Hoover Defends Scheme
For New Vice-President

WASHINGTON (M) - Herbert
Hoover soberly reminded senators
yesterday that four of the seven
most recent presidents h a v e
crumpled "at critical periods"
under the strain of their office.
He said this record is "a call to
action" toward easing the burden
of men who occupy the White
The former president, himself a
reasonably hale 81, appeared be-
fore a Senate Government Opera-
tions subcommittee and defended
his proposal that Congress create
the post of "administrative vice
president" to take some of the
work load.
He went on to say he had in
mind an official of something like
Cabinet-stature, appointed by the
president with Senate approval,
who would among other things su-
pervise many of the 65 agencies
now reporting to the president
and settle "minor conflicts" among
1,900 branches of government.
"To accomplish such purposes,"
Hoover said, "it seems to me we
need an official clothed with dig-
nity and prestige. He might even

approve the concert tours of the
Navy band."
Laughter from senators greeted
this and other references by Hoov-
er to the many chores now--in
theory, at least--the responsibility
of a president.
But there were no smiles when
Hoover, who was president from
1929 to 1933, departed from a pre-
pared text to remark:
"We're going to have to relieve
the presidents some if we're going
to keep them alive."
March of Dimes
The Washtenaw County March
of Dimes has thus far collected
$9,570 of its $57,600 goal.
Mrs. John H. Huss, chairman
of the drive, reports that Ann
Arbor has raised $6703 tt date,
more than 50% of the county
The drive began on January 3
and will extend to January 31.
Mrs. Huss stated that any person
wishing to give could send a con-
tribution to her at 1950 Long
Shore Drive.,

Lunk Likes
'U' Museum
A little known figure on campus
is William A. Lunk, Senior Pre-
parator of University Museums
Few people realize the signifi-
cance of Lunk's interesting and
important position. It is Lunk's
responsibility to prepare many of
the recent exhibits which are
found in the Museums Building.
The main planning and deci-
sion on which exhibits are to be
installed is done by the Prefect of
Likes Planning ... -
Although the major part of
Lunk's job is installing displays,
he also does some planning, as
there are always decisions to be
made by the person who is setting
up displays.
Lunk recently received his doc-
torate in zoology at the Univer-,
sity. His particular interest is in
the field of ornithology, bird study.
At present, Lunk is doing re-
search on rough-winged swallows.
Lunk has been employed in the
Museums Building since 1948,
shortly after he came to the Uni-
versity. At that time he worked
there part time while attending
... and Installation Problemsj
The job of Senior Preparator is
found particularly interesting by
Lunk because installation of every
exhibit renders an individual
problem. The job also lets him do
quite a bit of art work, one of
Lunk's extra talents.
Always wanting to take up mu-
seum work, he originally consid-
ered working in a research position
as a curator, or similar position.
His present post gives him consid-
erable opportunity to carry on
spare ,time research.

Hatcher has been named to the

4:45 p.m., at the Michigan Union, Room
3-G. This will be the only meeting
until Feb. 15, 1956.

Although acclaimed everywhere as the world's
most versatile aircraft, helicopters have had only
a few short years to prove it. A product of your
generation, they are... in fact...younger than
you are.
Like you, they face a future that is at once
challenging and promising, but the exciting de-
tails of that future remain to be discovered and
worked out.
If you expect to be a graduate engineer shortly,
all this can be most important to you. Sikorsky
Aircraft, the company that pioneered helicopters,

is moving into high gear... going all out to keep
pace with ever-increasing military and commer-
cial requirements. Quite naturally, the world
looks to Sikorsky to design and build the heli-
copters of tomorrow. And for the creative en-,
gineering, for the imagination, for the technical
abilities that the future will demand ... Sikorsky
Aircraft looks to you.
We would welcome the opportunity to give you
a more complete picture of our company ... and
to see if there is a place in that picture for you.
The next step is yours. Take that step and write
to Mr. Richard Auten, Personnel Department.

U. S. Jets Dominate

International Air Transport,

Many engineering graduates would like to be con.
cerned with air power of the next generation. One
way to fulfill that ambition is to pursue a career
alongside engineers who have consisteitly produced
the world's best aircraft engines
M ost major U. S. airlines, recognizing the future of jet
flight in commercial transportation, have placed their orders
for jet-powered transports. Of added significance, however,
is that American-made equipment will be flown also by
foreign airlines in the age of jet travel.
flying Douglas DC-$ Clippers- r Boeing 707 Strato-
liners, these domestic and foreign airlines, circling the globe,
will shrink it 40 per cent. For power, the entire fleet will
rely on Pratt & Whitney Aircraft jet engines. Such achieve,
ment is evidence of unchallenged leadership.
