side work, and the regular curricula

Plane With V-8B
Enginle Redy
For Test Run
Powered by a Ford V-8 automobile
engine, a new airplane which can be
sold for a thousand dollars less than
airships of comparable performance
is ready for tests, Rudolph Thoren
of the areonautical engineering
school and co-designer of the ship,
announced yesterday.
By -the use of an automobile en-
gine and the development of a fuse-
lage and tail assembly which can be
manufactured in comparatively few
sections, mass production methods
can be applied to all parts of the ship
except the wings, thus also reducing
costs, the continued.
Plane Is 'Pusher'
The plane, which is of the pusher
type, contains several important de-
velopments, he said. The power is
transmitted to the engine by v-belts,
allowing the motor to be placed un-I
derneath the pilot, reducing the ha-
zard in case of crash and increasing
the stability of the plane.
Since the motor has been taken
out of the way the ship has unlimited
visibility in all positions, and it will
come as a distinct shock to pilots fly-
ing the light planes to discover that
they will be able to see the ground. I
V-belt by which the power is trans-
mitted to the propellor have been
shown by tests to be not only light
and efficient but also to have excep-
tional safety characteristics since a
complete failure is almost impossible.
Eleven belts do the driving and the1

failure of several of these would!
not impair flight:
To Test Model
A model for wind tunnel tests is
at present being constructed and
these tests are expected to take place
some time during the spring.
A single metal circular column
supports the tail assembly and- the
propellor is mounted behind the pilot
using this column as a shaft. This
arrangement has considerable ad-
vantages in simplicity of production
and repair.
Although an automobile engine
has the disadvantages of extra
weight it is claimed by the designers
that the case of maintenance and
the difference in price more than
offset this.

Some of the 1,000 striking shoe workers who attempted to march from Lewiston to nearby Auburn, Me.,
are shown beating a hasty retreat as police and state troopers threw tear gas bombs into their midst. Clubs
swung and stones flew as the parade was turned back, but a few marchers filtered through the lines to

Fear Is Most Frequently Cause
Of Student Failure, Purdom Says

Family Problems Are Less
Important, More Easily
Met Than Fear
Fear problems, not problems of
family life, are most frequently the
great source. of .trouble to students,
Dr. T. Luther Purdom, director of
the Bureau of Appointments and Oc-
cupational Information said yester-
"Probably more unhappiness and
more failures are due to fear than
any other single factor. There are
hundreds of students on the campus
right now who are in'constant fear
that .they will not live up to the ex-
pectation of their parents, that they
are not being accepted socially, and
that they have little chance of suc-
ceeding either here at the University
or after .graduation," Dr. Purdom de-
Poorly adjusted family life, while
an important personal problem to
a great number, cannot take the
blame for as many student failures
as is usually pretended, he asserted.
"Naturally family life, since stronger
contacts and better friction arise at

the home than anywhere else, often
is a great source of mental disturb-
ances, but most students seem to be
able to surmount these difficulties
much better than they can those re-
lating to fear."
Dr. Purdom advanced these ideas
on the basis of 15.000 diagnostic tests
which he has conducted during the
last 11 years as director of the Bu-
reau of Appointments and Occupa-
tional Information. It is one of the
duties of the bureau to help students
analyze and correct their personal
"Needless to say, these adjustment
problems must be met and corrected
as soon as possible; for such troubles,
like turberculosis, can be cured if
doctored at an early stage, but one
who has been affilicted with the 'dis-
ease' for a long time stands little or
no chance of a full recovery," he
"According to a comparison of the'
records of high-school students who
have received the help of our service
with those who have not, our diag-
noses and programs for improvement
have, on the whole, been unusually
successful," Dr. Purdom concluded.
