Geographically the automotive cen-

with that industry. The largest and'
most important of these is the King
Started 18 years ago by H. H. Seeley
end Prof. Horace Kjjng of the College
of Engineering the firm originally
produced a hydrostatic gas gauge
which Professor King had developed.
Its growth since that time has been
rapid; at the present time it em-
ploys 1,200 persons, two thirds of that
number being women.
Drawing its workers mainly from
this city with some nearby small
towns contributing a share, Ann Ar-
bor is the shopping center where the
firm's payroll is chiefly spent. Local
merchants, one factory official point-
ed out,. can tell immediately by the
volume of their business whether the
plant is operating at capacity or not.
At the present time 15- Michigan
graduates are employed by King
Seeley. Employment of students at-
tending Michigan is negligible, hav-
ing proven unsatisfactory. The com-

search through the University but
most of it is accomplished by its own

Because "a company which does
not expand must shrink," King Seeley

Airey-a growth considered import-
ant to the city of Ann Arbor by those
who study its urban function.

America has much to learn from
the more progressive European mu-
seums in regard to modern methods
of exhibition, according to Mr. Fred-
rick R. Matson, research assistant in
the Museum of Anthropology.
Mr. Matson has spent the last seven
months studying comparative ma-
terial in .the, outstanding museums, of
Europe. He visited Palestine, Greece,
Rome, Florence, Stockholm, Berlin,
Lcndon and Paris. He found the most
modern methods of display in use in
Stolckholm where a new technical
museum has just been completed. In-
direct lighting has entirely replaced
daylight in these exhibit rooms and
thus the fading of valuable material
has been prevented. Another feature
of this museum described by Mr.
Matson is an extremely large elevator
which is used as a lecture room.
Berlin museums are using cases
made entirely of glass sheets glued
together without steel or wood rein-
forcements, Mr. Matson said. He also
described a Munich museum display-
ing marionette silhouettes -and an-
other Continental museum in which
the rooms are painted in various col-
ors to blend and contrast with the ex-
Many museums are making a defi-
nite attempt to gain the interest of
local citizens and to solicit more than
just the international tourist trade.
according to Mr. Matson, who said
that extensive use is also being made
of study collections particularly to aid
students rather than the public in

Difficulties of understanding manyD

interpreters and taken to the zooR s
