TITLE...
MOST kXTRAORDINARY
MOTION PICTUREI

By RICHARD TAUB
Although the story that Brent
Mattes, '58E, focuses his tele-
scope on the Arb during warm
nights isn't true, he did at one
time "help to chaperone" a party
at the sorority house across the
street.
However, this was an unusual
occasion. The soft-spoken sopho-
more is an avid amateur astrono-
mer.
"I always wanted to look at the
stfars, but I realized that the only
way I could was if I built my own
telescope." He started work on
the instrument in his sophomore
year in high school. It is made up
of parts from such things as wash-
ing machines and a tank turret.
Ground His Own
Mattes also ground his own 6"
mirror. This is done by rubbing
the mirror over another piece of
glass which is mounted on a solid
base. "You keep working around
it and surprisingly it comes out
concave." He spent about 60 hours
grinding it to the right shape.
Except for the mirror and
lenses, the instrument looks little
like the conventional telescope. A
long wooden board replaces the
usual tube. "I have a big, long
jet-black tube at home, but it was
too big to lug all the way from
Oregon.
The equipment for the scope
cost between $40 and $50. A com-
parable instrument would sell com-
mercially for about $300.
His major astronomical interest
at the moment is sunspots. There
is an unusually large amount of
large sunspots showing for this
time of year. -
Kept His Silence
Brent hails from The Dalls,
Oregon, a town near Portland. He
came to the University because, "It
has a good engineering school and
I wanted to go someplace in the
East, although I find it's better
not to say that here."
A physics and math major, he
City Seeks
Administrator
Ann Arbor remains today with-
out a prospect for the post of city
administrator, but "the search is
continuing," according to Alder-
man Russell Burns. Burns is
chairman of a special City Coun-
cil committee created to find a
qualified man to head Ann Arbor's
administrative departments.
At an emergency meeting of the
committee Monday, the refusal of
George F. Liddle, City Manager
of Muskegon, to accept the post
here, was discussed.
The 54-year-old Muskegon man-
ager presently receives a salary of
$15,000.
