Scarred U. of Philippines
Needs Aid Desperately

If the Diag area of campus were

ippines after the battle for libera -
Juan Moran, '49E, Manila, com-
pared the pre-war campus of the'
University of the Philippines with
Michigan's central campus. "The
buildings were on a slightly small-
er scale," he said.

AFTER THE WAR, the campus
did not look like a university, he
"The buildings leaked and
there was no equipment at all."
Moran said.
"The library facilities, especially
in engineering school were prac-
tically non-existent," Jose Abreu,
of Manila said.
ABREU SAID that there were
no laboratories and the students
could do no research. "The only
things the students had to work

with were lecture notes and a very
few hard-to-get text books."
Students on this campus will
be asked to help rebuild the li-
brary of the University of the
Philippines in a tag day drive
The Philippine Drive, sponsored
by the Student Legislature is
aimed at eventually collecting
$50,000 for books for our war-
gutted sister institution.

ALL FUNDS collected will go
toward equipping the Hayden Me-
morial Library at the University
of the Philippines.
The University at Manila had
about 8,000 students before the
war and the enrollment last
year was only 4,000 according to
Abreu, who matriculated there
during and after the war, com-
ing to the University this fall.
"They held special entrance ex-
aminations because of the number
of students who wanted to get in,"
he said.
He said that there just was not

GOP Train
By Children
MT. VERNON, Ill.-(P)--Flying
tomatoes and rotten eggs and a
train mishap have attended Gov.
Thomas E. Dewey's campaign
swing through southern Illinois.
The Republican presidential
candidate's suit was splattered
when nearly a half dozen ripe to-
matoes were hurled at the rear
platform of his campaign train
during a stop here.
None of the missiles struck the
Dewey party, but one scored a di-
rect hit on a listener standin near
the platform and splattered onto
the train.
* * *
said the tomatoes were thrown
from a nearby roof by youngsters
who fled. Dewey made no refer-
ence to the incident in his talk.
A few minutes later, Dewey's
train was pelted with rotten
eggsuas it pulled into nearby
"They were rotten, I know, be-
cause I could smell them," said
R. L. Biles, porter on the seventh
car away from Dewey's.
* * *
DEWEY WAS not informed of
the egg tossing at the time.
However, as the train stopped
at Beaucoup, a crowd of about
1,000 persons surged toward the
rear platform to greet the can-
didate. Suddenly the train
backed up slowly and the crowd
scurried off the tracks.
"That's the first lunatic I've had
for an engineer," Dewey comment-
LEE TINDLE, 54, the engineer
who backed up, said later that
Dewey should not have called him
a lunatic "because he (Dewey)
didn't know what it was all about."
"I think just as much of
Dewey as I did before and that's
not very much," said Tindle, an
engineer for the Louisville and
Nashville railroad for 30 years.
Tindle said that because of mist
and smoke in the air he overran a
water tank at Beaucoup by about
eight or ten feet and backed up
slowly after "I gave the back up
"I was backing so slow thatnany-
body could easily have gotten out
of the way," he added.

Arthur Simm.
At the paper's organizational

Tryout positions are still open
for students on the art, features,

quirernent was that the student be
interested in education.
This does not mean that the
student must be in the educa-
tion school, although he urged
educatiotf majors to tryout for
the INKWELL staff. He pointed
out that the experience gained
on the INKWELL would later
prove valuable to the teacher
in putting out classroom papers.
After one semester of work on
the paper, tryouts may qualify for
the regular staff. There are al-
ways many openings bn the reg-
ular staff, Simms stated.
He asked that all stuuents in-

merous than the disadvantages.
The cost of setting up a steam
power plant is relatively not much
less expensive than constructing
an atomic power plant, Prof. Bar-
ker maintained.
Once the plant is set up, the
cost and inconvenience of trans-
porting and shoveling coal are
eliminated. In addition, because
tof the total absence of smoke,
the plant remains clean.
Among the disadvantages there
is the fact that a plant run by
atomic energy must be built on a
large scale. The generator must
be enclosed in a shell of cement,
from eight to fifteen feet thick.
If things go wrong, "you can't just
call a plumber," Prof. Barker stat-
power plants utilizing atomic en-
ergy is the radiation hazard and
the danger of gamma rays. This is
one reason why an atomic units
cannot be installed in one's home.
To live in an atmosphere filled
with neutrons would be fatal.
A final disadvantage is the
need for finding some way to
dispose of the radio-active by-
products of this reaction. These
wastes are now stored in huge
tanks and buried in the ground
to avoid the hazard of the radia-
In spite of the many seemingly
unsurmountable obstacles to find-
ing industrial applications of
atomic energy, Prof. Barker en-
couragingly stated, "We've faced
problems before and we can surely
face these. Power plants of this
sort are certainly feasible."
