Competition For
German Award
Is Announced
Prof. Nordmeyer Outlines
Requirements And Rules
For Those Entering
Announcement of the annual com-
petition for the Bronson Scholarship
open to all undergraduate students in
German, was made yesterday by Prof.
Henry W. Nordmeyer, chairman of
the German department.
The scholarship is to be paid out
of the interest accruing from a fund
donated to the German department
by a former student of the Univer-
sity, in honor of Prof. Calvin Thomp-
son, chairman of the department at
that time, explained Professor Nord-
meyer. The scholarship is awarded
to the most promising student in the
German department.
Sometime in March, Professor
Nordmeyer pointed out, essay exam-
inations will be held for all con-
testants the subject matter of the
examination to include two questions
on each of the following periods of
German literature: Age of Goethe,
Age of Romanticism, Drama of the
19th century, Novelle of the 19th
century, and Naturalism and Neo-
romanticism. The German depart-
ment, he stated, hastprepared a read-
ing list indicating the literary ma-
terial to be studied, before a student
can compete for the prize.
In addition to taking the examina-
tion, Professor Nordmeyer pointed
out, it will be necessary for each stu-
dent to demonstrate to the satisfac-
tion of the faculty members that he
has read the required material in
German.
The judges of the competition, it
was announced, will include Profes-
sors. Willey, Hildner, and Nordmeyer,
all of the departmental faculty.
Will Vote On Care
Of Welfare Cases
A proposed agreement between the
city of Ann Arbor and Washtenaw
County for the care of the city's wel-
fare cases has been approved by the
city council's welfare and budget com-
mittees and will be presented to the
city council for a vote at the regular
council meeting Monday night, it was
announced yesterday.
Under the plan, by contributing its
share of about $46,000 a year to the
county. relief burden, or approximate-
ly 45 per cent of the total, the city
in turn becomes eligible for state
aidfor relief through the county com-
mission, instead of having to bear
the:entire load itself.
The source of the necessary funds
have iiot yet been determined, but it
is hoped that the city will obtain suf-
ficienta evenue from the payment of
delquent taxes to provide the first
payment, due in January under the
proposed sharing plan.
$25,000 Suit Begun
By Former Carrier
A suit for $25,000 damages con-
sisting of "permanent and incurable
injuries" received in an automobile
accident June 7, naming the Ann Ar-
bor Transportation Co. and Duane H.
Edson, 1604 Shadford Rd., as co-de-
fendants was instituted yesterday by
Clarence F. Zahn, 37 years old, form-
er local mail carrier.
Zahn alleged in his bill that both
the:bus in which he was riding at the
time of the collision and the other
car .involved, driven by Mrs. Helen

Edson, were exceeding the 15-mile-
per-hour limit when they collided at
the intersection of South Fifth Ave-
nue. and Washington Streets, and
that the Edson car had furthermore
failed to come to a stop before en-
tering Fifth Avenue, a through street.

Members of the congregation of the First Christian church of Thom-
son, Ill.; have brought suit against their pastor, the Rev. David T. Todd
(left) ,32, seeking to enjoin him from preaching that some of Christ's
miracles were mythical and other doctrines they contend are contrary
to fundamental principles of the church. The pastor is shown as he
appeared in district court at Mt. Carroll, Ill., with his attorney, Stephen
Reynolds of Chicago, to defend his tenets.

Called 'The Land Where
White Men Failed' In
University Broadcast
Greenland, "the land where the
white man failed," its history, climate,
and dimensions, were described by
Prof. Ralph L. Belknap, of the ge-
clogy department over the WJR
broadcast from the University studio
yesterday.
"This island," declared Professor
Belknap, "was colonized by the Norse-
men under the direction of Eric the
Red in about 981 A.D." He named it
Greenland because it was easier to
enlist recruits for a colony in a land
called Greenland than it would have
been in another Iceland.
Icelandic Colonists
Colonists from Iceland who settled'
on the ice-free land, derived their
living from the soil, augmented by
hunting and fishing, the speaker said.
They flourished for a while, but be-
cause of the burning of the principle
European seaport with which they
traded, they were cut off for a. time
from European supplies. "As a result,
in spite of the white man's ingenuity,
the next ships from Europe in the
early part of the 17th century could
find none of the Norsemen. They
had failed completely - become ex-
tinct," Professor Belknap declared.
At the same time of the disappear-
ance of the Norsemen, the Eskimos
came across from America into North
Greenland, bringing with them an
entirely new mode of life, Professor
Belknap added.
Two Attempts
"A second attempt to colonize
Greenland by the Danes succeeded,
and Greenland came into the control
of that government. At present stores,
schools,fhospitals and a training
school for teachers are furnished the
Greenlanders. "The hospital, manned
by Danish doctors, and both Danish
and native nurses, are free to the
natives," he said.
Greenland, Professor Belknap ex-
plained, is 14 times the size of Mich-
igan, and 95 per cent of the entire
land is covered by a great inland
glacier. The temperature at the
northern end is much different than
that of the lower end, where it may
become as high as 80 degrees in the
shade in summer, he added. In the
northern end in summer the maxi-
mum is fifty degrees, while in winter
it may become as low as a minus 85
degrees on the ice caps.

color natural color process film at
lower costrthan the similar film for
snapshot cameras, "Super-X," cap-
able of taking night pictures by the
light of an ordinary lamp-bulb at
one twenty-fifth of a second, and
fine-grain films making possible great
enlargements without loss of detail.
The International Research Corp.
also announced plans to produce the
various grades of film on daylight-
loading spools in short lengths for
35 or more pictures. The film will
be made for the reversible process,
at present obtainable only in the
jwider.16-millimeter professional film,
by means of which the film negative
may be reversed and the positive pic-
tures projected on a screen for view-
ing, printing, or enlargement.
The prime objective of the Inter-
national Research Corp. in develop-
ing the Argus, is, according to Mr.
Verschoor, the lowering of all costs
in photography. With the new cam-
era they plan to lower not only the
initial price and the price of acces-
soiies, but the expense of developing
and printing, first by the use of the
less expensive motion picture film,
and secondly by the combination of
the two processes into one.
Instead of pasting prints in an
album, or handing them out to be!
viewed by one individual at a time,
Mr. Berschoor pointed out the con-
venience with which the results of an
entire year's photography might be
carried about in a small roll and pro-
jected on a screen in two and three-
foot images.
To simplify the enlarging process.
the cdmpany is producing along with
the camera a lighting hood fitting on
the back camera in such a way that
the developed film may be projected
through the lens of the camera onto
an attached sci:een for printing, The
camera thus serves as the principle
part of an inexpensive and simple
printing-box or enlarger. For this
purpose, the lens is air-spaced to pre-
vent damage from the heat of the
lamp.
The difficult problem of focus is
eliminated by the feature of two
objectives, one putting every object
between 20 feet and infinity in focus.

and the other focussing on every ob-
ject between six and 20 feet. The
change is made by turning the barrel
of the lens and pulling it out.
The camera is light and compact,
contained in a two-piece shell of hard
bakelite with a removable back, and
is five inches long and two inches
wide. An optical eye-level finder is
mounted on top.
SUill another interesting feature of
the construction is a gear motivated
by the film perforations, which not
only locks each of the double-frame
films into position so that they may
be tightened for a flat field of expo-
sure, but motivates in turn an expo-
sure counter on the top of the camera.
Available accessories include filters,
lens shades, carrying case, portrait
attachment, cable release, and the
combined enlarger-projector.
Plans for the distribution of the
Argus count heavily on sales to
schocls for use in laboratory photog-
raphy and for lecture illustration,
where miniature photography is es-
sential but often too expensive.
