CLEMENTS LIBRARY:
Relics from Captain Cook's Voyage Exhibited

FRANKFURT, Germany (W'
-Madame Baboon, who likes
steeples but hates needles, was
back in the zoo last night after
a night out on the town - way
up on the town.
The two and one-half year
old runaway descended from
the slender spire of St. Nico-
lai's Church after almost 20
hours aloft.
Its believed keepers, who had
stood watch through a night of
;ub-freezing temperatures, pre-
pared a welcome.
Btt the baboon took one look
at them and was off again
across the rooftops.
After several hours the ape
was trapped by her keepers, who
used an apple as bait, and was
returned to the zoo.
She had broken away when
ihe was about to be injected
with a tuberculosis vaccine.

By PHILIP SHERMAN
The spirit of one of the world's
greatest explorers has come to the
University in an exhibit on Cap-
tain Cook in the Clements Library.
It is part of a series of exhibits
in which the Library will display
part of its valuable historical col-
lection.
Prof. Howard H. Peckham, Di-
rector of the Library and faculty
member of the history department,{
item in the exhibition" a book
containing samples of cloth that
Cook had brought back from the
South Seas. The book contains
about 100 samples of the cloth,
which was made by beating the
bark of the tappa tree.
Cloths Hand Decorated
The cloths themselves are all
hand decorated, many in patterns
similar to the type of designs now

fashionable in men's shirts and
ties. Each type of cloth, Prof.
Peckham explained, has a specific
purpose-for tents, for clothing,
and even a few on which to make
human sacrifices.
The whole exhibit consists of a
group of books about the voyages
of Captain Cook that were writ-
ten in the late 1700's following his
explorations. All of the books, in-
cluding several acquired this sum-
mer, are from the Library's own
collection, he said.
Voyages Successful
"All of the three voyages had
definite scientific purposes and
were successful," Prof. Peckham
pointed out. He outlined the spe-
cific accomplishments of each of
the three trips:
Cook's first voyage, lasting from
1768-71 was made in order to ob-

serve the transit of Venus across'
the sun.
Made between 1772 and 1775,1
the second voyage "proved" to
geographers of the day that no
southern continent (Antartica) ex-
isted.
On his third voyage, Cook ex-
plored much of Alaska and what
is now the west coast of the Unit-
ed States and Canada and discov-
ered Hawaii.
Each of these voyages were de-
scribed in an "Official Report,"
issued by the Admiralty, which is
on display in the Library,
There are also many "unofficial
reports" which, Prof. Peckham
