The top honor books, selected
by the Chicago Book Clinic, are
now on display in the lobby on the
second floor of Love Library, and
will continue to be on display the
rest of the week, according to Ber
nard Kreissman, assistant director
of the library for the humanities.
The University is honored to be
the first to display the collection.
From here it will go throughout
the nation on tour.
The exhibit has been arranged
by the humanities division staff of
the Library, with exhibit materi
als supplied by private collections
as well as the University Art gal
leries. The exhibit is being held
partly in conjunction with the con
vention of the University Press di
rectors, now meeting in Lincoln.
The top honor books on display
are, in the opinion of the Chicago
Book Clinic, the "64 best" looks
produced in the Midwest last
year. Selection was made on the
basis of book design, topography,
paper, jacket design, cover make
up, illustrations and all other as
pects of the graphic arts as applied
to book production, although such
critia as good design with economy
and the suitability of the type to
text are also important factors, ac
cording to Kreissman.
Also included in the exhibit are
Uie books of commercial publish
ers private presses, house organs
and particularly a large sampling
of the work done by University
presses of the Mid-west.

Protests that liberalism ,re

by such philosophers as Bertrand
Russell, Morris Cohen and Joseph
Krutch, Dr. Saveile continued,
but he added that such protests
have been based chiefly upon
logic. "When", he asked, "has
the logic of philosophy prevailed
against the logic of events."
He said that the most powerful
evidence that the basic premises
of liberalism are still valid is to
be found in the science of biology.
He explained that all biologists

'Business and pleasure do mix..."
ROBERT H. WENTORF, JR., Ph J)., University of Wisconsin, 1951
"Until I joined General ifrectric's Research Labora
tory in 1951, I never realized science could be such
a challenge or so much fun. My job involves re
search in physical chemistry the investigation of
new ideas which can lead to new and better products
people can use. In a company of this Size, I have the
unique advantage of having the tools and facilities I
need and the experience of others close at hand. And
in return, of course. I'm expected to apply myself to
the best of my ability in each new job. As I see it,
if a big company like General Electric invests time,
money and faith in my creative ability, and if I re
spond by creating, then we both benefit. To me, at
General Electric business and pleasure do mix."
The achievements of 31-year-old Robert Wentorf
speak well of his ability to make the most of the op
portunities offered at General Electric. He recently
created borazon a completely new, diamond-hard
substance which promises far-reaching effect on in
dustrial processes and everyday living.
There are more than 27,000 college graduates at
General Electric. Each is provided the opportunity
for self-development in the hope that his creative
ability will bring forth new ideas. As General Electric
sees it, these new ideas, stemming from man's native
curiosity, will lead to the development of countless
products as yet undreamed of for our nation's defense,
industries, and homes.
A physica? chemist at General Electric conducts studies of tho
atomic structure of mattor, and of tho way atoms and molecules
interact under a wida variety of conditions.
