Coins. From King Midas' Fra
Included in Money Exhibit

Misers are commonly unpopular
people, but the staff of the Mu-
seum of Archaeology has a vote of
thanks for the "Midas" of Kar-
anis, Egypt, who is responsible for
the ancient coins included in the
new exhibit at the museum.
Due to the accumulative abil-
* ity and secretive nature of Kar-
anis' rich man, the museum pos-
sesses over 50,000 coins which he
Faculty Group
To Prticipate
-n Gathering
Six University faculty members,
headed by Dr. Charles A. Fisher
director of the University Exten-
sion Service, are in Atlantic City,
N N. J. today for a three day meeting
of the 32nd Annual Conference of
the National University Extension
Dr. Fisher will be chairman at
the general session tomorrow
morning and will lead a discus-
sion of enrollment trends in high-
er education.
Also taking part in the meeting
are Ford Lemler and Arthur A.
Elder, both of the Extension Serv-
ice, Berenice U. Lee, supervisor of
the Correspondence Study Depart-
ment of the University, Everett J.
Soop, assistant director of the ex-
tension service, and Miss Helen
Gleason, supervisor of the exten-
e sion center at Grand Rapids.

buried in bags and jars under the
floors of his pretentious home.
Some of the coins are on display
as a part of the exhibit illustrat-
irg life in an Egyptian town 1,900
years ago.
Something Special
Excavators from the University
expected something special when
they came upon an infrequently-
seen stone door frame and steps
on one of the main streets of
Karanis. Their anticipation was
rewarded by the discovery of sev-
eral rare sculptured figures of
Greek deities and the hidden
treasures in the earth. The hoard-
er was originally supposed to be
a miser, but a fragment of pap-
rus later found nearby mentioned
transactions with the bank, indi-
cating the wealthy man might
have been the banker.
Each of the coins are imprinted
with the emperor's head on one
side and a familiar scene or im-
portant event on the other. One
of those on display pictures the
Pharos of Alexandria harbor, the
most famous lighthouse of ancient
times, with a ship and the sea in
the background.
Another coin retells the fable of
the founders of Rome. It contains
the image of a wolf suckling Rom-
ulus and Remus, the legendary
builders of that great city.
Other coins are stamped with
deities, buildings and designs
which afford an understanding of
many activities of the Egyptians
and the influence of the Greeks
and Romans upon that ancient
