Declares Sutstaining Postal Bill
Is No More Than Sound
Business Move.


Charaterizing the action of the Sen-
ate in sustaining President Coolidge's
veto of the postal wage increase bill
as mno more than a sound business
move, Professor Thomas H. Reed de-
lared that the more efficient manner.
to bring al out the change would be to
mnke some provision for gaining added
funds either before or At the same
time that any wage increase proposi
tion might become a law.
"There is no doubt but that the
postui employes needs the increase,"
lie continued, "especially in the lower
hanches of the service. In order to
1aise the salaries of the rural carriers
and under-clerks, however, I suppose
it will be, necessary to make the in-
crease effective all along the line.'
This will be the only way to maintain
the present relative salaries which
status should remain unchanged.
In; regard to the question as to the
best source for the added revenue
which would be necessitated by the
proposed raise, Professor Reed stated'
that the various classes of mail should
)efir the epOe h keo ing
"1'l, ho a detly bfn
fitted by the postal service should pay
for it, not through any general tax- I
ation measure but through a raise in
t) postal rates," explained the pro- j
fessor. "If the newspapers of the
country find it impossible to stand the7
increase in rates they ought to chargeI
their mail subscribers for the added
cost of mailing."
Now that the postal veto has been
sustained and a new measure will be!
necessary before the employes will I
receive any raise, Professor Reed
would favor as speedy action as pos-
sible to bring about the increase which
he believes to be merited by the men
In the service.

Sir Samuel Hoare, Britain's air min-
ister, is leaving no stone unturned to ,
give his country the greatest of air,
services. HP has'ordered the building
of a dirigible twice the size of the
U. S. S. Los Angeles. He intends it,
to be the first of a fleet to connect;
England with its far-flung colonies.

To Be Exhibited.
Detroit's twenty-fourth annual auto-
mobile show will be held this year in
the new Convention hall building dur-I
ing the week of January 17 to 24. All
the space has been assigned to exhi-
bitors on this, the largest one floor
exposition building in the county-y.
The Detroit show for 1925 will again
include not only passenger cars and
equipment but also commercial carse
busses, motor boats and boat acces-
ories, making it one of the most com-
plete exhibitions in the United Stales
Great interest is attached to the1
forthcoming event as there will be
more new models exhibited for the
first time than at any show in recent
years, according to announcements is-
sued by larger manufacturers. Several
new eight cylinder engines will make
their debut at this show while the
number of new designs in enclosed I
bodies is surprisingly large. Practic-
ally all of the late developments in
motor car design have to do with
closed bodies, which are being put on
the market at prides little above those1
of the open models.
A larger equipment and accessory,
division is prgmised by the manage-
ment while the motor boat department!
also has been expanded for the ap-
proaching exhibit. The amount of
space taken by producers of motor
busses should be of interest to the
majority of people because of their in-
creasing use in interurban transpor-

I It was then pointed out that Wright
is the designer of the Imperial Hotel
of Tokio, which was able to withstand
the last earthquake. In this hotel it
w4s Wright's own idea of the founda-
tions that saved the building. In this
way Wright attracted international
nolice. Professor Lorch asserted that
Wright's work in the United States
has been too extensive to be named.
Ile humorously concluded that the
Russians must have thought that "an
architect who could design a building
tl. t could withstand the earthquake
could design one that could withstand

Prof. Moses Gomberg, head of the
department of organic chemistry and
one of the leading chemists of the
country, was recently elected by the
jury of award of the American Chem-

Prof. Leigh J. Young, of the forestry
department, returned recently from a
conference in Washington, D. C., can-
ed by the U'nited States forest serv-
ice, comprised of representatives from
all the forest schools in the country.
The purpose of the meeting was t(
discuss the possible changes in the
examinations for technical men alcl
changes in the method of handling
the men after they entered tbe forest
service. Although there was consider-
able talk in favor of eliminating th
usual civil service examuina tion, noth
ing definite was done in that direction
and the present examination reia ins
Anot her outgrowth of the confer-
ence was the decision by the forest
service that in the future all men en-.
gaged in forest research problems will
be required to hold Doctor 'of Philos-
ophy degrees. The tendency of the
whole conference was to raise doecid
odly the standing of the technical mer
in the service.
The foirest service has found itself
in a difficult position because the I
amount of work requiring technical
handling has increased since the war
while the number of technical men in
the service has decreased. Civil serv-
ice examinations have not given the
forest service enough men to fill these
vacancies, and they would like to take
twice as many ien each year as they
have been doing if the schools ear
furnish them.

A letter from Prof. A. I. Morris of
the rhetoric department to Dean A. H.
Lloyd of the Graduate school appears
in a -ecent issue of Science, the offi-
cial organ of the American Association
for the Advancement of Science.
Under a section called "Scientific
E'vents," the letter is entitled "A

logical Sciences at the University of
Michigan." It explains the movement

After telling of the proposal made
at the last meeting of the association,
the letter goes on to say that "after
some preliminary conferences, seven
departments have taken steps to pool
their resources and to offer their con-
bined equipment to any one wishing
to make speech records for analysis.
By this combination we should be able
to provide facilities for recording by
any of the methods so far developed
and to provide material assistance in
the analysis of eurves for the study
of tone quamlity.
"Tiv, seven departments co-operat-
lug are the psychology, physiology,
physics, rhetoric," phonetics, mathe-
matics, and public speaking. Our pro-
posal is, perhaps, only a stop-gap to
serve until something better is de-
veloped, but so far as this plan can
be made to advance the laboratory
study of linguistic problems, these
seven departmients are glad to offer
their services."
