Central depot this morning, railroad
freight officials said. the regular meeting.

Employes of the Buildings and
Grounds department are building a
shed to house the new mirror, since
it is too large to tit into the present
observatory. It is 971/4 inches in di-
ameter, weighing 10,500 pounds, and
is exceeded in size only by the 100-
inch telescope at Mt. WilsontObserv-
atory and the 200-inch telescope at
Mt. Palomar, Calif.
University authorities had hoped
to have a new observatory built to
house the telescope, but $500,000 is
needed to erectbthe structure. A site
has already been chosen at Base
Lake, northwest of here. The con-
struction of the telescope was fi-
nanced by a bequest.

composer of note, he has written
several symphonies, three operas,
much chamber music and a variety
of songs and vocal choruses. As a
conductor he spent long terms with
the Moscow Private Opera and the
Moscow Symphony Orchestra. He
was once offered the conductorship of
the Boston Symphony.
F Pour pianos go along wlien Mr.
Rachmaninoff starts on one of his
lengthy American tours. Not all

Cooperatives' Rise
Due To Competition
Cooperatives in the United States
now have 2,000,000 members, having
made a 13 per cent increase in the{
past 10 years, Joseph W. Mundus, of
Ann Arbor, past president of the state
association of insurance agents, told
the local Lions Club Monday.
"Unfair competition" was respon-
sible for the growth of cooperatives,1
Mr. Mundus said, pointing out that
they are provided with government
aid and are eligible for certain tax
exemptions. Great Britain and Swed-
en, where cooperatives have made
much more progress' than in this
country, do not grant such exemp-
tions, he added.
Sixty cooperatives operating in the
middle west in 1935 showed a profit
of $727,000, he declared, representing
a net gain of 4.13 per cent.
