Tells Of Plans
For Graduate
School Future
Reorganization Will Give
'More Distinct Identity,'
Ruthven Says In Report
With the appointment of Dr. C. S.
Yoakum, vice-president in charge of
educational investigations, to the po-
sition of dean of the Graduate School
a reorganization of the Graduate
School was begun last year, Presi-
dent Alexander Ruthven stated in
his annual report to the Board of
The reason for the reorganization,
according to the report, "is to place
it more distinctly above the other
schools and colleges, to organize
within it all of the research which
is being done in the University and
to select more rigidly its faculty and
the courses to be given."
It wasbelieved by thePresident in
his report that giving the school a
more distinct identity should stimu-
late investigation, improve instruc-
tion, and "attract much-needed fi-
nancial support."
New Committee Set Up
Incidental to the reorganization
the Regents on March 1, 1935 trans-
ferred to the University Committee
on Scholarly Publications the re-
sponsibility of deciding what manu-
scripts of a scholarly nature are ac-
ceptable for publication by the Uni-
versity and of determining any ques-
tions as to the relative merit of the
manuscripts submitted. The execu-
tive board of the Graduate School
formerly did this.
The Committee set up will consist
of Dr. Frank Robbins, assistant to
the president and managing editor
of the University Press, who is to act
as the executive secretary; the Dean
of the Graduate School; and seven
members of the faculty representing
languages and literature, the social
sciences, mathematics and physical
sciences, biological sciences, health
sciences, fine arts, and the museums.
Editorial Board To Have Charge
The Regents also provided that the
series of scholarly publications such
as the Michigan Business Studies
and the Humanistic Series, should be
in charge of an editorial board or an
editor to be appointed by the Presi-
dent and that the board will be the
final editorial authority for all the
volumes in the series.
"While their editors are not other-
wise responsible to the Committee
on all publications unless the latter
specifically directs to the contrary,
it is expected that the committee will
take charge of the general distribu-
tion if not the editing and manufac-
ture, of all publications by and in the
name of the University," President
Ruthven said in his report.
Hebrard To Speak
At Cerele Francais
Prof. Jean Hebrard, of the School
of Architecture, will speak in the
third of the series of lectures spon-
sored by Le Cercle Francais, to be
presented at 4:15 p.m. today, in Room
231 Angell Hall.
The subject of Professor Hebrard's
talk is to be "French Architecture of
the Middle Ages." He will trace the
evolution of medieval architectural
from primitive times t the period
when the Christian church held its
greatest political and secular power,
and will seek to show the basic sim-
ilarity of motive underlying any type
of architecture, ancient or modern."
The lecture is to be accompanied

by the showing of slides for the pur-I
pose' of illustrating the various points
of the talk, and will be given entirely
in French.

1935 Mild Year
In Ann Arbor,
Figures Show
No Sub-Zero Weather Hit
Campus In 12 Months,
Observatory Reports
Whether it thought so or not, Ann
Arbor experienced an unusually mild
year in 1935, accordingh to weather
statistics released by the University
Observatory yesterday.
A striking feature of last year's
weather was the complete absence of
sub-zero temperatures. The lowest
temperature for the year was an even
zero, far above the lows of preceding
years, while the high for the year lay
at 95.3 degrees, an average high. The
average temperature of the year
stood at 48, which is precisely the
average of all annual averages for
the past 26 years.
Precipitation Below Average
Precipitation for the year was be-
low the average set by past years. The
total precipitation, including both
rain and snow was estimated at 25.6
inches, the average for other years
being 29.9. The month of May had
the greatest precipitation, 4.16 inches,
and October claimed the lowest of .85
The highest wind velocity for any
24 hours occured on Jan. 17, and
stood at 426.8 miles, at least 1,000
miles away from the speed of a hur-
Many Cloudy Days
The greatest amount of snow which
lay on the ground at any one time,
was 6.5 inches, in February.
The year had 198 completely cloudy
days, 75 semi-cloudy days and 92
days which were clear at least 70 per
cent of the time. October was the
most agreeable month, having nine
consecutively clear days, while No-
vember won the prize for-spoiling
the most outings, having piled up 11
consecutively cloudy days.
ollister To Read
Kipling Selections
As one of his regular weekly read-
ings, Prof. Richard D. Hollister of
the speech department has planned
to give selections from the poetry of
Rudyard Kipling when he meets with
his group at 4 p.m. Thursday in Room
205 Mason Hall.
The subject of the reading was se-
lected a number of days ago, but
Professor Hollister feels that it is now
of added significance in view of the
great author's serious illness.
"A good many people," he said,
"think of Kipling as a story-teller.
The average person does not realize
how voluminous a verse-writer he

ship was leaving for the South Pacific and East Coast.

Rich Variety Of old And New
Bindings In Library's Display

Lavish designs in richly toned
morocco, distinguished sprinkled
and marbled calf, stamped pigskin
and deerskin - the oldest and the
newest trends in fine book binding-
are included in the current exhibit in
the cases of the General Library. The
volumes, representing the various
characteristics of artistic binding and
those bound by famous fine binders,
were selected and prepared for the
exhibit by Miss Ella Hymans, curator
of rare books.
Most of the bindings shown are
hand carved, the result of much te-
dious labor with hundreds of small
tools, explained Miss Hymans. Book
binding is a little known craft but
one of the most artistic as evidenced
by the beautiful carvings in the bind-
Early Bindings Durable
The bindings cover the period from
the 15th century to the 20th cen-
tury. The early bindings are unique
in their character and durability with
boards covered in many cases with
deerskin, calf skin, or pigskin and
metal corners. One volume, a collec-
tion of Latin manuscripts in its or-
Flint Workers
Storm WPA' s
FLINT - (A) - One hundred and
fifty WPA workers who stormed Gen-
esee county's WPA headquarters yes-
terday demanding emergency food
and coal orders to carry them over
until the next payday, Jan. 18, were
back at their jobs today.
A group of 22 workers, who acted
as representatives for the striking
laborers, conferred more than 15
minutes with Victor S. Woodward,
county emergency welfare director,
and reached an agreement that cir-
cumstances warranted an emergency
As a result the intake office re-
mained open more than an hour and
a half overtime last night while the
strikers were interviewed and emer-
gency orders distributed.
The workmen charged that they
had not been informed, when paid
their salary from Dec. 27 to Jan.
3, that they would not be paid
again until Jan. 18. The regularly,
scheduled pay as of Jan. 6 was dis-
tributed early to give the men money
over the holidays.

iginal binding of deerskin over boards
also has metal bosses and a chain
attached by which the book was
fastened to the wall of the case. This
is the only volume in the library
which still has its chain attached,
although other books show marks of
former chains.
In the same case are exhibited two
manuscripts illustrating the destruc-
tion of manuscripts by using them
for the binding of books. This is still
a common practice, stated Miss Hy-
mans, and many contemporary man-
uscripts are destroyed in this man-
Morocco Binding Included
Included in the exhibit is the 17th
century morocco binding in the Al-
dine style with the center intaglio
in silver. Whenever an Aldine bind-
ing is exhibited, remarked Miss Hy-
mans, one is reminded of the patron
of the family, the famed statesman
Jean Grolier but who is remembered
mostly as a great book lover and col-
lector and the first comparatively
modern collector of fine bindings. It
was through his aid that the Aldine
family carried on its famous binding
and many of the books issued by the
family were bound for Grolier in the
fine style.
Many of the bindings are the pro-
lucts of the London binders, Robert
aiviere and his son. The famous 18th
century binder, Roger Payne, with
his chararteristic style; Samuel
Mearne and his renowned cottage
style; Sangorskieand Sutcliffe,
Zaehnsdorf, and Bedford are a few
whose works are included in the ex-

Weeks A f ter Fall
President Ruthven's back porch,
the scene of his accidentNew Year's
Eve, is now in the process of being
made safe by the buildings and
grounds department. The dark and
slippery steps that were so treach-
erous before, will be both illuminated
and protected from snow when the
present construction job is completed.
Described as a "locking of the
stable door" by Bryant Walker Ruth-
ven, the president's youngest son, the
preventative measures consist of a
shelter over the steps and an electric
light. The roof is a diminutive
marquee and should provide an ef-
fective shelter for the steps, Ruthven
also remarked.
