Quarries of

Northern Michigan

Yield Large Deposits
of Fish, Coral.

Second Largest Fossil Deposits
of Reptiles and Amphibians
Found in Texas.
Traditional pictures of museum
workers as bent, old graybeards por-
ing endlessly over mummies in
musty rooms are quite out of keep-
ing with the active life of the mod-
ern scientist-teacher at the Uni-
versity museum here, from which
expeditions were sent this summer
to seek material in Michigan, Texas,
Ohio, England, Wales and South
In addition to the search for new
specimens, Dr. E. C. Case, director
of the museum of paleontology, has
visted museums in Vienna, Berlin,
Stockholm," and Upsala, arranging
for exchange of material in some
Michigan Yields Fossils.
The expedition to northern Mich-
igan in the St. Ignace, Rogers bity
and Alpena regions brought back
three-quarters of a ton of fossils,
including many fine specimens of
coral from the great coral beds or
reefs which were laid down in this'
region in Silurian and Devonian
time, many years ago. Interesting
deposits of fossil fishes were also
uncovered in a quarry near Rocka-
port, and donated to the University
by the superintendent of the Kelly
Island Lime and Transportation
company. 'This trip was in charge
of Prof. John M. Ehlers.
Find Large Deposits.
The second largest deposit of rep-
tiles and amphibians ever discover-
ed was the success of the party in-
vestigating the Triassic time beds7
of Texas. - Among other animals
found was a perfect skull of Phyto-
saur 36 inches long, the, reptile re-
sembling the modern crocodile. Ac-s
cording to W. H. Buettner, who
headed the party, Texas seems to;
have been the American stampingt
group for the reptiles and amphibi-
ans that ruled the world millions of
years ago. Better than average luck,
also saw the location of an unusu-
ally rich field that may be quarried
by future expeditions.
Theodore White, student assistant
to Buettner, also joined Norman
Hartweg, another student, on a trip
to collect specimens of the living
snakes and lizards of the region.
Search in Ohio Region.
Fossil plant material was obtained
in Ohio by Dr. Chester A. Arnold,
who later studied and collected sinm-
ilar specimens in England and,
South Africa furnishes a number
of specimens from the Karro re-
gion to a party in charge of H. F.
Donner, who is also an observer in3

Under the direction of Dr. Theo-
phile Raphael, who for the past
three years has been connected with
the Detroit recorder's court, as wellj
as being a lecturer in the Univer-
sity sociology department, the
Health Service is continuing a treat-
ment for minor mental- disturb-
ances, which was inaugurated some
time ago.
Last year this integral part of
the Health Service's facilities was
supervised by Dr. John M. Dorsey
who is also assisting with the work
this year. Dr. Raphael recently ex-
plained the function of his depart-
ment as being to advise in situa-
tions having other than a purely
physical basis, such as nervousness,
worry, and depression. He also men-
tioned that voluntary advice was
given in such matters as undue
self-consciousness and m a r k e d
sensitiveness, which, while not seri-
ous, have nevertheless, come to
represent real problems to the in-
"Obviously," continued Dr. Raph-
ael, "there is nothing extraordina-
rily anomalous in these conditions,
for they are really very common in
greater or lesser degrees among
most of us. Yet often they may
prove distressing and even handi-
capping, although frequently easily
corrected by the proper advice."
When asked whether men or
women were most prone to seek his
advice, Dr. Raphael answered that
there was no great difference in the
numbers, pointing out that about
equal numbers of both sex visited
"Also," he mentioned, "although
it is still too early to tell whether
we will constantly be kept busy and
to determine whether our advice
will prove successful in most cases,
this department, in the past, has
had its hands full and has had
very encouraging results."
Arrested in Jackson, where they
had fled after stealing a car be-
longing to Frank McClellan here,
two boys were returned to Ann
Arbor yesterday by police. The boys,
Glen Morrow and Wesley Spurgeon,
drove to Jackson in the car, a
Chevrolet two-door sedan.

"Freshmen, freshmen everywhere
but not a bar of candy bought."
Such is the complaint of the pre-
sentable young lady on duty at the
candy booth in U hall.
It seems that freshmen coming
out of Paducah or Oshkosh or wher-
ever freshmen come out of, are
more interested in the location of
the registrar's office than they are
in the personal consumption of
chocolate bars. In fact so great has

girls have turned into veritable Mr.
As to sophomores, they are more
interested in the personal activities
of the girls themselves than they
are in the very necessary daily cal-
ory quota. Juniors are too serious
Drains Overflow in Many Parts
of Citya
Inspection of the present sani-
tary sewer by City Engineer George
H. Sandenburgh yesterday shows
that the sewer is running to capa-
city,, although there has been no
rain during the past few days. In
some sections of the city, Sanden-
burgh found the sewer overflowing,
emphasizing, he said, the need of
a' modern drain.
A bond issue of $350,000 for con-
struction of a new drain has been
proposed, and the issue will be de-
cided by voters at the fall election.
During heavy rains, Sanden-
burgh pointed out, sewage water
backs into dwellings throughout
the city, causing an unhealthy
condition. Water drains, connect-
ed to the sanitary sewers, were re-
moved by the board of public works
several months ago. This Was done
in the hope that complaints from
back sewage during a heavy rain
might be lessened. However, board
officials stated that citizens call
regularly as soon as normal rains
Books on Display
Among ten featured books on
display this week at the Ann Ar-
bor public library is one from the
pen of one of England's greatest
present day women writers, "Shep-
ard in Sackcloth," by Sheila Kaye
Smith. Other notable books are
"Jungle Portraits," "Lobagola, an
African's Own Story," Mirthful
Haven," "Essays on Things," and
"Introduction to Art."

Debating Schedule
Will. e EXtend ;
Tryout to be Held
At a meeting early this week, the
speech department decided to ex-
tend its debating program for the
coming year. Although no arrange-
ments have as yet been completed
a definite announcement will soon
be forthcoming.
At the present time only two de-
bates are scheduled, with 'Indiana
and Ohio State, to be held on Dec.
13. We will debate Ohio at home
and Indiana away. The question
has not been decided yet.
In view of the plans for extend-
ing the debate program, the depart-
ment has agreed to hold another
tryout. This will be held Tuesday,
Oct. 14, at one o'clock in 3209 A.H.
This course is speech 81 and can be
taken either with or without credit.
The tryout will be a five-minute
argumentative speech on any topic.
These tryouts are open to both men
and women students.
Further details will be disclosed
as soon as The department an-
nounces thei' plans.
Bond of $20 has been posted with
Ann Arbor police for the release

According to Byrne, Fay, who was
arrested on a charge of drunken-,

Law Grad aqe Says New Style
of Procedure May Have
Great Value.
"Procedure for Discovery Before
Trial" is the subject of research
that has been conducted by George
Ragland, Jr., at the lbw school.
Ragland is a graduate of the law
school of this ,university and last
year obtained the degree of doc-
tor of juridical sdience here, choos-
ing as the sub ;;ect for his thesis
the history anc development of
the above topic.
His topic dea s with the finding
of facts before the case is actial-
ly brought to t rial, with the vew
of preventing t1;e surprise element
from entering into the trial.
Should this procedure be found
satisfactory an efficient it will
have inestimable. value in further-
ing the cause 'of justice, for it
would necessitate the trial of is-
sues on their merits alone, Rag-
land says.o
Ragland left yesterday to con-
tinue his research at the Univer-
sity of Wisconsin.. After several
weeks at that institution he will be
connected with the Legal Research
Institute as rcesearch associate,
studying the act ual working of dis-
coveryndstatutes in several states,

Convalescents Miss
When Old Set


Students confined in the health
service infirmary wish to inform
tpe outside world that they are
sadly in need of a new radio. {
The only set now available, an
antiquated outfit of pre-superhetro-
dyne days, even defies the efforts
of the University electrician who
ha§ been trying to restore it to a
properly functioning condition.
The absence of a continuous flow
of entertainment from over the air,
especially after acquiring the habit
of listening in, is painfully notice-
able. And the patients miss the pre-
occupation which the radio has af-
forded them and which has aided
in their convalescence, particularly
during the world series and football'
season. A good radio set given or
loaned to the health service infirm-
ary will be immensely appreciated
by the students confined therein.
