Library Shows Universitania
Of Cows, Campus, Classes

In the year 2046, University build-
ings will extend halfway to Ypsi, but
the activities of the students, unless
cancelled by radioactivity, will be
much the same as they are now.
MYDA To Hold
First Meeting
Of Fall Term
Michigan Youth for Democratic
Action will hold its first meeting of
the semester at 7:30 p.m. today in the
Garden Room of the League.
MYDA, a campus chapter of Amer-,
ican Youth for Democracy, is an in-
ter-racial, anti-fascist organization.
Last year MYDA conducted cam-
paigns to make China independent of
American armed forces; and to pro-
mote justice in the Columbia, Tenn.
incident in which a lynching of a
Negro veteran was attempted while
15 others were held incommunicado
on the charge of attempted murder.
MYDA climaxed its semester plans{
with a fight to break economic rela-
tions with Franco Spain.
This semester members will act to
help preserve the peace and "big
three" unity, Harriet Ratner, former
president, revealed.
The -agenda for the meeting to-
night will include an election of of-
ficers and additional activity plans.
Band To Offer
New Routine
Michigan's 107-piece Concert Band
will present a modern routine in half-
time tempo based on the currently
popular radio program, "Take It Or
Leave It," at the Iowa-Michigaaci
football game Saturday.
According to George Cavender,
publicity manager of the band, the
pre-game ceremonies, including a
trumpet fanfare, formation of a
block "I", and flag-raising, will be
led by Drum Major Norman Pollard,
'49E. Lynn Steadman, former Michi-
gan Drum Major, who has returned
from Service to the University this
fall, will perform during the half-
The band, conducted by William
D. Revelli, director, and Harold Fer-

Russ-Spain Deal Denied
MOSCOW, Oct. 3 - (P)- Pravda
denied today that Russia was negoti-
ating with Spain for a Mediteran-
nean naval base on the Balearic Is-
lands, and said that "Anglo-Ameri-
can friends of Franco" were respon-
sible for the publication of such
"filthy silly fables."

At, least that's the impression
gained from seeing the Main Library
exhibit of ejrly Univeritanta
one luniidled years ago, cows as
well as freshmen roamed aimlessly
over the campus; Broad campus
meadows were broken by few build-
ings, and both cows and scholars
seem to have-been well adjust-
ed, unhurried, and unworried.
Even so, the students behaved
like hurried, worried us. Papers
were published, exams written, or-
ganizations waxed and waned. Topics
of gripe sessions included difficult
subjects, presumably eight o'clocks,
but not football tickets.
This exhibit is the latest in a
series that has been brightening
the library's big glass cases, since
the early 1920's. The project is an
activity of the Rare Book Room
staff which at present cimprises
Ella Ilymans and her assistant,
Harriet Jameson.
These two plan the showings, de-
,ide on the material to be used, gath-
er it from various campus sources,
and arrange it in the cases.
Chosen for timeliness and inter-
est, the exhibits cover a wide range
of subjects. Often special showings
are prepared on request of members
of the faculty or for particular
Publie Health
Nurse Resigns
Pearl Haist, Public Health Nurse in
Washtenaw County for 16 years, has
resigned to accept a position as Su-
pervising Nurse in the Lenawee
County Health Department.
Miss Haist first came to Washte-
naw County in 1923 to enroll as a
student in the School of Nursing
at the University. In August, 1930,
she began her work with the Wash-
tenaw County Board of Supervisors
as county school health nurse, and
was active in securing the establish-
ment of the County Health Depart-
Ment in 1941.
Miss Haist holds a B.S. degree in
Public Health Nursing from the Uni-
Employ the Handicapped
Week Declared by Truma
A presidential proclamation was is-
sued yesterday declaring the week of
Oct. 6-12 National Employ the Physi-
cally Handicapped Week.
The United States Employment
Service lists approximately 225,000
disabled veterans, President Truman
said, in addition to 75,000 other
physically handicapped persons who
are seeking employment.
The USES has the facilities to
counsel, select and refer these dis-
abled persons to employers, he stated,
but USES cannot bring jobs and dis-
abled workers together unless em-
ployers list their employment needs.

Exhibit of Old
Textbooks Held
By Ed School
Trends of American
Education Reflected
The School of Education is holding
its annual exhibit of American text-
books at the University Elementary
The exhibit, under the diretion
of Sarita Davis, University Elemen-
tary School Librarian, is designed tc
establish a basis of comparison be-
tween the trends of American edu-
cation from the 18th to 20th cen-
turies as reflected in the textbook
used in the schools of those periods
Bible Studied
The New England student of the
18th century was taught to read and
write with study of the Bible as the
immediate goal. A facsimile of the
New England Primer teaches the
student that "Praying will make us
leave sinning or sinning will make
us leave praying." The exhibit ,also
features a "New England Spelling
Book," "calculated for Common Use
among Children of Both Sexes in
the New England States."
Up until the 1890's, the only col-
cred illustrations were the maps
which decorated the history text-
books. Werner's Primer, published
in 1895, contained the first colored
illustrations. A textbook, published
in 1841, Cobb's Graded Reader was
the first one to recognize the need
for a book adapted to the student's
age and ability to learn.
McGuffey Reader Shown
The exhibit also stars one of the
famous McGuffey's Readers, pub-
lished in 1844. A full set of the M-
Guffey Reader is not possessed by
anyone, including Henry Ford who
owns one of the most complete sets.
"First Lessons in the English Lan-
guage" a grammar textbook of the
1890's, warns the teacher and pupil
to "make haste slowly."
The exhibit will continue in the
University Elementary School Li-
brary until Saturday. The library is
opened from 9 a.m. to noon and 1 to
5 p.m. daily.
