the coast guard- destroyer Paulding

lditor's Note: This is the nineteenth of
a series of feature articles on campus in-
stitutions intended to (develop their his-
tory and major principles or organization
and management.
"To truly and honestly demean
themselves in the practice of a bar-
r'ster according to the best of their
knowledge and ability" was , the re-
quirement laid down by the founders
of Barristers when for the first time
there appeared on this campu's an
honorary senior law society, accord-
ing to the rolls of that organization.
The group of,. charter members organ-

1903 by the then junior class as to the
place of 'an honorary society in the

its original statement, and the organ-
ization has changed very little since
its founding as far as its functions
and purpose are concerned. During
the year the members of the society
meet for luncheon in the lawyer's
club every other week. At these meet-
ings from time to time a faculty man
addresses the group; sometimes an
outside speaker of note appears at the
meetings; and frequently studIent
papeis on subjects of mutual interest
to the members of Barristers are
pre-sented and discussed.
For the carrying out the social partr
of the purpose as stated, the society

PHYSICIST TALKS
ON NEWTHEORIES,
Speaking on' "Some Introductory
Problems on Wave Mechanics," Dr. G.
E. Uhlenbeck, an international author-
ity in the field of theoretical physics,
declared yesterday noon while ad-
dressing an audience in room 1041
East Physics' building that matter has
both the properties of particles and
of waves. Theoretical 'and experi-
mental evidence indioates that the
electron, which is the primary par-
ticle of matter, has a wave character
and may be thought to possess charac-
teristics similar to light, the speaker
stated.
Dr. Ublenbeck, who comes' from the
University of Leiden, Holland, and
,who has been engaged in research
work here for the past year, has been
working with other scientists through-
cut the world to formulate this new
theory, which is only a year old. HI
won world renown several years ago!
when he and Dr. S. Goudsmit, of
Holland, who is also doing research
work here, developed the theory that
the electron is a sphere with a 'spin.
This theory clarified many matters
that had puzzled physicists for years.
