(Daily City Editor)
Newsmen from papers and press services throughout this part of
the state have been called to a special University-arranged press con-
ference at 9 a.m. this morning to hear an announcement of consider-
able significance to the future of the University and the community
of Ann Arbor.
Although no official advance word has been given on the nature
of the press announcement, The Daily has learned from numerous
unquestionable sources that it will deal with the long-contemplated
northward expansion of the University to new and untouched lands
north of the Huron River.
* * * *
THE ADMINISTRATION itself has maintained an official silence
on the subject up to now. It is known, however, that the purpose of
the multi-million dollar development is to provide the University with
a large open land area for its rapidly expanding research program.

The entire development is expected to eventually provide the
University with a unique "research campus' in the rolling hills
north of the river.
Complete details will be revealed at this morning's press confer-,
ence, but the following information can be given with little question
as to its authenticity:
The project will cover two hundred acres of land which the Uni-
versity has bought up during the past two years. Specifically, it will
be located northeast of Ann Arbor near the newly-completed Veterans
Administration Hospital.
Among buildings scheduled for the area is the long-awaited
structure which will house the student-inspired Michigan Memor-
ial Phoenix Project for atomic energy research.
Also planned is a building for the Engineering Research Institute,
a dynamically growing arm of the University which, according to
published reports, last year handled more than $3,000,000 in research
contracts from government and industry.




The Daily has learned that construction will begin shortly on
both buildings.
TOP ADMINISTRATORS have declined to say anything specific
about the project, but with involvement of scores of persons and
practically every department on the east side of campus it could hard-
ly be kept a secret.
Many of these departments will eventually move to the new
area themselves. Laboratories for automotive research, aircraft
study and various other engineering projects have been mentioned
for inclusion in the area, along with atomic research programs.
It is understood, however, that definite plans for transplanting
many University branches to the center are not yet completely formu-
lated. Some sources predict it will take years before the coitem-
plated research and development center assumes its full proportions.
A."master plan" has reportedly already been drawn up, however,
allocating much of the land to specific departments and projects.
Funds have already been raised for the Phoenix Bldg. and
the Engineering Research Institute.
The Institute has existed on campus for 30 years and has led
research on more than 2,000 subjects during this time. Its chairman
is Prof. A. E. White. As now contemplated, the new building will
contain special meeting rooms dedicated to the late Dean Mortimer
E. Cooley of the engineering college, with the remainder devoted to
The Phoenix Project Bldg. will probably house labs for study
of strongly radioactive materials, with research on substances of a
lesser radioactivity destined to remain in Ann Arbor for the present.
The Phoenix Project is headed by Dean Ralph A. Sawyer of the
graduate school.
ONCE IT GETS UNDER WAY, the new campus center is ex-
pected to perform a twofold purpose for the University. It will fur-
nish sufficient space for expansion in future years, and it will re-
lieve many buildings within the city of overcrowding.
A tremendous amount of preliminary planning has gone into
the new center, and thediscussions will probably continue for
some time in the future. An important step was taken last night
when University administrators met with leading citizens of Ann
jArbor to talk the subject over.
At today's press conference the news will at last be released to
the general public. Newsmen will gather in the small ballroom ofthe
Union for the announcement. There they will hear the University give
official recognition of the great role that work of a strictly research
nature is coming to play in campus life.
And they will hear full details of a plan which is destined to.
strengthen even further the University's reputation as a leading re-
search institution and bring its facilities to the attention of govern-
ment officials and businessmen throughout the nation.

THE RACE for control over
many campus projects such as
Tug Week, Homecoming Dance
and University Day, between Un-
ion, SL, and similar organizations
is cited as evidence that often two
groups are set up to do a job one
could handle,.
A "reform" would probably
- resun in a scrapping of the
X present SL constitution, and
creating a new and stronger

Persistent criticisms have been

self. If the present set-up is even-
n tually scrapped, the new govern-
e ment which evolves may well be

WASHINGTON - (P) - Prime
Minister Winston Churchill said
last night that irresistible forces
are bringing the United States and
Britain closer together, "not for
unworthy purposes but in order
that we may defend the freedom
of the world."
The British leader spoke at a
colorful ceremony in which he was
inducted as a member of the So-
ciety of the Cincinnati.
The address was made only a
few hours after Churchill re-
turned here from a visit to Can-
ada which broke his Washington
visit into two segments.
About the time he was speaking
another business session with Pres-
ident Truman was added to his
schedule. The White House an-
nounced that the two chiefs of
state will meet with their advisers
at the White House at 3 p.m. (Ann
Arbor time) tomorrow.
Churchill leaves Saturday for
New York, on the way home. To-
day he will deliver an address to
a joint session of Congress. It will
be carried on all major TV and
radio networks at 12:30 p.m.

Chinese Red prisoners to Chiang

The UN denied any such intent
but raised another issue.

headquarters in Tokyo announced
it intended to press charges "at
the earliest opportunity" that the
Reds "have violated and are con-

of the Geneva convention dealing

go government financing "as quick-

In submitting his annual eco-
nomic message to Congress - an
general far milder than his mes-
sage a year ago - Truman de-
"It is even more true of 1952
than of 1951 that we cannot have
business as usual, consumer enjoy-
ments as usual, or government
programs and services as usual.
"If we succeed in attaining a
durable peace, our expanding
economy can double our standard
of living within a generation.
"But for the time being, and
perhaps for a long time, we must
sail a middle course in an uncer-
tain sea. War could come sudden-
Running counter to the advice
of his Congressional lieutenants,
Truman called for early and "vig-
orous action" to raise more taxes
by increasing some tax rates and
by plugging what he considers es-
cape routes in the present tax law.
The President said the Federal
Treasury abes a deficit of eight
billion dollars in the current fiscal
year ending next June 30 and a
"dangerously large deficit" of near-
ly twice that amount by mid-1953.
As expected, Truman's request
for higher taxes-the fourth in
18 months-met a chilly reception
on Capitol Hill. Some lawmakers
said something might be done to
pick up new revenue by closing
"loopholes," but Congress was
clearly in no mood to enact anoth-
er general tax hike.
