KANSAS CITY, July 10. - (') -
Middle America today counted its
heat dead.for the year at 31 as the
sun beat down mercilessly, with no
relief in prospect.
The toll by states, compiled un-
officially by the Associated Press,
showed:
Oklahoma 8, Texas 7, Minnesota

and Illinois and Iowa 1 each.
Temperatures sireaked past the

Maxima yesterday were up to 109.
Today was as hot.
Thousands swarmed to parks and
yards tonight - seeking sleep on
benches, blankets and cots. Swimming
pools were jammed.,
Np Relief In Sight
No relief was seen by A. M. Ham-
rick, Kansas City Federal meteorolo-
gist. The outlook was for continued
fair and warm. Scattered thunder-
showers might bring temporary re-
spite here and there, he said, but the
area responsible for the heat showed
no inclination to move on.
In addition to those stricken by
heat, many drowned seeking relief
in streams and ponds.
At Fort Worth, Tex., when the
official thermometer registered 104
degrees, Weather Observer Paul Cook
tested the pavement. The mercury
shot up to 132.

Of Advances
In Astronomy
Motion Picture Method Of
Celestial Photography Is
Educational Gain
Lake Angelus Has
SpecialEquipment
Stationary Pictures Are
Improved Upon Because
Of Apparent Motion
Characterizing the motion picture
method of celestial photography as
ohe of the greatest educational ad-
vances astronomy has ever known,
Prof. Heber D. Curtis, chairman of
the astronomy department and direc-
tor of the University Observatory, yes-
terday delivered an illustrated lecture,
the tenth of the Summer Session lec-
tures, in the Natural Science Audi-
torium.
The one telescope in the world cap-
able of celestial photography by the
motion picture method is owned by
the University of Michigan and sta-
tioned at its divisional astronomy
camp at Lake Angelus, about two and
one-half miles north of Pontiac. The
fully-equipped observatory was pre-
sented to the University by its build-
ers and inventors, Mr. McMath and
Mr. Hulbert.
The motion picture method, as ex-
plained by Professor Curtis, requires
that films of the speedily-moving but
far-away object be taken at definite
time intervals and then incorporated
into motion pictures so that each film
occupies one sixteenth of a second, the
regular motion picture rate. The
films he displayed proved the results
of this invention; that the observer
visualizes celestial bodies as moving
objects in contrast to stationary bod-
ies, one of the principal objectives
of astronomers.
"Astronomy is not fixed," he said.
"It is the study of tremendous, mov-
ing masses. Text pictures leave a sta-
ti oflajnressi gn inewin tho
leaves the impression e mcees
tial bodies are ever moving. Move-
ments that actually take six or eight
hours can be compressed into a few
minutes of motion picture photog-
raphy."
Prof. Curtis suggested that the sci-
entific advancements brought about
by this invention might be even
greater than the educational advance-
ments.
The principal scientific develop-
ment of the invention is the device
which keeps the camera's eye on the
ever-moving celestial body.
Professor Curtis displayed motion
pictures of several astronomical bod-
ies. Jupiter and Saturn, although
photographed, remain unclear be-
cause of their queer typography.
Eclipses, particularly difficult to ob-
tain in motion-picture form, because
the totality of time they have existed
since the creation of the world has
been only 61 minutes, were shown
with remarkable clarity. These pic-
tures were obtained by a staff of Uni-
versity astronomers during the eclipse
last fall.
This new method has been respon-
sible for the first photographical rec-
ord of sun spots(taken with the
spectroheliokinematogiaph), and the
first record of solar bombs, a group
of clouds rapidly projected from a
celestial body.

WASHINGTON, July 10. - (P) -
The Detroit Tigers' winning streak
was broken at 10 games today by the
Washington Senators, although the
Tigers chased five runs across the
plate in the ninth inning and had
two more on base when the final out
was made. The score was 12-11.
The idle Yankees gained a half-

Washington practically put the
game on ice in the first inning with
a seven-run barrage that drove Tom-
my Bridges to the showers. Joe Sul-
livan, who releived him, had no con-
trol and proved equally ineffective.
After two doubles, a pair of singles,
and an error had let in five Senator
runs, Sullivan came to the mound to
let in two more on a single and four
consecutive walks.
Behind a good lead, which was
built up to 12 to 6 by the time the
ninth inning rolled around, Whitehill
pitched satisfactory ball.
,Then Gehringer slammed a home
run over the right field wall, Green-
berg followed with a double against

DETROIT, July 10.--(A'})-Mer-
ton Ward Goodrich, confessed slayer
of 11-year old Lillian Gallaher, in-
formed his attorney today that he
wanted to submit himself to science
"as a human guinea pig."
Goodrich, who startled the prose-
cutor and court attaches yesterday,
with a plea of not guilty, when called
up for a formal hearing on a murder
charge in Circuit Court, was brought
back to court today to hear his trial
date set for July 17.
After leaving the court room he sent
a pencilled note to Harry T. Hanley,
named by the court as his defender.
"I realize that this is the most hor-
rible crime that has ever been Ynown,"
said the note. "While I am positive it
was not me that did it but the other
side of my life, I would like to dedicate
my body to science."
"I realize much can be learned by
study after death, but I believe still
more could be learned by submitting
myself as a human guinea pig to
science for any experiment they may
wish to make.
"I have no thought of gain other
than to see some other young man as
unfortunate as myself saved from a
fate such as mine."

By EDWARD LAUTH
The conventional educational sys-
tem is out of touch with 'life, and
changing conditions the world over
are presenting a challenge to the
schools which must be met.
These two conclusions are among
the many that were brought out at
the first sessions of the Sixth Annual
Summer Educational Conference
which opened yesterday at the Union.
The first meetings were marked by
an overflow crowd and an animated
discussion followed some proposed re-
forms in education made by Prof.
James K. Pollock of the political sci-
ence department.
Dean James B. Edmonson of the
School of Education opened the con-
ference which has for its general topic
"American Education in the Future -
A Series of Predictions." Dr. S. A.
Courtis gave the keynote address in
his talk on "The problem of Redi-
recting Education as a Progressive
Sees It."
Was On Advisory Board
Dr. Courtis, who has served on the
advisory board of the Progressive
Association, in his interpretation of
the progressive movement stated that
"the conventional educational system
is hopelessly out of touch with life."
- -h&cfrant'e-d tIle
world today, such as the disappear-
ance of frontiers, the development of
science, the evolution of the machine,
the specialization of the individual,
and the increasing importance of pos-
sessive rewards in our scheme of life
present a challenge to the schools.
In order to properly and adequately
meet their obligation the schools must
conserve and develop the individuality
of the student as a social being, de-
velop him into a problem solver in-
stead of merely asking him to mem-
orize certain things, and to help him
interpret world experiences in terms
of human problems.
Ability or Teachers Important
Dr. Raleigh Schorling, who fol-
lowed Dr. Courtis and had for his
topic "Trends in the Professional
Preparation of Secondary School
Teachers," prefaced his talk with
the statement that any changes made
in education will depend upon the
ability and training of teachers.
Dr. Schorling urged a more thor-
ough preparation of teachers and in-
dicated several lines it should fol-
low. The scope of training of a pro-
fessional teacher was outlined to in-
clude a comprehensive and wide
knowledge of subject matter, training
in the philosophy and history of edu-
cation and in educational research,
training in case work of a mental hy-
gienist and social worker, and wide
experience in directed or practice
teaching.
Speaking on this last point, Dr.
Schorling advocated that a period of
interneship under the guidance of
an experienced teacher be applied in a
few centers.
A period of discussion, held after
the close of the two talks of the
morning, was led by Dr. Wm. Clark
Trow of the School of Education.
Pollock Opens Discussion
Dr. Pollock, professor of political
science, was the first speaker at the
afternoon session. His topic was "A
Governmental Approach to School
Administration,''and it was one of his
suggestions for change in school gov-
ernment which evoked the discussion
which marked the afternoon session.
Speaking of necessary fundamental
changes in the structure of our school
government, Dr. Schorling stated that,
"the idea of having separate boards
of education for the schools is wrong,
outmoded, and should be eliminated."
He proposed that, because of the lack
of interest on the part of voters in
school elections and the "devastat-
ing results" therefrom, the school
