will function as a type of en-
gineeringi.for the social sciences,
showing practical applications and
scientific uses .for what is learned
about scientific organization.
These functions are not now well
developed in the social sciences,"
Use of Knowledge
Reason for establishment of the
center is the "large and rapidly
growing gap between the creation
of new knowledge by scientific re-
search and the full use of this
new >knowledge,"according to a
report f',the faculty committee
which proposed the new organiza-

"We are entering the golden
age o~f genetics, in which we
will make important discoveries
about the internal factors that
affect man, as we have in the past
learned about the external factors
that affect him," Prof. James V.
Neel said recently.
Prof. Neel, chairman of the
University's human genetics de-
partmnent, Vice-President for Aca-
demic Affairs Roger W. Heyns,
and Dean William N. Hubbard
Jr., of the MedicalSchool, spoke

Other University officials, Re-
gents and members of the Buhl
family were among a capacity au-
dience that attended the cere-
monies, held in a tent pitched be-
tween the new building and the
nursing school building.
The Buhl foundation provided
the initial gift for the $506,800
building, with the remainder of
the necessary funds coming from
a matching federal grant.
Prof. Neel also revealed to. the
audience that 'additional human
genetics research space will be
provided in the University's $10
million Medical Science Bldg. II,
which will be attached to the
Buhl Research Center Bldg. Start
of construction of the second
medical science structure is ex-
pected within the coming year.
Pointing out that it is the goal
of researchers in the new build-
ing to "uncover new knowledge for
the benefit of mankind," Heyns
called it "a facility in which we
have great pride, and one for
which we have great hopes."
In an earlier scientific pro-
gram in connection with the dedi-
cation, Nobel Prize winner Prof.,
Edward L. Tatum of the Rocke-
feller Institute spoke on "Molec-
ular Genetics in Human Biology,"
while Prof. Curt Stern of the Uni-
versity of California, another of
the world's leading geneticists,
spoke on "Genetic Mosaics in Ani-
mal and Man."
