That the motion picture, "The
Human Adventure," portrays "the se-
quence of historical lore as handed
down through the archives of suc-
cessive civilizations" was the opinion
expressed yesterday by Prof. Leroy
Waterman, head of the department
of Oriental languages.
He was describing the epic movie
depicting the story of humanity, to
be presented Oct. 18 and 19 in the
Lydia Mendelssohn Theatre.
Biblical students interested in the
origins of Judaism and Christianity
will welcome this valuable pictorial
representation of the scenes that have
acquired significance because of their
attachment to Biblical incidents,tpre-
dicted Professor Waterman.
"The living contact with Babylon
and the Holy Land that has exerted
such a real influence over our pres-
ent day thinking will be strengthened
for many people by the direct repre-
sentation of these scenes that have
had biblical mention. Babylonia, the
supposed scene of the Garden of
Eden; and the land of the patriarch
Abraham; Megiddo, Palestine, the
location of King Solomon's stables;
Anatolia, the habitat of the Hittites,
will be seen in this epic production of
the Oriental Institute of the Univer-
sity of Chicago, under the direction
of James H. Breasted, historian and
"This is not a mere spectacular
pseudo-historical dramas such as
have come out of Hollywood," empha-
sizes Professor Waterman. "It is not
a commercial enterprise, but a truly
scientific unfolding of the panorama
of mankind, a vivid tale of the his-
tory of man's development."

WASHINGTON, Oct. 13-(A)- A
new kind of detective - the stock
ticker sleuth - entered the law en-
' forceinent picture today.
The securities and exchange com-
mission, official sources said, has set
experts to work watching tickers
for evidence of attempts to manipu-
late the market.
Though not looking for trouble, the
experts are scrutinizing the tape
closely. One expert has said private-
ly that he can spot a pool in 20 min-
utes and tell who is operating it in
20 more. The Sec act forbids pools
- groups of operators acting to af-
fect prices artificially.
When once manipulation is dis-

The use of fluorescence in ultra-

Reviewing Mae West's latest effort,
"Belle of the Nineties" is by far the
most difficult job we have had yet
this season. If you like Mae West,
it's swell, if you don't (and we belong
in this category) it's about the worst
hour and a half of torture that you
could sit through.
Mae (if we may be so personal as
to call her that) is all of her old self
that had half the nation remarking,
"Why don't you come up and see me
sometime." She still struts her stuff
in that familiar swagger that can
only be called "Mae Westican." The
same old voice is there, but there are
a flock of new retorts that had even
this hostile critic more than just
There are some pretty fair songs
including "My Old Flame" and "My;
American Beauty." Duke Ellington
does some swell work with his orches-
tra, whenever they can get Miss West
out of the picture for a second or two.
After all is said and done, there is
really only one thing that can be said
about the picture: It's all Mae West.
If you like her, see her by all means,
but if you don't, stay away from it.
There's nothing else that the picture
has to offer. -C.A.E.
