Michigan Historical Collection
Constantly Adds Manuscripts

By MARTHA RAINIER
The Michigan Historical Collec-
tion may soon have to find a new
home if something isn't done to
check its rapidly increasing size.
Way back, before the war, in
1939, some farseeing, wise men
kot the idea of starting a collec-
tion of documents and manu-
scripts of historical importance.
So with a little space in the Rack-
ham Building they began the pro-
cess of collecting. Then the war
came and things slowed down al-
most to a stan'd still.
In 1945 the war ended. When
restrictions on travel were lifted,
the active collecting program be-
gan in earnest.
Trips were made to various
Michigan cities resulting in val-
uable additions to the collection.
At the present time it comprises
6,500 bound volumes of manu-
scripts, 550,000 other items of
manuscript, and 15,000 books and
other printed matter. As fast as
additional space can be found it
is filled with the new material
that is constantly flowing in.
Now after eight years of collect-
ing, the Historical Society is go-
ing to issue a volume all its own.
It will deal with the careers of
the various individual alumni.
The collections aren't just
mouldy, old, dry documents. They
Collection of Fans-
On Display at IC
Fans from all over the world
from the collection of Andee See-
ger, '48, are now on display at the
International Center.
Ebony, sandelwood, lace, net,
tortoise shell, and feathers went
into the delicate work of the fans.

are mostly historically important
writings dealing with Michigan
history or Michigan men promi-
nent in state and nation. More-
over the collection includes many
recent manuscripts.
Hobo' Hobby
PuzzlesCops
Ann Arbor's hard-working pol-
ice officers met a philosopher-
one who likes to just take life
easy-at 4 a.m. yesterday.
He is a 25 year old Wayne man
passing through town on his way
to Fort Wayne, Indiana. But un-
like most travellers, he walks
awhile and then hops on a slow-
ly moving boxcar Jogging west-
ward.
He carried a telescope and an
overnight bag containing a can
of beans and another of apple-
sauce. Financially he had equip-
ped himself with $2.50-although
he could carry more.
"My hobby is hoboing," he told
police, who heard the same story
from his parents in Wayne.
"He comes back and gets a job
until the next time," his mother
explained. "Whatever he earns, he
turns over to us-then when he
leaves, he takes whatever he
wants."
The telescope, queried the con-
scientious local police? She had
the bill for it-purchased two
years ago. Since then standard
travelling equipment.
So local officers released him
"to go his way" on the under-
standing that it would be towards
Wayne and not Fort Wayne.

Fund Carnival
Hillel, in carnival dress, will
welcome students from 6:30 to
10:30 today to their spring carni-
val planned to raise funds for the
Allied Jewish Appeal
Fund-raising booths from fra-
ternities, sororities, and indepen-
dent league houses will line the
midway" with sideshows, games
and fortune tellers.
There'll be dancing, refresh-
ments, and entertainment for all,
Mike Sherman, publicity chair-
man, promised.
The whole campus is invited to
help Hillel top their $7,500 quota,
Sherman said.

Like Mary's famous lamb who
followed her to school each day,
Muffey, a huge black mongrel,
follows Mrs. Rosalie F. Green,
University secretary, to work every
morning and assumes his post
under her overflowing desk.
Mrs. Green is secretary to Dr.
Esson M. Gale, director of Inter-'
national Center and Counselor to
Foreign Students.
Chased off the streets by the
recent city ordinance against
roaming dogs, Muffey couldn't be
made to stay at home all day. A
couple of pot shots made action
imperative.

Secretary's DogLivens IC

So Mrs. Green devised the idea
of taking her "pup" to Interna-
tional Center, thereby keeping her
eye on him and at the same time
allowing him a few romps in the
sun.
Although it was a novelty to
him at first, Muff is quite bored
with it all after three weeks of
office routine. He has been quite
a delight to the students at IC
though, Mrs. Green reports.
"And think of what a cosmo-
politan outlook he is developing,"
she added.

Opera Works
Will Be Given
The Opera Workshop, under the
direction of Wayne Dunlap, in
conjunction with The University
Symphony Orchestra and the
members of the Orchestra Con-
ducting Class will present a pro-
gram of Operatic Scenes and Ar-
ias, 8:30 p.m. today in Hill Audi-
torium.
The program includes works by
Mozart, Strauss, Delibes, Rossi, .
Massenet, and Mascagni. A large
part of the program will be various r
songs and arias from Mozart.

SOLVED: How the hill-dwellers
kept in shape during 'Ann Arbor's
hard winter.
Hill-dwellers, in this case, are
the members of Delta Tau Delta
fraternity, who live at the summit
of the highest hill in town.
It wasn't only that long climb
back up the hill from campus two
or three times a day, but the vig-
orous game they played when they
got home.
Trifling Overhead
To play this competitive ver-
sion of "52 Pick-Up," one need
have no more than two decks of
playing cards and a felt hat.
GUILD
NEWS
Congregational - Disciples Guild
will meet at 6 p.m. at the Congre-
gational Church. Following the
supper, there will be an Installa-
tion service for next year's officers.
Miss Muriel Lester, world trav-
eler, lecturer, and author, will give l
the last Henry Martin Loud lec-,
ture at the First Methodist Church
at 10:45 a.m. Sunday.
The topic of this speech is "The
Energy of the Spirit." She will
also speak at the regular Wesleyan
Guild meeting at 5:30 p.m. on
"Peace Makers in a World of De-
spair." This meeting is open to
the public.

Rt. Rev. Yu Yue Tsu, Ph.D.,
Anglican bishop of Kunming, Chi-
na, will speak to a joint Canter-
bury Club-Greek Orthodox meet-
ing at 5:30 p.m., St. Nicholas
Church, 414 Main.
Preceding the service, Canter-
bury Club will sponsor a tea hon-
oring Bishop Tsu, in Canterbury
House from 4-5:15. Members of
the Chinese Christian Fellowship
will be special guests, and all
students are invited. Following the
service and address, members of
both groups will adjourn to the
parish house for a light supper
and an evening of Greek folk-
dancing, and games.

ually.)
So far, Ralph "Rufe" Young
holds the record at 41 outof 52,
and has trounced all upstart
challengers from his own and
other houses - but then, Rufe
wears a size eight hat, and al-
ways plays his home course.
Fellow enthusiasts who con-
tacted Fritz Crisler to see whether
Rufe was eligible for a varsity let-
ter reported that Crisler had "no
comment on no comment."
Or Vice Versa
Rufe's stiffest competitor is
Arthur "Bud" Johnson, varsity
swimmer, who plays to keep in
trim for the 100-yard backstroke.
Although the game has not yet
gained NCAA recognition, fans
agre that as a spectator sport it's
got bridge beat all hollow. They're
looking forward to intramural
playoffs next winter.
Anyway, the game is good for
lots of laughs, or as Dick Cruiser,
Delt sporting promoter, would
put it-"multi chuckles."
