Shull Speaks
On Changes
In Evolution
Speaker Relates History
Of Movement In Fifth
University Lecture
(Continued from Page 1)
Shull stated that some biologist be-
lieved that certain animals were col-
ored in such a manner so as to escape
the eye of its enemy, such as the rab-
bit, which changes its fur in the win-
ter to correspond to the environment.
A contradiction to this theory, how-
ever, as presented by Professor Shull,
practically eliminates this idea. "If
the theory of protective resemblance
is true then how do these same biolo-
gists explain the many other animals
whose coats are brilliantly hued, such
as the male birds of many species?"
In the mimicry theory the examples
cited were the flies which changed
their wing structures and appearances
so as to resemble a bee.
Despite these seemingly imagina-
tive ideas, Professor Shull believes
that the followers of Darwin lacked
imagination; in that they endeavored
Ito explain evolution only by visible
factors and could not see physiologi-
cal qualities. Even now, he stated, we
do not pay enough attention to physi-
ological factors.
It was 30 years before scientists
doubted the efficacy of the theory of
natural selection, according to Pro-
fessor Shull. "DeVries of Holland
doubted it and as a result found the
origin of changes in what he called
"These mutations were first thought
to be changes in animals to a larger
size but are now considered to be
changes of any size providing they
are inherited."
One of the principal objections to
mutations was that it left no place
for adaptation. Professor Shull would
explain this by offering for examina-
tion, migration, another source of
adaptation. It is his idea that, for ex-
ample, a parasitic animal which has
lost his digestive tract would migrate
and begin to live off an animal that
had a digestive tract, even though the
parasitic animal may have been at
one time a free living animal.
Dealing next with the question
"what causes mutations," Professor
Shull stated that the exact cause is
not known but that it is known that
mutations are not produced from en-
vironment and that it is possible to
produce them artificially by X-ray.
"The protoplasm or the structure of
hereditary characteristics will deter-
mine what kind of mutation lies with-
in the chromosomes."
Concluding his lecture, Professor
Shull stated that "I am hopeful that
a new outlook toward evolution will
be formulated with natural selection
as a foundation."
Insull Denies Guilt
On Federal Charge
CHICAGO, July 2. -(/P) -Samuel
Insull, deposed public utilities czar,
today entered a formal plea of not
guilty of charges of using the mails
to defraud in connection with the
collapse of the Corporation Securities
Co. of Chicago, one of the bankrupt
Insull concerns.
Insull, sun-tanned and appearing
more healthy than in previous court
appearances, remained seated at the
counsel table as his attorney, Floyd
E. Thompson, made the plea before
Federal Judge James H. Wilkerson.
Thompson waived a reading of the

arguments were expected to last most
