Senator Arthur H. Vandenberg (left), of Michigan, dropped around
to the Washington office of Senator Elect Robert A. Taft, of Ohio, and
gave him an affectionate welcome. Both men are considered among the
possibilities for the Republican presidential nomination in 1944.

Fear Ef f ects
The psychological effects of fear7
on the quality of a speaker's voice
will be analyzed today when Prof.
G. E.bDensmore of the speech de-
partment is harnessed to a cathode
ray oscillograph during his weekly
radio class in diction at ; p.m. today.
The oscillograph, constructed in
the engineering school, consists of a
16-inch glass funnel which encloses
apparatus so delicate that when a
person stands near it a stream of
electrons radiating from the currents
of action from his body will cause
a deflection of the instrument. This
is larger than most apparatus of the
same type which is usually about nine:
inches, long.
Voice To Be Recorded1
As Professor Densmore talks into
the microphone today, his voice willf
be recorded. The mechanical "hills"
produced on the record will then be
photographed to put refinement intoJ
the motions. The lines produced on 1
this film will be large and the effects
on voice quality can easily be an-
alyzed.
Physiological measurements of
Professor Densmore's breathing and
pulse changes will also be taken to
correlate them with discoveries made
on the voice record.
Has 'Mike Fright'
Miss Miriam R. Bonner, Grad., is
performing this afternoon's experi-
ment. Already the test has been
tried on a number of students and
Professor Densmore is being tried to-
day because of his frank admittance
of "mike fright" at the beginning1
of every program.
Short speeches have been used at
the University of Wisconsin for the
test, but the longer talk is expected
to give a series of influences which
may be contrasted.
