Research Engineers Begin
Analyzing Air Samples
A picture of how the average
public school ages decade by dec-
ade is being developed through a
research program at the Univer-
sity, A. Benjamin Handler has an-
"We want to help school board
members and administrators ob-
tain maximum educational bene-
fits at the least cost. There is
little, if any, information avail-
able to them on the useful lives
of school buildings, the changes
to be expected through the, years,
and the ages at which a building
should be repaired or abandoned.
Our objective is to provide this in-
formation," he said.
To find out how the average
school building deteriorates, the
researchers charted the defects
in a large sample of "unsatisfact-
ory" schools in Michigan, then cor-
related these defects with age.
During the first two decade or
so, it is noted, only relatively minor
defects and inadequacies show up.
The third decade is one of two
critical periods, however, for the
number of defects becomes mark-
ed, much equipment needs to be
replaced, and a general renovation
is sometimes in order.
University aeronautical engi-
neers have begun the ticklish job
of analyzing the contents of bot-
tles of thin air gathered at the
edge of the earth's atmosphere by
high altitude rockets, Elton A.
Wenzel, Engineering Research In-
stitute associate announced re-
The bottles are from two Areo-
bee rockets that were fired to an
altitude of 50 miles at White
Sands, N. Mex. this summer. At
the peak of each flight, three bot-
ties in each rocket were opened for
five seconds to suck in eight quarts
of air. Then they were automati-
cally sealed and lowered to the
earth by parachute.
Show Distribution of Gases
Engineering Research Institute
workers, contracted by the Army
Signal Corps to equip the rockets
and analyze the samples obtained,
hope to show through these flights
how the gases which make up the
earth's atmosphere are distribut-
ed at various heights.
For a week to two weeks before
each flight the bottles were baked
at 340 degrees F. while virtually
all the air inside was drawn out,
Wenzel said. These high vacuums
werethen checked with a precise
instrument called a mass spectro-
Steps were then taken to ventf
the rockets during flight and to
break off the propulsion units from
the instrument sections just prior

that overcoat-in fact, maybe you
better get a spare or two-the
woolly bears indicate we're in for
one of the most severe winters in
The woolly bears, for the bene-
fit of the uninitiated, are furry
caterpillars that abound in many
parts of the United States about
this time of every year.
As the legend would have it-
the coldr of the little caterpillars'
coat is a sign of the sort of winter
weather that can be expected.
The woolly bear's fur covering
normally is in. three segments,
sometimes all three the same color
To Speak Here
Lester Thonssen, president of
the Speech Association of Ameri-
ca and professor at the College of
the City of New York, will address
a University Speech Assembly
Wednesday at 4 p.m. in Rackham
Lecture Hall the speech depart-
ment has announced.
Professor Thonssen's talk will
be on "Thoughts on a Great Am-
erican Institution." A native of
Iowa, Professor Thonssen received
an A.B. degree from Huron College
and A.M. and Ph.D. degrees from
the State University of Iowa. Be-
sides serving on the faculty of the
College of the City of New York
for the last 25 years, Dr. Thons-
sen has also been a visiting pro-
fessor during summer sessions at
Montana State University, Uni-
versity of Southern California,
Columbia University, and others.
-either brown or black-and
sometimes three different shades
of one or both of these hues.
Each segment represents-to the
weather prophets-a third of the
coming winter season. The darker
the color of each segment of the
caterpillar's coat, the colder and
nastier the weather will be in the
corresponding period of winter.-
This fall, the woolly bears are
all one color from stem to stern-
and the color in this case is coal
Herb Krone, a reporter for the
Lancaster New Era and weather
devotee, makes it his annual busi-
ness to check on the color of the
"I never saw them so black,"
said Krorfe. And he adds that isn't
the worst by any means.
Darker portions of two segments
indicate there will be intense
storms in the middle or latter part
of January and February. The ex-
pected sub-freezing temperatures
in between these, moreover, will
keep whatever snow shows up on
the ground for long periods. In
short, it should be a good year for
sleds, snow shoes and skis.
