duced them to each other.
Back in 1929 the station, which has
just been put back on the air for the
coming year, was keeping in touch
with a University expedition in
Greenland under the direction of
Prof. William H. Hobbs of the ge-
ology department and at the same
time was contacting Rear Admiral
Byrd's Antarctic expedition.
One night Fred W. Albertson,
W8AXZ's operator at the time, con-
ceived the- idea of putting the two
polar stations in direct contact with
each other. Excitedly he contacted
one, then the other. A few minutes
later NX1XL in Greenland sent out
her first signals. A pause-and an
answer from WFA, over 12,000- miles
to the south. . The poles had been
linked by radio for the first time!
Nor is that the only experience the
station has had with headline news.

tempted northern-route Chicago-to-
Berlin flight in July, 1929.
In addition to its role in these his-
tory-making events, the station main-
tained routine contact with a simi-
lar station in Bloemfontein,, South
Africa, where the University estab-
lished an astronomical observatory,
and has been used in recent years to
keep in touch with the University's
summer surveying camp in Wyoming.
The messages handled by W8AXZ
are not all business, however. Albert-
son writes that in 1915 a game of
checkers was played with Ohio State
by radio. Checkers and squares were
numbered, and the moves transmit-
ted by short wave.
During the World War the Govern-
ment took over the operation of the
unit, using it to pick up German
sending stations.

Offering wide opportunities for re-
search to architectural and classical
language students and well-known
all over the nation and world for its
fine collections is the University Mu-,
seum of Classical Archaeology.
Archaeological collecting was begun
at the University almost fifty years
ago by Prof. Francis W. Kelsy of the
Latin department who served on the
faculty from 1889 to 1927. The mu-
seum itself was organized in 1928,
and it is now under the direction of
Prof. John G. Winter, chairman of
the Department of Latin. Mr. E. E.
Peterson is Curator and Miss Louise
Shier and Mr. Peter Ruthven are
Assistant Curators.
The museum possesses the greatest
collection of Coptic and Islamic tex-
tiles in the United States. Last year
the famous H. A. Elsberg collection
i of these articles was acquired. From

"the ancient city of Karanis, Egypt,
where University archaeologists have
excavated in the past years, one of
the world's finest collections of first,
second, and third century glass was
obtained. The largest collection of
Greco-Roman pottery dating from
the late Ptolemaic times to the fourth
and fifth century A. D. was also
gathered there.
More than 150 maps were made of
the Karanis area with its mound of
six levels, and in the opinion of
archaeologists represents some of the.
best documentation of an ancient
city that has yet been done. The
museum also excavated a collection
of grave stelae from the city of Tere-
nousthis in the Delta of Egypt, some
70 kilometers from Cairo.
Pride of the museum, however, is
its papyrus collection which is the
largest in the United States and com-
pares with the collections in the
British Museum, Oxford, and Berlin.
It is from such papyrus documents
that the background, living manners,
