Equipment At Morris Hall
Prints News And Pictures
Sent From Cincinnati
By ETHEL NORBERG
Reception of newspapers transmit-
ted by radio waves is being demon-
strated this week at Morris Hall.
News and pictures are broadcast
at 2 a.m. nightly from Cincinnati, the
center of experiments, in much the
same manner as radio programs and
.are received by facsimile equipment
at Morris Hall and other places.
Demonstration printing at Morris
Hall, however, is made from phono-
graph records because of the lateness
of transmission.
To transmit the pictures and print-
ing, a special device is used in place
of the microphone to "scan" the ma-
terial. News and pictures are fed' in-
to the machine on a narrow strip of
paper and are scanned by a photo
electrical cell which moves rapidly
back and forth across the page a line
Sweden Topic
Of Ulrey Talk
Cooperative - Government
Relations Stressed
Cooperatives in Sweden have
achieved favorable relationships with
the state, private business, the far-
mer and the laborer, Prof. Orion Ul-
rey of Michigan State College said
last night in his talk, "Cooperatives
in the Scandinavian Countries," the:
sixth in a series of eight lectures
comprising, the Extension Service
course on "Contemporary Problems
and the Cooperative Movement." V
Political democracy, Professor Ul-
rey said, has been aided by the eco-
nomic democracy fostered by the co-
operative movement. The cooperatives
have demanded little support from'
the state, but have been of great
assistance to the state through the
extension of state socialism.
So successful have the cooperatives
been in improving their relations with
private business, Professor Ulrey ob-
served, that business men now ex-
press themselves in favor of the
cooperative aims.
Consul Hits Franco
For Prejudice Driye
(Continued from Page 1)
have their eternal gratitude, Musso-
lini and Hitler will have bases in Reb-
el Spain, the Consul said, even if some
Italian and German troops are with-
drawn.
The recognition of Franco's gov-
ernment by France and England will
make it difficult for the United States
to do otherwise eventually, Senor
Bartolome said, although this coun-
try will probably ask for assurances;
from Franco that there will be no re-;
prisals against Loyalist leaders, as
well as demand respect for Ameri-
can property rights in Spain.
The "triumph" of the Insurgents,
who will be faced with overt and
underground resistence from the Loy-
alists, Bartolome said, is a temporary
victory for the parasites of Spain, the
clerical hierarchy, the military caste
and large industrialists.
Vatican To Broadcast
VATICAN CITY, Feb. 28-()-The
Vatican Radio Station will broadcast
four times daily starting Thursday
on progress in balloting to choose a
new Pope.
The conclave is expected to vote
four times a day-at 9:30 and 1
each morning, and 4 and 5:30 each
afternoon.

at a time. An electrical voltage
whose strength is proportional to the
darkness of the dot is produced and
these dots go out over the air.
The receiving set can be connected
to almost any type 'of radio in the
home. Printing is done by a swing-
ing arm synchronized with the move-
ment of the electric eye of the trans-
mitter. As the stylus at the tip of
the moving arms sweeps over a roll
of paper coated with zinc oxide a
small electrical impulse oxidizes each
dot transmitted by the broadcasting
station in its proper sequence just
as the photo electric eye of the trans-
mitter sees it. The series of dots ap-
pear in varying shades of black mak-
ing a similar picture to that which
appeared on the original copy.
Almost anything that can be print-
ed on a printing press can be trans-
mitted by means of facsimile equip-
ment. Reproduction of photographs,
printed matter, weather maps, weath-
er reports, flash news, news items and
line drawing cartoons have already
been sent over the radio waves. It is
not expected to directly compete with
newspapers, however, when it is fully
developed, but will serve for trans-
mitting directly to the home flash
news, leaving the more detailed ma-
terial to be supplied by newspapers
and periodicals.
Contest Will Test Skill
Of Amateur Ad Writers
To the student who can draw up
the best advertisement for Dr. Gra-
bow pipes, a prize set of pipes valued
at $10 will be awarded, it was an-
nounced yesterday. Robert D. Mit-
chell, managing editor of The Daily,
and Philip W. Buchen, Daily busi-
ness manager, and John Mitchell,
Gargoyle business manager, will serve
as judges.
Contest rules demand sincerity and
originality with the entry, which must
fit into the same space as the adver-
tisement announcing the competition
in today's paper, to exclude illustra-
tions.
London Students
Hear Dumond
Conducts Lecture Series
At University College
Prof. Dwight L. Dumond of the
history department is conducting a
series of eight public lectures at Uni-
versity College, London, on "Anti-
Slavery Origins of the Civil War in
the United States."
In the first lecture, Feb. 13, Pro-
fessor Dumond spoke on "The Un-
finished Task of the Founding Fath-
ers," discussing the confusion of in-
terests and ideas that remained in
racial adjustment, and the aims and
accomplishments of the American
Colonization /Society. The Rt. Hon
Lord Stamp was chairman of the
lecture.
Professor Dumond traced, in his
subsequent lectures, the rise of the
anti-slavery movement and its con-
flict with the race prejudice of the
North, slavery, the Constitution and
the - arguments with which the aboli-
tionists fought slavery.
The sixth lecture, "The Liberty
Party," to be given March 2, will de-
scribe the transition of the abolition-
ists from "moral suasion" to political
action. Professor Dumond will discuss
in his lecture, "The Spirit of the
Great Valley: Northwest vs. South-
west," March 6, the principles of the
leaders of the anti-slavery movement.
The final lecture of the series, "The
Secession Impulse," to be given March
9, will survey the various events lead-
ing up to secession. Professor Du-
mond will return to Ann Arbor late
in March.

Angell Speaks Tonight
Prof. Robert Angell, acting chair-'
man of the sociology department, will
speak on his recent experiences in
Europe at 6 p.m. tonight at a dinner-
meeting of Alpha Kappa Delta, hon-
orary sociology fraternity, to be held
at the home of Prof. A. E. Wood.

Public health in the United States
has advanced more during the last
two years than at any previous pe-
riod, according to the recently issued
report of Surgeon-General Thomas
Parran, but the assignment ahead for
local and federal health services is
still unlimited. Lack of proper hos-
pital facilities is especially serious,
the report showed, in the Southern
parts of the country.
The major concern, Dr. Parran be-
lieves, is with the "50,000,000 people
in the United States, the lower ec-
onomic third of our population-
who are unable to provide themselves1
with proper medical care during se-
rious illness."
On the bright side of the general

American health "statement,"the re-
port showed that the death rate han
fallen from 11.3 a thousand in 1936
to 10.8 in 1938. Tuberculosis, ty-
phoid, scarlet fever and other com-
mon diseases have also decceased
both in the number of cases report-
ed and in fatalities.
The report stressed the enactment
by Congress of the Venereal Disease
Control Act as the most important
issue in the current federal health
campaign. In connection with this
act, it advocated raising the appro-
priation for the control of venereal
diseases from the present figure, $3,-
000,000, to $5,000,000 annually.
