*Will Lecture
On Wednesday
Karl Shapiro, American poet,
will lecture on "Meter and Mean-
ing" at 4:15 p.m. Wednesday in
Kellogg Auditorium.
One of the best known of the
younger poets, Shapiro has pub-
lished several volumes of verse.
among them, "Person, Place and
Thing," "V-Letter" and "Essay on
Rime." He is now preparing an-
other volume for publication.
Shapiro served with the Army
in the Pacific theatre and wrote
"Essay on Rime" overseas. It
treats the problems affecting the
purposes of modern poetry and
attempts to trace the causes of
obscurity in much of modern
verse. Greater clarity in modern
poetry should make it popular
with a wider public, he says.
Shapiro will also read from some
of his own poems. The lecture is
snonsored by the English Depart-
Choir To S1ng
Operatic Arias
A group of songs from "Marriage
of Nanette," comic opera by Pet-
ersor-Curtis, will be presented on
the program of the Ann Arbor
High School a capella choir at 8
p.m. today in the Union Ballroom.
Presented as part of the Inter-
national Center Sunday evening
series, the program will include
"O, Lord, .We Worship Thee," by
Bach-Morgan; "Go, Song of
Mine," by Barton; "Like the Fall-
ing of a Star," by Battishill-Mid-
dleton; and "Nina," Russian folk
song arranged by Krone.
Konrad Matthaei, pianist, will
perform "Nocturne, Op. 9, No. 2,"
by Scriabine; "Capriccio, Op. 76,
No. 1," by Brahms; and "Ballade,
Op. 47," by Chopin, as part of the

Government economic special-
ists size the situation up roughly
like this:
1. Various large groups of
Americans who buy from each
other got pay boosts which about
balance price gains.
Both factory workers and a
broad group of non-factory work-
ers (such as store help and people
in the petroleum industry) got
about 11 per cent more pay from
V-J Bay through the first round
of pay increases.
Farmers Profited
2. The farmer, who made good
profits throughthe war, has made
out even better since price con-
trols went out.
3. The whole country has sim-
ply moved to a higher price level.
The city worker and the farmer
both pay-but may be able to pay
-each other's higher prices. (La-
bor Department statistics show
that the food bill of the moderate
income family jumped 95 per
cent from 1939 to February, 1947,
but at the same time in all manu-
facturing industries jumped 96.9
per cent.)
Professionals Squeezed
4. A few comparatively small
groups are getting squeezed-some
white collar workers, some higher
paid men in factories, some pro-
fessional people. They can't buy
so much. But their absence in the
stores won't be enough to bring
prices down.
The picture is vague because the
federal government doesn't co-
relate the statistics it gathers. The
Agriculture Department gathersI
them for farmers, the Labor De-
partment for city people, and the
Federal Reserve keeps an eye on
industry and banks.
Much of the price annoyance is
due to small shifts up and down
the living scale which have hap-
pened to various groups of people
because of prices.

Academy of Medieval History at

Study of Heart
Advanced by
New Machine
Medical Instrument
Finds Abnormalities
CHICAGO, April 25-(4)-De-
velopment of a new machine that
records the pumping action of the!
human heart for a detailed study
of any abnormalities was an-
nounced today in the American
Journal of Roentgenology and
Radium Therapy.
The instrument is the electro-
kymograph, or E-K-Y for short.;
Dr. George C. Henny, professor
of medical physics at Temple Uni-
versity Medical School in Phila-
delphia, where the machine was
developed, said it would not dis-
place the electrocardiograph but
augment its work.
He said the E-K-Y gave "dif-
ferent, but very helpful" inform-
ation and added there was every
indication the new instrument
sdon would have "practical value"
in the study of heart disease.
When a patient stands before
an ordinary fluoroscope attached
to the machine, a distinct shadow
of the beating heart is seen. Using,
a photo-electric tube, the E-K-Y
observes the movements of the
edge of the heart shadow, trans-
forming them into changing elec-
tric current. The fluctuations in
electric current are recorded on
a moving strip of paper.
The machine still is undergoing
experimental tests.
Use of an X-ray fluoroscope to
study the heart's pumping action
does not afford the same oppor-
tunity for a detailed study of the
movements, the instrument's de-
velopers claimed.

Work on the Evangelical Lutheran
Synod of Missouri, Ohio and other

resentation in every state and
many foreign countries.
A $3,500,000 centennial offering
will be raised this month, one-
tenth of which will come from the
Michigan district churches, which
support the University Lutheran
Chapel for campus personnel.
From this collection the new
chapel and student center on
Washtenaw will be erected.
