Dr. Udo Wile
Retires Today
At Age of 65
Regents Commend
Service to Medicine
Dr. Udo J. Wile, member of the
faculty since 1912, will retire to-
day with the title of professor
emeritus of dermatology and
Dr. Wile is retiring on his 65th
birthday at his own request. His
35 years on the faculty were in-
terrupted only by periods of mil-
itary service during World War I
and II.
Regents Express Appreciation
The University Board of Re-
gents accepted Dr. Wile's request
for retirement with regret and
adopted a resolution expressing
"deep appreciation of the serv-
ice he has rendered to the na-
tion, to the profession of medi-
cine and to this University of
Michigan throughout his distin-
guished career."
Commenting upon Dr. Wile's re-
tirement, Dean Albert C. Fursten-
berg, of theMedical School, said,
Dr. Wiley has won distinction for
his research work and has been
a recognized leader in the field of
dermatology. Dr. Wile was form-
er president of the American
Dermatological Association. He
is also a member of the American
Medical Association and a form-
er president of the Washtenaw
County Medical Society.
Graduate of Johns Hopkins
Dr. Wile was born in New York
City in 1882 and received his
Bachelor of Arts degree from Co-
lumbia University in 1904 and his
Doctor of Medicine from Johns
Hopkins Medical School in 1907.
He was an instructor at the
New York Post Graduate Medical
School from 1908 to 1912 when
he came to the University. During
the First World War, lie served in
the Medical Corps in France and
England. During the last war, he
was with the United States Pub-
lic Health Service and the Mar-
ine Hospital Service from 1941
to 1945, holding the rank of col-
Roth Reveals
New Additions
To Motor Pool
The Facilities of the University
motor pool have been augmented
by two new, pusher-type buses
capable of seating 29 persons in
reclining plush seats, as well as
six more persons on aisle seats,
Walter Roth, superintendent of
the Plant Department disclosed
These gold and blue cruisers
with stainless steel sideboards,
purchased for the primary pur-
pose of supplementing veteran ed-
ucation, will be used for special
trips. The addition of the two
buses has raised to 3 the total
number of vehicles available for
field trips and the Willow Village
bus service.
These buses are at the disposal
of any department wishing to
make a field trip, and in the last
school year accommodated approx-
imately 30,000 passengers. The
majority of the buses in the mo-
tor pool, however, are used to pro-
vied transportation to and from
Willow Village for the approxi-
mate 3,000 students, and their
families, living there. Last year
871,248 persons made the trip.
Among the remaining vehicles
at the motor pool are 35 auto-

mobiles and 40 trucks. The form-
er are requisitioned out to faculty
members for extension lectures
and inspection trips, and for oth-
er official business.

wooden shack back of the ROTC
Building and photometrics in the
mold loft on the third floor of
West Engineering.
The aeronautical department
has not been much better off.
Since 1924 the department has oc-
cupied the basement of the East
Engineering Building. At that
time a wind tunnel was installed
and several rooms originally de-
signed for storage were converted
into classrooms and laboratories.
Much of this space has been un-
usable since construction of the
new wing was started. The de-
partment is now in temporary of-
fices in the lobby of East Engi-
neering Building. Two members
operate from windowless basement
rooms with no ventilation.
When the new building is com-
pleted, the electrical department
will have room for three alternat-
ing and two direct current dyna-
'mo laboratories in the basement,
and the aeronautical department
will set up a structures laboratory.
Most of the first floor will be
reserved for classrooms and offi-
ces, an instrument laboratory, and
a vibration laboratory for the aer-
onautical engineers. The electri-
cal engineers will take over the
second and third floors, with the
third devoted almost entirely to
electronics and communication.
Both departments will have
space on the fourth floor. Elec-
Rouse To 'Talk
On Mechanics
Two lectures by Prof Hunter
Rouse, director of Iowa State Uni-
versity's Institute of Hydraulic
Research, to be given at 4 p.m. to-
day and at 10 a.m. tomorrow in
Room 445 West Engineering, will
cohclude the summer symposium
on fluid mechanics.
The symposium, sponsored by
the Department of Engineering
Mechanics, will wind up with an
appraisal by Prof. Rouse of the
wartime findings at the Institute.
These findings cover the fields of
both liquid and gas flows and
proved of aid in the wartime is-
suance of fundamental data in
fields ranging from meteorology
to naval architecture.

tronic laboratories will be grouped
with two aerodynamic labora-
tories, a design room and a pro-
pulsion laboratory for the aero-
nautical department. The depart-
ments will also share about 20
classrooms at the front of the
Completion of the addition to
East Engineering will undoubted-
ly mean a lot to the engineering
students on campus. But it will
mean even more to the depart-
ment heads who may be able to
wangle an office they can call
their own and the instructors
looking for someplace to hang
their hats.

Alumnus Speaks
On Pastoral Care

alumnus of the University and ex-
ecutive director of the Institute of
Pastoral Care, will deliver lec-
tures to the students in the six-
week pastoral care course at Uni-
versity Hospital this week.

from the University in 1933 and'
at that time was the president of

legislative representative David
Lloyd explained to me . That in-
formation has ranged from ex-
posing the power lobby's attempt
to exempt natural gas companies
from the control of the Federal
Power Commission, to publishing
the first analyses of the effects of
the Taft-Hartley Bill and the
rights of tenants under the Rent
More recently, a committee
headed by Chester Bowles issued
a Report on Economic Stability,
New Dealish in character, which
presented to the President and
Congress, and to the public, ADA's
positive nine point program for
avoiding the next depression.
Ultimately however, A D A's
members realize that their effect-
iveness depends upon influencing
the Congressional elections. To
that end all but one district in
Detroit are now being organized,
I learned.
"Most of the liberal members of
Congress are in the Democratic
Party and come from themarginal
districts where the race is close,"
according to Biemiller.
Shrewd Campaigner
A shrewd and experienced cam-
paigner, he is insistent about the
need for building precinct, ward,
and county organizations. The
difficulty here, the ADA spokes-
man was quick to point out, is
that the Republicans (who spent
nearly twice as much as the Dem-
ocrats in the 1944 election) "have
a mostly paid organization while
the liberals must necessarily de-
pend upon volunteer workers."
"The other side has the big
campaign contributors, the influ-
ential newspapers, and the busi-
ness community; we must organ-
ize the liberals," Biemiller de-
clares. Convinced that the coun-
try is basically liberal, his goal
is a heavy vote, particularly in
the primaries.
Can an extensive liberal pre-
cinct organization have much ef-
fect upon the 1948 election?
Biemiller smiled at thesquestion.
"A shift of just two votes in each
precinct would have defeated Sen-
ator Taftin1944"' he assured me.
