Hess Episode
Is Nazi Ruse,
SegerClaims
Revolution Is Impossible
Now, Former German
ReichstagDelegate Says
Asserting that there is no chance
of a revolution in Germany under
present circumstances, Gerhart Seger
former member of the German Reich-
stag, yesterday told a large audience
in the Rackham Auditorium that he
believed the flight of Rudolf Hess
was another fantastic Nazi ruse.
Claiming that Hess was essentially
a Hitler "yes" man, Seger main-
tained that he was sent in order to
upset English morale. Seger added
that the continued safety from im-
prisonment of Hess's wifel and child
indicates that the flight was sanc,
tioned..
Seger also explained in detail the
aspects of the present European sit-
uation which affect America, saying
that the United States should give
maximum material aid to Britain,
but that there was no need for an
Amnerican expeditionary force, either
now or later.
When asked by a member of the
audience if convoys would mean a
German declaration of war, Seger re-
plied that the Nazis would never de-
clare war, but would fight when and
where they pleased, regardless of
American action.

Artifcial Creation Of Speech
To Be Demonstrated By Robot

DAILY OFFICIAL BULLETIN

By CHARLES THATCHER
No third degree methods will be in
evidence at 8 p.m. today in Hill Audi-
torium when Pedro the Voder, Bell
Telephone's 'miraculous mechanical
voice, is made to speak, for Pedro's
conversivemtendencies depend only on
his being well-supplied with electric-
ity.
Ask him a question, request a song,
a poem, an imitation-anything. Pe-
dro will respond immediately. He
speaks, sings, recites, and can pro-
duce amazingly accurate imitations
of everything from a locomotive
whistling far a crossing to a wood-
pecker tapping to its mate!

of Bell Telephone and under the

Challis To Give
Concert Today
Carillon Recital To Include
18th Century Music
John Challis, an Ypsilanti harpsi-
chord maker, will be guest carillon-
neur at the regular 7:15 p.m. carillon
concert today from the Burton Me-
morial Tower.
His recital, which will feature
eighteenth century music, will open
with two selections from the Fitzwil-
liam Virginal Book, John Bull's "Pre-
lude," and G. Farnabys "A Toye."
Handel will be represented by two
pieces from his "Compositions for a
Musical Clock," the air and the son-
ata, while Bach's "Little Prelude"
and a Minuet of his will also be
played,
The French school will be'heard in
the "Les Coucous Benevoles" and in
the "Andante" of Francois Couperin;
also, the popular "Tambourin" of the
favorite court composer, Rameau.
Prof. Percival Price and Mr. Chal-
lis will conclude the program with the
"Second Rhapsody for Two Carillon-
neurs" of Professor Price.
Rifle Team Reelects
Captain Verne Kennedy,
Verne C. Kennedy, '42E, was re-
elected captain of the University
ROTC Rifle Team and Arthur G.
Volz, '43, became its business man-
ager in an election held yesterday.
Other reorganization plans an-
nounced at the meeting were that
nextyeartthe freshmen trying out
for the team would be placed in a
separate squad, similar to varsity
sports arrangements, and that serv-
ice bars would be awarded all rifle-
men next year, regardless of whether
they won team sweaters and letters
or not.

department, Pedro will assist Dr. J. O.
Perrine, of American Telephone and
Telegraph, in his lecture-demonstra-
tion, "The Artificial Creation of
Speech."l
Given ample opportunity to prove
his ability at both the New York and
the San Francisco World's Fairs, Pe-t
dro came through in fine style, re-
turning such things as "hasenpfeffer"
or "Comment allez-vous" to his ques-
tioners with perfect ease.
Controlled by a 13-key, organ-like
keyboard, a pitch control knob, a
volume regulator and a foot pedal to
control inflection, Pedro's only bond
to the realm of the mechanical is his
slight electrical accent.
Other equally interesting phases of
telephone work which might be tak-
en up by Dr. Perrine are the "in-
version" of speech for trans-oceanic
transmission and the methods used
for transmitting many voices over
one wire simultaneously.
Through Medium
Through the medium of Pedro's
speech, Dr. Perrine will demonstrate
such things as the mechanical differ-
ence between such words as "church"
and "shirts," or will explain why the
talk of the Chinese sounds different
than that of the English.
Quite modest for all his accomplish-
ments, Pedro is becoming quite prom-
inent in the field of telephone trans-
mission and speech work because of
his possibilities as a speech creator
and transmitter. It is hoped that he
may be helpful in finding a way to
give speech to those born dumb.
