Thomas Illustrates Scientific
Basis of Electronic Principles
"No magic" was the key phrase last
night as Dr. Phillips Thomas, re-
search engineer of the Westinghouse
Electric Corporation presented a
striking demonstration of various
principles and applications of elec-
tronics in Rackham Lecture Hall.
Reviewing the research that led
finally to present-day radio, Dr.
Thomas pointed out that the length
of time required to develop radio
might have been shortened consider-
ably if it were not true that "we are
all as lazy mentally as we dare to be."
Too many scientists, he said, are
prone to relax their efforts after they
have achieved only part of the final
The prowess of the photoelectric
cell was visibly demonstrated as Dr.
Thomas regulated his floodlights by
flashlights and lighted matches.
Equally effective was a sensitive con-
trol device developed by Dr. Thomas
himself that responds to the human
With the cooperation of members
of the audience, Dr. Thomas showed
how the human voice is transmitted
on a beam of light. He also showed
how the stroboscope can make a rap-
idly revolving propeller appear to
In a Daily interview, Dr. Thomas
declared that radar devices, now in
use in air and sea travel, will even-
tually be adopted also for land trans-
portation. He said that, to the best
of his knowledge, airplanes involved
in recent crack-ups were either not
equipped with radar or their pilots
had not been instructed in the correct
use of radar.
"We are now working on a method
for modulating radar, much as radio
is modulated," he said, "but so far we
have not been very successful."
Plan To Meet Here
For the first time in seven years,
the annual combined meetings of
the Central States Branch of the
American Anthropological Associa-
tion and the Society for American
Archaeology will be held in Ann Ar-
bor, Prof. Volney H. Jones, of the
Museum of Anthropology, announced
The scientific and business meet-
ings will take place on or about May
16 and 17, Prof. Jones said, and will
probably be held in the Rackham
3uilding. The scientific part of the
meeting will include reports on re-
search, theoretical contributions and
articles of general interest; the busi-
ness meetings will consist of such
matters as election of officers, reso-
lutions, and the treasurer's report.

The University Chapter of the Na-
tional Lawyers Guild at its meeting
yesterday in the Union pledged sup-
port of the FEPC petition formu-
lated by the Detroit chapter of the
Morton Lietson, newly elected
chairman of the chapter, announced
that elections were held for the exe-
cutive offices of the chapter for the
forthcoming term in addition to the
FEPC petition approval.
W. Lester Griffin has been chosen
as vice-chairman, Mary Elizabeth
Spivey, secretary, and Chaire Sher-
man, treasurer, Lietson disclosed.
"We intend to back the Detroit
chapter's petition and to aid in pro-
curing the necessary signatures here
in Washtenaw county," he added.
The FEPC petition, designed to
safeguard the civil rights of minority
groups and to promote fair employ-
ment practices by legislation, will be
circulated by the Guild for a month
after the day following elections in
an effort to secure a majority of sig-
natures. If they receive the requisite
number of signatures,. the petition
automaticalay goes before the state
legislature for a vote. If the bill is
defeated there, it is placed upon the
ballot for the next election; if it
is passed, it becomes law.
Several other states have already
passed such legislation.
The Guild will also sponsor five or
six lectures by nationally known in-
dividuals throughout the school year,

Hilarous to the final curtain, "Both
Your Houses" tells of the honest ef-
forts of a newly elected Representa-
tive at Washington which are direct-
ted towards combating raids on the
National Treasury by the appropria-
tions committee. Facing the boos of
his fellow Congressmen, and as a last
