Library Exhibit Commemorates .400th
Anniversary Of Printed English Bible

Marking the national commemo-
raticn of the 400th anniversary of
the printing of the first complete
English Bible, the current General
Library exhibit in the cases of the
front hall is dedicated to Bibles. The

The earliest manuscript of the
Greek Orthodox Bible extant shown
in the display is the Codex of Epis-
ties of Paul. Part of this extremely
important document is owned by the

British Museum. The page shown
of this manuscript has turned brown
with age, and the outline of the sheet
is almost indiscernible, being torn
about the edges. Hovere, in spite

Aim Of Campus Organization

Society Evolved Six Years
Ago Under Direction Of
Professor Brackett
By WILLIAM SHACKLETON
Intensive persuading, cajoling, or
threatening were once the only means
by which the taciturnity of the tech-
nical man was disturbed. Today the
time is in view when every engineer
or architect will be as publicly vocal
as are now the members of the legal
or journalistic professions.
And if that time ever does actually
arrive, it will be to an organization
founded on the campus six years'
ago that a considerable part of the
praise, or blame, if you prefer your
engineers silent - will have to be ac-
corded.
Began Six Years Ago
Six years ago there were in the
engineering and architectural col-
leges 10 students who decided that
something should be done to enable
the technical man to explain pub-
licly his methods, objects and ideals
in a clear, understandablenand in-
teresting fashion.
Taking their idea to Prof. Robert
D. Brackett of the engineering Eng-
Dates Announced
For Hillel Plays
The date for the presentation of
three one-act plays by the Hillel
Players was set yesterday for Dec. 17.
The plays will be given in the Lydia
Mendelssohn Theatre.
Casts for the three productions
were also selected. Ada Zolla will
direct Lawrence Langner's "Another
Way Out." The cast will include
Stella Blum, '38, Phyllis Diamond,
'38, Sylvia Guterman, '36, Leonard
Kasle, '38, and William Wolfner, '38E.
The satire "Sham" will be directed
by Louise Samek, '38, whose cast is
made up by Morley Baer, '37, Louis
Goldberg, '37, and Irene Jaskulik, '38.1
The third play, "The Finger of
God" by Wilde, will include Bob Fish-
grund, '37, Marguerite Merkel, '37,
Richard Rome, '36.
Frank Heyward Consults
Professors On Forestry
Frank Heyward, '29, of the United
States southern experimental branch
station located at Lakeville, Florida,
is visiting and consulting members in
the School of Forestry and Conserva-
tion today and tomorrow. He is in-
terviewing the faculty in regard to
some of the work being conducted by
the department£ in the South, Prof.
Dow V. Baxter of the forestry school
announced.
Heyward has done a great deal of
investigative work on the affect of
forest fire on long leaf pine forests
and is the author of the bulletin, "The
Effect of Forest Fires on Long Leaf
Pine Soils."

lish department, they evolved an
honorary speech society which they
called Stump Speakers' Society.
Later this name was freely trans-
lated into Greek, and from the initial
letters of the Greek words was de-
rived the name Sigma Rho Tau.
Constitution Set Up
When the preliminaries of setting,
up a constitution and officers had
been dispensed with, the new society
got down to the serious business of
talking. Other engineering students
found themselves talking in the so-
ciety, too. Before long, through the
efforts of Prof. F. N. Menefee of the
engineering mechanics department,
the Associated Technical Societies of
Detroit became actively interested in
the society's progress.
With the aid and sponsorship of
these technical societies, chapters of
the organization have been formed
at Detroit Institute of Technology,
Michigan State College, the College
of the City of Detroit, and Wayne
University. Meanwhile the original
10 in the University had grown to well
over 100 individuals desirous of learn-
ing through actual experience and
example the best means by which
to keep tongue and brain operating
simultaneously.
Several Forms Used
This learning to speak was and is
accomplished in several different
manners. Debates are, of course, a
part of the speech program, but play
a comparatively minor role in the
society. Exposition of engineering
topics is carried on at length; com-
mendatory - or otherwise - discus-
sions of the accomplishments of fa-
mous engineers are encouraged; con-
ferences are held between the various
chapters; and the art of telling a
good story in a professional manner
is practiced.
In addition to the students, this
society numbers among its members
President Alexander G. Ruthven',
Dean-emeritus Mortimer E. Cooley,
Dean Herbert C. Sadler, Dean W. L.
Coffee of the College of the City
of Detroit, and Dean H. B. Dirkes of
Michigan State College.
