LRY EXHIBIT INCLUDES RARE AND
CURIOUS VOLUMES ON NEW WORLD

(By Prof. A. L. Cross)
Attention should again be called to
the renarkable exhibit, in the Univer-
sity Library, of rare maps and books
relating to America, especially to New
England and Massachusetts. By means
of this material one can learn how
what was once a remote and shadowy
region, was regarded by imaginative
men of learning in the old world, and
by hardy pion'eers who first enter-
prised the discovery and planting of
the new. The occasion for giving the
people of Ann Arbor this unique bibli-
ographical treat is the celebration of
the tercentenary of the landing of the
Pilgrims on Dec. 21, 1920. Librarian
Bishop has made a representative se-
lection from the rich collection of Re-
gent W. L. Clements, whose library of
Americana is second only to the Lenox
library, now a part of the New York
public library, and the famous John
Carter Brown library of Providence.
Miss Wead, curator of rare books, and
other members of the University of
Michigan staff have prepared descrip-
tions of the several items of the ex-
hibit supplementing those from Mr.
Clements' own catalogue.
Includes Map
There are several maps, beginning
with that from Solinus' celebrated
Polyhistor, the work of a notable
scholar of the third century. The map
from the reprint of 1520 now on exhi-
bition appeared within 20 years of that
of Juan de la Cosa, the first which,
after Columbus' discovery, aimed to.
portray the American continent.
Among, the works relating specifi-
cally to New England are two gems of
the Clements collection-Brereton's
(1602) -and Rosier's (1605) accounts ofa
the voyages of Gosnold and Waymouth.
Also there is a copy (1616) of the De-
scription of New England by Captain
John Smith of Pocahontas fame, as
daring and resourceful as he was
doubtful in veracity.
Plymouth Described
Plymouth in the hardy early years
is described by Edward Winslow's
Good News (1624), while Pastor Rob-
inson of Leyden, whom obstinate cir-
cumstances prevented from crossing
to the new home of his Pilgrim flock,
is represented by his Observations,
Divine and Moral (1626).1 Admirable
satire is to be found in the New Eng-

lish Canaan by that amusing scape-
grace Thomas-Morton. Then there are
controversial tracts; for example be-
tween the prolific time-server John
Cotton, author of more than 40 pam-
phlets, and that disquietingly coura-
geous champion of "soul liberty,"
Roger Williams, Furthermore, there
are works denouncing and defending
the Quakers, there are collections of
laws, accounts of Indian wars and
vivid contemporary descriptions of
New England manners and customs.
A Splendid Selection
A few more works might have been
included in this representative selec-
tion of upwards of 50 titles, among
them Nathaniel Ward's Simple Cobbler
of Agawam, an Eliot Bible and a Bay
Psalm Book with its rough unmelo-
dious metre. Of course Bradfor4l's
peerless History of the Plymouth
Plantations could not, be included,
since less than half a century ago it
existed only in a unique manuscript
in the library of the Bishop of London
at Fulham. Altogether, however, this
is a splendid selection from one of the
most notable of existing libraries of
Americana.

Detroit Citizens Wastiing Life A A
(By AssociatedPress)
Detroit, Mich., Jan. 12.--The aver-'
age Detroit citizen who rides to work
and home again on street cars, if he
began work when 20 years of ag.e n
continued until he was 60, would
spend enough time in car riding dur
ing the 40 years to take a four-year
course in law at any university, an-
have about 3,000 hours left, accordir-
to figures compiled by oTiciuas of il
betroit Board of Commerce. The
average Detroit citizen rides on ithe
street cars at least one hour each day,
in going to and from work, or
hours a week, according to board ofli-
cials. This means 300 hours a year
figuring out two weeks annually for
vacation. In the course of 40 years U
spends 12,000 hours in riding. s

Mrs. Fox was bragging one day about the
large number of her cubs.
"How, many cubs do you bring into the
world at one time?" she asked the LIONESS.
"Only ONE," replied the Lioness-"but it's

MURADS COST 20 CENTS for a BOX

MURADS would be lower priced if we left out all
or part of the 100% Turkish tobaccos of the purest and
best varieties grown-or if we substituted inferior grades
of Turkish tobacco.
