Test Glacier
Thickness By
Use Of Echoes
I Belknap Will Employ His
Instrument In A1a s k a

Exploding small charges of dyna-

listening with an emplifled telephone
receiver for the echo from the bed

this summer to measure the thick-
ness of these ice rivers by Prof. Ralph
L. Belknap of the University of Mich-

Prof. Belknap's instrument, origi-
nally used for sounding ocean depths,
consists of a tape on which a moving
pointer marks half-second intervals,
actuated by a clock work and make-
and-break magnetic circuit. Also
wired to the circuit is the ear of the
outfit, a modified telephone receiver,
provided with radio tube amplifica-
A small explosive charge set off
near the receiver will be heard almost
instantly, interrupting the half-sec-
ond marks on the tape. Meanwhile,
the sound of the explosion will travel
down through the ice and be partially
reflected back on striking the earth or
bed rock. This echo will also be
picked up by the receiver, breaking
the regular tape markings again.
Knowing the elapsed time between
the two interruptions and the speed
with which sound travels through ice
will permit a quick calculation of the .
thickness of the glacier.
The new apparatus is expected to
operate with only a pound or less of,
explosive and will permit many tests
to be made in a day. The only pre-
vious attempts to measure glacier
thickness by similar means were those
of Wegener, German scientist who
lost his life in Greenland four yearsl
ago. Using seismographs similar to
those used to record earthquakes and
a 160-pound dynamite charge, he es-
timated some Greenland glaciers to be.

also went one over par on the fif-

and that fact collectors in general are
often poor in making use of their

Another feature of Dr. Billing's
findings was the fact that the men
were 48.7 per cent better than the
women in reasoning out problems
given, regardless of the subject, and
in spite of the fact that the intelli-

approximately equal. This supports

Carrying a towel thrust through
his belt and ranging down behind
like a tail to a kite, Lott tried for
everything in sight, doing several
tumbles and bounding to a popular
victory over the Italian No. 1 star.
When the crowd wasn't laughing at
Lott's antics, it was cheering him on.
The Jones-Hughes match devel-
oped into a comedy of errors, with
each player apparently bent on out-
doing his adversary. Hughes was
the wilder and lost.

essary for the solutions and the ques-
tions were also worded so that pre-
vious knowledge in the subjects would
be of little help.
Giving a preliminary true-false test
showed that the information taught
was well learned, or memorized, says
Dr. Billings. But on the problems
which required that the solutions be
reasoned out from this stock of in-
formation it became clear that those
who had memorized the facts best
were not necessarily most able to pick
out the details needed for a solution.
On the other hand, the high scoring
problem solvers, who included both
high and low persons on the knowl-
edge test, were able to pick out the
important facts and reach a solu-
tion equally well in any of the vari-
ous subjects.
"These tests reinforce the idea that
'intelligence' in humans is essentially
the ability to solve problems and that
many intelligence tests need to be
revised to test this capacity more and
emphasize less the tests of percep-
tion, memory, association, imagina-
tion, and muscular co-ordination,"
states Dr. Billings.
Abrams To Lecture
On Soviet Russia
A. Abrams, lecturer on Soviet Rus-'
sia, will again present to an Ann Ar-
bor audience motion pictures taken
on his recent trip to the U.S.S.R.
when he speaks tomorrow at 8 p.m.
in Natural Science Auditorium.
The films deal with several phases
of Russian life, particularly in ref-
erence to the developments under the
recently completed Five Year Plan.
Mr. Abrams, who has exhibited
similar pictures elsewhere through-
out the country, will accompany the
film with an explanatory lecture
based upon his personal experiences.
The movie and lecture are being
sponsored by the Michigan Vanguard
Club as a part of its summer pro-
gram. The club has announced the
intention of arranging a series of
programs dealing with modern social
problems to be offered during the
course of the Summer Session. There
will be no charge for Mr. Abrams',
350 Attend Education
School's First Assembly
Approximately 350 students and
faculty members of the School of
Education turned out for the school's
initial assembly, held yesterday in
University High School auditorium.
Prof. Calvin 0. Davis, secretary of
the School of Education, gave the
opening address of welcome. This was
followed with the presentation of va-
rious faculty members by Prof. J. B.
Edmonson, education school dean.
Announcements were made by sev-
eral organization leaders concerning
the school's extra-curricular activ-
ities for the Summer Session.

adequate for heavier and rougher
travel so a heavier sledge, covered
completely by wood was introduced
and found to be more successful. For
crossing the great openings in the
ice a combination sledge-canoe was
invented. This was an ordinary
framework of wood which could be
used on the flat ice surfaces and
when openings were encountered the
framework was covered with canvas.
The latest mode of transportation
to be used in the Antarctic region and
which, according to Professor Hobbs,
has proved highly successful, is the
motor driven "pusher type" sled.
Slides showing how the tremendous
ice pressure trapped the explorer's
ships were shown. One explorer over-
came this difficulty by building a spe-
cial wedge-shaped bottom on his ship
and when the ice began to press on
the boat it would rise out of the water
instead of being crushed.
The various types of abodes and
clothing used by the explorers were
described. Most of the clothing is
made of caribou or bear skins. The
English, according to Professor Hobbs,
prefer heavy woolens.
The failure of the dirigibles in the
polar region is due to the fact that
the framework of the ships are too
fragile and light for the rigorous cold.
Professor Hobbs believes that the
only dirigible that could be success-
ful in Antarctic exploration is the
all-metal type.
The auto-giro, in Professor Hobbs'
opinion, will be the method of trans-
portation in the polar region in the
future, because it can land or take-off
in a comparatively small area,
Besides the various honors he al-
ready holds and the titles he has re-
ceived to date, Professor Hobbs was
the recipient of another honor yes-
terday. He received a citation from
Soviet Russia ins the form of a cer-
tificate of honorary membership in
the State Russian Geographical So-
ciety and was signed by J. Schokalski,
honorary president and noted ocean-
ographer, and the president, N. Da-
The citation was dated May 29, but
arrived at the offices of the Univer-
sity only yesterday. It was presented
to Profesor Hobbs by Dr. Frank M.
Robbins, assistant to President Alex-
ander G. Ruthven.
The two summer dormitories, Bet-
sy Barbour House and Jordan Hall,
will hold their first house meetings of
the Sum'mer Session tonight. The
residents at Jordan Hall were enter-
tained at a "get-together" last eve-
ning to give the new sttidents an op-
portunity to get acquainted.

Students Eligible For
City Tennis Tourney
Summer session students will be
eligible to compete in the annual
city tennis tournament, it was an-
nounced yesterday by George Moe,
manager of the event.
Entries for the tournament
which attracted 246 players last
year, will be taken at the Moe
Sport Shop stores. A minimum
entry fee to insure high calibre
play through the use of good balls
and equipment, is to be charged.
The events planned include
men's singles and doubles, women's
singles and doubles, mixed doubles
and juniors.
Play in the tournament, which
it is planned will be run off in
10 days, will begin July 5.
