Gesell Gets Grant
A $5,000 grant will be allocated to
Dr. Gesell, head of the physiology de-
partment for "research on the physi-
ology of respiration." The General
.Education Board, another Rockefeller
fund, closely associated with the
Foundation, has extended a grant of
$150,000 voted in 1929 to run over a
five-year period for "research in ad-
vance of humanistic studies." This
does not mean more funds, but that
what is left of the original grant may
be expended. This is being used by
the University Institute of Archeolog-
ical Research. The Institute, composed
of professors from various depart-
mentsi n the University, has used none
of this money for excavations, but for
publication of research books and the
In addition to these, the Foundation
also sanctioned continuation of $95,-

COUncil Given
Pulans To Solve
Water Problem
Water Commissioners Do
Not Believe Alternative
Forms Will Be Adopted
Offering three possible solutions
for Ann Arbor's water problem, the
recommendation of the Board of
Water Commissioners was presented,
to the Common Council Monday
night, in response to its request for
an estimate of the proposed costs of
a softening and filtering plant for
systems using the present well supply
and the Huron River as sources.
The first possible project, a plant
located adjacent to the existing re-
servoir to treat the existing well sup-
ply, would cost $485,000 for construc-

tion, and would involve $92,250 in
annual additional charges.
Secondly, a plant is offered lo-
cated on the Huron River near the
Barton Dam to treat the water of the
Huron River, at an estimated con-
struction cost of $365,000, and involv-
ing $61,750 in additional annual
The third possibility is a plant.lo-
cated on the- Huron River near the
Barton Dam to treat the existing
well supply exclusive of the Steere
Farm supply, and in addition the
water from the Huron River to the
extent that the same may be re-
quired. It is estimated that such a
plant will cost $403,000 for construc-
tion, and will have $71,450 in addi-
,tional annual costs.
Although the maximum pumping
capacity for the present system is not
over six million gallons daily, the
proposed plans were offered on a ba-
sis of nine million gallons per day.
Reports and recommendations have
been offered back and forth between
the Council and the Board for 50
years. Little action is expected at

Lorado Taft, Famous Sculptor,
Lauds Growth Of Michigan Art

High praise was sounded to the
progress of art work at Michigan
by Lorado Taft, world-famous sculp-
tor, when he paid a flying visit to
Ann Arbor yesterday. Returning to
Chicago from an address before
Ypsilanti State Normal students, Mr.
Taft stopped at the University long
enough to examine the sculpture
pieces now, on exhibit at the League.
Four years ago, at the Convention
of the American Federation of Art
in Washington, D. C., Mr. Taft spoke
of the new development in sculpture
work at the University of Michigan,
stating that the movement bore
watching in the art activities of the
Yesterday, after observing the most
recent pieces on exhibit, Mr. Taft-
declared, "The work is even more
surprising than I had expected, and
I certainly compliment the students
and Professor Avard Fairbanks for
their success. The exhibit as a whole
shows a remarkable degree of abil-

ity." While he seemed to hesitate
in speaking of individual pieces, Mr.
Taft cited the work of Helen Bailey,
grad, and Harry Furst, '35, as show-
ing particular promise, He has at
various times mentioned Prof. Fair-
banks' "Head of a Crusader" as one
of the finest he has ever seen done.
White-haired, continental in, ap-
pearance, and gracious of manner,
Mr. Taft looks the part of the dis-
tinguished artist. Born in Tllinois
in 1860, he was educated at the Uni-'
versity of Illinois and in Paris at the
Ecole des Beaux-Arts. His most fa-
mous work includes the Indian figure
Blackhawk, a concrete statue of gi-
gantic proportions, at Rock River,
Ill., and the celebrated Columbus
Memorial Fountain at Washington,
D. C.
In his address at Ypsilanti, Mr.
Taft discussed lighting effects in
sculpture, and also his favorite brain-
child, a museum he has designed to
contain casts of the best pieces of
sculpture in the history of art.

Michigan Gets
Five In Ninth
Beats Toledo
Wolverines Win 5-3 In
First Night Game; Held
Scoreless 8 Innings
TOLEDO, O., May 23. - (Special)
-After being held to one hit for the
first eight innings, Michigan's base-
ball team drove five runs across the
plate in the ninth inning last night
to defeat Toledo University, 5 to 3.
The game was the_ first one ever
played under arc lights by a Michi-
gan nine.
Five singles, coupled with two walks
in the last inning, ended Lippincott's
dominance over the Wolverine bats-
men, and brought in the winning
Petoskey and Paulson singled to
start the inning, and Wittberg's walk
filled the bases. After Regeczi had
fanned, Waterbor drove out another
single to score Petoskey and Paulson
and put Wittberg on third, from
where he scored when Chapman
forced Waterbor at second. Lerner
worked Lippincott for another walk.
The fourth single of the inning, by
Leonard pinch-hitting for Wilson,
drove in Chapman with the winning
run, and Artz added another with a
drive which scored Lerner:
Wilson and Patchin worked on the
mound for the Wolverines and be-
tween them held Toledo to eight hits.
Lippincott, the Toledo pitcher, was
invincible for the first eight innings,
and five Toledo errors did little dam-
age as far as Michigan scoring was
The Ohioans, although they outhit
the Wolverines, failed to bunch their
blows with the same effectiveness,
scoring one run in the seventh and
adding two more in the eighth. Patch-
in held them scoreless in the final
inning after Wilson had left for a

dicap to the Michigan fielders, who
recovered at least temporarily from
their recent disastrous slump.

Lost And Found Finds Much Is
Found, But Little Is Reclaimed

These hot spring days are bringing
heart-rending lamentations from the
lost and found department of the
University. With woe-begone feel-
ings the members of that indispen-
sible unit look over their domain,
searching vainly for a single more
cubic inch in which to store the mul-
titudious articles that stray mysteri-
ously from their owners.
During the winter a super-abund-
ance of perfectly good overcoats,
gloves and scarves poured in. Then
in the month of April, the quality of
lost apparel changed to raincoats and
umbrellas. but the quantity of the,

of the divers articles failed to come
in to reclaim their property.
During the rainy season, if a per-
son lost his raincoat he came into
the department immediately, for it
was very wet outside. But now, if
someone loses his or her hat, or
gloves, or scarf, life goes on just as
safely, and perhaps more comfort-
ably without them.
The net result of this reclamation
failure is a swarm of topcoats, hats,
and other articles that come in and
stay in; and also for the very wor-
ried look on the faces of the attend-
ants who are now beginning to won-
