By JOHN A. BABING TON a
Hidden away in the North wing ofI
West Engineering Building is an
elaborate bit of research equipment
which few students know about, and
which fewer realize is duplicated in
only one other place in this country.I
The University naval testing tank
has its only counterpart in govern-
ment-maintained research labora-
tories in Washington, where experi-
mental shapes of ships are tested for
the ease with which they will glide
through the water.
The tank is a concrete box 300 feet
long, 22 feet wide, and 10 feet deep.
Straddling the tank is an electrically
motored car which can tow models
through the water at any speed from
23 to 400 feet per minute. Mounted
on the towing car is a recording dy-
namometer, through whose wiggling
pen the resistance of the model is
registered on specially prepared
graph paper.
Models Made To Specifications
From the data supplied by these
records, students in the naval arch-
itecture course compute the most ef-
ficipnt shape for the desired speed.
And according to model maker A. A.
Limpert, whose workshop is part of
of the naval tank room, the com-
plexity of these mechanical calcu--
lations is rather near the limit as
such things go.
Model making is, to the "man in
the street," even more interesting
than the naval tank. Half a dozen
submarine models, made as long ago
as 1918, are exhibited at one end
of the room, and another half dozen
model sailboat hulls are scattered
about. These models are about a
yard and a half long, and made
largely of wood, because of their
delicate shapes. But they are only
the fancier products of the model
maker.
Mostly Freighters
Principally the models worked with
are the less graceful forms of freigh-
ters and passenger boats. These
models, made on a scale of 1 to 40,
and well over six feet long, are cast
in wax in a rough clay mold. The
wax slab, weighing about 380 pounds,
is then carefully machined to draw-
ing specifications. The model is
tested in the tank at varying speeds,
its shape modified and then tested
again. ,
About ,a dozen wax models are
kept on hand at a time. The labora-
tory's supply of wax is one and a

of organ of the School of Music, will

tion of small children, may attend

half tons, and old models must be
melted to make new ones. Tests
just completed on a new German
freighter type with a pointed bow
revealed that the shape had not the
expected advantages. Limpert is now
putting the finishing touches on a
large, blunt model which is more
nearly like the standard freighters
now plying the lakes.
Demand For Testing Less
In normal times there is plenty
of demand by shipbuilding compan-
ies for model making and testing,
says Limpert. In a good year as
many as 30 models are made, but
since the decline of shipbuilding with
the depression, requests for such ex-
perimental work have fallen off. The
last work done by the local labora-
tory for the government was done
three, years ago, when some bulbous-
bowshapes were teste for the Ship-
ping Board.
Limpert laughed at the idea of
testing models of racing boats. With
the machine's top speed fixed at 400
feet per minute the model would
have to be made so small that tests
with it would have no significance.
"Working with high speed hydro-
planes is a matter of cut and try
on the full-sized job," he said.
Prof. H. C. Adams of the engineer-
ing school, is soon to begin experi-
ments on the subject of "rolling" in
vessels. Elaborate electrical, light-
reflecting, and photo-film recording
apparatus is involved.
Besides its experimental uses, the
naval tank is used in emergencies as
a supply tank of the University high
pressure fire system.
Zeppelin Departs
For Home Hangar
AKRON, 0., Oct. 28 - (/) - The
Graf Zeppelin, with Dr. Hugo Eck-
ener at the controls, lifted from the
mooring mast at Akron Airport at
9 a. m. today and, with motors roar-
ing, began the long flight back to
Friedrichshafen, Germany.
A brilliant sun glinted on the sil-
very sides of the big dirigible as it
headed into the east on the last lap
of an ambitious triangular flight to
South and North America. The Graf's
next stop, barring accidents, will be
at Seville, Spain, when she will pro-
ceed to Friedrichshafen. The com-
mander expected to arrive at Seville
Monday afternoon.

Havana University To
Deny Support To Gran
HAVANA, Oct. 28-(P)-President
Grau faced the possibility today of
losing one of his strongest group of
supporters - students of Havana un-
iversity.
In a hectic general assembly,
speakers assailed the Student Direc-
tory, which has backed Grau, for
"breaking faith" by "continuing to
play politics after the downfall of
Machado."
Three persons were wounded on
the street during the night in an
exchange of shots between soldiers
and snipers. Court sanctions today
set Nov. 1 as the date for the open-
ing of trials of the followers of the
deposed president, Gerardo Macha-
