Faculty Plans I
"Michigan Day'
Discusses Banquet Next,
Year And Broadcast
Plans for a nation-wide alumni
celebration of "Michigan Day" March
18, 1939, the 102nd anniversary of]
the Ordinance of 183'7 creating the
Board of Regents, are being discussed
by a newly organized committee un-
der Prof. Carl G. Brandt, chairman
of the English department in the Col-
lege of Engineering.
The committee hopes that radio
timle may be allotted for the celebra-
tion and that the broadcast originat-
ing from a banquet here would be na-
tional in scope. Possible entertain-
rnent may be furnished in the form
of dramatic sketches, a band recital
and a few songs by the glee club. The
program will be "in keeping with'the
idea of a birthday party," Professor
Brandt said.
Others appointed to the committee
by President Ruthven are Prof. Waldo
A. Abbot, director of broadcasting,
Prof. Robert B. Hall of the geography
department, Prof. Herbert A. Ken-
yon, director of the Lydia Mendels-
sohn theatre, Dr. Charles A. Sink,
president of the School of Music, and
T. Hawley Tapping, general alumni
Survey Lists Rural
Problen Children
Rural schools reported nearly twice
as many problem children as schools
in small cities and towns according
to a survey conducted by University
sociologists in Branch county recent-
Of 3,363 children enrolled in the
schools covered by the survey, 401, or
11.9 per cent, were listed by their
teachers as problem children. Of 1,109
children in country schools, 191, or
17.2 per cent were listed as "malad-
justed." In the urban schools, 210,
or 9.3 per cent, of 2,254 boys and girls
were problem cases.
During the course of the survey,
Charles D. Braidwood, research fel-
low of the Michigan Child Guidance
Institute of the University, collected
reports from 126 of Branch county's
195 school teachers.
Election Costs Lower
The average cost per vote to Ann
Arbor this election was 3.6 cents low-
er than the cost of the September
balloting, and .1 cent lower than
that of the November, 1936 election,
it was r6vealed yesterday. The cost
is figured on the basis of wages for
clerks hired.

Perfect Specimen
Of Petrified Tree
Found By Botanist
What may prove to be 'a perfect
specimen of a petrified tree trunk of
the Pennsylvania Age was found by
Dr. Chester A. Arnold of the botany
department while searching for bot-
anical relics near South Park, Colo-
rado last summer.
The material in the valley near
South Park does not contain any
coal, but is at the bottom of a thick
black shale region. Solidified rocks
which provide specimens for the
botanists are found strewn over the
surface of the valley which is about
100 miles wide. This valley was be-
lieved to have been swamp region at
one time with hot springs running
into it which carried in mineral mat-
ter. This mineral matter penetrated
the plant cells and crystallized, leav-
ing the fossil structure.
Severe rain and hail storms were
encountered on the trip of Dr. Arnold
into this region. The mornings were
beautiful, but by noon dark clouds
surrounded the mountain peaks, and
in the early afternoon, collecting was
over. The rains reached flood stage
several times during his stay.
Dr. Arnold found the specimen
some distance from an open road in
the midst of an area strewn with t
debris from a recent flood. In this !
circumstance, he had to carry the
75 pound rock on his back to the car.
While the pith and phloem, softer I
part of the tree found in the center
and outside o? the trunk, have been
rotted away, cells of the xylem or
main portion of the trunk may be
distinctly seen under a microscope.
"This discovery is unusual," said
Dr. Arnold, "first because very little
plant material of the Pennsylvania
Age has come from the western states,
and second, it is rarely that we find
petrified material of that age in such
