sor it." "The viewer is disgusted
with girls carressing refriger-
ators," he said.
Rejects Theory
Prof. Kuowenhoven disagreed
with the theory that advertising
developed because the supply out-
stripped the demand and that an
institution which influenced and
oriented the consumer was nec-
essary. Advertising, according to
this theory, became a social insti-.
tution and adopted specific values.
To illustrate his point, Prof.
Kuowenhoven described an award
winning advertisement. The ad-
vertisement had a quotation which
was called a "great idea" of west-
ern man. Between the two lines
of the quotation was a modern art
picture entitled, "Primevial Wall."
"There is no reason to buy a
container because it is associated
with art or the ideas of western
man. The quotation was 'A teach-
er effects eternity He never
knows where his influence stops.'
The same idea. also applies to a
bartender. Re never knows where
his influence stops either," Prof.
Kuowenhoven quipped. "The great
ideas of western man cannot be
condensed into capsule form."
"There is no relationship be-
tween the painting and the quo-
tation," he continued. "The use of
art helps the artist rather than
art itself."
Advertising should not appeal
to the itandards about which
people revolve. Instead the adver-
tising industry ought to be free
to adopt its own values and allow
creativeness to flourish.
Speech Dept.
Presents Play
By 'U' Student
A drama by a Michigan play-
wright continues its premiere per-
formance at 8 p.m. tonight at
Trueblood Aud. in the Frieze Bldg.
as the final offering in this semes-
ter's speech department playbill.
Norman Foster's "Journey to a
Distant Point" was originally writ-
ten for a playwriting course taught
by Prof. Kenneth Rowe of the
English department.
An unusual technique used in
this play is that the principal
character is the only actor who
appears in the entire play. The
other characters appear in only
one act.k.
In three acts, "Journey to a
Distant Point" tells of a young
man who has the potential to be
a great leader of men, but who
lacks the necessary confidence.
Under the pressure of war, the
young man matures; in each act
he is presented in a different situ-
ation, growing in confidence
through experience.
The production is offered as a
bonus production for season ticket
buyers, but tickets will also be
available at 7:00 p.m. tonight at
the Trueblood box office on per-
formance evenings.
The play is directed by Prof.
Jack E. Bender of the speech
department, with costuming by
Elizabeth Birbari and scenic de-
signs by Ralph W. Duckwall, Jr.

"The purpose of Engineering
Weekend is to let the campus know
about the engineering school's
work," Roger Levy, '60E, project
chairman said yesterday.
There are about 100 displays in
the open house, of which most are
located on the North Campus. The
exhibits are representative of all
departments of the school and
many outside industries.
Transportation will be provided
by free busses which will leave
the Engineering Arch every fifteen
minutes from 9 a.m. until noon
and 1-5:30 p.m. today and 2-5 p.m.
Types of displays range from a
machine asking general questions
about scientific knowledge to a
mobile laboratory which tests the
endurance of automobile engines.
The Automotive Laboratory,
Atomic Reactor, Fluids Engineer-
ing, and Aeronautical Laboratories
are the four North Campus build-
ings which will house the displays
during the above stated hours.
One of the most modern dis-
plays is a battery used in satel-
lites to power transmitters which
operate as long as the satellite
