Prof. Thorpe
Edits Book Of
Keat's Poems
The only annotated edition of John
Keat's complete poems and selected
letters ever published in America
has been edited by Professor Clarence
D. Thorpe, of the English department,
and it appeared this summer.
An authority was chosen to edit
each of the twelve volumes in the
Doubleday-Doran Series in Literature,
in which Professor Thorpe's book is
Professor Thorpe's book is especially
valuable because many poems of John
Keats have been found since the last
annotated edition of his works was
It was because of the tremendous
popularity of his book, "The Mind of
John Keats," written nine years ago,
that he was chosen to prepare this
volume. "The Mind of John Keats"
was a critical study of the great poet,
and was published both in America
and England, by the Oxford Univer-
sity Press.

Hillel Independents
Will HoldMeeting
Sunday night the Hillel Indepen-
dents will hold the second organiza-
tion meeting of the year at the Hillel
Foundation, it was announced yester-
day by Marion M. Sanders, '37, tem-
porary chairman.
The purpose of the organization,
Miss Sanders said, is to enable the
Jewish students on the campus who
are unaffiliated with a fraternity or
sorority to have a group of their own
and to meet their classmates. It will
sponsor an extensive social program
including dapces and teas as well as
a broad educational program, it was
stated. Lectures and educational
classes as well as reports on current
topics will be parts of its educational

NEW YORK, Oct. 18.--(WP) - An-
other problem of the rocket ships -
what to do when the air turns to
something like cotton batting in front
of the craft - has been solved by Prof.
R. H. Goddard whom Colonel Lind-
bergh visited in his guarded rocket
laboratory near Roswell. N.M.
The "cotton batting" air is some-
thing that confronts anything that
flies as fast as the speed of sound.
Its existence and effects are known
from the flight of artillery shells and
At the speed of sound the air no
longer slips freely around even a
streamlined body. It cannot because
the speed of sound is the limit of the
random speed of air molecules (their
Brownian movement).
Anything speeding at more than
sound's velocity, piles up the air in
front, pushing it along ahead like
snow before a plow.
The result is that the flying thing
"hunts." It travels in spirals. This
"hunting" motion would cause a
rocket ship to dive like a July Fourth
The big shells hold their course by

their spin. But spin cannot be used
for ships.
When Colonel Lindbergh and Col.
Harry F. Guggenheim inspected Pro-
fessor Goddard's device, they saw
something which caused Col. Guggen-
heim to renew his grants of funds
for the scientist to continue work.
It was announced that this included
a stabilizing device to make the rocket
travel straight. The nature of this
device has been kept secret.
But the files of the American rocket
society here show the mechanical
principles, from which Professor God-
dard selected.
There are two of these principles.
One is to make the rocket a tractor
instead of a pusher, the same as air-
planes, with their propellers in front.
In rocket craft this would be done
by placing the firing nozzles near the
bow, firing backward along the sides
of a ship specially designed.
The other principle is control from
the inside. It is understood that Pro-
fessor Goddard has been working on
inside control.
There are two known methods of

solving interior control, both by gyro-
scopes. The gyros are the instru-
ments used on airplanes and on ships
to keep them always pointing in a
fixed direction.
In a rocket ship a heavy gyro might
directly operate rudders to counter-
act the "hunting" motion. Or a
small, light gyro might set in mo-
tion machinery to operate similar
