Noted Sculptor Illustrates Talk
On Technique By Making
Clay Figure
Developing a figure in clay before
the audience, Prof. Avard Fair-
banks .spoke on the technique of
sculpturing Wednesday afternoon
in the West Gallery of Alumni Me-
morial hall. The figure which he
roughly modeled was that of a
primitive man, and was fashioned
in less than 45 minutes.
"Art," ProfessorFairbanks said,
"is not an imitative impulse, but
creative. The creative artist does
not make the figure and then name
it, but rather first conceives the
idea, and then models the clay."
Professor Fairbanks explained
how the human form in sculpture
has been taken out of the parallel
horizontal and vertical planes
which the Egyptians used, and
brought into the natural positions,
I the Greeks being the first to
acurately observe the movement of
the body and muscles.rDraperies
on sculptured figures are not to
cover the body, but rather'to en-
hance the rythm and movement of
the body.
"A nation's whole life and ex-
periences may be understood
through a thorough understanding
of its art," he concluded, "and the
greater that understanding, the
greater is the aesthetic growth of a
Doctor Gives Speech
On Scientist's Views
About Vegetarianism
Lecture Illustrated By Slides Taken
To Show Harm Of Acids Resulting
From Excessive Meat Diet
Scientific evidence concerning
vegetarianism as a diet -for human
beings was presented by Dr. Louis
H. Newburgh, director of clinical
investigation at the University hos-
pital, in a lecture, "A Scientist's
View of Vegetarianism," given yes-'
terday afternoon in Natural Science
Approaching the question from a
chemical point of view, Dr New-1.
burgh related how in thepast 10'
years research had shown that any
harm that might arise from meat-
eating would have to come from
meat's high protein content. Slides
illustrating the detrimental effects
of a diet excessively rich in this
food were shown and the speaker
explained that it had been proved
that protein is made up of some 25
amino acids, some of which have
been definitely proved harmful to
the body.
The lecture was sponsored by the
Tolstoy league, since it was one of
the great Russian novelist's princi-
ples that man should eat no meat,
not only for physical reasons but
because of spiritual ones as well.
A vegetarian supper is to be held
tonight at Lane Hall tavern, to
which the public is invited. Tickets
are 75 cents.
Due to a clerical blunder on the
part of the state senate finacenco-
mittee, the University has been de
prived of its own cash fund,
amounting to more than $2,215,000.
The Univrrsity ha a round-about
method of hr nv its own funds,
being requirod to pay all fees and
other cash receipts into the state
treasury. The legislature in turn
appropriates the necessary funds
for the ensuing biennium.
The rifle team is preparing for
the N. R. A. matches and hopes to

make good in the Eastern cham-
pionship competition. They have
shown a remarkable skill in han-
dling the pieces, and a victory
