Study Begins
On'U'Book
Circulatioll
Data is now being collected to
determine the circulation of li-
brary books according to the class
year of the user, which will aid
General Library officials in plan-j
ning a new Undergraduate Library.
In addition, the results obtain-
ed will be used to determine whe-
ther the Library should offer
greater student access to the
stacks. At present, the stacks are
available to students only on Sun-
days, or during the week if the
student has a note from a profes-
sor.
The information, which will be
tabulated later this year, is being
secured by requesting that stu-
dents and faculty members using
books designate their year or sta-
tus on the circulation cards.
Under consideration for the
past year, the proposed Undergra-
du'ate Library is now in the plan-
ning stage. The program is under
investigation by the Advisory Com-
mittee on Undergraduate Library,
composed of members of the Lit-
erary College Steering Committee
and four other schools

'U' Institute Begins
Twin Stndy Program

Dean Goes A'stumping

Scott Plans Art Exhibit

By ERNEST THEODOSSIN
With the hope of determining
to what extent certain of the hu-
man abilities are inherited, the
Institute of Human Biology has
undertaken a project in the study
and scientific measurement of
twins.
"We are interested in a num-
ber of abilities, including word ap-
titude, ability to handle numbers,
and perceptual abilities," stated
H. Eldon Sutton, member of the
University of Michigan Twin
Study. "In addition, we are trying
to determine to what extent chem-
ical levels of the blood and cer-
tain psychological traits are in-
herited."
The twin project is being spon-
sored for a three year period by
the McGregor Fund of Detroit. The
project committee hab been meas-
uring twins for about a year and
should be finished in January.
Then, intensive work will be need-
ed to examine' and evaluate the
data.
Eighty Sets
"We have been working with
about 80 sets of twins," reported
Sutton. "The twins are all of about
junior high school age; none are
younger than that, although a few
are older."
"The reason for choosing this
particular age group is that the
development of psychological abil-
ities has leveled off or reached a
maximum by this time," Sutton
went on. "Also, twins are general-
ly living together at this age and
are not. separated."
About half of the twins are iden-
tical and the other half frater-
nal twins.. "Fraternal twins de-
velop from two eggs, while identi-
cal twins develop from a single
fertilized egg," explained Sutton.
"Each twin set contains members
of the same sex. We are not work-
ing with brother and sister sets."
Most of the twins come from
neighboring twons and cities, in-
cluding -some from Detroit. "We
have received excellent coopera-
tion thus far," Sutton said.
"We try to explain to the twins
that the study will be beneficial
to them also. They get an oppor-
tunity to learn something more
about themselves and, in addition,

receive dental checks, X-rays, and
a free eye-examination," Sutton
said.
"We have been giving each twin
five dollars at the completion of
the tests. And, of course, at that
age they'll do anything to get a
day away from school," he added
with a smile.
Scientific Measuring
All of the scientific measuring is
done at the University. The twins
are picked up by field workers and
taken to and from their homes.
The measurments consist of two
days testing in the institute, plus
several hours of additional testing
in the school.
The complete measurment
schedule generally extends over a
period of several months, Sutton
explained that twins are never
forced to make tests.
About the results thus far, Sut-
ton said, "We have done very lit-
tle analysis. We are finding that
there is a measurable contribution
of heredity to many of the psy-
chological traits."
"The project's present aim is to
determine what factors are con-
trolled by heredity. To find out
'how'these factors are controlled
will take additional testing of a
different type," said Sutton. "But
first one must know exactly what
to measure."
. Heredity Not Everything
Sutton cautioned that "heredity
is not everything. An individual's
genetic potential plus his environ-
mental surroundings determine
these psychological factors."
While results are not specific
now, by spring the project com-
mittee should know a great deal
more about what the final results
will be.
Sutton, who received his doctor-
ate in chemistry at the University
of Texas, heads the nine-man staff
working on the twin project. The
staff also cooperates with other
scientific and medical depart-
ments at the University.

A Michigan Favorite For,64 Years!

Another date dear to the hearts of all football fans is September 29,
1442. It was on this date, according to the eminent historian Sigafoos,
that a sixteen year old lad named Christopher Columbus tried out
for the football team at Genoa Tech. He failed to make the team
because he was too light. (He weighed at that time only 12 pounds.)
And why, you ask, is this date - September 29, 1442 -so dear to
the hearts of all football fans? Because young Columbus was so
heartbroken at not making the team that he ran away to sea. And
if that hadn't happened, he never would have discovered America.
And if Columbus hadn't discovered America, the world never would
have discovered tobacco. And if the world hadn't discovered tobacco,
football fans never would have discovered Philip Morris - which, as
every fan knows, is the perfect companion to football. As Sigafoos,
the eminent historian, says, "Land's sakes, I can't even imagine
football without Philip Morris. I'd sooner go to a game without my
raccoon coat than without my neat, rich tobacco-brown snap-open
pack of mild vintage Philip Morris Cigarettes which come in regular
or king-size at prices young and old can afford. Land's sakes!"
The end of football in Europe came with the notorious "Black Cox
Scandal" of 1587, in which Ed Machiavelli, one of the Pisa mob,
paid off the University of Heidelberg Sabres to throw the champion-
ship game to the Chartres A. and M. Gophers. It was a mortal blow
to football on the continent.
But the game took hold in the American colonies and thrived as it
had never thrived before. Which brings us to another date that
