University Press Issues


Publications During Summer

An example of constructive cross-
word puzzle work is to be found in
the activities of the authors of a re-
cent publication of the University
Press. Prof. Benjamin D. Merritt,
formerly a member of the University
archeology department, and Allen D.
West were the collaborators of the
book "The Athenian Assessment of
425 B.C.," for which the unusual re-
search was done.
The publication concerns the re-
production of an inscription of a de-
cree of the Athenian assembly, which
described a new rate of taxation to
be paid by cities then subservient to
the Greek capital. The inscription it-
self is incomplete, existing now in 43
fragments and representing only
about half of the original inscrip-
tion. It was in piecing together these
fragments and filling in the missing
parts, by their knowledge of Athen-
ian law andrhistory, that the two
writers found themselves doing not
only cross-word but also "jig-saw"
puzzle work.
About 100 pages in length, the book

contains two very elaborate plates of
the original inscription. Volume 33
of the Humanistic Series being pub-
lished by the University, this book is
considered to be probably the besi
work on the inscription, which in it-
self is one of the important bases for
historical facts on the Grecian king-
"The Intellectual Milieu of John
Dryden," written by Prof. Louis I.
Bredvold of the English department,
is another of the books to be pub-
lished during the summer months by
the University Press. Volume two in
the Language and Literature Series,
it was issued Aug. 1.
Prof. Charles L. Jamison of the
School of Business Administration is
the author of Volume VI, number 3,
of the Michigan Business Studies
Series. The pamphlet, 49 pages in
size, is entitled "Trading On the
Equity by Industrial Companies."
"The Sacred Edifices of the Batak
-Sumatra," is the title of a book
written by Prof. Henry H. Bartlett,
head of the botany department, as

Temperatures above 100 again were
commonplace as cloudless skies per-
mitted the sun to make an unob-
structed sweep of farm lands.
Missouri, which with Kansas has
born the brunt of the current heat
wave, again was the focal point of the
attack. Maryville led the state with al
temperature of 113. Jefferson record-
ed 107. Close behind came Missouri,
Kansas City, Kirkville, all with 106.
Rain accompanied the cool wave at
Sioux Falls, Yankton, Mitchell, Brook-
ings, and Watertown, South Dakota.
Temperatures ranged from 55 degrees
at Aberdeen to 62 at Pierre. Almost an
inch of rain fell at Watertown.
For the second consecutive day the
temperature at Springfield, Ill., ex-
ceeded 107. The official thermometer
recorded 108 degrees, half a degree
above the previous all-time degree of
107.5 set Wednesday.
High humidity added to the discom-
fort of the 94-degree heat at Chicago,

four singles and scoring once him-
self. The Tiger hitting also included
a triple by Goose Goslin, doubles by
Jo-Jo White, who continued his streak
with two hits for three, Bill Rogell,
Hank Greenberg, and a brace of two-
baggers by Marvin Owen.

Thus did Dr. William G. Carr, di-
rector of research for the National
Education Association, open his dis-
cussion yesterday on "Some Policies
of the N.E.A.," as the concluding
speech of the education conference
series sponsored by the School of Edu-
Although not openly expressing this
belief in the power of the N.E.A., Dr.
Carr pointed to many and varied
features of public school activities
which he declared were "urged and
agitated for" in past years by the
N.E.A. Among these, he pointed out,-
were the creation of the U.S. Bureau
ofg Education and Federal partici-
pation in school finance, the latter1
being first designed to assist in re-
habilitation of schools in the South-
ern states following the Civil War.
N.E.A. Well Started
Thus, in its comparatively short
existence, (it was founded in 1859)
the NE.A. had already seen adoption
of one of its first principles, Dr. Carr
said. "At the present time," he con-
tinued, "Congress has put into effect
some of the principles which were
this year presented to it in a six-point
program of the N.E.A."
After offering this evidence that'
N.E.A. proposals were still a "power-
ful force for influencing the work of
American schools," Dr. Carr turned
to a presentation of the association's
"rather continuous" advocacy of leg-
islation regulating child labor. The
N.E.A., he said, has stood for a con-
stitutional amendment on this point.
In addition, he pointed out, "special
attention has been given, through
various committees and through the
Department of Special Education, to
the needs of children underprivileged
economically, mentally, or socially."
Cites Equal Opportunity
As "one fundamental policy of gen-
eral social and economic importance
which the association has supported,"
Dr. Carr cited the provision of a
reasonable equality of educational op-
portunity throughout the nation.
"In my opinion," Prof. C. O. Da-
vis, secretary of the School of Ed-
ucation, said yesterday, "this year's7
education conference series has
been a most successful one."
"It has," he said, "a unique
function in the education school,
in that it permits students who
would not normally hear profes-
sors whose courses they were not
taking to enjoy such an oppor-
"In addition," Professor Davis
said, ,"those who attended the con-
ferences to hear their instructors
speak would, in many cases, have
the material of these courses sup-
plemented for them by the

Highlights of President Roosevelt's

"In one year and five months the

"There is no lack of confidence

Baseball Title
In Playoff Game
The Principals, led by Captain V. C.
Hicks, won the Education Club base-
ball title yesterday in a playoff game,
defeating the Educational Research
team, 6 to 4.
Hicks led the Principals in a closely
played game with three hits for three
runs in three times at bat, but the
pitching of Everett Bekken was the
deciding factor.
The Principals piled up a 6 to 3
lead in the first five innings, but a
one-man rally by Danny Rose, former
Wolverine court star, in the sixth
ended the scoring. Rose dragged a
hit along third, and then stole second,

U. S. Envoy In
Berlin Upholds
Free Thought
Criticizes Nazi Ideals By
Praising Democracy Of
Washington, Jefferson
BERLIN, 'Aug. 9 - (A) - United
States Ambassador William E. Dodd,
in an address in this Nazi Capital, up-
held democratic ideals of govern-
ment, typified by Thomas Jefferson,
as being still valid and worthy of
The Ambassador spoke to the grad-
uates of the American School. The
address obviously was designed to
remind American boys and girls liv-
ing in a nation which finds democ-
racy wanting that the theory of free
political thought is not yet outworn.
"If I were a student in high school
or college in these revolutionary days
I would endeavorto. reassess:.the so-
cial ideals upon which the United
States was founded," Dodd said. "I
would renew my studies of the origi-
nal thinkers of those critical years,
when . Franklin, Washington, and
their co-workers freed the- Thirteen
Colonies and founded the complex
free society which so greatly influ-
enced the modern world."
Emphasizing Jefferson's insistence
on simplicity in life, the Ambassador
attributed to Jefferson a belief that
"parade and show have been over-
done; men must think of their ca-
pacity to serve their fellows, not of
opportunities to parade themselves."
Concluding, Dodd said:
"If you troubled young folks will
discipline, your minds like Jefferson,
learn the realities of the past like
Franklin and make sacrifices like
Washington in your personal work for
the public good, we shall have a new
era of democracy - a country to
which all eyes will turn again with

City To Issue $345,000
Ii Bonds For Financing

To Pay_30 Per Cent
Pumping Station, Disposal
Plant, Trunk Line Are
Included In Plans
The $345,000.00 sewage disposal
plant for Ann Arbor, together with
an ordinance accepting the aid of the
Federal government in financing the
plant, was approved at its third read-
ing last night at a special meeting of
the Common Council called byMayor
Robert A. Campbcll for the consid-
tration of these measures.
The motion was passed unanimous-
ly by the Council after the third read-
ing. It was made by Alderman Wil-
fred B. Shaw in the absence of Alder-
man R. M. Burr, chairman of the or-
dinance committee.
It is estimated by the engineers who
will be in charge of the construction
of the plant that the cost will be in
the neighborhood of $345,000.00. The
ordinance approving the plant auth-
orizes a bond issue to this amount
and in addition the Federal Emer-
gency Administration of Public
Works will aid the project by paying
30 per cent of the cost of labor and

When the amount of the national
government's 30 per cent has been
definitely established, the money will

ifications which have been drawn up
by the engineering firms of Shoe-
craft, Drury and McNamee, and Ay-
ers, Lewis, Norris and May under the
direction of the Department of Pub-
lic Works.
It is made clear in the ordinance
that the bonds to be sold to finance
the construction of the plan will not
be a general indebtedness on the city
of Ann Arbor but shall be payable
solely from the revenue derived from
the operation of the plant. The rates
for services furnished by the plant
will be levied on each householder
on the basis of the quantity of water
50 Per Cent Of Water Bills
The rates to be charged will be 50
per cent of the total water bills of the
city, prorated among the users of the
sewer on the basis of their water bills
during the fall and winter quarters.
Payment may be enforced by shutting
off the water supply.
It is estimated that such a charge
will be sufficient to provide for the
payment of interest and principal on
the bonds when they mature, and also
to defray the expenses of adminis-
tration, operation, and maintenance
of the plant.
Another Bobby
Jones Enters'
Golf Title Play
HINSDALE, Ill., Aug. 9. - (') -
Bobby Jones, of Detroit, and Fred
Haas, a six-footer from New Orleans,
will battle 36 holes tomorrow for the
Western Junior golf championship.
Upholding all the traditions of his
famous namesake from Atlanta, the
Detroit Bobby Jones swept onward
to the finals today by coming from
behnd twice to defeat Paul Jamison,

of St. Louis, 2 and 1, in the morning,
and Elton Hill, University of Illinois
star, in the afternoon in his semi-
final game, 1 up.
Haas, almost a foot taller than his
rival finalist, had an easier day, rout-
ing Willie Thomsen, of Racine, Wis.,
4 and 3, and Keith Johnson, ofBloom-
ington, Ill., 2 and 1, in the semi-finals.
Haas, Southern amateur champion
and tomorrow's slight favorite was
only three over par for the 32 holes
he had to travel, whereas Jones was
11 over perfect figures.

In addition to the increased en-'

Dr. Hopkins illustrated the widen-
ing of the curriculum this summer by
citing such features as the Symposi-
um on Theoretical Physics, the Edu-
cational Conference, and the special
Institute on the Teaching of Inter-
national Law.
Dr. Hopkins also touched on the
four summer camps operated by the
University, namely, the Geology and
Geography station in southern Ken-
tucky, the Biological camp at Doug-
las Lake, Camp Filibert Roth for for-
estry, in the northern peninsula, near
Munising, and Camp Davis for sur-

problems, prefering to concentrate its
major attention on educational mat-

However strong in heavily popu-
lated areas, the N.E.A. does have one
"blind spot," he said. "Rural educa-
tion is now relatively neglected by the
association, and," he added, "it is
probably not desirable that the asso-
ciation should finance organized work
in these fields since its limited re-
sources must be used for problems
of the largest possible scope."
As one of the most important poli-
cies of the future determined upon
for the future by the association, Dr.
Carr mentioned "the establishment
of machinery for educational plan-
ning." He listed two agencies desig-
nated to contribute to this field.

Grandpappy Rhesus continued to
give the Belle Isle Monkey colony
lessons in jungle lore Thursday. So
effective was his first lesson - a fly-
ing leap across the moat surrounding
the recently completed Simian Eden
-that three of his little brown play-
mates "caught on," and, as a re-
sult, four bounding and gamboling
monkeys were free on Belle Isle.
"They're making monkeys out of
us," sadly opined Zoo Attendant Har-

that they would instruct the Zoo's
