German mythological characterst
have been greatly corrupted by the
modern ignorance of the old legen-
dary figures of the Nordic pantheon,
according to Prof. Norman L. Willey
of the German department, who
spoke yesterday over the 'University
Broadcasting Service.
"We frequently see pictures of Thor
riding through the clouds, with a
modern sledge hamner in his naked
hand, in an elegant Roman chariot
of the kind Ben Hur might havey
used," said Professor Willey. '"These
tWo things are glaring anachronisms.
The artist might quite as accurately
have seated Thor at the wheel of a
M-model Ford as to depict him
standing in a Roman chariot."'
Professor Willey told holyWodan,
contrary to most of the pictures
which represent him as a handsome
Swed eattired in a glittering boiler-
iron hat, such as was u ed in the
Thirty Years' War, and provided with
two perfectly good eyes, n reality!
was always depicted as old and-
white-haired, wearing .a .broada
brimmed hat pulled -far down on his
forehead to conceal the fact that he
had only one eye.
"Thor lives with us today,"' said
Professor Willey." Every year we see
sce him on our streets with his lux-
uriant whiskers and his -red gar-
ments, but his goats have become,
reindeer and his hammer has turnedI
into a Salvation Army kettle to re-
ceive the nickels of the passers-by.'
The reason 'that we do not know-
ingly eat horse meat today, said Pro-
fessor Willey. is that hor ses were
eaten at the feasts of the old gods,
and missionaries of the White God
presciibed this kind of meat because
it was a delicacy especially associated
with heathenism,
Professor Willey told of the old
Germanic conception of heaven, or,
as they called it, Walhalla. "It is
characteristic -of the religions of hot
countries that their heaveis are cool,
while the religions of cold countries
always have a heaven..that is well
heated. Thus Walhalla, as our Nor-

dic ancestors . conceived it, was a
brightly lighted banquet hall with a
cheerful open fire in the center.
There was a never-ending supply of
boiled pork, and mead, a drink of
considerably higher alcoholic content;
than near beer, flowed constantly
into an open tank.
"There was no harp - playing
among these stern warrior souls, for
only those who died fighting could
come to Walhalla. Instead of form-
ing quartettes and glee clubs each
morning theyent out to he plain
and fought all day long 'and killed'
each other off. But, with each sun-j
set, the dead arose again:to fight on
the following day.
When what corresponds to the Last
Judgment cornes to the German gods,
they wilt 'gather and fight against the
forces of darkness, said Professor
Willey. After three years of lawless-
ness; three years of darkness and un-
broken winter, and other cosmis ca-
lamities, the forces of evil Will'gather
to attack the gods, he said. '
"The gods will then arm them-
selves and ride to the Thing. or Con-
gress, Jura Fas we do today when dis-
aster threatens the cormow ealth,
but unlike us' they hill-not content
themselves with appointing an alibi
committee and discussing, two per
cent beer. They wvill form their bat-
tle-line ..with the help of' all the
valiant souls'who have died in battle,
and they will pioceed against the
threatening invaders."

accept his program, presented to
President Ruthven Wednesday. The
program, it is understood, demanded
use of football returns and state ap-
propriations for student relief and
reduction of all faculty salaries to a
$5,000 maximum. Gropper also
charged the administration with
threatening to expel a member of his
league, stpposedly Cheyfitz, before
Wednesday's "protest meeting."
Cheyfitz, who took the stump to
outline the nlatform of the National
Student League, warned his hearers
that the world is on the verge of an-
other war. Interpolating his discussion
with frequent derogatory allusions 'to
The Daily, which he referred to as
"Gilbreth and his gang," he present-
ed the following program, which, he
said, 'could be carried by no other
agency than the league:
(1) Lower tuition fees and a £Cre
college in every city.
(2) Academic freedom for instruc-
tors and students.
3) Abolition of all forms of com-
pulsory religious services.
(4) Abolition of the 1-. 0. T. C.
(5) Full social and political rights
for negroes and other minorities.
Gropper predicted in a closing
speeeh that protest meetings on cam-
pus would be the "order of the day"
until the demands of the league are
met.

NEW YORK, Jan. 1l--()-A
woman on the podium was the nov-
elty in symphonic conducting which
won today the admiration and a-
proval of New York critics.
There were some misgivings mani-

Russia, Nation
Of Hopes, Says
John Sundwall
Studies Health, Welfare
Activities, Educaion On
Russian Trip
Russia is pictured as a nation of
hope in a talk given last night by
Dr. John Sundwall, director of the
Division of Hygiene and Public
Health, before a group of women' stu-
dents in the School of Education. Dr.
Sundwall described his observations
and experiences while on a recent
trip to Russia, with particular refer-
ence to physical welfare activities,
health, and education.
"One cannot help having a good
deal of sympathy for Russia," Dr.
Sundwall said, "if one can see and
understand the' ideal toward which
the Russians are'striving and cai
appreciate the disappointments to
which a young nation is subject."
"I have nothing startling or sen-
sational to relate," the speaker de-
clared. "During six weeks of travel
L studied social welfare in the schools
and industries of Leningrad, Moscow,
Dnieproistroy, Sebastopol, Ya1 t a,
Odessa, and Kiev.".
-The education and health work in
particular measure up to 'similar in-
terests in other countries, Dr. Sund-
wall 'asserted, commenting that the
Russian Soviet especially has made
"remarkable progress" toward the de-
crease of illiteracy. The percentage
of the populace which can read and
write 'is now from 60 to 70, whereas
before the Soviet regime 60 per' cent
could do neither, he said.
This decrease in the illiteracy rate
is being accomplished through the
public schools and adult education,
Dr. Sundwall said. Large industrial
centers have well-established school
systems which are now extending to
the peasant classes.

Metropolitan Opera House Tuesday
night, butt these- misgivings swiftly
dissolved as it became apparent that
the young woman was authoritative
both in ~her understanding. of the
score and-her ability to get it played.
Miss Brico, who is only the third
woman to direct a symphony orches-
tra before a New York audience in
recent years .(Mrs. Ethel Leginska
and Miss' Emma' Steiner were the
tothers), also conducted Tchaikov-
sky's Fourth Symphony, using a
score bearing the composer's own
markings. She directed, too, the
Richard Strauss "Burleske," with 17-
year-old Poldi Mildner as piano
soloist.
In "Burleske" her success with the
orchestra was not so happy, a fault
easily ascribable to the trickiness of
the Strauss score and the fact that
the huge orchestra, composed of un-
employed musicians, has a constantly
changing personnel which militates
against the smoothness that is at-
tainable only in a pernanent organi-
zation.
Miss Mildrer, a slender and at-
tractive Vienna miss, was required to
play two encores. tier technical skill
and seeming sang froid in the play-
ing of the difficult Strauss opus win-
ning long applause.
Serge Prokofieff, Russian com-
poser, directed the orchestra in the
playing- of his own "Suite Du Bal-
let Chout," a brilliant group of num-
bers to the playing of which the
orchestra responded enthusiastically.

Dorr Explains
Election System
Faults ini the present systemi of
electing our President were explained
yesterday by Harold m. Dorr, in-
structor in' the political science de-
partment, in a radio speech over
the facilities of the University 'Broad-
casting Service.
"The system is criticized," said Mr".
Dorr, "because it favors the small
states, since every state, regardless
of its population, is entitled to be
represented in Congres by two sen-
ators and one representative,m and
consequently has three Presidential
votes." Mr. Dorr showed how Nevada,
with the population of about 90,000
people, casts three' electoral votes,
while New York, with a population of
over 10,000,000 casts only 47 electoral
votes.
"This gives to Nevad" one presi-
dential vote to every 30,000 of its
population,uwhile New York is lim-
ited to one vote for approximately
every 213,000 pctsn s," hie said:
"A second criticism" is raised
against the systei because it is- un-
democratic," declared Mr. Doar. "To-.
day there is a general feeling that
the people are qualified to choose
their President directly and should
be allowed to do so."
