Announcement of a new method of
detecting metal contents was made at
the Conference on Spectroscopy at
M.I.T. recently when Dr. Harvard B.
Vincent, Research Physicist of the en-
gineering research department, pre-
sented a paper titled "New Micro-

Will Give Recital Today
Two pianists and four vocalists will
join to present a recital at 8:30 p.m.
today in the Ethel Fountain Hussey
Room in the League, under the spon-
sorship of Dr. Kenneth N. Wester-
The performers are Jean M. Apel
and Helen E. Hunt, duo-pianist; Mir-
iam Westerman, soprano; Jean Wes-
terman, contralto; Rowland Mc-
Laughlin, tenor; and Roy Baughman,
Selections which will be heard on
the program are "Jesu, Joy of Man's
Desiring" by Bach, "Sicilienne" by
Bach-Maier, "Prelude in E" by Bach
Saar, Infante's "Ritmo," Ravel's
"Habanera" and Lecuova's "Mala-
" instrument which was built and as-
sembled in the Physics Instrument
Shop of the University.
Working on the principle of an
x-ray machine, the Microphotometer
photographs metal, the various sub-
stances being shown in bands of dif-
ferent intensity on the negative.
This method of analysis is a dis-
tinct improvement over the usual
method of chemical analysis, for the
machine can work continually with-
out overheating or deteriorating, and
without a loss in emmission charac-
teristics. Paramount features are its
simplicity and accessibility of con-
trols, delicate parts having been.
avoided in its construction.
In the matter of speed, the spec-
trochemical analysis is far above
chemical wet methods. Rush samples
for three or four elements may be
completed within six minutes of the
tim'e the sample is received. And in
batch practice, where all of the metal
is poured from the furnace at one
time, rapid analysis permits a final
correction of the composition.
Steel, for example, may be exam-
ined quickly for residuals which may
enter the melt through the crap.
The spectrochemistry method pro -
vides a production control which
should be differentiated sharply from
the post-mortem inspection to which
slower methods are limited.

to promote professional training,
graduate work, and the interests of
women in education.

SAN FRANCISCO, July 24.-(VP)-
The United State's denunciation of
Japan's moves toward further con-
quest in the Far East resulted in more
than 40 Japanese ships heaving to or
altering their courses on the high
seas tonight, pending instructions
from the Japanese Government.
There was no announcement of
the ships' positions or destinations
on this continent, and official sources
were secretive about the entire action.
A day's record fall of snow, 60
inches, occurred at Giant Forest,
California, January 19, 1933.
