Wolverines Collect Two Big Ten Champion


Special To The Daily
LAFAYETTE-Michigan's track-
men had to wait around all after-
noon for Rod Denhart to break
the conference pole vault record
here yesterday, but there was
nothing that could have made
them happier.
An hour and twenty minutes
before, the Wolverines had pulled
off what an ecstatic Coach Don
Canham called a fantastic upset,
polishing off indoor champion
Wisconsin and sewing up their
second straight Big Ten outdoor
track title.
Michigan, which Canham fig-
ured "didn't have a chance" to
score more than 35 points, piled up
a rousing 48% points while Michi-

The double loss, combined with
Illinois' 6-2, 1-0 sweep of Iowa,

Nike Cajun Launches
'U Instrument Pack

Cajun sounding rocket soared aloft
from this Virginia launching sta-
tion yesterday, carrying a Univer-
sity instrument package up to a
height of 83 miles.
The package is designed to.
measure the amounts of atomic
and molecular oxygen and nitro-
gen in the upper atmosphere.
Research engineer Edward J.
Schaefer directed the work by
the High Altitude Engineering
Laboratory on the project. He re-
ported that "a preliminary look
Team Installs
Plastic Heart
In 'Living Dog
CLEVELAND ()-A five-man
team of medical researchers at
the Cleveland clinic foundation
has successfully replaced a living
heart on a dog with one made
of plastic and driven. by com-
pressed air.
"Our work is still in an ex-
perimental phase," Dr. William J.
Kolff explained in an interview
last night. The Dutch-born medi-
cal scientist is directing the work
of the clinic and envisions its
practical application to humans
"within a few years." .
The first plastic heart experi-
-ment with a dog was achieved in
1958, Dr. Kolff said, and could
be termed a success. The most
recent experiment, earlier this
year, permitted a dog to remain
alive for more than a day.
The dog was able to perform all
normal functions-barking, drink-
ing water and response to petting
-when the artifical heart was
The dogs all died, however, Dr.
Kolff said, "because a blood clot
formed somewhere on the artifical
heart, or on an artifical valve.
"Our major problem now has to
do with the formation of thrombus
on plastic. A member of our staff,
Dr. Velimir Mirkovitch, has been
studying why thrombosis occurs
on plastic. If we can find out why
this occurs, perhaps we can avoid

"the purpose of the experiment
was to develop a mass spectro-
meter to measure the composition
of the upper atmosphere.
"The spectra we obtained closely
paralleled what we expected it to
be," he continued. "But of course
it will take time to analyze it.
The instrument used was a
"Paul Massenfilter," named after
the German scientist who in-
vented it.;
Named After Scientist
The "Massenfilter" operates on
the intrinsic mass differences be-
tween equal numbers of gas mole-
The filter itself acts to separate
different gases by the process of
removing or adding electrons. By
collecting the charged gases thus
differentiated from one another it
is possible to tell the atmosphere

like filter had been suspended.

In use' on the rocket, the
amounts of collected gases were

One of the major problems in
the operation of the device Schaf-
er cited was "how to create the
ions and direct them into the field
properly" - especially in as small
a carrier as, the Nike Cajun.
Prevent Gases
In addition, in order to prevent
gases from the earth's surface
from stickin gto the filter, riding
up with it, and thus producing a
misleading measurement, the filter
must be loaded in a vacuum cham-
The University High Altitude
Engineering Group hopes even-
tually to be able to develop the,
filter to a point where it can be,
produced cheaply and simply.i
This would make it useful for sur-
vey measurements,;
First, however, they will take
readings at noon and at midnight
to see if the difference in sun-
light causes any change in the
composition of the atmosphere.

Asks Sober
Prof. Paul W. McCracken of the
School of Business Administra-
tion, commented recently, in an
address before the Sixth Annual
Economic Conference, on what he
called "the need for a little more
sober recognition of our problems."
Prof. McCracken continued that
"At the same time, this new mood
of realism must not go as far as
to obscure underlying basic devel-
opments that should strengthen
our ability to achieve a stronger
Prof. McCracken cited three
reasons as to why he felt that the
"substantial optimism" of people
regarding the so-called "Sizzling
Sixties" ought to be curbed.
The disappointing course of
economic developments, persistent
high unemployment and the re-
versal of our role in the interna-
tional economy, were cited as rea-
sons for the necessity of this
change in attitude.
Elaborating on each of these
factors, McCracken explained that
expansion in business activity has
been weak and the behavior of
"leading indicators" has been poor.
Further, "the creation ofknew job
opportunities has not kept pace
with the growth in the labor
for ce"
Finally, due to the reversal of
our role in the international econ-
omy, "the American economy and
the dollar seemed to have slipped
from grace."
Prof. McCracken said that a
healthier business climate would
make the US a "more attractive
place for investment of capital
than has been true in recent years,
reducing the heavy net outflow of
private capital."
He described a large role in the
economy for new products; espe-
cially in stemming the tide of the
dollar outflow.
"We are slowly gaining an un-
derstanding about the sources of
economic progress," Prof. Mc-
Cracken commented, "and we are
finding that more investment or
abundant natural r e s o u r c e s,
though desirable and important,
are not the key ingredients. The
mainsprings of economic progress
are more subtle matters, consider-
ations less defined and measured."

ADDRESSES CONFERENCE-Rep. Carroll Newton (R-Delton)
praised the University's achievements and commented on its
financial woes in a luncheon speech to the, delegates of the Con-
ference on the University yesterday.
Crippon .Discusses Use
Of Conference on 'U'


Miesel Cites Values, Purposes of Art

The Conference on the Univer-
sity served as a useful instrument
in breaking down artificial bar-
riers and examining in depth some
of the current anl long-range
problems of the University, David
Crippen of the Phoenix Memorial
Project said in his summation re-
marks yesterday.
Over 150 administrators, faculty
members and students assembled
yesterday in the Union to discuss
in informal workshops "The Uni-
versity as an Elite Institution."
Topics of Discussion
The topics of discussion included
problems of admission, the rela-
tionship of the University with the
state, the responsibility of the
faculty, the role of the student,
research, the honors program,
buildings and physical plant, cur-
riculum and methodology, the ad-
ministration and counseling.
One of the pervasive themes in
the discussions was, the concern
for breaking down communica-
tions between faculty and students.
The general consensus of the dele-
gates was that it was the respon-
sibility of both the faculty and
students to initiate programs.
Suggest Methods
Some methods suggested for
bridging this gap were to have
organized seminars on the fresh-
man level, more tutorials, better
training and more attention paid
to the teaching fellows, more par-
ticipating in University affairs by
newer members of the faculty and
interdisciplinary seminars.
Other proposals by the delegates
included more involmement of
ter counseling with the emphasis

Acting City Editor
Highlighting the proceedings
during the Conference on the Uni-
versity yesterday, Rep. Carroll
Newton (R-Delton) praised the
University for its "world-wide rep-
utation and recognition as a lead-
er in the field of education."
But hetcalled upon the Univer-
sity to set up a revolving fund fr
research in order to receive roy-
alties on the many projects and
developments it contributes to the
world. "These funds could benefit
you later."
Speaking on the "University's
Responsibility to the State," he
said that the Legislature was well-
aware of what the University is
doing for Michigan. He noted that
its research facilities did much to
attract industry to Michigan.
Problem of Enrollment
However, in addressing himself
to the more controversial problem
of enrollment. "The p r o b e m
evolves in large part from the fact
that the appropriations have not
been as large as we all might
wish," he said. "Thus we check
into areas of expense and look for
ways to cut them down.
"Here we come to the dispute
over out-of-state students. The
Legislature does not necessarily
believe they should be barred, but
rather that they should absorb
more of their own costs."
He added that the Legislature's
concern with out-of-state stu-
dents was not universal, but rath-
er "whether we are assuming too
big a burden from certain other
Quality Education
He cited both New York and
New Jersey, which "do not offer
the quality education that Michi-
gan does," relying Instead upon'
other states to absorb their many
college age students.
He said that the Legislature has
no particular opposition to stu-
dents from other nations. In fact,
they welcome the opportunity to
"lend them a hand."
He added that recent studies in-
dicate that Michigan supports
public education to a greater de-
gree than almost any other state,
but that that fact did not necs-
sarily mean they deserve more of
the tax dollar than they presently
Rising Defeat
"There is an increasing resist-
ance to any new taxes," he noted.
"We see this in the rising defeat
of local bond issues."
Newton called upon the Univer-
sity to "keep up with the needs of
education itself." He said that the
University must constantly assist

"Art is a document of the spirit;
a philosophy of life, as well as
an arrangement of lines and
colors," Prof. Victor H. Miesel of
the history of art department says.
The public "may be reacting to
modern art in a far more direct,
honest fashion than the so-called
critic-the sophisticated lover of
art; they may really understand it
better than the critics.
Many of today's artists chal-
lenge everything we stand for. It's
not a question of beautiful form or
good composition, but rather of
the philosophy of the artists.
These men are prophets. If they
