CULL,

GE ROUNDUP:

Illinois Plans Super Betatron;
Minnesota Rejects Riverboats

A super betratron capable of gen-
erating 400,000,000 electron volts--
four times more than any other be-
tatron in the world-will be con-
structed at the University of Illi-
nois this fall.
Prof. Donald W. Kerst of the phy-
sics department at the University of
Illinois invented the machine which
is expected to open up entirely new
fields of nuclear research, and to spur
further study of the creative, rather
than the destructive power of atomic
energy.
The University of Minnesota last
week turned down the Navy's offer of
U.S. Advocates
Economic Unity
,In Germany
BERLIN, July 20-UP)-The United
States bluntly advised the three other
occupying powers in Germany today
to join their zones in a single eco-
nomic unit or face a steady growth of
"creeping economic paralysis."
Acting on instructions from Wash-
ington, Gen. Joseph T. McNarney,
U.S. commander in Europe, placed
the ,proposal for a single economic
Germany before the four-power
Allied Control Council in an attempt
to break the long-standing deadlock
on the Reich's economic future.
But he warned that the United
States would find a merger with any
one zone preferable to the present
system of four air-tight compart-
ments and its noncomitant trade bar-
riers.
Reiterating the offer made by Sec-
retary of State James F. Byrnes to
the Paris Foreign Ministers Con-
ference, McNarney proposed .to join
his zone with any or all of the
others-French, Russian or Brit-
ish-to form an economic whole.
Then, in an unprecedented step,
the U.S. Military Governiment made
McNarney's . statement public im-
mediately-even while the Control
Council, closed to the press, still was
in session.
"The United States government
proposes this arrangement," Mc-
Narney told the Council in the 400-
word statement.

riverboat dormitories, while Purdue
University students rejoiced over
plans revealed Thursday for two new
dormitories-one to house 600 wo-
men students and the other to accom-
modate 600 men students. The "Pur-
due Exponent" reported that com-
pletion of the two new residence halls
would coincide with the peak of post-
war enrollment to be reached in Sep-
tember, 1947.
An emergency measure approved by
Purdue University Trustees will offer
freshman work in nine off-campus
University Centers. It is estimated
that 1,000 freshmen will be accom-
modated next September in the Cen-
ters nearest their homes.

A one-year graduate program in
law will be offered by the-Graduate
School of the University of Indiana
in September. The new program is
believed to be the country's only
graduate law course given in combin-
ation with schools of a university
other than the law school. Students
completing the course will receive a
Master's degree in law.
A new campus organization, the
University Village Cooperative Buy-
ing Club, began last week at the Uni-
versity of Minnesota,, and shows pro-
mise of giving a substantial stretch
to veterans' budgets. Married stu-
dent veterans and their wives have
joined in an effort to combat rising
prices by buying food in quantity lots.
James T. Farrell, author of "Studs
Lonigan," the Danny O'Neil series
and the recently-published "Ber-
nard Clare," is lecturing this week at
the University of Minnesota on the
"Social Obligations of the Novelist."
"The Summer Cardinal" of the
University of Wisconsin last week de-
voted a two-page spread to editorials
and letters of protest concerning the
death of OPA. Attendance at a
"stormy mass meeting of citizens,
students and veterans protesting the
Congressional action" was reported at
600.
Students at Michigan State College
in East Lansing are enjoying mixed
swimming this summer on Monday,
Wednesday and Friday evenings. The
"Wolverine," MSC's yearbook, is be-
ing distributed this week in a well-
heralded 50th anniversary edition.

Science Forum
"The Social Implications of Modern
Science" will be discussed over radio
station WPAG at 7:30 p.m. today
by Prof. Harold M. Dorr of the politi-
cal science department, Prof. Donald
G. Marquis, chairman of the psy-
chology department, and Prof. H. R.
Crane of the physics department.
The program is being presented
under the auspices of the Ann Arbor
Citizens Council.
Prof. Crane is at present engaged
in research the nature of which is
now made public for the first time.
He is building a large accelerator for
speeding up electrons to energies of
two hundred million volts. The pur-
pose of the research is to study the
fundamental constitution of matter.
It is an extension, Prof. Crane an-
nounced, of atom smashing activi-
ties. Prof. Crane organized the Uni-
versity's work on the proximity*fuse
in 1942, after spending a year in
Washington, D.C., as one of a small
group of men working on the same
subject.
Prof. Marquis was the director of
the Office of Psychological Personnel
of the National Research Council
during the war and was also execu-
tive head of the Office of Scientific
Research Development's Vision Con-
mittee..
Prof. Dorr has served as a mem-
ber of the local Selective Service
Board for the past three years and
is chairman of the administrative
committee which is directing the
University's Summer Lecture Series.
Judge Assails'
Lady Drivers
Jurist Calls Women
'Emotionally Unstable'
DETROIT, July 20-MP)-By as-
sailing women drivers this week Traf-
fic Judge John D. Watts merely
fanned the fires of a dispute which
through the years has shed more heat
than light.
Apparently unaware of the rever-
berations that would follow, the jur-
ist, after a trying drive to the office,
lashed out: women are "too emotion-
ally unstable" to be good drivers and
many are "incompetent to sit be-
hind the wheel of an automobile."
Whether Judge Watts could fall
back on the record to defend himself
against retaliation from the fairer
sex depends on what statistics are
used-and how. Also on what value
is placed on statistics.
But his hard-fo-women-to-take
remarks touched off a survey by the
Detroit Police Department's traffic
Safety Division, which revealed the
following:
The ratio of men to women drivers,
as checked at 60 of the city's busiest
intersections, was 10 to 1.
The ratio of men to women drivers
involved in accidents of all kinds dur-
ing the past six months was slightly
less than 10 to 1.

Dana Reports
On Forestry
Program Plans
Convention Outlines
Measures for Action
Dean Samuel T. Dana, of the
School of Forestry and Conservation,
returned last week from the Higgins
Lake conference of the committees
of the American Forestry Association
after serving as chairman of the
Committee on Timber Management
and Utilization.
The committees, made up of rep-
resentatives of public, private, and
educational institutions, have for-
mulated plans for a program to be
presented at the meeting of the As-
sociation in Washington, D.C., next
October.
Pointing to "a need for action,"
the group of experts concluded the
meeting by outlining "practical mea-
sures" to increase the rate of forest
growth and counter-balance "heavy
yields" from forest areas.
Recommendations of the group in-
clude:
1. A nationwide campaign to "en-
lighten all citizens to the importance
of forests and forest products" with
a view to bringing about "effective
forest management and utilization."
. 2. Expanded technical assistance to
owners of small forest properties and
to smaller basis wood using industries
"to improve their utilization prac-
tices."
3. Regulatory legislation to "assure
continued forest productivity."
4. Long-term forest credit and in-
surance to encourage adoption of
forest management practices "that
will result in continuous wood pro-
duction."
British Begin
Bread Rationing
Step Occurs on Labor
Government Birthday
LONDON, July .20-QP)-Just five
days before the British Labor gov-
ernment celebrates its first year of
unfettered, rule, it begins today to
Cation bread.
That drastic step-which the un-
restricted submarine blockades of
two world wars did not force-is a
sort of birthday yardstick to measure
the mixture of realism, idealism and
socialism with which the government
has met the turbulent transition from
war to peace..
Better living for the people, how-
ever, is still what the government
critics call "jam tomorrow." Food is
more tightly rationed than a year
ago, clothing coupons are still close-
ly restricted, and house building, al-
though moving ahead, is moving
slowly.
Demobilization and reconversion
have been carried along smoothly.
Nearly 2,500,000 men have been
mustered out of uniform into over-
alls, and unemployment has been held
so far under 400,000-less than two
per cent of the working population.
Revamping of the empire is under-
way, on a more or less successful
basis.

Liberal Arts
Honors To Be
Re-introduced
Program Stresses
Individual Interests
The College Honors Program ir
Liberal Arts, to be resumed this Fal
after an interruption caused by th
War, is an outgrowth of current in-
terest in improving education.
Some years ago a few faculty mem-
bers began to discuss the means by
which the existing facilities of a
state university might be used ir
programs designed to fulfill the aimE
of liberal education which were be-
coming obscured by the rapid growth
of specialized training. Accordingly
a program was devised to take the
place of the departmental concen-
tration program for those students of
proved ability who desired to study
within a broader program under close
personal supervision, and with more
opportunity for developing individual
interests.
The Program was established on
an experimental basis in 1939, and
selected students were assigned in
groups of from six to ten to a tutor
under whom they would be carrying
on their course of study for their
junior and senior years.
Related Reading Encouraged
Each group concentrated in the
study of a central subject but each
student also was encouraged to car-
ry on other reading in related mat-
ters. The subjects of each group were
chosen for their intrinsic importance
and interest and for the opportunities
they offered for disciplined study in
different fields of knowledge.
Such a subject as Labor, for ex-
ample, involved reading in history,
ethics and philosophy as well as in
economics. The group studying the
Renaissance read intensively in his-
torical documents as well as in the
philosophic, religious and scientific
literature of the period.
Similarly, students of literature
read widely in philosophical and.
ethical treatises and in religious and
scientific writing as well as in criti-
cism and in primary texts.
Analytical Reading Stressed
Emphasis has consistently been
placed upon the intensive reading
of important texts, and this reading
has been accompanied by frequent
written exercises in analysis and
criticism.
In the second semester of the
senior year each student writes a
long critical essay on some subject
growing out of the discussions of the
group meetings, and in this essay he
brings to bear the results of his two
years study. Comprehensive exam-
inations are also given at the end
of the senior year.
This coming Fall the Program will
be resumed, and initially three groups
will be formed; one for the study of
the Forms of Literature; one in
Ethics and Politics; and the third in
the Growth of Science.
Applications for the Program are
now being received by Associate Dean
Erich A. Walter, 1209 Angell Hall.
Only those students may apply who
will be beginning the junior year this
Fall, who have maintained a B aver-
age or better in their first two years,
and have fulfilled their Group Re-
quirements.
The dead-line for applications is
August 10, and applicants will be
notified of their acceptance into the
Program shortly after August 15.
