Astronauts Prepare;
For Space Travel,

TER, Va. W) - The Mercury As-
tronauts, after trying out for a
few seconds the weightlessness of
space travel, say it really is a"
comfortable feeling-infact, fun.
The seven lean young men who
have been picked for pioneering
space trips in United States satel-
lites two years hence expressed
their opinions after watching,
with a group of visiting newsmen,
a motion picture film of three of
them undergoing "zero gravity"
This occurred in the cabin of
an airplane fying part of an out-
side loop to produce the weight-
less condition through centrifugal
Float in Cabin
The Astronauts floated about
the padded cabin, pushing them-
selves off ceilings and walls, play-
fully shoving each other into the
air in what seemed slow-motion
It was similar to the floating
effect in skin diving - which the
Astronauts also have experienced
as part of their training.
The Astronauts' trainingyin-
cludes experience' in a variety of
weird and sometimes nerve and
muscle testing experiments.
Under Strain
They have undergone the stress'
of high "G" force at Johnsville,
Pa. There a centrifuge or whirl-
ing machine built up a force
equivalent to 25 times the weight
of the man.
That probably is a greater
weight than a man would ex-
perience in launching or atmos-
pheric re-entry in space flight.
Officials of lthe National Aero-
nautics and Space Administration
showed newsmen one of the
couch-like devices in which the
Astronauts will ride in the cap-
sule. An individual couch will be

molded from plastic to fit the
form of each man and help pro-
tect his body during acceleration,,
deceleration and landing impact.
See Preliminary Tests
Some, but probably not all of
the seven men will be given pre-
liminary test flights in a rocket-
launched capsule before the first
trip around the earth in orbit.
Army Redstone rockets will be
used to fire the man-carrying cap-
sule high into space in these tests,
with a landing in the Atlantic
several hundred miles off Cape
Canaveral, Fla.
Others will take off for orbital
flight aboard a capsule mounted.
on the Air Force Atlas intercon-
tinental ballistic missile.
Escape Device
Also shown were models of an
escape device intended for res-
cuing an Astronaut if - as has
been happening with some mis-
siles-the launching device starts
burning on the pad or takes off
too slowly.
This is a rocket which will
pluck the capsule clear of the mis-;
sile and carry it 2,000 feet high,
where an automatic parachute
will, pull the pilot out and drift
him backtoathe surface.
NASA- has ordered 26 booster
rockets for the "Project Mercury"
manned satellite program.
Atlas Dominates
-Of these, 10 are Atlas missiles,
the type to- be used for manned
satellite flight. Eight are Red-
stone rockets, to. be used both in
short flights by Astronauts and in
testing. Six others are the special-
ly designed "Little Joe" boosters
for 100-mile high test rshots of
equipment. Two are Army Jupiter
intermediate range ballistic mis-
However, it is probable NASA
will cancel plans for using the
Jupiter launcher.

of Johann Sebastian Bach will be
presented in two concerts at 3
p.m. and 8:30 p.m. Sunday in the

Fall Institute
The University will conduct an
Academic Year Counseling and

secondary school teachers and
counselors starting this fall.
Financed by the National De-
fense Education Act, the Institute
wil run from Sept. 14, 1959 to
June 11, 1960.
Prof. Stewart C. Huislander of
the education school has been
named director of the Institute.
Approximately 40 teachers and

PREPARING FOR TRIP-Olin Sewell Pettingill, well-known ornothologist, places an identification
band on one of the female Purple Martins at the University Biological Station near Pelston.
Pettingill, who is on the teaching staff at the station, is conducting experiments on "homing"
instincts. After banding, the birds are placed in cigar boxes for their trips to various midwestern
cities. Two birds released July 2 from Ann Arbor and Chicago both.have returned to the station.

"This is the story of illusion
and reality - of what you expect
and what, unfortunately, you get,"
says Neil Snortum about this
week's University television pre-
sentation in its "Accent" series
"Love Songs and Marriage Songs,"
to be seen at 9:15 Sunday.
Balladeer Snortum, an instruc-
tor in the English department,
will take his audience through the
various stages of romance begin-
ning first with a boy's ideal con-
ception of a girl as depicted in
the song "Colorado Trail."
The reality of marriage is not
so gay and light as that of love,
Snortum indicates. In fact, he
says, there are no happy marriage
songs. They all have a rather
scornful note.

"Hi-fi has made more people
interested in classical music, but
it is not teaching them to be in-
terested in music."
This statement is made by Thor
Johnson, noted American con-
ductor, as he appears on "Man
with a Baton," this week's Uni-
versity presentation in its "Un-
derstanding Our World" series, to
be seen at 9:30 am. Sunday.
According to Johnson, a com-
poser spends most of his life try-
ing to make a masterful blend of
the materials of music. Our mod-
ern engineers have come along
and taken that blend apart. Music
under the microscope is not how
we were intended to hear music.
Johnson discusses the methods,
problems, and rewards of con-
ducting in America today. He
cites the importance of the uni-
versity as a patron of serious mu-
sic, and he believes that while
most of our conductors today are
European trained, this will not
necessarily hold true for the fu-
"There is a revival of serious
music across our land," says
Johnson, "and out of this interest
in- music will come topflight

University Starts Hunt
For Dinosaur Funds

The University wants money to
purchase a dinosaur.
The Development Council and
Exhibit Museum are hunting for
some $2,000 to spend on the "bar-
gain": the remains of a meat-
eating dinosaur found recently in
northwestern Utah.
Bones of 19 of the dinosaurs
have already been uncovered in
an area 25 by 35 feet, near a
former water hole used by the
beasts 150 million years ago.
If the University can acquire a
25-foot Alloaurus and other dig-
gings available for $2,000, Ann
Arbor will have the best collec-
tion of dinosaur material between
Pittsburgh and Chicago, Museum
Director Irving G. Reimann said.
Five schools, including the Uni-
versity, have been invited to sup-

port the project and share find-
ings on a first come, first served
The University of Utah, which
found and excavated the original
dinosaur grave, plans to expand
its diggings to cover a 75 by 200
foot area.
Reimann said the cost is far
less than would be required for
the University to send its own ex-
pedition to the area, since addi-
tional funds would be needed to
'ship the bones and mount them
in Ann Arbor.
Persons or groups interested in
supporting the project may con-
tact Gilbert Bursley of the De-
velopment Council or Reimann.

ters at the University and than
work with three Michigan news-
papers for three months each.
Recipients of the University of
Michigan-University Press Club of
Michigan fellowships are Barrie
Zwicker, 24 years old, of Canada,
and Jaakko Bergqvist, 27 years
old, of Finland.
Each will receive about $4,500
for his period of stay. The two
were chosen from a panel of 12
candidates from countries
throughout the world.
The program gives foreign
journalists first-hand knowledge
of the United States, so that on
their return home, they may be
able to write about America with
greater insight and accuracy.

in fact he seldom writes legibly.
This criticism by Prof. Leonard
Zamiska of the art school is made
on this week's program in the
University television series on
"The Public Arts," to be seen on
"U of M Presents" at 1 p.m. Sun-
On "The Written Word," Za-
miska and series host Guy Palaz-
zola trace the significant steps in
the development of caligraphy -
beautiful hand writing and of
calligraphic type faces that .are
used on store fronts, in advertis-
ing design, in books, wherever the
word must speak to people.
Zamiska also blames the mod-
ernized versions of pens and pen-
cils for our poor writing because
these tools do not lend them-
selves to artistic writing.'
Using chisel-pointed and flex-
ible quill-pointed pens, Zamiska
letters the famous styles that
were historical landmarks in the
development of writing; Greek
Script, Roman Square Capitals,
Irish Uncial, German Gothic,
Chancery and Spenserian.
To show that beautiful writing
is easily learned, Zamiska teaches
a nine year old boy how' to letter

Prof. Sahlins says. This was how
internal order was kept.
As for external order, it was at
this time in the progress of man
that war first began. Due to the
invention of agriculture, food
could be stored and hunters re-
lieved to fight. As productivity in-
creased due to improved methods
of farmers, war developed from
raids to campaigns and conquests.
