Radio Station
Is Sent 1,500
eries On American Art Is
Most Popular For First
Seven Weeks
Almost fifteen hundred mail re-
quests have been received by the
Uiversity Broadcasting Service for
oopes of radio talks given during the
first seven weeks of the 1935-36 sea-
son, Professor Waldo Abbot, director,
diselosed yesterday.
The American art-history series,
with seven programs, headed the list
with 327 requests, the parent educa-
tion series, with seven programs, had
252 requests, and the geography and
tt el series, with seven programs,
followed with 235 requests.
The Michigan, My Michigan Series,
with seven programs, had 226 re-
quests; the University research ser-
ies, with six programs, had 184 re-
cuests; and the home planning and
building series, with seven programs,
had 117 requests. The remaining
ircjtests were divided among the
series dealing with the eras in Eng-
lsh literature and the lives of the
nations, each having three programs.
Copies of the address by Prof.
Felx G. Gustafson, of the botany de-
partment, entitled "What Causes
Leaves to Change Colors," were more
desired by radio listeners than any
other single speech. This address,
along with 17 others, has been mime-
ographed, Professor Abbot stated.
The speech on the "Indians of Mich-
igan," by Prof. Carl E. Guthe, direct-
or of the Museum of Anthropology,
and that on "Revolt of Israel's Pro-
' phets" by Prof. Leroy Waterman,
head of the department of Oriental
languages and literature, were also
very popular.
The art lectures, given by Adelaide
Adams, instructor in fine arts, and
Marie Abbot, Grad, were very well
liked by the radio audience, statistics
given by Prof. Abbot show,, for five
of these discussions were mimeo-
graphed. This series has resulted in
a demand for a total of 1,635 mimeo-
graphed copies.
Almost 5,000 letters have been
mailed to the 528 teachers who have
requested the weekly service an-
nouncing radio programs, Professor
Abbot stated.
The new recording equipment in-
Stalled in the broadcasting studio, he
continued, has served five University
of Michigan Clubs and has made
thirty recordings for the members of
the faculty and students.
Records of speeches by University
a0toities havebeen made by this
e4uipmhenit. The University of
l ddhigan Club of Philadelphia, com-
iiantig to Professor Abbott about
ocords sent to them said that "the
jeal hit of the evening was the re-
6&rded talk of President Ruthven,
M. Hyde, and yourself. Our vanity
*i flattered when we heard talks
ly such eminent Michigan person-
es addressed especially to us."

Address Given
On Moth's Sex
Goldschmidt Describes His
Wide Experimentation
With Aid Of Slides
Prof. William Goldschmidt, lead-
ing German geneticist, speaking yes-
terday in the Natural Science Audi-
torium, discussed the recent advances
which he has made in the study of
sex determination by genes, hormones
and chromosomes.
He described in simple terms, the
extensive experimentation which he
has done with gypsy moths in the
development of inter-sexual types,
illustrating his talk with slides. Trac-
ing the subject from its beginning, Dr.
Goldschmidt explained the functions
of chromosomes in the first fertili-
zation process. The two types of sex
chromosomes, he said are the de-
terminants of sex in normal cases.
In abnormal cases, such as that
of the inter-sexual type, he pointed
out, the sex may change in a given
point in its early development. In
his work, Dr. Goldschmidt has been
able to determine accurately the point
at which this change may occur.
The animal in its original sex, he
said, is known as the genetic male or
female, whichever the case may be,
and it is possible for a genetic female
to become exactly like a male. In the
case of the gypsy moth, which Dr.
Goldschmidt has done most of his
work with, the main changes take
place in the antennae and the gen-
Each individual, he explained, must
contain genes of both sexes, and the
process of selection is controlled by
the chromosomes. Since the strength
of the determining factors vary in
different races of the gypsy moth,
Dr. Goldschmidt explained that he
has been able to cross different races
and get normal types, as well as
inter-sexuals of all degrees.
Sex hormones, Dr. Goldschmidt
said, occur largely in vertebrates, and
they are the determinants during and
after puberty. This is true of man,
as well as all of the lower animals.
Much work is still to be done, he
said, in the study of all of the fac-
tors, particularly hormones, but it is
possible in his belief that some day
doctors will be able to control the
sex determinants.

22 Delegyates
Of Volunteers
Indianapolis Meeting Of
Student is Described
By Dr. Blakeman
More than 2,700 students from 458
schools and colleges, including the
University, attended the Student Vol-
unteer convention held during the
holiday vacation in Indianapolis, Dr.
Howard W. Blakeman, counselor in
religious education, said yesterday.
Michigan, which had a quota of
26 delegates, sent 22 representatives
to the convention, the purpose of
which was "to present the major
questions of Christian Missions and
the opportunities for trained leaders
in various occupations abroad."
There were, said Dr. Blakeman, two
types of meetings. One involved the
assemblage of the entire delegation
to listen to speakers address them
from the platform. Among the speak-
ers at the convention were William
Temple, Archbishop of York, Dr.
Richard Roberts, Moderator of the
United Church of Canada, Dr. Toy-
ohiko Kagawa of Japan, Dr. Samuel
Zwemer, authority on Mohammedan-
ism, and Dr. T. B. Sun, of China.
Seminars were also held every day
of the convention, which was held
from Dec. 28 through Jan. 1. The
topics of the seminars dealt largely
with the problems confronting people
who go into missionary or other type
of work abroad.
The University delegation attended
a banquet at which all representa-
tives from all Big Ten schools were
present. Gail Duffendack, '38, spoke
at the banquet.
Those representing the University
included: George Abernathy, Grad.;
Mrs. Yoshi Akagi, Grad.; William
Brandt, '39; Richard Clark, '37; Ruth
de Armond; Miss Duffendack,
John Edmonds, '37; Kenneth Leis-
enring; Lawrence Louis, Grad.;
Yvonne Gulick, '38; Miriam Hall,
Grad.; Emily Morgan, Lit.; Max Shir-
ley, '39; Civili Sinhanetra,, '39Ed.;
Gbrdon Stow, Grad.; Vun Yin Ting,
'39M, Elmer Schloot, '39E; Kermit
Webb, '38; Dr. E. W. Blakeman; Rev.
and Mrs. H. L. Pickerill, director of
the Christian Foundation; and the
Rev. Norman Kunkel, associate min-
ister of the First Presbyterian Church.
College students haven't changed
much in the half-century he has
been observing them, says William
C. McCracken, retiring superinten-
dent of buildings at Ohio State.

Police Patrol
County Roads,
In Radio Car
With the new year sheriff's of-
ficers in Washtenaw County began
a new service, consisting of a night-
ly patrol of county roads by a cruiser
car manned by sheriff's officers and
directed by radio from the Michi-
gan State Police station WRDS in
East Lansing,
The car leaves the sheriff's office
at 10 p.m. each night, and is oc-
cupied with enforcement of ligour
regulations until closing time, in-
specting county beer gardens and
taverns, not in the jurisdiction of
Ypsilanti or Ann Arbor police of-
ficers. From that time until 5 a.m.
the car will then cruise county roads,
covering a different section of the
county each night.
The section of the county to be
patrolled and the roadhouses visited
each night will be known only by the
sheriff's officers, who can reach the
car in emergencies by phoning the
state police station.
