Dean Goodnight Says 'Badger'
Annual Not Overcharging
and Mismanaged.


(Secial to The Daily)'
MADISON, Wis., Jan. 12.-Charges
of graft and mismanagement in the
,. administraton of the Wisconsin
Badger, yearbook at the University
of Wisconsin, which appeared in an
editorial in the Wisconsin Engineer
entitled "Campus Rackets" are un-
warranted and ought to be given
a decent denial, according to a
statement made by Dean of Men
Scot H. Goodnight *t the request
of Gerhard Becker, '32, business
n'anager of the annual.
The offending editorial, which
read, "Perhaps there is a reason
why former editors.and mn-nagers
blossom forth in new clothes, ex-
tended tours, an improved trans-
portation after a year's service,"
wad attackling a charge of $40 per
page made by the Badger on stu-
dent activities which wish to
appear in what is supposed to be a
representative survey of the year
at the university. The production
of this page gosts about $20, esti-
mates the engTneer-
Denying the charge,s B e c k e r
wrote Goodnight and thl editor of
the Engineer. The dean, in his
comment, pointed out faculty wit-
nessing of appropriations for salary
and bonuses, and also tle possibili-
ty of no recompense this year be-
cause of business conditions.
Columbus Experiment Shows
That Many Humans Suffer
bTaste Blindness.'
(Big Ten News Service)
COLUMBUS, Ohio, Jan. 12-Using
the recently discovered fact that
some humans are "taste blind" just
as others are color blind, scientists
at the Ohio State 4Jniversity are
seeking to unravel part of the mys-
Jtery of heredity in man. If enough
simple factors m heredity can be
found the way will be open, they
believe, to predict when a child is
born what diseases it can have and
which ones-it will be apt to escape
in late life.
Some months ago, Dr. Arthur L.
Fo , , of the du Pont laboratories,
reprted finding that certain per-
sons were unable to taste a syn-
thetic: substance known as para-
ethoxy-phenylthio-urea. Exceed-
ngly bitte&r to the tongues of those
able to .taste it, Dr. Fox found that
about 40 persons in 100 were unable
to taste it at all.
Learning of the discovery, Dr.
Laurence H. Snyder of the depart-
ment of zoology and entomology
obtained some of the compound to
investigate the possible inheritance
of this taste deficiency. So far he
has tested about 400 families with
this compound and with its first
cousin di-ortho-tolyl-thio-urea. The
former substance occurs in white
crystals and looks like sugar, while
the later resembles povidered sugar.

ozone. The purpose of the experi-
ment, which is the only one of its
kind being carried on in the Unit-
ed States, is to determine the value
of ozone in the preservation and
storage of apples, and its super-
iority or inferiority to the common
cold storage method. This is the
third year that the study has been
in progress.
The experimenut is based upon
the property of the gas to affect
the respiration of the apples, and/
is being conducted in cooperation
with a manufacturer of ozone gen-
erating apparatus. The concentra-
tion of ozone is only about one
part in ten million parts of air,
and because such a small amount
is needed, ninety percent of the
ozone generated is discarded with-
out ever being used.
