College Has Study Enforcer (Jan, 1937)

College Has Study Enforcer
AN OLD machine owned by the University of Wisconsin is called the study enforcer. The unusual device is actuated by a clock-like mechanism and its mechanical fingers scoop a book off the desk and return another one until the student has completed reading the scheduled volumes.

    That machine was invented by the ecologist, John Muir, when he was a student at UW-Madison. There is a great description of it in his autobiography.
