Prospects For Wide Usage
Of Atom Slight Says Webb
Dr. Webb

Prospects for the widespread use
of atomic energy for industrial purposes are very slight. Dr. William S.
Webb told an audience of bankers
meeting here last week for the third
annual Kentucky School of Banking.
Dr. Webb, head of the Department
of Physics, warned that the United
States cannot go on ' dissipating" its
reserves of oil, coal, and gas, expecting meanwhile that before those supplies are exhausted scientists will
have made atomic energy readily
available as a source of heat and
Uranium and other fissionable
materials exist only in relatively
small quantities, he said, and much
of the existing supply is unobtain
able. Even if governmental control
of the ores were lifted, Dr. Webb de
clared, the supply would remain in .
adequate for wide government use.
Instead of relying on future use of
atomic energy, the physicist urged,
the U.S. through its scientists should

Registration Retrospection
plan of issuing registration cards to students early has
ofli reel a relief to the traditional lalxrs of registration and classification lor students w ho attend the University regularly.
Put into practice last semester, the plan permits the student to
pick up the cards at specified and publicized hours near tlie end
of the semester in the basement of tlie Administration Building.
The student then fills the mass of cards out at leisure and is the
first one ready to go through the registration line the next semester.
li the student has a good filing system, tlie plan, as far as he
is concerned, is an improvement. Unless most of tlie students take
advantage of the idea however, the plan misses its purpose
of the time and expense involved in issuing the cards before
registration by the Office of the Hegistrar. Also the problem of
separating a small group of students wIkj got their cards early
at registration from those who didn't arises.
W hether the Office of the Registrar will continue the plan will
1k determined by the numlxr of students wlio pick the cards up
for the next few semesters, probably. That students will miss this
opportunity to speed registration up is not probable.
This present system however does not aid tlie new or the
periodical student OR eliminate the basic cause of tlie regular
students complaints: the numlxT and semesterly repetition of the
cards. In addition, since several of the groups soliciting information, the University Directory, for example, are not active in the
summer, the summer school student should not be required to fill
out their cards.
Perhaps a plan which would simplify these issues could be
devised by students or a student group. Since the logical organization, the Student Government Association, is not active in the
summer, perhaps any active summer group could handle it.
