University To
Put Meteorite
On Exhibition

Rose Bowl Coach

Large Specimen Given To
Observatory By McMath;
Found In Arizona
An unusually fine specimen of a
meteorite has been presented to the
University Observatory, by Mr.
Francis C. McMath, one of the Hon-
orary Curators of the observatory,
and member of the staff of the Mc-
Math-Hulbert Observatory branch
at Lake Angelus, it was announced
by Prof. Heber D. Curtis, director of
the University Observatory.
The meteorite weighs 210 pounds,
and is approximately 14 by 9 inches.
It is of very irregular contour, with
many pits in the surface, where
masses of the meteorite were blown
out by the expansion of the heated
gases, as it entered our atmosphere
at a speed of many miles a second.
Chemical analysis of the meteor-
ite yielded a composition of 91 per
cent iron, eight per cent of nickel,
and small quantities of iridium,
platinum, and microscopic diamonds
all in the uncombined state. It was
found some years ago by a cowboy,
about three and one-half miles
southeast of the famous Meteor
Crater in northern Arizona. Ac-
cording to Professor Curtis it is
probably one of the greatshower
or group of meteorites whose im-
pact is believed to have caused the"
crater.
The meteorite will be placed on
exhibition in the hall of the Ob-
servatory assoon as a suitablestand
has been constructed, it was an-
nounced.

Oliphant, Eccles
Slated For Jobs
On Commission
Roosevelt Will Name New
Federal Reserve Board
Members In January
WASHINGTON, Dec. 4. -(W) -
The name of Herman Oliphant, gen-
eral counsel to the treasury, is being
mentioned among possible appointees
to the revamped Board of Governors
of the Federal Reserve system.
The new board, which will be set
up with widened powers to control
credit as the result of banking legis-
lation passed last session of Congress,
is expected to be named by President
Roosevelt soon after Jan. 1.
Oliphant is not slated to head the
board. Indications were given some
time ago that Marriner S. Eccles will
gill that position. Eccles is governor
I of the Federal Reserve board, which
will be replaced by the new set-up.
There is no indication as to wheth-
er the President has decided on re-
placing some members of the old
board. It is recalled, however, that
the banking bill, as originally trans-
mitted to Congress, contained an age
limit that would have retired at least
two, and possibly three, of them. This
requirement was stricken out before
the measure became law.
Of the present members Charles S.
Ramlin and Adolph C. Miller are aged
74 and 70 respectively. George R.
James is "about" 70, and J. J. Thom-
as, vice chairman, is 67. Eccles and
M.S. Szymczak are both under 50.
Besides Oliphant, other names fre-
quently head in connection with
board places are John Henry Wil-
liams, economic adviser to the New
York Federal Reserve bank; Joseph
E. Broderick, former superintendent
of New York state banks, and Lewis
Williams, a former official of the Fed-
eral Reserve bank of Cleveland.

'Real Noises' Given
To University For
Broadcasting Uses
The sound of bugle calls, machine
uns, fog horns, rainfall, and thunder
:an be faithfully reproduced now by
the University Broadcasting Service,
for twenty records recently have been
given to the University by the Gen-
net Records Co.
These records, which are repro-
ductions of actual sounds and not
mere imitations, include animal, ve-
hicle, and industrial noises. In order
to make the records the Gennet Re-
cords Co. actually went to the source
of the noise. Barnyard noises, crows'
voices, miscellaneous wild animals,
and applause, as well as automobile,
airplane and train sounds are includ-
ed in the records.
They will be used in dramatic pro-
ductions given by speech and radio
classes. They will add substantially
to the supply of sound records, many
of which were made in the University
studio on the equipment obtained last
semester, Turrell Uleman; assistant
director of the Broadcasting service
said.

Museum Gets
First Continent
Plesiosaurns
A fossil reptile known as Pleisio-
saur, the first of its kind ever dis-
covered in North America, has been
received by Dr. E. C. Case, director of
the Museum of Paleontology of the
University.
The specimen was found in Wyo-
ming in some Alcove limestone
of Triassic age was sent to Dr. Case
by the state geologist of Wyoming
for identification and description.
The animal has previously been found
in rocks of equal age in Europe but
it was never before known to have
existed on this continent.
The reptile was in the stage of
transition from a land to an aquatic
form, Dr. Case said, as the seals and
seal lions of today.
The animal is of interest because
it determines the age of certain rep-
tiles which were previously unplaced,
Dr. Case said, as well as because it is
the first time it has been found in
America.
The specimen will be placed on ex-
hibition in the Museum of Paleon-
tology when it has been completely
restored.

Run For Senator
BOSTON, Dec. 4. - (P) -Gov.
James M. Curley's decision to seek
the toga of U. S. Senator Marcus
Coolidge next year presaged today,
even to the non-politically minded,
a rough and tumble Democratic pri-
mary campaign.
Curley, New England's original
"Roosevelt for President" man who
has broken with some state Demo-
cratic leaders, announced his inten-
tion last night to the Total Absti-
nence society at Rockland.
Senator Coolidge has not indicated
whether he will seek re-election.
Curley'snterm as governor expires
at the end of 1936.
