(UP)—"Rock of Ages" is not only a .song to Prof. Edward L. Troxell of Trinity college, it is a part of his "instrument." Prof. Troxell, who teaches geology at Trinity and Ls .state geologist, has constructed a xylophone from pieces of rock he picked up on field trips throughout Connecticut, One of the •bigger problems presented by this strange instrument Ls what, to ca)l it. A stickler for.Accuracy, Prof. Troxell can't determine whether ii should be a "petrophone, lithophone." or the more scientific "peiro-euuhonium." The whole idea terminated when Prof. Troxell made a trip through Shemmdoah Caverns and saw a guide strike a stalacitite and produce n sound. When lie returned to Connecticut he started searching for a lava formation that .mighl produce rocks of the proper resonance. He found an ideal deposit on Avon Mountain where the lava formations have splintered and columns as long as three feet are pvailable. He took a load of these back to college and with the aid of a 10-cent pitch pipe arranged PAGE THREfc, them according to pilch. Prof. Troxell has collected more than 100 columns'out, of which he lias made a scale exceeding three octaves above and below 'middle C. He has not been able u> gel all of the luil f I ones yet. The instrument is adusted to standard pitch. He raises the. pitch of a rook by chipping off a piece- at the end. To low pitch, a more delicate operation, lie chisels uit.s from the sides. The instrument is played by us in;.', regular rubber xylophone hammers. No virtuoso, Ihe profes- soi h:u confined hLs efforts to the well - known composition "Chop- Mk-k.s"-_ of \vhich he tflves a scholarly rendition. However, lie feels that in tlu 1 hands of an expert hLs Sionc A'je Steinway would produce a mellow, true tone as «ood if no; better. Uum a wooden xylo- phone.

Tex. < UP)—Others may piny with miniature railway systems, but Q. B, Graves, University jif Texas civil engineer, has found both entertainment and knowledge by operating a miniature system of water mains. The knowledge gained was that the same amount of water can be supplied through smaller 'v/ater mains by proper arrangement of sizes to equalize the pressure. When an engineer decides exactly what type main will equalize the pressure, water supply costs go down. Graves' tests have demonstrated that the pressure in two pipes leading to the same outlet varies.

Miss Kenny last year treated successfully 55 per cent of these, according to attestations from hospital authorities. Other methods of treatment, it is s:\id, average about 44 per cent successful.

"I shall return to the United States and to Minneapolis with a great feeling of gratitude," she said. "T had gone a.s far as I could with my work in Australia. I knew that if T could present my findings to scientists. I could convince them that, with my research and experience, greater hope could be offered paralysis sufferers.
