welfare work in the University hospi-
tal and at the Y. 4. C. A. camp. The
organization has been pressed for
funds for some time, and each member
was urged to formulate a plan where-
by the necessary finances might be
raised, and the above suggestions
were among those forthcoming.
Jay G. Pray proposed that the clubf
build two new houses, and before the
neeting had closed other members
volunteered to ofier the materialsJ
needed. One member olTered two lots,
and most. of the materials will be;

Of High Winds
Comes In March
March of all months in the year still
continues to hold the record for high j
winds, although the biggest wiii( ever
actually measured blew across MountJ
Washington on a January day,
This record was niade Jan. 11, 1878.
when a velocity of 186 miles an hour
was recorded on an official anemom-
eter there. But high winds reach
their greatest number in March, par-
ticularly in the country east of the I
"How strong was the wind" is aa
question often asked after a destruc-
tive storm. The American NatureJ
association says the answer is liable
to be misleading, for it is almost al-1
ways stated in terms of speed rathera
than force. The force of a wind canJ
be indicated accurately by saying
what pressure it exerts in pounds per
square foot upon a surface at right
angles to its path.
cially designed salvage ships were
sent to the scene with the hope of
being able to carry out" their purpose.
Members of the expedition have come
to London for additional supplies and
diving apparatus and, according to
their reports, 63 ships were lost on
which there were gold, precious
stones and statuary which the Turks
had removed from Greek towns.
The treasure had been taken on
board the fleet for transport to Turkey
when Admiral Cod'rington in 1827 en-
gaged the vessels in battle and sank
most of them. The bay where the
work has been started is about four
miles square, with rock bottom and
a maximum depth of water of approx-
imately 180 feet.
New Type Planes
Four new specially-designed army
ambulance airplanes soon will be plac-
ed in commission, if tests now in
progress prove satisfactory. One of
the selected models has been received
at McCook Field, Dayton, Ohio, and is
being put through its paces. Prelimin-
ary reports indicate that it will meas-
ure up to requirements.
The new plane is capable of flying
100 miles an hour and has accommo-
dations for two patients, the pilot and
a flight surgeon.
While the army jealously guards
structural secrets of its other air-
craft, it makes available to other na-
tions information regarding ambu-
lance airplanes. England, France,
Czechoslovakia and Sweden have ina
turn supplied the American govern-
inent with information regarding med-
