Thomas Paine's Writings
Advocate Plan Of Old
(Continued from Page ')
will furnish the rising generation with
means to prevent their becoming poor.
"It is the practice of what has un-
justly obtained the name of civiliza-
tion to make some provision for
persons becoming poor or wretched
only at the time they become so.
Would it not, even as a matter of ec-
onomy, be far better to devise means
to prevent their becoming poor? This
can best be done by making every
person, when arrived at the age of 21
years, an inheritor of something to
Proceeding from the young man or
woman .just come of age, Paine esti-
mated for that person a life expec-
tancy of at least 30 more years, or
an average longevity of about 50
years. Thus the property inherited
at 21 would be bequeathed usually
at the age of 50, resulting in a turn-
over of the national wealth in a cycle
of 30 years.
On this basis, he maintained, when
the older generation reached an age
of 50, either that older generation or
the generation coming of age must
beedeprived of its means of support.
This he proposed to remedy by his
"old age spension"
Paine then computed from figures
on the wealth of England used by
William Pitt for an income tax
scheme in his 1796 budget that an
inheritance tax should obtain an
annual fund of 5,666,666 pounds
sterling. Of this, four million pounds
would be expended on the old age
pament, and 1,350,000 pounds for
the "birthright" of persons reaching
The remainder of 316,000 pounds
would care for the "blind and lame
totally incapable of earning a liveli-
hood" at the same rate as the aged.
The important part played in mod-
ern society by the librarian ws em-
phasized by Dr. William W. Bishop,
librarian of the University, in a talk
given yesterday in Angell Hall. The
talk was one of the vocational series
being sponsored by the Literary Col-
lege for all undergraduate students
planning to enter a profession.
The work of the librarian, Dr. Bish-
op said, is highly specialized, and re-
quires a great deal of preparation.
The backbone of the librarian's work,
he said, is a knowledge of books, their
use and their servicing, but, he added,
there is practically no experience
which cannot be of value, since he
must be able through his knowledge
tosatisfy an immense variety of
The activities of the librarian have
been greatly extended in recent years,
said Dr. Bishop, and especially into
the field of adult education. At all
of the leading schools discussed by Dr.
Bishop, special training as a librarian
requires a two-year period of study,
taken after the student has obtained
The most important requirements
for admission into the courses for
librarians at the University, he said,
are a degree and a reading knowledge
of French and German. A high scho-
larship standing is also required.
The next professional lecture will
be given by Prof. R. B. Rodkey of the
School of Business Administration on
Tuesday, April 2.

Students In 1859 Were Thrilled
By Six-Piece ' Iniverset Band'
Pictures Reveal Contrasts
In History Of Michigan's
When Michigan s "Fighting Hun-
dred" march down State Street the
stirring strains of "Varsity" can thrill
the followers of the band no more
than Michigan's six-piece "University
Band" must have thrilled the students
back in 1859.
A collection of pictures on the walls
of the rehearsal room in Morris Hall
reveal striking contrasts in each stage
of the band's development, the most
important evidence of its early history
being an old sepia photograph of "Les
Sans Souci-University Band," show-
ing six men with instruments not now
used except in concert bands, but
which were common until long after
the Civil War.
Much of the early data on the band
has been lost over the long period it
has been alive, but it is known the
band began to play at football games,
according to one history, as far back
as 1897, though still entirely a student
organization partially recognized by
the athletic association.
It was in 1913 that the Varsity Band
first gained official recognition and
became a unit of the University. It
was in that year that George Olsen,
'13-'14, first tossed a broomstick over
the cross-bar on the gridiron, inaug-
urating a stunt that every band in the
country follows today.
In return for the University's finan-
cial support, the band was expected
to furnish music at all football and
baseball games and to furnish music
at all general University occasions,
such as the Convocation, the Regents'
Reception, and at Commencement.
From 1897 to 1899 the band made
a number of out-of-town trips, to
Detroit, Grand Rapids and Chicago.
Probably the latter was the longest
trip until 1914 when the bandsmen
made the journey to Harvard which
caused the praises of Michigan to be
sung all over the East.
Today's Varsity Band numbers 100
members and the drum-major and a
staff of a dozen men. From the old

days when rehearsals were held in
haphazard locations - Ann Arbor
High School, Harris Hall, University
Hall, the fencing and boxing room

Store, and downtown in the rooms

the band has been elevated to the
position of occupying its own quarters
in Morris Hall.
Paralleling the University's growth,
this huge military and concert organ-
ization is a startling contrast to the
unpretentious six-man band of 1859.
with its two violins, two flutes, a gui-
tar, and a. 'cello. Today's "Fighting
Hundred" carries the 77-year-old
name as proudly as a veteran organ-
ization should the boasts of such an
imposing record not only among the
men and women of Michigan, but

it since its inception over three-quar-
ters of a century ago.
