An announcement was made on
Thursday to the effect that the gener-
al and revolving drain funds appro-
priated by the board of supervisors
for a period of 12 months had been
overdrawn in nine months.
It was thought, following the meet-
ng of the finance committee of the
board of supervisors yesterday, that
money would be borrowed for the
purpose of financing the county for
he remainder of the fiscal year, and
hat it would be paid out of the bud-
gelt for 1926.
It was learned that the supervisors
went so far as to draw pay for work

was only in session for ten days, each
upervisor drew pay for 12 days, and
vas paid for full time whether he was

Discussion Gains Momentum

Dayton, Tenn., July 10.-Twelve
jurors who will try the case of John

Tennessee law prohibiting the teach-
ing of theories of evolution in the
public schools of the state, were chos-
en today. The first day of the trial
moved quickly on its way, bringing
University Librarian Contrasts Card
Index System of U. S. With
Mr. W. W. Bishop, University 11-
.brarian, gave an illustrated lecture,
"Some European Libraries," at 5
o'clock yesterday in Natural Science
auditorium. Mr. Bishop has spent
several years in Europe and has made
a particular study of the best known
European libraries.
Mr. Bishop discussed first the Vat-
ican library at Rome, then the library
at Florence, which contains eleven
rooms exhibiting the history of books,
and also the most complete collection
of the specimens of early, printing.
Next he spoke of the library at Milan,
the San March library- at Venice, the
national library of France at Paris,
which has the largest library of
printed books and one of the greatest
collections of rare manuscripts in the
world. Of the English libraries, he
discussed the British Museum library
at London, second largest in the
world, the University of Cambridge
library, and the Oxford library.
"The Cambridge library." Bishop
declared, "is one of. the most interest-
in the world, the Magdalin section
therg containing the actual book col-
,ection of Samuel Pepys. The Ox-
ford library was founded in 1607 and
Is distinctive in that it is kept almost
exactly as established."
The, cataloging system in the Brit-
ish libraries is a contrast to the card
system in -this country, and it consists.
of pasting printed slips into a ledger.
The finest example of true Gothic
art, Mr. Bishop believes, is to be found
in the John Rylands library in Man-.
chester, England. It also contains
the Spencer library, which was the
most famous collection iz the world
at the time it was presented.

Twelve of the twenty prospective
jurors examined became jurors with-

tions to each man, but used only two
of its three challenges.
No session of the court will be held
tomorrow. The defense asked for a
day in which to confer over points
they desire to express in their con-
tention that scientific testimony will
show that the theories of evolution
and the story of divine creation as
told in the Bible are not conflicting.
Judge John T. Ralston, presiding,
announced that the court would open
at 9 o'clock, continue to a recess at
11 o'clock, and reconvene at 1:301

Attorney General Stewart, replying
to Darrow's announcement that the
defense would' insist on introducing
Bible students to give their views of
the Tennessee law, said that the pros-
ecution would take the position that
they were not competent to bring into
the case to testify as to what the case
of evolution is, or involve the Bible
or any thing of that sort.
