Prof. Hebrard
ectures For
French Group
"The monestery, the feudal fort-
ress, and the fortification of an en-
tire city" were the most important
forms of architecture during the Mid-
dles Ages, according to Prof. Jean
Hebrard's lecture to the Cercle Fran-
cais group from 4:15 to 5:15 p.m. yes-
terday.
Professor Hebrard began by tracing
the history of architecture from
primitive days through the Middle
Ages. Building, in its first form
arose from a dire necessity on the
part of the people for shelter. Archi-
tecture became more highly de-
veloped, however, when it began man-
ifesting itself through religion.
The architecture inspired by Chris-
tianity in Frace reaches its height in
the 13th century. At this century,
Medevial architecture gained a sud-
den impetus at the heart of the king-
dom, in the cities of Ile de France,
and quickly absorbed the Roman-
esque which was the prevailing type
of architecture in the 11th and 12th
century by the introduction of tech-
nical and decorative innovations of
considerable importance.I
From the technical point of view,
the two new features which should
be noted are the introduction of the
pointed arch and the use of the fly-
ing buttresses. The resulting effect
from these innovations was that the
exterior of the church acquired a
majestic beauty; and in the interior
the columns, heightened by the ribs
of the vaulting, resembled an im-
mense forest flooded with light.
Professor Hebrard gave this lec-
ture in French, addressing a consid-

erable number of students as well as
professors. He was introduced to
the group by Prof. Rene Talamon of
the French Department. The illus-
trations which he presented along
with the lecture heightened the in-
terest. This is the third lecture
which Professor Hebrard has given
before the Cercle Francais.
A. A. U. W. Junior Group

The Dietetics group of the Junior

ENTERTAINS AT HOME
Miss Alice Lloyd, Dean of women,
entertained the members of Pi Lamb-
da Theta last night at her home on
Washtenaw Avenue. Miss Eunice
Wead gave an interesting talk on
book collecting.

At all times of the year, gloves
are a necessary and important ac-
cessory but at no time are they more
in the limelight than during the late
winter season.
One of the most popular styles is
the pigskin glove. It is attractive
in either a light color or a darker
dyed shade and blends well with any
type of sports coat. They are ex-
ceedingly practical as well in that
they can be washed innumerable
tines without spoiling their texture
or shape. In addition to all this,
they are warm without being bulky.
Another comfortable glove is the
leather, fur cuffed one. They may
be lined either with fur or with
wool. The cuff adds a decorative
note as well as being a safeguard
against the coldest winds. This style
would harmonize nicely with fur-
trimmed galoshes.
Knit loves Add Color
Mittens are always popular both
for their possibilities in color and
for the ease with which ane can
take them off and on in hasty goings
and comings from one class to an-

By BETTY STRICKROOT
A new phase of the hobby, travel-
ling, of Mrs. Barbara H. Bartlett, pro-
fessor of public nursing, was em-
barked upon when she flew during
Christmas Vacation to Mexico. Her
trip took her from Chicago through
Kansas City, San Antonio, Browns-
ville, Tampico and on to Mexico City.
Her immediate reaction to the new
sensation of flying was anything but
favorable. She says that she felt
as if she "had taken a big drink
of something that she might not like."
Leaving Chicago the temperature
was 2 below zero and to add to the
first uneasiness the engine kept miss-
ing. They finally turned around
after circling above Chicago for half
an hour and landed, finding ice on
the carburetor. Having cleared up
the difficulty they took off again,
landing intermittently at Kansas City
and Dallas, Texas. Here again they
encountered difficulty, for they had
missed the San Antonio plane. Forced
to take the train they ran into a
"Texas Norther". .nd its resulting
washouts all along the road.
Flies Across Gulf
At Brownsville, Mrs. Bartlett again
took to the air in the Pan-American'
plane which she describes as a "huge
silver bird." For some time the route
carried them across the beautiful
Gulf of Mexico. According to Mrs.
Bartlett following the curved shore-
line of the tropical forests was one of
the most interesting points of the
journey.
They left the coast at Tampico,.
Mexico, and' flew inland over an
11,000-foot mountain range. "There
was discomfort connected with cross-
ing the range," says Mrs. Bartlett.
"At 11,000 feet you could see nothing
but clouds above and below you with
here and there rocky crags piercing
the heavy mist." Soon they dropped
to a lower elevation and flew over
old silver mines and great expanses
of tropical jungle.
Two years ago Mrs. Bartlett made
the same trip from New York by boat,f
taking the train inland from Vera I
Cruz to Mexico City over a route

that led from sea level to a 10,000-foot
elevation. The contrast of snow
capped mountains and tropical for-
ests is "beautiful from the train
and even more so when viewed from
above," according to the professor.
Visits Indian Village
While in Mexico City Mrs. Bartlett
visited many small Indian villages
nearby. On market day she went
to Taluco, a small village about 50
miles from the city. Each week
the Indians come in from miles
around to sell their produce.. Their
art work she describes as "intricate
and beautiful."
Innumerable handmade pieces of
pottery and complicated designs in
brilliant lacquers are displayed for
sale. The Indians make their own
dyes and use them to color their
hand woven textiles. Woolen bed-
spreads and wonderful embroidered
designs carried out in cotton and
linen, are all brought in each week
for the tourist trade. Mrs. Bartlett
compared the primitive designs to
those of the East Indian and Scan-
dinavian works of art. In her tour of
the market places she also visited
the famous Thieves' Market and that
of the Carmen Cathedral.
Colonies Are Interesting
Mrs. Bartlett describes the Amer-
ican and English colonies in Mexico
as "interesting and entertaining."
She spent a few days in Taxco, the
famous "artists' paradise." The town
she says, clings to the hills at an ele-
vation of 7,500 feet. "I was forced
to sit down often at that elevation,
for the least bit of exertion leaves
one breathless," admitted Mrs. Bart-
lett.
In contrast to the trip down the
return flight was uneventful. Leav-
ing Mexico at 1 p.m. Saturday she
arrived in Chicago at 6 a.m. Sunday.
The constant communication withu
the ground to insure knowledge of
weather conditions, the individual
flash lights in the plane, and the
tiny individual ventilators were points
in the airplane that fascinated Mrs.
Bartlett. She found her first airplane
trip very enjoyable and now has an-
other journey to add to her long list.
