UP IN THE CLOUDS:
Supersonic Wind Tunnel
Simulates Flight Conditions
. By DORIS WEST
"Tests on tiny models of airplane
components in the proposed Univer-
sity of Michigan supersonic wind tun-
nel will simulate conditions in flight
up to speeds of around 3,000 miles
per hour," Prof. Arnold M. Kuethe
of the Department of Aeronautical
Engineering said yesterday.
"Research in this high range of
mach numbers (the ratio of
flight speed to the speed of sound)
is applicable to projectiles and to
pilotless aircraft," Prof. Kuthe
said. "For ordinary aircraft the
upper limit of speed has not yet
been defined, so any work at these
high mach numbers will provide
data for the design. of airplanes
which will push further and fur-
ther into the high speed region,"
he pointed out.
"The testing section of the tunnel
we plan to build at the airfield the
University is negotiating to obtain
will be around ten inches square,"
Prof.bKuethesaid. Because of the
tremendous power needed to conduct
tests at such high speeds, the size of
the testing section in supersonic wind
tunnels is small compared to the test-
Of Fleet Danger
By The Associated Press
WASHINGTON, Jan. 10-Congres-
sional investigators learned today
that Admiral Husband E. Kimmel
told the Roberts Commission four
years ago the Washington adminis-
tration insisted on keeping the fleet
in Pearl Harbor and he had the
choice of agreeing or quitting as its
The Admiral's testimony at pre-
vious secret inquiries, furnished to
members of the Senate-House com-
mittee today, disclosed that on Dec.
27, 1941, in Honolulu, Kimmel told
the group headed by Owen J. Roberts,
then associate justice of the Supreme
"I knew that the Navy department
and the administration in Washing-
ton insisted on keeping the fleet out
here. I knew of the vulnerability of
the fleet here. I thought it was ap-
preciated in the Navy department as
well as by me, but it was one of the
things I felt was beyond my power

not stay and to get another comman-
der-in-chief, or to remain. Natur-
ally, I wish I had taken the other
course at the present time, but I did
ing section of an ordinary wind tun-
nel. The tank of the proposed wind
tunnel may be 15 feet in diameter
and 70 feet long, Prof. Kuethe esti-
mated. For economic reasons, it will
be of the intermittent type.
"In the investigation of high
speed aircraft, we do not deal di-
rectly with the speed, but with the
ratio of the speed to the speed of
sound," Prof. Kuethe said. "In a
supersonic wind tunnel we want to
be able to vary mach numbers
from one to four. Since the speed
of sound under ordinary atmos-
pheric conditions isnabout T75
miles per hour, tests at a mach
number of four would simulate
flight conditions at four multi-
plied by 750, or 3,000 miles per
The proposed wind tunnel will
combine the advantages of two differ-
ent types of supersonic wind tunnels.
The model to be tested is mounted in
the tube, which is so designed that
air rushes through it into the tank
at the required speed. To accomplish
this, a large tank is evacuated and
then connected to the atmosphere
through a tube. Air comes in when
the valve in the pipe is opened. This
method provides a constant air flow
which will last from 20 seconds to a
minute. The tank can be re-evacu-
ated after each experiment, and is
then ready for another test.
The tank will be strong enough
so that, instead of evacuating it,
the air could be compressed and
released through a nozzle. As each
arrangement has its particular ad-
vantages for specific tests, it is pro-
posed to make the new apparatus
flexible enough to permit both
types of operation.
Another type of supersonic wind
tunnel is built like an ordinary wind
tunnel. A compressor is placed in a
doughnut-shaped tube to provide a
continuous circulation of air. Differ-
ent speeds may be obtained by cor-
rectly designing the different sections
of the tube. As it takes a great deal
of power to run, this is an expensive
type df wind tunnel.

GRAND RAPIDS, Jan. 10 - A I
police court jury Thursday found
Santa Claus guilty of disorderly
conduct on Christmas Eve.
Officers testified that Victor
Chicky, 42 years old, was arrested
in St. Nick garb while raising a
disturbance in a jewelry store.
They said he complained about
a glass coffee maker he had bought
there, and when police were called,
he tore off his Santa Claus whis-
kers and challenged them to a
Chicky told the court he had
been playing Santa Claus earlier
in the evening and Judge Edward
G. Burleson let him go to await

In McKay Trial
By The Associated Press
LANSING, Jan. 10-Five persons
charged with conspiring to "unlaw-
fully prejudice" prospective jurors
for the trial of Frank D. McKay of
Grand Rapids today were ordered by
Circuit Judge Louis E. Coash to
show cause Jan. 19 why they should
not be held in contempt of court.
Judge Coash issued the order on
the petition of Victor C. Anderson,
Ingham County prosecutor, just four
days before the liquor graft con-
spiracy trial of the former Republi-
can National Committeeman and
four co-defendants was scheduled to
start in Ingham County Circuit Court.
Anderson also charged the alleged
conspiracy was an attempt to "dis-
credit" special prosecutor Kim Sig-
ler and "prejudice the case of the
prosecution" in the trial.

of age when I was inducted into
the Army. For this reason I am
entitled to only twelve months of
education. Does the new G. I.
Bill affect me in any way?
Answer: Yes, the amendments to the
G. I. Bill remove the age qualifica-

of the number of credit hours
Answer: Whenever a student takes
non-credit courses or when he en-
rolls for what is ordinarily a credit
