Hope that the Civilian Conserva-

.ational life was expressed in a radio
alk last night by Prof. Shirley W.
llen of the forestry school.
Speaking on the achievements of
tie corps, Professor Allen declared
hat its work during the past sum-
ner has put Michigan 15 years ahead
n the physical improvement phase
f conservation, and that this gain is
robably true of the country as a
"The press and the public in gen-
ral have been generous in recogniz-
ag the dividends of health, morale,
reparation for citizenship, and wide-
pread distribution of cash relief as
bvious objectives which have been
erved," he said.
"Not so obvious nor so fairly rec-
gnized has been the vast accomp-
shment in actual useful work de-
igned to maintain, improve, and
nake available our wealth of natural
esources, much of which has been
lanned or 'pecked away at' for the
ast two or three decades.
"Young men have learned to live
nd work together. This is significant
aid it may be that watching them
as had a profound effect on the
nany Federal, State, and local
,gencies involved. This certainly is
ot the least of the achievements
f the corps," Professor Allen' de-
Prof. Howard M. Wight of the for-
stry school concluded the program
vith a discussion of suggestions for
heasant management in southern
Michigan, based on a research project
which he has conducted.

Menefee Develops New Method
On Steel Of Kind Tested
Engineers have long sought a
method of testing the strength of
steel in railway, automobile, and
steamship constructions, to determine
reactions in the case of sudden
wrenches or shocks which produce
stresses on these structures.
By combining a "telemeter," a tiny
moving mirror, or oscillograph, and
a camera, Prof. Ferdinand N. Men-
efee of the College of Engineering,
reports that steel beams may be sub-
jected to all sorts of test blows in
the laboratory and their reactions
permanently recorded for reference.
The practical uses of the new shock
determining apparatus are numerous
and varied, according to Professor
Menefee. "Instantaneous load stress
has long been a bugbear to engineers
designing bridges, buildings, dirigible
frames or other structures liable to
sudden stresses, which may produce
quite different effects from ordinary
continuous loads," he states.
The tests which demonstrate this
fact were run on an apparatus con-
taining a telemeter in which two car-
bon rods are placed in contact so that
a definite electrical current flows
steadily through them. To this is
wired an oscillograph, a delicate elec-
trical meter, with a small mirror
mounted to swing with changes in
current, instead of the familiar dial
and pointer. A narrow beam of light
is focused on the mirror, from which
it is reflected to a slowly moving
motion picture film.
In experiments the telemeter is£
placed under the beam to be tested.
A sudden blow causes the beam to
yield, compressing the carbon rods.
This makes the electrical contact bet-
ter, more current shoots briefly
through to the oscillograph, agitating
the mirror and zig-zagging the light
line being photographed, leaving a
definite record of the reaction of the
steel beam to the blow.
First University Lecture
Given Today By Curtis
The first in the series of Univer-
ity lectures will be given today by
Prof. Heber D. Curtis on "Modern
Aspects of Astronomy." The lecture
will be given at 4:15 p. m. in Na-
tural Science Auditorium, and will be
illustrated with lantern slides.

Mr. Johnson is in charge of wind
tunnel tests of a small model of a
revolutionary new transport pl'ane
for the Lockheed Corp.
When completed it will be the
fastest transport plane in the world,
capable of a speed of 204 miles an
hour whilecruising and a maximum
speed of 225 mi.p.h. Of course these
are approximate speeds, Mr. Johnson
said, but through the tests the speed
may be reckoned within one or two
The new plane will be able to
make the Los Angeles to Chicago
flight in 12 hours. Wing flaps will
be provided to decrease the landing
speed. There will also be a change
in the formation of the pilot's cowl-
ing which will enable the pilot to
land more easily at night, through
the elimination of the glare of lights,
according to Mr. Johnson.
