Regulated Monopoly Approved
as Avoiding Duplication
"Our astounding industrial ad-
vance of the last twenty years finds
one of its chief bases upon the uni-
versal supply of electric light and
power," declared Prof. Alfred H.
Lovell of the Engineering school in
an address yesterday. "It has re-
lieved our workers from the physi-
cal fatigue of production by dis-
placing muscular force with electric
The increase in use of power
from the 2.1 h.p. in 1911 to 4.7 h.p.
per worker in 1927 tells some of
the story, according to Professor
Lovell, and the net work of power
lines from intra-company to inter-
company power lines tells some
more of the story. In Michigan
alone, said Professor Lovell, power
and light utilities built 1,227 miles
of lines and connected 5,359 new
farm customers last year, and this
year as much line will be construct-
ed and 6,000 new customers added,
Opens Better Locations I
"Decentralization of industry,
choice of more efficient locations,
joint operation of agriculture and
industry become possible," Prof es-
sor Lovell said, "by the spreading
of electrical transmisison lines."
Growth of a large central station
increases efficiency in generation of
current, according to Professor
Lovell, as is shown by the use of
three to seven pounds of coal per
kilowatt hour for small industrial
plant boilers, when the large cen-
tral stations use only one pound of
"Duplication of investment in
transmission and distribution is to
be avoided by supplying electric
service by a regulated monopoly,"
Professor Lovell declared, "and
unification of geographically relat-
ed concerns makes for economy in
financing, management and engi-
Increase in distribution cost is
offset by the lowering of produc-
tion costs and some extensions do
not contribute proportionally to the
investment, was the opinion of Pro-
fessor Lovell. Switch board cost is
not the total cost of power, he said.
The story of the size and efficien-
cy of generating machines is a con-
tinuous story of increase since the
building of Edison's 1,200 h.p. Pearl
Street plant in New York in 1882,
Professor Lovell showed, to the pro-
jected complete installation of the
United States government develop-
ment at Muscle Shoals.
University Grants Gould Leave
for Work on Antarctic Map.
Prof. Laurence M. Gould of the
geology department will be absent
on leave from the University for
another year, according to an an-
nouncement made yesterday by
Prof. William H. Hobbs. Professor
Gould returned to Ann Arbor re-
cently after a leave of two years
spent with Commander Byrd's ex-
pedition in the Antarctic.
The additional period was grant-
ed, Professor Hobbs said, in order

office in the Biltmore hotel, New
York, supervising the preparation
of a map of the Antarctic regions

tion. His work will involve reduction
of airplane photographs taken in
the polar section to map scale.
Besides this work, Professor Gould
will present several lectures on the

Hobbs said. He will also begin work

WILCOX AT TACKED
IN DETROIT PAPER
Free Press Charges Police Head
Inactive on Buckley Case.
(By Associated Press)
DETROIT, Aug. 7. - The Free
Press says tonight that with all
signs pointing to a 23 grand jury
investigation into Gerald E. "Jerry"
Buckley's slaying, "an amazing ac-
cumulation of evidence" had been
assembled to show that the policel
department had failed to co-oper-
ate with other law enforcemen,
agenciesuhere and elsewhere and
that solution of the crime is no~
nearer than when it was committed
This evidence, the paper says,
shows "that the police department,
under Commissioner Thomas C.
Wilcox, has failed to co-operate
with the prosecutor's office, failed'
to notify the police of other cities
of the murder, and is actually no
closer to the solution of the crime.)
Inquiries made by the Free Press
to the police of Cleveland, Chicago,
New York, Toledo, Philadelphia,
Miami, Kansas City, and St. Louis
brought the reply in each case that
the Detroit police department not'
only did not ask aid in the search
for the slayers of Buckley, but that'
it never even sent any official not-
ice of the murder to any of these
cities," the paper said.

waters sweeping through the Mexi-
can border towns of Nogales, Son-
ora, and Nogales, Ariz., early today
caused three known deaths with 40
1 persons reported missing.
Bearing reports of the number of
dead were received as bands of
Mexican soldiers and bewildered
citizens searched the debris of
wrecked adobe homes. Salvador,
Escrada, commandant of Mexican
police across the line, said only
three bodies had been found.
The bodies of two women were
found on the Mexican side of the
line and the body of a man was
discovered near the bridge on the
American side. None was identified.
Confusion was so widespread at
the climax of the flood that reports
of missing persons could not be
checked. The screams of women,
caught in buildings of the lower
areas, arose above the roar of the
flood water. Both cities were dark1
as power lines went out of commis-
sion. Telephone service stopped.
At 3 a. in., the chief of police of
Nogales, Sonora, made his way to
the American side and said he had
received reports of at least two
dozen deaths but could not con-
firm them. He said 25 children had
been reported missing in the Mex-
