MATEO TIMES FRIDAY, MAY 19, 1944 Matean Gives Nash Library To University Milton S- Hay, developer of Burlingame's Ray Park, president of the Kay Oil Burner company of New York and San Francisco, and one-time resident of Beresford in San Mateo, has just presented the University of California with the John Henry Nash library, one of the finest collections of books in the United States. Great Value Donors of the library, along with Ray, are his firm and his immediate family, Mrs. Ray and their three daughters, Virginia, Cecily, and Rosalyn Ray. The gift was said *to have a value of six figures, although the amount was not announced. · The collection of books was hailed by university Librarian Harold L. Leupp as the best In 500 yssrs of typography and binding. It was originally made by the late Dr. John Henry Nash, whose famous jjress was established in San Francisco in 1895 and renowned throughout the world. It contains a page from the Gutenberg Bible, incunabula, and noteworthy examples of early European printing.. There are -2417 rare books, numerous exam- Tples of Nash's own printing, furniture, medals, and paintings included in the collection. Favored TT. C. Ray, who once attended San Mateo schools, commented upon his gift, purchased after the University of Oregon had been unable to raise funds to purchase it, by statng: "As a native San Franciscan, I wanted the collection here and I felt it would be an asset to the university. "When the University of Oregon couldn't raise the necessary funds, there was a strong chance the entire collection would be broken up and sent east for sale. inis "wvuiw uc o. £*·«»« ^^. The war will not last forever, and it is my hope that ultimately a jenliea of the old Nash library on Sansome street will be built on the Berkeley campus to house the collection.'* Your Wartime Hart Demobolized Veterans to Require Education for Adults "Our son, who had a pretty hare time of it at the Anzio beachhead, is about to be discharged from the army as a result of his injuries,' writes Mr. R. E .0. "We understand that he is pntitled'to vocational training, even under present law, but he insists on taking a regular college course and says thac most of the men at his hospital have the same idea. After all, with his arm missing he should try to take something that will help him earn a living. Do the parents have a chance to express their preferences" education, either under the rehabilitation plan, now b«"iJi£ offered dis- veterans through the vet- administration or under any King Peter Ousts Two of Cabinet LONDON. May 19.--UP) -- King Ptter II of Yugoslavia has re- wnmw«d the _ prime minister and cabinet of his" government-in-exile »nd has tamed Dr. Ivan Subasic, former governor of GroaM»t_ to form a new ministry in a move toward a reconciliation with partisan leader Marshal Josip (Tito) Broz, it was learned today. NO MEN FOR HARVEST WORK The Dominican republic lenge awaits ^"pg; to eause of a shortage of men to har- j ized veterans. may Ko- abled erans' future educational bill, parents have no say--and rightly so! These boys have earned their right to plan their lives in their own way, and we hope they_ do it. This is a very interesting letter, and this veteran's desire to gain a cultural education, rather than a technical one, is -not an isolated case. More than likely he has had a very excellent technical education while in the army. Most men have. And many- of these present veterans, especially those who have faced great realities on the fighting fronts, are now more interested in learning about politics, history, literature, and philosophy than purely vocational subjects. Broad Thinking "We all have a surprise ahead of us when these great armies of men start marching home. I am afraid it is going to be a severe shock to educators who are making all these pretty plans for post-war courses of a very practical nature. Most of these men have faced grim realties. Thsir minds hsve been stimulated by the sights they have seen, the people of other continents they have met and the problems they have discussed among tnem- selves. Most of them went away as adolescents, but they are returning as men with mature minds who will refuse to have their learning dished, out to them like their chow has been. The post-war educational program oners a real challenge to ed- scsters. Those Tetersns ""dll want to know more about their own culture, -the traditions of their own democracy, and. more particularly, the operation of their own government. They have been adultized by their experiences and no mean chal- the^ educator who ^fl yith thi* d*mobil- of education, keyed to the adult mind, to satisfy their curiosity. They will ask uncomfortable questions, searching ones. They will have ideas of their own. And their teachers had better widen their educational techniques to meet their demands for an education that will help them face, and solve, the many living problems in the shape of things to come.

Mav 19. -Specific dollars-and-cents prices at retail on tubes for replacement in civilian radio a.nd radio-phonograph sets were announced today by the office of price administration, to become effective tomorrow, "In general these will reflect the March, 1942, prices charged by the retailers,!' said Charles Aikin, OPA district price executive for sixteen Northern California counties. The establishment of these ceiling prices follows a drastically reduced supply of tubes for civilian replacements, and a _ tendency on the part of many retailers to either overcharge or insist on extra work being ordered before the tubes will be sold. "The new OPA ruling also specifies that the dealer may make no charge for testing tubes which arc brought to his shop by a customer. However, when a customer brings a table T portable model to a dealer's or repairman's shop to be tested or replaced, the dealer or repairman may charge a maximum of 50 cents for testing all of the tubes in the set. If the radio or phonograph mechanism has to be removed in order to test and replace the tube, a maximum charge of ?1 for all tubes will be allowed."
