Sigma Rho Tau's famous "Little
Man" left Ann Arbor last week for
an extended tour in which it will
visit six chapters of the honorary en-
And all of this is very important
to the University members of the
"Stump Speakers' Society" because
this is the first time that the "Little
Man" has left his headquarters in
the West Engineering Building.
The "Little Man" is a statue on a
pedestal which is awarded annually
to the Sigma Rho Tau chapter which
earns the most points in intercollegi-
ate activities. Since its construction
five years ago, Alpha, the local chap-
ter, has retained possession of it.
And so it was decided recently that
Michigan has been holding the tro-
phy long enough and that the time
had come when other chapters
should have a chance to see what it
is like. It is already at the Detroit
Institute of Technology and expects
to travel to Michigan State College,
Wayne University, University of To-
ledo, University of Detroit and then
back to Michigan. Later it will be
taken to the National Convention
where it will be presented to the
chapter winning this year's contest.
Designed back in 1935 by Carleton
W. Angell of the museums staff at
the request of Prof. Robert D. Brack-
ett of, the engineering English de-
partment, the group's adviser, the

Richard G. Schoel, '43E, was in-

Smith, senior faculty adviser of the
fraternity at officer induction serv-
ices held last night in the Union.
Robert G. W. Brown, '42E, vice-

corresponding secretary; Leo Jach-
owski, '41, sergeant-at-arms; and
John Duff, '43E, historian, were the
other officers installed.
Faculty advisers Shirley W. Smith,
vice-president, Prof. Ferdinand N.

chanics department, Prof. Lee O.
Case of the chemistry department,
and Prof. Avard Fairbanks of the
architecture school were present at

STUMP SPEAKER STATUE
trophy was cast that same year by
Mazzolini in Yellow Spring, Ohio.
At the convention five different
speaking contests will be held to de-
cide the winner of the "Little Man."
These include impromptu speeches,
after dinner addresses and project
talks which consist of highly devel-
oped sales talks on some engineering
The other types are exchange
speeches, which are informal talks on
engineering developments, and Hall
of Fame talks, which are eulogistic
addresses in the form of a nominat-
ing speech. The latter usually is de-
signed to praise some noted engineer
and to recommend him for a mythical
Hall of Fame.
"Abe" is the unofficial title of the
"Little Man" at the present time but
the members of the society are far
from satisfied with the name and re-
fuse to let it be known as such. "As
soon as we can get around to it," one
Sigma Rho Tau member said yester-
day, "we'll Rive him a label we can
all be proud of."
Altman Records Perfect
Score Against Cornell
Breaking a three-match winning
streak, the University Rifle Team
lost last week's postal match with
Corne University, 3,637 to 3,585,
Verne C. Kennedy, '42E, captain of
the team, announced yesterday.
Best marksman on the squad this
week was Harry E. Altman, '43E,
who shot a perfect target from the
prone position in addition to lead-
ing in the total score.
Matches are being shot this week
with the University of Wyoming and
the Far Rockaway Rifle Club, Far
Rockaway, N.Y. The results will be
available after the holidays.
Only other team to beat the Mich-
igan squad so far this year was the
University of Maine. Matches have
been won from the University of West
Virginia, City College of New York,
and the Brooklyn Polytchenic Insti-
Following Altman for marksman-
ship on the Michigan team were Ken-
nedy, Wallace J. Wilkie, '43E, Gor-
don A. Stumpf, '41E, and Garland J.
Is Dite Soot
One of nature's rare phenomena,
a comet visible to the naked eye,
will make its appearance within the
next few weeks, Prof. A. D. Maxwell
of the Department of Astronomy
Named Cunningham's Comet for
the Harvard astronomer who dis-
covered it, the comet will be appar-
ent to the unaided eye during the
latter part of December and the be-
ginning of January, Professor Max-
well said. It will appear almost due
west and near the horizon, its tail
extending vertically from the head,
Comments On History
Commenting on the history of the
comet, Professor Maxwell said that
since its orbit is parabolic in shape,
it has never before passed near the
earth and will never return to this
part of the universe. It was dis-
covered on September 5, 1940, at thej
Harvard College Observatory by Le-
land E. Cunningham, but a check
of previous photographic plates made
at that observatory revealed its
presence as early as August 25.
At present the comet is too faint
to be seen without a telescope, Pro-
fessor Maxwell declared. It is now
about twice as far from the sun as
the distance between the earth and
the sun, but on January 16 it will
pass the sun at a distance of ap-
proximately 34 million miles. It will
be nearest the earth on January 10,
the last day it will be visible to the
northern hemisphere, he said. On
that day it will be about 55 million
miles away, a distance not unusually
close for a comet.
Best View Jan. 2
Cunningham's Comet will be seen
at its best on January 2, shortly af-
ter sunset, Professor Maxwell as-
serted. It will appear a short dis-
tance above the horizon, near the
bright star Altair. The tail will be
clearly visible. Unfortunately, he
added, when the comet reaches its
greatest brilliance on January 14, it
will be too close to the sun for favor-
Two other comets are also now
being viewed by the astronomers,
Professor Maxwell announced. Nei-
ther will attain naked-eye brilliance,
but will be visible only through pow-
erful telescopes. Strangely enough,
he declared, all three of the present
crop of comets were discovered with-
in three weeks of each other last fall.

Obstacle To Health
"Perhaps the greatest obstacle in
the way of improving the general
health of the Chinese, is the ignor-
ance of the great masses of the peo-
ple regarding surgical treatment and
hospitalization." Miss Ging Mei
Kang, the first Chinese nurse to spe-
cialize in anaesthesia in the Univer-
sity, pointed out in an interview
"The Chinese peasant," said Miss
Kang, "must be brought to realize
that often pain is not a result of
heat or cold or neglect of neighbor,
but perhaps a symptom of a disease
that demands inTmediate attention.
He must be taught that his local
gods are not punishing him for some
Miss Kang stated that Chinese
physicians know comparatively lit-
tle about modern operative methods
and medical diagnosis. They would
prefer to study in American univer-
sities, but the high tuition rates
makes this impossible. As a con-
sequence, many people are treated
by native doctors who administer
Chinese herbs and drugs, which are
for the most part, ineffective.
"I find that the greatest differ-
ence between American and Chinese
diseases are those caused by nutri-
tional variances," stated Miss Kang.
"Americans suffer from diabetes as
a result of too much sugar and
sweetened foods, while the Chinese
have more kidney trouble or nepli-
roses due to a principle salt diet.
"Although I am very fond of the
American people, I hope to be able
to return home as soon as I have
completedl my course, and plan to
enter China by the Burma Road.
