Organization Of 670
Ann Arbor Families
The growth of the Ann Arbor Co-
operative Society from a small coalI
buying club, to an incorporated co-
operative and finally to an organiza-
tion with a membership of 670 fam-
ilies has required only five years,
according to A. K. Stevens of the
English department, publicity direc-
tor for the Society.f
The Society, run on the Rochdale
principles of cooperation, supplies its
members with coal, gasoline, dry
cleaning service, groceries, meats,
vegetables, a milk route, men's cloth-
ing, hardware, cosmetics and maga-
zine subscriptions. The prices on
these articles are not lower than the
prevailing scale, but surplus savings
are returned to members as dividends.
Membership Open To All
The cooperative is a non-profit or-
ganization run for the benefit of its
consumers. Membership is open to
anyone regardless of race, religion or
politics. The organization is com-
pletely controlled by its "nembership.
All matters of policy are referred to
a general meeting at which every'
member has one vote regardless of
the amount of his purchases. Divi-
dends, however, are issued in propor-
tion to the money spent by each mem-'
The Cooperative Society feels that
it is now securely established, said
Mr. Stevens, since the membership
has recently been increased by 40
and a four per cent dividend was de-
clared for the period of January to
June. The cooperative has no longer
any indebtedness and is planning tof
expand its store in larger quarters.
Education Plans
Educational activities are stressed
by the Society since members feel
that such an organization can not
succeed if its basic principles are not
understood, Mr. Stevens explained. In
this connection a weekly series of
talks will be given by leaders of the
organization on the internal prob-
lems of a cooperative. Another se-
ries which will contrast the coopera-
tive plan with Socialism, Commun-

the Townsend plan will also be spon-!
sored by the Society.
A Credit Union, a form of co-
operative banking, is also maintained
by this organization. Run also on
the Rochdale principle, the Union is
able to make loans to its members at
one third of the prevailing rate and
to pay dividends of from four to six
per cent.
Museums Prepare
Exhibition Of Ducks
To Guide Hunters
The open season for duck hunting
began Saturday, and the weekend
will see the roads lined with hunters
bound for their favorite duck haunts.,
But all ducks are not legitimate
prey. Certain species which are rap-
idly vanishing are protected. So, as a
boon to prospective hunters, the
University Museums have prepared
an exhibit on the third floor of the
Museums Building, showing which
duck's are wholly protected, which
partially protected, and which not at
Year-Round Exhibit
Although the realistically mounted
ducks are a year round exhibit, red
labels indicating which species are
wholly or partially protected have
been added.
The wood duck, which is easily
identifiablein flight by the length
of its tail, and the swan are the only
ones completely protected.
Males And Females Shown
Last year, several other varieties of
ducks, such as the buffle-head were
completely protected, but because it,
is so difficult to tell the difference
while the birds are in flight, many
were shot anyway, and then discard-
ed by the hunter for fear of being
To avoid this waste, the laws have
been amended this year so that the.
hunter can shoot three birds in the
four protected species.
The exhibit in the museums show
both the male and female of the va-
rious species.

It seems that the high schools were
