Eminent Poet Eight Days In Wilds, She Still Smiles
Talms On Youth q....
Today At Hillel1

is -



W. H. Auden Will Discuss
Problem Of Adjustment
Caused By Changes
Introducing a topic of great inter-
est to youth, W. H. Auden, eminent
British poet, will discuss "Adjustment
of Youth in a Changing World" at
Hillel Foundation following regular
religious services at 7:45 p.m. today.
Eminently fitted to 'discuss his
topic, Mr. Auden's travels have taken
him to the focal points of social
change in the 1930's. Disobeying the
expressed wishes of the British gov-
eminent, he went to war-torn Spain
at the time of the revolution to drive
an ambulance for the Loyalist forces.
In 1938 he visited China battling
against the Japanese.
Included in Mr. Auden's many
works are "Poems," "Orators," "Dance
of Death," Letters from Iceland,"
written with Louis McNeice, "On This
Island," "The Ascent of the S-6" and
"Journey to a War," the latter writ-
ten in colloboration with Christopher
In 1937 Mr. Auden was presented
to King George VI by John M'ase-
field to receive the King's Gold Medal
for the best Ppoetry of the year.
Graduating from Christ's College,
Oxford in 1928, Mr. Auden taught
secondary rschools in .England. He
then accepted a position with the
New School For Social Research in
New York and is now teaching in
the University.

As for the American defense ef-
fort, Jones feels that it compares
favorably with Britain's emergency
Work, "when we consider that one
nation has been at War for over two
years, the other at peace." During
the five weeks since his arrival in
the United States, Jones has been
through defense plants in the great
coal and steel areas of Pennsylvania
and the 'East.
Another difficulty faced by Amer-
ica, in jones' opinion, is the "grow-
ing pains" of its labor movement.
Compared with British trade union-
ism, he declared it to be in ,a youth-
ful stage.
Although many Americans believe
that British workers have -given up
the right to strike, Jones gave evi-
dence to. the contrary. "It is wrong
to assume," he said, "that our labor
has completely surrendered its trade
union rights, including the right to
"Therefore," he went on, "while
the workers of Britain regret stop-
pages of work which might delay
production of American war materi-
al, they do not presume to criticize
their fellow-workers of America, or
to flame them entirely for any stop-
pages which occur."
Unemployment caused by the time-
lag of defense production change-
overs cause dissatisfaction, he ad-
mitted, but such a situation calls for
the patience and understanding
which has developed in Britain after
two years of war.

In evacuation centers in war-torn
England today a few hard-working
,ameramen are bending over special
cameras taking microfilms of the
great classics of English literature,
and sending the rolls of film to this
country to be preserved for posterity.
More than 1,000,000 pages of rare
English classics written before 1600
have been photographed and the rolls
sent across the Atlantic without loss
of a film.
Negatives of rare books are stored
in a 'small brick building here in Ann
Abor and negatives of rare manu-
scripts sent to the Library of Con-
gress in Washington.
Work Of Ann Arbor Man
The project is the work of a young
Ann Arbor photo-publisher, Eugene
B. Power, who since 1935 has devoted
his time to the development and
perfection of the microfilm process.
Power himself left Europe three
days before the declaration of war,
after beginning the tremendous task
of filming classics in continental li-
braries. Today the war has halted
that, but the job goes on in England
preserving for Americans the literary
classics of that country.
Two pages of a book are printed on,
each frame of film in the process,
with about 2700 pages recorded in,
each roll. A fast operator can print
30 pages per minute, according to
Microfilming dates back more than,
70 years to the Franco-Prussian War,
when microfilms were made of maps
and documents and sent into be-
sieged Paris by carrier pigeon.
Microfilming Rediscovered
When the war was over, the tech-
nique was lost until microfilming was
At Low Price

rediscovered in this country 10 years
ago when a kodak company started
using microfilms op bank checks.
Robert Binkley of Western Reserve
took up the process as a possible
academic tool, and in 1935 the first
automatic book camera was per-
In Ann Arbor Eugene Power be-
came interested in the idea and wentI
to Washington to see the automaticj
camera. When he returned he builtj
another camera similar .to the orig-
inal, the, second to be built in this
This camera was taken to England
when Power started filming rare
books and manuscripts for English
scholars, and is still in use there.
"Microfilming European classics is
a part of the theory that American
scholarship must take the lead in pre-
serving the world's learning." Power
explains. "If this is true, it is neces'-
sary to have copies of classics avail-
able in this country."
Prints Sent To Libraries
Prints are made from the negatives
apd sent te libraries which. order
them. In libraries special projection
machines make it possible to study
the films much as one would study
a book.
Funds for the task are being pro-
vided by the Rockefeller Foundation.
Power estimates that it costs from
two to three cents per page to produce
microfilms of books and manuscripts.
Power himself has developed
microfilming along another line, in
the filming of doctoral theses. At his
microfilming laboratory in Ann Ar-
bor he will take theses and make mi-
crofilm of them for much less than
it would cost to print them.
Briefs of the papers are then sent'
out in catalogue form to libraries,
which can order those they want.
This cuts down on over-printing of
doctoral theses. The University of
Michigan was the first university to
recognize microfilming as fulfilling
publication requirements for degrees.,
Films Preserve Classics
But right *now the main task of
the young Ann Arbor photo-publish-
er is to preserve the classics of Eng-
land for American scholars. ,
That he is doing so is shown by
this one incident. In England his
, photographers made microfilms of
many of the rare books found in the
GuildhallLibrary. A month later the
library was bombed, destroying the
only available copies of these books.
But they are preserved on microfilms
for scholars in this country.
Team To Hold Meeting
The ROTC rifle team will hold its
first meeting at 4 p.m. today at the
ROTC drill hall. It is expected that
four teams will be organized this year

Gasoline CGut Stops
Motor Fuel Graft
At State Prison
LANSING, Oct. 9.-(P)-Gasoline
and oil allowances for privately-
owned automobiles at the State Prison
of southern Michigan, subjected to
recent criticism by Budget Director
Leo J. Nowicki, have been stopped, it
was disclosed today by Garrett Heyns,
state corrections director.
Nowicki complained that more
than 5,000 gallons of gasoline were
given to eight officials of the prison
since January 1, and criticized other
operating practices at the prison gar-
Heyns wrote Nowicki that records
dating back to 1935 disclosed private
cars had been supplied gasoline at
the prison.:
"It appears that in the course of
time a gas and oil allowance came to
be regarded as one of prerequisites of
certain positions. The practice is,
in certain cases, tangled up with
maintenance allowances.
"Nonetheless, in many cases there
appears no justification in fact for
such allowances. In others it should
have been made proportional to the
extent of actual necessary use in
state service."
Heyns said the warden had taken
steps to control gasoline consumption
several weeks ago.
