The University's nuclear reac-
or, now being constructed on the
north Campus, will have a 40,000
gallon "swimming pool" in which
the uranium source will be housed.
The walls of the pool will rise
to a height of 26 feet from the
already completed U-shaped base.
The area in which the reactor
core will be located in the lower
16 feet of the pool will be six and
a half feet thick. The walls at the
top will be three and a half feet
thick.
It is estimated that more than
800 tons of special high-density
concrete will be used to make the
reactor pool walls. The mixture
will be more than 60 per cent
denser than ordinary concrete.
The University is building the
reactor as an addition to its al-
ready completed atomic research
building, the $1,500,000 Phoenix
Memorial Laboratory.
When completed, it will be the
most powerful private reactor in
the nation. It will have a maxi-
mum operating power of 1,000,000
watts.
The reactor building, a window-
less, four-story cube, is scheduled
U.S, Official
Revisits City's
'Blighted Area'
A field representative of the ur-
ban renewal division of the Hous-
ing and Home Agency has devisit-
ed the city to look over Ann
Arbor's so-called blighted area,
City Council President Prof. A. D.
Moore of the engineering college
said Thursday,
Prof. Moore said George Conk-
lin of Chicago, following his sec-
ond visit here Wednesday, is "even
more confident in his opinion that
the area will continue to go down-
hill unless steps are taken."
The area eyed for rehabilita-
tion by city, officials is bounded
roughly by Detroit, DepotM "ain
and Catherine Streets. It has been
pointed out that the area is not a
slum but is an area of unrelated
land uses.
The council president said
Conklin reiterated an e a r 1 i e r
statement that "the area looks
Suitable for redevelopment under
a Housing and Home Agency pro-
gram."
Since the representative's first
visit, Ann Arbor's City Council
has directed the City Planning
Commission office to lay the
groundwork for asking for a plan-
ning loan from the agency.

for completion in December,
according to Dean Ralph A. Saw-
yer of the graduate school, who is
the director of the Phoenix Pro-
ject.
A self-sustaining "chain reac-
tion" will be started shortly after
the fuel is installed. Over a period
of a few months, the power of the
reactor will then be increased
slowely. The increase will con-
tinue until it reaches an average
operating level of 100,000 watts.
A gift of $1,000,000 from the
Ford Motor Company Fund has
made the construction and use of
the reactor possible.
WORK:
Furnishing
Apartments
Quite a Job
The gap which separates a bar-
ren cubicle and a "liveable" room
is transcended only by much toil,
both physical and mental.
But for those University stu-
dents fortunate enough to have
the necessary cubicle, the job of
outfitting it is a pleasant one,
work notwithstanding. The end
results are as widely varied as the
personalities of the toilers.
Ann Arbor shops do a booming
business at this time of year. Es-
sentials such as coffee-pots, fry-
ing pans, lamps, not-too-expensive
items of furniture are bought up
in a steady stream. The more
esoteric shops are beseiged by
tragic-eyed shoppers with a pen-
chant for bamboo curtains, per-
forated sculpture, and agonizingly
contorted lamps.
Still other shoppers go in for the
sturdier, more home-grown furni-
ture. Husky lamps hewn from
rugged oak, pot-bellied coffee-
makers, sturdy-legged chairs with
comfortably fat cushions make up
the staples of their buying.
Two of three occupants of a
four-room apartment near dampus
spent two days in argument over
which, panting should be hung 'on
their living room wall. One in-
-sisted on Picasso's "The Lovers"
while his roomate demanded "Girl
in Pink" by Modigliani.
As an apartment begins to take
shajpe, students new to the off-
campus life are made aware of the
exigencies of house-keeping., An
apartment crew which arrived
early were dismayed when, after
two weeks of failing to empty the
garbage, a flock of fruit-flies took
over the disposal problem.

Research into mental health

this month in the new Mental
Health Research Unit of the

School faculty bythe Regents in
their July meeting.
Concentrate on Causes
With Dr. Miller coordinating
activities, the staff will concen-
trate on the causes of mental ill-
ness giving special attention to

team at the University of Chicago.
Each man an expert in a diff-
erent field, they will do compre-
hensive research from various
approaches. Dr. Miller has been
chairman of the psychology de-
partment at the University of
Chicago since 1951. The Regents
appoihted him a professor of
