With the receiving o, a long ra-
diogram from Mt. Evans, the sta-
tion of the University Greenland
expedition, Prof. William Herbert
Hobbs of the geology, department,
director of the expeditions, at last
feels assured that communciation
with the winter staff of the expedi-
tion, Schneider and Carlson, will
be maintained through the new
radio operator, Carl Hansen, who'
arrived last Wednesday.
Hansen ,an operator of twelvej
years experience, was procured to
replace Baer who had become ill
with throat trouble and could not
remain at the station for the se-1
vere Greenland winter. Professor
Hobbs believed at first that
Schneider would be able to handle
the radio, but it was decided that
no chances of getting out of touch
with the station should be taken.
Schneider's messages during the
last few weeks have been failing
and much anxiety concerning thef
arrival of Hansen was felt.
The message from Hansen was
very satisfactory.. It told of his
arrival by dog-sled after a trip to
Holsentensborg from |Copenhagen

Under the new regulations in-
stituted ,this year, Rhodes scholars
are appointed for two years with
the option of a third year at an
annual stipend of 400 pounds. In-
tellectual attainments, character,
leadership, and interest in sports
determine the choice.
Scholars just elected will begin
study in October, 1929. Three hun-
dred and ninety-eight candidates,
each selected to represent his col-
lege or university, contested the 32
scholarships this year. None were
elected from Michigan, this being
the year when Michigan is excepted.

of the most communicable of di-
seases. While we do not know all
the facts as to how it is spread, we
assume that it is largely spread by
