rojector Loan To Promote

The loan of a multiplex pro-
jector to the civil engineering de-r
partment will make the complete1

the first time in classwork today.-
It was presented to the Univer-

Cites Means
Of Detectionf
Prof. Joseph A. Boyd of the3
electrical engineering department,
the director of the Institute of
Science and Technology, last night
cited several examples of the im-
portance of IST at the Annual
Service Award Banquet honoring
Uiversity employes.
Ie emphasized the current con-
nection with the Geneva disarma-
ment conference of IST's Seismic
Information and Analysis Center.
This center is studying possible
methods, vital to an inspection
program, for distinguishing and
detecting nuclear blasts, he said.
He showed a photograph of a
ruby maser, a tiny amplifier sim-
iar to a quartz radio crystal.
The advantage of this ruby ampli-,
ier is that it introduces no
"noise into the signals and for
thiskreason is usedin detecting
weak signals-it accomplished the
first detection of radio signals
from Saturn.
Prof. Boyd said that most of
the work of IST, which employs
'700 people, is centered at Willow
Run airport, although IST re-
searchers are also scattered about
the central campus.
At Willow Run, IST scientists
'may man eight or more Army and
Air Force planes in airborne radar
studies, while ground crews man
other radar installations, Prof.
Boyd said.
Infra-red Unit
However, he pointed out a new
importance of the infra-red rays
have been found superior to ra-
dar in the detection of intercon-
tinental ballistic missiles.
Prof. Boyd showed an infra-
red photograph of Manhattan not
taken by IST (all of the insti-
tute's infra-red photographs. are
classified) and a radar map of
Detroit. Both radar. and infra-
red photographs can be taken at
night from the air, he said.
The institute has analysis cen-
ters for all the infra-red and bal-
listic missile research done under

'U' Technician
University Technician William
O. Strauch finds himself in a
most peculiar position now.
He is the holder of a traffic
violation that may not take ef-
fet until October. At least that's
when it is dated: Oct. 11, 1961.
According to the ticket, the fine
must be paid within 72 hours after
violation, and municipal court of-
ficials could not comment on
whether or not Strauch has until
October to consider his actions.

Groups To Honor
'U' Law Students
Honor awards will be given to
79 University Law School stu-
dents today. They include*mem-
bers of Coif, national honorary
society for the top 10 per cent
of the third-year law class; edi-
tors of The Michigan Law Re-
view; winners of various schol-
arship awards; students writing
the best examination papers in a
course and students ranking in
the top of their class.

The operator then adjusts the
projector to approximate the line
of flight and altitude at which
the picture was taken and then
constructs a relief map from it.
The equipment will be used by
the civil engineering 113 class of
Prof. Berry to teach mapmaking.
"I have changed the course con-
tent to use the equipment. Pre-
viously, I could teach only the
edementary reduction process
which did not involve precision
optics," Prof. Berry said.
"Now the students can deter-
mine vertical elevation and con-
tour lines with the new equip-
Natural Resources
The multiplex machine will be
used in conjunction with the for-
estry department o the natural
resources school. As the machine
can be used by only one student
at a time, Prof. John Carow of the
forestry department is collqborat-
ing with Prof. Berry in scheduling
its use.
"This course is not restricted to
civil engineers," Prof. Berry noted.
"There are also foresters, geolo-
gists, and geographers in it."
Map Ice Fields
At the present time no research
propects are being conducted with
the aid of the machine. However,
Prof. James Zumberge of the geol-
ogy department has indicated he
may use the multiplex projector
to help map the ice fields of Ant-
artica, Prof. Berry said.
The loan of the machine is the
result of the concern of Abrams,
the head of an old areial map-
making firm in Lansing, about
the proper training of mapmakers.
"He has been heckling me for
five years as to why the Univer-
sity did not give a little more in-
struction in photogramity," Prof.
Berry explained.
"I told him that I did not have
the equipment, so he finally loan-
ed the machine to the University,"
he added.
Prof. Berry noted that this type
of machine was used in World
War II to map isolated or enemy
occupied areas. .
"This apparatus was the main-
stay of war mapping effort."'

The purpose of the study Is one
of social research, rather than' r
the purpose of predicting, Prof.
Converse said. Even if the data
could be processed in time, there
can be real shifts in the elector-
ate at the last minute.
The survey is not designed to
aid the political parties in plan-
ning future campaigns, although
the information is available to
both of them and the Center re-
ceives requests for data in specific
areas from political groups.
The statistics showed an in-
creased interest in the election in
all age groups.
'Generally Surprised'
"Our researchers and most
others are generally surprised at
the lack of information that
voters have," Prof. Converse said.
Two reasons for this,"he ex-
plained, are that the people con-
ducting the experiment are highly
interested in the subject and the
people they interview naturally
seemed uniformed in comparison,
and secondly, many political prob-
lems are too remote from people
so that other demands seem more
pertinent to their immediate lives.
The same apathy can be seen
in Europe also, so it is not a,
phenomenon of the United States
alone, he, said.
