MANY INSTALLATIONS FOR "ELECTRIC EYES" [~y Science Service More than two million installations arc waiting to be equipped with photo- electric devices or "electric eyes", Of estes H. Cahlwell, editor of Electron- ics and former Federal Radio Com- missioner, tohl the American Associa- tion for the Advancement of Science at Atlantic City, N. J., December 27. Over a million photo-electric cells could be used in schools, factories, of- rices and stores for turning light off and ,m as daylight (liras or hrightens. Mr. Caldwell compared the iml)-rt- ance (,f electronic tube development to Archimedes' classical discovery c,f the lever. "The vacuum tube is, in effeef, an electrical lever," Mr. Caldwell 'said. "Its grid input represents the short arm and its anode output the long arm. And just as the principle of the lever is used again and again in every element of every machine built in this mechauieal age, so the introduction of the vacuum tube aud its associated cir- cuits presents alm(*st inconceivable po- tentialities in the electrical future."

WORLD LOOKS DIFFERENT By Science Service Ultraviolet, invisible to human eyes, is visible to the eyes of im;ects, but red, visible to us, is not a color to them. This radical difference in color vision gives the world a wtstly differ- ~nt appearance to insects. How insects may look to each other through their ultraviolet-seeing eyes was demonstrated at Atlantic City, N. T., ])ecember 27, :tt the meeting of the American Association for lhc Ad- \auce:m'.t (ff Science, by Dr. Frank lmtz and Richard lhwlingame ,)f the American Museu:n of Natural His- tory. The two ent.moh}gists displayed a series ~)f butlerl]y and moth photo- .araphs taken by ultraviolet light, to- gether with a specially prepared scale t~f uhraviolet "color" values. The ultraviolet patlern ()f an insect may or may not correspond to the pat- tern wc see on it by visible light. Om~ !;pccimtm displayed ha(t spots (m its \xh~gs that are re(1 to human eyes, an,1 hence invisible to insect eyes. lint the same spots are rich in ultr:.tvlolet, and hence visible to insects by tha~ ra- diati~,n. In other species, the altravl- tdcl sl}ols overlap areas that by visible light Ii:lve several different huec. Malc and female buttertties nlay haxc the same uhra\-io!et xalue, l)ul in s{mlc species the sexc.~; differ. ~Vhcrc they d(~, it is usually the female that is "brighter" by ultraviolet. One co, n- inon buttertty species 'has two entirely different kinds (,f females, one being yellow like her mate, the other e;~lire- Ix, lackin,a in that color. But these "blonde" and "brunette" sisters are alike under the ultraviolet: except for small faint sl)ots they have no ultra- vi(fle! "color" at all They probably look just alike to the male, which see~ yclh~w po(~rly, if at all. One of the most in: :resting ()f t'he dls;)lays was of a common species ex- hibitiu~ the phenomenon known as mimicry. There are several different forms of females, each differing in color pattern from the male but re- sembling some "protected" species. This is supposed to fool preying birds and lizards. In the display, ultravi- olet photographs of "mimics" and "models" were shown together. They appear even more alike by ultraviolet than they do by ordinary light. Thus their mimicry extends into a fieht where it may have no practical value, 1)eeause while the ultraviolet-seeing nowers of birds and lizards have not been thoroughly investigated, they probably do not see by these short waves.
