The New Orleans Item has
termed a former University stu
dent, "one of America's most pol
ished disk-jockeys." The article
was referring to John Barrett of
WTK radio station who managed
the University radio KNUS in 1950
and 1951. "The Johnny Barrett
Show" is one of New Orlean's top
rated disk shows. The nation's top
disk show is Dick Martin according
to a vote by the show business
A group of six volunteers are
acting as human guinea pigs in
a home economics study. The girls
have three complete meals com
posed mostly of liquid and wafer
forms with all the days nutrients.
This staff of seven home econom
ics volunteer students is continu
ing the previous years study on the
Nutritional Status of Women and
the Utilization of Amino Acids from
food. Headed by Dr. Helen Links
weller, the study is now in its
sixteenth day of a fifty day run.
A typical days breakfast menu
includes amino acids, sugar, waf
ers, oils, lemon and orange juice,
jelly, butter, syrup and non-caffine
coffee. The lunch menu closely
follows the pattern of the break
fast menu with the addition of pudd
ing, applesauce, multiple vitamin
supplement, vitamins A and D,
seven-op and mints. The dinner
is identical to lunch with peaches
Each girl's food intake is meas
ured to her body requirements.
Food requirement is so essential
that bad table manners are over
looked. Each girl must lick
each plate as she finishes her meat
Sally Steinauer, volunteer work
er says, "It is a wonderful feeling
being able to help. We seldom get
hungry and tbe food trays are
very cleverly decorated."
Tbe past sixteen days are only
a fractional part of this intense
study. Weeks of preparation pre
ceded thb year's work and included
training periods and the ordering
of foods and amino acids.
Tbe problem of the quantity of
tbe acids was simplified by Dr
Ruth Leverton, of Oklahoma, who
found the requirements and has
published four of the essential
eight. Tbe emphasis, this year is
put ta Valine, on of the essen
tials found in com and corn meaL

Activities at the California Division of Lockheed Aircraft
Corporation cover virtually every phase of aeronautical endeavor.
A total of 45 major projects is in progress.
The expanding development and production program has
already resulted in 13 models of aircraft now on production
lines -huge airliners, commercial and military cargo
transports, extremely high-speed fighters, jet trainers, radar
search planes and patrol bombers.
Development projects are even more diversified, include
nuclear applications to aircraft, turbo-prop and jet transports,
advanced versions of vertical-rising aircraft and a number
of other significant classified projects.
This capacity to develop and produce such a wide range of
aircraft is important to career-conscious engineers. It means more
scope for your ability, more opportunity for promotion with
so many projects constantly in motion, more job
security -because your career is not restricted to one type of plane.
