It is the first time that an NSF Undergraduate Research Participation grant has been awarded For research in biology at Williams. Similar grants for research in psychology by two students were awarded by NSF both this year and in 1962. Four Biologists The four student biologists are George Cooper IV of Charlottes ville, Va., Frederic Kiechel of Auburn, Neb., and John B. Winfield of Fairfax, Va., alt seniors; and S. Donald Zaentz of Clifton, -J. J., a graduate student. Cooper is working on the physiology and endrocrinology of the land-to-water transition of salamanders. Kiechel is investigating thyroid activity in native small mammals. Winfield is studying the earliest stages of mesoderm formation in the embriologi- caJ development of mutant mice, both normal and lethal. Zaentz is investigating the effect of epine- plirine on blood glucose levels in Ihe leopard frog. Dr. William C. Grant, chairman of the department of biology 38 and director of the project, said selection of the four was hasec on several criteria, the most important being demonstrated abili- .y and motivation to do independent work. Creative Values Dr. Grant said that it is important, particularly in the case rf a liberal arts college like Wil [jams, that at least some students become involved in the crealive values of independent research. "The NSF Undergraduate Re search Participation program al lows undergraduates of high ability to pursue a problem in depth unhampered by the usual demands of classwork," Dr. Grant pointed out. "Working under the supervision of staff members who themselves are active in research, the student participates in the planning and final analysis of the data of his project. If, the results warrant it, he is asked to work with his adviser in the presentation of a paper before one of the professional societies." Office: 19 Spring St. T«l.

Winfietd of Fairfax, Va.; and S. bonald Zaentz of Clifton, N. J. Second Town Well Shut Down To Check Overflow The flow of water from the second town well on Stetson Road has been shut down to see wheth- the water from an underground stratum will overflow. Water Supt. Charles Notsley. reported that an engineer with Camp, Dresser & McKe«, the town's consulting engineers, has advised him to shut off the two- inch relief valve running from the well. The engineers will then wait a week to see if the overflow reoccurs, he said. Since the well is artesian, the pressure should build up when the flow of water from it is shut off so that the leak should reappear then if it ever does, Mr. Notsley observed. The R. E. Chapman Co. of Oakdale, well drillers, returned to the well site last month la seal the well by pumping grout, a mixture of cement and water, down it to form a seal and prevent the flow of water to the surface. North Adams Juvenile Fined for Passing A North Adams juvenile was fined $10 when he admitted a passing violation before Special Justice Henry W. Kaliss in Juvenile Court this morning. The youth was stopped on Cold Spring Road July 19, according to the court.
