Ann Arbor Goblins, Ghosts on Prowl

Show Work

On Weather
The University's meteorological
laboratories gave an open house
yesterday afternoon in the East
Engineering Bldg.
The exhibit was divided into
two parts, in the first part were
displays of research projects and
the other part showed equipment
used in teaching and gathering
meteorological data.
Exhibit Instruments
E x a m p e s of thermometers,
barometers, precipitation and
wind velocity measurers, weather
ballons and many other instru-
mnents were shown. Two different
sizes of balloons were shown, one
which was capable of going up
85 thousand feet and the other
up to 125 thousand.
With the balloon was shown an
instrument that radioed back to
earth the temperature and rela-
tive humidity. A graph was shown,
showing the record of a balloon
which went up into the tropopause
-the upper part of the lowest
layer of the atmosphere.
The balloon went through a
cloud and indicated that the top
of the cloud was warmer than
the bottom as it was warmed by
the rays of the sun.
Prduce Tornadoes
Also, there were models show-
ing how clouds, fog, tornadoes, cy-
clones, hurricanes, typhoons, dust
devils, and water spouts were
formed, These models were of
relatively simple construction but
produced very convincing torna-
does and clouds.
Cloud seeding and weather ob-
serving methods also were shown.
The second part of the exhibit
concerned the UMRI and Willow
Run Research Programs. There
were displays of UMRI's projects
on "Atmospheric Diffusion Stu-
dies and Meterological Analysis,"
atmospheric pollution, and a
study of cloud droplet formation.
Display 'Project Michigan'
There was also a display on the
Willow Run Laboratories "Project
Michigan" This is the project
that earned the University an
award from the U.S. Army Signal
Corps for its research on combat
The exhibit was in two parts
because this coinhided with the
divisions of' the meteorological
laboratories. Part of the labora-
tories is under the UMRI and the
other part is in the civil engineer-
ing departmen. But the two

TRICK OR TREAT - Goblins and ghosts and witches were in abundance last night as Halloween
loosed upon Ann Arbor all of the "underworld" spirits ... under seven years old. This little "gob-
lin" is demanding treats from the North Campus area. Promising all sorts of dire results if the
residents don't cooperate, this little demon managed to collect a pile of loot before scooting off to
the car where the "monster's" parents were carefully watching that no one should harm the devil..
A good time was had by all ... except the witches, they got sick.

Old Judy, who remained true
to her feline taste for mice to
the very end, died yesterday at
the age of 24.
She passed away in her farm
home at Sergeantsville, N.J.,
leaving the American Feline
Society a bit upset.
"That was the second oldest
cat in the United States," Rob-
ert Lothar, society president,
said when told of the event.
Mrs. Newton B. Scrope, own-
er of the black, white and
orange puss, said Judy contin-
ued to catch mice as late as
last month. This involved a
little effort, because Judy was
working under a slight handi-
cap - she had only one tooth

Campus Newspaper Discloses
Football Betting at Ohio State

(EDITOR'S NOTE: Thisis a re-
print from the "Ohio State Morn-
ing Lantern" issue of Thurs., Oct. 30.)
Campus area spot card pushers
scurried for cover Wednesday in
the wake of a national expose of
gambling by students at the Uni-
versity of Michigan.
But not before the Lantern had
gathered a handful of the colorful
betting cards from a number of

Indian To Give
Library Talks
Prof. S: R. Ranganathan of In-
dia will deliver two lectures on
Monday under the auspices of the
library science department.
He will speak at 10,a.m. on "Re-
cent Developments in Classifica-
tion" and at 7:45 p.m. on "Library
Progress in India." Both talks will
be held in the Multi-Purpose
Room of the Undergraduate Li-

his field, among them "Colon

shops, restaurants, haberdasheries
and pool halls close to campus.
No Involvement Indication
There is nothing to indicate,
however, that any Ohio State ath-
letes have ever been involved in
either the sale or the possession
of the cards.
A campus student in a position
to know estimates that between
30 and 45 per cent of Ohio State
male students participate in spot
card betting and that the "take"
from the weekly gambling grosses
$10,000 equal to that reported on
the Michigan campus.
Spot cards sell for a dollar,
though bets of $5 and $10 are
not unusual, the source reported.
A typical card lists 29 games. The
bettor may bet any number up
to 15 on a point rating basis. It
is possible to win $500 for $1, or
$2500 by picking 15 winners, and
betting $5.
Variations Appeared
Variations of the football spot
card have appeared- on campus
from time to time. There are bas-
ketball cards during the winter,
but these are on the wane due to
the frequent games played by
basketball teams.
At one time on campus an en-
terprising student had worked out
his own baseball spot card. Bet-
tors could pick any three batters
in either league. If the batters got
seven hits among them, the card
paid off.
A simpler way to bet football
currently in Columbus, it is re-
ported is to know the right phone
number. Bettors can pick any two
teams for a parlay. The payoff is
$11 for $5.
