Mirror of Pyrex Glass Is Only
Part of New Instrument 1
Not Built Here.

niversity Observatory Anong
B Eest Equipped Stations
in United States.
Professor W. C. Rufus of the Uni-
versity Observatory department has
amnounced that the new reflecting
teescope is about ready to assem-
ble and install in the Angell Hall
observatory, although it will not be
set for use until some time this
A mirror made of the famous
Pyrex glass is the only part of this
new machine that was not built in
the observatory shop. This mirrorj
is fifteen inches in diameter, and
the delicate grinding and polishing
of the surface was done by Fecker
,of ' Pittsburgh, successor to the
Brashear Company who furnished
the mirror for the larger reflecting
telescope now in the observatory.
Parts Designed Here.
The remainder of the parts were
designed and made in the oserv-
atory shop. Everything about this
new machine has been wholly com-
plated and the telescope is now
ready for assembly. The mirror,
the finest piece of mechanism toe
have ever been installed in a Ui-
versity instrument, arrived but a
few days ago, and although the
,,achine will not be mounted fore
some time, the assembly of thez
parts wi-ll take place at once.
This new addition to the Angell.
HEall Observatory will give two
telescopes to this section of the
Astronomy department, the other
being a ten inch refracting tele-.
scope that has been the only in-
,strument installed to date on top
of the literary building. Since twov
domes were built when the observ-
atory was established, there will be.
adequate space for the installation
of this new telescope, and it will
jnake the Angell Hall laboratory1
one of the most fully equipped of
its kind in the country.
Is of Latest Design.
This new instrument has taken
over a year and a half to build
and is of the most efficient andI
of latest design. It will be the sec-
ond reflecting machine to be used
by the University astronomy de-
partment and its operation this fall
will give many students an oppor-
tunity for good observations, be-
fore made difficult due to te large;
number enrolled in the courses.

Purchases New Cathode
COST MORE TAN $4000
Prof. Benjamin F. Bailey. of the
electrical engineering department,1
announcecd yesterday the purchase
rf a cathode ray oscillograph by
the U.iversity for experimental'
purpo~se. The apparatus, whichw
2ost more than $,,Q00, was pur- I
chased from the General Electric
company, and is -the latest of its
typ° on the market.
Measuring the speed of the pas-
sage of an elcctric current, espe-
cially in arcs, and obtaining pho-
tographs of curcnt passage are a
few of the functons of the new
oscillograph, which can measure
wave intervals up to and exceed-
ing one ten millionth of a second.
The older apparatus, in use before
the purchase of the new device,
was capable of measuring speeds
. near one hundred thousandth of a
second, Professor Bailey stat cd.
For the past month, the elec-
trical engineering department has
been conducting a series of ex-
h periments to measure the speed of
current passing through arcs, withj
the aid of apparatus loaned by the
Detroit Edison company for the
purpose. The tests were conduct-
