&adoglio Moves
To End Banditry
ADDIS ABABA, May 13 - (:P)
-(By Military plane to Asmara)
Marshal Pietro Badoglio, Viceroy
of Ethiopia, tonight ordered col-
umns of Italian soldiers to pene-
trate every 4,ection of Ethiopia
next week to put down the last
signs of opposition and banditry.
His instructions followed a
huge military review yesterday
in the capital attended by min-
isters and staffs of the French
and German legations.
In a place of honor at the re-
view were 170 black shirt college
men brought here by railroad
,from, Diredawa to represent the
southern Italian forces.

Electrons Are Set Free By
Light Regulate Switch;
RiIns Mechanical Object
"The electric eye," the mechanism
which opens and closes doors auto-
matically, which is the basis of sort-
ing machines and burglar devices,
and which has made possible tele-
vision, the telephoto, and the mod-
ern talking pictures, was explained
yesterday by Prof. Daniel L. Rich of
the physics department.
Known among scientists as the
photo-electric cell, this meThanism
works on relatively simple principles,
Professor Rich said.
The modern conception of cur-
rent electricity, Professor Rich first
explained, is that it is a flow of elec-
trons along a wire, similar to the
flow of water in a pipe. The elec-
trons are minute particles with a
negative charge, and constitute an
essential pat of the atom, which is
the building stone of all matter.
Made Of Glass Tube
The cell itself, Professor Rich con-
tinued, is made up of a glass tube,
similar in shape to the ordinary elec-
tric light bulb. A coating of the
hydride of sodium or potassium,
which is very sensitive to light in
that when light shines upon it elec-
trons are released from [,he atoms
of which it is composed, is placed
upon the inside of the tube.
Inside the bulb and connected to
its external base is a wire loop near
the center which has the function
of collecting electrons. The bulb
itself is filled with argon gas which
because of the structure of its at-
oms, prevents chemical action with-
in the bulb and therefore avoids ex-,
cessive deterioration of the consti-
tuents of the "electric eye."
Connections involving the photo-
electric cell are somewhat compli-
cated, Professor Rich showed., Or-
dinarily the "electric eye," a battery,
and a relay are connected in a
series. A light beam is directed at
the "eye." As long as it is shining,
upon the bulb, electrons are given,
off by the hydride coating, an elec-
tric current flows, and the relay is
closed. However, when the light is
shut off, such as by inserting one's
hand between the sorce of light and
the "electric eye," the hydride coat-
ing no longer gives off electrons, no
current flows and the relay is opened.
Relay Regulates Current
The relay is an electrical device
which when properly set up can turn
on or off an electric current as theE
ordinary pushbutton on the wall
shuts on or off the light circuit, Pro-
fessor Rich explained. Thus by in-
terrupting the light beam, and thus
shutting the relay on or off, one can
operate motors, toasters, bells, or'
other electrical devices.
When the "electric eye" is used to
open and close doors, Professor Rich
continued, a light beam is directed
at the "eye" and placed in such a
position that when a person ap-
proaches the door he interrupts the
light beam. This shuts off the re-
lay, and causes a motor to be set in
motion to open the doors.
The photo-electric cell ban be used
as a mechanical device wherever the

intensity of the light shining upon
it is or can be altered, Professor Rich
declared. Thus sorting devices may
be so constructed that faulty bear-
ings can be detected by the "electric
eye" because of the difference in the
amount of light which is reflected to
the "eye" by the faulty and the per-
fect bearing.

sound expeiment il indust rial de-
centralization, according to Mr.
Disregarding the prodtlctt ion eost
situation, however, the "home in -
dustries" might, easily p'ove profi-
table from thec standpoint~ of ;adxer-I
tising or the creation of good will
amongst the Ford workers, in the
opinion of Mr. Weirs.
The workers who have been hired
in these plants have all displayed
"enthusiasm" toward the plan. Mr.
Weirs stated. The small size of the
plant, the agreeable working (n1-
ditions, the reduced cost of living,
the nearness of the plant to tIhe
workers' homes --all cont ribute to
the "ideal" character of the pllaL
from the worker's point of view.
This can hardly be regarded as
decentralization, however, he con-
tinued, since none of the workers
have been hired from the cities, and
the only effect has been a negative
effect in the possible prevention of
small town workers moving to the
larger urban areas.
An important phase of the decen-
tralization idea, and recognizedly the
intention and hope of Mr. Ford, is
the welding together of the ageri.-
cultural and industrial functions. So
far this idea has not "panned out'
in the "home industries" plan, ac-
cording to Mr. Weirs. Some of the
workers own small farms, more work
garden plots provided by the Ford
Company, but practically nothing
has been done in the way of bring-
ing the products of the workers ag-
ricultural efforts into the plant as
materials for the workers industrial
However, in Mr. Weir's opinion, it
is expected that a revolutionary
chemical development might arise
which will make possible the hard-
ening of agricultural crops for use
as a substitute for heavy metals in

automobile construction, and in that
event the Ford "home industries"
would be in a strategic position to
take advantage of the new method.
At the present tAme mosi, of what
has developed along this line has
arisen in the use of the soy bean.
Even with this lmroduct, the Ford
"home industries," such as the plants
at Sal e atid Tecumseh, purchase
the crop.s of neighboring farmers
rat her than growing the crops them-
sclvcs, Mr. Weirs pointed out.
Asked how far decentralization
milight go, Mr. Weirs stated that
while the assemblying of automobiles
is n1eressarily a large-scale process,
it is likely that a widespread decen-
tralization of the production of parts
and capital goods will take place.
Especially is this likely if the de,-
veopment of chemically-hardened
farmn products for industrial use oc-
curs. The economic benefits of piec-
ing in the industrial and the agri-
cultural labor supplies, in this event,
to prevent seasonality of production,
are fairly obvious, he believes.
Much of the production of parts

and capital goods is already "decen-
tr aized," in the sense of production
in isolated units within large factory
arcas, necessitating transportation
to the assemblying plant, Mr. Weirs
stated, and remarked "I see no rea-
son why such units cannot be more
econonically located outside the
The extra miil's of traislportation

social benefits, would greatly out-
weigh this transportational expense,
he concluded.
