Capt. Knight,
Mr. Rainshaw
Are Popular
Real, Live Golden Eagle
Thrills Audience When
It Flies Across Stage
A genial, portly Englishman de-
lighted a good-sized audience last
night in Hill Auditorium with his il-
lustrated lecture on "Monarchs of the
Air." For an hour-and-a-haIf Capt.
C. W. R. Knight kept his audience
amused and avidly interested with his
motion pictures and the story that
he told with them.
Before the lecture proper began,
Captain Knight aroused even more
interest among his listeners by telling
them that he once was an instructor
in bayonet practice at Camp Custer,
Battle Creek.
The motion pictures contained
some remarkable closeup shots of
wild birds in their native haunts.
Climbing hundreds of feet above the
roaring seas among the precipitous
cliffs on the coast of Scotland to
photograph several different species
of what we would call gulls did not
daunt the captain. Nor did the 10]
days of painstaking and patience-
taking preparation of the blind in the
tall rushes of an English meadow1
from which he took some extraordi-1
nary pictures of the growth of a fam-
ily of marsh hawks.
The climax of the lecture came,
however, when Captain Knight
brought his trained golden eagle, Mr.
Ramshaw, onto the stage, perched on
his hand. Mr. Ramshaw, seven yearsr
old, weighing 13 pounds, has traveledc
almost around the world with Cap-
tain Knight. They have been together
so long and the bird has such an at-t
traction for the audience, that many
people, Captain Knight good-humor-
edly says, speak of the two as Mr.
Ramshaw and his companion, Cap-
tain knight.
Backstage after the lecture, Cap-
tain Knight Was very pleasant, an-
swering questions of all who went
back to get a close-up view of the
bird that flew across the stage sev-
eral times to seize pieces of raw meat
out of the captain's gloved hand and
stood at attention while the audience
applauded his performance.
First Number
Is Issued Of
Ars Islamia
Robbins States Fine Arts
Publication Cannot Be
Equalled Elsewhere
Ars Islamica, a new semi-annual
publication devoted to the promotion
of interest in the study of Islamic
art, was issued for the first time this
week, it was learned yesterday. The
book is published by the Research
Seminary in Islamic Art - Division
of Fine Arts - and the Detroit In-
stitute of Arts.
Dr. Frank E. Robbins, assistant to
President Ruthven, stated that the
book is unique in that there is noth-f
ing like it published either in Eu-i
rope or America. It is expected that
scholars in the field will find in these
issues an opportunity to publish their
research in a ,journal devoted es-
peialy to their interests.
A number of well-known men in?
the field of Islamic art are included
on the consultative committee of the
publication. Among these are Presi-
dent Alexander G. Ruthven; Dr.

John G. Winter, director of the Di-
vision of Fine Arts; Dr. Josef Strzy-

plates of masaiques, chapels, frag-
ments of stucco work, door jambs,

High School Students Construct
Scenery For Their Own Plays

Another advance which modern
methods of education have made over
those of the days of "the three R's"
is evidenced in the Stagecraft Club
of the University High School. Mem-
bers of this group come mostly from
the two upper classes of the high
school, but the ninth grade is rep-

Our Stocks Frozen,
NEW YORK, Feb. 20. - (A) - The
New York stock exchange delayed the
opening of trading today until 11
a. m. because of the heavy snow-
storms throughout the New York
The New York curb and cotton ex-
changes posted similar notices of an
hour's delay in the opening of trad-
ing, as did the securities section of
the New York produce exchange. The
New York commodity exchange post-
poned its opening until 10:30 a. m.
The city was held fast in a sheath-
ing of ice and snow that paralyzed
the complicated transportation sys-
tem serving 10,000,000 persons in the
metropolitan area.
An army of 35,000 men, equipped
with shovels and picks, chipped and
scraped to open streets.
It was said to be the first time in
twenty years or more that weather
conditions necessitated d e 1 a y i n g
openings of the markets.
Other elements have been respon-7
sible for inaugurating trading later
than the regular 10 a. m.

the stage settings for the various
plays produced by groups within the
school. The members of the club
take the material at hand and re-
build it into scenes called for in the
play. They do both the carpentry
work and the painting. The work
is done under the direction of Ed-
ward Freed of the dramatics depart-
ment of the high school.
The project which the club is un-
dertaking at present is the making
of the scenery for the annual Senior
Play, to be held Feb. 23 and 24. The
scenery shop in the basement of the
school is littered with half-finished
sets; cans of blue and silver paint
obstruct passage and banks of flood
lights hang from the walls in the
process of repair or construction.
Work in the auditorium of the high
school is rapidly nearing completion.
Through financial aid received from
the CWA, the stage has been made
larger and more practical for the
type of production which the stu-
dents put on. New disappearing foot-
lights have been installed and all the
lighting controls have been conven-
iently placed in one box in a fly-
gallery at the side of the stage. The
stage ceiling has been raised as much
as possible to permit easier manipu-
lation of scenery. The curtains for
the windows and the stage will prob-
ably be contributed by the senior
class from the proceeds of their play.
BERLIN, Feb. 20 - (P)-The Ger-

Nazi Youth Movement.
He said its existence was "no long-
er warranted."

Roosevelt Told
Of Betterment
Of Bank Status
Industry Is Also Said To
Be In Improved Condi-
tion By Leaders
Reports of improved conditions in
banking and industry were given to
President Roosevelt today by leaders
in these fields. They came at the
same time that the chief executive'
considered efforts to move the heavy
capital goods business into higher
speed to take up slack from the Gov-
ernment's emergency program.
Henry I. Harriman, president of
the Chamber of Commerce of the
United States, and Francis M. Law,
president of the American Bankers
Association, in talks with the Presi-
dent spoke optimistically of condi-
tions and discussed plans for the

the problem was to stimulate the
capital goods industry. Law asserted
that "the banking structure is very
sound" and the banks are "getting
back to a more normal lending pol-
However, he agreed that Federal

Mr. Roosevelt has been busy with
his financial lieutenants planning
something along this line, and a pro-
gram for establishing intermediateI
banks to assist the Federal Reserve
System is contemplated.
We have depended too long on the
hope that private ownership and con-
trol would operate somehow for the
benefit of -society as a whole. Prof.

Every Lucky Strike is made from
the finest tobacco and only the
center leaves. Not the top leaves-
because those are under-developed
-not ripe. They would give a harsh
smoke. Not the bottom leaves-be-
cause those are inferior in quality.
They grow close to the ground,
and are tough, coarse and always
sandy. The center leaves are the
mildest leaves, for which farmers
are paid higher prices. Only these
center leaves are used in making
Luckies the fully packed cigarette
-so round, so firm-free from
loose ends. That's why Luckies
draw easily, burn evenly. And
remember- "It's toasted"-for
throat protection-for finer taste.
