FRUIT JAR FULL OF FINGERS:
'U' Professor Devises
Fingerprinting Method

By ALLAN STILLWAGON
What would you do with a fruit
jar full of fingers?
It would undoubtedly pose a
problem, and one would be lucky
to accomplish as much with it as
Prof. Albert Richards of the School
of Dentistry X-ray Department
has.
Using this grisly lead, and a
standard dental x-ray machine,
Prof. Richards has devised a new
method' of restoring fingerprint im-
pressions from charred hands of
fire victims.
Better Method Needed
The necessity for a better me-
thod of post-mortem identification
was introduced to the dental
school expert by the Detroit Fire
Department. Charred bodies of
fire victims were often unidentifi-
able, and it was difficult to de-
termine whether murder had tak-
en place. Hence, the jar.
The result of Prof. Richards' in-
vestigation is a process for radio-
graphing molds and replicas of
surfaces which is sure to be adapt-
ed to police and legal work
throughout the country.
He is now able to make X-ray
photographs of skin areas burned
too badly for printing by usual
methods. The surfaces of oil
paintings can be mapped in order
to study the artist's technique at
close range.
Fossils embedded in rock can be
reproduced on film with previous-
ly untold accuracy.
Honorary Gets
19 Members
Beta Epsilon chapter of Eta
Kappa Nu, electrical engineering
honorary, inducted 19 new mem-
bers last night.
New members of the honorary
are: Edward J. Blott, '56E, Timo-
thy Felisky, '57E, Howard S. Gold-
berg, '57E, William J. Graessley,
'57, James King, '57E, Gerhard T.
Konrad, '57E, Charles E. Kuninen,
'57E, James R. McCormick, '57E,
Nino A. Masnari, '57E, Thomas L.
Miller, '56E, Douglas F. Nauts,
'56E, Edwin T. Oakes, '56E, Dale
C. Ray, '56E, Allan L. Rock, '56E,
John A. Schick, '57E, Raymond R.
Seppeler, '56E, Paul M. Shaler,
'56E, Philip H. Sheldon, '56E, and
William G. Windeknecht, '57E.

By means of the special appli-
cations possible, the inside of pipes
and tubing can now be examined
for flaws hitherto undetectable.
Uses Balloons
To make the pictures, Prof. Rich-
ards uses toyballoons; dental film-
packets, zinc bromide solution and
an x-ray machine. On the skin
to be studied, a layer of zinc bro-
mide solution is painted.
Then the operator presses a par-
tially inflated balloon against the
solution and holds it in place with
the nose of the machine. A "liquid
mold" of opaque solution is formed
in the exact shape of the finger
indentations.
Mold Image
An image of the mold, rather
than the skin, is left on the film,
and may be projected to extreme
sizes for closer examination.
Scientists, police authorities, in-
surance investigators, and indus-
trialists are indicating interest in
the new development, which may
prove to be an extremely impor-
tant contribution to any one of
the fields.

"Is that so?" said Ed, who until this moment had believed
deer had gall bladders.
"Ben Jonson," said Alfreda, "was buried in a sitting position."
"Hmm," said Ed.
"'Fortnight' is a contraction of 'fourteen nights,'" said
Alfrede'
"What do you know!" said Ed.
"Many people think it is forbidden to wash an American
flag," said Alfreda. "That is not true. It is perfectly proper to
Wash an American flag."
"Learn something every day," said Ed.
"The smallest fish in the world," said Alfreda, "is the Pan-
daka Pygmea, which is under a half inch when full grown."
"How come they buried that Jonson sitting up?" said Ed.
"It's terribly crowded in Westminster Abbey," said Alfreda.
"Oh," said Ed.
"Ann Boleyn had six fingers on her left hand," said Alfreda.
"Heavens to Betsy !" said Ed.
"Are there any questions you'd care to ask me?" said Alfreda.
