"What the Telephone Transmits and
IHow We Hear It" is the title of the
lecture which John Mills of the West-
ern E'lec tric company will deliver to-
night at 8 o'clock in Natural Science
:auditorium. Mr. Mills is well known
from his books, "Within tihe Atom,'
"Radio Communication," and "Letter,.
of a Radio Engineer to His Son." The
lecture tonight will be non-technical
and of interest to psychologists and
physiologists as well as to membersI
of the 'Detroit-Ann Arbor section of
the American Institute of Electrical
Engineers under wAhose auspices it is
being given._I
Three reels of moving pictures, re-'

technical, direction, show the prinei-'

gation of speech and audition which
has been going on for some time in
the laboratories of the Bell Telephone
system. There are animated movies
showing the operation of the voice
mechanism, of the ear, and of the
transmitter and receiver. Then there
are graphs which are animated to
show the most recent results in the
analysis of speech and the measure-
men of the sensitivity of the human1
