Atomic Test Crowds Island

Present Vets


KWAJALEIN, June 7- W) - The
atom bomb test is keeping this cross-
roads island in the Pacific operating
at near war-time tempo.
Judged by distances of the world's
biggest ocean, the test site at Bikini
is only a stone's throw away, a mere
250 miles to the northwest.
Grant Money
Machine To Be Bought
By School of Forestry
The School of Forestry and Con-
servation has received a $1,000 grant
from five furniture concerns in Hol-
land, Michigan, and one in Cincin-
nati, Ohio, for the purchase of a
machine used for shaping wood in
furniture manufacturing, it was an-
nounced today.
The machine will be a valuable ad-
dition to the equipment used in the
Wood Technology Curricula which
was instituted last fall upon the sug-
gestion of the National Association
of Furniture Manufacturers.
This four-year special program of
instruction prepares men for posi-
tions as technicians and executives
in the furniture industry.

Crowded on Kwajalein are almost
5,000 men - and 39 women (Red
Cross workers and nurses, plus a few
native women.)
Laboratory for Future
The island, southern end of the
biggest atoll in the Pacific, is slightly
more than two miles long, a little
less than 700 yards wide. Yet on it
are barracks, shops, warehouses, fuel
storage tanks, hangers, all the para-
phernalia of a war just fought com-
bined with the laboratory of one for
the future.
The men who seized Kwajalein
Course To Give
Dif ferenlt NViews
A course in metaphysics, conducted
from two opposite points of view,
realism and idealism, will be given
this summer by Prof. R. W. Sellars
and Prof. D. H. Parker, respectively,
it was announced yesterday by the
Department of Philosophy.
The course is for graduate stu-
dents, particularly those doing ad-
vanced work in philosophy.
Prof. Parker will leave the Uni-
versity in the fall to conduct two
courses, one in metaphysics and one
in values, at Columbia University.

from the Japanese and rebuilt it to
American specifications left only one
open space - for an airstrip.
Busy Spot
The Kwajalein airfield (altitude
seven feet) would be a busy spot
without the atom bomb project since
transpacific airplanes wing in from
the horizons to east and west.
Tiny Bikini Island has no airstrip.
When the joint Army-Navy Task
Force organized its airborne supply
sytem and began plotting the com-
plex pattern of aircraft to carry the
bomb and record its affects, Kwaja-
lein was chosen as the springboard
for the peacetime "strike" by atomic
Surface Transportation Needed
Surface transportation was needed
to fuel and feed the organization.
Where a handful of small ships stop-
ped at Kwajaleinat the beginning
of this year, a score or more ride at
anchor in the lagoon now, discharg-
ing cargo and pumping fuel to the
tanks ashore.
The place isn't like home, but it's
better than some of the airbases
whittled out of solid jungle at vari-
ous unpleasant places in the world.
The northwest trades blow a nice,
cooling, steady 17 miles an hour,
night and day, rattling the fronds of
the twelve palms that survived war's
withering bombardment and the bull-

he was still being questioned about
his military career eight years after
he hed been discharged in 177 A.D.
Ancient "Red Tape"
The papyrus disclosing Valerius'
encounter with the "red tape" of
those early days was uncovered dur-
ing the extensive excavation at Kar-
anis, Egypt, by a University expedi-
tion and is now on display at the
Museum of Art and Archeology.
Prof. Enoch E. Peterson, curator
of Egyptian antiquities at the muse-
um, was in charge of the expedition
to Egypt from 1923 to 1935. He re-
ports that veterans of the Roman
auxiliary forces and the fleet remain-
ed under the supervision of the pre-
fect of Egypt after discharge. The
prefect kept necessary records about
the veterans in order to establish
their legal status and rights. It is
such a prefect's record, concerning
Valerius Clemens, which is now on
Case Reconstructed
Reconstructing the case from the
evidence given in the discharge re-
cord, Prof. Peterson says Valerius
sought permission in 185 A.D. to live
in the Arsinoite home in Egypt, the
area of the University's excavations.
Valerius had to produce evidence of
his military service, verified by wit-
nesses, before the prefect could grant
him the desired permission. The re-
cord finally issued him is written in
the red ink used only by the mili-
tary. It also contains the informa-
tion that Valerius was 44 years old
when he was discharged.
The papyrus is part of the cur-
rent display at the museum featur-
ing the papyri, glass, sculpture and
textiles recovered by the expedition.

mended certain physical improve-
ments - painting, redecorating and
installation of additional sanitary
facilities, and this program has been
carried out.
On the question of recreation and
instruction for children in the De-
tention Home, the supervisors de-
clared, "We believe that the period
of detention should be so limited that
no special provision for recreation or
school training need be provided."
Average Stay Two Weeks
Judge Pray told Daily reporters
that the average period of detention
is two weeks, but that occasionally a
child spends "as much as three
months" there.
The supervisors approved the qual-
ifications of the matron. "She is
hired by the County Social Welfare
Board and approved by the judge,"
the supervisors said.
The supervisors urged that the po-
lice return apprehended children to
their parents "at once if possible"
to await court action.
Parental Responsibility
"We believe it very important that
parents of delinquents be made te
take this responsibility whenever it
is possible rather than passing it on
to the public," they said.
The supervisors also recommended
a system of county-subsidized homes
as temporary shelters for dependent
and neglected children until the court
or some special. agency has made a
long-term placement.
Immediate Action Asked
The plan has not been put int
effect as yet. The Ypsilanti Counci
of Social Agencies petitioned the
supervisors this month to take "im-
mediate action" on the plan. Th
bsupervisors referred the petition t
the board's Juvenile Affairs Com-
One of the 119 citizens who orig-
inally petitioned the supervisors tolc
The Daily that the blame for exist-
ing conditions in the juvenile cor-
rection system rests squarely wit
the voters.
"The public isn't paying enoug
nor requiring high qualifications" fo
the officials who administer the sys-
tem, the citizen said.
Juvenile Crime Wave
U. S. Attorney-General Clark sai
this week that the government i
:nobilizing public and private force
to "forestall the greatest juvenil
_crime wave in the nation's history.
Clark said, "Positive action is essen
tial. It is appalling, for example, tha
_sex delinquency among 17-year-old
increased 365 per cent in 1945. An
21 per cent of all crimes now ar
committed by youths."
