New T echnic
Goes on Sale
Three. articles, each dealing with a
separate phase of engineering, will
highlight the current issue of the
Technic which goes on sale tomorrow.
"Surface Finishes" and their impor-
tance will be discussed in an article
by Walter Mikelson, '34E, now work-
ing as a physicist with the General
Electric Corp.-
Discussing the processing of rubber
from its natural state to its crude
stage, Stuart Johnson, '43E, presents
an interesting picture in his article
"Production of Crude Rubber,"
Another student, Ed Mertz, -'44E,
developed a comprehensive study of
plastics and has contributed his find-'
ings in a discussion of "Cellulose Ni-
trate Plastics" in the new issue. The
growing substitution of plastic pro.
ducts for scarce items in everyday life
makes the nature of this study impor-
tant in wartime.
A trio of senior engineers and Prof.
Keeler of the mechanical engineering
department combined to round out
the stories in this issue. John Fauver,
Bill Sessions, and Bill Hutcherson are
the students and their articles will
be found in the "Presents" columns
of the magazine.
Recognized as one of the outstand-
ing engineering publications of. any
college in the country, the Technic

ing talent on campus, Bill Jacobs,

Ricker Tells of Air

Chester S. Ricker, field editor

that have come about in aircraft
production due to the fact that a rela-.
tively large number of the people
now employed in the industry are
He stated' that for this reason a
more complete breakdown has de-
veloped so that one'person has as few
operations as possible to perform.
Mr. Ricker also spoke of the grow-
ing importance of the industrial artist
in the aircraft industry. He coordi-
nates the drawings of several engi
neering groups into a perspective
sketch showing therelation of the
various parts.

Soldiers Must Clean Their Plates Too

The Army has its food problems too-but of a somewhat different
nature than the problems confronting civilians. Here bomber crewman
Henry Hughes (left) and Elbert Chambers (center) of the San Angelo,
Tex., Army Air Field, learn that while they will get all they want to eat,
they must eat everything they take on their tray. Master Sgt. Frank
Kinczel (right), 16 years in the Armhy mess business, sees to that person-
ally. Hughes is from Muskegon, Mich., and Chambers from Brown-
wood, Tex.

LANSING, Feb. 23.- (A)- The 35-
miles-an-hour speed limit was sub-
jected to official scrutiny today to
determine whether, in some instances,
it did more harm than good.
Gov. Kelly instructed Capt. Donald
S. Leonard, State Defense Adminis-
trator, to inquire into labor com-
plaints that the limit is retarding pro-
duction at the Willow Run bomber
plant, and that it should be raised to
50 miles on all arterial highways lead-
ing to the plant.
The governor told Capt. Leonard
to determine whether a change was
necessary, and whether it would re-
quire state or federal action. The 35-
mile limit has been imposed by joint
order of the state highway commis-
sioner and the state police commis-
sioner, but the Office of Price Admin-
istration is revoking gasoline ration-
ing privileges of persons who exceed
that speed.
Kelly acted after receiving a tele-
gram from Richard T. Leonard, Di'-
rector of the United Automobile

Workers Union-CIO, which said,
"Present 35-mile per hour speed limit
responsible for many man hours being
lost through tardiness and workers
quitting because of distance traveled
from home. Strongly recommend es-
tablishment of 50-mile per hour speed
limit on all arterial highways leading
to Willow Run plant."
The governor said the Office of De-
fense Transportation has shared in
some exploration of feasibility of ex-
empting certain vehicles from the 35-
mile limit, following complaints that
the low speed has so delayed truck
shipments of raw materials to certain
war plants that the factories had to
close for varying periods. Display of
pennant or other identification by
exempt vehicles has been discussed,
he said, but no conclusion reached.
