Alumni Clubs
Start 10-Year
Program Fund
To Be Used In The Work
Of The Summer Camp
Of The Forestry School
The University Clubs of the elev-
enth alumni district inaugurated a
Ten-Year Program Fund during their
recent convention at Manistique.
The fund is to be used as part of
the national program to assist in the
work and the improvement of the
summer camp of the School of For-
estry and Conservation. Each club in
the district is to contribute funds
during the coming year that are to
be used as directed by succeeding
district conventions.
President Emory J. Hyde of the
General Alumni Association was the
Ann Arbor representative present at
the convention.
The meeting opened with a noon
luncheon, with the business session
of the eleventh district following. In
the afternoon a golf tourney and
other sports occupied thedelegates,
while the evening was featured by a
dinner-dance. Some of the winners of
Michigan Alumni Undergraduate
Scholarships and of Michigan Honor
Trophies were guests of honor of the
President Ruthven has assured
alumni officials that he will be able to
visit the eleventh district during the
fall, and the preparing of his itinerary
and the handling of the other details
of his visit were assigned to the dis-
trict president.
Charles M. Humphrey, Jr., '86L,
succeeds Arthur F. Hall, '20, as dis-
trict president.
W. A. "Bill" Ingram, football coach
at the University of California, said
that a player's outfit will weight eight
and a half pounds this fall, compared
to 22 pouyds 10 years ago.

Workers in the University physics
laboratories have discovered that ul-
tra-short radio waves may be used
in the investigation of molecules and
atoms as well gas in communication.
After theoretical physicists had ad-
vanced the theory that certain mole-
cules should respond to ultra-short
waves, Prof. N. H. Williams, of the
physics department, and Mr. C. E.
'Free Show' Nets Profit
And Jail For Salesman
CHICAGO, Sept. 17.- (P)-The
spectacle of thousands passing, free!
of charge, into Soldiers' Field, police
said, ran crosrsgr ain to Sam Millard's
enthusiasm for profit.
He posted himself at an entranceI
last night, police said, and sold ticketsf
to the gullible at $1 a seat for the
"Drama of Chicago on Parade."
Police said they found a number of
World's Fair tickets Millard had col-
lected, on the pretense of returning
them after the show. One complain-
ant asserted Millard sold him 100

Radio Short Waves Are Used
In Molecular Investigations

Cleeton set out to study the ammonia
molecule by this method.
Their experiments have verified the
idea that each atom and molecule is
in a sense a radio receiving set, and'
in so doing have opened up a new
field of scientific investigation. The
desired information about the am-
monia molecule was obtained by this
The radio transmitting set devel-
oped to conduct these experiments is
probably the smallest every construct-
ed. It consists of a tube one-fourth
of an inch in diameter and one inch
high; the short radio waves thus pro-
duced were one centimeter long and
were the shortest continuous radio
waves on record:
With this new equipment for study-
ing molecules it may be possible to
render invaluable aid to the field of
medicine. Ultra-short radio waves may
take their place in treatment of dis-
ease along with the X-ray, ultra-
violet, and infra-red rays.

WillMeet To
Arrangre Late
Penalty Rule
Before any definite arrangements
are made for lateness penalties this
year, a joint meeting of Judiciary
Committee, and the chaperones of
the dormitories and sororities will be
held, according to Kathleen Car-
penter, '35, chairman of judiciary.
It is probable, Miss Carpenter said,
that the penalties for violation of the
lateness rules will be more severe than
before, but it is believed that the
house mothers will have valuable sug-
gestions to offer.
