have been selected for this has many
difficulties for the amateur which were
not entirely overcome.
No fault could be found with the
staging which was better than is us-
ually seen on the amateur stage. The
many scenes were quickly changed and
the sets although not pretentious,
gained by their simplicity. The cos-
tuming was also to be commended.
On the whole this class in play pro-
duction is to be praised. Only credit
can be given for the picking of a cast
from the ranks of a single class and
the production of such a play. Few
realize the work that is involved in'
preparing productions such as these.
However the publicity committee was
too much on the job; for the audience,
at least many of them, were prepared
for a finished production and when
they only got a good amateur affair
they were disappointed.

tonight until 9 o'clock tomorow
morning declaring themselves still
unready to make response to Hard-
ing's settlement strike offer to the
shopmen, and still unready to make
public the policies which the unions
intend to follow under the circum-
Warren S. Stone, grand chief of the
engineers' brotherhood and chairman
of the meeting, announced at its
close that both these expressions
would be forthcoming tomorrow. Of-
ficials of the seven unions on strike
will reply to the President for them-
selves, Mr. Stone said, while the re-
mainder of the organizations intended
to join in a declaration of the posi-

Senority Still the Issue
While the formal announcement of
the conclusions was withheld, the of-
ficers of the striking shopcraft or-
ganizations were unvarying in hold-
ing out the impression that the Pres-
ident's offer, the height of which is
the proposal to leave the seniority
status question to decisions of the
railway labor board, would meet re-
jection. The purpose of the gather-
ing, as they described it, was merely
to consider what the policy of the
other unions would be.

Rare fird hooks,
The collection of illustrated bird
books on displa'y in the lower corridor
of the University library is from the
library of Mr. A. M. Todd, of Kalama-
zoo. The set to which these books
belong comprises ten titles and 41
volumes. They are sumptuously bound
in tooled green morrocco and illustra-
ted with 2,999 hand-colored plates
made by the famous English ornithol-
ogist, John Gould, from 1831 to the
time of his death in 1881.
Gould was born in 1804, the son of
a gardner at Windsor Castle, and him-
self became a gardener at Ripley Cas-
tle in Yorkshire. Having early ac-

great skill as a taxidermist, he was
appointed in the latter capacity to the
newly formed Zoological society of
London in 1827. In 1830 he received a
valuable collection of birdskins from
the Himalayas, then almost a terra in-
