"Every museum should have two
main objectives to work toward,
first the increase of knowledge and
second diffusion of it," was the
statemnent of Dr. Alexander G.
Ruthven, director of the University
Museum in an address given yes-
terday in the New Museum build-
ing before a meeting of the Ann!
Arbor branch of the American As-
sociation of University Wo'teti, on
"Museum: Past, Present, and Fu-
ture."
Contrary to the popular concep-
tion of a museum as a place of'
curious things, Dr. Ruthven con-
tends that the exhibits are only
one division and that a Museum
1hould include two departments,
ne to further education and the
other, research. The method
which should be used in these de-
artments includes first preserva-
i ton, study of objects, and finally
(demonstration.
i Museums, according to Dr. Ruth-
Oren, are extremely ancient insti-
iution. The name itself originated
with the Greeks, regarding build-
┬░ngs in Athens and later became
lefinitely attached to that great
iand widely-known institution the
lexandrine Institution. Many in-
ltitutions were ..originated later
nder different names, such as the
Ibabinet of Natural History, and
nany others. At the beginning of
the 19th century the name, mu-
3eum, became attached to the so-
, alled "dime-museum", a chamber
if horrors, which in the best sense
f the word cannot claim to be
4une at all, for in reality,.a museum
s not a building, or a group of
xhibitions, but it is an organiza-
'ion.-
In giving a brief summary of
the history of the present Univer-
jity museum, Dr. Ruthven stated
hat it was founded in 1837, pro-
iding for a cabinet of Natural
j~ltory, which term -has never been
etensively sed, exceptn nRegents'
eports. In 1882, it had grown so
hat the University granted a new
building, now the present building
of the Romance languages. In 1925,
the organization had again out-
rown its building, and with the
~elp and influence of Dean Lloyd,
hen acting president, the Legisla-
ture of 1925 proclaimed that the,
noney for the building of the new
nuseum would be available in
4927, in which year construction of
he present building was begun.
yr The unique feature of the new
uilding according to Dr. Ruthven,
4 thq plan of the building, divided
'nto two wings, the one on North
Jniversity street being devoted en-
irely to research, and the Wash-
enaw wing being given over ex-
clusively to exhibitions. According
Dr. Ruthven, plans for the ex-
ension of these wings have al-
eady been discussed, and as the
est of khe block on which the
nuseum stands is being held by
he University for this express
urpose, the organization need
Save no fear of outgrowing its
resent quarters.

W. A. A. CAMPAIGN
OPENS THIS WEEK
"When I was an undergraduate,
I was a member of W. A. A.," would
be a timely subject for an inter-
view with an alumna. "My; inspira-
tions had always included leader-
ship in a group of some sort, and
I found my ambitions gratified in
W. A. A. A current issue of The
Daily reports that, with a nation-
al conference assembling at Mich-
igan soon, the 1928 members of
W. A. A. will have even more op-
portunity for committee work and
leadership than I did.
"Moreover, I had to win over 100
points before I was eligible for
membership. Now, with only one
point and one dollar for dues, any-
one can become an active member
of an active organization."
Publisher Of Books
For Children Speaks
Children's Book Week will be
duly celebrated here when Miss
Louise H. Seaman, the pioneer pub-
lisher of children's books, comes to
speak on her subject. She will give
her talk on children's books at 8
o'clock Thursday evening, Nov. 15,
in the Ann Arbor High School au-
ditorium. There will be charge.
In 1918 MacMillian Company de-
cide to create a separate Children's
Department. At this time there
were few really good children's
books. If the text was good the
illustrations were bad and vice
versa. Mr. George P. Brett, presi-
dent of the publishing company,
believed that if a whole, depart-
ment were given over solely to the
making of books for young people
the results would justify the ef-
fort. The success .of the venture
would depend primarily on the
person he chose to head the de-
partment.
He selected Miss Louise H. Sea-
man, then only three years out of
Vassar College. She had been train-
ed in the publishing routine by
work in the educational, editorial,
trade manuscript reading and ad-
vertising departments. Miss Sea-
man has proved to be the right
person for the job. From the very
start her work was noted by other'
publishers, book sellers, and li-
brarians.
Since the time of her appoint-
ments ten years ago the sales have
been steadily increasing. A still1

On the third concert of the
Choral Union Series, Vladimir Hor-
owitz, Russian pianist, will appear
as soloist tomorrow evening in Hill
Auditorium. The Detroit Sym-
phony Orchestra under the direc-
tion of Victor Kolar is to accom-
pany him, and will likewise, in ac-
cordance with their policy, give a
concert for high school pupils in
the afternoon.
Mr. Horowitz, who, like the two
other artists who have appeared on
the Series this year, Rosa Ponselle
and Amelita Galli-Curci, started
his public career at an early age,E
is now but 24 years old. Four years
ago he started on a tour of Eu-
rope, and gathered immediate
fame in Germany, Holland, Italy,
France and Spain.
Born on October 1, 1904, in Kieft
Vladimir Horowitz was raised in
the environment, of a well-to-do,
artistically inclined Russian fam-
ily. At an early age he showed
remarkable pianistic gifts, and was
constantly encouraged by his par-
ents who recognized his talent.
For a number of years he stu-
died under Professor Blumenfeld
at the Conservatory ofKieff, and
later graduated with the highest
honors. His professional career
began by giving concerts in the
principal cities of Russia through
which he traveled for several
years.
One of his recent triumphs wasl
in the nature of an invitation from
Leopold Stokowski to make his de-
but in the United States as soloist
with the Philadelphia Orchestra,
His first American appearance was
made' in the fall of last year, and
his initial Ann Arbor appearance
will be tomorow evening.
more striking proof of her success
is the fact that so many other
publishing companies have creat-
ed children's departments and
placed women at the head of them.
Four New York houses and one
Boston house have already done
this. The' women at the head of
these departments all acknowledge,
the leadership of Miss Seaman.
One of them says, 'I don't think I
could have brought my department
through whole without her prece-
dent or else it would have taken
twice as long."
Miss, Seaman has set a high
strong pace to the tremendous gain
of books for young people. Herl
books show a delightful variation
and marked individuality. With
ten years of invaluable experience
and an unjaded joie de vivre Miss
Seaman stands out as one of the
successful young American women
of the time. She has a particuiar
interest for us because she is Mrs.
Clarence Cook Littles \cousin.
Montana University: Spanish stu-
dents at the university will lunchI

bulary.

PRESIDEINT OF -VASSAf
PRAISES MODERN GIRL
At a recent meeting at the Peo
ple's Forum in Montreal, Dr. Henr
Noble MacCracken, president o
Vassar College, spoke on the sub
ject f "Modern Girlhood: Has I
Leteriorated?" Dr. MacCracke
said, "Apart from cigarettes, pro
fanity, summer beaches, and th
like, when we look deeper int
ethics and religion, which are es
sentials, we see the young woma:
going to find out for herself, an
devising certain standards of hon
or and decency of her own to mee
changing custom."
"Mocking generalizations," D
MacCracken pointed out, "are ver
dangerous."
As to the mind of the moder:
girl, Dr. MacCracken stated that ii
twelve years of intelligence testin3
there has been no evidence of an
deterioration in whatever the test
signify. There is, in the youn
woman a mental willingness t
submit to necessary training. Tb
modern girl is not afraid to g
and find out things for herself.
