success. He was, however, victorious
in Austria, and Roman Catholicism
became its religion. Thus, he said,
the split between Germany and Aus-
tria became wider.
After so m a n y achievements,
"Habsburg imperialism" was defeated
by Frederick the Great, followed by
the revolution in 1848, Dr. Valentin
recalled.
The World War reduced the great
Austrian empire to a mere province--
'!a capital without an empire," the
speaker said. The small republic of
Austria, Valentin explained, had no
economic right to be an independent
country, but the seizure of Austria
by Nazi Germany was by no means
justified. "You can conquer a prov-
ince," he said, "but you cannot con-
quer an idea." The solution to the
Austrian problem, he concluded, must
be found by statesmen, not histori-
ans.

In 1859 Two Parents Thought
Ann Arbour' Was A Woman

English Mother And Father
Sent Note Asking News
Of Wandering Child
Today Ann Arbor is familiar over
the nation as the name of a town;
but in England 80 years ago two
parents thought Ann Arbor was a
woman. This understandable mis-
take caused a letter to be stored
among the papers of the Michiganl
Historical Collections at the Rack-
ham Building and added a tragic
episode to University history.
Letters From Yarcombe
The letter arrived here from "Yar-
combe, near Honiton Devon, Eng-
land" in 1859 addressed "Mrs. Ann
Arbour, Washtenaw County, State
of Michigan, North America." It
tells its own story: "Dear Mrs. Ann
Arbour, You would very much oblige
us by stating every particular about
James Richards if you know he is
living and he should not be lodging
with you. Should he be dead, we
would also very much thank you to
send to us the particulars of his
death, etc., so far as you are able to
do so. Any remuneration for your
trouble in sending to us shall be rea-
dily made. An immediate answer in
the enclosed directed envelope would
very much satisfy us and we are
yours respectively", signed James

ing the Christmas Holidays.

and Sarah Richards. Enclosed was
another letter to the missing son:
Writes H~er SonI.
"Dear Son, Not receiving any let-'
ter from you for more than, threeE
years we naturally conclude some-
thing must be wrong; consequently
are in great anxiety of mind about
you; and what makes us more so
is an account in a newspaper of one
James Richards and others starving
to death on their return from the
gold diggings, having been unsuc-
cessful there; if such. should be the
case we cannot hear from you, if
otherwise we beg you write an an-
swer immediately stating all par-
ticulars. As to ourselves we are all
about the same as when we last
wrote. Further particulars shall be
sent if you are still living. Fearing
very much all cannot be right, we
remain in great distress of mind,
Dear son, Yours very affectionately,
James and Sarah Richards". The
'enclosed directed envelope' men-
tioned is still appended to the letter.
Small Girl Would Like
To Play 'The Victors'
Albert E. Reichert, '17, Mount Ver-
non, N.Y., has a daughter, "12 years
old and headed for Michigan."
In a letter received by the Alumni
Association here, Reichert revealed
his daughter's already budding loyal-
ty to his alma mater: She had con-I
vinced the bandmaster of the local
high school that "The Victors" would
be just the song for the band to play
next May! So the letter asked how
and where three different band ar-
rangements of the march could be
obtained.
"Gone With he Wind" leads fresh-
man book preferences for the second

A new national network is being
formed by Elliott Roosevelt. Every
key city will have an outlet over the
transcontinental hook-up. Detroit's
station WJBK will be affiliated, and
they have already asked us to submit
programs for feeding through the new
line. So our Michigan campus stu-
dios will now be aired over another
network. Our associated Broadcast-
ing Systemis include at the nonce
the NBC Red, Columbia and Mutual
hook-ups.
New Detroit Studios -
Then Prof. Waldo Abbot announces
that plans are progressing for "Mi-.
cigan University of the Air" studios
in Detroit's upcoming Rackham Me-
morial Building. These studios will
mark another stride in expanding the
University Broadcasting Service, and
will affiliate with the same group
of stations the campus does.
Game For Christmas Week
After Stan Swinton, '40, and Mel
Fineberg, '40, finish sportcasting the
weekly "Michigan Fan Fare" over
WMBC at 2:45 p.m., the fourth
"Game of the Week" goes through
WJR at 3:30. Then Jack Silcott,
Grad., Johnny Gelder, '40, and your
columnist, in fine festive spirit, will
try contestants Maggy Soenksen,
Grad., Cecil Beglinger, Grad., Ted
Mattson, '41, and Stan Swinton in
Christmas Carol questioning. Dick
Slade, '40, will aid and abett as well
as announce.
The most amusing air moment of
late was Duane Nelson's in introduc-
ing someone "to sing 'Come Ye Unto
Jesus' with the aid of the studio
quartet."
