New York, June 28.-(By A.P.)-
Seemingly hopelessly divided on the
issue of whether the klan is to be
named specifically and surrounded
by war clods loaded with threats of
a party split, the convention man-
agers sent Homer S. Cummings the
chairman of the platform committee
to the bat to explain to the conven-
tion why the platform is being delaped
and to plead for more time.
TIred and Worn Out
Tired and worn by continuous lose

Cummings gave as dramatic a recita-

Explaining the deliberations of the
committee and its inability to reach

atic silence, how, after an all night

unison the Lord's prayer, after which
William Jennings Bryan had raised

THE A TAKERa
Model Of New
By Matilda Rosenfeld
How many students-or even mem-
bers of the Faculty-we wonder, when
they saw in Wednesday's "Daily" the
news items about the trial trip of The
Greater Detroit, realized that the mod-
el for that steamer was made here in
the University Naval Tank Room in
the basement of the Engineering
Building. The Greater Detroit and its
sister, the Greater Buffalo, are now the
largest passenger vessels on the
Great Lakes. Both were built by the
Detroit Shipbuilding Company for the
Detroit & Cleveland Navigating Co.
from the model made here.
'When the experimental ship tank
oi the University of Michigan was
completed in 1903, Prof. Herbert C.
Sadler of the Marine Engineering De-
partment expressed the hope that "the
work done at the University would
help towards the solution of many
problems and prove a benefit to the
profession of Naval Architecture as a
whole". This hope has been realized.
Today the prime object of the Uni-
versity Naval Tank is "the carrying
on of investigations which will en-
able ship builders throughout Ithe
country to know what is the most effi-
cient form of vessel to adopt in order
to obtain the maximum efficiency."
The shape or lines of a vessel, to-
gether with the estimate of the horse-
power necessary to drive her any giv-
en speed, is the most interesting and,
at the same time, the most difficult
part of the naval architect's work.
Since a new design is seldom a coun-
terpart of a former one, it is difficult
to foretell what the effect of the modi-
fications of the vessel's form will be,
and it is even more difficult to say,
which is the best form to fulfill any
given set of conditions.
Models are made of paraffin wax
because of the uniform surface, ease
in handling and economy, for they can
be broken up and the wax used again
for other patterns. The conditions of
the actual ship are reproduced in the
model, and from these the horse-power
required for the ship is determined.
Models used are from 10 ft. to 12 ft.
long and may represent a vessel of any
kind or size. By Froude's "Law of
Comparison", the resistance of a full-
sized ship is predicted.
To cast a model, a mould is first
prepared by placing in sculptors' clay
some section of the vessel cut out of
wood. These wood sections are later
replaced by a canoe-like core of strips
of wood covered with canvas. Next,
melted parffin wax is poured into the
space between the core and the mould
so that the model is 1 1-2 inches in
thickness. In order to overcome the
tendency of the core to float, and al-
so to cool it more quickly, water is
introduced into the inside of the core
while the wax is being poured.

Ann Arbor To Celebrate
Ann Arbor will celebrate the cen-
tennial of its founding Friday, July 4,
in a real old-fashioned Independence
Day manner. The event is being
sponsored by the Centennial Celebra-
tion Committee of which Willis John-
son is chairman.
The exact date of Ann Arbor's birth
is not known but 1824 has been ac-
cepted as the year in which the first
white man settled in the district now
included within the city's boundaries.
The program for the day opens at 10
o'clock with a baseball game at West
Park. At noon an old fashioned fam-
ily picnic dinner will be held on the
Fair Grounds, which to be the scene
of the rest of the days activities. Hon.
H. Wirt Newkirk has been secured
to give the day's oration.
Horse races, band concerts, and
songs by an Ypsilanti colored quartet
are other features on the program.
All of the entertainment will be free
of charge except the horse races
where admission to the grand stand
will be charged. A small parking
charge will also be necessary. Re-
freshments will be sold on the grounds
by various church and social organ-
izations of the city.
The carnival which was to have been
held by Veterans of Foreign Wars
has been cancelled by order of the
State Board of Health.

Twenty-Six Sign Up for Two Courses
Offered for First Time This
LABORATORY TESTS MATERIALS
USED BY STATE DEPARTMENT
Two courses in highway engineering
and transportation which are being
given for the first time this summer
have proven to be very popular, ac-
cording to Prof. Arthur H, Blanchard,
head of the department or highway
engineering and highway transport-
ation. The courses are "Highway en-
gineering theory and economics and
Highway transport surveys" and
"Highway transport economics, meth-
ods, legislation and management."
Twenty-six students have elected
these two courses, which makes cer-
tain their repitition next year. A num-
ber of graduate students have elected
the courses, among whom are includ-
ed an assistant professor of civil en-
,gineering at Washington university
of St. Louis, a member of the Cali-
fornia highway commission, a mem-
ber of the South Carolina highway
commission and a candidate for the
degree of doctor of philosophy who is
specializing in transportation.
i Twenty thousand equare feet of
laboratory space in the basement and
afirst floor of the new Engineering
building have been provided for the
department. By an ideal arrange-
ment made with the State Highway
department the University laboratory
tests all of the highway materials
for that department, his arrange-
ment has been very beneficial to both
the state and the highway engineer-
- Chapin Gives Scholarship
Materials tested for the state includ-
ed Portland cement, sand, gravel and
stone aggregates, concrete, ledge rock,
paving brick, corrugated metal pipe,
reinforcing steel, calcium chloride,
tar, asphalt, oils, emulsions, bitumin-
ous mixtures, and paint.
Through the generosity of Ray D.
Chapin, of the Detroit Edison com-
pany, one fellowship in highway trans-
portation and three in highway en-
gineering are available each year.
These fellowships, which pay the sum
of $250 with an allowahce of $50 for
expenses, have resulted in keen com-
petition among graduates of many in-

equipped library. It is the custodian
of the Davis Library of Highway En-

lection of literature on these subjects
in existence. Besides this there are
books, reports, specifications, mono-
graphs and files of trade publications,
and all technical periodicals which
