Winner Of Annual Award
To Be Announced May
14 Instead Of May 7
The date for the annual Henry Rus-
sel lecture for 1935-36 to be given by
Prof. John G. Winter, chairman of
the Latin department, has been
changed from May 7 to May 14, ac-
cording to Frank E. Robbins, as-
sistant to the president.
Also on May 14 the winner of the
Henry Russel award will be an-
nounced. Every year $250 is given
from the Henry Russel endowment
to an assistant professor or instructor
whose scholastic activities were dis-
tinctly meritorious or whose promise
seems to merit the appointment.
The award is conferred by the Re-
search Club of the University, of
which Dr. Heber D. Curtis is ,presi-
dent. The appointment of Professor
Winter to the lectureship this year
was also made by the Research club.
Professor Winter is the director of
the division of fine arts in the literary
college and of the Museum of Classical
Archaeology, and he is the eleventh
faculty man to receive the honor of
delivering the lectureship.
Since 1919 Professor Winter has
held a professorship at the University
and has been chairman of the Latin
department for several years. He was
a lecturer on the Thomas Spencer
Jerome Foundation of the American
Academy in Rome in 1929, and his in-
tellectual activities have brought him
international recognition as a scholar.
He is also a member of the Amer-
ican Philosophical Association, the
Archaeological Institute of America,
the American Association for the Ad-
vancement of Science, and the Mich-
igan Academy of Science, arts, and

WASHINGTON, May 7. - A grant
of $116,000 made by the General Ed-
ucation Board for the completion of
the current study of secondary school
standards and accrediting proced-
ures, was announced yesterday by
Prof. George E. Carrothers of the
School of Education.
This study is being carried on by
the Committee for the Cooperative
Study of Secondary School Stand-
ards, which is at present convening
in Washington. It is composed of 21
members and represents the six re-
gional associations of college and sec-
ondary schools - the New England
association, the Middle States associ-
ation, the North Central association,
the Southern association, the North-
west association and the Western as-
Professor Carrothers is chairman
of the general committee, and Prof.
E. D. Grizzell of the University of
Pennsylvania is chairman of the ex-
ecutive committee. These two men.
collaborating with Prof. Joseph
Roemer of Peabody College for Teach-
ers, constitute the administrative
committee having direct responsi-
bility for the study. Carl A. Jessen,
Specialist in Secondary Education of
the United States Bureau of Educa-
tion, is secretary of the committees.
A grant of $25,000 a year ago by
the same foundation, supplemented
by contributions in excess of $12,500
from the cooperating regional as-
sociations, has financed the earlier
phases of the study. These have been

Spesking to the alumni of their
responsibility to their alma mater,
.James Burrill Angell said some years
ago, "In a just sense and a large de-
gree the fortunes of the University
are committed to your hands."
Cognizant of the importance of this
relationship, William Dixon, '36,
president of the Men's Council, de-
vised a plan a month ago which
would aid students in becoming ac-
quainted with the functions of the
Alumni Association. It is this organi-
zation, founded in 1845, which holds
together the alumni of the University..
Its ramifications reach into virtually
every state in the form of University
of Michigan Clubs and its influence
is felt throughout the world both by
imilar clubs and by the printed ma-
terial it sends out, especially the,

Corps, over the open area between
Packard and Washtenaw streets just
south of the cut-off at the eastern
end of town.
Beginning at 2 p.m., the squadron
will participate in a unique demon-
stration of three types of communica-
tion between the ground and aircraft
The most striking of the maneu-
vers will involve airplanes actually

a line stretching between them, the

A plane swoops down over the ap-

Another demonstration utilizes
panels -large strips and figures of
loth laid out in various configura-
tions on the ground-in the com-
nunication of specific messages to

r'Iawa/ey Approves Government
Operation Of Electric Systems
Ability 14. A7bSorb MHtge
Costs Cied As Benefits
By WILLIAM E. SHACKLETON
Presenting a power engineer's
views on the question of governmental
ownership and operation of electric
generating systems, Prof. R. S. Haw-
ley of the mechanical engineering de-
partment yesterday gave a qualified
approval to federal development of
The chief advantage found by Pro-
fessor Hawley in having the govern-
ment build power plants lay in the
conservation of natural resources
which might be affected. Such proj-
ects as harnessing the lower portions
of the Mississippi would, in his opin-
ion, relieve to a considerable extent
the burden upon the coal, gas, and
oil reserves of the nation and also
prevent or check the carrying down
to the sea of millions of tons of
Costs of building such huge hydro-
lectric plans would obviously be
very great, he pointed out, so that
no agency except the federal govern-
ment could hope to meet them. In
practically no instances could he
foresee that any of these construc-
tion costs would be repaid from sales
of power with rates near present
levels; actually, he declared, the in-
stallation of federal power plants
would almost invariably be paid for
from the national tax bill.
As basis for his belief that federal
operators of large hydro-electric
plants would never be able to pay
original capital costs, the efficiency
to be expected was discussed by Pro-
fessor Hawley. In the first place, he
believes, government will not run an
enterprise any more cheaply than
private companies do.
In the second place, he continued,
experience has demonstrated that in
most cases the lowest priced power is
secured with steam plants located
near the center of consumption rather
tfhan with hydro-electric stations
which usually have to set up long
transmission lines to distribute their
output. Thus federal hydro-electric
projects which would be able to sell
power in a competitive market would
probably just about meet operating
However, Professor Hawley indi-
cated, a large portion of these in-
itial expenses could be charged to
flood control or in ome cases, irri-
One important, condition for fed-
eral building of hydro-electric plants
was made by Professor Hawley. That
was to have the planning and con-
siruction period extend over several
decades. By- this prolonged warning
ample opportunity would be allowed
private operators to write off through
the natural process of depreciation re-
serves their investment in plant and
equipment. Since most generating"
machinery wears out in 12 or 15 years,1
all that present power companies need
to do would be not to buy new equip-£
ment. This qualification would re-
move two of the principal bugbears
of businessmen faced by the govern-t
ment ownership issue, loss of capital1
investment and direct competition.
Going on to other aspects of gov-
ernment's part in the public utility
business, Professor Hawley advanced
"service" requirements as an advan-
tage of a municipal power system
over a private company. The latter,
he slid, under its franchise terms,
must always have available a sec-
ondary source of power for emergency
use. This usually means a high initial
cost of duplicating either generating
or transmission equipment. On the
other hand, municipal plants are
under no such obligation and expense;
if their service is temporarily dis-
rupted, there is not much that con-
sumers can do in protest.
Dice Reads Paper
Dr. Lee R. Dice, curator of mam-
mals in the Museum of Zoology, Dr.
W. H. Burt, assistant curator of mam-
mals, and Carolyn' Shaldon of the
martnology division will leave early
next week for Philadelphia where
they will attend the 18th annual
meeting of the American Society of
Mammalogists, May 12 to 16.
Dr. Dice will deliver two papers at
the meeting entitled "Fertility Re la-
tions in the Paromyscus leucopus
Groups of Mice," and "Waltzing and
Epilepsy in Deer Mice." Dr. Burt will
talk on "Studies on Populations and
Movements of Small Mammals."

yesterday, the new booklet edited by
