BITE-SIZE BITER-University doctors have developed this small

University doctors have develop-
ed a new bite-size apparatus that
will remove tiny samples of liv-
ing samples from a patient's small
intestine without surgery.
The apparatus will be used for
exploratory operations in suspect-
ed stomach cancer and other dis-
orders of the digestive system.
Called a "hydraulic biopsy ap-
paratus," the .instrument is a
stainless steel capsule, which the
patient swallows, attached to a
length of soft plastic tubing.
The capsule contains a razor
sharp cylinder that' is activated
by hydraulic pressure transmitted
down the plastic tube. On each
motion it crosses a small open-
ing in the capsule and slices off a
a microscopic layer of the lining
of the intestine.
The sample is then washed up
through the plastic tube for ex-
amination by the physician. Sev-
eral tissue samples may be taken
before the capsule is removed.
Associate Professors of internal
medicine at the University Doc-
tors Robert J. Bolt and Arthur B.
French began developing the ap-
paratus two years ago. Herbert
Senecal and Edward Rupke of the
University's Office of Research
Administration assisted in its pro-

To Add 5,000
A survey of 200 four-year Col-
leges has shown that 150 of themj
are prepared to increase their
freshman class next fall, the Stu-
dent Admissions Center reported.
These 200 institutions alone will
admit 5,000 to 6,000 more fresh-
men than they were able to ac-
commodate this fall.
Based on this sample, the re-
port estimates that the total num-
ber of freshman places in the
country will increase eight to elev-
en per cent. This year enrollment
increase is estimated at seven per

40 state universities that answered

"The Frederick Stearns Collec-
tion of musical instruments is one
of the most outstanding collec-
tions in this country," Prof. Robert
Warner of the music school and
curator of the collection said.
Housed on the second floor of.
Hill Aud., the collection features
woodwinds, such as flutes, clar-
inets, and oboes in nearly all stages
of their historical development.
The collection of brass instru-
ments, horns, trumpets, and trom-
bones is nearly as complete as the
woodwinds. Stringed instruments
are less numerous, and fewer of
their ancestors have been pre-
served, probably because of their
fragility, Prof. Warner explained.
Few Keyboard Examples
Though the collection does not
include many keyboard instru-
ments, a few rare examples are
on exhibit, including a 17th cen-
tury virginal which can still be
Of special interest are many ex-
cellent oriental instruments, many
of which are now extremely rare
in the countriesiofstheir origin.

The collection was donated to
the University by Frederick
Stearns, a drug manufacturer, in
1899. Stearns lived for several
years afterward and continued to
contribute to the collection, which
was moved to Hill Aud. in 1914,
when the auditorium was first
Stearns himself collected the
main body of the exhibit during
the latter 18 years of the nine-
teenth century from all over the
world. The collection now includes
about 1500 items.
The collection is maintained
under a small budget of the music
school, Prof. Warner said. Al-
though funds are too limited to
allow the purchase of additional
exhibits, new items are donated
privately "almost every year."
About five years ago, long-
needed improvements were made
in the collection, including full-
time, operational assistants on
duty, general revision of the ex-
hibits -and painting of the cab-

Instruments belonging to the
collection are sometimes used in
concerts of early music given by
the concert organization, but such
instruments are usually modern
replicas of the old instruments,
since the authentic items are not
often in playing condition.
Prof. Warner explained that
"there are a good many reasons
for not using the authentic mod-

are old and valuable, and often

Having made a striking
comeback *in an untypical dra-
matic role in Anna Christie,
Marie Dressler turned with re-
lief to the field of comedy in
which she had always excelled.
In the aging Wallace Beery she
found a perfect foil - the
charming scoundrel, whose
shiftlessness would set off her
own familiarity with mop and
pail. Min and Bill was the first
of a series of comedies in which
these .seasoned actors made a
special appeal to the American
public with its fondness for.

Arne Sucksdorff's The Great
Adventure is the greatest na-
ture film ever made; there were
no dissenting voices when it
first appeared in America six
years ago. It is the product of
the most painstaking, on the
part of its creator, who spent
three years filming it, shot
250,000 feet which were finally
assembled into a film lasting
little more than an hour, and
spent, to mention one instance
of his desire for fidelity, 72
April nights spread over three
successive years to catch the
wood grouse in their proper
light. This is not a candied Dis-
ney product, in which beauti-
ful camera work is sullied by a
wisecracking commentary and a
too prominent, inapposite mu-
sical score. Sucksdorff does not
condescend to nature. His film
of a year on an isolated Swe-
dish farm is not merely accu-
rate and photographically beau-
nature; and The Great Adven-
ture is the apogee of this un-
derstanding. Some American
critics felt that it was too un-
sparing to be shown to chil-
dren, so over-protecting par-
ents might be warned about
this aspect; though we hold
with Auden, "Give each child
that's in our care/as much
neurosis as the child can bear."
What is at least a matter of
topical interest, since Sucks-
dormf could not manage the
costs of production, his ex-
penses were underwritten per-
sonally by that cultivated and
dedicated person, Dag Ham-
After the great flowering of
Soviet film art in the 1920's,
when individual talent found
more encouragement under a
paternalistic system than in
the Hollywood commercial jun-
gle, the next decade, like those
succeeding, was comparatively
bleak. Eisenstein was able to
complete one sound film, Alex-
ander Nevsky, since nationalis-
tic messages are always hon-
ored by political powers. Few
films of distinction could 'make
their appearance in the atmos-
phere poisoned by 'the Moscow
Trials and their aftermath; but
one impressive series emerged,
the Gorky trilogy, directed by
Mark Donskoi. Based on the
lengthy autobiography of the
eminent Soviet man of letters,
the three films called up a,
picture of Czarist Russia that
made legitimate human impli-
cations, were superbly acted,
and were the true revolutionary
descendants of the earlier pro-
ducts of Eisenstein, Pudovkin,
