This might be a good thing
for some of our political en
thusiasts to take heed of. Once
a robin was very hungry. He
circled all the Isle of Capri and
finally saw an open-air bologna-meat
market. He dived down
and speared some bologna,
which be ate. Then he soomed
right up onto the branch of a
tree and started to whistle and
sing to the full extent of his
lungs. You could hear him for
blocks around. A man with a
gun heard him, took aim and
shot the little bird. The moral
of the story
Is: "When

energies of radioactive particles
when they bombard other atoms.
The Van De Graaf Electro
static Generator is a research
instrument and a gun which
shoots atomic particles. A much
larger machine, several stories
high, produces millions of volts
for charging atoms and using
them to smash others. The ma
chine was tested by one volun
teer, Charles Huestis, who said
it felt like an ordinary electric
shock. The electricity which
passed through his body was a
quarter of a million volts, but
the amperage was too low to
cause injury.
Another exhibit, a machine for
making dimes radioactive, is like
a full scale atomic pile or nu
clear reactor in that it actually
creates isotopes by neutron bom
bardment. The dime remains ra
dioactive about four minutes.
One exhibit shows how radio
isotopes are used in medicine.
Two main uses are: (1) They
provide radiation treatments
similar to radium and x-ray
treatments and (2) They can be
detected by Geiger counters, and
thus used as "tracers" to study
body functions.
One model indicates how atomic

as a fuel. It shows the compari-:1"3'

One exhibit section is devoted
to the study of atomic energy
uses in agriculture. It shows the
path of fertilizer from the soil
into the plant
Several pictures of plants lo
cated in the United States are
shown. Included are the gaseous
diffusion plant at Oak Ridge
called "K-25" and the plutoniuir.

Opening Meeting Features
Address By Dean Colbert
Dr. J. P. Colbert, Dean of Student Affairs, spoke on
"The Challenge of Leadership" Monday at 5 p.m. in Ellen
Smith Hall. The occasion was
hellenic Workshop Week.
In Grandma's day, society s
pictures of a perfect lady was
summed up eloquently in a
jingle he remembered from his
childhood days, Colbert said.
It went:
"Curly locks, curly locks,
Wilt thou be mine?
Thou shalt not wash the dishes.
Nor yet feed the swine;
But sit on a cushion.
And sew a fine seam,
And feast upon strawberries,
sugar, and cream."
Since then, he said, there has
been a great change. Now mod
ern woman stands shoulder to
shoulder with modern man in so
ciety. This is a change for the
good if women are willing to ac
cept the challenge of leadership,
he added.
"Immediately after graduation,"
he continued, "Women can find
a place for leadership in Cham
bers of Commerce and various
service clubs.
"After marriage, when she has
a family and home to care for,"
Colbert went on, "a woman finds
leadership outside the home in
PTA's, church, YWCA and Girl
Women, asserted the Dean,
can handle detail better than
men. He knows this from per
sonal experience. For instance,
he depends upon his wife for
much of his civic and Univer
sity faculty contacts and ac
quaintances, Colbert said.
Without women as the civiliz
ing factor in society, he added
as an afterthought, he would
still be in the caveman days.
"In college life, through sorori
ties," he said, "there is an ex.
cellent opportunity to begin lead,
ership. This is done through ac
cepting the challenge of leadership
as a matter of course. And the
best place to accept that chal
lenge is in college activities. But
the challenge should be accepted
in the individual's own way."
There is too much emphasis
on the phrase that college is
preparation for life, Colbert
stated. On the contrary, he said,
college is a part of life, and

Auden received his education

the next six years he taught
school, then realizing his true
vocation to be that of poetry
he began his writing career. He
became known as the most

of English poets.
