ONE-MAN ‘COPTER UNDERGOES TESTS - A rocket-
powered, one-man helicopter, weighing less than 100 pounds, may
soon give a tremendous lift to the fighting man. Depicted above,
the desk-top-sized "pinwheel" would enable one man and special
armaments to climb faster than an airplane, and noiselessly float
or glide to earth. The self-starting, throttle-controlled contrivance
has fuel tanks in the tips of its two small rotor blades, leaves no

for the Navy, it is being tested near Los Angeles.
Builds New School
(B>! A**o< iatcd Pr*f)
Lexington, Ky. — A student-
operated weekly newspaper has
given the University of Kentucky
a gift valued at $400,000.
But to the many students and
advisors who have put the Ken-
tucky Kernel to press for over 26
years, it is a dream come true
which far exceeds the monetary
The gift is a new journalism-
publications building, ' dedicated
And it didn’t cost the univer-
sity, nor the residerftF of the

Bond* Covorod All Debt*
Half of the building’s construc-
tion cosL has been paid from ac-
cumulate^ profits of the student-
operated newspaper. Revenue
bonds covering the remainder of
the cost are to be retired from
future earnings of the paper.
From a modest beginning in
1924, when the Kentucky Kernel
purchased a new type-setter, the
student newspaper had amassed
a profit of $145,786.38 by June
The building of a printing plant
for the university first was en-
visioned 27 years ago by the late
Enoch Grehan; head of the De-
partment of oJurnalism until his
death in 1937.
Cost Compelled Action
Prior to 1924, the Kentucky
Kernel had been published through
the services of commercial print-
ers. High costs threatened the
continued publication of the news-
Prof. Grehan, determined not to
|pt the newspaper go under, pro-
posed that the student newspaper
purchase a type-setting machine
on a deferred payment plan, let-
ting earnings of the paper pay off
After considerable discussion
university approval was given and
Prof. Gerhan personally took re-
sponsibility. placing his signature
on a note for the $2,000 debt. This
was the beginning of the project.
Small Pras* Wa* Acquired
In 1925, a small two-page press
was purchased, further increasing
the indebtedness, but augmenting
the earning power of the news-
Slowly, piece by piece, year by
year, the plant expanded.
But the journalism department
and Kernel printing plant also
was plagued by
problem—the lack of space.
Officers of the school and plant
were shuffled from basement Id

The board of trustees last June
graduated the Department of
Journalism into a School of Jour-
All equipment and activities are
now assembled in one building for
the first time in the university’s
$2,000 Parlayed to $200,000
From the modest beginning of
$2,000 worth of equipment, thg
printing plant now is vealued at
approximately $200,000. All uni-
versity printing now is sent to
the campus plant.
The ground floor of the two-
story red brick structure houses
the printing plant plus the business
office and advertising office of
On the first floor is the recep-.
tion room, faculty offices, stor-
age and file rooms of the journa-
lism department, a seminar room,
reading room, typewriter labora-
tory, editorial room of the Kernel,
offices for the Kernel editor and
sports editor, anil editing lab class
room, a wire service room, news-
casting facilities, radio journalism
class room, bindery department,
and the central offices of the Ken-
tucky Press Association.
On the second floor are a typo-
graphy lab, advertising lab, five
classrooms, the office and editor-
ial room of The Kentuckian (uni-
versity yearbook), and the photo-
graphy department, which consists
of an office, studio, supply room,
repair roams, two lecture demon-
stration darkrooms, and six dark-
rooms for students.
Back in 1919, two graduates
composed the first journalism
class/ This fall, 215 are enrolled
I in the school. Many others are
taking journalism courses, hut not
as majors. Adding an international
flavor to the school this year are
nine German newspapermen at-
tending the university as exchange
In addition to students working
on the paper, the Kernel employs
a staff of approximately 20 per-
sons, including regular union lino-
About 340 tons of meal and
42.000 gallons of oil were pro-
duced as by-products of sealing
another serious lands in 1950.
