'U' Proffers Lab
Data to Industry
New Industrial Program Enables
Exchange of Research Information
A free flow of valuable research data between the University's
College of Engineering and outside industry has been opened by the
..introduction of the Industrial Program.
Approved by the Board of Regents last June, the program is
designed to bring the engineering college and industry together
in their mutual interest in technical research through a method of
subscription.
u Already one company, the American Motors Co., has paid the
subscription fee of $5,000 a year. It would ordinarily cost an in-
dustrial concern approximately four times as much to employ one
technical man per year in a research laboratory.
Ohlgren Heads Program
Prof. Harold Ohlgren of the chemical engineering department,
assistant director of the Engineering Research Institute, is in charge
of the program. He indicated that about six more concerns are
seriously considering subscribing.
Under the program subscribing industries, who enroll for a three-
year period, will receive up-to-date information on the engineering
college's latest engineering and scientific advances as well as abstracts
covering the fruits of research over a long period.

Agreement

Trieste City
New Treaty Ends
9-Year Dispute'
TRIESTE, Free Territory UAP) -
The City of Trieste will go back to
Italy today under an agreement
Italy and Yugoslavia will sign in
London.
The agreement, announced offi-
cially yesterday, will end a nine-
year dispute that brought Yugo-
slavs and Italians close to war1
several times.
Welcome Predicted
Trieste, a key port at the head of
the Adriatic, will give Italian troops
a flagwaving welcome. When they
take over they will be greeted by
red, white and green Italian flags
flying from windows and by a huge
banner sewn by 60 women.
Under the compromise agree-
ment, Zone A of the free territory,
including the city, will go to Italy,
while Yugoslavia will get Zone B.
Marshal Tito's troops have occu-
pied Zone B while American and
British troops kept watch over Zone
A during the postwar dispute over
the territory.
As sdon as the London agree-
ment is signed Premier Mario
Scelba will report it to the Italian
Parliament and demand a vote of
confidence to back his action.
U.S., Britain Urge Truce
Washington and London have
been prodding Rome and Belgrade
for a long'time to end a situation
which could cause rejoicing behind
the Iron Curtain.
U.S. Ambassador Clare Boothe
Luce said in Naples Monday the
United States felt a solution of the
problem would "create a condition
in which the whole of the Mediter-
ranean area could be strength-
ened."
The agreement will free the
American Trieste garrison force of
about 4,000 .for duty elsewhere. The
British will pull out about 3,000
troops.

Grade High
By DAVE BAAD
University undergraudate stu-
dents equalled an all-time high
scholastic mark during 1953-54,
compiling an overall grade-point
average of 2.58.
This ties the record set in 1951-
52.
Undergraduate men provided
the biggest boost by elevating
their average .03 of a point to
2.54 while the women dropped
slightly from 2.66 to 2.65.
Men's Residence Average
Unchanged
All general men's groups at the
University showed either improve-
ment or no change over 1952-53.
Only the men's reidence halls
didn't raise their average, which
remained 2.49. ,
Based on four points for an "A,'
three points for a 'B,' two points
for a 'C, and one point for a 'D,'
the averages include marks for
both the Ball and spring semesters
of the last school year.
Freshmen bettered their aver-
age by .02 of a point to 2.40 with
men earning a 2.41 and women
2.39.
Fraternity Increase Largest
Campus fraternities made one
of the highest increases, jumping
from a 2.46 in 1952-53 to 2.50 last
year. Every fraternity except one
boosted its average during the sec-
ond semester over its first semes-
ter mark.
Zeta Beta Tau at 2.79 was in
first place with Alpha Epsilon Pi
and Pi Lambda Phi tied for sec-
ond. Next in order were Delta Up-
silon, Phi Sigma Delta and Sigma
Alpha Mu tied for fourth. Sigma
Phi, Phi Gamma Delta, Tau Delta
Phi and Triangle rounded out the
top ten.

not had time to explore fully. j
Ohlgren pointed out that the
program is aimed at a cross-sec-
tion of industries, rather than at
any particular one. A main fea-
ture is keeping a balance among
varied fields, such as automobile
manufacturing, aeronautics, and
electronics.
The greater interest in the pro-
gram has come from industry,
Ohlgren said.
University Will Benefit
Dean George G. Brown of the
engineering college observed that
the University, too, will benefit
greatly from an enrichment of its
educational program. It is expect-
ed that industrial representatives,
after becoming better acquainted
with University research resources,
will consult more with faculty
specialists and invite them to con-
duct additional research in their
particular fields.
The program is the first made
available to industry on such a
broad basis by a university. "We
have tried to make the subscrip-
tion fee small enough so that a
large number of organizations can
participate in the program," Dean
Brown said. Subscription orders
can be considered as legitimate
business expenses.
Originally called the Industrial
Participation Program, the plan
was included in a 21-page report
by the University Development
Council on a suggested plan for
launching a corporation program.
The report appeared last Febru-
ary.

A similar demonstration was
staged at McKinley High in Wash-
ington by about 150 boys and girls
but they were persuaded to trans-
fer their protest meeting to a
classroom. The meeting broke up
in confusion.
Students Criticize
Several studentscriticized ad-
mittance of Negroes to McKinley
with one girl declaring she was
"afraid to walk down the hall.
They walk right up behind me
and say things I wouldn't repeat."
A majoriey of the students, how-
ever, appeared to favor a sugges-
tion by Anthony Green, one of the
school's football players, that a
committee be named to handle the
situation.
D.C. Possible Model
The District of Columbia plan
for ending racial segregation in
schools had brought expressions
of hope from President Eisenhow-
er and others that it would be-
come a model for other sections
to follow in carrying out the U. S.
Supreme Court's ruling outlawing
segregation.
