Recent articles appearing in news-
papers on the sale of a copy of Martin
Waldseemuller's "Introduction Cos-
mographiae" have recalled the fact
that two of the few remaining copies
of this epochal work are ins the pos-
session of the William L. Clement's
library. The volume exciting so much
comment was sold at auction in Paris
for 28,000 francs, but it is not so rare
or so eagerly sought after as the col-
lection in Ann Arbor, which not only
contains two conies of the work, the
1507 and 1509 editions, hut also the
accompanying map. The map is more
valuable than the book itself and until
last year was believed to be the first
printed map of America.
Waldseemuller's book, which was
intended as an introduction to an
edition of Ptolemy's geography has al-
ways been considered of enormous

Will Tell Research Results
In their lecture tonight, the Dicks
will present the results of their re-
search on scarlet fever, having been
engaged in the study of this disease
since 1916. They have isolated a cer-
tain strain of hemolytic streptococ-
cus and have experimentally produced
scarlet fever in the human individual.
After this discovery of the organism
producing scarlet fever, they perfect-
ed a skin test for susceptibility to
the disease, now know as the "Dick
Test" which pronises to assume the
same importance to scarlet fever as
does the Schick test in diphtheria.
Their most recent productions are
an antitoxin with which it is possi-
ble to combat the disease once it is
established, and the perfection of a
Imethod for producing artificial im-
munity in those who have not yet suf-
fered from the disease. These results
' have been confirmed by many and
their work is now recognized as one
of the epoch making achievements of
modern scientific medicine.
