Mr. George R. Swain, photographer'
with the University of Michigan ex-
pedition to Mesopotamia, returned
Tuesday morning to Ann Arbor. With,
him Mr. Swain brought between 800
and 900 negatives of actual finds and
excavations in progress. At presentj

uass of material to be unearthed
there, the inscription and architec-
ture and sculpture already found are
of paramount interest. Inscriptions,'
which date from the first century, are
in both Latin and Greek; the temple,
it is certain, was built by Greek work-
men, for construction directions upon

graduates on equal terms. They in-
vite them to tea and lunch, and are
invited back in their turn. The whole
College is a kind of happy family with

haps need explaining. I understand
that in American university life one of
the chief features is the secret society,
so called because of the distincctive
buttonhole badge worn by all mem-
hers. This method of mis-nomencla-
