Home-School Community

Research projects on the econ-
omy of Communist China, the
ability of fish to determine water
temperature and the effect of
waves on objects of various shapes
are among those to be conducted
this year at the University under
grants from the Horace H. Rack-
ham School of Graduate Studies.
A total of $92,704 has been al-
located for the 51 projects, Dean
Ralph A. Sawyer has announced.
Twenty-six will be financed by
the Rackham Fund and 25 from
the Faculty Research Fund.
Workers Walk
Out of Jobs
DETROIT (R-Some 400 employ-
As, a skeleton force, walked off
their jobs yesterday at the Kelvin-
ator plant in Detroit.
Officials of Local 9, Mechanics
Educational Society of America
told American Motors Corporation
officials that they had ordered the
skeleton crew off their jobs.
The strike was apparently over
the Kelvinator Division's action to
move home freezer and ice cream
cabinet production to the Grand
Rapids plant. The company an-
nounced that decision Friday and
said the plant would close down
until Aug. '30.

Eleven are continuations of
previous grants from both sources.
Chinese ,Economy
Prof. Charles F. Remer, of the
economics department heads the
survey of Chinese economy.
He will explore such phases as
trade within the Communist bloc,
assistance from Russia, and whe-
ther the Chinese can bring about
satisfactory- economic development
without aid from and relations
with non-Communist countries.
Information on Chinese econo-
my is available from the state de-
partment, non-Communist sour-
ces in Hong Kong and Taiwan,
Japan, Great Britain, Western
Europe and other areas, accord-
ing to Prof. Remer. Some is al-
ready in the University Library.
In his research on the temper-
ature sense of fish, Prof. John E.
Bardach, of the fisheries depart-
ment, will first train goldfish to
respond to touches of heat.
He hopes to find inthe most
sensitive areas clues of the mech-
anism by which fish detect tem-
perature changes in water.
Prof. Ernest F. Brater, professor
of hydraulic engineering, will uti-
lize the facilities of the Lake Hy-
draulics Laboratory at Willow Run
in his study of water waves strik-
ing objects.
He feels the results of his re-
search will be applicable to the
design of conventional civilian
and military waterfront structures
and will be especially valuable in
the design of off-shore structures.

DRIVER ESCAPES-A 38-year-old driver of this truck narrowly escaped death over the weekend
when his loaded semi-trailer went out of control in Ann Arbor because of broken brakes. The
truck hit a car, then snapped off a tree as the driver tried to avoid hitting a road repair crew. The
driver, Marion Truman of Mendon, was hospitalized at Univerisity Hospital where doctors said he

Williams Calls I
Special Session
Of Legislature
Asks Ionia Prisoi 1
Barracks Building
LANSING (A)-The State Leg-
islature yesterday was called to
meet Aug. 18 in a special session
to consider an emergency addition
to Michigan's prison facilities.
Governor G. Mennen Williams,
who, rebuffed in an attempt to
get the "Little Legislature" to sup-
ply the money last week, said he
would again ask for a 150-man
barracks at Ionia State Reforma-
Ii contrast to last week, how-
ever, the Governor said he would
ask that the dormitory be split
into individual cubicles. For this
reason, he said, the original esti-
mated $225,000 cost will have to,
be increased.
Authority Squabble
Last week, the emergency ap-
propriations commission, or "Lit-
tle Legislature," contended it did
not have authority to release the
money. Its leaders urged Governor
Williams to call the full Legisla-
The Legislators who are mem-
bers of the "Little Legislature",
also objected to building a dormi-*
tory without individual cubicles
after hearing Warden Garrett
Heyns of the reformatory assert
that open type dormitories in-
crease sexual perversion.
In a formal statement, Gover-
nor Williams said: "During the
last week, I have carefully weigh-
ed the matter, and it is evident
that we can not safely wait for
the 1955 session of the Legisla-
ture to act. We now have more
than 9,450 inmates, and by Janu-
ary we may have close to 10,000 in
a prison system designed to hold
safely less than 8,600.
No Maximum Set
On Judge Salaries
LANSING (P-Legislative at-
tempts to set a $22,500 maximum
salary for circuit judges were nul-
lified yesterday by an Attorney
General's opinion.
Atty. Gen. Frank G. Millard
held that the State may not re-
duce its share of judges' salaries
if the combined State and County
salary exceeds the maximum,
The 1954 Legislature raised cir-
cuit judges' state salaries from
$9,000 a year to $12,500 a year.

tion to make them as simple as
possible," he explained.
Mosaic Book
Called a mosaic book, it utilizes
1144 different authors' quotes. A
mosaic book, Onderdonk explained
is one which uses many pertinent
quotes that present the truths so
beautifully that they could not be
expressed in any better way, and
yet also contains the author's flow
of thoughts.
"Man increases his own happi-
ness in the same degrees, as he
procures it for others," is a state-
ment made by Jeemy Bentham,
which provides the basis of Onder-
donk's book and philosophy.
"Studies have shown that the
amount of income and happiness
have very little relations," Onder-
donk pointed out.
"The majority of people are un-
happy because they are impris-
oned in themselves," he continued.
The idea that the self is a prison
is thousands of years old, he ex-
plained. "Selfitus" is a word On-
derdonk coined to describe this in
his book.
To escape themselves, people
must find causes, he said. "The
important thing," he pointed out,
"is not the cause itself, but wheth-
er the person himself believes
that cause to be worthwhile."
"The more 'alive' a person is
and the less distorted his perspec-
tive is, the happier he will be."
People like Gandi and Tostoy were
the most alive, he feels.
Vegetarian, Tolstoyian
A Tolstoyian, Onderdonk is a
vegetarian, belives in world peace
and Esperanto. While at the Uni-
versity he was head of the Tolstoy
Leaguerand taught Esperanto.
A Brooklynite by birth, Onder-
donk went to Vienna as a boy and
lived there for about 20 years. He
received his degree from the Roy-
al and Imperial Institute of Tech-
nology in Vienna.
The main purpose of the kook
is to make people recognize these
basic truths. Ultimately he hopes
that Hollywood will make short
movies that would clearly drama-
tize the truths.
Comprised of sixty chapters, the
book includes many pictures and
newspaper stories that illustrates
his points. At present Onderdonk
is trying to condense the book.

Out-and-out elegance for evenings out! I
