Physicists Are Giant Trans-Ocea
Discussed B y
Daniel L. Rich
Machine Age Necessitates
Greater Knowledge Of
Science, He Says
Nine hundred and ninety-nine out
of a thousand students who begin the
study of physics will probably never .; .
be physicists, said Prof. Daniel L.
Rich of the physics department in
the sixth talk of the Vocational Guid- -
ance Series given yesterday at 2 p.m.
in Morris Hall.-
Justifying the study of physics,
Prof. Rich declared, "We are using{
machines more and more, which
means that we must know more and
more about the principles underlying
their operation, repair, efficiency and . ...
their possibilities. We must know
more about how to make use of na-
ture's forces and resources. We must This giant "flying clipper" Chip
know more about such prosaic and being carefully guarded from the
important things as force, work, plane is claimed to be capable of(
power, pressure, and electricity. These of three miles a minute. It will b
are the very things discussed in
physics. So the 999 who are studying _
physics for their first and perhaps
for their last time are acquiring much
useful information even though they
never make a living as physicists."
He stated that probably 'only one
person in a million becomes recog-
nized as a world leader in physics,
but he claimed, nevertheless, that AT THE LYDIA MENDELSSOHN
there was room shd even a growing "THE ROYAL FAMILY"
demand for physicists in teaching, H-A Reviw
industry, and pure research.
"Statistics point out," Prof. Rich Play Production's second presenta-

To Convention
Bromage And Pollock To
Attend Political Science
Meeting In Pittsburgh
The University will have two dele-
gates from the political science de-
partment at the annual meeting ofs
the National Municipal League when
lit convenes for the 40th time in Pitts-
burgh next Monday.
Prof. Arthur W. Bromage will lead
a round table discussion on county
government on Monday afternoon
and Prof. James K. Pollock will be inI
charge of the panel discussion on
"Honest Elections" Tuesday morning.
Among the other subjects to be dis-
cussed at the two-day meeting are
citizen action, housing and slum clear-
ance, library problems, metropolitan
government, model tax collection law,
and "The Police Attack Crime."
A number of officers of various city
governments as well as leaders of civic
societies have signified their inten-
tion to participate in the groups tof
be led by Professor Pollock and Pro-
fessor Bromage.
Harold D. Smith, director of the
Michigan Municipal League, has been
invited to join in two discussions Sun-
day afternoon before the regular ses -
sions begin. He will confer with the
league officers on the subjects of cit-
izens councils -and citizen participa-
tion in government. Mr. Smith will
also take part in the discussion of
model tax collection law on Monday..
Science Academy Sees
Curtis' Solar 'Bomb' Film
Dr. Heber D. Curtis, director of
the University Observatory, showed
a motion picturefilm of a recent
solar "bomb" secured at the Mc-.
Math-Hulbert Observatory, before the
meeting of the National Academy of
Sciences held in Cleveland.
This was the first continuous rec-
ord of such solar phenomena to be
secured by the motion picture method.

fights with her fiancee, makes up, and
fights again with him; and Fanny,
the mother, dictates the family tradi-
tions and keeps them all worked up
about her health. They are a royal
Family, and a very entertaining one.t
Mr. Kaufman has moulded their char-
acters and their escapades into a
high-pitched, well-designed comedy
that will amuse anybody who is in his
right mind and possessed with a sense
of humor.
As for the performance of the ac-
tgrs, probably the most complete and
finished was that of Virginia Frink as
Julie. She does not run away with the
show, but her work is refined, more
subtle than some of the rest, and
graceful.Frank Funk shares honors
with her, as well as Sarah Pierce,
whose part is more difficult than that
of the others.
She has tackled the part with ser-
ious feeling for it, and is better in the
more dramatic episodes than in the
actual characterization. Charles Har-
rell, as Tony, puts so much verve
into his performance that somemay
interpret the result as overacting.
However, his Tony is different from
any other that has been seen before
and has a charm that is indigenous
to it. Mary Pray and Hattie Bell Ross
also deserve bouquets. The other por-
trayals are acceptable with the ex-
ception of that of William Halstead.
He is a much, much better director
than actor.
