Abstract
The paper describes the conflict between CERN staff and visitors over who should build heavy detectors to be used at the new 300 GeV accelerator, due to be commis- sioned in 1976. The arguments used by the protagonists are described, as well as some of the deeper forces at work in the debate. It is suggested that the conflict could only be resolved when detectors became so large that CERN and its outside users had no option but to collaborate in building them.
