The basic principle of filming books
is much the same as that used in

pointed out. It merely entails run-

A Good Definition
When an authority on the subject
of memory forgets, well, that's news.
It all began way back in the early
days of the Republic, when a group of
homesick pilgrims invented a day of
thanksgiving, on which they could
feast on turkey and cranberry sauce,
and be mutually sympathetic over
their respective stomach-aches.
On Nov. 28 in the year 1935, a cer-
tain elementary psychology class in
the University of Michigan was
scheduled to study the field of mem-
ory, but it developed that that day
was Thanksgiving. Dr. George Mey-
ers, instructor of the class and au-
thority on memory, decided to have a
makeup section in the subject on the
afternoon of the following Saturday,
in order to maintain the regular
schedule. Per agreement, the stu-
dents assembled in the classroom on
Saturday afternoon and waited for
the instructor to appear. He never
showed up. He had failed to remem-
ber an appointment for a lecture on
Is it any wonder then, that on the
following Tuesday, when the class
belatedly buckled down to the study,
of memory, Dr. Meyers seemed a bit
reluctant to give any positive prin-
ciples or laws as to the most efficient
way to remember. All he had to say
about the whole affair was, "Oh, the
irony of it all."

was the topic of a lecture given yes-
terday by Professor Louis I. Bredvold
of the English department over the
University Broadcasting Service.
Explaining first that in order to
understand history we must not only
know what man was but what he
wanted and tried to be, Professor
Bredvold declared the eighteenth cen-
tury can be understood best by know-
ing what its ideals were.
"The ideals of that period were
in many respects very different from
those of our own." He said that
these were composed of desires for
beauty, perfection, and elegance. The
custom of men wearing wigs, silver
buckles on the shoes, a suit of peach-
colored velvet, and lace display well
the elaborateness of the age, he con-
tinued. The manners. too, were quite
gracious and elaborate, as seen in the
novels of Jane Austen, Professor
The furniture and the architecture,
the colonial architecture widely im-
itated in our modern buildings, which
is concerned "with the perfection and
symmetry of design, in the most ex-
quisite and pleasing proportions, in
beauty of geometrical purity," as il-
lustrations of the taste of the eigh-
teenth century, the speaker =com-
Professor Bredvold illustrated these
ideals from the literature of the pe-
riod, in which be believes is "the
same desire for beauty, for perfection,
and for elegance."

agencies is duplicated because they
believe the system of distributing the
case loads is haphazardly arranged,"
Miss Valentine said, "but this year we
have established a clearing bureau at
the Salvation Army quarters in order
to avoid this overlapping of work."
Before taking over any case, the wel-
fare agencies in the city call the bu-
reau, which has records of the case
loads of each organization to find out
if the particular family is being cared
for by some other agency.
Financial guidance is one of the
services rendered by the Bureau, Miss
Valentine said. In many cases where
the father gets a job after having
been unemployed for a long time, the
family sometimes will spend his sal-
ary on needless luxuries, without real-
izing that they must have money for

the necessities of life. "We try to
help them by drawing up budgets, or
by giving them advice as to how they
can best manage on what they have,"
she stated, "although we do not force
them to follow our advice."
However, although service is the
primary aim of the Bureau, it is
coupled with financial aid. The Bu-
reau receives $9,000 a year from the
Community Fund with which its work
can be carried on.
