J', State Join To Evaluate'
ighway Service Economy

University and State Highway
Department engineers will join
next month on a project designed
to provide the most economical
highway service possible through
the elimination of all inadequate
highways in the state road sys-
Prof. William Housel of the en-
gineering college told a meeting
of manufacturing, commercial, ag-
ricultural and trucking industry
leaders at the Civic Center in
Lansing that the long-range study
Six Leetures
On State U''
Religion Set
"Religion and the State Uni-
versity" will be the topic of six
lectures to be delivered at the
University during the spring se-
The series commemmorates the
Centennial of Student Religious
Activity at the University, 1858 to
1958. It is sponsored by the Of-
fice of Religious Affairs and the
Committee on Studies in Religion
of the literary college,
The 'Rev. Fr. John Courtney
Murray, S.J., will open the series
next Tuesday with "A Roman
Catholic View of State University
Education.". Father Murray is a
theology professor at Woodstock

Judaic Studies and Social Philo-
sophy at Drew University. He is
author of the sociological study
"Protestant - Catholic - Jew" and

will evaluate the combined effects

of design, weather and traffic on
pavement behavior.
Engineers will first locate those
system which are capable of car-
rying the full legal truck loads all
year and those which cannot. Aft-
er locating particularly strong or
weak sections, the engineers will
make detailed examinations to de-
termine the underlying reasons.
A total of 9,300 miles of road will
be checked.
Recommendations to Com
From this research, Prof. Housel
said, will come design recommen-
dations to be used by the High-
way Department in its five-year
construction program.
The research projects will be
conducted by the University's
Transportation Institute In coop-
eration with the State Highway
Department. It will be directed
by Prof. Housel, who will act as
research consultant to the De-
partment. The Michigan Trucking
Association, the American Truck-
ing Association and the Automo-
bile Manufacturers Association,
donated $45,000 to finance the re-
Institute engineers are equip-
ping a two-ton truck with sensi-
tive equipment to measure and re-
cord the "profile" of the road, the
total pavement irregularities per
mile, and the "roll" of the road,
or difference in elevation between
the wheel tracks.
Compare Profiles
By comparing the profile of the
road with 'those: to be taken at,
later dates, the strength of the
road can be measured, Prof.
Housel said. If the profile remains
the same, the road's subgrade is
stable; if the profiles vary, the
subgrade is not stable, and the
pavement will have to be re-,
placed eventually.
It was also pointed out that
the survey of actual roads in serv-
ice will show how variations in
soil conditions, drainage and con-
struction are affected by local
weather conditions.
Prof. Housel added that In an-
other phase of the study: the
Transportation Institute will sup-
plement Highway Department in-
formation and the added shipping
costs caused by seasonal restric-
tions on truck loads and on the
relative cost of maintaining or re-
placing inadequate highways to
permit year-round use by com-
mercial vehicles.
The University truck will begin
surveying 3,200 miles .of primary
truck lines announced Wednesday
by State Highway Commissioner,
John C. Mackie, Prof. Housel said.

State Senate
Tables Bible
Study Issue
A proposed resolution to require
Michigan's public school children
to read the Bible was tabled by
the State Senate Judicipry Com-
mittee yesterday.
The resolution, suggested by a
Battle Creek school board member,
proposed a constitutional amend-
ment requiring students to read
ten verses of the Bible in school
each day.
It was also proposed that pupils
be made to memorize the Ten
Commandments and the Lord's
Prayer by the sixth grade. Pupils
could be excused from the re-
quirements, on written request of
their parents.
Commenting on the bill were
three Ann Arbor religious leaders
who testified in Lansing. All were
The Rev. Merrill Abbey, pastor
of the First Methodist Church,.
declared in Lansing that "churches'
believe best results are to be ob-
tained through voluntary effort
rather than compulsion." Rev.
Abbey represented the Michigan
Council of Churches.
Undermining the separation of
church and state was the objection
raised by the Rev. Edward Red-
man, pastor of the First Unitarian
Church. "The state would have to
make a choice as to which version
of the Bible would be used.
"There are too many editions of
the Bible to actually make a
choice," Rev. Redman said.
Supporting Rev. Redman's two
points was Rabbi Julius Weinberg
of the Beth Israel Community
Center. Rabbi Weinberg also ques-
tioned the competence of teachers
to handle the course material.
"Teachers are trained and hired
for teaching course matter in their
specific fields. None has been
trained in theological seminaries,"
the rabbi said.
Hitting, the resolution on the
grounds of practicability was Rev.
Fr. John Bradley of St. Mary's
Student Chapel..
Fr. Bradley said that in order to
teach the course fairly, it would
seem there would have to be a
separate course for Protestants,
Jewish and Catholic students. This
just could not be done under to-
day's circumstances, he declared.

...few new diseases"
Crane To Hold
Asia Seminar
A seminar on the "Background
History of Modern South East
Asia" will be conducted by Prof.
Robert I. Crane of the history de-
partment at 2 p.m. today in Rm;
3B of the Union.
While designed to prepare can-
didates for the South East Asian
delegation scheduled for this sum-
mer, the seminar is open to the
public, according to Dan Slobin,
'61, of the South East Asian pre-
paration committee.
The seminar is the first in a
series of programs on South East
Asia. "Current Trends in South
East Asia" is the title of the sec-
ond seminar by Prof. Crane to be
held Feb. 22.
Prof. Russell Fifield of the poli-
tical science department will also
participate in the program.
Rushing As Usual
On Monday-Trost
Fraternity rushing will be held
the regularly scheduled hours
from 7 to 9:30 p.m. Monday, the
night of the Michigan-Michigan
State basketball game, according
to Rob Trost, '58, Interfraternity
Council president.

"There ire very few new dis-
eases; man is still suffering from
the same diseases of past cen-
turies," Dr. Rene J. Dubos said.
Dr. Dubos, microbiologist at the
Rockefeller Institute of Medical
Research, made this statement at
Rackham Auditorium, where he
spoke on the "Evolution of Infec-
tious Disease."
Although each civilization had
its particular diseases, Dr. Dubos!
said, the most common infectious
diseases, such as tuberculosis,
scarlet fever, and leprosy can be
traced through these civilizations
to the present.
These diseases follow large nat-
ural cycles. They begin with great
severity and spread quite rapidly,
but after dying out they may not
appear for two or three genera-
"The sweating sickness, which
was so prevalent during Tudor
England," Dr. Dubos pointed out,
"brought catastrophic events."
Within a few days it killed one-
half the population in many com-
munities. However, the disease
disappeared suddenly with no
evidence of where it came from.
Some scientists believe it was a
form of our present day virus.
Dr. Dubos explained these in-
fectious diseases are most preva-
lent and severe when contracted
by a newly exposed population.
"During the first spreading of the
disease, he said, "the population
dies young, leaving no children."
The survivors of the epidemic
bear a stronger generation and a
resistance to the disease develops.
With America's protective medi-
cation and successful sanitation,

the United States has eliminated
much of the disease common in
childhood. However, the doctor
brought out, the adult popula-
tion will suffer more with these
diseases than would the children.
Dr. Dubos said that much to
the disappointment of many bi-
ologists, we are not decreasing our
supply of diseases.
"Once a disease disappears an-
other quickly takes its place," he
concluded, "because as long as
man lives and continues to adapt
to new environmental conditions
infectious diseases will continue."

Dubos Lectures on Infectious Diseases

Emphasizing that relocation
plans for residents who might be;
displaced "must be fair to all con-
cerned," the Ann Arbor League of
Women Voters Wednesday voiced
support for the city's projected ur-:
ban renewal program.
Group members called an urban
renewal program the "best solu-
tion" to the problem of improving
Ann Arbor's north central area.
In agreeing upon the program's;
desirability, the women's organi-
zation approved plans of supple-;
menting local efforts with federal;
support in both planning and;
