LINCOLN PAPERS:
Civil War Causes Still Uncertain

1 Chelsea

A 16-year-old girl, relying on
stolen dairy products for suste-
aance, lived for 16 days in an
abandoned milk truck before she
wras located under a box car near
a swamp in Chelsea by the
Mounted Posse of the Washtenaw
County Sheriff;
Myrtle Marie Wilson, of Grass
Lake - a community approxi-
mately 22 miles due west of Ann
Arbor, told officers that she had
run away from home more than
wo weeks ago because of family
rouble.
She said to Washtenaw County
Sheriff Erwin L. Klager that her
ather was "just too mean" to her
rothers and herself'.
The girl reported that when her
father ordered her older brother
out of their house, she felt com-
pelled to, leave.
A make-shift bed inside the
abandoned truck was made by
lachig a blanket on a small
wooden platform:
The girl lived off food which
was taken from the Weinburg
Dairy in Lima township. She said
he entered the dairy plant
hrough an unlocked door each
night and took enough milk, cot-
age cheese and other products "to
keep from getting hungry."
She insisted to the sheriff.that
he intended to pay for the things
he took.
To prove it, she produced a
roducts which she had written on
arefully pencilled list of milk'
Kie of the regular bills used by
he dairy.

Availability of Abraham Lin-
coln's papers to the public has not
settled the "sprightly historical
controversies over the causes of
the Civil War," according to Prof.
Robert Gunderson of Oberlin Col-
lege.
In a lecture under the auspices
of the speech department yester-
day Prof. Gunderson pointed out
that the papers are often inter-
preted by students with precon-
ceived ideas.
Made available over 80 years
after some were penned, Lincoln's
papers are now housed, for the
most part, in the National Library.
In Railsplitters Hand
Papers in the National Library
collection include approximately
900 "in the Railsplitter's distinc-.
tive hand." The remaining items
include some of the letters Lin-
coln received while in office.
Many of the 200 or more let-
ters received at the White House
each day were never answered. A
major portion of those which were
saved were requests for patronage.
Other letters contained advice or
threats.
More Lifeguards
Advocated by Aide
Wilfrid .de St. Aubin, executive
director of the Washtenaw County
Red Cross chapter yesterday urged
mandatory use of lifeguards at all
public and commercial bathing
beaches.
. He said he was "shocked" by the
number of weekend drownings in
area waters and, throughout the
state.

to have destroyed some possibly
injurious papers before turning
the collection over to the library.
In any case, Prof. Gunderson
pointed out, the papers left with
Robert Todd Lincoln fared better
than those left with the Presi-
dent's cousin, Elizabeth Todd
Grimsley.',
A carpet bag containing some of
Lincoln's pre-presidential writings
was left with her.
Prof. Gunderson stated, "A
careless maid, it seems, mistook
the contents of old Abe's carpet
bag for trash - and burned his
literary efforts of the prairie
years."
At National Library
Papers which Robert Todd Lin-
coln retained were deeded to the
National Library in 1923 with the
provision that they not be made
public until 21 years after his
death.
He died in-1926 and the papers
were eventually microfilmed. Sets
of the micro-films are now avail-
able in 21 cities for scholarly use.
Original papers, kept by the
National Library, fill 194 gilt-let-
tered buckram volumes.

Rabinoviteh
Sets Speech
At -Eastern
Dr. Ralph Rabinovitch, former
chief of the children's service at
the University's Neuropsychiatric
Institute will be the guest speaker

ly director of Hawthorn Center at
Northville, will speak on "Mental

Pupil Relationship."
In 1955, he became an associate
professor in the University's psy-
chiatry department and was

service.
Dr. Rabinovitcl later resigned
the University post in a dispute
over administrative policy.

PROF. ROBERT GUNDERSON
. . .discusses Lincoln letters
A poorly paid professor of Latin
asked Lincoln for "any job in his
power to bestow."
Political Friends
"Political friends provided help
and encouragement," said Prof.
Gunderson. Publisher Horace
Greeley, a Lincoln supporter
warned against "apology and re-
treat." A
Prof. Gunderson observed that
most mail postmarked south of
Ohio contained threats and indig-
nities.
John Nicolay and John Hay
were responsible for correspond-
ence while Lincoln was President.
After his death, most of the pa-
pers eventually ended up in the
possession of Robert Todd Lincoln.
Robert Todd Lincoln is thought
