Appointment Of William Worrell
Adds Noted Scholar To Faculty

New Minister Is
don fronted With
Chinese Troubles
F- ° ,

The appointment of William H.
Worrell as associate professor in
Semitics has been received with much
satisfaction by scholars in the Hum-
anistic field. His work had previous-
ly brought distinction to the Univer-
sity and his appointment will row af-
ford the campus further opportunities
for researches as well as for advanc-
ed instruction in Arabic and other
languages of the Near East.
Professor Worrell was born, in Tol-
edo, April 28, 1879. He graduated
from the classical course of the Uni-
versity' of Michigan .in 1903. After-
wards he studied at the Universities
of Berlin, Leipzig, and Strassborg
He received the degree of bachelor of
divinity from the Hertford Theolog-
ical seminary, and of doctor of philos..
ophy from the University of Strass-
Mr. Worrell commenced work of
teaching as an instructor in Semitics
at the University of Michigan in 1908,
but after two years became a member
of the faculty of the Hartford Theol-
ogical seminary, then of the Ken-
riedy School of Missions in Hartford,
where he had the rank of professor.
Professor Worrell's work as a schol-
ar has won international recognition
in two lines. He has carried forward
scientific investigation in phonetics
especially as applied to the languages,
of the Near East, and has also contri-

through publication of Ethiopie and
Coptic languages. In 1916 he publish-
ed a Coptic version of the Psalms
from an interesting manuscript in
the Freer collection. This was fol-
lowed in 1923 by the publication of
two Coptic Homilies and a magical
text, from manuscripts partly in the
Freer collection and in part in the'
British Museum.
Since there was no suitable Coptic
type in the United States for these
monographs, Professor Worrell made
designs for two fonts of Coptic type,
which were cast in Boston. The types
have been admired and highly com-
mended by Coptic scholars. The two
monographs are published together
as Volume X of the Humanistic series
of the University of Michigan studies.
The other publications of Professor
Worrell are distributed in a wide
range of journals. At the present time
he is carrying through the press a
volume containing fifty letters and
documents written in Hebrew char-
acters but largely in the Arabic lang-
uage. These range in date from the
tenth to the fifteenth century and are
of much historical inte-rest. The or-
iginal documents are loaned by the
Freer gallery in Washington to the
University 9f Michigan for publica-
tion and their interpretation is a
task of great difficulty. They were

found with a

large mass:

of similar

buted to the literature of his subjecti material in Cairo.

Party of More Than 100 Will Leave
Here This Morning to Inspect
Ford Motor Planlt
More than 100 students had signed
up yesterday afternoon for the second1
excursion of the Summer session,
which leaves for the Ford Motor com-
pany at Highlan'd Park this morning
at 8 o'clock. The party is meeting at
the corner of Packard and State1
streets where it will board a special,
car for Detroit.
It is planned to arrive at the Ford
plant at 10:45 and spend from then
until noon on an inspection tour. At,
this time the pa'rty will go to the
Highland Park high school, a few
blocks away, where they will have
lunch. After lunch the excursion will
proceed downtown to the Detroit pub-
lic library, where they will take an-
other inspection tour. It is expected
that the entire trip will be finished
by 3 o'clock. '
Mr. Carlton Wells of the rhetoric
department, who is conducting the
trip, has estimated the maximum cost
at $2.75, including the lunch at the
Highland Park high school.

Professor Reed noted that Los AD

pealed to their state legislature for a
amendment creating a metropolita
district around Detroit.
"A solution can be arrived at t
the creation of a new area," suggeste
Professor Reed. "What we need is
