LARGE SUM IS INVOLVED
Consolidation Of The Two LargestI
Nickel Companies Will Controlt
Most Of World's Supply
(By Associated Press)
NEW YORK, Oct. 23-The New
York American today says it has
learned the details of a merger by
which control of virtually the
world's entire resources of nickel,
Will. pass into British hands
through the consolidation of two
of the largest nickel-producing
companies in the world.
The merger would combine the
International Nickel Co. and the
Mond Nickel Co., whose properties
in the Sudbury district 'of.Ontario,
Canada, prodice 90 per cent of the
world's nickel output.'
Is American Concern
It would be effected through In-
ternational Nickel Co. of Canada,
Ltd., a subsidiary of International
Nickel Co. The latter is incorpo-
ratedunder the laws of New Jersey
and therefore ostensibly an Ameri-
can concern.
Financialdetails of the merger,
as reported by the American, pro-
vide that International of Canada
will amend its articles of associa-
tion so that its authorized capital
shall be as follows:--3,750,000 shares
of 7 per cent preferred cumulative
stock; 2,996,000 shares of cumula-
tive preference 6 per cent stock;
5,000,000 shares of no par common.:
These shares would be exchang-'
ed for outstanding stock of Inter-
national Nickel Co. and Mond
Nickel Co. as follows:
Exchange Provided
Each share of International)
Nickel Co. will be entitled to re-
ceive in exchange six shares of In-
ternational Nickel of Canada, each
share of Mond ordinary stock to
one share of no par International
Nickel of Canada. Each share ofj

More than half a million books
are on the complete list of the
University General library, accord-
ing to figures released by Dr. Frank
R. Robbins, assistant to the presi-
dent. The exact count of all books
registered under the library stamp
at the end of a recent survey was
681,025.
Some idea of the tremendous
business done by some of the cam-
pus libraries may be gained from
the figures which show the total
recorded use of publications dur-
ing the past year. The number,
exclusive of another list of books
used by faculty members with
stack privileges, runs up to 640,920.
Contrary to general belief the
summer session students make up
in diligence what they lack in
numbers to the extent that study

come into the possession of th
University through the generosit;
of individuals who sent entire li
braries to Ann Arbor. Some o
these gift books are of great value
and are housed in the vaults o
the main library. Eight so-called
incunabulas, are books published
during the fifteenth century and
are from the Henry C. Hoskier 11
brary. Nine books or medical his
tory of the same period were do
nated by Dr. Ernest Haas, Detroit
to further the building up of the
Walter Haas collection in honor o
his deceased son, for whom the
library was named. These book
are worth thousands of dollars each
ands with this last addition thi
total number of incunabulas pos
sessed by the University to date i
134.
