ENGINEERS' CONFERENCE:
'U' Panel To Discuss Work Measuring

These works of a man written
once, fade and join with the
cracks and dust of time worn
Elements to be used by seed
now dominant a primal source
Constantly changing form.
These words of Gibbs Milliken
written on his print, "Cryptic
Stone," descriptively summarize
his paintings which probe the re-
alities of birth, growth, death, de-
cay and regeneration.
An expressive realist, Milliken's
works portray- the primary pro-
cesses of nature. His principal
working media are acrylic and
charcoal, and his secondary media
are water color, lithography, ink,
and oil.
Works Displayed
Milliken, whose works are on
display at the Forsythe Gallery
until Feb. 19, is presently an in-
structor at Cranbrook Academy of
Art.
Although he possesses an ex-
pressive quality, Milliken's paint-
ings and drawings employdetailed
realism. "Roots in the Earth" con-
tains a real root superimposed on
the canvas of muted tones.
The constant theme of primeval
nature gives his works a consistent
direction. The "Edge of the Sea"
presents a poetic image in pale
blue, pearl white, muted tan and
green tones, which invokes a scene

By ROBERT FOREST a

Collegiate Press Service
Some years ago, Professor K. M.]
Wallace of Los Angeles State Col-1
lege wrote a book refuting the
common theory that romantic1
love is the main factor in deter-
mining marital happiness.
In 1963, Mrs. Gertrude Neiger,
a trained social worker, applied
that concept in organizing the
Scientific Introduction Centre in
Toronto. The object was to pro-
vide a clearing-house for person-
ality information, to avoid "the
complex, nonsensical ritual of
mate selection in our society." The
old ideas of lonely hearts' clubs
and marriage brokers were out.,
Curious Applicants
The publicity brought 500 ap-
plications from the curious, the
interested, the anxious. Three hun-
dred persons were accepted, and
at present there are 460 men and
women registered at the Centre.
IHow does the system work?
First, a client usually has mar-
riage in mind, but generally he is
less active socially than most peo-
ple. For the fee charged, he is
given several interviews and per-
sonality assessments,the results
of which are punched on an IBM
card. The data processor matches
people with similar interests; dates
are arranged as often as needed
and available, and sooner or later
there is an audible click-and a
marriage.

A REMINDER OF PLACES uninhabited by man, "Beach With
Stones" by Gibbs Milliken evokes a brooding. primeval quality.
His paintings which deal with the primary processes of nature
are currently on display at the Forsythe Gallery in the Nickels
Arcade.

unknown to civilization. In this
exploration of natural life Milli-
ken believes the essence of exist-
ence is to be found.
Contrasting Forces
Milliken's images express the
contrast between recreative and
destructive forces. Two. paintings
deal with transformation, and a
charcoal, the "Black Seed" pre-
sent life in its becoming stage.
On the destructive side of life's
cycle, the "Black Skull" is haunt-
ing in its hollow darkness, and
its foreboding quality is found in
a similar subject, "Skull in the
Grass."
A deep brooding pervades the'
pictures. The landscapes, such as
"Beach with Stones," are remind-
ers of places uninhabited by man.
"Earth Forms" is a dark abstrac-
tion in green, gray, and black
tones which could be seen only
through the most imaginative mi-
croscope or in the time when life
was unseen and unseeable.
Milliken frequently employs
stones in his subject matter. Both
"Isolated Stone" and "Fractured
Stone" present delicate sensitivity
and all-encompassing darkness
with a black background.
Oriental Spirit
The spirit of these works is ori-
ental in philosopbic4l concept.
The use of subtle blending colors
is evidenced in the "Process of
Transformation" and "Mineralized
Stone" and relates to the shibui

principle of beauty. The viewer
passes through the picture plane
into a world of muted greens,
pearl grays, and warm yellows
carefully integrated with trans-
parent blacks.
The scenes never completely re-
veal themselves, always hinting
at hidden meanings beyond the
plastic statements. All possess the
qualities to be found when art is
the natural extension of the per-
sonality.

I Everyone's Talking About

Later in Life
For Churchill
The belief that the late Win-
ston Churchill was not well known
until he was 65 years old has been
substantiated by University sourc-
es.
Churchill apparently visited Ann
Arbor twice during his life, and
neither visit was widely publicized.
He first came here in 1901 to
discuss his experiences in the
Boer War; but his lecture received
only slight mention in a 1954 book
on James Burrill Angell.
Churchill's second visit, how-
ever, went virtually unrecorded.
The occasion for this visit was a
lecture to approximately 3000 stu-
dents in Hill Auditorium. Appear-
ing as part of the Oratorical Asso-
ciation Lecture Series, Churchillj
spoke on "The Pathway of the
English Speaking Peoples."
Only a short reference is made
to this latter speech in the March
1932 Michigan Alumnus. The
Daily, which referred to him as,
"the stormy petrel of British poli-
tics," gave his speech only one
column coverage.
Under the headline "Churchill
scoffs at rash projects for dis-
armament," The Daily article re-,
lated that Churchill spoke on
many topics from tyranny to li-
quor prohibitions.
But, perhaps of even more es-
sence in this speech, was Church-
ill's warning on Communisp. "We
are agreat power. You are a great
power. Together we are mighty.
But there are other powers and
other forces particularly that
ruthless force based on a doctrine
that offers logical solutions for
every political problem. Eventual-
ly, there will be a great struggle
between those opposing doctrines.
And then only will the destiny of
the world be secure. It will be ai
battle against the grim, new cold-
blooded tyranny of Communism.
Perhaps it is the task of the Eng-
lish speaking peoples to lead thisj
battle."

Like being an engineer anywhere else, you're saying.
Well . . . yes, and no.
Procter & Gamble is a remarkably stable company, and
technical employment just doesn't fluctuate. P&G engineers
don't worry about shutdowns or layoffs.
And P&G puts more than a little emphasis on the creative
aspects of engineering-the solving of problems by men
encouraged to use their own initiative to "find a different
way." P&G takes special care of its new engineers, too.

a project in the area that interests him most.
Projects of considerable responsibility are assigned each in-
dividual early in his career, and, assisted by planned per-
sonal coaching at first, it is not unusual for an eng.ineer
after six months to be responsible for the design and de-
velopment of equipment in the million dollar range.
This strong beginning leads to advancement in a relatively
short time, and our engineers tell us it is invaluable.
It is invaluable to the Company, too, and most necessary
