f Rivera, Mural
To Be Exhibited
What are claimed to be the only
)hotographs of the Rivera mural in
3xistence, located in the Rockefeller
Center-RCA building, will be exhib-'
ited at the lecture to be given at 3
p. m. tomorrow in Natural Science
Auditorium by Stephen Dimitroff
and Lucienne Bloch, two of Rivera's
aides on the project. This is the
mural which aroused so much dis-
cussion and objection when its com-
pletion was forbidden by the Rocke-
feller interests.
Quoting from the "Workers Age:"
"This unusual photograph of the
central panel of the RCA mural and
the detail photos were taken sur-
reptitiously by one of Rivera's aides,
Miss Lucienne Bloch, after the
Rockefellers had forbidden the com-
pletion of the mural or even its re-
production or photographing." All
these photos will be shown through
the medium of lantern slides.
Titled "The Truth in the Radio
City Controversy," the lecture will
comprise the artistic and social views
of Miss Bloch and Mr. Dimitroff con-
cerning the abandonment of work on
the mural which presented a decided-
ly liberal point of view.

The aggregate needs of schools in-

by the company, amount to about
$135,000,000. "If this is truly a rep-

Library structures, needed only
slightly less, were second in impor-

A number of institutions reported
that work already planned and ap-
proved or even actually under con-
struction had been held up on ac-

were "difficulty of raising funds,
shutting off of subscriptions, low
cash value of securities, and other
reactions from the general deflation
which has created serious hardships."

Buyers Desire
In Automobiles
The American people want depen-
dability in their motor cars above
everything else, a survey conducted
by a large motor car corporation dis-
closes. The million and a half per-
sons who were asked what they
wished more than anything else
listed in order operating economy,
safety, appearance, comfort, ease of
control, smoothness, low list price,
pick-up, and speed.
Other features which were asked
for by many of those who wrote to
the corporation outlining their ideal
car in full were mellow-sounding
horns, arm rest for the driver, a re-
duction of the amount of shiny
chromium visible from the driver's
seat, a reduction in the amount of
bouncing of the rear seat.
Indefinable qualities were re-
quested by many of those who an-
swered the questionnaire, one wo-
man writing as follows.:
"The modern car is really a kind
of servant and perhaps there is no
better way to sum up what I expect
from my car than to consider what
one expects from a servant. We ex-
pect a servant to be dependable, ef-
ficient, amiable, ready to go at our
bidding - ready to adapt themselves
to our wishes.
