25 YEARS OF WORK:
Collection of English Proverbs
Compiled by Professor Tilley,
By V4YRA S4CKS
Prof. Morris P. Tilley, of the En-
glish department, has been compil-
ing, for the past twenty-five years,
the most complete and scholarly pro-
verb collection on record.
Thirteen and a half thousand max-
ims and sayings from English litera-
ture will be contained in his "A Dic-
tionary of Proverbs in England (1530
-1700)." This number includes all
the proverbs Shakespeare uses, many
sayings from Milton, and some from
all the great Elizabethan works. Il-
lustrative examples of each proverb
will be cited.
Check and Double-Check
The phase of work now going on is
the careful checking and rechecking
of proverbs. Prof. Tilley and his
helpers have been making rigorous
searches through various first edi-
tions which he' has sent out for and
in the rare book room at the library.
Other proverb collections and works
of literature have been used, but in
almost every instance Prof. Tilley has
had to see the original source before
accepting the word of other books.
Members of Engine
Faculty To Give Talks
Two papers written by members of
the faculty of the University's engi-
neering college will be read at the
annual meeting of the American, So-
ciety of Mechanical Engineers which
will be held Monday through Friday
in New York City.
Prof. O. W. Boston will present his
paper on Metal-Cutting Nomograph
for Cutting Steel with Single-Point
Tools. Prof. William Gilbert ad
William C. Truckenmiller will give a
paper on Practical Cutting-Fluid
Recommendations for High-Speed
The result of his work will be the first1
complete and minutely exact search
into the sources of proverbs.
"The purpose of the book, of
course, is the fuller understanding of
the literature of England's greatest
creative period," Prof. Tilley explain-
ed. During this golden age the pro-
verbs of many nations, including La-
tin and Greek proverbs, were wovenI
into English literature by the great
geniuses of that era. These writers
anglicized and added to foreign pro-

Mrs. Soulsby, began engineering at
the University of Toronto. Upop
graduation she was given a job as an
electrical engineer at Pontiac, Michi-
gan. It was then she decided to at-
tend the University of Michigan. De-
spite an attack of illness, similar to
the dreaded infantile paralysis, which
kept her in a wheel chair for three
years, Mrs. Soulsby completed her
work in 1929.
Her first job after graduating from
Michigan was with the Fairchild
company at Montreal as an airplane
designer, leaving that firm to take up
her present position in 1933. She was
the first woman to be named chief
engineer of a major aircraft com-
pany in Canada, perhaps the world.
Capably holding down that respon-
sible work, Mrs. Soulsby has found
time to contini..e with her college stu-
dies. She has completed two years of
post-graduate work toward a doctor's
degree at the Massachusetts Insti-
tute of Technology.
Mrs. Soulsby has had several 'firsts'
among her accomplishments. She
was the first woman ever to read a
paper before the Canadian Engineer-
ing Institute of which she is now a
member. She also was the first wo-
man to receive the engineering degree
from the University of Toronto.
While other women preceeded her in
engineering work at Michigan, Mrs.
Soulsby was still considered one of
those rare individuals. Today it is
another matter, thanks to Mrs. Soul-
sby and others like her.
