100-Inch Eelescope of Mount Wilson
Brings Moon Within 20
Miles of Earth
"The Meaning of the Nebulas" was
the title of the illustrated lecture de-
livered yesterday afternoon in Nat-
'ural Science auditorium by Professor
O. L. Dustheimer, of Baldwin Wallace
college, who is conducting courses in
the University this summer.
Uses Slides
Professor Dustheimer, by means of
slides, showed a number of the large
observatories of the world, the first of
which was the Mount Wilson observa-
tory in Los Angeles, the site of which
was chosen by Professor Hussey, who
up to the time of his death was the
head of the department of Astronomy
of the University. Here the world's
largest +telescope and the branch of
this Observatory located at Bloemfon-
tein, Africa.
Photographs' of different planets
were shown including Mars, Jupiter,
Saturn, and Venus. The sun was
also discussed and the statement
nmade that it was 1,300,000 times larger
than the earth.
Shows Nebulae of Orion
In discussing the Nebulae Professor
Dustheimer showed a great number
of these, particularly those of Orion,
which he stated was geometrically
hard to study, but it had been deter-
mined that it was six light years
across, a light year being the dis-
tauce that light will travel in one

RAPID CITY, S. D., July 28.-A
slash of 1 or 2 per cent in the recent
corporation tax seems destined to
form the keystone of the prospective
tax reduction program.
Administration leaders who have
conferred here with President Cool-
idge have put this move down as one
of the first to be considered in the
tax-cutting planned for next session.
Some Democratic leaders favored
such a reduction last session and so
Socecerted action on this point, at
least appears probable.
Other points which seem likely to
gain administration favor Include re-
ptal of the remaining was "nuisance"
levies, including those on theater ad-
missions and club dues. However, a
ro wis impending on elimination of
the automobile passenger car tax.
Republicans who have come here
have indorsed a cut in this tax, now
amounting to 3 per cent, but none
have gone on record for its repeal.
Wile no administration plan will
be announced until after the presi-
dent has conferred with Chairman
Green of the house wyays and means
committee and Secretary Mellon-and
there may be none even then-it has
ben argued by those who came to the
summer White House 'that the total
reduction must be held at $300,000,000
or $350,000,000.
Pointing to the surplus around!
$600,000,000 which was piled up in the
treasury during the fiscal year ending
June 30, some Democratic leaders

have indicated there would be a fight
to make the total slash at least $500,-
000,000. A larger reduction was
sought by Democrats two years ago.
Senator Smoot of Utah, chairman of
the finance committee, says a reduc-
tion in the 13 1-2 per cent corporation
tax to 12 per cent will cost the gov-
ernment $150,000,000, or half of the
total cut in taxes he favors.

i - -

It is no secret, particularly after
the press pre-views that Hedda Gab-
ler is at once the most marvelous,
the most complex and compelling
woman in dramatic literature of re-
cent years. A lady dominated by one,
impelling ambition, a desire for pow-
er which was not social or political,
but was a personal one, that could
mold and eventually ruin men, puh-
sued by one great flaw in her char-
acter, cowardice, she is one of the
most overwhelming creatidos of the
modern stage. tI is her failure to
satisfy her desire, and the pitiful sur-
7 render in the debacle of her death,
which furnishes the essential conflict
of the tragedy.
Hedda sought with inhuman craving
to establish her hold on man and
though the gifts of her mind were
great, she could not control even the
vaporings of her husband fool. Her
one conquest turned to ashes in her

hands. Eilert Lovborg was the one
man whose most minute impulse she
could control, but his inglorious death
broke the hold she exercised. Every-
thing she touched in her heatless pas-
sion for power turned to eventual
ruin. Her own death, a cowardly sur-
render to convention which her mind
urged her to ignore, but which her
temperament, could not overlook, a
surrender dictated by her fear of
scandal, and her unwillingness to bear
the responsibilities of life, is the final
touch of Ibsen's great tragedy.
Miss Kearns Plays Well
Miss Kearns gave a subtle and sym-
pathetic interpretation of the conflict
which raged in the mind of Hedda.
Icily dispassionate, without a single
virtue to redeem her, a vampire who
sucked the blood of those whom she
could not otherwise control, her inter-
pretation was marvelous. Her treat-
*ment of the scene in which she burned
the manuscript in response to the
basets impulse of her nature, and the
eventual horror which followed in the
wake of her act, epitomized the con--
flict in Hedda's mind even as the pis-
tols symbolized her very character,
and it gives hint of a deeper nature to
the woman than one would expect to
find. It was this subtlety which Miss
Kearns was able to portray with
stunning effect. Indeed, one might
say that it was a new Hedda which
she created, for behind the remorse-
less hate which often dominated her,
there was a hint of feminine weak-
ness, a woman, not a fiend, whose very
complexity was an enigma to herself.
The one decent impulse of her life,
her love for Lovborg which she could
not understand, was strangled by a
jealousy which was equally puzzling ,
to her.
Others Do Well
Several other members of the cast
responded admirably to the tempo set
by Miss Kearns. Throughout, her's
was properly, the dominating figure,
though Amy Loomis as Mrs. Elvsted,
and RobertHenderson as Loveborg
were excellent, while Miss Horine as
Aunt Julia, after a first flurry of ner-
vousness gave a very sympathetic
The whole production was the most1
ambitious undertaking, and in some
respects one of the most remarkable
attempted in Ann Arbor. The inex-
cusable sloppiness which was pain-f
fully obtrusive in Fanny was smoothed
over; the slip shod directing which
made the other play poor, was re-
placed by a most carefultattention of
detail. The directing tonight em-
phasized the essential unity of the
play, and the acting of Miss Kearns
carried out that unity to produce a
most pleasing whole. There can be
but one legitimate complaint, the spots
in the footlights would seem to defy
every canon of thearic art; the shad-
ows they cast on the set, the distor-
tions of the faces as they move across
the beam of light are a matter which
more careful directing would obviate.

Rural Superintendents and Principals
Will Discuss Individual
-A display of standardized educa-
tional and mental tests will be held in
Room 112 University High school dur-
ing the first wek of August, under the
auspices of the Bureau of Educational
Reference and Research. Copies of
all tests used in the Michigan Co-
operative Testing program and copies
of other standardized tests designed
for elementary and high schools will
bet on display. Superintendents ,su-
pervisors, principals and teachers in
rural schools are particularly invited
to attend. The material will be on
display from 3 to 5 on August 1 to 4
Comparisons Unfair
In many communities a comparison
of the work of the school with that
in other cities of the same size is un-
fair as a whole because of special so-
cial and economic conditions which
affect a school favorably or unfavor-
ably. In such schools the need for
measurement is more acute than in
schools which a'e niore nearly typi-
cal. By comparison of the scores in
one year with those - in preceding
years the general trend in the school
will be revealed.
The most important use of the test-
ing program in cities of all sizes and
conditions will be, the measurement '
of the progress of individual students.
The testing program enables the
schools to make individual adjust-
ments much earlier than would be
possible without much testing. 3
Use Grade Levels
In the smaller schools the com-
parison of the pupil's score with the
average score for Michigan is facili-
tated by the use of Michigan grade-
levels prepared for the tests used in
the Michigan Co-operative Testing
In addition to the elementary school
program which has been conducted]
by the Bureau for a number of years,
a testing program in the high schools
has recently been established. The
rapid growth of the high school pro-
gram is an indication that it is fillingI
a real need in the high school field.

DETROIT, July 28.-In apparentl
sympathy with earlier announcements
that the Dearborn Independent, here-1
tofore considered the official mouth-
piece of Henry Ford, would be turned It
into a house organ not for general
circulation, Henry Ford has orderedr
dealers to halt subscriptions to the
publication. 4
The order was contained in a letter
received by most dealers Tuesday.It
tersely ordered discontinuance of furI.
ther soliciting for subscriptions and
return of subscriptions already made.

Official support of any intention to
restrict the Independent to the Ford
organization was lacking at the busi-
ness offices of the publication and
elsewhere. The agencies have been
required to obtain subscriptions for
the Indeapendent as well as to sell
cars and tractors.
The second reception of the Sum-
mes session will be held in Barbour
gymnasium at 9:30 o'clock this etve-
ning under the auspices of the Wom-
en's league. Ted Cross's orchestra
will furnish music for the dancing
and tables will be provided for those
who wish to play cards.
Dan Edward H. Kraus and Mrs.
Kraus will attend. Refreshments will
be /served by the Women's league. All
students of the Summer session are
invited to attend.

YPSILANTI, July 28. - Michigan's
masters of golf and those unknown
meet heral tomorrow for the third
round of the Michigan- golf chamhion-
ship tournament. Eight men remain-
ed tonight of the 32 starting play this
morning, two of them playing in their
first tournament.
In the carnage of the day, Carlton
Wells, three times a champion, and
James B. Standish, four times a title-
holder, went down to defeat as did
William Courtney, runner-up last year
and 1927 Dertoit municipal champion.
Others to fall included Harry Allen,
once runner-up, and Howard Tryon,
who was the junior champion last
year, and others almost as well known.
Bergelin Plays Well
Out of the play of the day the work
of John Bergelin, disposing of Court-
ney and Tryon, and playing close to
par all the long, weary way, stood out
tonight. Bergelin had an eay time
disposing of Courtney, but in thedaf-
ternoon he met a youth that matched
him shot for shot and only owing to
an unfortunate selection of clubs on
the 18th tee by Tryon, sent the Big
Rapids youngster home a winner.
The other feature of the day's play
was the crusing defeat of Wells by
Ward. The champion won on the
seventh and eighth greens, as legiti-
mately as any match was every won.
Le drove the 342-yard green on the
seventh and missed an ele two by
an inch. He sank a 40-f'ot put on
