Socialist Party And Unions
Have Same Purposes,
Miss Helen Topping, secretary to
Toyohiko Kagawa, the Japanese re-
ligious and economic leader, ad-
dressed a group of 60 students and
faculty members Tuesday night at
Miss Topping, who has studied at
the University of Southern California
and the Pacific School of Religion,
discussed the origin and development
of industrial cooperative unions, and
traced the history of the unions from
their founding in 1844 in the weav-
ing center of Rochdale, England.
Since that time the original member-
ship has grown from 28 to almost 28,-
000,000 in England, she said, and the
different unions have ships sailing
five seas. The individual unions are:
medical, producers, credit, manufac-
turers, consumers, insurance and ma-
Miss Topping pointed out that al-
though the goal of the union groups
is materially the same as that of the
Socialist party, the method of ap-
proach is different, in that the unions
are started on an equal sharing
basis in a small group, and are al-
lowed to develop naturally, while the
Socialist party would start its ac-
tivities on a large scale, allowing no
time for development.
Cooperative unions, Miss Topping
said, have found their strongest sup-
port outside of England in Sweden
and Japan, and have been established
in 50 countries of the world.
At the conclusion of herdtalk, Miss
Topping conducted a question period
and forum. She also announced that
Kagawa, who will soon start an
American tour, will be present in Ann
Arbor next March.
Museum Brushes Dust, Cobwebs Tapping Report
From Old Books For Exhibition, Lauds Alumni's,
Natural History Is Theme'
Of Display; Oldest Book
Dates From 1861
A temporary exhibit of books on
the natural history of Michigan,
prepared by Miss Crystal Thompson,
director of visual education of the
University Museums, has recently
been put on display on the third floor
of the University Museums Building.
The exhibit includes some of the
earliest publications of the State
Geological Survey and of the Uni-
versity. The oldest book, published
in 1860, is the first biological report
of Michigan, and was compiled under
the direction of Alexander Winchell,
state geologist. It includes descrip-
tions of mammals, birds, reptiles, and
mollusks found in Michigan.
A journal of the museum of the
University covering the period from
1870 to 1880 and also published under
Dr. Winchell's direction, is included
in the collection. It is actually a sort
of diary of the work of the museum,
Miss Thompson said.
A book on a survey of the lower
peninsula, made from 1873 to 1875
by C. Rominger, is also being dis-
played. It is devoted to Michigan's
fossil coral and describes for the first
time several fossil corals which are
now being shown in the Museum.
One of the earliest descriptions of
Isle Royale is given in a book by
Charles C. Adams, entitled "An Eco-
logical Survey of Isle Royal, Lake
Superior," published in 1909.
"A Biological Survey of Sand Dune
Region on the South Shore of Sag-
inaw Bay, Michigan," is the title of
a book prepared under the direction
