An expanded program of fundamental research on the physical structure of solids is planned at the University of Chicago. The University has signed a four‐year $2.3‐million contract with the Advanced Research Projects Agency to carry out studies in solid‐state physics, inorganic and solid‐state chemistry, and selected areas of geochemistry, and it is estimated that the number of faculty members engaged in various aspects of materials research will be increased about 25 percent. The University has also predicted an increase of about 70 percent in the number of graduate students primarily concerned with such studies.
