THE MICHIGAN DAILY w

Works Of Lucille Doutrias Are
Shown In Architectural College

Extradition Ordered

CLASSIFIED DIRECTORY

By FRED H. ALDRICH
(Instructor In Painting)
A collection of pastels and etchings
which should create wide interest is
being shown on the first floor of the
building of the College of Architec-
ture.
It consists of a large number of il-
lustrations of a little known and ro-
mantic Asiatic culture - in the main,
the ruins at Angkor, capitol of the
Klmers who entered Cambodia from
India during the dawn of the Chris-
tian Era. In the sixth century they
were a powerful people but the splen-
dor of their civilization was eventu-
ally destroyed by the Siamese and is
now but fragmentarily revealed in
architectural ruins.
Has Extensive Background
Lucille Douglas, the artist, has a
background of world-war service,
newspaper work in China, several
years residence in Indo-China, Java,
and Bali, illustrations for the French
Colonial Government, and associa-
tions with French archeologists dur-
ing their restorations at Angkor.
This full knowledge of the orient
of the present and the past is re-
vealed in the work on exhibition.
We are not surprised to find her a
public speaker, re-creating for the
present the history, art, legend and
color of a fragment of the past.
While the recording of this little
known culture gives the collection a
wide interest, the painters will want
to see especially her pastels which
are more than a vigorous declaration

of the vivid colors of the orient.
Working in the tradition of the im-
pressionists, the artist has given us
an exhibition of skill that reveals a
competent craftsman working in a
medium not frequently enough seen
by the Ann Arbor public.
Color Stands Out
"Here is color!" will be the exam-
iner's first impression, and tge mem-
ory of color will linger as a delight-
ful recollection.
"The Bride's Chair," observed twice
in crowded streets, has given the ar-
tist two opportunities to play with
the painter's most splendid scale of
color - vermilion, yellow, blue, green,
and magenta - easily productive of
chaos in the hands of the unin-
formed but the delight of all when
skillfully arranged. "Red Bridge -
Canton" again toys with this scale
accenting the variations from ver-
milion to yellow, contrasted with
light yellows to magenta pinks. One
must cross our southern borders to
find this exciting combination more
pleasingly understood.
Fall Gray Is Used
"Blue Rialto - Bankok" plays with
that other section of the spectrum.
so greatly enjoyed by colorists, while
in "Singapore - Noon," using a full
range of colors, the painter almost
achieves a gray - the vibrant gray
which we see across the Varsity bowl
on sunny fall afternoons when the
throng has assembled to watch the
games.
Not that the gray reaches of the
palette are shunned. In "Crowded
Hour" and "Bridge-Soo Chow" these
hues are woven into rich satisfying
patterns of vibrant, pulsating colors.
This delightful appreciation is
matched by the simple directness of
the use of the crayons. The surface
is filled with broad lines of color -
that is all.
Line Called 'Adequate'
There is a question whether in a
line treatment the line would not
have been more satisfying had it
been more searching -yet it is ade-
quate. The critic probably errs when,
in a color study, he is not satisfied
with a color arrangement. Its hold-
ing merit is that it is a declaration
of interest by an alert, venturing and
competent observer.
To those interested in the crafts-
manship of the arts it shows what
is possible with a medium long fa-
vored by colorists and to one knowing
of the rough handling that a travel-
ing exhibition is subjected to, these
large sheets protected only by card-
board mats will go far in demon-
strating that pastel drawings are
comparatively permanent declara-
tions of appreciation.
Addition For
Engne School
Neart Fiished
Work on the engineering court was
near completion today. CWA labor-
ers, in conjunction with the build-
ings and grounds committee, are en-
gaged in the task of pouring concrete
for the inclosure, which is located in
the rear of the East Engineering
building and faces Church Street.
Edward C. Pardon, superintendent
of buildings and grounds, said that
the project would definitely be fin-
ished by the end of the week.
While the present task is difficult,
workers faced a more trying prob-
lem in the early weeks of the enter-
prise, in early February. At that
time a layer of frost three feet deep
covered the broken ground and it was
necessary to summon profession~al
dynamiters to loosen the crusted
earth. After this had been done,
the wood forms were set in prepara-
tion for the present pouring of the
concrete.

SPEECHES BY 'PHONE

Professor Montgomery, director of
extension, stated that its chief use is
for emergencies and small meetings
where it is not particularly important
;that the speaker be present and
where by the use of the device ex-
pense is saved.

Postpone Date
For Pouring Of
giant Mirror
Michigan's Telescope To
Obtain Second Largest
Mirror In The World
Due to the fact that the glass on
hand was not up to standard, the
Corning Glass Works in Corning, N.
Y., have had to postpone the pour-
ing of Michigan's new 84-inch tele-
scope mirror. The mirror was not
cast S u n d a y, as was originally
planned, but Dr. Heber D. Curtis,
head of the astronomy department,
said that it would probably be done
within a week.1
At the time of pouring the mirror
will take its place as second largest
in the world, and will hold that po-
sition until a 200-inch mirror is cast
for the California Institute of Tech-
nology in the race to equal the ef-
ficiency of the present 100-inch rec-
ord-holding mirror in use at the
Mount Wilson Observatory in Cali-
fornia.
The competition started when the
Corning Glass Works announced that
it would experiment with large-size
mirrors made with a new heat-re-
sisting glass. Three large mirrors
have so far been cast: a 72-inch disk
for the Dominion Astro-Physical
Laboratory, a 7-inch mirror for the
University of Toronto, and an 80-
inch mirror for the Yerkes Obser-
vatory. When it was announced that
it was more economical to pour as
many of the mirrors as were desired
at one time, an anonymous donor
offered to pay for an 84-inch reflector
for the University observatory.
Aside from its dimensions, the tel-
escope will be remarkable in that it
will embody many of the best in-
ventions of the last two or three
years.
First among these will be the use
of aluminum rather than silver for
coating the huge mirror, a process
only recently perfected by Dr. Strong
of Mount Wilson, who succeeded in
coating a 36-inch mirror with it. The
University plans to coat its own 37-
inch mirror in the largest telescope
now at the Observatory with alumi-
num next summer. Many other parts
of the telescope will be made of
aluminum instead of the metals or-
dinarily used.
WALTER GIVES RADIO TALK
Types of the essay, with various
classical examples were discussed by
Prof. Erich Walter of the English de-
partment on the school program
broadcast from the University studios
in Morris Hall ysterday.

New Book List To Be Published
By Bureau Of Alumni Relations

A new book list will be published
by the University within the next
two months, containing a complete
list of books that will be helpful for
a reader wishing to gain a knowledge
of any subject, according to Wilfred
B. Shaw, director of alumni rela-
tions.
The list is published by the Bu-
reau of Alumni Relations in co-op-
eration with the Library Extension
Service. The first copy, printed in
1931, was a 160-page book containing
lists of the best publications on a
majority of subjects. Lists were sent
to alumni and requests for other
book lists have been coming into the
University in such great nunber that
it has been decided to publish a sup-
plement to the list of three years ago.
The book lists contain the name
of the book, the author, publisher,
price, and a brief note on the con-
tents. All publications are arranged
under the subjects they deal with.
Because of the many requests the
new book will contain a hobby book
list.
Faculty members, who-are leaders
ii). the different fields of study, com-
pile the lists and because of the
helpfulness and the great variety of
subjects treated the book has been
used by libraries and individuals
throughout the United States and
foreign countries.
The book list will be printed by the
University Press some time in May.
Over 3,000 have been sent out in the
last three years but a much larger
