VQL. XXXVI. No. 148








(By Associated Press)
NEW LONDON, Conn., April
21.-With three seamen dead and
nine others injured, six of them
seriously, a naval board of in-
quiry had before it today the task
of determining the cause of an
explosion which shattered the
battery room of the submarine
S-4 9.
It was the second major disas-
ter suffered by the submarine
base here in less than a year.
Last September the S-51, a sister
ship of the S-49, went down off
Block island with 33 officers and
men after a collision with the
steamer City of Rome.
The blast on the S-49 came
withoutwarning just after the
seamen had finished a meal. No
officers were aboard, but within
a few minutes comrades of the
sea, their heads hooded with gas
masks, entered the wrecked and
gas filled room and carried the
12 victims of the explosion to
the open air.




Quakes Shake
Hawaii After
Mount Erupts
(By A Rsocated Press)
HILO, T. IT., April 21.-Terrifvn
earthquakes shook the district of
Kilauea volcano, on the 4,000-foot level
of Mauna Loa, which has been in erup-
tion for a. week past, yesterday after-
noon. The quakes caused enormous
avalanches in Halemaumau (Pit of
Everlasting Fire), which is nearly al-
ways active following an eruption on
Mauna Loa.
Prof. J. A. Jaggar, director of the ob-
servatory, says the tilt of the quake
indicates moving lava toward the pit.
KONA, .T. H., April 21.-The wrath
of the Goddess Pele apparently 'has
been appeased by the sacrifice of the
ancient village of Hoopuloa. The lava
flow from Mauna Loa today -was a
rapidly cooling fire-studded mass. It
was more than sufficient, however, to
block movement of automobiles overj
the government road, which it had.
buried deep in slag where it crossedlto1
the sea.

Cooley Shows Decrease In Engineering
Enrollment; Bates Declares Law
Building Is Defective
Indicating a decline in the need of
disciplinary action on the part of Uni-
versity officials, Joseph A. Bursley,
dean of students, reported to Presi-
dent Clarence Cook Little recently
that during the past year "not a single
case came up for reference to the
University committee on discipline
and only one group was cited to ap-
pear before the Senate committee on-
student affairs." This report and
those of the heads of other depart-
ments of the University are now in
the process of publication in the Pres-
ident's Annual Report.
"This year," sthe report of the Dean
continued, "was free from theater
rushes and hazing." The success of
the Student council was cited by Dean
Bursley as the reason for the'improve-
ment of conditions.f
In discussing the problem of "bring-
ing the fraternities to a better realiza-
tion of their relation to the University,
of reaching the unorganized students,
and of establishing in the mind of the
student a greater feeling of respect
for the law in general and the Vol-
stead act in particular," Dean Burs-c
ley asserted that the only solution1
would be "by providing means for1
close personal contact between each
student in the University and a mem-:
her of the faculty or administrative
officer." Suggesting a subdivision ofI
the student body into groups with a
faculty advisor for each subdivision,t
Dean Bursley stressed the point that1
the group should be small enough fort
close personal touch to be possible.
In the report of Dean John R. .f-
finger, of the literary college, atten-
tion was called to the advisability of
an early completion of the south
wing of Angell hall. "This wing will
not only provide accommodations for
the economics department, now poor-t
ly housed in what was the old chemi-
cal laboratory, but it will also pro-t
vide a lecture room with' a seating
capacity of about 1,000,-somethingr
the campus greatly needs," he said.
In the literary college, 11.9 per cent
of the Freshman class was asked to
withdraw on account of failures in1
scholarship, according to the report.
Of those asked to withdraw, 12 per
cent were deficient in foreign lan-
guages. Other figures which were pre-t
sented by Dean Effinger showed that
there is no present tendency among
the students at this University to at-t
tend a smaller institution for two
years and then come here. The real
tendency is to come here after one1
year at another institution.f
Preiedie Work Scored
Calling attention to the sharp dimi-
nution of enrollment between thet
Freshman and th Senior years in the
Medical school, Dean Hugh Cabot, of
that school, said that either the se-
lection of students is faulty or that
the premedical course as now plan-
ned is not an adequate preparation.(
At the present time it is not easy to
see any more satisfactory system than
the selection by the credit system, the
report continued. "The most serious.
stumbling block lies in the atmo-
sphere which surrounds the premedi-
cal work." The difference in the num-
ber of hours that a student carries
in his premedical work and his work
in the professional school causes a
sudden and unnatural transition when
the student first starts Ihis medical
studies. "I am struck by the fact,"
Dean Cabot said, "that the pressure
in most colleges is at the present time
too low for those who have made up
their minds to undertake the study of
medicine. I suspect that loose habits
of work are thereby fostered and that
to some extent the qu-ality of the pre-
medical work is antagonistic to medi-
cal work."
Fire Danger Seen
Attention was called by Dean
Henry M. Bates, of the Law school, to
the serious defects of the present law
building. "The building makes no
pretense to fireproof construction,
Dean "Sates said. It is supported al-
most entirely upon wooden beams and

joists, and it is already a question
whether the second and third floors5
are strong enough to bear the weight
now put upon them. That weight must
necessarily increase from year to year,
with the accumulation of books and
equipment and with a larger number
of persons using the building, as time
Rocs on."



Minnesota Botanist Explains Growth
Of Vegetation In Glacier
National Bay Area
Describing the vegetative and gla-
cial characteristics of Glacier National
bay, Prof. William S. Cooper of the
botany department of the university
of Minnesota spoke yesterday after-
noon in Natural Science auditorium
on "The Glacier National Bay Monu-
ment, Its Scenic and Scientific Fea-
tures." Professor Cooper explained
that the glacier completely filled the I
bay in 1794 and since then has re-
treated more than 60 miles. The
growth of vegetation as the ice re-
cedes, Professor Cooper stated, is
characterized first by the appearance
of herbs, then by shrubs, such as the
alder, and finally by tree seedlings
and forests.
These different stages in plant,
growth can be seen in the region of
Glacier bay, the. lecturer pointed out.
Colored lantern slides illustrated
scenes of fjords, cataracts, icebergs, I
and the vegetation in the Glacier Bay
region. Professor Cooper explained
that from the receding glaciers hun-
dreds of icebergs break off. Th'e ice,
he said, is indigo blue at first but
with exposure turns to white rapidly.
Professor Cooper showed pictures of
the vegetative remains which he
found as the present glacier receded.
Stumps of trees which were buried
under 3,000 feet of ice he has found
in a perfect state of preservation. Thej
forests, he said, were of spruce and,
The scenic beauties of the Glacier
National bay were shown by the slides.i
Professor Cooper stated that contraryj
to reports, Muir glacier, the discov-
ery of which by John Muir made the
region famous, was not "dead", but
that icebergs were constantly break-'
ing off from it. In the collection of
lantern slides was a picture of Rus-
sel island, in Glacier National Bay,
which was named in honor of Prof.
I. C. Russel, former head of the Uni-
versity geology department.
In his lecture last night, "Eight{
Days in the Desert", Professor Coop-
er told of an expedition to the Mexi-;
can desert which was made a year ago
under the supervision of the desert
laboratory at Tucson, Arizona. TheI
speaker showed different types of des-
ert vegetation, the creosote bush, mes-
quite and several- varieties of cactus.;
The lecture proper was illustrated
with slides while moving pictures of
the expedition were also shown.
