WASHINGTON-President Eisenhower and his Cabinet, terming
the controversial St. Lawrence seaway project "highly desirable,"
yesterday advocated limited U. S. participation in the big undertaking.
The idea of the seaway is to allow ocean going ships to proceed
from the Atlantic up the St. Lawrence to the Great Lakes.

Louis St. Laurent said was a "statement of intention," said Eisen-

Of Phoenix
Begun exacly five years ago this
month, the University's Memorial-
Phoenix Project is fast reaching
maturity-as a program of investi-
gation, discovery, education and
service in the constructive use of
atomic energy.
The project takes its name from
the Phoenix, the fabulous, sacred
bird of the Egyptians, which des-
troyed itself every five hundred
years and emerged from its own
ashes into a new life. It is the Uni-
versity's memorial to the 520 stu-
dents, alumni and faculty members
who lost their lives in World War
