The second University Extension
Service's Upper Peninsula Concert
Education series will begin with a
performance at Houghton October
6.
Beginning its second season as a
pilot project, the series was organ-
ized by the University in order to
bring both concert artists and
musical 'education to the Upper
Peninsula high school students.
Last year more than 2,000 per-
sons gathered to hear the concerts
given by the faculty of the Univer-
sity music school and 3,000 stu-
dents attended pre-concert clinics
in five Upper Peninsula cities to
learn first hand from listening to
the University musicians.
Six communities were contacted
to participate in the series and all
accepted. One later dropped out
because of lack of finances.
Concerts this season are sched-
uled for Crystal Falls, Newberry,
Houghton-Hancock, Ironwood, and
Sault Ste. Marie.
The season's program includes'
the Vocal-Instrumental Ensemble,
the Stanley Quartet, the Brass En-
semble, Vocal-Piano Duo with
Richard Miller, leading tenor of
Zurich Opera Co., the Woodwind
Quintet, and 'Opera Scenes pre-
sented by music school;students.

Having trouble concentrating?
Your trouble. may lie in what
the seismologist calls "micro-
seisms" - a handy word, used by
scientists to describe one of their
headaches, noise.
Seismology, which is concerned
with the study of vibrations
caused by earthquakes, bombs and
blasts in general, is also concerned
in a slightly different manner
with noise.
Records Vibrations
The basic tool of seismography,
the seismograph, records vibra-
tions by means of a small beam of
light which travels across a piece
of photographic paper, tracing the
amplitude and period of the pass-
ing waves.
The microseisms-street noises,
noisy trains, atmospheric disturb-
ances -create vibrations of their
own, which can make highly ac-
curate readings difficult.
The University's seismograph
"station," located in the basement
of the Natural Science Building,
has only one seismograph in op-
eration at present, but another is
being improved.

Seismographs Troubled

--Daily-Norman Jacobs
RUSSIAN TRAVELER-Professor W. B.. Balljs was constantly
greeted by placards proclaiming "Peace To The World," during
his recent tour of Russia. Ballis said the Russians are trying to
claim a monopoly on world peace.

capital. "I was free to go where I
wished and do what I wanted in
Moscow," he said.
Low Living Standard;
Russian people have a standard
of living three or four times lower
than Americans, he pointed out.
The Red's answer to this fact is
in the form of a boast. Russian
workingmen are informed that
their standard of living will exceed
the American's in the short period
of a few years.
"Of course, this is impossible.
The Russians could not hope to
even approach the American stan-
dard with their present system of
economic organization," Prof. Bal-

sor would listen to what I had to
say about the American way of
life," he continued.
The Russian press and radio
present a very stereotyped view of
the United ,States, he 'said. Domi-
nation of the economy by monopo-
listic corporations, rampant politi-
cal corruption and racial tension
form the main picture -Russians
have of America.
"I was constantly reminded of
the racial injustices in the United
States. The Russians also blamed
America for obstructing the stop-
page of the arms race," he com-
mented.
"The Soviet system has not
changed .considerably during the
past eleven years. The country is
still controlled by the top dictator-
ship of the Communist Party,"
Ballis stated.
"There is a little more freedom
than during the time of Stalin-it
is still a police state," the profes-
sor concluded.

Study of many seismograms en-

ables the seismologist to obtain
information on the .properties of
the materials through which " a
wave passes.
It was in this manner that seis-
mologists were able to tell that
the earth's core is not solid but
fluid and that there may be an
inner core as well.
Vibration Waves
When an earthquake occurs,
waves of vibration begin to travel
through the earth and on its sur-
face.
Surface waves from a very large
earthquake may pass completely
around the globe several times be-
fore they die out to a p'int beyond
detection.
Because different types 'of vi-
brations travel at different velo-
cities, they are recorded by seis-
mographs at different times and
the duration of all recorded mo-
tion may last several hours.
