Distinguished Scholars
Have Delivered Talks
Politieianis, Poets, Explorers Are But Few
Of Many Brought To Ann Arbor
By BILL BAKER{
Politicians, poets, explorers and an anthropologist who is an authority'
on primitive jitterbugs-these are but a few of the famous-and unusual--
persons who have delivered University lectures on the campus during the
last 30 years.
Since 1911-12 the University budget has carried an account "for the
purpose of securing lectures by distinguished scholars." From this account
are taken the funds that provide the University Lectures.
Any department of instruction in the University is entitled to make
use of this fund, and the lectures are understood to be a part of the educa-
tional program of that department. ..
There have been a wide range of subjects in the past 20 years, during
which the University Lectures have -

T ext Library
Lends Books
To Aid Needy
While the Textbook Lending Li-
brary, founded May, 1937, has only
a short record it is one of extremely
valuable service.
It is the means of supplying a very
important necessity to those students
who are unable to provide their own
books. Academic counselors, men-
tors and deans recommend those of
their students in need of this aid to
the Textbook Library committee
which consists of Assistant Dean E.
A. Walter of the College of Litera-
ture, Science and the Arts, chair-
man; Mr. S. W. McAllister, Associate
Librarian; Prof. A. D. Moore, of the
College of Engineering; Claude Eg-
gertsen of the School of Education,
and Prof. D. C. Long of the history
department.
The project began with the rais-
ing of $2,050 in gifts from alumni.
Since then books have been acquired
for the library from the income from
this fund, from unclaimed articles
in the Lost and Found Department
and from student contributions.
In this way about 800 books and
seven slide rules have been accumu-
lated. There is still great need for
increase, however, because nearly, a
hundred students' requests were un-
filled last semester. Recently a
number of requests have been re-
ceived for microscopes, of which the
library has none':
Any students who can contribute
to this service of the University are
asked to leave their books at the
Angell Hall study hal, the General
Library or any branch library.

Citizens Move
To Aid Haisley
Committee Hopes To Get
5, 000 Schoo El ectors
A concerted drive to secure 5,000
registered school electors moved into
high gear yesterday, under the spon-
sorship of the Citizens' Committee,
which was formed to protest the
ouster of Ann Arbor Superintendent
of Schools Otto W. Haisley.
Nearly 65 men and women attended
a meeting of the Committee at which
methods of registration were discussed
and explained. It was pointed out that
only 588 votes were cast in the School
Board election last year, indicating,
Committee members said, that the
Board's dismissal of Haisley was not
in accordance with the public will.
Members cautioned that citizens are
eligible for removal from the rolls af-
ter failing to vote in two succeeding
school elections. Registration, it was
explained, can be made daily in the
business office of the Ann Arbor
High School.

American students will have an
opportunity to combine summer
courses at South American universi-
ties with a vacation cruise, accord-
ing to the itinerary planned by the
Grace Line. This trip is of special
interest to Michigan students, since
the University, has enrolled citizens
of Venezuela and Ecuador in its own
summer session.
The 67 day trip embracing a 30 day
course at the University of San Mar-
cos in Peru, is typical of these
cruises. Leaving New York June 20
this group will arrive at Lima July 2.
The program here includes a month's
study at San Marcos in addition to a
two weeks t'rip to Cuzco, ancient
capital of the Incas and one of the
high spots of New World archaeology.
Favorable Study Conditions
The University of San Marcos was
founded by the Dominican Order in
1550. Continuing as an educational
institution since that date, it offers
Michigan students a chance to study
Spanish under extremely favorable'
conditions.
For students with a limited amount
of available time, the Grace Line
offers a Lima trip which lasts only
53 days. The steamer leaves New
York on July 4 and returns to the
United States on Aug. 25.
Special Tourist Cruise
A special tourist cruise has also
been scheduled by the dine. Chile,
Argentina, Bolivia and Peru are in-
cluded in this summer-long excur-
sion, which offers Andes skiing dur-
ing the middle of July. Steamer,

Students planning to take summer
courses at the University of San

evidences of their citizenship, since
their passports must be visaed by the
Peruvian Consul. Further informa-
tion can be obtained from the office
of the Dean of Men in University

Jardin stated.

L. vantages of the Navy training pro-

of needed to qualify a student for Naval

ud- tb the college diploma needed for a
commission in any other branch of

end Ensign Jardin himself is a gradu-
m- ate of Pensacola. An alumnus of
ity Marquette University, he did not de-
the cide to go into aviation until after
ut- two years of "teaching school." He
ar. qualified for the Navy's training pro-
is- gram at Grosse Ile, Michigan, went
ber on to Pensacola, and finished his
ia- course of training at Miami.
"My ultimate goal is commercial
aviation," he continued. Most Naval

get your commission, they're paying
you $245 a month, while you're on
active duty."
When asked about the differences
between the Army and the Navy
flight training programs, he replied
that the two types of flying--Army
and Navy-were entirely different.
He didn't commit himself on which
was better, however, except to say
that the 'Navy training program, be-
cause of the nature of Navy flying,
included more instruction in naviga-

course.
Flint Agencies
Receive Gifts'
Alumnus Presents Stock
To City Organizations
Sixteen Flint community, agencies;
and organizations benefited from the
birthday present given them by the
University's oldest living varsity ath-
lete, Arthur G. Bishop, '73, on his
90th anniversary April 12.
Transactions have now been com-
pleted in the transfer of 2,000 shares
of General Motors stock, with an
aggregate value of more than $70,000,
to these groups. Unique among the
beneficiaries was the University of
Michigan Club of Flint, given 50
shares.
In offering the stock, divided into
blocks of from 50 to 150 shares each,
Bishop made only one stipulation:
that they niot be used to cover operat-
ing cost. He intends them to be
channeled for projncts temporarily
out of reach because of maintenance
demands.
Bishop is a director of the General
Motors Corporation and is chairman
of the board of directors of the Gene-
see County Savings Bank. While at
the University he was awarded a
baseball letter, and at present he
serves in the honorary capacity of
life president of the local "M" club.
Although he was stricken withg
pneumonia in March and as a con-
sequence was unable to attend a
civic testimonial planned for him by
the Chamber of Commerce, Bishop
is now reported recovering.
