meant by collateral reading, Prof.'
Dodge used a chapter on the Per-
sian War in a Greek history text.
A student following his method

fr-yim the viewpoint of the effect
of tfi(e(defeat on the Persians. He
wvould also readl in the Encyclo-
pedia Britannica, and look up any
other sources mentioned in his
text.
Prof. Dodge favors getting back
to the original sources as much as
possible, in order to get the whole
background. This does not apply
to history alone, but to all
branches of learning. "In the

Problem of Finding Time
How can a student in a pres-
ent-day u~niversity, whose pro-
fessors demand that he learn a lot
of facts that he can repeat on an
examination, find time to do all
this collateral reading?
"It's simple," Prof. Dodge de-
(lared. "Instead of spending three
hours mnemorizing the facts in a
ehlap~ter' 01 your text, spend one
half hour' reading the text, and two
and one h7alf hours doing collateral
reading. You may surprise your
professor by knowing more about
the ,Subject than lie does."

Prof essor - H(nry Ro ttschaefer of
the University of Minnesota1 law~
school declared yesterday in the

Outstanding indications of the
trend toward increased state pow-
er, hie said, lie in cases involving
the states' right to tax interstate
commerce. Much of the states'
previously restricted authority ir
this field, he pointed out, has beer
freed by recent Court acceptance
of the view that interstate corn-
merce should pay its way through
the states.

His genius gave wings to words
it was an historic moment. Alexander Graham Bell's telephone
had just spoken its first words-" Air. VWaion, colne here, 1 u-anat you!''
'That evening in Boston-March 10, 1876-Dr. Bell's crude
instrument transmitted hus voice only to the next room. But out
of It was destined to comnea whlei new era-the era of quick, easy

of talking pictures, voice and music reproduction systems and
electrical aids for the hard of hearing. Few inventions have played
a greater part in shaping the wor-ld whe I've irii
Since 1877--just one year after Bell's long experimentation was
crowned with success-it- has been Western Electric's privilege to
help carry forward his great idea which gave wings to words. In
that year Western Electric made its first telephone. More thuan
45,000,000 have followed it-over 4,000,000 of them in 1946 alone.
Today, from coast to coaist, in factories, offices, distributing
houses andl central office installation crews, there are more than
11.0,000) Western Electric workers. Inibued with the Bell System
spirit of service, they arc helping to provide equipment in record
quauntities to meet telephone neceds far beyond any envisioned by
the invenitor.
