Most of the delinquencies occur
n the rural areas of the north. The'
land in most cases consists of aban-
doned mines and former timber land.
If the Conservation Department
deeds this land to the community,
all the mineral rights over gravel,
rock deposits and oil and gas still
belong to the state.

Opinions of students in the College
of Engineering on their instructors
and courses will be received this week
by Prof. Edwin M. Baker, chairman
of the committee on coordination and
teaching, in order to evaluate and
improve the courses taught in the
.school.
The questionnaire which will be
given is based upon the one used
last year which, according to Profes-
sor Baker, did much to help both
students and members of the faculty.
Among the things students will rate
are the degree of difficulty of the
course, the interest or enjoyability,
the quality of teaching and the qual-
ity of the text used.
Students will also give their views
on the correlation of work in their
lecture, laboratory and quiz sections
and make any definite comments re-
garding the course or their ratings.
In addition they are expected to give
their class, their average, and the
total number of hours spent on each
subject.
Coffee Hour To Be Held
Last of the graduate coffee hours
for this semester will take place
from 4 to 6 p.m. Tuesday in the
West Conference Room of the Rack-
ham Building, according to an an-
nouncement by Jean Brown, Grad.,
chairman of the coffee hour com-
mittee.

courses for credit will be offered to
both men and women students at the
geography summer camp, according
to Prof. Kenneth C. McMurry, chair-f
man of the department.
The work of the camp consists of
learning and using the various tech-
niques of field mapping with some
work in the local courthouses on
:wnership and tax records. Students
are given practise in oil and cover
mapping, conversation methods and
techniques used in land utilization
and investigation work, Professor Mc-
Murry added. Two regular courses
and opportunities for adyanced in-
struction are offered.
The camp is located in Wilderness
State Park on the shores of the
straits of Mackinac. The Park is one
of the few remaining wilderness areas
in the state and is closed to auto-
mobiles beyond the camp. The build-
ings were originally built to accommo-
date a CCC group and have been
loaned to the University by state offi-
cials. Included in the site are a
mess hall, kitchen, recreation room,
library, nen's and women's bunk-
houses and faculty quarters.

Sink Judges Value Of Library

Many Famous Autographs
Add To Rarity Of Books
In Musician's Collection
By THOMAS GIES
Dr. Charles A. Sink, President of
the School of Music. is the owner
of one of the most unusual libraries
in the world, probably the only one
of its kind.
Instead of collecting a group of his
avcrite classics, Dr. Sink gathers
'gooks valuable not in themselves, but
whose rarity lies in their former own-
ers. Dr. Sink has a library of about
400 books autographed by famous

miral Byrd. and including most of the
crtists who have appeared in Choral
jiion Concerts and the May Festival
~ ries. in the list can be seen the
names of pract icaliy euccry renowned
_r tist of the otdeae
Many of these books have inter-
esting backgrounds, such as the vol-
ume presented by Paderewski. It is
from a set of books on the history
of London given the artist by Lord
Nordcliff about 1900. Only a limit-
ed number of sets were printed, after
which Nordcliff had the plates de-
stroyed.
Dr. Sink especially prizes a biogra-
p1 y of Caruso, the Italian tenor, This
book originally belonged to a relative
of President Haven, which was put
on the market following the relative's
suicide after the 1929 market crash.
When an invitation was sent to
Henry Ford for an autographed copy
of one of his favorite books, he com-
plied with a copy of his autobiogra-
phy.
There are too many others to men-
tion, such as the copy sent by John
Barbirolli containing the auto-
graphs of each member of the New
York Philharmonic Orchestra, a legal,
volume autographed by each mem-
ber of the Michigan Supreme Court
when Dr. Sink was a member of the
legislature, and a book on the Rus-
sian Ballet, signed by each member
of the Monte Carlo Ballet.
One of Ann Arbor's local merch-
ants is also a contributor to the Sink
library. When Charley Preketes left
for a trip to his homeland, Greece,
Dr. Sink asked him to bring back a
book from one of the ancient col-
lections. One of the most unique
pieces in the entire group was pre-
sented by Mr. Preketes.
