The University of Michigan is
meeting the growing interest in the
East by offering a unique, interde-
partmental degree program in Orien-
tal Civilizations, according to mem-
bers of the committee in charge of
The United States is said to be

Students at the University, during
their hectic period of catalog-thumb-
ing, are prone to think in terms of
departments, but the student . in-
-erested in the East, either for study
here or work there, has the oppor-
tunity of getting a broad acquaint-
ance with Asia through the cooper-
ation of nine departments. of the lit-
erary college. National authorities
in Oriental studies for the past two
years have presented every phase of
this vast field.
Prof. Joseph R. Hayden of the po-
litical science department, Prof. Rob-
ert B. Hall of the geography depart-
;ment and Dr. John W. Stanton of
the history department are members
of the faculty group presenting this
comp'site program. Prof. Charles F.
Remer of the economics department,
Dr. William H. Worrell, Professor of
Semitics, Prof. Roderick D. McKensie
of the sociology department, Dr. Carl
E. Guthe and Dr. Tetive both of the
anthropology department, Miss Ade-
laide A. Adams of the fine arts di-
vision and Prof. Mehmet Aga-Oglu of
the Islamic arts department are oth-
er members of the board.
A student may specialize either in
one region, such as the Near or ar
East, or in one phase, for example,
economics or geography of Asia.
This course, which transcends de-
partment lines provides a really ex-
tensive and intensive study of the
Orient, which is becoming increas-
ingly important politically and ec-
onicaly to the United States.
3 Ships Wrecked
(By the Associated Press)
A schooner sank, a Norwegian
freighter was believed a total loss,
and another grounded and was later
refloated today in the North Atlantic
or its coastal waters.
The Canadian schooner W. Dicks,
bound to St. Pierre et Miquelon with
80 tons of coal, sprang a leak 25 miles
off Pointe-Platte, Miquelon, and
sank. The captain and crew of four
men reached shore in a dory after
rowing 17 hours. .
The 1,137 ton freighter Magnhkld1
went ashore at Mistaken Point, near
Cape Race, Newfoundland, in a dense
fog. Her crew of 20 escaped to shore,
but the ship is expected to be a total
Another Norwegian boat, the Ev-
viva, 1,197 tons, grounded on Fox
Point, near Port Greville, N.S., in the
Bay of Fundy, but was later re-c
flated and towed to Parrsboro, N.S.,I
Upswing Is Reported In
May's Building Activity
WASHINGTON, June 6.-(A)-A
"widespread upswing" in building ac-
tivity was reported today in a spe-
cial Commerce Department survey.
Gathering statistics in 100 repre-
sentative cities, the department said
the number of buiding permits issued
in May increased 76 per cent over
the same month a year ago.,
This gain, the survey said, was a
broad enough sample "to give it the

d In Tama
TAMA, Ia., June 6.- WP) --Rescue
workers tugged at the tangled debriF
of four business buildings tonight in
search of victims of an explosion
which injured critically at least seven
persons shortly before noon.
Somewhere in the wreckage they
expected to find the body of a miss-
ing boy, and possibly others.
A hail of broken glass blown out
when the blast tore the buildings
apart had cut more than 30 persons
in the business district.
The body the rescue workers ex-
pected to find was that of Billy Bar-
tling, son of Mrs. William Bartling,
of Toledo, Ia.
As firemen pulled Mrs. Bartling
from beneath a pile of bricks and
timber, she was crying:
"Where's Billy? Where's my boy?"
Soon she lost consciousness.
The known critically injured are:
John Hess, Mrs. Lyle Mooney and
Clifford Hill, all of Tama; Mrs. Wil-
liam Bartling and Hugh McDonald,
both of Toledo; Joe Zeman, Tama,
and Selmer Nelson, Gilman.
The explosion, Fire Chief Henry
Anderson said, occurred probably in
the Gamble store, a two-story brick
building, "since it was simply turned
into a pile of bricks, timber and store
stock with part of the roof on top."
Virtually every window along the
block was shattered and bricks and
timbers were hurled a half block
across the railroad tracks.

ing, the new unit will be incorporated
with a speech monitor and amplifier,
power supplies and controls and mod-
ulator equipment. These latter, which
occupy more space than does the
actual transmitter, will contribute
not a little to the job of operating
In the transmitter's oscillator
stage, starting point of the electrical
impulses which will eventually in
modified and amplified form go out
into the air, four different crystals
are used to hold the vibrations exact-
ly on their respective frequencies. To
render the code and phone transmis-
sion interchangeabl erequires a pair
of crystals for each wave length.
However, one pair of the crystals
are of the 40-meter band type, since
a crystal suitable for 20-meter wave
length would be too thin for reliable
operation. In the next stage of the
transmitter, called a doubler, the
frequency of these 40-meter vibra-
tions is doubled, thus reducing the
wave length to the 20 meters desired.
When 80-meter transmission is being
used, the doubler stage acts as an
The power supply for the oscil-
lator stage, which uses a type 47
tube, is located along with the stage
on the third shelf down, in the trans-
mitter. Copper shielding separates'
the power supply and oscillator, and
the entire shelf is also shielded.
On this, as on all the stages, jacks
are provided so that meters may be
inserted in the various circuits. Thus
at any time the current passing and
voltage present may be read for any
part of the circuit.
In both the doubler stage and the
succeeding buffer stage a type 46 tube
is used. The two stages are mounted
on the second shelf down and are
separated by a copper shield. For
both 20-and 80- meter operation
the buffer stage acts as an amplifier.
For code operation the key relay cir-
cuit may be inserted in either of
these two stages.
The final amplifier, on the top
shelf, includes two type 10 push-pull
tubes. Neutralizing condensers which
are used to prevent ocsillation of the
amplifying tubes and subsequent for-
mation of unmanageable radio waves
are located in this stage. A bias of
about 70 volts will be placed on the
grids of the tubes.
Interchangeable coils for the dif-
ferent bands are used in all the stages.
Power supplies for the stages are
located in the lower part of the
transmitter and include rectifying
units for the crystals, for the plates
of the four radio frequency amplify-
ing tubes, for the C-bias of the final
amplifiers and for the driver and
modulator stages. The filaments of"
the radio frequency tubes are heated
from individual transformer wind-
In the driver stage, which performs
the functions of speech amplification
and power control for phone trans-
mission, the vibrations of the sound
waves are picked up and strength-
ened. A monitor, by means of which
the operator may hear the sound as
the instrument secures it, is a part
of the equipment.
The output from the driver stage
passes into the modulator which su-
perimposes the sound frequency upon
the radio frequency waves, which are
then ready to be emitted from the
Control of the entire transmitter
will be centered by relays upon a
single small push-button panel.
In all some 19 tubes ranging in
output from one-tenth of a watt to
250 watts will be used in the unit.
It is expected that the present 400-
watt code transmitter will be com-
bined with the new system.
