(By the Associ ated Press.) The Einstein theory of relativity is to be subjected to a new practical test by Prof. Albert A. Mi chelson of the University of Chicago, whose discoveries led to its formula tion. The forthcoming experiment is expected to lend substantial sup port to the theory or to disprove it. Prof. Michelson, who is now lectur ing at the University of Paris, is ex pected back about July 1st and the test is planned within the next year. It will be conducted under the aus-. pices of the University of Chicago, either in this city or in some moun tainous country. The experiment has been undertak en at the request of Dr. Ludwick Sil berstein of the Eastman Research Laboratories at Rochester, N. Y., who has worked out its terms. It is said that Professor Albert Einstein on his recent visit to the United States ex pressed his belief in the efficacy of the experiment. Just what it is planned to do to determine whether Einstein's theory holds or not was explained here to day by Prof. Robert A. Millikan, col league of Prof. Michelson in the de partment of technical details. Prof. Millikan said: "This is, as a matter of fact, an ex periment suggested by Prof. Michel son 20 years ago as one way of test ing whether of not it is possible to de lect a motion of the earth with re spect to the medium which carries a light. "All efforts thus far made to de tect by means of light affects the mo tion of any material body with re spect to the other have failed. But all preceding attempts have been made with the idea of trying to mea sure the' linear motion through space of a point on the earth with respect to the ether surrounding that point, and the results thus far obtained have been wholly negative. "In other words the observed ef fects have been precisely those to be ?xpeeted if there is no relative mo Lion of the earth with respect to the ether at all. To illustrate, if an ob server were himself immersed in a great sphere of rotating water and were to send sound signals simultan eously forward in the direction in which he is moving and also back ward, and if these sound signals were reflected by mirrors placed at equal distances ahead and behind him, the echoes would obviously come back at exactly the same instant, provided there were no relative motion be tween himself and the water. In other wordst he could not detect by such an experiment the movement of himself or the water unless he were moving more rapidly or more slowly than the water. In which case he would be able to detect and to mea sure his relative motion with respect to the water by the difference in the time of return of the echo from the forward mirror and the back mir ror. "Now the results of all experiments of this sort up to date in which, we have sent light signals forward" and back have been to show no differ ence in the time of the return of the light echo to the observer. From this the conclusion has been drawn that the ether, if it exists at all, moves with the earth so as to make it impossible to detect any relative motion, "The special theory of relativity as generally stated "consists in the as sertion that it is impossible to de tect the motion of any body with re spect to the ether. The statement would be more conservative if put in the form that all experiments up to the present have failed to detect such relative motion. "Now Prof. Michelson pointed out some 2 0 years ago that if the ether is dragged along with the earth at its surface, it would have to be dragged in a different amount near the equa tor tnan near the pole, because of the fact that the motion of rotation of the earth is greater at the equator than at the poles. Hence one way of testing whether or not we can de tect motion of points on the earth's surface with respert to the ether would be to send a light signal in different directions around the earth's surface with respect to the ether would be to send a light signal in different directions around the earth's pole and see whether the two signals came back to the starting point at the Fame instant. If there were any relative motion of the earth with respect to the ether they would not do so. But if the ether in th neighborhood of all portions of the earth had the same motion as the arth imt beneath it, then the two n.gnals would come back at exactly the same time, for the experiment would be quite analogous to that of an observer in the big tank of relat ing water mentioned above. "The experiment was not tried in this form Because it was thought that the form that Prof. Michelson did employ was practically equivalent to it and showed that the result would ha,-e been negative if it had been tried. "Now Dr. Silberstein has asked Prof. Michelson to take up again the projected experiment because he has corrrputed that If the general theory of relativity is correct, there should be a difference In the time of return to the source of signals sent in op posite directions around the pole in the manner indicated. "A little computation shows that it should be just as satisfactory to send a beam around a circuit of known area in the latitude of Chicago as in the latitude of the pole. "The difference between this ex periment and its predecessor lies in the fact that this utilizes the chang ing speed which the earth's rotation imposes upon points of different dis tances from the earth's pole, while the former was quite independent of this fact. "Prof. Michelson has therefore agreed in view of the immense in terest which there Is now in relati vity to take up again this experiment, which has acquired added interest be cause of the fact that Dr. Silberstein's analysis of the theory of relativity requires that there be a positive measurable effect when the experi ment is performed in this way. "If the predicted amount of this effect is exactly checked experiment ally, Einstein's theory of relativity will receiwr support. If, on the other hand, as in the preceding ex periment, there should be found to be no observable difference in the time required for the light to go in opposite directions around the cir cuit, or if the observed difference does not check numerically- with the computed, then the Einstein theory will have been disproved." wearables of Summer, also ideal for Vacation.

Here is the story of how a prospecting- oil driller "scooped" the world-famous John D. and is now riding to fame on the millions of an El Dorado "gush er." It is the story of a gamble, the first thought, fltiicker action and of life in the ra ir. The scene laid in this old cow town on the edge of Louisiana and in the heart of the new "boom" field. The prospector is A. R. Aphlet. who threatens to tie knots in the ooTieieo of the Standard Oil Company in the try. southwestern field. He is president of the Standard Oil Company of Arkan sas, but he is not aligned with the Rockefeller interests. Riding into El Dorado on the re cent "boom," Aphel discovered that the Arkansas corporation laws offer ed no barrier to the use of the incor porated name of another company. So he organized the S. O. of A. much to the disgusct of the "parent" or ganization. El Dorado only a month before had been peacefully sleeping. Rumors were heard from time to time of oil fields just across the border in Louisi anna. One day a "gusher" came in and within twenty-four hours the town was a hotbed of feverish pros pectors. Oil men flocked there from all parts of the nation and some even came from foreign climes. Its pop ulation trebled over night- "Some one is putting it over on the Standard Oil," was a report circulated one night. It was traced to Aphel and his little band of associates. Notice 'that the company was duly charter ed appeared in a Little Rock news paper. Then followed a perfect mael strom of protest on the Secretary of State's office. The Standard Oil Compony of Lou isiana stormed the Secretary of State's office with telegraphic pro tests. They were told, however, they "had run into a stone wall." Aphel's company and its corporation were en tirely legal. Aphel's little company with a 5500,000 capital practically dominates the new field. He is the first oil man to success fully "pass the buck" to the Rocke feller interests. His future is eagerly watched by oil men all over the coun- ' Eight er From Decatur" Youth Galls to Dice And Goes Fres Portland, Ore.. June 21. Glen Lo- ret-t and Martin Francis crooned soft ly to the . little square spot-covered objects as they rolled them skillfully up against a building. So interested were tey that they failed to notice the soft-footed approach of Patrol man Babeock, who had heard those hushed but tense sounds before. "Come on you little Joe," softly but earnestly pleaded one of the boys. "Yeah, come on with me." came a voice from behind and Babeock col lared the youthful cube worshippers and led' them to the police station. "Not boys, you're going to make your point before I do or you're go ing to jail," the policeman said. "These reporters here will referee the game. I'll roll each of you in turn. If you beat me you can go home, but I'll keep the dice and never let me catch you with any more in your pockets." Lorett took the bones and rolled an eight. "EigAter from Decatur, take me home and keep me out of jail," he wailed. Ten times he prayerfully cast the dice. On the eleventh throw an eight loomed up and he was free. Francis was luckier, for he knew how to talk to 'em better. On the first throw he rolled a seven. "Good ol' natural," he thankfully commented, as he hastened out the door. "I don't mind shootin' for a nickel, but a night in jail is too much on one throw. No more craps for me." AS BAD AS Ol'll OXE HALF OF OXE PER CENT. Madrid, June 20. There's no rest for the movies in Madrid. The new prefect of police here, wha recently issued . an order that th sexes should be" separated In the au diences at movie theatres, has now amended the order as follows: Two-fifths of the saace available women and children; one-half of the remaining three-fifths will be reaerv ed for men and children; tbe othei' half of the three-fifths "will be kept for the audience will be reserved for for both sexes. Red lights must be kept on at aU times in this latest sec tion. The order goes on. Anyone over ten years of age who is found in a part of the house where he does not be long will be liable to a fine of not less than ten dollars. There is considerable consternation iraong the courting couples ot tho city. The newspapers humorously de clare that cinema proprietors will be obliged to take a course in higher ma thematics in order to make sure what is tho half of three-fifths. Although the new regulation has been the subject of many humorous paragraphs, it is generally agreed since the behavior of a section of tho that drastic restraint was needed, public at cinemas has been a cause of scandal.
