San Diego, Calif., Oct. 21.-(By
A. P.)-Safely moored to the 100 foot
mast expressly erected for the Shen-
andoah, the great dirigible docked
here after a swing north as far as
Seattle, swung lightly tonight while
her officers awaited for a favorable
weaher report in the eatern section
of the United States expressed the be-
lief this evening that the Shenandoah
would not start back to Lakehurst,
New Jersey before Thursday.
The dirigible arrived over San
Diego about 4 o'clock and swung
down thm- lower California coast and
shortly after daybreak headed back
for San Diego. The landing was
made at it o'clock and 45 minutes
later, after 300 blue jackets from the
naval air station had hauled her to
the mast, she was safely moored.
Officers of the dirigible declared
that the Shenandoah had not been
damaged in its rough trip down the
Pacific coast and that only a few
minor repairs would be necessary to
fit the airship for its trip back east:
Commander Za rachy Lan sdowne said
le would decide tomorrow whether
to take the Shenandoah direct to the
east or to stop at Fort Worth. Gas-
oline, helium and food were taken
aboard this afternoon.
H. T. Tiemann, of the U. S. forest
products laboratory at Madison, Wis-
consin, was the speaker at a meeting
of forestry students last night in the
Natural Science building.
"The Forests of Australia" was the
subject selected for the address, but
in order to make it more interesting,
Mr. Tiemann gave a travelogue, il-
lustrated by many slides he obtained
during the seven and a half months
he spent in Australia in 1921, at the
request of the Victorian government.
He touched upon the forestry prob-
lems of Australia and mentioned the
queer varieties of trees and fruits
found there. Pears of solid wood, and
cherries and native plums which
have the pit on the outside are among
the more remarkable of their fruits.
Mr. Tiemaun is a Yale graduate in
forestry, and has been directing most
of his attention to kiln drying, on I
which subject lie is an authority. 4
Rooms In Union

All the guest rooms at the Michi-

of the Union. Reservations enough
to fill the rooms were received by
the Union last summer. The reserva-

end of the Northwestern and Iowa
games. To aid alumni who return
for the game a list of rooms availa-

presentation this evening by the
Player's Club in Sarah Caswell An-

A private performance has been
made necessary through the illness of
several members of the cast. A pub-

Opera Orchestra
Needs 6 More Men
Six more men are needed in the
orchestra, for the Michigan Union
opera. Fourteen men have been picked
so far but a 20-piece orchestra is to
be used this year, the largest the
opera has ever had.
The instruments yet needed are a
flute, clarinet, drums, French horn,
trumpet, and bass viol. Any students
wishing to truout for the orchestra
may do so at 7:15 this evening in the
Mimes Theater, where Mr. Shuter, the
director will meet them.


Speaker Makes Sport of Popular Ideas
About Frozen Country; There
Are no Snow-Houses
"Some of the terrors of the Arctic
are really there, but the real ones are
such that they can be conquered,"
said Vilhjalmur Stefansson, famous
Arctic explorer and lecturer, speak-
ing on "Abolishing the Arctic," in the
opening lecture of the 1924-25 Ora-
torical series last night in Hill audi-
torium. He was introduced by Pres-
ident Marion L. Burton, who official-
ly opened the course.
"It is impossible to go beyond the
flowers, the butterflies, and the bum-
ble-bees unless you climb a moun-
tain," the explorer said in conjunc-
tion with the statement that there
are 140 varieties of flowers within
the Arctic circle. "There is nothing
so fundamentally believed by the
average man as that the tropics are
always hot, the temperate zone al-
ways medium, and the Arctic always
cold," he added.
Mr. Stefansson opened his lecture
'ith the statement that about 450
years ago there lay to the southy of
Portugali a "boiling ocean," and to
the west a "sea of darkness and of
terrors." Prince Henry the Naigator
and Christopher Columbus abolished
these ideas, "even as far-seeing men
are now trying to "abolish the Arc-
Weather Really Temperate
(The speaker then told of how the
ancient Greeks had believed that the
polar regions started at the Alps, and
of how that supposedly frozen regio
gradually retreated through France
and Germany, Scotland, the Scandi-
navians, and Russia until today "e
think we see a frozen land just be-
yond our own horizon." He said, "To-
dcay I am a great hero for doing in
the Arctic what as a boy I did daily
in going to school. It all depends
on the advertising you get.
"The United States has had a
weather bureau on the nortiern tip
of Alaska, 300 milex above the polar
circle, on and off for 40 years, and
the lowest temperature ever record-
ed was 54 degrees below zero. In the
summer it is 90 degrees above zero
in the shade every year, and some-
times 95 to 100 degrees <above" he
Stefansson pointdd out that there
are places in the ten perate zone that
get colder than the polar zone, as in
Montana, North Dakota, and some of
the Canadian rrovinces, and also
places that get hotter than the trop-
ics, as in Death Valley, California.
The difference that he emphasized is '
that we don't know how to fight beat,
while there are numerous ways of
coinbatting cold.
"Mountains, no matter if they are
in the tropics, will be covered by
snow if they ar l high enough, 'and
likewise no lanti, even that in the,
polar zone, can possibly be covered
with snow and ice in, the summer if
it is at sea level," the explorer ex-
I plained. "Where you find any place
in time Arctic that is not covered by
vegetation it is either too high or the
soil is not suitable" he added.
Vegitariaiism Coming
The speaker made sport of -several
popular misconceptions, among them
the belief that all Eskimos live in
snow houses. He said that more than
half of all the living Eskimos had
never either seen a snow house or
knew what one was, and that a large
part of those had only seen pic-
tures of them. Mr. Stefansson said
that the snow house is one of his
favorite kinds of houses, but that very
I few Eskimos have them.
"We are marching toward an inevit-
able vegitarianism," the speaker said.
"But there are four or five millions
of square miles where you cannot
raise grain, but on which the reindeer,
whose meat has become both popular

and expensive in New York City,
thrives readily." That this meat would
I find its way to the world markets
was combined with the statement that
"the polar region is surrounded on
every side by dense population."
Mr. Stefanssonsalso talked for a
short time on world air routes, the
disputes, and several new angles, of
the Wrangle island case, and on the
