Kellogg Foundation First To Devote Entire Building
To Study Of Graduate And Postgraduate Dentistry
By RICHARD HARMEL
With the fanfare and ceremony so
characteristic of dedications coming
April 3 for the new W. K. Kellogg;
Foundation Institute for Graduate
and Postgraduate Dentistry, the cam-
pus is slowly awakening to a curiosity
about the location and function of the
building whose sleek, modern lines,
dental authorities say, suggest the
spirit of progress and research in
which it was founded.
The Institute, completed except for
the landscaping around it, rises at the
corner of North UJniversity Avenue
and Twelfth Street directly across
from the League and next to the new
It represents a unique institution
in that no other school or organiza-
tion in the country has an entire
building devoted to a study of gradu-
ate and postgraduate dentistry.
outstanding Contribution To Campus
Architecturally speaking, the build-
ing represents "an outstanding con-
tribution" to the University campus,
according to Dr. Russel W. Bunting,
dean of the dental school. He says:
"In the 'Institute is combined maxi-
mum utilitarian efficiency with sim-
plicity and beauty of designthat
makes it an ideal educational unit."
From the outside, the Institute is
three stories in height and extends
200 feet north and south and is ap-
proximately 100 feet deep. The en-
tire exterior is punctured by large
windows providing the maximum of
daylight to all the rooms. The in-
clusion of a court 50 by 54 feet in
size between the Institute and the
dental building makes possible the
same lighting for the inner rooms as
is available on the outside.
Entrance Faces West
The main entrance of the building
faces west. After ascending two short
flights of steps, the main lobby, pan-
eled in walnut, is reached. From
here, a marble stairway, divided by a
large panel of glass brick, ascends
to the second floor and lateral stair-
ways lead to the basement.
The first floor has to the right of
the foyer, the administrative offices
of the W. K. Kellogg Foundation In-
stitute, a faculty conference room
and a seminar room. On the east
and west corridor leading to the den-
tal building are the dental caries
(cavities) research laboratories, a
small lecture room and a seminar
room. To the left, a wide arch opens
directly into a children's waiting room
which leads into clinics and labora-,
tories for the teaching of children's
dentistry and orthodontics.
The second floor has the central
west side of the building devoted to
clinics and laboratories for partial
denture prosthesis and across the hall
are additional laboratories. On the
north side are special facilities for
teaching operative dentistry, root sur-
gery and ceramics. The entire south
side is devoted to the operating rooms
and private consultation offices of
Seminar Rooms In Basement
On the basement floor are semi-
nar rooms, laboratories for oral path-
ology and research, an auditorium
with a capacity of 300, locker rooms,
lounge room and an exhibition room.
Direct communication between the
Institute and the dental building is
assured by means of continuous halls
on the south side and by direct open-
ings on the northwest corner of the
The Institute will not be used for
undergraduate study expept in oral
pathology. All undergraduate teach-
ing will continue to go on in the
dental building while the Institute
will confine itself to instruction for'
graduate and postgraduate work.

Thousands of small glassy objects
strewn on the southwestern shores of
the Pacific Ocean are important evi-
dence that the moon once was a part
of the earth until torn away by a
powerful tidal force, according to a
theory advanced here today by Prof.
Carl W. Rufus, of the astronomy de-
The glass objects-known to physi-
cal scientists as "tektites"-have
been studied for more than 150 years,
but there never has been a satisfac-
tory theory for their origin.
Dr. Rufus' explanation of the phe-
nomena is based largely upon a gen-
eral "fission theory" of the origin of
the moon, which was developed by
Sir George H. Darwin, and which says
that the Pacific Ocean is a scar on the
earth created when the moon tore
away 10,000 years ago.
Professor Rufus says that some of
the loose matter which was pulled
away with the moon did not fall im-
mediately back to earth, but contin-
ued to revolve out in space for some
time. These particles, ,Professor Ru-
fus believes, were similar in composi-
tion to the matter which is contained
in the rings encircling Saturn today.
According to his theory, these par-
ticles which revolved about the earth
were the glassy objects which are
found in the Pacific area today and
which science 'ha labeled "tektites."
The composition of the primitive
earth at the tind of the moon's fis-;
sion is not known today, but it is gen-
erally thought that the rupture oc-
curred while the earth was beginning
to solidify. According to Professor
Rufus' explanation, the earth was+
made up on an upper layer of hard
granite, with a lower layer of glassy
basalt beneath the granite.
"When the fission occurred," he
explains, "it seems very probable that
the mass of the moon stripped the
Pacific area of its granite layer and
probably lifted some of the material
from the glassy layer. The glassy
part, being deepest, was the last to
leave the earth and would therefore
constitute the material which formed
the detached' fragments."
These particles revolved around the
earth over the Pacific and were fin-
ally drawn into the atmosphere with
"speeds sufficient to produce the typi-
cal forms which are characteristic of
tektites today," Professor Rufus add-
Another bit of evidence which
seems to add to the authenticity of
this theory is the existence of a series
of deep trenches on the floor of the
Pacific Ocean, parallel to the area
in which the tektites are found. These
trenches are thought to extend deep
into the glassy area.
Professor Rufus had mailed a de-
scription of his theory to the Uni-
versity of the Philippines, which has
studied tektites for many years. He
also delivered a paper on it at a meet-
ing of the American Association for
the Advancement of Science.

Construction of the 200-inch tele-
scope at Mt. Palomar, California,
was described Wednesday night at a
meeting of the American Society of
Mechanical Engineers in the Union,
by Prof. Jesse Ormondroyd, of the
mechanical engineering department.
Professor Ormondroyd was in sole
charge of the manufacturing design,
and actual manufacturing of the
mechanical parts of the telescope.
Weighing one million pounds, the
giant steel unit will be moved by a
one half horsepower motor, the speak-
er said during the course of his talk.
This is possible because of a new type
of bearing developed to eliminate
friction difficulties rising out of the
great weight supported.
The largest bearing evei' built will
be used in the supporting mechanism
Professor Ormondroyd added, a bear-
ing which measures 46 feet in diam-
eter. Plans for the work have beer
in existence since as early as 1918,
