"Some of the paths of inter-
national law are overgrown and
unused by the governments of the
world," Prof. Philip C. Jessup of
the Columbia University Law
School said yesterday.
Prof. Jessup, speaking on "The
International Community Subject
to the Law," said international
law is looked down upon by law-
yers and laymen because they do
not comprehend the importance
of it.
In his lecture he sighted three
situations which show the atta-
tude people take on this type of
law. His first category was the
common law practitioner vs. the
international lawyer.
Stresses Apathy
The professor stressed the apa-
thy of the former, because the
man in common law never took
the time to examine the potentials
of international law. He said that
law and not bombs holds the fu-
ture of peace for the countries.
The president of the American
Bar Association said that it is
necessary to become as conversant
with this field of law as common
law lawyers are with tax laws.
Recognize importence
Prof. Jessup then mentioned the
case of the political realist and'
the international lawyer. "These
realists are so concerned with the
care of the power struggle that
they fail to realize how much of
international relations is gov-
erned by international law," he
Scientists are among the few

are last days of

groups of people who recognize
the importance of the law, the
professor said. The scientist
knows the destructive force of the
modern weapons, and he is
anxious to put the power of the
atomic age under the protection
of international law.
If the countries do not agree
to a body of law which would be
worked out to provide the maxi-
mum equality for all, there may
soon be no one left to worry about
peace, he said.
Prof. Jessup showed the success
of ma itime law by relating it to

international law. Maritime law,
he explained, has been worked out
over a period of time to balance
the interests of all countries con-
cerned. Also, this body of law has
proven very successful.
The secret of the entire pro-
gram is compromise. Although in-
ternational law would be unsuc-
cessful between Russia and the
U.S. at the present, countries with
like interests could get together
and form their own international
body of law. From this modest
beginning, could come a true
community of international law.

6 I

Research Physicist Robert W. Pike, like many other
physicists, engineers and mathematicians, came to
IBM directly from college. His degree is a B.S. in
Engineering Physics. Here he tells you why the elec-
tronie computer field is fascinating to the graduate
with a physics background

What's it liketo be with

"I became interested in computers and transistors at
college," Robert Pike recalls. "In fact, my senior
project was building a small computer. So, when I
graduated from the University of Maine in June, 1955,.
I naturally turned to the computer field. IBM, recog-
nized as a leader in this expanding electronics area,
looked like a good place for me."
Bob Pike began his IBM career as a Technical Engi-
neer, starting with a training program that lasted sev-.
eral months. Then, asked to select the work area of his
choice, he picked the Semi-Conductor Device Develop-
ment Group in Research. "My first assignment," he.
,says, "was to plot various electrical and physical de-
vice parameters for a large number of transistors in
the form of graphs or histograms in order to obtain
correlation coefficients of the device characteristics."
Many fascinating assignments
Other projects followed
in rapid succession:
Work on a germanium
drift, diffused base
transistor (he was the
second of his group to
' enter this field) ...
work on silicon as a
transistor material do-
ing evaporations of im-
purities on the silicon
(he is known as the
"pioneer silicon device
A problem in saturation resistance man of si oup).
"Silicon is better than germanium because of better
temperature and voltage breakdown points," he men-
tions. "But it is difficult to find a material to wet.
silicon to form alloyed junctions. I recall making the
small contacts with an ultrasonic soldering iron."
Bob Pike was promoted to Associate Physicist in
December, 1956. His present assignment is leading a
group of technicians in fabricating high-frequency,
high-power PNP drift transistors. "We use a process
I developed," he says. "These transistors will be used

niseces, "the extensive research facilities and the friendly
relations brought two
E.E. friends of mine to
IBM from Maine, my
Alma Mater."
His future? At the rate
IBM and the electronic
computer field are ex-
panding, he sees great<>
opportunities. Of
course, his own prog-
ress will be in ac-
cordance with IBM's
promotion policy-
"strictly on merit." He Plotting resist.; characteristics
has set a tentative goal of Project Engineer within
the next five years and expects to continue to specialize
in semi-conductor work.

Bob Pike lives in
Poughkeepsie, N. Y.,
near the Research Lab-
oratory, with his\ wife
and young son. He
finds time to garden
around his new home
and to participate in
the IBM Camera Club
and a local Audio
(Hi-Fi) Society. "It's
a busy life," he says,
".. . and one with a
stimulating future."


Reviewing technical publications

This profile is just one example of what it's like to be
with IBM. There are many other excellent opportuni-
ties for well-qualified college men in Research, Devel-
opment, Manufacturing, Sales and Applied Science.
Why not ask your College Placement Director when
IBM will next interview on your campus? Or, for
information about how your degree will fit you for
an IBM career, just write to:

Under the magic of Reiner's baton, you hear the Chicago Orchestra become a single
responsive instrument, as this superb conductor leads you through the classical
era of Mozart and Beethoven, the gay Vienna of the waltz kings, into the twentieth
century of Richard Strauss and Bart6k. You thrill to the vivid clarity of each
splendid performance as it comes to life.., on RCA Victor Records, of course!
