BRUNMM LAUDS IDEALS"
of CLEVELAND EDITOR
Eric C. lopwnood, Who bied Sunday,
Viewed As A Great Leader In
Pregressive Journalismi
HAS SPOKEN IN ANN ARBOR
In commenting on the death Sun-
day night of Eric C. Hopwood, editor
of the Cleveland Plain Dealer, who
spoke here two years ago at the ban-
quet of the University Press club,
Prof. John L. Brumm head of the
journalism department, made the fol-
lowing statement:
"Teachers in journalism looked up-
on Mr. Hop'wooj as one of the leaders
in progressive journalism. As pre'si-
dent of the American Society of News-
paper Editors he was concerned with
the'problems of education for journal-
ism and cooperated generously with
educational comniittees representing
the American association of schools
and departments of journalism. He
has been one of the fewmen to recog-
nize the desirability of .e raging
individuality in newspaper' writing,
and often said that the trouble with
the press today is its growing stand-
ardization.
"Mr. Hopwood's death means a great
loss not only to professional journal-
ism, in which he was an outstanding
leader, but also to students of journ-
alism, who .looked upon him as a
model and guide. He was guest speak-
er two years ago at the banquet of
the University Press club of Michigan,
at which time he gave expression to
the finest ideals of journalism and"
newspaper practice.

UNIVERSiTY HAS
OWN SYSTEM OF
FIGHTING FIRES
Ilow the UTniversity has organized
a fire department larger than those
boasted by many fai- sized cities was
discussed yesterday iby . W. Truett-
ner, maintenance inspector of the
buildings and grounds depar"ment.
"The University fire department
uses three methods by which to light
fire," said Mr. Truettner. "There are
fire extinguishers in every University
building, and seven buildings are
equipped with standpipes and hoses
connected with the University water
pumping system. The third part of
our fire-fighting equipment is a sys-
tem' of three hose carts and a series
of high pressure hydrants."
The personnel of the buildings and
grounds department, according to Mr.
Truettner, has been divided into five
fire teams. Each team is definitely or-
ganized under a captain and is train-
ed in the performance of a particular
phase of fire-fighting.
"A water pump capable of produc-
ing a pressure of 150 pounds per
square inch is located in the base-
ment of the West Engineering build-
ing," said Mr. Truettner. "In jase of
fire the hoses would be connected
to this pump, and because of the
high pressure six or eight men would
be required to handle a nozzle."

Regent Beal Has Unique Library Of Oddly Printed Volumes

-i

Regen-crt Junias E. Beal has accum-
ula ted an unusual library through
his mt erest in books which dates
back to his days as a student of the
University. The library was begun
through hi, work in printing where
he cam-e in contact with literature
from a printer's vievpoint.
His collection has in it many rare
books. One, 'the "fore-edged" vol-
ume, a small copy of Sir Walter
Scott's "Lady of the Lake," has its

gilt edges so arranged that when the
book is closed a small water-color
painting is formed. Another unique.
book is an "incanabula," which is a
book printed before 1500 A. D. This
volume, "The Deeds of Alexander the
Great," was printed in 1481 and bears
many original notes, as well as cur-
ious hands drawn to' point to some
important passages, probably made'
by some monk.
Froben, who is now being apprec-

iated as one of the fve greatest,
printers of the world, printed an odd
book by Plinius, the volume owned
by Regent Beal, still having the orig-
inal clasp. Every printer in the earl-
ier times had a distinctive mark, Fro-
Len's being a drawing of a dove and
a serpent, to depict innocence and
wisdom.
A first edition of Thockeray s
"Vanity Fair" contains an amusing
illustration by the author, which re-
presents a picture of Lord Stein, the

rerobate of the story. Thkzeray
received his inspiration from tle fea-
tures of the Marquis of hereford,
who upon dis;covery of the resem-
blance appealed to the king to have
the cut removed. The author was
obliged to comply. and the number
of volumes with the original pic-
ture is sm-all.
