At 3 p. m..this afternoon Gov

His act placed Michigan in 1

wall behind which laws permitt.

Describes Library Work
In Dr. Ada'ns' lecture, "Some
Treasures of the William Clements
Library," he gave a brief resume of
the types of materials collected,
namely: maps, manuscripts, books,1
and, more recently, newspapers. ;
Dr. Adams said that the Williaml
C. Clements library possesses many1
very rare, old books, among which is
a copy of "Americanos." printed in
1544 in Mexico City, which was the
first book printed in America. At the'
present time, there are only 5 known+
copies in existence, he said.
Prof. Thomas H. Reed last night
at the League deplored the fact'
that more attention was spent by
teacher-training institutions in me-
thodology than in adequate educa-
tional training of teachers.
He blamed the educational system

Foundling Tricycle
Left With Lost And
Found Department
The University lost and found de-
partment has never had a tricycle
turned in. At least not until yester-
day. Now a nice shiny new green ve-
locipede adorns the counter in Sec-
retary Smith's office, providirj a
touch of variety among the many
textbooks and fountain pens.
It all happened this way, Dr. C. W.}
Edmunds, of the Medical School, had
his car parked behind the pharma-
cology building. His daughter, Ann
Edmunds, "33, noted campus actress,
started to drive home at noon, and
was astounced to findf a tricycle
parked in the back seat of the car.
Cross examination of B & G attend-
ants, who admitted having seen bi-
cycles and roller skates galore, failed
to reveal any trace of a young gentle-
man seen riding a three-wheeler.
So if some little boy wants his
tricycle back, it's over in Room 3,
University Hall, much to the dismay
of the office force.
