Cancer Research Now
Cancer is a world problem
there is stagnation in research

This is not Yankee imperia:
he declared, but a desire to

Take Short Course
Midwestern supervisors of truck-
ing fleets and bus companies are
meeting here for a one-week train-
ing course in commercial carrier
safety and carrier training.
Included among the 48 trainees
participating in the program con-
ducted by the College of Engineer-
ing and the 'U' Extension Service
are members of the Detroit and
Ann Arbor police and fire depart-
attacked the iron curtain trials of
churchmen yesterday as a fresh
phase of Communist opposition to
religion and free thought.
Sir Alexander Cadogan, British
delegate, told the special political
committee of the UN Assembly
that Britain joins the United
States in supporting a Bolivian
move to keep the cases before the
UN until the September assembly.

THIS WOULD permit the UN to
act if nothing comes of proposals
to settle the disputes over the re-
ligious trials through the peace
treaties with Bulgaria and Hun-
The committee is debating
what to do about the trials of
Josef Cardinal Mindszenty of
Hungary and of 15 Protestant
clergymen in Bulgaria.
Australia demanded the UN set
up a special investigating com-,
mittee to be sent to Europe and
inquire into the situation.
* * *
THIS IS similar to a proposal
by Cuba. The United States turned
down the Cuban proposal and gave
its support to the Bolivian resolu-
Cadogan reviewed the trial of
Cardinal Mindszenty and said
the Hungarian government's
yellow book on the case issued
last Jan. 19 showed the "Hun-
garian government had pre-
judged the result of the trial
and would have considered it a
disaster if the trial had resulted
in an acquittal."
Mindszenty was sentenced in
February to life imprisonment for
crimes against the state.
DETROIT-Day-dreaming is a
necessary part of growing up. It
gives the child a chance to coor-
dinate his experiences and ideas.
Child psychiatrists and educators
now recognize it as a healthy out-
let for pent-up emotions.
By PETER HOTTON
Not being satisfied with visiting
a brewery for experience in chemi-
cal engineering, 70 members of
the student chapter American So-
ciety of Chemical Engineers vis-
ited a plant which makes the
stronger stuff -Hiram Walker
Before the tour of the distil-
leries, located in Windsor, Ontario,
the engineers were treated to lunch
in the plant cafeteria-the other
refreshments didn't come until
after the trip, according to Fred
Keck, one of the members who
made the field trip.

RAW MATERIALS for whisky
are usually the same, he declared,
malt, corn and barley. "In their
long journey to the finished joy-
juice, the grain is first soaked in
plain water, then into a mash, in-
cluding shells, hulls and anything
else that happens to be present,"
The mash, which isn't too
pleasant looking, Keck said, is
then steeped in huge cypress
vats for 72 hours, and trans-
ferred to big distilling columns,
40 feet high and seven in diam-
eter, where 600 gallons are dis-
c tilled an hour.
"The pure white whiskey is put
into special Arkansas oak barrels
for aging, Keck explained. "To
take the natural wood alcohol out
of the barrels so it won't interfere
with that of the whiskey, they are
AFTER AGING for six years,
the chunks of charcoal which get
into the whiskey are filtered out,
and the liquid is in its finished
state-a golden-brown taste-tan-
talizing drink-to some people,
Keck declared. The golden color
is simply the result of the char-
coal, he added.
"After the six years of aging
are up, the whiskey is 'bottled in
bond and ready for the cus-
tomer," Keck said.
"'Bottled in bond' means that
the whiskey is bottled under the
national revenue laws of Canada."
In the aging time the whiskey
evaporated some 35 per cent
through the wood pores-and the
company is given 35 per cent off
on taxes," he added.
* * *
"BUT IF the whiskey evaporates
less, the company will be taxed
more," Keck said. "If it evaporates
more, the tax remains the same
and the company loses."
The distilleries keep 300,000
barrels of Canadian Club in the
aging vaults each year-the
whiskey they're making now
you'll be drinking in 1955, he ob-
"After the tour, when we didn't
have to observe the intricate plant
functions, we became intimately
acquainted with the company's
product. The bus drivers drank
ginger ale," Keck said.
