Book Wins $1,000
A $1,000 prize has been award-
ed Rowland 0. Barber, '40, for
his book, "John 29," submitted in
the United Services Book Contest.
Sponsored by Thomas Y. Crow-
ell, Columbia Pictures, and George
B. Harrap Co. of London, the con-
test sought literary talent among
those who served in the armed
forces of the United Nations be-
tween Sept. 1, 1939, and June 30,
1946. One of two American win-
ners, Barber had served in Europe

Copy of Ordinance Here
The Clements Library has one
of the few copies of the first print-
ing of the ordinance. The doc-
ument has added value because
it was signed by the secretary of
the Congress, Charles Thomson.
Before the passage of the ordi-
nance the territory had been
completely lawless. The ordin-
ance provided for the organiza-
tion of the section and prepared
the way for eventual statehood.
According to Robert B. Brown,
curator of printed books at the
Clements library, the third article
of the ordinance is the most fam-
ous. It contains this sentence
which is the motto inscribed on
the front of Angell Hall. "Relig-
ion, morality, and knowledge be-
ing necessary to good government
and the happiness of all mankind,
schools and the means of educa-
tion shall forever be encouraged."
Daniel Webster stated of the
ordinance "I doubt whether any
one given law of any lawgiver, an-
cient or modern, has produced ef-
fects more distinct, marked, and
lasting character than the Ordi-
nance of 1787."

used for this purpose were not
valuable gems but pieces of quartz
and brightly colored stones which
caught the eye of prehistoric man.
The more valuable gems are
kept in a University vault and are
used only occasionally for dem-

The University's collection of
134 meteorites ranging in weight
from a fraction of an ounce to 400
pounds gives scientists a clue to
the nature of heavenly bodies.
The meteorites fall into two prin-
cipal classes, those which are
composed mainly of metal and
those whose structure is principal-
ly stone. The metallic meteorites
are about 95 per cent iron with
a small percentage of metal.
The collections are invaluable
in the teaching of mineralogy ac-
