With huge hammers pounding
deafeningly onto solid steel and
hundreds of workmen climbing
scaffolds to precarious heights, the
University begins the fall semester
with well over $3 million worth of
new building projects under con-
struction.
Much of the activity centers on
the new North Campus area, one
mile north of Ann Arbor across the
Huron River. There the Cooley Me-
morial Laboratory, completed last
spring and currently the only struc-
ture being used on the new cam-
pus, is quickly being surrounded by
other projects.

Directly to the west of the Coo-
ley Bldg. is the Phoenix Memorial
Laboratory, a $1,041,000 structure
financed by the Michigan Memo-
rial Phoenix Project and planned
to provide research facilities for
the peaceful uses of atomic energy.
Radioactive Research
Now in early stages, the Phoenix
Laboratory will be completed next
summer. Prof. Henry J. Gomberg
of the physics department, Phoenix
Project assistant director, termed
the laboratory a "research center
for faculty, graduate students and
outside industries, where radioac-
tive materials can be handled in

large quantities under safe condi-
tions."
Equipment in the laboratory,
Prof. Gomberg pointed out, will be
as versatile as possible, with facili-
ties planned for both physical and
biological sciences.
Atomic Caves
Of the Phoenix Laboratory's
many complex and unque features,
Prof. Gomberg considers its two
underground atomic caves the
most symbolic of the project itself.
Shielded by solid steel doors weigh-
ing 18 tons each, the caves will al-
low for use and storage of great
amounts of radioactivity.
Experiments in the caves will
be carried out by remote control,
with a set of manipulators inside
the room to duplicate the motions
of external hands.
Phoenix Project work will be
complete with the addition, in more
than a year, of a nuclear reactor
wing to the laboratory. Studies of
radiation will center around the re-
actor, which will provide a high-
level source of radiation and many
research and teaching devices.
Next to benefit from the 377-
acre North Campus tract will be
the School of Music, now uncom-
fortably limited by its overcrowd-
ed facilities.
Housing for married students
and staff members is also planned
to develop on the new campus,
facing Plymouth Rd.
Library Facilities
December, 1954, is the comple-
tion date set for the $457,147 Cen-
tral Service and Stack Bldg.,
south of the Cooley Bldg. Financed
by State Legislature funds, the
structure represents the first step
in meeting a long-standing need for
additional library facilities. It will
hold books and periodicals not in
every-day use at the main library.
Another library being erected is
the Kreske Memorial Building, ad-
jacent to the north of the new
Kresge Medical Bldg.
To accommodate strong increas-
es in nursing student numbers,
work has begun on an extension
to Couzens Hall, nurses' dormitory,

which will more than double the
building's present capacity of 269.
Costing nearly $2 million, the
building should be complete by
fall of 1955.
Children's Hospital
Also under construction in the
area is a new children's psychi-
atric hospital, next to the isolation
ward. Unique for its provision of
separate facilities for adolescents
and younger children, the hospital
has been financed by Act 230 of the
1953 State Legislature.
