Michigan to Argue Affirmative
in Second Conference
Meet March 4.
Dorothy Davis, Alice Gilbert
and Eleanore Gilmore
Compose Side.
Northwestern University women
will oppose the University of Mich-
igan in the second conference de-
bate which will be held in Ann Ar-
bor on Mar. 4 at eight o'clock in the
Methodist church.
Question for Debate.
The question to be debated will
be: Resolved, that India be granted
immediate independence f r o m
Great Britain. Michigan will have
the affirmative side of the propo-
sition. The women who will debate
for the university are: Eleanore
Gilmore, '33, Alice Gilbert, '33, and
Dorothy Davis, '33. Alice Schleh,
'32, who was formerly named to the
team has had to give up debating
because of illness.
In the firstconference debate the
University negative team was de-
feated by the University of Indiana,
at Bloomington, Ind. The Michigan
women who debated are: Dorothy
Daniels, '32, Gladys Baker, '33, and
Jean Hagaman, '33.
The Michigan team pointed out
that Great Britain had not been ex-
ploiting India and that India had
not demonstrated the ability to
govern herself. They stressed the
fact that ability to govern must
precede independence.
Indiana presenting the affirma-
tive side of the case indicted the
British administration as one of
exploitation. In continuing the de-
bate they insisted that India could
govern herself because she had cap-
able leaders and was better able to
cope with her own problems than
a foreign government.
Siffert Judges.
Prof. Claude SifTert of the speech
department of Butler University
judged the debate. He explained
that it had been difficult to make a
final decision as it had been a close
debate. The decision was given to
the affirmative, Prof. Siffert stated,
because he felt taht their case had
withstood the attacks of the neg.a-
tive team.
The debate with Indiana closes
the season for the negative team.
During the course of the year it has
debated with Western State Normal
College, Albion College and Detroit
City College.

Professor of Fine Arts Names
Durer The Greatest of
German Artists.
Dr. Hans Tietze, Professor of the
Fine Arts at the University of Vien-
na, in a recent illustrated lecture{
on "Albrecht Durer, the Greatest
aerman Artist," given under the
auspices of the Ann Arbor Art As-
sociation, summed up Durer's leg-1
acy to his nation as the "making
-ecessible to everyone the secrets
,f art."'
Albrecht Durer was born in Nu-
menberg in the year 1471, of Hun-1
garian descent. His father was a3
goldsmith and expected his son to
follow in his wake but Albrecht pre-
ferred art so he was appernticed to
Michael~Wolemut for four years.
At the end of his apprenticeship
Durer went 'on a walking tour
which lasted another four years. Ont
his travels he was intr'oduced to the
art of engraving; in which he later
became very well known, although
Durer was primarily a painter. He
werked, as a craftsman and at the
age of twenty he learned form and
gave a psychological interpretation
to his work. "His early drawings
are intent above all things on thet
sternly accurate delineation of un-
generalized individual forms by
means of strongly accented and
shadings curved, somewhat like theI
shadings of Martin Schongaeur's
"On returning from his tour he
found himself engaged to marry
Agnes Frey, a matrimonial arrange-'
ment of his father's. The marriage,
was not a happy one and a year;
later we find Durer setting out on
another trip, this time to Venice.
It has been said he travelled here to1
escape the plague. Italy gave him
that which a northern atmosphere
could not. It gave him greater
movement, freedom and richness of
life that Germany kept in narrow
restraint. Mere he was a Gothic
artist occupying himself with the
reproducing of old Italian art as
the means of improving his person-
al style. This copying of old mas-
ters gave him the organ with which
to express his own strong feeling.
It was in Italy that he painted
water.colors on the way and did the
first landscape painting of modern
art; in which the "landscape is de-
picted as a harmonious sensation
of the whole and not intended for
