NEW YORK. Jan. 12-U(> -
Two rescue ships, battling dan-
gerously high seas, tonight res-
cued all 46 persons who aban-
doned the flaming Joseph V. Con-
nolly, army "funeral ship," in the
Ncrth Atlantic early today.
The survivors-45 crewmen and
one passenger--were in lifeboats
about nine hours in high seas
whipped by a northeast gale be-
fore being picked up.
The army said 27 of the men
were taken aboard the Union Vic-
tory and 19 aboard the Gen. R. E.
Callan, another army transport.
Earlier, the coast guard an-
nounced one of its radio stations
at Southwest Harbor, Me., had
intercepted a message from the
General Callan, telling one of the
search planes "that four boats and
all survivors have been picked
The three of the survivors on
the Union Victory were believed
seriously injured, the Coast
Guard said. It did not have their
names, or the nature of their in-
Both the General Callan and
the Union Victory were bound for
Europe before the rescues but
were directed by the Coast Guard
to proceed to Halifax, Newfound-
land, with the Connolly's survi-
The Connolly, which inaugurat-
ed the return of American war

was reported by the Coast Guard
to be a total loss.

When the Extension Service's
fly-casting course proved "bait"
for New York humor recently, no
one was more surprised than Prof.
Karl F. Lagler, who teaches it.
A friend in Chicago to whom he
paid a holiday visit first startled
Prof. Lagler with the squib, which
the magazine had gleefully la-
belled, "Department of Higher Ed-
ucation." It continued, "From a

Reaction to the unsought pub-
licity has included a postcard from
Union, S.C., which read something
like this: "Is it Bull or Bulletin
about course in fly-casting? Ad-
What the New Yorker didn't,
know, and what The Daily report-
ed last year, is that the course has
been taught in Barbour-Water-
man gym, as well as in the audi-
torium of the Rackham Memorial
Building in Detroit.
"Fly-casting in a lecture hall"
proved one of the Extension
Service's most popular Detroit
courses last spring. More than 100
lawyers, mill-hands, dentists and
doctors enrolled for the training,
which included such fine points
of rod and reel science as "what

is being done to shorten time be-
tween bites."
This spring, besides the 12-week
course in Detroit, which Prof. Lag-
ler will tutor himself. an eight-
week bait- and fly-casting course,
taught by one of his students, will
be offered on campus the last half
of the semester. for one-half point
PEM credit. Headquarters will
again be Waterman, with sunny

Students who want to angle for
the real thing on their own can
use the course's equipment, and
the class may make field trips to
nearby waters.
Prof. Lagler is thinking about
starting a course for women this
summer, so they won't have to be
doomed to the fate of "fishing
widows." Any coed who's inter-
ested should let either Dr. Mar-
garet Bell or Prof. Howard C. Lei-
bee know.

Engineers Will
Attach Cancer
With 70-ft. Bat
When University Chemical en-
gineers swing at the disease can-
cer, they will use a baseball bat
70 feet long.
Four long pipes, almost the
thickness of baseball bats, ex-
tend through five floors of the
East Engineering Building and
will be used in the production of
rare isotopes, vital in cancer re-
search work.
"Isotopes are heavy elements-
they have atomic weights larger
than more common atoms. Their
weight difference is a 'label' or
'tag' that can be used to locate
them," Prof. Robert R. White, of
the chemical engineering depart-
ment, said.
Heavy oxygen and heavy sul-
phur produced will be used by
physiologists to feed to cancer pa-
tients. Blood tests will then locate
the isotopes and help clear up the
mysteries of cancer growth and
development, according to Prof.
"The first of the four pipes will
go into use in about a month. The
rest willl be completed later."
From the basement of the
building to the fifth floor, the
tubes extend through -i.eight-
inch slot, five feet long, cut ip
each intervening floor. *
To produce heavy oxygen iso-
topes, atomic weight 18, carbon
dioxide is pumped into the bot-
tom of the pipe and bicarbonate
ions in solution, into the top. Car-
bon dioxide taken from the top
of the tube is "enriched" with
heaxy oxygen, according to Prof.

heading for transition work' in jets. Tlhe
pay? Now that I'm a pilot, $336 a month,
plus $500 for each year of active duty. And
there's plenty of room for promotions.
"But that's not the real point. Somei men
belong in the air. They were born wanting
wings-with the action, the pride, the free-

way to have all that, along wit h the world's
finest flying training, than to join the Avia-

aviation or in the Air Force-is as wide open
as the horizon. If you want the fast-moving
life, why not drop around to the Recruiting
Station in your community or the nearest
Air Force installation."
