Michigan's graduate physics de-
partment, the second largest in the
United States, owes its size mainly
to the reputation which has been at-
ained by members of the department
and by the University in general, ac-
cording to the results of a survey re-
eased yesterday.
The survey, which was conducted
last year under the direction of
Prof. H. R. Crane and Prof. George
E. Uhlenbeck, was designed to de-
termine why the physics department
here had so many graduate students
while the departments of many other
universities had fewer.
Graduates Given List
In an attempt to learn the answer,
graduates were given a list of 15
statements and were asked to num-
