DOOLIE HATS?-These may look like giant coolie hats or huge inverted lily pads, but actually they
are the tops of ,three metal farm granaries protruding from floodwaters covering farmlands near
Triplett in north central Missouri. The Grand River, fed by heavy rains, has spilled over thousands of
acres, ruining some crops and damaging farm buildings.

60 Projects
Conducted
By Institute
Approximately 60 research pro-
jects valued at more than one and
two-tenths million dollars were
conducted by The University's In-
stitute for Social Research during
1957-58.
In his annual report to President
Harlan Hatcher, Institute Director
Rensis Likert noted that approxi-
mately 100 books, journal articles,
and miscellaneous research docu-
ments were added to the Insti-
tute's list of publications during
the year. Of these, five were major
books reporting specific research
projects and summarizing meth-
odological and theoretical ma-
terials.
Facilities Lacking
Several significant possibilities
for additional research were aban-
doned or postponed for lack of
facilities, Likert said.
As in past years, more than 90
per cent of the Institute's income
came from sources outside the Uni-
versity, about equally from private
organizations, research-supporting
foundations, and government
agencies.
Among the projects conducted
by the Institute for 1957-58 were:
The 13th annual "Survey of Con-
sumer Finances;" the use of bank-
ing services by business firms; ad-
ministrative and management
practices of 12 Michigan hospitals;
analysis of relations between job
satisfaction and general life ad-
justment; and analysis of political
behavior in the 1956 presidential
election.
Other Projects
Other projects included: Mental
health and illness in the adult
population; new nation-wide
studies on youth in 9 - 13 age
bracket; studies of delinquency;
the impact of social organization
on members of information and
communication teams; and as-
sessment of factors influencing
moral and ethical values of youth.
Conn To Give
Lyons Lecture
Dr. Jerome W. Conn, professor
of internal medicine at The Uni-
versity Medical Center, has been
selected to give the 1958 Chalmers
Lyons Memorial Lecture Aug. 1 at
the annual meeting of the Ameri-
can Society of Oral Surgeons in
Chicago.
Dr. Conn will sketch the rapid
advances made in recent years in
the field of endocrinology and
their significance for oral sur-
gery. Director of the University
division of endocrinology and
metabolism, Dr. Conn has spoken
widely to professional groups on
the effect of glandular secretions
on bodily function.
The annual memorial lecture
honors Dr. Chalmers H. Lyons, a
former professor of oral surgery
at the University.

Enrollment
Falls Below
Past Record
This year's summer enrollment
failed to top the previous record
for summer enrollment in graduate
school, Dean Ralph A. Sawyer of
the graduate school said yesterday.
Both the spring and fall semes-
ter enrollment set all-time records
both in campus and off-campus
units.
Higher standards of admission
for non-Michigan students were
imposed to keep enrollment within
the limits of the educational fa-
cilities, Dean Sawyer said.
The increase indicates, accord-
ing to Dean Sawyer, that an in-
crease in enrollment is to be ex-
pected which will be accented
"within a few years," even though
the "great wave of students has
not yet come through the under-
graduate colleges and entered the
graduate school."
Enrollment for the 1958 spring
semester exceedeI 5400. A total of
264 doctor's degrees and 1,636
master's degrees were conferred.
Fraternity Head
On Campus Today
Dr. Dorothy Veon of State Col-
lege, Pa., national president of
Delta Pi Epsilon, honorary fra-
ternity in business education, will
be on campus today.
A luncheon is being planned for
Dr. Veon with members of Kappa
Chapter of Delta Pi Epsilon.
There will be a coffee hour at
3 p.m. in Rm. 3021 University High
School.

THE HAWK - These are the first released Army pictures of the Hawk, a low flying, homing anti-air-
craft missile now being tested by the Army. In this sequence, the Hawk, alerted by radar, takes off
and homes in on a radio-controlled F-80 jet fighter over a southern New Mexico missile range. The
F-80 was destroyed by a direct hit. Sequence shows Hawk firing, approaching and destroying plane.

Investigation
Techniques
Streanlined
Ultra minute quantities of ele-
ments-sometimes one-fifth part
per billion-can be detected in
meteorites with facilities of the
Michigan Memorial-Phoenix Pro-
ject at the University.
Information thus gained is add-
ing to the fund of knowledge on
how elements were built up in the
formation of the universe.
The technique utilizes the pro-
ject's Ford Nuclear Reactor, most
powerful at any educational in-
stitution, and a pneumatic tube
system which enables a powdered
sample of a meteorite to be ex-
posed to intense radiation and
then returned seconds later to the
fingertips of the chemist making
the analysis.
Quantities Too Small
The quantities of elements such
as rhodium, silver and indium are
so small they cannot be detected
by "old-fashioned" s t a n d a r d
chemical means alone, since the
presence of equally small amounts
of the elements in the supposedly
pure test chemicals invalidate the
results.
Prof. W. Wayne Meinke of the
chemistry department reports that
exposure of a meteorite sample to
nuclear r a d i a t i o n makes the
sample radioactive. Then, when
the element being investigated is
isolated from all others by chemi-
cal means, the amount of the
element present can be measured
by instruments sensitive to radio-
activity, even if the chemicals
used in the isolation process have
added an additional quantity of
the element.
Test Speed Increased
The radiation technique has re-
duced the time necessary to make
such tests from hours or days to
15 to 30 minutes, as well as in-
creasing their accuracy and sen-
sitivity.
Such high speed handling has
enabled scientists to measure more
easily elements with very short
half-lives - the time it takes for
one-half the volume of an element
to decompose, and lose its radio-
activity. Some elements have
half-lives of just a few seconds or
minutes, which leaves little time
for analysis.
Returned in Three Seconds
The pneumatic tube system re-
turns the sample in three seconds
after it has been exposed to ra-
diation in the reactor for two to
three times the length of half-
life.
The Phoenix Project was begun
10 years agoas a memorial to stu-
dents and faculty members killed
in World War II and is dedicated
to finding peacetime uses of
atomic energy. A campus-wide ac-
tivity, it has attracted interna-
tional attention for its diversity
and uniqueness.

U.S. BUSINESS IN EUROPE:
Four Professors Study
Legal Problems Abroad

Legal problems confronting
American business firms in the
European economic community are
being studied by four University
law professors.
Eric Stein, professor of interna-
tional law and international or-
ganization, and Alfred F. Conard,
professor of business organization
law, are now in Europe collecting
information and opinions for the
project.
L. Hart Wright, professor of
taxation, will go to Europe in Sep-
tember, and Alan N. Polasky, pro-
fessor of taxation, will probably
arrange to visit Europe during the
course of the school year. Several
papers also will be prepared by
European scholars.
Financed by Endowment
Their research is financed pri-
marily by the William W. Cook
Endowment, but is also aided by a
Ford Foundation grant to the law
school for international legal
studies, according to Prof. Allan
F. Smith, director of research for
the school.-
The central theme of the proj-
ect is the effects of the develop-
ment of a unified Europe on
Aierican businessmen's legal
problems. The European Economic
Community with its "common
market" is in the forefront of the
unification movement, which has
as its ultimate objective the for-
mation of a United States of Eu-
rope.

petition, patents and other Ihtan-
gible rights, labor relations and
labor standards, taxation of Amer-
ican enterprises, evolution of tar-
iffs and quotas, foreign exchange
regulations, and public relations
of American enterprises in Europe.
