Can you wiggle your ears:? Prof.
R. C.. Ilussey of the geoogy de-

-ish pride of those who have ac-
complished this feat when he ex-
plained to his class in historical
geology that the abily to use
muscles merely means that the in-
dividual has inherited a trait of
one of our remote ancestors, the
ape. In other words the ear-wig-
gler is more or less of a throw-
Professor flusgey also cleared up
'this matter of "hair standing on
end." Matter-of-fact scientists ex-
plain this phenomenon by saying
that involuntary muscles at the
roots of each hair are caused to
function by some violent shock.
This is just another "vestigial" or-
gan that tends to prove that man

Stiletto Is Only
Clew In Bronx
I NEW YORK, Jan. 10.-,(/P) - A
black-handled stiletto, with a blade
six inches long, was the only clew to-
day as detectives hunted a killer who
murdered a baby boy in his crib.
Frank Michael Cammarano, four
months old, was sleeping in a dark-
ened room in the Bronix Monday
ight. His father, Amando, 25,,was
at night school, learning the plumb-
ing trade. Other relatives chatted in
an adjoining room.
Silently the killer crept onto a
porch at the rear of the Cammarano
pome, The baby slept quietly as a
pair of window curtains nearby part-
ed and a hand thrust into the room.
It grasped the, stiletto.
Slowlythe long knife descended, a

tated at the deed. It infilicted a su-
perficial wound, then another. A
third time it descended forcefully,
ruthlessly, plunging into the infant's
breast and pinning the tiny form to
Teresa Cammarano, 16-year-old
aupt of the baby, thought she heard,

screamed. Other relatives ran in-all

SEATTLE, Wash., Jan. 0.-The
convention picture of Phi Betes as
horn-rimmed, brief-case-toting burn-
ers of the twilight kilowatts is ab-
surd, according to Professor W. R.
Wilson of Washington University,
who claims that members of Phi Beta
Kappa do 20 per cent less work than
does the averageundergraduate.
While the average student spends
100 minutes each week per credit
hour, "A" undergraduates study only
80 minutes, according to a .recent
psychology survey. ProfessoruWilson
says this is possible because the
brighter students study "faster;"
that is, they turn out more work
per unit time than the average stu-

Police, calling it the most inhuman
crime in a long time, said it looked
like an act of revenge or jealousy
but they could find nothing to sup-
port such a theory. The stiletto, the

fully dusted with fingerprint powder
but it was not believed the police
found any prinlts.

Young Violinist To Play in
Hill Auditorium .During
Fourth Tour Of U. S. A,
The progressive story. of a great
triumph is the chronicle of Nathan
Mlstein's eight-year climb to musical
"Nathan the Wise," the young Rus-
sian violinist who will play here Jan.

Union Concert Series, came out of
Russia in 1925. Forced to leave his
precious Guadagnini violin behind, he
arrived in Berlin, without a violin,
money, or connections. It was only a
short time, however, before a backer
appeared for a debut concert, and a
patron offered him a Stradivarius.
His first Berlin appearance, say
critics, definitely established him as
one of the first talents of the new
generation. From Germany he went
to France, where in Paris he repeated
his Berlin success. Du ring, the past
five years,' Mr. Milstein has toured
all of France, Belgium, Spain, Portu-
gal, Italy, and South America. Al-.
most every summer, however, he has
gone into retirement, rehearsing his
repertoire with Ysaye.4
In the season 1928-29, Mr. Milstein:
played twice with the Amsterdam
Concertgebuow Orchestra u n d e r
Monteux, with the Residenz Orches-
tra of the Hague, twice at Scheven-
ingen under Schneevdigt, with the
four orchestras of Paris, the Colonne,
Lamoureux, Conservatoire, and the
new Orchestra Symphonique de Par-
is; in Antwerp, and Ghent, twice in
Monte Carlo with orchestra, twice
with thedAugusteum Orchestra in
Rome,, and under Arbos in Madrid
Coming to America for the first
time in 1929, he proceeded en an in-
troductory tour which included ap-
pearances with the Philadelphia,
Portland, Los Angeles, St. Louis, and
New York Philharmonic-Symphony
Orchestras. Since then he has been
to America twice, and will appear on
his fourth concert tour of the United

Wednesday, wrote the first of his
"Adventures of a Diplomatic Free
Lance" in 1909, and the character
has continued to live, month by
month, with only two interruptions,
in the pages of a magazine.
The "adventures" missed an issue
in 1916 when the writer's hand was
bitten off by a bear he was feeding
at Central Park zoo. Again, a few
years ago, the "Diplomatic Free
Lance" stopped temporarily when
Mrs. New died.
Altogether, New wrote more than
threegmillion words recounting the
intrigues and narrow escapes of his

these pictures is being started by
