Shell Collection'
Given Museums
By Dr. M. Ellis
Said To Be One Of Best
Groups Ever Given; To
Form Basis Of Study
A collection of about 10,000 mussel
shells from the Mississippi River dis-
trict arrived in Ann Arbor yesterday
afternoon as a gift to the University
Museums by Dr. M. M. Ellis, member
01' the physiology department of the
University of Missouri and director of
the division of the U. S. Bureau of
Fisheries devoted to investigations of
interior waters.
The collection, which was given for
taxonomic studies and which will add
considerable information to the dis--
tribution and ecology of the mussels,
was called "one of the finest gifts
ever presented to the mollusk division
of the University Museums" by Dr.
Henry van der Schalie, assistant cur-
ator of the mollusk division, who re-
turned yesterday from a two-week
visit with Dr. Ellis.
Dr. Ellis is internationally known
for his success in developing the glo-
chidia, or larval-form of mussels, so
that they are able to grow without
being at any time parasitic on fish.,
It was indirectly from those studies
that the donated collection was
Through his discovery, Dr. Ellis was
able to grow millions of these mus-
sels within his laboratories at Colum-
bia, Mo., omitting the complex para-
sitic stage and thus greatly aiding all
industries which depend on mussel-
shells for raw material.
In transferring the young musselsl
from the laboratory to the fresh-
water streams, however, extreme care
was necessary to avoid any unsuitable
places where pollution or silting might
destroy any of the laboratory reared
Financed by the government, a
careful examination of all the waters
up and down the Mississippi River
and %its tributaries was made by
dredging the bottoms. It was from
this dredging that Dr. Ellis und the
desirable locations for pla ing the
mussels and it was from the shells
brought up in dredging that the do-
nated collection was made.,
"Because of the great cost in dredg-
ing the rivers, no similar examina-
tion of the river-bottom has ever been
made before," Dr. van der Schalie
said, "and consequently considerable,
new and valuable information is ex-

According to Dr. Link, personality'

something which certain people have
and others lack" for with the new
P.Q. (personality quotient) tests the
individual's personality is measur-
able. Furthermore, a personality can;
be developed by training if the in-;
dividual will make an effort to mas-
ter the necessary qualities. As the
P.Q. is a yardstick designed to
measure and compare intelligence, so
the P.Q. is a yardstick designed to
measure and compare personality
which he defines as the extent to
which one is able to interest and in-
fluence other people.
However, according to Professor
Adams although it is a fine theory as
far as it goes, it is not broad enough
in scope to adequately cover the prob-
lem of personality. There As little
doubt he said, that anyone who finda
the formula for making a good im-
pression on other people can succeed
in improving that impression if he
tries hard enough, but social popu-

Dr. Link's tests, is not the total per-

not complete.

day doesn't seek to enthrone any-
thing-not even "humanity."
This generation does not require
any object of worship, Mr. Marley ex-
plained; it operates on the principle
that the aesthetic and ethical im-
pulses of the individual should find
expression, and that an environment
must be created which will prove
hospitale to these high impulses.
If this new environment were
created, Mr. Marley pointed out, the
old distinction between religion on
the one hand, and the church on the
other hand, would be resol'ed.
However, Mr. Marley concluded,
the institutional aspects of religion
can not be entirely escaped; the
church is responsible for the acts of
the individuals who pioneered in the
field of religion. These men would
probably not have made their contri-
butions had it not been for the church
in the first place.
