State Historical
Group Obtains
800 Old Books
W.K. Kellogg Foundation
Useless-Book Canvass
Yields Ancient Volumes
Aid Local Libraries
The W. K. Kellogg Foundation,
which has been the donor of many
gifts to the University, its latest be-
ing the new dental school, was re-
cently the indirect cause of the addi-
tion of more than 800 interesting old
books which were obtained by the
Michigan Historical Collection.
The Foundation collected during
April and May from seven counties
in southern Michigan, 904,789 worn-
out books which were judged worth-
less. In return for each five such
books handed in, one new publication,
to be chosen by the local library, was
supplied by the sponsors of the move-
The Michigan Historical Collection,
hearing that approximately one mil-
lion books were to be sent to the pulp
mills, obtained permission to go
through them and retain the val-
uable volumes. While nothing of any
great value was uncovered, Miss
Annie Muir MacIntyre, research as-
sistant of the Collection, stated that
much of interest to students of early
Michigan literature was found.
Among the books, which have since
been turned in to the General Lib-
rary and the Clements Library, were
county histories, old atlases of the
state, various official publications
and works of comparatively unknown
Michigan authors. One of the most
interesting, Miss MacIntyre said, was
the "Immigrants' Guide," which
dealt with the topography of the
state, illustrating by maps their ad-
vice as to the best sites for farm
lands open to new settlers in Michi-
gan's early days.
Mrs. Zoe Wright, the Foundation
librarian, has been assisting local
libraries in choosing books to replace
the old ones collected by children and
civic groups in the seven counties.
The campaign in Van Buren County,
where the movement was started,
culminated May 1, designated as
Library Day.
In that county alone more than
167,200 volumes were collected, which
means that they will be replaced on
the library shelves by 33,000 new
books. A further agreement provides,
that each new book purchased by the;
library will be matched by one do-
nated by the Foundation, the book to
be of the local library's choice.
The Michigan Historical Collection,
which has offices on the Ground
Floor of the Rackham Building, spent
the better part of a week, working
from 6 to 10 p.m., carrying out their
tremendous task of separating the
wheat from the chaff of almost one
million dust-covered volumes.
Stockwell Hall Holds Tea
Stockwell Hall residents will en-
tertain guests today from 4 p.m. to
5 p.m. when the usual weekly social
tea will be held in the living room.
Mrs. Virginia Miner Harryman
and Mrs. Lura D. Niles, house direc-
tors at the West Quadrangle will pre-
side over the tea table.

Sadie Hawkins
Dance Features
Informal Garb
Pinafores, overalls, slacks or shorts
-anything goes for the Sadlie Hawk-
ins dance to be given Saturday at
the League, according to Betty Hoag,
'41, in charge of the affair.
Sadie Hawkins, spinster in the
Li'l Abner cartoon, will swing out
on the Michigan campus for the
first time to mark the only women's
invitational dance of the Summer
Session. Informality is to reign over
the affair, where the women will
bring their dates in whole or par-
tial costume.
A few suggestions came from Miss
Hoag as to how women may dress,
but none for the men who must
merely match their moods, and use
their own imagination. Dancers are
asked to wear at least some sugges-
tion of a costume, if only a ban-
danna or for girls a big hair bow, to
get into the spirit of the party.
For those with more ingenuity,
there will be a costume committee
scouting around to find the best
imitator ofra Kentucky mountaineer.
A prize will be given for the best
woman's and the best man's costume.
The hillbilly motif is to be carried
out to any extreme from tattered
shorts like Daisy Mae wears to a
cotton dress with a sun bonnet.
A word to those who cannot pic-
ture themselves garbed in a costume,
the committee is there to enforce
penalties as well as give prizes. The
normal price is 35c a person, but the
committee may tack on as many as
five extra pennies for those who
come prettied up in regular date
'clothes. This al. powerful group of
judges is made up of Agnes Landers,
Miss Hoag, Bob Bishop and Logan

A Saturday morning wedding in

Mr. and Mrs. Clarence W. Avery, of

'Family Affair' At Majestic
"Family Affair" arrived at the Ma-
jestic Theatre yesterday with the
four starring roles capably handled
by Nancy Kelly, Robert Cummings,
Roland Young and Hugh Herbert.
A Wall Street Entan%1':ment
It is an amusing (in fact it might
even be called, funny if it weren't
for this hot weather) story of the
trials and tribulations of the Boston
Wall Street. The black sheep, Amos
Bullerton (Roland Young) of a high
brow Bostonian family is dishonor-
ably discharged from any further
connections with said family. He
feebly tries to impress his daughter
(Nancy Kelly) by entertaining her at
a swanky night club during her visit
in New York. Things immediately
progress from bad to worse and he
is exposed as being what he is rather
than what he wanted to be. However,
the attempt which seems to prove
unfortunate at the time really rees-
tablishes him in the Boston Wall
Street when, through the philander-
ing of Gilikin, owner of the Alloy
Copper Mines, his fate ishshifted
into brighter channels.
Upon being sent to head a Boston
branch, Bullerton discovers that he

's still the black sheep as far as
Boston is concerned and his troubles
begin. His daughter and legal ad-
viser hop to his rescus by devising
an impossible scheme which wouldn't
work anywhere 'other than in the
movies and the doting, mid-Victorian
grandfather is finally persuaded to
approve of his supposedly good-for-
nothing son.
Hugh Herbert Is Good
Of course there must be a love
angle and this is suppled by Cum-
mings and Kelly who turn out a
rather unromantic romance but at
least it is in the realm of possibility
and that's more than we can say for
the rest of the picture. Hugh Her-
bert is just plain Hugh Herbert and
we've seen Kelly and Cummings do
a better job than this; however, we
laughed and that's a good sign.
