Mock Court
Martial Set
For Today
The case of the United States
versus Private Richard E. Roe will
be presented by the University's
ROTC unit at 7:30 p.m. today in
Kellogg Auditorium in a mock
military court trial.
Court martial procedure as pre-
scribed in the new Uniform Code
of Military Justice will be used.
Conducting the trial will be mem-
bers of the ROTC's Military Law
and Boards course.
Using a script prepared by Lieu-
tenant Larry Storm, a graduate of
the Law School, the trial partici-
pants will attempt to demonstrate
how the new military code oper-
ates, in the case of a desertion
charge. /
IN PREPARING for the trial,
Lieut. Storm, in addition to writ-
ing the script, drew up all the
necessary forms required before
such a trial could take place.
The trial, according to Lieut.
Storm, is designed to give mem-
bers of his class experience in
trial procedure. He also pointed
out that it would benefit all men
who expect to be in one of the
armed forces.
"From experience, I can say that
at one time or another in a man's'
military career, he will be connect-
ed with just such a court martial
procedure," he said.
LIEUT. STORM also declared
that the trial will be a general
court martial, as distinguished
from lower forms. "This is the
first time something like this has
been attempted here and the pro-
cedure represents a code of mili-
tary law that is used by all parts
of the Armed Forces.
All students and townspeople are
invited to attend the proceedings.
Among those who have received
special invitations are Dean E.
Blythe Stason of the law school
and Washtenaw . Circuit Court
Judge Joseph R. Breakey.

A supersonic wind tunnel at bar-
gain rates was accepted by the
Board of Regents at their October
For a payment of one half per-
cent on the assessed valuation of
the former Air Force project, the
wind tunnel which has been in
operation at Willow Run Airport

was secured by the Regents for
University Projects.
* * *
THE TUNNEL was transferred
from the U.S. Air Force through
the Surplus Property Act, accord-
ing to Prof. A. M. Kuethe, chair-
man of the University Wind Tun-
nel committee.
The supersonic tunnel, which



produces wind velocities four
times the speed of sound, will
be used for training and re-
search by the aeronautical engi-
neering department.
Built in 1947 as a part of "Wiz-
ard," the Air Force guided missle
research program, the tunnel is
located in a double hanger on the
Willow Run Airport site. The to-

HEART OF THE tunnel is at
eight by 11 inch rectangular work-
ing section about 14 inches long,
In this section accurate scale mo
dels are placed and subjected t
supersonic winds. The model
performances are observed throug
a glass porthole.
Ten vacuum chambers built
from old oil tanks and a surplus
barrage balloon are the essen-
tials of the wind generator. Air
is pumped out of the tanks,
leaving a vacuum, and through1
a dryer into the balloon, where
it is stored until the tunnel is
ready to operate.
When the vacuum tanks Xre re-
opened, the cleaned and dried air
rushes from the balloon through
the tunnel at speeds greate' than
2,000 miles per hour.

THE WIND TUNNEL is staffed
by twelve graduate students and
research employees workingreither
part or full time. Some of the re-
cent projects have been testing
wing sections and the interferen-
ces between the wing and fuselage
of an airplane.
According to Prof. Kuetl'e, the
most important use of the tunnel
has been to train graduate stu-
dents in wind tunnel operation
and in research and testing tech-
