"STUDENTS REPORT:
Gernian Youths Found Open Ijie

i

By LILLIAS WAGNER
Post-war German youth at the
University of Munich is both open-
,mindled and interested, or so two
University students, Bill Sininigea,
'49, and Jerry Wensinger, Grad.,
found during their stay there.
The two left this country on a
group experiment in international
living last June, originally to help
re-build a dormitory in Munich.
However, before they werel
through, Wensinger and Sinnigen
were translating and acting for a
German movie and attending the
University of Munich.
"EVIDENTLY, contrary to pop-
ular belief, the young people were
least affected by Naziism," Sinni-
gen said. 'jA confederation of
Europeain states is a topic of real
interest among German students,
and the old nationalism seems to
be breaking down."
"Of course," Wensinger add-
ed, "they are often bitter. The
first two rows of all classrooms
at the university are 'reserved
for aimputees, since one out of
five is crippled."
The University of Munich itself
was about 95% destroyed, and
lost nearly all of its library. "For
this reason, books for the students
are very rare, and cost about 20
marks apiece -- as bad as $20
would be to an American student,"
Sinnigen said.
"'THERE IS nothing like fra-
ternity life," Wensinger contin-
uied. "Life is very grim; it's de-'
voted primarily to study. Most
of the students livec in private
homes and have transportation
difficulties."
They usc mimeographed sum-
maries of their courses for
studfy, and, due to the fuel
shortage, have no winter term.
"In fart," Sinnige neommented,
"most -of the classrooms have
no roofs or windowpanes and
are so overcrowded that stu-a

IToday marks the 100th bir'thday
anniversary of a University gran-
uate who just missed achieving
the widespread fame of Thomas
Edison in the field of electricity.
Charles F. Brush, who would
~have been 100 years old today,
raduated from the University in
1869 after studying metallurgy,
but electricity caught his fancy
and lie experimented in this field
after returning to his home town
of Cleveland, Ohio.

DURING 'T'lE three years after'
~he started hisi killowatt work, hie
~cntributed three important de-
~velopments in electric arc-light-
~ing, 41l of which rivaled'the genius
~of Edison.
First lie developed a speiat
generator for the unstable char-
acteristics of arc-light.
He also devised a regulator that
kept the arc light's carbons prop"-

erly spaced, solving one of the
basic mechanical problems of the
light.
SINCE ONE generator for each
light proved cumbersome and eN-
pensive, grush successfully pro-
duced a "constant current" system
which automatically adjusted volt-
age output of a dynamo according
to the number of lights being sup-
plied with current.
At first, Brush got cuff to a
fast start, wiij his constant
current system -suitable for arc-
lighting, and was commercially
in wide use in 1878 and remain-
ed popular for many years,
On the other hand, Edison had
slow tedious experience in work-,
ing out problems in his 'constant
potential" system which supplied
current for his new-fangled "in-
candescent bulbs."
DESPITE HIS losing battle with
Edison, Brush is still recognized as
one of the pioneers in the field.
And his work is still evident
in automobiles. The relative
light weight and sligh~t expense
of storage batteries would not
be possible today without his
contribution of the perforated)
grid plate.
He died in his home town in
1929 at the age of 80.
