"FOLLOW THE crowd to Eliza

grand opening of Mosher Hall's
Eliza M. Sweet Shop, dorm gen-
eral store. Colored paper foot-
prints led from all over the dorm
to the store.
The Sweet Shop, which sells
food and sundries to dorm resi-
dents, is sponsored by the Mosh-
er sophomore class. A certain
percentage of the profits are
turned over to the Displaced
Students Fund.
The store, which was named

A combination "tea dance" and
candlelight dinner was the theme
Wednesday night, when the resi-
dents of Betsy Barbour and Helen
Newberry, and the men living in
the Law Quad held their first ex-
change dinner of the second se-
mester. Following a session over
the teacups beginning at 4 p.m.,
dinners were held in the Lawyers
Club and the Betsy Barbour din-
ing room.

The rooms and apartments of
over 600 students are rapidly being
adorned with colorful paintings
rented from the Student, Loan
Print Library.
The prints, ranging from the
works of Rembrandt to Picasso,
are loaned out to students at the
beginning of each semester for a
rental fee of 50 cents.
WITH THE IDEA of setting up
the library first promoted here on
campus by President Alexander
Ruthven and Dean of Students
Eric A. Walter, an original gift
of 400 prints from the J. L. Hud-
son Company in Detroit formed
the nucleus of the collection.
Since the first prints were
rented by students in the fall of
1947, the library has grown to
over 670 prints. Funds obtained
from the rental fees accounted
for 125 of the additional prints,
while gifts from local residents,
students, altnni, faculty and
the Office of Student Affairs
makeupthe remainder of the
The first 400 prints, donated by
the J. L. Hudson Company, were
selected by a committee of three
from the Fine Arts department.
Since then a permanent commit-
tee to buy additional prints has
been set up.
Many of the new prints are du-
plications of the most popular
paintings in the original collec-
tion, including a large number of
works by contemporary American
Among the most popular pic-
tures are a group of local campus
scenes. Paintings of President
Ruthven's home, Angell Hall, the
Union, and the Burton Memorial
Tower are included in this :series.
THE PRINTS range from 10 by
12 inches to 28 by 40 inches in
size. A fund for the framing of
the first 400 was set up by Presi-
dent Ruthven, with the frames
constructed by the late James B.
Saunders and the University car-
penter shop.

Group Study
Pursued on
EiolislT Tri
Encouragement of international
scientific coCperation is the pri-
mary objective of Prof. Dorwin
Cartwright. director of the Re-
search Center for Group Dynam-
ics who leaves Ann Arbor today
for a visit to England.
Most of Prof. Cartwright's work
in England will be done with the
Tavistotk Institute of Human Re-
latioris. in London. The Tavistock
Institute is the English equivalent
for the Research Center for Group
IN LAYMAN'S language, group
dynamics is an attempt to apply
scientific methods to the study of
group activity. In many cases, it
produces desired social changes
as a by-product.
"We hope to confer about
possibilities of starting research
in the broad field of group dy-
nainics on an international
basis," Prof. Cartwright told
The Daily.
"We have conducted several
studies of group activity in Amer-
ica, from which consistent re-
sults have been obtained. We
wculd like to know if comparative
studies in different nations would
I yield similar results.

"IF TIHE ENGLISH will con-
duct comparative studies on group
activity, the results would be sig-
nificant in determining the reli-
ability of our findings."
Prof. Cartwright hopes that his
personal liaison mission will help
smooth administrative friction
which so far has hampered many
efforts to put the business of con-
ducting research in sociological
activity on a world-wide basis.
Difficulties related to publish-
ing a magazine jointly edited by
English and American experts will
draw much of Prof. Cartwright's
attention during his overseas jour-

"I feel that I have the nicestl
job in the University because I

An indication of the popularity
of the library was seen early this
