NSL Is Out Of

AllExisting Youth Drives
Against War And Fascism
The National Student League,
which last year found itself holding
the campus spotlight on more than

one occasion, exists no more, either
nationally or locally.
Its place in the anti-war and anti-
fascist movement among the young
people of America is to be taken
by the American Student Union, a
coalition organization of members of
the N.S.L., the Student League for
Industrial Democracy, and unaffiliat-
ed sympathizers, formed at a conven-
bon held Dec. 26, 27, and 28 in Co-
According to Fred Brandeis, Grad.,
former executive secretary of the local
N.S.L. chapter who attended the con-
solidation convention, the American
Student Union's program is chiefly
concerned with the following:
"1. United Action against war and
the menace of fascism."
"2. Student cooperation with
workers in resisting the control of
the economic system by a financial
"3. Action against the Reserve
Officers Training Corps."
"4. A definite stand against race
"5. The support of, complete aca-
demic freedom for teacher and stu-
"Although the National 'Student
League did not have an avowed 'po-
litical' program," Brandeis pointed
out yesterday, "nevertheless it did
have a political texture.
"The American Student Union -
nationally and on this campus - will
seek to avoid any political committ-
"The A.S.U. will be open for mem-
bership to anyone who wishes to join

subscribe to one or more of the
A. S. U.'s program points. It is not
at all necessary that he espouse them
Brandeis said that in his belief
the American Student Union is "the
type of student organization that
should have been tried long ago." He
added that the A.S.U. was expected
to concentrate on "the large objec-
tives," which he said were opposition
to war and to fascism.
Plans for the formation of an
A.S.U. chapter on the campus are
still sketchy, Brandeis stated. It is
expected, however, that the local unit
will be functioning by the beginning
of the second semester.
Michigan students who attended1
the amalgamation meeting stated
that approximately 450 delegates were
present, representing about equally
the N.S.L. the S.L.I.D., and unaffil-
iated persons. The Michigan dele-
gates said the meeting was charac-
terized by "great enthusiasm," add-
ing that the agenda seemed well
prepared and that discussion on most
of the points was "reasonably com-

FILM FOLLIES z
Excavations At Dura-Europa On
Euphrates Described By Hopkins
Valuable Parchment And
Papyrus Scrolls Found
In Ancient Ruins
By JEWEL W. WUERFEL
Working with a staff of from six
to eight archeologists and more than
300 Arabs, Prof. Clark Hopkins of
the Latin and Greek department
spent five years digging at the site
Dura-Europa, situated in Syria on
the Euphrates River, was built by
the Macedonians in 300 B.C., shortly
after the death of Alexander the
Great. Two hundred years later, the
site was captured by the Parthians,
and then in 164 A.D. the Romans
took over the city. It was finally
destroyed in 256 A.D. by the Persians.
Since the coming of the Persians,
the city has never been rebuilt, and,
according to Professor Hopkins, this
fact has been an aid to the arche-
ologists, for they do not have to
contend with the separation of mod-
ern additions from the ancient ruins.
Ruins of the walls of this city of
more than 10,000 inhabitants have
always been visible from the desert
and the French, who have a man-
date over Syria, began the excava-
tion of the site. Yale University be-
ca::me interested in the digging when
a large series of paintings and a
group of parchments and papyri
were discovered. According to Pro-
fessor Hopkins, this is the only site in
Syria where parchment and papyrus
scrolls have been found. Now Yale
University is working in cooperation
with the French Academy of Inscrip-
tions and Letters.
"One of the most interesting ele-
ments is the conflict between the
East and West which is so well re-
flected in the paintings," Professor
Hopkins stated. In continuing, he
explained that there were three parts
to the art, Hellenistic, through the
Macedonians, Eastern, through the
influences of the native people, and
Excavations are begun in the fall
at the end of October and continue
until the first of April. "The rainy
season of the country is an asset to
the digging" according to Professor
Hopkins, "for it enables us to trace
the lines of walls. The walls, made
of dried brick, absorb less water
during the rain than does the loose
sand around them. When the sun
begins to dry out the land, the wall
tracks dry first, leaving a light line
around the sand."
The Arabs who assist in the dig-
ging are efficient workers, especially
considering the amount of food they
consume. After discovering that they
were being paid regularly, they were
very willing to help. Among the
300 working, about half are men who
live in the village and the otherbhalf
are nomads, who pitch their black
goats' hair tents around the excava-
tion grounds during the digging sea-
son, and roam the desert during the
About one third of the city has
been excavated already. Professor
Hopkins believes that the territory
covered is the most productive. Al-
though other finds will probably be
examples of the type already found,
Yale University plans on continuing
for at least another year.
Professor Hopkins will discuss the
finds of the site in a lecture at 4:15
p.m tomorrow in Room D of Alumni
Memorial Hall, given in the Islamic
Research Seminary series.
