By ELSIE PIERCE
In an attempt to improve sani-
tation and health conditions in rural
schools and homes, surveys in Wash-
tenaw County are being carried on by
the university, under the direction
of Dr. Lloyd R. Gates, instructor in
hygiene and public health. Approxi-
mately 75 schools and 140 farms
have been inspected in these surveys,
which are the first of their kind to
be made in the state.
In examining the schools, samples
of the drinking water are taken,
lighting facilities are tested by means
of a foot candle meter, and the gen-
eral layout and condition of the
school building are recorded. Ac-
cording to Dr. Lloyd, scientific reports
obtained from these surveys will make
it easibr to eliminate haphazard
spending of government money and
labor which marked some CWA proj-
ects for repair work on country
schools.
Samples of the water supply are
brought back to Ann Arbor from
each school and farms tested by Prof.
Herbert R. Emerson, Director of the
Pasteur Institute. Evidences of a
polluted water supply have been
found in three schools and 11 farms.
- For the farm surveys, samples of
both milk and water are tested, and
a detailed report is made on the con-
dition of the stock, and of the farm
buildings.
Co-operating with the university
examiners are the Washtenaw County
Planning Commission, directed by
Prof. Lewis Gram of the engineer-
ing school, the City Health Depart-
ment of Ann Arbor, and Miss Cora
Hayes, Rural School Commissioner.
Five men, all of whom have had
training in survey work, are em-
ployed on the enterprise, and are as-
sisted by 29 students. It is estimated
that it will take three months to com-
plete the work.

Little three-year-old Muriel Morgan travelled all the way from the
home for widows and orphans maintained by the Veterans of Foreign
Wars at Eaton Rapids, Mich., to present the first "buddy poppy" to the
year to President Roosevelt. James E. Van Zandt, commander-in-chief
of the veterans' organization, stands behind the President's desk.

Curtis And Isaacs Talk
At Medical Convention
Dr. Arthur C. Curtis, secretary of
the School of Medicine; and Dr. Ra-
phael M. Isaacs, professor of internal
medicine at the Simpson Memorial
Institute, spoke before the Associa-
tion of American Physicians Wednes-
day in Atlantic City.
They left Ann Arbor Saturday and
expect to return sometime this after-
noon. While there they also attended
the American Society For Clinical Re-
search.
They were accompanied by Dr.
Frank N. Wilson, Dr. Paul S. Barker,
and Dr. Cyrus C. Sturgis of the de-
partment of internal medicine.
Adams To Go To Europe
For Research On Treaty
According to members of the Wil-
liam L. Clements Library staff, Di-
rector Randolph G. Adams, who has
been in the East for the past three
months, is expected to leave for Eur-
ope either today or tomorrow to do
research work on the peace treaty of
1783.
Dr. Adams conferred with Regent
William L. Clements in New York
Tuesday, about the proposed trip, but
their decision was not made public.
Regent Clements, returning from
Florida, is making several purchases
at the auction sale of the Terry book1
collection.1

Survey Shows
Job Increase
For Graduates
COLUMBUS,.O., May 2.-(/P) -Im-
proving business conditions have
smoothed the road for the 1934 college
graduates.
A survey of Ohio State University
departments today showed hundreds
of seniors already arranged for posi-
tions upon graduation in June.
The university announced that
prospects for employment are much
better than a year ago. Members of
the educational faculty, however, de-
clined to make a prediction, saying
the outlook for.teachers depends on
settlement of school finances. Most of
the dental seniors have made con-
tracts; nearly all graduates in flori-
culture, dairy technology, poultry hus-
bandry and agricultural engineering
have been placed, and other agricul-
tural departments report improved
employment prospects.
Demand in several engineering de-
partments is reported as "greater than
the supply" with representatives of
various industries coming to the cam-
pus to negotiate with students for the
first time in three years.

Aided by the financial backing of
.he CWA, wind tunnel experiments
;onducted in the aeronautical engi-
aeering department are now being
devoted to a new phase of this re-
search field, according to Prof. Mil-
ton J. Thompson, who is in general
charge .of the investigations.
In general, wind resistance experi-
ments have been carried on in tun-
nels where an approximately uniform
flow of air has been maintained. In
the correlation of experimental re-
sults obtained from laboratories all
over the country, certain serious dis-
crepancies have been found which
have long puzzled the authorities.
It is now believed that these vari-
ations in wind resistance measure-
ments are the result of the failure on
the part of experimentalists to pro-
vide a sufficiently uniform and non-
turbulent flow of air to correspond
with actual wind conditions in the
atmosphere through which the air-
planes must fly, Professor Thompson
pointed out.
The new experimental work in the
aeronautical laboratory has been de-
signed to investigate these recent
theories of air turbulence, or varia-
tions in the speed and direction of
air movements. It has been found
that spherical balls and disc-shaped
objects are best adapted to study the
effects of air turbulence, and the lat-
est investigations have been based on
models of these general shapes.
The actual testing of the wind rep
sistance produced by the various
types of airplanes is conducted by
the use of different sizes of. airplane
wings, whose behavior in wind tun-
nel experiments has been of primary
importance in the development of
airplane, designs, Prof. Thompson
stated.
The aeronautical laboratory hopes
to check their experimental data
against open-air flight conditions
when the research has sufficiently
progressed and when financial sup-
port makes possible such a project.
READS BOTANY PAPER
At the meeting of the Michigan
Botanical Seminar yesterday after-
noon in the Natural Science Build-
ing, Miriam G. Groner, Grad., read
a paper on "The comparative physi-
ology of green and chlorophyll-de-
ficient types in maize."

These White

Pal

Im Beach Tuxedos
Some like them single, some like them
double-breasted. But the important thing
is that formal fashion says they're right..
For moonlit nights on deck or ashore...
for dancing or courting when the day's
work is done...
They come with black Palm Beach
tuxedo trousers . . . a surprisingly smart
and festive combination that makes you
feel like stepping.
They won't soil as easily as other wash-
able suits, and they will hold their shape
through all the ardours of a big night.
