made arrangements for their
senior pictures from 9 a.m. to
3 p.m. today.
According to 'Ensian officials,
those who have not already
signed up for their pictures
should do so immediately.
lRead and Use
Major de Eeversky, who had
much to do with the beginnings of
aviation, claims that flying to the
moon will only be a matter of 3
hours thanks to atomic-powered
craft. Rockets are not practical,
he says, betause the pilot cannot
control the speed.
THE ATOMIC plane will start
relatively slowly and travel
through the earth's atmosphere at
a speed of 1 .000 to 2.000 miles pnr
hour, tne author said. When clear
of the atmos here, it will increase
its speed to 130.000 miles per hour,
then slow Down during the sec-
ond half of the journey.
Maj. de Seversky also predicts

Prof. William Liller of the as-

ed several problems which must
be solved before an attempt at the
moon is made.
COLLISION with interplanetaryj
particles (such as meteors) is one
important factor. Also to be con-
sidered he pointed out will be the
lack of air on the moon and theI

electrical engineering department

principles of Maj. de Seversky.
However, Prof. Gomber, who is

Rackham School of Graduate
studies and director of the Michi-

things are economically possible.
"I hope that I never see the dayj
when helicopters are as common
as autos," he added.

cities to suburban airports. A great
deal of time and money is going

The trend in commercial air
travel, he claimed, is to fly higher'
and faster, the effect being a saf-
er flight. Prof. Nelson feels that
within five years the speed and al-

be doubled. However, he said that
