Financial backing for the work
hs been made possible by the 10-
million-dollar Children's Fund of
Michigan which was established
two years ago by Senator Couzens.
Approximately $22,000 a year was
granted the University in 1929 for
carrying on the work. The grant
was made "to promote the health,
welfare, happiness, and develop-
ment of the children of the state
of Michigan, primarily, and else-
where in the world."
No Time Specified.
When the grant for the dental
caries research work was made no
definite time was specified as to
how long it would be available. It
was guaranteed, however, for from
at least three to five years. The
work is a continuation of the in-
vestigations which Dr. Bunting and
his department have been dohg
for. the last 10 years.
Senator Couzen's fund has made
is possible for the dental school to
bring in trained workers in bacter-
iology, bio-chemistry, and nutri-
tion. Immuniological experiments
aimed at the control of organisms
associated with dental caries are
also being conducted with money
acquired from the fund.
Children's Diet Checked.
Special nutritional experiments
have been followed during the last
year in four orphanages. The chil-
dren's diets were regulated and, as
a result, dental caries were reduced
and their growth checked.
Administration of the funds is in
hands of a special committee com-
posed of President Alexander G.
Ruthven, Dean Marcus L. Ward, of
the dental school, and Dr. Bunting.
They are assisted by an advisory
committee consisting of Dr. Howard
B. Lewis, of the physiological chem-
istry department, Dr. Philip Hadley
and Dr. Louis H. Newburgh, pro-
fessor of clinical investigations in
internal medicine.
The entire Children's Fund must
be expended during the 25 years
from the date of its founding, ac-
cording to provisions of the trust

Finds Sent Here Over 80 Years
Ago Are Basis of Museum
( Collection.
Back in the dark ages of the
University, more than 80 years ago,
a man named Asa Grey sailed to
Europe under a commission to ac-
quire books for the University li-
brary. But he sent back not only
reading material-he included in
his discoveries a group of curioti-
ties, as they were recently dubbed
by a member of the museum fac-
The finds were the foundation
for the collection of mollusks now,
housed in the exhibition quartersl
of the University museum of zo- I
Today the division of mollusks
number more than 50,000 speci-
mens in its catalogue. During the
80 years since Grey first settled his
curiosities in Ann Arbor, the speci-
mens of slugs, snails, mussels,j
clams, limpets and other calcerous1
shelled creatures have accumulat-
ed to almost infinite numbers.
A profitable expedition was that,
of Prof. Richard E. Call, who spent
several summers in Georgia and
Alabama during the early eighties
of the last century. "His opportuni-
ties were unusual," states the Ark,
museum publication, "for much of
the original forest was still stand-
ing, and the streams bore hardly a
mark of pollution from the cotton
field loam."

HAVANA, Feb. 25.-Two attempts
upon the life of President Machado
within two days have failed. A
soldier stationed on top of the
presidential residence has been ar-
rested in one instance, while police
have taken into custody a youth
charged with the second attempt.
The first attempt was with a
bomb which was lowered through
a ventilating vent, presumably into
the president's bathroom, where a
fuse was to set it off at 4:30 a. m.
Monday when the president arose
and went for his bath.
It failed because the vent was
arranged so that the bomb stopped
at the bathroom of the floor above,
in the quarters of the president's
son-in-law, Emilio Obregon, It ex-
ploded, doing considerable damage
but injuring no one.
The soldier is said to have con-
fessed. Police said a bomb had
been found but said nothing about'
its having exploded.
The second attempt occurred
during the presidential address at
inauguration of the new $18,000,000
capitol Tuesday. The president was
m a k i n g a plea for nation-wide
peace when a youth was seen to
pull a revolver from his pocket.
The action precipitated a near
riot, but police rushed the youth.

fire. The marine band played the
