Skyscraper Proof Against Tremblor Tall Steel-Frame Buildings Staitd Test in California, Japan By HOWARD W. BLAKESLEE Associated Press Science Editor NEW YORK — (/P) — Earthquake waves have to climb to the tops of modern skyscrapers—and even quake waves get a little tired doing that. This—very approximately—is a one. sentence statement of the complicated things which happen during an earthquake to give the steel skelton skyscraper its reputation of being the safest big business building.-.-In the California quake these buildings^ again stood their ground; ••.••-•*••*&• '" Like a Whip's Motion '' The quake wave shifts the ground floor of the skyscraper as if a giant hand had a grip on the basement and were jerking it back and forth, paral- "lel with the surface. If the skyscraper were as rigid as it 'leeks, its top would move in unison and synchronously with the basement. But steel buildings are not rigid. They are elastic. The result is analogous to a similar motion jerking'the handle of an upstanding buggy v*iip. The motion travels upward along both the whip and the.skyscraper, in Waves. Topping the buggy whip the waves causes a snap. That snap at the top is one important point where skyscrapers and buggy whips differ. The towering steel building's top does not whip-snap, for its semi-rigid frame has absorbed Inost of the energy of the wave before the top is reached. Pulls Other Way When the quake giant jerks the basement to the left, the steel a few stories above is resisting, trying to go the other way, and absorbing part of the energy of the upward traveling wave. So the wave proceeds upward, losing a little energy at each stage, getting more and more "tired." This energy-absorbing motion is only the beginning of the application of engineering principles which give the final factor of safety. Trim Vamp offset this buildings are designed in quake areas with oscillation periods different from the quake waves. In Japan the most destructive quake waves have oscillation periods of from one second to one and a half seconds. So many buildings have been erected with oscillating periods of only one- half a second these short wave routes serve to "damp," that is cut down, the longer quake waves that try to spread upward through such buildings. In practice in the United States a •20-story steel frame building capable of withstanding a wind pressure of 30 pounds a square foot at the top is considered safe against any shock that might reasonably be expected. It is in buildings taller than 30 stories and particularly those up to 40 6r 50 stories that the strangling effect upon the upward traveling quake waves if; calculated to work best. Martend, %6kC Now in Congress Ponca City (Okfa.) Oil Man Lost Fortune, Is Democratic Representative Ay HERBERT PLtMMER Associated Press Correspondent WASttlNGtON-^Of all the new crop of representnUves on Capitol hill—and there are so many that it will require weeks to be able to recognize them off the floor—probably few are being watched trtore keenly than Marland of Oklahoma, He hasn't done or said anything in the hfcusa M yet, but enough Is known of him and his history to attract the attention of those who frequent the galleries. The son of n Pennsylvania oil man, Marland decided to go it on his own alter graduating in law, and struck out for Oklahoma agout 1907 just when cil was opening up. He bought corduroys and a cow pony and rode his own pipe lines as they were laid into one of the first big pools. He grew to be one of the few outstanding millionaires in Oklahoma. He developed Ponca City, a millionaire's town, and considered one of the most beautiful small towns in the country. A descendant of a feudal English family, he has a strong sense of noblesse oblige. He used this philosophy in building up his oil company. He built a model Club house for his men where an institute of geology, club rooms and living quarters were housed under the same roof. He opened up his private fiolf course to the entire city and built a beautiful Spanish style civic building. Then he started wondering what 'else he could do and finally determine 'od to build a home fine enough to be turned into an artists' haven when he was through with it. He had both Hampton Court and Versailles gardens copied, running at tan-wise angles from one side of his home. It was his idea to bring traditional beauty to that spot with the hope of inculcating a love of beauty in all who came to see. Even the garages and servant quarters were in the same beautiful Spanish stylo and could be turned into 'studios whenever some artist friend dropped in and wanted quiet and a place to work. Time Off For Play time and fjesire could leave their jobs any clay ut 4 o'clock to play golf or polo. He had a string of '10 polo pcnies his men could use at any time and he held the first largo polo tournament in the state on his private field. Now he has lost practically everything. His home is closed and when Ut Ponca City he lives in one of his own studios. He is a close personal friend of Patrick Hurley, former secretary of war, and the two are such cronies that it is said last fall prior to the election Hurley canceled his speaking engagements, within Marland's district because he didn't wish to work against his friend, who was running on the democratic ticket.

LOSES 10 GALLONS OP SAP FOR EVEftV QUART BY BRUCE SATTON It is hard to get a look at the real j personality of Marie Antoinette. The | revolutionists called her a compendium of all the vices, and tho royalists, after the Bourbon restoration, saw her as a saint who could do no j wrong; and for most of us she is a i cardboard figure, bright, tinselled— and unreal. Stefan Zweig brings her to life in 'Marie Antoinette; the Portrait of an Average Woman"; and it is his subtitle that gives the key to her character. She was, he says, an Average Woman—and that was her tragedy. Fate | put her in a place where she had to ! be a great ruler, a second Marie Theresa, and Ihe job was beyond her. She had the faults of the Average j Woman, and in her position those ve- j nial faults became high crimes. Not ! until she was lodged in the Concier-' gerie, awaiting the guillotine, did her j real greatness awaken; and then it was too late. • Mr. Zweig absolves her from the | calumnies of the revolutionists. She j was woefully indiscreet, frequently rather silly, he says, but never loose or depraved. But he insists that the royalists are equally wrong in their appraisal of her; she had one lover, the Swedish count, Fersen, and she gave him the love and passion that Louis XVI could not arouse in her. And Fersen served her at the rick of Ills neck, and their love affair is one of the great romances of history. 'Marie Antoinette" is an uncommonly fine biography.

Barrymore, the Royal Family of stage i and screen, was one of the biggest problems ever faped by a casting director, when the huge list of players appearing in Metro-Goldwyn-Myer^s "Rasputin and the Empress" Was chosen. In the dramatic spectacle of the last days of the Romanoffs, now showing at the Saenger, not only appear the members of the most famous theatric, al family in the world, but the most imposing list* of supporing players ever gahercd. Every role, even to the smallest, is filled by an atist of international fame. The result is a cast that reads like the Hollywood "Blue Book." Two of ttie Barrymores enact royal personages, John playing the role of Prince Chegodieff, and Ethel enacting the ill-fated Empress. The role of the Mad Monk, whose plotting is a forerunner to the fall of the Russian empire, is played by Lionel Barrymore. This should proce, as the manager states, truly the picture of the season.

I Shall it continue to roam through! March and April, coming one year when snow is on the ground and another when spring flowers arc in full ( bloom'.' I Variation Termed Nuisance I Or shall the churches, forgetting tradition, agree to a fixed date, thus placing themselves in alliance with various groups who contend that the feast day's variable occurence is a nuisance to business, financial and educational systems? These arc some of the questions which the research department of the Federal Council of Churches, acting on instructions from the council's ex. ccutivc committee, is trying to answer. In dcing so the department is studying the attitude of he council's 26 sing, f denominational members to calendar reform in general as well as to the stabilization of Easter in particular. Calendar Change Involved The .survey is being undertaken at the request of the Universal Christian Council of Life and Work, at Geneva, acting at the instance of the League j of Nations, which has long been studying the question of a new calendar. Proponents of calendar reform point out that under the present system Easter can fal Ion any one of 35 dates. Furthermore, they say, the clothing and millinery trades make Easter a pivotal point.. If it falls early, people won't buy spring outfits; if it falls late, they may wear winter clothing till Easter, then change to summer styles, neglecting spring outfits entirely. A variable Easter, they argue, disrupts school vacation schedules and affects communication programs. Many Nations Approve The Lutjue of Nations reports that 26 governments, including France, Germany, Spain, Grc;it Britain and the United States, have endorsed its act for the stabili/ation of Easter. The Sunday following he second Saturday in April has been suggested by some governments us suitable for the observance. A fixed date, »ach as Sunday, April H. which would be possible if a perpetual calendar should be adopted, is preferred by some groups and individuals. Front Sired Phone 23U NEXT WEEK .....
