Mayor Issues,
Proclamation
F NorNavy Day
To Commemorate Order
Of Continental Congress
Establishing Navy
Mayor Robert. A. Campbell yester-
day issued the following proclamation
ordering the observance of Navy Day
on Saturday, commemorating the
establishment of the United States
Navy by the Continental Congress in
1775:
"Whereas, Saturday, Oct. 27, has
been designated as Navy Day, the an-
niversary of the establishment of the
American Navy by the Continental
Congress in 1775, and,
"Whereas, this day will be observed
by the citizens of this country, as a
tribute to the past and present serv-
ices, which the navy of the United
States has rendered the nation during
one hundred and fifty-eight years,
and to the men who have responded
in times of peril to the call to arms,
and who stand ready at all times to
defend their lives, if necessary, the
ideals and institutions of this great
country.
"Therefore, be it resolved, as mayor
of Ann Arbor by virtue of the author-
ity vested in me by the law, I do des-
ignate Saturday, Oct. 27, 1934, as
"Navy Day," and urge that our ap-
preciation of the loyal services of the
navy be shown at a display of the
national colors, and that appropriate
exercises be held to commemorate the
occasion.",
Signed, Robert A. Campbell.

ated since the opening of the semester
by the Vanguard Club in the social

Baffled ByHoles In
Skulls Of Earliest

Michigan

Indians

Why Indians who roamed the
Michigan wilderness long before the
coming of the white man bored small
holes in the skulls of the dead is
proving a knotty problem to Dr. W.
B. Hinsdale, associate in charge of
the Great Lakes division of the An-
thropology Museum and professor-;
emeritus of the theory and practice
of medicine.
Thesdiscovery of several such baf-
fling specimens was announced byj
Dr. Hinsdale yesterday. It is only in
this area, southeastern Michigan and
parts of Ontario, that skulls bearing
the markings have 'ever been found.!
No other museum in the United States
reports a like discovery.'
This most recent discovery wasj
made in Oakland county near Farm-
ington. There were other bones in
the mound, many bearing the un-
explained tiny holes.
While these bones are not on dis-
play, Dr. Hinsdale states that he will '
be glad to show them to anyone in-
terested.
'Unnamed Orchids j
Will Be On Display I
Prof. Felix G. Gustavson, of the bot-
any department announced yesterday3
that the second of a series of plant;
displays has been placed on exhibi-
tion in the showcase on the third
floor of the Natural Science Building.
The exhibit consists of two new'
varieties, as yet unnamed, of the or-2
chid, and a violet-like plant, thel
African violet, a native' of Africa. 4
The orchids were collectedbyProf.I
Haully Bartlett of the botany depart-I
ment on an expedition to Central
America in 1931. One variety is a vio-
let-colored flower from British Hon-
duras. The other is a delicate yellow
specimen from Guatemala.
This is the first blooming of the
orchids since they were brought to the
University gardens and the blossoms 1
are to be preserved for future study. '
