JOHN PEAKE LENS TESTED BY EXPERTS Lens Found To Be Unsafe For Mounting Because Of Great Internal Strain [Newspaper Article] — American Eagle — 4 June 1928
JOHN PEAKE LENS TESTED BY EXPERTS Lens Found To Be Unsafe For Mounting Because Of Great Internal Strain The 62 . 5 inch reflecting lens , kept in the Hurst Hall reading room since 1898 , when it was presented to the University by John Peake , its maker , was tested by four experts on Monday afternoon , May 20 , to ascertain its actual value . The results were somewhat disappointing , as the lens , which it had been hoped was worth several thousand dollars , at it had been the largest in the world when it was made and is still one of the largest , was found to have been cooled too rapidly when made and , as a result , was so greatly strained internally as to be in danger of exploding if mounted in an observatory . According to the Bureau of Standards experts , two of whom helped in the testing , the lens can be made useably only if reheated and cooled properly , which would probably cost $ 2 , 000 . This of course will not be done unless some especially valuable use is found for the ...

FACULTY TO SPEND BUSY VACATIONS Miss Brown , Dr . Kinsman , And Mr . Fleming To Spend Summer Abroad Activity seems to be the keynote of the plans of the various members of the faculty for the coming summer , but there the similarity stops , for our faculty are quite cosmopolitan in their tastes as to how a vacation should be spent . In fact , it is astounding to think that a group Who can work so compatibly together for a whole year should , upon being given their freedom , turn to such a diversity of tasks . The Dean , as if to set an example , has proclaimed his intention of turning the summer months into days of accomplishment . He will do editorial work on a book that he is preparing and will consequently see the inside of the Library of Congres 3 a great deal , much to the envy of many of Doctor Golder s classes . Dr . Hutchins will travel to the land of the rock-bound coast , where more specifically , he will settle at Hendricks . The call of England seems to be particularly l...

A notice had appeared on the college bulletin board announcing that a tug-of-war , Frosh vs . Soph , was to take place that evening . The Freshmen knew that if they could supply the right kind of pull and win one of the odious Freshman rules would be removed . The Freshmen felt confident and not without reason . With a man and a half like Folsom for anchor , and with nineteen other men pulling with everything they had , it seemed that they just couldn t lose . Evidently the Sophomores felt much the same way , for when the time came for the tug-of-war , well , there just wasn t any . It was one of those no contest affairs . Old Lady Rumor evidently had discussed the matter with some of 1 the Freshies , for the whisper soon went round that the Sophomores thought it a little too risky to ...
