.-i ' . - •- ■ ' ■ FLUORINE-tOMl ' OUND KESEARCH by Andy Stefani of the chemistry department. .MEASURING LOW-temperature properties of materials in strong magnetic fields. A DIAGRAM OF THE PROPOSED CYCLOTRON TED VIOLET measuring the ultra-violet spectrum of hydrogen in physics department ' s spectrometer. physics and chemistry A he physics department ' s major project at t j moment i.s con.struction of a cyclotron. Tliis machine will be built for the purpose of accelerating nuclear particles to be used in the study of scientific reactions. The cyclotron will be unique in that it will fill an information gap caused by the extensive atomic bomb study during World War II. It will be used in radio isotope production, physics, biology, medicine, and several other scientific areas. The University is providing the building while the Atomic Energy Commission pays for the machine. The department is also doing research in low-temp, residence, nuclear spectroscopy, electron iwlarization, and upper-air research. •hemistry department is working on severa government projects. It is attempting to develoi) monomers to create polymers for high and low temperature study in fluorine chemistry. Calorimetric studies of various compounds, uranium and organic fluorine-compound study is also being done. 92

I IKRS-BAL ' SCH TELESCOPE SOMMERS BlILDING niACRAMMINC; St NSPOTS sormnerS ' hausch observatory X he Sommers-Bausch Observatory, on the Uni- versity ' s Boulder campus, was built in 1951 as a research facility for faculty and students and as an educational facility for the public. The telescope was donated by the Bausch Lomb Optical Company of Denver and the building was a gift of the E. E. Sommers estate. The daily research data collected from the High Altitude and Sommers-Bausch observatories is prepared at this obsei-vatory and compiled in quarterly reports sent to research centers throughout the world. This observatory kept a flare patrol and was used as a radio communications center during the International Geophysical Year. 91

i OK. CKABB AND ONE OF HIS HAMSTERS CKABB INJECTING CANCER TISSUE biology JC dward Crabb, director of cancer research at Denison Laboratory, is conducting research on the functions and reactions of cells when a living organism is injected with different types of cancer. Hamsters are used in these experiments, and for some time these hamsters have been inbred in order to study the correlation between hereditary traits and cancerous cells. A search is not being conducted for a unique cancer cure ; rather, attempts are being made to learn the causes of cancer in order to aid basic research of this type. JLhe Institute of Arctic and Alpine Research, directed by John JIarr, was established in 1951 for the advancement of the study of arctic and alpine regions. The field headquarters are located at Science Lodge, 125 miles west of Boulder. A small mobile laboratory is currently parked at timl erline on Niwot Ridge and a small tundra is maintained on the same ridge. The program em- phasizes an ecological approach in which organisms and environmental factors, interacting as a dynamic whole, are the focal points. The study area is uniquely appropriate for this type of research because of climatic conditions. ARCTIC AND ALPINE research — (above) Mair and staff obtain soil samples; (below) staff gathering data for climatic research. 93
