The Atomic Energy Commis-
sion's "Atoms for Peace" exhibit
will be on display at the University
Exhibit Museum Friday through
April 13.
In simple do-it-yourself terms,
the exhibit has been prepared to
acquaint the public with up to
date developments in the field of
nuclear energy, Museum Director
Irving G. Reimann said.
Set 'Chain Reaction"
By pushing a button, the spec-
tator will be able to set off a chain
reaction (harmless, for demonstra-
tion purposes); by pushing an-
other button, he can operate a 16
foot model of an atomic energy
plant for producing electricity. A
third button will activate a visual
and audible explanation of the
use of radio isotopes in plant fer-
tilization studies.
In another section of the 7000
feet marked off for the display on
the Museum's fourth floor, a pair
of mechanical hands, designed for
handling "hot" cells and radio-
active apparatus, will be featured.
Remote Control Shown
The hands are a "master-slave"
unit. Spectators may, like the nu-
clear technicians, transmit move-
ments of their hands by a sen-
sitive arrangement of pulleys,
gears, and cables to a pair of
pincers capable of reproducing all
the normal movements of w hu-
man thumb and two fingers.
One of the several "island" dis-
plays will be a balloon suit, a
transparent coverall worn by per-
sonnel in attendance in radio-
active atmospheres. Insulating lay-
ers of air are fed into the suit

Five scholarships will be offered
to University Sophomore men who
have displayed outstanding
achievements both scholastically
and in campus activities, accord-
ing to Assistant Dean of Men Ivan
W. Parker.
These scholarships, given by the
Alfred P. Sloan Foundation, will
range from $200 to $1200. Accord-
ing to the stipulations of the Sloan
Foundation the grants will not be
based on need, but on the merits
of the applicant.
Dean Parker ekplained the Sloan
Foundation did not want the
grants to be based on need, be-
cause they wanted the awards to
be primarily a recognition of
achievement.
He urged sophomore men who
are active in campus affairs and
have at least a 3.2 point average
to apply to the Scholarship office.
