Exhibit Shown Still Bright, Prof. Cissel Declares fore He Chose To Run

At LibraryNow

By JAMES MacDONALD
A cross-section of the collection of
5>{£modern fine printing owned by the
General Library has been arranged asI
the library's first exhibit by Ella M.
Hymans, curator of rare books. The.
display is located in the first floor
cases where it will remain for a'
month.
The purpose of the exhibit, Missl
Hymans explains, is to acquaint new
students with the collections in rare
books of which this is the most out-
standing. It also acknowledges a
general trend towards increased ac-
tivity in the art of fine printing.
Cards accompanying the books trace
the history of a modern revival of
artistic printing.
William Morris, an Englishman, led
the revival and is considered one of
the best of the early modern printers.
His "Kelmscott Chaucer" and "Cax-
c, ton's Golden Legend" are his most
outstanding. Morris is noted for hisI
7 heavy type face and extensive useI
of decorations on the page.
In direct contrast to Morris' work
is that of Thomas James Cobden and
his noted Dove's Press of Hammer-
smith, London, established in 1901.'

TRY, TRY AGAIN might well be
the slogan of John McAllister, 23-

a failure of his first break in August.

Many universities in America and
England have outstanding presses.
Of these there are exhibited books
from Harvard, Yale, Oxford, and
Cambridge. Their output consists of
university publications and other
works in individual styles.
Bruce Rogers, Miss Hymans de-
clares, is America's most noted de-
signer and typographer. Beginning
in 1896 his work has been prolific
as well as outstanding, according to
information in the show cases, one
being his renowned large book, "Es-
says of Montaigne." Another of
America's contributions to the art
are the works of Frederick and Ber-
tha Goudy.
Of local interest, also, is a private
edition in display of President Ruth-
ven's book, "A Naturalist in a Uni-
versity Museum,"

it is essential that such a survey.
be made," continued Professor Cis-
sel, "for without it nothing definite
can be decided about the bridge."
"It is logical to believe," Professor
Cissel declared, that the bridge would
be a marked success. It would solvel
the problem of transportation across
the straits which is daily becoming
more acute and which State Highway
Commissioner Van Wagoner declares
the ferry system can never handle."
As a vacation land the Upper Pen-
insula is almost inaccessible during
the holidays as is evidenced by the
eight hour waits for the ferries which
are common on such days as the
Fourth of July or Labor Day, he
said.
As far as feasibility of construction
goes, said Professor Cissel, every con-
dition seems most favorable. Pre-
liminary borings have shown excel-
lent support for such a bridge at
Point St. Ignace and while the Straits
are about a mile and a quarter wider
here than at the narrowest point, the
length of five and a quarter miles
is not unusual, and the place seems
most satisfactory, he said.
To construct a combined railway-
highway bridge, Professor Cissel
stated, would cost approximately 32
to 35 million dollars. A highway
bridge alone would cost about 25 mil-1
lion dollars, Professor Cissel con-
tinued, and this type is more serious-
ly contemplated. Rather than the

from the co-op's property at that date
were $51.50.
It was decided at the Sept. 30 meet-
ing to pay $320 to four students who
spent part of the summer organizing
the move of the co-op from Lane Hall
to the present cite, at the former lo-
cation of Chubbs'.
A 20 per cent reduction for cleaning
and pressing work will be given to
members of the Wolverine by an
Ann Arbor firm, the board has an-
nounced.
