Reading Taste
Mere Is Low,
Heller Asserts
Thee American population has a
decidedly low standard of literary
culture, asserted Dr. Otto Hellr,
Dean Emeritus of the Graduate
School of Washington University, St.
Louis, in an interview yesterday, in
spite of the fact that there is a mass
tendency in America towards read-
ing and an abundance of young writ-
ers with ability. Substantiating this
statement, he mentioned that there
were only two execlent magazines
which do not have to struggle for
their existence, "Harper's Monthly"
and the "Atlantic Monthly."
Interested in educational move-
ments because of the 46 years spent
at Washington University, and hold-
ing as many as five positions at once,
including editor of university publi-
cations, head of the German de-
partment and head of the depart-
mnent of general literature, Dr. Heller
has spent this year in lecturing. Since
his retirement last year, he has ad-
vocated the spreading by schools of
more classical or good literature to
change the attitude of the American
people. He. feels that the teachers
should occupy themselves more with
literary interests in order to educate
the 'people. - . s
Although he has only been in Ann
Arbor for two days, Dr. Heller said
that he was very impressed by the
large teaching body of the collegiate
division. Too often, he stated, most
of the men connected with a univer-
sity devote themselves to professional
schools, and the college of literature
and science has to content itself with
only a small fraction of the total fac-
ulty.
German Play

Set To Opeii
Deutscher Verein Presents
Comedy Monday Night
Preparations for the annual Ger-
man play sponsored by the Deutscher
Verein are rapidly drawing to a close
for the performance at 8:15 Monday
in the Lydia Mendelssohn Theatre,
according to Dr. Otto G. Graf of the
German department and director of
the play.
The play, Ludwig Fulda's comedy,
"Die Gegenkandidaten," is a satire
of post-war Germany politics in which
a husband and wife are nominated
by rival parties for candidacy to the
Landstag, Dr. Graf said.
Rehearsals have been going on-
since March, and by Sunday evening,
the dress rehearsal, all will be in
readiness, Dr. Graf hopes. Tickets will
be available at Wahr's bookstore, the
German department office and from
all German instructors.

Fresh Air Camp
Yields Material
ForSociology
Realizing the unusual opportuni-
ties of the camping situation for in-
tensive study of human adjustment,
the University of Michigan Summer
Session is again offering courses in
education- and sociology at the
University Fresh Air Camp for Boys
this summer. The camp, which is lo-
cated 25 miles north of Ann Arbor on
a chain of nine small lakes, is man-
aged by a University committee, of
which Prof. Ferdinand N. Menefee is
chairman.
Fifty Candidates
Fifty candidates, mostly men, will
be selected to profit from the ex-
perience and study of the camp ses-
sion from June 19 to Aug. 19. A few
especially qualified women may also
take courses there although no pro-
vision will be made for their resi-
dence in the camp. Men students,
however, will live witli the boys and'
act as counselors. Not only will the
training provide for creative expres-
sion, functional participation and
group thinking, but it will also al-
low the students to help in the
general administration of the camp,
Professor Menefee stated.
Six Hours Maximum'
Six semester hours will constitute
the maximum load for any one stu-
dent. All courses taken carry gradu-
ate credit*and will be presented by
faculty members of the .University
Summer Session. Two student coun-
selors, under the supervision of ex-
perienced head counselors, will guide
the activities of six to eight boys.
Approximately half 'of the student's
time will be spent in preparation of
the work required by the courses,
while the remaining time will be al-
lotted to participation in the camp-
ing program with adequate time for
recreation.
Preference in the choice of the 50
counselors will be given to: students
majoring in education, sociology;
public health and allied fields. Pre-
vious camping, teaching and group
work experience will also be. selective
factors. Senior standing. in'an ap-
proved college will be a minimum
scholastic requirement but graduate
students will receive preference:

Varied Uses Of Fluorescent

A study of the fluorescent proper-
ties of various chemical substances
has lead to many useful applica-
tions of this spectacular phenomena
both in the field of science and in
industry, Prof. Hobart H. Willard of
the chemistry department pointed
out recently.
Many chemical compounds, when
exposed to ultra violet light, reflect
the "invisible" light as a visible glow
similar to that emitted by a. radium
dial watch. This glow is known as
fluorescence.
Perhaps the ymost publicized use of
fluorescent properties is in the in-
vestigation of forgeries by police lab-
oratories. Two documents, when ex-
amined under ordinary light may
appear identical even to the expert,
yet when the same samples are viewed
under fluorescent light, a striking
difference may often be observed.
The difference in appearance under
the ultra violet light is due to fluores-
cent ingredients which'appear iden-
tical under ordinary light, but which
fluoresce differently.
Modern industry, Professor Wil-
lard stated, has also found fluores-
cent to be useful in many fields of
practical application. Such sub-
stances have made possible the pres-
ent type of television receiver known
as the cathod ray projector. In this
type projector, a fluorescent screen is

bombarded with a stream of invisible
electrons, The energy from these
high-speed electrons excites the flu-
orescent material on the screen; and
a visible image results.
A new type of electric lamp recent-
ly placed on the market makes use of
fluorescent substances to give illumi-
nation. The lamp consists of. a tube
in which a mixture of argon gas and
mercury vapor are present. When this
mixture is excited by an elecrtic cur-
rent, some visible light and consid-
erable ultra violet light are emitted.
The inside surface of the tube is
coated with various fluorescent ma-
terials which convert the invisible ul-
tra violet radiations into visible light
of a color depending upon the ma-
terials used. The color of the re-
sulting light can thus be made either
almost monochromatic or mixed to
produce light closely resembling day-
light.
A knoweldge of fluorescent proper-
ties has also greatly aided prospect-
ing for certain minerals, Professor
Willard indicated. Several types of
metallic ores, such as those of tung-
sten, emit' fluorescent radiations
when exposed to ultra-violet light.
With the aid of a portable ultra-
violet ray lamp, veins of ores can
easily be located. Under the influ-
ence of these rays the minerals sought
are seen to glow.
