Four Times Around World For
Eclipses Is Curtis' New Record


Wbrk of Selecting Squad
Altered as 10 Drop Out
Because of Ineligibility
41 Already Picked
For Fall Practice
Michigan Coach Expected
To Point for Northwest-
ern Game on Oct. 8
The elimination of ten likely can-
didates because of low grades in the
classroom has altered, the task of
Head CoaZh Harry Kipke in select-
ing the 1932 University of Michigan
football team. Kipke already has
decided on 41 of the 55 or 60 ath-
letes who will be invited back for
early practice Sept. 15 and will make
15 or more additions to the invita-
tion list in August.
The fact that the Wolverines must
play Michigan State and Northwest-
ern on" the first two Saturdays of the
season makes itsappearthat the
boys ;who wll see actual varsity
service will be chosen early in the
practice season and given intensive
training for the opening of the
campaign. Michigan State will bei
played Oct. 1 and the Wildcats Oct.
8. "There is division among the fans
as to which of these games is more
important, but Kipke and his staff
want a victory over Northwestern
and probably will point for that
game, hoping to. take State in stride.
The Spartans tied Michigan in 1930
and 1931.
Three Lettermen Out
Kipke announced today that ten
promising at -tes cannot be count-
ed on this fall because of scholastic
troubles. Tey are: centers, Jerome
Emling, sophomore, Erie, Pa.; Ed
Smith, s o p h o m o r e, Muskegon
Heights, and Leo Winston, senior,
Washington, D. C.; tackles, Claire
Purdum, junior, Beaver, Pa.; Don
McGuire junior, South Haven; Carl
Cari sophomore, Saline, ad Duval
Goldsmith, senior, Christiansburg,
Va.; guard, John Good, sophomore,
Holland; end, Charles Stone, junior,
Detroit; quarterback, Estil Tessmer,1
senior, Ann Arbor. Purdum, Gold-I
smith and Tessmer are letternen,
and all ten would have been invited
back for early practice had theyI
been eligible.-
Kipke is maintaining an openI
mind regarding the rating of his
players until he has a look at them1
in September, but if Michigan hadI
faced State or Northwestern't tdayI
the critics' first choices for the Wol-j
verine lineup would be: ends, Wil-I
liamson and Petoskey; tackes, Aus-
tin and Wistert; guards, Kowalik1
and Savage; center, Bernard; quar-
terback, Fay; halfbacks, Everhardus
and Newman;. fullback, Regeczi.
First substitutes would be: ends,i
Ward, Cox and Yost; tackles, Cant-
rill, Hildebrand- and Chapman;I
guards, Marcovsky, Borgman, Cant-
rill and Fug; center, Ford; quarter-
backs, Newman and Westover; half-
backs, Heston, De Baker and Val-
maroli; fullbacks, Oliver, Meldman
and Schmidt.
Good Fullback Needed
Kipke will be looking for a full-
back who can back up the line of
defense. Jack Heston may win aI
regular place because- of 'his'- ability
to do this. Petoskey may be shifted
to fullback, in which case Willis1
Ward would be the logical choice
for left end. Cecil Cantrill rates as
both a tackle and guard, and New-
man as a signal caller or balltot-I
ing halfback.]
Letermen on the present invita-
tion list are:
Center-Charles Bernard, Benton
Guards-John Kowalik, Chicago,
and Cecil Cantrill, Lexington, Ky.
Tackle-Francis Wistert, Chicago.
Ends-Ivan Williamson, Toledo,
O.; Ted Petoskey, St. Charles; Rod-
erick Cox, Birmingham, and Field-
ing H. Yost, Jr.;' Ann Arbor.

Four times around the world to
chase a shadow is the unusual rec-
ord of Prof. Heber D. Curtis, head
of the astronomy department.
The shadow is that which the
moon casts on the earth during the
few seconds of a solar eclipse; Ten
times Dr. Curtis has travelled to the
furthest corners of the world to ob-
serve this phenomenon-three times
to Sumatra, and at other times to
Russia, Mexico, and Labrador. He
will leave about the end of July for
his eleventh trip of this kind.
This time it is to Freyburg, Me.,
that he will journey to watch the
"shadow" that occurs about 3:30
o'clock on the afternoon of August
31. The "shadow" will last in total-
ity for slightly less than 99 seconds.
The expedition will travel to
Maine through a grant from the
Faculty'*Research fund ,committee.
Most spectacular of the instru-
ments that Dr. Curtis will take on
the expedition is a huge 40-foot
camera. The entire apparatus is
built stationary and pointed towards
the place in the heavens at which
the eclipse will occur. Two men
work inside the camera, and it is
hoped to secure about six or seven
plates during the eclipse. Baldwin
Curtis, the son of the head of the
expedition, who will be a junior 'at
the University next year, will be in
charge of the work in the camera.
A coronal interferometer, using
what are probably the largest etalon
plates in ;the world, will be operated
by Dr. Curtis, himself, in an attempt
to secure information about the

wave-length and composition of
coronium, the principal chemical
component of the solar corona
which may be observed only during
the few moments of total eclipse.
The element, Dr. Curtis said, "is
probably some more familiar ele-
ment masquerading under strange
colors." 1
A two-prism flash spectrograph
and an infra-red flash spectrograph
complete the equipment, which will
be used during the few precious sec-
onds that the eclipse endures. An
attempt will also be made to secure
motion pictures of the phenomena
by the donors of the McMath-Hul-
bert observatory.
An expedition from the Lick ob-
servatory will also be , located at
Freyburg, and groups from a num-
ber of American observatories will

First Intramural Series of
Swimming Races to Last
Entire Summer
The first organized Intramural
swimming program for men students
has been completed under the direc-
tion of R. T. Webster, supervisor of
Intramural sports, and will be in-
augurated next week. Free style,
back-stroke, breast-stroke, and med-
ley races will be held.
Each event will be composed of
several heats, Webster said, and
probably only one event will be held
each day. The races will be held in
the Intramural building p ol at 3,
o'clock on Mondays, Wednesdays,
and Fridays.
The program will last the entire
summer. Each man is eligible to
enter any number lof events desired.
The scores will be posted on a large
chart after each heat and will be
added up to decide the winner after
competition is completed.
An added attraction for Summer
Session athletes will be the try-outs
each Tuesday and Thursday after-
noons at 3 o'clock for Sigma Delta
Psi, national honorary athletic fra-
ternity. These trials will also last
throughout the summer.

Hoover Attends Deans'
Reception-In Disguise
President Alexander G. Ruth-
ven "went national" at the dean's
reception at the League Friday
One of the charming young
ladies who had been delegated to
introduce students to those brav-
ing the receiving line became just
a bit mixed in her terminology,
and unwittingly introduced sev-
eral awed students to President
Ruthven as "President Hoover."
Furthermore, one Mr. Work, a
student, found himself the proud
possessor of another name during
the course of his sojourn down
the line. His name evoluted to
Mr. Labor, and hence to all of
the University's celebrities he took
on this new air of importance.

well 4ualifled to present his views;
on the recognition of Russia ashe ,

Senator Brookhart has been active
in politics for years. In 1920 he,
entered the Senatorial race but was
defeated by Sen. A. B. Cummings,
after a bitterly fought campaign. He
was appointed to fill the place left
vacant by the resignation of Sen.,
William S. Kenyon, in 1922, how-
ever, since that time he has served
continuously. As he was defeated in
the recent primaries, he will go out

Senate Relief
Bill Approved
By 43-31 Vote
Measure Is 'Expected to
Get President's Veto;
With a veto message awaiting it at
the White House, the $2,100,000,000
unemployment relief bill emerged
from Congress today bearing the
controversial provision for loans to
Final congressional approval was
given the measure when the Senate,
adopted the conference report by a;
vote of 43 to 31 after little more
than an hour's debate.
Senate Democrats rallied to the,
support of their vice-presidential,
candidate, Speaker Garner, in his
conflict with President Hoover over
whether loans should be made to in-
dividuals, but prepared to give way
for a compromise bill after the vote.
The votes in both House and Sen-
ate indicated insufficient strength
to pass the bill over a veto.
These loans would be made by
the Reconstruction Finance Corp.
from a fund of $1,500,000,000 creat
ed under the bill.
Other provisions would set up a
$300,000,000 fund under the Recon-
struction Corp. for loans to States
for direct relief of the jobless, and
appropriate for a $322,000,000 public
construction program.
The vote was 43 to 31.
There is little likelihood, however;
that President Hoover will have an
opportunity to veto the bill today.
It has yet to be signed by Speaker
Garner and, the.House is in recess
over the week-end. He must sign
it during a session of the House.
Twenty-nine Democrats v o t e d
with 14 Republicans to approve the
conference report in .the Senate.
Twenty-five Republicans, five Demo-
crats and Shipstead, Farmer-Labor-
ite, opposed adoption of the report.
Rep. Snell, of New JYork, the Re-
publican leader, told President Hoo-
ver today he believed a new relief
bill could be passed by Congress
within three days. He said there
would be no need for holding long
hearings on a new bill.
Just before the vote Senator Bor-
ah, of Idaho, indorsed the provision
for loans to individuals.
"I do not understand why there
should be any serious objection-
leaving aside for the moment the'
matter of Administration-to loan-
ing to individuals or private cor-
porations in view of the policy
which has been inaugurated and
the program that has been initiated
already under the Reconstruction
Finance Corp.," Borah said.

For Signing of Pact by
World Powers
U. S. Unwilling
To Revise Debts
Statement Is Issued That
Government Has Not Re-
vised Policy
LAUSANNE, Switzerland, July 9.
-(AP)-The reparations agreement
scaling down Germany's bill from an
original $64,000,000,000 to approxi-
mately $712,500,000 was initiated to-
day by delegates of the leading pow-
ers and almost before the ink was
dry preparations were started for a
world economic conference authoriz-
ed in the treaty.
Convinced that a late stride had
been made toward putting Europe's
economic house in order, Prime Min-
ister Ramsay MacDonald of Great j
Britain, whoseIndomintable deter-
mination was largely responsible for
the agreement, turned his attention
to adjusting the agreement of Lau-
sanne to world problems. That
means bringing in the war debts of
$11,000,000,000 owed to the United
States. J
At the ceremony of signatures, the
Prime Minister made a speech in
which he declared in effect that the
United States would have to recon-
sider those debts.
U. S. Not to Revise Debts '
Official intimations that the United
States was willing to consider fur-
ther war debt cuts in view of the
new agreement sharply curtailing
German reparations ppyments met
with stern protest today on capitol
The expressions of resentment
continued despite a state depart-
ment declaration that the Ameri-
can government's policy had under-
gone no change since- President
Hoover's moratorium statement of
June) 20, 1931, which opposed debt
cancellation but said capacity to
pay should be he basis for fixing
the amount/of the debts.
Takes tException to Reports
Taking exceptipn to published re-
ports that the state department had
expressed a willingness to consider
additional debt curtailments, Sen.
McKellar (D., Tenn.), introduced a
resolution asking the President if
this were true and if so, by what
authority any government represen-
tative was active in the matter.
Administration senators also ex-
pressed opposition to any further
reductions of the $11,000,000,000 war
obligations owed this country, and
indicated no such move was contem-
plated by the administration at this

A close-up on the stars and dfaoon
will be given students who visit the
Observatory next week, according- to
Dr. Heber Curtis, professor of as-
tronomy and director of the Obser-

Visitors will view the uarge tele-
scope, used only for takirg pictures
of the heavenly bodies, and also the
smaller telescope through w h i c h
they will be permitted to look di-
rectly at the celestial bodies. The
larger of the two is used by Univer-
sity astronomers in conducting re-
search work.
"The whole building will be open
for the students," Dr. Curtis said
last night, "and we will do our best
to explain the various instruments
and the work we are doing here."
Another set of instruments which
will be of particular interest to the
students, he said, is the earthquake
instruments employed in determin-
ing the location and extent of the
earth's movements.
Observatory night is scheduled for
next Monday, Tuesday, and Wed-
nesday evenings, Cards must be ob-
tained by those planning to attend
from the Summer Session office.
Students must go on the nights as-
signed, and none will be permitted
