It is a copy of a diamond which
is found in 1900 in the eastern

THE SIZE of a diamond, how-
ever, is not the most important
factor in determining its value.
"The two main characteristics
to look for in a diamond are its
color and flaws. If the rough
crystal is free from all color or
.is slightly tinged, this grada-
tion in color can make a big
difference in its cash value. Or
if it has -many flaws, this, too,
can cut down the value," he

and operation of the 300-million-

According to Prof. A. E. White,
director of the University's En-
gineering Research Institute, the
synchrotron will aid physicists to
study the center of the atom by
providing them with means for
speeding up electrons to within a
fraction of the speed of light,
thereby enabling them to investi-
gate the structure of the protons
in the center of the atom.

"But a poor cutting job can be
replaced with a good one-and
the price of the diamond will then
automatically- rise. Cutting a
diamond just right is important.
For cutting-or faceting as it is
often called-is simply slanting
the cut on the diamond surface
so that the maximum amount of
light will be reflected. This re-
sults in the brilliance of a dia-

his fortune to smithereens."

MEANWHILE, rumors flew
through Michigan StaterCollege
that a "green hair" fad may be
underwayamong MSC coeds. The
rumor was 'attributed to the suc-
cess one "dyed green" freshman
coed had had in attracting the
attention of State collegians.
Since the freshman dyed her
tresses green, she has admitted
an upswing jin her popularity.
Her stock has risen and so has
the number of her dates.
BUT IF green hair was troub-
ling State's males, coedskwere,
equally perturbed over the kissing
problem in front of women's dor-
the following letter to the editor
of the Michigan State News:
We live in East Mayo dormi-
tory and we have a new rule
which states there will be no
kissing in front of the dorm in
the light or on the steps. The
reason given for the rule is that
the sight is extremely unplea-
sant to passersby. The question
is, who passes by that time of
night except students who are
certainly used to the light?
"Whenever we come home the
saying is 'take to the woods.' What
looks worse, kissing in front of the
dorm or dragging your date into
