After Final Exams
Lending Library Of 'ITexts
Donated And Purchased
With Fund Is Probable
Free textbooks will be provided for
needy students 'next semester if the
plan completed by President Ruthven
and a committee of four faculty men
The plan, modeled on the Loring
W. Andrews library of Yale, provides
for a "lending library" of textbooks,
which is to be maintained by dona-
tions of books from students at the
end of each semester and augmented
by purchases of new books with money
contributed by alumni,
Upon receipt of a written order
from a student's academic counsellor,
or from the University loan commit-.
tee, the librarian will be authorized
to give the students the textbooks he
desires. He may usecthese booksfor
the duration of the course and must
then return them.
Working Since Fall
The faculty committee which has
been working on the plan since last
Fall consists of Prof. Erich Walter of
the English department, chairman,
Prof. A. D. Moore of the engineerin
school, Dean Edward H. Kraus of the
literary college and Dr. William W.
Donations of books will be accepted
at all libraries until after final exams
it was announced. A further collec-
tion will be made at the end of the
summer session and the library
opened next fall.
"I do not know whether enough
Alumni help will be forthcoming by
next fall," Professor Walter said yes-
terday, "and this means that the nu-
cleus of the library will have to con-
sist of books turned in by students."
When questioned about the scheme
yesterday, President Ruthven indi-
cated that he was very enthusiastic
about the plan.
"There is a very good possibility
of alumni contributing to the library
fund in the future," he said, explain-
ing that there would be no necessity
for applying to the State for aid.
Not Cooperative
He emphasized ,that the project is
not comparable to a cooperative book-
store since there would be no sales
attacked to the plan. "It is rather an
adjunct to the loan fund," he said. He
pointed out that the awarding of
books would be made on a basis of
need only. "There will be no remun-
eration for students whobdonate books
at the end of their courses, and there
will be no fee for the students to
whom books are lent,"he added.
When asked whether there is the
possibility that the library will reach
the stage where books will be provided
free by the University for all stu-
dents, President Ruthven said that he
hoped not. "I believe students should
own their books and retain as many
of them as they possibly can.
1937 Ensians
Are Distributed
After Accident
In spite of the breakdown of the
truck that was carrying the new 1937
edition of the 'Ensian from Fowler,
Ind., to Ann Arbor the books arrived
safe and sound at 4 p.m. yesterday
afternoon for distribution.
The books had been scheduled to
arrive at 7 a.m. yesterday morning,
thus causing the 'Ensian business
staff a great deal of anxiety. At 3
p.m. yesterday afternoon the staff re-

ceived a telegram which said that
the truck carrying the year books had'
crashed into a train and that 500
copies had been destroyed. The staff
began to suspect trickery when they
saw several members of The Daily
editorial staff with a glint of merri-
ment in their eyes.
Suspense was ended when the
books arrived unharmed at four
o'clock. As soon as word got around
that the copies were ready for dis-
tribution the Publications Building
was beseiged by a mob of impatient
students. Members of the business

Delbert Clark Reviews
Eaton's 'John Drakin'
Delbert Clark, manager of the
Washington bureau of the New
York Times and a regular contrib-
utor to the Times Sunday Mag-
azine, has reviewed "John Drakin,"
a posthumous novel by G. D. Ea-
ton, for this issue of The Daily.
First "G.D.E." and then Mr.
Clark and his Daily Sunday sup-
lement staff resigned from The
Daily in 1923, provoking a contro-
versy that drew editorial comment
from the nation's leading newspa-
pers. In his review, which will be
found on page 4, Mr. Clark relates

he pointed out. "Much of it has dealt

said, however, that there is no doubt
that the work could be performed as

Fuller Decries
Judging Union
By Individuals
Union Called Cooperative
Effort; Organizers Seen
Militant, Ford Passive
Labor movements, as democratic
institutions, should not be thought
of in terms of the characters of John
L. Lewis, Homer Martin or any other
single leader, Richard C. Fuller of
the sociology department and Milton
Kemnitz, Grad, agreed in an inter-
view yesterday.
"One of the greatest obstacles in
the path of unionization," Mr. Fuller
warned, "is the misconception re-
sulting from the association of a
single man with his union. With
only a little imagination, the public
tends to think of the leader as an
agitator and rabble rouser. Thus in
the hands of a demagogue, the
movement is easily discredited."

Newspaper accounts, in dealing with
personalities, overdramatize leaders,
rather than the workers in the union,
Mr. Kemnitz said.
"Ford, for a great many people,
symbolizes an industrial individualistl
who controls a key position in society.
A goodly section of the American
people still have faith in this ideal,,,
lie said. "His leadership is passive."
"Labor leaders, on the other hand,
depict the militant, aggressive type '
of person whom many are beginning
to regard highly now, and who stand
for an ideal of cooperative effort in

Almost 1,000 seniors from all the!
schools and colleges on campus are
expected to take part in the annual
Swingout, traditional senior ceremony
signifying the seniors' exit from col-
lege life, at 4:30 p.m. today in front
of the Library steps, if it does not
The Swingout committee has de-
vised a new method of letting the
seniors know whether the event will
take place or be postponed until 3:30
p.m. tomorrow. If the committee de-
cides to hold the event, Prof. Wilmot
Pratt, University carillonneur, will
play the march, "Varsity," to signify
that the graduates-to-be will march.
If the weather is adverse, Professor
Pratt will play "Laudes Atque Car-
mina" on the Baird bells.
Dannemiller Directs
As a last minute instruction, Frank-
lin'T. Dannermiller, '37, who is chair-
man of the Swingout Committee, an-
nounced that members of Druids,
Michigamua, Vucans and Sphinx,
campus honor societies which are to
police the line of march, are asked
to meet in front of the Library steps
at 4 p.m.
Each of the classes from the various
schools will have a number and its
name staked at some place in front
of the library designating where its
section of the march is to form. The

Faculty members will have the op-
portunity of hearing Dr. William S.
Sadler of Chicago speak upon the
general theme of "Social Implications
of Psychiatry" at a luncheon given in
Dr. Sadler's honor by a faculty com-
mittee Wednesday in the Union. He
will lecture at 4:15 p.m. in the Na-
tural Science Auditorium.
The subject of Dr. Sadler's lecture
will be "Religion and Mental Hy-
Dr. E. W. Blakeman said that the
reason for the Religious Education
Committee introducing a physician
rather than a minister upon a relig-
ious subject was that if religion is
to become effective for developing
the character in the education of stu-
dents it will be necessary to enlist
members of all the various profes-

sions in the difficult task of re-think-
ing religion in American life.
The visit of Dr. Sadler brings to
the campus a practicing physician
with twenty years of experience in
the city of Chicago.

Social scientists and government

land utilization conference closed
The 33 delegates were agreed that
the plan of the Michigan Committee
for Research on Land Utilization was
a long step forward in using Univer-
sity facilities for the gathering.of in-
formation upon which government
agencies might take action.
E. H. Wieking, chief of the Land
Use Planning section of the Resettle-
ment Administration, stated that the
project was "splendid in focusing
University resources on a specific!
project and that there was a real
need for further research of a similar
nature to supplement the work oft
government agency in this field."
The afternoon session under ther
chairmanship of Prof. John D. Black
of the economics department of Har-t
vard University was devoted to a
critical analysis of the methods off
carrying out the Cheboygan Countyt
plan. Its sponsors expect that it will
bring about an adjustment of the
people to the land so as to ensure thei
greatest possible amount of socialc
satisfaction to them and to the com-1

'I Outside' Curb
No Action Taken Towards
Forming Training Table
For Athletes
Faculty athletic advisers of the Big
Ten rejected unanimously yesterday
in a meeting held at the Union an
application of Michigan State College
for admittance into the Conference.
Concluding that although "the in-
stitution was of unexceptionable kind
and character for membership, it
woul be inexpedient to increase the
size of the Conference at this time."-
the group voted down the proposal.
No Action Taken
Other business taken up in the
meeting found the old training table
question left with no action being,
taken, while definite indications were
given that star track athletes would
find their future activities curbed by
the Conference.
On the latter point the committee
stated that "the demand for the serv-
ices of track athletes has of late be-
come greater and greater. Non-col-
legiate institutions," the report con-
tinued, "repeatedly ask for men to
come and run for them. This exces-
sive competition is a threat to the el-
igibility of the participants."
The "expense" money provided for
participating athletes in these games
is often far in excess of their im-
mediate need, the committee assert-
ed, and action will have to be taken
to thoroughly investigate this matter.-

A drafting committee was appoint-t
ed to draw up a motion to restrict
competition in track events to those

Michigan reclaimed its Big Ten
track crown from Indiana yesterday
with 60 points to the Hoosiers 44 be-
fore 6,000 drenched spectators at
Ferry Field. The victory gave the
Wolverines their 15th outdoor title in
the 37 years of competition.
Ohio State finished third with 42
points. Illinois nosed out Wisconsin
for fourth place with 241/2. Wiscon-
sin claimed 23 points, Iowa 91/2, Min-

early lead but Michigan's balance
and power soon took command to put
the Hoytmen safely out in front.
Despite unfavorable weather con-
ditions the meet yielded one new
world record and four Big Ten stan-
dards. The new world mark came
unexpectedly as Michigan's Captain
Bob Osgood flashed over the 120-yard
high hurdles in 14 seconds flat to re-
place the 14.1 mark set last year by
