Two Coeds To Use

Some unusual companions may
accompany two University coeds
on their dates Friday night.
The strange guests will be two
onions, products of a botany ex
periment being conducted by one
of the laboratories.
Four students in Wendell Gau
ger's botany laboratory, have been
provided with two onion bulbs, two
glasses of water, covered with
black cardboard and 12 small vials
of formalin acetic acid.
For 48 hours, Thursday and Fri
day, the students must cut off the
root tip of the onion bulb every
four hours and fixate it in the

HOW "WEASELS" REPLACE DOGS
TO UNLOCK ANTARCTICA'S SECRETS
ARE the mountains of Antarctica really
XV higher than Everest? Will its melting ice
eventually flood our cities? Do its frigid 200
mph winds create the world's weather? Do
its gigantic coal deposits mean there's gold,
oil, uranium too?
For 1 37 years men couldn't stay in Antarctica
long enough to find out. All they had were dogs
and courage. Today, machines do the muscle
work so teams of American scientists can stay
the year around to unlock Antarctica's secrets.
Jeep-like weasels use electronic "dish-pans"
(ste illustration) to probe for crevasss that
can swallow 20 -story buildings. Bulldozers
carve roads across frozen seas so giant trac
tors can haul in 60-ton supply loads.
It's all the result of Better-nesi the Ameri
can conviction that nothing's impossible.
And the machines that give you Better-ness
depend on Timken tapered roller bearings.
They roll the load and they're tapered to take
the crunching impact from all directions.
You'll find Timken bearings virtually elimi
nating friction, reducing' maintenance and
keeping machines on the go wherever Amer
ica's wheels and shafts turn. By pioneering
new markets and uses, we've become the
world's biggest manufacturer of tapered roller
bearings and we're still growing fast.
