of Experiments Tomorrow
at Washington.
Prof. George G. Brown, of the
Chemical Eigineering department
will leave Ann Arbor late today for
Washington, D.C., where he will be
busy tomorrow and -Friday with re-
ports of his sub-committee of the
American Society for Testing Ma-
terials.
Professor Brown has been leading
in the experiments being made in
the university to determhie the
specifications of motor fuels which
will not be subject to the difficulty
known to automotive engineers as
"vapor lock."
"Vapor lock" is the condition
which exists when gasoline vapor-
izes fi the feed line thus momen-
tarily stopping the fuel flow to the
carburetor and causing the engine
to miss fire. At times "vapor lock"
actually prevents the motor from
working.
Through his recent investigations
Professor Brown has determined
exactly the specifications under
which fuel manufacturers should
produce gasoline so that it will not
vaporize at the high temperatures
in the feed -line during operation
and will still vaporize at low tem-
peratures often encountered in the
carburetor when starting the engine
in cold weather.
ProfessorBrown will be busy Fri-
day reporting his findings as a
member of a sub-committee on
natural gas which will be in joint
session with members of the Society
of Automotive Engineers and thes
American Petroleum Institute.
He will return to Ann Arbor late
Saturday.

Modern Surveyors
Are Very Accurate,
Declares Johnston
Modern surveyors can now meas-
ure lengths accurate to one part in
5,000,000, according to Prof. C. T.
Johnston of the civil engineering
department, who has been active
in surveying for the past forty.
y'ears.
"If a surveyor were to measure a
length of 100 miles, he could get
it accurate to within two feet. In
order to achieve this precision, it'
is necessary for observations to be
taken at night, because in the day-.
time the varying densities of thel
air make the optical methods that,
are employed unreliable,",'Profes-1
sor Johnston said.
Prof. C. 0. Carey, also of the
civil engineeringadepartment, and
Prof. Johnston will travel to New
York next week to the meeting of
the American Society of Civil En-
gineers to present/reports of the
committees of which they are
chairmen. Prof. Johnston, who is
chairman of the comimittee on
boundary survey will present what
has been characterized as a pioneer
piece of work in preparing stand-
ard specifications for boundary sur-
vey work. Professor Carey,as
chairman of his committee, wilf
give a report on outlining the pro-
cedure for the extension of trian-
gular networks.

DETROIT AUTO EXH
COMFORT, IMPR
Radical Changes in Designs Are
Shown; Streamlining Is
Prevalent.
Radical changes in design, in-
creased comfort for drivers and
general improvements in engineer-
ing feature the 1932 automobile
models on display this week during
the Detroit Auto Show in Conven-
tion Hall.
Streamlining, which includes
slanting windshields, lower slung
bodies, and rounded ' corners is
present to a greater or lesser de-
gree in virtually all the new mod-
els, condemning the former square
built autos to obsoleteness.
Wind resistence has so been cut
down by the streamliningbinnova-
tions that the gasoline saving at
speeds above forty miles per hour
has become an actual selling point
for the new cars. One manufac-
turer has utilized streamlining
principles to such an extent that
'the front fenders are -rounded out
in the rear of the wheels to form
a semi-circle background to the

(BIT FEATURES
OVEMENTS IN CARS
Radiators of the "V" type which
appeared on a few cars last year
are very' much in evidence in the
new models. Many of these. radia-
tors like the windshields slant back-
ward at the top in an effort tobhar-
monize them with the rest of the
car. All of the new cars are fitted
with one type or another of radia-
tor grill or screen chromium plated
in most instances, but occasionally
painted the same color as the car.
This year's models will be some-
whatlower in overall height, prin-
cipally because manybuilders are
now mounting car bodies on brack-
ets rivited to the side of chasis
frames instead of on top of the
frame side members. This meth-
od of mounting makes it' possible
to also decrease the width of the
splash apron which connects the
lower edger of the body with the
inside edge of the running board.

COLUMBUS, Ohio. Jan. 19.-The
ambitions of Lester D. Woodford,
Engr.-2 in the field of airplane
rocket propulsion, have gained na-
tion wide recognition through an
article which appeared in the Lan-
tern recently.
Woodford's story of his plans to
reach the moon by means of roc-
kets was sent all over, the country.
The New York Times obtained a
personal interview Wednesday.
'Various people have sent inquir-
ies, home merely asking questions,
while others are desirous of accom-
panying him through space.,
Woodford hopes that such pub-
licity as he gets will some day bring
with it a general confidence in his
enterprise.

pletes the list of. the remaining
speakers for the currentr series.
John B. Kennedy, associate edir

Jan. 27. Winston Churchill, British
