ations, according-to the leader.
In a statement Professor Kelsey
said: "The University of Michigan
expedition to the Near East has just
completed a program of two years of
work which was outlined with the ad-
vice and assistance of, the late Presi-
dent Marion L. Burton in 1923. It has
conducted excavations either inde-
pendently or in co-operation with oth-
er organizations in Asia Minor, Egypt,
and Northern Africa. It has been for-
tunate in the choice of sites for excav-
ation, and the importance of the dis-
everies has surpassed expectations.
"In Asia Minor the work was con-
centrated upon the site of Antioch of
Pisidia. This city was famous in the
annals of the early church as the place
where the Apostle Paul definitely
turned "to the Gentiles, as narrated in
the 13ti chapter of the book of Acts.
The most important discovery was a
mosiac floor of a great church of the
Fourth Century A. D. Greek inscrip-
tions in the mosaic floor established
the date as about 375 A. D. Since
this was the metropolitan church of
the region, it was perhaps the descen-
dant of the congregation formed un-
der the preaching of Paul and Barn-
abas. Other discoveries at Antioch
comprised important pagan structures
of the first three centuries of the
Christian era. There were brought to
light the ruins of a temple dedicated
to the Emperor Augustus which was
probably standing when Paul and
Barnabas visited Antich abut the mid-
dle .of the first century A. D.; also of
a triumphal arch which formed a mon-
umental entrance to a sacred precinct
in which the temple stood, and of a
monumental city gate erected at the
beginning of the third century. The
digging on this site was in charge of;
Prof. D. M. Robinson, of Johns Hop-
kins university, who was assisted by
a large staff.
"The excavation in Egypt was on
the site of the Karanis, in the Fayoum.
This- city flourished in the centuries
immediately preceeding and following
the birth of Chirst. The staff in
cahrge of the excavation consisted of
'Prof. A. E. R. Boak, of the Univer-
sity of Michigan; James L. Starkey
and Samuel Yeivin, both of the Uni-
versity College, London; and Orlando
W. Qualley, research fellow of the Un-
iversity of Michigan in the Classics.
Ancient Karanis was represented by
a large mound. Though in one season
the Michigan expedition could remove
only the upper layers of a compara-

of Republican Party With

tively small portion of the mound, the
finds were extraordinarly rich. These
comprise papyri, perfectly preserved
glass vessels, objects of household fur-
niture, many types of basketry and
woven fabrics, and tools and imple-
ments connected with various occu-
pations. A bakery was found with
piles of thin loaves of bread, dry and
crumbling, but still retaining the
shape which they had when the bak-
ers abandoned the city. All these
finds date from the second to the fifth
centuries A. D. The dating was de-
termined in part by the papyri and in,
part by the coins, of which more than
3,000 were found. Most .of the coins:
will be added to the numismatic col-
lection of the University of Mich-


"The expedition joined with the
archaeological society of Washington,
of which the Hon. Robert Lansing is
president, and with the University of
Rochester, in attacking a large prob-
lem of excavation upon the site .of an-
cient Carthage. Here discoveries be-
gan to be made the very first day in
an area consecrated to the Phoeni-
cian goddess Tanit. Of this divinity
very little is known, but the literary
tradition is that infants were sacrafic-
ed to the divinities in the group to
which she belongs. The excavation
brought to light 17 dedicatory in-
scriptions in the Punic language to Tan-
it and Baal-Hammon, and more than
300 alter-shaped monuments erect-
ed in connection with the burial of
urns containing bones and ashes of
the dead. These urns are earthern
jars, generally having two handles. In
the earlier period they are often de-
corated with painting.
More than 1,100 urns were taken
from this excavation, and when the1
contents have been passed through
laboratory treatment it is expected
that they will throw new light on
the sacrifices offered to Phoenecians
divinities. The urns already exam-
ined in most cases contain the bones
of young children, and many of themt
have also strings of beads, amulets,
and other minor objects belonging toe
the children. Sometimes the bones oft
one or two small birds have beent
found in the same urns. Many months
will be required before a full reportt
can be prepared upon this material.'
"The work of the Michigan expedi-
tion to the Near East has been made
possible by the generous gift of at
friend of the University who doesE
not permit his name to be made pub-t
lic. This gift has made it possible
for the University to undertake ex-t
cavations in the Near East, and for thet
first time Michigan now is able to
reckon in a class with Harvard, Yale,
Princeton, Chicago, and the other un-
iversities which had previously un-
dertaken work of this kind."

of Mathematics Professor in
Talk Here
"The mapping of the Great Lakes
reflects the history of America," stated
Prof. L. C. Karpinski of the mathe-
matics department in his lecture on
"Mapping the Great Lakes" yesterday
afternoon at the Natural Science au-
ditorium, the first of the series on the
Summer session program. He tracedt
the mapping of the lakes from the
earliest 'remaining records, showing
the changes due to continued explora-
tions in a group of slides.
Professor Krapinski explained that
the "subjects of maps and mathemat-
ics are not foreign," and proved thatt
astrologers and mathematicions con-t
tributed greatly to the accuracy ofi
early maps. One great error, that ofc
the longitude of the Mediterreaneana
sea, existed until late in the 17th cen-
tury, and it was not until it was cor-
rected that the Great Lakes were giv-3
en their correct positions on maps.
Many early maps were determined
In part by the accounts of Indians of
the territories in which no white manl
had ever been. As late as 1635 onet
map contained no -indication of the
Great Lakes and as late as 1839 there
were maps published on which the
Great Lakes were grossly mispropor-
tionate. In 1703 the first map wasa
made which was determined by the
results of astronomical observations,
and now all maps are the outcome of
these observations.

Alumni News In Brief


Hawley Tapping, 'field secretary for
the Alumni association, leaves Ann
Arbor Thursday to attend a meeting
of the Second District of Michigan
Alumni clubs to be held in Philadel-
phia beginning June 27, at the Union
League club. One of the spexdal fea-
tures of this gathering is an outing.
to be held at Swarthmore. The Sec-
ond District embraces clubs which are
formed in Eastern Pennsylvania,
Southern New Jersey, and the South
Atlantic states. The cities to be rep-
resented by clubs include Philadelphia,
Harrisburg, Washington, D. C., Balti-
more and Newport News.
The field secretary's office of the
Alumni association will handle the
football ticket applications for all U.
of M. clubs this year. This service to
the alumni succeeded in obtaining
tickets for 25 clubs last year, handl-
ing $25,00. This system enables the
clubs to sit' in blocks by themselves.
Although they do not get better seats
by the process than by applying in-
dividually, they have the advantage
of being sure of their seats. The U.
of M. club of Detroit is the first group
to signify their desire for block seats
this year and will send in their blanks
next week to Mr. Tapping's office.
' Seven Michigan undergraduates,

members of the football squad, are
aiding the U. of M. club of Detroit in
publishing their annual -directory,
which includes the names of all the
members of this organization. Among
the athletes who are gaining summer
employment by doing this work are
Carl Stamman, Victor Domhoff, and
Tom Edwards.
At the annual meeting of the Alum-
ni association held in Hill auditorium
on June 13 the election of officers took
place. Two directors, Allan B. Pond
of Chicago and Prof. Ralph W. Aigler
of the Law school, were reelected and
the third man, William A. Comstock of
Detroit was elected to fill the place
vacated by Cfiarles Chapin. In a'later
meeting of the directors Mason P.
Rumney wes elected president of the
Alumni association and Emory J. Hyde
of Ann Arbor was made first vice-pres-
ident. Dr. G. Carl Huber of Ann Ar-
bor is second vice-president and Louis
P. Jocelyn, also of Ann Arbor, was
elected secretary.
