Randolph G. Adams, librarian of
Clements Library, attended the first
two-day business meeting of the In-
stitute of Early American History and
Culture, sponsored by William and
Mary College and Colonial Williams-
burg, Friday and yesterday in Wil-
liamsburg, Va.
Council of 1?1
The Council consisting of 13 dis-
tinguished American historians, will
discuss organization and policy plans
and will announce awards of grants
to enable selected scholars and writers
the opportunity of continuing re-
s' arch in the early American field,
Dr. Carl Bridenbaugh, Director of the
Institute, announced.
School Students
Send Texts to
Manila YWCA
Five tons of children's books, col-
leeted by Ann Arbor school children,
have been shipped to the YWCA in
Manila, Philippine Islands, Prof. Roy1
S. Swinton of the engineering college
said yesterday.
The books were gathered as the
result of interest aroused by Col.
Frederick Castro of the Army's Judge
Advocate General School when he
spoke to elementary school teachers
here. Col. Castro told the teachers
that all libraries and most private
collections of books in the Philip-
pines had been destroyed during the
war, Prof. Swinton said.
Prof. Swinton, who went to the
University of the Philippines in 1940
to advise on the installation of a new
laboratory, was a prisoner of war
in Santo Tomas prison during the
Japanese occupation.
At the present time, Prof. Swinton
disclosed negotiations are underway
with the University of the Philippines
as to the proper method of spending
the $2,500 University students con-
tributed to the Philippine university.

The Institute is a merger of the
historical research and publications
programs of William and Mary Col-
lege,dsecond oldest college in the
united States, and Colonial Williams-
burg, which administers the restora-
tion of the historic city.
All American history prior to 1815
is studied by the organization, which
states its aim: to present to the pub-
lie in a "clear knowledge and under-
standing of the early development of
this nation in its progress toward
political, economic and social de-
Long Range Program
In addition to making Williams-
ourg a laboratory foi thedstudy of
early American history and its cul-
t re, the i:titute plans to initiate a
long-ran fe program that will corge-
lete its sturcies to the re-awakened
interest in American history, on the
assumption that the public will pro-
tit by the knowledge of the early
years of the nation's development.
The iUltimate plan is to make Wi'-
liamsburg the mecca of all the finest
collectio:r, cf early Americana in all
f.,rms, by obtaining photostat and
film c Thr etions, of records dealing
with this period of history and by
compiling all pertinent materials and
studies in tls field.

Bacteria count is tending to run'

the inability of most dairies to secure
high-priority sanitation equipment,
but he noted a genuine improvement
in the cleanliness and general safe-
ty of local milk even since the war's

sold, he pointed out. Since February,
he said, not one phosphatase test for
the safety of milk has been reported

Unsanitary conditions on the dairy
farms currently are plaguing cream-

able to the health department for the
quality of their milk.
Veenstra and his staff are meeting
the problem with a campign to awak-
en the farmers to the increased need
for sanitation. They're cooperating
pretty well, now, he said.

propelled vehicle in the world had
the engine in front and front-wheel
drive, the first gasoline-operated car
in the United States had rear-wheel
Passenger comfort is probably
the main point to be considered in
an evaluation of rear-engine drive
in cars, he said. With the engine
placed in the rear, the noise, odors
and vibrations of the motor would
be located farther fromthe driver.
Back-seat passengers, on the other
hand, would be even more aware
of these annoyances.
"In order to make a car most com-
fortable," Prof. Lay said, "it is gen-
erally necessary to have the weight
concentrated at both ends and light
springs in between. This construc-
tion results in a slow pitch for the

Builder of Willow Run,
Charles Reik, Dies Today
DETROIT, May 11 - (R) - The
builder of the Willow Run Plant,
Charles M. Reik, died today.
He directed the building of the
Metropolitan Methodist Church, the
Wardell-Sheraton Hotel, the Packard
plant and others of Detroit's largest

ant, he said. "When a front- n-
gine car smacks head-on into al
wall, the weight of the engine acts(
as a battering ram, protecting to
some exten the iele obehind it.
If a rear-engine car smacked into
a wall, the engine would probably
land on top of the passengers."
Previous designers, he said, have
,alleviated this difficulty by pro-
viding a "crunching space" at the
front of the car - a framework
extending about three feet in front
of the driver which absorbs shock
Job Op-enting
ArI Announed1
More than 20 types of professional
and semi-professional jobs for quali-
fied applicants are open now in
Michigan and other states, Lawrence
Hamberg, manager of the United
States Employment office heere said
Persons wanted include archi-
tects, chemists, nurses, engineers, and
those qualified for foreign service
Anyone seeking information about
job opportunities may arrange for
talks with interviewers at the local
USES office at 312 E. Huron St.,
Hamberg said.
Foreign Jobs Listed
Job opportunities for those seek-
ing foreign employment have been
announced by the United States Em-
ployment Service through a directory
listing more than 200 occupations,
including the professional, clerical,
skilled and unskilled fields.
Openings for workers in these cat-
egories are located in Europe, Asia,
Central and South America, Hawaii

"People hesitate to buy a car in
which the driver sits so close to the
front, because. having no hood to act
as a guide, it is hard to aim. Parking
in close quarters, on the other hand,
would be much easier since the driver
could see. not merely estimate, his
clearance," Prof. Lay said.
The lack of weight in the front
end of the car would also make it
more difficult to steer, Prof. Lay
added, although the increased load
on the rear wheels would help pre-
vent skidding.
Slower driving speeds would be
one possible effect of having the
driver sit at the front of the car,
he said, since in that position the
driver is better aware of the rate
at which he is travelling. However,
he explained, by eliminating the
long propeller shaft running the
length of the car, rear-engine rear-
wheel drive permits the chassis to
be dropped. This lowers the center
of gravity and therefore permits
greater speed while rounding curves.
"It has been definitely established,"
Prof. Lay said, "that the car with
rear-engine drive is more adaptable
to streamlining than the present de-
