YEAR OF PROGRESS:
Science Convention Reveals,
Top Achievements of 1949
P 4

Significant scientific achieve-
ments accomplished in 1949 were
revealed during the Christmas va-
cation at the recent convention
of the American Association for
the Advancement of Science in
New York City.
Prof. Albert Einstein presented
to the convention his "generalized
theory of gravitation"-a series of
formulas which seek to weave all
known physical phenomena into
one master concept:
THE DISCOVERY of a previ-
ously unknown degree of efficiency
in green plants was announced at
the convention by Prof. Otto War-
burg, one of the world's leading
biologists.
While the best machines made
by man are only 25-30 per cent
Kamrowski
Art Exhibited
Forty-seven works of art by
Prof. Gerome Kamrowski will be
presented at an exhibition open-
ing today in Paris.
Prof. Kamrowski, whose most
recent works in oil, watercolor, and
ink drawings will be displayed at
the Galerie R. Creuze until Jan.
22, is the winner of the 1948 Cran-
brook Prize and the 1948 Michigan
Academy of Arts, Science, and
Letters Show.
Prof. Kamrowski has been on
the staff of the College of Archi-
tecture and Design since 1946.
His work may currently be seen
in the "Works of Progress" ex-
hibition circulating throughout the
state.

efficient, Prof. Warburg has dis-
covered that plants are 65-80
per cent efficient in their use
of the sun's energy.
Prof. Warburg pointed out algae,
which are single celled plants, are
so efficient that 50 tons of the
plant could be harvested from one
acre. The plants could be utilized
as feed for animals or as a direct
source of food for man, he said.
* * *
SCIENTISTS AT the convention
vere also given a mild mental sur-
prise when Prof. Vaden Miles of
Wayne University revealed that
cientific research had shown
nany of the old proverbs and say-
ngs used to predict the weather
o be correct.
"Higher the clouds, finer the
weather, faster the wind, sooner
the change in weather," .was
proved by Prof. Miles to be sci-
entifically accurate.
But "North wind blow and we
shall have snow," is just a bit of
false mythology, according to Prof.
Miles.
ANOTHER DISCOVERY which
may allow the deaf to hear was
announced by Prof. Norbert Wien-
er of MIT.
The projected device will be
worn as a glove, and tiny in-
struments in each finger will re-
ceive vibrations corresponding to
tones of the human voice, which
the deaf person may learn to
translate.
Prof. Elvin Stakman, president
of the AAA, also declared at the
convention that it is possible for
science to eliminate starvation and
provide an abundance of food for
the world through new breeding,
crop control and reducing the de-
structive effects of weather.
Members of the association dis-
agreed as to what action univer-
sities should take on scientific re-
search projects that are or might
become "secret."
Some scientists argued that such
projects were a distortion of the
function of a university, while
others held that the work must be
done and the universities were best
able to do it.

Daily Gives
Experience
In Business
Fifty Staffers
Handle Finances
(EDITOR'S NOTE: This is the
fifth of a series of articles to ac-
quaint students with some of the
Influential organizations on campus
a'ir how members and officers are
chosen.)
By PETER HOTTON
Unique among campus groups is
'he Daily's business staff, an or-
ganization of 50 unsung financial
giants who handle the paper's
near-$100,000 turnover each year.
The distinguishing feature of
the staff is that most members
deal exclusively with townspeople,
ignoring students and faculty
members. One-third of the staff
are in business administration and
all the men, who make up two-
thirds of the staff, plan to go into
the business world.
THE STAFF is neatly divided
into three groups: advertising,
circulation and finance. Adver-
tising staff members collect, write,
promote and make up advertise-
ments; circulation workers get
the paper out to its 7,600 readers
and the finance staff has all the
fun-they collect all the money.
Any second semester fresh-
man can get on to the business
staff by trying out, which
amounts to the freshman seeing
if the staff is any good instead
of the staff seeing if the fresh-
man is competent.
After this trial period, which
lasts about two weeks, he becomes
a servicer, having exclusive re-
sponsibility to three or four city
merchants, writing their ads or
picking up ads written by the ad-
vertiser.
* * *
OTHER JOBS are reading proof
and getting acquainted with other
departments throughout his
freshman and sophomore years.
In the second semester of his
sophomore year, he can peti-
tion the senior managers for
paid assistant positions to the
heads of business departments.
The seven junior staff positions
are available through informal
petitions to and appointments by
the senior managers. They include
all department heads who are
fully responsible for circulation,
compiling all advertisements both
local and national, making up ad-
vertisements on the page each
day, billing accounts for classified
and display advertising and a
general all-around secretary to
anyone on the staff who wants
some paper work done.
* * *
PROMOTIONS manager is al-
so a junior, who signs and lets
all contracts, usually by the year
or semester.
After working several years
bucking keen competition all
the way through the staffs, a
staffer can petition the Board in
Control of Student Publications
for one of four senior positions,
listed on the Daily's masthead
on the editorial page.
Business manager is in charge
of the entire staff, acting as a
liaison officer between the staffs
and advertisers and having the
pleasure of co-signing all Daily
checks.
Advertising manager is overseer
of all advertising, from the
smallest "lost-one dog" ad to
the biggest national cigarette ad.
Finance manager has the head-

ache of handling all accounts and
the myriad of figures in the book-
keeping departmnt.
Associate business manager
trains all understaffmen to bring
in the $100,000 a year and to con-
tinue The Daily's reputation as
having not only the most but the
best advertising in college dailies.
