First fresco work to belong to the
University was completed above the
inner west entrance of the architec-
tural building Monday night by four
students of the College of Architec-
ture under Prof. Jean P. Slusser.
The fresco, which was undertaken
as a project of a newly-organized
class in fresco-painting of the Col-
lege of Architecture, represents a
group symbolizing the activities of
the College of Architecture. It in-
cludes six figures, drawing, history,
sculpture, design and architecture.
Each figure is doing a phase of work
characteristic of the activity it repre-
ents. The men who did the mural,.
besides Professor Slusser include Don-

These guests of the museums have
been chiefly groups of students rang-

grades to college students. A few
clubs and associations have also vis-

Michigan and Ohio, are conducted
through the building by regular
guides maintained by the Department
of Visual Education which has charge
of the correlation of exhibits and also
of the extension work connected with
the museums.

Although mice, when spoken of at
all, are usually mentioned in a de-
precatory tone, man and mouse fall
into the same biological category, ac-
cording to Prof. Lee R. Dice, of the
Laboratory of Vertebrate Genetics. 1
Even mice have their own idiosyn-
crasies, as experiments in the Labora-
tory indicate. For instance, stated
Professor Dice, in the stocks of the
native wild deer mice have arisen a
number of types of behavior abnor -
malities which are classed roughly as
"waltzing" and epilepsy. The "waltz-,
ing" defects have no close similarity
to any human tendency, although it
has been discovered that in old age
these defective mice become deaf, andi
the waltzers stop waltzing, Professor
Dice added. Perhaps, like deaf men,
they can no longer hear the music.
Epilepsy takes different forms due1
to different inherited factors, saidi
Professor Dice. One type of mouse is
goaded into a fit if smoke is blowni
into its face (another human paral-
lel?), while others go into a seizure

keys or the ringing of a bell, he
stated. He pointed out that deaf-
ness, with advancing age, generally
puts a stop to epileptic as well as
waltzing propensities.
Hairless, and also nude, mice arc
bred by Professor Dice and his fellow
work'ers in the Laboratory of Verte-
brate Genetics, where, according to
Professor Dice, is located the largest
nudist colony in the state of Mich-
igan. Some of the hairless mice are
colored, but some are albinos, the
latter a very peculiar-looking animal,
the Professor mentioned.
Like humans, these mice vary in in-
dividual races, some being large, some
small, and -some active and nervous
in behavior, while others are more
sluggish, stated Professor Dice. For
statistical purposes, 2,000 or more
specimens are prepared each year,
their bodies and their bones meas-
ured, and the skin preserved and an-
alyzed for color content. Research
indicates that there is much to learn
from studies of the heredity of these
smaller mammals, was the opinion of
Professor Dice.
