the editors of the state to meet

riun at 4:15 p. in.. tomorrow, it was
.mnounced yesterday by Dr. Peter O.
Okkelberg, of the zoology depart-
ment. Professor Winge, internation-
ally known in the field, of cyt lory
and geneti s, io expected to deal with
"he heredity of color pattens in the
fish Lebistes under the title. "The
Genetics of the Millionfish."
Widely Experienced
Other subjects to which Dr. Win e
has directed his study are the inheri-
tance of sex and sex-linked charac-
teristics in plants and men, lethal
characters in the fruitfly Drosophila,
variegation in plants, and color in
cattle and horses. He has also de-
scribed the chromosomes of a num-
ber of different kinds of plants such
as wheat, hops, campion, vetches, and
eel grass, partly in relation to sex de-
termination, partly as a source of
variation, and for the elucidation of
hybrids between species and their
bearing on evolution, and by his work
he has shown that a considerable
number of the true-breeding hybrids
owe their existence to discoverable
chromosome changes. A n o t h e r
branch of his cytological work has
been the microscopic study of crown
gall in plants and tumors in animals.
On Lecture Tour
Since the conclusion of the Sixth
International Congress of Genetics
held at Cornell University, Ithaca,
New York, in August, in which he
participated, Professor Winge has
been on a lecture tour of leading uni-
versities. He is now returning from
the Pacific coast, and after a few
more lectures, in the East will sail
for Denmark.

the enterprise has aroused through-
out the state is shown in the number
of delegates in attendance, which
yearly comes to about 200.
Although Professor Brumm was the
first president of the organization, it
has since been the rule to elect one
of the state editors to that office.
Among those who have held the office
in the past are E. J. Ottoway, '94,
editor of the Port Huron Times-Her-
ald, Stuart Perry, '94, editor of the

assistant secretary of the University
and treasurer of the band. yesterday
clarified the University policy rela-
tive to such participation.
"It has always been and still is.
the policy of the University that the
Varsity Band will go anywhere in
the State for any organization, pro-
vided that such a trip can possibly
be made, that the request for the
band is made in the proper manner,
and that the organization asking the
band's services make full arrange-
ments necessary for transportation,
meals, and housing."
A letter to the Campus Opinion
column of The Daily yesterday asked
if the band would play for a Com-
munist party rally in Ann Arbor.
Both Mr. Watkins and Prof. Nicholas
D. Falcone, director of the band, de-
clared that the band is politically
independent and would play, if at
all possible, for any political meeting
which is conducted legally and in an
orderly manner.
"The band played Saturday night
primarily for Hoover as President of
the United States rather than as the
Republican candidate," Mr. Watkins
said. "The request came from the
chairman of the Republican commit-
tee on arrangements, through Presi-
dent Ruthven, and was granted with-
out question. We considered it a val-
uable experience for the members of
the band. The band will play any-
where it can if properly authorized
to do so by the Committee on Stu-
dent Affairs."
Mr. Watkins pointed out that two
other bands, one of them from the
University of Detroit, a private in-
stitution, also furnished music for
the Hoover program.
Comments from President Hoover,
Gov. Wilbur M. Brucker, and Charles
A. Sink, president of the School of
Music, and members of the State Re-
publican Committee, were all highly~
favorable to the band. The President
commented to Governor Brucker that
"of all the bands I have heard in the
country the University of Michigan
has one of the very best. It is a
credit to its institution."
Governor Brucker commented that
the band "had never been so fine
as Saturday night," and President
Sink commended the organization in
a letter to Professor Falcone, which
is as follows:
"I take this opportunity of telling
you of the wonderful impression
which you and members of the Mich-
carry your shoes to be re-
paired, when we call for

European Sketches Are
Exhibited By Marshall
Lorne E. Marshall, '31A, holder of
the Booth Travelling Fellowship in
Architecture, has just submitted a
group of European sketches made
during the past few months. The
drawings are of familiar European
scenes and are on exhibit on the first
floor of the Architecture building
from 9 a. m. to 5 p. m. daily except
Sunday through October.
The recipient of the Booth Fellow-
ship is given $1,200 for a year's travel
abroad. During the year he is ex-
pected to send in drawings of con-
tinental beauty spots, putting spe-
cial emphasis on the architectural
value of the scene.
Mr. Marshall has sent in informal
sketches of familiar European beauty
spots, among them the Bridge of
Sighs in Venice.

Fir e Experiment I
Station Maintained
By Forest Service'
LANSING, Oct. 26.-Maintaining
that "future progress depends more
on improved organization and meth-3
ods than on additional funds al-
though increased appropriations are
needed in some quarters," the Mich-
igan Department of Conservation and+
the United States Forest Service have
conducted since 1930 the forest fire+
experiment Station in Roscommon
County, a tract of 1,350 acres two
miles south of Roscommon.
Details of past and present inves-
tigations, as well as general conclu-
sions from work already carried out,
are contained in a booklet now be-
ing distributed through the State
Conservation Department.
Twenty years have seen fire pro-
tection of forest land grow from a
mere dream to an accepted fact, the
booklet says. Michigan's expendi-
tures.in this field, growing from $36,-
000 in 1921 to nearly $570,000 in 1930,
parallel those of other states.
The experiment station at present
is studying such questions as the
meaning of weather conditions in
terms of fire hazards, what type of
equipment is best used, how fires
behave under different conditions
and what factors are responsible for
their behavior, how fire damages
may best be determined, the use of
fire breaks and chemicals, effect of
fires on blueberry production, and
the importance of radio communica-
tion in fighting fires.
