The telephoto lens caught Speaker William Bankhead in this dramatic
pose as he addressed the House of Representatives from the rostrum on
the day that the 76th Congress convened. Bankhea4i was reelected as1
speaker. A resounding cheer arose when he took his place on the dias.

University of Toronto, explorer and
a member of Captain Scott's Antarc-
tic expedition in 1910.
Professor Hobbs declared that
Weddell's account .of his trip in 1823
by sailing vessel through open wa-
ter to a latitude of 74 degrees, 15 min-
utes, was fictitious. This alleged
route goes through the worst ice
pack in the world which has baffled#
every explorer since, he said.
Recalling the Scott trip as evidence
that notable shifts occur ia the ice
fields, changing conditions of ex-
ploration greatly from year to year,
Professor Taylor asserted that it was
possible for Weddell to get through.
The Scott party struggled for weeks
to get through an ice pack which
was later traversed by another party
in a day or two, he said.
The perpetual natureof the ice
pack was declared by Professor
Hobbs, in answer to this, to, be the
best evidence. No explorer ever
failed to get through Scott's route
although they encountered varying
degrees of difficulty. But no explor-
er has ever penetrated the Weddell
route, even by power boat, he stated.

lated substances the distances be-
tween bonded atoms change in a reg-
ular way with changes in chemical.
Molecules of the common cleaning
fluid Carbono (carbon tetrachloride),
for instance, are composed of one
carbon and four chlorine atoms.
J Study of this structure has lead to
the information that the carbon atom
I is surrounded by the chlorines in the
form of a regular tetrahedron. The
particular behavior characteristics of
carbon tetrachloride, Professor Brock-
way believes, are directly related to
the distances between the carbon and
chlorine atoms.
The task facing Professor Brock-
way and other scientists at present
is to obtain the chemical bond'
lengths for a large number of sub-
stances in order that these lengths
can be correlated with lehavior. The
primary interest in this study lies in
determining the composition and pro-
perties of matter, but Professor Brock-
way admits that ultimately the .re-
sults will beimportant to industry. He
foresees that with a knowledge of the
relations between constitution and
chemical reactivity, a desired set of
chemical properties may be obtained
simply by choosing the molecules hav-
ing the appropriate structure. A
chemical substance could be "tailor
Measuring bond lengths is w tick-
lish matter, however, a matter of bil-
lionths of an inch: Professor Brock-
way has an adding machine always
within reach to rescue him from the
mazes of multi-numbered fractions
with which he must deal.
His method of measurement is
known as electron diffraction. To ac-

That the schools must be the safe-
gifards of the democratic ideals of
freedom is affirmed by Dean James
B. Edmonson of the education school,
iAi an editorial appearing in the cur-
rent issue of the School of Educa-
tion Bulletin.
"It is not unlikely that today we
might be deprived of much of our
American heritage of freedom be-
fore many of us realize it," Professor
Edmonson says. "It is probable that
democracy, with its emphasis on
freedom, is on the retreat in the
world today."'
World leaders face a serious di-
lemma, the editorial states, because
they must choose between dissen-
sion, delay and inefficiency under
completely popular rule, and curb-

ing of freedom and individual initia-
tive under dictatorship.
"The only way out," Professor Ed-
monson says, "is to educate the peo-
ple to rule wisely and efficiently.
Consequently, the key institutions
needed to preserve democracy are its
educational institutions."
The article makes clear the dif-
ference between freedom and mere
license, which is described as an un.
wise use of freedom, and states that
"the rich and the poor, the bright
and the slow, the native sons and the
foreign-born . . , must be trained to
love freedom and to use freedom
wisely. The schools should be cease-
less guardians and creators of that
vigilance which alone can keep us
a free people."
