largest in the history of the new
Museums building, were announced
The Institute -of Fisheries Re-
search is especially large, twenty-
four people being associated on its
staff. This year also boasts of the
largest number of students receiv-

search work in the museum, with
seven obtaining entire support as
either fellows or scholars.
There are two changes in the

Attempts are being made to ob-
tain the pictures of the Michigan
presidents who are not yet repre-
sented. In addition, the house com-
mittee is working to get the pictures
of three prominent alumni; Prof.
Laurence M. Gould, '21; the late
Prof. Claude H. Van Tyne, '96; and
the late William W. Cook, '82L.
Professor Gould has, since his
graduation, continued his work in
the geology department of the Uni-
versity. In 1925, he received his de-
gree as Doctor of Science. Since that
time, he has become noted for his
work in geology, especially for his
work as second in command to Ad-
miral Richard E. Byrd on his epoch-
making flight over the South Pole.
Professor Van Tyne is best known
for his studies in American history,
especially in the history of the
American revolutionary period. He
has written several books, including
the first two volumes of a four-
volume series on "The Causes of the
War of Independence." His untime-
ly death last spring concluded his
work on this series.
Mr. Cook, who also died last
spring, was the donor of the Law-
yer's Club, the Law library, and the
Martha Cook dormitory for women,
in addition to several smaller gifts
in money and in various collections:

The Congress will begin Monday

representing 68 different coun-

Following these trips of inspec-

Diamond carriers come in infinite
variety, he said-pursers, members
of a ship's crew, travelers with a
side line, immigrants.
The smuggling business was said
in recent tariff hearings to account
for half the diamond imports into
the United States, which take 80 per
cent of the 'World's production.
To a New York waterfront 40 or
50 miles long, with 500 to 600 piers
at which there may be 200 foreign
ships, the diamond carriers come.
Obviously, Eble pointed out, appre-
hension must depend on tips. Some-
one aboard sees something to arouse
suspicion. It is told to the customs
agents, who pass the word along. A
reward of 25 per cent of the amount
recovered, not to exceed $50,000 in
any case, awaits the informer.

Women marvel atELECTROCHEF's
low cooking cost
There are three reasons for the ELECTROCHEF'S low cooking
cost: First, the present Detroit Edisonrelectric rates; second,
the ELECTROCHEF effIciency; and third, the high-speed cook-
ing utensils now included with every ELECTROCHEF.
In September 1928, the Detroit Edison rate applicable to
electric stoves and other major appliances was reduced from
4 cents to 2 cents per electrical unit. This reduction, com-
bined with ELECTROCHEF'S cooking efficiency and the set of
special high-speed cooking utensils now included without
extra charge with every ELECTROCHEF range, makes
ELECTROCHEF'S cooking cost remarkably low.
See ELECTROCHEF demonstrated at any Detroit Edison office.
Cash price $105-installed, ready to cook, including all
necessary wiring and the seven-piece set of high-speed
cooking utensils listed below. Down payment $10; balance
$6 per month.
The seven-piece set of specially designed, heavy-duty aluminum
ware, included without extra charge with every ELECTROCHEF
range, consists of the following utensils:

which says, "Eat, drink and be

that hapless morrow comes, the in-
