LANSING, Dec. 6. -(P) - The
Michigan High School Principals as-
sociation, closing its annual conven-
tion, elected Ray Bechtold, Flint, as
president to succeed Forrest G. Aver-
ill of East Grand Rapids. It chose
Edgar G. Johnston of Ann Arbor as
vice president and E. E. Johnson, Ish-
peming, secretary and treasurer.
Mr. Johnson is principal of the
University High School in Ann Arbor.
T. Luther Purdom, in charge of
placement for the University of Mich-
igan, told the assembled principals
yesterday that it is up to the teacher
to discover youthful misfits, because
doting parents are slow to realize
their childrens' backwardness in
He recommended a diagnosis of
each child to determine for what he;
is best equipped mentally and phys-
ically. The information, he said,
should guide the child into study
courses that will help his later life.
Purdom asserted one third of all
college students who flunk are above
the average in intelligence. He said
generally these failures are due to
the fact the student has enrolled in
acourse for which he has no natural

and failed to broadcast. the latest cently took advantage of the facilities

reports from the University Broad-j
casting System indicate.
Having given music lessons every
Monday morning over WJR from
Morris Hall, Professor Maddy recent-
ly was almost stumped when he was
called out of town and feared he
would be unable to give his customary
radio talk. Prof. Waldo Abbot, who
is in charge of the University sta-
tion, came to Professor Maddy's aid,
however, suggesting that the latter
take advantage of the recently in-
stalled recording apparatus.
A record of the lesson was made'
by Prof. Maddy before leaving Ann
Arbor. His speeches were timed ex-
actly, so that Professor Abbot, who
also appears on the same program,
could speak when his cue came. When
Monday came, the program went off
without a "hitch." According to Tur-
rel Uleman, assistant director of the
station, WJR commented favorably
upon the broadcast.
The recording equipment has found
many other uses since it has been
installed, Uleman said. Many alumni
clubs and other organizations desired
to have President Ruthven and other
notables speak to them, but because
of their inability to -attend, the re-I
carding equipment was employed.
The words of the speaker, as he
talked at the studio at his leisure,
were transmitted upon records, which
were played at the alumni meetings,
Uleman explained.j

of this apparatus, Uleman said. The
mechanism was taken to its studio,
and as a University extension class in
radio broadcasting produced the ac-
tual noises, recordings were taken.
Four or five different kinds of ap-
plause were taken, Uleman said, be-
ginning with the spontaneous and
united applause and ending with the
scattered, but gradually crescendo
Many of the students in speech
classes also have recordings taken
before and after they have taken
1hese classes, in order to see what
improvement has been made in their
vocalization. Seldom, said Uleman,
do any of the students recognize
their voice.
Dean James B. Edmonson, of the
School of Education, returned yester-
day from Louisville, Ky., where he
has been attending the Convention
'of the Association of College ancd
Secondary Schools. He addressed
the convention Thursday and spoke
on "Needed Changes in Secondary

NEW YORK, Dec. 6. -(P) - Bus-
iness entered the final month of the
year with a fresh burst of speed, Dun
& Bradstreet, Ipc., said in its weekly
review issued today.
Cold weather and snow brought in-
creases in retail sales in all parts
of the country, the survey said. "The
advance from the previous week's
level was one of the widest in nearly
six months and ranged from 8 to 20
per cent, with the estimated gain over

"In a number of lines difficulty was
experienced in obtaining shipments
on dates specified, and shortages to-
gether with the heavier demand
pushed prices more definitely up -
