Old Account Books
A colletion ofaccount books of a
general store in Marshall, Mich.,
covering a period from 1836 to 1926
reecntly was presented to the Univer-
sity Historical Collections by Mrs.
Edgar Brewer and Mrs. C. E. Gauss
The account books are those of the
store maintained by Chauncey M.
Brewer and his son Edgar and are,
according to Henry M. Brown of the
Collections, the most complete set of
books covering so long a period known
to exist in Michigan.
According to Mr. Brown, entries
made in the ledgers enable historians
to trace social developments in the
town, through showing what the
people of the time needed and bought.
Historians can trace, through book
entries, the trend of the farmer away
from self-suficiency toward an exis-
tence more closely integrated with
the rest of society.

Aid At Health Ag'encies
University students interested in
social service work have found meth-,
ods of applying their interest through
the efforts of the Social Service De-
partment of the Student Religious As-
sociation which has placed 20 stu-
dents in volunteer jobs this year.
In response to a :demand of Ann
Arbor agencies, students have been
supplied to do office work, or act as
group leaders, dramatic supervisors
or athletic directors. These jobs are
not limited to those taking sociology
courses, but are open to all interested
The Social Service Department has
also extended its aid to /students in
the hospital or Health Service. They
are visited regularly by volunteer
workers who run errands, deliver mes-
sages, and help them in other ways.
In an effort to acquaint students
with problems of community life and
the steps taken toward their solution,
this department has sponsored two
Reconciliation trips this year. Police
headquarters, courts, jails and com-
munity houses in Detroit and Ann Ar-
bor were visited where explanatory
talks were made to the group.

History Of Student Publications
By NORMAN A. SCHORR
Fraternity-independent rivalries, a
fire and private journalistic ventures
have all played interesting roles in,
the history and development of stu-
dent publications at the University,
which today include the Michigan-
ensian, Daily, Gargoyle, Technic, De-
signer and the newest member in the

The Palladium, a senior yearbook
published by the nine oldest frater-
nities is the oldest publication on rec-
ord, dating from 1858. With photo-
graphs and class history it continued
until 1896 as a leading campus organ.
The independents published a sen-
,ior yearbook, the Castalian, for five
years, beginning in 1866. Unable to
keep up with Palladium, they were
forced to suspend publication until
Castalian revived that year to com-
pete with the Palladium, now met
with much greater success, surpassing
Palladium in campus popularity. In
1896, a fire in the engraving house
made publication of Castalian impos-
sible and a merger with Palladium ex-
pedient for both factions.
,Inthat year, the compromise sen-
ior yearbook, Michiganensian, made
its first appearance and fraternity
men and independents smoked the
The weekly University Chronicle led
the way in student news publications
in 1867. In 1869 it was united with
the University magazine to form the
Chronicle, a weekly newsmagazine
which was controlled and run by fra-
ternities until 1890.
The Argonaut, another fraternity-
controlled weekly w s published from
1882-1890, when an independents'
publication forced the competing fra-
ternity ventures into combination.
The result, the Chronicle-Argonaut,
lasted for one year now that the
newly-formed Michigan Daily was in
The Inlander is the first literary
