Zoology Proiessor Will Outline Studies Al Final Lecture In the concluding lecture of the regular Wednesday series. Dr. Francis M. Baldwin, professor of zoology, will speak on ‘ Indirect Calorimetry in Relation to Human Metabolism" at 4:30 p.m. today in 159 Science. By the use of calorimetry, Professor Baldwin has been able to determine the output of heat energy of various types of animals in given lengths of time. CALORIE DEFINED The speaker defines a calorie as the amount of heat necessary to raise the temperature of one cubic centimeter of water one degree centigrade. Metabolism is the waste and repair function of the body cells. Dr. Baldwin's experiments on the subject, which have been published in the proceedings of the Society for Experimental Biologist and Medicine, aid in giving an index of the utilization of foodstuffs eaten. HEAT DETERMINED "Knowing the amount of food combusted," the professor declared In speaking of the calorie as a unit of measurement, “it ls easy to determine the heat equivalent of materials burned.” Certain foods generate different amounts of heat energy when combusted in the'animal body, accord- Senate Rejects Talcott limlr.aries In division B. in which Robert Reilly earned honorable mention.

It would not only be called stupendous but colossal. An invited group of campus "executives,” however, were content to let it go at ‘‘the best Varsity show ever produced at S.C.,” following a sneak preview in Bovard auditorium yesterday. In that respect alone the critics were playing a Hollywood role: they were content to allow the merit* of the show to spread by word-of-mouth around S.C. Instead of applying the usual adjectives. “A cast of thousands.” "The greatest epic ever produced," or "A sure academy winner.” To tell the truth, the cast num- gland, the lecturer added.
