Will Addzress Seminar
Prof. D. M. Matthews of the School
of Forestry and Conservation will
discuss employment in the private
timber and wood-using industries at
the weekly meeting of the seminar on
employment in forestry at 4:30 p.m.
Thursday in Rm. 2039 Natural Sci-
ence Building.
The main objective of this series
of meetings is to give forestry and
pre-forestry students the opportunity
of learning about all the major em-
ploying agencies and outlets in the
field of forestry and conservation.
' Most of the opportunities during
the past ten years have been in the
private employment outlets; however,
the combined public employing agen-
cies absorb a great many forestry-
trained men every year as well. The
Doctor Recognized

Fire Causes Costly
Damage in Home
A fire in the three-floor house at
1430 Washington Heights, owned by
Mr. William J. Felthouser, caused
several thousand dollars worth of
damage yesterday afternoon.
The roof and most of the third
floor were nearly completely burned,
while lower floors and furniture were
partially ruined by water. The fire is
thought to have started in the roof,
near the chimney.

Ground Artillery Not Dated, He Says

-1i

"We will always use the rifle in war-
fare," Col. Miller predicted. "It may
be a machine rifle," he said, "but it
is more likely to be a Garand, semi-
automatic rifle. The 105 millimeter
howitzer will go to the field with the
infantry for some time to come. The
proximity fuse, something new and
terrible to put in this gun, was de-
veloped during this war. This fuse in
a shell causes it to explode whenever
it passes near an object."
We have used projectiles that
break into fragments in all recent
wars, >Col. Miller said. These frag-
ments are traveling at such a high
speed when they are showered on a
group of soldiers that they cut
right through the men they hit. Sol-
diers dig foxholes to protect them-
selves from them.
Time Fuses Not Effective
We used to use time fuses on these
shells, Col. Miller explained, but they
were not so effective, especially
against aircraft. We developed the
proximity fuse so that the shells
would explode when they came near
their target, he said. They were so
effective, he explained, that only four
of the 150 buzz bombs that crossed
the English Channel on the last day
they were sent from the continent
reached London.
Soldiers will continue to fight with
rockets, bazookas and artillery on
wheels as well as with rifles, Col. Mil-
ler said. A 57 millimeter cannon,
which fires two and one-half lb. pro-
jectiles with no recoil, was developed

during this recent war. This revolu-
tionary cannon will fire all types of
shells, including phosphorus, is as
accurate as a Gerand rifle and will
shoot as far as two and one-half
miles. It was used very effectively,
he stated, to destroy tanks in Europe
and Japanese caves on Pacific Is-
lands.-
Airplane Here To Stay
The airplane is here to stay, Col.
Miller said, for planes have greatly
increased the striking distance of ar-
tillery. As long as planes are used in
warfare 40 and 90 millimeter anti-
aircraft gunstwill be maintained on
ships and on the ground.
The 16-inch guns found in each of
the 30 or 40 fortresses along the
coasts of the United States are obso-
lete, Col. Miller reported. They would
destroy battleships, but during wars
ships never land where they are ex-
pected. He advised that these big
guns be replaced by camouflaged
anti-aircraft guns.
