WILLOW AIRPORT:
Engineers Will Display
Jet Propulsion Advances

The public will get a good close
look at some of the most signifi-
cant developments in the field of
jet propulsion on April 18 when
the aeronautical engineering de-
partment throws open its Willow
Run facilities in connection with
the Engineering Open House.
Several jet power units -the
I-40 turbo-jet, used on the Army's
P-80 Shooting Star, the I-16 which
powered the Bell P-59, and the
smaller impulse unit from a Ger-
man V-1 buzz bomb - will be on
display.
Spectators will also be treated
to the sight and sound of a jet

Explains 'Steel Hanging'
Ray Popp, who has been a steel
hanger for 21 years said a few
things about the intricacies of the
connecting work which has been
going on for the last four weeks.
The beams are first bolted into
place and then, after one section
of the building is completed, the
pieces are riveted. The riveting
crew started work with a clatter
last Thursday. Foreman of this
gang is "Smoky" Burke, from the
smoky city of Pittsburgh.
Asked if Ann Arbor's rainy cli-
mate affected the construction
work, Popp said the rain makes
the girders slippery and the men
must be extra careful in doing
the "squirrel" work. Popp denied
having any fears of high places,

for "if you start on the first floor
and work up, you just get used to
the height." He added that after
years of experience the connecting
work becomes second nature.
Meanwhile, the number of stu-
dents watching the progress of
the construction work on sunny
afternoons is growing. Most typi-
cal of comments heard by this
writer as he infiltrated among
one of these crowds were: "You'd
think those men up there would
fall, the way they throw those
bars around," and "I wouldn't do
that kind of work for double un-
ion wages."

unit in operation, according to
Karl Stevens, chairman of the
aeronautical engineering commit-
tee for the Open House. A small
scale model of a V-1 unit will be
in action, and according to Prof.
David T. Williams of the depart-
ment "it should provide noise and
excitement enough for every-
body."
All of the engines to be on ex-
hibition are used by the depart-
ment in research work here, Prof.
Williams explained. This research
is in the field of "design study,"
a stage of work which he de-
scribed as a "pre-blueprint exper-
imentation."
Emphasizing the great advances
that have been made in jet work
in the last few years, Prof. Wil-
liams said that the I-16 engine
developed only a few years ago is
now completely obsolete. "How-
ever, that sort of quick turnover
is inevitable in the work of a
brand new science."
Research work here is devoted
largely to missile propulsion,
which means that the department
deals more with rockets and ram
jets than with the heavy turbo-
jets used for aircraft, he contin-
ued. A good guess as to the nature
of future research may be made
from two experimental studies
that will be on display for the
Open House - a study of how
turbulence affects flame speed in
combustion and one on heat trans.-
fer in rocket motors.
Busses will leave from in front
of East Engineering Building for
Willow Run Airport every hour on
the hour from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m.
on the day of the Open House.
Guides will conduct the groups of
visitors to the various displays, so
that no hapless students will be
lost in the vast stretches of the

IEducators Hit
Teach ers for
Goin on Strike
(odemii Violation
Of Existing Contracts
LANSING, March 29- P -The
Michigan Education Association
came out against teacher strikes
today in a resolution passed unan-
imously by the 100 delegates to
the organization's annual conven-
tion here.
"As members of a profession
having high professional stand-
ards, and as individuals engaged
in essential public service, we be-
lieve that teachers should not par-
ticipate in strikes in violation of
existing contracts," the resolution
declared.
However, the resclution asserted
that the anti-strike pledge does
not mean that the organization
"condones inadequate salaries or
unsatisfactory working conditions
which some teacher groups have
sought to remedy by means of
strikes."
The organization approved reso-
lutions urging the elimination of
war emergency certificates for
teachers, and the reorganization
of school districts into larger
units "to provide more equalized
educational opportunities."
Kar)ins k-s Tax
Cl riies Recorded
The published statements of
Prof. Louis A. Karpinski, of the
mathematics department, on the
income tax reduction bill, recently
passed by the House, have been in-
serted in the Congressional Rec-
ord of March 26 by Rep. George
Sadowski (Rep., Mich.).
The statements, in which Prof.
Karpinski charged the tax cut
would be a "gift" to high income
groups, appeared in The Daily
