running off the elimination rounds of
the independent men's division of
the all-campus contract bridge tour-
nament, according to an announce-
ment last night. The tournament,
which is being sponsored jointly by

Chicago Professor Says
Almost Anyone Stutters
CHICAGO, March 1 - --Here's
cheer for stutterers! Prof. Arthur G.
Bills of the University of Chicago
psychology department said today
that a series of tests had convinced
him that almost everybody stammers.
"When the public speaker pauses
in his address and says 'a' he's just
stuttering," said Prof. Bills. "If he
didn't do it he'd stumble over the
next word."
But in claiming to have found the
cause of stuttering,- fatigue - the
professor said so far he had no cure
to offer.
The more fatigued the normal per-
son-one not addicted to dragging
out his words in numerous syllables
-the oftener he pauses said Prof.
Bills.

Annotinced
More than 450 students patronized
the Union billiard and bowling rooms
at the first half-price night held
Tuesday, it was reported yesterday.

ual number who make use of the fa-
cilities during an evening, the at-
tendants said.j
Harry A. Shefman, and William L.
McGarry, '34L, tied for the high
run in pocket billiards with 14 each,

high run of the evening in three
cushion billiards with a score of 3.
Prizes of 75 cents in trade in the
billiard room have been awarded toI

selio G. Fontana, Grad., who made a
score of 212. He will be given three
free lines in the Union bowling alleys.
An equal prize will also be given to
the low score of the evening whose
name will be announced later.

nament will bowl the winners of the

DIRTY WORK ON COPY DESK
GREENCASTLE, Ind., March 1.-
It seems that the copyreaders for
The Depauw are getting out of con-
trol. Recently this notice was in-
serted in a column, "There will be
a little more 'Death In the Afternoon'
if the copyreaders don't stop slip-
ping their private scandals into this
column. And it won't be a mild bull
fight either."

rh-Point Winners In
fowling, Billiards Are

A garden exhibit, consisting of
group photographs of architecture
and garden sketches prepared by
Vera Angeline Bennett, of Grand
Rapids, and brought here by Mrs.
Erwin E. Nelson, president of the
local Garden Club, will be placed on
exhibition in the large cases on the
first floor of the Architecture build-
ing today.
The subjects of the photographs
are taken from various parts of the
United States. Some of them show
the gardens of California; others
those of New Orleans; and a large
number of them those of Michigan.
Pictures of the Michigan sand dunes
are also displayed.
"Several of the prints which will
be exhibited tomorrow have previous-
ly been shown all over the United
States, at National and International
Salons," Miss Bennett, who is now in
Ann Arbor, said. "Architecture and
garden sketches have both been used
together in this grouping because
they are so closely related.
"Various mediums have been em-
ployed in the making of these
prints," she said, "because the tech-
nique is much different than that of
pictures taken in a studio. In tak-
ing pictures in the garden, the light-
ing is not controlled and so only cer-
tain times of the day can be used.
The best time to take these photo-

graphs is either in the morning be-
fore 10 a. m. or late in the afternoon
or early evening. In the middle of
the day, the light is so strong that
it blots out detail, and the long shad-
ows which add atmosphere to the
scene are missing. For best effects,
soft lighting and shadows are neces-
sary.
"The air currents must also be
taken into consideration," Miss Ben-
nett pointed out, "for even on ap-
parently calm days, whiffs of wind
are apt to disturb the subject to be
photographed. To correct this it is
necessary to make use of 'built-up
exposure.' That is, snap the camera
off when the wind starts to blow, and
then when it has again grown calm,
snap it back on. An unpicked flower
always returns to the same spot af-
ter swaying, and consequently the
picture will not be ruined. Flowers
in a vase, of course, will not return to
the same spot if disturbed.
Miss Bennett is also a specialist in
the making of autochrome pictures.
These are pictures of gardens taken
in their natural colors. The system
for making this type of picture has
been perfected during the last 20
years by the Frenchman, Lumiere.
At the regular annual meeting of
the Garden Club Tuesday night, Miss
Bennett displayed her pictures, and
explained them to the members. The
meeting was preceeded by a dinner.

Sigma Rho Tau
Launches New
Type Program
Sigma Rho Tau, Engineers Stump
Speaking Society, has launched a
program this semester that is being
watched by similar organizations all
over the country. The Alpha chap-
ter was established here four years
ago. Since then three more chapters
have been organized. Besides being
the national headquarters of the so-
ciety, the chapter here corresponds
with speaking organizations on many
other campuses.
The objective of this society is not
to give the good speaker a chance to
speak, but the man who wants to,
according to William C. Kugler, pres-
ident.
The meetings are conducted in the
following manner: first, the entire
society meets in one group to transact
business and perhaps listens to a talk
by a member of the faculty or some
out-of-town speaker, then the mem-
bers divide up its groups to discuss
various topics of interest to an en-
gineer.
