Relic Of Lee's Defeat
Given Collection In 1867
Among donations to the collection
of the Department of Ethnology and
Relics of the University in 1867 was
a piece of root from the apple tree
beneath which Lee surrendered to
Grant, according to the President's
Report of that year.
Also listed as gifts to the collec-
tion are a "Revolutionary canteen,"
an Arab sandal and a "Meerschaum
taken' from the pocket of a rebel
soldier at the battlefield of Bull Run."

Shattuck was influential in bring-
ing about the innovations it con-
tained. This census and those of
subsequent years have required the
listing of at least names, ages and
birthplaces of all individuals.
In addition to his work with the
census, Doctor Robbins said, Shat-
tuck was a member of the Concord
school board, reorganizing the town
schools and instituting a system of
school reports which was subsequent-
ly adopted by the legislaturefor the
entire state.
Local history held Shattuck's at-
tention for a long time, as did gene-
alogy, Doctor Robbins continued.
This latter interest, he pointed out,
led easily into work with census-

White, blue and yellow cards will
be filled out by students in the Col-
lege of Engineering next week giv-
ing their opinion of the courses they
are taking and the instructors that
teach them.
Blue cards will be filled out if a
lecture section accompanies the quiz
section in a course and the yellow
cards will be used if laboratory work
is required in addition.
Prof. Edwin M. Baker, chairman of
the committee on coordination and
teaching, is conducting this question-
naire which is designed to evaluate
and improve the courses in the school.
It will be modeled after the one used
last year which, according to Profes-
sor Baker, did much to help both
students and members of th faculty.
Students are expected to give their
opinions on the degree of difficulty of
the courses they are taking, the inter-
est and enjoyability of the subject,
the quality of teaching and the quality
of the text used.
In addition students will express
their views on the correlation of their
lecture, quiz and laboratory sections,
state the number of hours spent work-
ing in the course both in class and
out and make any other definite sug-
gestions for improving the work.

The freshman student assistant
plan that is to be instituted here
for 200 freshman women at Jordan
Hall in September is modeled after
the one at Miami University, Miami,
The system at Miami was inau-
gurated in 1929 with one all-fresh-
man dormitory; the number has
since increased to four. Prior to this
new system, the freshmen lived in
cottages similar to League houses
here. The plan of having faculty
advisers and women student coun-
sellors appointed by the advisers
was formulated to better initiate
freshmen into college life.
Faculty advisers are chosen by the
deans of the various schools. These
advisers live in the dormitories with
the girls as do the social directors
here. They, in turn, together with
the outgoing counsellors, appoint
Country's Papers
To Print Pictures
Of 1200 Graduates
More than 1,200 pictures of seniors
in the University will appear in news-
papers throughout the country as the
result of work now being done by the
Bureau of Alumni Relations.
Cuts for printing the pictures and
mats for the manufacture of cuts are
being mailed to all state newspapers,
featuring seniors whose pictures will
appear in the 1940 edition of The En-
sian. More than 600 of these have
already been issued by the Bureau.
Glossy prints of photographs of
more than 600 outstate seniors are
being sent to papers in their home
towns. These, said Donald K. An-
derson, assistant director of the Bur-
eau, are being mailed at the request
of editors of the papers.
This work, Anderson commented,

from the outgoing counsellor staff.
Selection of the counsellors from
the girls who are already living in
the dormitory is begun at the begin-
ning of the second semester. A "B"
average is preferred; good grades,
however, are not the deciding factor.
Appointment as counsellor during

highest honors a freshman girl can
receive at Miami University. There
is no remuneration, but the girls

After the counsellors have been
chosen, they are given an intensive
training course, and plans for the
coming year are made. The various
committees which conduct the ac-

to get as many freshman girls work-
ing with them as possible.
In September the counsellors are
on hand to greet the freshmen upon
their arrival and make them feel at
