Rounding right angle curves at 45
miles an hour in coaches was just
one of the thrills to which the stu-
dents of the Summer Session were
treated on the annual excursion to
the General Motors proving grounds
As if to make the program of
thrills complete, the party mounted
the rim of the embankment at the
curve of the saucer-like speed bowl
as Cadillac sixteens pounded around
at the rate of 90 miles per hour on
trial runs.
Upon their arrival the University
party was first shown motion pic-
tures of all the tests to which the
cars are submitted, and were then
escorted by company officials in
coaches over the testing roads and
the speed trace.

PALO ALTO, Cal., July 16.-(AP)
--Ralph Metcalfe, Marquette univer-
sity negro, and Eddie Tolan, recent-
ly "the midnight express of the Uni-
versity of Michigan, ran one, two in
the 100-meter and 200-meter finals
of the American Olympic track and
field tryouts today.
Edwin T. Turner, University of
Michigan, qualified for the 200-met-
er Olympic team, running third.
Willis Ward, also of Michigan, was
eliminated when he tied for eighth
place in the broad jump.
In the 100-meter event Metcalfe
lead the dusky Detroiter by ascant
yard to chalk up a time of 10.6,
equalling the Olympic record, and in
the 100-meter he finished four feet,
ahead of Tolan. His time in this
event was 21.5 seconds, a tenth of
a second better than that of the
Olympic record.
Simpson is Third
The third place on the American
team in each event went to George
Simpson, Ohio State star, and the
result left favorites out of the two
events. '
In the 100-meter dash Frank Wy-
koff, Emmett Toppino, and James
Johnson finished in the order nam-
ed behind, Metcalfe and Tolan. In
the 200-meter Bob Kiesel, Hec Dyer,
and Johnson also ran in the order
Toppino and Johnson, however,
were assured places. on the Olympic
400-meter team.
Jean Venzke, of the New York
A.C., eastern favorite and world in-

Research Student
Gives 15 Century
Old Fabrics a Bath
Wasting fabrics! 1,500 years old is
all in a day's work for Dr. Lillian
M, Wilson, who is doing research
work here this summer in Greek and
Roman costumes and textiles. Miss
Wilson recently undertook to clean,
up some of the fabrics excavated by
the University of Michigan expedi-
tion to Egypt in 1924.
"These fabrics," explained Miss
Wilson, "were found at Karanis, one
of the Roman colonies at the time
the empire included Egypt. Those
fabrics were, so to speak, rags which
had been thrown away, and whtch
therefore were not taken by natives
who looted the place before the ex-
pedition arrived."
This collection of textiles, owned
by the University, is the only one
which cai accurately be dated from
the coins and papyri found at the
same time, something which is true
of no other similar collection, ac-
cording to Miss Wilson. She recent-
ly translated an old Greek papyrus
which told how the fabrics were
dyed. "In the main," she said, "veg-
etable dyes were used, but the in-
habitants sometimes utilized by-pro-
ducts from their copper smelting to
make green colors, as well as iron
rust for red."'
Miss Wilson then showed two
handbags, one of blue and yellow,
and another of red, which had been
beautifully embroidered. "They did
wonderful needlework," s h e said,
"although their plain sewing was
rather crude."
In addition to the handbags, there
were several specimens of tapestry
weaving and wool loop-weaving inl
brown, blue, yellow, orange, grey,l
and red.
Excursionists C
To See Byrd's
Famous Plane
Ford Airport, -Greenfield
Village Are Points to Be
Visited Wednesday
An exhibit of famous airplanes,
including the one in which Com-
mander Richard E. Byrd made his
epochal flight over the North Pole,]
will be viewed by students who make1
the seventh University excursion, on
Wednesday, to the Ford airport and
Greenfield village.
Adjacent to the airport, Henry'
Ford has constructed a typical cen-
tral Michigan town of four score
years ago. Here the students will
see the village green so dear to their
forefathers. The typical white stee-
pled church, the colonial-style town
hall, the red-brick school house, the
tavern, the country store, the tin-
type gallery, and even the black-
smith shop of years ago .will be seen.
Mr. Ford has also transferred
buildings and equipment to this
miniature community which are
connected with the inventions of
Thomas A. E d is o n-his original
Menlo Park laboratory, his library,
and his first Menlo Park factory.
The Ford airport is one of the
largest and most completely equip-
ped airports in America, according
to University engineers who have
highly recommended that Summer
Session students make the trip. It
includes two conrete runways, as
well as a complete field for landing
and taking off,, a dirigible mooring
mast, shops ahd service equipment,
hangars, and the plant for the as-
sembling of the Ford tri-motor, all
metal airplane.
Reservations for the tour must be
made before 5 o'clock Tuesday af-
ternoon in the office of the Summer

Session. Buses will leave at 1 o'clock
'Wednesday from in front of Angell,
hall, and the party will return about
5:45 o'clock. The bus fare will be
$1. Students driving their own cars
need no tickets.

Republicans to
Take Campaign1
Into Southeast,
To Make Intensive Drive
In Strong Democratic
States This Year
ATLANTA, July 16.-(AP)--Or-
ganizing for an intensive campaign
in the South this year, the Repub-
licans plan to carry their fight into
the hitherto rock-ribbed D~emocratic
States of Georgia, Mississippi and
South Carolina.
These States have been Demo-
cratic since reconstruction days
and the general elections in Novem-
ber have merely ratified Democratic
nominees for office. Even four years
ago, when Hoover broke the solid
South for the first time in many
years, Georgia, South Carolina and
Mississippi followed their traditional
Democratic tendencies. Mississi:pi
and South Carolina increased their
'Democratic majorities.
Democrats say the entire South
and the border states will give big;
majorities for Roosevelt and Garner'
in November, but the Republicans
dispute this and saythey not only
expect to hold the four, States of
Florida, North Carolina, Virginia
and Texas, which they captured in
1928, but hopeito add others to the
Hoover and Curtis column.
Thecampaign for the Republican
National ticket will be backed by
fights for Senatorial and Congres-
sional seats throughout the South
and, in many instances, for County
and State offices.
Mississippi and South Carolina
will have Republican candidates for
Congress in each district to oppose
the Democratic nominees. This will
be the first time in nearly half a
century that the 'Republican Party
in Mississippi has entered a candi-
date in each district.

Carr Assails Mooney Meeting
As Front for 'Red' Propaganda



"I was disgusted."
This, briefly, was the reaction of7
Prof. Lowell J. Carr, of the depart-i

Professor Carr said that he had

meeting was to concern the case of
Tom Mooney, convicted San Fran-
cisco bomber, but he added "it had

sion which resulted in the minds
of many people to the effect that the
Mooney case is connected with Com-
