For 1936, University Got
$5,338,533.75 Of Total
To 15 Institutions
The third annual accounting of
the Horace H. and Mary A .Rackham
Fund, made Saturday by the trustees
to Probate Judge Thomas C. Murphy,
Detroit, showed that in a total dis-
bursement df $6,874,000.37 during
1936, the University of Michigan was
the largest beneficiary, receiving $5,-
338,533.75 from the Rackham Fund
during that year.
The schedule, which filled three
large volumes, showed educational
appropriations of $6,656,000, chari-
table donations of $72,196.58, ben-
evolent grants of $67,632, and scien-
tific appropriations of $12,000. Ad-
ministration costs totaled $29,039.96.
A total of 15 educational institu-
tions benfited with the trustees re-
porting gifts of $4,000,000 to the
University and $1,333,533.75 to the
Board of Regents. Under the scien-
tific appropriations a $5,000 gift to
the University was listed.
Of the original trust totaling more
than $12,000,000, a balance of $3,-
636,409.94 remains, according to the
trustees of the fund, set up in the
estate of the late Mr. Rackham,
whose fortune was based on Ford
Motor 'Stock received for drawing up
the original patent papers.

still in the 20 buriap bags they were
carrying. They were booked at the
Washtenaw County Jail at 5 p.m.
According to Sheriff Jacob B. An-
dres, State Police and authorities of
Washtenaw, Wayne, Monroe and
Oakland counties have been on the
lookout for the' past three months
for a gang answering the description
of the trio under arrest, in an at-
;empt to answer a series of chicken
coops despoiled almost nightly during
that period of time. Andres said that'
Whitfield, the youngest of the three,
had confessed to the thefts, and said
the older men had paid him $3 a
night to help them. Andres added
that farmers who have suffered re-
cent losses will be taken to Smith's
chicken store in Detroit in an at-.
tempt to identify some of the 600;
chickens in stock as stolen property.
Aside from the alleged chicken-
theft, the three gentlemen are ap-
parently otherwise unemployed, for'
the space allotted to "occupation" on
the jail registration cards here bore
only one word-"thief."
IRONWOOD, July 3.-(P)-Justice
of the Peace A. J. Getta today sen-
tenced to 30 days imprisonment three,
men who pleaded guilty to obstruct-
ing the highway and interfering with,

train minds to think in a vacuum by$
using classical materials only and
bothering little about contemporary
affairs on the assumption that there
is time enough for that after college.
The graduate school of the model
university will differ widely from the
mine-run of existing graduate schools,
whose programs anddprocesses are
still distressingly undergraduate in
content and technique. To it will
be admitted only young men and,
young women who show aptness for
and determination to become produc-
tive scholars. Once admitted, they
will find themselves in a master-ap-
prentice relationship. They will not,
to any material extent, be enrolled in
classes or expected to take courses es-
sentially informational in character.
They will instead serve as secretaries,
assistants, gatherers of data in the
field, and collaborating investigators
to the mature scholars of the perma-
nent staff.It will be assumed that
prospective scholars, with the capacity
requisite for admission to the model
university's graduate school, will be
able, with the informal and inci-
dental counsel of their older col-
leagues, to ferret out and formulate
the background-materials for their
respective fields.
The common body of staff and stu-
dents will at all times be jointly en-
gaged in the prosecution of well-
planned vital researches which have
scope and significance to contempo-
rary society. To illustrate, I mean re-
searches comparable to the three-
year economic study by the Brook-.
ings Institution, resulting in the four
volumes on America's Capacity to
Produce, America's Capacity to Con-
sume, the Formation of Capital, and
Income and Economic Progress. There
was, perhaps, no single mind engaged
on this project with the range and
precision of Adam Smith's mind, but
the group-produced result may well
rank, for this phase of economic evo-
lution, with that super scholar's
"Wealth of Nations" in 1776.
In this way there will come .out of
the graduate school of the model uni-
versity publications which effect syn-
theses affording guidance to society
in its special functions and its gen-
eral policies. Such publications will
not take the place of but will sup-
plement the detailed papers published
by individual scholars, but the im-
pact of the model university upon
the national life will be more through
these major syntheses 'than, as so
often now, through the intermittent
forays of exhibitionist professors into
press and politics.
Although they will be absolved
from responsibility for educating stu-
dents in the sense the liberal college
seeks to educate, the mature scholars
of the model university's graduate
school will have a vital relation to the
college. From time to time, they will
sit in with staff and students of the
liberal college, report their latest
findings in research, suggest to the
teachers the possible implications.
they see in these findings, get from
the teachers a sense of the new ques-
tions arising out of the attempts of
the liberal educators to further in
their students' minds the creation,
comprehension, and control of a satis-
fying social order, and give to the stu-
dents of the college first-hand con-

'model university will, in general, dif-
fer from existing professional schools
in their greater emphasis upon broad
and deep grounding in the philosophy,
purpose, and problems of the profes-
sion and their more limited concern
with techniques which may be more
soundly mastered in the profession it-
self and which become quickly out-
moded anyway.
There is no royal recipe for financ-
ing the model university.gAside from
the importance of its being adequate-
ly financed, two considerations are
paramount-it must not be financed
at the expense of its freedom and it
must be so financed that its facilities
are open to' the youth with capacity
to meet the challenge of its high dis-
cipline, regardless of his economic
status. In one place, this may mean
private endowment, in another, public
upport; in one place, it may mean
very low fees for everybody, in an-
other, measurably high fees with ex-
tensive provision of scholarships and
subventions. This issue must be de-
cided in terms of the location of the
model university and the economic
College Stars

Allan Tolmich, Of Wayne,
Defeats Towns; Four
Top Vault Record
MILWAUKEE, July 3.-(IP)-Black-
thatched, wiry Allan Tolmich, versa-
tile youngster from Detroit's Wayne
University, whipped a world cham-
pion, and came right back to set a
meet record today to outshine a field
of brilliant stars in the Golden Ju-
bilee renewal of the Amateur Ath-
letic Union's senior track and field
championship meet.
The grand old man of the middle
distances, Glenn Cunningham, re-
tained his 1,500 meters title with the
help of a heartbreaking accident to
little Archie San Romani; four far
westerners surpassed the accepted
world pole vault record, and six great
Negro high jumpers dominated their
field-but it was Tolmich who out-
sparkled them all 'today in Mar-
quette University's stadium.
Tolmich it was who whipped Geor-
gia's famous Forrest (Spec) Towns,
world record-holder, Olympic cham-
pion, defending titleholder and re-
garded as unbeatable in the high
hurdles, over the 110-meter route.
And it was Tolmich who came back
an hour later to skim over 200 meters
of low hurdles in the meet record time
of 23.3 seconds.
All this was on top of a triumph in
the junior 100-meters championship
last night.
The Detroit youth's triumph over
Towns, who conquered him in the
National Collegiate A.A. champion-
ship meet at Berkeley, Cal., two weeks
ago, was wholly earned. And Towns'
defeat was so thorough that he was
forced to accept third place behind
the flying Tolmich and Ray Staley of
Southern California.

Its athletics will be endowed and,

petitive teams than we have yet
known will emerge.
And, finally, the model university,
however secular its origin or affilia-
tion, will foster among its students
the ideals of a religion of maturity,
which it will define as a religion that
takes all of life for its field, a re-
ligion that makes for the unification
of man's purposes, so that an identity
of valuation runs through his polit-
ical, social, and economic as well as
more literally labeled religious prac-
tices, a religion that conserves the
vitaltenergies of men's lives by bring-
ing them to focus under the sov-
ereignty of a supreme objective.
I covet for the University of Mich-"
igan a nearness of approach to the
model university which I have all-
too-inadequately suggested.

A THOROUGHBRED will carry more weight fur-

blooded race horses trace their descent from three
Arabian Studs, Byerly Turk, Darly Arabian, and
Godolphin Barb. Crossed with English mares
these stallions produced horses vastly superior to

superb racing strains of Eclipse, Herod and
Matchem, known wherever men discuss fine
horses. Strange to say, the Thoroughbreds thus
developed proved far fleeter than the, horses by
whom they were sired, and today it is common
knowledge that a medium Thoroughbred will
