Works May Be Seen In
A group of Mexican paintings by
the Detroit artist, Joseph Sparks,
were placed on exhibition Monday
in the large exhibition cases in the
main hall of the Architecture Build-
ing. The exhibition will last two
Mr. Sparks, who was born in De-
troit and lives there at present is well
known on the .campus. Last winter
he came:to Ann Arbor bi-weekly to
criticize and instruct a section of the
Faculty Women's Club which was
studying art. He has traveled exten-
sively and spent last summer in Mex-
ico where he painted the pictures
now on exhibit..
His intimate sojourn among the
native Mexicans has given him an
insight into their colorful life. Guil-
lermo Rivas, who has written an ar-
ticle in the September issue of Mex-
ican Life, >saYs that Joseph Sparks
depicts Mexican Life in a newpand
interesting manner. All of his paint-
ings are stories, critics say.
"For him travel comes near being
indispensable, writes Rivas. His plas-
tic sense is always inspired by vital,
vibrant movement. The movement
one senses in his work is centripetal.
it is clearly. marked by a force pro-
ceeding toward a definite center."
This circular movement is one of
the outstanding characteristics of his
works. He does not believe in straight
lines, and every part of a drawing
tends toward some center.

QUEBEC, Que., Jan. 6.--Even
the sophisticated college man ( at.
least of Quebec University) is not
safe from the wiles of the fair sex.
Recently 14 young women solicit-
ing magazine subscriptions under
the name of the "National Circu-
lating Company" canvassed the
fraternities of Quebec University.
That the sales resistance of the
males was remarkable lacking is
shown by the fact that the young
women sold 110 orders.
Here's how the girls worked
the old army game: three of them
would gain entrance to the houses
by asking for certain men by name
at the door. Once inside they be-
gan their sales talk on the man
answering the door or any other
brother lounging about. Using a
little feminine appeal, along with
their sales talks, they soon had the
boys' names on contracts and their
money for several magazines.
Whole houses are said to have

University Library Will
Continue To Distribute
Sale and distribution of University
publications has been taken over by
the University of Michigan Press and
the stock of publications which was
formerly stored in the basement of
the General Library has been trans-
ferred to the University Press build-
ing on Maynard street. The library
will continue to distribute publica-
tions to other libraries as it has in
the past, library officials announced.
A bibliography entitled "The
Child's Own Bookshelf," has just
been issued in pamphlet form by the
University Press. It is intended to
supplement the series of talks on
books for children given by Edith
Thomas over the radio through the
facilities of the University of Michi-
gan Broadcasting Service. The Chil-
dren's Fund of Michigan has co-op-
erated in making this publication
possible. Miss Thomas and H. S.
Dahlstrom, both of the Library Ex-
tension Department, selected the ma-
terial for this publication.

NEW YORK, Jan. 6.-(VP-Mrs.
Franklin D. Roosevelt, who, as wife
of the assistant secretary of the
Navy, did volunteer work in a can-
teen in Washington in the World
War, is going to bring back to New
York the wartime canteen.
Instead of being opened for sol-
diers, however, Mrs. Roosevelt's can-
teens are going to be established for
women without jobs.
Before leaving for Northampton,
Mass., to attend the funeral of Cal-
vin Coolidge, Mrs. Roosevelt enter-
tained at her home in East Sixty-
fifth St. a group of women to whom
she explained her idea, and prelim-
inary plans were laid. She promised
to raise herself enough money to
open two places and keep them run-
ning for two or three weeks.
At the luncheon were Amelia Ear-
hart, Fannie Hurst, Miss Jean Dixon,
actress; Miss Rose Schneiderman,

Trade Union League, and a number

Evidence in support of the oft-re-
peated assertion that the University
of Michigan has the most efficient
alumni file system in the world is
supplied by an inspection of the
numerous files that are maintained
in the Alumni Catalogue Office in
Alumni Memorial Hall. The depart-
ment is under the direction of Mrs.
The largest file in the office is the
master file which contains an indi-
vidual card for every person who has
ever attended the University and is
still living. On these cards are re-
corded the name; both business and
residence addresses; degree con-
ferred if any, and, if not, the num.
ber of years spent here.
Also included in this section are
registration cards of all students here
which are kept until the person
either graduates or leaves the Uni-
A Complete Biography
A second file contains clippings,
occupations, correspondence, and ref-
erences to all living alumni. The
majority of these envelopes contain
sufficient data to write a short
biographical sketcl of ahy person in-
dexed, it was said. Both this and the
file mentioned before are arranged
in alphabetical order. -
The collection of information re-
lating to deceased alumni is con-
tained in a third file, Envelopes in
these drawers hold cards and in-
formation from all the other files
which are placed in this grouping as
soon as word is received of the death
of an alumni or former student.
Another system is made up geo-
graphically by states and cities and
contains stencils used on a repro-
ducing machine to address corres-
pondence to alumni, and the group-
ing makes it possible to mail to cities
or states at one time. According to
Mrs. Hadley, it is possible to address
as many as 1,800 envelopes an hour
by using this machine.
The final file is arranged accord-
ing to the colleges and the years of
graduation of the persons whose
names are contained therein. It in-
cludes an unique tab system which
enables one skilled in its use to tell
at a glance whether the person in-
dexed is dead or alive, married or
single, man or woman, and whether
more than one degree was conferred
by the University to the person. This
file is. of special value if the office
wishes to mail correspondence to all.

The latest figures show that since
1845 the University has conferred
66,161 degrees on 58;222 persons. The
total number of non-graduates since
that time is 39,990, which gives a
total of 98,212 persons who have at-
tended the University during the
period since records have been kept..
Of this number 10,560 are known to
be deceased at present.

of Michigan over 32,000. Names, of

universities often send representa-
tives to study the file system here
that they may incorporate some of
its features in, their offices.

The invention and construction of
a "spectroheliokinematograph," an
instrument to be used in studying the
solar prominences at the new Lake
Angelus Observatory, was one of the
most important accomplishments of
a busy year in the Astronomical Ob-
ser-vatories of the University, the
1931-32 report of President Alex-
ander G. Ruthven shows.
In addition the department, which
has observatories in Ann Arbor, Lake
Angelus, and in Bloemfontein, South
Africa, sent - an expedition to Maine
to observe the total eclipse of the sun
in September, and is carrying on
continuous research work.
The observatory in Ann Arbor is
devoted ',to spectographic work, and
628 spectograms were taken during
the year. Discovery of double stars
occupies the Lamont-Hussey Observ-
atory in South Africa, and nearly
4,000 new pairs of stars have been
discovered. Moving pictures of solar
phenomena were taken at the Mc-
Math-Hulbert Observatory by means
on "Is Fear the Basis of Religion?"

The McMath-Hulbert Observatory
is a new acquisition of the Univer-
sity. It was built .by Robert R. Mc-
Math, Henry S. Hulbert and Francis
C. McMath, honorary curators of the
observatory and enthusiastic ama-
teur astronomers and photographers.
They developed a remarkably effi-
cient plant for making celestial
photographs and presented it to the
University. Lake Angelus, where the
observatory is located, is near Pon-
In addition to the astronomical
work, the University seismograph lo-
cated in the observatory building re-
corded -95 earthquakes from all over
the world. Ten of the reports were
sent to Washington for the informa-
tion of - government scientists in lo-
cating the disturbances.
The name of the local observatory
was changed from "Detroit Observa-
tory" to "The - Observatory of the
University of Michigan" during the
past year. Much confusion, especially
in foreign contries, had resulted from
the impression that the observatory
was located in the city of Detroit,
and when investigation disclosed
that the name had been bestowed
by custom only, the University took
official action to have it changed.
