More complete examination of the
bones found Tuesday buried under
an Ypsilanti street has failed to give
any clue to their age, but nails found
with them indicate that they may
have been lying there more than a
century, according to Dr. W. B. Hins-
dale of the Museum of Anthropology,
to whom the bones were brought for
Pieces of finished wood and four
nails discovered with the bones made
finders suppose that the bodies had
been buried in a coffin or box and
aroused various suspicions.
Unfortunately, Dr. Hinsdale said,
no expert was on the scene at the
time of the discovery to tell whether
the ground had ever been removed,
so it is not known whether the bodies
were originally buried there or moved
there later. A
City workmen digging a trench for
water pipes unearthed the bones
about four feet below the surface of
the street. They were directly over a
water main laid 40 years ago, but it
was pointed out that the main was
laid through a tunnel, and so the
remains might have been missed.
The bones were so badly broken up
New Modes Of
Exhibited Here'

by workmen digging the recent
trench that very little can be told
from them, Dr. Hinsdale said.
Enough skull pieces are present, he
stated, to show that at least four
persons were in the group, two of
them men, the third a woman, and
the fourth a young person. This -was
determined from the sizes and thick-
nesses of the bones, in spite of the
fact that there was not a single large
piece left intact.
The nails used are of a type known
as "cut", in use since about 1820,
and serve to establish the age of the
find more closely than do either the
bones or the wood, Dr. Hinsdale said.
This use of machine-made nails
makes it unlikely that the bones are
those of Indians, in his opinion.
The possibility that the Ypsilanti
workmen might have dug into an old,
forgotten grave-yard was suggested.
"It seems as though someone in town
should be able to remember the
existence of such a cemetery, or even
the occurrence of such a burial," Dr.
Hinsdale commented.
The Museum has been advised that
the pieces of wood found are prob-
ably tulipwood, or as it is more com-
monly known, whitewood.

Home of Brigham
Young Is Reopened
SALT LAKE CITY, Jan. 19.-(P)-
The historic Lion House, for a dozen
years home of the large family of
Brigham Young, again echoes with
the conversation .and laughter of
girls and women.
Refurnished with articles of its
early days, it has been reopened by
the Young Ladies' Mutual Improve-
ment association as a social center
for young women.
The association sponsoring the
center was organized in the Lion
House by Brigham Young among
his own daughters, of whom he had
29, in 1869. It later was enlarged
to include in its membership the
young women on the entire Latter
Day Saints Church.
Completed in 1869, the building,
which takes its name from a carved
lion over the frornt doorway, was
the home of most of the Mormon
leader's 19 wives and 56 children.
Belgium has a law which will bring
under strict control all machines
and electrical devices which cause
interference with radio reception.

Heitman Wins
Medal Offered
For Best Talk
Gives Story Of Cannibal
Islands; Englis~h Slang,
TechnOcracy Discussed
Holding his audience spellbound

students and the judgment of the
faculty judges as the winner of the
medal offered to the student in
Speech 31 who is considered the best
speaker in a public contest.
Each of the 11 classes entered one
speaker, who was chosen by the
members of the class by vote. The
subjects of the various speeches
ranged from Technocracy and Cul-
bertson to English Slang and a Short

medal which was presented by John
W. Lederle, '33, on behalf of the Ora-
torical Association, said, "I never
would have been able to give the
speech if it had not been for the
support given me by my classmates
when I stepped out on the flatform."
Friends of Heitmann applauded him
both before and after the speech.
The subject of Heitman's speech
was his visit to Papua Island, a ren-
dezvous of cannibals. Although the
party did not see any cannibals eat-
ing humans, they did carry on some
enlightening conversations with the
cannibals concerning their diet, all of
which provoked an uproar in the au-

Water Hardness
Costs University
$49,000 A Year
Hard well-water costs the Univer-
sity approximately $49,500 a year by
its constant corrosion and accumula-
tion of scale in water pipe lines and
sewers, Prof. L. M. Gram, head of
the department of civil engineering
and director. of plant extension an-
nounced yesterday. The figure was
based upon a report of maintenance
costs by E. C. Pardon, superintend-
ent of buildings and grounds.
Professor Gram admitted that the
cost of using hard well-water is ex-
cessive both to the citizens of Ann
Arbor and to the -University. He
doubted, however, if the people of
the city would vote to "build a fil-
tration plant that would permit the
usage of water from the Huron
River. As for the University's policy
he stated that f& "tlid present it
would go on replacing damaged pipes
as they were discovered.
The water being taken from the!
Steers farm wells is too hard to sof-
ten economically but water from
the Barton and Montgomery wells
is softer, Professor Gram said.
He objected to the proposed con-
struction of a filtration plant on the
grounds that the cost would be more
than the city could afford at this
time. Also he declared that as yet
the water board, which favors the
proposed plant, has failed to show
conclusively that the cost of soften-
ing well water would be prohibitive.
In addition to the financial ob-
stacle to the plant, Professor Gram
said. that the majority of the peo-
ple of Ann Arbor would oppose the
use of river water because of psy-
chological reasons. He mentioned
Pontiac's filtration plant which was.
constructed a few years ago to purify
water from the Clinton River for
drinking purposes. Shortly after the
use of river water began the citizens
of Pontiac objected so strenuously to
the taste and smell of the water that
its use was discontinued.

Houses Planned Specially
For Hillsides Considered
New In Building Plans
The study of hillside housing, now
shown in an exhibit in the large ex-
hibition room of the Architecture
Building, will remain until 'Thursday
Jan. 26, Prof. Emil Lorch of the ar-
chitecture college announced yester-
day. The study consists of models
and sketches prepared under the di-
rection of Henry Wright, noted ar-
chitect, during the summer months
of 1932.
Allan A. Twichell, who helped pre-
pare the studies and sketches, will be
in the exhibition hall this afternoon
from 1 to 3 p. m. to personally ex-
plain the exhibit.
Novel Idea.
"The idea of planning houses espe-
cially meant for hillsides is some-
thing new in architecture, "Mr. Twi-
chel said in an interview yesterday.
"Hills are prevalent in many cities
from the east to the west but, due
to the present system of housebuild-
ing, they have baffled builders and
real-estate subdividers. We have ex-
plored in plan the possibilities of
hillsides and the result of our work
is now being shown.
"Many city blocks have been laid
out for desirable neighborhoods. If,
during the process of building it up,
some unwanted element creeps in,
the value of property in that district
will noticeably .decrease. In our plan
of group housing, the district is first
completely built up, with the com-
munity kept always in mind. The
plan will greatly stabilize and protect
"By group housing one benefits
economically and at the same time
enjoys added convenience. Although
two of the side walls are joined," Mr.
Twichell stated, "you have more ab-
solute privacy than can be found in
most city houses with neighbors only
a few yards away on each side.
