Dr. Snyder Speaks Of
New Method To Find
Gun Users
Useful In Clearing
HomicideSuspects
Kynoch Shows Value Of
Wood Technology For
Crime Detection
A surprising method by which pol-
ice can tell whether or not a person
suspected of murder fired a gun was
explained yesterday at the second ses-
sion of the Institute for Law Enforce-
ment Officers by Dr. Lemoyne Sny-
der, of the Michigan department of
public health.
Nearly 125 state officials heard the
doctor tell how grains of nitrate from
the powder almost invariably become
embedded in the hand of a person
firing a revolver. "These become
embedded so, firmly that even after
several washings, they are still de-
tectable," he said.
To extract the nitrate from the
skin, Dr. Lemoyne said, melted para-
ffin is applied to the hand of the sus-
pect. The invisible particles of the
compound are embedded in the wax,
which is then pulled off, bringing the
nitrate with it.
The "reagent" used to test the
wa for nitrate is composed of dis-
tilled water, concentrated sulphuric
acid; and especially refined diphimy-
lamin, he explained. This, dropped
carefully on the paraffin, causes any
nitrate present to turn a deep violet
color, he said.
"This has a very definite value,"
declared Dr. Lemoyne, who is both a.
lawyer and physician. "It is not in-
fallible, but when it occurs, it is very
significant."
It is especially useful, he pointed
out, in determining who is and who
"1 lTit at - Also the test will
often prove whether a death resulted
from suicide or homicide, according
to Dr. Lemoyne. "If nitrate is found
on the hand of the dead person," he
asserted, "it is almost certain that
he shot himself."
An echo of the Hauptmann trial was
heard when Prof. William Kynoch of
the forestry and conservation depart-
ment talked on the "Application of
Wood Technology to Crime Detec-
tion." He described how, in the no-
torious kidnapping case, white pine
was determined by its cell structure.

Four University Students
Take First Place In The
Design Contest
Prize winning plans, submitted
from colleges all over the country in
a collaborative competition, including
architecture, landscape design, paint-
ing, and sculpture, sponsored by the
Association of Alumni of the Amer-
ican Academy in Rome, are now on
exhibition in the architectural school,
it was announced last night by Prof.

Emil Lorch, director.
The plans which were awarded first
prize, submitted by a group of four
students in the University, are in-
cluded in the exhibition. Rudolph
A. Mattern, '35A, architect; Donald
B. Gooch, '35Ed., painter; Jane H.
Higbie, '38A, sculptor, and Richard I.
Levin, '35, landscape designer, col-
laborated in producing the drawings
and were awarded a sum of $300 on
the excellence of the work.
The problem presented by the As-
sociation for the competition was to
design an appropriate building and
grounds for a natural science mu-
seum. The purpose of the competi-
tion was to present an opportunity for
the four associated fields to collab-
orate on a project. The entries were
judged by a committee composed of
20 outstanding representatives from
the fields of architecture, sculpture,
painting, and landscape design.
The Michigan team was assisted
in its work by Prof. Roger Bailey, of
the architectural school, and Prof.
George S. Ross, of the literary college.

Professor Slosso
Three Attitud

By PROF. PRESTON W. SLOSSONy
(Of The History Department) j
There are three attitudes toward
war on the part of those who don't
like it: national isolation, personal or
group isolation and cooperation.
The national isolationist says "Keep
away from Europe, that nasty place!
Keep out of the League, the Court,
all peace pacts and plans, all inter-
national conferences. Stay at home,
mind our own business, live on our
own resources and let the rest of the
world go to ruin as it will, if only
we can cower safe in our own locked
house." To this effect the Senate,
the Coughlinites, the Hearstites, the
Chicago Tribune, the Saturday Eve-
ning Post and Will Rogers.
The personal or group isolationist
says either "-Let my country declare
war if it will; I shall never enlist! I
am a War Resister, a Conscientious
Objector" or "If I alone can't stop
the war. I will join a club or a party
or rouse the working class or have a
students' strike or get up a big groupI
petition and stop war that way." To
this effect many of our ra'dicals, paci-
fists, socialists and communists.
The cooperationist says "None of

these things will suffice to stop war
or even to keep us out of its way. We B i
must use every means of joint action
possible among such men and govern-

NEW YORK, April 2.- (P) -Father

P. Long wereudescribed by the Meth-i

tonight as being in a race, along with1
Gen. Hugh S. Johnson, "for the lead-c

"The triangular contest in vitupera-

Coughlin and Long was the prelim-

port prepared by the Federation sec-
retaries, the. Rev. Dr. Harry F. Ward
and Miss Winifred L. Chappell. f
The report, described by the Fed-,
eration as an analysis of the programst
of Senator Long and Father Coughlin,
mentions :Gen. Johnson only to links

"All three of these contestants forF

aged tonight as Anglo-Polish con-

oreign policy was further emphasized
1. the foreign office's announcement
hat Pierre Laval, French foreign
ainister, would be invited to visit
Varsaw in connection with his trip to

In long conversations with Polish
tatesmen, Capt. Anthony Eden, Great
ritain's roving negotiator, was be-
ieved to have advanced negotiations

hat definite proposals could be made
o Marshal Joseph Pilsudski, minister
f war and virtual dictator, at their
ngagement for tea late today.
Commenting on the decision to in-
ite Laval to Warsaw, reliable sources
ointed out that Poland thereby indi-
ated her independence of Germany's
nfluence.
Lately French influence here has
een greatly reduced, they observe, by
he signing of the 10-year non-aggres-
ion and friendship pact with Ger-
nany, and the taking of drastic meas-
res against French business men who
ere accused of exploiting the Fran-
o-Polish alliance for their own pur-
oses.
It was considered likely that the
opics taken up during Eden's seven
ours of conferences today - he had
ome three hours more scheduled to-
iight - included, in addition to the
Eastern understanding and the para-
nount question of Russo-Polish-Ger-
nan relations, armaments, security
lemands and the Baltic Sea,
In the course of his two-hour visit
it the foreign office, Eden was reliably
eported to have outlined his findings
n Berlin and Moscow and explained
Russia's fear of the Polish-German
ggression.
A foreign office spokesman said be-
fore the conference that the reply to
his fear would be an expression of
Poland's willingness to sign the non-
.ggression pact with both her big
neighbors.
It was along this line, it was as-
umed, that the conferees worked to,.
levise some modification of the orig-
nal "Eastern Locarno," some ar-
:angement that would meet the Polish
lesire for a limited arrangement, take
nto account Germany's hostility to-
yard any mutual assistant clause and
oothe the Soviet's fear of attack.
