portant business when the proposed
plan for changing the present city
rates because of necessary im-
provements in the water system,
will be discussed. The department
also plans to connect the dead-end
mains in, the city.
Routine work is scheduled for

logy department.
Demorest, assistant to William
S. Carlson in charge' of the Univer-
sity geological expedition to Green-
land, wrote the letter August 10 at
Godhaven. He speaks very highly;
of the hospitality of the Eskimos
and especially of Magister Olsen,
a physicist, at whose home they re-
mained temporarily. Olsen's work
there is under the celebrated Dane,
La Cour, and is to determine the
characteristics of the magnetic
field in this region.
Conducted Through Lab.

Michigan Federation of Labor, will
discussthe proposed Old Age Pen-
sion bill which will come before

Red Arrow is a coopera ive, good-will program which is being sponsored by
twenty-four rei able Ann Arbor business firms, representing various lines.
They call themselves the Red Arrow Club of Ann Arbor, and during this
year's program, will give away to their customers approximately $30,000.00 in
Fine Merchandise and Gold. The Gold will be given only to Churches and other
Civic Organizations. The Merchandise will be given to individuals who save Red
Arrow Money which is issued only by the Red Arrow Stores.
EACH MONTH THERE IS HELD A

Demorest says that Carlson and
he were conducted through Olsen's
observatory and had everything ex-
plained to them. Way down in a
deep cellar whose walls are insul-
ated to keep the temperature con-
stant through summer and winter,
are two sets of apparatus, one to
measure the vertical, and one the
horizontal components of the mag-
netic field.
This room is also kept dark so
that a photographic graph of the
variations can be made. This is
accomplished by means. of a small
light which flashes each minute
and whose rays are reflected from
a mirror on each magnet to a pho-
tographic plate. A very accurate
clock, which has lost but one sec-
ond in the last five years, is the
heart of the whole system for it
sets off, automatically, each of the
various timing devices throughout
the laboratory.
Scenery Is Beautiful
More easily understood is the
beautiful scenery about Godhaven
and the novelty of its barrenness,
says Demorest. The harbor which
is a long angular cut that once
severed a small island from the
main land and is now choked at
the east end, is lined on the north
with great steep bluffs reaching
2,000 feet. The face of these cliffs,
except one or two sloping valleys
where a little grass grows, are al-
most perpendicular and entirely
broken by frost so that the lower
part is but a pile of rock and grav-
el which has fallen from the upper
portion.
Due to weathering the whole
cliffs are beautifully, though con-
servatively colored in shades of
brown and red. Except for a few
buildings along the shore, all of the
dwellings are built on large, flat
rock, and one must virtually climb
from one place to another.

Secretary of Agriculture Urges
Congress Use 1932 Money.
(By Associated Press)
WASHINGTON, Oct. 18. -- Plans
of Seeretary Arthur M. Hyde to
request Congress to make 1932 al-
lotments of Federal aid money for
highway construction immediately
available to provide emergency em-
ployment in drouth states were
announced today by H. S. Fair-
banks, assistant to the chief of the
Bureau of Public Roads.
Fairbanks said the drouth states
also had large unexpended sums of
appropriations made for previous
fiscal years which they could spend
toward road construction between
now and July 1, 1931, when the
1932 allotments ordinarily would be
available.
Although Dr. C. W. Warburton,
secretary of the National Drouth
Relief Committee, had advised for-
mer Gov. Harry F. Byrd of Virginia
that the 1932 allotments already
had been made available, it was
explained by Comptroller-General
J. R. McCarl that no appropriation
made for a fiscal year could be
spent until that fiscal year unless
Congress specifically made it avail-
abie at a prior date.
The apportionment of the 1932
allotments to states was announced
by Secretary Hyde in August to
permit the states to make con-
tracts against the sums that they
were thereby assured of receiving
after July l, 1931.

MALE QUARTET TO SING
On the air at 10 o'clock Monday
evening over stations WABC and
WXYZ, the Robert Burns Panatela
program featuring Guy Lombardo,
and his Royal Canadians, will be
broadcast in dedication to Michi-
gan. Appearing with Lombardo is
a well known male quartet who will
sing Michigan songs. A special fea-
ture by the "Lady in the Smoke"
will conclude the program of Uni-
versity tunes.
Lombardo and his Canadians
have leapt from obscurity to nation-
wide prominence within the past
few short years, swinging into pop-
ularity with an individualistic slow
tempo rhythm that is distinctly
their own. Of the many catchy
songs introduced and carried made
famous byrLombardo "St. Louis
Blues" is perhaps the most famous.
Lombardo started as an orchestra.
leader 13 years agoawhen, with the
same personnel that is with him
today, he organized a high school
orchestra in Ontario. They played
for high school functions, minor so-
cial engagements, dances, and for
troops in training. Larger profes-
sional engagements followed on the
radio and today they are known
from coast to coast by radio listen-
ers.
Requests for the songs to be used
on the program were sent in to
University officials early in the
year. All of the songs listed for the
program are well known campus
and football tunes.

on the lowest priced article will be used; therefore only one Auction Article can be secured by a person at
each Auction.

from any Red Arrow Place may be used to pay any lbid. (It is used collectively).
