Physics Group
Will Meet Here
June29And 30
Scientific Group To Hold
Its Fifth Annual Summer
Meeting At University
To Present Papers
Social Program Will Be
Included By Body For
The First Time
The American Physical Society will
meet at the University June 29 and
30, Professor H. M. Randall of the
physics department gnnounced last
night.
This will be the fifth annual sum-
mer meeting of the society, regular
meetings having been held earlier in
the year since the founding of the
organization in 1899.
This summer the meeting will pre-
sent both a scientific and a social
program. The latter has been decid-
ed upon for the particular benefit of
the many members who desire to
bring their wives and families. While
this is a decided innovation in the
program of the society it is believed
that it will prove more than agree-
able to the members.
The scientific aspect will in turn be
divided into two parts, the first con-
sisting of a series of short papers,
averaging ten minutes in length,
which will present the results of in-
dividual research. The other por-
tion will present several considerably
longer papers, covering general top-
ics of interest to the modern physi-
cist. These latter are termed invi-
tational papers by Dr. Randall.
The summer meetings have been
engaged in largely' for the purpose of
encouraging personal contacts be-
tween men whose interests lie pre-
eminently in this field, and who
otherwise might lack the chance for
comparison and contrast of research
and results with their colleagues. Con-
sequently more attention has been
paid to this side of the meetings than
in the more formal winter conven-
tions.
According to the most recent fig-
ures, 36 members of the society are
in residence here at Ann Arbor. This
figure includes all of the staff of the
physics department, and several ad-
vanced and graduate students.

Electric Power
Figures Issued
By University
Gain In The Consumption
Of Electricity For Month
Of February Shown
Figures for electricity consumption
by the University buildings for the
months of March and February were
released today by I. W. Tieuttner of
the buildings and grounds depart-
ment.
It was found that during the month
of February, 1934 as compared to the
month of February, 1933, there was
an 8 per cent increase in the amount
of electricity used. The month of
March showed a decrease of 16.7 per-
cent in electricity used as compared
to the month of March, 1933.
The University hospital, however,
was the only building on campus
which did not show a decrease in elec-
tricity for the month of March. This
was explained by the fact that there
was an increase in the number of
patients for that month which neces-
sitated an increase in the use of elec-
tricity.
A circular letter, which emphasized
the need for savings in electric power
during the months of April and May,
was sent to the heads of all depart-
ments throughout the University. This
is a part of an electricity savings cam-
paign conducted by the buildings and
grounds department during the past
year.

New Proof of
Upturn Shown
By Newspapers
Increases In Circulation
And Advertising Reveal
Business Improvement
NEW YORK, April 18. - (1') -In-
crease in newspaper circulation and
advertising over the country in the
last few months tell a story of busi-
ness upturn.
These figures, an index to trade
conditions, show that in the wake of
increased employment, trade is on the
increase.
A general survey shows that many
newspapers have an all-time high in
circulation, and that circulation now
is about 1 per cent higher than at this
time last year, according to S. P. Wes-
ton, newspaper analyist.
Retail advertising lineage, another
business barometer, also shows gains
over last year. Statistics of Media
Records, Inc., reveal that newspaper
retail advertising gained 37.6 per cent
in March over the same month last
year.
This month-by-month comparison
shows a climb in the lineage increase,
going from a 9.7 per cent gain in Jan-
uary to a 15 per cent increase in Feb-
ruary -- a gain more than doubled in
March.
Retail advertising figures indicate
that a business upturn began in Au-
gust, 1933. That month showed the
first gain over the previous year.

visions of industrial codes were par-
ticularly illuminating. They were
heard by the National Review Board
set up by the President to protest the
small business man and the consum-
er. The chairman of this board is
Clarence Darrow, whose shrewd ques-
tioning and humorous comment add-
ed greatly to the interest of the spec-
tators.
While I was present, complaints
were made by operators of indepen-
dent coal mines and by southern pen-
cil manufacturers. The coal opera-
tors claimed that they were being
frozen out by the large dealers who
controlled the code authority. The
grievances of the southern pencil
manufacturers were that the change
in labor differentials between the
north and the south was crippling
them, and that they were assessed
more than their just share to pay the
costs of code administration. They
pointed out that the assessment was
based on the number of pencils man-
Local Roosevelt Party
Netted $628 For Fund
Ann Arbor's contribution to the
Warm Springs Foundation as net1
receipts from the Presidential ball
held Feb. 22, was $628.48, according
to the final accounting of receipts
and expenditures released by Harry
A. Reifin, secretary of the local com-
mittee.
Total gross receipts were $857. Ex-
penditures, which included the or-
chestra, rental of the hall, printing,
etc., amounted to $228.52. The bal-
ance of $628.48 was the sum sent to
the Warm Springs Foundation for
:rippled children.
Crowds which attended the double
ball in Ann Arbor, which was held
in the Michigan League ballroom and
the Masonic Temple, heard Gov.
Comstock's address and also listened
to Roosevelt's radio address.

ufactured rather than on their value.
Since the southern manufacturers
make large numbers of penny pen-
cils the numerical basis was regard-
ed by them as discriminatory. They
also said the provisions of the code
were determined by the large manu-
facturers as well as the salary of the
code administrator, $25,000 a year,
which they regarded as too high. The
disclosure of the size of this salary
caused a small sensation among mem-
bers of the Review Board. The jus-
tice of these claims had not been
determined prior to my departure.
It is in these hearings that one
learns the real problems of adminis-
tration of the New Deal. Small op-
erators struggle against large ones;
employers clash with employees; ri-
val labor organizations contend with
one another for representation on
arbitration boards.
Hotels and apartment houses are
filled to capacity and autos are parked
in solid rows far out into the Mall;
in fact, the local authorities had to
forbid the parking of cars around'
the Lincoln Memorial, in order that
casual tourists might have a chance
to stop near the memorial. Were it
not for the absence of uniforms on
the streetsone might well imagine
himself back in the Washington of
World War days.

Special-Busses
To Make Trip
To Detroit Play
Transportation T o ' T h e
Romance Of A People'
To Be Provided
Today is the last day on which
reservations may be made for the
special busses taking the Ann Arbor
delegation to the student night per-
formance of "The Romance of a
People" in Detroit.
The busses will leave from Hillel
Foundation at 6:40 p.m. Saturday,
proceed directly to tl1 Olympia,
where the pageant is being held, and
return to Ann Arbor immediately af-
ter the performance.
A reduced fare has been obtained,
the round trip price being $1.10.
Seats at the pageant, in a special stu-
dent section, will cost only $1.
Two members of the Ann Arbor
committee sponsoring the pageant
here, Rabbi Bernard Heller, head of
the local Hillel foundation, and Dr.
Edward W. Blakeman, counselor of
religion, have already seen the per-
formance, and both praised it en-
thusiastically.
"The Detroit presentation Monday
night was a thousand percent im-
provement over the record-breaking
one in Chicago," Rabbi Heller said.
"It has been hailed by Detroit critics
as a superlative accomplishment."
Dr. Blakeman praised the courage
and fine work of Isaac Van Grove, di-,
rector of the pageant and former
director of the Chicago Civic Opera
Company. "He, has taken the tech-
nique of opera and applied it in pre-
senting the history of the Jewish
people in six or eight great scenes."
The cast numbers 2,000, and they
perform on the largest stage the city
has ever seen.

ed 100-150 from the rest of the state
the convention should number well
over 400. Delegates will be housed
at campus fraternities and sororities.
