FROM SHIPS TO ROCKETS:
Varied Engineering Research
Puts 'U' Institute Near Top
By DICK EHRENBERG
Research ranging from harbors
and ships to rockets and the upper
atmosphere makes the University's
Engineering Research Institute
one of the five largest college re-
search organizations in the nation,
according to W. E. Quinsey, as-
sistant to the director of the In-
FOUNDED IN 1920 to aid small
business and industry in research
problems, the Institute does its re-
search on a contract basis and is
[DAILY OFFICIAL BULLETIN
a self-supporting organization ad-
One of the earliest develop-
ments of the ERI was the single-
phase motor. This motor, which
was the first to operate on
house current, can now be found
in the millions of sewing ma-
chines, vacuum sweepers, and
"In 1929, Prof. Wolfe of the
physics department discovered a
method for analysing steel spec-
troscopically thus cutting down
the time required for the analysis
from an hour to five minutes,
AMONG THE current projects
of the Institute is a U.S. Army
Signal Corps sponsored project at
White Sands, New Mexico. A study
of the upper-atmosphere is being
made there in conjunction with
the firing of the V-2 rockets.
"At Willow Run, the civil en-
gineering department is under-
taking a harbor relocation pro-

Of Black Feet
Four members of a campus fra-

job on their large black feet yes-
terday morning by the Ann Arbor
The group of Alpha Tau Omega
men were busily painting monster
tracks along S. University Ave.
sidewalks to publicize an upcom-
ing dance, when they were spot-
ted about 3 a.m. by a cruising
UNDER QUESTIONING by the
police, the young men with the
brushes and cans of black paint
admitted that they had already
left examples of their art work on
the door steps of most campus
sororities and women's dorms and
were merely expending their sur-
plus paint before trotting home
"It's only water paint," ex-
plained one of the group. "The
first rain will wash it all'away."
The police admitted that they
had no particular interest in pri-
vate door steps but they thought
that black feet were hardly ap-
propriate decoration for John Q.
The group was sent off for
brooms and buckets and by 5 a.m.
the sidewalks had been restored to
their normal condition.
