Detroit Bank Robbers
Believed Bottled Up
LANSING, May 1. -0(/P)-
State police officers intensified
their blockade of Michigan high-
ways tonight, confident they have
bottled in Detroit the five bandits
who looted a. Detroit bank of
$50,000 today.
Lieut. Caesar Scavarda pro-
fessed little credence in a va-
riety of tips that the men had
been seen on highways in various
sections of the State. "It seems
logical they are in Detroit and
unable to get out," Scavarda as-
serted. "We'll knock them off
if they come onto the highways,
and they know it."
Not fewer than 300 heavily
armed state police and county
officers patroled highways in
-radio-equipped cruisers, and
hundreds of other municipal of-
ficers maintained vigilant watch
throughout the State.
See Townsend Quiz
As Unifying Force
- Supporters of the Townsend
old age pension plan here ex-
pressed the belief today that re-
cent congressional investigation
of the movement will bring its
membership closer together.
"I believe the congressional
hearing has brought the Town-
scudites closer together than
ever," said Floyd R. Moody, area
manager. "Testimony by the
Rev. David B. Moore of Traverse
City, and Mrs. Juanita H. Jack-
son of Jackson, that the organi-
zation is a racket is being taken
lightly as they are both dis-
gruntled because of their failure
to obtain responsible positions
in the movement. We had heard
all about them before."
Vandenberg Definitely
After Nomination
LANSING, May 1.- (T) -
Howard C. Lawrence, chairman
of the Republican State Central
Committee, said tonight that
Sen. Arthur H. Vandenberg
(Rep., Mich.) had authorized the
presentation of his name as a
candidate for the Presidential
nomination at the Republican
National Convention.
The authorization, Lawrence
said, was contained in a letter to
Gov. Frank D. Fitzgerald, asking
him to make the nominating
That request represented the
first definite indication that the
Michigan Senator is more than
passively interested in his
chances for the nomination.
"The Michigan delegation may
have a great influence on the con-
vention," Senator Vandenberg
wrote to Governor Fitzgerald.
The presentation of Senator
Vandenberg's name to the na-
tional convention will be in con-
formance with a resolution
adopted by the Michigan Repub-
lican Convention. That conven-
tion had been prepared to bind
its delegation to support Van-
denberg as long as there was a
possibility of his nomination.

He made a "full and complete

To Hold Luncheon
The conference of business schools
will open with speeches on "What
Business Expects of the Business
School Graduate" by Forrest W. Bos-
well, president of the Boswell-May-
tag Company of Flint, and will con-
tinue with a luncheon and afternoon
business meeting.
Pi Lambda Theta and Phi Delta
Kappa, honorary educational socie-
ties, will hold a luncheon at the Union
at which Prof. Thomas W. Knott,
editor of the Middle English Dic-
tionary, will speak on "Business from
the College Professor's Angle."
Speaking at the luncheon of the
Michigan Association of Speech
Teachers yesterday at the Union,
Prof. Gladys L. Borchers of the Uni-
versity of Wisconsin emphasized the
immediate necessity of formulating
an efficient course of study for ele-
mentary and high school speech stu-
dents. Professor Borchers is chair-
man of the National Coordinating
Committee which is working on such
a plan at present.I
Tells Of Speech Study
The development of speech study
has reached such proportions in Wis-
consin high schools, Prof. Borchers
said, that all colleges and even the
University have been forced to give
students entrance credits in that
subject. She finds, however, that
speech is still being taught largely
as a training for public performance
and not for actual conversation. The
student must be made to realize that
acting in a play is no longer as im-
portant as being able to get up on
one's feet and to give a talk in the
proper manner.
Speaking before the conference of
geography, E. M. Clark of Ferris In-
stitute pointed out that Italy's at-
tempt to conquer African colonies
started as early as 1878, just shortly
after the Italian unification and that
Mussolini, under the excuse of "over-
population," which he himself is en-
couraging, is continuing this old pol-
icy by attempting to "reconstruct the
old Roman Empire at the cost of
other countries." In conclusion, Mr.
Clark said he doubted the ability of
Italy to conquer the empire of Haile
Selassie; for, in spite of Mussolini's
concentrated drive, Italy is trying in
the face of bankruptcy to overwhelm
a country which has never in its long
history been successfully invaded.
Surveys Ethiopia

Prof. Henry M. Kendall of the geog-
raphy department gave a brief survey
of the geographical conditions in
Ethiopia, emphasizing the vast dif-.
ferences within the country in cl-
mate, altitude, rainfall and resources.
Ethiopia exports very little of its prod-
ucts, Dr. Kendall said, and sends
50 per cent of its exports to Japan;
Italy gets one-half of one per cent.
Ethiopia has only five cities with
population of more than 1,000, only
a few roads, all near Addis Ababa,
and only one railroad, which is
French-owned. Ethiopia's exports,
mainly coffee, hides and resin, are
sent by way of the Sobat River
through an agreement with Great
Britain. In conclusion, Dr. Kendall
agreed with Mr. Clark in that the
geography of Ethiopia makes an in-
vasion impractical and almost im-
Describes Apparatus
The apparatus now being con-
structed by University physicists for
use in the field of nuclear research
was described by Prof. Floyd A. Fire-
stone of the physics department in his
speech to the science division.

with its 1,000,000 volt potential, Pro-
fessor Firestone called it the "brute
force" method of bombarding the

Ethiopians Flee Capital As Italians Near

Hundreds of natives and government officials evacuated Addis Ababa
as advancing Italian armies were reported within artillery range of the
ancient Ethiopian capital. Pictured here is the Ras Makonnen bridge,

transform the city into a Western capital.

to those taken in the actual diggings
for the foundation.
The tests were not everywhere the
same, indicating a considerably larg-
er settlement in one case than in the
other although the final capacity
was entirely adequate in both cases.
This difference in settlement was be-
cause of the fact that the sand and
pebbles were not uniformly "packed"
or consolidated. Professor Housel
and his associates wondered if it were
not possible to have the same varia-
tions where the structure was to
Thus many other tests were nec-
essary, but it turned out that these
proved satisfactory and proved that
the deposits below the structure were
sufficiently uniform and had suf-
ficie nt bearI1ng capacity to be suitable
for its foundation.
This was the first time, Professor
Housel said, that any soil bearing
tests had ever been applied to a Uni-
versity building.
The field of engineering having to
do with soil tests is relatively un-
developed, and for a time engineers
reached the conclusion that measure-
ment of the soil resistance could not
be made, according to Professor
However, in 1927 Prof. Lewis Grat
and several other men in the civil
engineering department began work
on the problem of foi'mulating bear-
ing tests which would be accurate.
power for this apparatus; "Electrons
are accelerated through a huge vac-
uum tube by means of six sets of
electrical plates within the tube."
When the electrons have reached a
high speed they are directed at ob-
jects under experimentation.
The cyclotron, Professor Firestone'
continued, is an ingenious method of
developing 12 million volts potential
from approximately 300,000 volts.
This is done by means of resonance;
that is, by continually applying this
potential to deuterons at equal in-
tervals so that the projectile soon
reaches a very large velocity.
Firestone Talks
Displaying various pants of the
cyclotron, which is now in the pro-
cess of construction by University
physicists, Professor Firestone stated
the principle upon which the cyclo-
tron operates. Deuterons are thrown
violently in a circular path somewhat
similar to the shape of a snail shell.
The forces upon the deutrons which
cause them to accelerate so quickly
and to take such a path are the large
potentials applied to them at inter-
vals, and the action of a huge magnet
between the poles of which the deu-
trons rotate.
The secondary schools are not hav-
ing as much influence on. the social
attitudes of their pupils as they
should have, Dr. Clifford Woody, di-
rector of the University Bureau of
Educational Reference and Research,
told the administrative teachers' con-

Finally from gathered data they de-
veloped a method of estimating the
bearing capacity. The work on the
problem carried on by Professor
Housel has received recognition
throughout the world although the
entire matter of estimating soil re-
sistances is still the subject of much
The first real application of their
results came in Detroit where a large
number of tests have been run. It
has been found that in most of these
cases the tests were very successful,
and when the building of the Tower
was contemplated it was decided by
the University authorities to conduct
the tests on the soil near Hill Audi-
In the region of the campus, Pro-
fessour Iousel said ,thcere is a very sat-
ilsfactoi'y soil for foundations. It is
an "out-wash of sand and gravel and
has proved to be one of the best, but
because of the unusual character of
the Burton Tower it was decided that
such tests should be made.
Some of the consequences that
might have cone as a result of an
improper soil on which to base the
foundation were serious. The Tower,
had its foundation not been based
upon soil with the proper bearing
capacity, later might have taken on
a "lean" and many unsightly cracks
might have resulted from the uneven
settling of the structure.
It was found that the soil did have
an ultimate resistance of between
18 and 20 tons per square foot, a
capacity far more than would ever be
needed for the Tower. Moreover,
because of the uniformity of the con-
.solidation or compactness of the soil
particles below the site there will be
no danger of uneven settlement, Pro-
fessor Hiousel said.
