flame, rests on a pile of books, thus
denoting knowledge. On either side
of the column stands a winged figure

John Monteith Was
Michigan's First
Pesgidet In 1817
(Material for this series has been
furnished by Dr. Frank E. Robbins,
Assistant to the President.)
When the tenth anniversary of
President Ruthven's service as head
of the University is observed on Oct.
27, the name of John Monteith, a
Pi'6destai t preacher of pedagogical
fhaings, will be sure to be mentioned.
For, although few Michigan men
acid women know it, the Rev. Mr.
Monteith was Michigan's first presi-
dlent.
Named President
it was on Aug. 26, 1817 that, by
ant of the Governor and Judges of
the Mliichigan Territory, the Catho-
lepistemiad, or University of Michi-
gania, came into 'being. And on that
dame day Rev. Monteith was selected
to be (1) its president and (2) holder
of several of its professorial chairs
Named as vice-president, as well as
the other composite professor, was
Father Gabriel Richard, the Rector
of 9t. Anne's Romnan Catholic Church
in Detroit.
k"v. Monteith had come to De-
troit' by boat and horseback, at the
age of 27, toorganize the First Protes-
tant Society. Born of Scotch parents
on Aug. 5, 11788 in Gettysburg, Pa.,
he had attended Jefferson College
(now Washington and Jefferson) and
the Presbyterian theological seminary
in Princeton, N.J.
School'sNName Changed
Four years after he became presi-
dent another territorial act changed
his 'school's name to the University

of Michigan and placed its adminis-
tration under the control of a board
of trustees. Rev. Monteith was made
one of the first trustees, but left
Michigan to become Professor of An-
cient Languages at Hamilton Col-
lege.
Later he returned to the ministry,
moving to Elyria, 0., where he took
part in the anti-slavery movement,
and then to Blissfield, Mich., as a
member of the Home Missionary
Service. He died in Elyria on April
5, 1868.

These three men, shown in a Scottish hospital, are German fliers who participated in one of the raids on
the Firth of Forth but who didn't go back to a hero's welcome. Shot down during the raid, all were wounded.
The picture was radioed from London to New York.

Alumnus Dies
in Plane Crash
Hulsman Is Killed Testing
High Speed Craft
A crash of undetermined cause
killed alumnus Herbert W. Hulsman
last Saturday at the flight testing
field of the Republic Aircraft Corp.,
Farmingdale, N.Y.
Hulsman was testing a modern
high-speed pursuit plane when the
crash occurred. He was 32 years
old. He was buried Tuesday in Chi-
cago, with military honors, naval of-
ficers acting as pallbearers.
Hulsman was born in Chicago, and
received undergraduate training there
at Crabe Junior College and Lewis
Institute of Technology, from which
he received his B.S. degree in me-
chianical engineering in 1931. He was
a member of Iota Alpha, engineering
honor society. He studied in Ann
Arbor for his master's degree in 1932
and 1933, but failed in this objective
because of one C grade. This failure,
according to Prof. Felix W. Pawlow-
ski of the engineering school, made
a profound impression on him for
the rest of his life.
He then entered the Navy as a fly-
ing cadet, training at Pensacofa, Fla.,
for one year.
His Navy experience later gained
him a post as test flyer and research
man with the Farmingdale concern.
In accepting this position, Profes-
sor Pawlowski explained, Hulsman
thought that he would vindicate his
failure to obtain a master's degree.
Professor Pawlowski, who knew Huls-
man well while he was on campus,
said that the young man's two great
ambitions were to become a great
flyer and to obtain a master~s degree.
Hulsman is the eighth victim of a
flying accident among the Umver-
sity's aeronautical almuni. Six have
perished. in flight-testing work, one
died while still training with the
Army and another was killed in a
collision in the air.
Rabinowitz To Speak
Dr. Isaac Rabinowitz, director of
the Hillel Foundation, will give a talk
on "Jews in the Line of Fire" at 11
a.m. tomorrow at the Foundation
during the regular Sunday morning
Reform Services, discussing the po-
sition of Jews in the European war
zone.

Syrian Educator To Talk
At International Center
Prof. Habib Kurani, registrar and
a member of the comparative educa-
tion department of the American
University at Beirut, Syria, will dis-
cuss "Some Observations on Com-
parative Education" at 7 p.m. tomor-
row in the International Center.
Professor Kurani, who will speak
following the weekly Center Sunday
Supper, is studying counseling sys-
tems and other administrative mleth-
ods at the University under a special
post-doctoral fellowship.
Professor Kurani was to have spok-
en on Nov. 26, but agreed to move up
the date of his apperance so that the
Center might hear Dr. Edgar Fisher,
assistant directorrof the Institute of
International Education, on Nov. 26.
