Science Auditorium
Returning to the United States

M. Andre Chevrillon will lecture
March 13 in Natural Science audi-
torium on "Taine, His Method and
.Formation," it was announced yes-
terday by Prof. Hugo P. Thiene, of
the Romance language department.
The departments of philosophy
and the Romance languages are
combining to bring Chevrillon here,,
since the scope of his work covers
subjects of interest to both depart-
ments. The lecture will be de-
livered in English and there will be
no rcharge for admission, it has
been announced.
'Chevrillon has a long record of
scholarly achievement, according to
Professor Thieme. Born in 1864, he
was educated at the University
school in London and the Ecole
A;sacienne -and Lycee Louis I
Grand, in Paris.

His university degrees were taken
at the Sorbonne, where he special-'
lead in English literature, return-
ng often to England, where he
-knew many of the leading authors
" nd artists of the time. He taught
literathre at Lille from 1893 to
1894, receiving his doctor of litera-
ture degree in 1893.
.Since 1894, Chevrillon has spent
'most of his time writing. He has
been a contributor for 22 years to
the Revue de Paris and for 35 years
to the Revue des Deux Mondes. He
Is at present writing a book on
Tane, of whom he is a nephew. His
lecture here will include some of
the material gathered in the pre-
paration of this work, it is prom-
ised. He has written several books
on England and English literature,
two of which have been translated
into English. One of these, "Brit-
ain and the War,"' was prefaced by
Rudyard Kipling.
Has Visited India .
Chevrillon has twice visited India
and has written two books on India,
and on Hindu thought. In addition,
he has traveled extensively in
Egypt, Syria, Morroco, Tunis, Al-
giers, Europe, and the United
States, Prdfessor Thieme says. He
was sent as a delegate of the
French Ministry -for Education to
the Chicago Exhibition in 1893, and
as a delegate of the French Acad-
emy to New York for the centenary
of Moliere in 1922.
Chevrillon is a member of the
French Academy and a Fellow of
the Royal Society of literature in
Great Britain. Then Chevrillon
visited America a few years ago,
accompanied by M. Maurice Don-
nay, the playwright, both are re-
ported to have been most en-
thusiastically received.

Score Is Close Throughout Game;
First Half Is Marked By
Erratic Playing
By ,Charles R. Kaufman
EVANSTON, Ill., Feb. 11.-North-
western overcame a three point
handicap in the last two minutes
to defeat Michigan by a single
point margin in a rough and tum-
ble contest here tonight. The Wild-
cats victory toppled the Wolver-
ines from their place at the top
of the standing into a three-way
tie with Purdue and Wisconsin for
the lead in the Big Ten race.
Michigan held a three point lead
at the half, but the Wildcats
passed the Wolverines after five
minutes of frenzied basketball ear-
ly in the second period. The ad-
vantage then .alternated with no
more than one point separating the
teams till short shots by Orwig and
Rose in rapid succession gave
Michigan her final lead.
