Expert Diploma Maker Says
Lack of Muslin Hinders Work

A muslin shortage this season is
holding up output of framed sheep-
skins for university degree holders,
according to James B. Saunders who
for the past half-century has spec-
ialized in mounting diplomas for
graduating students.
Once the shortage is ended, Saund-
ers expects to resume his chores
which always pile up shortly after a
semester ends. Later his handiwork
will appear on the walls of law, engi-
neering, dental, medical and phar-
maceutical offices.
A picture-framer by trade, Saund-
ers was born here in. 1876 and at the
age of 16 began learning his craft.
He has no idea of how many diplo-
mas he has mounted and framed

system would require vast over-haul-
ing of present procedures and prob-
ably would take several years before
'completely effected.-
Indiana and North Carolina have
launched such integration schemes.
Other states have also unified their
higher education administrative con-
trol through establishment of over-
all administrative and policy-making
boards with the result that "stream-
lining" and subsequent savings have
been evolved, observers pointed out.
Keniston Favors Study
In Michigan, lack of such control
may lead to unnecessary waste of
money and general confusion in the
higher education circles during forth-
coming expansion, according to Dean
Hayward Kenston of the literary
college, who strongly favors an ex-
tensive study of integration.

since a day in 1904 when he pre-
pared one for a young attorney,
Frank E. Jones. Since then he has'
become a consultant in treating aged
or ailing sheepskins.
From all parts of the country come
wrinkled or warped diplomas, cer-
tificates and other documents for
him to smooth over and straighten
out. Not long ago, he said, he re-
ceived a dried-out sheepskin from
somewhere in Texas, but it had been
exposed to an arid climate so many
years that no restorative effort could
stop it from crumbling.
In his travels around the country,
Saunders often calls on Michigan
graduates and looks at their diplomas
with a craftsman's eye of shrewd ap-
praisal. He says he's been informed
about Michigan diplomas hanging in
offices in such c'ountries as Turkey,
China and India.
The University still obtains its
sheepskin supply from England by
way of a Philadelphia Bank Note
Company. The skins are still pre-
pared by ancient, time-consuming
methods ofadrying, curing and dip-
ping handed down through countless
Diploma clerks say no modern
speed-up technique has been devel-
oped for turning out sheepskins of
the quality the University demands.
When a supply arrives at Ann Ar-
bor, Dwight Gadberg begins hand
inscribing them with the name of
the school or college, the graduate's
name, the name of the degree and
the date of its award.

"The veterans I have contacted
have been more convinced that the
state should establish a fund to be
used in future years, when it is really
needed, to help the vet obtain easy
loans for building a home, a farm
or starting a business," Christman
He added that all were agreed that
funds will be required to help maimed
veterans and that steps should be tak-
en to provide for them first. Christ-
man proposed that the $50,000,000
vet trust fund built up during the
war by the state be used to "earn
more money," and eventually be util-
ized if a bonus is required.
This fund is controlled by a five-
man veteran committee appointed by
Gov. Kelly anc is being used for
needy vets and their families.
Christman, who described himself
as an old-time Republican, voted in
opposition to the rent control bill
allowing 15 per cent increase in rents.

Hold Your Bonds

The meeting here was called by
directors of the American Forestry
A_.sociation to point up a program
of state, regional and national action
which is said to be necessary to re-
pair war drains upon the forest re-
source and to speed progress in bring-
ing the nation back to a position of
forest plenty.
"The war has brought home with
dramatic emphasis the importance
of forests as an essential national
resource," said W. S. Rosecrans, pres-
ident of the association.
Postwar demands for products of
the forest are vividly underscoring
that fact. The American people need
and want desperately a forest pro-
gram that will assure them and their
children forests adequate to their
"Our country has all the tree-
growing lands necessary to meet
these needs. What is urgently and
critically needed, now that the war
is over, is a coordinated program of
public and private action to bring
these lands under productive man-
agement as rapidly as possible.
