AHC Protests Fee Hike

Assembly House Council unani-
mously passed a resolution yes-
terday protesting the methods
employed in setting a $34 room
and board increase in University
residence halls.
The action by AHC follows the
passage of. a similar motion last
T h u r s d a y by Interquadrangle
Council. The IQC measure re-
quested the housing office to pre-
pare a detailed explanation of the
recent room and board rate hike.
The hike was supposed to be
ratified by a housing directors
board, which includes the AHC
chairman. But the delay in re-
ceiving state funds here created

uncertainty as to what the final
residence hall budget would be un-
til June. By that time, the hous-
ing board was not convenable.
The motion proposed by AHC
President Maxine Loomis, '65, was
presented to the Assembly at their
last meeting Aug. 31, but a final
vote was delayed until yesterday.
The motion states that "al-
though the increase has been just-
ified by the vice-president in
charge of business and finance as
necessary, this in no way releases
his office from the Regents' By-
law which places his decision sub-
ject to the approval of the Resi-

dence Hall Board of Governcrs."
"Further action of AHC will not
be directed toward protesting this
past proceeding of administrative
action, but will be based upon a
resolve that such confusion of
authority should not happen in:
the future," .Miss Loomis said.

'No Secrets'

tion from our allies-which makes
them angry, and from our own
people--which results in their be-
ing fooled," Prof. Edward Teller
of the University of California,
Davis, said here Sunday.
Teller, an American physicist
who played a key role in nuclear
bomb development, predicted after.
the lecture that "secrecy and the
iron curtain will disappear to-
"If we drop oUr secrecy, it will
induce the Russians to drop

Teller also commented on the
possibility of detecting nuclear
explosions, which is unlikely if
the explosion is small and takes
place in outer space or under-
ground where it probably could
not be distinguished from a smaP'
In speaking of "Operation Plow-
share," the projected attempts to
use nuclear explosions for man-
kind's benefit, Teller said: "An in-
strument is' neither" good nor bad:

He elaborated on the numerous
practical and technical uses to
which atomic explosions could b
put in digging canals, mining, de-
salinating sea water, producing
neutrons for experiments, creat-
ing new elements, propelling
spaceships, and building a space

degree program in medical illus-

The University will be one of

a program. Prof. Gerald Hodge of
the medical- center said yesterday.
He pointed out that the presence
of the , architecture and design
college on campus, offers resources
which -are unavailable at other
schools. "We are also able to offer
study in working with medical
illustration as used, on television,"
he said. The medical center uses
television very extensively in its
teaching programs.
Vital Role
Art plays a vital role in a doc-
tor's education, an article on med-
ical illustration appearing in a
Johns Hopkins publication stated.
"The step-by-step illustration .f
medical technique is an integral
part of teaching medicine."
Hodge explained that the Uni-
versity's new program will utilize
anatomy courses offered by the
medical school. "Illustrators have
to know almost as much about
anatomy as the doctor," he said.
"We're also offering a course in
casting and molding (moulage) as
part of the program.
"Twvo outstanding authorities in
this area will conduct' this work-
Irvin G. Riemann, director of the
Exhibits Museum, and George.
Marchand, artist for the museum."
The history of medical art goes
back thousands of years, Hodge
said. "Prehistoric paintings of
medical procedure have been
found on cave walls. Artists, in
fact,. have often been ahead of
doctors in studying anatomy.
Leonardo da Vinci is the 'father'
of anatomical drawing. His work
was authoritative for centuries.
Michelangelo, Rembrant and
Durer were all the leading -anat-
omists of their times."

U' Constructs Atomic Bubble Chamber

Scientists at Willow Run laboratories have completed construction
of one of the world's largest bubble chambers.
Designed and built with a $700,000 Atomic Energy Commission
grant, the chamber will be used for the study of subatomic particles
at the Argonne National Laboratory near Chicago.
The world's first bubble chamber was built at the University
in the early fifties. Its inventor, Prof. Donald A. Glaser, now at the
University of California, Berkeley, received the 1960 Nobel Prize in
physics for developing the instrument.
The idea for the chamber popped up without warning. Glaser
was watching the foaming action nf an uncapped bottle of beer and.
theorized that the foam was caused by particles of matter from the
atmosphere assisted by heat near the bottle. He thought the same.
sort of foaming principle could be used to study subatomic particles
from accelerators, often. called atom smashers. These particles could
be shot through a liquid which would produce bubbles which could
be photographed.J
The University's Phoenix Project, which sponsors research with
private funds, was interested in the idea and put up $1,500 for a trial.
It worked.
