o'clock in~ front of Angell haill, will
take the stuadents to Milford, 30
Miles north of, Ann Arbor, where a
1,268-acre laboratory for the carry-
ing out of exhaustive and scien~tific.
ally controlled tests on all makes of
automobiles has been constructed.
Amass Engineering Data
He~re the corporation maintains
ground engineers who constantly are
am~assing facts essential to the fur-
ther improvenment of America's
greatest luxury and necessity -the
a.utomobile! All kinds of roads have
been constructed on which to test
the cars. The University Party will
see auttos driven \over mud, dirt,
brick, gravel, tar-treated surfaces
anid concrete stretches as well as
over a one-mile stretch of Belgian
lockl designed to reproduce the ir-
regular bumpy condition of badly
surfaced highways.
At the 'proving ground, after pre-
liminary explanations by the en-
gieer-guide, the party Will board
special proving ground buses for a
comprehensive tour of the roadways.
Among the points of interest will be
roads of varying grades uo to 24
per cent; difficult curves and several
road-bed surfaces; the four-mile
concrete loop, where motor cars of
all competitive makes, as well as
General Motors automobiles, are
subjected to severe speed and en-
durance tests; the two straight-away
concrete roads; and the "bath tab,"
a depressed piece; of concrete built
for testing the effects of water on
the moving car. ,
Will Inspect Cars
A considerable number of E~uro-
pean motor cars will also be avail-
able for inspection.
The University party will return to
the campus about noon. Round trip
tickets are priced at $1, and may be
6btained in the office of the Sum-
mler Session. Students driving "their

WASHINGTON, July 13.-(AP)-
NatureI and the marines have made
a footbridge of the famous Rapidan
log where a President talked to. a
prime minister.
The story came out in around-
the-tea-table chat under whispering
trees and beside rushing 'waters,
when Mrs. Hoover was hostess on
the Rapidan to a group of Wash-
ington newspaper wom~en.
Guests at the Hoover mountain re-
treat, so 'twas said, were constant-
ly querying what log President Hoo-
ver sat upon to talk with Prime
Minister Ramsey MacDonald about
disarmament - conversations much
publicized in the. early days of
Rapidan.
Several logs had. been so honored,
but the question became so persist-
ent that Mrs. Hoover put it to the
President, and he was able to recall
one particular log.
When, he went to. point it out, a
spring freshet had come along and
placed it squarely across the Rap-
idan!? And the Marines, noting that
people were crossing on it, put up a
tope railing to help them along.
Thus the noted timber, as a foot-
log is doing its best to carry on a
"hands- across-the-sea" tradition.,
