300 St. Louis
Alumni Present
For Breakfast
Ballroom Is Pressed Into
Use To Accommodate
Crowd; 90_Expected
Prof. George E. Carrothers, director
of the Bureau of Cooperation with
Educational Institutions, just re-
turned from the convention of the
department of superintendence of
the National Education Association in
St. Louis, yesterday gave the particu-
1ars of the Michigan Breakfast held
in the Hotel Jefferson Tuesday morn-
"I was prepared for about ninety
graduates, but at 8 a.m. over three
hundred alumni showed up," said
Professor Carrothers, who was in
charge of the arrangements. "We
had engaged a private dining room,
but the large attendance necessitated
the removal of the breakfast to the
main ballroom, and even then some
of the graduates had to hold their
conversations in the smoking rooms."
For two hours, old classmates met
each other for the first time in years,
Professor Carrothers said, with al-
most every state being represented.
Dean J. B. Edmonson of the School
of Education, was toastmaster, and
talks were given by William Mac-
Andrew, '86, now on the editorial
board of "School and Society" at 75
years of age after an active life in the
field of education, by A. J. Stoddard,
president of the superintendence de-
partment of the N.E.A., and a grad-
uate of Michigan; and by E. C. War-
riner, president of Central State
Teachers College at Mt. Pleasant.
Speeches were also given by E. L.
Bowsher, '13, state superintendent of
Ohio schools, and by Eugene B.
Eliot, superintendent of Michigan
schools, both University graduates.
"Copies of Michigan songs were
handed out, "Professor Carrothers
said, "and the ballroom rang with

A telegram from President Ruth-
yen was read at the opening of the
"Most cordial greetings from the
University of Michigan to its alumni
and others from this state. We are
proud of Michigan's large and ef-
ficient representation among Ameri-
can educators and we hope the Na-
tional Education Association meet-
ings this year again prove an inspira-
tion toward freshened and broadened
ideals in the teaching profession." '

Thousands Visit In New Orleans For
Bright Climax To Mardi Gras Carnival

(Special to The Daily)
NEW ORLEANS, Feb. 26. - Thou-
sands of persons from all over the
nation made their way homeward
from this holiday-decorated city to-
day as the colorful bedlam of gaiety
of the Mardi Gras, which ended at
midnight, died away.
Weather for the pageantry of this
famed carnival, which has lost much
of its former religious significance,
was perfect, and the Mardi Gras kings
and queens, regaled in their gro-
tesque dress, paraded and danced in
the sunny streets. They were wit-
nessed by the largest Mardi Gras
crowd in history, according to those
in charge, a crowd which lost itself
when all New Orleans was trans-
formed into a riot of color as the
carnival reached its climax at the
crowning of the Grand Monarch -
Season Began Saturday
The Mardi Gras season was official-
ly inaugurated at noon Saturday by
King Nor, tiniest, yet mightiest of
the carnival monarchs, while thou-
sands of persons jammed the streets
for a glimpse of him and his red,
gold, green, purple and blue retinue
of more than 60 floats. The first'
pageant was made up only of gram-
mar and high school students, the
theme of their parade being "His-
toric Places of the Vieux Carre"
(French Quarter). One of the clev-
erest and most impressive of the
many floats included an iron gate
ajar, disclosing a courtyard of the
ever-present yucca palms in an old
cream-colored water jar. Pink and
yellow costumes clustered at the rear
and an old lamp jutted out from a

"All the world's a stage," and so
was a float by that name. The first

favorite performer residing in New
Scores of other beautiful floats por-
trayed many different scenes of this

as it was 150 years ago. Yet to go
through the section today you wonder
if it has changed so very much since

fense of New Orleans against the

chitecturally unique structures rang-
ing in age from 100 to more than
200 years, within whose walls have
been written the thrilling chapters

of the rise of the civilization of that
vast area originally known as the
Louisiana Territory.
Orleamans and the thousands of
out-of-town visitors who were swarm-
ing all over New Orleans for the an-
nual festival of Carnival jammed
both banks of the Mississippi to wit-
ness the arrival to the city of the
Sea God Proteus.
Hold River Display
A bedlam of screaming sirens, hoot-
ing hug-boats and deep voiced steam-
ers brdke loose when King Alla
steamed up the river aboard the U.S.
Destroyer Schenck. Accompanying
the King and his royal party were
scores of gaily decorated yachts and
smaller boats, all in full regatta flags,
adding a colorful scene to the New
Orleans waterfront where many are
docked during the festivities.
Yet the river bedlam was just an
echo when the Mardi Gras reached
its climax and all New Orleans went
mad with color, masking from dawn
to dusk, dancing in the streets, to
the honor and glory of Rex, the mon-
arch of Mardi Gras.
With trains, bus-lines, planes, auto-
mobiles and boats bringing additional
thousands to New Orleans, the city
was crowded with the largest Carnival
crowd in history, according to Car-
nival statistics.
Waterfront Colorful
Sunday's high temperature and
brilliant sunshine started thousands
of early arrivals off on a round of
sight-seeing. During the day the
docks were crowded with visitors from
every section of the country who hur-
ried to the waterfront for an in-
spection of the visiting battleships
and ocean liners.
The fishing villages near' New Or-
leans with their boat-crowded bay-
ous; the coastal i4rairies covered
with swamp grass, waist high, and
broken with placid pools and winding
bayous and the cypress swamps with
gnarled old trees festooned with gray
moss-all this proved intensely in-
teresting to visitors who sought the
typical and unusual outside the city

outside New Orleans in seeking the

About 20 students will leave for
Toledo tomorrow noon on the so-
ciology field trip being sponsored by
the Student Christian Association.
The purpose of the trip, according
to Miriam Hall, Grad., is to provide
the student non-academic opportuni-
ties to deepen his insight into modern
society and its problems, and is not
designed primarily for the students
concentrating in sociology. Prof.
Charles J. Bushnell of the University
of Toledo's sociology department has,
upon the request of Prof. Roderick D.
McKenzie of the University's so-
ciology department, arranged the it-
inerary for the group while in Toledo.
Saturday the group will visit the
University of Toledo, and then pro-
ceed to the Belmont Avenue district
of Toledo, where they will see the-
program of housing and slum clear-
ing being carried out. Verne Pfaen-
der, Federal director of housing in
the Toledo area, will address the
group. A meeting with labor leaders
has also been planned in the Toledo
Sunday the students will meet with
the relief and employment workers
and will hear a talk by J. Branch

Donelson, director of the Ohio State
employment service. Later in the
afternoon, the students will visit the
Toledo Art Museum and the Bay View
Park Colony. They are expected to
return to Ann Arbor early Sunday
Those interested in making the
trip should get in touch with Dorothy

World, particularly throughout 15
square blocks makn up the Vieux
Carre, the French Quarter.
To the Carnival visitors the French
Quarter is the most interesting sec-
tion of all New Orleans. Its early
mixture of French and Spanish ar-
chitecture combining the Spanish
courtyard and the overhanging bal-
conies of the seventeenth century
French style of construction gives one
the impression that he has been
transplanted to the quaintest section
of Paris.
In every corner of the section are
bars and restaurants of every variety
appealing to all tastes, where the cui-
sine is unequaled. Turci's, Antoine's,
and the Patio Royal are crowded
nightly with out-of-town diners, and
for those particular about their fancy
drinks the Old Absinthe Bar is the
most popular.

Cyclotron Test
Creates Radi
Active Material
A liorniiai Sceintis s ;ets
Results By Bomardig
Bismulith Withi Atomis'
Using a cyclotron, similar to the
one which is now being built by the
physics department, Dr. J. J. Livin-
good, research associate at the Uni-
versity of California, created a radio-
active substance which is found in
nature, according to a recent release
from the Science News Letter,
Bombarding bismuth, an element
with a large atomic weight, with
deutrons in the cyclotron, Dr. Livin-
good found that the Radium E which
resulted followed the regular series
of radioactive elements, the News
Letter reported. The Radium E de-
cayed with a half-life of five days by
emitting electrons, and in the end
produced lead.
With his 85-ton cyclotron, Prof. E.
O. Lawrence, designer of the appara-
tus, also of the University of Cali-
fornia, has transmuted more than
one third of all the elements known
to man. Recently he has converted
platinum into gold, the News Letter
stated. The cyclotron is also useful
in making neutrons, neutrally charged
atomic particles which are invaluable
in bombarding atoms in order to
study their construction and consti-
Success with the cyclotron has re-
sulted in replicas of it being built
in seventeen research centers, includ-
ing one by the University, which ma-
chine is now nearing completion.
Seven of these machines are being
constructed in foreign countries, three
in Russia, two in England, and one
each in Japan and Denmark.
The deutron bullets which Dr. Liv-
ingood employed in making Radium
E are nuclei of double weighted hy-
drogen atoms obtained from heavy
water costing approximately $600 a
pint, the Science News Letter com-
mented. They are shot out of the cy-
clotron with a velocity of about 12,000
miles per second, about one hundred
thousand billion of them being
emitted pei second.

87-Year Old Scientist Had
Won Nobel Prize For
Animal Experiments
MOSCOW, Feb. 27. - (P) -Russia's
great scientist, Ivan Pavloff, noted
for his theories of conditioned re-
flexes and his experiments with the
brain processes of animals, died to-
day. He was 87 years old.
A form of la grippe was the cause
of death.1
Pavloff won the Nobel prize in 1904j
for his works on the salivary glands
and digestion, and turned in later
years to an intriguing mechanical
theory of life.
It was his contention that all the'
acts of life are reflex and just as
mechanical as that of the baby who
pulls his finger out of the fire.
To prove this theory he experi-
mented for many years with dogs,
monkeys, rabbits and other animals.
In addition bto a small menagerie,
his Leningrad laboratory contained
equipment for measuring the thoughts
of animals, the intensity of their
brain processes and even their very
wishes, hopes and disappointments.
Pavloff, however, during 1929 ob-
jected strenuously to the inclusion7
of several Communist representatives
whom he termed "nobodies" in the
His attitude then recalled his ear-1
lier rebuff to Lenin when, in the
famine days of 1921, the Bolshevik
leader offered to augment Pavloff'sx
daily ration of a half pound of black
bread and a handful of frozen pota-
"Not while my friends and col-z
leagues are starving!" the scientist
Before the international congress
of physiologists, of which he wasz
president, he said he had succeeded in
setting up in dogs the same condi-
tions of mental derangement as occur
in humans and that in many cases,
notably by the use of bromide, cured
neuroses which had lasted for months.
