Coast Guard Rescues Victims In Susquehanna River Flood

In a recent article on the radio
revolution awaited in frequency mod-
ulation, it was announced through
other sources that station W8XWJ is
"the only exponent in Detroit" of
"this ultra-high frequency type of
broadcasting." As a result, the radio
studios in town have been deluged
with requests for receiving sets for
these "frequency modulation" broad-
casts from the station,
Wiesner Interviewed
Mr. Jerome Wiesner, Chief Radio
Technician for Broadcasting Servce,
revealed in an interview yesterday
I that there are no frequency modulat-
ed stations in this section of the
country. Since Milwaukee has the
closest station operating on frequen-
cy modulation, people in this vicin-
ity could not receive such broadcasts
even if they possessed the sets. Mr.
Wiesner stated that W8XWJ broad-
casts with amplitude modulation, on
which high frequencies appear with
slight advantage. While the station
operates on high frequency, it is far
from being frequency modulated and
certainly could not be received with
frequency modulation sets.
In its finished form, frequency
modulation will certainly revolution-
ize radio, eliminating natural static
and man-made electrical disturban-
ces. The system will permit trans-
mission of programs with virtually no
distortion, the fidelity limited only
by the quality of loud speakers. De-
vised by Major E. H. Armstrong, fre-
quency modulation was achieved after
a quarter century of study and ex-
perimentation, and finally presented
as accomplished fact before Institute
s of Radio Engineers Nov. 6, 1935. How-
r ever, it will probably be at least 10
years before the systemlis perfected
-for practical realization.

seven persons perished in the Pennsylvania floods and approximately 5,000 were homeless at Wilkes-Barre.

Distracted St. Bernard
Evicts French Class
When dog annoys man it's not
news, but when man annoys dog!
Students in Prof. Antoine J. Jo-
bin's French 71 class at 8 a.m. yes-
terday became conscious the first
few minutes of the hour of a con-
tinuous thumping in the room. Their
droning voices translating Daudet's
"La Derniere Classe," however, were
twice as disturbing to the thumper,
a huge St. Bernard who finally wig-
gled out from under a seat and
shook himself in the aisle.
In their surprise the students
stopped reciting. The St. Bernard
dove back under the seats. The classj
continued. The dog reappeared,
waded into benches and student legs
vigorously. When shown the door
he turned his head. It was a dead-

Bureau Of Industrial Relations
HoldingSeries Of Roundtables

The current series of roundtable
conferences on "Employe Acceptance
of Methods Development and Pro-
duction Stanards" being held under
the sponsorship of the Bureau of In-
dustrial Relations is brining represen-
tatives of leading industrial com-
panies to the Campus, Director John
W. Riegel said yesterday.
This series deals specifically with
the problems of technological change
and 'the determination of what con-
stitutes a fair day's work, Professor
Riegel pointed out, subjects of intense
interest to all people engaged in in-
dustrial enterprise. Included in the
objects of the study are the cutting of
costs, fatigue and hazards, as well as
the improvement of the quality of
products, he added.
The basic work in preparation for

the roundtables consisted of one-
day visits to 20 selected companies
fo rthe purpose of identifying thei
methods of determining production
standardsand of bringing about tech-
nological changes with due regard to
employe attitudes and interests, Pro-
fessor Riegel explained. Questions
regarding these procedures were or-
ganized into an outline which is fol-
lowed by the executives who partici-
pate in the discussions.
The first roundtable of the current
series was attended by 17 representa-
tives of 10 invited firms, he continued
and occupied two full days, Feb. 29
and March 1. This roundtable, fol-
lowing the policy of past years, Pro-
fessor Riegel explained, was repre-
sentative of the chemical and allied
industries, the next being planned
for firms in the metal industry, April
25 and 26. In this way, he comment-
ed, a common viewpoint of the con-
ferees at each roundtable is assurec
through the similarity of their tech-
nical backgrounds.
Some indication of the immediate
value of the work done through the
roundtables, Professor Riegel said,
can be gained from the fact that sev-
eral of the companies represented at
the first conference have indicatec
their intention to hold similar round-
tables on the same subjects withir
their own organizations.

The University of Pittsburgh's
student government is a confused
hodge-podge of eleven separate or-
ganizations of students with little
real power, all closely limited and
supervised by the University's ad-
ministration, according to Robert C.
Adams, editor of The Pitt News, con-
tacted in the current nation-wide
survey on student government.
Even service groups such as the
Interfraternity Council, which exer-
cise real authority and make their
own rules and regulations here, are
there subservient almost entirely to
the administration, Adams pointed
out. "The Interfraternity Council
does little more than serve as a
clearing house for rushing regula-
tions. The actual governing of fra-

ternities is done through the Men's
Fraternity Committee, composed of
administration and faculty members,
and several fraternity men."
Student activities in the broad
sense are not openly managed by
the administration, Adams said, but
it does get all the supervision it
seems to want by placing faculty
members on all the committees of
the Student-Faculuty Association, an
all-campus group including almost
all of the important organizations
in the school.
In recent years, Adams explained,
the only noticeable actions of student
government groups which stimulated
administrative action were limited
to building and grounds improve-
ments. Regular reminders of the
SFA presidents and The Pitt News
about various needs have some ef-
fect on the future planning, he ad-
mitted, but as for immediate results
-the record is practically nil. Stu-
dent government groups just don't
concern themselves much with im-
portant University policies, Adams
said, they know that what they have
to say carries very little weight with
the administration.
Pointing out what he believed to
be the inherent weakness in the
studuent government system, Adams
said the administration of the acti-
vity budget was to blame, and warned
that administration controlled fi-
nances invariably undermine any at-
tempt at student democracy.
