Sawyer Commends 'U',
Advises ROTC Graduates

New Regents Visit North Campus

"Do your duty faithfully, wear
your uniform proudly, and carry
on in the best tradition of the
men (who have gone) before and
those who will come after you."
Capt. Ralph A. Sawyer, USNR,
so advised Air Force, Army and
Naval Reserve Officers Training
Corps graduates at yesterday's
combined commission ceremony in
Rackham Amphitheatre.
Capt. Sawyer said the '56 grad-
uates "will help to create the mili-
tary establishment of tomorrow."
No year has passed without the
development of new type weapons,

Medical Unit
At a special ceremony held yes-!
terday, the Children's Psychiatric
Unit of the University's Medical
Center was formally dedicated.
Among those present for the
dedication of the Unit which pro-
vides care and counselling for emo-
tionally disturbed pre-adolescents
were University President Harlan
H. Hatcher, Governor G. Mennen
Williams and Dr. A. C. Fursten-
berg, dean of the medical school.
Located on the north side of the
Medical center, the Unit is con-
structed of light brick and is con-
temporary in design. Brightly
painted steel posts line the long
portico which marks the entrance
to the virtually destruction-proof
The four-story, two-million dol-
lar structure contains 75 beds for
inpatients, a consultation room
for outpatients and areas for re-
search in medical disorder.
Because the care of disturbed
youngsters presents special prob-
lems, the unit will provide a test-
ing ground for the architectural
concept of functionalism.
Each unit contains its own din-
ette and kitchen facilities and
each corridor has its own play
area. Because some patients are'
hospitalized as long as six months,
special reading rooms and class-
robms have also been provided.
Therapy areas include work-
shops for woodcraft sewing and
handicraft as well as a swimming
pool, a fully equipped gymnasium
and movie auditorium.

he said. "The function of the
armed forces changes according to
this development."
Praised Personnel
"Our services have always been
fortunate in the quality of their
officers and personnel." Capt.
Sawyer called on the'graduates to
keep military standards high.
Capt. Sawyer cited the Univer-
sity's part in research and devel-
opment of new weapons. "Last
year . . . the University did re-
search for almost every one of the
different military agencies." He
commended the University for its
"vital . . . active part" in aiding
the armed services.
"No military organization can
stand still," he said. Changes in
weapons, tactics and techniques
lead to new procedures.
He called on the graduates to
take their places in military ser-
vices of the future, and empha-
sized the individual graduate's im-
