School Gives
0 Design Open House
To Explain Function,
Working of College
From the blue glow of Cerenkov
radiation at the Phoenix Project
to the air turbulence in a super-
sonic wind-tunnel, many aspects
of general interest are open to the
public this weekend in the annual
"Technirama" open house of the
engineering school. The o, p e n
house enables demonstrations of
the past year's advances, innova-
tions and results.
Verbally. familiar but visually
unknown objects are presented in
their physical reality. For exam-
ple, computer is a common word
in the modern world, but rarely
does the layman see one. The
Computing Center will have three
on display. Among ;them is the
IBM 7090, one of the world's fin-
est computers. Students in a va-
riety of courses work with the
computers, but most students have
never seen one.
The Engineering Council pre-
sents the open house each year
with the hope that it will foster
an understanding of, and interest
in, the College of Engineering. En-
gineering is a progression of "de-
veloping ways to utilize economic-
ally the materials and forces of
4 nature for the benefit of man-
kind," the "Technirama" booklet
Two Methods
The engineering school seeks to
fulfill this goal through a union
of two methods: its academic pro-
gram and an active research pro-
9 gram.
,The open house is designed to
acquaint the student with the fa-
cilities of the school.
Other facilties, independent of
the engineering school are also
open to visitors. The Phoenix Pro-
ject is conducting tours through
its facilities, which include a two-
million watt nuclear reactor, var-
ious laboratories and experiments,
and two hot caves where radio-
active materials are handled.
'Blue Glow'
The reactor is enclosed in a
* tank of water, leaving the actual
core of the reactor open to view.
Nuclear particles, escaping from
the core, enter the water at a
speed greater than that of light
in water, giving off a soft blue
glow as they slow down and illum-
inating the room with the Ceren-
kov radiation.
Also on North Campus is the'
cyclotron, another device known
to the public through its name, but
seen by few in its physical pres-
ence. Another North Campus dis-
play, of an effect partially de-
veloped at the University, will take
place in the Automotive Engineer-
ing Laboratory.
The department of nuclear en-
gineering is displaying the laser,
the "wonder" device that has been
used to cut through steel and to
weld adetached retina in a human
s eye.
Future plans for this phenomena
forecast a rising importance for it
in the field of communications.I
Theoretically, a laser beam can
carry thousands of telephone calls,
or radio programs, etc., simul-
taneously. Attempts have been
made to communicate with orbit-
ing astronauts with a laser. Its
greatest possible uses are seen in
space where there is no atmos-

phere to scatter the block of beam.
Many other displays will be open
on the central campus.
Bus service between the Engin.
Arch and the Institute of Science
and Technology is provided every
half hour. Information stands have
been set up at both locations.

The board wound up its hearings yesterday on the petitions
from several unions on their rights to be selected as bargaining
units for University non-academic employes. The petitions have
been heard throughout the last month under Public Act 379, an
amendment to the Hutchinson Labor Act, which permits union
representation for state employes. The board will not decide on
what units to divide the University employes into for several
months, Lemmer said.
STUDENT GOVERNMENT COUNCIL this week approved the
appointments of Mark Simons, '67, and Richard Handel, '67, as

"I am troubled by many of the
aspects of our present draft pol-
icy," Sen. Philip A. Hart (D-
Mich) said yesterday at a rally
sponsored by the Student Legal
Defense Committee.
Hart called for a new "system
of broad national service to sup-
plement the service one could give
his country through the armed
forces. None disagree that a Peace
Corps worker in a remote village
is making a significant contribu-
tion to his country at some per-

as held to true in other areas of foreign or

The rally was held to raise
money for the defense of those
students who were reclassified as a
result of their sit-in on the Ann
Arbor Draft Board in October.
"I have serious questions about
the fairness and equity the present
concept of deferment for those

Center Formed To Find XN

To Put New Knowledge To Use

"There is a large and rapidly
growing gap between the creation
of new knowledge by scientific -re-
search and the full use of this new
knowledge,' stated a proposal for
the establishment of a Center for
Research on the Utilization of
Scientific Knowledge issued in
January of 1964.
The importance of the problem
was recognized by an all-univer-
sity committee, appointed by for=
mer Vice President for Academic
Affairs Roger Heyns, to explore
the responsibility of the University
in regards to the diffusion and
utilization of new knowledge. The
new center was created by an
action of the Regents in July, 1964;
as a part of the Institute for So-
cial Research.
Floyd Mann was appointed di-
rector of the new center, and is
now working with almost 40 pro-
fessional staff members.
Wasteful Gap
"This widening gap between the
creation of knowledge and its full
use is wasteful and is depriving

society of the potential benefitsf
of the new knowledge. This de-'
privation is greatest.in those fields+
in which scientific research has1
most recently been applied, name-1
ly, the health and social sciences,"
Mann said.
"The lag in the use of new+
knowledge has particularly serious
consequences for the s o c i a 1
sciences," he continued. "Society
generally can appreciate the value
of new knowledge created by re-
search only when this knowledge1
is put 'to constructive use and1
when it benefits all of society or,
at least important segments of it.
The problem is to make the value+
of such social science research
more evident."
Mann went on to say that "re-
search to discover the principles;
and factors affecting the utiliza-
tion of scientific knowledge falls
within the domain of the social
sciences. In spite of the import-
ance of this problem, there has
been very little research devoted
to it.
Reason for Lack
"One reason for this is probably
the youth of the social sciences; a

Mann said that one of the cen-
ter's goals will be to provide "an
attractive, supportive and flexible
base from which its staff mem-
bers, interested faculty members
from departments and professional
schools and nonuniversity affiliat-
ed personnel can work together
freely on problems of mutual con-
"It is predictable that tradition-
al divisions of labor and even
traditional university demarca-
tions among departments and
schools may have to be re-examin-
ed or restructured to meet some
of the principle objectives of the
new center, Mann said.
Train Staff
Mann said that it was realized
from the outset that the new cen-
ter would have to train and de-
velop its own staff, both because
there are at present few people
with the necessary mixture of
skils, and because those that do
have the skills usually command
salaries much higher than uni-
versities offer.
