1'rohibition Administrator Declares
Ie Also Draws Salary As
Traffic Director
(By Associated Press)
WASHINGTON, April 20.-Stormy
scenes and some startling revelations
regarding dry law enforcement mark-
ed" the sessions today of the Senate
prohibition committee.
As the drys approached the conclu-
sion of the presentation of their case,
there was a frequent outcropping of
an under-surface bitterness with Sen-
ator Reed, Democrat, Missouri, the one
wet on the committee of five, standing
as the central figure in the contro-
Reed Is Outvoted
Outvoted continuously by his dry
colleagues, Senator Reed took to the
Senate floor his fight for postponement
of the hearings until after the vote
tomorrow on the Italian debt settle-
ment, but without avail.
Returning then to the committee
room, the Missourian again faced ob-
jections by those in charge of the
case for the drys to the consuming of
time with cross examination of their
witnesses and finally objections were
raised by the members of the commit-
tee to certain lines of inquiry.
Questions Baird
Senator Reed was cross questioning
Frederick C. Baird, prohibition ajmin-
istrator for thd Western Pennsylvania
district, who disclosed that while now
on the federal pay roll at $50 a
month, he still is drawing his regular
salary as traffic director of the Bes!
semer and Lake Erie railroad, a sub-
sidiary of the United States Steel
corporation. Mr. Baird said h'e had
been recommended for the federal po-
sition by Judge Elbert Gary, who had
been requested by government official
to make recommendations at the time
the prohibition force was reorganized.
Both Baird and Edwin A. Olson,
United States district attorney at Chi-
cago, testified to increased efficiency
in the enforcement of the Volstead
act within their respective districts,
but Mr. Olson brought an indictment
against municipal authorities of Chi-
cago and Cook county for what he
charged to be their failure to enforce
the Illinois dry statute.
Baird appeared In the nature of a
"surprise" witness at the request of
Senator Reed, Republican, Pennsyl-
vania, and was on the stand for two
hours. Before he was called the drys
had presented William F. McDowell,
one of the ranking bishps of the
Methodist Episcopal church and other
church leaders, who urged against any
weakening of the Volstead act and
supported instead the administration
measure to put "teeth" into the cele-
brated statute.

Using the discoveries of modern sci-
ence as a basis for a regenerative
philosophy, Dr. Alfred North White-
head, of Harvard university, will de-
liver a University lecture at 4:15
o'clock this afternoon in Room C, Law
building. Histaddress is entitled "The
Ether of Events."
Dr. Whitehead, a prominent English
mathematician, has recently become
concerned with the philosophical con-
sequences of modern scientific theory.I
His series of Lowell lectures delivered
recently at Harvard university have
been incorporated into a volume, "Sci-
ence and the Modern World."
For his work on "Principia Mathe--
matica", in which he collaborated with
Bertrand Russell, Dr. Whitehead was
awarded the Sylvester medal by the
Royal Society in November 1925. AllI
his printed works rank high in the
field of criticism of culture.
Before his residence at Harvard
started, Dr. Whitehead lectured at
Trinity College, Cambridge, and at the
University of London. He also stud-
ied at Trinity College. He was a con-
tributor on non-euclidean geometry to
the new edition of the Encyclopedia
Brittannica. Among his other books
are "The Rhythm of Education" and
"Concept of Nature."!

Syrians on the development of the
western nations, especially through
the Crusades and the Arab ivason o
Dr. Hitti, a native of Syria, was edu-
cated partly in this country, holding
a doctor's degree from Columbia uni-
versity. He has an unusually accurate
control of the English language for a
fforeigner, according to Prof. William
A. Frayer of the history department,
who is in, charge of the arrangements
for the lecture.
Dr. Hitti's work for the University
of Beirut takes him to various centers
where there are groups of Syrians,
or where there are people interested
in the Near East. Ilie is to speak in
Detroit this week-end, previous to his ;
appearance in Ann Arbor.

Set Of French
Books Bought
By University
Completing negotiations that have
been going on since last August, the
University has succeeded in purchas-
ing a complete set of the transactions
and proceedings of 102 French societies.
This set was purchased from Nijhoff
of the IHague.
The collection will be paid for
chiefly from the new Dunning fund,
which was donated to the University
by Silas Wright Duning, '60, who was
for many years editor of "Railway
There are about x,600 volumes in
the new purchase, which will be
bound and sent to Ann Arbor in in-
stallments. The transactions are
chiefly of historical, scientific, and ar-
chaeological societies and the material
is on the history, zoology, geology,
and antiquities of the various depart-
ments and cities in France.
The University library will be prac-
tically unrivalled in this field of study
when the complete collection is final-
ly installed, according to Mr. Bishop,
The documents are especially valua-
ble on account of their rareness, whichi
has been brought about by the devas-I
tation caused by the wars in France,
especially the Franco-Prussian and
World wars.

Dr. Henry Suzzallo, president of the
University of Washington, will speak
at an assembly of the School of Edu-
cation at 4 o'clock today in the audi-
torium of the University high school.
Dr. Suzzallo is one of the most out-f
standing educational leaders in the'
United States today, according to
Dean Allen S. Whitney of the School
of Education. The speaker's subjectI
has not been announced, although it
is expected that he will deal withr
modern educational problems.
Dr. Suzzallo graduated from Stan-
ford university in 1899, and later 'took
up graduate work at Columbia univer-
sity, from which school he received1
the A. M. degree in 1902, and the, Ph.!
D. degree in 1905. In 1918 he received)
the degree of LL.D. from the Univer-
sity of California.

Bishop Explains Requirements W hich
Will Be Made For Admission
To New Department
Resolutions favoring the organiza-
tion of a library methods - training
school as a department of the literary
college were adopted by the faculty
of this college yesterday, and specifi-
cations for the forming of the depart-
ment were announced by William W.
Bishop, University librarian.
The resolutions which were tenta-
tively approved by the literary col-
lege faculty and which are recom-
mended to the Regents for approval
are as follows:
1. That the literary college
faculty recommends to the Re-
gents that instruction in library
methods be included as a depart-
ment in that school.
2. 'hat admission to the work
be conditioned by three years of
collegiate work and that there be
an excess of honor points over
the number of credits re uired.
Students upon graduation will re-
ceive the degree of Bachelor of
Arts in Library Science, and that
those students successfully com-
pleting graduate work will receive
the degree of Master of, Arts in
Library Science.
3. ' That the details be arranged
by a joint committee which will
be composed of the Dean's advis-
ory committee and the University
Money Appropriated
The Regents have already approp-
riated $17,000 as an initial sum for
"the establishment for a library school
under the direction of th Upivefsity
The formation of such a department
by the University will mark a step
in the general movement of the li-
brary education toward the universi-
ties, rather than the public libraries,
Mr. Bishop said. Previous to 1923,
Illinois, Wisconsin, and Western Re-
serve were the only universities offer-
ing library courses, but since then,
California, Columbia, and Chicago uni-
versities, as well as several smaller
institutions, have joined the move-
ment. He stated that it is the proper
function of the university, not of the
public library, to offer such instruc-
The department to be formed here
will specialize in university and ref-
erence library work, Mr. Bishop ex-
plained, and will be the only school
devoting its chief attention to tat
field. Considerable difficulty has been
experienced in finding librarywo ers
trained in those sepcialties, judging
from the letters received by Mr. Bish-
op requesting information as to where
to find capable employes.
Two Courses Planned
The plans, as they now stand for the
organization of the ne school, divid
the work into two courses: the one-
year, undergraduate course and the
two-year graduate course. The en-
trance requirements for the first year
courses are that the applicant shall
have "completed three years of col-
legiate work with a certain number of
points in excess of hours," and that he
must have a reading knowledge of two
of-the three modern languages, French,
German, or Spanish.
The requirements for the two-year
graduate courses are that an A.B. de-

gree is presupposed, a reading knowl-
edge of French and German required,
as well as one year (24 to 30 hours)
of study in Library Methods, either to
have been taken here or in an ac-
credited library school.
The courses of instruction for th,
first year course are tentatively given
as follows: general introduction to Ii-
brary work, Cataloging, classification
of books, book selection and ordring
for libraries, high school library wok,
care and use of ephemeral material,
and reference work and bibliography.
Th courses to be given in the grad-
nate course are: early printed books,
national and regional bibliography, ad-
vanced cataloging, government docu-
nents, library administration, and ad-
vanced subject bibliography and ref-
erence work.
