Prof. Stephen S. Attwood, of the

cu~sed "Ligh1tnng" yesterday over

"In April 1926 three fires in Cal-

disturbances on power lines of the
electric companies.
Electric utility comipanies, saidl
Professor Attwvood, are most con-
cearned abou~t the destructive effects
of ~lgtning. Whien lightning hits ,
a, trajnsmnission line, the v~ltage
surges many timges higher than 'the
ordinary operating voltage. "These
comrpanies have found that by
placing a ground wire on top of
the transmission line towers, and
connecting the three operating
wires to the 'ground through light-1
ning arresters, the damage im ay
be greatly reduced or often prac-
ticaly eliminated.

householder should remain away,l
as much as possible, from. the e ec-

Profsor Attwood warned. "The
on~ly absolutely safe place during a.
storm," he said, "is antundergroundl

NA TION SURVEY SHOWS STUDENTS1
IN FAVOR OF HIGH DISARM4JAENT

~tudn topinion on disarmamnnct,
as indicated by a survey taken by
the Intercollegiate Disarmament
council in '70 colleges, favors to a
high degree reduction and to some
extent the complete abolishment of
war instruments.
In an article in this week's. Na-
tion, the report indicates that 'of
24,345 students voting, 92, per centl
favored in general terms the re-
duction of armament and 63 per
cent "urged independent disarmia-
ment by the United States without,
waiting for other countries." One
'out of every seveni replying advo-
cated 100 per cent independent
disarmament.
Voting on the question of colleg-
iate military training, says the ar-
ticle, "balloting is consistently anti-
war, 81 per cent opposing compul-

sory drill -and 38 per cent in our
judgmnent a remarkably high pro-I
Portion--desiring the abolition of
military training altogether in all
colleges.
"What effect this veritable cry
for peace will have on the faculties
qf our colleges and universities re-
,mains to be seen. Official boards,
trustees, and presidents, though
usually in favor of peace, often
"have a way of disregarding the
wishes of their students when these
depart from tradition or run count-
er to the ambition of vested mili-
tary interests to use youth for their
own purposes. But we are hopeful
that this poll may stimulate teach-
ers, especially, to keep on courage-
ously with their task of freeing
their institutions from the clutches
of war ideology."
