15S SKEPTICAL OF
EINSTEIN THEO RY
Prof. Patterson in Lecture Tuesday
States It Is Not Necessarily
Correct-
DECLARES FOUNDATIONS OF
SCIENCE ARE THREATENED
"Einstein's views on relativity are
not necessarily correct," stated Prof.
George W. Patterson, of the depart-
ment of engineering mechanics, in a
discussion of "Relativity," before the
Ann Arbor section of the American
Association of Enginers Tuesday
night at the Union.
Professor Patterson traced the his-
tory of the attitude of science toward
ether, the hypothetical medium
through which certain waves, such
as those of light, are supposed to
travel.
1I1chelson's Theory
Prof. A. A. Michelson, now of the
University of Chicago, and Prof. F
W. Morley, of Western Reserve Uni
versity, made experiments in Cleve-
land in 1886 which led to the opin-
ions that this ether, heretofore con-
sidered unaffected by motions of
bodies through it, was actually drag-
ged about by the motion of the earth.
Einstein's theory, formulated not long
after this time, apparently explained
this result most satisfactorily b'
e'liminating the need for ether alto-
gether.
Einstein predicted an apparent
shift, due to the sun's gravitational
effect upon light, in the position of
certain stars in the region of the sky
near the sun during a total eclipse
in 1918. This prediction was closely
borne out by observation. It was
after this time, Professor Pattersor
stated, that the public in general
woke up to the revolutionary effect
-f Einstein's theory.
Now it is by no means impossible
n the opinion of astronomers, Pro-
fessor Patterson pointed ot, that ti"
"unarent shift observed during the
eclipse under discussion may have an
explanation entirely different from
that offered by Einstein; it might be
explained even by such a simple phe-
nomenon as refraction.
.Prof.Dayton C. Miller, of the Case
School of Anied Science, who is
continuing Mchelon and Morlev's
Ceveland work at Mount Wilson. Cali-
fornia, has just Announced' results
that tend to indicate that in the C1-
fornia laboratory, situated on a moun-
tain top, about which there are lpss
obstructions than in the city of Cleve-
land, only a fraction of the ether fo'-
lows the earth's movements. This
would tend in Professor Patterson's
opinion to substant'ate the old ether
hypothesis and refute Einstein.
Based on Speed of Light
"The faundations of the theory of
relativity," said Professor Patterson,
"are the assumpftions that the speed
of light is the maximum limit of mo-
tion, and that objects are foreshort-
ened in the direction toward which
they are moving, the foreshortening
being proportional to the objects'
velocities, as first suggested by Fitz-
Gerald. Some of Einstein's deduc-
tions are that simultaneously in time
is relative, not absolute; that par-
allel lines may meet, due to the fourth
dimension which is imaginary time;
and that mass is not constant, but
, changed like dimensions, in pro-
portion to velocity.
"I am not ready to give up my old
ideas of Euclidian geometry, of the
conservation of mass, and of time,"
'oncluded Professor Patterson. "I'm
frankly skeptical."

Ancient Greek's
JMathematics Is
Now Translated
Work on the translation of "The
Arithmetic of Nicomachus of Gerasa,"
started and carried almost to com-
pletion by Martin L. D'Ooge, formerly
of the Greek department of the Uni-
versity, is practically complete, ac-
cording to Dr. Frank E. Robbins, as-
sistant to the president and formerly
of the Greek department, who has!
been devoting a portion of his time
to the work.
When Professor D'Ooge retired he
undertook to translate the work of
Nicomachus, probably the most valu-
able of books in the development of
mathematics, from the Greek to Eng-
lish, a task that had never been ac-
-omp'ished. Upon his death in 1915
the work was not quite complete and
'acked po'ishing.
Since that time Prof. F. W. Kelsey.
,%f the Latin department, Prof. Louis
C. Karpinski. of the Enzineerinq col-
'age. and DeWitt H. Parker, professor
-f philosophy. in addition to Dr. Rob-
"Ins. have been completing the work
ind hope to see it published as a
memorial volume to Professor D'Ooge.
Nicomachus lived about 100 A. D.
-nd many of the manuscriuts which
"ave been studied in the course of the
research for this book have dated
ack to nearly the beginning of the
'Tbristian era. Among the material
used were reproductions of manu-
-cripts sent back from Europe by
T' brarian W. W. Bishop on his recent
rip.
