HEADQUARTERS IN MODERN BUILDING:
Press Publishes Many Scholarly Works at 'U'
OH PLEASE-Registration at the University is a mechanical
process in which it seems no amount of pleading can help any
student get into a class which has the "filled" trademark-in-
scribed upon it. To the bewildered freshman trying not to be
stuck with a noon English 23 class through to the most aloof
senior who "absolutely will not take a Saturday class under any
circumstances," the process is one of the constant heart failure
until all classes are duly recorded.
By KATHLEEN MOORE
The University Press is a Uni-
versity department concerned
with scholarly publishing.
The University Press annually
publishes a wide variety of books.
Books written by scholars which
appeal to the general public, and
books written by scholars for use
of fellow-scholars in highly-
specialized fields of interest ap-
pear regularly on its publications
New Quarters in 1956
Before the University Press
moved into its present quarters,
a modern building at 412 May-
nard completed in the spring of
1956, its offices were scattered
around the campus: in the Gen-
eral Library, the Rackham Build-
ing, and in an old building on
The Press now shares its quar-
ters with the Official Publica-
tions Office, which issues all of-
ficial bulletins including the Time
Schedule used by students during
registration and the Publications
Distribution Service which
handles the billing, shipping, and
accounting for all publishing de-
partments on campus.
Preparing Comprehensive History
The University Press is current-
ly preparing the publication of a
comprehensive history of the
modern world. Four of the 15
volumes dealing with practically
every area In the world will be re-
leased this fall. They are "Latin
America: A Modern History," by
J. Fred Rippy; "Russia and the
Soviet Union: A Modern History,"
by Warren B. Walsh; "The Near
East: A Modern. History," by Wil-
liam Yale; and "The Far East: A
Modern History," by Nathaniel
The other 11 volumes in the set
will be released during the next
three years. When finished the
University's history of the modern
world, written by leading his-
torians, will provide Americans
with a"firm grasp of their (other
nations') historical past" accord-
ing to Allan Nevinsco-editor.
Prof. Gordon C. Brown of the
School of Public Health reaf-
firmed yesterday the potency and
safety of the Salk polio vaccine.
Referring to the polio outbreak
in Detroit, Prof. Brown said, "The
record of the vaccine is good in
this current epidemic. The serious
cases have not been completely
The professor is one'of. a group
studying the viruses which caused
this outbreak. He revealed many
of the non-paralytic cases which
outwardly have the appearance of
poliomyelitis are actually being
caused by viruses other than
polio, including mumps.
"The other viruses are so simi-
lar that it is impossible to make
a clinical differentiation between
them and polio," Prof. Brown
"It is not surprising so many
people are hospitalized even
though they have had the three
shots," the professor continued.
"Polio vaccine does not prevent
these other diseases."
Of those cases which turned
out to be polio, the majority of
the people did not have any shots
at all, Prof. Brown noted. "There
hasn't been a single confirmed
case of polio in a completely vac-
cinated person - one having had
all three shots," he said.
UNIVERSITY PRESS-The building above was opened in 1956 to house the University Press offices
which were scattered about campus. Publishing many scholarly textbooks, highly specialized books,
and general interest books, the Press shares its quarters with the Official Publications Office.'

gang von Buddenbrock to a study
of the tides in "Ebb and Flow" by
Among the books written for a
highly specialized audience are

edited by Hans Kurath which has
been in preparation for 30 years.
The work, which is published in

perts in Middle English. v
H. Ashley Weeks, of the Uni-
versity business administration
school, is author of another very
specialized book, "Youthful Of-
fenders at Highfields." The book
is a survey of the effects of a new
sort of psychology in the treat-
ment of juvenile delinquents, and.
is useful to scholars in the field.
The University Press publishes
a vast variety of scholarly books
of all types. Many, including the
forthcoming "Religion - and the

ter, provide both interesting and
informative reading for the gen-
eral public, and. specific informa-
