Total Of 25,0WO Men Reported To Be
Engaged In Industry With
300 At IdarI
"Idar is one of the great centers of
the world for gem cutting. It is to
that village that buyers from all over
the world make pilgrimages." Thus,
Dean Edward H. Kraus, of the Sum-
mer session, summed up his illus-
trated lecture on "The Gem Cutters
of Idar-on-the-Nahe," which was pre-
sented yesterday afternoon in th
Natural Science auditorium.
"Whenever you happen to go into
a bazaar and see an agate articlte,
such as this," continued the Dean as
he indicated some speciments of
agate work from Idar which were
displayed on the lecture table, "you
will know that it come sfrom Idar."
Slides Are Shownj
Dean Kraus by means of slides
showed the Idar cutters at work. They
lie upon their stomachs, in some
cases, so that by means of cleats for
their toes, they may exert a greater
pressure on the stone that they are
cutting. "This system, however," said
the Dean, "was bad because it threw
the weight of the man upon his chest
and tuberculosis became prominent.
Nowadays the cutters usually sit at
their work."
In connection with Idar Dean Kraus
also mentioned the industry of bead
drilling, and that of engraving, show-
ing slides upon those subjects. He
told'of how several years ago, when
agate was scarce, that a group of the
cutters from Idar left their homes
for Brazil, where all being musicians,
they formed a German band. One of!
the members of this band happened
to notice a type of rock in a stream
he was passing that resembled the
rock that he had once cut in Idar.j
He sent it home, and the people dis-
covered that it was a substitute for
the agate that they had been using
although it had to be dyed before it
could be commercially practical.
- Traces Methods
At/ the beginning of his Idcture
Dean Kraus- traced the different
methods of cutting and polishing
stones, and stated that there" are 25,-
000 men engaged in the industry,
with 10,000 in Amsterdam, 11,000 in
Antwerp, and more than 300 at Idar.
He also mentioned that the gem
cutters are regularly divided into two,
classes although at Idar this order is
slightly changed. The classes are the
diamond cutters and the lapidaries,
the former being what might be called
the aristocrats of the profession.
Mrs. W. D. Henderson, chairman of
the fund campaign for the Women's J
League, will have charge of the spe-
cial entertainment at the tea to be
given this afternoon from 4 to 5:30
in the parlofs of Barbour gymnasium.

Transatlantie Flyers Taken To Dinner

Six Famous Airmen

NEW YORK, July 19.-A ball game.
in the afternoon and a civic dinner atj
night were the chief and almost' the
only items on today's schedule of the
six New York to Europe flyers now
concentrated in this city. Col. CharlesI
A. Lindbergh was the only one to get
ipto the air.
Commander Richard E. Byrd, leader
of the expedition in the monoplane
America and his crew, Bert Acosta,
George Noville and Bert Balchan, and
Clarence Chamberlin, pilot of the
oClmubia, all slept late after the
boisterous reception given them yes-!
terday on their return from Europe.
Colonel Lindbergh, on the other,
hand, was up early, arriving at Mitch-
ell field at 8 o'clock and flying a ser-
vice plane to New Jersey. At the
Peterboro airport he climbed into his;
transatlantic Spirit of St. Louis,
which has been thoroughly overhauled
and flew down to Rhode Island. To-
morrow noon he will hop off for
Hartford, Conn., in the first leg of aj
national tour in his famous mono-j
plane in the interest of aviation. {
Balchen also went to New Jersey I
today. For a year he has been test
pilot at the Fokker factory at Has-
brook Heights and he revealed that
he is leaving for Holland August 1:
to superintend the transportation to
this country of the plane in which
Commander Byrd will attempt a flight j
to the South Pole.1

students in other summer s*ssions
He mentions the Library as being
very well conducted.
Michigan's greatest fault, Mr. Gil-
bert believes, is that of every large
university, "the tendency to over-em-
phasize mechanism and to have too
little provision for the proper carry-
ing on of graduate work, particularly}
in the number of teachers employed."
