pictured above, will line the streets before today's game and lure
homecomers' cars into makeshift parking lots on lawns, driveways
and empty lots. Enterprising parking attendants, with the help of
a large lot, can make enough to keep themselves well stocked with

Any constitutional convention

Michigan has its own precedent
for a shorter November ballot. The
state's first Constitution, in 1935,
authorized the governor to name

The treasurer was appointed by

Archaeologist Gives Lecture
About Terra Cotta Figurines

"The charming figurines of Ta-
nagra are of a type that has been
copied throughout the ancient
world, and their appeal for collec-

figurines were cast from molds and
reveal remarkable precision of
Figures Represent Deities
Early Tanagrines represent ac-
tual female deities and were dedi-
cated to sanctuaries. They em-
bodied the general characteristics
of a goddess, but a specific goddess
could not be identified from exami-
nation of individual Tanagrines.
These statuettes found use as or-
naments, household goddesses and
other ritualistic devices.
This type of figurine originated
in the fourth or third centuries
B.C. and was found in the Greek
ocean village of Tanagra near
Athens. The local specimens of
Tanagra are a stylistic type which
spread to more distant regions.
These figurines have quite a
reputation for being forged. When
peasants, before 1870, discovered
them in graves and sanctuaries,
dealers were the first to exploit
these finds.
Popularity of these figurines was
enormous, and many dealers who
couldn't keep up the demand were
forced to reproduce hundreds more
from the original molds.
Museums Find Forgeries
Even the British Museum and
the Louvre have had to contend
with forgeries. Scientific tests,
nevertheless, dispel any doubt
about authenticity. In view of the
looting of the Tanagrian graves
in the late 1800's, there are only aj
few fine authentic statuettes still
in existence.
From a histroical standpoint,
there was an intimate relationship
between the artistic styles of Ta-1
nagra and Athens. Geography ac-
counts for much duplication in
In Tanagra, there was no notice-
able distinction between fourth
and third century figurines. In
Athens, the delicate, subtle detail
of the fourth century was lost to
decisively sharp, metallic detail in
the third century. Most distinctive
in both regions was a change in
subject matter. Earlier serene,
pensive women became involved in
daily actions like holding the baby
or carrying water jugs.

PHOENIX. BIRD--This huge brocade was presented by the Institute for Chemical Research of
Kyoto University in Japan to Dean of the Graduate School Ralph A. Sawyer, director of the Phoenix
Project (left), and Prof. Henry J. Gomberg, associate director of the project. The gift was received
by University President Harlan Hatcher (right),

A gift from Kyoto University in
Japan of a silk brocade with a
colored figure of a Phoenix bird
was accepted by the University
Regents yesterday.
The eight-foot long, hand-woven
brocade was presented to Prof.
Henry J, Gomberg, associate di-
rector of the Phoenix Project, dur-
ing his recent visit to the Kyoto1
University Institute for Chemical
Research. The brocade is to be
placed in the Phoenix Memorial;
Sankichi Takei, director of the

Kyoto Institute, made the gift in
the hope of promoting an inti-
mate friendship between the Insti-
tute and the University project
and to encourage the work of bothj
in the field of peaceful uses of
atomic energy. He also expressed
the hope that the work of the
Phoenix Project at the University
"will develop more brilliantly."
The 20-year-old brocade, the
only one of its design made, was
previously used as a symbol of a
textile company in Kyoto. Prof..
Gomberg also brought back a
small statue of the Phoenix bird
