Old Members Asked to Return
for Commencement Week
Invitations have been sent out
for a first annual reunion of the
Varsity Glee club, according to an
announcement yesterday at the
Alumni association office.
All old members of the glee club
have been asled to return to a gen-
eral reunion, the first of its kind,
on Commencement weekend, June
19 to 23.
The idea has evolved as the re-
sponse to an article in the Michi-
gan Alumnus of Jan. 31, by Earl
Peters, entitled "The Glee Club
Goes A'Journeying." Many reminis.-
cent letters from old glee club
members were evoked by this arti- i
cle, and the reunion was suggested.
It is planned to have a banquet
at which old quartets will sing, and
then have the old glee clubs aid in
the general alumni sing Friday
night on. the steps of Angell hall.
Among the glee club graduates
who have already signed up for the
reunion are Judge Robert Thomp-
son, Rossiter Cole, Jack Hibbard,
John A. Jameson, George J. Wag-
goner, H. P. Dodge, and John B.

Physicists Contribute
to Scientific Review
Two members of the faculty of
the physics department have col-I
laborated on an article for the May
issue of the Physical Review, it was
announced yesterday.
Prof. Samuel A. Gaudsmit and
Russel A. Fisher have written an
article for the magazine entitled
"Hyperfine Structure in Ionized
Bismuth," after a careful study in
the laboratories here.
The 21-foot, 8,000-line concave
grating, mounted in the third base-
ment of the laboratory was used in
determining data used in the arti-
cle. A method which facilitates the
analysis of partially resolved line
patterns is also described by Fisher
and Professor Gaudsinit.

Duncan Stewart, graduate stu-
dent of geology and mineralogy, will
make a study of the rock speci-

ity of the south pole by Prof. Law-
rence Gould, geologist and second
in command of the Byrd Antarctic
expedition, it was announced yes-
terday by Prof' W. F. Hunt, of the
division.of petrography.
. Stewart was one of the student
.geologists who accompanied Prof.
W. H. Hobbs on his Greenland ex-
pedition in 1928, and was one of
the two men to rescue Hassel and
Cramer, the American aviators who
were forced down on the inland ice
of the region.
Brougit 74 Trays of Rock.
Gould brought back 74 trays of
spemimens from the Rockefeller
and Queen Maud mountains. The
Queen Maud mountains are about
300 miles from the pole, and the
Rockefeller range is on the north-
east side of the Bay of Whales
where the expedition base was lo-
cated. Gould made the trip to
Queen Maud mountainsi by dog-
sled, and the trip to the Rockefel-
ler range by airplane.
Most of the rocks are varieties of
granite, sandstone, diabase and
pegmatites. Each specimen will be
e x a m i n e d -;icroscopically and
chemically, their nature considered
in comparision with Gould's field
notes, and also with the previous
descriptions of the geology of the
region as published by Shackel-
ton, Scot and Nordenskjold.
To Study Relationship.
The specimens will also be com-
pared, if possible, with types of
rocks from South America and Aus-
tralia. In this way it is hoped to
discover if the different parts of the
Antarctic continent are similar be-
neath the thick sheet of ice that
covers. all but the mountain tops.
