tianity" at 7 p.m. today in the parish
hall auditorium of the Zion Lutheran
Having visited Russia this summer
with the 1935 Sherwood Eddy sem-
inar, Dr. Krauss has had occasion
to gather accurate information on the
frequently misinterpreted conditions
in Russia, according to Dr. Edward
Blakeman, director of religious edu-
cation of the University.
Dr. Krauss has been active in an
effort to federate .the several divi-
sions of the Lutheran church in Ger-
many, Holland, Denmark, Norway,
Sweden and the United States. The
fact that prior to the World War
there was a large Lutheran member-
ship in Russia makes Dr. Krauss'
speech of especial interest, Dr. Blake-
man announced.
The speech, which is to be given
before the Lutheran Student Club, is
open to the general public as well
as the congregations of Trinity and
Zion Lutheran churches.

University's New Solar Tower At Lake Angelus

* * * * * *

University Builds Solar Tower

EAt Lake Ang
Tower Made Possible By
Grant From Rackham
Fund, Curtis States
At the McMath-Hulbert-McMath
observatory at Lake Angelus near
Pontiac, operated by the University,
there is now being built a solar tower,
which, in the opinion of Prof. Heber
D. Curtis, director of the University
Observatory, promises to be one of the
Observatory's most powerful research
instruments. In addition to this, he
predicts, it will be perhaps the most
efficient instrument of its type in
existence, and the only one between
California and Europe.
The outer structure of the tower
proper is shown in the picture above,
but the design comprises a number
of features that are not visible in the
simple outlines of the tower and dome.
Beneath the tower, Professor Curtis
explained, is a concrete-lined well 30
feet deep, in which the spectrographic
apparatus will be placed. The tower
itself is double, he added, with an
outer tower carrying the dome and
its mechanism, as well as stairways
and other structural units, and an
inner tower, carefully insulated from
the outer one, which carries all the
optical parts within the dome and the
well, thus shielding them from any
vibrations that might be set up by
the wind or by the movement of ob-
Defines Solar Tower
Professor Curtis described a solar
tower as "a special type of telescope
designed for work on our nearest star,
the sun." As the sun moves across
the sky during the day, he explained,
an ordinary form of telescope must
work at constantly changing angles,
and the effects of flexure thus intro-
duced are very injurious in the very
precise work of photographing solar
features in some one chosen wave-
length of light. Temperature changes
are also difficult to avoid.
In the solar tower, according to
Professor Curtis, all the motions are
concentrated in an arrangement of
mirrors called a coelostat, and the
beam of light from the sun passes
first through a vertically located tele-
scope in the well. The effects of flex-
ure are thus annulled, and the posi-
tion of the instrument does not
change, while the underground loca-
tion of the vital parts makes the con-
trol of temperature changes much
The construction of this solar tower
was made possible, Professor Curtis
pointed out, by a grant from the
Rackham Fund, and the design is due
wholly to Director Robert R. McMath,
of the McMath-Hulbert-McMath Ob-
servatory. Mr. McMath visited the
installations at Mt. Wilson before
making the designs, and thus profited
by the experience and mistakes of
earlier observers.
Ingenious Features Included
He has in addition included many
features of great ingenuity which will
make this one of the world's most effi-
cient instruments in this field of
work, Professor Curtis said. The
tower is located 50 feet to the north
of the present observatory at Lake
Angelus, and all the various motions
and controls will be used by merely
extending the electrical circuits to the
new tower.

elus observatory
According to Professor Curtis, it
will be possible to do fundamental
work on the solar spectrum with the
new instrument, utilizing a 30-foot
spectrograph in the deep well. He ex-
plained, however, that the primary
purpose of the new instrument is to
carry on the work which has been
done with the spectroheliokinemato-
graph, an instrument for solar pho-
tography. With this instrument the
first continuous records of the birth,
change and decay of solar prom-
inences have already been secured,
and this hitherto untouched field is
of such promise that work in it must
be carried on with more powerful
It is expected by Professor Curtis
that the new solar tower will be
ready for use in about six months.
"This new and powerful tool of re-
search," he predicted, "will secure
new data of great value in our studies
of the titanic and ever-changing phe-
nomena of the surface of our sun."
