Fenelon Boesche, President
Association, Fosters Plan
for Lending Library.


Current Works Not to be Found
in General Library Will
be Circulated.
A large stock of books of current
interest, will be made available
during the next ten days at a new-
ly organized lending library to be
housed on the first floor of Lane
hall, according to the announce-
ment yesterday of Fenelon Boesche
'31, president of the Student
Christian association and sponsor
of the lending library idea.
Popular Books Included
Books too new, or perhaps of too
popular appeal to be found in the
University library, a n d costing
more than the average student*
purse could afford, are the books
that will find a place in the new
collection. It was pointed out by
Library officials, who are thor-
oughly in favor with the project,
that the university library rarely
purchases new current books ex-
cept upon the order from the head
of some University department, and
that a book which is arousing pop-
ular interest is rarely available at
the library sooner than a year af-
ter the date of its first publication.
A committee of two faculty mem-
bers and a student have been
named to select the books each
month, besides the original outlay
of 100 volumes. Prof. Howard Y.
McClusky, of the School of educa-
tion, Eric A. Walter instructor in
the English department, and Wil-
liam Gorman '31, books editor of
the "Daily" will comprise the com-
Live fiction, often books of an
experimental nature that the uni-
versity library might consider of
too doubtful permanance to risk
purchasing, popularly written books
on psychology, sociology, economics,
philosophy, and politics will be in-
cluded in the collection. Also dra-
ma and current poetry, which are
practically unavailable through any
other source, will be on hand.
Dollar Deposit Required
According to the statement of
Boesche, the method to be used in
distributing the books will be to
have each subscriber deposit one
dollar when he takes out his first
book. This initial deposit to be re-
funded whenever the subscriber so
desires. The fee for each book will
be five cents for the first day and
two cents for each subsequent day
to be paid on the return of the
The library will be located in the
first floor lobby of Lane hall and
will be open for the withdrawal of
books from ten until twelve in the
morning and from two until four in;
the afternoon. The distribution
will be in the handled by Mrs.
Edna Alber, the office secretary of
the Student Christian association.

Michigan to Celebrate
of Her Own Rustic


Today, is the eighty-fifth anni-
versary of the birth of Michigan's
own poet, Will Carleton. A special
Will Carleton exhibit at the Uni-
versity library, most of the mater-
ial for which was loaned by Hills-
dale college from which Carleton
graduated, graphically paints the
life of this extremely prolific man,
who wrote poems, prose, plays, and
even edited a magazine, as well as
being a public lecturer. This dis-
play, which was brought here
largely through the influence of
Byron A. Finney, reference librar-
ian emeritus, who was a boyhood
chum of the poet, will soon be de-
posited in a permanent Carleton
memorial room at Hillsdale college.
The exhibition includes Carleton
manuscripts, first editions, pictures,
and contemporary writings on the
man, in addition to many of his,
lecture notes and diaries, one of
which is scrupulously kept up in
beautiful short-hand. There is
even a pocket chess game which
Carleton carried with him con-
In these shelves may be seen the'
dramatic rise of the farm lad who
was born near Hudson in Lenawee
county, Oct. 21, 1845. His was a;
remarkably versatile life from the,
time when he and his pal, Finney,
in their boyhood days rigged up
rude stumps, from which they
would harangue each other in the
vital issues of the day, through the
time when his first work of any im-
portance, "Betsy and I Are Out,"
established his literary popularity,
until pneumonia carried him away
on Dec. 18, 1912. Writing through-
out his entire life, his best works,
several of which are on display, are
"Farm Ballads," "City Ballads," and
"In Ol1 School Days." The motion
picture of two years ago, "Over the
Hills," was taken from two poems
in "Farm Ballads."
County Board Delays
Action on Salary Cut
A proposal recommending that
the county board of supervisors
effect a 10 per cent sla4p in the
yearly salaries of all oflials and
employees, was made yesterday by
the salary committee. Action on the
proposal, however was postponed
until this afternoon.
The wage cut was based on three
reasons-lower cost of living, the
present economic depression, and
the increasing amount of delin-
quent taxes.
The resolution stated the super-
visors were in "such a position"
that economy should be effected.
L. O. Cushing, chairman of the
county board of auditors, said the
proposed cut would mean a sav-
ings of approxmately $9,000. The

Explorer to be Guest of Hobbs
During Visit to Campus; l
Refuses Reception.
Admiral Byrd will bring with him
9,000 feet of film, taken on his ex-t
pedition to the south pole, when he
comes to Ann Arbor Nov. 10 to de-
liver a lecture at Hill auditorium
under the auspices of the Oratori-
cal association. The nine reels of
pictures he will show have never
been released to the general public
before, except for that picturingx
the flight to the pole. .
Igloo, Admiral Byrd's fox terrier,
who was with the explorer on both
north pole and south pole expedi-
tions, will accompany him on his
Iour. While in Ann Arbor, the lec-
turer will be the guest of Prof. Wil-
liam H. Hobbs, head of the geo-
logy department.{
Because of the strenuousness of1
his trip, Byrd requested in a letter1
to Professor Hobbs that no plans
be made for a reception of any
kind. Such plans were already un-
der way, but were not completed
upon the receipt of this letter.
Allseason tickets for the series,I
which will feature five more lec-t
turers, have been mailed out, ac-_
cording to Henry Moser, manager
of the association, and over-the-
counter ticket sale has begun in

Scientists Prepare
for Eclipse of Sun
in Southern Pacific
(By Associated Press)
NIUAFOU ISLAND, South Pacific,
Oct. 20.-Scientists from far-away
United States and New Zealand
were hoping tonight for clear skies
during the 93-second total eclipse
of the sun here tomorrow.
At 9:09 a. m. local time (4:09 p.
m. Eastern Standard Time) the
moon, passing between the sun and
earth will cast a four-mile band of
darkness upon the South Pacific
ocean from near New Guinea
island to the tip of South America.
In this brief period the scientists,
with giant cameras, spectroscopes
and telescopes will endeavor to
learn more of the secret of the
sun, 93,000,000 miles distant.
Aided by an expedition of the
U. S. Naval observatory directed by
Commander C. N. J. Keppler,
astronomers have placedin posi-
tion 65 and 63-foot cameras and
huge spectroscopes to photograph
the corona and chromosphere sur-
rounding the obscured sun.

Department Makes 74 Arrests
Throughout Month of
Representatives of four Ann Ar-
bor taxicab companies were specta-
tors of a Common Council session
last night at which they narrowly
escaped losing the privilege of
maintaining the telephone exten-
sions through which they do the
greater part of their business. Op-
position to the practice of permit-
ting cab companies to place exten-
sion telephones on poles standing
on city property was led by the
traffic committee, the members of
which contested the legality of
this procedure.
Claim Phones Boost Service
According to cab proprietors, the
discontinuation of extension serv-
ice would force the cabs out of bus-
iness in Ann Arbor, since all of the
service rendered University stu-
dents by at least two of the com-
panies is handled by the branch
phones, of which there are approx-
imately 12 in operation at present.
After 45 minutes of discussion, dur-
ing which the cab operators were
asked to state their case, the coun-
cil voted to permit the maintenance
of the telephones over the objec-
tions of several members.
According to a report of the poor
committee, 27 Ann Arbor families
are being assisted by the city at
present, $316 having been spent
for provisions for destitute families
during the month of September.

Waterman, Assistants Unearth
Money of Former Purchasing
Power of Almost $10.
T h e Toledo-Michigan-Cleveland
archeological expedition in Mesopo-
tamia has unearthed a cache of 200
perfect silver tetradrachmae, Greek
coins approximately 2,000 y e a r s
old, it has been reported in a cable-
gram from the excavators to Direc-
tor Blakemore Godwin, of the To-
ledo Museum of art.
The coins, which had a purchas-
ing power comparable to that of $10
in American money today, are
among the most important of the
many interesting relics the expedi-
tion has brought to light, Director
Godwin said. Other coins, totaling
more than 700, most of which dat-
ed to the reign of Vologases, 140-190
A.D., also are among recent finds
reported by Prof. Leroy Waterman,
head of the expedition. The pieces
were found in hoards of several
hundred each, all on the first level
of the great Parthian palace that
has been completely uncovered.
Professor Waterman is being as-
sisted in the work of excavation by
a crew of nine experts and 250
laborers who are concentrating on
the task of pushing their depth
through the Greek, Babylonian, and
Sumerian strata believed to lie im-
mediately beneath the site of pres-
ent operations. Headquarters of the
expedition are in Tel Omar, Iraq,
not far from Bagdad.

exhumed and interesting photo-
graphs of the excavations are now

Dean of Radcliffe
Bans Molnar Play;-
Will be Given Here
Once again the gaunt foreigner
of suppression has been shaken in
Boston. This time, dispatches from
Cambridge say that Dean B. V.
Brown, of Radcliffe college has re-
fused to permit members of the

Idler club to cooperate with the
Harvard Dramatic club in present-
ing Ferenc Molnar's "Olympia,"
which she chooses to classify asj
"the worst play I have ever read."
In making public her stand on
the matter, Dean Brown neglected
to state whether her objection was
based on moral or literary grounds.
However, she suggested, "Read the
play yourself."
"Olympia," produced by Comedy
club, will open in the Lydia Men-
delssohn theatre here Friday night,
with performances on Saturday
and a third, Saturday, Nov. 1. "The
Guardsman," another of Molnar's
plays much in the same vein, pro-
duced here last summer by Play
Production's Michigan Repertory
players, was well received.
