Scalapino continued.
"A major problem for develop-
ing societies is how to borrow what
is new, and fit it to the require-
ments of their society," he noted.
"The local scholar must be an
indigenous part of any new meth-
od of study. He can operate at a

Marx's Appeal
Prof. Scalapino traced the ap-
peal of Marxism to Asian intellec-
tuals along these lines:.
1) Marxism is the "science" of
rapid industrialization, the "sci-
ence" of catching up.
2) It gives the non-Western in-
tellectual a sense of relief from
isolation. It defines the world in
terms of common problems and
provides an intellectual method of
conformity and unity.
3) Marxism is the philosophy of
optimism: it promises "the good
life" at the end.
4) It provides a method of
change that is practical and prag-
5) Marxism is an easy ideology
to understand. It is an easy route
to intellectualism.,

... metropolitan problems

Asks Help
For Cities
Metropolitan service agencies, in
which local governments have a
strong voice, should be set up in
the United States, Prof. Arthur
Bromage, chairman of the political
science department, said recently.
Prof. Bromage, speaking to the
Conference on Government of the
National Municipal League in
Washington, said the "home rule
tradition in Michigan" makes city-
county consolidation unlikely. In-
stead, hesuggested an "open-end
legislation" in which an urban
area could set up a metropolitan
service agency, tackling sewage
disposal and water problems first.
"The state of Washington has
almost a model law in this re-
spect," Prof. Bromage said.

The character of an opera de-
termines whether it is better per-
formed in the language of the
country in which it is being per-
formed, or in the original lan-
guage in which the libretto was
written, John S. White, associate
director of the New York City
Opera, said recently.
The English translation has been
developed by several smaller opera
companies. Although the purpose
of this is to bring the meaning of
the presentation to a greater
amount of people, the effect is to a
degree destroyed since the educat-
ed audience is used to the original
When the opera has a light text
and the music serves mainly to un-
derline the melodic line, a presen-
tation in the language of the aud-
ience is preferred. In Mozart's
"The Marriage of Figaro," for in-
stance, much of the comedy is lost
if the audience is unable to un-
derstand the lines. It is unfair to
the listeners if the performers do
not sing in a language that will
give them the fullest benefit of
the witty lines, White explained.
In Verdi's "Rigoletto," in which
the music and text are integrated
and the orchestral accompaniment

helps set the mood and augment
the vocal portions, the vowel artic-
ulation of the original language is
all-important. This is one of the
factors that gives grand opera its
beauty, White remarked.
A translation of the libretto
would, obviously, not be a true rep-
resentation of Verdi's creativity.
Such music best fits the original,
not a translation, he continued.
Besides, opera-goers are so fa-
miliar with the texts of grand
opera, either from the libretto or
the literary work upon which the
libretto was based, that it is not
necessary for a performance in
any language other than the orig-
inal, White added.
.For LSA Unit
Petitions for positions on the
literary college steering committee
will be available next Monday in
Rm. 1210, Angell Hall.
The petitions must be turned in
by Dec. 6. An open meeting of the
committee will be held at 4 p.m.
of the same day for petitioners.
Petitioners will be interviewed on
Saturday, Dec. 8.
The steering' committee meets
weekly with faculty members to
discuss issues concerning literary
college students. In the past, the
committee has initiated such pro-
grams as the junior year abroad.
At present, the committee is dis-
cussing the proposed new small
college, ways of improving coun-
seling for students, and criticisms
of the present credit-hour sys-
tem for upperclassmen.

Dial 5-6290

Until recently the European
opera houses presented operas al-
most exclusively in the language
of the country, because the singers
had no time to learn foreign lan-
Often, in a performance which
included a guest artist, the guest
sang his or her part in one lan-
guage while the other members of
the cast sang in the language of
the country, White noted.
With the advent of the airplane
has come the phenomenon of a
world opera star. Because this
person sings in many countries the
opera companies have decided, to
avoid unnecessary confusion, to
perform grand opera iin the orig-
inal language of the text.
