The largest collection of old ac-(
countant books in Michigan, and, ex-(
cluding Columbia University's col-1
lection. the oldest in the United
States, is possessed by Mr. F. E. Ross
of Paton and Ross, certified public I]
accountants, Ann Arbor.
The collection dates back to Eng- j
land in 1649, when the Earl of Dum-)
forming and the Earl of Rothas hadl
their expenditures taxulated-in ank
artistically and utterly unintelligible
hand. This, while the oldest, is
not Mr. Ross' only record written in
the seventtenth century. There is alsol
Stephen Montague's "Debtor and
Creditor Made Easier," published in
1675, "Advise to Women and Maidens j
of London" (it really is an account- i
ant book), published in 1678, and a
hand script record written in 1682.
Advises Women
The "Advise to Women and Maid-
ens," written, the title page says, "by
one of their sex," shows "that instead
of their usual Pastime; and education
in needle work, lace, and paint-mak-
ing, it were far more Necessary and
Profitable to apply themselves to the
right understanding and Practice of
the method of keeping books of ac-
count; whereby, either single or mar-I
ried, they may know their Estates,
carry on their Trade, and avoid the
Danger of a helpless and forlorn Con-
dition, incident to Widows."
A typical London daughter is given
so much a month as an allowance
trom ner father, and the author tab-
ulates the daughter's expenses. These
expenses are considerable. For onI
one day the daughter buys, "fish, a
twelfth-tide cake, bread, soap and
bluing, fagots, needles, trolly lace,
bacon, eggs, and (the Womens Chris-
tian Temperance Union will please
take notice).
Most prized of all the books in the.
collection is that written in 1632. It

concerns "money received by John
Gordonne upon the account of the
Earl of Aberdeen, Lord High Chan-t
cellor of Scotland, from 10th of May
to 20th da yof October, in the year
1862."
Perhaps the boos most applicablez
to modern times is "The South Sea
Bubble," published in 1825, "as al
beacon to the unwary against modern
schemes equally visionary and ne-
farious."l
Applicable Today
One phrase from this book might
have been written but yesterday in
description of the 1920's. Substitute
"all Street" for "South Sea project"
and "republic" for "'kingdom" in the
following quotation and see what re-
sults:
"The wand of the enchanter seem-
ed but to touch any substance, and
it was instantly converted into gold;
and the South Sea project continued
to be applauded to the very skies by
the unprincipled and the unthinking,
until its fatal catastrophe plunged
thousands of both into one common
abyss of ruin. It was patronized by
the first characters of the kingdom,
by persons of both sexes, in the high-
est walks of society."
Apt Verse
Not all of "The South Sea Bubble"
is quite so serious. One poem, which
also might be applicable to the days
of 1927, '28 and '29, treats the sub-
ject with a happy lack of seriousness.
Five hundred millions, notes and
bonds,
Our stocks are worth in value.
But neither lie in goods or lands.
Or money, let me tell you.
Yet though our foreign trade is
lost,
Of mighty wealth we vapour,
When all the riches that we
boast
Consist in scraps of paper.

Asserting that no kind of society
can long exist with a great part of its
members constantly facing job in-
security and kept at a mere "tread-
mill existence," Miss Alice M. Le-
Blanc, North Attleborough, Mass., in
her thesis for the degree of bachelor
of arts at the University of Wiscon-
sin, maintains that from a social
point of view compulsory unemploy-
ment insurance legislation is "'ter-
ribly necessary" in America.
Pointing out that there is no im-
portant industrial country in the
-world without a system of compulsory
unemployment insurance, and that
the United States has the advantage
of benefitting by the varied experi-
ences of a number of nations, Miss
LeBlanc expresses the hope that this
prolonged depression will ultimately
produce in America a sound system
for dealing with unemployment in
good times as well as bad.
Entitled "Compulsory Unemploy-
ment Insurance for America," the
thesis reviews the unemployment in-
surance act of Great Britain, and
various methods of dealing with un-
employment in America. High praise
is accorded Wisconsin for being the
first state in the Union to enact a
compulsory unemployment insurance
measure for the protection of its
workers

A Budget Suggestion
We are glad to present the house managers of
fraternity and sorority houses this plan for

lowering their monthly budget.

The DAILY

a(Ivises that a weekly menu be made for all the
meals during that week. Then call up the
various merchants found on this page, and allow
then to supply you at a considerably lower cost.
By doing this, in a month or two you will be able
to see the remarkable reduction it has made in
your budget.
