Van Raaphorst broke the score-
less deadlock by kicking a 40-yard

second quarter. An Indiana fumble
on the second play after the next
kickoff opened the door, and the
Bucks went 23 yards in five plays.

Diamond Importer Finds Gem-Bearing Mine Abroad

A new business-Robert Haack
Diamond Importers - quietly
opened a branch office recently
at 504 First National Building to
wholesale and retail diamond
Behind the move are stories of
two Milwaukee ex-marines' trips.
into South American jungles.
The trips led to discovery of
an estimated $11,000,000 gold
field, three rich diamond bear-
ing fields the pair staked claim
to, plus high adventure. Its "in-
gredients" were silent, deadly
river whirlpools, tangles with
deadly piranha fishaattack by a
tiger, plane crashes-and death.
The adventurers are Robert
Haack, 34, principal owner of the
diamond importing firm, and his
brother, Donald E., 29.
Shows Diamonds


Haack, who was in Ann Ar-
bor this past week with more
than $120,000 worth of diamonds
in his pockets, told the reason
for successive trips into un-
mapped jungle areas between
1954 and this year.
He formed the importing busi-
ness 13 years ago in Milwaukee
and purchased diamonds from
the internationally-known De
Beers Diamond Syndicate of
London, which controls 95 per
cent of the world's output of
"I decided to circumvent this
source by setting up my own
diamond mine," Haack said, ex-
plaining that De Beers yearly
allots a designated number of
diamond carats to each country.
Haack now mines industrial dia-
monds and gems, cuts and mar-
kets them.

completed last week that win be
used in surface mining opera-
tions amid a 7,000-acre diamond
field the Haack firm discovered
along the Ireng River and is
operating under a 50-yearvlease
from the Venezuelan govern-
Haack said leases he has on
two other diamond fields in Bra-
zil and British Guiana are to be
dropped because the fields are
inaccessible by land.
Find 500 Diamonds
Worth of the diamond hold-
ings was proved in 1954 when
Haack and his brother returned
from their first South American
trip with 500 diamonds. Since
that time "thousands" of the
gems have been uncovered, many
of them up to three carats, which
are being cut in New York and
Output of the Venezuelan mine
is expected to be hiked several
hundred per cent with the $800,-
000 self-propelled dredge that
will handle 1,000 tons of gravel
per hour separating the diamonds
from the gravel. Haack estimates
that each ton contains an aver-
age of one-third of a carat.
Thus, it is possible that more
than 300 carats per hour could
be uncovered.
This prospect-the outgrowth
of Haack's demand for an inde-
pendent business operation and
the ability to follow through-is
the result of seven years of plan-
ning between 1946 and 1954.
Haack studied Spanish in prep-
aration for his initial South
American junket and gathered'
articles of diamond field finds,
pinpointing them tp fix the gen-
eral area for investigation.

unwanted noise in vehicles.
At our Ford Research and Engineering Center in Dearborn, engineers
have created a unique room without echoes, virtually duplicating the
perfect stillness that exists miles above the earth's surface,
The "Silent Room", as we call it, is a chamber utilizing fiber-glass
wedges as sonic "blotters" to soak up noise emanating from subjects
undergoing developmental tests. In this acoustically sterile environ-
ment, electronic instruments seek out the source of vibrations,
rattles, rumbles and squeaks so that they can be eliminated in
This scientific approach to silence is but a tiny facet of'the many-
sided program of pure and applied research which goes on daily at
