Characterizes New School as Expon-
ent of the Simple, Rough and
Declaring that the menacing enemy
of art and of the school of art is "In-
dividualism" and that this is nowon
the way to decadence, M. Leon Bakst,
noted artist, prophesied in his lecture
last night in Hill auditorium that the
art of the future, that which will de-'
velop during the twentieth century,
will be "simple, rough, primitive, and
will deal with the beauties of the hu-
man body".
"The painting of the future will be-
gin by detesting the old stylesto pro-
duce a new generation of artists,
drawn into the new road, opening up
today of which we still know but lit-,
tle and which frightens us and is re-
pugnant to our organism," asserted M.
Bakst after reviewing the evolution
of art from the times of Grecian paint-
ing and sculpture.
Contrasts Ages of Art
In contrasting the various ages of ,
art and the schools of art which have
developed, the sp'eaker pointed out
that, between the thirteenth and fif-
teenth centuries in Italy, artists op-
ened up their own studios and boys1
around 12 and 13 years of age were
allowed to go into the studios and in
this way learned art directly from1
the head of the studio, with the youngt
pupils following out explicitly the or-
ders of the instructor.
That the three characteristics of
children's painting, "sincerity, move-1
ment, and clear, pure color", will be-
come a characteristic of art of the E
future was another of M. Bakst's pre-
dictions. "ie stated that modern ar-'
tists are blind to their own faults7
and that "they have allowed a weed
to grow over naive and direct inspir-
Predicts Change of Style i
"The three qualities of art whichl
children under 12 possess should be-
long to all great schools of art," the
speaker added. "Two-thirds of all of
the pictures of modern mature artists
are not inspired from the heart but
from the mind."
In describing the manner in which
the people of today will pass to the.
new art, M. Bakst said that "we will
strike the new art from the awkward
side from the coarse viewpoint. The
blazers of the trail will be the vic-!
tims. The art itself will be entirely
different, however."
After the formal part of the lec-
ture, slides showing various designs'
were exhibited on the screen with the
speaker of the evening explaining the
styles and commenting on their sig-

The Week's News
In Brief
The following column is a sur-
vey of news of the world during
the past week. An attempt has
been made to present the news
as concisely as possible.
The Bok prize peace plan was an-
nounced. It favors entrance of the
United States into the World war and
co-operation with the League of Na-
tibns-the latter to become an arbit-
ral rather than a coercive body. See
page nine.
* * *
Frank Hendrick, New York lawyer
and a loser in the peace contest, plans
to fight Bok, claiming that the juryi
did not read all the plans. He is at-!
tempting to interest the irreconcil-
able senators, who oppose the plan
any way, in his cause.
* * *

The president refused to budge an
inch from his stand on the Mellon tax
reduction plan. He says Congress may3
mangle it if it wants but that the re-
sult is likely to be no tax reduction
at all. The democrats want more re-
duction for small incomes and less
reduction of taxes on the large ones.-
By this proposal they hope to posej
as the poor man's friend and capital-I
ism's enemy.I

national law, said: "If the American

Senator Lodge brought evidence to
prove that the Soviet government and

that the latter was organized by the

The President placed an embargo

Shepard Says Laboratory Will Be
Unique Feature of
Announcement was made by the
building and grounds department last
night that the contract for the new
nurse's dormitory has been let to{
the H. G. Christenson company con-
tracting firm, at an estimated amount
of $600,000.
The firm to which the construction
of the building has been let is the
same which had charge of the con-
struction work of the Yost field house,
the model High School and the engin-
eering shops.
"The new dormitory is to be con-1
structed and is planned more on the
designs of a home, and it is intended
to create this atmosphere rather than
that of the usual type of University
buildings," said Prof. John F. Shep-
ard, supervisor of the building plans
of the University, in reference to the
design of the building, last night.
"The building, as the plans stipulate
now, is to be one unit of the future
dormitories and will be constructed
on the site that is located at the cor-
ner of 14th and Ann streets, just west
of the observatory.
The funds for the new Nurses dorm-
itory wore donated to the University
by Senator James G. Couzens of De-
troit on April 17, 1923. Originally the
funds were incorporated in the Uni-
.versity appropriations bill which was,;
at the time- of the announcement of
Senator Couzen's gift, in the hands of
the ways and means committee in
Governor Alex J. Grosbeck then re-
quested that this item be struck off
from. the appropriations bill,
The new dormitory is to be unique
in construction and a model of its
type. ,The building which has been
made possible by the Detroit multi-
millionaire's gift will house 250
nurses and besides the living quarters
will have teaching laboratories and

PerIod Scoreless; Peterma
Reynolds Account for
Three Goals


In a fast, clean game Michigan's
hockey sextet won its first game of
the season last night by taking the
Notre Dame aggregation into camp by
a score of 3-1.
The first period was devoid of both
scoring and penalties but the play
was fast with both teams employing
defensive tactics until they could feel
out their adversaries.
In the second period Captain Eddie
Kahn took the puck near his own end
of the rink and rushed it down the
ice then shot it to Reynolds, who
drove it past the Notre Dame goal ten-
der for the first score of the game.
The Irish came back strong for the
last part of the contest and, after sev-
en minutes and 50 seconds of play,
Timmens received a pass from Stack
and tied the score with a goal. The
Catholics were not allowed to hold na-
tters even, however, for Peterman took
the puck, carried it down the ice and
shot a beautiful goal at a consider-
able distance. Reynolds ended the
scoring by shooting another goal,
which was also accomplished on a
pass from Kahn.
In spite of the fact that the Wol-
verines plainly lacked practice, the
victory was a decided encouragement
to Michigan rooters as the team show-
ed great possibilities. The play of the
new men was noteworthy and the vet-
erans lived up to expectations by per-
forming in their old-time form. There
were no real individual stars, al-
though Reynolds at center put up a
great game. Captain Kahn also show-
ed'exceptionally clever hockey.

Paris, Jan. 12.-The reply of France
and Belgium to Germany's memoran-
dum requesting discussion of points
growing out of the occupation of the

on the general principle that modifica-

A showing by Germany of good will
to meet her obligations, and a real

do so, will justify discussion of mod-
