'Pf jects, on Exhibit in College
6f Architecture, Lauded
'y Prof. Bennett.
Miuch Space Occupied by Works
of Pupils of European
Modern Leader.
Architectural projects, including
photographs, pians and drawings
of Peter Behrens, distinguished
German architect of Vienna, are
on display in the exhibition room
and corridors of the College of Ar-
chitecture. The exhibit will re-
ihain until the close of the month.
The works of Behrens, and also
of his pupils, were brought here
from Vienna through the Brook-
lyn Museum of Arts.
Is Epoch Making Work
The exhibition, Prof. Wells Ben-
nett said, is "an impressive review
of the epoch-making work of one
man. The most characteristic and
finest of these works are the fac-
tories and business structures o
the A. E. G.--Germany's General
Electric company."
The exhibit includes models and
pictures of manufacturing plants,
homes, steamships, lighthouses, ho-.
tels, double-decked traffic streets.,
and many other projects.
Professor Bennett, in speaking of
the famous German architect's
vworks, characterized Behrens as "a
pioneer in making these distinctly
modern forms of building both
more serviceable and more beauti-
ful by appropriate architectural
treatment. Both the drawings an
models show live appreciation of
the third dimension, of an archi-
tecture that is not a 'paper' style
but a virile wrestling with modern
construction and design. That
Behrens was a painter before he
was an architect may explain the
many imaginative offerings and
their striking presentation."
Students' Work Shown
Most of the space in the exhibit
is taken by models and drawings
done by Behren's students. The
schemes cover a wide range o
problems, from ralroad to film
"They impress one as bold but
reasoned solutions in modern ar-
chitectural language," Professor
Bennett continued, adding that the
exhibition is a chance to see thel
berman modernist at work, unre-
strained by the structural and ar-
tistic inhibitions that bother Amer-
icans, and hampered only by the
limits of free imagination."

Red Activity in Mexico
(By Associcad Press)
WASHINGTON, Oct. 18. - The
possibility that a group of the
H o u s e communist investigating
committee may visit Mexico to in-
quire into alleged soviet propa-
ganda directed at the United
States by agents of that country
was discussed yesterday by Repre-

Paper Accuses Kaiser
of Assisting Fascists
(By A ssoa cd Press)
BERLIN, Oct. 18.-Considerable
interest was aroused here today a
story carried in the Achtuhr A-
bendblatt alleging that the form.-
er kaiser was giving financial sup-
port to the Fascist party, which
recently increased its representa-
tion in the reichstag from 12 to
The paper, which gave no au-
thority for its story, said the
money had never been sent di-
rectly to the party but had gone
through the medium of various
monarchistic organizations which
developed unusual activity prior to
the elections and through Prince
August Wilhelm, chief politician of
the younger Hohenzollerns. The
Jewish Telegraph agency also said
the former kaiser was the financial
angel of the Fascists.

WASHINGTON, Oct. 18-Amos W.
Woodcock, director of prohibition,
said today upon his return from a

of Chicago, was stolen Friday,
which fact, police said, was not
nearly so important as what fol-
Anderson was riding on a street
car a few hours afterward when
he saw an automobile, which he
said was his, going along the
street. He jumped from the street
car, requisitioned a cab, overtook
the driver of the car and then'
brought him down with a hard
tackle when he took to his heels.
