today on whether to grant the re-
prieve? When an announcement is
made it will be made to the news-
papermen at the state house.

No answer.
NEW YORK, Jan. 15. - (P) - J.
Edgar Hoover, chief of the Federal
Bureau of Investigation, met in secret
conference late today with H. Nor-
man Schwartzkopf, head of the New
Jersey state police, Police Commis-
sioner Lewis J. Valentine of New York
and Mayor LaGuardia.
At the conclusion of the half-hour
meeting, Lester B. Stone, of the may-
or's staff, said that no announce-
ment would be made concerning the
conference until tomorrow afternoon
when all four men are expected to
meet again.
BERLIN, Jan. 15. - (P) - Nazi
newspapers today attacked the "tor-
ture" of Bruno Richard Hauptmann
and lauded the German method of ex-
ecution with the ax.
In discussing the case, the Voelk-
ischer Beobachter said that Haupt-
mann, a native of Germany, was con-
victed on "circumstantial evidence,"
and that it would be "inexcusable
to place Hauptmann in the electric
Der Angriff, organ of Dr. Paul Ji-
seph Goebbels, said that the whole
principle of German punishment in
such cases is "quick, and, above all,,
certainadeath without any torture."
Pointing out that nearly a year has
passed since Hauptmann was con-
demned, it said "yet the murderer of,
the Lindbergh child walks back and
forth in his cell.

tive. Another drawback to the use
of radium. However, he said, radiumj
could not be permanently introduced_
Into the body since they retain their
radioactive properties indefinitely
and may be poisonous.
"The great value of the artificially
radioactive materials will be that this
danger can be overcome," he said,
since they lose their radioactive prop-
erty when they have been left in the
human organism.
Thus, the research work in atomic
structure with the cyclotron, will be
carried on by the physics department,
but at the same time the research
workers will supply sufficient quan-
tities of the artificially radioactive
materials to permit research work in
their -effects in the fields of biology
and medicine.
Professor Firestone designed the
cyclotron from directions in an art-
icle written by the California scien-
tist in the Physical Review, and has
never seen the one in use. He was
forced to design a magnet for the
machine, since, as he said, "the Cal-

ifornia physicists found one on the
rubbish pile, a -feat which we were
not able to duplicate."
The theory of the cyclotron is that
ions of ordinary hydrogen or heavy
hydrogen falling through such fields
attain speeds sufficiently great
enough to permit them to disrupt the
nuclei of a number of the elements.
By a combination of magnetic and
electric fields the charged particles
are caused to revolve in expanding
spirals. Twice during each revolu-
tion they are subjected to electric
fields of from ten to twenty thousand
volts. If the particles subjected to
the fields revolve 400 times before
emerging they will acquire speeds
equivalent to falling through a direct
potential drop of four million volts
and will thus be able to accomplish,
the breaking up of the atom.

McCallum And
Wagg Receive
Named To County Welfare
Commission And Relief
George P. McCallum, Sr., local at-
torney, was appointed to the county}
welfare commission, and Charles F.
Wagg, '31, also of Ann Arbor, was
named relief administrator of Wash-
tenaw County, yesterday to fill the
two vacancies left after the resigna-
tion of Clarence H. Elliot, adminis-
trator since 1931, who withdrew last
week in order to become city man-
ager of Plymouth.
The appointment of Mr. McCallum,
who was graduated from the Uni-
versity Law School in 1898, was made
by Gov. Frank D. Fitzgerald on the
recommendation of the relief com-
mission, while Mr. Wagg was ap-
pointed by Everett DeRyke of Milan,
chairman of the county commission.
The position held by McCallum has
been open since October, when Harold
D. Smith, director of the Michigan
Municipal League, resigned, leaving
on the county commission only two
members, Lawrence Thomas of Sa-
line, dnd Mr. DeRyke.
Mr. McCallum is president of the
Detroit, Mackinac, and Marquette
Land Co., and was formerly collector
of customs at Sault Ste. Marie. He
has been with the land company
about 20 years, and was a member of
the state legislature in the 1899-1901
Mr. Wagg has been working for
the relief administration for some
time in Michigan, first as a member of
the county staff here; and then as
field supervisor for the state com-
mission in nine counties centered
about Grand Rapids. He had lived
in Ann Arbor for 12 years before
that time.

fered Monday afternoon. Her dress

Advance In Airway Equipment c
Portrayed In Illustrated Lecture

A large audience had many of their
inhibitions towards flying removed
last night by a graphic portrayal of
the progress of aviation in a lecture
given in the Natural Science Audi-
torium under the auspices of the
Aero division of the A.S.M.E.
The films, obtained from the Bu-
reau of Air Commerce, depicted the
advance of aviation in respect to air-
port and airway equipment, their saf-
ety devices, and other technical fac-
tors -all of whch tend to diminish
greatly the possibility of accidents
on Federal airways.
Burdell L. Springer of the aeronau-
tical department, under whose direc-
tion the lecture was presented, gave
an explanation of the various regula-
tions for increasing safety as set-up
by the department of commerce. This
description was given concurrently
with the film, "Safety on the Federal
A detailed and comprehensive re-
view was made of the multifarious
technical duties incurring many weeks
of preparation which lie behind the
organization and the creation of a
finished airway. The first duty en-
tailed, as explained by Mr. Springer,

is the preliminary plotting of a new
air route by survey, construction, and
radio experts.
This is effected by flying over the
general territory proposed to pick out
the best flying country from the air-
man's standpoint. A Department of
Commerce plane flies back and forth
along this route examining each pos-
sible location for emergency landing
fields and rotating light beacons. 3
Mr. Springer stated that the test
of a field surface consists of driv-
ing over it in an automobile at about
30 miles an hour. If this can be
done without discomfort to passen-
gers, the surface is considered smooth
enough for airplane landings and

Twins Are Born
Two Weeks Apart
POLKTON, N. C., Jan. 16. - (AP) -
Dr. J. M. Boyce reported today the
birth of two children two weeks apart,
one in 1935 and the other in 1936, to
Mrs. Clyde Sikes, farm resident of
Anson County.
On Dec. 29, Dr. Boyce said, he was
called to the Sikes home and delivered
a pound and a half boy who lived
only 55 hours. On Jan. 11, the second
child was born, a two pound girl.
Answering to the call of the debate
schedule, more than 50 students
turned out yesterday afternoon for
the varsity debating try-outs which
were held in the Alpha Nu and Adel-
phi Rooms in Angell Hall. Arthur E.
Secord of the speech department an-
nounced that 12 men will be selected
to represent the University in the 35
scheduled encounters. The final
elimination try-outs will be held
within one week.
