Quad
Station

Remodeled
Amidst a tangle of wires and a
technical discussion sits a bright
new transmitter waiting to be in-
stalled in the West Quar basement
studio of WCBN, the radio net-
work of the Quads.
At the present time the West
Quad station is in the process of
rebuilding. Both South and East
Quads are now equipped with new
studios, and West Quad will soon
be wdrking with new equipment.
The basement studio will have
new turn-tables along with the
new transmitter.
Although the West Quad studio
is not finished, the target date
for complete operation of the net-
work is September 24, although
there is doubt as to whether re-
modeling will be completed by
that date.
WCBN has begun operations in
spite of the handicap. South Quad
is now broadcasting; they are
transmitting background music
from the Detroit FM station
WLDM. West Quad will be broad-
casting occasionally, using their
old transmitter.
At the present time WCBN has
studios in West, South, and East
Quads. It is also getting transmit-
ters set up in Martha Cook and
Victor Vaughn dormitories. WCBN
officials hopes of getting trans-
mitters in dormitories on the Hill
soon.

'U' Scientists'
Use Atomic
'Hot Coals'
Using "hot coals" from a govern-
ment atomic furnace, university
scientists and engineers have be-
gun a major search for new ma-
terials formed by exposure to nu-
clear radiation.
The "coals" are radioactive fuel
elements that are slowly losing
their strength after being removed
from the Atomic Energy Commnis-
sion's Materials Testing Reactor at
Arco, Idaho.
They are still very potent, and
are the only ones in use outside
government installations, Prof. H.
A. Ohlgren, supervisor of the En-
gineering Research Institute pro-
ject, reports.
The four elements, each two feet
long, arrived this summer and are
stored under 16 feet of water in a
well in the Phoenix Memorial Lab-
oratory for atomic research.
As "used" fuel elements, they
differ from the new, nonradioac-
tive ones the University also re-
ceived during the summer for in-
stallation in the Ford Nuclear Re-
actor this fall.
And because they contain a num-
ber of important radioactive iso-
topes in highly concentrated form,
the "used" elements also differ
from the single-isotope Cobalt 60
sources the University has been us-
ing for years, Prof. Ohlgren says.
In fact, the fuel elements and a
cobalt source can be combined to
form "one of the most powerful
sources of radiation energy in the
world," he points out.
Prof. Ohlgren's group has set up
equipment for piping chemical
mixtures past the radioactive ele-
ments at various rates as the tem-
perature, pressure and catalyst are
changed.
They plan to do this with the
components of more than 250
chemical products to find out what
happens., he said.
"Besides learning about the ba-
sic nature of these reactions, we
hope' to produce higher yields of
useful chemicals at low tempera-
tures and pressures, find new
methods for economical manufac-
ture of chemical products by or-
dinary means, and uncover total-
ly new products."

Political Science was honored re-E
cently by the German Governmentc
for his work in that country. i
West Germany's President Thee-S
dor Heuss decorated Prof. Pollock
with the Grand Order for Meritc
medal at Villa Hammerschmidt,
the German White House, Augustt
31.

Prof. Pollock has long been ac-
tive in German affairs. Following
World War II he served as advis-
or to General Lucius Clay and John
J. McCloy, former High Commis-
sioner to Germany.
In the early years of the Allied
occupation, he assisted in rebuild-
ing the German government, par-
ticularly the Council of States at
Stuttgart. Prof. Pollock also has

IMPORTANT MESSAGE
When a retailer receives a barrage of telephone calls and
letters from University students who have heard rumors &
facts about the quality & style of merchandise shown in this
shop for over a quarter century.
-Well it almost never happens in the apparel business. But
it has happened with Saffell & Bush for fall of '56.
-Come in and introduce yourself to the personnel. It will
be a joy and privilege to put you in the Saffell & Bush trend.

been interested in the revival of
free German, elections and politi-
cal parties.
In recent years he has been
President of Franz Lieber Haus,
an American foundation which has
been assisting German organiza-
tions and institutions fostering a
unified and democratic Germany.
Expected to return soon from his
trip abroad, Prof. Pollock attended
the meeting of the International
Political Science Association, of
which he is president, at the As-
sociation's headquarters in Gene-
va.
The political science department
chairman is a past president of the
American Political Science Asso-
ciation and he also served on the
first Hoover Commission in 1947-
1949.
Prof. Pollock was also awarded
the Medal for Merit, the highest
American civilian decoration, in
1946 for his work in Germany af-
ter the war.

"THIS IS THE PLACE"
Yes, this is the place where you
have 150 bicycles to choose from.
And every one of them is waiting
eagerly to carry you swiftly and
gently to class and home again.
Choose from middleweights or lightweights . .
from 1-speed, 2-speed, 3-speed or 4-speed
models.
Choose luxuriant colors from ebony and wil-
lowly green to radiant red, in hard baked-on
enamels.
We invite you to ride any model around the
block and critically examine the handsome
fittings, the fine workmanship and easy handl-
ing.
