Proposed DetenionHome Plans Given

Architect's plans for the pro-
posed Washtenaw County juvenile
detention home werem adepublic
today by Probate and Juvenile
Court Judge Jay H. Payne.
Featuring masonry construction
of cinder block and brick facing,
the home will become a reality if
proposal number one is passed by
voters during Tuesday's election.
Fourteen children can be tem-
porarily cared for in the cottage-
styled home, while sleeping ac-
commodations can be provided for
up to 22 children. A supervisory
couple will also be 'accommodated
in the proposed structure.
In action already taken by the

County Board of Supervisors, if
the proposal is passed the home
will be constructed on county-
owned property on Platt Road, lo-
cated south of Washtenaw Road.
Judge Payne, in explaining the
proposal, said "it is a question of
transferring $110,000. from the
county general fund to a special
juvenile home building fund. No
additional taxation will be re-
quired, as the proposal is simply
a request for authorization to
transfer available funds for this
special purpose."
Continuing, the judge said that
the juvenile home is badly needed,
as "without a satisfactory deten-j

"It's our own baby to use as we
see fit," commented Prof. Henry
J. Gomberg, Assistant Director of
the Phoenix Project on the nuclear
research reactor which will be
built on the University's north cam-
pus early in 1955.
Begun this year, the separate
building which will house the re-
actor is now half completed. Funds
for this building and "for the reac-
tor itself have been obtained
through a "no strings attached"
grant from the Ford Motor Com-
pany Fund amounting to $1,000,000.
AEC to Furnish Uranium
All necessary supplies will be
purchased by the Phoenix Project
office with the exception of urani-
um which will be furnished by the
Atomic Energy Commission. "We
have received a letter from the
AEC assuring us of the uranium,"
Prof. Gomberg stated.
"At the present time," he con-
tinued, "we are negotiating with
the AEC concerning safety precau-
tions. All possible steps will be
taken to insure maximum safety."
Outside of those operated by the
AEC, the University's reactor will
ERI Research
Heads Picked
Newbern Smith, Engineering Re-
search Institute engineer, and
Clair M. 'Beighley, formerly of
the Bell Aircraft Corporation,
have been appointed to head im-
portant research programs in ERI.
Smith has been named super-
visor of Project Michigan, the in-
stitute's University-wide research
program sponsored by the mili-
tary, and Beighley has been ap-
pointed associate research engi-
neer in charge of ERI's Rocket
Propulsion Laboratory.

be the largest in the United States.
It is vitally important to atomic re-
search as reactors are the basic
devices used in obtaining nuclear
energy, Prof. Gomberg said.
Research Integrated Here
"Completion of the reactor will
enable the Phoenix Project re-
search program to integrate re-
search here on campus rather than
send reactor work to outside cen-
ters such as Oak Ridge.
When finished, the reactor will
demonstrate design and theory and
expand the University's research
programs in such fields as medi-
cine, biology, chemistry, engineer-
ing and physics.
The apparatus will be available
for lease on a contract basis for
governmental and industrial re-
search through the Engineering Re-
search Institute.
Originally, the reactor will not
be used for classified research.
"We may be called upon to do
some classified work," Prof. Gom-
berg stated, "but in peacetime un-
classified research will take prece-
Information concerning reactor
projects will be available to the
general public and visitors who
wish to observe the reactor may do
so at specified times under certain
safety conditions.
Official Speaks
Handling accounts, finances and
legalistics are the foundations of
the job of a corporation's secre-
tary and treasurer, Joseph Det-
weiler, secretary-treasurer of Ar-
gus Cameras Inc., said yesterday.
In an Alpha Kappa Psi spon-
sored lecture, he advised his au-
dience to enter the area of public
accounting as a first start.
The great flexibility of the sec-
retary-treasurer's job, Detweiler
said, makes for great advantages
as the position is so similar in
many companies.

Couzens Halt Addition
IOnly other housing project among
the 10University buildings present-
ly under construction is the addi-
tion to Couzens Hall.
Begun this August and scheduled
for completion by December, 1955,
the Couzens Hall addition will pro-
vide rooms for 280 more women
students, approximately twice as
many as there are now in the
nurses' residence. The addition,
however, will be a general wom-
en's residence, and not restricted
to nursing students.
Along with the addition, which is
part of a general housing expan-
sion to meet increased enrollment,
.will be some remodeling of the
present Couzens Hall.
The $2,200,000 needed to complete
the addition is being provided by
a sale of revenue bonds.
Hospital Rehabilitation
Across the street and slightly
east from Couzens Hall, the reha-
bilitation of the University Hospi-
tal is proceeding on schedule. Not
included on the list of projects un-

ing done on State appropriations of
$300,000 in 1953 and again in 1954.
Improvements underway include

$2,000,000 appropriation from the

With a capacity of 75 patients,
the hospital will provide training
for medical students in psychiatry.

Huxley May
Lecture Here
J. Robert Oppenheimer, direc-
tor of the School of Graduate Stud-
ies and Research at Princeton Uni-
versity, and Aldous Huxley, author
of "Brave New World," were ten-
tatively selected by the Student
Committee on "Religion Today" to
visit the campus for the spring
lecture series.
Formerly sponsored by the Mott
Foundation of Flint and now spon-
sored by the University, the series
brings personalities of intellectual
quality and religious understanding
to the campus annually.
Although the Committee repre-
senting campus organizations did
not list the selections according
to preference, the group concen-
sus seemed to favor Oppenheimer
as first choice. The committee will
reconvene to complete selection of
alternate speakers at 4 p.m. to-
morrow in the Deans' Conference
Room of the Administration Bldg.

Admission is free for the film,
first in a series on modern art
sponsored by the Ann Arbor Art
