WORKINGMEN working on the University's new Atomic swimming pool. The pool is scheduled for
completion in September of this year.
U Builds Atomic Swimming Pool

Regents Pass Appoinitments
Of Eight Lit School Professors

The most powerful atomic swim-
ming pool on a University campus
will be completed on North Camp-
us by September of this year.
The atomic swimming pool is a
source of high intensity neutrons,
scheduled for use in research and
experiments. It will be used .to
produce radiation sources for
medical treatment and the study
of metabolism,
Other uses cited by Prof. Rus-
sell Mesler, project engineer and
sargeant of the reactor, include
tagging organic compounds, stud-
ies of sterlizing of foods and phar-
maceuticals, processing isotopes
from radiated materials, and stud,-
All Find They
Love a Parade

the less original of his playmates
just cheered.
"It's real sand," an eight-year-
old discovered as he reached up
to the float bearing Neptune, fish-
nets and undersea corals.
Some of the kids were content
to remain in one place-gleefully
touching clowns on their papier-
mache heads and vying for their
precious balloons; shouting "You
dropped a napkin" after disinte-
grating floats or "You can't hit
me" after every wide one that
passed by.
Other of the younger set felt it
just wouldn't have been a parade
if they couldn't move with it, try-
ing to hitch rides on their favorite
floats or dismantling them for
souvenirs. At the very least they
had to all sweep onto the street
aafter each float passed and sweep
back off when another one neared.
Groan and Cheer
When the last float, looking quite
as gay as the first, had passed,
both young and old let out a m'nixed
groan and cheer, which slowly
travelled down the nearly-three
miles of parade route.
"Is that all?" asked a coed.
"All?" replied another sarcastical-
The last word on the parade
was that of a toddler. As his
mother pushed his stroller /away
from the parade's end, he gurgled,
"I like it."

Construction of the one million-
dollar reactor began in.September,
1953. With the exceptions of re-
actors at Penn State and Oakridge,
Tennessee, few other universities
possess such a neuclear pool, said
Prof. Mesler.
The pool is sheltered by a rein-
forced concrete building, 85 by 65
feet and 80 feet high. Radium fuel
elements are immdrsed in 20 feet
of water.
Workmen have aligned the 900-

College Roundup
What's the old saying about imitation being the highest form
of flattery?
The Michigan State News at East Lansing has revamped its
editorial page. The student editorials have all been placed in the
first two columns on the left, just below a new "Michigan State
News" mast-head.
In the center of the top of the page is a political cartoon, and at
the page's bottom is a "Little Man on Campus" cartoon.
"These," the News proudly announces in an editorial, "will be
part of the State News editorial page new look. In short, the Sate
News is seeking ... to give you, the reader, one of the best collegiate
newspapers in the nation."
It is only to be wondered, then, in the light of these desires, why
the paper did not go all the way and change its name to The Michigan

The driving ban started last fall at the University of Colorado
is credited with bringing on an 11 per cent hike in freshman grades.
Last fall, the university issued a ruling forbidding freshmen from
operating automobiles. The Colorado dean of men has now de-
clared that the subsequent grade rise is due to the driving ban.
However, no statement was released as to whether the officials
now plan to extend the ban to all students.

A University of Minnesota student shot his instructor and then
fatally wounded himself after he failed his ROTC course.
"He wanted to be an officer more than anything else in the
world," a fellow student said.
Capt. Francis L. Franklin, the ROTC instructor, was reported in
good condition at the hospital.
After the attempted murder, the student ran across the street
into the Museum of Natural History. He went into a men's room, put
a shot into his head and died instantly.
Fear of an antiquated 1879 anti-boycott slaw discouraged stu-
dents at the University of Illinois from carrying out a proposed gaso-
line-buying boycott.
The Daily Illini, the student paper, explains: "The boycott of
Champaign gas stations was proposed in an effort to get someone
other than students to petition the City Council to rezone the campus
The students were reported to be lacking parking facilities.
However, an Illinois law passed in the last century made punish-
ment for inciting a boycott six months in jail or a $2,000 fine.
Although all of the students tested at Northwestern University
said they believed in the Bill of Rights, only seven and one half per
cent of them could recognize the document when they saw it.
Prof. Raymond W. Mack, a Northwestern sociologist, presented
560 students the first ten amendments to the Constitution as an un-
identified document.
Ninety-two per cent' of students could not give the name of the

By a total vote of three to one, the faculty of the University of
Washington has come out against that university's speaker ban.
The faculty was asked, "Do you favor the university's existing
ban on campus speeches by political candidates?"
Altogether 272 faculty members said they did not favor it, while
94 said they approved of the ban.
An additional 60 faculty members said they were against the ban,
but would favor some sort of restrictions.
Nearly 80 per cent of those answering did not favor the ban as it
now stands.
Typical comments given in answering the question were:
"The ban is unrealistic."
"In a free country there should be free speech."
"How can students know and learn the truth unless they can
discriminate between the truth and the untruth?"
One faculty member pointed out that the "gag-rule" _ was not
enforced when General MacArthur gave his "non-political" speech
attacking former President Truman in 1951.
