THE BISMARCK TRIBUNE Under Martial Law Following Riots Scientist Dies SSSSBSBSS^^SSiSSSSSSBSSSSS ■». .;'■' lm£ * ?<, #(\ » V mmmmmimmmmmmmmiEml^SSSSSlSSsmmm3Sm\ PROF. A. A. MICHELSON DR. A. U, famous scientist, DIES IN PASADENA Physicist Who Computed Speed of Light Will Be Buried Tues day or Wednesday Pasadena, Cal., May 11.—(JP) —The body of Dr. Albert A. Michelson, who died here Saturday, will be buried at Mountain View cemetery, Altadena, late Tuesday or Wednesday under plans subject to change after arrival of two daughters en route here. Services attended only by members of the family and possibly a few close friends will be held at the modest residence'where the famikl physicist practically completed work supple menting his prior computation of the speed of light. When Albert A. Mlchelson was graduated from the naval academy In 1873, the superintendent remark ed: "If you’d give less attention to those scientific things and more to your naval gunnery, there might come a time when you would know enough to be of some use to your country.” Whether this had anything to do with Michelson’s departure from the navy is not known, but his decision to enter another field resulted in his receiving the highest of scientific honors. Professor Mlchelson was the first American scientist to win the Nobel prize, and as head of the department of physics at the University of Chi cago, he probably was best known as the discoverer of the length of light waves and for his accurate measure- ment of the speed of light. When past 70 years of age, he had determined the speed of light long given in round figures as 186,000 miles per second, to within 20 miles per second of its real value and he expected by further experiments to reduce the measurement to within flv% miles. The experiments by which he established his figures were car ried out on two California moun tains. 22 miles apart. Mount Wilson and Mount St. Antonia, and at an ori ginally perfected test plot on the out skirts of Chicago. HID. PERSONS ARRESTED IN RAIDS NeW Rockford.

HOOVER TO REDUCE EXPENDITURES OF WARDEPARMT Complete Reorganization of Federal Branch Is Planned by Chief Executive DETAILS OF PLAN UNKNOWN Hurley, Payne and Representa tive Wood Attend Confer ence at Rapidan Washington, May 11.—(/P) —As one step in his efforts to save money for the government, President Hoover in tends to reorganize the war depart ment Just how far this organization will go, or when and how it will become effective, has not been announced, but the tentative decision to make “progressive” changes was reached in the executive’s week-end conferences with officials of that department at his Rapidan, Virgina, camp. The war department study was the first of a series the president has be gun because of decreasing income and the increasing treasury deficit, which now is around $800,000,000. On war department problems the executive conferred with a number of officials, including Secretary Hurley, Assistant Secretary Payne, and Chairman Wood of the last house ap propriations committee. Major General Lytle Brown, chief of army engineers, reported on the progress of inland waterways projects. His reports, it was said, were received merely in the general consideration of problems and not because *the presi dent had in mind any particular sav ings in that direction. Other departments will be studied in succeeding weekends. Officials called the war branch deliberations “merely the start of an exhaustive study to be continued in Washington during the next several weeks." The last annual supply bill for that department carried about $445,000,000, of which approximately $111,000,000 was to be devoted to non-military ac tivities. The latter figure included $60,000,000 for river and harbors and $35,000,000 for Mississippi flood con trol. About 10 billions of dollars was ap propriated by the last congress for government uses. The total covered expenditures for the two fiscal years, and the largest single annual supply bill for the year beginning next July 1 was that carrying $1,083,000,000 for the treasury and postoffice. GERMAN EXPLORER IS BELIEVED LOST Prof. Alfred L. Wegener May Have* Died During Winter in Greenland Berlin, May 11.—(VP)—Professor Al fred L. Wegener, German scientist and arctic explorer, was believed Monday to have lost his life during the winter among the crags of Greenland’s icy mountains. A radio message from Greenland said a relief expedition had reached the central ice cap station of the Wegener party and had found Weg ener’s three companions, Johannes Georgi, Fritz Loewe, and Ernst Sorge, but hr was not with them. The three men said their chief, with a companion named Rasmus, and 12 others had started back from the ice cap station last November for his base at Kamarajuk, 250 miles westward. Nothing has been heard of Wegener nor of any who were with him since that time. The party starting back from Eis mitte, as the Isolated ice cap station was called, had dog sledges and sup plies for about 15 days, Insufficient to keep them alive long in the event of a mishap marooning them on the ice. There was a bare possibility that the party have dug itself in some where to await warmer weather but it was doubted. The Wegener expedition left Cop enhagen April 1, 1930, intending to spend 18 months in Greenland. Dr. Wegener is a former balloonist and is widely known for his arctic expe ditions, of which this last was to gather meteorological and scientific data. He was 50 years old the day he started back to his base from Eismltte.

Y., May 11.—(/P) —King Prajadhipok of Siam was resting at Ophir Hall Monday, after a success ful operation for removal of a catar act from his left eye Sunday. “I see the light," he remarked im mediately after the operation. He was conscious of every detail because only local anaesthetics were used. Three stitches were taken. The king, who traveled half-way around the globe to receive surgical attention, asked teat his people In Siam be notified of the outcome. The doctors’ bulletin as cabled to his country. It read: “The cataract has been successfully removed from the king’s left eye. No complication was found in the oper ation, and we have every reason to believe that the result will be favor able. The king is suffering no pain." The king's physician, Rear Admiral Chayant, was unable to be at the operation, having been stricken with malaria. Monday he was a patient in the Harbor hospital, New York. Dr. lago Galdston, executive secre tary of the medical Information bu reau of the New York academy of science, who attended as an observer, said the wound would heal in about a week and the bandages wdold be removed in about 10 days. “By virtue of this operation it is expected the king will, with the aid of glasses, have normal, or near nor mal vision,” he added. “The king will of course be obliged to wear spec tacles with a special glass lens in front of his left eye to take the place of the clouded eye lens which was removed.” The king’s remark about seeing light was explained by the fact that a cataract acts much like a curtain hung behind the pupil of the eye. When this curtain is removed, al though the eye cannot focus to ob jects, It sees light clearly. The operation was performed by Dr. John M. Wheeler, assisted by Dr. Thomas N. Johnson. In the operat ing room also were Dr. R. A. Cooke, who treated the king previously for asthma and hay fever, and Dr. Hugh 8. McKeown.

Close behind the announcement by Prohibition Director Woodcock that it had been formed to conduct re search in the graduate schools of va rious universities, there came a state ment from Henry H. Curran, presi dent of the Association Against the Prohibition amendment, describing it as just another commission to “inves tigate the bedtime story known as na tional prohibition.” The organization, to be known as the Bureau of Prohibition Advisory Research Council, has as members: Richard C.

Anders, Fargo, Named Executive Secretary in Sat urday Meeting Fargo, N. D.. May 11.—(A*)—North Dakota's capltol commission hopes to have a new capitol under construc tion at Bismarck early next spring. Meeting in Fargo Saturday the commission plunged into the task of arranging preliminary • plans. The first step was to name Prank L. Anders, Fargo, secretary of the commission. Then the group author ized Immediate removal of the old capitol fire debris. Then the board planned its procedure in the selec tion of an architect. The following statement was issued: “The authority and responsibility rests upon this duly constituted board of capitol commissioners to procure for the state of North Dakota, within the limits stipulated, a capitol build ing which, meeting the requirements as finally determined, will take its place as a noble expression in lasting materials of the ideals of a sovereign state. To attain this result the com missioners are constrained to seek the highest available ability and skill in the architect to be selected to un dertake this task.” That statement will be part of a questionnaire the board is preparing to send to a selected list of architects, including all the North Dakota archi tects who are licensed and can qualify under the law. In selecting the architect the North Dakota men will be given first con sideration. While the board does not propose to “trim” when it comes to employing an architect, nor in getting materials for the building which will make it a lasting and fitting monument to “the ideals of a sovereign state,” it gave evidence Monday that it is going to watch the pennies and see that they are not frittered away needlessly. The board has at its disposal a vast amount of study and investigational work recently carried on by the St. Paul commission which spent two years planning the new Ramsey county and St. Paul city and county building. The board plans to make a trip probably late this month to inspect buildings in Denver, Omaha, St. Louis and possibly in Louisiana.
