ESU1IBAES NEW FIELD OF
WORK IN ATOMIC MECHANICS
Dr. Robert Andrews Millikan, win-
3r of the Nobel prize for physics last
ai, and second .of the only two Am-
icans ever to have received that
nor, delivered a University lecture
11 o'clock yesterday morning in
itural Science auditorium on the
tbject of "Atomic Structures." He
aWs in Ann Arbor to deliver the prin-
pal address at the Phi eta Kappa
itiation banquet last night.
President Marion L. Burton, who
s been confinedtoshis home for the
rast week, and has hd to cancel
ost of his engagements for some
ne because of illness, was able to in-
bduce the speaker. Professor Milli-
mn described the various parts that
ientists are now agreed mak up the
oms.
Electrons Determine Kind
"If we could magnify the atom 10
llion times, it would have a diameter
E about a yard, and yet the nucelus,
ich sometimes contains several hun-
aed electrons, would be the size of
pin head," said the professor. He
so pointed out that although one
n never see an atom withl his eye,
.e scientist can see them better than
these minute particles could be
ewed by the visual organs, due to
*e imperfections of sight.~
"It is the number of the electrons,"
lieves Dr. Millikan, "that determines
e majority of the characteristics
the atom except mass." He furth-
' said that all physicists agree th-at
>far no proof has been offered to
ad anyone to believe that there is
iy smaller electrigl charge than the
.ectron.
Adds To Knowledge
Dr. Millikan pointed out that, con-
ary to the popular idea, these) new
ieories of the phyicist concerning at-
ns has in no way destroyed any of
le claims put forth sometime ago by
ie chemists but have simply added
ditiona knowledge.
The main part of his address dealt
ith the field which he thinks will
ewelop into one of."Atomic Mechan-
s," similar to "CGeestial Mechanics."
hie atoms always travel in circular
aths, moving from one path to an-
;her. It is the prediction of the
ovements that will be taken up un-
er "Atomic Mechanics."

J. P. Morgan met leaders of the re-
parations commission informally to
discuss the proposed loan of 800,000,-
000 gold marks to Germany, as a
part of the reparations solution. He
said: first, that the loan would have
to be part of a genuine reparations
settlement, and second, that it would
have to be amply secured.
