GEOPHYSICAL YEAR:
Wexler Describes Research

By RICHARD RABBIDEAU
The International Geophysical
Year may "provide answers to
questions not yet formulated"
concerning man's environment,
according to Harry Wexler, chief
scientistnfor the United States In-
ternational Geophysical Year An-
arctic Program.
Wexler, speaking yesterday in
the Rackham Amphitheater, de-
scribed the vast network of sta-
tions throughout the world where
studies will be made on the move-
ment of heat and water, the phys-
ics of the upper atmosphere and
the earth's crust, interior and
shape.
A partnership of 57 cooperat-
ing nations, the International Geo-
physical Year is the third such at-
tempt to pool the scientific knowl-
edge of many nations in order to
investigate such physical phenom-
ena as glacial structure and move-
ments, atmospheric disturbances
and solar radiation.

newest addition, the study of nu-
clear radiation.
Within an hour after an unus-
ual solar disturbance is discovered,
all stations will bp notified so that
they will be able to accelerate and
intensify their observations in
their area.
Wexler and President Laurence
M. Gould of Carleton College,
Northfield, Minn., returned in
March from a month's tour of the
Antarctic continent where they in-
spected the stations which will be
the United States' contribution to
the Antarctic Program.
Gould, director of the program,
was chief scientist on the first
Byrd expedition to the area in
1928-30.
Illustrating his description of
the Antarctic preparations with
slides, Wexler spoke of the seismo-
graphic testing of glacier depth
which has thus far revealed gla-
ciers which may be as deep as 10,-
000 feet, and of the precarious op-
eration of transfering men and
equipment to the great Ross Ice
Shelf.
In a press conference held yes-
terday morning, Wexler reported
that 50 stations have been estab-
lished in the Antarctic region, of
which the United States will be in
charge of seven.

Mark Start
Of Cerebral
Palsy .Drive
This is National Cerebral Palsy
month.
Most states will hold fund rais-
ing drives, but in Michigan United
Cerebral Palsy is a member of the
Michigan United Fund.-
This year's drive is known as
the "Golden Deed Crusade." Its
object in Michigan is learning
more about Cerebral Palsy, accord-
ing to Dr. E. R. Costich, president
of the United Cerebral Association
of Washtenaw County.
Cerebral palsy is not a single
disease. It is a general term for a
lack of muscular control caused by
injury to certain parts of the brain.
The disease may be caused by
from faulty pre-natal brain cell
development, infectious disease,
physical injury or others not yet
discovered. Cerebral palsy can be
contracted by anyone, before or
after birth.
The two most common types of
the disease are the athetoid (with-!
out voluntary control) and the!
spastic. The muscles of the former
are normal but he cannot control
them and is therefor subject to in-
voluntary movements. Facial gri-
macing is a common symptom.

Community Should Help
Rehabilitation: Pohlmann

Kenneth E. Pohlmann, of the
United Mine Workers, said recent-
ly in the days before World War I
rehabilitation was a community
effort but today "people have
grown flabby on the milk of hu-
man kindness."
Speaking at the twelfth state
convention of the Federation of
the PhysicallyHandicapped, Inc.,
Saturday Pohlmann cited com-
munity responsibilities in rehabil-
itation. He outlined the struggle
of the handicapped for "self-suf-
ficiency and gainful employment."
In describing the change from
individual to group effort, he said,
"People are playing a secondary
role to organizations in rehabili-
tation today."
As to the problems of the han-
dicapped he said, "We have to
meet these problems. America

"In 1940 vocational rehabili-
tation progress was ineffective on
the state level."
After World War II, state de-
partments found a great nieed for
vocational rehabilitation among
servicehmen who had returned
from the war with physical disa-
bilities, he added.
Speaking of his organization's
work in this field, he said, "In 1947
the United Mine Workers' progress
in this field showed the way to
state rehabilitation programs to
bring the handicapped back to be-
ing useful, productive citizens."
Pohlmann then described the
work done in mining states in gen-
eral to establish nation-wide pro-
grams for relief of the handi-
capped.
Describing the economics of ef-
fective vocational rehabilitation,
Pohlmann said, "Rehabilitation
pays dividends. For every dollar
the federal government spends, it
gets ten dollars back in taxes.

Police Quell
Student Riof
At Wiseonsiii
Approximately 2,000 students
participated in a riot at the Unit-
versity of Wisconsin May 8, ac-
cording to the Wisconsin Daily
Cardinal.
Two students were booked by
police on charges of disorderly
conduct.
Bystanders reported that the
riot began with a water light be-
tween a sorority and a fraternity
house at 7:15 p.m. Police were
called about 8 p.m. and Dean of
Men Theodore Zillman arrived 20
minutes later, the Cardinal said.
Water-throwers, clad mainly in
bathing suits, concentrated, on
Zillman and police after their am.
rival. Few participants escaped
dousings during the riot.
Police officers snapped picturek
of the crowd as it milled in the
streets. The pictures, Zillman said
will be given to a faculty com
mittee on student conduct fo
identification of the rioters.
Attempted panty raids after the
water fight were stopped by police.
The riot ended at 12:20 a.m.
