do not go astray, the freshmen will
form' for their march at the south
goalposts, by the flagpole, wearing
their identifying pots. (Moe an-
nounced that nearly 150 remained
on hand.)
During the parade the yearlings
met with defeat only at the Union and
League, where they planned to invade
the dance floor, and at the Michigan
Theater. Two burly ushers routed
them at the Union, ushers and locked
doors at the Michigan, while the in-
domitable Ethel McCormick blocked
their path at the Michigan League.
At the Sugar Bowl, however, the
boys were given refreshments "on the
house," and to express their gratitude,
passed the hat to collect the sales tax
for the bill. In the Hut basement Bob
Carson's band swung into "Hail, Hail
the Gang's All Here," and then "The
Victors" as they marched through
clearing the floor of dancers.
At Chubbs' the marchers sprinted
through the revolving door at top
speed, and all made the dangerous
passage with no major injuries. Else-
where along the line of march the
group met with no resistance, but
sopkeeperswatched them file
through the stores and restaurants
with watchfulsand somewhat appre-
hensive glances. The total damage
was a broken glass at the Sugar
Bowl, although Moe's plate-glass
window threatened to give way as
they hammered on it for admittance.
The general tempo of the night's
business was a highly spirited and vig-
orous running fire chant of insults
hurled at both the Cass of '38 and
Michigan State, interspersed with oc-
cassional multi-keyed renditions of
"The Victors" and "Varsity," and
yells for "'39."
The class spirit shown, according
to observers' comments, was higher
than any seen on the campus in re-
cent years. in spite of the hard-
fought skirmishes between '36 and '37
and '38 in the past two years, and
several predicted that Fall Games
would result in an annihilation of
the sophomore class unless the sec-
ond -year men took more interest in
Sproceedings than they apparently
were taking in the freshmen's taunts
last night.

Prof. Armand J. Eardley of the ge-
ology department returned recently;
after spending five months doing ge-
ological research work in Alaska. He
has resumed his duties as a member
of the geology department.
Last spring he was invited by the
University of Pennsylvania to accom-
pany an archeological expedition to
Alaska. K. A. Gorton, a graduate stu-
dent in the geology department, went
along with Professor Eardley as an
The object of the expedition was
to try to trace the early migration
route that the ancestors of the Amer-
ican Indian might have taken on their
trek from Siberia across what is now
the Bering Straits and to decipher
the late geological history of the re-
gion. The lower part of the great
Yukon valley was 'the laboratory of
the expedition.
For transportation the scientists
used two small flat-bottomed boats
which they built themselves from
plans drawn up by Louis A. Baier of
the department of naval architecture.
The boats were built at Nenana, a
small railroad terminal on one of the
large tributaries of the Yukon. The
small craft, powered by two twelve
horsepower outboard motors, were
piloted by Professor Eardley and Gor-
ton for more than 1,800 miles down
the Yukon and up many of its tribu-
taries and sloughs. Much ethnolog-
ical data was gathered, but the search
for Pleistocene man was rewarded
with no positive evidence. The geo-
logical data obtained is being worked
upon by Professor Eardley for a fu-
ture scientific paper.
The total population of the lower
Yukon Valley numbers about 1,100
people, ten per cent of whom are
white and the remainder full-blooded
and half-breed Indians, the professor
said. The great majority of the white
men are "squaw men"-married to
Indian women and raising large fam-
Irwin To Conduct
Insurance Course
In the absence of Professor Ernest
M. Fisher of the School of Business
Administration, Mr. Hampton Irwin,
'17, of Detroit is conducting the course
in insurance. Mr. Irwin has been
engaged in the insurance business
since his graduation from the Univer-
sity in 1917 and is employed by the
Massachusetts Mutual Insurance
He will hold his new post until
the end of the current semester, ac-
cording to Dean Clare E. Griffin.
Professor Fisher is in Washington
where he is in charge of the research
division of the Federal Housing Ad-
ministration. His work deals with
current real estate values in their
relations to the Housing Adminis-
tration's program.
With Professor Fisher in the capital
is Mr. Frederick M. Babcock who
conducted research here recently, and
contributed to the publication, "Mich-
igan Business Studies," an article
on real estate valuation.

ilies of half-breeds. According to
Professor Eardley, the Indians do not
seem to have any written language
and are at a rather primitive level
of civilization. No records of any
sort are kept. Although he thinks
the white men are intelligent, the
main influence they have had on
the Indians is to teach them how to
become "boozers " While he was up
there, a "squaw man's" wife drank
herself to death with wood alcohol.
"Despite the fact that two Jesuit
missions at Holy Cross and Nulatto
and several Episcopalian clinics aie
active in that area, few of the na-
tives have learned the sanctity of
marriage and according to our stand-
ards live rather promiscuous lives,"
he stated. Families of a dozen chil-
dren or more are common and the
practice of giving away children to
relatives and friends is not an un-
usual one.
Hordes of mosquitoes make life un-
bearable for the researcher. As Pro-
fessor Eardley said, "the only way to
have more mosquitoes there would be
to have smaller ones." During the
daytime people must wear fine mos-
quito netting over their heads and
faces, securely tied under their chins
and at the same time keeping their
hands well covered with leather
gloves. At night, after carefully
fumigating their tents with buhac
powder they get into cots with mos-
quito netting tucked all around them.
"The mosquito annoyance is off-
set by the pleasure derived from ob-
serving the natural beauty of the
country. During most of June and
July the beautiful sunsets merge into
delicate pink dawns. The tempera-
ture is that of Northern Michigan in
the summer - comfortably cool," Pro-
fessor Eardley said.
Although in the region at the time
of the Rogers-Post tragedy, he was
not near enough to obtain first-hand
information of the disaster. Profes-
sor Eardley and Gorton flew 600 miles
back to Nenana, their starting point
in Alaska.

Cost Of Integraph
Stops Students' Use
An interesting mechanical instru-
ment possessed by the mathematics
department, is the integraph, a ma-
chine which will mechanically cal-
culate the arc of any figure, of any
shape or size.
The manipulator of this instrument
merely traces the figure with a stylus
which is attached to a long arm. The
arm is connected to the body of the
machine, which does the rest of the
work. The principles of calculus form
the basis upon which this instrument
is based. The mechanism is often
used in making and tracing maps and
securing data, and eliminates difficult
and tedious work in calculating areas.
Its cost, however, running from ap-
proximately $25 for the very simple
instruments to hundreds of dollars for
the more complicated, accurate ones,
is prohibitive for mathematics stu-

University Broa dcasting Station
Now Has Comme rcial Equipment

"The new sound recording equip-
ment which will be installed next
week in the broadcasting station will
definitely be of the type that is used
by commercial organizations," de-
clared Turrell Uleman, technichian
and assistant director of the Uni-
versity of Michigan Broadcasting
Service yesterday.
The actual recording of the records
is one of the most interesting opera-
tions of the services that Mr. Uleman,
as technichian, must perform. The
song ,story, or speech that is givenis
picked up with a velocity type of mic-
rophone, and the output of which is
amplified until it obtains a power of
12 watts.
"These programs must be practiced
so well that when the signal is given
there should not be any miscues or
mistakes," continued Mr. Turrell. "It
usually requires about 15 minutes of
preparation for each three minutes of
The amplified sound is then fed to
a phonograph part called a "cutting
head," where the actual transforma-
tion from a plain disc into a record
is done. This "cutting head" not only
cuts a groove in the disc but also re-
ceives the current from the amplifier
and transforms it to the disc, he said.
The disc is spun off, and its rims cut
90 to the inch by a special steel or
sapphire needle, in an horizontal fa-

shion. The advantages of this is that
they can thus be used by any type of
phonograph, he pointed out.
"Now the record is finished and
ready to be played back. No baking,
processing, or special treatment need
be given the disc," asserted Mr. Ule-
man. "Being an acetate disc with
an alumnium base ,it is capable of
being played 75 times without show-
ing any appreciable wear."
The discs are in three sizes. Eight
inches, ten inch, and twelve inch
discs will be used -for the ordinary
purposes of the radio department.
These discs, transcribed at the rate
of 78 revolutions a minute, are played
back in two and a half minutes, three
and a half minutes and five minutes
