Pitcairn Island, home of his forefathers for five generations, soon will welcome Charles Christian, 35, and
his dog. His great-great-grandfather was Fletcher Christian of Bounty fame. The scene at the right shows
the landing place on Bounty Bay with the boathouses where the islanders keep their long boats and fishing
dugouts. Charles' mother plans to take ashore a pianl on this rock-bound little beach. The village where
they live is a quarter of a mile away atop the cliff. (Island picture from "Heritage of the Bounty" by Dr.
Henry L. Shapiro, published by Simon and Schuster).

Prominent Detroiters
Consider 'Engineers
Relation To Labor'


A platform debate by three promi-
nent Detroiters on the subject, "The
relation of engineers to labor," will
be held Tuesday night, in the Union,
it was announced yesterday by Prof.
Robert D. Brackett of the engineering
English department, sponsor of Sigma
Rho Tau.
The debate, which will be open to
the public, has been called, for the
purpose of discussing the feasibility
of an organized labor union for grad-
uate engineers and the exclusive hir-
ing by engineers of organized skilled
These problems wil be viewed in
three aspects: Frank Martel, organ-
ized labor leader, will present the
advantages of an organized system
of labor; Lloyd Blackmore, patent
attorney in the legal department of
the General Motors Corporation,
will outline the policies adopted by
his firm in dealing with scientific and
skilled labor; and a personnel man-
ager from Detroit, as yet unnamed,
will speak on the attitude of "big
business" toward organized labor in
Prominent features of the discus-
sion will be the "open shop," "closed
shop," and "black-list"systems of em-
ployment. A wide divergence of opin-
ion among the speakers regarding
these systems promises much lively
altercation," according to Professor

Lieut. R. H. Hambert, U.S.N., of Low-

bride in every port. Arriving here
aboard the U.S.S. Pheps, he explained
that Mrs. Hambert, to whom he was
married in Boston, March 28, has
followed the ship by automobile
along the coast to greet him whenever
the boat docks.

SAN FRANCISCO, April 26. - (/P)
- Five-year-old Charles J. B. Chris-
tian, great-great-grandson of Fletch-
er Christian who led the mutiny on
the Bounty, will sail in May for the
south Pacific to clain his inheritance
on lonely Pitcairn island.
With Charles will go his mother,
Mrs. Edna Christian, his red, rubber-
tired wagon, his brown and white
pup, his father's ashes, several pounds
of nails and hinges, a piano, perhaps
a set of bedsprings and a few sacks
of cement-and a supply of insulin.
"Charles is a diabetic," Mrs. Chris-
tian explains. "and the doctors say
that if we let him run wild on the
island it may be the salvation of his
health. My father will send more in-
sulin by each boat. Aside from that,
his treatment is up to nature."
A Farm And Two Lots
Immediate occasion for their de-
parture is settlement of Charles' fa-
ther's estate which leaves them a
farm and two village lots on Pitcairn
island where Charles' ancestor settled
with his 26 mutineer mates in 1789
after casting their notorious Captain
Bligh adrift in a small boat.
"We are carrying out the plans my
husband made before his death last
year," Mrs. Christian says. "My hus-
band -he was named Fletcher, after
the mutineer -lived on the island
until he was 17. He worked here as
a longshoreman but always wanted to
go back to Pitcairn. His ashes are
going with us.
"We understand there is enough
property to keep us the rest of our
lives," adds Mrs. Christian, daugh-
ter of an eastern evanglist. "We've
been on relief here, and Charles'
health has not been good; so we are
willing to try the change. We are
going determined to like it."
Must Take Own Metal
Mrs. Christian has corresponded
with two of Charles' relativeson Pit-
cairn, Mrs. Mabel Warren, Fletcher's
sister, and Sidney Christian, a bro-
"They tell me they will build a
house for me," she says, "but that I
must bring my own metal, such as
nails and hinges, and the window
glass. If I want a cistern, I must
|bring cement. And bedsprings if Ij

want them. The island supplies every
other necessity."
On Pitcairn Mrs. Christian and
Charles will have 198 neighbors, near-
ly all blood relatives ,ruied by a Brit-
ish-appointed magistrate. All live
in one community, she says, and go
out daily to farm and fish.
Chance To Hunt And Fish
Charles will have some opportuni-
ty to attend school, but most of his
time will be spent fishing, working
the ancestral farm and hunting
chickens and goats that are so pro-
fuse on the island there is no need
to domesticate them.
Of the mutiny that led to founding
of the colony on Pitcairn she says:
"But after all, that event was a
long time ago. The people are kind-
ly and well behaved now. Why, they
have no liquor whatever on the
island and only three people use to-

On Wednesday
The University Concert Band will
present its first concert of the spring
season at 8:15 p.m. Wednesday, April
29, in Hill Auditorium under the batonC
of William D. Revelli, directing his
first concert since he assumed the
leadership of the band last fall.
A varied program of both sym-
phonic and novelty 'umbers \has
been arranged, featuring many com-
positions newly introduced to band
"Headlines" by Carleton Colby, a
rhapsody of modern newspaper life
will be offered which, according to
Director Revelli is "one of the best
of the recent compositions written
expressly for concert band."
A cornet trio composed of William
M. Jones, Ernest A. Jones, and Owen
Reed will play Walter M. Smith's "Bo-
lero," an intricate technical study for
the cornet.
The Concert Band of 85 members
will also play the finale of the B
Flat Symphony for band by Paul
Fauchet. Other numbers will be the
"Ariane Overture" by Louis Boyer,
the "London Suite" by Eric Coates,
and "Cabins" by James Gillette, an
American tone poem depicting life
in the South.

Table Of Prime
Numbers Being
Developed Here
Major Maihematical Work
Being Directed By Dr.
J. D. Elder
Of major importance to the math-
ematical world is the set of tables
that will result from the work of
Dr. J. O. Elder of the mathematics
The aim of Dr. Elder and the group
of students working under him is to
make a more accurate set of prime
numbers for better tables, to be used
in factoring very large numbers.
The most complete set of primes to
date, that of Dr. D. H. Lehmer of
the University of California, goes as
far as ten million numbers, but be-
cause of mechanical difficulties in
finding the primes, and the natural
encroachment of errors into any such
work, it was the belief of Dr. Elder
that errors did exist in the tables
and in the stencils used in the re-
search work.
Such, even in the early stages of
experiment with the stencils he has
made, he has found to be the case.
A method of finding a prime num-
ber, that is, one that has no rational
factors, beyond a certain limit, is
considered one of the most difficult
problems in the theory of numbers
and has engaged the attention of
some of the ablest mathematicians
of modern times.
For the first tables of primes there
was practically no way but the good
old caveman method of brute force
in factoring large numbers. This
method was practicable for numbers
like 55, or 48, but when faced with
a number like 97332819111, even the
best mathematician might take as
much as 25 hours to find a factor.
That number, being a prime, and
having no factors, would even be a
more difficult proposition. With a
convenient set of tables this could
have been ascertained quickly.
dents are invited and no admission
will be charged. Tuesday night prior
to its concert here, the band will
play at Hartland, Mich.
