inittees On Agenda

erican Ambassador Kellogg and Col.
James A. Logan, the American obser-
ver -with the reparation commission
were present with four advisers and
a number of secretaries.
Formally welcoming the delegates
to the conference Prime Minister Mac-
Donald made especial reference to the
presnce of the Americans. He noted
they were not present as full dele.
gates but he took their presence as
indicating the good-will and co-oper-
ation of the United States in the effort
to make the Dawes plan effective.
Opening the formal proceedings of
the conference, Premier MacDonald
briefly surveyed the reparation prob-
lem, urging the importance of putting
the Dawes report into effect as a
whole, without change of details.
Responding to the British prime
minister's welcome, Premier Herriot
of France thanked his colleague for
his "noble words." He recognized
the apparent difficulties before the
conference, but he thought everybody
was "imbued alike with love of coun-
try and love of peace."
Therefore he believed the interests
of the various peoples concerned could
be conclated M. Herriot proposed
Premier MacDonald as chairman of
the confernce, after which the busi.
ness of organization was begun. Sir'
Maurice Hankey was named secretary
general and three committees were
appointed to work out the agenda
along the lines of the Herriot-Mac-
Donald communique issued from
Paris, July 9.
The conference then adjourned until
Prof. Henry E. Riggs of the Civil
Engineering Department will lecture
on the "Development in American
Transportation", in the Natural Sci-
ence auditorium at 5 o'clock today.
Professor Riggs, treating the sub-
pect from an historical viewpoint,
will trace American transportation
from its beginning years of stage
coaches and covered wagons, through
the time of canals and the first ex-
periments with steam engines, and fin-
ally will discuss the elaborate railway
system of today, the interior water
ways, and the automobiles. In his
discussion of the railways and high-,
ways,- Profesor Riggs will endeavor
to show the magnitude of the present
day transportation problem.
The lecture will be illustrated by

slides, some of them contrasting the
old methods of transportation with
the modern.
Prof. John S. Worley of the Engin-
eering school and Mrs. Worley are

ter part of June to be gone until Sept-

day qualified for the semi-final event,
while Pete Desjardens of Miami, Fla.,

The long awaited duel between1
Weismuller and Andrew Charlton, the
young Australian phenomenon, failed
to materialize when they met todayt
in the 400 meter free style race in
qualifying for the semi-final. Both
the American and Australian kept G
themselves well in hand as thoug I
saving their strength for the finals.1
Weismuller, who is the pt of the
French public and received1 loudert
cheering than any of the French en-
trants, finished today's race ahead of
the Australian, but it was evident1
that neither be nor Charlton was ex1

excursion since the institution of that
trip as a regular feature of the Sum-
mer session, according to reports of
students who made the excursion, was
made last week-end under the direc-
tion of Prof. William H. Hobbs, of
the geology department.
The party made the trip from De-
troit by boat to Buffalo and by rail
to the falls. Seventy-five took the
trip, the largest number in its his-
tory. The gorge trip was made,
stops being included for the study of
geologic formations and the scenery.
The night illumination of the falls
was observed from Goat Island, and
many of the party took the ride on
the Maid of the Mist past the foot of
the falls. The accuracy with which
the trip was planned and carried out
lent much to the pleasure of those
who made it.

The University Fresh Air camp is
now in its fourth year, thcugh this
is only the second year at its pres-
ent site. It has always been support-
ed by the students of the Univerity.
"Send a kid to camp" is the slogan
during the campaigns and authorities
in charge of the work of the camp are
desirous of a ready support on the
campus this summer. Last year,
$264 was raised in the one day drive.
It will be necessary to raise $300
this year if the work of the camp is
to continue.
The camp is under the supervision
of University men who give up their
summers to lead the boys. An under,
taking of the Students Christian As-
sociation, it has grown to be one of
the outstanding services of the Uni-
versity to the people of the state.

manner, Prof. W. F. Colby, of the
physics department, yesterday after-
noon lectured to an interested audi-
ence on "The Theory of Quanta."
In the course of developing his
topic, Professor Colby brought out
the difference between. the average be-
haviour of a large number of people
or objects and the behaviour of any
scientific individual. He stressed the
point that while a generalization of
behaviour may hold good when ap-
plied to a large enough group, n.o in-
dividual part of the group necessar-
ily acts in accordance with this gen-

"expectation of life" predicted and
used by insurance companies. No
one person lives precisely this pre-
dicted length of time, but when the
duration of life for a number are av-
eraged, it is exactly the predicted
Professor Colby then showed that
it was quite possible that the same
idea applied to some of the so-called
fundamental laws of science, that they
are only generalizations of the be-
haviour of the immense number of
small parts, or quanta, that seem to
make up a visible body of matter. He
said that these same theories could be
applied to energy also, although this
is a more difficult conception.
Summing up, the speaker said that
this idea of quanta had tremendous
possibilities-that perhaps space, time,
and events do not take place contin-
uously, but in a series of disconnect-
ed steps. He said, "These ideas
are certainly going to be disconcert-
ing to'our old established theories of
1 energy and motion."
