Uniques Feats Of
Be Shown At Ch
By GEORGE M. HOLMES
Engineering feats never attempted
before and structures of novel and
advanced design will be seen at the
Century of Progress Exposition open-
ing June 1 at Chicago, according to
recently-announced plans.
To bring attractions of historic
and educational interest halfway
arOund the world has been a great
-acomplishment in itself, but it was
the task of making these exhibitions
available to the crowds expected to
-attend the fair that really taxed the
ingenuity of engineers, it was said.
Grounds had to be procured on
which to place the exhibition. Islands
were built up from the bottom of
Lake 'Mihigan. The entire fair is
located on artificial land.
New Highways Constructed
Highways had to be constructed
leading to the grounds. Fourteen
traffic arteries, each leading 100
miles .out .of Chicago have bean de-
signed for us, of those motoring to
the fair. These trunk lines have been,
named after high points of interest
at the fair, such as "Industrial
Boulevard" and "Agricultural High-
way.",
Although the Chica;o 1Motel Asso--
ciation has announced that hotel
rates would not be advanced, many
tourist camps are being constructed
Grades And Brains
TermieffDifferent
BE2RKELtY, Calif., April 6.-Only
one out of four incoming freshmen
who make high grades in intelli-
gence tests receive good marks in ex-
amination throughout their college
preers, according to Prof. Warner
Brown of the University of Califor-
nia.
"Many unintelligent students in the
university are successful," he said,
"because they are motivated by their
own dullness to achieve high grades
and thus prove to their friends that
they arc not stupid. On the other
hand. those who are bright enough
to obtain a 'B' average are often mo-
tivated to the contrary and take.
great pride in boasting of the fact
that they never have to study."
Professor Brown deprecated the re-
liability of photographs, autographs,
and interviews as indications of a
student's potential successfulness.

Olson, of the School of Education,
declared in an interview.
However, a numbr of researches
have been conducted in recent years,
and the reports in general favor the
use of motion pictures as supple-
mentary instructional material' As
a rule the investigations have evalu-
ated the effect of films upon the
child along three different lines:
Physical Results Discussed'
1. The instructional value of mo-1
tion pictures as used in classrooms.
2. Their effect upon attitudes. Inj
this field pictures were shown which
might be assumed to affect attitudes
toward religion, races, ethical ques-
tions, and similar subjects, and the
pupils were tested before and after
to determine if the pictures had any
effect upon their former atittudes."
The results were positive. But it was
also found that after the lapse of
several months these changed atti-
tudes tended to fade, although the
pupils generally retained something
of the changed attitude.
3. The effect of motion pictures as
to the factors of fatigue, health, and
vision. The results of this third line
of inquiry have been comparatively
incomplete up to the present time,
but a number of investigations are
now being reported.
Many Questions Raised r
The most comprehensive survey of
informational outcomes was that by
Ben Wood and Frank Freeman, in
which silent pictures with captions
were employed. They found that the
pupils reacted very favorably toward
the use of movies as a means of
classroom instruction. It should be
borne in mind, said Professor Olson,
that the differences were often small
onough though significant, and that
it is difficult to measure all possible
outcomes.
"In fact," states Professor Olson,
"the researches have raised more,
questions than they have answered,
and investigators have been occupied
with answering these questions,
rather than attempting to judge the
place of movies as a means of class-
room instruction. In looking at this

With beer comes prosperity-any
way, you can count on having plenty
of cheese. Cheeses, 400 different var-
ieties of them--now that beer is
back-are coming into their own as
they never have before, dairymen
say. Limburger especially will again
be a relished dish on better-furnished
tables.
Cheese and the pretzel have made
beer what it is. In recognition of
this fact, cheese companies are pre-
paring dozens of the most thirst-in-
ducing varieties of cheese appropri-
ate to the buffet and table graced by
beer. An unprecedented popularity
for American, Limburger, Swiss, Old
English-all of the rich and ruddy,
salty and thirst-inducing favorites
of generations of beer lovers-is pre-
dicted.
In the 13 years that beer has been
boycotted, America has lost some of
the arts of dining, and will have tc
be educated into the true joys of
cheese-eating, it is claimed.
The proper cheese try for the mod-
ern buffet supper should include spe-
cial cheeses, both sharp and mild,
mellow and rich. Cheeses of all na-
tions are included in the category,
from the ripe, flavorful Limburger
of Belgium to the smooth and mild-
ly salty Edam of Holland. Old Eng-
ish,. with its sharp, racy tang to
pique the taste and the thirst, and
Swiss cheese, prime favorite of at
least one entire nation of beer-lovers,
will be among the great international
cheese champions to hold high favor
on Ain'rican tables.
BURSLEY TALKS IN FLORIDA

question, the layman must remem-
ber that the movies are not usually
advocated as a substitute for teach-
ers, but as a useful supplement to
their instruction."
At the present the question of the
relative value of sound vs. silent
movies in instruction constitutes a
new trend of research.
It was pointed out that the great-
est objection to the movies as a
major means of classroom instruc-
tion in the elementary grades is that
it is desirable that the child should
partake actively and creatively in his
early learning, and should not as-
sume a passive attitude, such as re-
liance on movies might foster. "The
enlargement of experience which can
be offered through the cinema should
be utilized as the occasion permits,"
Professor Olson concluded.

Applaud State For
EarlyRepeal Vote
WASHINGTON, April 8. - A0) -
Michigan's delegates to the confer-
ence to the Women's Organization
for National Prohibition Reform were
accorded an ovation at a national
meeting of the organization here, as
representatives of the first state to
vote for repeal.
Mrs. Frederick M. Alger of De-
troit, chairman of the Michigan dele-
gation, was called to the platform by
Mrs. Charles Sabin, New York, na-
tional chairman, who said:
"Your state has blazed the trail
for repeal. You and your associates
are to be complimented."
"It was a tremendous fight," Mrs.
Alger replied. "We became a bit dis-
couraged at times, but on top of it
all came a great victory. I appreciate
very much our recognition from this
organization."
, Mrs. Alger left Washington Wed-
nesday night to return to Lansing,
where she will act as a delegate at
Michigan's repeal convention April

Most other Indian tribes used,
broken shells, ground-up stones, or
broken pottery to stiffen the clay be-
fore firing so that it would not col-
lapse of its own weight. Upon in-
vestigation the material used for stif-
fening in these shards, as the pot-
tery fragments are called, was found
to be of some plant. Volney Jones of
the ethnobotanical laboratory com-
pared the burnt pieces of plant frowl
the shards with palmetto fibre from
the Uiversity Herbarium. After ex-
aminig both under a microscope, he
was of the opinion that the vegetable
matter was probably palmetto fibre,
stated Mr. Griffin,
This discovery, along with the sim-'
Parity of design and degree of loft-

CHICAGO, April 6.-(iP)---This city

Officials -of the World's Fair, where
the steel man will be on display,
described the device as the "most
perfect mechanical man ever de-
signed.
Already the skeleton of the robotl

lips and extended its four-and-one-
half-foot arm in lifelike gestures.
When a speaking mechanism and a
motion picture projecting device are
installed the robot will be able to
illustrate a 20-minute lecture on
food chemistry, pointing to its own
illuminated digestive organs.
For a "brain" the robot will use a
one-fourth horsepower motor.

preme court late Wednesday ruled
that charter cities may receive only
such share of the 15-mill property
tax as shall be apportioned them
by the legislature.
In a previous ruling, the court held
charter cities may raise taxes in ex-
cess of the constitutional limit for
city purposes and held a law will be
necessary to apportion the 15-mill

WAShINGTON, April 6.-(/P)-1
Twenty-five thousand unemployed
cn in 17 large cities were being se-
lcdt today as the first member of
President Roosevelt's conservation
corps for work in the national for-
ests.
Recruiting of the men may start
for conditioning camps late today
but most of the 25,000 will go Fri-
day and Saturday. After two weeks
in the military centers the recruits
will be sent to the tented camps in
national forests and parks. They
will wortk a maximum of 40 hours
and five days a week on the various
projects involved in conservation
work. ;N.
Official city and state agencies
which already have lists of unem-
ployed men were charged with en-
rolling the recruits today, picking
unmarried men between 18 and 25.
The agencies will notify each man
)ersonally of his selection and he
must be willing to share a substan-
tial part of his $30 a month pay
j with dependent relatives. There will
be no public registration of jobless
seeking work until after this first
class has been taken care of.
The second selection of men will
be begun before the end of the week,
From 25,000 to 50,000 men will be
taken at frequent intervals with Pres-
ident Roosevelt hopeful of having
250,000 on duty by July 1.
Forests in the south and east will
receive the first men, southern for-
ests being favored because of war-
imer weather.
