MILLION ESTIMATED LOSS IN
Prof. Albert E. White, of the chem-
ical engineering department, is per-
sonally conducting University re-i
search for the Board of Education of
Detroit in an effort to find a prevent-
ative for the destructive water cor-
rosion which is seriously attacking
its plumbing, equipment.f It is esti-
mated that in Detroit the total loss
to all buildings through corrosion'
amounts to more than $1,000,000 an-
The board asked.the University to
determine a remedy either in recom-i
mendations for use of m'aterials in
plumbing equipment or the proper1
treatment of water to prevent theI
chemical, reaction. It is expected that
the treatment of water to remove un-
desirable compounds will be stressed
rather than the changing of piping;
materials. . t
Hot water lines are particularly af-
fected by the corrosive process, being
eaten away until whole sections and
many fittings have to be replaced. Not
only is much loss in the replacement
of the piping but also in the time and
materials required in restoring the
walls and floors that have to be torri
up to uncover the concealed pipes.
A solution of the corrosion pr.ob-
lem will prevent further corrosion ir
structures already built and will elim-
mate to a 'afte extent the trouble ir}
the buildings now being erected.

The most unusual features of the
structure are contaned in the plans
for the three basements, according to
Professor Rich. Exceptionally deep
excavations have been undertaken for
three reasons: first and primarily, to
secure freedom from the vibrations
of the street. At the present time all
experiments involving sensitive gal-
vanometers are necessarily extremely
difficult because of the vibrations of1
this instrument caused by the passageI
of heavy trucks and automobiles.
"Even by building as deep as we arc
we shall in all probability not elimi-
nate the heavier vibrations caused byl
the passage of the Mchigan Central
trains," he declaied.
The necessity for maintaining a con-
stant temperature for such apparatus
as the "ruling" engine is the second
cause. The engine now in use, loaned
to the University by John Hopkins un-
iversity, is capable of ruling 14,000
lines per .entimeter. An instrument
of this type is under construction at
the present time to replace the one
now employed. Finally, freedom froirI
noise is deemed necessary for sound
Freedom from Vibration is obtained
by placing parts of the sub-basement
on a separate foundation from the rest
of the building. The two-story sound
laboratory is literally a building with-
in a building, the walls being entirely
independent. The floor of this section
is of unusual complexity, being com-
posed of successive layers of concrete,
tarred paper, concrete, goofing,
felt, cork, brick, and sand.

Declared In Slump,
Business conditions in South Amer-
ica are bad at the present time anc
much of the boom in business ther
has now ceased, according to Prof. K.
C. Murray of the geography depart-
ment. A few years ago there was r
large exodus of students to South
America, due to the many opportuni-
ties that country offered in almost ev-
ery hu e. Conditions have changed ma-
terially now, many firms located
there have failed or have vacated, and
but few men are now going with the
intention of staying permanently.
South America was affected serious-
ly by the business depression of the
last few years, even more so than
some other countries, states Profesor
McMurray. The drop in prices caught
the Latin Americans with large
amounts of goods on hand bought a
high prices, and the country has been
slow in recovering.

LL over the country the whistle is blowing for
the kick-off, the start of that great game-
another college year.
Be on your toes when the whistle blows. A good
start will carry you well on toward your goal.
Let the football candidate start by working
away till his muscles ache from bucking the line.
Let the aspirant for manager put in careful
study of his team's needs, always eager to help
-arranging a trip or carrying a pail of water.
Let the publications man be alert for news'and
tireless in learning the details of editorial work.
Whatever activity you come out for, crowd a
lot of energy into these early Fall days.
And if a good start helps win campus honors,
it helps win class room honors, too. The sure way
to be up in your work is to aim now for regularity
at lectures, up-to-date note-books and particular
attention to the early chapters of text-books, thus
getting a grip on the basics.
This is best in the long run, and-"selfishly-it is
easiest in the long run. That is, if life after college is
made easier by the things a bigger income can buy.
