p,
No decision has been reached
concerning the proposed; jet in-
terceptor operations to be based
at Willow Run, University Vice-
President Wilbur K. Pierpont said
yesterday.
The University is supporting
the position of the airlines that
it is undesirable to mix military
and commercial operations when
unnecessary, Pierpont continued.
Detroit Wayne Major Airport
already has military installations
and could handle jets.
Vice-President Pierpont recent-
ly made a trip to Washington to
confer with legislative, Defense

officials in answer, to demands
that Wilow Run be turned com-
pletely military and that commer-
cial airlines be moved to. Detroit

A letter believed composed by
Manager of the Wayne airport,
Leroy C. Smith, and signed by
Detrpit Mayor Albert Cobo was
recently spt to Secretary o De-
fens'WM#sZ Wilon.
The letter urged the transfer
of commercial operations.
In 1947 the government sold
Willow Run to the University for
the sum of one dollar ap military
asrplus.
The airlines pay rent to the

If Willow Run is completely

League Bodies
Explained and
Differentiated
(EDITOR'S NOTE: This is the see-
on dn a series dealing with wom-
en's student governnent.)
By PHYLLIS LIPSKY
Few people on campus know the
distinction between the Women's
League and the Michigan League.
The former is an organization
of undergraduate women which
administers the undergraduate
fund and carries on student acti-
vities. The latter includes stu-
dents and alumni in its member-
ship and is governed by the League
Board of Governors.
Administration, faculty, stu-
dents and alumnae are represent-
ed on the Board of Governors, a
group which has ultimate respon-
sibility for all League activities
and control of League properties.
Student Officials Form Link
(Chief connecting link between
the Board and the all-student or-
gans of the League are the four
student officials.
The League president, who acts
as Vice-Chairman of the Board
also chairs meetings of the League
Council and the Women's Senate.
The latter groups are composed
entirely of students.
First vice-president, secretary
and treasurer also sit on the Board
of Governors.
At monthly meetings, chaired
by a member chosen from the
group, the Board hears financial,
student, and business manager's
reports.

Chdren To Get
Bettered Version
Discoverer Says New Vaccine .Now
Potentially 100 Per Cent Effective
By LEE MARKS
Final obstacle blocking distribution of Salk' vaccine was re-
moved late yesterday when Secretary of Welfare Oveta Culp Hobby
formally licensed the vaccine for general use.
Licensing followed Dr. Francis' historic report by only a few
hours.
Vaccine which the public will start receiving within a few days is
a- new, improved model--far better than the vaccine Dr. Francis said
was between 80 and 90 per cent effective.
The 1955 version of Salf vaccine can theoretically prevent paralyt-
ic polio 100 per cent, its inventor claimed.
Both Dr. Francis and Dr. Salk received long ovations following
their reports yesterday.

tension but by late afternoon the
crowds had thinned, the floor was
littered with crumpled coffee cups
.O.. hand cigarette butts and everyone
vas weary.

State Health Commissioner Al-
bert E. Heustis has ordered enough
vaccine to accommodate 430,000
first, second and third graders.
Washtenaw County has already
set up a vaccination program call-
ing for cooperation between Coun-
ty Medical Society, Health De-
partment, St. Joheph's and Uni-
versity Hospitals, physicians and
volunteer workers from ,the Na-
tional Foundation.
Announcement of the effective-
ness of Salk Vaccine was termed
"one of the greatest events in the
history of medicine" by Dr. Wright
H. Murray, chairman of the Board
of Trustees of the American Med-
ical Association.
Give Children Priority
"Give the children priority," Dr.
Murray urged, cautioning adults
against rushing to doctors' offices
immediately. Reports from phar-
maceutical companies indicated
probably 30 million three-shot sets
of inoculations will be available
before summer.
If Dr. Salk's suggestion to give
only two shots instead of three is
followed there might conceivably
be enough vaccine to' handle as
many as 45 million sets of inocu-
lations.
Dr. Francis' evaluation includ-
ed a study of two programs in-
cluded in the field trials. In one,
half the children particip'ating
were given vaccine while the othe:
half received placebo, a harmless
substitute. In the other, second
graders received vaccine and first
x and third graders were observed
as a control group.
Placebo Area

Salk Urges
Only Two:
iPoio Shots

Because children used as con-
trol (those who received placebo)
in placebo areas were more nearly
identical to those receiving vac-
cine than in the observed areas,
estimates were obtained largely
from placebo areas, Dr. Francis
said.
In placebo areas estimate of vac-
cine effectiveness for laboratory

Dr. Jonas E. Salk urged yester-
day that only two vaccine inocu-
lations, spaced two to four weeks
apart, be given children in 1955.
. In 1954 during mass field trials,
three shots were given each parti-
cipant over a five week period.
The brilliant University of Pitts-
burgh scientist who discovered the
first effective way to prevent polio
said the third inoculation, or
booster shot, should not be given
until at least seven months had
elapsed.
'Grave Consideration'
Dr. Hart E. Van Riper, medical
director of NFIP, said the Na-
tional Foundation would give
"grave consideration" to Dr. Salk's
recommendation.
Dr. Salk claimed maximum ef-
fect of the vaccine would be ob-
tained only by delaying the third
shot.
All children who received polio
inoculations during the 1954 field
trials should be given an addi-
tional booster dose in 1955, Salk
said, because only a primary ef-
fect could be expected from the
three doses given in a five week
period.
Time Lapse Needed
Long-term immunity, the sec-
ondary effect, can only be accom-
plished if there is a time lapse.of
several months between the last
shot and the first two.
Dr. Salk's suggestions were con-
tained in a paper he delivered yes-
terday at the scientific meeting
where success of his vaccine was
announced. He spoke after Dr.
Francis had reported the vaccine
was 80 to 90 per cent effective.
