Delegate From Coal Fields Gives
Views On Present M'iners 'Strike

(By James C. Frey)
One of the most interesting dele-
gates attending the American Library
association conference who visited
Ann Arbor yesterday was Miss Inez
Crandell, who has charge of the pub-
lic library in DuBois, Pa.
Miss Crandell is interesting because
her library is located right in the
heart of the Pennsylvania soft coal
fields where the miners have been on
a strike for over a year. The major-
ity of these miners are foreigners and

Washington, June 29-Recommen-
dations that the agricultural produc-,
ers of the United States be "empow-
ered to develop co-operative associa-
tions to hasten the standardization ofa
agricultural production, improve the
distributive processes, and reduce
their costs" formed the foremost con-
clusion of the joint congressional'
commission of agricultural inquiry in
its completed report of marketing and
distribution made public tonight.
The commission stats it believes{
that the situation of the agricultural
producers can be materially improv-
ed by a standardization of produc-
tion of crops in producing centers in
order to permit economic selection,
grading and preparation of commodi-
ties in the producers' local mar-

Miss Crandell says that they are a
most fascinating class of people to
work with.
"Because so many of them are for-
eigners you must not think that they
do not read a good class of literature.
Many of these children whose parents
can neither speak nor write English
read the best class of literature.
Many of them read better stuff than
the children whose parents were born
and raised in the United States. Many
of the older people, too, have taken
to reading. You would be surprised
to see the class of books that they
read. You must not think that be-
cause they are miners and on a strike
that they are bolshevik. Most of the
miners in our soft coal district are
good citizens, those that can read,
read the very best class of literature.
There is really hope for these people
if they read good books."
When asked how long she thought
the strike would last she said that
she had no idea, but she hoped that
it would soon be settled because there
were so many little children that come
into the library every day who will
need warm clothes and shoes during
the next winter.-

Self-Sacrifice and Co-operation Re-
sults of Grilling Work in
Athletics, Says Coach
"I see in college athletics vast op-
portunities for character building as
well as body building,' said Fielding
H. Yost, director of intercollegiate
athletics, speaking yesterday after-
noon on "Athletics and Their Rela-
tion to College Life," in the Natural
Science auditorium.
Coach Yost went on to say, "Inter-
collegiate athletics should foster and
develop fine feeling and friendship
between the contestants."
In going farther into his subject of
the relation of athletics to college
life, Mr. Yost said, "Boys go to cl-
lege, or are sent to college by their
parents, primarily to obtain a better
education and to become better fitted
for life. It is only insofar as ath-
letics contribute to this main purpose
of a college education that they mer-
-it the conspicuous place they now oc
cupy in our schools. Because of this
it is essential that universities and
collegeshexercise careful control over
their athletic programs in order that
athletic contests may not become
ends in themselves, but, rather, that
they/ continue as contributory fac-
tors to education's main purpose of
fitting men for life,"
Teaches Self-Sacrifice
Coach Yost went on to show that,
in addition to securing harmonious
bodily development, a well planned
and well organized program of ath-
letics teaches many lessons that are
a valuable part of a college man's
preparation for life. "The sacrifice
of self to a group or institution for
the attainment if a common goal,"
continued Mr. Yost, "is the first les-
son taught by athletics. This means
co-operation ,team play, loyalty and
service. The qualities of determina-
tion, will power, persistence, and
courage, both physical and moral, can
nowhere be better learned than on the
athletic field. Self - consciousness,
self control, alertness, aggressive-
ness, obedience, reliability, friendli-I
ness, leadership, mental and moral
poise, resourcefulness, decision, -
these qualities and many more are
brought out in marked degree by ath-
letics. Furthermore, the ability to
summon all of one's forces, physical,
mental, and moral, to work together
in a smooth co-ordination for the ac-
complishment of a given task, and the
initiative necessary to direct these
forces, are attributes very strikingly
developed by athletics."1
United Student BodyI
Turning to the more intangible ef-
fects of athletics upon University life,
Mr.Yost said, "Furthermore, athletics
bring the entire student body to-
gether and focus the attention ofI
every individual on a definite, com-
mon object more than does any other
activity or interest of the Univer-
sity. The inspirational value of such
an experience as this - the feeling to-
be a part of a great throng and of
sharing with each other member oft
it a very definite common interest -
is tangible and not measureable, but
is none the less real." x

Transfers Must See Dean
Students from other colleges and
universities, who wish to have their
credits transferred to the records'of
the Literary college in the Univer-
sity, have been requested to consult
Dean John R. Effinger of the College
of Literature, Science, and the Arts.
The dean's office has set a time
limit of July 15, within which time
this matter should be adjusted.


Henry A. (Ernie) Vick, '22, captain
of the 1922 Varsity baseball team, who
was also chosen on Walter Camp's
All-American 1922 football team, for
his first choice as the best center in
American gridiron circles, today play-
ed his first game in the major base-
ball leagues, when he caught for the
St. Louis Cardinals against the Pitts-
burg National league, the Cardinals
winning by a score of 8 to 5. Vick
caught the entire game for his team.
During the three years of Vick's
Varsity experience at the University,
hel proved one of the steadiest cogs in
the Wolverine nines. He was especial-
ly clever behind the plate, his work
on the receiving-end of Michigan bat-
teries attracting the attention of not
only Big Ten and other'college coach-
es but of major league scouts as well.
At bat "Ernie" held up his end in
a commendable manner, his timely
slugging often aiding the Wolverines
to count victories.
Vick was not only a diamond star,
but achieved fame for his work oni
the gridiron as pivot man on the Mich-
igan elevens of the past three years.
During the Minesota game last fall,
he was largely instrumental in the
28 to 0 victory. Due to injuries Dunne
was unable to plap in that contest,
and Vick stepped in as acting captain.
Five minutes after the first whistle
had blown, he succeeded in fathom-
ing and disrupting the famous Minne-
sota shift, which the year before had
been a cause of terror to Conference
In the game against )ittsburg yes-
terday, "Ernie" caught three men
napping at bases and kept his batting
average up to a good standing.
