By CAROLINE DOW
"Architecture should be the ex-
pression of the intellectual, emo-
tional and spiritual culture of
humanity rather than the expres-
sion of mere structure," Prof.
Carl Condit, of Northwestern Uni-
versity said yesterday.
Speaking on "Architecture and
the Intellectual and Technical
World," Condit stressed the archi-
tect's role in interpreting and
finding stability in the twentieth
century in the media of the "most
public of all arts."
The modern tendency to reduce
form to the basic structural re-
quirements and then add extrava-
gant detail to satisfy the materi-
alism and pride of modern cul-
ture, makes art serve technique
rather than technique serving art.
Seek Stability
Condit feels that modern art-
ists seek the obvious stability of

terials, reduces the building to its
structural constituents and also
reduces visual pleasure until it is
exhausted in one glance.
Mass Culture
The construction and details of
this basic structure makes the
early traditional architecture
shallow by comparison, but it is a

Membership
Requirement
By ROBERT FARRELL
Membership provisions of the
Student Government Council plan
and the advisibility of changing
them were subjects of discussion at
'the Council meeting Wednesday.
Holding the first discussion on
a proposal submitted by Inter-
quadrangle Council President Bor-
en Chertkov, '60, the Council con-
sidered possible improvements in
the internal structure and effici-
ency.
Proposal Explained
Chertkov's proposal provided for
the addition of more members
from the ex-officio organizations
and the reduction of the number
of elected members. However,
Chertkov said that he wanted the
proposal to serve as a basis of dis-
cussion of the whole area of pos-
sible improvements.
In his rationale, Chertkov said
that his system would provide good
representation since Panhellenic,
Assembly, the Interfraternity
Council and IQC all represented
large groups of students.
Also, he added, the system would
provide members with more ex-
perience because the ex-officios
would have worked their ways up
through their organizations.
The proposal would also give

The Michigan Academy of Sci-
ence, Arts, and Letters yesterday
received for consideration two
resolutions bearing on Michigan
high school education.
The Council will decide whether
to recommend the resolutions at
the Academy's business meeting
tomorrow.

In an attempt to encourage
"sound intellectual growth in high
school students who will continue

Members
The local chapter of Pi Sigma
Alpha, national political science
honorary fraternity, held its ini-
tiation banquet at the League last

sets forth minimum requirements
in six high school subjects.
The prospective college student
would need to take four years of
English (two years of English
composition with a theme a week
required), two years of history,
one year of American govern-
ment, four years of one foreign
language, four years of mathe-
matics, and three years of science.
The other resolution recom-
mends that the Bureau of School
Services be continued as a part
of the University, rather than
being transferred to the State
Department of Public Instruction.
The resolutions are being pre-
sented by Prof. Ralph W. Lewis of
Michigan State Unviersity,
Attend Meeting
