The 141-feat level of a gold mine at Moose River, N.S., where Dr. D. E. Robertson, Charles A. Scadding and
Herman B. Magill, all of Toronto, were imprisoned for more than 10 days is shown here. Magill died near this
spot before rescuers were able to reach the entombed men. The lantern the trio carried with them is shown in
the foreground. At the right is a mine car in which they were about to be hauled to the surface when,
the cave-in occurred.

Schoolmasters Club: Members of
the Faculty students and others who
are planning zo attend the John
Dewey Dinner at the Union Friday
evening, May 1, are urged to get their
tickets in Room 4, University Hall
not later than Wednesday noon. This
is strictly necessary in order to assure
accommodations for the large num-
ber who are attending. Students may
also secure passes to the lectures and
conferences at Room 4, U.H., and at
the School of Education.
Edith L. Hoyle, President School-
To the Members of the Faculty:
Man-made weather is being pro-
duced in the engineering laboratories
of the University: A machine, which
produces accelerated weather condi-
tions on paints and all types of bitu-
minous materials - such as asphalt
cement and oils --is in constant use
by the State Highway Department.
The weather conditions developed
by the machine vary from dry heat
at 140 degrees F. to cold at 40 degrees
below zero. Sunshine is produced by
an ultra-violet ray lamp and rain by
a spray, the wet asphalt being dried
by an electric fan.
It has long been known to highway
eingineers that bituminous materials
undergo a change in their chemical
setup when the temperature to which
they are subjected changes to any
marked degree, and that only the
more ductile materials can be used
for highway surfaces.
Most of the materials that are used
on city streets are of the bituminous
variety, and their volatility accounts
for the cracking of the streets. The
machine is used in an attempt to
find which specific materials are apt
to crack and, combined with other
tests, will eventually result in the use
of a better quality material for the
construction of highways. As yet,
ing of the Schoolmaster's Club, April
30, May 1 and 2. This is the fiftieth
anniversary meeting of the School-
master's Club, which has been sup-
ported by the University and the
members of its faculties throughout
its existence. Especial attention is
called to the important conferences
on the articulation of high school
studies with freshman courses in the
University which are to be held on
Saturday morning, May 2, in Hutch-
All Sophomore Engineers are re-
quested to pay their class dues by the
end of this week to any of the follow-
ing: Carl Clements, Jack Staples,
Walter Jensen, Clifton Elliott, Pete
Fones, Edward Foote.
Notice To Seniors, Graduate Stu-
dents: Diploma fees are payable now.
Early settlement is necessary for the
preparation of diplomas. In no case
will the University confer a degree at
commencement upon any student
who fails to pay fee before 4 p.m.

mend any paper, the fee will be re-
funded on surrender of receipt for

however, the machine is but a prom-
ising research tool.
In operation the bituminous
samples are placed as sheets of uni-
form thickness on a disc which ro-
tates through a complete cycle of
rain and sunshine conditions. Cold
conditions can be reproduced only in
the cold room where the exceedingly
chilly atmosphere makes it necessary
for the researchers to wear flying
The machine can be used to ascer-
tain the effects of temperature and
weather change on any material
which undergoes severe weather dif-
ferences, and is considered an excel-
lent piece of weather research ap-

Please do not delay until the last
day, but attend to this matter at
once. We must letter, sign, and seal
approximately 2,000 diplomas and
certificates, and we shall be greatly
helped in this work by early payment
of the fee and the resulting longer
period for preparation.

Cork Will Discuss Work
Done With Aid Of New
Thirteen members of the physicis
staff will attend the 205th regular
meeting of the American Physical
Society which will be held on Thurs-
day and Friday, April 30 and May 1, in
Washington, it was learned yesterday.
Six papers will be given before the
Society by University physicists,
among which will be a speech de-
livered by Prof. James Cork on ex-
periments which he has conducted in
conjunction with Professor Lawrence
of the University of California. In
these experiments small amounts of
platinum were transmuted into gold
by bombardment with deuterons, shot
out from a cyclotron similar to the
one being constructed at the Uni-
Duffendack To Speak
"A Source for Quantitative Spec-
trographic Analysis of Solutions" is
the topic of a paper to be presented
by Prof. O. S. Duffendack. Professor
Duffendack and Dr. Kenethn B.
Thomson have devised a means of
determining the qunatities of sub-
stances in certain biological fluids by
measuring the effects of these dis-
solved materials upon an uncon-
densed spark between two electrodes,
which are quartz jets between which
the solution flows.
Believed to be the first definite ex-
planation of the color of a solid, a
theory will be presented by Dr. C. B.
Ellis in which he traces the electronic
transition in the atoms which de-
termine what colors will be absorbed
and which not by the rare earth
A description of experiments car-
ried on by Donald Bayley, Grad.,
Baldwin Curtis, instructor, and Erwin.
Gaertnner, Grad., under the super-
vision of Prof. Samuel Goudsmit will
be one of the papers submitted by
University physicists. The influence
of different elements upon the dis-
tribution of diffusing slow neutrons
disseminated from a radon beryllium
source was measured by these ex-
perimenters. It was found that cer-
tain elements have the effect of low-
ering the density of the neutrons.
Barium To Be Discussed
Prof. R. A. Sawyer will speak on
"Hyperfine Structure and Nuclear
Moment of Barium," which he has
prepared in conjunction with Mr.
Members of the faculty who will
attend this meeting are: Prof. H. M.
Randall, who is vice-president of the
Society, Professor Duffendack, Pro-
fessor Sawyer, Professor Cork, Prof.
Ernest Barker, Prof. Charles Meyer,
Mr. Crane, Mr. Ellis, Mr. Bayley, Mr.

Schedule Is Announced
The University R.O.T.C. will again
hold the traditional and colorful pro-
grams which it has given annually in
the past during the months of May
and June, the adjutant, Capt. R. R.
Coursey, announced yesterday.
There will be five highlights. A
parade will be given from 5 to 6 p.m.
Thursday, May 7. Two other parades
will be given from 5 to 6 p.m. on May
15 and May 21 at Palmer Field and
at South Ferry Field respectively. A
street parade will be presented lz to
11 a.m., Saturday, May 30. The final
event will be a review and award of
decorations from 5 to 6 p.m., June 4
at Palmer Field.
In case of rain, all but the last event
will be given at Yost Field House.

Is Killed In Break
SAN FRANCISCO, April 27.- (P) -
Joe Bowers, first convict to attempt
escape from forbidding Alcatraz
Island Federal prison, was killed to-
day by a 60-foot plunge over a cliff
as guards fired at him.
An autopsy disclosed the 40-year-
old mail 'obber's death was caused by
a bullet which entered his right
shoulder and lodged in his lung. An-
other bullet struck his thigh. None of
his bones was broken by the fall on
the rocky shelf of the grim prison in
San Francisco Bay.
