tertained by Ralph Waldo' Emer-o
son, Bret Harte and Mark Twain.
In 1912 SLA, which had met
with near bankruptcy twice during
its 58-year history, finally folded,
and the series came under the
auspices of the Oratorical Associa-
tion, an organization sponsored by
the Speech Department which
managed debates and other speech
activities.
The early part of the current
century saw foreign political per-
sonalities such as Jan Masasyk,
Madame Pandit and Carlos Rom-
ulo as well as American statesmen
presented. Thomas Mann, Ber-
trand Russell and Edna St. Vin-
cent Millay headed the list of
literary figures who came to the
campus.
In recent years the series has
featured Clement Attlee, Barbara
Ward, Norman Vincent Peale,
Eleanor Roosevelt, Wayne Morse,.
Paul Douglas, Clifton Fadiman,
Mark Clarke, Chester Bowles and
Trygve Lie.
"But now we are in the space

age, the scientifle age, and speak-
ers on that subject are not speak-
ing in everyday language," Mrs.
Upham said.
However the committee invited
as many as 20 lecturers who were
unable to accept, reported Prof.
Brandt. It was especially difficult
to obtain speakers because of the
national election. He added that
one is always in competition with
the television medium
"Politics used to be hot pota-
toes," Mrs. Upham remarked, "but
now with television you get all
the major speeches when they
happen."
Looks Ahead
Looking ahead, Mrs. Upham in-
dicated that anything that per-
tains to the future that can be
put into everyday language will be
under consideration.
"We have no intention of con-
tinuing with this lack of balance,"
said Prof. Brandt, "although
chances for getting top-notch
speakers are becoming increasingly

Basil Rathbone, star of the na-
tional company production of the
award winning drama "JB" will
bring his one-man presentation,
"The Best from My Bookshelf," to
Ann Arbor as the final program in
the current Platform Attractions.
Set to appear at 8:30 p.m. Tues-
day in Hill Aud., Rathbone's bill of
fare will include selections from
Sir Arthur Conan Doyle,. Edgar
Allan Poe, Elizabeth Barrett
Browning and William Shakes-
peare.
Of the poetic aspects of his
program, Rathbone has said,
"Very few people read poetry.
Still fewer collect the works of
great poets - and for a very
simple reason. Most of us are
trained to read. Therefore, the
eye is the essential contact, while
poetry, the essential sense is the
ear.
"Poe defined poetry as 'the
rhythmical creation of beauty.'
Surely implicit in that definition
is the requirement that the rhy-
thm be established vocally. That's
what my program is all about."

Susskind, the Toronto Symphony
