A new moving picture camera, cap able of taking 3000 pictures a second and covering about one-third of a mile of film in three minutes, was demon strated recently before the College of Franoe by it* inventor, Professor Mag nan. By means of the camera the movement of the wings of a dragon fly In flight tnay be studied in detail on a screen. Students, saw a blue

bottle in flight-its wings move' up and down 200 times a second-and films of flying mosquitoes and butterflw.
