gineering college was elected sec-
retary-treasurer of the Michigan
Section of the American Society of
Civil Engineers at the Society's
regular monthly meeting last week
THE BIRD, which is so rare
that it has not even been included
in recent books on Mexican birds,
was discovered by a group of orni-
thologists from Louisiana State
Not only did they rediscover
the bird, which hasn't been
seen for about 100 years, but
they also succeeded in getting
some young and vadult speci-

Sutton, will use a single panel-

bird, the other members of the
party will collect specimensand
materials for the Louisiana State
University project of a state-wide
study of the birds of San Luis

3) The IFC reconsideration
motion, by Mike McNerney, '53,
calling on the IFC to change its
mind on its bias stand and ac-
ceptthe study committee report.
After an hbur of debate on the
three plans, a straw vote was taken
to decide the committee of the
whole's report back tothe floor.
After the McNerney motion was
eliminated in a preliminary ballot,
the committee chose the second
policy by a 22-14 count.
ATTACHED TO both the time
limit and study committee mo-
tions was a preamble aimed at re-
futing the "property rights" argu-
ments used by retired University
President Alexander G. Ruthven in
vetoing last year's similar time
Nine specific regential and
SAC rulings, such as drinking
restrictions, women's hours cur-
tailments and driving regula-
tions, were listed as alleged vio-
lations of "property rights."
In supporting his motion, Beers
emphasized that he and co-author
Miss Marks were in favor of the
time limit idea, but were con-
vinced that there was no chance
of it clearing both SAC and Presi-
dent Harlan H. Hatcher now.
"A bird in the hand is worth
several in the bush." he said. "We
should get the strongest measure
that is practical-and this is as
strong a motion as would have a
chance of University clearance."
*) * *
BEERS POINTED out further
that if SL forced the time limit
issue again now and it was vetoed
or turned down by the SAC, it
would make a time limit impossi-
ble for a long time.
"However, if we work gradu-
ally, we may be able to obtain
the time limit sooner," he rea-
Baker, however, s p o k e out
against "half-hearted measures."
Conversations with some of the
top men in the Law School have
indicated that the University's
"property rights' argument is com-
pletely untenable legally, he add-
An outstanding contribution to
scientific knowledge has been
made by the astronomy depart-
ment in the form of a Photometric
Atlas of the Near Infra-Red Solar
The men who compiled this solar
atlas are Prof. Leo Goldberg, di-
rector of the University Observa-
tory, Prof. Orren C. Mohler, assist-
ant director of the McMath-Hul-
bert Observatory, and Prof. A.
Keith Pierce, director of the Mc-
IN A REVIEW of the atlas in
the Michigan Alumnus, the work
is predicted to be "hailed by as-
tronomers and other spectrosco-
pists as marking an epoch."

ies providing the basis for the
whole science of astrophysics.
The new solar atlas supple-
ments and extends earlier obser-
vations, providing a detailed map
in a range completely outside that

The discovery of this new in-
formation has been made possible
by a new method of recording, and
by using a recently developed
photo-cell, which responds to
much, longer wave lengths than
any previously available.
Among the new facts presented
about solar phenomena, those con-
cerning the upper atmosphere of
the earth have been the most
striking to astronomers.
To Be Planned
The Wolverine club is planning
to sponsor a train trip to Florida
for students when spring vacation
Plans have been laid for char-

Both the round-trip train jour-
ney and hotel accommodations
will be offered at reduced rates.
This is the first time that the
Wolverine Cub has sponsored a
