NEW PROGRAM LAUNCHED:
Hayes Leads Human Behavior Studies
* * * *.

By BECKY CONRAD j
Heading so young an organiza..
tion that "I dbn't even have a
secretary yet," Samuel P. Hayes
recently took on the job as Direc-
tor of the Foundation. for Re-
search on Human *Behavior.
Formerly chief of the Foreign
Operations Administration's Far
East Program, Hayes will head the
non-profit corporation which
pools contributions from business
and other organizations.
* * *
NEWLY ESTABLISHED in Ann
Arbor, the Foundation aims to in-
creasenthe scientific knowledge of
human behavior and to promote
the use of this knowledge by in-
dustrial, government and social
welfare agencies.
The K e lo g g Foindation
launched the group's activities
with funds enabling it to un-
.dertake a three-year nation-
wide program of seminars for
organization officials and re-
search personnel, publication re-
ports, experiments in applying
new research operations and in
other ways to translate behav-
ioral research into action.
Named special assistant to the
Assistant Secretary of State in
January, 1948, Hayes was respon-
sible in the next two years for
coordinating the planning of the'
Point Four program.
Early in"1950, he went to Squth-
east Asia as Deputy Chief of the
United States Economic Survey
Mission initiating American eco-
nomic aid for activities in that
area.
* * *
LATER APPOINTED Chief of
the Economic Cooperation Admin-
istration's Mission to Indonesia,
Hayes explained, "These jobs were
along the same line as my present
one. In the ECA administrative
position, I helped promote utiliza-
ting new techniques of agricul-

Opera Named
"U n' Atom" has been se-
lected as the name for the 1953
Union Opera, general chairman
Mike Scherer, '54, said yester-
day.
The all-male musical comedy
will be presented locally from
Dee. 9 to 11, and an extensive
road trip during the Christmas
vacation has been planned for
the show.
It will deal with atomic en-
ergy, home brew, bureaucracy
and the simple hill folk of Ten-
nessee.
Sterling Talks
To Journalists
"The newspaper must hold a
mirror before society so that so-
ciety can see what it looks like,"
Donald J. Sterlin, retired manag-
ing editor of the "Oregon Jour-
nal" said at a journalism lecture
yesterday.
Sterling, who enrolled in' the
University 49 years ago, said
"Freedom is a two-way street, and
we must allow freedom even for
thoughts we hate." In the Soviet
Union, he commented, they are
free to publish what the govern-
ment permits.

Chest Passes
Half-way Mark
Ann Arbor's Community Chest,
drive passed the half-way mark
in solicitations yesterday, main-
taining the pace necessary to reach
the campaign goal of $168,000 by
Friday, the last day of the drive.
Including only about half of the
contributions made in a house-
ta-house solicitation last Thurs-
day evening, the total collections
stood yesterday at $85,385.
Returns so far indicate increas-
es over last year in one-third of
the districts reporting.

Through case studies and
seminars, the group will "pro-
vide the channel through which
research results are communi-
cated to people who can use
thein," he noted. }
First seminar will be a two-day
session in December or January
when businessmen and research
scientists discuss "Using Econo-
mic Expectations and Purchase

Conditions."

THE FOUNDATION'S first Di-
rector is also widely known as a

rector in the field of social sci-
ence and its utilization in business

itation problems in Washington,
North Africa and liberated Eur-

When is a knot not a knot?
The study of knot theory with-
in the mathematical field of to-
pology is devoted entirely to un-
tangling knotty problems like this.
AT A RECENT meeting of the
Mathematics Club, Prof. E. E.
Moise cif the mathematics depart-
ment, gave a talk entitled, "How
To Tell That a Simple Overhand
Knot Is Really Knotted."
He defined the knot as a
"simple closed polygon in Eu-
clidian three space" that starts
and ends at a common point
and has a certain minimal num-
ber (k) of crossing points.
Prof. Moise showed that the
overhand knot is really knotted by
proving that it cannot be deformed
into a triangle. Such a knot is
useful only to the mathematician
and exists only in theory,
THE OVERHAND knot most
frequently used by mathematicians
in diagrams resembles a pretzel
but is not anchored at a fixed
point. This flexibility is one of
the crucial factors in proving a
knot to be a knot.
If its shape can be deformed
into a 'triangle so that there are
no points of crossing on the dia-
gram, then it is not a knot at
all.
The anchor bend and double
clove hitches that sailors and boy
scouts are famous for are not
therefore kfiots at all in the math-

tions Bldg., Cornwall said.'

Are we stretching things a bit? May-
te - but when you find out how mild
and sweet and refreshing the Medico
pipe can be, you'll go for Medico, too!
It's the replaceable filter in Medico
that makes the big difference. That
little filter traps dangerous nicotine
and tars, disagreeable juices and flakes. I
That's why countless smokers, begin-
ners and old timers alike, who never
enjoyed the pleasures of apipe. now en-
joy the clean mild fragrance of Medico
- the pioneer in filtered smoking.
Try a Medico Pipe. See why Medico's

ematical sense for the ends are
not spliced together.
PROF. MOISE studied knot
theory this summer in a seminar
that he and Prof. Gail S. Young
of the mathematics department
conducted.
They started out knowing
very little about the subject and
first studied available literature
on the knot theory. The seminar
was composed of a dozen faculty
members and students and met
weekly during the summer.
Knot theory has no practical ap-
plications now, Prof. Moise stated.

position. Starting salaries are good and,
of course, increase as you advance.
There is every opportunity for bright young
women to advAnce rapidly to top positions.
