Michigan's economic growth
in' the next decade will largely
depend on the use of state uni-
versity resources to infuse new
technologies into the state's in-
dustrial base, a report released
today by the Industrial Devel-
opment Division (IDD) of the
Institute of Science and Tech-
nology states.
The study, "A Comparison
of the Research Patterns of
Michigan Universities w i t h
State and National Research
and Industrial Trends," was
written by Frank R. Bacon and
Kenneth E. Bayer of IDD.

versities' research emphases,

last night moved to redirect and
concentrate its efforts in specific
areas of student off-campus hous-

Realizing that its present ef-
forts were too wide-spread to give
proper consideration to any one
proposal, the Council decided to
concern itself -with action that
conceivably would result in posi-
tive benefits before the upcoming
March 1 elections.
Over the hesitancy of som--

Adopt Master's Bioengine(

This time two years ago, a
bioengineering program aimed at
the engineer, the qualified student
in science and the medical student
was adopted by the University's
Rackham School of Graduate
Studies. According to Prof. Glenn
V. Edmonson, dean of the engi-
neering college and one of the
main coordinators of the program,
it was designed to cause "an in-
teraction between two equally
strong, equally capable practicing
professions, both of which have
the objective of serving society,
but in different ways."
In a speech delivered to the
National Electronics Conference,
Bdmonson stated that three rea-
sons might be cited for recent
decisions of American universities
to study this interdisciplinary ef-
fort and to train students for
careers in bioengineering.
First "it must be recognized
that the engineer has evolved in
the last fifteen to twenty years
from a person capable of dealing
with essentially steady-state phe-
nomena to a person capable of
understanding and dealing with
complex, nonlinear systems that
are always in a state of transient
The engineer finds that he be-
haves in many ways similar to
the complex, nonliving systems
with which he deals. He finds
that his methods of analysis are
applicable to biological systems.
"Secondly, the rapid techno-

logical advances that have been
made in instrumentation, largely
electrically oriented, have en-
couraged the biologist to acceler-
ate his research." Under this sec-
ond' point, Edmonson mentioned
the electron-microscope as being
a particularly important develop-
Third, said Edmonson, comes
the "immediate pressure of our
man-in-space projects" which
"have stimulated a very close col-
laboration between the engineer,
the medical doctor, the physiolo-
bist, and the psychologist that
few other projects in the past
have fostered."
There is, he added, "no doubt
that the opportunities :or pai ici-
pation by competent bioengineers
are expanding."
By way of illustration of the
possibilities of the program, Ed-
monson cited a civil engineer at
the University who is engaged in
cardiovascular research, although
his particular engineering field is
hydraulics. Edmonson also de-
scribed chemical engineers busy
with research connected with
chemical processes in tae psysio-
logical system, and also with bac-
teriological problems associated
with drug manufacturing and food
Going further on the same sub-
ject, Edmonson maintained that
the faculty of the department of
electrical engineering have been
establishing a world-wide reputa-
tion in signal detection, of which
one facet is sensory intelligence.

The first convocation was held
on a Thursday night. The report
stated that the attendence at a
future one might be increased if
it was held on a Friday night or
late in the afternoon on a week

convocation to become a "date-
