Dr. A E. Caswell Returns
To Physics Department
His work completed in the development of radar, Dr. A. E.
Caswell, head of the physics department, is back on the campus
after 39 months' absence. Dr. Caswell worked from June 1942
until August 1945 in the radiation laboratory at the Massachu
setts Institute of Technology in Cambridge, where he partici
pa ted in a radar project, lhe tirsi
two months of his job was in
secret developmental work. He
then was shifted to the division
which prepared iiistrufction books
on operation and maintenance of
“crash” radar sets.
“We compiled handbooks." Dr.
Caswell said on his return “on
nearly all the important sets built.
One of the sets compiled by the
radiation lab and for which we
supplied the instruction book was
one which made it possible to
bomb Germany day and night for
#ix days a week, when before it
was feasible to do precision bomb
ing maybe one day a week.
Radar, he explained, enables the
pilot to make exact location of his
target in spite of smoke or clouds.
It also shows him when to drop
Ids bombs in order to hit the
target squarely.
i Many Workers
During the peak work at M.T.T.,
there were 3800 civilian and 1200
military personnel. About 80 per
cent of all the original work done
< n radar, the psysicist said, was
done at M.I.T. and 00 per cent of
the development has taken place
As for peacetime applications.
Dr. Caswell believes that radar
should be compulsory on all com
mercial passenger planes and un
doubtedly all the larger airports
will have it for landing purposes.
There is a possibility of using
iadar on fishing crafts to chart
the shore lines and avoid accidents.
Dr. Caswell satd that he intend
ed to use his knowledge of radar
in teaching as soon as the govern
ment released the information.
Some parts of radar information
have been released and can prob
ably be used in the classroom, but
ottder developments will not be
given out until later or possibly
not at all.
Dr. Caswell has been on the Uni
versity faculty most of the time
since 1913. During his last two
years at he was chief of
his section.
Ore-nters Distributed
For the second year, the Ore
nter, a handbook answering many
questions on and giving informa
tion on University life, is being'

versity. Also included are degree
and honorary society require
ments,, the ASUO constitution and
by-laws, where to go in Eugene
and on the campus, tips on dress

Beeson, Elizabeth Gilmore, Caro
lyn Jacobs, Dorothy Habel, Gloria
Grenfell. Margaret Metcalf, Bar

Museum Buys
Bird Collection
Purchase of a rare collection of
Oregon birds, eggs and nests,
owned by Dr. A. G. Prill, Scio, for
the University of Oregon Museum
of Natural History has been an
nounced by President Harry K.
The collection, of particular in
terest because* it contains many
varieties of birds now extinct, was
gathered over a period of many
years by Dr. Prill and has been
completely catalogued. It includes
approximately 1600 bird skins and
sixty-four mounted birds in addi
tion to 1875 sets of Oregon bird
eggs, 300 foreign sets, and 200
bird nests. The collection also con
tains an extensive library on birds
and many photographs, some of
which are colored.
Dr. Prill has listed among the
specimens of unusual interest the
little yellow rail, first and only on
record in Oregon; black swift, first
Oregon record; great gray owl, the
largest of the specie; Harris spar
row, an eastern bird, third on Ore
gon record; Oregon ringed pheas
ant, two western robins, and one
Brewers sparrow, all albinos.”
Dr. Prill gave a similar collec
tion to the University a number of
years ago, which with this later
group makes an invaluable source
of study material for students and
