Board of Scientists
The Institute will function under
the - Rackham School of Graduate
Studies, but will be governed by a
12-man board of University scientists,
each a specialist in a different physi-
cal or biological field. Members of
this governing board will have terms
of six years, with the initial appoint-
ments staggered.
Governing Body
The following professors were nam-
ed by the Regents to the governing
body: Prof. P. S. Welch, 'limnology;
Prof. F. K. Sparrow, botany; Com-
mander L. A. Baier, naval architec-
ture and marine engineering; Prof.
Earnest Boyce, sanitary engineering;
Prof. R. L. Belknap, meteorology;
Dean S: T. Dana, forestry; Prof. E.
F. Greenman, anthropology; Prof.
K. W. Landes, geology; Prof. H. B.
Lewis, biological chemistry; Prof. K.
C. McMurry, geography; Prof. H.
van der Schalie, zoology; and Prof.
James Wilson, geophysics. All of
these were members of the organ-
izing committee.
Long Term Research
"It is hoped to enlist the coopera-
tion of interested individuals and
other academic groups," Prof. Spar-
row remarked. The Institute plans
to initiate long-term research pro-
grams which will extend over a period
of"years. Plans for this institute were
under discussion for nearly two years
by a committee of faculty men.
Ideal Location
The University is ideally located
for such an institute, since it is cen-
trally situated in regard to all of the
Great Lakes, is actually on a penin-
sula, and has an unusual number of
men interested in the various aspects
of such study, Prof. Sparrow explain-
Since relatively little research has
been done, it is believed that oppor-
tunities for investigation are practic-
ally unlimited. Work done by the
Institute will parallel that done by
the Woods Hole Oceanographic In-
stitution on the Atlantic seaboard
and by the Scripps Institute of
Oceanography on the west coast.

State Street
Was Battlefield
Of 'Dutch War'
Ann Arbor was the scene of a
"Dutch War" in 1856. The belliger-
ents were German immigrants on
one side of State St., and "over-
lively" students on the other. The
battles centered about the German
eating houses, according to the Uni-
versity of Michigan Encyclopedic
Hostilities began when two young
men quarreled with the proprietor of
one of the restaurants. Resenting
their forcible ejection, the students
returned the next evening with re-
inforcements and the battle cry "Re-
venge or beer."
Kegs and barrels were broken,
knives were drawn and clubs swung,
but the interference by the police
prevented further damage.
This truce between town and cam-
pus was broken when six students,
bent on revenge, attended a dance
for townspeople at the other eating
place and consumed the refresh-
ments, both edible and drinkable.
One of the mischief-makers was
captured by the proprietor and held
for a ransom of $10. A student mob
surrounded the restaurant and re-
sorted to using timbers as battering
rams. The proprietor was forced to
yield his prisoner.
Increasing animosities, a warrant
was made for the six students the
following day, but they were shielded
by their fellows, members of the
faculty and a Regent.
An armistice was made with the
withdrawal of the complaint by the
proprietor, who in the meantime,
had been charged with selling liquor
to minors.

Architectural work of William W.
Wurster, one of the gmost prominent
west coast architects and now Dean
of the School of Architecture and
Planning at Massachusetts Institute
of Technology, is on display in the
mezzanine exhibition rooms at the
Rackham Building.
Known for Simplicity
The group of 12 plans illustrated
with photographs from various
angles is representative of Califor-
nia building. Mr. Wurster is known
as one of the foremost promoters of
the California school of architec-
ture. His designs are simple and
without ornamentation, and he has
made use of unusual building mater-
ials, such as concrete and tile blocks,
corrugated iron, and redwood.
"These designs are modern but
of an extremely livable character,"
Dean Wells I. Bennett, of the School
of Architecture and Design which
is sponsoring the exhibit, pointed
Work Called Outstanding
Mr. Wurster's design for the
Schuckl and Co. factory at Sunny-
vale, Calif., has been selected by the
Museum of Modern Art in New York
as one of the 40 best in the last 10
years. It was built since the war and
is of wood construction. It is un-
usual for its great number of win-
dows and its sun roof for employees.
Plans of the women's dormitory at
the University of California at Berk-
ley are included in the exhibit. Here
Mr. Wurster has made wide use of
wood siding and cement blocks.
Mr. Wurster's experimental hous-
ing designs for Carquinez Heights,
Vallejo, Calif., are considered very
progressive. This is a war housing
project which features "demount-
ables" as well as permanent houses.
Home Designs Included
Included in the exhibit are de-
signs of several homes in San Mateo.
Orinda, and other outlying districts
of San Francisco. Mr. Wurster has
integrated modern conveniences into

Rural Problems
"Rural Mexico" conducted in Span-

ants and the division of the land.
One of her most interesting experi-
ences at the University, Miss Ter-
brueggen said, was a trip, made pos-
sible by this course, to the rural vil-
lage of Tlascala, where the university
students were cordially welcomed by
the native Mexican Indians. The
advancement of Mexican education
during the last decade was observed;
she said, by the Mexican's interest
