n Marking State Growth

Special To The Daily
RT HURON - "No matter

state, growth, no one quite

.g it," University President

ter Talks


William E. Porter, professor of
urnalism at the State University
Iowa discussed "Foreign Atti-
ides Tpward the United States
nd the People-to-People Fallacy"
esterday in a speech sponsored
y the journalism department.
-"rter said that some Americans,
% foreign aid policy on the
sumption that if people are giv-
a things,; they will necessarily
ike" the giver.
This confusion is due to the
,ilure to differentiate between
ie formation of two different
nds of attitudes-situational at-
tudes and culture-bound atti-
.des, Porter continued.
Situational attitudes are those
hich are due mainly to geograph-
al, historical, and economic re-
tionships between nations," Por-
r said.
The change of situational atti-
ides depends on the change in
ie situation, Porter continued.
qo amount of Soviet sweet-talk
n cause Americans to change
eir minds about the Berlin sit-
tion," he said. If the USSR were
withdraw troops behind the Pol-
h border, there would be a
ange in attitude.
Culture-bound attitudes are oft-
i stereotyped opinions which are,
ually comparative, Porter said.
hen questioning foreign students
ho had been in the United States
om six to eight weeks, Porter
plained that he found that they
iaracterized Americans as "rich,
aterialistic, loud, happy, and
ildike," but also found a. few
ss negative characteristics.
After longer periods in the
nited States there was a char-
teristic tendency away from this
ereotype, Porter said.
Culture bound, attitudes, can be
fanged by communications and
people-to-people relationships,
it these attitudes- are 'frequently
perficial, Porter said.Headded
Lat a fallacy exists which says
at these relationships can alter
ion-to-nation relationships to
iy appreciable degree.

Russian Education
He said the nation was "dis-
mayed" when the Russians fired
their first satellite, and shortly
thereafter a group of University
scientists met to analyze the sta-
tus of Russian higher education-
how far ahead of the United
States they must have been to do
something we weren't prepared to
do." Then they explained what
we would have to do to catch up.
"We had to come a long, long
He said that the University was
"at the center" of the operations
that eventually launched Col.
John H. Glenn into orbit last
week, and he related the "long
years of effort and worry" it took
to hold the campus together in
that time, "working as we were in
,old and inadequate laboratories
running the constant risk of losing
Need Funds
President Hatcher implied that
not enough money went into the
support of higher education in
proportion to the space program.
"The education of those who will
carry on our advances in science
must take a high priority," he
said. Higher than any space ef-
fort. We dare not slumber or
sleep, for too quickly it can be-
come too late."
,Earlier in the program, Univer-
sity Executive Vice-President Mar-
vin L. Niehuss and Vice-President
for Business and Finance Wilbur
K. Pierpont presented a slide pro-
gram on the University's needs.
Pierpont cited a recent study
which. showed that only three oth-
er states among 50 have appropri-
ated a smaller percent increase in
appropriations since 1959-60. Mi-
chigan appropriations have gone
up seven per cent, while others
have averaged 22 per cent, he
He said that, as a result of this
a smaller faculty is teaching more
students and improvements in
buildings and teaching materials
have been deferred. -

WEATHER RESEARCH-University meteorologists will aid in
the analysis of data collected by the Tiros satellites. Specific
attention will be paid to the classification of cloud patterns and
their regularities.
'U' Weathermen Analyze
Tiros Cloud Photographs

A group of University meteorol-
ogists are analyzing part of the
information sent down by the Ti-
ros satellites.
Under contract with the Unit-
ed States Weather Bureau, the
group is trying to learn more about
cloud patterns from the Tiros van-
tage point, 500 miles high.
"This does not have an immedi-
ate value in helping predict the
weather from day to day," Prof.
Edward S. Epstein, head of the
project, explains. "We're trying to
classify cloud patterns, and find
out the cause of pattern regulari-
Not a Spy
The Tiros is not a "spy in the
sky," Prof. Epstein says.
"From 500 miles up, we don't
take a picture with a good surface
detail. Even if we should, the
chances are only fifty-fifty that
the cameras will be facing the
earth. In fact, we're making all
information from the Tiros satel-
lites available to anyone includ-
ing Russia."
The satellites provide more in-
formation. than can now be an-
alyzed. In the project laboratory
on the fifth floor of East Engi-
neering Bldg. is a large, thick book
on radiation measurement graphs
of the earth by Tiros It.
Selected Orbits
"NASA scientists have record-
ed here, information from a few

selected orbits of just one satel-
lite using just one part of the
spectrum," Prof. Epstein explains.
"One Tiros satellite lasts for
about three or four months and
makes more than ;,thousand or-
bits. We tax our computers just
recording the information. Most of
the information has yet to be
analyzed, and we still can use the
rest of the spectrum for gaining
new data."
Prof. Epstein says "the Tiros
project has been more successful
than we expected. The pictures are
clear and already surprising cloud
pattern regularities have been
photographed. {Within the year, a
new Nimbus satellite with many
improvements over the Tiros sat-
ellites is scheduled to go up."
NSF Grants
To Aid Work
On Automata
The National Science Founda-
tion has granted the University
$46,000 for 'a two-year research
project on "Theory of Automata."
The purpose of the project, un-
der the direction of Prof. Arthur
W. Burks of the philosophy de-
partment, is to study and derive
formulas for machines capable of
performing logical steps.
The research should yield def-
initions of mathematical com-
puters called "automata."
Members of the Logic of Com-
puters group formulate mathe-
matical expressions for the logic'
of a machine's structure, Richard
Laing, group member commented.
He said that some of these for-
mulas will be feasible for ma-
chines and some will not. The
group will have to sort these out.
It is hoped that it will be possible
to devise a test to determine which
machines will be feasible and a
method by which these machines
can be pictured from the formulas.
Laing maintains that this pro-
ject will be useful because math-
ematicians and scientists can
simply write the formulas for what
he wants a machine to do and the
tests the group hopes to devisej
will tell if such a machine is pos-

The Metropolitan Opera Com-
pany recently awarded Edward A.
Baird, Grad, of the music school
a third place in its regional au-
Baird, a bass-baritone, explained
that his region, one of the 12 in
the national competition, covers
a six-state area including Michi-
gan, Ohio, Pennsylvania, Mary-
land, New York and Ontario.
"The inclusion of New York
made this region a particularly
hard one," he commented.
Baird was the only man to place
in the regional held in Cleveland
last week. Although he received
a $100 prize and a third place
rating, Baird' called his award
,"primarily prestige" since only the
first place winner goes on to na-
tional competition.
"I don't intend to enter the pro-
fessional field, but will seek a
position at the university level
where I can double as a teacher
and a part-time performer," he
"There are more openings for
the part-time performer now than
ever before," he added.

Baird is well known to Ann Ar-
bor audiences, having appeared
numerous times as a soloist with
the University Choirs and the
Michigan Chorale. He is presently
working on his fifth major role
for the University opera depart-
ment and will portray Falstaff in
the spring production of "The
Merry Wives of Windsor."
He was seen last summer as
Figaro in the department's pro-
duction of "The Marriage of
Figaro," and as a guest soloist in
"Elijah" at the National Music
Camp in Interlochen.
