Ann Arbor Parents
to Study Children
An opportunity for Ann ArbQt
parents to study child psychology is
offered At the present time by the
University Elementary schcol in,
placing a collection of books on this
subject in their library. The use
of these books is limited to teach-
ers and the parents of members o
the elementar'y school.
Although there are not, as yet,
enough books in this library to al-
low circulation, officials plan to add,
moreoas soon as possible so tit
the books can be taken out of thie
library for reference work.
The library has also a collection
of 1,000 books of the "children's
classics," which include works by
men of the calibre of Stevenson,
Grimm, and Anderson.
At the present time Edith Thom-
as, head of the University library
service, is selecting 500 more books
to be added to this group. These
will be the books for children that
have been published this fall.
Wesley Maurer, of the journal-
ism department, will discuss the
Michigan Interscholastic Press
association which will convene
here this month during the Uni-
versity radio hourbtoday. Ray-
mond Mdrin will be the soloist
on the program.

to be held at 4:15 o'clock today in
Room 1041, East Physics building.
This will be a discussion of some
recent experiments on disintegra-
ion of the atomic nucleus that are
being made .at Halle, Germany, and
Cambridge, England. In one of the
experiments to be explained, the
experimenter allows alpha parti-
cles to fall upon aluminum foils
and detects groups of protons that
are emitted in the disintegration.
From these results a little may be
learned about the energy levels in-
side the atomic nucleus. The re-
sults of this experiment conform
with the latest theory of the atom
and agree with the theoretical pre-
dictions of the wave mechanics.

istorian Gives Talk
or Early Migrations
of Dutch Into State
Had the dissenters in Holland
been left undisturbed, the immigra-
tion of the Dutch to Michigan in
1846 might not have taken place,
Garret Kempers, of the history de-
partment, stated yesterday in his
radio address "Early Dutch Settle-
ments in Michigan."
Economic c6nditions were also
cited by Kempers as being instru-
mental in bringing about the de-
parture from Holland as well as the
widespread talk o' the prosperity
in the United States.
Upon arriving in this country, the
Dutch, Kempers pointed oui, went
to Detroit where they were assisted
by a group of men called the Pres-
byterian Coterie who had been in-
formed of their coming.
The definite location had not yet
been decided by Van Raalte, leader
of the group, upon their arrival in
Detroit, but their trunks were
marked "Wisconsin," Kempers said.
The advantages of Michigan were
uressed upon them by New Yorkers
and folk from Albany as well as
people of Detroit, and they decided
to remain in this state. The states-
men, according to Kempers, were
also eager to have them here.
Two places of settlement were
suggested in Michigan-one on the
western side, and the other in the
Saginaw river valleys. Upon the
recommendation of Van Raalte,
following an investigation, the
little band moved upon the locality
of the Black river early in 1847.
The numbers increased rapidly and
by August of the first year some
800 persons had come to the colony,
and by October the number had
increased to 1,700.
The recent census report says the
number of Hollanders by birth or
descent in Michigan is more than
100,000, Keniers stated.
