Library To Make Records
Available For Circulation

By CHARLES ELLIOTT
From the Brandenberg Concer-
tos to "Kiss Me Kate" - just
sign out your album and take it
home.
Beginning tomorrow, students
with a yen to hear some good re-
cords may go to the basement
study hall of the General Library
and select any of the 125 albums
to be placed in circulation.
* * *
GIFTS OF Dr. Reed M. Nesbitt,
professor of surgery in the Uni-
versity Medical School, the records
are a selection of classical and
semi-classical works. According to
Prof. Warner G. Rice, director of
tne library, they are generally re-

Rental Prints
Still Availabe
Nearly 100 prints of top-notch
paintings will be available for stu-
dent rental starting at 9 a.m.to-
day at the office of the Art Re-
print Collection, 515 Administra-
tion .Bldg.
These prints are all that are left
from the 725 which the Reprint
Collection exhibited at the begin-
ning of the semester in Alumni
Memorial Hall.
THESE PRINTS were nearly as
popular this semester as world
series tickets usually are, accord-
ing to Mrs. Eloise Wilkinson, in
charge of the collection.
"Students began to line up to
see our exhibit at 6:30 a.m. the
first day that prints were avail-
able,' 'she said. "By the time we
opened at 8 o'clock, about 300
were waiting at the doors."
Student taste in pictures now
runs toward modern, streamlined
art, Mrs. Wilkinson observed.
Prints of paintings by Utrillo,
Duy, Van Gogh and Cezanne are
among those which go very ra-
pidly.
And the old home town doesn't
have the artistic lure that it once
had, judging from student tastes.
THIS YEAR, no one has asked
for a picture with hills and spires
that bring back memories of home
towns," Mrs. Wilkinson said.
Students sometimes choose
pictures for what seem to be
strange reasons.
"One studentrented a picture
she disliked intensely because she
,thought that it must have some-
thing to offer, and she wanted to
live with it for a while," Mrs. Wil-
kinson reported.
Color combinations already pre-
sent in student rooms are a big
factor in the choice of a suitable
print. Students are pretty careful
to select just the right print for
whatever sort of hues adorn their
walls.
* * *
LARGE SIZE prints of works
by Riviera, Rouault, Cezanne and
Toulouse-Lautrec are still avail-
able for student rental, along with
a variety of smaller prints. Start-
ing today, students may rent as
many prints as they like.
A charge of 50 cents per print
per semester is made for rentals.
To Give Tall
On BullFights
Francis L. Zwickey, Detroit ed-
ucator and a noted authority on
the art of bull-fighting, will pre-
sent a lecture with movies and

slides on this sport at 8:00 tonight
in the Rackham Lecture Hall.
Zwickey has recently returned
from Spain where he witriessed the
Pamploma celebration, a religious
festival which involves nine days
of bull-fighting. He has also trav-
eled throughout Latin America,
studying the bull fights there.
He is one of the few outsiders
who has been allowed to witness
the bull-fighters' drawing for the
bulls, a traditionally secret ritual
which takes place before each con-
test.
The lecturer is appearing un-
der the auspices of the Depart-
ment of Romance Languages and
the Sociedad Hispanica.
YP's To Convene
The Young Progressives will
hold their first meeting as mem-
bers of the National Young Pro-
gressives of America at 7:30 p.m.
today in the Union.
The campus group has been
granted permission by the Stu-
dent Affairs Committee to affili-
ate with the national organiza-
tion.

cordings of the best orchestras and
artists.
In presenting the records, Dr.
Nesbit stipulated that they must
be circulated among the stu-
dents as a whole, since they are
not intended to be for the use
of any one group.
When the demand for the re-
cords has been determined, a limit
will be decided on the length of
time that they may be kept out,
Dr. Rice said.
The student who wishes to sign
out an album will be required to
fill in a charge slip, and pay for
any broken records upon their re-
turn. The money will be used for
replacements.
"The library is beginning this
service in the expectation that
students will make good use of
Dr. Nesbit's gift, and give the re-
cords excellent care. The success
of the venture depends in great
part on the care and cooperation
of the persons who use them,"
stated Dr. Rice.
"It is Dr. Nesbit's hope, and ours
as well, that other donors will add
to the collection," continued Dr.
Rice.
This collection will be the first
on campus to be open to all stu-
dents. The League collection of
the 925 records was restricted by
the donor for use in the League
building, and the collection in the
Rackham School of Graduate
Studies has been used exclusively
for graduate student' record con-
certs.

By ROMA LIPSKY
"Keep on talking; just forgett
I'm here," Martha Holmes has'
been telling groups of students all
week in her candid picture-shoot-
ing tour of the campus.
Vivacious Miss Holmes, a native
of Louisville, Ky., is in Ann Arbor
on a photography assignment for
"Illustrated," a London pictorial
magazine, which is planning a
photo feature on American Mid-
Western universities.
* * *
RATED AS ONE of the top pho-
tographers in the country, Miss
Martha has done work for the
"Life" and "Time" magazines in
current issue of "U.S. Camera,"
New York, Washington and Hol-
lywood.
Present free-lancing landed
her the "Illustrated's" assign-
ment to visit the Mid-West. She
was at Indiana and Ohio State
before her stop-over in Ann Ar-
bor.
Equipped with three cameras, a
suitcase of flashbulbs and film,
and a rented car, Miss Holmes has
been visiting classes, parties, stu-
dent hang-outs, libraries and
meetings taking candid shots.
"I like to catch people unposed
and in action," she said, shunning
the idea of having subjects pose
for her.
* * *
TAKING A LOOK at the Uni-
versity's physical set-up through
a photographer's eye, she called
the campus interesting to shoot
"because the buildings are not all
alike. They represent changing
times."
"But," she added, "I haven't"
decided whether I like it or not."
Miss Holmes said the "lack of
tradition at Michigan surprised
me. The students seem mature
and intelligent, and don't go for
silly college rah-rah stunts."
* * *
"I WAS VERY pleased to see
that feeling of brotherhood is
making headway on this campus.
I've been informed that questivis
concerning race and religion ha*Ie

been taken off several student(
questionnaires."
"Of course," she said, "some
discrimination probably still ex-
ists here, but removing the ques-
tions from paper is a forward
step."
One of the things which Miss
Holmes discovered for a "good
shot" while touring the women's
dorms was the co-ed. system of
placing soda bottle tops over their
phone buzzers. The vibration of
the phone buzzer ringing knocks
off the bottle cap.
*, *, * '
"OF COURSE, THIS doesn't tell
them who called when they were
out, but it's a wonderful idea."
Yesterday's snow hampered her
plans to take out-door pictures,
but she intends to try today for
some winter scenes in the arbore-
tum. i
"There is so much to photo-
graph in Ann Arbor that one week
isn't half enough," she said.

Bill was an all-round athlete. He chose
football as his favorite sport, made the
varsity teams at Pomona Junior College
and also at the University of Oregon.

A Theta Chi, Bill enjoyed campus social
life. Found that it eased the pressure of
rugged athletics and his heavy study
schedule in Personnel Management.
