Science has succeeded in throw- s
ing light on problems, which would 9
otherwise have remained unsolved,3
by the use of the x-ray, said Dr.i
Lars Thomassen, assistant profes-1
sor of chemical engineering, yes-
terday afternoon over the Univer-
sity-of-the-Air program. X-rays+
have also greatly benefitted medical:
science, said Dr. Thomassen.
p "One of the most important ap
plications for radiography," said
Dr. Thomassen, "is in the study of
defect in metals, especially in cast
and welded materials." The basis
for technical radiography is the
difference in absorption of rays be-
tween two or more substances.
Ins the process of casting, holes
or porosities frequently result inI
the object cast. 'When this object
is x-rayed, these porosities show up
as black spots.,

welding is becoming more and more
important, and the easiest and
most convenient way of checking
up on the quality of a weld is to
take an x-ray picture of it," Dr.
Thomassen stated. "This becomes
the more important as the quality,
especially of manual welds, is very
much dependent upon the skill and
thoroughness of the individual
"Ra diographic examinations of
each casting and each weld produc-
ed is justified only in few cases,"
Dr. Thomassen continued. "One
such case is when human lives de-
pend directly on the quality of the
work, as in aeroplane manufact-
ure." The cost of this 100 per cent
inspection for ordinary work is too
expensive, Dr. Thomassen stated.
It is therefore generally limited to
experimental work.
X-rays are also used in the in-
vestigation of structure matter, Dr.
Thomassen said. "These investiga-
tions are extremely Important, be-
cause they furnish us with a defin-
ite conception of what matter
would look like when magnified one

Feminists Prepare
to Secure Passage
of Cable Measure
WASHINGTON, Jan. 7.-(i)-Ar-1
dent feminists rallied at the capitol
today around a proposal to- com-
plete sex equality in citizenship.
The final section of a bill. by Kep-
resentative Cable of Ohio, was their
pride and joy. It said:
"Hereafter there shall be no dis-
tinction based on sex in the lawy
and practice relating to nationality
citizenship a n d naturalization-
any right now enjoyed by one sex
shall be equally available to the
other under like circumstances."'
The feminists have been fighting
many years to get the lawmakers
to say that.
Miss Maud Younger, veteran leg-
islative chairman of the National
Woman's party, led the group call-
ed before today's house immigra-
tion committee hearing on this bill.
She was assisted by Mrs. Burnita
Shelton Matthews, attorney of the

sought in raising the average agc

"I am not at all concerned by the
fact that our freshmen seem to b,
getting younger and younger. In
my belief it is much easier to edu-
cate a boy of 17 years and orientate
him in the University than it is to
work with a man of 24 or 25 years
who has, perhaps, attended schools
of a radically different type, mak-
ing it necessary to overcome estab-

the older man is usually more set-

In a lengthy discussion of the
Chicago Plan, formulated by Presi-
dent Robert M. Hutchins, of Chi-
cago University, President Ruthven
declared that the University of
Michigan had the comprehensive
examination, under which the stu-
dent is examined periodically on all
the work covered in his entire col-
lege career, as early as 1840. A-
though admitting that that system
of examination is feasible in cer-
tain cases, he stated that he would
be against reinstating it in all de-
partments of the University.
Regarding the policy of the Uni-
versity to take executive charge of
many student activities, such at
athletics, President Ruthven point-
ed out that in the majority of case.
in which University boards havf
been established, for the\purpose o
directing the activities of variou
e student groups, the action has beet
e taken at the direct request, of th'
students involved.
