SCA Will Back
Religion Parley
Here Tonight
Discussion In Series On
Christian Philosophies
To Be Held In Lane Hall
A new program of informal discus-
sions in which student Christian phil-
osophies will have an opportunity to
be applied to specific cases will be in-
augurated at 8 p.m. today by the
Student Christian Association in its
regular meeting in the Upper Room of
Lane Hall.
These new programs will present
practical cases for group discussion
by members of the S.C.A., and will
provide a chance to develop a concep-
tion of the practical phases of Chris-
tian ideals beyond mere theorizing on
them. They are partially stimulated
by a challenge given to the S.C.A. in
its regular meeting last week by Prof.
Bennett Weaver, of the English de-'
partment, in which he urged that the
group set higher goals than those
they were at that time accomplishing.
Tonight's discussion is rather gen-
eral. It will be onethe contributions
Michigan can make toward develop-
ing a realistic life philosophy and to-
ward personality development. Rev.
H. L. Pickerill, student pastor of the
Disciples Church, and Elizabeth Lein-
Bach, director of student work in the'
Presbyterian Guild, have been asked
to attend the meeting and take part
in the discussion, which will form
the main part of the work of thej
meeting. Announcements and minor
businesses will a4lso be taken up.

the automobile and the 300 latest
models of American cars, will be open,
at 2 p.m. Saturday in Convention
The show has expanded from the
four cars in its first year to 300, rep-
resenting the products of 24 of the
world's largest manufacturers. When
-- the first show was held in 1900, there
were only 4,192 cars on the road,
as against approximately 27,000,000
Will Run Eight Days
The exposition will run eight days,
including Sunday, and it is expected
that it will serve as a reliable yard-
stick for the trade's optimistic belief
that sales in 1937 will cross the 5,-
000,000. mark.
Barney Rapp and his celebrated
band, the New Englanders, have been
contracted to play for the show and
will make up a part of the entertain-
ment to be offered.
Outside of the formal show of the
cars the American Automobile As-
sociation will present a scientific
battery of driver-testing equipment.
It will enable motorists to take tests
to learn their fitness for driving and
their driving weaknesses.
Trailers Also Shown
Thirty house trailers, the products
of 12 manufacturers, will also form
an integral part of the show. One
of the trailers measures more than

20 feet in length, offers upholstery in
blue and gray tapestry, custom-built
coach, sink with hot and cold water,
oven stove, automatic hot-water
heater, porcelain electric refrigerat-
or, Pullman berths, studio couch,
built-in aerial for radio, electric or.
vacuum--everything but a fireplace
and a cat.
The Little Theatre again will showf
safety filmsand motion pictures con-
cerning the manufacture of cars from
the first hatching to the moment
they jiggle off the conveyor line under
their own power.

Jobs Are lied
To Apply Soon
Addressing 200 seniors and grad-
uate students who will be seeking em-
ployment in February and June, Dr.
T. Luther Purdom, director of the
Bureau of Occupational Information,
yesterday afternoon emphasized the
necessity for complete cooperation
with his bureau. Applicants for teach-
ing, business and other position are
expected to register with the Bu-
reau from Nov. 18 to Nov. 21.
The Bureau has never charged for
the service it renders, Dr. Purdom
said, and consequently expects each
applicant to fill out the registration
material with a minimum of errors.
"The registration material must be
returned the following week," he said,
"because representatives of business
firms will be in Ann Arbor at an
earlier date this year to interview
Dr. Purdom expects the representa-
tives of 150 of the nation's national-
ly-known corporations to visit the
campus before July.
Dr. Purdom also emphasized the
Importance of personal appearance
for those being interviewed.
"High scholarship will not guaran-
tee a job for one shabbily dressed,"
he said, "because the company's rep-
resentative is the final judge of which
person gets the position."
Miss Bertha Ashby, in charge of
placing teachers, told the group of
the importance of obtaining good
photographs for the blanks.
"A good photograph is just as im-
portant as a record of high scholar-
ship for one securing a teacher's po-
sition," she said, "and those using
snapshotsaof themselves in athletic
uniform and in cap and gown are
only hindering their chances."

Aga-Oglt To Direct
Islamic Art Exbibit
An exhibition of Persian and
Islamic art will be on display during
February and March, 1937, in the
M. H. de Young Memorial Museum,
San Francisco, under the direction
of Prof. Mehmet Aga-Oglu of the Re-
search Seminary in Islamic Art.
The exhibition, the largest and
most complete of its kind ever to be
attempted, will include objects loaned
by the Musee du Louvre, Musee de
Cluny and Musee des Arts Decoratifs
in Paris, the Metropolitan Museum
of Arts in New York City, the Fogg
Museum in Cambridge, Mass., the De-
troit Institute of Art, Fine Art Mu-
seum of Boston and many other lead-
ing public institutes of both this
country and of Europe.
Private owners are also cooperat-
ing and many rare and unique mas-
terpieces of Islamic art are being
loaned for the exhibition.
"The purpose of the exhibition,"
Professor Aga-Oglu stated, "is to
present the art of Islam to the wes-
tern part of the United States, a sec-
tion of the country which is little
familiar with the artistic culture of
the Near-East."
Objects in the exhibition will il-
lustrate all of the phases of Islamic
and Persian decorative arts, includ-
ing such fields as art of book bind-
ing, Persian miniatures, Persian and
Turkish rugs, silks, tapestries, bronze
pieces, ceremacs, pottery pieces, and
carved ivory and wood.
Professor Aga-Oglu has the dis-
tinction of being the only professor
in the country with a chair devoted
exclusively to the history of Islamic
art. He has recently been made hon-
orary curator of the M. H. de Young
Memorial Museum at San Francisco
and he holds a similar post with the
Detroit Institute of Arts.
