CAMBRIDGE, Mass., Feb. 24.-(AP)
--The first extensive measurements
of the sizes of fog particles have,
been announced by the Massachu-
setts Institute of Technology.
These measurements, never before
obtained, may reveal some new pos-
sibilities in the use of colors to ren-
der signals visible at greater dis-
tances in fogs:
The particles are from two twen-
ty-five hundredths of an inch in
diameter down to one twenty-five
The smallest are only a little
greater in diameter than the wave
length of red light.
In scientific measure they are
from one to 20 microns.
Fog Particles 'Trapped*.
They are measured much like
stars in a night sky by a microscope
arranged by Henry G. Houghton, at
the institute's Round Hill experi-
mental station on the estate of Col.
E. H. R. Green.
This microscope focuses on a flat
glass side across which the fog
drifts. Slightly greased, the glass
slir'rsace catches the particles ads fly
paper traps insects.
On the glass are ruled fine lines
of the micron scale. The light is so
S'-ed tnat it illuminates the fog
and the scale but leaves the glass
dark.
Like Moons and Stars.
The effect is like having a night
sky ruled with lines (the magnified

micron scale) and sprinkled with
moons of various sizes and big, fat
stars.
The diameters are read at a
glance by looking at the lines on or
between which the star-like fog
droplets lie.
One hundred or more fog parti-
cles can be measured in 10 minutes.
It is found that every fog has
particles of many sizes, but that
one size usually predominates. This
predominant size, however, changes
with different fogs.
Light Pen'etration Varies.
As the particles increase in size
the best light transmission shifts
more and more to red. In fogs of
very small particles green light is
superior.
In the majority of fogs it has
been found that colored lights have
no appreciable advantages as re-
gards fog-penetration.
Fog cannot form in perfedtly
clear air. There must be particles
of some sort upon which the mois-
ture can gather. These particles
are dust of various kinds.
Most sea fogs are caused by in-
visible grains of salt whipped into
the air from spray -particles so
fine that opce free of the water
they float in air indefinitely.
Strangely enough, humidity in
fogs is not always 100 per cent.
There is one reading of 90 per cent
during a Round Hill fog.
Television Received
on Speeding Express
IONDON, Feb. 24-(iP)-Television:
re:eption on a speeding express
train has been attempted success-
fully.
, A television receiver was installed
on one of the fast British trains
and the normal broadcast through
the Brookmans Park B. B4 C. sta-
tion was tuned in.
Images were reproduced almost
as-well as under normal conditions.
At times the train reached a speed
of 70 miles per hour.

MAGDEBURG. Geribany, Feb. 24.
-(A')-A new figure has appeared
among the "generals" of Germany's
militant organisations and in him
staunch republicans believe they
have found a match for the mili-
taht fascist leader, Adolf Hitler.
He is Karl Hoeltermann, new
head of Germany's vast republican
"army of peace," the reichsbanner.
He* is a powerful factor, too, in
the "Iron Front," the movement de-
signed to pep up republican ranks
and recruit a reserve force for the
"schufo," or reichsbanner "storm
troops."
Hoeltermann's task is primarily)
that of "field marshal." The politi-
cal end is attended to by repub-
licans like Paul Loee, president of
the reichstag, Rudolbh Breitscheid,
and others already prominent in
public life.
Thus Hoeltermann will not have
to pithis oratorical powers against
Hitler's. But he wasn't picked for
speechmaking, and if Herr Hitler's
strength is oratory Hopltermann's
is silence. His North German re-
serve suggests inner certainty and
firmness.
Unlike Hitler, too, he disdaines
all outer trappings; his quiet man-
ner is a reflection of the feeling
that intellectual conviction is more
decisive a factor in a man's make-
.up than emotional response.
Indeed, Hoeltermann described
himself and his movement as "con-
servative," saying:
"Human nature is fundamentally
conservative. People don't wanlt
fights or wars. They're generally
herded into them.
"The ccinservative elements of
the republican movement are the
basis of our strength.
