Wreck Heroine

Thelma Ristveldt (above) was
stewardess aboard - the ill-fated
"City of San Francisco" which de-
railed near Carlin, Nev., with a loss
of 20 lives, and was described by
survivors as the heroine of the
accident. Although painfully hurt
herself, she ministered to the needs
of those more seriously injured.
Public Enemy No. 1

Text Library
Offers To Aid
Needy Students
(This is the second of four articles
citing typical cases in which under-
privileged students have been aided
by the Textbook Lending Library.)
His first year he wouldn't have
cared whether there was a Textbook
Lending Library or not. He was
vaguely aware that the University
possessed a collection of more than
400 textbooks which were lent to
needy students upon recommendation
of the academic counsellors he'd
seen a story in The Daily about a
drive in progress much like the one
on. now, a drive to get donations so
that the library, could prove more
useful. But that was all.
And it really didn't matter then.
He had an allowance from home and
plenty of money. Summers he
worked but just for the fun of it.
Then the bottom dropped out of
his world. Financial reverses beg-
gared his family. He wanted des-
perately to continue his college edu-
cation. Knowing that he would re-
ceive no aid from home he decided to
go ahead. He still had his freshman
books, Sudednly he had an idea.
He went to the Textbook Lending
Library and said:.
"I have here my freshman texts. I
can't afford to buy this year's. How
about a. trade?"
Those in charge smiled and listened
to an explanation of his problem.
Then they arranged the trade and
the boy was able to go ahead in the
University. Another student had been
aided in his quest for education. Once
more the Textbook Lending Library
had proven of value.
(Contributions to the Textbook
Lending Library, which is at present
conducting a drive for donations of
texts used during the Summer Ses-
sion and no longer needed, may be
left at any branch of the Library. The
books will then be lent to worthy stu-
dents upon recommendation of aca-
demic counsellors).
In The Ma jors

STUDIES THAT have added greatly to the field of knowledge of
astronomy have been made at the McMath-Hulbert Observatory, shown
above. The observatory, where valuable moving pictures have been
made of the movements of celestial bodies and of the activities of the
sun, was given to the University eight years ago by Robert R. McMath,
Francis McdMath and Judge Henry S. Hulbert. The donors not only
designed and constructed the observatory, but have given their services
to its use.
