New Colors
Saturday, Michigan's football
team did away with the Army's
Long Gray Line and now post
office officials are doing away
with a drab olive line.
All postal fixtures will soon as-
sume a patriotic appearance.
Postmaster General Arthur
Summerfield has instructed all
post offices in the country to paint
over the traditional green of their
trucks and mail boxes with bright
red, white, and blue.
Several mail boxes throughout
the city have already received the
initial splash of red and blue.
To Add White
Local authorities promise white
will soon' be added on the boxes.
Then the trucks will be painted
with the "new look."
In Detroit, where several fleets
of mail trucks sport the new
colors, citizens seem pretty happy
about the whole idea.
Here on the campus, however,
students are divided in their opin-
ions of the big change,
Val Malmstrom, '59, favored the
change because, "It is a good idea
to have our patriotic colors on
such things as post office equip-
Emblem of Government
John Schubeck, '57, summed up
those on the side of the red, white,
and blue: "Since the post office is
a large Federal Government func-
tion, and since red, white, and blue
is so emblematic, the colors are
obviously more appropriate than
the drab olive green.
On the other side of the ques-
tion Alice Meech, 59, said, "I
simply life the old colors better."
Steve Uzelac, '57, felt that it
was not a question of color as
much as of cost.
Uzelac said, "In view of the
large postal debt I would rather
they had left things the way they
Center Discusses
Science, Religion
The second in a series of seven
meetings on "Science and Reli-,
gion," led by Prof. Gerhard E.
Lenski of the sociology depart-
ment, was held yesterday.
Discussions, held at the Luth-
eran Student Center, dealt mainly
with resolving specific scientific
problems, such as the Copernican,
Darwinian and Freudian theories,
in the light of religion.

Greater unity in NATO has been
the goal of Mrs. Chase S. Osborn
since 1949.
Mrs. Osborn, widow of the late
Michigan governor, leaves Ann
Arbor today after being re-elected
chairman of the Michigan Branch
of the Atlantic Union Committee.
The Committee is comprised of
a group of citizens, striving to
achieve military and political un-
ity among the 15 nations of NATO.
"You can't have unity and sec-
urity," said Mrs. Osborn, "if 15
countries have different foreign
and military policies."
Mrs. Osborn pointed to France's
rejection of European federation
as the biggest blow to NATO unity.
Western Government
Another means of getting West-
ern Germany permanently untied
with the West must be devised,
declared Mrs. Osborn. If we can
do this, she said, we can win our
fight with the Kremlin.
Mrs. Osborn said that unifica-
tion of Germany with the West
would increase the strength of
NATO, 2nd attract such neutral
nations as Austria, East Germany
and even Czechoslavakia if it
wished to rebel.
The Kremlin, asserted Mrs. Os-
born, believes depotism can or-
ganize the world.
"The Kremlin, however, is no
longer expanding but spreading
neutralism," said Mrs. Osborn.
"They have successfully drawn
Austria, Egypt, and India away
from the West through their neut-
ralist policy."
She accused the Kremlin of
using nationalism and anti-colon-
ialism to weaken the West.
The Communists have beenisue-
cessfully stirring up anti-colonial
feeling throughout the world, par-
ticularly in North Morocco, said
Mrs. Osborn.
The Cyprus issue was intended
to split relations, this time between
Turkey, Greece and England, she
"People 'must wake up to the
fact that interdependence not in-
dependence is the goal that must
be achieved," Mrs. Osborn stated.

MRS. OSBORN-Re-elected chairman of the Atlantic Union

Sometime in 1956 the three wind
tunnels which will be housed in
the new Aeronautical Engineering
Laboratory on the east edge of the
University's North-Campus will be
completed. This will make the
University one of the few institu-
tions in the country to have facili-
ties for studying flight at velocities
five to ten times the speed of
In addition, no other research'
group in Aeronautical Engineering
can boast of the extensive/ slower-
than-sound facilities possessed by
the University.
Exterior Almost Finished
According to Prof. Wilbur C.
Nelson, chairman of the Depart-
ment of Aeronautical Engineering,
the exterior of the building hous-
ing the Aerodynamics and Aircraft'
Propulsion Laboratories, the Air
Pumping Station, and the power
shed is almost finished.
It will be sometime next year,
however, before the wind tunnels
which can effect wind speeds from
below the speed of sound up to
3700 mph will be completed and
ready for operation.
The laboratory was allotted
Engineering Research Institute
Funds. The Atomic Energy Com-
mittee supplied pumping equip-j
ment totalling $700,000. The re-
mainder of the equipment will be
supplied by the present Aeronau-

tical Engineering labs at Willow and their pumps and equipment.
Run. I Railroad Cars Comprise Vacuum

To House 3 Units
The $2,000,000 structure which is
actually three wind tunnels is
composed of subsonic, supersonic,
and hypersonic units.
The subsonic tunnel, which uti-
lizes wind velocities below and up
to the speed of sound will be the
center of research on the effects
of wind on aircraft wings, and
airfoil drag production.
Despite the fact that modern
jets with increasing frequency fly
at speeds greater than that of
sound, they willecontinue to land
and take off at subsonic speeds-
making this phase of aeronautical
research one of importance.
Wing components and aircraft
models will be mounted in the test
chamber into which air is driven.
Velocities To 3000 mph
The supersonic tunnel which
studies velocities from the speed
of sound to approximately 3000
mph was begun in 1946 at the
University Laboratories at Willow
Run Airport.
Its design and construction was
part of the University's contribu-
tion to research on guided missiles,
and in 1951 the Air Force donated
the tunnel to the University.
This month it is being moved to
North Campus, a transfer which
requires the moving of 9 seven-
ton railroad tank cars and their
nine-ton storage rack, an air-stor-
age balloon, the two test sections

The railroad tank cars compose
a vacuum "tank" at one end of
the tunnel which operates by
drawing air from the other end of
the test chamber.
High vacuums are required to
achieve the desired air velocities
and the nine tank cars haye a
capacity of 13.000 cubic feet.
The hypersonic tunnel which
tests air velocities above 3000 mph
will be constructed by joining the
vacuum tanks of the supersonic
tunnel with a new pressure sys-
Pressures of 3000 pounds per
square inch will be created by
the AEC pumps and the resulting
air streams will make possible re-
search on rocket and space satel-
lite flight.

A FLIGHT OF IMAGINATION prompted the Droodle
above-it's titled: Flying saucer with Lucky-smoking
crew. But it's a down-to-earth fact that Luckies taste
better than any other cigarettes-and for down-to-
earth reasons. First of all, Lucky "Strike means fine
tobacco. Then, that light, mild tobacco is toasted to
taste even better . . . cleaner, fresher, smoother. So,
'Glurg shrdlu!" (In saucer language, that means,
'For taste that's out of this world, light up a Lucky!")
