The course in Army Stores Methods
will be given this fall again under the
direction of Prof. J. A. Bursley, who
is in complete charge of the course
this summer. The training will very
likely occupy asimilar period of time,
and will be a duplication of the pres-
ent training.
Yesterday afternoon the men en-
rolled in the course were given a lec-
ture by H. N. Stronck, vice-president
of the Illinois Engineering and Audit-
ing company, Chicago, Ill. Mr. Stronck
discussed the fundamental principles
of the economics of materials, and of
the departments and functions neces-
sary to the most efficient utilization.
of supplies in the army. Mr. Stronck
is author of the book called the "Pur-
chase and Utilization of Supplies,"
which is being used in the course. Both
Mr. Stronck and Mr. C. H. Benedict,
president of the Chicago company, are
devoting at least 50 per cent of their
time to giving lectures for the govern-
ment along this line, having volun-
teered their services.
Students now enrolled in the course,
of which 23 belong to the Ordnance
corps and 29 to the Quartermasters
department, will complete their work
here in several weeks. In that time,
the +principle fundamentals of Army
Stores methods will have been given

Librarian Bishop Calls Congres-
sional System Model
"America has furnished the model
national library of the world," said
Librarian W. W. .Bishop in conclud-
ing a lecture on the Library of Con-
gress, yesterday afternoon in the Nat-
ural Science Auditorium.
"The Library of Congress was found-
ed in 1800, the year in which the seat
of government was transferred from
New York to the new federal city of
Washington. Washington was a city
so new that it had no library upon
which Congress could depend so it was
necessary that it establish one for its
own use. The Library of Congress
was at first situated in a room of the
House of Representatives and grad-
ually gained more space until it was
finally seen that a separate building
was a necessity.
Copyright Law Helps Collection
"In 1814 Congress had apropriated
$24000 for the purchase of the library
of Presdent Jefferson who had a truly
remarkable collection for his time, but
the real boom in the library came in
1870 when the copyright law was pass-
ed. This law stated that two copies
of the best edition of any publication
which was to be copyrighted must be
sent to the Library of Congress. Then
too, much of the progress was due to
Dr. Spofford whom Lincoln appointed
head *f the library in 1863 and who
held office for thirty-four years. He
was a man especially fitted for his
position as he had a wonderful con-
ception of, what a library could and
should be.
"Congress finally condemned the
two whole blocks oposite the Capital
and bought the site for the new build-
ing at a cost of $600,000. The total
cost of the library was about $6,000,000
and was remarkable in that it kept
within its appropriation and was even
able to return a portion of it."
Noted For Its Beauty
"The new Library of Congress is
noted for its beauty. Its size and
architecture make the exterior very
imposing while the vari-colored mar-
bles within add to its fame. On the
walls are wonderful mosaics and fres-
coes, one of the most notable series
being done in gray tones and repre-
senting the evolution of' literature.
The book stacks are 10 stories high
but the books are made very acces-
sible through the pneumatic book car-
riers by which they can be procured
in less than six minutes.
"The library now has over two and
a third million books and ranks third
in size among the great libraries of
the world being smaller only than the
Bibliotheque Nationale and the Brit-
ish Museum. It is not its size and
beauty, however, that we, as librarians
are proud of-it is the quality of the
work which it does and which gives
it its place as the model national
library of the world."
Mr. Bishop was in charge of the
reading room of the Library of Con-
gress for eight years.
Members of the Kalamazoo club will

they are attending the University.'

Guaranteed Amateur Finishing
Enlargements from your Negatives a Specialty
I have led while others followed in amateur finishing for twelve
years. Now we are still leading. We guarantee perfect results
or no charge. We give you "Peace Time Results" as we have
a plenty of Metol (which we could sell at $50.00 per lb.) and
we venture to say that no other firm is using Metol for finishing.
If you want the best results you will bring your films here.
