Reports from several of the na-
tion's colleges indicate that edu-
cational institutions are still lead-
ing the way in keeping America
abreast of the latest technologi-
al developments.
At the University of Wisconsin
a new atomic research laboratory
is now open for business. The new
laboratory, constructed largely
underground, houses an atom
smasher which saw service in
atomic research on wartime pro-
jects. Forty-eight graduate stu-
dents are currertly doing fe-
search in nuclear physics at the
new lab.
From the University of Cali-
fornia comes word that a local
professor has designed a new,
over-size, atom smasher. Profes-
sor Ernest Lawrence revealed that
his newly designed atom smasher
will dwarf the present cyclotron.
Construction plans for the huge
atom smasher are still in the em-
bryo stage.
Further technological advances
are being made at the University
of Minnesota where a new super-
sonic wind tunnel has just swung
into operation. The tunnel, which
develops speeds up to 2,100 miles
per hour or 3.5 times the speed of
sound, is the first of its kind to
make studies on jet-propelled air-
A group of news briefs from
other colleges around the nation
indicate that students are inter-
ested in items ranging from the
high cost of living to a current
wave of fraternity house robber-
ies similar to the crime wave which
has recently hit fraternities here.
At the University of California
student-veterans have formed a
cooperative store to beat high
living costs. Students living at
Codornices Village, similar to Wil-
low Village here, have pooled their
resources to buy foodstuffs. The
married students have been able
to save as much as 50 per cent on
food.bills by purchasing at whole-
sale rates.
At the University of Missouri
a Congressional committee heard
testimony from college students
and officials on the high cost of
living. The travelling committee
is making a nation-wide survey
of. living costs and has stopped
at several college towns to inves-
tigate living costs.
Reports in the Michigan State
College student newspaper indicate
that fraternities are being plagued
with a crime wave. Last week-end
four fraternity houses were rob-
bed by thieves who ransacked the
buildings while occupants slept.
"Nearly $500 in cash and valuables
were taken by thieves at the MSC

At the University of Virginia
students have recently opened
their own broadcasting station.
The student-operated station was
given a loan by the university to
meet initial costs. The new sta-
tion, whose call letters are WVA,
will broadcast nine hours each
day. Operation of the station is
classified as an extra-curricular
student activity and any student
may try his hand at broadcasting.
A statistician says that total
enrollment in all the colleges of
the country will hit the 2,500,000
marker this year. Dr. Raymond
Walters, president of the Univer-.

sity of Cincinnati, predicts that
the fall peak will be more than
50 per cent of that recorded in
pre-war days. However he points
out that there has been a decided
drop in the number of new vet-
erans flowing into the nation's
The student newspaper at the
University of Illinois has just won
a battle to get student repreSen-
tation on the university aisci-
plinary committee. Former]y stu-
dents who violated campus rules
at Illinois were tried by an all
faculty group. Recently the Daily
Illini launched a campaign to get
students represented on the group.
Now it has been announced that
three students will be added to
the group which handles Illini
disciplinary measures.
The campus cop at the Univer-
sity of Washington had a red face
the other day. Sgt. O. S. Buehler,
who spends most of his time tic-
keting student parking violators,
recently committed a parking er-
ror himself and was picked up
by Seattle police. He was fined
in court and now has a slightly
hang-dog look.
Also at the University of Wash-
ington four male students found
themselves outnumbered by 300
women in a home economics
course. 'The f' ur men - all husky
veteran', -are the only men en-
rolled in *the home ec. course.
