Thomas Is To
Talk In Detroit
Lecture Series
Lowell Thomas, world adventurer,
author, and radio reporter, will soon
appear in Detroit to recount his ad-
ventures around the world and on the
air. The internationally famous news
gatherer will speak Wednesday,
March 21 for the Detroit Town Hall
Series at the Wilson Theatre.
Thomas' passion for seeking news
and adventure has lured him to
many lands where he has met most
of the famous personages of today.
He has worked as gold miner, cow
puncher, and reporter and editor of
publications. During the war he was
sent to Europe on a roving commis-
sion to visit all fronts and report to
the people of the United States. It
is said that "he saw more of the
world war than any other man."
Thomas has led expeditions into
the arctic, into the tropics, and across
remote sections of Central Asia. As
a lecturer he has probably appeared
before more people than any other
man. He has delivered one lecture,
"With Lawrence in Arabia and with
Allenby in Palestine," to over 4,000
audiences in all parts of the world.

Instill Awarded
Tfravel Permit
I y U S o
ATHENS, March 13 -- 1) The
United States consulate today issued
a travel document for Samuel Instill,
Sr., Chicago fugitive, establishing his
identity. The document was for-
warded to the foreign office imme-
American oflicis said it had been
ssued at the suggestion of Greece
under permission of the United
States government at Washington
for the facilitation of visas. With
this travel document in the bosses-
lionI ofth2 foreign ministry the re-
spousibility of obtaining visas to per-
mit Insull to travel in other countries
now rests directly with Greece:
The reason for this procedure was
not immediately made public, but it
was assumed that Insull, battling
against the Greek government order
that he must leave the country on
or before Thursday, may have iciured
to pay for the visas necessary before
he can travel.
Still there was no auhenticated
suggestion as to where he would go
or how. Warrants charging him with
grand larceny and embezzlement in
connection with the collapse of his
middle-west utilities empire await
him in the United States.

New Telescope
Mirror Will Be
Poured Sunday
University Is To Be Given
Third Largest Lens As
Anonymous Donation .
Pouring of the rough disk of an 85-
inch mirror which has been anony-
mously given to the University as the
first part of a proposed new telescope'
will be witnessed in Corning, N. Y.,
by five Michigan astronomers Sun-
day, March 18.
Prof. Heber D. Curtis, director of
the University Observatory, will head
the party to consist of Dr. Robert M.
Petrie of the astronomy department,
and Judge Henry S. Hulbert, Robert
R. McMath, and Francis C. McMath,
honorary curators, of Detroit. The
securing of this mirror is regarded
locally as the beginning of a move
toward equipping the University with
the third largest telescope in the
Cast By Corning
The mirror is being cast by the
Corning Glass Works and the same
company is casting a 200-inch mirror
for the California Institute of Tech-
nology which will provide them with
the largest instrument in the worl
when completed.
A special variety of pyrex glass is
being used for these mirrors, it hav-
ing such a low coefficient of expan-
sion that it is practically equal to
fused qualrt in this respect. This
group of mirrors that is being pre-
pared at present is the first set of
important ones to be produced in
this country, Germany having been
the leader previously.
Actual pouring of the molten glass
into a mold as large as that required
for the new mirror which Michigan
will receive requires from 10 to 15
Cooling Takes Months
After pouring, the disk is allowed
to cool but later is put through an
annealing process consisting of rais-
ing it to a red heat again and then
cooling it very gradually. The entire
cooling process takes four to five
months and is generally done with
electrical heating under automatic
arrangements which lower the tem-
perature from five to ten degrees
every 24 hours.
Acquisition of the new rough disk
is a second step toward the eventual
provision of an up-to-date observa-
tory for the University, as a legisla-
tive grant previously provided the
site, a few miles north of Dexter.
Preliminary to its use the new disk
will have to be ground to shape and
an elaborate mounting constructed.
Drawings for the latter have already
been made by Professor Curtis and
consist of 132 sheets, testifying to the
intricacy of the mechanism involved.
When finished the disk will have a
clear aperture of 64 inches or pos-
sibly slightly more. The rough -disk
will be 851,% inches in diameter, 163/4
inches thick, and will weigh approxi-
mately four tons.
