Railroads Are
Debate Subject
For Next Fall
Government ownership and opera-
tion of the railroads will be discussed
by the men's varsity debate squad in
next fall's contests.
Three of this year's squad which
traveled to the Big Ten meet in Chi-
cago in April have participated in
their last contest for Michigan.
Robert Rosa, '39, will take up his
studies in England as an Oxford
scholar, Louis Poplinger, '39, is enter-
ing Harvard Law School, and Jack
Shuler, '40E, plans to enter Law
School here. Of the five varsity men,
only William Muehl, '41, and Sidney
Davidson, '40, will return.
- Team Wins Twice
After holding the Big Ten cham-
pionship title for the last five years,
the Michigan team came out of the
conference this spring with only two
wins out of eight contests. Michigan
squads also competed in more than
eight local contests this semester, in-
cluding a radio meet with Wayne
University. Rosa and Shuler met a
team at the University of Western
Ontario March' 27 on the semester's
topic "Resolved, That the United
States Should Cease To Use Govern-
ment Funds, Including Credit, For the
Stimulation of Business."
Argue On Great Britain
On the first semesters schedule,
Rosa and Shuler took the only de-
cision contest of the semester from
Purdue Nov. 17 on the question "Re-
solved,iThat theAUnited States Should
Establish An Alliance With Great
Britain." That pair also met the Uni-
versity of Western Ontario here Oct.
28 and Michigan State Oct. 22. Rosa
and Oliver Crager, '39, argued at the
University of Indiana Nov. 18. Jack
Zuideveld, '40, and Poplinger debated
Ohio State here Nov. 16 and Muehl
and Davidson met Indiana Dec. 1.

ary Guild selection for January and
is the first story by a Hopwood win-
ner ever to be translated into a
foreign langtaage. Her first novel,

Ma-Made Quakes
A ssistig Scientists
in OiEporto
Miniature, man-made earthquakes
are helping scientists map the inside
of the earth's crust in an oil explora-
tion on the north island of New Zea-
land, according to details of this mod-
ern method of geological exploration
received recently from Prof. Lewis B.
Kellum of the Department of Geology,
now on leave of absence.
Earth tremors created by exploding
dynamite are the essential ingredi-
ents of the new mapping process as
it is followed by Professor Kallum
and his staff. The process involves
setting off of charges of dynamite
and the reco'ding the tremors re-
flected back to the earth's surface
from the various deep lying rock for-
nations. The reflected shocks are
recorded by seismographs, similar to
those used in recording natural earth-
quakes. Extremely accurate measure-
ments of the time taken for the re-
flected shocks to return to the surface
allow the worker to calculate the
depths of various levels of rock, Pro-
fessor Kellum declared.
The seismic method, he added, is
based on the fact that rock materials
vary in intensity. Hard, dense, com-
pact rocks transmit shock waves with
greater speed than softer, less firmly
consolidated rocks. Transformed in-
to electrical impulses and greatly am-
plified, the shocks are recorded with
a time scale by photography. Com-
parison of shock records with the
time scale gives the scientist the
necessary information to calculate
the depth of each rock formation.
Professor Kellum who has been on
eave for a year, emphasizes the fact
that this exploration does not claim
to determine the presence or absence
of petroleum. The object of the ex-
pedition, he says, is to determine
whether the geological conditions are
favorable for the formation and ac-
cumulation of petroleum, and to
find the location of structural traps
which would cause the oil to accu-
mulate, if present.
