While the Skystreak was more
or less a conventionally designed
plane, the Skyrocket is of radical
appearance. Its length is 45 feet
and its wing span only 25, in itself
a sharp departuire from conven-
tional design. Tail and wings are
markedly swept back.
The new plane will be tested at
the Muroc Dry Lake Air Force
Test Center, but the Navy gave no
indication as to when it will be
taken up or who will fly it.
Fuel tanks are accommodated
in the fuselage, rather than the
wings, so the body of the plane is
considerably wider than that of
the thin, tublar Skystreak. The
fuselage tapers down to a needle-
like point in front, and engineers
have dubbed it "the flying sword-

0ld Age Study
Social adjustment problems of
older people are now being inves-
tigated by the University's Insti-
tute for Human Adjustment, ac-
cording to Clark Tibbitts, director.
The new research project has
been undertaken to determine
some of the problems older per-
sons face wxhen changing their
employment status, family rela-
tions and associations with
church and social groups.
Problems of older people have
been intensified because of
changing conditions of family liv-
ing, as well as by the fact that the
older portion of the population is
steadily increasing, Tibbitts
pointed out. He explained that in
earlier times family income and
large houses made it more con-
venient for older persons to be
cared for than is possible with the
present pattern of city living, and
with the liabilities of industrial
Woodrow W. Hunter, assistant
director of the Institute, will di-
rect the research for the project.
A survey of a selected group of
persons above 60 will be carried
out. Personal interviews with the
individuals will be conducted to
obtain a life history of each show-
ing the changing relationship's
with family and society that re-
sult from increasing age.
Information gained in the study
is expected to be of particular help
to middle-aged and older persons
in planning their later years. It
should also be of aid to employers
with positions available for older
persons, and to social agencies,
churches and other organizations
especially concerned with older
people, Hunter said.
