ATOMIC ENERGY PROJECT:
Work Progresses on New
By JIM DYGERT
As workmen on the new North 1
Campus add a little more each
day to the Phoenix Memorial Lab-.
orty, the first step in the $7,-
500,000 Phoenix project ap-
Started last spring and expected
to be ready by next July, the
unique laboratory will be used for
research in peacetime uses ofr
Being constructed on a budget
of $1,500,000, the building will fea-
ture two specially constructed
areas called "caves" for research
involving the use of highly radio-k
The "caves" are being built un-
derground with solid concrete
walls of extra thickness. Win-
dows will permit work inside the
caves to be controlled from with-
out the walls.
Modeled after the Oak Ridge
atomic laboratory and the Atomic
Eiergy Commission's Argonne Na-
tional Laboratories in Chicago,
the Phoenix Laboratory will have
the only two such "caves" on a
A small library and reading
room on radioactivity and radio-
active materials will also be in-
cluded in the building.
Three Labs Planned
Although the Phoenix Labora-
tory is the only lab among the 10
University buildings now under
construction, three other labora-
tories have found their way onto
blueprints and will be started
Like the Phoenix Laboratory,
all three' will be built on the
North Campus. One, the Reactor
building, will be constructed ad-
joining the Phoenix Laboratory.
Plans for the Reactor Building,
to be financed by a $1,000,000
grant from the Ford Motor Com-
pany Fund, are almost finished,
according to University Vice-Pres-
ident Wilbur K. Pierpont. Con-
struction is expected to begin. in
January and to take approximate-
ly a year. '
The building will house the
largest nuclear research reactor
in the United States besides those
operated by the AEC. Through ex-
pansion of the University's re-
search programs in medicine, bi-
ology, chemistry, engineering and
physics, the Reactor will enable
Calling it "high time," Prof. Al-
lan Seager concurred with Eng-
lish Department faculty members
contacted that Ernest Hemingway
deservedly won the 1954 Nobel
Prize for Literature.
While William Faulkner (who
won the Prize in 1952) is a larger
figure, Prof. Seager said, he is
not a larger public figure, for
Hemingway is the "most influential
American writer of this century--
more people have imitated him."
Though saying that he thought
the prize was deserved, Prof. Nor-
man Nelson said that he regretted
Hemingway's having "to buckle to
the symbolism fashion before he
was allowed to receive the Prize,
for "The Old Man and the Sea"
is far from being the best he can
Prof. Arthur Carr said he wished
that the 55-year-old writer had re.
ceived the award "when his liter-
ature was at his greatest."
He added that the Nobel Com-
mittee always seems to give its
recognition late, but that it does
nonetheless serve a useful func-
tion for writers.
Also calling Hemingway one of
the most important literary figures
of the 20th century, Prof. Joe Davis
added that Hemingway "more than
any other has been a writer of the
international scene, and his fic-
tion has a kind of world scope
and world meaning."
The recognition, Prof. Davis add-
ed, serves to underscore the signi-
ficance of this kind of international-
ism in modern fiction.
The Pulitzer Prize for fiction was
awarded to Hemingway last year
for his "Old Man and the Sea."
His more famous works include,
"A Farewell to Arms," "The Sun
Also Rises," and "For Whom the

work to outside centers such as

Necessary supplies for the Re-
actor will be purchased by the
Phoenix Project office, except for
uranium, which is to be furnished
by the AEC.
A second laboratory on North
Campus blueprints is a new Auto-
motive Engineering Laboratory to
replace the old auto lab near West
The new auto lab, larger than
the old lab, will be started in No-
vember on funds appropriated by
the State Legislature and is ex-
pected to be finished by next De-
It will have 18 test cells, includ-
ing some for jet engine research,
and some for fuel research.
Newbern Smith and Clair M.
Beighley have been appointed
heads of Engineering Research In-
The project, set up last year, is
aimed at developing methods for
gathering c o m b a t intelligence
through radar, television and oth-'
er mechanical means.
Smith, named supervisor of
Project Michigan, received his
doctorate in physics at the Uni-
versity of Pennsylvania in 1935.
Before joining the institute in
February, Smith was chief of the
central radio propagation labora-
tory in the Bureau of Standards.
Beighley will head the Rocket
Propulsion Laboratory, which is
concentrating on studies of rocket
fuels, combustion and ignition.
He earned his doctorate in me-
chanical engineering in 1952 from
