Head of Latin Department Sails
From Italy to Egypt to Join
Peterson Group.
Former Department Head Will
Come Here for Summer;
Noted as Author.
Receiving the first word in weeks
from two of the department of La-
tin professors, Prof. H. A. Sanders
and Prof. John G. Winter, who
are now abroad conducting lectur-
es apd research supervision for the
School of Classical studies in the
American Academy at Rome, Prof.
J. E. Dunlap yesterday announced
the return of Professor Sanders for
the summer school session, and the
sailing of Professor Winter from
Italy to Join the E. E. Peterson
archeological expedition in Egypt.
Professor Sanders, according to
information received by Professora
Dunlap in a personal letter, is re-
turning to the campus from Rome,
and will conduct courses in the de-
partment of Latin during the com-
ing summer session. Since he is at
present director of the School of
Classical Studies in the Academy,
his duties there will necessitate a
return to Rome immediately after
the close of summer school.
Before granted leave of absence
by the University so that he could
assume his foreign post, Profesor
Sanders was head of the Latin de-
partment. He is known interna-
tionally for his translation work
on ,the Freer manuscripts of the
gospel, and is a well-known con-
tributor to philological journals,
according to Professor Dunlap.
Among Professor Sanders' mot re-
cent publications are "Minor Pro-
phets in the Freer Collection," and
"The Berlin fragment of Genesis,"
both published in the Michigan
humanistic series.
Now on leave of absence from the
Latin department to deliver a ser-
ies of lectures before the American
Academy at R me, Professor Win-
ter, head of e Latin department,
plans to sail the early part of this
month for Egypt, where he will vis-
it the camp of the University party
of excavators in the Fiume district
at Karanis'. his trip, as part of
his official work, is subsidized by
his fellowship from the Thomas
Spencer Jerome Foundation. While
at the camp, Professor Winter will
take no active part in supervising
the diggings, but will only obtain
data for use at the academy. On
obtaining the data, his information
to Professor Dunlap indicates that
he will return to Rome in the early
part of next year to complete the
scheduled series of lectures.

Stands as Third Largest Steel
Corporation in Country;

Seen as Forerunner.
(By Associated Press)
CLEVELAND, 0., Dec. 18.-The
third largest steel corporation in
the United States was in -existence
in this midwest center of coal and
iron ore distribution today +through
the genius of Cyrus S. Eaton of
Cleveland,-*ho led the way to .ap-
proval of a $350DU0;00 merger by
I directors of four companies.
The merger, announced here
Tuesday night, creates :a vast sys-
tem of operations centered in
northern Ohio, with great lakes
fleets bringing down iron ore from
the fields of Minnesota, Wisconsin
and Michigan, and coal pouring in
from Pennsylvania, West Virginia,
Ohio and Alabana.
As important as this merger is,
however, financial leaders see it
as only the forerunner to further
combinations with the Youngs-
town Sheet and Tube of Youngs-
town and the Inland Steel of Chi-
cago, forming a corporation which
would rank in production above
Bethlehem Steel and second only
to the United States Steel corpora-
The new organization, to 'be
known as the Republic Steel cor-
poration, will have combined sales
of $250,000,000 and a producing
capacity of 4,900,000 steel ingot tons
