OHaru Losses Fight
To Regain Office
LANSING, Mich., June 4. -- UP --
Elmer B. O'Hara, Demopratic State
Central Committee chairman, lost
his fight in the Supreme Court to-
day to oust Henry A. Montgomery
as Wayne County clerk and regain
the office himself.
O'Hara had been removed as clerk
by the judges of the Wayne County
Circuit Court after his conviction in
Macomb County for bribery. He later
was convicted also of fraud in con-
nection with the 1934 election re-
O'Hara contended in his petition to
the Supreme Court that his removal
was not based on legal grounds be-
cause he had appealed the Macomb
County conviction.. The conviction
ultimately was set aside.
The high court ruled today, how-
ever, that the judges have the right
to declare an office vacant after its
incumbent has been convicted of a
felony, regardless of the future- dis-
pensation of the case.
Black Legion Quiz
More Illuminating
Three grand jury inquiries in Mich-
igan counties accused the dreaded
Black Legion of flogging as the se-
crets of the night riding terror were

Earl Angstadt, Ecorse, who is em-
ployed in a steel mill, said that he
had been a member of the Black
Knights of Ohio before he came to
this state but that there was a wide
difference between this organization
and the Black Legion.
"In Ohio the Black Knights are
vigilantes and work in close harmony
with law officials," he said. "My fa-
ther and grandfather were members
there. I was 21 when my father in-
structed me on the ritual before I
was admitted to membership. Here
in Michigan they are a different out-

out, Dr. Winnacker said, or, if they
were, they were only partly success-
ful in lowering the cost of living. The
French worker thus found his stand-
ard of living, not too high in the first
place, Dr. Winnacker declared, con-
siderably the worse off.
"The recent elections in France in
April and May, Dr. Winnacker point-
ed out, "which turned out to be a vic-
tory for the heft, seemed to indicate,
I think, to the worker that he would
find a government sympathetic with
his case. Hence the strike to raise
his living condition to its pre-depres-
sion standard."
This present strike crisis, repeated
Dr. Winnacker, can be settled by the
employers granting the higher wages
which the workers ask, or by the
French government changing its
policy from deflation to inflation, or
an easy money policy, which the
French call "re-flation."

600,000 Volt Transformer
Moved Into East Physics Bldg.

Marking another stage in the de-
velopment of the large atom-smash-
ing vacuum tube, the first three sec-
tions of a huge, five-part iransiorm-
er were moved into the large, high-
voltage room of the East Physics
Building yesterday.
The three sections, which stand 1(
feet high, are constructed to suppl
600,000 volts. The newly-arrivec
transformers, together with two more
which have yet to be added, will
complete an apparatus that will pro-
vide one million volts for the 16 ft
pyrex glass vacuum tube.
"Although the construction com-
menced last fall, it is not expected tc
be completed until next month," said
Dr. H. R. Crane, of the physics de-
partment, who is in charge of the
Besides making it possible to de-
termine the nuclear force which binds
a proton, which is a positive particle,
with a neutron, which has no charge
at all, the apparatus will open the
way to many other experiments of
this sort. Neutrons, obtained from
the nucleus of the atom, are expected
to be used in biological and medical
experiments by the staff of the Uni-
versity Hospital, who are anxiously
awaiting the completion of this pow-
erful "linear ion accelerator."
"Lest it be misunderstood," stated
Dr. Crane, "it should be made clear
that this set-up and the cyclotron
are two different apparatuses alto-
gether. The main thing in common
is the fact that each of them has,
for its object of attack, the subject
of nuclear disintegration. They ne-
cessitate, however, a completely dif-
ferent mode of approach," and it is
highly improbable that the two
groups of experimenters will ever en-
croach upon each others' territory.
The field of atomic physics is much
too large for that."'
Another function of the tube will
be to provide high-energy gamma
rays-rays of a type which can be
obtained in no other way artificially.
3 Million Gallons
Of Water Bought
Daily For Campus
When the "putt-putt-putt' of a
gasoline engine interrupts your class,
and the professor stalks across the
floor and shuts the windows with a
bang, then you can be sure it is one
of the power lawnmowers used to
cut the grass on campus.
Every spring the buildings and
grounds department gives the cam-
pus its annual cleaning. The de-
partment has about 61 in its per-
snnel, but only 10 of this number
work on the grounds during the time
when there is a great deal of work
to be done. They are kept busy with
raking, mowing, sprinkling, and car-
ing for shrubs and trees.
Grass Sprinkled At Night
There are approximately 40 acres
to the campus proper so that gives
each man about four acres to keep
up. Sprinkling is always done at
night to prevent the grass from burn-
ing, but trees and shrubs are watered
during the day. The University buys
about 3,000,000 gallons of water every
day for use on the entire campus.1
From this amount hardly 150,0001
gallons is used to keep the campus
in a verdant state. The water is
carried through 1,000 feet of hose,
or 20 sections 50 feet long. The
hose is also used for concrete work,
flushing sewers, and in other work
where water is needed.
Dandelions Numerous
If the amount of noise made is any
sign of the most work accomplished,
then mowing takes the prize. Five
gasoline and half a dozen hand mow-
ers take ca'e of the grass cutting.
The lawns are kept short so that a
large part of the weeds will be killed.

Dandelions seem to be the most nu-
merous in spite of constant cutting.
Between 300 and 400 pounds of grass

The only other known source of these
radiations is the cosmic ray.
"Although these gamma rays have
a voltage of 16,000,000, six times
greater than the most energetic gam-
ma rays shot out by naturally-occur-
ing radioactive elements, strangely
enough, they cannot penetrate lead
nearly so far as the 2,600,000 volt rays
of thorium--thorium which is a com-
mon source for gamma radiation,"
asserted Dr. Crane. "This is ex-
plained," he continued, "by the fact
that these high energy radiations lose
their energy in giving birth to posi-
tive-negative electron pairs; in other
words, radiant energy is converted in-
to matter."
As for the positive electrons men-
tioned above, the ordinary physics
student would be immediately non-
plussed, for to him an electron is, by
definition, a negative particle. Nev-
ertheless, the electron with the posi-
tive charge does exist-but not for
long; as a matter of fact, about one
ten-millionth of a second. This posi-
tive electron exists, according to Dr.
Crane, only while it is moving with a
great velocity, and, as soon as it
comes to rest, it combines with the
first negative electron it meets, and
the result-mutual annihilation. In
this process mass is converted back
into radiant energy.
While on the subject, Dr. Crane
said that neutrons are also thought
to have a relatively short life. They,
however, are not annihilated like the
positive electrons, but are captured
within a fraction of a second, by the
heavy nucleus of some atom.

Two bullets, in the chest, one near
his heart, killed Charles Wesley Phy,
27, an instructor in the English de-
partment. Wesley L. Clow, 23, of
Pine Castle, Fla., the student,2shot
himself in the head.
Clow, rated just below a passing
grade, demanded a re-examination
of the young instructor. Harry Snave-
ly, of Lancaster, Pa., another stu-
dent and the only other person in
the recitation room, said the in-
structor told Clow he needed writ-
ten approval from the dean.
"Well," muttered Clow.
Phy, apparently sighting a pistol,
shouted, "Oh, don't," Snavely re-
Several shots rang out.
Phy, wounded, ran from the room,
collapsed in a downstairs corridor.
He died in a hospital. Clow stepped
outside the room and shot himself.
He died about a half hour after
the instructor.

Senior students, who have not al-
ready done so, are urged to take ad-
vantage of the opportunity to have
themselves thoroughly examined and
receive any necessary medical at-
tention at the Health Service before
graduation. By obtaining prescrip-
tions for glasses and the health
certificates which many employers are
demanding, a great deal of future in-
convenience can be avoided.
