Haldane Lists
Toxic Effects
Of Impure Air
It's Important Factor In
Our Mortality Problem,
English Scientist Says
Declaring that the main thing that
kills men while at work is what they
breathe, Dr. John B. S. Haldane, di-
rector of the John Innes Horticul-
tural Institute of Genetics at Cam-
bridge, England, last night went on
to give the latest information on
"Bad Air," where one is likely to en-
counter it, how one may detect if,
and what measures are praticable to
combat it in various.occupations.
Problems of bad air are of three
general types, Dr. Haldane explaied,
those arising from too much or too
little air, from a wrong composition
of the atmosphere; and from the
presence of harmful dusts and bac-
teria in the air. An occupation which
has to fight the problem of too much
air is that of diving, where men are
forced to work with compressed air
and are in danger, on the one hand,
from bubbles of nitrogen in the body
tissues and on the other, from posion
by oxygen.
. Dr. Haldane pointed out that a
great deal of study still needs to be
done in this occupation to determine
with accuracy just how slowly or how
rapidly to make the ascent from un-
der water.

Business Manager Says
Advance Reservations
Are Unusually Heavy
Advance reservations for "The
Beggar on Horseback," a satire on
prosperity by George S. Kaufman
and Marc Connelley which Play Pro-
duction will present Dec. 5 to 10 in
the Laboratory Theatre, are being
received now, Charles Harrell, 34,
business manager, announced yester-
day. I
"Because of the tremendous popu-
larity of the play," Harrell said, "the
advance orders for the production
have been unusually heavy and from
all indications sellouts for a majority
of the six nights which the play runs
will occur.
"The regular box-office sale of
tickets will begin at 10 a. m. Wednes-
day and will continue until 8 p. m.
every day until the closing perform-
ance," he stated.
Work on the show, which is being
produced for the third time by the
organization, has been progressing
rapidly under the direction of Val-
entine B. Windt. Rehearsals have
been held for the past two weeks
and will continue through next Sun-
day with a cast of over 40 students.

Of Acoustical
Society Given
Dr. Miller Colors Talk
With Reminiscences Of
His Contacts In Sound
Study Neglected In
History, He Claims
Thorough-Going Research
In This Field Conducted
Only Since World War
Dr. Dayton C. Miller, of the Case
School of Applied Science, Cleveland,
sketched the history of the science of
sound last night before the Acous-
tical Society of America, holding its
eighth meeting here. Dr. Miller color-
ed his talk with anecdotes, some of
them arising from personal contacts
with eminent physicists, and with
slides, rare books, flutes, a mono-
chord, and tuning forks.
In gathering material for his lec-
ture, Dr. Miller found, he said, that
the sience of applied sound has been
neglected in histories of science, only
a few pages or lines being biven to it
in volumes of 500 or more pages. Two
books which he owns, however, con-t
tain "more references than all the1
visible stars in the heavens," and
from these he organized his research.
Possibly Recent
Only since the World war has thor-,
ough study of sound been carried on,
Dr. Miller said. During the time of
ancient Greece and Rome and
through the Middle Ages, even into,
the seventeenth century, scientists
had, mystic ideas about music and
sound. and tried to link them with
their conceptions of the universe.
Even such a well-known scientist
as Newton, Dr. Miller pointed out, ac-+
tually believed that there was some
connection between the eight musical
- notes and the seven colors. "His work
in attempting to justify his original+
calculation of 987 feet per second as
the velocity of sound by blaming it onr
conditions of the air was character-
istic of sophomore lab work of the
present day," Dr. Miller stated.
The society will conclude its meet-1
ings here today. At the morning+
meeting, starting at 9:30 a. i.. six
papers will be presented. Members
will gather at Hill Auditorium at+
1:30 p. in. to hear Palmer Christian
give a short organ recital, demon-
strating the acoustics of the hall.
Open house will be held in the East
Physics Building during the rest of
the afternoon.
Technical Papers Read
Meetings yesterday were given overj
entirely to the reading of technicalj
papers. The first of these, by John .
S. Parkinson and Paul o. Young, of1
the Johns-Manville Corporation, de-
scribed briefly experiments made in1
connection with that firm's acous-
tical laboratory.
Measurement of transmission loss+
through partition walls specially con-1
structed in Bell Telephone Labora-
tories was explained in a paper by
E. H. Bedell and K. D. Swartzel, Jr.,]
of the Bell staff. V. L. Chrisler and
Catherine E. Miller pointed out that1
the installation of rotating vanes in]
the reverberation room of the Bureau
of Standards keeps sound more uni-
formly distributed and causes the
change in the apparent coefficient

with the size and shape of the
sample to be much smaller than be-
Discuss Absorption Coefficients
In a paper by S. K. Wolf and W.
J. Sette, of Electrical Research Prod-
ucts, Inc., measured absorption coef-
ficients were shown to depend on
both position and quality of material.
Lloyd Loar, of the Vivi-Tone Com-
pany, concluded the morning session
by demonstrating with musical in-
struments the possibilities of elec-
trically produced tones from string
Supersonics was the general topic
of discussion in the afternoon. J. C.
Hubbard, of Johns Hopkins Univer-
sity, opened the session with a dis-
cussion of the methods and results of
supersonic interferometry. He was
followed by W. T. Richards, of
Princeton University, who talked on
the chemical aspects of the disper-
sion and absorption of sound.
Absorption measurements in gas
can be determined by use of the
theory of the supersonic interfero-

Roosevelt Stresses
Legalizing Of Beer
President-Elect Covers All
Work To Be Done' At
Congressional S e ssio n
WARM SPRINGS, Ga., Nov. 28.-
(P)-During. a series of conferences,
Franklin D. Roosevelt today went
over with the leader of his party in
the Senate the plans by which he
hopes the short session can make
sufficient progress with the Demo-
cratic program to avoid an extra
meeting early in his administration.
After his meeting with Sen. Robin-
son of Arkansas there came word
that the Democrats expected virtual-
ly to control the Senate in the short
session, that unofficial committees
would be set up to deal with several
important subjects, and that execu-
tive appointments ould be laid aside
by the Senate until after inaugura-
Among the measures on which par-
ticular stress was laid in the talk be-
tween the two were the prospects for
enactment of farm relief' and beer
legalizing measures at the short ses-
sion. The beer measure would go
hand in hand with steps to balance
the budget.
Considers Question
To this question, Mr. Roosevelt was
giving serious thought. During a
press conference late today at the
cottage, the President-Elect said he
had found the budget the "most fas-
cinating book I have read in years."
Robinson, talking to newspaper-
men just before he left to motor to
Washington, said his conferences
with Mr. Roosevelt had covered the
whole scope of the work to be done
at the approaching session.
"It extended particularly to the
possibility of enacting a farm meas-
are and obtaining action on beer
4egislation," he said.
The President-Elect had two long
talks today with Henry M. Morgen-
thau, of New York, and Henry A.
Wallace, Iowa farm editor, on meth-
ods to be employed in dealing with
farm surplus. M. L. Wilson of the
Montana State Agricultural College,
.lay come later.
Hoover, Aides Await
Word From Europe
WASHINGTON, Nov. 28.-(P)-
Holding securely to the position that
Europe has failed to produce facts
which justify her request for post-
ponement of war debt payments due
next month, President Hoover and
his advisors tonight awaited the ar-
rival of additional notes from London
and Paris.
Secretary Mills and Secretary Stim-
son talked the situation over with the
chief executive today and afterward
said no new decisions had been
reached and America's remained un-
Like Opinions Expressed
"We will know more in 48 hours,"
Mills said in reply to newspapermen's
questions on what the debtor na-
tions will do on Dec. 15. when the
net installments fall due. "Right now
we are standing squarely on the Pres-
ident's position that no facts have
been presented to warrant suspension
of the Dec. 15 payments and that
these payments should be made."
Both cabinet members feel that the
next move mnpst come from Eu-
rope and that unless some unfore-
seen facts are presented by the deb-
tors the decision whether they will
pay or default is squarely up to them.
During the day, the President talk-

to France, and John W. Garrett, am-

WASHINGTON, Nov. 28.-(P)-A
threatened bolt by groups in both
parties may put the potency of House
wet strength to a rigorous test next
Monday in the vote planned then onc

Eighteenth Amendment.
Grumblings were heard in various
quarters today on Capitol Hill over
the form of the resolution made pub-
lic by its sponsor, Speaker Garner,
calling for flat repeal and ratifica-
tion through state conventions,
Several Southern Democrats said
they preferred to vote on a resolution
similar to the Glass Amendment in

the saloon and Federal protection to
dry states.

authority to set up the entire ma-
