Reporter Makes Like Spaceman, Takes Joy-Ride in SC Centrifuge By JOE SALTZMAX A six cylinder Dodge truck engine and a gigantic Walt Disney-like centrifuge complete with television cameras and receivers are the everyday tools of Dr. John P. Meehan, Howard Jacobs, Richard C. Kaehler and six SC student volunteers. And to this reporter, a ’‘ride" on this mechanical creature was nothing less than a trip with Flash Gordon through Buck Rogers land. The centrifuge project, headed by Dr. Meehan, associate professor of physiology, enables tests to be made concerning; the problems of acceleration and deceleration so that handbook information for the U.S. Air Force can be comDiled and distributed. The centrifuge is housed behind the Science Building. According to Kaehler, engineering psychologist and directly responsible for human performance tests, the 23-foot. radius centrifuge was built in 1942 by the Navy. As the huge machine is turned on, it begins to whirl at high rotational speeds thus increasing centrifugal acceleration. This acceleration is measured in “G's,”—gravitational *u n i t s of acceleration or 32.2 feet per second squared—and the practical limit of the human performance experiment is about 6 G's (33 revolutions per minute). able of measuring 1 100 of a second time intervals. With this technical knowledge, I was slowly strapped into the tight confinement of the centrifuge seat and two I restraining straps, one around by stomach, the other I around by chest, held me in place. A “lap” switch was tied to my leg and the lights on ' the console in front of me lit up like an electronic switchboard during its busiest hour. The series of steel controls—wheel, knob, lever, toggle switch and button—continued to click as they were touched. letting the clock recorder note the different times of many reactions done by the individual taking the ’•flight.” I reluctantly realized that I was now that individual.

The ASSC Senate Wednesday declared Gayle Moss the new Independent Women's Representative winding up nearly a monthlong discussion concerning her eligibility. Lillian Kim. the present IWC Representative, had maintained since last March’s elections that Miss Moss was not eligible for the office. “According to the IWC constitution.'' Miss Kim said, "a candidate for IWC Representative must have been on the IWC council for a year before her election. My records, however, show no record of her attendance at meetings or ot a payment of dues.” Sworn Affidav its Two sworn affidavits were brought before the Senate bv Miss Moss from former members of the council which stated that she had been a member for at least a year, however. The Senate questioned whether the university’s independent women would be capably represented if the office was left vacant until next year and decided to ratifv Miss Moss for the office with only Independent Men's Representative Stan Arkin dissenting.
