Dr. Lange Koch, Danish Exporer, Will
Collaborate with Prof. Hobbs
in Planning Stations
That the establishment of meteoro-
logical stations in Greenland by the
proposed University of Michigan ex-
pedition to that island next summer,
in cooperation with a similar explor-
ation by the Danish government, will
provide the means of warning Europe
of the approach of violent storms
from that region, is the opinion of
Prof. William H. Hobbs, head of the
geology department.
Since his return from Europe this
summer, where he was the official sci-
entific advisor for the next Greenland
expedition to be undertaken by the
Danish government, Professor Hobbs
has been making preliminary arrange-
ments for the University expedition
which he will lead next summer pro-
vided the proper funds can be raised.
"At certain intervals," said Profes-
sor Hobbs yesterday, "air waves rush
out from all sides of Greenland with
hurricane velocity which appears to
be the origin of storms that travel
over Europe. If we can send forth
word by wireless, after our meteoro-
logical stations ha-ve been established
on the island, just as soon as thse
so-called hurricanes begin, we can,
give ample warning to all of Europe
of their approach.
Could Detect Storms
"Observations indicate that nearly
all of the storms which sweep north-
ern and southern Europe are these
hurricanes which have their origin
on the inland ice of Greenland. I
believe they could easily be detected
at the height which the stations
.would be located so that, the l~tter ,
would prove oftremendous value."
Dr. Lange Koch, Danish explorer,
who has already commanded two ex-
peditions through the heart of Green-
land, and who consulted 1Irofessor
Hobbs during the summer relative to
the next trip, will leave next July to
spend two years on the island with
other explorers from Denmark. The
base of his expedition will be Scorby's
sound on the eastern coast. In 1927
Dr. Koch plans to make a sledge
journey across the frozen wasteland,
directly through the middle of the
island, to the western coast.
Professor Hobbs expects to pene-
trate the island from the western
coast next summer at Holstenborg.
Ile plans to establish two meteoro-
logical'stations, one in the interior
at an elevation of 5,000 feet, and the
other near the inland ice east of Hol-
stenborg at an elevation of 3,000 feet.
The party will first explore the in-
terior before establishing any stations,
he said, to determine 'various alti-
Two Radio Stations Planned
It is Professor Hobb's plan to erect
complete radio stations at the two
bases, and to leave two men in charge
of each. He hopes to carry supplies
to the stations by means of hydro-
planes equipped with skiis. The lat-
ter detail he believes to be entirely
feasible. Amundsen and other ex-
plorers are also of the opinion that
this will be possible, he said.
The 'Norwegian government has as-
sured Professor Hobbs that he , will
receive full cooperation in the pro-
posed expedition with the establish-
ment of radio stations by that coun-
try on the islands of Spitzbergen and
Jan Mayen, east of Greenland. Den-
mark has so agreed to erect a radio
station in Iceland.t s
Dr. Koch has already established a
colony at Scorby's sound in prepara-I
tion forthe trip nextssummer.pThirty
eskimos comprise the settlement, and
arenow engaged in erecting a radio
ProfessorHobbs is planning to take
several members of the geology de-
partment with him next summer.
Few if any, will remain in the in-

tenor for any length of time, he said,
due to the intense cold, where the
temperature is frequently recorded as
40 degrees below zero during the sum-
mer. Experienced explorers will be
those stationed at the two bases to
carry on the observation work.

Plante to Safe Landing With
Broken Wing Strut


"Engaged," the three act burlesque
written by W. S. Gilbert, wgich was
performed in the Mimes theater last
night before a capacity audience, will
be repeated again tonight, as its final
appearance. The performace of this
play marks the re-establishment of a
regular series of legitimate plays, in,
addition to the regular Union opera,
inaugurated by the Mimes organiza-
tion four years ago.
A review of last night's per-
formance of "Engaged" will be
found in the music and drama
, column for today.
The production is under the direc-
tion ofpRobert Henderson, '26, and
was supervised by E. Mortimer Shut-
.en. The cast includes Neal Nyland,
'26, Barre Hill, '26, James Martin,
'27, and Valentine Davies, '27. Set-
tings for the play were especially de-
signed by Robert Woods, '28, and
were executed in the Mimes work-
shop. Music incident to the produc-
tion is furnished by a trio under the
direction of Joseph Ellis, '26.
"Engaged," which is a parody of the
Victorian type of melodrama, was re-
'vived a few months ago by the Stag-
ers in New York, and became one of
the most popular plays of the season.
There are still a few desirable seats
left for tonight's performance. These
iwill be placed on sale from 12 to 6 o'-
clock today at the box office in the
Mimes theater. '-

MITCHELL FIELD, N. Y., Oct. 13.-'
The 1925 national air races were
brought to a dramatic close today
with a superb example of an army
aviator's judgment, skill and cool-
ness in the fact of danger.
With the left landing wheel and its
struts torn away, against telephone
and power lines, from the large Doug-
las transport plane lhe was piloting in
the Detroit News trophy race, Capt.
Early W. Duncan, of Langley Field,
Virginia, faced with one of aviation's I
most dangerous situations, neverthe-
less made a safe landing in full view
of a breathless crowd.
Thousands stood transfixed as they
realized the position of the aviator
and his passenger, Sergt, William'
Morehead, also of Langley Field.
They burst into tears after the
plane glided slowly to the ground
with the motor throttled down, taxied
along for one hundred yards, balanc-
ed on its remaining landing wheel,
and came to a stop by digging its
nose into the ground.
The propeller was crumpled againsti
the ground, the nose of the plane wasI
bent and a wing dragged with some
damage. But the two fliers stepped
from their cockpits unhurt.

WASHINGTON, Oct. 13.-John
Wingate Weeks regretfully stepped
out of public life today, relinquishing
his office of Secretary of War to
Dwight F. Davis, assistant secertary,
world war veteran, and holder of the
distinguished service cross for gal-
lantry in action.
Mr. Weeks will leave Washington
1 tomorrow night to begin a six months
period of leisure and travel, which his
physicians hope will bring him com-
plete restoration of health. He de-
ferred his departure in order to be
present tomorrow when Chief Justice
Taft, at his personal request, admin-
istered the oath of office to Mr. Davis.
In neary a quarter century of pub-
lic service, Mr. Weeks has never
known a moment of greater pride
than came to him today after the an-
nouncement that he had found it ne-
cessary to resign. There was an im-
mediate outpouring from the White
House of prominent members, of his
associates in the War Department,
and of friends and citizens of widely
different political faith, testifying to
the admiration and respect in which
he was held and to the regret with
which his withdrawal from public life
was viewed.
In his letter of resignation, the re-
tiring secretary made it clear that
his physical suffering of the last few
months had in no wise dimmed his
keen interest in public affairs and
particularly in the problems of the
War Department.
Aircraft's Gas I
Valves Unsafe
Officers State
(By Associated Press)
WASHINGTON, Oct. 13.-Changes'
made in the gas cell installation on
the airship Shenandoah were de-
clared unsafe today by the construc-
tion officers appearing before the
naval court of inquiry. Both added,
however, that, with a crew as skilled
as that of this airship, the alterations
were not necessarily dangerous.
Commander Ralph D. Weyerbacher,
who constructed the Shenandoah, said
he had known Lieut. Roland G. Mayer
and Charles G. Bauch, officers in
charge of the gas cells, had great
confidence in their skill and ability,
and would have felt safe aboard the
Shenandoah with them on the job to
look at the new valve arrangement.
Commander Garland Fulton, who
approved the change with a warning
that it would, not be as "fool proof"
as the original, installation, declared
the Shenandoah crew was one of the
most experienced that could be found
and that it was because of this that
the alteration was authorized. He
said the total gaf valve capacity was
reasonable, but that he would have
preferred to have more of it in the
automatic instead of the maneuvering
or hand valves.

Eight Bishops
Nominated For
Chief Diocese
(By Associated Press)
NEW ORLEANS, La., Oct. 13.-
Eight bishops were placed in nomina-
tion by the House of Bishops this af-
ternoon for presiding bishop of the
Protestant Episcopal church in the
United States. From the eight a
bishop will be elected tomorrow to
act as presiding bishop and president
of the council.
Those nominated were: Bishop
Charles H. Brent, Western New York;
Thmas F. Gailor, Tennessee; John
Gardner Murray, Maryland; Edward
L. Parsons, California; William Ca-

cepted a report of the committee on
canons recommending that the reso-
lutions presented it from the diocese
of Southern Ohio regarding divorce
and remarriage should not be ac-
The resolutions, while approving
the state's power to grant divorce,

The House of Bishops by unani-
mous vote declined to accept the

the salary of the presiding bishop, to
be elected tomorrow at $18,000. The

Rare Copies Of
Books Shown In
Library Exhibit
Association copies of many old
books are now on exhibition in the
cases lining the Library. An associa-
tion copy is one which is valuable to
the bibliophile for the associations it
holds rather than for its value purely
as a book. Generally they are books
sent by the author to his friends.
Emerson's copy of Walt Whitman's
"Leaves of Grass" (first edition) prob-
ably holds the greatest interest of
the collection. Besides these associa-
tions it was given to Frank Sanborn
by Emerson not long after the latter
had received it. The Library secured
it at the sale of Sanborn's library.
Samuel L. Clemens' copy of a ninth
edition of Robinson Crusoe, which was
printed in 1748, is not without inter-

with the author's autograph and re-
marks, which was presented to Henry

Standard Sets
With the contribution of $2,000 last
summer by Mrs. Edward Waldo I
Pendleton, donor of the Pendleton
library in the Union, for the purchase
of books, and a number of literary!
donations by alumni, the shelves of
the new library are now practically
filled. Standard works of fiction and
many biographical volumes are num-
bered among the collection.
A committee chosen to select the
books, following Mrs. Pendleton's
contribution for this purpose. There
are still a number of books to be pur-
chased, although the library is about
complete. The committee is com-
prised of W. W. Bishop, University
librarian; F. D. L. Goodrich, assist-
ant librarian; Prof. A. L. Cross of the
history department; and Robert An-

Heath ani Cavanaugh Back Barton in
Declaring Executive Counil
Without Satus
That the recent committee appoint-
ments of the Union, as made by Al-
bert B. Adams, '26, president did not
all receive the approval of the ap-
pointment committee, as provided in
the constitution, was again asserted
yesterday by Richard Barton, '26, re-
cording secretary, with the sustantia-
tion of statements to this effect by
Homer Heath, general manager of the
Union, and Thomas Cavanaugh, '27L,
general secretary.
Barton's declaration on Monday that
the executive council of the Union has
no official status in that its entire
personnel, the chairmen of 13 com-
mittees, had not received the approval
of the appointment committee, was
contradicted by Adams who said that
four appointment committee votes
had been recorded for each man be-
fore the list had been given out for
Barton said yesterday that five
names had been definitely approved
by the committee as selections for
committee chairmen, rather than
three as reported Monday. Six others
were agreed upon by the committee
as acting chairmen, and not final ap-
pointments, he stated, while the se-
lections of the two assistant record-
ing secretaries was also temporary
rather than definite as stated by
Adams when the announcements were
made to The Daily.
Ieath Backs Barton
"The five appointments and the six
chosen as acting chairmen were
agreed upon by the committee at its
first meeting," said Barton, "whereas
the appointment of hairmen to two
other committees were not even men-
tioned nor were the assistant chair-
men named by Adams."
Mr. Heath and Cavanaugh were
agreed upon the point yesterday that
the appointments were handled in
precisely this manner. "The list as
it appeared in The Daily never re-
ceived my approval," said Mr. Heath.
According to Barton, the following
were the only definite appointments
as approved by the committee: Karl
Crawford ,'27, chairman of the re-
ception committee; Lawrence Buell,
'27, chairman of the entertainment
committee; Robert Price, '27, chair-
man of the lectures committee; Les-
ter Johnson, '27L, chairman of the
debt committee; and Elliot Chamber-
lain, '27, chairman of the life mem-
bership committee: In the announce-
ment of Adams, Johnson was placed
as head of the underclass committee
and Theodore Maynard, '27, was
named chairman of the debt commit-

The Union constitution provides
that "the president of the Union, its
