Jelly "shivers" because it i full of tiny springs that rebound to the touch like an automobile spring going over a bumpy road, Alcoholic molecules have peculiar habits which made a drink Bore intoxicating when sipped slowly from the top. ' Atoms, molecules and colloidal particles, the sticks and stones . or scientific housebuilding, form t nto definite patterns In the con struction of all matter, much as materials are built Into "buildings according to specified plans. These, discoveries were told last tllght. by. Dr. James W. McBain, professor of chemistry at Stanford University, in an address on 'Structure In Amorphous and Colloidal Matter." in Wheeler auditorium, University of California, before the Pacific division, American Association for the Advancement of Science. j moleCul.es photographed. Diagrams of particles of', matter ao small. aa to be invisible under the most powerful mlcroscspe, magnified 1,000,000 times by the X-ray and other remarkable scientific artifices, were thrown in a screen bV Dr. McBain to illustrate, his address. There -was the picture of an in-tljiitesmsj section of Jelly just ordinary jelly Ilk mother makes--With its strings or chains of colloidal particles, each containing 1000 molecules, THese chains- , "t ibrlls" are curved, and Dr: ;M-L Bain explained how their, curya- tare, one against the other, .caused the whole mass to'aet Ulte springs. "This accounts , for the enormous elastio properties even of flowing Jellies," said the Stanford chemist. "For-'instancei here is a slowly flowing solution of ordinary water glass which, upon' being thrown down, b6urtces like a-rubber ball." ; T.TOHin 'WOUND' lilltE SPRING Whereupon he took a small bait of water glass the stuff , house wives use for preserving , eggs In a sticky state somewhat ilk that of a soft gum, and bounced fit on the floor -to show his dts-- ttngulshed audience of fellow scientists what he meant. Dr. McBain's next prise from his scientific bag- of tricks was a liquid which he "would up" by rotation Jn a glass decanter. "The liquid, ammonium oleate, a soapy fluid enly slightly thicker than water, elopped and "unwound Itself" when he Stopped the rotation. His explanation was that the "fibrils" or ehalns of colloid particles, similar . to those In Jelly, were stretched Or straightened by the motion, but curved again and thus became shorter when it stopped. - Their shortening caused the . liquid to move the other way In the decanter. ... Next he gave girls an Idea of what they might see If .they could look at a speck of platinum from their engagement rings in solution under the, 2 ray. The aptck,, known as an unstable colloid particle, appeared in the diagram he threw en the screen as a block 'of 20 platinum atoms, set In four "even rows of .five each. This block "was surrounded by'a complex platinum compound similar to water, known as hexahy-droxyplatlnic acid. .It consisted, of "platinum atoms, each covered with six little stabilizing gents merging Into water; COMPOSmOJi EXPLAINED." ' '.'The motto of the colloids,, like that of the house painter, Is Jave the surface and you save ally' Dr. McBain pointed out'. "The essential feature of- our particle: is" the acid which covers the surface. The part which Is contact with the water is Ilk water so much so that tlge water never knows the particle' Is floating around-tn it. 'The protective covering, or stabilizing agent, is responsible for the particle's stability nd behavior." Next was a diagram of alcohol tn solution,- the effect, for drinking purposes, being the same as that of wlisky, gin or any other liquor. Dr. McBain explained. Clear across the top of the water stood the alcohol molecules, crom-ding. Into every available bit of space and standing erect as sol-- diers. Below this "layer" other , molecules depended in strings into ' the lower water, with here and Dollar Sign of In Indies, BERKELEY, Jane SI.

Sometimes an astronomer's prophecy Is more accurate thsn even' the pronhet himself believes. ' This was the deduction drawn from a report made, yesterday by Dr.. A. O. Leuschner, director of the University of California students' observatory, and Maud W. Makemson, research assistant 1 in astronomy, before the Astronomical Society of 1"?e Pacific, meeting in conjunction with tha American Association for tha. Advancement of Science convention. In. 1901 Dr. Leuschner and Professor R. T. Crawford and Astronomer F. E. Ross, now , of Yerkes observatory, computed the orbits of minor planets under the disturbing influence of Jupiter, the report rtated. The scientists then believed their", work would hold true' until 1930. and' would then have to be refigured on the basis of motion actually observed In these plants. ; .Their eornputatlons were so. accurate, however,' that, it Is now believed the original figures probably .will hold good for many years to come, the. report sets forth. - U. of C. Agronomist Traces Barley to 'Asia BERKELEY, June 21. Barley, like man, appears, to have origin, ated in central Asia. W. W. Mackl, associate agronomist' at -the University of California, declared at the American Association for the Advancement of Science convention today; , ' j there a loose bit of alcohol floating about unattached. . . , "Thus the. alcohol is seen to be thickest at the top, and consequently the top of the drink Is strongest," the chemist declared In a non-technical explanation in conjunction with his lecture. . Other diagrams shown included chains of soap atoms forming molecules that looked like bristles of two scrubbing' brushes stuck' together; a thin film of oil on water, with long molecules forming the layer like little parallel chains.; a microscopic particle of rubber latex something similar In shape to' a tadpole with a "skin" which has to be' torn open to get at a honey-Ilke substance in its center, and . squads- of ' molecules- lined up In ranks and performing flanking evolutions like drill teams In a certain kind of cocoanut oil soap. The last diagram; was of plain watetvr molecules which, though somewhat Jumbled in pattern,, still demonstrated Dr.' McBain's contention that the building materials of matter tend to, arrange themselves In fixed designs mostly parallel. ... TODAY'S PROGRAM. Today's sessions, included reading "of scientific papers before societies meeting-' lnr cotrjunctlon ' with the general convention and an excursion- to the Lick Observatory, Mount Hamilton, starting at 2:30 p. m., Psychologists were to gather at;a banquet at 8:30 o'clock tonight In Stephens Union.

"Fifty-eight of thV 90 known elements on esrtb have already been found In the sun,," he declared. "Among those elements most prominent in the sun's makeup, or most recently discovered, are magnesium, iron, silicon, sodium, potassium,' calcium, atomic carbon , nitrogen, oxvgen snd salphnr.'' BERKELEY, Juns 21. Science, after measuring almost everything else in the universe, . has now sought to apply Us yardstick to human skill. ' .- ' Details of a measurln gdevice for this purpose were described by H. C. Gilhousen, teaching' fellow in -psychology at the University of California, before the Western Psychological association, meeting here together with the A. A. A. S. convention. 1 . The maehlne, which, 'according to Us Inventor, will measure the accuracy of human reactions to fslon in a changing brder. -consists ot a movable roa , somewnai uue the gear shift of an automobile. Tha. person whose skill Is being measured iraps the end of the rod and shoves it in a particular direction, when he lees a , certain color. Four colors are ahown, their order- being changed rapidly. - The father end of the rod records his movements on a paper scroll, showjng the number of times he did as he was told. , Cyclones Laid to ' Atmospheric 'Fault' v BERKELEY1- June' 21. The causa ot oyclotlss In the far. western states, was revealed today in a report, presented,-at a meeting o the American Meteorological society, by E. H. Bowie meteorologist in charge of the United States department of " agriculture wea.ther bureau at Ban Francisco. An atmosphereio "fault," formerly unknown to the scientific world, Is the "breeding" place of these cyclones, Bowie, explained to tho society. ."The fault, caused by failure of two atmospheric strata to 'fit, is notably defined during the warm summer months, and not infrequently advances eastward," the meteorologist said. "While, the fault, advances it produces within it many of our cyclones that are first observed in the summer season- over the far western states. . The two masses of air Involved In the formation of the fault are the hot, dry air of the Interior of the war west, and the oo id- humid air of the waters off our western coast. The faults are counterparts,-' in a sense, of geological faults.". Rata Prove Mental "A Traits Inherited BERKELEY, June 31. If a rat la intelligent, his progeny are likely to inherit: his mental ability. This Is the conclusion Dr, Robert C. . Tryon, research fellow .In psychology at the. University of California, expects to reach from his studiea wlth a large group of the rodents,, he declared today in an address before the Western Psychological association, meeting in conjunction with the A. A. A. 8, convention here. . - Dr. Tryon hopes to prove that mental ability can be Inherited, a point over- which psychologists have disputed for years. He drives his rats through a maze, and holds a stop watch on them to aee how long It takes tbem to find -their way out. The rats which learn the exit most quickly are parents -of the smartest baby rats, he believes. Student Finds Error In Theory of Heredity . BERKELEY, June 21 Upsetting of a theory concerning the female germ cells In mammals long held, by science was accomplished today' in a' report made by Dr. Hermert M. EvanS, chairman of the University of California anatomy department, and -discoverer of two vitamins, and Olive Swezy; The report; Tead at a meeting of the,' thirteenth annual convention of the Pacific division, American Association for the Advancement of Science, showed that the germ plasm theory, by which it was be-; Ueved hereditary characteristics wsre handed down from one generation to- -another, is Incorrect. Studies on men and animals have demonstrated, the report states, that., the germ cells, heretofore thought to remain unaltered throughout life; are in reality being constantly formed, and destroyed from before birth- until old age Is reached. - r .

' ' This was the forecast made today by Dr.'H. K, Benson, professor of chemical engineering at the University of Washington, before the American Chemical Society at the A. A. A. S. .convention here. . "Because of its abundant cheap power, Intelligent labor and raw materials, this coast is soon to play an important part In chemical In dustries," Dr.. Benson declared. "The United States has sdvanced during the last 25 years from a position of comparative Insignificance in chemical Industry to world leadership with an annual production exceeding $4,275,000,000 and a domestic consumption of more than 90 per cent. This extraordinary growth has not yet. reached the Pacific coast, for until recently the west has taken little part In this field of development. ' ',' "Nevertheless this Section is .not lacking tn the potentialities Of great Industrie, and the time Is coming when, we will participate fully In them. Ours is the task or subjugating nature and converting great stores of natural resources - lpto commodities ,that shall flow Into the chatinels.of trade and reach world markets." . .
