By A. ELLIS BALL
In carrying on a study of rural
communities recently, Prof. Roy H,
Holmes of the sociology department
came across an aged school record
from Livingston county. The book
is the property of Howard H. Jones,
of Fenton, Mich., and was kept for
over 50 years by various members of
succeeding school boards.
The first entry in the book was
April 17, 1888. At that time, accord-
ing to Professor Holmes, school was
probably held in some private home.
The first mention of a district school
building is in 1842, when the school
year was nine months long.
"It is generally thought that the
length of most district school terms
was short at the beginning and then
gradually lengthened," P r of e s s o r
Holmes said. "However, according to
the school record, the case is just
Short Sessions Adopted
Nine month sessions were held un-
til 1848whn they were shortened to
eight months which were divided
into winter rand summer terms. The
winter term lasted four months and
the summer term began the latter
part of May and ran until Septem-
ber, the record shows. The summer
session formed a regular part of the
school year, and the board provided
that a- man should teach in the win-
ter and a woman in the summer.
In 1860 the school year was again
shortened to six months - three
months in the winter and three in
the summer. A few years later the
length of the term was left up to the
discretion of the school board. From
1888 until the date of the last entry,
Sept. 4; 1893, the school year re-
mained eight months long. In 1888,
however, it was moved by the board
to hold school nine months a year
and the motion was voted down.
Perhaps one of the most striking
and interesting items found in the.
school record, according to Professor
Holmes, is the mention of wood for
the school house stove. At each
meeting of the board it was voted,
how much wood would be necessary.
At the beginning it was ordered that
"inhabitants sending to school half
a cord per scholar," to use the origi-
nal illiterate words.
Beard Tekes Precautions
To assure the school of fuel, the
board further resolved "that there be
no schollar be admitted to said school
unless they advance their quota of
wood." In 1844 it was voted to hold
the parents responsible for the break-
ing of glass in the school house, but
apparently that rule was not en-
forced. A new pane could be bought
for three cents.
The board was more particular in
1846, and decided that if the scholar
had not furnished his half cord of
wood by the 'first .of' January he
would be liable for the money, 25
cents. A few years later the teacher
had to measure each cord. In 18541
one man brought enough wood to
last the winter and it was paid for
out of the county taxes. However,
the record stated that it had to be
"good body wood, hard timber, and
Needed A Dictionary
A motion to obtain a dictionary for
the school was made in 1847, but was
defeated. Judging from the spelling
in the record, the dictionary was
never purchased. One passage reads
"Moved and supported that we pro-
seed to an informal ballot for Mod-
erator the hull No of voats cast was
9." Another entry dated 1888:
"Meaton called to order-Direettor
report read and Exseptted."
Lecturing on "Domestic Architec-
ture in Imperial Rome," Dr. Alex
Boethius, director of the Swedish
School in Rome, yesterday traced the
development of this type of building
as revealed through recent excava-
tions. The lecture was illustrated by
Contrast between the houses of the
poorer classes and the palaces of the-
rich was brought out by Dr. Boeth-
ius. Although great attention was
paid to ornamenting the dwellings of
the rich, the poor people in Roman
times were allowed to live in the
squalid conditions typical of slums
of all ages.
Dr. Boethius, who is regarded as
one of the leading archeologists of
today, has made outstanding con-
tributions to new data which is being
gathered on Roman architecture,
and has written several books on the
subject. This year he is the Charles
E. Norton lecturer of the Archeologi-
cal Institute of America.

Dr. F. W. Sullivan, Jr., who re-

tions of Organic Chemistry to the
Petroleum Industry." The lecture
will be given at 4:15 p. m. in Room

Dr. Sullivan resigned his position
here to join the staff of the Standard
Oil Company at Whiting, Ind., and
is now director of research in their
laboratories. In his talk he will dis-
cuss the relation between constitu-

ricating oils, and also the work; his.
firm has done in regard to anti-oxi-
dents in gasolines.
