Rkv. Merle Anderson Calls Dry
Law a Test of American
Democracy's Life.




Claims Eighteenth Amendment
Is Not an Experiment, But
Only Solution.
Continued war on the anti-pro-
hibition forces and upon the men
whose brains "do not function whe
somebody mentions prohibition,"
was urged Sunday by the Rev. Mer
H. Anderson in his morning sermo,.
at the First Presbyterian (aurchl.
"Prohibition is a test of our deo
mocracy," he said. "Our w o ri d
statesmen have, from the begin-
ning, prophesied that some day
democratic government would end
in a dictatorship or in chaos. Once
again some are saying that demo-
cratic government is drifting on the
reef of inability to enforce its own
laws because of the lack of loyalty
and patriotism of its own citizens."
Is Only Solution.
The eighteenth amendment is not
an experiment, he claimed, and
stated that it was the result of
4,000 years of experiment with dif-
ferent methods of liquor control.
"It is the ultimate and only soiu-
tion of the problem," he stated.
"The balloons of anti-prohibition
gas will be effectively punctured*
and completely deflated, just as
soon as the American people wake
up to the fact that they have been
allowing themselves to be made1
fools of by a little but loud minority
who are actuated by selfish preju-
dice, by personal appetite, or by
financial greed."
At the First Methodist Episcopal
church, the Rev. Dr. Frederick B.
Fisher spoke on "Virtue."
Names Five Rules.
"B3e a slave to the future," hie
urged and suggested five rules that
would leave to virtue, enumerating
among them the choice of friends,
the expulsion of morbid and in-
herited fears and the intelligent
training of the sense organs as the
instruments of an inward and bet-
ter culture.
At the evening service at the
Episcopal church, Mrs. Fisher spoke
on "Modern China's Christian Pres-
ident," and prophecied a great fu-
'ture for the country under the di-
rection of their converted president,
Chiang Kai Chek, who, she claims,
'will dive great impetus to the work
of the church.
As the first of a series of sermons
dealing in a critical way with the
whole problem of the church today
which will be preached before Re-
ligious Emphasis week, the Rev. H.
P. Marley spoke Sunday on "What's
Wrong with Catholicism?"
He explained "that the art of
criticising the church is a favorite
indoor sport, but few are qualified
tO do it.

Wind Tunnel a
in Aeronauti

Department Finds Determination
of Stability Resistance
Important Helps.
By Brainard W. Nies.

Flying stability, lifting power, and
wind resistance are among the im-
portant factors concerning aero-
plane performance which can be
determined experimentally in the
wind tunnel of the aero-dynamics
laboratory of the aeronautical en-
gineering department. Since the
apparatus has been in operation,
the department has conducted nu-
merous tests on the operating char-
acteristics of aeroplanes both for
several large manufacturers of avi-
ation equipment, and as a part of
its own program of research and
The wind tunnel is the feature of
the aerodynamics laboratory, and
it ranks as one of the finest and
best-equipped of the few which ex-
ist in the country. It was included
in the design of East Engineering
building, and was built as an inte-
gral part of the basement of the
south wing, but at that time funds
were not immediately available for
the completion of the project with
the installation of the woodwork
and the necessary electrical equip-,
ment. Financial aid received from1
the Guggenheim fund helped mate-
rially to speed the work.
This particular wind tunnel is
known as the "Venturi-tube double-
return type, with Eiffel chamber,"
but in spite of its somewhat formi-
dable name there is nothing es-
pecially complicated about its con-
struction or operation. It is essen-
tially an apparatus to provide a
controlled air-stream or wind in a
large tube so arranged that models,
usually of aeroplanes, can be placed
conveniently in the air-stream and
the effects upon them observed.
The wind tunnel consists of a
large central tube, eight feet and
more in diameter, with a propellor
situated toward one end. Outside
of this, on each side, are two small-
er tubes through which the air re-
turns to the opposite end, forming
a continuous channel. Halfway
along its length, the large tube is
interrupted by the Eiffel chamber,
