaking before the Chicago
chapter of the American Statisti-
cal Association, Prof. Cowan said
that the government has need for
better understanding of "the im-
portance of profit and capital in
major capital-using industries such
as steel."
Capital Starvation
He pointed to the dangers to the
"insidious" effects of what he
termed "capital starvation" re-
tarding growth. He indicated that
such things as inflation, heavy
taxation, and price regulation
tended to slow capital expansion.
A lesson labor can learn from
steel is the danger of "over pric-
ing" hourly wages. Prof. Cowan
indicated that such "over pricing"
reduces total employment, impairs
a company's competitive position
and encourages automation.
The last lesson was directed to-
wards management. Prof. Cowan
advised corporate executives "not'
to allow themselves to become so
inbred and satisfied that tradition
rules their decisions."
He n o t e d that "relentless
change" is characteristic of our
economy and cited the need for

been netted in Lake Superior's
waters. This year, only a total of
9000 have been reported in the
spawning streams.
The difference in the number
of lamprey is a result of chemical
treatments in spawning streams.
A. L. Pritchard, chairman of the
GLFC, recalled that when the
United States and Canada signed
the treaty agreement establish-
ing the commission eight years
ago, "there was considerable
doubt that this parasite could be
reduced, let along maintained at
a level which would permit re-
covery of the fishery.
"Recent events have, I believe,
shown that our governments were
not unreasonably optimistic in
assigning us the task of eliminat-
ing lamprey."
Reduction of lamprey catches at
Lake Superior spawning streams
is due to the resourcefulness of
the men directly engaged in the

Further reduction in this
is expected. Treatment for I
Michigan streams has been sI
ed, Pritchard reported.
Trout Survival

assed" by government auditors and
of having to match certain grants
given them.
On the matching-grant problem,
Harvard University said that about
$5 billion must be raised to pro-
vide for the nation in research
during the next five years. This
would mean, on the matching-
grant plan, that the universities
would have to. provide $5 million,
the Times reported.
Challenge Questioned
"It is questionable whether this
challenge will be met," said Har-
vard, suggesting a plan where the
burden on non-federal sources
would be less.
The study found that it is the
research conducted within the de-
partments of the institutions, not

in government provided facilities,
which have the most impact on the
institutions, the study noted.
The study reported that many
government officials and educa-
tors believe the government must
move now to strengthen higher
education as a whole.
Taking part in the study were
the University, Harvard, Notre
Dame, Stanford, Chicago, Texas,
Cornell, Princeton, Pennsylvania,
State University of New York, In-
diana, Syracuse, Tulane, Iowa
State, Union, Wyoming and Louis-
ville Universities;-' the University
