that the character and mental
viewpoint of applicants is given
Kreater consideration than special
science courses in excess of the
minimum requirements, Dean
Peake said.
Because the doctor is more than
a "super technician," he must de-
velop a broad social perspective,
the medical educators declared.
To fulfill his role as a community
leader, and to develop his tech-,
niques of effective personal rela-
tionships with his patients and
fellow citizens, he must have more
than a technical background, the
medical educators declared.
Summarized Viewpoint
Dean Peake, who summarized the
viewpoint of the literary colleges
at the conference, emphasized that
he significant point which the
exchange of opinions brought out
was that the medical educators
themselves advocated more than
a kechnical background for pros-
pective doctors.
Prof. Alfred H. Stockard, of the
zoology department. accompanied
Dean Peake to the Louisville con-
ference. Prof. Stockard is an ad-
visor to premedical students con-
centrationg in zoology.
Flower Plates
Are Exhibited
An exhibit in the Museum ro-
tunda reveals that law provides a
penalty for indiscriminate gather-
ing of certain wildflowers.
The display, arranged by Dr.
Rogers McVaugn of the Univer-
sity Herbarium, shows the variety
of flowers which are easily exter-
minated if picked freely.
Included in the display are 46
colored plates of some of Michi-
ian's more showy specimens.
Among them are native orchids,
trilliums and gentians which are
protected by statute because they
are easily destroyed.

Italian Towns
Endangered by
Lava Stream
New Crater Breaks
In Mount Etna's Side
ROME, Feb. 26-OP)-A fiery
stream of lava, bubbling from a
new crater broken in the side of
Mount Etna, was reported in press
dispatches from Sicily today to
have branched into separate forks
which rolled threateningly toward
several communities.
While villagers fled in panic,
Italian authorities rushed motor
vehicles to Cisterna and Passo
Pisciaro to assist in the exodus if
the flow continued, the dispatches
said. They added that the molten
mass had surged to within a mile
and a half of Passo Pisciaro, first
village in its path.
The eruption of the Sicilian
volcano, relatively quiet since 1928
when it destroyed the village of
Mascati, was said to have begun
late yesterday when the lava
blasted, out the new crater.
The Rome newspaper Giornale
D'Italia said the fiery flood began
advancing in a stream 300 yards
wide at a rate of about 70 yards
an hour, and that when it reached
the plain of Damusi, at an alti-
tude of about 1,600 yards, it broke
into the three forks.
The correspondent for Giornale
D'Italia said the general flow of
lava was headed toward Colabasso
and Guariola and that two forks
menaced Passo Pisciaro, a small
outlying portion of the commun-
ity of Castiglione Di Sicilia.
.Four Charged
Wyith Extortion
DETROIT, Feb. 26-(I)-Four
men, including two minor CIO of-
ficials, were accused today of en-
gaging in a greedy scramble to
extort $80,000 from a self-con-
fessed dealer in black market OPA
gasoline stamps.
The tangled threads of a police
report on the alleged plot touched
on murder and mayhem cases that
have long baffled investigators.
One of the Union defendants,
Perly P. McManus, 40, filed a
$100,000 damage suit alleging false
arrest after his arraignment.
VcManus, financial secretary
of Briggs Local 212, CIO United
Auto Workers, and a wartime ra-
tion board chairman, brought his
suit in circuit court against the
Detroit Police Department and the
Wayne County Prosecutor's Office.

Library Has
Two-Fold Goal
serves as Reference
And Research Center
The two-fold goal of the Uni-
versity's Transportation Library,
considered the most complete of
its kind, is to function as a cur-
rent reference center and to ob-
tain all available background ma-
terial on transportation, accord-
ing to Prof. Roger L. Morrison
curator of the Library.
Jeep in 1805
One interesting bit out of the
transportation past, which is con-
tained in original papers in the
library, is the story of the world's
first amphibious "jeep" which was
unveiled in Philadelphia in 1805.
The creation was the first motor
vehicle in America and was driven
down Market Street and into and
up the Delaware River by its in-
ventor, Oliver Evans.
The library also has a collec-
tion of original maps. One of
these is drawn by Orange Risdon,
a native of Saline, Mich., who laid
out the Chicago Road, which is
now U.S. 112.
The most complete collections
of literature on canals and canal
transportation, gatherings of au-
tomotive, aircraft and trucking
transportation information and
valuable volumes of Moody's and
Poor's reference manuals on rail-
roads also are in the Library.
Some of the reference manuals
date back to the 18th century.
Constant Use
"Students make constant use of
the library's material," Prof. Mor-
rison said, "and engineers and
executives of automobile compan-
ies often come here to obtain in-
formation they can find nowhere

The Parking Problem:
The cooperation of all concern-
ed, both students and faculty, is
earnestly requested in the present
parking emergency, so that all
may benefit in so far as that is
The University Council has laid
down certain rules which attempt
to regulate parking in the restrict-
ed areas on the campus. These
areas are plainly marked to indi-
cate that only those cars bearing
parking permit plates may park
in them. The rules provide that
those with the rank of instructor
or above and those on the admin-
istrative staff to whom the privil-
ege is accorded may obtain the
proper plates at the Information
Desk, Room 1, University Hall. To
date 850 plates have been issued;
the number of spaces available
on the campus in the restricted
areas is approximately one half
that number. This situation in
itself creates one problem. When
holders of permits park their cars
carelessly, taking more room than
is necessary, and park so as to
prevent any possibility of exit, the
problem is agiravated; and when
those having no parking plates
park in restricted areas, the whole
systemn ofcontrol breaks down.
The driving permits. issued to
students by the Office of Student
Affairs, do not entitle the holders
to park in any restricted parking
area, except for those students who
are physically incapacitated to
whom campus permit plates have
been issued.
It is the sincere hope of the
committee, to which the Univer-
sity Council has delegated the re-
sponsibility of administering the
rules with respect to parking, that
a thoughtful respect for the rights
of the others may ease the prob-
lem for all.
