Discussion of The Relativity Theory and The The Quanta By Louis ROUGIER, Professeur Agrégé De Philosophie, Docte Cettres. Au
thorized Translation from the Author's Corrected T y MORTON MASIUS, M.A., Ph.D., Professor of Physics, Worcester Po ic Institute; Translator of M. Planck's "Theory of Radiation."
759 Pages. Cloth, $1.75 Postpaid.
The recent remarkable developments of physical theories, ully those concerned with relativity and quanta of energy, cannot fail to haur-reaching influences on philosophical thought. Professor Rougier's very wide reading in mathematical and experimental physics has enabled him to present and interpret the new advances in physics in a way which should prove of great interest to both philosopher and physicist. The book marks a measurable advance toward a confluence of the broad streams of philosophical and scientific enquiry.

Theory of the Relativity
of Motion With Appendix
In the New Spirit of Science
A supplement to this work, written by the
Appendix only (paper), 25 cents.
Founded on the belief that the pupil should be thoroughly grounded in the fundamentals of physics, it makes the pupil alive to the practical, everyday value of the subject. It is based on the authors' “First Course in Physics,” the most widely used textbook in the subject. Here is a book that is vitally interesting to the high school boy or girl, a book that arouses and maintains enthusiasm.

In making a determination of the H-ion concentration of a solution by the electrometric method, the actual measurement is one of potential difference, or voltage, between a hydrogen and a calomel electrode in contact with the solution. The H-ion concentration, or the Ph value, must then be found by reference to conversion tables or by calculation from an equation.
The H-ion Calculator is a slide rule, which, with one setting, converts the measured voltage into the corresponding Ph or Ch+ values. The conversion may be made accurately to the second decimal place.
The Calculator is very quick and convenient in operation. It is made of heavy celluloid, and measures 6 inches by 6 inches.
