Problems

t

likely to include the people who
own their own homes, live in the
suburbs, have two cars in the
garage, and use newer kinds of
household appliances and those
under 45 years of age.
The "achievers" change jobs
more often and tend to be optim-
ists in evaluating the economic
outlook-both for themselves and
the country as a whole.
But, even where incomes are
similar, the achievement-minded
differ significantly from security-
minded. They spend more of their
money on durable goods and at
the same time, stock more away in
savings accounts. In short, they
try to build a better financial
future for themselves.
In contrast, the security-minded
spend more of their income on
non - durable goods and services
and are less likely to build as big
a nestegg at the bank.
New Book
These findings, developed in in-
terviews with national samples of
urban families in 1954 and 1958,
are included in Center director
Prof. George Katona's new book,
"The Powerful Consumer."
Despite their desire to get ahead
economically, two-thirds of the
achievement-minded people say
they're satisfied with both their
income and their standard of liv-
ing. Among the security-oriented,
this proportion is only 40 per cent.
"Thus it is not dissatisfaction
which creates striving for achieve-
ment and upward mobility," Prof.
Katona comments. "Nor, in view

of the relatively high ownership
of physical assets among the
achievement-mindde, does satura-
tion results in attitudes emphasiz-
ing security."
Among middle income families
in 1954, 1955, and 1956, he con-
tinues, a somewhat higher propor-
tion of the achievement-minded
saved money.
"This finding may be considered
surprising since saving is generally
viewed as contributing to secur-
ity," the expert notes. "It contra-
dicts the widespread notion that
mobile people spend, while non-
mobile people save.
"It suggests that adding to say-
ings and other liquid assets is a
dynamic form of behavior which
represents achievement of highly
valued goals."
Give Award
-to Honor
Prof. White
A distinguished teacher award
has been established by the Amer-
ican Society for Metals to honor
the late Albert Easton White, di-
rector of the University's Engi-
neering Research Institute for 33
years.
The professional society, which
Prof. White helped to found, will
make the award only occasionally
to "recognize unusually long and
distinguished service of a seasoned
teacher who has attained a repu-
tation because of his ability to
inspire students and impart en-
thusiasm, and for his metallurgi-
cal accomplishments."
Prof. White, who retired in 1954,
had held his position as director
of the Engineering Research In-
stitute since 1920, when the Re-
gents created the Department of
Engineering Research, and was
largely responsible for the organi-
zation's growth.
He was widely recognized for
his work in metallurgy, especially
in the field of high-temperature
properties of metals for service in
power plants.
Prof. White joined the Univer-
sity staff in 1911 as an instructor
and was promoted to full profes-
sor in 1919. He died in 1956.

Project physicists on the Uni-
versity's new cyclotron building
will meet two problems next De-
cember, caused by the iron core
of the atom smasher.
The core weighs 360 ton, and
will be cast and installed in pieces.
However, the largest piece will
weigh 110 tons.
The first problem will be to find
a nearby rail siding that san
handle a piece of this size, and
then a special road may have to
be built to transport the piece to
the building site.
By the time the core is ready
for delivery the foundation and
walls of the cyclotron machine
room will be nearly finished, but
the roof will be left off so the core
pieces can be lifted in. Final de-
tails for doing this are still in-
complete.
The building, on the North
Campus, will be completed in 300
to 320 days, but conGt .,tion and
installation of the cyclotron it-
self is expected to take more than
two years.
The new medium energy cyclo-
tron, for which the Atomic Energy
Commission is providing $1.8 mil-
lion, has been described as "the
best high precision instrument for
analyzing the nuclear structure of
heavier elements."
The same building will also
house the University's present low
energy cyclotron, now located in
the basement of Randall Labora-
tory.
Group To Hold
Play Tryouts
Tryouts for the Ann Arbor Civic
Theatre's fall presentation of
"Darkness at Noon," written by
Sidney Kingsley, will be held from
7 p.m. to 9:30 p.m. today and to-
morrow in Rm. C-104 of Ann
Arbor High School.
The play will be given Oct. 6-8
at Lydia Mendelssohn. There are
parts for 18 men and three wom-
en. Reherasals will begin the first
of September.

Keith Buck, '61E, was the vic-
tim of an explosion and fire in the
Chemistry Bldg. yesterday.
The student received serious
burns on his face and hands and
minor burns of the abdomen and
left leg, but was described in good
condition. He was experimenting
with lithium aluminum hydride
and nitric acid in Rm. 3400 lab-
oratory when the accident oc-
curred. Other students helped him
from the room.
He was given emergency treat-
ment at University Hospital and
will remain there for an unde-
termined, time.
