PORTAGE LAKE LOOKOUT:
New 'U' Observatory Nearly Comnplete
By LEONARD GREENBAUM
The University's new observa-
tory located at Portage Lake took
another step towards completion
with the recent installation of its
The dome, 28 feet in diameter
and 41 feet above the ground, was
added to the modern structure a
year after the scheduled date.
THE OBSERVATORY was be-
gun in April, 1948, as a result of a
$100,000 grant from the MacGreg-
or Fund of Detroit and a $160,000
grant from the University.
The 24 inch field telescope
wVlhich will allow coverage of
wide areas of the sky is due to
arrive early this week.
Named after the late Dr. Curtis,
chairman of the Department of
Astronomy, from 1930 to 1942, the
telescope will be ready for use
shortly after the first of the year.

NEO-HETRAMINE, most suc-

treatment of colds, was recently
approved by the Pure Food and
Drug Administration for sale as
an "over the counter" product.
Dr. Forsythe called this gov-
ernmental action "an interesting
new development in the approval
of self-medication by non-medi-
This federal approval has re-
sulted in nation-wide advertis-
ing campaigns by companies
which manufacture the anti-
histamines for commercial use.
According to local pharmacists,
demand for the drugs in Ann
Arbor far exceeds the supply
available to wholesalers.
Dr. Forsythe cited several com-
plications which may result from
indiscriminate use of anti-hista-
Probably the most important of
these is the possibility of deaden-
