"We know how to improve air-
craft safety-we're finally making
improvements," Prof. Paul M.,
Fitts of the psychology department
said yesterday concerning Project
Beacon, the recently announced
air traffic control program.
The 14-point program, released
Sunday by President John F. Ken-
nedy, calls for the use of alti-
tude and identity reporting bea-
con transponders, extensive use
of military control systems, and'
Federal Aviation Administration'
control over planes flying above
24,000 feet in mountainous areas,
14,500 feet in the airlanes or 8,000
feet over congested areas.
Other suggestions included se-
gregation by speed of airlanes and
terminal areas and a speed limit
of 230 miles an hour for plands
under the altitude of 8,000 feet.
"The beacon transponder, a de-
vice which receives a radar pulse
and automatically responds with
a signal indicating the plane's
identification and altitude would
be a great aid to increased safety,"
Fitts, a former researcher in the
human engineering aspects of air
traffic control systems, said.
Could Avert Collisions
"If the beacon system had been
in general use a year ago, the
air crash over New York City, last
December, probably would not
The Americans Committed to
World Responsibility will have a
petition in the fishbowl today and
tomorrow asking the University to
establish a credit course on the
problems of peace and 'war.

"There is really no such thing
as defense in the nuclear age,"
Donald Keys, program director
for SANE Nuclear Policy Inc., said
Keys, in a lecture on "Mankind
In Suicide," explained the holo-
cast of a nuclear war and then
noted that "we must make sure
that the deterrent doesn't become
Membership in the nuclear club
is "getting out of hand," he noted.
Any reactor which is used for
peaceful purposes will build up
by-products which can be used in
the production of atomic weapons,
Both Sides Stand Firm
Both sides are standing firm,
but neither believes the other's
willingness "to commit national
suicide." Thus the governments
take extra risks to convince the
world of their firmness, and it
amounts to a "Russian roulette
with nuclear bombs," he said.
One of the biggest breakthroughs
in this "vicious circle of increas-
ing insecurity" is the agreement
on general principles for disarm-
ament negotiations between the
United States and the Soviet Un-
Under this agreement, all na-
tions would have virtually total
disarmament, retaining only small
arms to maintain order within
the country, with the United Na-
tions settling international dis-
putes, he explained.
The major problem between the
East and West on disarmament
is the "reciprocal paranoia." The
Russians are worried that inspec-
tion will be used to supplement
United States intelligence efforts
and the United States believes
that without inspection there is
no assurance of disarmament.
Comparing the United States
and Russia to "the mongoose and
the cobra," Keys said that inter-
national politics should be more
.than a reaction to Soviet maneu-

have happened, because the plane
controller at La Guardia airport
could have warned the jet not
under his control of the danger,
knowing that the planes were at
the same altitude.
The beacons will cost a maxi-
mum of $500 apiece, according to
the Project Beacon committee.
"We can no longer depend on
pilots to avert midair collisions
with their small 'cone' of vision
from the cockpit of the plane."
Fitts concluded. "I would definitely
recommend the FAA sponsor long
range research, projects, especially
investigating the possibilities of
computers, in addition to their
present short range plans."

vers. We should regain the "moral
initiative," he said.
Other questions should not
be subject to involvement in the
arms race. If they are, the ex-
ploration of outer space could
change from man's greatest ad-
venture to his "prelude to an obit-
uary," Keys noted.

The basis for
tion sciences is interdisciplinary
in nature with foundations pri-
marily in five bordering disci-
plines: mathematics; electrical
engineering; physiology; psychol-

The eight major areas of study
currently emphasized in the pro-

mathematical linguistics, psycho-
linguistics and semantics.
