TUSDAY, FEBRUARY 20, 1934
VOL. XLIV No. 99
Notices
Attention of All Concerned, and
particularly of those having offices
in Haven H-all or the western portion
of the Natural Science Building, is
called to the fact that parking cars
in the driveway between these two
buildings is at all times inconvenient
to other users of the drive and some
times results in positive danger to
other drivers and to pedestrians on
the diagonal and other walks. You
are respectfully asked not to park
there and if members of your fam-
ily call for you, especially at noon
when traffic both on wheels and on
foot is heavy, it is especially ur ed
that the car wait for you in the
parking space adjacent to the north
door of University Hall. Waiting in
the driveway blocls traffic and in-
volves confusion, inconvenience, and
actual danger just as much when a
person is sitting in a car as if the
car is parked empty.

Smnall Hot Ba11
Our Planet Would Appear
Sualler Than Moon To
Distant Observers, Claim
WASHINGTON, Feb. 19 - (P) -
R d light coming from the outer edge
o the atmosphere is fooling the
whole universe about Mother Eartl,
if anybody's looking.
She's speeding through the heav-
ens disguised as a hot ball only half
as big as the moon.
Whether there's anyone out there
to be fooled by the disguise, nobody
knows.
If you should ask an astronomer
on a planet (assuming there is one)
near the North Star what the earth
is like you'd hear him express sonew
queer ideas about our old globe,
though not through any fault of his
own.
This is the finding of Dr. H. B.
Maris, of the Naval Research Lab..
oratory.
This far-away astronomer would
tell you, says Dr. Mais, that the
earth is only 1,000 miles in diameter
(half that of the moon) instead of
8,000 as it really is; that is has a
teperatue of about 1,000 degrees
Fahrenheit-too hot for life-instead
of about 60 degrees, the actual tem-
perature; and that it is about 200
times more compressed, or dense,
than it is in fact.
The cause of these mistaken ideas
would be the red light, which Dr.
Maris discovered while studying the
sky during Arctic twilight in Alaska.
To an astronomer near the North
Star, 2,796,000,000,000,000 miles
away, the earth would appear only
as a point in a telescope.
Assuming that he was so far ad-
vanced as earthly astronomer, he
therefore, like them, would have to
form his ideas of its size, heat and
density from analysis of the light
coming from it. That's where the
red light would fool him.

the campus, except a first semester
freshman is eligible to compete.

on Wednesday, February 21, at eight
o'clock, Lane Hall. Contrary to orig-

ning, the party taking its place. There
will be a charge of twenty-five cents

Ministers Are
Not Agreed On
Relgious Ideas
Questionnaire Reveals A
Big Discrepancy Of Op.
inion On Many Topics
(By Intercollegiate Press)
EVANSTON, Ill., Feb. 19 - What
should high school students be taught
to believe about God? W. W. Sloan,
graduate student, and Dr. George
H. Betts, professor of education, at
Northwestern University, wondered.'
To find out, they sent to all the'
Protestant ministers of Chicago a
questionnaire. The answers were il-
luminating.
Most of the ministers, for instance,
agreed that they did not think stu-
dents should be told God sends earth-
quakes, storms an other disasters to
punish people for evil doing. Most of
them did not believe that God keeps
a record of one's bad deeds in a big
book, although 19 per cent did be-
lieve this and 7 per cent were uncer-
tain about it.
Answers to other questions:
Did God spend millions of years
making the world? Yes, 67 per cent,
no, 15 per cent, undecided, 18 per
cent.
Will there be a judgment day? Yes,
48 per cent, No, 40 per cent, unde-
cided, 12 per cent.
Is prayer important? Yes, 99 per
cent, No, 1 per cent.
Was the Bible written down as God
told men to write it? Yes, 27 per
cent. No, 71 per cent. Undecided 2
per cent.
Almost all agreed children should
be taught God still runs the world.
Ninety-eight per cent believed God
still speaks through good men and
women.
Ninety-seven per cent agreed chil-
dren should be told Jesus is still liv-
ing.
Fifty-nine per cent agreed heaven
existed as a reward after death, Only
20 per cent would teach there is a
Hell of fire. Sixty-nine per cent were
ready to deny the existence of Hell,
and 31 per cent the existence of
Heaven.
Forty-six per cent would teach
children there is an actual being
called the Devil. Sixty per cent would
teach the existence of angels.
Seventy-two per cent believed Jesus
is God.
More than 500 ministers answered
the questionnaire.

U. Of Minnesota Receives
HaMf Million From Mayos
MINNEAPOLIS, Feb. 17- (/P) --
The famous Mayo brothers have
given a fortune to medical science
because they believe riches in private
hands often spell ruin for cohing
generations.
Drs. William J. and Charles H.
Mayo, surgeons, gave $500,000 Fri-
day to University of Minnesota. They
:aid the money came from the sick
"and we believe it ought to return tp
the sick."
"How many families," they added,
"have we seen ruined by money which
has taken away from the younger
members the desire to labor and
achieve and has introduced elements
into their lives whereby, instead of
being useful citizens, they have be-
come wasteful and sonetimes pro-
fligate?"
