Speaker On Regular Lecture Program
Describes Modern Methods For
"Uses for the X-ray are rapidly in-j
creasing, especially since the discov-
ery of the wave theory in 1912," said,
Assistant Professor James M. Cork,,
in his lecture, "X-ray and their Use
in Science," delivered in the auditor-
ium of the. Natural Science building
yesterday afternoon.
The speaker described the present
idea of the rays cast off by the X-ray
tube as being a series of light waves
about one five thousandth of the
length of ordinary light waves. Cer-
tain objects or substances are more1
opaque to these waves than others,
and when an object composed of such!
substances is placed in a substance
more transparent the rays from the
tube make a shadow on a photo-
graphic plate. For example, if the
human body is placed between the
X-rays and a photographic plate, the
bones will appear as dark shadows.
Main Use Medical
This gives rise toone of thedmain
uses of the X-ray, that of medicine.
It is possible to photograph not only
the banes, but also the arteries or di-
gestive system, by giving the patient,

a certain medicine that makes these
organs more opaque than the rest of
the body. In the same way, the X-
ray is used inthestudy of botany
and zoology, and aids in the study
of plants and animals.
Prof. Cork told of experiments that
were made with a large n nber of
beetles that tended to show that X-
rays are capable of ending life. He
stated that nearly all of the early
experimenters in the X-ray died as a
result of their contact with the rays.
Active In Science
One of the increasingly important
uses of the X-ray is in industry ac-
cording to Prof. Cork. It is possible
to discover artificial diamonds, due'
to the fact that the real diamond is
more transparent to X-rays than are
any of the substances used to make
artificial stones.
Moreover, since the X-ray has en-
abled scientists to picture and chart
the atomical make-up of the various
elements, it has been useful in the
discovery of new elements, and also
offers a method for the chemist to
discover what is in a mixture of ele-
ments. In the same manner it is
possible to tell whether a certain
metal can be stretched or whether it
is good enough for certain purposes
requiring great strain.

An auditorium filled to capacity is
expected to greet PresidentkClarence
Cook Little when he speaks tomor-
row afternoon at 5 o'clock on the
subject "Science and Religion" in
Natural Science auiditorium.
In delivering his talk tomorrow
President Little will make his first
public appearance before the stu-
dents of the Summer Session. The
lecture previously scheduled for that
time on "Don Quixote" by Professor
Charles P. Wagner of the department
of, Romance Languages has been can-
celled, according to Edward H. Kraus,
dean of the Summer Session, to make
possible the accommodations for the
president's address.
In his address the president is ex-
pected to discuss the various aspects
of the relationship between the func-
tions of science and the field of re-
ligion, according to Martin Mol, '30,
president of the Student Christian
Association, which is sponsoring the
lecture. 0
Arrangements have been made
whereby the doors of the auditorium
will be open at 4:30 o'clock, thus
eliminating the congestion at the
door. The lecture will begin a few
minutes past five, enabling students
who have four o'clock classes to at-

Divides Lecture Into 21 Points For
Consideration In Adjusting
New Teacher
"Most classrooms today are more
like prisons than pleasant study
rooms," declared Prof. Raleigh Schor-
ling in a lecture on "What To Do
With Thee Beginning Teacher" de-
livered in the auditorium of the Uni-
versity high school yesterday after-
noon. That the teacher should do
all he could td' make the classroom as
attractive and home-like as possible
was one of the main points made by
the speaker,
"However, in spite of the apparent
deficiency in this line at present, the
school systems of the state are mak-
ing great progress in beautifying
their buildings," he added.
Light Work Desired
The lecture was divided into a dis-
cussion of 21 points necessary for
consideration in adjusting the new
teacher to his position. The first of
these was that the beginning teacher
should be given the lightest possible
burden of work to carry. "It too
often happens that all the extra
duties and more difficult types of
work are loaded onto the newcomer,"
Professor Schorling pointed out.
"This should not be done, because
there is enough difficulty to be met
with in making the adjustment to
new working conditions.
"It must also be realized that an
important part of the teachers train-
ing must be given him during the
early months of service," he went
on. "The principal or supervisor
should get acquainted with the teach-
er in this time, learning something
of his personal problems, aiding him
in illness, and contriving in every
way possible to get him acquainted]
and adjusted.
Tactful Critleism
"Your true function is to mobilize
good practice and to distribute it to
those that need it," he said, address-
ing himself particularly to the ad-
"It is a good idea to team the
beginning teacher with one that is
experienced and an "old" member of
the staff," Professor Schorling con-
tinued. "This will almost certainly
help the newcomer by accelerating
his initiation into the routine of the
With a varied and well-balanced
program and a group of three artists
each making his distinct contribution
to the evening's enjoyment, the fourth
summer concert at 8:15 o'clock to-
night in Hill auditorium is expected
to draw a large crowd of the musical-
ly inclined. Earl V. Moore, organist,
Thelma Lewis, soprano, and Emily
Mutter, violinist will be the feature
artists and, Bach, Widor, Scarlatti,
Mozart, Mendelssohn, Kresler, and,
by request, Mr. Moore's own composi-

tion, "ReverietatrTwilight," the
high lights of the program.
At the Women's Educational Club
meeting Monday night Mrs. W. D. Hen-
derson, who had charge of the drive to
raise the money for the new Women'sj
League Building, spoke on the new
building. Mary White, president of
the Women's League for 1928-29, and
M'arie 'Hairwig, summer president,
also spoke.
Mrs. Henderson described the base-
ment o f the new building where the'
main kitchen and service rooms will
be installed. On the next floor the'
women's lounge, a memorial to Ethel
Fountain Hussey, who was the first
president of the Women's League, and
the men's and women's lounge will
be situated.

"Summer school students would
find it difficult to discover a more
profitable place to spend the vacation
months than on the campus at Ann
Arbor," declared Dr. Robert Hannah,
of the speech department, in an in-
terview granted yesterday. 'The ad-
vantages of the summer session are
twofold. First, it offers a place where
intensive study, and graduate and re-
search work can be carried on.
Teachers and others interested in do-
ing special work are made to feel
that they are accomplishing some-
"In the second place," Doctor Han-
nah pointed out, "the university offers
a great many special functions, such
as excursions to points of interest in
the district conducted by experts,
several series of lectures by eminent
authorities covering almost every
field of learning and study, and a
number of interesting and instructive
programs of drama and music. All
of these things give the students an
opportunity to broaden themselves in
many ways. A larger cultural back-
ground is open to them, while their
regular studies give them the special
training which is their primary pur-
pose in coming here,
"The value of the fine things pre-
sented in the field of music and
drama cannot be overestimated," he
added. "The Rockford players, who
have an unusually fine company this
summer, have been giving us some
most interesting plays. The frequent
Outstanding loans to students num-
bered 1002 for a total of $119,000 on
July 1, it was reported today by Dean
of Students Joseph A. Bursley. This
total amount and number of loans
are the greatest since funds for stu-
dent help first became available, it is
Figures of a year ago show that
$81,000 was outstanding in 807 loans,
while those of two years ago point
out that 587 students held $55,000.
The increases are due, it is asserted,
to the fact that employment condi-
tions were bad in the summer of
1927 and during much of the last
school year, affecting both the stu-
dents and their parents. Wider
knowledge of the student loan funds
and a gradually increasing amount
available for student loans are also
held to be factors.
"Many students who planned to
work to earn at least part of the cost
of their expenses were unable to find
employment a year ago," Mr. Bursley
stated, "while others were affected
indirectly, being forced to borrow be-
cause their parents were in financial
Creation of the Brosseau Founda-
tioon, by which $23,000 is available
annually for a period of five years,
also helped swell the total. The ;

available last year for the first time,

of $21,500.

Players Present Shakespearian Comedy,
"As You Like It," In Modern Costume

A Review, by Jack Davis
Shakespeare in tuxedos and spike
heels is hardly snickered at any more,
nor considered an innovation; yet
only a small portion of the wary
summer theater public ventured to
Sarah Caswell Angell hall last night
for "the first production in America
in modern dress" of "Much Ado About
Yet it was amusing, if somewhat
frenzied in parts; and as in the case
of the best oloemargarine, after you
get used to the difference in wrap-
per you find the product pretty much
the same. Only the reference to
swords where there obviously are
none on the gentlemen concerned,
and the use of the word "naughty"-
whose connotation has changed a bit
in some three centuries-gave some
slight pause to the listener's credul-
As in the case of "Comedy of Er-
rors" last summer, the cast has a
good time, Robert Henderson steps
for the nonce from naive youth into
uncouth comedy (his two stock
roles)-and the advanced publicity is
execrable. I refer to the advertising
of "The Comedy of Errors" as

"Shakespeare's Rioutous Rhapsgidy
in Blue," and to the announcement
of the current offering in modern
dress and out with the broadside
query, "How do you like your
Shakespeare?" If the question were
relevant at all, the only answer would
naturally be, "Well done."
Of the acting in detail, more in a
later review. In passing it is to be
noted that Miss Kelly and Mis Bron-
son handle their comedy-as Beat-
rice and Margaret-with verve and
wit; that Elberta Trowbridge,
though not-I think-of the stature
and complexion which Shakespeare
intended for Hero, yet fills that role
charmingly and accurately enough;
that Samuel Bonell as Don John has
the proper bastardly leer, and that
his acting is agreeably smooth. Rob-
ert Henderson, though he bungled his
lines a bit last night, and overplayed
his part now and then, is really very
funny as Dogberry, the prototype of
our bucolic arm of the law.
There does not seem to be any ex-
cuse for the music offered in connec-
tion with this production, except for
the few snatches of not unpleasant
lyric sung from the stage.
