Endorse Cyclotron in House

'Arts in

Upon the recommendation of
Rep. Louis C. Rabaut (D-Mich)
the House public works subcom-
mittee in Washington has en-
dorsed a $1.8 million request for
a University cyclotron-a device
to study heavy elements.
The cyclotron project is includ-
ed in a larger bill dealing with

making the Great Lakes deeper,
national flood control, public
works appropriations, and the
Atomic Energy Commission oper-
ating budget. Action in the House
Appropriations Committee is ex-
pected to take place Friday on the
whole bill.
"The University's fine scholastic
rating helped pass the bill in sub-

Indiana in Ninth, 7m6
Back-to-back doubles by .Bill Roman and Dave Brown, coupled
with a sacrifice fly by Joe Merullo in the ninth inning, gave Michigan
and relief pitcher Jack Mogk a 7-6 come-from-behind 'win over
Indiana yesterday in the rain at Ferry Field.
The Wolverines, who had trailed since the third inning, loaded
the bases with nobody out after Brown had chased home Roman with
the tying-run Then following Dick Syring's pop to first, Merullo
lifted his fy to center sending Brown home with the winning run.

Drug Law's
Dean Thomas Rowe of phar-
macy college testified on Thurs-
day before the Senate Subcommit-
tee on Antitrust and Monopoly.
The Subcommittee, which is now
investigating the drug industry,
heard Rowe testify that less than
one per cent of drugs now on, the
market are federally inspected.
Commenting on the hearings,
the dean said he disagreed with
"what I think is the majority
opinion of the committee. That is
why they Invited me down, so
that it wouldn't be a one-sided

absence, invited Rowe last Monday
to appear before the committee.)
Rowe announced, as he began
his testimony that "I am opposed
to the enforced use of generic
names by legislation, regulation,
or any means which would inter-
fere with the manufacturer's right
to insist on his trademarked drugs
being supplied when the physician
so specifies."
Brandname Controversy
Many have urged that doctors
prescribe drugs by their generic
name only, so druggists could fill
prescriptions with any of several
brandname drugs, instead of a
specified one. This week's hear-
ings are devoted to this issue.
Rowe testified that over five per
cent of drugs tested by the Food
and Drug, Administration "depart
in some significant manner from
labelled specifications."
Most violations concern mar-
ginal manufacturers who do not
have adequate safety procedures,
he added. Such manufacturers pro-
duce "few if any" trademarked
specialities, but depend instead on
research done by established firms,
marketing equivalent drugs at
cheaper rates.
Ineffective Law
'The Food and Drug Adminis-
tration cannot police these unethi-
cal operators properly," he pointed
out, adding that a law requiring
prescription of generic names only,
such as the subcommittee is re-
portedly considering, would greatly.
increase the volume of business
done by such operators.
At present the established firms
go to great lengths to prevent
"counterfeiting" of their products.
One company has designed a spe-
cial capsule which would be nearly
impossible for a competitor to

Marcereau appeared to settle

hird the roof fell in on him.

bill stands a good chance to get
passed because once approved by
the subcommittee, it usually gets
accepted by the full committee, he
Last month, Prof. David M.
Dennison, chairman of the physics
department, Prof. William C.
Parkinson, of the physics depart-
ment, Vice-President for Research
Ralph A. Sawyer, and Rep. George
Meader (R-Mich) urged Congress
to add the cyclotron project to the
AEC budget.
It has been omitted because
the AEC was trying to keep ap-
propriation expenses at a mini-
The project had been received
favorably in 1958 by the AEC but
had not been acted upon since
then because the State Legislature
had not appropriated funds to
house the cyclotron. The Legisla-
ture approved an outlay appropri-
ation to the University yesterday
to begin plans for the construction
of a physics and astronomy build-
ing and for housing for the cyclo-
At present the University has
a medium energy cyclotron,
housed in the first basement of
the Randall Laboratory. The new
cyclotron will also be a medium
range cyclotron, but will be unique
because it will not only be able to
study the nucleil of new elements
but the nucleil of heavier ele-
ments. "It will fill a gap in exist-
ing cyclotrons," Sawyer told Con-
gress last month.
The cyclotron in the basement
of the Randall Laboratory will
probably be moved to the housing
for the new cyclotron on North
Campus. In its present location,
Prof. Parkinson said, "It cannot
be used for certain experiments
that researchers would like to do
because of the radiation hazards."
"Although other universities are
also interested in similar projects,
the proposed cyclotron facility will
be unique," Prof. Parkinson com-
mented. "One half of the appro-
priation would be used for instru-
mentation consisting of a beam
preparation system, and a reac-
tion-product analysis device."
In Washington, Prof. Dennison
called the proposed cyclotron a
"unique machine, of national im-
portance. He said that the con-
struction of a cyclotron that would
give a continuous beam of parti-
cles and particles which are ac-
curately controlled in nature, has
been devised only recently.
If the cyclotron project is ap-
proved by the House Appropria-
tions Committee, it will face the
House itself. Then the same pro-
cess will have to take place in
the Senate. The complete public
works bill, in which the cyclotron
is only one of many parts, will
face the President of the United
States for final approval.


"The creative arts in America
are in grave danger at a time when
they. are more desperately needed
than at any other period in our
history," Prof. Howard Hanson,
director of the Eastman School of
Music at the University of Roches-
ter, declared.
He was speaking at the 37th
annual Honors Convocation, where
the University cited 872 under-
graduates- for scholastic achieve-
ment. These included 55 James B.

"A" records for two consecutive

igan State University Press, was

Speaking on "The Creative Arts
in the Space Age," Prof. Hanson
said that America can,* no longer
hide behind her traditional reputa-
tion as a young pioneering nation
lacking time and money to devote
to concerns of the spirit.
"There is neither a lack of time,
nor a lack of money. We are simply
becoming increasinglyhconcerned
with material solids which are of
immediate, observable usefulness."
Didn't Dismiss Science
He did not dismiss the Im-
portance of science. He believes
that the creative scientist is "often
the best friend of the creative art-
ist. The pressure for physicists
and chemists, however, Jeopardizes
the position of the artistically in-
clined student."
Prof. Hanson pointed out that
this misapplication of talent harms
the sciences as well as the creative
arts. One of the main obligations
of a university, he said, is sensitiz-
ing the student's eyes and ears
and mental faculties to the percep-
tion of beauty.
"Is man in the machine age to
become himself a machine?" he
Hanson Not Pessimistic
The answer Prof. Hanson gave
was not altogether pessimistic.
"The creative arts, particularly
music, have made considerable
progress toward recognition lately.
Nevertheless, Prof. Hanson feels
that the university administrations
are "pathologically afraid of the
creative arts and are willing to ac-
cept them only if they have been
thoroughly sterilized."
Following his address, Prof. Han-
son accepted an honorary degree
of Doctor of Music awarded by
University President Harlan
Hatcher on behalf of the Univer-
sity Board of Regents.

DISARMAMENT PROTEST - Students from three Michigan
universities gathered in Lansing yesterday to express their
concern over the present treatment of the disarmament question
and to ask for positive action by world powers at the forthcoming
summit meetings.
Stud ents Gather To Protest
Disarmament Proceedings
University, Bay City Junior College and Wayne State University
students gathered before the State Capitol steps yesterday noon to
demonstrate for disarmament..
Acting as a part of nationwide demonstrations to express student
opinion for a disarmament plan at the Summit, the demonstrators
stood quietly under "Disarmament at Summit" and "There is No
Protection Short of Peace" banners listening to three speeches from
fellow students.
A busload of University students swelled the ranks although the
majority came from Bay City Junior College where the movement

originated. Bay City students
came in a car caravan in the face
of threatened penalties from their
school officials.
The non-violent and non-parti-
san demonstration to "express in-
terest on the part of students who
are not satisfied with what is be-
ing done toward disarmament"
drew more observers than partici-
Eight photographers, four re-
porters, eleven state legislators,
five Army and Navy officials and
other onlookers braved threaten-
ing rain to hear the speeches and
examine the independent, Sane
Nuclear Policy petition which was
"We are the first generation to
grow up under the Nuclear threat"
Glenn Miller of Bay City stressed.
"This makes us unique and gives
us a special obligation to future
"This generation for the last
fifteen years has grown up amidst
an arms race. Seeking security in
these diverse ways has created a
tool to destroy all men."
Reactions to the speeches and
petition were varied. One legislator
said he would sign the petition
except that he was in the Legis-
lature. '


Cubans Fire,
On U.S. Ship
HAVANA W-Fidel Castro last
night disclosed that Cuban naval
craft fired on a United States sub-
marine operating off Cuba's 'coast.
The disclosure came as he pro-
tested American submarines, war-
ships and planes were operating
off Cuba's coast and charged that
the light cruiser Norfolk violated
Cuba's territorial water by coming
inside the three mile limit.
Appearing before a television
audience, Castro read a Cuban
naval report citing nine specific
instances of United States Navy
craft being sighted operating near
the Cuban coast between May
The Cuban report charged the
American craft were operating "in
blackout in violation of interna-
tional agreements."
Castro gave no details of the
shooting at the submarine, saying
only that it sped north in dark-

Educato Bll
Breaks Deadloc
School To Receive $35.2 Million
Plus$19 Million in Capital Ougtl
The state legislative snarl was broken yesterday in
overtime session which saw passage of the University's $3
million budget as part of a $108 million education bill.
The Legislature also passed a $19 million capital out
program. This program presumably includes the Physi
Astronomy-Institute of Science and Technology building a
new cyclotron laboratory, Wilbur K. Pierpont vice-preside
in charge of business and financing, said.
University officials continued to express their conce
over the inadequacies of the budget when informed of I
bill's passage. President Harlan Hatcher said he believed t
legislators labored "under great difficulties" and "tried
meet their responsibilities"'

but that the present budget
"does not meet the minimum
n9eds of the University.
Vice presidents Marvin L. Nie-
huss and Pierpont agreed about
the short-comings of the present
"I hope is will be supplement-
ed," Niehuss said. The final bud-
get will be ready in July, as it will
be determined by the Regents at'
their next meeting, he explained.
When asked whether a student
tuition rise was necessitated by
the inadequate budget, Niehuss
said that this and other means "to
complete the budget" would prob-
ably be discussed by the Regents.
He added that he expected some
action would be taken by them on
this matter.
Prepared To Proceed,
"We are prepared to proceed
immediately to draw up plans"
for the cyclotron laboratory and
the other buildings included in
the capital outlay bill, Pierpont
Plans are "completely ready to
let out for construction bids" on
the cyclotron construction, he
The bill did not include the
proposed new music building
which was given first priority in
the University's request, but Pier-
pont explained that the first three
or four items on the list "all have
about the same priority."
The music building, the fluids
engineering program 'and other
construction needs of the Univer-
sity included in this year's request
will be submitted to the Legis-
lature again next year.
Pierpont said he believed the
bill provided $1.5 million cash and
an authorization of $7 million to
proceed on the Physics-Astron-
omy-IST building.
The appropriations will allow
the University to start construc-
tion of the cyclotron building and
to draw up the plans and start
construction of the other struc-
Thursday the Legislature ap-
proved a $975,000 bond issue for
an addition to the Student Activ-
ities Bldg. Pierpons explained that
this addition will be financed by
student funds, as previously' an-
nounced, but that law required
the lawmakers to ap1~l"'e all self-
liquidating projects of the Uni-
Official's Opinion
Niehuss probably summed up
the opinion of University officials
when he said, "at least we're glad
we got it passed."
Legislators worked past their
sine die (formal) adjournment
time of noon yesterday in the face
of a threat from Gov. Williams to
call a special session. Technically,
the session will end on Wednes-
day, May 18, although all official
business was completed yesterday.

Predicts Win
In Michigan
"This year the Republicans are
prepared to show the people of
Michigan the beginning of a new
and prosperous era under their
leadership," Postmaster General
Arthur E. Summerfield said yes-
Summerfield was in Grand Rap-
Ids to meet with the Chamber of
Commerce president and members
of the City Planning Board for the
presentation of a new three million
dollar post office to the city.
The new building will be the
357th of its kind in the state since
the present administration came
into office in 1953.
"I am working to become a
delegate to the national conven-
tion because I believe that I can
do a service to the Vice-President,
the state of Michigan and the Re-
publican committee," he said.
Summerfield who was a national
committeeman for twelve yers.!
was partially responsible for swing-
ing the state delegation to Dwight
D. Eisenhower in 1952. He also
served as national party chairman
during the following campaign.
The Postmaster said his name
and that of his colleague, Fred
Mueller, Grand Rapids' secretary
of commerce, had been suggested
as a convention delegate possi-
bility because it was "mportant
to the Vice-President, the admin-
istration, the state and the party
that Eisenhower's cabinet present
a united front in favor of Nixon."
Summerfield said he had de-
elined the position in 1956, because
the nomination was assured Eisen-
hower, but now he felt his political
bargaining could aid in steering
the national convention along it
proper course.
Return Republicans
Turning to the state at large,
Summerfield said it was important
that the state align itself behind
Nixon, and also make an effort to
return=its Republicans to Congress.
"This is a crucial year in Michi-
gan politics," he said. "We must
put responsible men in the driver's
seat in Lansing. We must give the
Republicans a majority in the
Legislature, so that this fiscal mesa
can be cleared up permanently. ,
He said that his being a dele-
gate would indicate his willing-
ness to do all he could to help in
Michigan and work toward recon-
ciling the various factions of the
"If we present a united front, a
effective campaign, and a respon-
sible program, we can win," he
said. "The people have had enough
bickering. They are ready to over-
throw the 10 years under the pres-
ent government.

Weigh World Problems at Damp Hyde Park

Yesterday's Hyde Park on the
Diag began with'a conglomeration
of oratory on the recent incident
of the American plane reportedly
shot down by the Russians, but
the discrimination question be-
came the predominating issue.
The first speaker described the
plane occurrence as "the most
embarrassing" and was promptly
reminded of Pearl Harbor. He
then asserted that the Russians
"do not have the weapons they
claim to have." He was immedi-
ately attacked on this point.
Following this, the subject of
picketing was brought up, draw-
ing more speakers and commenta-
tors. Most of those who spoke at
length on this subject represented
the Young Democrats and Young
Republicans of the University.
Hadn't Endorsed Picketing
The Young Republicans said
that although they disapproved
of+h allpapA dkermi,,tioex- ,_

munists, a speaker referred to
them as "Reds." Someone cor-
rected the speaker by telling him
that they were "Yellows." Another
student inserted that Americans
must therefore be red, white and
blue and was greeted with the
addition "and black" from some-
one else in the group.
A Student Government Council
member followed this with a pres-
entation of the provision for
speakers as listed by the Univer-
sity's Lecture Committee.
No Communist Lecturers?
"Should the University be al-
lowed to state that no one may
lecture who is a member of or
active in a Communist-front or-
ganization? Should it be allowed
to state that no one may speak
on a subject which violates the
fundamentals of our accepted code
of morals?"
He received a deluge of ques-
tions on the purpose and capabili-
fla o ,, rA a~in +hamA-+in

Regarding fraternity discrimi-
nation, the SGC member was
again outspoken. Questions de-
bated included: Is it national or
local chapters that want discrimi-
nation? Does the fraternity have
the right to discriminate?
State taxes partially support
the students, and the fraternitise
the students, and the fraternities,
as parts of the University, must
not discriminate for this reason.
But, the fraternities own their
own houses, despite the fact that
they are on public streets in a
private institution.
A further consideration was
that as a part of the Univ rsity,
although not tax supported them-
selves, they are subject to Uni-
versity rush rules as stated by
The final topic of discussion was
the recent action by Joint Judici-
ary, when it suspended Mark Hall
