history department of the University
of Illinois will present the third in
a series of Hillel Forum lectures at
8:15 p.m. tomorrow in the main ball-

His address, entitled "They Would-

with various pathological individuals
in the nation at the present time,
some of the problems they create
and some solutions to these problems.

'Annual Contest Is Slated
For Late In March
The annual competition for the
Bronson-ThoLas Prize in German, of
x$35 will take place late this month,
according to Professor Henry W.
Nordmeyer of the German depart-

Gold Moved To Kentucky
WASHINGTON, Feb. 28-(A')--Se-

gold from New York to Fort Knox
was completed today, it was learned

vault now holds $14,000,000,000 of the
yellow metal-the largest treasure
ever assembled under one roof.

on the question: "Do you think it ad-
visable to graduate the members of
the Class of '42E next February?"
Opinions were almost evenly divid-
ed with a slight majority of the facul-
ty opposed to such a change.
Here are some of the typical ans-
Prof. Benjamin F. Bailey of the
electrical engineering department: I
think it would be a big mistake to
make so radical a change in our nor-
mal procedure. The country does
and will need engineers, but it would
not be advisable to send unqualified
men into posts requiring trained,
competent technicians.

of the aeronautical engineering de-a

new kind of easily operated, low-cost
helicopter would make flying prac-I

than ever before.

Though many attempts have been
made to overcome the third problem
of tor(uue, or the tendency of the
body to spin in the opposite direction
from that of the revolving blades,
Professor Stalker was the first to con-
ceive the idea of rotating the blades
by low-speed jets, an answer that
