Research Solves Authorship
Of Angell Hall's Inscription

Who wrote the inscription on
the front of Angell Hall? You
know, the one that goes, "Relig-
ion, Morality and Knowledge be-
ing necessary to good government
and happiness of mankind, schools
and the means of education shall
forever be encouraged."
Most of those students queried
by this reporter who had an opin-
ion replied, "Why, Thomas Jeffer-
son." However, Prof. Amos R.
Morris of the University English
department says "No," and he
ought to know.
Back in 1944, Prof. Morris, tired
of hearing Jefferson named as
the author of the motto, where-
Concert To Be
Given Sunday
Doris Podewils, pianist and
Mary Canberg, violinist will join
the Ann Arbor Civic Orchestra in
a program sponsored by the In-
ternational Center at 8 p.m. Sun-
day in the Union.
In the absence of director Joseph
Maddy, the 50-piece orchestra will
be directed by associate Warren
Ketcham. The concert will be pre-
ceeded by the Polonia Society's
afternoon program of Polish folk-
lore and a Polish dinner.
Miss Podewils will perform Mc.-
zart's Piano Concerto No. 23 in
A major. Miss Canberg, a former
resident of Ann Arbor, will be
heard in Lalo's "Symphonic E-
pagnole," accompanied by Geral-
dine Seeback.
Tolish Night'
To Be Sunday
Films of Poland's cities and peo-
ple, Polish songs and dances and
"kielbasa" served buffet style will
highlight Polonia Club's "Polish
Night," Sunday in the Union Ball-
Planned to give people an in-
sight into the Polish character,
homeland and culture, the pro-
gram will also feature a short talk,
"Poland's Contributions to World
Culture," by Mrs. May Czajkowa.
Three films, "Color Studies of
Chopin," "Picturesque Poland,"
and "Poland and Danzig" will be
shown beginning at 3 p.m.
Tickets for the buffet supper
which will follow are available to
students and faculty at the Inter-

Vital, interesting positions
with top American firms in
foreign countries are avail-
able to college trained men
and women. These positions
present an opportunity for
an excellent future in many
fields, technical and other-
wise, with high remunera-
tions. The "Foreign Re-
search Register," a classi-
fied directory of over 300
outstanding American com-
panies employing college
graduates in foreign posi-.

as lhe had been in France at the
time of the writing of the North-
west Ordinance of 1787, in which
it first appeared, decided to do
some research on the subject.
With the assistance of Dr. Ran-
dolph G. Adams, director of the
William L. Clements Library, he
finally uncovered original letters
written by two long-forgotten
members of the Continental Con-
gress committee which drew up
the Ordinance. These men were
Nathan Dane, a lawyer, and Man-
assah Cutler, Congregationalist
minister and later secretary of the
speculativeOhio yCompany, which
sold stock to buy the public lands
turned over to the Continental
Congress by the state of Virginia.
Each man claimed in the letters
to be the original author of the
phrase, after it had been widely
quoted and become famous.
Convinced of Author
Prof. Morris, when asked yes-
terday who he thought composed
the original draft, said he would
be unwilling to say until that
document had been found, if it
exists. Each probably had a hand
in modifying the phraseology, he
conceded. Dr. Adams, however, is
convinced Dane was the original
Eventual recovery of the docu-
ment is hoped for by Prof. Mor-
ris. who said it may be among
papers donated to the Harvard
Law School by Dane.
Observe Contemporaries
Traditions die hard, thoweb, and
whichever of these obscure- con-
temporaries of the great denocrat
is eventually found to merit the
honor, it is likely that some future
reporter, coming upon this squib,
will hear, if he asks the same
question, "Why, Thomas Jeffer-
son, of course."

Alumni Heads
Go To Meetings
Members of organizations con-
nected with the University will at-
tend various meetings this week-
