IOM DRAWING BOARD TO REALITY:
Motorists Use Student-Planned Bridges

Department.
Under the program, civil en-

students work on the preliminary
and final designs of the proposed
bridges, and then prepare the fi-
nal plans.

experience has made it possible
for graduates to advance more
rapidly," he adds.
Work of the design group starts
with receipt from the State High-
way Department of field informa-
tion of the proposed bridge site.
Students then prepare - prelimin-
ary plans and estimates for sub-
mission to the department. Work
is then begun on the final design
of the abutments, piers and super-
structure. Following this is the
development of final plans for
use in construction.

Dorm Study
Lights Bad
The existence of substandard
lighting in dormitory study halls
was reported by the scholarship
committee of the Inter House
Council Thursday.
Although illumination for study-
ing should be 30 foot-candles, the
lighting in dorm study halls pro-
vides only five to 15 foot-candles.
The council, presided over by
executive vice - president Ralph
McCormick, '57E, decided that both
Taylor and Gomberg houses should
receive placques for having 100%
turnouts in the SGC election.

Ah=Choo!
Free flu shots will be avail-
able to all University students
at the Health Service Tuesday
through Friday.
Students should be prepared
to present their I-D cards in,
order to tike advantage of the
free inoculation.
Dr. Morley Beckett, director
of the Health Service, says that
no predictions have been made
of a flu epidemic this year, but
that the influenza inoculation
program is wise precaution.

"Seeds of Democracy," a feature

He will emphasize the value
which student government has in
training future citizens of the
state.

p3resentation of University Televi-
sion and is telecast weekly over
several Michigan stations.

-Some Four Lanes Wide
Scattered throughout the state,
the steel and concrete spans range
from 20 to 65 feet in length and
up to four traffic lanes in width.
Most of the bridges are of one
span, but a three-span structure,
110 feet long, is now being de-
signed to carry M-37 traffic
across Duncan Creek north of
Middleville.
About 30 engineering students
have participated in the program
since it began in 1952, including
six who are at work this semester
on plans for three new bridges.
"The program gives the students
a head start in the bridge design-
ing field," points out Professor of
Civil Engineering Leo M. Legat-

Gilbert Stuart Would Be 200 Today;
Adams Comments on 'Historian in Oils'

Come to Church
Sunday _

( l

By ELAINE HATFIELD

Today marks the 200th birthday
f Gilbert Stuart, painter of the
Athenaeum" Washington, the
ortrait Americans view on pos-
age stamps and school walls.
Stuart, a "historian in oils,"
ainted nearly all of America's
evolutionary leaders. But,. it 'is
is "unfinished" Washington that
said to be one of the best known
ictures ever painted in the United
tates.
According to Prof. Adelaide Ad-
ms of the fine arts department,
many of Stuart's other paintings
re as good as the Washington
ortrait. 'Washington' is singular,
owever, because of subJect mat-

but Washington refused to grant
him a third sitting. Prof. Adams
says, "Stuart then went to Martha
Washington. She persuaded her
husband to pose for the painting
by promising that she too would
have her portrait done."
The resulting portraits pleased
Stuart so that he decided to keep

them and refused to give them to
Martha Washington, using the ex-
cuse that they were "not yet fin-
ished." He never "finished" them,
but gave Martha Washington a
copy, and then proceeded to make
70 more copies which he sold one
by one each time he needed money
badly.

Stuart, in his portrait, left the
background{ and costume of Wash-
ington incomplete and concentrat-
ed on portraying only the head,
with almost scienitific objectivity.
He put more detail into Washing-
ton's upper face, however, to draw
attention away from his imperfect
mouth.'
Before posing for the "Athen-
aeum," Washington sat for two
paintings which Stuart felt were
failures since they did not ac-
curately portray Washington's
character.
