Urging wearers of eye glasses
with plastic frames to use pre-
caution when lighting cigarets,
Dr. Emory W. Sink, ophthalmolo-
gist at Health Service, explained
that the so-called tortoise shell
rims really have zylonite, a highly
inflamable substance, as their
A short time ago, the physician
said, a woman's glasses caught
fire when she was attempting to
light a cigaret. The flame jumped
to her clothing, producing severe
burns which resulted in her death.
"Under ordinary conditions of
lighting a cigaret with the glasses
well on the face, there seems little
danger, but if for some reason,
such as the slipping of the glasses
or holding the match too close to
the frame, a rapidly burning flame
with explosive sparks may follow"
he pointed out.
Dr. Sink feels that it would be
desirable to use a non-inflamma-
tory base for the making of
frames. However, he is not at-
tempting to discourage the wear-
ing of plastic frames, but only to
offer a warning to careless

sort cannot be done in campus lab-
oratories. They will involve the con-
struction of equipment used on actual
airport jobs. Prof. Housel hopes to
obtain such equipment from Army
and Navy surpluses, so that students
will have an opportunity to become
familiar with the maintenance and
operation of the equipment actually
used on construction projects.
Highways And Transport
Prof. Roger L. Morrison of the
Highway Engineering and Transport
Division of the Department of Civil
.Engineering said that his division is
now considering a course in air
transportation. If such a course is
established, operations at the air-
port would be a valuable source of in-
formation for the students taking the
The Department of Mechanical Efl-
gineering looks forward to making use
of the airport in connection with au-
tomobile road tests, Prof. Ransom S.
Hawley, chairman of the Department
of Mechanical Engineering, said. He
hopes to have a modern test cell on
tle field for experimental work on
Other schools of the University are
interested in the airport too. "It
might well serve as a laboratory for
business administration students as
well as engineers," Dr. Herbert F. Tag-
gert, of the Schoo! o Business Ad-
ministration, commented. "With the
cooperation of the airlines, students,
especially advanced ones, could do re-
search work in the fields of manage-
ment, accounting and public rela-
tions." He explained that there is a
definite demand from returning air
corps veterans for experience in the
business aspects of operating air-
planes or airports.
According to Dean Samuel T. Dana,
the School of Forestry and con-
servation, in cooperation with the
Department of Aeronautical Engi-
neering, would use planes to photo-
graph forest areas. These photo-
graphs would be used to study land
uses and classifications, to identify
forest types and to estimate amounts
of timber on the ground. This method
of timber estimation is a' new devel-
opment which shows great promise,
Dean Dana said.
