varsity wrestling team.
Sigma Delta Psi is a national hon-
orary athletic fraternity, and has
chapters at 51 colleges and universi-
ties throughout the country. Both
freshman and upperclassmen are eli-

out for this fraternity should ask for.

Westinghouse Mechanics Expert
Discusses Recent Fatigue Study

By BETSEY ANDERSON
Centering his talk around the
growth of fatigue cracks propagated
through materials, R. E. Peterson,
manager of the mechanics division of
the Research Laboratories of Wes-
tinghouse Electricity and Manufac-
turing Co. spoke on some recent de-
velopments in fatigue study yester-
day morning before the third weekly
meeting of the applied mechanics
Symposium on the properties of met-
als held on the third floor of the West
Engineering Building.
Single crystal structures were dis-
cussed and the fatigue cracks in poly-
crystaline materials were shown in
slides. He also showed the relation-
ship between stress concentration
factors gotten by means of theoretical
considerations and photo-elastic pho-
tographs and the actual concentra-
tion factors gotten in fatigue testing.
The experimental data was cor-
related on the basis of crystal size
and the usual properties of materials
gotten in regular straight fatigue
specimen tests. Some idea of how

to apply the results of these studies
to actual design problems was given.
An informal discussion followed the
lecture.
Two more Westinghouse men will
speak at the Symposium next week.
The lecture and discussion will be
held as usual at 9 a.m. Saturday on
the third floor of the West Engineer-
ing Building.
Tea Dance Series
To Be Interrupted
The weekly series of Summer Ses-
sion tea dances, held from 4 p.m. to
6 p.m. each Wednesday in the Ball-
room of the League, will be inter-
rupted this week, Miss Ethel McCor-
mick, social director of the Summer
Session, announced yesterday.
A tea for the wives of faculty mem-
bers of the Summer Session will be
given Wednesday at the League. How-
ever, the regular tea dance is sched-
uled for July 20, Miss McCormick
said.

Here's Howard Hughes specially-built $85,000 plane as it left the ground at Floyd Bennett Field in New York at the start of a projected non-
stop flight to Paris. Hughes, millionaire aviator, and four companions ions planned to continue around the world, hoping to, break the globe-
girdling record of seven days, 18 hours and 49 minutes set by the late Wiley Post in 1933.

PARIS, July 12-(Tuesday)-(j)-
Howard Hughes headed his silver
monoplane toward Moscow early to-
day on the second leg of a world
flight after a breath-stopping take-
off whichapparently inflicted serious
damage to the plane's landing gear.
The danger - fraught departure
came at 1:24 a.m. (7:24 p.m. E.S.T.
Monday), more than eight hours
after the millionaire pilot and his
four companions landed to set a new
non-stop New York to Paris flight
mark.
His plane's left wheel apparently
was gravely damaged in the take-off.
It hit a rut at the end of the runway,
but Hughes managed to get the
heavily laden craft into the air al-
though with difficulty, barely missing
obstacles at the end of Le Bourget
Field.
As the plane disappeared in the
darkness, the dangling wheel giving

evidence of something amiss, appre-
hension arose the Americans might
experience difficulty in landing at
the Soviet capital some seven hours
hence.
Hughes immediately was notified
of the trouble by radio.
A damaged rudder control and fus-
elage had held the fliers over in
Paris for repairs. Mechanics said the
left wheel also had been checked
thoroughly.
