Local Campaign Helped
Refurnish Depleted Stacks

In 1945 the library of the Uni-
versity of the Philippines was re-
duced to rubble.
In Manila where once had stood
stately campus buildings there
was only the stark nakedness of
the devastation which the war had
brought.
Today, in a small suburb, stands
an imposing modern building, the
Joseph Ralston Hayden Memorial
Library, a reminder of Spring,
1947, when University students
"pitched in" in a project that was
then unique in its character and
is now a living tribute of the Uni-
versity.

HAYDEN MEMORIAL LIBRARY - IN AMANILLA SUBURB - RECOVERY FROM WARTIME
DEVASTATION

a one hundred thousand volume
collection was thirty or forty bat-
tle scarred books.
The photographs on this
page arrived at The Daily yes-
terday accompanied by a letter
from Robert J. LaPlante '48
now a diplomatic courier, tra-
veling through the Philippines,
who was head of the Sigma Chi
Committee in the University
drive. LaPlante writes of having
spoken to Prof. Gabriel A. Ber-
nardo, the librarian who drafted
the plan for the building, which
has earned for Michigan "an
honored position in the Far
East," LaPlante feels.
The local drive, part of a na-
tional campaign to aid the strick-
en university, was especially ap-
propriate at Michigan, as the two
colleges have always been closely
related. The students had voted
to adopt the University of Philip-
pines as a "sister university" only
the year before.
THEN, TOO, one of the key fac-
tors in the growth of its govern-
ment and educational system was
Joseph Hayden, who served as
vice-governor of the islands in the.
'30's. Hayden, a long time member
of the University's political sci-
ence department spent several
years on the Manila campus as an
exchange professor. He died short-
ly after participating in the liber-
ation of the Philippines as a mem-
ber of Gen. Douglas MacArthur's
staff, and in the planning of the
cultural reconstruction of the
war-torn area.

MARLENE SCHSULHAUSER
* * *
Engineering
Council Led
By A JWoman
Marlene Schulhauser, '53E, has
become acting president of the
Engineering Council, succeeding
John Merow, '52E, who resigned
because of other activities.
Miss Schulhauser, 20 years old
and a native of San Francisco,
Calif., is believed to be the first
woman to serve as president of
the council.
She was chosen vice-president
of the council at the last elec-
tions, and stepped into the~ higher
post when Merow, elected chair-
man of the Joint Judiciary, re-
signed. Merow is also business
manager of Gargoyle.
Majoring in civil engineering,
Miss Schulhauser is also managing
editor of the Michigan Technic,
monthly publication of the en-
gineering college.
The Engineering Council hand-
les many of the student activities
in the engineering college, and
sponsors the Engineering Honor
Council. This group is in charge
of the honor system which gov-
erns exams in the college.

SIRIUS:
Eastern Star
Illuminates
January Sky
Sirius, a star once worshipped
by the Egyptians because it pro-
vided a warning that floods were
due on the Nile, is now shining
brightly in the eastern sky.
It is the brightest spot in the
January sky and a part of Canis
Major, the Great Dog. Prof. Hazel
M. Losh of the astronomy depart-
ment believes the Egyptians must
have regarded this star as ren-
dering a service like that of a dog
warning his master of danger.
"The other stars of this con-
stellation are overshadowed by
Sirius but they do form a con-
figuration which is generally pic-
tured as a dog standing on its hind
feet and facing the unmistakable
constellation of Orion. The daz-
zling Sirius is a blazing spot in
the mouth of the dog."
Easy to pick out will be the
three stars in a row in the belt of
Orion, the hunter. Sirius, along
with the rest of the constellation
of Canis Major, rises in the south-
east about 7 p.m.
Prof. Losh regards the January
display of constellations as "just
about the most beautiful of the
whole year."
