Fund Group
Solves New
The Campus Chest Board yes-
terday held an Executive Com-
mittee meeting in an effort to do
away with its more pressing or-
ganizational problems.
A new organization on campus,
the Campus Chest was designed on
the Community Chest principle of
replacing a community's separate
charity drives with one strong one.
This is done for the purpose of
collecting greater funds for all and
for cutting down the, percentage
of contributions normally spent on
+caMpaign costs.
Represents All Organizations
Members of the Executive Com-
mittee include the representatives
of all major campus organizations,
Prof. Lee Worrell of the Pharmacy
School and the Ann Arbor Com-
munity Chest, and University
Vice-President for Student At-
lairs James A.Lewis.
The board was primarily faced)
with a rejection, by the SGC, be-
cause of their recommendation
that the first drive be held next
falland in conjunction with the
Ann Arbor Community Chest,
SGC recommended a Campus
drive this spring and keep open
the possibility of holding a joint
drive. with the city next fall. The
Board accepted the SGC recom-
At the meeting, the board also
had to determine a method of al-
locating the Galens a share of
the proceeds.
The Galens, an organization of
students, faculty and .,alumni of
the College of Medicine, have long.
conducted bucket drives to raise
funds. for their pet project, a work-
shop in the University hospital
for use of recuperating patients.
Galens Unique
But the Galens are unique, with
respect to other campus fund-
raising organizations, because they
raise a great deal of money from
within the main part of Ann Ar-
bor, -as: well as from buckets on
As a unified drive, the Campus
Chest had not wanted the Galens
to conduct a second .harity drive,
and requested that the Galens not
place buckets on campus during
their drive this year.
However, Bob Kretzchmar, pres-
ident of Galens, asked that they
be given a portion of the Campus
Chest's proceeds as compensation
for revenue normally gained from
those buckets.
The board decided that the Ga-
lens will be guaranteed an amount
of money equal to the amount nor-
mally collected by the Galens' on-
campus buckets.
Should the Campus Chest go
over its goal, the Galens will re-
ceive a greater amount of money
on a pro rated basis.
Neither the Galens' percentage
of the funds collected, nor the
amount of the minimum guaran-
tee were arrived at.
Requests Board
To handle the distribution of
funds, Vice-President Lewis mor
tioned to establish an allocations
board as a sub-committee of the
Camapus Chest Board.
Its members are to include a
representative of the faculty, a

representative of the administra-
tion, and three students not al-
ready members of the Chest Board
ganization desiring a share of the
This committee will also handle
budgetary problems within the
Campus Chest organization.
Executive Committee meetings
are chaired by Don MacLennan
of, the IHC and its vice chairman
is SGC's Rod Comstock.

Research Lab Gets
Mechanical Brain

-Daily-Larry Carbonelil
THE GIANT 650 COMPUTER-Gerald C. Bailey stands before
the .instrument panel of the new IBM mathematical brain.
Although the instrument's ability to crack mathematical problems
is amazing, it still needs that initial push from man.


"The most important event for
the Statistical Research Labora-
tory. during 1955-56 was the ac-
quisition of an IBM 650 Magnetic
Drum Data Processing Machine,"
declared Cecil' C. Craig, head of
the department.
650, as It- is referred to by its
operators, is a giant Mathematical
brain capable not only of solving
ten digit problems in 1/100 of a
second, but can also go through
as many as 2,000 separate steps
to answer a single mathematical
Show Great Response
Craig observed that the size and
immediacy of the response to the
availability of the new equipment
was surprising.
Over 400 staff and graduate stu-
dents, on campus have been given
formal instruction in the use of
the machine.
Some 80 students enrolled in
math classes began to use the 650
for laboratory immediately after
its installation in May.
There are two primary uses for
the instrument, instruction and
pure, unsponsored research. Two
groups have predominately made
use of the 650, graduate students,
Group Plans
Tropics Talk.
i~hi Sigma, biological science
honorary, will hold its first lecture
of the season Thursday, according
to James Hardin of the Botany
The talk, which is entitled
"General Geography of Tropical
America," will begin at 8:00 at
Rackham Amphitheater.
This lecture is the first of a
series on "The American Tropics."
Other talks will cover plants, past
civilization, anthropology, and.
public health of this land.

and PhD candidates. However,
sponsored research originating
within the University of a suitably
scientific character may also be
brought to the 650 for a fee.
Special Rental Fee
Regarding ,be cost of the
mathematical brain, the Univer-
sity rents it from IBM for $2,000
per month. Ordinarily, rental of
the machine would run about $5,-
000, but IBM contributes 60 per
cent of this amount to qualifying
institutions, which use the 650 at
least 50 per cent of the time for
instruction and pure research.
Although the 650 can rapidly
perform, without any intervention,
a long sequence of instructions, it
still cannot think for itself.
Therefore, a skilled technician
has to man it, that is lay out a
program for it. The machine car-
rying out code directions, sorts,
bills, takes inventory, schedules,
b o o k k e e p s, makes tabulations
along with myriad other capabili-

Positions Open
Petitions are available for four
positions on both the sophomore
and junior Engineering Class
Boards, according to Jorge Beh-
ringer, '59E, president of the soph-.
amore board.-
They may be obtained from four
locations around the Engineering
College: main bulletin board of
East Engineering, main entrance
of East Engineering, bulletin board
of West Engineering near the
arch, and second floor of West
Petitions must be in 248 West

Pattons Face
Each Other
As Leaders
In addition to the annual foot-
ball rivalry between Michigan and
Michigan State, a family rivalry
will take place on the field Satur-
Gurdon "Champ" Patton, '57,.
drum major of the University
Marching Band and his brother,
Archie Patton, Jr., drum major of
the M. S. U. Marching Band will
face each other on the football
field in the fourth annual renewal
of their family musical "feud."
Both boys are in their senior
year at the two universities. The
game Saturday will mark their last
appearance against each other at
the heads of the two bands.
Archie, the older of the two boys,
commented the situation has "cre-
ated some problems of family loy-
alty at the games." The Pattons
are residents of Mt. Morris.
Along with this "last," the
M.S.U. Marching Band will chalk
up a "first" in opening its 1956
season Saturday.
Karen Lynn Olson, a State juni-
or will dance during halftime, in-
terpreting the band's arrangement
of "Flamingo". Miss Olson spe-
cializes in dance in the M.S.U.
physical education department.
In answer to last year's band
performance called "Where Do We
Go From Here?" which satirized
the growin gcomnplexity of modern
band formations, the Spartan
band will present "The Music's
The Thing."
M.S.U. Band Director, Leonard
V. Falcone, commented that the
show will lay emphasis on the qua-
lity of the music rather than on
intricate field formations.
Basic musical elements of
rhythm, melody and harmony will
be stressed, Falcone said.
Suez Crisis
iscussion Set
A panel and public discussion on
the Suez Canal crisis will be held
at 7:30 p.m., October 9, Rackham
Lecture Hall.
Participating in the panel, which
is sponsored by the International
Students Association, will be Ed-
ward H. Moss, consul for Great
Britain, from Detroit; Paul Des-
pount, consul for France, from De-
troit; and Salah Tawfig, cultural
attache from the Egyptian Em-
bassy, Washington, D. C. Andry
Chaudry, ISA president will be
chairman of the discussion.
Stop SignA
May Go Soon
Stop signs may be replaced, in
some instances by yield-right-of-
way signs, city council action indi-
cated at Monday night's meeting.
The council approved an ordin-
ance permitting the use of the
sighis, which do not require a full
The ordinance amendment was
first introduced two weeks ago by
Councilman Charles Joiner, who
said he was impressed by the ef-
fectiveness of such signs while on
a recent trip.

A Plea
TIMACAN, Ont. (I)-A sign
painted in big Russian letters
appeared mysteriously on a
rock north of this tourist cen-
ter. It puzzled everyone. Looked
sinister too.
Villagers gathered eagerly
when a tourist hep to the Rus-
sian language turned up.
"Girls," he translated, "where
are you?"
