Conducts Work In Study
Of Celadon Specimens
From Far East
Contrary to general belief, the
study of art and natural science have
much in common, according to Ben-
jamin March, sinologist. Mr. March,
who divides his time between the po-
sitions of curator of the Division of
the Orient in the University Museum
of Anthropology and curatory of as-
iatic art at the Detroit Institute of
Art, has discovered this from his own
rather unusual combination of work.
"Once the particular province of
the vague esthete, art history is tak-
ing a definite scientific turn," Mr.
March said in an interview. "Re-I
search is carried out in a scientific
spirit, often requiring historical and
even chemical analysis."
Mr. March has been an honorary
member of the museums staff for
four years. This, however, is his
first year of active work. At present
he is devoting his time here to the
development of objective methods for
classifying Chinese art, especially of
porcelains brought back by Dr. Carl
E. Guthe, also of the museums, from
the Philippines in 1922. He is mak-
ing physical tests of hardness and
also attempting to develop criteria of
glaze texture by photographic means.
Mr. March's more particular study
is devoted to specimens of the cela-
don, a gray-green porcelain popular
in China from the eighth century to
the present day, and probably reach-
ing its"heighth in the twelfth and
thirteenth centuries. Remains of ce-
ladon found in the near East, Tur-
key, Persia, and Egypt, as well as in
the Philippines, serve to show how
far-flung was Chinese commerce,
since ethnologists now agree that all

Four years residence in China,

Depend On 'Pocket-ook
Interest' Of Citizens To

CLEVELAND, Oct. 8-- Men and
women want jobs. They want, to
retain their homes. They want low-
ered taxes. They want money to
This "pocket-book i n t e r e s t" of
American citizens is dealing the final
blow to prohibition,
The Crusaders' national comman-
der-in-chief, Fred G. Clark, in pre-
paring for the, opening of the Vic-
tory Fund Campaign for $500,000
October 10, revealed the results of a
survey of the more than 90 Crusad-
er battalions in the country, the most
important fact of which is the link-
ing of repeal with the return of some,
degree of prosperity in the minds of
increasing numbers of voters.
"Those who study the history of
prohibition since 1920 and the sta-
tistics on drinking and the money
spent for drink annually cannot help
but come to the same conclusion:
that (1) the greatest single indus-
try in the United States produces
no federal income by way of taxes;
(2) this means a heavy added bur-
den on tax payers; (3) while millions
are unemployed and many losing
their homes, bootleggers continue to
line their pockets with gold; and (4)
repeal and the subsequent estab-
lishment in the various states of
liquor control that will protect those
who wish to remain dry is the mostJ
important immediate step available
in the return of prosperity," said
"The legitimate taxin gof spirits
and beer, based on the 1917 con-
sumption which was relatively small
because of the war, and of wine, on'
the estimated minimum consuump-
tion of 1931, would produce more
than $1,500,000,000 in tax revenue.
'This would be sufficient to pay the
interest on the bonded indebtedness
of the federal, state, county and
municipal governments and leave a

questionably the most important fac-

The Crusaders are sure of gaining

Economists Can't Stop
EVANSTON, Ill., Oct. 8.-Eco-
nomic theorizing on the North-
western campus suffered a hu-
miliating set-back today at the
hands of a determined lawn
mower operator. Approaching the
rostrum to deliver his lecture to
an eagerly waiting group of eco-
nomic students, an eminent pro-
fessor of the University became
aware of the steady putt-putt of
a law mower, the staccato efforts
of which effectually drowned out
his comparatively puny vocal
A husky individual was depu-
tized to silence the offender. The
noise ceased a moment and then
cheerfully continued. Amid the
cheers of the class another com-
mittee of reconciliation was leav-
ing to enter into negotiations
when the first crusader returned.
In answer to the baffled profes-
sors appealing look he announced,
"he says you economists have
stopped enough machines, but
you can't stop his.
