University Library
Bookworm's Utopia
If a student managed to read
an average of two volumes a day,
he would require more than a
thousand years to bookworm his
way through the bound volumes of
the University libraries alone, with-
out even glancing at thousands of
unbound pamphlets, periodicals and
miscellaneous reading matter.:
This' is contained in the Presi-
dent's report, published yesterday.
The report lists the fact that
there are 799,573 bound volumes on
the shelves. Further statistics reveal
the fact that had the bookworm
started when Cicero was a power in
Roman politics, about 70 B.C., he
would just now be approaching the
last of his books.

methods of England and the con-
tinent in a talk here tonight by
Prof:~ John Barker Waite, of the
Michigan Law school, who address-
ed a group of University of Michi-
gan alumni associations at the Ho-
tel Statler.
"Law in Action" was the subject
of Professor Waite's address, which
dealt primarily with the advantages
of the independent judiciary as it
worked out in European nations. A
detailed comparison of both the
personnel and the methods of pro-
cedure used in the administration
of criminal justice was made be-
tween the United States and other

Additional Trials to Be Held
in Laboratory Theatre
Efforts to make "Robin Hood," the
inter-club light opera planned for
next March the most ambitious
production ever presented to a
campus audience, will be continued
this week with additional tryouts
set for 8 o'clock tonight in the Lab-
oratory Theatre.
Results from the first tryouts
held last week were very encourag-
ing, Valantine B. Windt said yes-
terday. The reason for the addi-
tional tryouts today, he explained,
is to give those who appeared last
time, and any additional aspirants,
a chance to prove their ability by
presenting prepared material before
the tryout committee.
Those trying for musical roles
are asked to have a 'song memor-
ized and to bring the music for it
to be played as an accompaniment,
or have their own accompanist.
Those interested in the straight
dramatic parts are to have 10 or 15
lines memorized from some play
that will demonstrate the particu-
lar talent of the individual who is
trying out.
"This opera offers great oppor-
tunitis both vocally and dramatic-
ally and should prove an excellent
experience for those who are select-
ed to take part," Windt stated.

"Although it probably will not be
voiced openly by either party, the
problem of enforcing or repealing
the existing prohibition laws will
be the most important issue," he

President Cites Need for Freshman Dormitories;
New Observatory Necessary, His Report States

By Karl Seiffert
Terming the need for dormitories
for freshmen "a very real one,"
President Alexander G. Ruthven,
in his report to the Regents for
the year 1930-31, which was pub-
lished yesterday, says:
"Not because suitable rooms are
not available, but because the first
year is one during which the stu-
dent should receive assistance in
adjusting himself and in organiz-
ing work, it is highly desirable that
these men be housed together."
- Among other needs of the Uni-
v'ersity are listed an endowment
fund for the salary of a supervisor
of religious activities, a new ob-
ovtnrv _ nd endowment funds,

lake has been acquired. Funds for
erecting and equipping two domes
should be made available as soon
as possible that the activities of
this important department may
cease to be curtailed."
The president's plan for the es-
tablishment of a director of relig-
ious activities is based on the fact
that state universities have not as
yet discovered a satisfactory meth-
od of encouraging religious educa-
tion or of providing training which
will produce religious leaders or in-
formed laymen. Not only are there
objections to formal instruction in
this field and to required courses,
but experience shows that little can
be accomplished by these methods."
