What will ultimately mean a vast
improvement in elementary French
textbooks and a great conservation of
energy for students of that tongue in
learning a French vocabulary, is the
table of useful French words now
under formation by Prof. A. G. Can-
field. The table, which will consist of
perhaps 500 French words, is the first
of its kind ever attempted and is being
formulated with the aid of French
students in the University who expect
to teach.
The table will ascertain in a thor-
ough and systematic way what is the
most useful vocabulary for the stu-
dent of French. It will consist of
words occurring in all sorts of read-
ing, making the latter much easier.

text most frequently used in element-
ary French reading were examined
and the frequency of the use of words
established. Later, different kinds of
text books were examined and similar
tables of frequency established. After
the perusal of five or six more texts a
comparison will be made and a com-
mon and useful vocabulary formed.
Useful to French Students
"French textbooks," said Professor
Confield, "do not give a useful vocabu-
lary. They give perhaps 70 useful
words, and the remainder are transi-
tory. The table which I am preparing
will be so devised that words occur-
ring all of the time will not have to
be looked up, and will be very useful
to French students."

Began Two Years Ago
The collection of data was begun
two years ago by Professor Canfield
when the vocabularies of elementary
French textbooks most in use were
examined.
"Of the 25 books examined," said
Professor Canfield, "I discovered in
them little apparent attempt to ascer-
tain in ,the material used the most
useful vocabulary."

Articles written for the Associated
Press by students in the University
taking courses in journalism have re-
ceived favorable attention and are
being syndicated by that organization,
according to a statement given yes-
terday by Prof. John L. Brumm, head
of the journalism department.
"It has been found," continued Pro-
fessor Brumm, "that the articles need
little editing and that the only altera-
tions made in them have been for the
purpose of cutting them to a given
space or adapting them to the style
peculiar to the various papers in
which they have been published."
The purpose of students writing
articles for publication is to give them
actual experience in newspaper work.
Thus far stories have been sent in for
syndication at the rate of two or three
a week. \
OVER 18,000 BOOKS ADDED TO
U. OF M. LIBRARY LAST YEAR
Ann Arbor, Mich., Dec. 6.--More
than 18,000 books were added to the
University of Michigan libraries dur-
ing the fiscal year ending June 30 last,
according to William Warner Bishop,
University librarian. Of the number,
14,500 were purchased from a fund
provided by the Board of Regents. The
remainder were donations.

Only a few days remain before Christmas. There is no time to be lost
now, with so many people to remember and so many things to buy. Christ-
mas Day will not be happy if we have to think of friends we have neglected,
or overlooked, n the rush of preparations for the holidays.
How mightily the Christmas spirit adds to the value of things a few
dollars will buy -- for after all, it is the thought and good will that goes
with the gift that creates happiness.
Now is the time to buy, while there is still plenty of variety to choose
from. Every department has suitable things for gifts. Gifts for mother, dad,
sis, brother and the children. Let us help you in your selection.
