Artist to Make Tour of Middle West:
WIl Return to France 4
"By reviving a movement which
started in the 18th century we have
begun a work which is meeting with
much success in Europe and is begin-
ning to be admired by art circles
throughout the United States as fast
as the work Is distributed." Georges
Plasse, who is personally directing
the exhibit of the works of this new
school of French etchers and paint-
ers, stated in an interview yesterday.
"The etchings, combined with a
process of aqua-tintings, as begun in
the 18th century died out without
much lasting success. Only a few of
these works are now existing and are
owned by the art connoisseurs of
Paris. Twenty years ago several of
my colleagues, among whom are Jour-
dain, T. F. Simon, Paul Emile Le-
comte, Louis Icart, W. S. Lambrecht
and myself, grouped together to revive
this almost dead art. We formed the
Society of Original Etchers in Color
and our standards were and are that
all work must be original, none
should be copied, and that we put our
whole life into it, Beginning as a
group of less than a dozen artists, our
association now numbers more than
25, of whom 15 have already met with
much success.
Exhibited In Boston.
"For eighteen years our work has
been exhibited at the art store of
George Petit in Paris, who has the
most valuable art collection in
France. Two years ago we conducted
an exhibition of my personal etchings
in Boston, where my work was very
successful. I have come direct from
Boston and because of the reception
of my work in that city I brought
back with me the work of my associ-
ates, which is shown here."
Versality Necessary.
"To do this work one must be a
painter, an etcher, and a creator com-
bined. Thus we reach a marked orig-
inality of character, and each artist
makes his own plates and proofs.
Colored ink is used on the copper
plates and every proof is numbered
and signed by the artist himself. Ten
of each are made by the artist him-
self, while some have more done by
highly skilled workmen who are able
to do no more than four in one day.
One reason why this is impossible in
Amrica is that no men are valable
who are skilled to the degree neces-
sary. When 350 copies of each etch-
ing are sold the plate is destroyetch
scratching up the surface. d by
"In fifteen years I have done 77
etchings, 20 of which have been ex-
hibited in the United States. In ten
years more than 2000 copies have been
sold, while in the United States only
300 have been sold in the past two
years. This is not astounding, but
when we consider that the movement
is totally strange to the American,. it
shows a good result. M. Henry Jour-
dain, who is much interested in rend-
ering winter scenes, has done 350
etchings in the 20 years of tle growth
of the new movement, 96 of which are
now out of print.
Shows Variety of Tastes
"We each have our individual tech-
nique and work along special lines
which interest us the most. I like the
quaint and picturesque old buildings
in unique settings, while Jourdain pre-
fers the winter scenes, although he
handles other seasons, equally as

I Vanishing girls are making
Archeology a lively arcourse, if j
what Prof. D. M. Robinson, of
Johns Hopkins University, re- {
I cently said is true..
I "While walking with a young j
Armenian through the hills ofj
Sardis, which are honeycombed
with ancient tombs my friend
j stopped suddenly and cried "I j
smell a tomb.' I was not per- j
suaded, but after digging a fewj
j feet we did actually find a tomb.
j "The surprising experience, j
however, was when I opened thel
door of the tomb and saw a beau-j
tiful girl perfectly preserved,
j surrounded by Etruscan vasesj
and urns. I rushed to tell my j
colleagues of the discovery. But j
when I returned the girl had van-
ished as completely as if she had
been a dream."
The explanation that is givenj
is that the modern air was thej
cause of the body's crumbling,
j magically into the dust of the air.

YPne Moriya, 'E3, Tells Tale O
Tragedy In Letter To
Out of the ruins of Yokohama and
Tokyo, Japan, comes a message from
a Michigan graduate, Yone Moriya, '23,j
who in a letter to the residents of
Martha Cook dormitory, describes the
horrors and reality of the recent
earthquake and fire which ravaged
prosperous, modern cities of Japan,
leaving only ashes, heaps of ruins
and a few brick-buildings-mere emp-
ty shells now, their interior having
been completely burned.
*After four years residence in the
University of Michigan, Yone Moriya
and Kita Fukui, '23, received their de-
grees and journeyed. to Japan. Kita
Fukui is dead now. The merciless
quake shook the walls of her home
which caved in and killed Ki.ta, her
mother, sister and a baby. Only Yone
lives to tell the story.
"An earthquake, such as the recent
one," writes Miss Moriya, "can scarce-
ly be realized. Our home shook vio-
lently, window glass rattled, the walls
swayed back and forth, pictures, fur-,
niture-everything fell down, while
the plaster from the walls fell in
showers about us. It was as though
Hercules had lifted the house with
his enormous grasp and shaken it
with all the wrath of Zeus."
Violent quakes followed the first
shock for many days, according to
Miss Moriya's description, the popu-
lation of Omori, which is a suburb
halfway between Tokyo and Yoko-
hama, lived in the streets or along
the railroad, these being the only
places of safety from falling houses
and roofs. They cooked their meals
and slept on boards and matting in the

A field expedition for the purpose of
collecting plants and shells was con-
ducted last summer by W. J. Clench,
grad., and L. E. Wehmeyer, grad. The
work extended over the states of Mich-
igan, Indiana, Illinois, Missouri, Ar-
kansas, Tennessee, Mississippi, Ala-
bama and Florida.
Considerable time was spent in the
Ozark mountains of Missouri and Ar-
kansas, the first work being done
along the Black river. Bad roads
were encountered in the Ozarks, ac-
cording to Clench. There were prac-
tically no bridges. Streams too large
to be forded were crossed on barges
and the smaller ones in the automo-
bile which the party was using.
S Later in the season five days were
spent on the Black Warrior river near
Tuscaloosa, Florida, threedays at
Talahassee, Florida, and three weeks
on Sanibel Island. Collecting was
carried on all along the way.
Besides the plants and shells fdr
I which the party was searching other
specimens such as fish, insects and
reptiles were collected. Most of the
fish were marine, found in the bay
along the surf of Sanibel islan. All
the material gathered, approximately
25,000 specimens, is now the property
of the university.
The expedition was supported joint-
ly b the men engaged the zoological

M. S. Rice, as well as President Bur-(

Five Flivers In
Race To Michigan-
Iowa Grid Battle
An unusual event connected with
the game Saturday was a race between
five flivvers from Ann Arbor to IowaI
City. All the cars were of the well
known Detroit make and were from
four to five years old. There were
no prizes offered but the competition
was none the less keen.

Program Offered Nov. 26 Includes
Many Unusual Features of
Ruth St. Denis, in her concert here
on Monday evening Nov. 26 in Hill
auditorium, in combination with Ted
Shawn and the Denishawn company
will continue in the line of the visual-
izing of music which the famous d4nc-
er has so successtuly offered to the
public in, recent years. The new of-
ferings in music this year will be com-
positions of American composers in
contrast, to, fornmer years when the
musical works. were the products of
foreign composers. "Music Visualiza-
tion" is a term invented by Miss St.
Denis more to express clearly the pur-
pose of the dancer than in order to
avoid the words "Interpretive" and
"Classic" which do not fit her perform-
ance so exactly.
The first section of the program
in music visualizations will be
"Sonata Tragica" and "Polonaise."
The dance writing of the first is by
Doris Humphrey and the "Polonaise"
by Ted Shawn. Musical background
for these visualizations will be fur-
nished by compositions of MacDowell.
Indian Pastoral Offered
"The Spirit of the Sea," an element-
al dance poem, will be the second of-
fering on the program, Miss St. Denis
interpreting the leading role. "Two
American Humoresques" follow.
A pueblo pastoral, "The Feather of
the Dawn," is the next offering, Ted
Shawn taking the role of the "Kwahu,"
the Eagle. The music used was writ-,
ten by Charles Wakefield Cadman.
Costumes are original Hopi Indian
pieces, the duplications being made
at Denishawn, and the headdresses
used were executed by Earle Franke
from authentic designs.
' Stage Spanish Scene
The story of the action of the next
dance, called "Cuadro Flamenco,' a
Spanish Gypsy dance scene, takes
place in a. native cafe, the evening
following the popular bull fight. The
flower girls are plying their trade,
and the cafe life.is just beginning to
get gay. Lalanda enters.in full re-
galia and is persuaded to recount his
afternoon's triumphs -.on the field.
Then the Cuadro Flamenco starts the
night's entertainment of singing and
dancing. La Macarena comes on for
her number. At the end, Lalanda, who
had been her ardent suitor, demands
an answer. She tells him that in re-
turn for the most beautiful shawl in

Examinations at Louvain University,
Belgium, are all oral, and no marks
are made during the term to help out
in case of a pinch, according to Pro-
fessor Maurice DeWuli of that Uni-
versity. Students are not allowed to
continue their course if they have
failed in any of their subjects, but
must repeat the full year. Anyone
wishing to study for a profession must
take the course prescribed by the par-
liament, with no choice of elections.
