Students' Education Is Aided
By Textbook Lending Library

Serving to aid students in the ex-
pensive task of securing an educa-
tion, the Textbook Lending Library is
approaching the end of its fourth
year of service.
The approximately 800 volumes and
seven slide rules in the library have
been obtained from the income of
an endowment fund, student contri-
butions and unclaimed articles in the
Lost and Found Department. The
~original fund of $2,050 was raised by
gifts from alumni and has remained
substantially intact.
Students in need of this aid are
recommended to the committee by
their academic counsellors, their men-
tors, or by their deans. The first
semester of this year there were 95
such requests which had to go un-
filled because books were not avail-
able.
*ith the end of the semester near,
students are asked to give any books
they can to the library so that this
aid need be denied no one. 'I
Recently repeated requests have
been received for microscopes. The

libraryhasunone of these instruments
but could use a number if they were
made available.
Books may be left at Angell Hall
study hall, where the Textbook Lend-
ing Library is housed, at the General
Library, or at any of the University's
branch libraries.
Books which become obsolete are.
sold and the proceeds are used to pur-
chase books in current demand. Thus
no books not actually used on campus
are kept on hand.
This service of the U.niversity, it
should be pointed out, is not limited
to any schol or college, but is avail-
able for the use of students in any
department. Although the largest
number of books is issued to lower
classmen they are to be found in the
hands of students of all classes in-
cluding graduates.
LANSING, May 28.-OP)-- A hos-
pitalization bill, adopted minutes
before the 61st Legislature adjourned
today, faced possible veto by Governor
Van Wagoner who sees in it a $1,500,-
000 cost to the state.

24 4A DAYYOU
CAN ENJOY HOT WATER
As carefree and automatic as
only ELECTRICITY can
make it, this new hot water
service frees you from even
thinking about heating water.
It requires no attention what-
ever. Ask about it at any
Detroit Edison office-or see
your plumber, electrical deal-
er, hardware or department
store today. The Detroit Edi-
son Company.

Yesterday a young man brought
in hisralbum of Brahms' Piano
Concerto No. 2 and asked if he
might play it in one of our booths.
When he had finished playing it
and was about to leave, we asked
him whether he had ever compar-
ed his recording of the concerto,
which was played by Schnabel,
with the more recent one played
by Horowitz. He completely ignor-
ed the questior. "I have a little
record player attached to my rad-
io," he said, scowling, "and I'm
just wasting my money buying
records like these. I have to walk
down here to your store every time
I want to hear them, or else play
them at a friend's home. I've been
doing the latter, but his sister
seems to have decided it's just an
excuse .to see her. So I'd better
stop buying good music, at least
until I can afford a good phono-
graph to play it on." We had no
easy, perfect so-
lution to offer, ~'-
but we did
make a sug-
gestion. It did
not sound ex-.
citing. He was
completely un-
impressed. He
had tried too
many inexpen-
sive phono-
graphs, he said
to believe that
it was possible .
to get one with
a good tone for DORIS PRICE
only nineteen
dollars and ninety-five cents. But
he rather languidly agreed to let
us try oto change his mind. That
was yesterday morning. Yesterday
afternoon he came back and
bought Beethoven's Emperor Con-
certo and Chopin's Concerto No.
1. What changed his mind about
buying more "good music"? No,
you wouldn't believe it if we told
you. You've read enough adver-
tising to be reasonably immune to
persuasive adjectives. So -won't
you drop in and let this compact,
complete electrical phonograph
speak for itself?

III Summary
Approximately 41 men will be in-
ducted into the army June 16, selec-
tive service officials of Washtenaw
County announced yesterday.
Seven men from Ann Arbor are
listed to be called, but the number
may be increased, or decreased, de-
pending on the number of volunteers
from the county before the date of
induction.
In accordance with the verdict
of the coroner's inquest, Sheriff
John L. Osborn indicated that he
would seek a John Doe warrant for
the killer of Hazel Briggs, Detroit
woman whose cremated body was
found in a dump near Manchester
recently.
Dr. Robert J. Parsons, University
hospital pathologist, who made a
post mortem examination of the
remains of the body, testified at the
inquest that he was unable to de-
termine the exact cause of death.
Previously a skull fracture was
thought to have been the cause,
but it appears to have been the re-
sult of the fire in which the body
was burned.
ASDL Secures Names
In Support Of Convoys
The American Student Defense
League on Campus has secured the
names of over 1,000 Michigan stu-
dents in their petitioning campaign
for convoys.
These names have been sent to tike
offices of Student Defense of Democ-
racy as part of a nation-wide cam-
paign to secure a million signatures.
The petitions state that the signers,
people under thirty-five years of age,
support the use of United States con-
voys in bringing aid to the embattled
democracies.
