Air Force ROTC Cadets Spot
Aircraft from Roof of Union

NO GUN HUNT:
Census Takers Count Reserve Deer

By CAROL PRINS
"If a line were drawn from the
Soviet Union directly over the
North Pole to the major targets
of Oakridge, Tenn., Chicago or De-
troit, the line would pass directly
over Michigan skies."
The importance of the plane
spotting service rendered by 265
members of the cadet corps was
emphasized by Cadet Major Ted
Wuerthner, '55, of the Air Force
ROTC. Each of the cadets, who
watch for alien aircraft, serve two-
hour shifts in the period from mid-
night to 8 a.m. once a month. The
actual spotting is done from the
tower of the Union on which a
small' 'shack" has been erected.
MAROItlF MES

Sides of the "shack" are made of
glass enabling observers to see
planes within a radius of eight
miles and at an altitude of 10,000
feet. Wuerthner explained that
spotting supplements the use of
radar.
Plane spotters are not required
to identify aircraft passing in the
area. As soon as a plane is detect-
ed it is reported to a filter-center
at Grand Rapids. Here a chart
showing the location of every
plane flying within the state iden-
tifies the plane immediately.
Any plane not listed on the
chart is reported as a "bogey" or
unknown, and within three min-
utes of notification an alert is
sounded to send out interceptor
planes from Selfridge Air Force
Base in Mount Clemens.
Heavy Traffic
Large numbers of craft are re-
ported, often as many as 22 an
hour. Weekend traffic is especially
heavy since many airlines schedule
flights for that time.
The Civilian Ground Observer
Corps take over spotting duties
from the Air Force ROTC, from
8 a.m. until midnight. Wuerthner
noted that many women as welll
as men participate in the program.
He said participation is urged as
Michigan's industrial centers such
as Detroit, Lansing and Flint are
susceptible to attack. Because of
their strategic position and large
amount of traffic, the Soo Locksj
are also vulnerable.
In a personal letter from Maj.
Gen. M. K. Deichelmann of the
USAF, national head of all Air
Force ROTC units, Wuerthner and1

Early yesterday morning a group
of 66 ' outdoor-loving people went
deer hunting with pencil and paper.
Rifles were unnecessary and il-
legal for this trip since the area
was the University's Edwin' S
George Wildlife Reserve, and the
students, boy scouts and townspeo-
ple, supervised by Prof. Warren W.
Chase of the School of Natural Re-
sources, were there to take a deer
census.
This annual project is undertaken
to determine the number over 50 of
deer which the natural reserve can-
not feed through the winter. These
surplus animals are killed by the
reserve caretaker.
This year 91 bucks, does and
fawns were counted by the deer
drivers, who formedna long, widely
spaced line on one side of the
fenced-in area driving the deer to-
ward the other. When the deer
broke through the line as they tried
to get behind the drivers, they were
counted.
The deer are kept on the reserve,
tended by the Museum of Zoology,
for biological research.
