Engineering Faculty To Present.
S Sam pies Of Science' Program

Demonstration To Include
Special Film Portrayal
Of Accomplishments
Six of the most outstanding scien-
tific and engineering contributions
made by 'members of the faculty will
be presented in a special program
titled "Samples of Science," to be'
given in the Lydia Mendelssohn The-
atre at 8:00 p.m. Wednesday, Nov. 1.
By use of film, slides and actual
demonstrations, the men who have
been responsible for these achieve-
ments, in part or in whole, will them-
selves present their developments.
Dr. H. R. Crane, worker in atom-
smashing and nuclear physics, will
demonstrate properties of radioactive
substances produced in the cyclotron
and other equipment; Dr. Ralph A.
Sawyer will show the Sawyer-Vincent
development of the spectro-chemical
analysis into an indispensable indus-
trial control process; and Dr. Ern-
est F. Barker will deal with the infra-
red,-in which research is carried
further here than anywhere else in
the world. These three men are in
the University physics department.
Dr. Robley C. Williams of the
Astronomy department, will demon-
strate his remarkable vacuum evap-
oration process for coating mirror
surfaces, now used for telescope mir-
rors, range-finders, and the new
"sealed-beam" headlights-the pro-
cess for which he recently received
the Longstreth Medal from the
Franklin Institute. Prof. Jesse oar-
mondroyd of the engineering mechan-


ics department will deal with the
mounting of the 200-inch telescope;
he was responsible for the manu-
facturing design of the mounting. Dr.
Robert R. McMath, of Lake Angelus
Observatory fame, will present films
showing the observatory instruments,
and spectacular solar prominences.
The McMath-Hulbert Observatory is
a world headquarters for solar re-
search. Pictures taken there have
already yielded discoveries of great
astronomical importance.
This unusual program is especially
arranged for the guests of the three-
day conference to be held here Nov.
1-3,-the University of Michigan-
Life Magazine Conference on New
Technologies in Transportation. Ad-
mission is by ticket only.
Faculty members, members of the
Research Club, the Junior Research
Club and the University Club are
invited to attend. They may secure
tickets for members of their families,
at times and places announced in
the Daily Official Bulletin. There
is no charge.
"Samples of Science" is directed
by Prof. A. D. Moore of the Depart-
ment of Electrical Engineering.

"With the growth of the Music
School during the last decade, more
and better students have come to
Michigan for their training," Profes-

desired. Quick to discern the style importance of
this smart collar, Arrow designed the Sussex par-
