Faster Than Sound

thieves are merely connoisseurs of
art who appreciate the aesthetic
qualities of the posters," Webber
declared.
BUT POSTERS or no posters,
the show will go on.
Brave, buccaneers will sally forth
on the Pattengill stage for the first
time at 8 p.m. next Wednesday,
when the curtain rises on the pre-
miere of "Pirates."
"Pirates of Penzance" is the
fifth local production by the
University's Gilbert and Sullivan
Society. It is climaxed by a rol-
licking battle between a gang of
peace-loving pirates and a
troupe of frightened London
bobbies.
Best of all, the show's 30 chorus
girls will don pillow-case-like
nightgowns for a sequence in the
middle of the second act.
AND THE USUAL Gilbert and
Sullivan brand of sharply satirical
lyrics set to tuneful music will per-
vade the production.
Tickets are on sale daily in the
lobby of the Administration Build-
ing at 90 cents and $1.20.

"FASTER THAN SOUND"-Howard C. Early, University research
engineer, is shown adjusting a scale model of a new type of wind
tunnel which he designed in collaboration with Prof. Williaw Dow,
of the electrical engineering department. The new wind tunnel is
capable of duplicating low pressure conditions existing 30 miles
above the earth, with a wind flow five to 10 times faster than the
speed of sound.

Cold Virus
Disappears
In Ice-Box
Lost-a speciman of the com-
mon cold virus, alias MR-1.
This is the essence of a recent
report issued by Dr. Leon T. Atlas
of the U.S. Public Health Service.
The ellusive virus, having been iso-
lated in 1947 by the National In-
stitute of Health, has disappeared
due to mechanical failure of lab-
oratory refrigerators.
ACCORDING to an authority at
the School of Public Health, how-
ever, the reports on the isolation of
this virus had not been conclusive
enough for us to assume that much
actual progress had been made.
The main obstacle in doing re-
search with the cold virus is the
difficulty of obtaining a satis-
factory experimental animal, he
explained.
Until recently the only animals
which have been able to "catch
cold" effectively enough for scien-
tific study have been man and the
chimpanzee.
THE CHIMPANZEE, however, is
an expensive experimental subject,
costing as much as $600 for a sin-
gle animal.
Scientists in England have
used man himself for their
guinea pig. The British govern-
ment set up "cold camps" where
individuals were encouraged to
spend a week and catch cold, all
expenses paid. However, no in-
formation was obtained from
this experiment that had not al-
ready been known.
In 1947 when the scientists at
the National Institute of Health at
Bethesda, Md. reported isolating
the MR-1 virus in a chick embryo,
it was hoped that a suitable expe-
rimental animal had finally been
found.
The loss of MR-1 due to me-
chanical difficulties, however, may
prove to be a severe setback in this
research.

"FAMILY PORTRAIT":
Prof. Baird To Appear
In Speech Production

Prof. Claribel Baird of the
speech department will play the
leading role of Mary in the depart-
ment's production of "Family Por-
trait," to be presented Nov. 30 to

Jesus and presents them as an
everyday group of people whose
son and brother has acquired sud-
den notice.
* * *
CRITICS OF "Family Portrait"
call the character of Mary "lov-
ingly written." She has the "mov-
ing sincerity of a woman who des-
perately wants to understand her
own son and who takes disarming
pride in his apparent success in
the great world outside."
Mrs. Baird has previously ap-
peared on campus as Mama in "I
Remember Mama," Mrs. Mala-
prop in "The Rivals," Madame
Arcati in "Blithe Spirit," and
Zenobia in "Ethan Frome."
James Reason, '50, Nafe Katter,

Grad., and Bruce Huffman, '50,
will take the roles of Joseph, James
and Simon, brothers of Jesus, who
resent His leaving Nazareth in the
height of the building season, de-
pelting the working force of the
family.
THE PART of Mary Cleophas
will be played by Virginia Camp-
bell, '50. Margaret Pell, '50, will
take the part of Mary Magdala.
Other members of the cast in-
clude James White, Ann Hussel-
man, Ted Heusel, Jim Bob Steph-
enson, John Sargent, Marilyn Be-
gole, George Olson, Alice Juzek,

In final tribute to the turkey the
Union will celebrate Thanksgiving
weekend with a "Cranberry Ball"
to be held from 9 p.m. to midnight
today.
Cranberries will take the form
of red balloons hanging from the
ceiling. Walls will be decorated
with tomahawk - waving Indians
threatening placid pilgrims as they
prepare to eat a traditional turkey
feast.
During intermission Dick Schue-
ler, who has appeared as emcee
at former Union dances, will an-
nounce the intermission entertain-
ment.

A new "faster than sound" wind
tunnel which duplicates low at-
mospheric conditions existing
more than 30 miles above the
earth ,has been designed by Uni-
versity engineers.
The new type of wind tunnel
was described for the first time
yesterday by its designers, Prof.
William G. Dow, of the electrical
engineering department, and Har-
old Early, Research Engineer, at a
meeting of the American Physical
Society in Chicago.

Several University faculty mem-
bers will attend the annual meet-
ing of the National Municipal
League to be held Nov. 28 to 30 at
St. Paul, Minn.
Expected to attend the Twin
Cities Conference are Prof. Arthur
W. Bromage, Prof. Harold M. Dorr,
Prof. John A. Perkins, Assistant
Provost of the University, Prof.
John Lederle, Director of Curricu-
lum in the Institute of Public Ad-
ministration, all of the political
science department..
WILBERT HINDMAN, Coordi-
nator of the German Visitor's Pro-
gram, will also attend the confer-
ence.
Prof. Bromage will lead a
group discussion on "Home Rule
for American Cities."
Prof. Perkins will speak on "The
Future of State Reorganization in
Michigan" and Prof. Dorr will par-
ticipate in a panel discussion of
"Direct Primary Laws.".

allowing air at ground level atmos-
pheric pressure to flow into 'a
vacuum tank, are not capable of
simulating conditions at extremely
high altitudes and high velocities,
according to Early and Dow.
These conditions are neces-
sary for the testing of high
speed rockets and other high al-
titudes apparatus.
The new, electrically operated
"ionic wind tunnel" is designed to
produce a hypersonic wind flow,
five to 10 times faster- than the
speed of sound, by means of an
electric arc generated between a
copper cylinder and a surrounding
copper ring, Early and Dow ex-
plained.
THEY POINTED OUT, however,
that actual velocities are produced
which are higher than can,:be ac-
curately measured by- present
methods available for:use at low
pressures. The rotating motion of
the arc causes the air in the tun-
nel to revolve at extremely l -gh
speeds.
The new type wind tunnel was
developed in the University's De-
partment of Electrical Engineering
laboratories under the administra-
tion of the Engineering Research
Institute.

Anti-Bias Petition
Petitions requesting removal of
certain clauses from University
application blanks are being cir-
culated among students and fac-

End Discrimination.
Clauses asking for race, religion,

aimed at by the CED, as one of its
main objectives.
