Mendelssohn Theatre last night.
The structure and function of the
University's 100 ton cyclotron were
presented in the opening talk by Prof.
H. R. Crane of the physics depart-
ment. Professor Crane pointed par-'
ticularly to its use as a tool to pry
the inner mysteries of nuclear physics
and in producing artificially radio-
active substances.
Prof. Ralph A. Sawyer, of the phys-
ics department continued with a dis-
cussion of the work accomplished by
himself and Prof. H. B. Vincent in
the development of high speed meth-
ods of quantitative spectral analysis
of iron and steel.
Prof. Ernest F. Barker of the
physics department then outlined the
research carried out here in the field
of infra-red spectroscopy. Especially
helpful in this work are the diffrac-
tion gratings produced by the ruling
machine developed here.
Turning to the field of astronomy,
Prof. Robley C. Williams of the
astronomybdepartment described his
method of applying aluminum coat-
ing to mirrors. This process, which

of the University's McMath-Hulbert
Observatory on Lake Angelus, con-
cluded the series with a discussion
and motion pictures of the storms
and other phenomena on the sun's
surface as studied at the Lake Ange-
lus observatory. Shown in the
astronomical movies were solar cy-
clones, whirling masses of atomic gas
as high as 150 thousand miles above
the sun's surface.

Savage, Edward Zahn, George Camp

the same bank, identified the deposit
slips from which Gibb had deducted

Television Set To Be Displayed
Tomorrow At Hill Auditorium


Four tons of delicate scientific
equipment which arrived here yes-
terday heralded the Ann Arbor pre-
view of modern television.
Consigned to the special public
denonstration to be given at 8:15
'p.m. tomorrow in' Hill Auditorium,
the tangle of tubes, cameras and re-
ceivers is being uncrated and set up
in Hill Auditorium under the super-
'vision of Harold J. Markley and Wal-
ter L. Lawrence, service engineers
from the R.C.A. television labora-
Extremely essential in the success-
ful transmission of television is the
full illumination of "the subject. For
this purpose, batteries of floodlights
of the type used in the making of
motion pictures are being set up in
Hill Auditorium. Under the intense
illumination provided by these flood-
lights, the iconoscope -or picture-
camera is able to pick out the details

of the image and transmit the picture
to the receiving sets.
Since television utilizes an ex-
tremely wide band of broadcast fre-
quencies, about four times as wide as
the whole broadcast band, the light-
carrying electric impulses cannot be
effectively transmitted over ordinary
wire. For this purpose, special coax-
ial-type cables have been shipped
here to carry the image impulses
between camera, syncronizing unit
and receivers.
The electric "eye" of the camera
is a ladle-shaped glass tube about
two feet long. Within this tube is,
a flat screen about four by six inches
in size on which, the sensitizing ele-
ments are impregnated. It is on this
senstive screen that the light image
focused there by the camera is con-
verted into electrical impulses. These
impulses aire then amplified and
transmitted to the receivers.
