GREAT AT EIGHT:

Wagman Discusses Varied Work
* * * *

By PAUL LADAS
For Frederick H. Wagman, new
Director of the University's Gen-
eral Library, coming to Ann Arbor
means the achievement of his
long ambition to live in a univer-
sity atmosphere.
However, this original intention
was side-tracked when he went to
work at the beginning of World
WarIIfor the Office of Censorship
Examiners in Washington, where
he lived until he came to the Uni-
versity.
* * *
"THIS WORK," he said, "in-
volved intercepting mail between
Germany and neutral countries,
which offered the Allies a tremen-
dous source of intelligence in-
formation."
At the end of the war Wag-
man began work at the Library
of Congress as Director of Per-
sonnel and quickly rose to the
position of Director of Admin-
istration.
"The ironic fact, however, is
that my graduate work was not in
library science," he explained, "but
in Germanics, which I studied at
Amherst College, Columbia Uni-
versity, where I received my doc-
torate, and in Europe.
"I originally planned to teach,
and did for a while at Amherst,
Columbia and the University of
Minnesota, but then I got into the
library work which has become my
life's career."
* * *
WAGMAN was studying at Goet-
tengen University in Germany
when Hitler came to power, cut-
ting his stay there short.
"After eight months I had
enough. The Nazis made aca-
demic life unbearable, pressured
the faculty into distorting fact
to make it conform to their doc-
trines and consistently show-
eredthe students with propa-
ganda."
Having gotten his fill of life un-
der the Nazis, he moved to Switz-
erland where he worked at the
central library of Zurich Univer-
sity.
Wagman had the opportunity to
receive a different impression of
Germany when he revisited it this
summer as a special member of a
new exchange leadership program
sponsored by the German govern-
ment. * *
"I FOUND a new Germany," he
declared, with tremendous ener-'
gy to rebuild itself, and realizing
the importance of our economic
assistance. From the intellectuals
and professional people with whom
I talked, I received the impression
that there was no resentment
against America. The amount of
food consumers' goods had in-
creased from what there was when
the Nazis were there."
The director's hobby conforms
well with his studies and career.
When he has spare time, which
he says isn't often, he likes noth-
ing better than to read books,

WAGMAN ENJOYS HOBBY OF READING

1,

especially Goethe. "I prefer ei-
ther German classics, excluding
Neitzche and Schopenhauer, or
contemporary literature."
As to his impressions of the Uni-
versity'sGeneral Library, one of
the nation's largest, after having
worked at the Library of Congress
he-says "This is a great library
with a great collection in many
fields. These books were carefully,
selected throughout the decades."
He also includes in his praise
of the library a description of
the future library to be built on
North Campus which will ease

the present pressure on cam-
pus libraries.
However, in his analysis of the
University's libraries, it is not dif-
ficult to detect a slight prejudice
for his old place of employment,
the Library of Congress, as he
compares its nine million volumes'
to the University's "meager" mil-
lion and a half.
Wagman's life involves more
than caring for numerous volumes
of books at the University. He is
married and the father of an
eight, year old daughter and a
four year old son.

Air Science Professors First
Meeting 'Highly Successful'

Professors of air science and tac-
tics from four schools in this area
labeled "highly successful" their
first meeting yesterday in North
Hall.
The one-day experimental meet-
ing was attended by Col. Graeme
S. Bond of Michigan State College,
Col. James J. O'Shea of the Uni-
versity of Detroit, Col. James J.
O'Shea ofthe University of De-
troit, Col. Robert L. Matthews of
Wayne University, and Col. Wil-
.liam L. Todd, professor of air sci-
ence and tactics here.
* *f *>
COL. LEWIS H. Kensinger and
Major Curtiss P. Fritsch, Jr., of
Liaison Group F, Air Force ROTC
headquarters, Montgomery, Ala.,
visiting the University this week
to observe the Air Force ROTC's
facilities, also sat in on the discus-
sions.
Discussion and exchange of
ideas for improvement of the
Air Force ROTC program was
the primary purpose of the
meeting.

After Col. Todd outlined the(
present program of academic su-
pervision employed at the Uni-I
versity, he went on to elaborate
various ways in which academic
instruction can be improved
through supervision.
In his talk on the "In-Service
Training Program," Col. Bond told
how Michigan State College main-
tains and improves the quality of
instruction in the Air Force ROTC
program.
The meeting was so valuable
that a similar one will be held in
January at a different school, Col.
Todd said.

1 of the
Baskervilles [
O NCE there was a ghost named Leroy, who lived in a
haunted cottage near a large Eastern university. Every
Friday night, at exactly seven o'clock, he'd slide under the
door of Baskerville Hall; (the main dorm), and give the students
all the answers to next week's quizzes.
This was quite a set up. No studying, no cramming. . . and
straight A's all term long. But then, one Friday, the hour
came and went. No Leroy! And the following week, all the
Baskerville Boys got an F on every quiz!
The Friday after that, all of Baskerville Hall waited ..
and waited. But still no Leroy! In high dudgeon, they set out
to find him. Creeping into Leroy's haunted cottage . . . the
Baskerville Boys found him moaning and groaning. "What's
the matter, Leroy?" they asked.
Leroy wiped a ghostly tear from his ghostly eye. "The
weather's so hot, every time I put on a shirt the collar curls
and wilts. I haven't been out for two weeks!"
In high glee, the Baskerville Boys hurried to the local
Van Heusen dealer and bought a dozen Van Heusen Century
Shirts with the revolutionary soft collar that won't wrinkle
ever. Regular collars, spread collars. $3.95 for whites, $4.95
for colors. "A very good investment," they thought.
Leroy was delighted. He rewarded the boys with all the
answers to the following week's quizzes. Two months later,
all the boys from Baskerville Hall had flunked out. Leroy's
good-looking Van Heusen Century Shirts made him so popular
with the co-eds, that he didn't have time for quizzes or answers.
