Ever want to study in a room
devoid of all noise?
It's not as yet available for stu-
dents, but the U.S. Signal Corps
at Fort Monmouth, N.J., the other
day perfected a "Silent Chamber~
that produces absolute stillness,
according to word received here
yesterday by Major Howard E.
Porter, campus ROTC Signal
Corps Chief.
Known scientifically as an an-
echoic-no echo-chamber, it sim-
ulates sound conditions found in
the very center of the desert. Sig-
nal Corps engineers designed and
constructed it for the testing of
delicate instruments, Major Potter
said.
* * *
MORE SPECIFICALLY, the
chamber is supposed to determine
operational accuracies of micro-
phones, headsets, loudspeakers and
other items requiring minute ex-
amination.
"Guinea pig" engineers foundF

they could only expose them-
selves to the effects of sound
void for thirty minutes before
experiencing pronounced dis-
comfort, he noted.
After the chamber's completion,
Fort Monmouth engineers then
made arrangements whereby they
could read- indicators from the
outside. They also learned the
presence of anyone inside im-
paired the overall efficiency of
tests.
* * *
FOLLOWING EXTENSIVE ex-
perimentation, fiberglass was
found the most sound-absorbent
material available. A combination
of fiberglass in the form of
wedges absorbed all sound en-
ergy, transforming it into heat,
by the time it had been reflected
to the small end, he said.
"This treatment of the walls,
floor and ceiling of a radio broad-
casting studio, to create absolute
silence, would seem ideal," Major
Porter added.

(Editor's Note: This is the third in
a series of four interpretive articles
designed to acquaint students with
the Student Legislature-to hich
they will elect 25 representatives
next Tuesday and Wednesday.)
