Ij lj*ies' Nted
A sharp increase in the number of
"mechanical injuries" was noted in
April, due to the desire of students
to participate in games which spring
weather makes possible, according to
the monthly report of the Health
Service released yesterday by Dr.
Maurice R. McGarvey, Health Service
"ractures, sprains, wounds, bruises,
infections of the skin and dog-bites
gave us no little concern," Dr. Mc-
Garvey stated, "and were often ser-
iously incapacitating to the afflicted
individuals. We anticipate injuries
from violent physical contact, but we
continue to offer pointed suggestions
of prevention in many cases of in-
jury due to carelessness."
Dr. McGarvey viewed with alarm
the number of bicycles on the streets
and said from Health Service experi-
ence in injuries sustained from acci-
dents to bicycle riders that he con-
cluded that they do not have a
"chance with their life or limb" in
contact with automobiles, concrete
pavemnent, or both.

Extensive plans for the beautifica-
tion of highway M-17 between Ann
Arbor and Ypsilanti have been an-
nounced by the Washtenaw County
The council is now undertaking a
two weeks' drive to procure from
Murray D. Van Wagoner, state high-
way commissioner, formal acceptance
of a project which would, according
to the members of the council, trans-
form this highway into a corridor of
trees, bordered by flowering shrub-
bery and trees.
Plans for the most complete build-
ing show ever to be staged in Anni
Arbor or vicinity were started yester-
day with the announcement by the
members of the show committee that
exhibits by nearly every firm in the
city connected with the construction
industry will be housed in Grangers'
The show has been gradually in-
creasing in its scope since its original
inception by a group of local con-
struction workers. The tentative date
for the opening of the show has been,
set at May 20, and it will continue for
a month or six weeks according to the
plans of the committee.
Building tradesmen and construc-
tion supply companies as well as the
persons and firms locally connected
with them will be approached in the
near future by the show committee
headed by Mr. H. R. Buehler. A meet-
ing will be held soon to arrange the
disposition of the various exhibits, it

EDITOR'S NOTE: This is the second
in a series of articles dealing with the
exhibits that have been planned for
the Engineering Open House which
will be held in conjunction with Spring
Homecoming May 17 and 18.
By RALPH W. HURD
A special demonstration of the abil-
ity of sound to be transmitted over
a light beam will be featured by the
electrical engineejIng department as
part of its displays for the Engineer-
ing Open House.
The original sound will be picked
up by a phonograph, and carried
through a microphone to an ampli-'
fier connected to a neon tube. The
light from the tube will thus be mod-
ulated in accordance with the im-
pression made by the sound. This
light beam will be fodused.on a photo-
electric cell which will convert the
light into a modulated current. An
amplifier and loudspeaker following
the photo-electric cell will then repro-
duce the original sound, and tie dem-
onstration will be complete.
There also will be an oscillograph
connected to the photo-electric cell,
which will show a picture of the sound
coming through the loudspeaker. Vis-
itors will be allowed to talk over the
light beam and both hear and see
their own voices.
The "talking statue" and the "danc-
ing doll" will be the subject of an-
other project. By means of a spe-
cially constructed lighting box a sta-
tue can be made to appear to smile,
frown, grin, be dignified and even
seem to talk. In the same box a doll

Health Service Filled
By Measles And Colds
Measles and an unusually large
number of colds have filled the in-
firmary to capacity, Dr. William M.
Brace, Health Service physician,
"The sharp rise in the number of
colds at this time of the year is rather
unusual," Dr. Brace said. "Most of
them are of the type known as 'spring
colds,' and are probably traceable to
the present inclement weather."
