'U' Develops
Army Tank'
A method of "seeing" the action
of an army tank being simulated
in an electronic computer has been
developed at the University.
Scientists and engineers at the
Engineering Research Institute's
Willow Run Laboratories have de-
vised the method, which makes it
possible to watch the "tank" climb
over a mock obstacle.
As the tank "climbs over" a
one-foot obstacle at a speed of 20
feet per second, the wheels rise
and fall and the hull pitches
realistically. The action can then
be recorded on film for later use.
Although not as precise as other
methods of,, studying tanks, the
new system permits an integrated
picture of the entire motion which
the other methods fail to provide..
The system was developed by
Henry T. Nay, Jr., formerly of the

Iran Fills Middle East Defense Gap

Associated Press Newsfeatures Writer
After years of careful building,
the Western world can point this
week to an intricate series of in-
terlocking defense alliancesrwhich
insulate the free nations from the
Communist bloc in a continuous
chain from the North Atlantic to
the Himalaya Mountains of India.
The latest link was forged when
Iran announced her decision to
join with Turkey, Iraq and Pakis-
tan as a member of the Baghdad
Pact. The move closed a glaring
hole in the, West's defenses and
completed, as the accompanying
map shows, a "northern tier" of
Moslem states sealing off Russia
from the strategic Middle East
and Africa.
The action served to counter-
balance the headway Russia made
among Arab nations by concluding
a deal in which Communist mili-
tary equipment will be supplied
The Baghdad pact is not pri-
marily a military alliance, although
it provides for joint military plan-
For 'Clinic'
Meet Today
More than 450 debaters from
44 high schools throughout the
state are attending a debate clinic
in the Rackham Lecture Hall to-
Sponsored by the speech depart-
ment, the all-day program will be
highlighted by a morning discus-
sion of the topic "Resolved: That
the Federal government should
guarantee higher education to
qualified high school students by
means of annual grants to colleges
and universities."
Questions will be answered by a
panel of subject matter experts
following the discussion. Members
of the panel will be Prof. Claude
Eggertsen of the School of Edu-
cation, James M. Davis of the In-
ternational Center and Arthur E.
Lean of Extension Service.

ning. It is rather a recognition
of the common interests of the
members in a united front, much
after the fashion of the Yugoslav-
Turkish-Greek agreement which
connects Yugoslavia to the North
Atlantic Treaty Organization.
The Baghdad group is connect-
ed with NATO on the west through
Turkey, a NATO member, and to
the Southeast Asia Treaty Organi-
zation on the east through Paki-
stan, a SEATO member.
Britain also participates in the
Baghdad agreement, and there is
a possibility that the United
States also will join, just to seal
the bargain between this alliance
and other segments of the world-
wide defense line.
The formation of the Middle
East group has long been an aim
River Plan
May Relieuve
Arab Tension
WASHINGTON (R) - American
officials . are talking hopefully
again about winning Arab approval
of a river development plan con-
ceived as a means of reversing
Arab-Israeli tensions.
"Prospects are very good," spe-
cial envoy Eric Johnston said re-
cently as he reported to Secretary
of State John Fosters Dulles on
the status of the Jordan River
development plan.
This attitude contrasts strongly
with the gloomy picture painted in
Washington last week. The as-
sessment then was that the 120-
million-dollar irrigation-dam pro-
posal was on the verge of collapse
after the Arab states, led by Leb-
anon and Syria, voted at Cairo to
delay it for further study.
"The Arab states asked for more
time and that seemed like a rea-
sonable request," Johnston said.
"After all, both Lebanan and Syr-
ia have governments which are less
than two weeks old."
Johnston said he expects to hear
from the Arab states "very short-
ly" and has "been assured" by
them that last week's postpone-
ment was "not a death sentence
in disguise."

of Western diplomacy. Up until
this year it had been blocked by
Arab League intransigence. How-
ever, Arab unity was smashed
last February when Iraq signed
a mutual defense pact with the
Turks, despite bitter opposition
from Egypt, and later broadened
it by joining forces with both
Turkey and Pakistan.
Iraq's move was the first time
an Arab League member entered
an agreement with another coun-
try for defense against Commun-
ist aggression. With Iran now
following Iraq's lead, it is possible
that Egypt's hold on the Arab
League is slipping.
The big question in the weeks
immediately ahead will be whe-
ther the West can draw other
Arab nations into the Baghdad
Pact faster than Russia can get
her grip on them with arms agree-
ments like the one with Egypt.
But a major result of success-
ful completion of the "northern
tier" is transformation of an area
of vacuum into one of positive
planning and notice to the entire
region, particularly Egypt, that one
of Russia's nearest neighbors ful-
ly recognizes the dangers of the
.Kremlin's latest interference in
Middle Eastern affairs.
YD's Attend

versity Young Democrats Club will
