Should NATot Be
Shared - Smith
Advocating a five to ten year "pe-
riod of grace" in which to perfect a
powerful world government, Prof.
Peter A. S. Smith of the chemistry
department yesterday maintained
that the technological secrets of the
atomic bomb should not be shared.
During this period the United
States should not allow the rest of
the world to catch up, but should at-
tempt to maintain its lead, 'Prof.
Agrees With Dr. Urey
Commenting on a statement by Dr.
Harold C. Urey, Nobel Prize winner
and atom bomb scientist, Prof. Smith
agreed that we cannot release our
technological secrets to the world as
it is now constituted.
Free exchange of the principles of
nuclear physics, however, is neces-
sary to the full use of the nation's
scientific ability, Prof. Smith pointed
out. Legislation blocking interna-
tional exchange in this sphere would
"throttle research," he said.
Need For Definite Policy
At present, employees are flocking
away from atomic production plants
because they have been given no clue
as to the future they can expect in
this work, Prof. Smith. Meanwhile
competent scientists under 26 years
are forced by the government to con-
tinue in this field. A more definite
policy should be formulated, he
pointed out, either to attract scien-
tist leaving for other work or to re-
lease those now forced to remain.
Registration for rushing is continu-
ing' in the student offices of the Un-
ion between 3 p.m. and 5 p.m. daily,
with approximately 200 students al-
ready signed up.
Registration places the student
under no obligation, but no student
may be rushed by a fraternity until
he has signed with the Interfraternity
The newest edition of the IFC di-
rectory, containing data on the loca-
tion and membership of all campus
fraternities, is being distributed to
all thcse signing up for rushing.
Under new regulations adopted at a
recent meeting of house presidents of
all fraternities, men may register
during a two week period at the be-
ginning of the semester, after which
a rushing list will be drawn up by
the IFC and submitted to the frater-
nities. This will be followed by three
weeks of rushing. No man may be
pledged before the fourth week and
after the fifth week. The same pro-
cedure for reporting pledges will be
To* Be Studied

Guild, a group singing conference di-
rected by Mrs. Rose Page Welch,

ranging programs and leading spir-
ituals and folk songs will be stressed
by Mrs. Welch.
The conference sessions, which are

Refreshments will be served.
All students who are wholly or par-
tially self-supporting are encouraged
to use the textbook lending library.
thereby helping themselves and help-
ing to alleviate the critical textbook
shortage on campus.
The books may be obtained by
working students upon recommenda-
tion by the dean of his college or his
academic counselor from the collec-
tion which is kept in the Angell Hall
Books are charged to students for
one term, with the privilege of re-
newing the loan for another semester
if they have been properly cared for.
If books which are requested are not
available at the library, they are
bought as soon as possible so that no
student will have to miss assignments.
For Red Cross
Plans are now complete to begin
the annual Red Cross Drive March

the campus division announced yes-
The drive, a part of the Ann Arbor
campaign to raise $48,460, will extend
through March 20.
The campus effort will reach all
University students and employes of
the University and St. Joseph hospi-
tals. All supplies will be distributed
by the end of this week, Dean Rae

local effort is a subdivision, began

Hold Your Bonds
Last fall it was necessary to pur-
chase 70 books to add to the circulat-
ing collection of about 1,700 texts.
The collection includes texts for
courses in every college and school
in the University without exception.
Most of the texts have been con-
tributed by students since the initial
start of the library in May, 1937, by
student gifts and financial aid from
alumni. Students who have used the
library have been very much in favor
of it, for as one student said, "with-
out the service of the library I would
have had to go into debt to purchase
In the light of the library's activi-
ties, Dean Walter, advisor to the li-
brary, said, "If every student. would
contribute one text for which he no
longer has any use, it would be a big
help." These books may be turned in
at any of the study halls.
During the war years, when the
University's enrollment was depleted
and money was relatively plentiful,
the demand for the library's services
remained high. Dean Walter ex-
plained this as a result of students
not being able to earn money during
the summer, when many of them re-
mained in school.

Dr. Gale, who is a former officer of
the Chinese Salt Revenue Administra-

tory of Asia," originally prepared by
Sir Charles Elliot, vice-chancellor of

in the Far East, as well as brin ing
the history of the Near East and
India up to date, Dr. Gale ex-
plained. Revisions have also been
made in the bibliography on the
subject, which has recently been
In the article, Dr. Gale has pointed
out the changes brought about by the
defeat of Japan in the political or-
ganization of East Asia. He also
speculated on the position of Asia in
the post-war world and the future of
western imperialism in the East.
Dr. Gale wrote that India is led
to expect dominion status at most
in its struggle for independence. He
also stated that although revisions
in governmental forms may appear
in some colonies in the East, west-
ern countries will attempt to retain
de facto authority by setting up
puppet governments or protector-
ates in present colonial areas.
In his article on "parthenogenesis",
Prof. Shull presented the most recent
information on this subject, which
concerns the development of egg;
without fertilization. The process is
the normal means of reproduction in
some animals, may be induced arti-
ficially or may occur alternately with
another reproductive process.
Prof. Shull has worked for about
30 years in experiments with animals
which normally reproduce by parthe-
nogenesis and has prepared several
articles on the subject during that
time for professional reviews. He
has also prepared another article
which will appear in a future edition
of the Britannica.
He is presently engaged in a project
investigating evolutionary genetics.
This involves crossing species to dis-
cover genetic differences between
them in order to be able to infer some
idea of their original evolution.

produced one week. 5,000 gallons of
water were used a day.
He described the Hydroponics farm
