for hurling a stone through a window
at the home of Prof. L. P. Joselyn, on

was on the point of leaving the house
for the train, Barlow vented his an-
ger by smashing the window. He is
now awaiting arraignment.

Owing to the distance of the- Ob-
servatory from the campus, the great-
er part of the student body does not
realize that it is one of the most mod-
ern in the United States, containing
some of the most perfectly made in-
struments that have ever been in-
vented for determining the movement
of the solar bodies.
It was decided in the year 1854 to
establish an observatory having but
one telescope ,and the matter creat-
ed so much interest that the people
of Detroit raised $15,000 of the neces-
sary funds, and the Board of Re-
gents voted $7,000 more to cover the
total expense of the building and
Now Three Telescopes
The smallest of the three domes
covers the original instrument, a
telescope known as the meridian cir-
cle, since it is mounted on an east
and west axis. It is used for telling
the time of day. Its diameter is but'
6 1-2 inches, and it can be swung
only in one direction.'
In addition to this, sometime lat-
er, an equatorial refracting telescope
was added, mounted on a conical
stone foundation. The instrument cost
about $6,000 and was considered one
of the finest in the world at that
time, having a driving clock attached
to it in such a way that it counter-
acts the effect of the motion of the
earth's rotation on the telescope. It
is used for determining the course of
various planets and observing the
heavens in general.
One of World's Best
Under cover of the largest dome
is one of the three finest telescopes
in the world, being excelled only by
the one in the Imperial Russian Ob-
servatory, and the one at Harvard
university. The reflector of this i
strument was made in France, out of
special glass found in that country
then brought to the United States,
where it was silvered. The original
price was about $4,000, but owing to
present war conditions, it could not
now be bought for $10,000. This re-
flector measures 37 1-2 inches in di-
ameter and is 6 1-2 inches in thick-
ness. It is necessary to resilver its
surface every four months in order
to preserve a flawless reflection. At
the present time it is used exclusive-
ly for photography and can not be
used for any other purpose until the
complicated photograplic apparatus
is removed.
"The steam engineering school be-

According to Horace W. King, pro-
fessor of hydraulic engineering, it is
impossible to divert more water from
the falls on account of a treaty exist-
ing between this country and Canada,
whereby each is allowed a certain
amount of the water. It is proposed
by the investigators to icrease the
power output of the present installa-

still more important\industrially by
a greater utilization of the power of
the falls, which are only one-fourth
used at present."

neering college, yesterday morning.
Two of the 20 Michigan sen-
ior engineers now at the school will
probably receive ensigns' commis-
sions within a short time, according
to Professor Anderson. The regular
course covers a period of eight
months, so that these men will have
been excused fromthe long training
period usually 'necessary to win a
commission. W. S. Dinwiddie, '18E,
and P. C. Stephen, '18E, will proba-
bly receive commissions.
In discussing the rapid promotion
of engineers making good in the
school; Professor Anderson said that
he knew of many former engineering
students who had been promoted di-
rectly from ensign to senior lieuten-
ants; a grade equalling that of cap-
tain in the army. One student of an-
other university was promoted direct-
ly from lieutenant to lieutenant-com-
Prof. Herbert C. Sadler Visits Campus
Prof. Herbert C. Sadler, formerly
head of the marine engineering de-
partment and now assistant manager
of steel ship construction in the em-
ergency fleet corporation, paid a short
visit to the University yesterday.
Professor Sadler has been making an
inspection tour of the eastern ship-
yards to learn the progress being made
on the government's ships. "The pro-
duction of ships has been progressing
steadily and is up to my expecta-
tions," he said yesterday.
Philadelphia will be Professor Sad-
ler's headquarters for the present
time. He will supervise the work on
the steel ships being built there.
