'U' Tests Back Bulbous Bow

Ackley Puts Employment
Before Balanced Budget


A series of tests made recently
by the University's naval architec-
ture and marine engineering de-
partment has shown that a new
type of bow, shaped as a bulbous
snout protruding below the water-
line, can reduce a ship's "drag" by
more than 18 per cent.
The new bow, which was invent-
ed and announced last year by
Prof. Takao Inui of Tokyo Univer-
sity, was tested on an oceano-
g r a p h i c research ship model,
where it also doubled as an ob-
servation chamber.
Reduced Requirements
The reduction in drag, which is
another name for bow wave re-
sistance, means a corresponding

reduction in power and fuel re-
quirements for the actual ship,
which is now being built by a Se-
attle naval architecture firm.
The bulbous bow reduces drag
by almost eliminating the ship's
bow wave, a major resistance force
a ship must overcome. It does this
by setting up a "negative" wave
system which cancels the natural
bow wave set up by the ship's hull.
The new bow has been called a
breakthrough in ship design. It
has been considered a major ac-
complishment to reduce ship re-
sistance by only a few per cent. It
means that a ship could reach its

The Inui bow has been tested
only once on an open sea. It was
tried on a Japanese inter-island
ferry and then removed. Since the
bow's development the University
has been conducting a long range
research program on the applica-
tion of the bow to high speed cargo
ships and other vessels.
HRB Receives
Top Ranking
For Project
The Student Government Coun-
cil Human Relations Board earned
first place ranking in the Demo-
cratic Campus Award for "Project
Welcome," carried on last semes-
The award was presented by the
United States National Studentc
Asociation and the Anti-Defama-
tion League of B'nai B'rith.
"Project Welcome" consisted of
circulating a petition which read,
''we would like to reassure our
fellow students, our- landlords and
our neighbors that we would wel-
come into our neighborhood,
apartment or rooming house any
responsible persons who meet the
usual requirements without regard
to their race, the color of their
skin, the manner in which they
worship or the part of, the world
from which they come."
More than 2000 students signed
the statement of welcome.
Extension Unit
Boosts Tuition
As a consequence of the tuition
hike last spring, the Extension
Service has also found it necessary
to boost its fees, effective with this
The basic charge has been in-
creased from $18 per semester
credit hour or contact hour to $20.
Correspondence course fees were
raised to the same amount.
Levies for certificate courses and
citizenship training courses have
not been changed, however.

WASHINGTON - Full employ-
ment should be put ahead of bal-
ancing the budget, Prof. Gardner
Ackley of the economics depart-
ment, now a member of President
John F. Kennedy's Council of1
Economic Advisors, indicated re-
Prof. Ackley said he agrees with
Kennedy's opinion, voiced in a
speech last May at Yale Univer-
sity, that a balanced budget is not
necessarily a good thing.
"There are times when it is ap-
propriate to have deficits and
times when it is appropriate to
have surpluses," he declared.
Must Use Resources
"When you have unused nation-
al resources, it is a mistake to have
a balanced budget.
"When you have full employ-
ment and a threat of inflation,
then the budget should be bal-
anced," Prof. Ackley added.
He indicated that if Americans
would consider the budget care-
fully they would realize federal
budgets are not the same as house-'
hold budgets and "you can't lay'
down a simple rule about balanc-
ing them."
Cites Italy
Prof. Ackley pointed to the Ital-
ian economy which he had been
studying the year previous to his
appointment as a Ford Founda-
tion fellow as an example of an
economy that has grown without
considerable inflation, but with
budget deficits.
While the Italian postwar boom
has had a bigger push from nat-
ural forces than from government
planning, it still shows that gov-
ernment deficits need not be cor-
related with inflation in the mindst
of Americans, he said.-
"The Italians have had recur-
ring deficits without inflation, andt
their economy has done remark-
ably well since World War II. They1
have allowed their money supplyt
to expand without inflation," hel
Clear Thinking R
"They haven't been handicapped
by old-fashioned preconceptionsi
about balanced budgets. In fact,
they have set up their budgets in1
such a way that it is hard to tell<
whether the budget is balanced or
not and nobody seems to care,"4
Prof. Ackley added.I
