'U' To Study
New Cancer
Project Financed
By AEC Grant
Plans were revealed yesterday
for a University project investigat-
ing a possible new treatment for
cancer, to be financed by a $104,-
000 grant from the Atomic Energy
For the first year's work, the
project will be directed by Prof.
Fred. J. Hodges and Prof. Isadore
q Lampe of the Medical School de-
partment of roentgenology. The
project is expected to last about
five years.
ESSENTIALLY, the project will
deal with clinical treatment of
cancer patients, comparing results
of cobalt and X-ray treatment of
cancer with treatment using ra-
dioactive cesium, a rare earth ele-
A waste product of the atomic
energy process, cesium is much
more readily available than co-
balt, which must be especially
The experiments will take place
in a yet-to-be-built underground
laboratory, which will be located
somewhere behind the University
SINCE THE AEC grant does not
provide for housing facilities for
the project, housing will be fi-
nanced by a $150,000 sum given
jointly by the Phoenix Project,
the Medical School, the University
Hospital and the University.
The bulk of the joint grant is
a $75,000 sum, given by the
Alice Crocker Lloyd Memorial
Fund, a part of Phoenix Pro-
ject commemorating the Uni-
versity's former dean of women.
The other three donating agen-
cies will give $25,000 each.

built somewhere in the space im-
mediately behind the side wings
of the University Hospital. Offi-
cials indicated that plans for the
building are as yet "very indefi-
nite." Construction is expected to
begin about April 1.
The one story lab will occupy
6,000 square feet and will be
built from 30 to 36 inches under
the surface of the ground. Rea-
sons for putting it underground
are to protect against radiation
and to provide a support for the
tremendous weight of the equip.-
The two main pieces of equip-
ment will be seven to eight ton
"applicators" - X-ray like ma-
chines which will hold the cobalt
and cesium.
Under terms of its grant the
AEC will supply the two applica-
tors plus a fully equipped physics
laboratory for the building.
Phoenix Project assistant direc-
tor Prof. Henry J. Gomberg said
that the laboratory will .be the
"only one known" doing exactly
this kind of work. Preliminary
work has been done at the govern-
ment's Oak Ridge plant.
SChanges in Quad
Policy Considered
Possible future changes in resi-
dence hall policy on mid-year
room contract terminations were
discussed yesterday by Dean of

Men Walter B. Rea, Assistant to
the Dean of Students Bill Zer-
man, the Residence Halls Confer-
ence Committee and Interfrater-
nity Council president Pete Thorpe,
Although nothing definite was
decided, it was learned that var-
ious proposals for revising the
present rules were presented.

Book of the Dead

-Daily-Larry Wik
JUDGMENT DAY, 1500 B.C.?--Ancient papyrus from the Book of
the Dead shows Egyptian gods and goddesses deciding whether to
admit a dead man to the next world. The man's heart is being
weighed against a statue of the goddess of truth.

The Book of the Dead will soon
be displayed in Ann Arbor.
Placed in a tomb thousands of
years ago, the 30-foot-long manu-
script supposedly enabled an un-
known Egyptian to journey to the
next world. The journey was made
safe by a series of magical spells,
Duplicate ID's
To Be Issued
To. Students
Students who have lost their
identification cards ."must secure
new ones before registering for the
spring semester, the Office of Stu-
dent Affairs announced yesterday.
The plasticized ID cards will be
required for presentation during
registration in order for students
to gain admittance into Water-
man Gym.
Duplicate cards will be made
by the Photographic Service for
a fee of $1.25 which must be paid
at the Cashier's office. The
Photographic Service will take
identification pictures from 1
to 5 p.m. today and tomorrow as
well as Jan. 21 and 22 at the
same time.
After the student has paid his
fee, he should report to the Office
of Student Affairs before proceed-
ing to the :hotographic Service.
Although it may delay registra-
tion, identification pictures will be
taken in the Rifle Range during
the week of registration beginning
at 12:30 p.m. Feb. 2. For the re-
mainder of the week pictures will
be taken from 7:45 to 11:30 a.m.
and 12:30 to 4:30 p.m.- with the
exception of Saturday when they
will be taken from 7:45 to 10:15
Extend Petitioning
Petitioning to fill four vacancies
on the Engineering Honor Coun-
cil has been extended until 5 p.m.
tomorrow it was announced yes-
Petitions should be turned in at
the West Engineering Annex or
filed with a member of the council.

which also secured food and drink
for the life after death.
IN ADDITION to these spells,
the roll of papyrus contains a
group of hymns to the Egyptian
sun god Re, and to Osiris, the god
of resurrection.
Egyptians called the book
"The Spells for Coming Forth by
Day," and customarily put a
copy of the manuscript in tombs
with the dead. Each individual"
chose from a wide variety of
spells those which he thought
would be most likely to secure
his 'place in the next world.
Enoch E. Peterson, Director of
the Museum of Archaeology, said
that although it is impossible to
ascertain the exact date of this
particular Book of the Dead, it
may have been written as early
as 1500 B.C.
The papyrus is illustrated with
scenes which portray the life
of the deceased after he reached
the world of the dead.
Loaned to the museum by O. O.
Fisher of Detroit, this Book of
the Dead has never before been
exhibited to the public. One end
of the roll of papyrus has been
broken off, and archaeologists can-
not determine the manuscript's
original length.
The book will be put on dis-
play from Jan. 27 through Feb.
28 in the Museum of Archeology.
SAC Extends
Hken's Houses'
Closing Hours
Men's residences holding ap-
proved parties may remain open
till 1 p.m. on 1:30 permission
nights, it was decided yesterday
by the Student Affairs Committee.
Previously, parties had to end
at midnight, leaving couples an
hour and a half to fritter away
with little in the way of University-
approved entertainment available.
The move for overhauling the
rule originated with the Student
Legislature, and the Inter-Fra-
ternity Council, Women's Judi-
ciary and League Board of
Representatives approved the
Dean of Women Deborah Bacon
expressed concern over the burden
on the staff of the women's resi-
dences which will be imposed by a
string of six consecutive weekends
early in the new semester with late
permission nights.
Dean Bacon suggested that,
within the framework of the re-
vised code, an arrangement might
be worked out whereby the lounges
of women's residences would be
closed to men at 12:30 alternate
weeks during this period, with the
men's housing units remaining
open to women till 1:25.

Play MSC
Here Today
Wolverines Now
In Second Place
Michigan's second place hockey
team returns to Midwest Hockey
League competition at 8 p.m. to-
day, taking on the Michigan State
Spartans in a Coliseum engage-
The Wolverines, still in good
shape after the rugged weekend
series with Montreal, will take
the ice intent on cutting down
the three point lead presently
held by North Dakota's first place
SINCE THE game tonight is a
one point affair, a victory would
give Vic Heyliger's crew eight
points for the season and move
them into sole possession of sec-
ond place ahead of Denver, with
whom they are presently tied.
Although Michigan State oc-
cupies the cellar position in the
Midwest standings and hasn't
as yet won a league game, they
have proved extremely danger-
ous on occasion.
Twice the Spartans have ex-
tended opponents into overtime
sessions, and three other times
they have been nipped by two
goals or less in regulation time.
The overtime games came against
Colorado College and Denver,
both tough clubs in the Midwest
Collegiate Hockey League.
LAST WEEK, however, State,
apparently not at top form, play-
ed a sluggish game and were easy
victims of the Wolverines in an
encounter on the MSC home ice.
Michigan, playing the first time
with its revamped lineup, caused
by McKennell's suspension, coast-
ed to an easy victory, 6-0.
To add to the woes of defeat,
Dick Lord, Spartan co-captain
and center on the second line,
was injured in a collision with
Michigan defenseman Louis Pao-
lotto and for a while it was
feared he would be lost for an
indefinite time.
However, despite the fact he
missed last weekend's series with
Minnesota, the colorful forward
is expected to be back in action

JOHN MAYES, 21 - year - old
sophomore center, was the Spar-
tans leading scorer last year and
has been the offensive spark so
far this season. Against North
Dakota he scored all four goals

this victory tonight as they set

surprising league-leading outfit.

established them as the team to

Funds Asked
The state-supported colleges
and universities need $42,000,-
000 now to meet classroom re-
quirements and will need an ad-
ditional $43,000,000 in the next
seven years, according to
State Superintendent of Pub-
lic Instruction, Lee M. Thurs-
Thurston issued this predic-
tion yesterday and warned that
more than half a billion dol-
lars must be spent in Michigan
before 1960 for school and col-
lege classroom space.

committees yesterday as the Sen-

STANDING grim-faced before
his colleagues, Morse then an-
nounced he would not press a twin
appeal for his seat on another key
committee, labor.
"It would be a waste of the
Senate's time," he said. "The
vote would be identical."
The vote capped two hours of
lively debate in which the Oregon
senator, who quit the Republican
party to support Adlai Stevenson
last fall, fought to hold onto his
old committee.assignments against
the opposition of the Senate GOP

MEANWHILE, the quickening pace
of Congress was marked in the
House by lively debate on Presi-
dent Truman's request for an ov-
erhaul of the McCarran-Walter
Immigration Act, which only went
into effect Dec. 24.
Chairman Taber (R-N.Y.) of
the House Appropriations Com-
mittee also raised the signals for
a fight on the foreign aid issue
by stating that Congress should
refuse to provide any new funds
for the aid program.'
Truman asked for $7,600,000000
in his budget message last week
for foreign economic and military
aid. Taber said the program has
carryover funds of more than 10
billion, "which is more than

gan when Truman submitted the
report of a presidential commis-
sion calling for revision of the
law from stem to stern, with
abolishment of the quota system
of immigration and admission of
100,000 additional aliens each
Rep. Walter (D-Pa.), co-author
of the law, told the House not to
be stampeded by demands for
changes and charged that the com-
mission was set up "for the pur-
pose of discrediting the law."
Walter and Sen. McCarran (D-
Nev.) have defended the new acti
as protecting the American way
of life. Opponents have attacked
it as discriminating against some
national and racial groups. Presi-
dent-elect Eisenhower has agreed
that some changes should be made.

elect Eisenhower will send two oft
his top officials to Europe soon
after he takes office to study po-
litical trends there in relation to
United States military and eco-
nomic aid.
They are John Foster DullesI
who will be Secretary of State, and
Harold E. Stassen, who will di-
rect foreign economic aid as chief
of the Mutual Security Agency.
THEY ARE scheduled to leave
at the end of this month for 10
days of conferences, James C.
Hagerty, Eisenhower's press sec-
retary, told newsmen yesterday.
The decision for Dulles and
Stassen to make a personal sur-
vey of the European scene was
reached at conferences Eisen-
hower was holding yesterday
with his Cabinet designees and
other high officials of the forth-
coming administration.
It came at a time when Ameri-
can officials are showing concern
at a possible slowdown in building
Western European defenses.
Hagerty said Dulles and Stas-
sen would make the trip at Eisen-
hower's request to "gather infor-
mation on political trends there
in relation to United States par-
ticipation in the North Atlantic
Treaty Organization and in eco-
nomic assistance" abroad.

Press, Radio
Demand Death
For 'Murderers'
By The Associated Press
Soviet newspapers and radio
yesterday demanded a swift trial
and execution for nine doctors
charged with killing two Russian
leaders and trying to,kill others.
The Kremlin's crackdown on the
medics appeared to extend omi-
nously a purge with anti-Jewish
overtones that has flamed across
Soviet satellites.
* * *
MOSCOW BLARED out a story
of Western-backed intrigue within
Russia that topped most of the
anti-Semitic blasts fired in recent
months from Romania, Bulgaria,
Hungary, Czechoslovakia and East
The government said most of
the nine in the "terrorist group"
were tied up with a Jewish or-
ganization, and all were linked
with U.S. and British spying.
An official announcement -
broadcast and discussed all over
the Soviet Union yesterday-said
the doctors had confessed ending
the lives of Andrei A. Zhdanov and
Alexander S. Scherbakov through
faulty treatment of heart ailments.
Zdhanov, a leading Politburo
member, died four years ago at
52. Sherbakov died seven years ago
at 44. He was head of the Army's
political administration.

Pravda denounced state security
organs for failing to uncover the
group sooner. It said the investi-
gation still is going on.
The official accusation said
the nine doctors tried to weaken
Soviet defenses by treating three
marshals, one general of the
Army and an admiral so that
they would eventually die. Oth-
ers not immediately named also
were declared marked for death.
Moscow was struck by the
statement that the plot was car-
ried out on instructions from Brit-
ish and American intelligence
services and Zionist organizations.
There were angry demands for

U. S. commander in the Far East,

Clark's headquarters said he had
"issued instructions o appropriate
commanders to take all measures
necessary to prevent further vio-
lations of Japan's security or acts
which endanger U. S. forces."
JAPAN'S warning, made with
full U. S. agreement, reflected a
