Laurence To Deliver Talk
On Hydrogen Bomb at Hill
William Laurence, the only
newspaper man in history to re-
ceive the Pulitzer Prize twice for
reporting, will deliver a lecture en-
titled "The Truth About the Hy-
drogen Bomb' at 8 p.m., tomorrow
in Hill Auditorium.
His address will be the fourth
in the current Oratorical Lecture

AS SCIENCE Reporter of the
New York Times since 1930, Lau-
rence's career reached its peak in
1945 when the War Department
chose him to prepare the atomic
bomb story for the public.
In order to get a complete and
accurate account of the secret,
he was a visitor at the Los Ala-
mos, New Mexico bomb labora-
tory and witnessed the test
bombing on July 16 in the New
Before returning to the Times
office, Laurence flew with the air-
men who dropped the world shak-
ing bomb on Nagasaki and then
was present when the dangers of
radio-activity were tested at the
New Mexico testing ground.
AFTER FINISHING this assign-
ment, Laurence began a series of
articles on the development and
use of the atomic bomb. He then
turned to a study of the hydrogen
bomb and has now a wealth of ma-
terial on the subject.
In 1949 Laurence received the
award for the best newspaper re-
porting on medical science and
public health for his articles on
the development of cortisone and
Oddly enough it took a job with
a florist to start Laurence off in
college and then go on to become
a world famous reporter. While
delivering a funeral wreath in
Cambridge, Mass., he passed Har-
vard University and was determin-
ed to study there. After earning
money for the tuition he enrolled
as a full time student.
Upon graduation Laurence was
awarded the distinction of cum
laude in philosophy. After school
he turned to free lance writing
and then reporting.
Tickets for the lecture are on
sale at the Hill Auditorium box of-
fice. They are priced at $1.50, $1.20

The quest for closer cooperation
between the Union and campus ac-
tivities will get a new push this
week with Saturday's Regional
Conference of College Unions.
The problem of the Union's re-
juvenation has currently been re-
ceiving close attention from the
Union's newly-established Liason
Committee, composed of a nurmber
of campus leaders.

THE CONFERENCE, according
to Dade Connell, '53, of the Union's
publicity staff, may produce some
pertinent advice on the extension
of certain Union privileges to co-
eds. This proposal aroused con-
siderable controversy when it was
recently brought up before the
Many of the schools partici-
pating in the conference, Con-
nell pointed out, have coeduca-
tional student centers. But these,
he added, usually have no coun-
terpart of our League.
Top priority on the conference
agenda, according to John Kathe,
'52, Union conference host,"will be
given to a discussion of better in-
tegration of campus groups with
college union facilities.

"WHAT WE WANT to find out,"
Kathe said, "is how other cam-
puses are handling our common
problems and whether we can
make good use of their solutions to

Then followed some speeches
and a bit of cheering. After which

good words for the team.

was heard to murmur, "Wonder-

Directed by Prof. Hygh Nor-
ton, the play depicts Caesar's
love for Cleopatra from his ar-
rival in Egypt until his depart-
ure for Rome.
In one of his best character por-
trayals, Shaw presents Cleopatra in
a manner completely different
than Shakespeare's "Anthony and
Cleopatra." He treats her at first,
as a young and innocent sovereign
and then shows how, through Cae-
sar's teaching, she became the
great and merciless queen she is
believed to have been,
The first presentation of the
play was given in the United
States in 1906, but Shaw did not
attend. Last year the play was
done on Broadway with Cedric
Harwicke and Lilli Palmer-in the
title roles. It was .a critical and
box office success. After the run
of the play, Harwicke appeared
here for the 1950 Ann Arbor
