"The agreement has worked ex-
tremely well," Hiltner said. The
University gets 50 percent of the
viewing time, with the other two
colleges receiving 20 percent of the
time each, with 10 percent left over for
the "rough edges," he said.
"MCGRAW-HILL is used extensively
by graduate students at the Univer-
sity," Hiltner said. "Nearly everyone
who will get a Ph.D. has used the ob-
servatory." An endowment fund is used
to pay the student's travel and other
expenses, he added.
Professor McAlpine said that he often
brings graduate students to Chile to use
the Curtis-Schmidt telescope.
Although owned by the University,
the Cerro Tololo telescope is operated
by the Association of Universities for
Research in Astronomy, whose direc-
tors include Hiltner and James
Brinkerhoff, University vice-
president and chief financial officer.
"THE CORNERSTONE of research
in this department is having our own
telescope," said Eliot Malumuth, a doc-
toral candidate in the astronomy depar-
tment who has been to both telescopes.
"It's definitely worth the trip," he ad-
Stephen Schectman, of the Mt. Wilson
Observatory in California, invented a
photon scanner while doing post-
doctoral work at Michigan. The scan-
ner has since been adapted by many
observatories because it can detect and
count light particles on the level of its
smallest particle, the photon.
The University has one of a dozen
comparable astronomy departments in
the nation, Schectman said.

This photo of Bryan Anderson, 15, from Bath, Michigan was taken just
before his disappearance late in August of this year. Bryan, who had tried to
find a foster home for the last four years, apparently gave up the search and
took to the road instead. He has not been seen or heard from since August,
and there is no clue as to his whereabouts.

Others watch for the entertainment
