More Than 85
At Open House
Of Observatory
Clouds Prevent Good View
Of Skies; Moon, Planet
To Be Seen On July 21
Vfore than 85 students, faculty and
townspeople attended the first vis-
itors night at the Student Observa-
tory on the fifth floor of Angell
Hall last night.
Albert Hiltner and Harry Bandler,
student assistants doing graduate
work in the astronomy department
were in charge of the observatory,
and answered questions of the in-
terested visitors. No formal tour was
Late visitors who had expected to
view the Milky Way and other star
groups were disapponted to find that
the clouds had completely hidden
them from view. Neither the moon
nor planets could be seen, as they rise
later in the evening at this time of
year. However, it is expected that
the moon will be in evidence at the
open house to be held Friday and
Saturday evenings, July 21 and 22,
it was said. Later in the summer
the planets may be observed, also.
Among the students who attended
the open house were seen Della Siev-
ers, Al Stanford, Roy Bremer, Phyllis
Lenzner, Olin Van Lare, Veronica
Dundon, A. E. McCaskey, Dorothy
Gardner, Corinne Killinger, and Mi-
rian Farwell.
The observatory in Angell Hall is
used purely for observation purposes.
The main research observatory is lo-
cated on Observatory Street, near
the hospital.
Lindbergh In Michigan
MT. CLEMENS, July 7.-(IP)-Col.
Charles A. Lindbergh arrived at Sel-
fridge Field in an army plane late
today. He planned to stay over-
night. He was greeted by Lieut. Col.
L. S. Stone, acting commandant of
the army air 'field here.

Chinese Government Awards
Medal To President Ruthven

As evidence of an appreciation of
cultural values that surmounts even
the preoccupations of a devastating
war, President Ruthven has in hish
possession a Chinese decoration re-
cently received from the national gov-
ernment of China.
The decoration, known as the Blue
Grand Cordon of the Order of ther
Jade, was presented to Dr. Ruthven
through Hu Shih, Chinese ambassa-
dor to the United States in apprecia-
tion for the aid given by the Univer-
sity to the many Chinese students
enrolled here.
With her own academic functions r
disrupted and badly scattered, her
very functions of government fre-
quently threatened, China has indi-,
cated her indebtedness to the Uni-
versity in its attempt to keep alive
the culture and intellect of that ven-
erable Oriental nation by offering her
scholars the facilities of the Univer-
The metal parts of the decoration
are fashioned in gold, with blue in-
lays and pade centers. A sash of navy
blue silk completes the ensemble.
Other Americans receiving the
awarc this year are Nicholas Mur-.
ray Butler, president of Columbia
University; John Basset Moore, auth-

.Dirndl Leads
Fashion Pace
If you've scoured the town looking
for a double-duty dress which is
tailored enough to be worn to classes
and yet dressy enough for s date in
the evening, we not only whole-
heartedly sympathize, but think we
can help.
An acetate rayon dirndl in a soft
shade of rose not only fills the two-
purpose order, but also makes you
both look and feel as cool as though
you had just arrived from a refresh-
ing swim at Loch Alpine. The key-
note of this frock is simplicity as the
full skirt is shirred and bound tight-
ly in at the waist, and the only orna-
ments on the square necked bodice
are tiny pearl buttons.
Padded puffed sleeves lend that
newly laundered sparkel, and two
baggy pockets almost hidden in the
flares of the skirt give you a handy
place to tuck your compact and lip-
stick. Although the peasant lines
aim towards casualness, the rich ap-
pearance of the acetate paradoxical-
ly supplies the dress with a more
formal appeal, and makes it equally
appropriate for both your eight
o'clock in philosophy and one of
those weekend dances. Also, this
frock is especially flattering to the
tall, thin girl as it completely cam-
ouflages that under-nourished look.
Another model which caught our
eye the other day was one of those
neat looking shirtwaist dresses, this
time in Dalmatian linen. As y:u
know, this material is non-crushabl-a
and contrary to the trend of most
linens may be worn for hours with-
out 'wrinkling.- Add to this praltical
data an eye-catching print of blue
and green leaves on a white back-
ground with a blue patent lcather
belt and you'll have a smart number
which is guaranteed not to wilt and
ruin your day.
If it's something in a sports outfit
you're looking for, we advise you to
get one of those two-piece dresses
that you've been seeing so much of
on the Campus. We saw a particu-
larly attractive one today with a
blue and white checked gingham
blouse and a white crepe skirt. The
skirt was gored andAlared out around
the hips, yet was fitted at the waist
by a concealed zipper placate.

University'sUnique Gift
Probing the heavens to unravel the
mysteries, of the spheres before the+
human eye, the University's Mc-,
Math-Hulbert Observatory is con-
sidered one of the greatest contribu-
tions of the decade to the study of
astrtonomy in both classroom and
It is perhaps the most unique gift
in the University's history. -.Never
before have the donors of a gift not
only designed and constructed their
contribution before deeding it to the
institution but also given their serv-
ices to lend the gift its fullest value.
Eight years ago three friends of
astronomy residing in nearby De-
troit hit upon the idea of recordingI
celestial phenomena in -motion pic-
tures-so that students in their class-
rooms could witness in a few minutes
before their very eyes solar revolu-
tions, explosions and cycles which be-
cause of the time involved were im-
possible to observe through tele-
The three dreamers were Robert
R. McMath, President of the Motors-
Metal Manufacturing Company; his
father, Francis C. McMath, retired
civil engineer; and Judge Henry S.
Hulbert, Vice-president of the Na-
tional Bank of Detroit. The realiza-
tion of their dream, the McMath
Hulbert Observatory, the first in the
world equipped to record solar mo-
tion pictures, transformed the study
of astronomy from a static concept to
a study in kinetiks.
However the richest fruits which
their gift was to bear bloomed out-
side the classroom. They soon dis-
covered that the motion picture
method of study tapped hitherto un-
dreamed of fields of astronomical

research. Measurements of the
shadow lengths so profuse in lunar
motion picture films covering sev-
eral hours enabled scientists for the
first time to .construct a continuous
topographical contour map of por-
tions of the lunar surface. Records
of shifts in solar prom'finences like-
wise disclosed precious data regard-
ing the density of the gases involved:
in such solar eruptions.
Today the McMath-Hulbert Ob-
servatory is a mecca for American
astronomers, thanks largely . to the
mechanical and electrical accessories


:3 1

which the genius of Director Robert
R. McMath developed to surmouint
constantly cropping difficulties.
Chief among the mechanical im-
provxements was the development of
a frequency controlled electric drive
allowing infinite flexibility and a
driving range to suit any photo-
graphed object. The new drive has
since been adopted by large observa-
tories the world over.
To photograph solar promnpces
other than the total solar eclipses it
was necessary to construct an in-
strument known as the spectrohelio-
graph with a camera attached. The
instrument, technically known as the
spectroheliokinematograph, filters
out the desired wave lengths through
special slit prisms. The invention
recorded for the first time in history
continuous records of changes occur-
ing in solar prominences, great
clouds of gas spewed forth several
hundred thousand miles into space
from the bowels of the sun.
With the construction of a new
solar tower last year at the observa-
tory site near Lake Angelus, a few
miles north of Pontiac, the Mc-Math-
Hulbert Observatory has earned the
praise of experts as the most effici-
ent solar tower in existence and thte
early observatory in the world
equipped to record the heavens in
