Robbins Announces Re-
lease Of Second Volume'
Of Discussions
The second volume of papers de-
livered before the 1933 session of the
Michigan Academy of Science, Arts,
and Letters was released from the
printers last week, according to Dr.
Frank E. Robbins, assistant to Presi-
dent Ruthven.
Each year papers are published in
this form and are distributed to more
than 300 universities and allied in-
stitutions throughout the world, in
exchange for which similar publica-
tions of the receiving institutions are
sent to the University Library. The
custom began more than 10 years ago
and has met with increased response
yearly since then, it was said.
This year the two volumes were
edited by Prof. Peter 0. Okkelberg,
executive secretary of the zoology
department and secretary of the
Graduate School, and Dr. Eugene S.
McCartney of the Graduate School.
The first volume contains the papers
relating to the biological sciences,
botany, zoology, and forestry, while
the second one just released contains
those on anthropology, economics
and sociology, geography, geology
and mineralogy, history and political
science, languages and literature,
mathematics, and psychology.

Lavish Use Of Electrical Power And Light
Is Planned At Chicago Fair This Summer

CHICAGO, April 18.-Electricity,
the magic wonder of science, will be
used more and to greater advantage
at the Century of Progress Exposi-
tion this summer here than has ever
before been attempted, according to
advance information concerning the
event.
Lavish and general use of electrical
power and electrical devices, espe-
cially for lighting effects, has been
responsible for the attractiveness and
success of all expositions held dur-
ing the last 30 years, but engineers
in charge of this year's fair claim
that entirely new and original uses
for electricity will be demonstrated.
Decorations for exposition build-
ings, power for working models on
display, amusement devices, trans-
portation facilities, instructive mo-
tion pictures, and illumination for
the grounds and buildings are de-
pendent on electrical power. Colored
lights will be particularly prominent
at the fair, for the neon tube and
similar devices that are today em-

ployed in advertising have been
adopted and designed to act as dec-
orations for many of the exposition
buildings.
Electrical engineers expect this use
for electric lights will find wide-
spread adoption in future design of
both public and private buildings, for
developments in the last few years
ar making this style of decorations
more beautiful and at the same time
more economical.
Since most of the buildings are
without windows, illumination, be-
came an important problem. The
conventional light fixture will be a
thing of the past, if public approval
is given to the modern method of
illumination being demonstrated at
the exposition. Lighting by means of
4 large expanse of illuminated sur-
face, such as the lights used in mir-
rors, and indirect lighting will be
much in use at the fair.
Unique lighting effects are also
included. One of these is the illumi-
nation of a building in such a man-

ner as to give it the appearance of
a cascade.
The various uses of electricity will
be demonstrated by exhibits of mod-
ern machines and devices. The con-
structionand function of the photo-
electric cell, the electromagnet, the
dynamo, electric motor, and trans-
former will be explained by diagrams
and special models.
The entire story of radio, including
the function of the vacuum tube,
will be told. The thyratron organ and
the grid-glow tube are two recent de-
velopments that will be exhibited.
Plans also call for the exhibition of
a new electric locomotive, said to be
the most powerful in the world,
