U.S. Cultural Relatons in Iran
j Are Inuadequate -- Brownrig g
For a country as hungry as is Iran for American culture and tcchnology
the cultural relations program of the United States in that country is sadly,
inadequate, Mary Brownrigg, Grad., recently returned from Iran, said
"Our cultural relations program, although recently expanded, is mi-
croscopic compared with that of Great Britain and Russia. This condition
must be improved," Miss Brownrigg explained, "because the Iranians look to
--------------plus as a balance between the ex-j

Foreign Students Help
Students To Participate
Eighty-one foreign students en-
rolled in the University will partici-
pate in opening day ceremonies of
Detroit's Automotive Golden Jubilee
Dressed in their native costumes,
students from the 20 Latin American
republics, Australia, Egypt, Iceland,
Iraq, Liberia, the Netherlands, South
Africa and Turkey will drape their
countries' flags on the monument
dedicated to fifty years of automo-
tive industry.
The unveiling ceremony, highlight
of the nine-day festivities, will be
broadcast on a nationwide hookup
and will include an address either by
President Truman or UN Secretary
Lie in New York. All of the 51 United
Nations, and several other national
groups, will be represented.
Band Will Play
For Graduation
The University of Michigan Con-
cert Band, under the direction of
Prof. William D. Revelli, will play at
senior graduation functions and at
Commencement, starting Thursday,
June 20.
A small ensemble of band members
will play dinner music Thursday
evening, June 20, in the Union Ball-
room. There will be a concert at
3 p.m. Friday in Hill Auditorium, and
an annual Commencement concert
in front of the library steps Friday
night. Saturday at noon the band
will play at an alumni luncheon and
Saturday night they will participate
in a Commencement procession.
These will be the band's last ap-
pegrances of the season, during which
time they have appeared at more
than fifty public performances.

Press Assistant
During her 11 months' stay in Iran,
Miss Brownrigg was most closely as-
sociated with the cultural relations
or Press Section of the American Em-
bassy, where she was assistant to the
Press attache.
The Embassy's Cultural Relations
program loans educational films and
film strips to the Iranian Ministry
of Education for use in the public
schools, distributes American perio-
dicals to Iranian libraries, and issues
American news and feature material
to newspapers throughout the coun-
Scholarslips for study in the
United States have been awarded to
young Iranian students, and not long
ago several volumes of scientific and
literary works-largely by American
authors-were presented to the Uni-
versity in the name of the American
people, Miss Brownrigg said.
Presbyterian Missionaries
"An impressive foundation, how-
ever, has been built by American Pres-
byterian missionarics, who, without
government backing or financial aid,
have established and maintained
schcols (primary, secondary and col-
lege), hospitals and clinics in many
provinces. Schools based on Ameri-
can standards have been set up and
the young people of Iran are anxious
to attend," Miss Brownrigg explained.
"The American people have not yet
realized the tremendous importance
of an extensive cultural relations pro-
gram in Middle Eastern countries that
are today struggling to become mo-
dern democracies. We cannot ignore
our moral obligation to these people
who so badly want and need scientific
and cultural contributions," Miss
Brownrigg added.
But where the Americans offer five
scholarships, the British award twen-
ty or thirty and the Russians fifty.
For every ten American educational
films in Tehran there are a hundred
in the British Information headquar-
ters. "This is quite typical of all our
projects," Miss Brownrigg said.
'Unwarranted Personal Attack'
There have been a few occasions
on which we have undermined our
prestige in Iran. Most recent was the
"unwarranted personal attack on the
sovereign of a friendly nation," made
by one of the leading national week-
"The Iranian attitude towards the
United States has always been one
of admiration. The Iranians look to
us for guidance, inspiration and last,
but of prime importance, material
aid. Iran has made great strides in
the last decade in freeing herself
of external foreign domination, and
internal feudalism for assistance in
firmly establishing herself as a mo-
dern democracy," Miss Brownrigg

Radar navigational devices will
certainly be adopted universally by
the transcontinental airlines in the
near future, Prof. William G. Dov,
cf the electrical engineering depart-
ment declared yesterday.
"The cost to an airline companyy
of buying and installing the neces-
sary equipment on all their planes,"s
he said, "should not exceed the
ultimate cost of just one major
airplane crash when insurance.aind
damage payments are taken into1
'"The airline companies are full,
aware of the tremendous advantages
of radar devices in navigation, but
there will probably be a certain
amount of delay in widespread use
of radar by commercial airlines be-I
cause of the necessity of making
changes in the military design, which
is not adaptable to peacetime use."
The universal installation and
careful use of radar equipment in
airplanes, he said, should greatly
reduce the likelihood of accidents
similar to the recent collisions with
skyscrapers in New York City and
with mountain peaks in the Rock-
ies. Some of the planes involved
in these recent accidents, lie ex-
plained, have been equipped with
radar, but the pilots have failed to
take advantage of it.
Experiments are now being con-
ducted on a radar beacon system,
Prof. Dow said. In this system the
plane sends out a signal which is
picked up by one of a widespread
network of ground beacons and the
pulses are re-radiated to the plane.
Ideally, the return signal would not
only tell the pilot what beacon it
was so that he could locate it on the
map, but also the direction and dis-
tance of the beacon from his plane,
so that he could determine his posi-
tion exactly.'
Reports from Wright Field des-
cribe another system in which every
plane would be equipped with radio
signals on the wing tips. All these

signals would be in tune, forming
a warning network at all times.
Some military officers, Prof. Dow
pointed out, believe that the cost
will prove an obstacle that will pre-
vent private pilots from obtaining
so much equipment.
Radar antennae now in the ex-
perimental stage at Wright Field
consist of a round shallow "saucer"
of metal and, projecting from it,
a stubby rod ending in a small knob.
The "saucer" sends out the radar
beam, focussing it like a searchlight.
The "saucer", moreover, will spin like
a top, allowing it to sweep the beam
completely around the horizon, and
it will tilt to read the skies at any
upward angle. i
Some authorities believe that the
rapid refinement of radar equip-
ment has complicated its opera-
tion to some extent, Prof. Dow
said. It will frequently respond to
weather fronts and even plain rain-
storms. This is a cause of confus-
ion, he said, which, however, can
