Rare Collection
Of Hauptmann 's
Plays Displayed
One of the outstanding collections;
of the works of Gerhardt Haupt-
mann. German playwright, is being
exhibited in the show-cases in the
main library.
Prof. Fred B. Wahr of the Germanr
department is the owner of the col-l
lection. It is distinguished becauseE
'it includes every 'first edition ofj
Hauptmann and several rare editions.
One is illustrated with wood cuts by
Gordon Craig, considered one of the
best examples of book workmanship
in modern times. Hauptmann's'
translation of "Hamlet" is displayed,
and there are several etchings andl
engravings of the playwright. !
Of particular interest is an originalj
drawing of the bookplate used in Pro-j
fessor Water's collection, which was
done in 1925 by Halfey Davidson, '25.
Copies are highly prized by German
collectors, and Hauptmann himself
has asked for the drawing.j
The collection is being displayed in
conjunction with a banquet at the
League Monday night on the occa-
sion of Hauptmann's 75th birthday.
At the banquet 70 Hauptmann admir-
ers voted to establish a society for
the study of his works, and Dr.;
Wahr was chosen president. This
%Gerhardt Hauptmann Society will
meet three times a year to discuss his

One or two of the sisters "have a'
little doubt," Dr. Dafoe said, because'
last Christmas they pulled at Santa's'
whiskers, and they came off. The
quints thought Santa looked more
familiar without his beard.

sent certificates showing that they
have had negative reactions to ven-I
ereal disease tests. Last Friday thev
state health department announced1
a program for the free distribution;
of drugs to combat syphilis to physi-t
cians throughout the state.N
"Such legislation is the result of a
growing awareness by the publicr
that veneral disease problems can bea
settled by cooperation with medical I
specialists," Professor Fuller said,
"but there is no groundswell of pub-E
lic opinion demanding a state pro-
gram. The public so far is mainlyc
breaking down the old taboos andi
reticence on discussing venereal dis-t
ease questions. Where formerly dis-c
cussion was only undertaken in scien-
tific and medical groups, now it goes
on in schools and is being more]
frankly received by the public as a
"Leaders in the state legislation
are mainly social workers, medicalk
men, and public health men, workingv
with the help of educators and pro-4

The radio question presents itsa

clared, because radio discussion of

they should be a successful step to-
ward meeting present disease prob-
lems. They will cut down the disease
among married persons and will help
to bring people face to face with
veneral disease questions.
Many people will probably obtain
marriage licenses in other states in
an effort to avoid the examination,
Professor Fuller stated, mainly from
a feeling that their personal rights
are being infringed. This was the re- f
sult of first requirements for vac-
cination, but in this case public opin-
ion has gradually come to accept
these requirements as needed and
Foresee Early Settlement

Manchester and Scio township

complaints from Howard L. Preston,

trator, who warned that relief would
be stopped in their townships Dec. 1
unless deductions in the payment of
ERA bills is explained.

usual brittleness it was necessary to twice
recast it. Contrary to general opinion the.
bell did not crack while pealing forth the
glad tidings of Independence but while toll-
ing a knell for the death of Chief Justice
Marshall in 1835.
The young nation of 1781 was founded
on individual initiative and endeavor. It
has become the world's most prosperous
country by adhering to this principle that
the Liberty Bell heralded from its brazen
throat one hundred and sixty years ago.

T HE MICHIGAN DAILY believes that in-
dividual initiative and effort as coordi-
nated by its heads is the cornerstone of effi-
cient service. It seeks to apply wherever
possible individual attention to the needs
of its readers and advertisers.
Since 1890 The Daily has been an integral
part of the University life. In that year
it became a student publication under the
Board in Control of Student Publications.
'Its size and prosperity has grown with that
of the University and Town until today it
stands as one of the best college papers in
the country. The Daily is proud of its
University, proud of its Town, and cher-
ishes the esteem in which it is held.
The Michigan Daily invites an inspection
of the unusual facilities it offers in the way
of news and advertising.
