Observatory Possesses
Biggest Instrument
of Its Kind

That the university observatory pos-
sesses the third largest reflecting tel-
escope in the world, is a fact not gen-
erally realized by Michigan students.
The instrument, which was coMpleted
in 1911, was designed by the directors
of the observatory, and was largely
constructed in Ann Arbor. Its superi-
or optical parts and its convenient
mounting make it one of the most
powerful instruments of its kind in the
world. The diameter of the large
mirror is 37 1-2 inches.
Since its completion, this telescope
has been devoted exclusively to the
photographic study of spectra, and for
this reason no sensational discoveries
have been made. More than three
thousand photographs have already
been taken with it.
The observatory also possesses one
of the best installations in the country
for registering earthquakes. The in-
strument, which is called the seismo-
graph, registers every unusual move-
ment of the earth during all the 24
hours of the day. It has kept a com-
plete record of earthquakes in all
parts of the globe for five consecutive
The observatory houses many other
pieces of interesting apparatus. In its
equipment are a 12 inch refracting tel-
escope, an anemometer, which regis-
ters the velocity of the wind, and a
transit, which is used in observing the
time of the transit of heavenly bodies
across the sky.

L. B. Molseyeff, '15E, Who Took Part
In A Russian Uprising, Finds
Hope In Conflict
Leonard B. Moiseyeff, '15E, who took
an active part in the Russian revolu-
tion of 1904-5, and was later exiled by
the government, believes that the
European war has much hope and
promise for the peasant classes in
Russia. He is of the conviction that
the Kaiser of Germany cooperated
with the Russian bureaucracy in the
suppression of the Russian people.
"I am of the opinion," said Mr.
Moiseyeff in speaking of the present
European) situation, "that Russia did
not gain her liberty at the time of
revolution in 1904-1905, because Ger-
many, represented by the Kaiser and
the military party, supported in every
possible way Russian bureaucratic
government. The Kaiser does not
want to see Russia a free country, be-
cause he realizes that Russia's enor-
mous population of 71,000,000 would
be of great danger to Germany, com-
mercially and politically, if the Rus-
sian people were made free.
"I am not identifying the Kaiser of
Germany and the military party, with
the brilliant, progressive people. In
the time of the . Russian revolution,
people withdrew their money from the
banks. at the instigation of the revolu-

"The' reasons for the present Euro-
pean war are many and complicated.
The conflict had to come sooner or
later. It was commonly stated that
the cause of the present war was the
murder of Arch-duke Franz Ferdi-
nand, the heir to the Austro-Hungar-
ian monarchy, by a pan-Servian fana-
tic at Saraevo. In other words, war
was due to the death of the most hated
royal person in Europe. Neither the
Kaiser nor the German war party
believe this to be the cause. They
know, and we know, that Saraevo was
the pretext and not the cause. The
Kaiser thought it an advantageous
time to strike at his political enemies,
Russia and France.
"It makes no difference who wins
the present struggle, for Russia will
gain greatly in regard to her liber-
ties. The Russian people, as well as
the Russian government, see plainly
that in order to' withstand the pres-
sure from the west, they must be on
a level with all Europe. Russia is on
the dawn of a new era. Her bureau-
cratic government will have to live
up to the principles of her republican
Dr. Norman E. Richardson, professor'
of religious psychology and pedagogy
in Boston University, will be the
speaker at the next "Y" meeting Sun-
day night at 6:30 o'clock at the Majes-
tic theater. -
Dr. Richardson studied for three
years at several German universities,
and is considered one of, the leading
professors of Boston. Aside from his
connection with Boston University, he
has 1,200 outside pupils.
Y. M. C. A. to Meet in Battle Creek
"Relationships" will be the general
topic for discussion at a state meeting
of city Y. M. C. A. board members,
committee men and constituents, to
be held at the Battle Creek Sanitari-
um, October 28 and 29. The associa-
tion's relationship to the schools, to
civic affairs, to industry and to the
church will be considered. Prof. A. G.
Hall, registrar of the university is one
of a commission of six to report on
the church phase.

By Cyril Harcourt (822.8 H26p)
The independence of modern youth,
intensified by impertinence, gives the
playwright an opportunity to con-
struct an impolite comedy of the man-
ners type. There is, in the first place,
one family which -contributes two
children to the action, while, on the
other hand, there is a second family
which offers up two more children
and the p a r e n t against whom
the essence of present-day youthful
disagreeableness is splashed. The
four children fall in love in more or
less disapproved fashion, the father
becomes sputteringly indignant, and
there is no end of trouble until the
unseeing parent is induced, at the
finish, to admit that modern youth are
But the reader may not agree with
the conclusion extracted for him by
Mr. Harcourt. If he is a bit old man-
nered, and still thinks that even a
gouty parent has his rights, he may
climb through the lines, take the mak-
ing of the moral into his own hands,
and end up by insisting that the father
is the victim of a tragedy. In trying
to dazzle the beholder with the inci-
sively brilliant impertinence of youth,
the writer carries his illustration too
far, and the result is that his fool is
made his hero.
Sentimentality is excluded, and the
love-making is breezy but determined.
Everybody says what he thinks, es-
pecially if it happens to be. In the na-
ture of an assault on the father's old-
styled notions regarding young people.
The dialogue is ' sharp, but cruelly
sharp, and the farcicial situations get
most of their poignancy out of shock-
ing the wholesome ideas of propriety
still extant.
