Sweeney Promotes 'U' Development
Competitive Bidding Key To
Hands Equally Important
Read and Use
By GERALD DeMAAGD
John W. Sweeney is technically
the editorial assistant of the Uni-
versity Development Council, but
his job includes more than prepar-
ing promotional material.
It is the aim of the Development
Council to solicit grants to the
University from private industry
and alumni. A part of Sweeney's
job is to re-write requests to busi-
ness that come from various de-
partments of the University. In
addition he acts as a trouble shoot-
er for Alan W. McCarthy, Director
of Development Council.
"The purpose of the 3rd Annual
Development Council Conference
held two weeks ago was to investi-
gate just how successful our pro-
motion has been," Sweeney said.
Present in Ann Arbor for the
conference were Development
Council board members, Alumni
Fund representatives, field repre-
sentatives, and loyal alumni who
are working with the University.
"We haven't been as successful
as we hoped to have been," Sween-
ey said. Only 8,738 alumni, about
one-eighth of the estimated 100,-
000 University alumni are -con-
tributing to the Alumni Fund he
pointed out. The Conference speci-
fically considered the actvities of
the Development Council program
for the past year, the third year
since the establishment of the
program. "In no case has the
program been a failure," Sweeney

The burden for imaginativeness

spades or no trump, but neither
had. One west's conclusion was
that partner had strength and
spades. So now, although too weak
to bid his first or second turn,
he bid two spades.
This hand is, of course, from a
duplicate game. No rubber bridge
player would risk a possible large
set to compete against a part
score. His reward? Nine tricks.
After the normal club lead, west
drew trump and eventually lost

The hands which attract the
most attention are the so-called
swing hands; those in which one
misstep can cost a partnership a
thousand or more points. These, of
course, are dramatic and of prime
importance in rubber bridge where

score hand becomes as important
as the game or slam hand. This

Charlie Smith answers:
They have an almost endless variety of interesting
problems to face, George. As a student of metallurgy,
you know that about two-thirds of all known chemical
elements are metals. Many of them are revealing valu-
able new applications, when highly purified on a com.
mercial scale. Du Pont is greatly interested in several
metallic and semi-metallic elements.
My own experience at Du Pont ranges from work
on titanium pigments, to metallic titanium production,
and to the ultra-pure silicon used in transistors. You
can appreciate some of our metallurgical problems when
I point out that impurities in transistor silicon have to
be below one part in 100 million. That's equivalent to
one nound of imnurities distributed through a train of
