Practical jokers did consider-

RM Y TO TEST NO[L
IDEA INAIR WAUAR
Dayton, O., March 8 (AP).-The air-
ship RS-1 which, when completed, will
be more than three times as large as
any semi-rigid balloon now in- the
army service, will be delivered at
Scott Field, Belleville, Ill., June 1.
Shortly thereafter the balloon will be
taken to McCook Field for trials.
The RS-1, of 720,000 cubic feet gas
capacity, will have as one of its new
features the aerial' hook which wasj
developed at McCook Field. This
hook is fixed under the bag and will
permit of an airplane, to which a cor-
responding device is attached, to hook
onto the balloon and ride with it. The
plane, can leave at the will of the
This operation proved a success
with smaller devices several monthsi
ago when the Sperry messenger plane'
attached itself to a small balloon, rode
for a while, and then returned to theI
field independent of the balloon.
In time of war, it is believed a great
gas bag could haul a large number of
small fighting planes over enemy ter-
ritory. The planes then could do their
work and return to the balloon for
ferry back to a central station. The
idea is novel, but practical, army of-
ficials say, because small fighting
planes have only a limited cruising
radius occasioned by the small amount!
of gasoline they are capable of carry-
Rare Bird Plumes
Bird of paradise plumes, aigrette
feathers, and nuimerous other orna-
mental plumes constitute a collection
now on display at the Zoology mu-
seum. The plumes, which are in varn-
ous states of preparation for. trade,
range in value from $16 to $150.
Exportation and importation of bird
plumes for ornamental purposes is
prohibited by law in the United States,
and the plumes on exhibition are part
of a smuggled shipment that was in-
tercepted by customs authorities.
Legal action was necessitated by the
wholesale slaughter of native birds to
obtain the beautiful plumes.
The collection was presented to the
museum by the National Audubon So-
ciety of New York City, an organiza-
tion for the protection of bird life.
Leader Of Geneva
Announcement has been made at the
S. C. A. of the appointment of Charles
E. Highley, .25, as head of the Uni-
versity delegation to the Lake Geneva
student conference, planned for the
coming summer. The conference is one
of a series held every summer.
The theme of the conference this
year is to be "The Youth Movement in
Action," the speakers who have al-
ready signified their intentions of be-
ing present are known as being the
foremost in that line of work in the
country. Sherwood Eddy, intern-
ational representative of the Y. M. C.
A. who will be remembered as having
spoken at the Michigan state older
boys' conference here last fall, andj
Dr. C. W. Kilkey, pastor of the Hyde
Park Baptist church in Chicago, who
spoke in this city at a recent Univer-
sity service, will lead the program,
and several others of international
fame are expected to be present.
The object of these conferences is
to instill into the minds of the coming
generation the, higher thoughts and
ideals of older men who have tried
their wings and found the true mean-
ing of life. The true status of extra-
curricular activities and the responsi-
bilities of American citizenship will
be a main part of the discussion.
The Michigan delegation will probe.

already started in his efforts to round
'up this number. The conference is toj
last from June 13 to June 23.

SHOPS I1NSTALL PLANER
FOR CUTTING RESEAR1CH'
Installation of a 15,000 pound planer
to be used for the next two or three
years for research work in Investigat-
ing the work required to remove dif-
ferent metals by cutting, is now going
on in the Engineering Shops foundry.
It is hoped, says Prof. O. W. hoston,
acting director of the shops, that a
formula can be worked out showing
the mathmatical equation between.
variable factors of the cutting tool,
such as its geometric form, its speed,
and size of the chip removed.
These results may also be' applied
to other types of cutting more gener-
ally applicable to industry. The planer[
has been, installed on a part of thel
floor especially designed for it, being
capable of bearing a load of 500
pounds per square foot. .l
Results obtained in the investiga-I
tions will be released for the benefit I
of the different industries, which
would not be done if a private con-
cern had charge of the work. This
problem has been exciting special at-
tention in the automotive field, while
a special committee has ben appoint-
ed by the American Society of Me-
chanical engineers to investigate the
matter. Findings made by the Uni-
versity will also be turned over to this

and a study of the laws of natural

the same department.
Other problems are being investi-
gated by the research division through
fellowships maintained by the Acme
White Lead and Color Works for 'the
study of paints; by Roy D. Chapin, for
research in highway engineering; by
the Detroit Edison company, for high-
way engineering and metallurgy; and
the Michigan Gas association.
In addition to these major re-
searches and fellowship, work is con-
tinually being done on a number of
smaller problems, .among them being
water analysis, tests of paints, coal
analysis, automobile tests, investiga-
tion of paper mill problems, engine
design problems, and many others.
During the past year 52 of these small-
er problems were: solved, while 6$
persons were employed to carry on
the research program.

of less severity than the initial dis-
