;ACETIME RESEARCH:
'U' Engineering Faculty Advances Atomic Programs

I

(EDITOR'S NOTE: This is the
last in a series of nine articles con-
cerning the atom, atomic energy,
its utilization and the important
scientists who contributed to the
advancement of the Atomic Age.)
By GERALD LUNDY
Few realize how varied are the
activities of the University's Col-
lege of Engineering faculty.
In addition to the prime func-
tion of furnishing the nation and
world with tomorrow's builders and
researchers, it is connected with
research work concerning peace-
time application of atomic energy
in industry.
A number of professors in the
engineering school are associated
with research work being conduct-
ed at the Phoenix Memorial Proj-
ect which .is devoted to research
for the peacetime use of atomic
energy. 1
Faculty Initiative
All research work being carried
on at the Phoenix project is the
result of University faculty initia-
tive.

It is thought that there is the
possibility of using atomic radia-

crude oil, a process designed to
transform crude oil into gasoline.
If this proves to be true, indus-
trial processes in the production
of gasoline would be less complex
and expensive. Such simplified

they are continually flushed by an

LECTURE,
POSTPONED
Dr. Bunche, Under Secretary of the United Nations, is now on a special
mission 1o the Middle East and will be unable to fill his engagement here

presence can be detected in the
bath with a geiger counter.
Besides being an efficient means
of determining gear wear, this
method also has two rather dis-
tinct advantages: "the hot gear
test" can be used to determine the
efficiency of the design of the gears
in addition to the durability of the
metal as the gear operates.
These representative experi-
ments are just a few of many that
are being carried on in the Uni-
versity which may increase indus-
trial uses of atomic energy.
Inklings of Future
But they give just an "inkling"
as to the great future that peace-
time development of atomic energy
holds for the individual and the1
world.
With atomic energy, sensibly
used, man can attack those illness-
es with which he has struggled in
years past. With the nuclear re-
actor there is the promise of a
cheaper and more abundant source
of power for the world's homes and
industries.
Man's friend, the radioisotopes,
has given him promise of more
abundant crops, simplified medical
diagnosis and treatment, and an
understanding of the physical'
structure of the organic and in-
organic world that surrounds him.
Now some of the actions and
reactions that occur in the world
which were once so mysterious
and inexplicable, are easier to un-
derstand, giving man a firm sci-
entific basis for his inquiries.
And now a modern world stands
on the threshold of a promising
young age to reap the harvest of
years of research-the results of
man's triumphant conquest of the
atom.
