Dr. K. Chen To Lecture
On 'Ephedrine' Monday;
Slides To Be shown
Dr. K. K. Chen, director of phar-
macological research, Lilly Research
Laboratories in Indianapolis, willr
speak on "Ephedrine" on Monday,
March 26 at 4:15 p.m. in the Chem-
istry Amphitheatre.
Ephedrine is the active principle
of Ma Huang, one of the medicinal
herbs of the old Chinese pharmacQ-
peia. Ma Huang was tasted by the
Emperor Shen Nung, father of Chi-
nese agriculture, some 5100 years ago
and he placed it in the list of recom-
mended drugs. The introduction of
this old Chinese drug into western
medicine was largely due to the
studies of Dr. Chen in 1924. Since
the introduction of ephedrine into
medicine, it has been extensively used
because of its pharmacological prop-
erties, many of which resemble those
of epinephrine of the adrenal glands.
Dr. Chen's lecture will be illus-
trated by slides and should be of in-
terest to the general public.
Measures For Control Of
World Wheat Suggested
LONDON, March 23.-(P)-Dras-
tic measures for the quantitative
control of world wheat movement and
a minimum price barrier were drawn
up by a commission of experts to-
day for submission to the interna-
tional wheat conference in Rome
starting April 6.
The coupling of these projects in
an effort to raise and stabilize wheat
prices would cause an even more com-
plete transformation of conditions in
world grain markets than was vis-
ualized when delegates first began to
explore gingerly the controversial
price proposal last November.

Committee Chosen
To Select Scholars
A committee of five has been nom-
inated to select the winners of the
Michigan Alumni Undergraduate
Scholarships of the University of
Michigan Club of Ann Arbor, accord-
ing to an announcement issued by
T. Hawley Tapping, general secre-
tary of the Alumni Association.
Tapping stated that the member-
ship of the group includes Herbert
Slosson, former superintendent of
local schools, Prof. Louis W. Keeler of
the School of Education, Charles W.
Henderson, Mrs. Theophile Klingman
and Miss Gladys Caldwell.
This committee will name the win-
ners of the scholarships at Ann Arbor,
University, St. Thomas, Chelsea, Mi-
lan and Saline High Schools.
Prof. Rawsell Consults
On CCC Camp Operation
Willett F. Ramsdell, professor of
forestry land management was in
Lansing yesterday consulting with L.
R. Schoenmann, who is in charge of
Michigan's emergency conservation
work under which the thirty-seven
C.C.C. camps of the state are operat-
Professor Ramsdell was active in
the origination of the C.C.C. a year
ago and has spent a great deal of
time with the organization since its
Dean Cooley To Receive
Visit From Sailor Son
Capt. Hollis M. Cooley, after an
absence of several years, is expected
here Monday on a short visit with
his father, Dean Emeritus Mortimer
E. Cooley.
Captain Cooley, who left the Uni-
versity to begin training at the Unit-
ed States Naval Academy, has been
transferred from the Naval base at
Washington, D. C., at which he has
been stationed for several years; to
the Bremerton Navy Yards, near Se-
attle, Wash.

The University laboratories have
developed, for the first time, a meth-
od of determining, quantitatively, the
degree of the wetting of a solid by a
liquid, Prof. Floyd E. Bartell of the
physical chemistry department, said
yesterday, in an interview.
Professor Barthell pointed out that
infinite possibilities are laid open be-
cause of this discovery. Now the
degree of adhesion can be calculated
quantitatively, and due to this, the
lacquer, varnish, and safety glass
industries, along wth many others,
will be greatly benefited.
Professor Barthell added that this
will even have a bearing on physiolo-
gy and medicine, since the depth
that disinfectants may penetrate can
be determined.
The effect has already been far-
reaching, but still greater results are
expected, he concluded.
8:00 p.m. the men and boys choir
will present the cantata, "Victory Di-
vine" by Christopher Marks.

Kansas Nobletan
Is Revealed As A
Bad Check Passer
LAWRENCE, Kansas, March 23-
Further developments in the case of
"Count Paul Gregory Herschel von
Leibnitz" who has been fooling the
campus at the University of Kansas
for the past two weeks, kept the
story before the public for another
day or two.
"Leibnitz," who had secured a
vaudeville contract here, slipped up
in his story, and after confessing to
be an Austrian Jew and no Ger-
man, but just plain. Henry G. Leiby,
he left by the fire-escape.
Just when the affair was believed
closed, Lawrence authorities received
information from Ventura County,
Calif., that Leiby was an old hand
at that particular form of confidence
game, and had been imprisoned on
bad check and theft charges.
Scientists Are
Center Of New
Picture Exhibit
Display Is Sponsored By
Honorary Society And
Professor Soule
A series of pictures of famous sci-
entists and short sketches of their
lives are being exhibited in the libra-
ry, in some of the classrooms, and
in the first floor showcase, of the
chemistry building, by Phi Lambda
Upsilon, the national honorary chem-
ical society.
These pictures are selected from
the private collection of Prof. B. A.
Soule-of the analytical chemistry de-
partment. The lives are written up
by the members, with the co-opera-
tion of Professor Soule.
One of the exhibits is placed in
the first floor showcase to remain for
about two weeks. The pictures of
Cavendish and Bunsen have already
been shown, and Gay-Lussac's is now
on exhibition. However, it will soon
be replaced by that of Charles James,
who is famous for his work with
rare earths. His habit of "serving
tea at midnight to his co-workers"
and his dephiums (larkspurs) have
also helped toward making him re-
nowned. He taught at the University
of New Hampshire, and did his most
notable research work there.
Ultimately, all the pictures will be
placed in the showcase, but this will
not be possible during the present
NEW ORLEANS, March 23-)-

Studewts To Study
Federal Procedure
LAWRENCE, Kans., March 23.-
Plans for giving worthy college stu-
dents an opportunity to secure a
working understanding of the gov-
ernment at Washington under the
auspices of the National Student Fed-
eration of America were recently
given the approval of the Men's Stu-
dent Council at the University of
Under a program worked out by
Assistant Secretary of Commerce
Chester H. McCall, government ap-
propriations would provide opportu-
nities for 200 students chosen in 1935
to spend the summer months in
Washington studying the workings of
the federal government. The plan as
outlined for lectures by leaders of
governmental departments, accom-
panied by observations of actual
working sessions of the various
groups. It is the belief of the Na-
tional Student Federation that this
project will aid greatly in raising the
general standard of government.
