Art Display In Architecture
Corridor Shows Excellent Work

Frequently during the year, exhibi-
tions of drawings appearing in the
corridor of the Architecture school are
announced. Just no wthere is an, ex-
hibition on display of about eighteen
drawings, several water colors and the
rest etchings, which is well worth see-
ing. With one exception the drawings
are architectural in subject but they
are treated with a feeling that is sel-
dom found in an architectural draw-
ing. There is in them a fine balance, a
perfect subordination of useless de-'
tail and a grouping that shows an ex-
cellent appreciation of the subject.
The technique of the etchings shows

Library Establiv1Oed In Effort To
Away Itah International
A l'ejudices


«A' scientist has his laboratory for
e discovery of facts," said Dr. Ran-
dolph, custodian of the Clements Li-
brary, in an interview yesterday, "and
the scientific scholar of American His-
tory has the Clements library for the
same purpose. When a scientist is ac-
tuated by the desire to prove a theory
he is apt to overlook the facts. That
is what has been done in historical
fields until the last 10 years. The at-:
titude of historical scholars is now}
changing to that of the scientist who
regards the gleaning of facts as morer
important than the use to which they
.re to be put afterwards."
In each chemical laboratory there
is one person to do the analytical
work and one to do the synthetic. The
former corresponds to the possibilities
offered by the Clements Library to
historical investigators, a place where
one can ascertain for himself the di-
rect facts of history. The latter is a
field of its own not directly concerned
with the precincts of the library. The
subject has been believed to be simple
and easy of knowledge, when in real-
ity the facts are 'neither. The con-E
ception of the historical scholar is
that anything unknown is a fit sub-(
ject for investigation, and in histori-r
cal circles the realm of the unknownI
is appallingly great.1

The University has received through
Regent Hubbard a specimen of native
float copper which bears a distinct
resemblance to the face of an Indian
chieftian. The specimen was struck
yby a plow as it lay concealed in a field
'in Hloughton County, Michigan, and
was dug up. The mineralogy depart-,
ment obtained the slab as an example
,of float copper, and it was not until
;photographs were made that the face
'was observed.
The slab is 42 inches long by 32
in width and weighs about 483 pounds.
Its upper surface is striated by glac-
ial action, and some portions of the
edge have been rounded off by arti-
ficial means.
Dr. E. H. Kraus, Professor of Min-
eralogy and Crystallography express-
ed a belief that the copper had broken
away from the rock in which it had
been formed, thus becoming "float"
copper, and that it had been subse-
quently glaciated. Dean Kraus sug-
gests that the slab was later found byf
an Indian who recognized the facial
resemblance, and, with a stone ham-
mer, moulded the features more per-
fectly, and probably set it up as a
totem or idol. Later, in some manner,
the slab fell from its support and was

a variation that affords an excellent
opportunity for study in different
methods. Some exhibit an exquisite
delicacy of line, others an admirable
handling of broad masses. A few of

These drawings were mostly select-
ed from a collection brought to this
country by a Czecho-Slovakian artist.

Exhibitions of drawings are given
frequently in the Architectural School
and the interest in them is not nearly
so popular as it should be considering
the quality of the work exhibited. The
School of Architecture is gradually
acquiring a collection that will stand
comparison with many of the best in
the country. It is planned to place all
the pictures acquired on permanent ex-
hibition when the completion of the

tr David Lloyd George, former
I Premier of Great Britain, accompan-
ed by his wife and daughter, arrived
in New York October 5 to begin a
speaking tour in Canada and parts of
-*Ithe United States. This is his first
c,=visit to this country.
I The former premier was escorted
- from the Battery, where he landed,
through an almost unbroken lane of
people, to the City Hall, where he
was officially welcomed by the acting
-'a.. I mayor. Responding to the welcome
in his first sneech on American soil,
he thanked America for her part in
the World War, spoke feelingly upon
"e.. the chaos in Europe, and said that his
first duty and principal message was

to see this "great country."
