Metal Fatigue
Authority Talkst
At Symposium
Moore Summarizes Lab
Work; Nadai Reviews
Theories About Creep
A summary of the extensive work
carried out in the University of Il-
linois laboratories at Champaign,
Ill. on the Fissures in Railroads was
the subject of the talk given yester-
day morning by Prof. H. F. Moore
before the sixth weekly meeting of
the engineering mechanics sympo-
sium on the properties of metals in
the West Engineering Building.
. He pointed out that the fissures
are initiated beneath the surface of
the rails due principally to the con-
tinued rolling of flat and out-of-
round wheels over them. However,
the influence of bending stresses in
this study was found to be negligible.
Rolling causes cold working of the
rail surface and the failure is there-
fore deeper in the rail than might be
expected on the basis of theoretical
considerations of maximum shearing
stresses. "Shadow marks" in the rail
due to trapped and later expelled
hydrogen indicated the effect of a
"stress raiser," he explained. This

type of failure in rails cost the rail-
roads about $2,000,000 annually.
Dr. Moore was the first person in
the United States to do research on.
the fatigue of metals although there
was some previous work done in Ger-
many. One of the world authorities on,
the subject at present, he is in charge,
of several laboratories at the Univer-
sity of Illinois.
A review of the theories of "creep" ,
of metals furnishedthesubject of ;
the second talk of the morning, given;
by Dr. A. Nadal, a foremost authority
in plasticity, now vorking at the
Westinghouse Research Laboratones
in East Pittsburgh, Pa.
.xThe matter is largely dependent on
experimentation and rational inter-
pretation, he explained. Creep is a
function of stress, temperature and
time with the involved factor of ve-
locity of load application. He then
expressed this relationship mathe-
matically. An analysis of various
creep datd was one of his topics and

Ratification Of Truce By
Both Warring States Is
Seen As Still Indefinite
"Thesigning of andagreement be-
tween Paraguay and Bolivia con-
cerning the disposition of the long
fought over territory of the Gran
Chaco last Monday is an important
but by no means the final step in the
settlement of the 50 year old bone of
contention between the two nations,"
Prof. Arthur S. Aiton of the history
department declared yesterday.
The optimism of the press, he
emphasized, in heralding the signing
of the treaty as the ending of a
struggle, which has nearly ruined two
countries, is not entirely justified as
there are still several factors that

may fan the sparks of the Chaco dis-
pute into a blazing issue.'
The most important factor is the
necessity of popular ratification of
the. treaties in both Paraguay and
Bolivia. Although the agreement has
been signed by representatives of
both "nations, Professor Aiton said,
ratification by a popularly-elected
assembly in Bolivia and a popular
plebiscite in Paraguay is also re-
It is quite possible that the treaty
may fail to secure ratification, especi-
ally in Paraguay. Two of the Para-
guayan representatives to the peace
conference in Buenos Aires flatly re-
fused to sign the document, including
the influential Liberal candidate for
the presidency, Zubiz Arreta. In fact,

Efforts Since 1933 To Set
Basis For Allocation Of
Power Costs Revealed
Morgan Charges
Rates Inaccurate
KNOXVILLE, Tenn., July 23.-()-
Director David E. Lilienthal told a
joint congressional investigating com-
mittee today differences between en-
gineers and consultants over the basis
of the authority's yardstick power
rates had "serious consequences.
He added, however, the conflict
now appears to have been "wholly
innocent," asserting the friction re-
sulted from sharply varying theories
and methods of determining apprais-
als and valuations.
He did not elaborate on the "serious
consequences" but apparently re-r
ferred to delay which resulted in pre-
paring the report on allocations.
In bulky prepared statements, thet
witness described efforts since 1933
to establish a sound basis for alloca-
tions of costs as to power, flood con-
trol and navigation in the authority's
system of dams.
The report was partially delayed, he
said, by the disagreements betweenr
advisory committees composed largelyC
of university professors and TVA en- 1
gineers under Dr. Arthur E. Morgan,
recently ousted as chairman of the
Dr. Morgan, who precipitated thes
investigation by charges of misman-t
agement against directors Lilienthal1
and Harcourt A. Morgan, previouslyl
testified Lilienthal fixed the powerY
rates without his consent or knowl-
edge and referred to them once as
"little more than a guess."
Lilienthal denied the inference of
a question that possibly the alloca-
tions announced recently were shaped
to fit the power rates established in
He asserted "virtually all the steps"
taken in computing the rates were
taken with the knowledge and ap-
proval of the board "but probably

tonight that the waterfront of Kiu-

Czechoslovakia for liberal conces-

appeasement prospects.-
She thus fulfilled a pledge to a sud

Basil Cochrane Newton, British1
minister to Praha, saw Premier Mi-
lan Hodza for the second time in 24
hours after the surprise Anglo-Ger-
man talks in London and Anglo-
French discussions in Paris on the
Central European problem.
He carried out what were described
authoritatively as "certain assur-
ances" given by Prime Minister Ne-
ville Chamberlain yesterday to Dr.
Herbert Von Dirksen, German am-
bassador to London, on the use of
British influence with Praha in the
handling of -minority autonomy de-

National Boundaries
Lecture Tomorrow
"International Boundaries," will be
the subject of a lecture to be given
at 8 p. m. tomorrow in the small audi-
torium of the Graduate School by
Prof. Jesse S. Reeves of the political
science department.
The lecture is the fourth and last
in a series of public lectures by mem-
bers of the faculty of the Summer
Session in International Law, spon-
sored by the Carnegie Endowment
for International Peace. Other speak-
ers in the series included James
Brown Scott, director of the Division
of International Law' of the Carnegie

state visit of King George VI, and
Queen Elizabeth to France.
Germany's reassurances indicated a.
more conciliatory attitude on her part
toward the Czechoslovak minority
problem which now is the chief bar-
rier to Anglo-German friendship.
France called home her ambassador
to Berlin, Andre Francois-Poncet, in
the sudden spurt of diplomatic ac-
tivity over Czechoslovakia.
This gave rise to reports Germany
was seeking a four-power meeting
among Germany, Italy, Britain and
France to work out a solution of her
neighbor's problem.
Official quarters in London denied,
however, that "any new suggestion
was under discussion" in the conver-
sation Prime Minister Chamberlain
had witl' Von Dirksen.
French quarters also disclaimed
knowledge of such a proposal and
quickly voiced objections to any con-
ference on Czechoslovakia, which ex-
cluded the Czechoslovak government
and Soviet Russia.

Lum the All High School Clinic Band'
and the University Summer Session.
Band will present their first com-
bined performance of the year at
4:15 p.m. today, according to Prof..
William D. Revelli, director.
Victor J. Grabel, nationally known
conductor and composer from Chi-
sago, will direct the first half of the
program, and Professor Revelli, the
second half. Mr. Grabel will be hol-
ored by conducting the band in a
selection of his own composition,
"Fair Chicago," and a piece of music1
which he arranged to be played in
this country for the first time, "Li-
bussa Overture," from the opera "Li-
bussa," by Smetana. "Libussa Over-
ture," being an intensely patriotic se-
lection, was forbidden to be played
anywhere outside the Prague in
Czechoslovakia. However, now it has
been arranged and will be heard wide-
ly, Mr. Grabel said, it having been
placed op the all high school na-
tional band contest repertoire as a
required number.
The program for today includes the
"Libussa Overture," by Smetana;
"Jesu, Joy of Man's Desiring," by
Bach; "Elissa's Entrance Into the
Cathedral," by Wagner; "Moment
Musicale," by Schubert; and "Fair
Chicago," by Grabel, all played by
the Clinic Band with Mr. Grabel con-
Following a vocal solo by Mr. Ra-

Martin, the ex-minister who two
years ago led the first successful
unionization of a large portion of the
hitherto "open shop" automobile in-
dustry, has been promised a finish
fight by his opponents.

Charges Preferred By Martin
In a move without precedent in
American labor history, the Martin-
controlled executive board of the
UAW has summoned four interna-
tional vice - presidents, suspended
June 13, to trial tomorrow on charges
preferred by Martin.
Assertions, denied by the four, that
they conspired with Communists to
disrupt the union, will be prominent
at the trial. Martin called them
"stooges of the Communist Party";
they retorted that this was a "smoke
screen to divide, blind and confuse
the workers."
The suspended officers said; "The
members of our union will not be
deceived. Theirs will be the final
