HOPKINS LISTED
SEMINARS TO BE HELD
Theory Discussions Will Be Given
in Addition to Regular Courses
Already Announced
In addition to the courses in
physics regularly announced for
the Sumer Session of 1929, this year
a symposium on theoretical physics
will be conducted. Well known Eu-
ropean physicists and lecturers have
been obtained to conduct the-lec-
tures and seminars for the course.
Prof. E. A. Milne, who is Rouse
Ball profesor of mathematics at
Oxford University, will come to
Mfichigan especially to conduct lec-
tures and discussions on problems
in. astrophysics. "These will include
thermodynamic methods, theory of
formation of absorption lines, Saha's
theory, Eddington theory of stellar
interiors, and the significance of
radiation pressure. He will also lec-
ture upon the "Vector and Tensor
Methods in Statics and Dynamics."
.May Professors Secured
Prof K. F. Herzfeld of physics at
Johns Hopkins will speak on sta-
tistical mechanics, dealing princi-
pally with thermodynamics, and
fluctuation and Brownian move-
ments, and also the new statistics.
Prof. Leon Brillouin of the Uni-
versity of Paris will also make a
special trip to thiscountry in order
to speak for this symposium. He
will lecture on quantum statistics,
which will include Sommerfeld's
theory of metals and recent work
on metallic conduction.
Of particular interest is the part
in this series of Dr. P. A. M. Dirac,
fellow of St. John's college, Cam-
bridge University, who has included
Michigan on the itinerary of his
tour of America this summer. His
lectures will be a continuation of
those of Edward Condon, assistant
professor of physics at Princeton,
who will give an introduction to
quantum mechanics, dealing chiefly
with DeBroglie waves, wave me-
chanics and their relation to class-
ical mechanics, statistical interpre-
tation and the uncertainty princi-
pIe, degeneracy in spectra, and ra-
dioactive disintegration. Dr. Dirac'sI
lectures will supplement these by a
discussion of advanced quantumj
mechanics, especialy theqgeneral'
transformation the.ory with deduc-
tion of the wave equation, the ap-
plication to collisions and emission
and absorption, and the quantiza-
tion of the electromagnetic field,

and also the relativity theory of
the electron.
David M. Dennison, assistant pro-
fessor of physics, will offer a spe-
cial discussion of band spectra.
As a suppleemnt to the formal
lectures, groups will be formed for
the discussion of special subjects
chosen both from the theoretical
lectures and from allied problems.
These discussional meetings will be
conducted by symposurn lecturers.
Announcement has already been

Frayer Talks On Roman Question;
State Religion Discussed
Before Student Group
ENDS SERIES OF TALKS
Recent developments resulting
from the treaty signed a short time
ago between the Pope and Musso-
lini, as well as the history of this
ancient controversy furnished the
subject for a lecture on "The Set-
tlement of the Roman Question"
given by Prof. William A. Frayer
yesterday afternoon in room 103 of
the Romance language building.
Professor Frayer first outlined
briefly the course of events that led
up to the break between the Italian
government and the Papalcy, limit-
ing his discussion to the more mod-
ern phase of the question dealing
with the period from. 1848 until
today.
The concordat signed by the two
dignitaries was explained, and cer-
tain points such as, the establish-
ment of the Roman Catholic faith
as the state religion, the provisions'
in the treaty for special telephonic
and telegraphic communications,
and for aeroplane transportation
and radio broadcasting, and the
important experiment of installing
canon law in the state, were com-
mented upon.
The letcure was the last of a
series of talks sponsored by the
Italian club of the University.

A second attempt to blow up a
former mechanical foreman in an
Elizabethton, Tenn., textile plant,
but now out on strike, failed when
the man chanced to be away from
home as it was dynamited by un-
known hands. His wife and child
were also away at the time visiting
friends. View shows a wreckage

rowly saved his life when he re-
moved a lighted fuse from a stick
of dynamite hurled into his autoj
as he was driving home from a
strikers' meeting. The use of the
home as a secret meeting place of
the Elizabethton textile union led
to the bombing and denotes the

Dr. Newburgh has been occupied
the greater part of the past year
in investigating the relative merits
of vegitarian, meat or mixed diet,
and the value of each has been
studied through observation of its
effect on several volunteer patients.
He will illustrate the talk with
slides made during his recent re-
search.

ogy and were chosen the Friday
before vacation. A maximum lim-
it of 7500 words has been set by

ter Goodrich is in charge. The

Some University Student Will Receive
"Perpetual Motion Engine" Next Month

A self-winding wrist watch- ar
"perpetual motion'' watch thatI
winds itself - somewhat on the1
principle of the pedometer, is to be
given free to a student at the1
University of Michigan next month,
according to an announcement of
a prominent New York watch man-
ufacturing company.
According to this statement, the+
new era of perpetual motion has
at last dawned.rTheproblem that
has confronted scientists and in-
ventors for so long a time has at
last been solved-in the form of a
comparatively simple device.
Tests have proved that the self-
winding watch is an accurate, de-
pendable timepiece-possibly even
more accurate than the ordinary
stem-winder.
All students at the University are
invited to compete in the contest1
to obtain a free watch. Each is

requested to write an advertising
headline, in ten words or less, suit-
able for an advertisement featur-t
ing the self-winding watch, and the
student from the University sub-'
mitting the best headline will re-'
ceive this startling new invention.
Headlines sent to The Daily of-
fice will be forwarded to the con-
cern making the offer.
