Lecture Is Illustrated With Slides
Of Architecture, Landscapes,
And Native Costumes
"Roumanians are largely unknown
and generally imagined' to be a far
different race, but as a matter of fact-
they are much like ourselves," said
Charles Upson Clark, ;scholar, travel-
ler, and author, speaking last night in)
tHill auditorium on the Oratorical as-
sociation lecture series. "If there is
one notable difference between them s
and us it lies in the fact that 90 per-
cent of the native Roumanians are
farmers and the business of the coun-l
try is largely in the hands of for-
Mr. Clark explained that it is a co- I
mon belief among the people of the
western world that Roumanians are
not extremely capable either in gov-
ernment or in intellectual pursuits,
but that the belief is wrong. "Mark
me, I don't say they are extremely
gifted, but to accuse them of corrup-,
tion is likewise unfair, for comparedE
with Pennsylvania and Ohio, politicss
in Roumania are as clean as they are
here," he said.
Are Descended From Dacians
The inhabitants of this country are
descended from the ancient Dacians
and the Romans who overcame thel
land, the speaker explained. Though
the Roman occupation lasted only l
about 150 years, the language of the
country is still based upon Latin,
and this is the morearemarkable when
one remembers that there was no!
written tongue there until long after
Vandals, Goths, and other uncivilized
tribes had swept over the land.
Of all the nations of the Balkan
peninsnia the two parts of Roumania
called Wallachia and Moldavia weret
the only nations not overcome by the
Turks when they were at the heyday
of their power. Moslem, in every
treaty, recognized these two sections
as free and independent, and they
never had a Mohammedan ruler over
them or had their land owned by Mo-
hammedans. In the fifteenth century
the country emerged politically andt
also at this time the language of theE
nation was written when the Trans-
ylvanian Lutherans tried to convert
the country to the Reformation and
the Protestant faith.
Roumanians Were Abused
Mr.-Clark told then of the treat-
ment of the minority nationalities of'
Europe b'efore the war, explaining how
the Roumanians who were under the
jurisdiction of the Hungarian govern-
ment, were abused. The same thing
is happening now except that the
Roumanians are in power now and the
Hungarians are subjugated The
speaker believes that conditions in
that part of Europe have improved,
however, and the the Roumanjians
treat the Hungarians better than they1
were treated previously.
During the war when the Germans
oversame Roumania the country was
exploited for its great natural re-
sources. Disease ravished the coun-
try in this period and one tenth of
the entire population was wipd out
by one cause or another.{

Relief Crews Fight Dar ege of Flood;
River Reaches 58 I oot Mark '
In 'Pomeroy, Ohio{
(By Associated Press)
CINCINNATI, Jan. 24-The swollen!
waters of the Ohio river were rising
in Cincinnati tonight with the pros-
, ects that the flood which has affect-
ed the low territory of five bordering
states wil reach its highest level here
sometime tomorrow.
Municipal authorities and relief
agencies joined tonight to combat flood
damage. The river is expected to reach
59 feet here tomorrow. This is one foot
higher than the crest of 58 feet reached
at Pomeroy, Ohio, today. The flood
promises to be the most severe in Cin-
cinnati since 1918.
Streetcar lines in the lowland ter-{
ritories has been cut off. Damage prob-
ably will be confined to the lowlands
as the main business and residential
districts will not be effected.
Cheering news came from up the,
river. The waters were reported falling
at Pittsburgh, Pa., Steubenville, and'
East Liverpoole, Ohio, with the crest of
the flood early tonight at Portsmouth
about 40 miles above here. Rain which
has falen during the past several days

showed that damage is comparativelyl
slight. Residents of lowlands. of the
course of the river had ample oppor-
tunity to move household goods to the
second floors of the homes and in the
business districts stores were barri-
ceded to prevent the water entering.
This was the case at Pomeroy where
most of the busihess section was un-
der water. Business was curtailed,'
however, in Marietta, and several
other river towns.
Mimes T o Present
Two Shaw Dramas
During Next Month
As first attraction in a series of
dramatic presentations to be given
} next semester, Mimes will offer George
Bernard Shaw's "Man of Destiny,"
Feb. 15, 16, 17, and 18, in Mimes thea-
ter. The cast for this presentation
has been picked with care, and the
play will be given with careful atten-
tion to detail, according to reports.
Rehearsals were begun a week ago.
"The Man of Destiny" will be pre-
ceded by Shaw's "Annajanska, theI
Bolshevik Empress," a one-act play-;
let, and productions will be presented
on the same bill each night. "The ManI
of Destiny" was first produced in this
j country by Arnold Daly at the Gar-
rick theater in New York with success.

the War, was produced in London, but

Was Picked By Coaches And Officials,
Who Gave Friedman Twice More
Votes Than Joesting
Benny Friedman was presented with
the third annual Chicago Tribune
trophy for the "most useful player to
his team" last night between the
halves of the Michigan-Minnesota-
basketball game, by Harvey T. Wood-
ruff of the Tribune.
Friedman was the choice of ten
coaches, nine officials, Commissioner
Grfiffith, and Mr. Woodruff, all of whom
composed the committee for the selec-
tion. Each judge had two choices, a
first and second choice. Friedman, in
the balloting, received more than
twice the votes that Joseting received,
who was given second place.
"The choice is made on the grounds
of distinguished service," Woodruff
said, prior to the presentation. "Not'
only must he be a good football play-
er but also a sportsman of merit," he
continued, "and it is significant to
note that a lineman won the award last
year--Tim Lowry-so that not always
are ball carriers, who are in the lime-
light, of most value to a team."
"Friedman has the generalship of1
the choice of plays and players for the
plays; a smooth attack just does not
happen for it is figured out," he said.
"Friedman lives up to Yost"s state-
ment that he is the best defenmive
tackler he ever saw," he concluded.
The award is a sterling silver foot-
ball of regulation size and is mounted
on a pedestal. The trophy will be on
display in a State street store some-
time during the week.

McCoy Leuds Attack Against North.

Michigan c'ontinued on its non-stop
flight toward the Western Conference
asketball title by flying over Min-
r esota last night, and made a safe
anding at the top of the Big Ten,
oncluding the first half of its journey
with five successful hops and suffer-

Minnesota made a strong effort to

n 12 points of accomplishing its mis-
ion, falling into the discard in its
aecond attack on CoachMather's

Oosterbaan caught the ball on the
opening tip-off and dribbled down un-
der the basket for a short shot. Har-
rigan added a point on a free throw.
Otterness, star forward of the Min-
nesota team, scored the first point for
he visitors on a successful try at a
free throw. On an out of bounds
?lay, Chambers tossed the ball under
he basket to McCoy, who dropped
the ball through the hoop, giving the
Wolverines a four-point lead.
Stark Breaks Through
Stark, the fast left forward of the
Gopher five, broke away'from Harri-

gan defense for a short shot. Petrie
added a point on a free throw and
McCoy brought the score to 8-3 by
scoring a goal on a follow-up shot.
Seven minutes had passed and Michi-
gan had scored eight points.
McCoy and Chambers each scored
field goals, and left the Gophers
nursing the small end of a 12 to 3
