PAIE TWO
Vulcans Forge Und

THE MICHIGAN DAILY

TUESDAY, NOVEMBER 8, 1949

By DAVIS CRIPPEN
More than hot air sometimes
blows through the University
steam tunnels which criss-cross in
all directions under campus.
Vulcans, senior honorary engin-
eering society, proved this again
Friday night when they forged
underground to put the finishing
touches on their initiation and
their intiates in the tunnels.
THESE ARTERIES, in addition
to their semi-annual use by Vul-
cans, transport heat from the Uni-
versity heating plant in back of
" 'TB to buildings on all parts of
"campus..
They stretch, as one student
expert succinctly put it, "all
over hell." In less plain words,
buildings all the way from Uni-
versity Hospital to the Union
are served by them.
'The honorary society makes use
of them because of their intense
* heat.
"WE GET THE neophytes all
warmed up outside first with a
* few brisk canters around cam-
pus," one of the Vulcan actives
confided before Friday's ceremon-
es, "and then we take them down
Into the ghastly heat of the tun-
rtnels.".
He barely restrained a fiend-
ish laugh.
Just how hot it really is down
in the underground corridors is a
mdot point. Some Vulcan esti-
mates run as high as 150 de-
=grees F.
* * *
THE GUIDE assigned by Uni-
versity authorities to accompany
the group through was non-com-
mital on the subject.
Claiming in one breath that
it wasn't "too hot" in the tun-
nels, in the next the man admit-
ted that a thermometer placed
in them had blown its top be-
cause of the heat.
But whatever the temperature
it, along with certain maneuvers
devised by the Vulcans, takes its
toll.

completed their' journey from the
slbstation hard by Waterman
Gym to the basement of the Un-
ion they were far from chipper.
One, however, was still able
to muse onthe covering of oil
and bone black which had beei
caked on them.
"We were plastered just like
those English Channel swimmers,"
he murmured. Then, considering
that, he added, "You know, that
was just about the only thing they
didn't make us do down there."
Book eipe
To Colonize
An obscure little book with the
mouth-filling title of Sacrobosco's
"Theory of Spheres," now in the
Clements Library, helped make it
possible for the English to colon-
ize America.
The "Theory of Spheres" was
written in the 13th century by a
Parisian mathenatics professor,
and it was a part of the navigation
literature that prompted discov-
erers such as Columbus and Cabo
to make their voyages to the New
World.
AT THE TIME of its first print-
ing, in 1516, England was fighting
for its existence in the politica
intrigues of Europe.
Her arch-rival was Spain and
that country, by virtue of the
explorations of Columbus and
others under the Spanish flag,
claimed all of the New World as
her own.
Other nations, particularly Eng-
land, were warned that trespass-
ing meant war.
HENRY VIII, then king of Eng-
land, played the game of Euro-
pean intrigue by marrying Ann o
Cleves in order to ally himsel
with the German duchies.
This alliance gave him
strength against Spain, but a
few months after the marriage
British policy veered toward an
alliance with Spain.
So the much-married Henry di-
vorced Ann and married Kather-
ine Howard.
