are strictly in the realm of specula-
tion," Prof. Maxwell declared.
Definite Meaning
"It does, however, have a definite
astronomical meaning. This, as was
pointed out before, is in respect to
measurement of distances. Radar
does not hold the key to the secrets
of the universe, that is, to the exis-
tence or absence of life on related ce-
lestial bodies."
In fact, Prof. Maxwell pointed out,
it is doubtful whether any form of
life, as we now conceive it, does exist
on any other planet than ours. Of all
the heavenly bodies known to man,
some are either as yeunsplidified
and existing as liquid masses, or not
yet sufficiently cool to permit life
Rare Atmospheres
Others have atmospheres too rare
to support life, or are too small tC
exert sufficient gravitational pull tc
keep objects on their surfaces, h
said. Even on Mars or Venus, abou
which most speculation centers, th(
existence of life is doubtful. Mars' at-
mosphere is too rarified, while that o
Venus is too dense.
Classifying all talk of inter-plae-
tary travel and communication as
"Buck Rogerish," Prof. Maxwell ad-
vised that everyone try to maintain
a balance between "scientific fact
and romantic speculation."

The presentation of "There's Room
for All" will mark the 38th anniver-
sary of Junior Girls Play, which is
now a campus tradition and the
highlight of Junior women's activi-
The first JGPlay was performed in
1904 and became an annual event un-
til the first three years of the war,
when it was discontinued.
"Jabberwocky," presented by the
women of the class of '45, revived the
old tradition, and lastyear's play
"Take It From There" confirmed the
decision that JGPlay was really bacl
to stay.

The group has received letters and

The Bureau, Dr. Purdom said, has
already received requests for student
help from camps and resorts. Ap-
'roximately 500 letters, pointing out

Although many students express a

The owners of a Texas dude ranch,

Activities Poll I
To Determinne
Sota N eeds
Ballots for the Alpha Phi Omega
student activities poll, an attempt to
determine students' social prefer-
ences, will be distributed to dormi-
tories, coops, fraternities and sorori-
ties tomorrow and Tuesday.
By giving the student body a
chance to express its opinions on pro-
posed and existing campus activities,
the service fraternity hopes to obtain
a reliable index of student attitudes
towards campus functions. The sev-
enteen questions on the campus-wide
poll are intended to reveal informa-
tion which will be helpful to Univer-
sity organizations and committees in
planning student activities.
Favorable response to the question
of whether or not students would like
to have a carnival, William De Grace,
who is in charge of the project,
pointed out, might prompt an organi-
zation to sponsor one. An organized
cheering section for basketball,
hockey and other sports might be
started if students indicate that they
would like to have it.
The ballots will be collected on the
diagonal and at the engineering arch
A sample ballot will be published in
The Daily and may be -used by stu-
dents in place of the regular form.
