neering Building was authorized.

The state has allocated $7 mil-
lion for University construction

be used for the cyclotron labora-
tory and the Physics-Astronomy-

President's Welcome
I extend a cordial welcome to the students who are begin-
ning new programs of study at The University of Michigan.
May I remind our freshmen that since they are spending
four or more years at the University they proceed immediately
to lay their academic foundation soundly; that they explore all
aspects of the University, curricular and extracurricular; and
that they take the long look at what they expect from life
before deciding how the University can best help them reach
their goals.
Best wishes for success and happiness in your life and work
at The University of Michigan.
