B rings 57 Original Stone Pieces
From- Rouen Buildings
for Exhibition.

Architectural Models
to University.
Placing on exhibition 57 frag-
ments from some of the finest ex-
amples of gothic buildings, the Col-
lege of Architecture now offers tc
the students of the University, what
is thought to be the only display of
this kind in any college in the
'these lime and sandstone pieces
which have been obtained throgh
the courtesy of the French govern-
ment, have been placed in the main
corridor of the architectural build-
ing. They are the original stones
from cathedrals in Normandyw. ich

of reconditioning.
All fragments come from41, buil--
ings situated in or neai te hi4qi-
cal city of Rouen, called the "mupem
um of rance," where Joan d '

Found by QnderdQnk.
The credit for obtainng .these
pieces goes chiefly to Fracis S.
Onderdonk, of the architectuaJl col-
lege, who, while traveling through
Rouen in the summer of 1929, saw
that workmen were employed in re-
placing the more weather beaten
stones for new ones that were mod-
eled from the old. Doctor Qxider-
donk attempted to buy some of
them but was informed, that if
bought they could not be xported,
from the country without special
permisson from the French govern-
Obtaining a letter from the Amer-
ican Embassy, he appealed to the
French Ministry of Fine Arts who
finally granted the 57 pieces to the
University as a gift.
"The value of the fragme4s,"
said Dr. Onderdonk, "lies in the fact
that they represent the architecture
of the six different buildings fromn
which they were taken. Each of
these are of a different period of
gothic construction."
Date from 13th Century.
The pieces range in date from the
eight fragments taken from the
Rouen cathedral, which was built in
the 13th century when Gothic ar-
chitecture was at its best, to the
38 pieces from the Saint Malcon
cathedral, built in the 15th century.
"The fact that the stones are
weather beaten and chipped only
increases their value," Doctor On-
derdonk continued, "because they
create an atmosphere that a re-
stored model could not give." The
patches of moss on some of the
stones and the primitive method of
joining them together ,by. using
bones and lead fasted in holes drill-
ed in the edges, help in creating
this atmosphere.
The stones were slightly damaged
in transportation but were repaired
by a local stone mason before being
set up.

Harvard Will Increase
Faculty Members' Pay
Members of the faculty of arts
and sciences at Harvard university
are to be given increases in salary,
ranging from $500 to $2,000 a year,
according to an article in the Bos-
ton Globe Wednesday morning. The
increases were voted by the corp-
oration last June, effective this
1930-31 academic year.
The move is the first general in-
crease in the salaries for the faculty
that Harvard has made since 1920,
when a change was made because
of the rise in the cost of living. It
was made possible by adjustments
worked out under the budget of

the university.
The following figures were estab-
lished by the vote: professors,
$8,000 minimum, $12,000 maximum,
associate professors, $6,000 mini-
mum, $7,000 maximum; assistant
professors, $4,000 minimum, $5,500
maximum; instructors, $3,000 mini-
university debating team here will
meet two foreign forensic groups
this year. One debate will be held
with t h e Cambridge university
team and another with debaters
representing German universities.

Neither the builders nor the war
dpartment has divulged the ability
of the craft, though through brief
appearances of it at Teterboro, N.J.,
Washington, and Dayton,.army ob-
servers have said it will prove revo-
hitionary in aerial warfare tactics
and strategy.
The ship is practically a flying

Banquet at League Will Honor
Bernard Heller, Noted
Hebrew Scholar.
Plans have been announced for a
student banquet of welcome for
Rabbi Bernard Heller, new director
of the Bnai Brith Hillel foundation,

Miller of the banquet committee has
announced that prominent civic
leaders of Detroit and faculty mem-
lers of the University will be pres-
Rabbi Heller, succeeding Rabbi
Adolph Fink, who left last week to
assume the leadership of one of the
most influential temples o the
West, in Spokane, Wash., comes
here from the Madison Avenue
Temple of Scranton, Pa., where he
occupied the pulpit for the past
decade. He r eceived his bachelor's
degree at the University of Pennsyl-
vania, and his master of arts de-
gree at Columbia. His rabbinical
regree was obtained at the Hebrew
Union college of Cincinnatti in
Rabbi Heller brings with him a
reputation as a scholar, orator and
an executive, having been the au-
thor of "A Harvest of Weeds," and
"Is Spinoism Compatible with Juda-
ism?' as well as the writer of a
paper on "Humanism" that will be
published soon. He is also a con-
tribator to the Nation and The
Menorah Journal, and served as a

Its twin motors are barely per-
ceptible bulges streamed into the
leading edge of the wing. No land-
ing gear is apparent, for in flight it
draws up into the engine faring
that becomes part of the wing.
The plane is designed for use far
behind enemy lines for day or night
observation, photographic missions,
ground strafing, and light bombing.
Its crew will comprise a pilot, a
photographer, and a radio man.
Added to its protection of speed,
which has been estimated by engi-
neers, pending army tests, to be
from 150 to 175 miles an hour, the
ship will have two machine guns
covering attacks from ahead, astern,
above, and below.

The craft is the product of plans
being developed for two years be-
tween the war department and en-
gineers of Anthony H. G. Fokker,
Dutch inventor and builder of Ger-
many's famous war-time planes.
Development was rushed more
than a year ago after a mimic air
corps war in Ohio, where military,
experts found a need for a faster
long-range reconnaissance plane.
The monoplane is 64 feet from
wing tip to wing tip and 47 feet
from nose to tail. The nose extends
15 feet ahead of the wing, with
cockpit in the extreme front for
the photographer and the pilot'sl
seat behind.

Additional Two Week's Session
Added to Five Planned
for Summer.
In respect to the number of boys
attending the utilization of new
ph'ysical equipment, and the results
in carrying out the program which
was planned, the 1930 University
Fresh Air camp was an unqualified
success according to Prof. F. H.
Menefee of the, engineering schoolI
chairman of the Fresh Air Camp
"The operating expense for the
season was about $9,000 which(
was $700 above the budget esti-
mate. This was occasioned by the
fact that the camp held an extra
two wee's session at the conclu-
sion of the five regilar sessions
which were originally planned,"
stated Professor Menefee.
Theodore R. Hornberger of the
English department, who served
during the past year as director of
the camnp, reports that letters have
been received recently from most
of the Detroit Social service organ-
izations who recommended needy
boys to the camp, commending
highly the value of the work done
by the Fresh Air camp.
Chief probation officer F. C.
Baxter of the Wayne county ju-
venile court says, ''I sincerely be-
lieve these boys return to their
homes greatly strengthened both
morally and physically." The De-
troit Visiting Nurse association'
writes, "Our four boys reported al
fine time-to them it was a great
and rare experience to be at camp."
In discussing the camp season
Hornberger stated that he particu-
larly appreciated the fine work ofr
the counselors, who with three ex-"
ceptions were Michigan men. These
leaders included Walter Gavey '31,
Marshal Levy of the sociology de-
partment, Richard Paine '32, Frank
Harrison '32, George Preuser Grad.,.
and Wallace Carr '33.
On July 13 Professor Menefee
presided at the unveiling of a stone
memorial near Patterson Lake
'dedicated to Virginia R. Ives com-
memorating the purchase of the
camp site ten years ago.

Hiillel Players W/IllII Start Second
Season on Camp us With
One-Act Programs.
Beginning their second year as an
active campus dramatic organiza-
tion, the Hillel Players plan to ini-
tiate their activities with produc-
tion of a series of one-act plays, ac-
cording to an announcement made
by Sylvan Simon, student president
of the group.
Announcement of try-outs for
par ts in this initial presentation
will be made soon, in an efIfort to
discover talent for other offerings
of the year. A heavy tentative pro-
gram has been planned, with its
direction being aided by Prof. J.
Raleigh Nelson of the English de-
partment in the engineering college.
An attempt to produce a very
rare manuscript of "The 6olem," a
dramatic legend, will be undertaken
if a sufficient number of caipabl~e
actors and technicians are available
during the early productions. The
manuscript to be used for this play
is one written in Russian construe-
tivist -style as directed by Boris Gla-
golin of the Pittsburgh Playhouse.
Membership into the Hillel Play-
ers, an outgrowth of the former
Hillel foundation dramatics com-
mittee, is secured by a vote of the
memb'ership; before being chosen
a student must have participated in
some capacity in at least one Hllel
Players production.
