Teachers of philosophy in Michi-I
gan met Saturday afternoon, organ-!
ized, and were admitted into the
Michigan Academy of Sciences, Arts,
and Letters as the Philosophy sec-I
tion, thus raising the number of sec-
tioris in the academy to 14.
Thercharter members of thesee-,
tion are: Prof. DeWitt H. Parker,
Prof. Roy Wood Sellars, Prof. Charles
B. Vibbert, Dr. Ray Hoekstra, Dr. J.
Bahm, all of the University and Rab-
bi Bernard Heller.
Charter members from other Mich-
igan colleges are: Frederick Meyer,
William Martin and R. J. Bellperch,
of the University of Detroit; William
Trap of .Detroit City College; Wil-
liam Jellema, of Calvin College; L.
J, Hemmes, of Kalamazoo; John
Marshall, of Albion; John M. De-
Haan, of Michigan State College;
John M. Wells, of Hillsdale College;
and Walter Van Susan of Hope Col-
Prof. DeWitt H. Parker, head of
the Department of Philosophy at the
University, was elected chairman of
the section.
At the initial organization meeting
iast Saturday, Professor John M. De-
Haan, spoke on "Bodily Mechanisms
in Catharsis." He attempted to showI
how all human emotions can be ex-I
plained in terms of certain bodily
mechanisms, such as harmonic secre-
tions._ According to this theory, all
ethical actions produced by erno-
tion can be explained in terms of
these mechanisms. "It might even
be possible, Professor DeHaan sug-
gested, "to achieve the great ethical
Ideal of the greatest happiness of
the greatest number by the use of
a hypodermic needle, since happiness
is a state of the physical organism
due directly to the chemical consti-
tution of the organism."
The Catholic point of view was
represented by William Martin in a
paper on "Scholastic Philosophy and
Recent Agnosticism."

cupy much less space than a pipe
organ. The cost of an organ such as
the great Frieze Memorial Organ in
Hill Auditorium is approximately
$75,000, and such an instrument re-
quires an immense amount of space.
Professor Firestone believes his in-
strument would sell for $20,000 and
would not take more space than the
Hill Auditorium console alone.
There is a possibility, he thinks, of
developing the organ in a size and
price range for use in the home.
The organ, according to .Professor
Firestone, would be able to introduce
into the music as played a con-
trollable amount of reverberation,
thereby giving the effect of the
music being played in an acoustically'
"live" room, even though the audi-
toriun itself were actually "dead" or
quite absorbing.
This effect would be particularly
useful in increasing the resonance
of the tone if the instrument were
installed in a moderate sized living

New 'Floating Body' For Autos

E ectrical Engineering
Institute TO Meet Today
The Detroit-Ann Arbor section of
the American Institute of Electrical
Engineers will hold its regular meet-
ing at 8 p. m. today in the Natural
Science Auditorium.
The meeting will be preceded by a
dinner at 6:15 p. m. in the Union.

An automobile with a "floating"
body is being experimented on under
the direction of Prof. Walter E. Lay
of the automotive engineering de-:
In order to find out more about
the air resistance of motor vehicles,
a low priced coupe was stripped of
doors, hood, fenders, and bumpers
and then equipped with the special

waiting for a calm period is only
one of the difficulties.
Although the experimental body
is much larger than the original
body and is by no means stream-
lined, tests showed that the top speed
was increased from 61 to 70 miles an
hour. Professor Lay said this is due
to the fact that the test body is



without any

and has smooth sides
projections such as


"floating" body.
The body is so installed on the
chassis that it is free to move for-
ward or backward several inches on
ball bearing rollers. As the car is
driven forward the air pressure tends
to push the body to the rear. This
motion is restrained only by a wire
connecting the "floating envelope,"
as the body is called, to a springj
scale that measures the force re-
quired to drive the envelope throug-h
the air.


fopwood Prize
Dra ws Interest
All Over U. S.


An erroneous notice appearing re-
cently in Writers' Guide, authors'
trade magazine, has brought letters
from more than 100 persons in all
parts of the country to the Eng-
lish department. The letters are from
writers who believe it is possible for
them to participate in the contest,
and they invariably ask for informa-
tion concerning the awards.
Under the terms of the will of the
late Avery Hopwood, '05, well-known.
dramatist, only students at the Uni-
versity who are taking courses in
English composition may compete for
the prizes totaling more than $10,000
each year. Recently, students in the
journalism department have been al-
lowed to compete. The original Hop-
wood gift. was more than $300,000.
While some of the requests for de-
tails of the contest received by Dr.
Bennett Weaver, secretary of the
Committee on Hopwood Awards,
were from business and professional
men, the greater part came from
college students. All wanted to know
whether they were eligible to take
Almost one-half of the total let-
ters were .from women, of whom
about one-third were married. A few
professors' names were noticed.
Almost every state in the Union is
represented by some one who wants
to take part in the Hopwood contest.
Letters from California, Pennsyl-
vania, and New York predominated.
A few sent contributions of poetry to
be included in the contest.
The English department cannot
undertake to answer all these con-
tributions individually, according to
Dr. Weaver, but it has notified the
Writers' Guide of the limitation of
the contest to Michigan students.
Last year the total amount of
prizes given out in major, minor and
freshman awards was $13,000.
This year's contest closes April 20,
it has been announced. This is the
first Thursday following spring va-
week instead of Wednesday in the
Glee Club room and at the regular

A four mile course of approximate-
ly level and smooth concrete was
located near Ann Arbor on which to
make the tests. A inje of this road
was accurately measured and red
lights set up at each end. At one end
a miniature weather bureau station
was constructed to measure wind ve-
locity and direction and the tem-
perature, pressure, and humidity of
the air.
It is necessary to have this
weather bureau as a test will not
yield accurate results if there is a
wind velocity of more than two or
three miles an hour. Wind velocities
as low as this are extremely rare but

A talk on "The Two Danger Spots

ment at tonight's meeting of the

Hall. The Polish Corridor situation,

united territory, will be one of the
questions discussed, and Hungary
and the Balkan situation will be
the other.

1 or Anthology7
Michigan students have been asked
to contribute to an "anthology of
verse drawn from the students in
the accredited colleges of the United
States," according to Dr. Bennett
Weaver, of the English department,
who expressed, a hope that many
students would contribute poems.
These poems, he said, are to be
exhibited in manuscript form at the
Century of Progress Exposition at
Chicago this summer. The collection
is being sponsored by the Poets'
Guild, a society which includes,
among its prominent members Rob-
ert Frost, Harry Emerson Fosdick,
and Mrs. Dwight W. Morrow.
Dr. Weaver recommended that
students who are interested in con-
tributing to the anthology send their
poems directly to the Poets' Guild,
147 Avenue B, New York City. The
last date on which poems will be
acceptable is April 1, according to a
statement of the editor of the an-
