Act, 'Blue Laws'
The Mayflower Compact, the
Stamp Act and the Declaration of
Independence all are now on dis-
play at the Law Library-in fac-

These are the featured docu-

Legal History," the library's new

lutionary periods.
THE COLONIAL section is lo
cated at the east end of the main

Connecticut, assorted charters and
laws, and other books and papers
have been gathered here for show-
A copy of the country's earli-

The age-old, yet very current

the displays, which are open from

Egg Shell-Shocked

Replacing its annual "bucket
drive" with an educational ap-
proach, the World Student Service
Fund has begun its 1949-1950 cam-
paign to raise funds to aid needy
students overseas.
According to present plans, the
campus will be divided into two
parts. "Organized houses" will in-
clude fraternities, sororities, co-
ops, league houses, and residence
halls. Those unaffiliated students
living in private homes will be de-
signated as "independent inde-

greater than the usual contribu-

In addition to financial sup-
port, WSSF hopes to obtain vol-

ond phase of its program.
During WSSF Week, March 5-
11, an attempt will be made to
contact the "independent indepen-

task will take the combined efforts
of about 4,000 students.

"The faculty of the literary
college is aware of our many
shortcomings. Now that our sit-
uation is becoming somewhat
stabilized, we are making a vig-
orous effort to improve the qual-
ity of our instruction.
"The Standing Committee on
Curriculum and the several de-
partments of the college are re-ex-
amining their courses in order to
make them better instruments for
both general and special educa-
tion. In trying to define and at-
tain these purposes we could profit
reatly by the expression of stu-
dent opinion.
"It has always puzzled me that
Michigan undergraduates showed
so little interest in the one thing
which brought them to Ann Arbor,
namely, the kind of education they
hoped to get.
"It would be fortunate if there
was some organization that would
permit the student body of the
college to formulate their needs
and make constructive proposals
for the improvement of their col-
lege program. The administration
and the faculty of the college will
welcome such suggestions."

through September 1946.

THE VALLEY, in which Mexico
City is located, was one of the
areas where the Indian became
adapted to his American environ-
ment. Their civilization grew there
for thousands of years and reached
its climax in the Aztec empire at
the time Cortez arrived, accord-
ing to Griffin.
Four periods, the formative,
classical, Tula-Mazapan and
Aztec, mark the cultural develop-
ment of early Mexico. Ceramic
fragments representing each per-
iod are displayed.
