SUCCESS STORY:

New Veep Runs 'U' Finance

0

* * *

*

By RON WATTS
On the second floor of the Ad-
ministration Building, the Univer-
sity's newest and youngest veep-
37-year-old Wilbur K. Pierpont-
rassles with the administration's
complex problems of business and
finance.
Pierpont who took over his new
job on Feb. 1 has climbed ,from a
candidate for a master's degree in
business administration to vice
president in charge of business and
finance in 15 years.
* * *
"MY NEW JOB is very fascinat-
ing," Pierpont related. "However,
it does prohibit me somewhat from
enjoying personal contact with
students. I'm very interested in the
Student Legislature and hope to
establish many student contacts
through them and the President's
Conference."
Pierpont was recently made a
member of the newly formed
President's Conference, a group
to provide a closer working re-
lationship between the faculty
and administration and students.
He also aided the SL in obtain-
ing their new home at 122 S.
Forest Ave.
Born in the small town of Winn,
Mich., Pierpont spent his first 12
years enjoying "farm life." He
then moved to Mt. Pleasant where
he graduated from the high school
in 1930.
* s
HE CONTINUED his education
at Central Michigan College of
Education, where he played varstiy
basketball for three years. In 1934
Rierpont graduated from Central
Michigan with honors.
Pierpont took over his first
teaching job at Belding, Mich.
He taught mathematics and
coached basketball. "After two
years I decided that teaching
mathematics in high school
wasn't exactly what I wanted to
do, so I came to the University,"
he said.
By 1942 Pierpont had earned a
master's degree in business admin-
istration and a doctor's degree in
philosophy. In 1941 he attended
the Brookings Institution for eight
months.
* * *
DURING THE WAR Pierpont
worked as an accountant and price
analyst with the OPA, Army and
Navy.
Returning to the University in
Astronomers
To Meet Here
The astronomy department will
be host to a conference of mid-
western astronomers at 2:30 p.m.
today in Rackham Auditorium.
Members of the department will
speak on recent solar discoveries
made at the University's observa-
tory on Lake Angelus.
A dinner at the Union will follow
the conference.

Mme.Pandii
To Dedicate.
'U' Library
Mme. Vijayalakshmi Pandit, am-
bassador from India to the United
States, will visit the campus on
Tuesday, March 13, to take part
in the presentation of the Ghandi
Library to the University.
She will speak on "The Place of
Ghandi in the Modern World" at
the ceremony.
THE PRESENTATION will take
place at 4:15 p.m. in the Rackham
Lecture Hall. K. N. Sahaya, presi-
dent of the India Students Associa-
tion, will present a check to Mme.
Pandit who will in turn present it
to President Alexander G. Ruth-
ven.
The idea for a Ghandi Library
at the University was originated
by the Indian Students Associa-
tion on the campus.
The Indian students with the
help of Indian Nationals in De-
troit and Chicago as well as the
staff of the Indian Embassy at
Washington collected some books
about Ghandi in addition to ob-
taining $500 to add to the library.
The purpose of the Ghandi
Memorial Project is to present to
the University the books written
by Ghandi and his colleagues as
well as the books written in many
languages about his life and work.
Books about the various aspects of
Indian culture are also included.
The Ghandi Memorial Library
will be a self-perpetuating project,
as new Indian students to the Uni-
versity will contribute to the
Library funds while those students
returning to India will promote the
project among their countrymen.

Engineers Test for Better Billboards

-Daily-Burt Sapowitch
UNIVERSITY VICE-PRESIDENT,' WILBUR K. PIERPONT
* * * * * *

1946 he was made an assistant
professor of accounting and as-
sistant to the vice president. A
year later he was named con-
troller.
Acting in his new job as vice
president in charge of business and
finance, Pierpont is faced with the
problems of the University's fi-
nancial program.
EXPRESSING his opinion on a
university-run private commercial
enterprise as a method of finance,
he believed that educational in-
stitutions have many problems of
their own without taking on the
additional duties of running such
private enterprises.
"It seems to be out of their
field," he reasoned. "However,
we must consider that the situa-
tion is constantly changing. For
example, before 1930 the Univer-
sity thought they should remain
out of the field of student hous-
ing. Then the policy shifted
when the University believed
this service to be one of their re-
sponsibilities."
As for government aid to educa-
tion, Pierpont believes that it is
the tendency for institutions to
turn to the federal government
Alumni Increase
The 1,455 graduates who received
their degrees in February have
raised the total number of living
University alumni to 136,400, ac-
cording to records kept at the{
Alumni Catalog Office.I

when state and local agencies fail
to provide funds. "However," he
emphasized strongly, "this is to be
deplored unless there is no other
alternative to the maintenance of
strong educational institutions.

Scenery-lovers may despair, but
billboards seem due to get a new
lease on life from tests now being
performed in a wind tunnel by the
University's Engineering Research
Institute.
The institute is testing how wind
affects outdoor signs. An outdoor
advertisers' association will pay for
the tests in hope of designing bill-

boards which will defy the strong-
est gales.
A LARGE FAN blows 70-mile-
an-hour winds through the tunnel
at a model of an outdoor advertis-
ing structure.
The model is one foot high
and two feet wide, about one-

twelfth the size of an ordinary
billboard.
In the model 36 holes, one-
fiftieth of an inch in diameter,
have been drilled. A measuring de-
vice connected to them registers
how hard the wind hits the model
and where it hits hardest.
* * *
THESE TINY HOLES are drilled
into half the area of one side of
the "billboard" so by changing the
model's position the wind's ef-
fects on every part can be record-
ed, according to Prof. Edgar
Lesher, who is supervising the test.
Though the big fan will blow
only 70-mile winds the results
can be interpreted to apply to
higher and lower wind velocities.
Prof. Lesher predicted several
hundred test runs in the wind tun-
nel will give engineers the infor-
mation to design signs to with-
stand nature's biggest blows.

TV Program
Will Feature
'MagicFlute'
Selected excerpts and selections
of "The Magic Flute" which open-
ed Thursday will be televised on
the University's television hour
over WWJ-TV Sunday.
The Department of Speech-
Music School production will be
the subject of the campus Tele-
tour, and will extend the time of
the broadcast 30 minutes. The spe-
cial selections of the Mozart opera
will be televised directly from
Lydia Mendelssohn theatre from
1:40 p.m. until 2:30 p.m.
* * *
IN ORDER for students to see
the production a local music shop
has volunteered several TV sets
which will be set up in the Grand
Rapids room of the League.
Generally, members of the cast
are not flustered at the p-os-
pect of making their TV debut.
They were all given a choice in
the matter, because of extra re-
hearsals and additional time
needed, but no one has voiced a
desire to be out of the TV per-
formance.
Joan Zapf, '52SM, said "Most of
us are a little worried about how
we'll look,'but we're really too busy
with rehearsals to think much
about it."
Carol Wilder, Grad, echoed Miss
Zapf. "We haven't heard too much
about it yet and don't know just
what will be televised. But it's a
good chance to work in the medium
of television, and I'm glad of it."
