ONE OF THE FIRST STEPS IN TABLET MAKING*...
Contest To Enter Final Round

v_
Final arguments in the annual
University law school Case Club
Contest will be held at 2:30 p.m.
Friday, April 29, in Rm. 100, Hut-
chins. Hall.
Jules Poppinga, '56L, and How-
ard Downs, '56L, will participate
in a labor law case against George
Ewing, '56L and John Appel, '56L.
Results of the-competition will be
announced at a banquet with the

winners receiving $250 and the
losing pair $100.
Judges will be: Harold Burton,
United States Supreme Court;
Florence Allen, Cleveland, justice
in the United States Sixth Circuit
Court of Appeals; Harry Heher,
New Jersey Supreme Court; John
Dethmers, M i c h i g a n Supreme
Court and Lieut. Gov. Philip A.
Hart.

Many students pass the Chem-
istry-Pharmacy Building and do
not realize medicines are being
manufactured inside.
Tablets, medicinal solutions and
ointments are turned out by the
manufacturing laboratory under
the direction of Prof. Albert Mat-
tocks. Some of them are dispensed
by Health Service and others are
used by the University Hospital.
Main Purpose-Research
"The main purpose of this lab-
oratory is research. Graduate stu-
dents are employed, and learn the
procedures and processes used by
pharmaceutical houses," D e a n
Thomas D. Rowe said.
This research may result in the
discovery of new manufacturing
processes. If the results are im-
portant enough they would be
adopted by all companies, he add-
ed.
Tablet making procedure is com-
plicated and involves the use of
numerous machines. For example
the tablet machine, an interesting
devic, is capable of running off up
to 1,000 tablets per minute.
Apparatus Used
Counting the tablets involves
the use of a counting apparatus
similar to a metal tray with holes
punched in it. Tnis device nglias a
maximum of 250 tablets.
Tests are given for proper
strength, hardiness and purity.
One of these tests consists of boun-
cing the tablets in a solution.
"Everything is done to meet
standards and nothing is released
that hasn't been properly tested,"
Dean Rowe added.
University Day
Program Set
More than 1,800 students from
200 Michigan and Ohio high
schools will gather here for the
13th annual University Day Sat-
urday.
University President Harlan H.
Hatcher will greet the guests at
a general assembly opening the
program, and the Men's Glee Club
will entertain.
The all-day program will in-
clude tours of the campus and
discussions with University facul-
ty members on entrance require-
ments, curriculum and job oppor-
tunities.

ERI Report
Lists Funds
For Studies
Research Covers
Maniy Projects
Eight million dollars in research
is outlined in the annual report of
the University s Engineering Re-
search Institute.
Research ranges from explora-
tions of the atom to studies of the
upper atmosphere and from guided
missile design to noise reduction
in battleships. The ERI funnels
spoxnsored 'research projects such
as these to faculty members, main-
ly in the Engineering College and
to its own staff of technicians.
Projects Listed
Directed by Dr. Richard G. Fol-
som, ERI is 34 years old. The re-
port recently distributed about the
Institute tells of 334 government-
al and indstrial research projects
handled by the ERI during 1953-
54. Many of these projects are list-
ed as of vital importance to the
national defense effort.
Of the 334 projects underway
during the yeai, 17 of them group-
ed under the classification of Op-
erations Research, System Analy-
sis and Design and Communica-
tions were valued at $4,428,638,
or more than half the total.
Although wrapped in secrecy,
the three Operations Research pro-
jects totalling two million dollars
are described as being "i answer
to a need felt by the armed forces
for basic research in the means of
handling problems of efficient util-
ization of forces and supplies."
They touch upon such topics as
optimum submergence tactics of
submarines, aerial combat, and
the prediction of future aircraft
positions from radar plots, the re-
port observes.
'U' First School
One of the first schools to offer
instruction in System Analysis and
Design, the University stands in
the forefront of the field according
to the report. The studies relate
to the increasing complex and
large-scale systems used in com-
munications, transportation, busi-
ness, industry, sbience, and war-
fare.
ERI's largest division, the Wi-
low Run Research Center, has spe-
cialized in the design for military
systems. It is reported that "con-
siderable effort has gone into the
design of guided missile systems
for air' defense. Such systems in-
volve target surveillance, prepara-
tion and launching of missiles,
guidance and control, coordina-
tion of multiple attacks, commun-
ication, computation, and evalu-
ation."
Five projects amounting to over
a million dollars were conducted
during the year in this field.
$800,000 Total
Nine projects in the Communi-
cations field totaled $800,000 on
research. Studies included investi-
gations in human response to sti-
muli from electronic equipment,
telemetering as applied to upper-
atmosphere research, and devel-
opment of new types of air-search
radar systems and of infrared de-
vices for communication other
than radio.
The report gathers all projects
under 22 broad engineering con-
cepts, such as soil mechanics,
high-speed computers, combustion,
human engineering, acoustics, ma-
chinability, nuclear energy and
meterology.
In outlining the contributions of
the Institute to the University's
educational program, the report

points out that 450 students work-
ing for degrees were employed part
time on research teams during the
year.
This experience is regarded of
great value in the training of well-
rounded engineers, scientists and
technicians.

will be open to visitors for in-
spection.
About 46,000 miles of road will
be built in the United States in
1955.
