How Hurricanes Wreck Property In San Juan

IU. S. Government
Finds Decameron
Not Immoral Book,
MINNEAPOLIS, Sept. 29-- (A) -
The United S t a t e s government,
which first had contended otherwise,
unbent in its surveillance of national1
morals to admit that "The Decam-
eron," repository of fourteenth cen-
tury Neopolitan philosophy, wit and
gaiety, is not obscene and immoral.
The admission, made by Oswald
A. Blanchard, assistant United Statess
district attorney for M i n n e s o t a,
eliminated the necessity for a jurya
trial, as had first been planned to
determine the book's moral qualifi-
cation.
Two sets of two volumes of the
literary work, together with a more
modern time, "Married Love," by
Marie Stopes, were included in a
shipment seized by federal customs
officials here last spring for viola-
tion of federal tariff regulation for-
bidding importation of "bbscene mat-
ter."
Dr. Mabel U 1 r i c h, Minneapolis
bookstore proprietor, to whom the
volumes were consigned, hired coun-
sel to prevent destruction of the
books as demanded by the govern-
ment. Her attorneys found citations
that "The Decameron" is a recog-
nized literary classic and has been
sold publicly in the United States
fo many years.

To Continue Schooling
LAWRENCE, Kan., S e p t. 29 -

Scarcely remembered now, Clyde
Tombaugh, the young man who dis-
covered Pluto, has enrolled in the
University of Kansas to continue his
training in astronomy. Beginning
the science of star-gazing as a hob-
by, he continued his studies in the
field after leaving high school. Fi-
nancial circumstances and his work
at Lowell Observatory kept him from
college. But his unexpected discov-
ery on Feb. 18, 1930, of the planet
Pluto and his achievements in th-
field of astronomy earned him the
Edwin Emery Slosson scholarship in
science and he is now pursuing his
studies in that field.

War Memoirs Published
By Michigan Alumnus
Announcement has been made of
the recent publication of a book of
war memoirs by the late William
M
Graves Sharp, '81L.
After graduating from the Univer-
sity Mr. Sharp practiced law in El-
yria, Ohio. His career was marked
with distinction. In 1892, he served
as a presidential elector and served
two terms in Congress as a repre-
sentative from Ohio. In 1914, Presi-
dent Wilson appointed him ambassa-
dor to France, which post he held
until the close of the World War.
On his return to this country, the
University conferred upon him an
honorary Doctor of Laws degree.

Scenes like the one pictured here prevailed again in San Juan, major city of Puerto Rico, following
a hurricane which took at least 30 lives and wrecked scores of buildings. Note how tropical trees were snap-
ped in two when this picture was taken after a similar storm in San Juan in 1928.

Clerk Calls Repairing of 40,000
University Locks 'An Easy Job'

Luncheons Sponsored
By Detroit Alumni Club
Alumni of the University will have
an opportunity to attend a series of
luncheons sponsored by the Univer-
sity Club in Detroit during the foot-
ball season of 1932.
The luncheons are popularly priced
and are presented with the intention
of arousing interest among the alum-
ni, according to T. Hawley Tapping,
general secretary of the Alumni As-
sociation. A number of years ago,
similar Monday noon luncheons were
sponsored by the University of Mich-
igan Club of Detroit. These were
discontinued in 1924, Tapping said.
When Oscar A. Ahlgren was
nominated for congress in Indiana
he was given a Magyar serenade
with the fiddlers striking up "Rak-
oczy," the revolutionary march of
1848.

Anyway, the Key Clerk guesses in the University Hospital alone-
here are about twice as many cylin- all equipped with that type of lock--
er locks-Corbins and Sargents- to illustrate the assertion.
n use by the University than in "No, I'm not really a locksmith;
Lie rest of the entire city of Ann I just know how to work with cylin-
rbor, and points to the fact that der locks," says the Key Clerk. "It
here are about 1,200 private rooms isn't much of a job."
