Michigan Well Protected
"Michigan is fortunate in respect
to high waters," he said, "in that its
river basins are not large enough to
build up flood waters to any con-
siderable extent. Also numerous river
sources are in sandy soil that absorb
an unbelievable amount of water."
Forestry can do much in preventing
spring floods, he indicated. Among
the benefits of a heavily forested
source is the amelioration of soil ero-
sion harm. Where there is a heavily
wooded river source, the ice and snow
melts more gradually because of thej
shade afforded by the trees, which
also serve to block great slides of ice
and snow that would ordinarily slip

Union Asks Householders
To Register Extra Rooms
Before May Concerts
All householders having extra
rooms which could be rented by guests
attending the May Festival were urged
by Wencel A. Neumann, '36, presidentI
of the Union, to telephone the UnionI
and to register such rooms.
"We are anxious to compile a list
of accommodations for the benefit of
all persons coming to Ann Arbor to at-
tend the Festival," Neumann stated.
"A list of such rooms will help all
out-of-town guests find accommoda-
tions quickly and easily."I
It was pointed out by Union offi-
cials that facilities at both the Union
I and the League would most certainly
be completely filled and that to take'
care of the overflow such added ac-
commodations would be needed. With
a list, guests coming to the Union
would be urged to look at some of
the rooms registered.
Neumann stated that all house-
holders having extra rooms should
call 4151 and ask for the "Manager's 1
Office" and that addresses of per-
sons having such rooms would there
be recorded and a card index com-
piled. It is planned to send Union
council men to the houses which are
registered and to classify and grade
the rooms as to quality, price and
other facilities.
It was especially emphasized that
all persons having such rooms should 1
call the Union at their earliest con-
venience in order to complete the
index of accommodations in plenty of
time before the Festival approaches
and the influx of guests begins:

A summary of modern English lit-
erature was given by Prof. Earl Griggs,
of the English department yesterday,
in reading a speech written by Dr.
Joe Davis, of the same department,
over the radio broadcasting service.
Showing the influence of the pe-
riod of the 1890's upon modern writ-
ers, Professor Griggs pointed out that
the age was "not a period of literary
decadence," but rather a period of
"literary incubation." During this
period, he added, the realistic novel
1was brought into closer contact with
I scientific thought and with economic
I and social actualities, and the prob-
lem play became less sentimental and
less melodramatic, and more real-
istic and intellectual in appeal.
"The most important literary form
in modern English literature has been
the novel," Professor Griggs con-
tinued, emphasizing the two main
trends which characterize its develop-
ment: Interpretation and criticism of
the changing English social order and
the study of psychological problems
and the exploration of the stream of
consciousness. The major sociological
novelists of the period, he asserted,
were Arnold Bennett, whose out- I
standing defect was his failure to be:
really critical of the social order
he attempted to portray, H. G. Wells,
and. John Galsworthy.
The modern English psychological
novel has taken form under three
main stimuli, the speaker explained,
the psychoanalysis of Freud, Adler,
and Jung, with its emphasis on the1
role of the unconscious and the im-
portance of complexes; the investi-
gations of Havelock Ellis into the psy-
chology of sex, published between
1897 and 1910; and the novel of the
American, Henry James, which indi-
cated the technical value of limiting
a novel to the portrayal of reality as
reflected in the mind of a single char-
Turning to the modern English
drama, Professor Griggs, emphasized
the influence of George Bernard
Shaw, attributing to his abundant and
varied works the credit for "routing,
sentimentality from the English
drama by giving realistic treatment to
themes which popular dramatists oft
the nineteenth century had dealt with
in a sentimental fashion." The critic1
also gave Shaw credit for his revolu-
tionary criticism of English social1
institutions, and analyzed his attempt
to use drama as a medium for the for-
mulation of his own complex philos-
ophy of life, creative evolution.
Speaking of modern English poetry,
Professor Griggs explained that there1

judging it by the attitudes the poets
have taken to the rapid development
of modern science and the transfor-
mation it has wrought in the intel-
lectual background, the World War.
and the chaos of the post-war period.
