THE MICHIGAN DAILY
Rainy Days Mean Busy Days
To Lost And Found Department
A weather barometer, as well as1
an indicator of Campus, activities,
may be found in the University's
official lost-and-found department.
Every concert or important lecture
is reflected by a sharp rise in the
number of lost articles. The absent-
mindedness of examination periods
always results in an increased busi-
ness for the department.
After every rain there is a flood
of umbrellas, raincoats, and rubbers.
Hats are an indication that spring
is arriving. The course of winter is
marked by hundreds of strayed
gloves and scarfs, which are the
commonest lost articles.
Other things turned in include all
kinds of clothing, school supplies,
personal accessories, and . . . a dog.
The dog was brought in one day
last week by a student who had
found him in a classroom. The office
wanted to be accommodating, but
as no one claimed the dog he was
ejected at the end of the day.
The system used by the lost-and-
found department is highly efficient.
When an article is turned in, a claim
check is given the finder. The de-
partment then makes every possible
effort to discover the owner, and if
he is identified, a postcard is sent to
If the article is not disposed of
within 60 days it may be claimed
by the finder. Otherwise it is given
to some charitable organization. If
anything valuable is reported lost,
a record is kept of it and the owner
is notified if it is found.
Strangely, one of the most diffi-
cult jobs of the department is to get
students to call for articles, even°
when they have been found. It is also
strange that the frequently-lost keys
and glasses, which are only of value
to the owner, are seldom turned in.
Stilnman Will Go On
Mr. Clark Stillman, former instruc-
tor in the University's German De-
partment, who is now studying con-
temporary Belgian literature in Brus-
sels under the C.B.R. Fellowship, has
been granted a year's continuance
by the Fellowship Committee.
The fellowship, made possible by
the Committe on Belgian Relief, is an
exchange fellowship whereby a Bel-
gian student comes to the United
States to study while an American
student is in Belgium. Excess relief
funds are used to finance the fellow-
At the present time Mr. Stillman is
studying the two types of Belgian
literature, both Flemish and French.
Wisconsin Students Get
Free Wireless Service
MADISON, Wis., March 28.- Stu-
dents at the University of Wisconsin
are now able to have messages sent
by wireless to any part of the world,
at no cost to them.
A senior electrical engineer, Robert
R. Mallory, offers this service on the
1,000-watt transmitter he built in the
Mechanical Engineering Building a
year and a half ago.
Although he cannot guarantee re-
ceipt of all messages sent, in more
than a year that the set has been in
operation he has seldom failed to
reach the desired destination.
