GEOLOGISTS PLAN
TWO EXPEDITIONS
TO ARCTIC COASTS,
Meteorological Study on North-
West Coast of Greenland
to be Undertaken.
HOBBS DIRECTS TRIP
One Station to be Established
Above Arctic Circle; One
Far to South.
Two Michigan geologists, forming
the northern party of the Fourth.
Greenland expedition, will leave in
two weeks for the North, where
they will study atmospheric circu-
lation over the continental glacier.
The expedition is in charge of Pro-
fessor William H. Hobbs of the ge-
ology department, and is made pos-;
sible by a grant of $5000 from the
Carnegie Institution of Washing-
ton.
Mr. William S. Carlson, who has
already spent a year in Greenland
as assistant aerologist of the third
expedition, will be in charge of the
northern party of two men, which
is to be based on the Greenland
northwest coast near the Eskimo
settlement of Upernivik in latitude
73 degrees, about 7 degrees north of
the Arctic circle. Mr. Carlson will
be assisted by Max Demorest, an-
other student of the University.
Will Sail July 30
This party will sail from North
Sydney, Nova Scotia, on July 30th
o n t h e Canadian government
steamship, Beothis, which each
summer carries supplies and re-
placements to the stations of the
Canadian Northwest Mounted Po-
lice in the Far North of Baffin and
Ellesmere Lands, and this season
for the first time the ship is to
make port on the Greenland coast.
Mr. Carlson will take material
for construction of a small hut and
supplies of food sufficient for a
year. The pilot balloons, and other
scientific equipment for maintain-
ing a modern weather station, he
is taking with him, much of this
material loaned the University as
on earlier expeditions by the U. S.
Weather Bureau. Mr. Carlson's
party expects to return on a small
Danish vessel in the late summer
of 1931. The party will have a radio
short-wave receiver but no sender.
Schmeling To Leave Later
About a month after the depar-
ture of Carlson's party, Evans S.
Schmeling, who was also an as-
sistant aerologist at the Mount
Evans Greenland Station, will leave
Philadelphia August 13 for Ivigtut
in extreme south Greenland, where
he will set up a second weather
station for continuous observations
for the period of a year.k
CHINESE STUDENT
TELLS OF CAREER
Theresa Woo, Medical Student,
Outlines Travels.
"We are trying to modernize
China without extinguishing the
personality which individualizes
her," said Theresa Woo, of Peking,
China, who will enter the College
of Medicine in September.E
"China is rediscovering her na-
tionality", she averred. Education,

the underlying basis for realizing
her aims, has advanced rapidly
under James Yen, who simplified
the Chinese alphabet to one thous-
and characters. It is the object
of Chinese students studying
abroad to combine the best quali-
ties of foreign lands with the best
of China keeping in mind our tra-
ditions."
Miss Woo seems almost as en-
thusiastic about the United States
as she does about her own China.
Her childhood was spent in Rus-
sia, Germany, France, England,y
South America, the United States,
and China. For six years she at-
tended a French convent, San Jose
de Cluny, at Lima, Peru. It was
here that her own name of Woo
Ting was exchanged for Theresal
Woo. Beforereturning to China
for her secondary education, Missi
Woo studied at Holy Cross Acad-
emy, Washington, D. C. In China

(Special to The Daily)
Students at Camp Filibert Roth,
the summer quarters of the School
of Forestry and Conservation near
Munising, Michigan, have punctu-
ated their first two weeks with
trips to the Ruse headquarters of
the Lake States Forest Experiment
station, to the state forest fire
headquarters at Marquette, and
with a two-day demonstration and
practice period on filing cross-cut
saws under the supervision of a
representative of a large manufac-
turing company.
The visit to Ruse, a few miles
west of the camp, afforded oppor-
tunity for study of the large ex-
perimental areas' upon which the
United States Forest service is test-
ing selective logging methods and
the effect upon tree growth of
swamp drainage. The results of
slash disposal on logging areas by
fire and by lopping and scattering
were also observed under the guid-
ance of federal foresters.

Examination of modern forest
fire fighting equipment and of re-
cent weather and forest fire rec-
ords featured the trip to the state
forest fire headquarters at Mar-
quette, after which the students
were shown the fire breaks along
railroad rights of way constructed
through the co-operation of the
Conservation department and the
railway companies.
Doings of the camp are recorded
weekly in a new publication under
the editorship of William Jacobs.
The first number made its appear-
ance on July 5.
Officers of the camp student or-
ganization are Ted Coile '31F,I
Quentin Boerner '31F, and Gordon
Rayner '32. Rayner has charge of
the athletic program.
Prof. Robert Craig, Jr., is co-
operating in arrangements for the
annual meeting of the Upper Pen-
insula alumni of the University to
be held at the camp on August 9.

DAVIS LECTURES
AT CONFERENCE
Emphasizes Balance of Liberal1
and Professional Study
in Training.
PROGRAM IS OUTLINEDI
Professor Calvin O. Davis of the
School of Education, fourth speak-
er on the Afternoon Conference
series, yesterday addressed a group
of education students in the audi-
torium of University high school.
His subject was the "University's
Program for the Trainng of Tea-
chers."
"The question of adequate train-
ing for teachers of our secondary
schools", Davis stated, "resolves
itself into the problem of properly
balancing liberal and specialized
culture on the one hand and par-
ticularized professional training
on the other hand."
Davis went on to explain that
the ;School of Education seeks to
meet this problem by raising a
number of standards which rmust
be met by the candidate for the
teacher's certificate. Undergradu-
ates in that school, he pointed out,
must present 25 per cent more hon-
or points than hours of credit, and
must complete 124 hours on the
same basis before graduation.
Their study must be distributed'
over the three groups required by
the University, but they must
specialize in one major and one
minor teaching subject. Compul-
sory work in psychology and edu-
cation, and comprehensive exam-
inations insure the fitness of the
studen.t
"They must also," Davis stated,
"give evidences of good health, dis-
tinctive character and personality,
and pronounced teaching apti-
tudes and interests."
Davis is professor of secondary
education and secretary of the
School of Education.
Hudelson to Address
Education Conference
Prof. Earl Hudelson of the School
of Education will give the fifth ad-
dress on the Afternoon Conference
series at 4 o'clock this afternoon in
the auditorium of the University
high school. His subject will be
"Class Size and Pupil Achievement
in Secondary School." Hudelson is
professor of education at the Uni-
versity of Minnesota.

SENATORS NEAR
TREATY ACORD
Norris Will Withdraw Preamble
if Necessary; Reed Denies
Secret Entanglements.
RATIFICATION PROBABLE
(By Associated Press)
WASHINGTON, July 14. - An
agreement seemed assured tonight
among the London treaty advocates
on the Norris reservation and lead-
ers looked confidently to early rati-
fication of the naval limitations
agreement as a result.
Senator Norris, Rep., Neb., the
author of the reservation, said he
was willing to strike from his reso-
lution the preamble regarding the
failure of President Hoover to give
to the Senate all of the notes and
data relating to the London con-
ference.
His reservation provides that the
United States shall not be bound
by any secret agreements.
Inasmuch as President Hoover
and Senators Reed, Rep., Pa., and
Robinson, Dem., Ark., of the dele-
gation to London, had asserted no
secret understandings were involved
in the treaty, some administration
forces were opposing the reserva-
tion.
However, after a round of con-
ferences today, participated in by
Chairman Borah of the foreign re-
lations committee, Senators Reed
and Robinson and Watson of Indi-
ana, and McNary of Oregon, the
Republican leaders, a general un-
derstanding was reached tonight on
the modified Norris resolution.
OFFER EXCURSION
TO TESTGROUNDS
Students Will Visit General
Motors Proving Ground.
Reservations for the excursion to
the General Motors proving grounds
at Milford must be made before 6
o'clock this evening, according to
an announcement yesterday by
Carlton F. Wells, secretary of the
Summer Session. Tickets may be
procured at the offices of the Sum-
mer Session.
The party will leave the campus
at one o'clock tomorrow afternoon
Among the points of intdrest to be
visited at Milford will be the
straightaway where tests are made
of gasoline consumption, speedo-
meters, brake efficiency, and vibra-
tions. The speed loop, composed o
four miles of concrete road, where
various types of motors are tried
for speed and endurance; and road
of various grades, including som
as steep as 25 degrees from th
horizontal will be seen. At the prov
ing grounds laboratories, the part
will inspect the equipment for test
ing automobile devices which ar
still in the experimental stages.

Contribution.
"The Universe is one, and back
of it all is energy," said Prof. W.
Carl Rufus of the astronomy de-
partment, yesterday concluding his
lecture, "Exploring the Universe".
in which he gave his audience at
Natural Science auditorium a
whirlwind view of the sun, the
planets, the outlying nebulae, and
the tiny atom.
Conducting his lecture on a hy-
pothetical tour of the other worlds,
Professor Rufus spoke of a speed
of 186,000 miles a second (that of
light), which, he said, would take
one seven times around the earth
in a single second, to the sun in
eight and one-third seconds, and
past the newly discovered "planet" I
in six hours. But even at such a
speed, he stated, it would require
four and one-third years to reach
the nearest star.
Sirius Has Companion.
Sirius, the brightest star in the
heavens, Professor Rufus noted as
an interesting one because it did
not follow the way that astron-
omers once predicted for it. It
has since been discovered with
larger telescopes, he said, that Sir-
ius has a dark companion, 45,000
miles in diameter, with density
50,000 times that of water.
Passing in his tour to the region
of the spiral nebulae, Professor
Rufus spoke of Andromeda, a con-
stellation similar to our own gal-
actic system. If a new star ap-
pears in this group, he remarked,
the "news from the sky" reaches
the earth around 1,000,000 years
later.
Sun spots, according to Profes-
sor Rufus, are vast vortical storms,
wide enough to suck in the earth.
There is a magnetic phenomenon
about these storms which can now
be measured in intensity. An in-
teresting observation about the sun
is that on its surface are "promin-
ences" of hydrogen too hot to
burn. Changes in eruptive prom-
inences may be photographed.
During a solar eclipse, the promin-
ences may be observed easily.
Praises Spectroscope.
Quoting Keats' remark that
"Newton took the poetry out of the
rainbow", Professor Rufus stated
that spectrum analysis is one of
the greatest contributions to sci-
ence of the nineteenth century. By
the spectroscope it has been de-
termined that nearly 60 of the ele-
ments existing on the earth are al-
so in the sun. In fact, even the
abundance of the elements is sim-
ilar in the sun and the earth.

CHICAGO. July 14.-Ruth Hanna
McCormick, the first woman ever to
be nominated to the United States
Senate, told the Senate campaign
fund investigation committee that
what she terms "the patronage ma-
chine system" will remove from
senatorial primaries one of the
main causes of large campaign ex-
penses.
Her comment was part of a 7,000
word prepared statement which she
read at the opening of the inquiry
into her expenditures in defeating
Sen. Charles S. Deneen for the
Republican nomination last April.

Defending the expenditure of

spending of $67,214 by her friends
in her behalf, Mrs. McCormick in-

was "willing to believe" that her
opponent's campaign cost twice as
much.
Sen. Gerald T. Nye, chairman of
the committee, asked Mrs. McCor-

"Less than a century ago," said
Dean Sadler, in an interview, "the
steamships considered the height

"Research in engineering and
science, development of steel al-

of the reciprocating engine, have
made the large ship with its econo-

"and the experimentation with the
size of the ship has also increased
