Army Installs First Collegiate
Ordnance Laboratories Here


With equipment furnished by the
Army Ordnance Department, the first
ordnance gauging and precision meas-
urement laboratory to be established
at any college in the country has
been installed in the East Engineer-
ing Building.
The measuring equipment of the
Department of Metal Processing is
combined with that supplied by the
War Department to make this one
of the most completely equipped lab-
oratories in this section of the coun-
try. A similarhlaboratory is located
at each of the six Army Arsenals,
and others are being established at
strategic points throughout the na-
Basis Of Instruction
The laboratory is used as a basis
of instruction for the Ordnance ca-
dets in the University ROTC, for
Ordnance Reserve Officers during
their summer training, and for in-
struction to University students. It is
also frequently used to render service
to industry in calibrating and check-
Fine To Speak
For Marxism
Laborite Will Converse On
Communistic Beliefs
Fred Fine, secretary of the Michi-
gan Young Communist League, will
speak on the subject, "Trade Unions
and Communism - A Communist
Speaks for Himself" in a lecture spon-
sored by the Karl Marx Society at
8:00 p.m. today in room 302 of the
Fine, 27 years old, has been active
in the labor movement since the age
of 14 and has been a member of both
the AFL and the steel-workers or-
ganizing committee of the CIO.
According to Robert Chapman, '4 ,
president of the Karl Marx Society,
the second half of the title of the
address has been appended because
others are always interpreting what
Communists do and believe.
Banquet Held TomorrowI
By IFC Staff Members
Members of the junior staff of the
Interfraternity Council during the
past year, executive and incoming
senior officers of the Council will be
feted at a banquet to be held at 6:15
p.m. tomorrow in the Union.
The room number will be posted
on the bulletin board.

ing gauges, instruments, and fixtures.
In peace time the activities of the
laboratory are under the administra-
tion of the custodian. Prof. O. W.
Boston, Director of the Department
of Metal Processing. In case of na-
tional emergency it would be under
the direct control of the Detroit
Ordnance District.
Many types of measuring devices
are provided, incuding an eight-inch
capacity, one ten thousandth inch
supermicrometer and various sizes of
inside and outside micrometers, ver-
nier calipers, depth gauges, indica-
tion gauges, dial gauges, a master
cylinder for checking squares, and a
wide assortment of precision plates
and angle irons.
Several standard sets of master
gauge blocks provide accurate basic
sizes for reference. With one of these
sets, 125,000 measurements from
0.1001 to 12 inches can be made, each
with a guaranteed accuracy of two
millionths of an inch per inch.
Devices Available
Standard reference disks, thread
measuring wires, precision balls, and
similar devices are available, all of
which have been calibrated and cer-
tified by the Bureau of Standards.
The latest type of universal meas-
uring machine, provided with meas-
uring pressure control, is available
with which direct of comparative
measurements up to forty-eight in-
ches in length and with an accuracy
within ten millionths of an inch can
be made.
Measuring devices are provided em-
ploying the principle of light-wave in-
terference, whereby measurements
can be made in terms of light waves
to an accuracy of a millionth of an
Projection Machine
A projection machine for measuring
profiles of parts casts a profile of a
gear tooth or screw thread on a
screen at a high magnification. The
shadow, standing out clearly, may
be measured directly or compared
with given standards.
A visitor can see a steel bar five
inches in diameter being bent or
shortened by the slight pressure of
his finger; or he may see a bar,
being measured, start almost immed-
iately to increase in length because
of the heat radiated from his body
as he stands close by. This shows
the necessity for maintaining stan-
dard temperatures in fine measure-
ment work.

"We realize that war brings grief,
heartacle and suffering, particularly
to mothers.
"Therefore, we urge that you, our
duly elected Representatives in The
Congress, as a Mother's Day gift
from the Congress to the Mothers of
this country, immediately adopt Joint
Resolution 62, introduced by Senator
Charles W. Tobey, placing the Con-
gress on record as opposed to the use
of any part of our armed forces for
convoying war or other materials to
nations now at war, as originally pro-
vided under Section 3 of the so-
called 'Lend-Lease' Law."
