the overall budget request of $25,-

proposal in University history.

President Harlan H. Hatcher
urged that the approaching en-

in passage of the 'U' budget re-
quest. Debate on the operating

In a. prepared comment on the
committee action Niehuss said,
"We know that the members of
the House Ways and Means Com-
mittee have given this appropria-
tion careful consideration and we
are aware of the difficult prob-
lems which they face in this per-
iod of rising costs."
Stressing the inadequacy of the
recommended appropriation, he
concluded, "We are hopeful that
some solution can be found for
the State's financial problems
which will permit the appropria-
tion to be adjusted upward."
The University's request was not
the only one to suffer in the huge
number of appropriation bills re-
ported by the house committee.
Under the $47,784,510 recom-
mendation for higher education,
which contains appropriations for
all state-supported colleges, Mich-

Bird Course Open


A sensational 2000-mile-an-hour
"aerobee rocket" journey by ten
mice has set a new world's alti-
tude record, an Air Force scientist
disclosed this week.
The "space mice" survived the
soaring flight that took them 40
miles above the earth to give the
animal kingdom a sharp advan-
tage over man in the quest to
reach outer space.
ACCORDING TO official fig-
ures, man, with all his balloons
and airplanes, has never succeed-
ed in achieving a height greater
than 13 miles above our planet.
Stanley P. Wyatt, Jr., of the
astronomy department was en-
vious of these first space navi-
gators. "Being at such an alti-
tude might enable astronomers
to obtain the ultra-violet spec-
trum of the sun and stars and
an integrated look at the earth's
weather patterns," he said.
Apparently, however, the trip
was actually made to learn more
about the "borderzone" of space
that exists between 12 and 120
miles above the earth's surface.

Henry also reported t h a t

keys had ridden to a height of
80 miles in V-2 rockets launched
from the Army's proving ground

Some of the mice and all of the
monkeys were used in studies de-
signed to get a better idea of the
problem of "weightlessness" which
would face a navigator in space
Henry said.
As the rockets fell, there was a
period when the animals became
weightless because the downward
acceleration equalled the earth's
gravitational force.
Records of the animal's phy-
sical reactions were obtained eith-
er by radio from the rockets, or
from photographs automatically,
taken during flight.

Dean Edmonson To Be Feted

Producing their first American
play of the year, the Arts Theater
Club will present Clifford Odets'
"Rocket to the Moon" at 8:30 p.m.
Billed as a 'romance', "Rocket
to the Moon" is one of Odets' later
plays and, in his estimation, is one
of his most mature, serious dramas.
S * '*
ODETS' PLAYS were not too
popular in the thirties, but they
are now being produced through-
out the country and in England as
part of an Odets revival'.
Warning the audiences not to
expect a play about rockets and
moons, Strowan. Robertson, a
member of the Club, explained
that the title is taken from one
of the speeches in which "take a
rocket to the moon" is an incite-
ment for Romance and escape
from the drudgery of everyday

Mask Contest'
"No ugly men, no Ugly Man
Contest,." that's the explanation
Bert Braun, '54, gave for the can-
cellation of the Alpha Phi Omega
contest slated for next month.
The.idea behind the stunt was
for male groups to enter a mask
of an ugly man and then for vdt-
ing by contributions on the diag.
The money raised was to have
been spent for polio equipment,
"Woman groups have displayed
more interest in the contest than
the men's so we had no alterna-
tive but to cancel the contest,"
Braun continued. Another attempt
will be made in the fall, Braun

The play is the love story of Ben
Stark, a dentist, played by Dana
Elcar and his beautiful assistant,
Cleo, portrayed by Jo Willoughby.
As they prepare for a "rocket to
the moon," the two learn to love;
and live.
Praising the dramatic worth of.
the play, Robertson said, . "In.
Odets' plays are found ,the seeds
for the present harvest We're hav-
ing in American drama."
Directed by Bob banning, the
play will run until April 6. The
panel discussion on the play will
be held this Wednesday.
