could use in the lamps in their dwell-
ings. The occurrence of a fire in a
building occupied by Professor Agnew
rendered it imperative on the part
of the committee to enforce the most

exact and rigid observance of the
terms of the fire insurance policies
granted to the Regents. The Super-
intendent of Grounds was instructed
to require the professors to suppress
the use of all lights in every building
except those using sperm oil, tallow
or lard.
These early meetings of the execu-
tive committee were held in Detroit,
and in comparison with the great
amount of work accomplished by the
executive committee now, their duties
were comparatively light.

Educators To Talk
At St. Louis Parley
Several members of the faculty of
the School of Education plan to
attend the 1936 mid-winter confer-
ence of National Educational Associa-
tions this weekend at St. Louis.
Among those who will be present
are Prof. George Meyer of the De-
partment of Vocational Education,
Dr. M. G. Fraser, special lecturer in
education, who will present a paper
at one of. the conferences dealing
with the influence of pressure groups
on text book making, and Dean James
B. Edmonson of the School of Edu-
cation, who will address the confer-;
ence on the subject: "New Educa-
tional Agencies for High School Grad-
Prof. Howard McClusky will also
present a paper on educational psy-

monuments in Rome.
Miss Van Deman praised the ar-
cheological work of the Fascist gov-
ernment, which, she stated, has done
more during Mussolini's term of office
than any of the governments which
preceded it. This fact was clearly
illustrated by slides of Rome before
and following the excavations.
Most of the work, Miss Van De-
man said, has been done in the vi-
cinity of the Coliseum and the Ap-
pian Way, which has been rebuilt
and broadened. She stated that the
g4(dtest Oroblems encountered fin
excavating the ruins was the crowded
condition of the modern city. She
showed by slides how this situation
has been relieved, enabling workers
to uncover the magnificent forums
of Caesar and Augustus, along with
many of the buildings surrounding
them. She stated that in three years
the work of excavation will have been
completed, and ancient Rome will
have been uncovered in its entity.
Miss Van Deman, who was grad-
uated from the University in 1891,
was a Carnegie research professor
here from 1925 to 1930, and is a Fel-
low Emeritus of the Carnegie Insti-
tute of Washington. She is also a
member of the American Academy
in Rome, where she has resided dur-
ing the last four years. In that time
she has assisted in excavations car-
ried on by the Academy and the gov-
ernment. She has, according to Prof.
Leroy Waterman, dated more of the
relics of Rome than any other ar-
cheologist who has taken part in the
