Muehl Takes
Second Prize
For Address
Michigan Student Awarded
$50 By Oratory League
At Minnesota Contest
William Muehl, '41, was awarded
second place and $50 for his oration,
"The Empires Within," in the 50th
annual Northern Oratorical League
Contest held Friday at the Univer-
sity of Minnesota.
Dwight Croessmann of Northwest-
ern took the $100 first prize for his
oration, "Whatsoever Things Are
True," which deals with the frater-
nity man and his position in world
affairs. Raymond S. Beard of
Western Reserve placed third with
his address which urged condemna-
tion of cheap literature and was en-
titled, "This Filth Must Go." Muehl's
speech concerned the hostility be-
tween various classes in America.
The three other schools in the
League are the University of Iowa,
the University of Wisconsin, and the
University of Minnesota. Wisconsin
took first place last year.
The contests are judged by coaches
of the competing orators, each coach
ratng; all contestants except his own.
Prof. Louis M. Eich of the speech
department accompanied Muehl to
Minneapolis.

addition to the University collection,
will be presented to the public at

The exhibition is composed of 144
examples of fine weaving found in
Egypt andassembled overbmany
years by the late Mr. Elsberg of
New York City, a noted collector of
ancient Near Eastern, European and
Peruvian textiles.
The textiles were selected to illus-
trate the history of the art of weav-
ing in Egypt from the third or fourth
centuries A.D., Hellenistic examples,
to later Coptic cloths, through the
transition period, showing the grad-
ual change in taste after the Arab
conquest of Egypt in 641 A.D. to a
new style of decoration which be-

came popular under the lFatinid
dynasty.

Two of the pieces included in the textile in the Islamic group is con-
collection are inscribed with the sidered of particular interest, be-
I cause the inscription maintains that
name of the Abbasid Caliph al-Mog- it was made in Persia at the town
tadir and are dated A.D. 917 and of Sabur. A few of the group, how-
925. The Islamic textiles were prob- ever, were evidently found in graves
ably found in the ruins of Fostat, in the Fayoum.

You can rent every room in your house to summer students.
An exceptionally large registration is expected this summer; thousands will
be seeking rooms. And notwithstanding the competition of dressy dormi-
tories and dolled-up rooming houses, there is one SURE way to attract a full
quota to YOUR HOUSE:
PUT COLORFUL FOX AWNINGS
ON ALL YOUR SUNNY WINDOWS
By doing so, you add oodles of oomph to the outside, and completely cool
comfort to the inside of the house.
And the Cost? Clad you asked! An awning for the average small window,
costs but $6.00 or so. Spread over a ten-week rental-period, the COST
WOULD BE REPAID IN A SINGLE SUMMER, by adding only 60c per week
per window to the price. We think this would be getting your investment
back pretty fast-but other renters of awninged rooms will be asking much
more for theirs. And at the price, the extra comfort is decidedly inexpensive.
But Remember; FOX Awnings last, not one year or two
years, but, with care, from eight to ten years. After the
first year or two, all extra income would be profit for
the house.
