'um Modernizes Displays'

By NAN MARKEL
The University and surround-
ing areas will soon benefit from
more up to date and complete
natural science displays.
The Natural Science Exhibit
Museum is adding a fluorescent
working model of the solar system
and a planetarium which will al-
low visitors to sit and watch the
changes in the heavens through
any season or year.
It will be housed in a newly
built alcove on the fourth floor of
the building. The entry to the al-
cove will contain other displays
on astronomy, including one on
the origin of the solar system.
Steps Toward Modernization
Museum Director Irving G. Rei-
mann said that this is just one
step in the 'proposed moderniza-
tion of the museum. He proposes
to "take advantage of modern
architecture to make the exhibits
more effective."
Previously the Museum con-
tained only displays, housed in old
fashioned cases, on anthropology
and biological principles.
The Museum staff started on
the project less than a month ago.
By reducing the area in the cen-
ter and making alcoves, more
space will be added. Specific dis-
plays can be housed in each room,
makings a coherent whole.
To Add Halls
To complete coverage in the
natural sciences, the museum' is
adding a hall on mineralogy, rocks
and geologilcal phenomena, in ad-
dition to the astronomy hall.
Y There will also be an alcove
showing the geological history of
Michigan and a landscape show-
ing particulars of rock formation
as in the Grand Canyon and
Mount Vesuvius.
The landscape will be three di-
mensional, made out of transpar-
ent painted plastic. Pushbuttons

Car Owners
Must Report'
Tran's fers
Any changes in student auto-
mobile registration plates must
be reported within five days to
the Office of Student Affairs, ac-
cording to Karl Stfeiff, Assistant
Dean of Men.
With plate changes occurring
recently in Michigan and in many
other states, it will be necessary
for students to report these
changes almost immediately.
Dean Streiff also emphasized
thai any changes in ownership,
address of owner, storage location
or type of use must also be re-
ported within five days,
"We have students getting into
trouble or finding themselves
faced with a fine simply because
they fail to report such a simple
thing as ' permanently leaving
their car at home," he said.
Hatcher Tea'
Given Today
The Hatcher Open House will
be held from 4:00 to 6:00 today.
Those houses being honored are
Pi Beta Phi, Alpha Epsilon Phi,
Chi Phi, Phi Kappa Psi, Sigma
Alpha Mu, Hayden House and
Strauss in East Quad, Scott House
in South Quad, Couzens Hall, Hel-
en Newberry House, and Park

Mrs. Wilbur Pierpont, Mrs.
Marvin Niehuss, and six house di-
rectors will be present.
Mrs. Margaret Willis of Pi Beta
Phi, Mrs. Lorene Adkisson of Al-
pha Epsilon Phi, Mrs. Isabel
Quail of Couzens, Mrs. Ruth Mer-
rill of Newberry House, Mrs.
Emily Lowry of Hayden House,
and Mrs. Grace Twissof Strauss
House will be hostesses.

Michigan Junior Colleges
To Join in 'Michigan Day'

Approximately 120 students
from nine Michigan junior col-
leges will participate in the an-
nual "Michigan Day" this Thurs-
day at the University.
"The day is primarily designed
to allow the junior college stu-
dents to receive academic and ad-
missions counseling," Barry Sha-
piro, '59, said. Shapiro is the gen-
eral chairman of the event, spon-
sored jointly by the Michigan
Union and the admissions office.
"By coming to the University as
a group instead of singly, the
Junior college transferees will be
able to take part in an organized
program which they would other-
wise miss." Shapiro continued.
Michigan Day, which is similar
to "University Day" (a late-Spring
program to acquaint freshman
applicants from Michigan with
the University) ,will open offi-
cially at 10 a.m. Thursday with
an assembly at Rackham Audi-
torium.
At that time Sidney Straight,
admissions counselor, and Don-
ald Young, '58,, Union president,
will welcome the students.
Following the assembly the
various schools will hold open
houses, followed by academic
counseling in the Union.
A luncheon banquet in the An-
derson Room of the Union will
highlight the day. Main speaker
at the banquet will be James A.
Lewis, vice president of student
affairs. In addition to the address
by Lewis, the students will also
hear John A. Harris, '58, captain
of the tennis team and president
of the Varsity "M" Club, and John
Herrnstein, '59 Ed., captain of
next year's varsity football team.-

Preparation -for Michigan Day,
aside from correspondence, has
been going on for about a month
and a half, according to Shapiro.
John T. Prentice, Jr., admissions
counselor, has been working close-
ly with Shapiro and his commit-
tee.

MODERNIZING THE MUSEUM-Workers on the Natural Science
Exhibit Museum staff build partitions to house new displays. This
is the beginning of a project which will divide the building into
alcoves, a more modern method of display 'than the old exhibit
cases.

lar formations.
Work to Continue
Reimann expects that the mod-
ernization will continue for some
years. After astronomy and geolo-
gy are added, the museum staff
will continue working from the
top floor down. Gradually, Rei-

mann said, all the old type ex-
hibits will give way.
The Natural Science Exhibit
Museum does not only service Uni-
versity science majors. Its displays
are directed to the general public
and school children from fourth
grade up. Displays are geared to
adult level, guides are provided for
children.
All museum displays will be
open to the public while the al-
teration is going on.,
