Of Study Group
Non-Resident Post Given
To Professor Meecham
For Summer Session
Prof. J. Lloyd Meecham of the
University of Texas will be one of
the non-resident members of the
faculty for the Institute of Latin
American Studies 'to be held here
during the Summer Session, Prof.
Preston E. James, director of the
Institute, announced yesterday.
Professor Meecham, who has done
graduate work in the Latin-American
field, is a recognized authority on the
governments of Latin America and
their relationships with the United
The purpose of the Institute will be
threefold: to focus attention on a rela-
tively undeveloped field of study by
offering courses and seminars under
a staff drawn from this country and'
Latin America; to permit the expert
to see the problem of Latin American
study as a whole by attending lec-
tures and discussions; and to afford
all the participants the possibility of
training in the Spanish and Portu-
guese languages and literatures with
a special stress on the development of
the distinctly American forms of both.
Marley To Mark
Decade Olf Service
The Rev. Harold P. Marley will
mark his tenth year of service at the
Unitarian church today with a ser-
mon on, "Liberals, Today and Ten
Years Ago," in which he will analyze
the, "Reflection of the Cniversity
Mind" as set up by a body of pro-
fessors 10 years ago.
During the decade he has been
here, Reverend Marley has used his
summer leave of absences to do social
reconstruction work in the southern
coal areas for the Friends' Service
committee. Reverend Marley has
served on the Community Fund{
board for four years!

Cosmic Rays
Are Discussed
Aid In Investigating Matter
Stressed By Anderson
The study of cosmic rays has great-
ly aided physicists in investigating
the nature of matter, Prof. Carl An-
derson, Nobel Prize winner from the
California Institute of Technology,
stated last night at a lecture spon-
sored by Sigma Xi, honorary seien-+
tific society.-
Cospiic ray research, Professor An-
derson said, has given scientists a
great deal of information about ele-
mentary particles and it is hoped
that they .will be equally useful in
investigating distant stars and ne-
Studies made on cosmic rays with
the famous 200 inch Mt. Palomar
telescope now under construction,
Professor Anderson predicted, may
bring to light many new facts about
distant heavenly bodies.
Professor Anderson pointed out the
tremendous energy of cosmic ray par-
ticles, which are 1,000 times as great
as that of any other particle known
to physicists. This large amount of
energy enables the cosmic ray par-
ticle to produce great changes in
atoms. Upon striking an electron
a new particle, the positron, may be
Acolytes To Meet
Acolytes, University philosophical
society, will meet at 7:30 p.m. to-
morrow in the Graduate School, to
hear Dr. F. R. Bichowski present a
paper on "Factors Common to thel
Mind and the External World."

Lumilne Lamo Called Great Advance

Clari-phane Silk



U--- --

The largest step forward in the
field of illuminating engineering since
the invention of the tungsten filia-
ment lamp is the new "fluorescent
lumiline" light recently placed on
the market, Prof. Henry T. Higbie of
the department of electrical engineer-
ing stated yesterday.
This new light tube is very similar
in appearance to the older type "tube
lights" in that it resembles a long
frosted glass tube. Its construction

You may be the last word in fashion,
You may be the most perfect in pose;
But in this day and age you are never correct,
If you fail to give thought to your hose.
There's the one and two thread for evening,
There's the three thread, just fine for teas;
But for comfort and great satisfaction,
The four threaded chiffonne will please.
But perchance your hobby is hiking,
Or on office may be your throne;
There's a neat looking semi-service,
That's a practical hose to own.
Now remember your gown may be gorgeous,
And your wrap as correct as they make;
If you've failed in selections of hosiery,
You have made a drastic mistake.
-By Mrs. E. W. Reutter of the
Michigan Theatre Building
Featuring the famous Butterfly Top Hose-by Aberle

and operation is, however, very dif-
The great advantage of the new
"tube" lies in its greater efficiency.
That is, it gives much more light for
the same expenditure of electrical
power than the types of lights now
in use.
Contrasting the new "daylight lu-
miline" with the incandescent day-
light bulb, Professor Higbie cites
several comparative figures. The or-
dinary incandescent blue bulb has
an efficiency of 4 to 8 lumens per
watt, depending on the whiteness of
its light, while that of the new tube
is between 30 and 35 lumens per watt.
Phenomenal as this increase may
seem, Professor Higbie cautions, we
are still far from perfection. The
theoretically perfect lamp would give
nearly 10 times as much light of com-
parable quality per watt. Other out-
standing advantages of the new bulb
are its smaller heat radiation and its
lower brightness.
The new tube generates only one-
half as much heat for the same
amount of light as an ordinary bulb,
and of this heat, 60 per cent is dis-
sipated close to the lamp. Thus
the amount of heat radiated to the
surroundings is about 25 per cent of
that from a tungsten filament bulb
delivering the same light illumina-
The even distribution of light over
the entire surface of the tube pro-
duces an agreeable appearance to the
eyes. With no single point of high
brilliancy, the light does not blind
the eyes, and obviates the need for
the enclosing globe that is often
necessary with present bulbs to low-
er the point intensity of the light.
This results in a further saving of
light. The new lamp, Professor fig-
bie paints out, is also less subject to
flickering than the older incandes-
cent filiament lamp.
The uses of the new tubes are va-
ried. The many hues and shades of
color available lend themselves well
to the requirements of interior dec-
orators. They have a great advan-
tage over incandescent lamps for

cates, in that the new tubes can be
made to generate only the particular
color desired, whereas present colored
lights generate all colors and those
not desired have to be filtered out,
with a corresponding loss of effi-

gives the nearest approach to na-
tural daylight of any lamp in use
The principle of operation of the
fluorescent lumiline is very different
from any other lamp in use today.
The light source is a mixture of argon
gas and mercury vapor. When excit-
ed by an electric current, this gives
off some visible light, but much more
in the invisible ultra-violet spec-
trum. The inside surface of the
tube is coated with fluorescent and
phosphorescent substances which
convert these invisible ultra-violet
radiations into visible light of a color
depending upon the nature of the
substance used.
