VOL. XXXIV. Noo. 7


Washington, D. C., Sept. 29-Leaders
in the South have become weary overj
the manner in which the existing Fed-
eral Reclamation Policy has operated
and are determined to lead a move-
ment to enlarge that policy. This is
plainly indicated in a letter by Clem-
ent S. Ucker, executive chairman of
the Forestry, Reclamation, and Immi-
gration conference to be held Nov. 19
to 22 in New Orleans.r
Mr. Ucker, in his letter to the House
Committee on Appropriations, urges
that the present expensive policy, tak-
ig in the West particularly, be also
made to include the South and other
sections of the country that hold "far
more attractive opportunities, as
shown by the survey made; in 1919 by
the reclamation service."
It has been predicted that the New
Orleans conference will witness a de-
termined stand by the southern inter-
ests and members of Congress against
any further reclamation work by the
government unless the federal policy
is expanded to include reclamation
and land settlement in the South.
Mr. Ucker also criticises the laxity
dilplayed by the government in col-
lecting the amounts due the public.
treasury from western land owners
andethe alleged inefficient use of the
federal funds in the West.
Concerning the conference in No-.
vember, Mr. Ucker says: "Because of
the growing apprehension on the part
of citizens and taxpayers throughout,
the country that the real object of re-
clamation is being overlooked and that
Federal funds are being used less ef-
ficiently 1that should be, to produce de-
sired results, a number of us are call-
ing a conference to be held in New
Orleans, November 19 to 22, to con-
sider some of these factors and to
urge upon the new Congress the adop-
tion of a broader national program
of reclamation;s one which will more
nearly meet the present needs of the
"To this conference are being in-
vited governors of various states,
members of Congress, delegates ofl
Boards of Trade and other organiza-
tions for the purpoes of the discus-
-sion of: these important problems."
Hillsdale, Sept. 29-Hillsdale Col-
lege registration, now liearly complet-
ed, is running considerably ahead of
last year in all the upper classes. Of
seniors there is an increase of 40 per-
cent. The juniors gained 45 percent,
while the sophomores, with an 8 per-
cent gain, now number an even hun-
dred. *

Library Acquires
C optic Psalter
As a result of the efforts of Profes-
sor F. W. Kelsey, of the Latin de-
partment and Prof. II. A. Saunders,
in co-operation with the Humanistic
Research fund, the University library
has acquired a large collection of old
Coptic manuscripts. Added to those
which were purchased by the Univer-
sity last spring, and to a number of
important gifts of manuscripts, the
University's collection is rapidly
growing to enviable proportions.
One of the most important pieces
is a Coptic psalter, dating from the
thirteenth century. The workman-
ship is crude, and the specimen has
many interesting features. One of
the interesting peculiarities of it is
that though the text is in Coptic, the
headings are in Greek and Arabic.
A group of 20 fragments of a Cop-
tic bible, on vellum, composes an-
other important group. The frag-
ments, which are not in the best of
condition, range in size from pieces
18 inches square to very small ones.
They have all been identified and an-
noted by Hyvernat, the great Augus-
tinian scholar.
Other pieces of importance are a
service book in Coptic, and an Eth-
iopic magical scroll, on which are
four crude paintings. The contnts
of this document have not been defi
nitely ascertained as yet, but it is
thought to contain incantations and
other magical formulae. There 's
also a rare Nestorian Syriac service
book, dating from the sixteenth cen-
tury, and made at the monastery of
St. Gabriel, near Mossoul.
Geneva, Sept. 29-(By A. P.)-"Neg
ative" and "melancholic" were the
words employed by delegates at the
meeting of the League commission on
disarmament today in referring to a
recent communication from the U. S.
government explaining the reasons
why it cannot adhere to the conven-
tions for the control of traffic in arms.
This convention known as the treaty
of St.cGermain had been ratified by
many countries, and the league asked
the U. S. whether it would alto sub-
scribe. When the question was raised
today Lord Robert Cecil remarked that
the commission has received a letter
from the U. S. government which he
was sorry to say, was negative in
Chritian Lange, of Norway, charac-
terized the American answer as mel-
ancholic. The United States he said,
had explained the reason for non-ad-
herence but had given no implication
of what it would like done on the ques-
tion of traffic in arms. He hoped the
facts about the tariff would be given
the widest nublicity. It ought to be
made perfectly clear who was re-
sponsible for the delay and the re-
strictions of the tariff.
The commission adopted a resol-
'ton that the temporary mixed com-
mission for armament prepare the


S. C. A. Work Of
Year Opens Early
One of the most ambitious plans
ever attempted by the Student's
Christian association, in the opinion'
of its officials, is now well under way.
The association was able to begin
work exceptionally early due to the
summer planning of Mr. Hal Coffman,
the new secretary.

annual payment or $500 per year are
awarded annually by the Westing-

mated to have been met at trains by
representatives who gave every pos-
sible help to the new men.
Another of the works already com-
pleted was the conference of student
leaders held Sunday morning at the
Y. M. C. A. Camp Birkett, Silver lake.
Many of the problems confronting thet
campus this year were discussed and
solutions suggested.
The series of three lectures just fin-
ished by the Rev. Albert Parker Fitch
was the first of a number of lectures
delivered under the auspices of the
S. C. A. Since his arrival in Ann
Arbor, Reverend Fitch has attended
a number of conferences conducted by
the association to consider different
phases of their work in the University.
The S. C. A. was also the author of the
three informal gatherings held afterI
Reverend Fitch's lectures, one for men
only in Lane Ilall, one for women only
at Newberry Hall, and one for both'
men and women at Lane hall.
Wednesday Reverend Fitch address-
ed the Rotarians and Thursday after-
noon spoke to Ann Arbor high school

company to employees and sons on
the basis of ce~ai etitive examination.
'lhe plan which the company is using
provides for the graduation of four
men each year, the total number of
scholarships in force at one time be-
ing sixteen.
Men who are selected for these
awards by the company are selected,
for the most part, because of their
many adaptabilities. Intelligence,
physical qualities, aptitude for engin-
eering work, and the ability to shoul-
dier responsibility have been the gen-
eral points on which the candidates
are compared. The company in choos-
ing the men believes that physical
vigor generally indicates mental vig-
or and the physical qualities of the
applicant must be far above the aver-
age. One of the men who completed
the work last year graduated as a
leading man in the University of Pitts-
bmrgh engineering school.
Good scholarship records will not
necessarily mean the attaining of the
award. The men who will succeed
must be representative individuals in
the acivities of whatever society they
may be in.
It is intended that the men help
themselves considerably in complet-
ing the course as the scholarship is
intentionally not made large enough
to cover the entire expenses involved
