PARIS (A'). - British scientists
were reported yesterday to have
discovered how to control for
peaceful uses the awesome power
released in hydrogen explosions.
Diplomats of three nations said
Britain's government Is preparing
to announce soon some details of
what has been described as a con-

William M. Holaday also told the Senate Preparedness subcom-

of the intermediate-range ballistic missile.

"We are accelerating the Atlas program," he added. The Atlas
is an ICBM designed to carry a nuclear warhead, to targets 5,000 miles
or more away. It is being develpped by the Air Force. Holaday was

Sukarno's Departure Runiored }
Earlier, it had been announced
that the 56-year-old Sukarno is
leaving the country within a week
to recuperate from mental and-
physical exhaustion.
Premier Djuanda, a Socialist
nonparty man, asked Parliament
to. swear in Speaker Sartono, a
56-year-old moderate Nationalist,
as acting president, but a govern-
ment spokesman indicated the
Premier and Gen. Nasution ac-
tually will run things.
' These contradictory statements
left observers in the dark as to,
what actually was happening be-
hind the scenes. "
Orderly Seizure Planned
Gen. Nasution's orders to all
military commanders directed
them to take supervisory control
of seized Dutch enterprises in an
orderly way and to bring all prob-
lems in connection with the super-
vision to' the central military ad-.
ministration and the government.
It further directed military ad-
ministrators to mobilize experts,
including Dutch citizens, under
martial law regulations to assure
the smooth operation of the super-
vised firms, but not to employ
Dutch nationals formerly in the
armed services or intelligence. He
said this restriction was for se-
curity reasons.

Senate Group resumed its investi-
gating of why the United States
has falled behind the Soviet Union
in some sections of the missile and
satellite fields.
He acknowledged that it was a
mistake not to use the Army's suc-
cessful Jupiter-C missile, an IR-
'BM, in an effort to put a satellite
into orbit as early as September
1956. The first Soviet Sputnik went
up last Oct. 4.
Army Preparing Satellite
The Army has now been assigned
to get a satellite up with a modi-
fied Jupiter-C as soon as possible.
Hoiaday asserted this country
has the same ability as the Soviet
Union to launch a large-size satel-
lite. It was at this point that he
disclosed the plans to send up a
half-tonner. Sputnik II, with its
dog aboard, was reported to have
weighed slightly more - 1,120
Edwin Weisl, committee counsel,
asked Holaday whether the United
States has a motor or motors with
enough thrust to lift a 1,000-pound

Regent Roscoe O. Bonisteel of
Ann Arbor noted that In estab-
lishing the Institute,,"we in no way
expect to lessen our progress and
efforts in other educational fields
such as the humanities.
'(We are here today adopting a
program to meet an imnediate
educational need in scientific fields
of knowledge-in the interests of
our national secuity and, we hope,
ultimate peace.""
Begin Work Immediately
President Hatcher said work?
would begin immediately -on the
Institute but declined to specifi-
cally state when it could get into
He indicated an operational bud-
ge't of about $2% million could be
expected. The state legislature will
be asked for basic funds to run
the Institute but business and in-
dustry, private individuals and the
federal government will also be
approached for financial support.
Goals Outlined
Specifically, the report outlines
five major goal for the Institute:
1) Serving as a center for
scientific And technological in-
struction, research and service at
the collegiate and post-graduate
level. It would be staffed by Uni-
versity faculty members and out-
standing new men who could be
attracted to the Institute.
2) Establishing and administer-
ing a system of scholarship grants
for graduate and undergraduate
students who desire to devote
themselves to teaching or to re-
search in the fields of technology
and science. This would be based
upon a most thorough and careful
search of the entire state.
3) Carrying on research in meth-
ods of increasing the effectiveness
and extent of scientific education
at all levels.
4) Co-operating with other edu-
cation institutions in the state,
both public and private, to en-
courage scientific and technologi,
cal research and instruction.
Scientific Cooperation Cited
Staff members and nationally
known scientists would be given
time from teaching duties to work
with high schools, other colleges
and universities and even elemen-
tary schools in an effort to stimu-
late and encourage interest in
careers in science.
5) Attempt to extend the co-
operation of business and industry
in furthering the purposes of the
Institute, especially as they relate
to future industrial and business
development in the state.
Early concentration is planned
in the areas of radio-astronomy,
computing, and data processing,
rocket and missile development,
nuclear physics, high temperature
metallurgy, biology of the living
cell and upper atmosphere re-

Group Urges
Trip to Moon
The Rocket and Satellite Re-
search Panel, which includes four
members of the University faculty,
has urged the government to work
toward expeditions to the moon.

A gallery of 200 persons viewed
a Japanese art treasure at the ar-
chitecture building.
What they saw was not balanced
on a pedestal, however. Nor was it
carefully preserved behind a bar-
rier of glass.
Instead, they saw a pair of
hands, nimbly going about the
task of creation.

Those hands belonged towToyo

foremost ceramists, who is visiting
the University this week as part of
a global tour. He fashioned sever-

Kaneshige pointed out that Jap-
anese culture is rich in tradition.
To keep that tradition alive, 'I
must capture the contemporary
spirit of art," he declared.
"In the past Japan was my lim-

"Now with communication and
transportation improvements, the
whole world is my environment
and I must travel to discover this
true contemporary spirit."
Kaneshige, 61 years old, was
born in Imbe, Japan, with 77 gen-
erations of pottery makers pre-
ceding him in his family.
Relates Father's Training
He said that his father never
taught him the craft, "I was al-

reflected. Kaneshige recalled how
