From the seclusion of her French haven, Mrs. Wallis Simpson
(above) announced her willingness to give up King Edward so that he
miglht retain his throne. However close friends said today that she had
determined to become the bride of Edward despite this statemnt. The
statement of the twice-divorced American woman for whose love the
monarch has defied his government, was read to the press. by Lord
Brownlow, private secretary to the King. This picture of Mrs. Simpson
was taken several weeks ago at polo matches at Hurlingharp, England-
S pn Will Not Be Conquered
By Any Power, Says Albaladejo

The proposed change in the license
w fees for peddlers and hawkers' which
has caused so much controversy
among the sandwich men serving
fraternitywand sorority houses on
campus was finally voted down by
the council at a meeting Monday
Introduced for the third time at'
the council meeting, the proposed
amendment to the hawkers and ped-
dlers ordnance carried with it no
recommendation from the committee
t in charge as it was put to a vote
after Ald. Max Krutsch denounced it
as detrimental to the interests of
local tradesmen.
As the ordinance now stands sand-
wich men serving the students must
pay a license fee of $150 and their
assistants must pay an additional
license fee of $10 each. It was this
latter item which caused the con-
troversy, as the sandwich men
charged that with such a fee to be
paid, they could not afford to employ
student helpers.
The proposed amendment was vig-
orously attacked by A 1 d e r m a n
Krutsch, as 1,e asked the council to
stand back of their business men in-
stead of weakening them. He saidj
4:he had helped circulate a petition1
which protested the amendment
while another lengthy protest from
the business men is included in the
council records.

"Impossible," said Prof. Jose M.
Albaladejo of the Spanish depart-
ment," it can never happen." This was
in answer to the question whether the
Spanish civilization would disap-
pear if Spain were to be absorbed
by Fascist Italy or Nazi Germany. "It
seems so evident that the Spanish
are heading toward just such a fate
for, as everyone knows, the insur-
gents are receiving money, planes,
ammunition, and men from both Italy
and Germany. To on-lookers, it ap-
pears that these two countries are
about to include Spain in the broad
expanse of their imperialistic policy.
But Spain will not be conquered by
Italy, Germany, or any other foreign
History Repeats Self
Professor Albaladejo set about to
prove his statement on the grounds
that history repeats itself. He as-
serte that the first occasion where
the Spanish language might have
been changed by an invading power
presented itself with the invasion of
the Carthagenians. The struggle that
ensued was between the people of
Sagunto and the Carthagenians. The
Carthagenians, with their entire
army, were able to conquer the Span-
ish people of this small town. The
citizens, however, rather than sur-
rendering, preferred to die at the
hands of the Carthagenians before
submitting to their domination. "The
struggle," he said, "repeated itself
later in the case of the Numantines
and the Romans. The Numantines;
wepe the inhabitants of a small town
in Spain then known as Numancia,
but later renamed Soria. These gal-
ant people withheld a long siege of
battles led by the best Roman gen-
erals, but finally chose the same fatet
as the people of Sagunto."
Moors Were Problem
"In 711 A.D. Don Julien, a traitor
to Spain, opened the way for an in-
vasion by the Moors, he added. The
vasion by the Moors" he added. "The
uccessful in overcoming the Span-
ish people. Instead the tables were
urned on the Moors, and after 781,

years (711-1492) all of the Moors
had been, absorbed or expelled by
the Spanish," he said.
Later still, in the Napoleonic period,
Napoleon's forces fought for six
years against the people of Zaragoza,
also a Spanish town, Professor Alba-
ladejo said. In this instance the
Spanards repelled the invaders, .and
it is said by some that Zaragoza is
the burial ground for Napoleon's
forces, he declared.
Professor Albaladejo drew his con-,
clusions from these cases and stated
that, "Spain is not a militaristic na-
tion. Instead it is one composed of
individualistic people, pure and
simple, who will not submit to the
rule of other nations. It is of great
importance to observe that even
though the Spanish were over-
powered in somie of these battles, not
once did they surrender," he declared,
"for they fought bitterly to the end.
Of even greater importance is the
fact that never has a conqueror been
able to absorb the Spanish people," he
said, "I am safe in making the state-
ment that Spain will not be con-
quered by Italy, Germany or any,
other foreign power."

Less Tlan I&10Sudents
ErMolled in 400 Year
Old Institution
4 unique school for carillonneurs
which has a stpdent body of less than'
10 and is situated in buildings with
history and tradition dating back
more than 400 years, was described
by Prof. Wilmot F. Pratt, Universityj
carillonneur, in an interview yester-
day. .
In the famous old St. Rombaut
Tower of the 13th century cathedral
of Malines, Belgium, carillonneurs
have trained and played since 1500,
Professor Pratt said. Here has grown
up and now, under the guidance of
Jef Denyn, foremost modern bell-
playCr, is situated the only school for
carillon training in the world. There
are three professors and about eight
students who make up the faculty
and student body of this school, and'
most of the class work is done in the
great tower, surrounded by all the
tradition of an ancient Cothic cathe-
dral and the memories of reverenced
carillonneurs who have played the.
bells for over 400 years. The bells
of this tower were cast by 12 different
I founcries, and the largest dates from
1480, testifying to their age and per-
manence and to the primitive qual-
ities of some of the parts of the caril-
Classwork Indivdual
"Class work in the school is mainly
individual," Mr. Pratt continued. "We
have one or two theory classes and
also a course where we study the
mechanism of the carillon. At the
end of this course we must know how
to install a carillon in the Belgian
manner. But most of the work in
school was learning and practicing
the technique; ofcarillonplaying.
There were two professors who helped
us do this, and the third member of
the faculty was a harmony professor
under whom. we learned the best ways
of arranging music.nThere were two
lessons a week, one in the school
building and one in the tower. Out-
side of this we practiced many hours'
connected to bells. Then there were
on practice keyboards which were not
spe:ial hours io practice in the tower,.
two hours on Saturday and Monday,
and one on Sunday."
400 Steps To Carillon
To reach the carillon, Mr. Pratt
added, required climbing a spiral'
staircase of 400 steps, which "took'
the place of 4 physical education
cpurse in the shool." Here was the
clavier of the old carillon with rough
woodenl handles which had been used
for centuries.in playing the bells, and
here, was also an interesting mech-
anism that automatically chimed the
quarter hours. This resembled the

mechanisms in music boxes, only on
a larger scale. It was a large cylin-
der in which pegs were fitted in dif-
ferent positions, and as this turned,
pegs in various arrangements were
pushed down onto long horizontal
planks connected with the transmis-
sion wires of the bells and struck
various notes, resulting in a tune as
the wheel turned. All students in the
school had to know how to fit the
pegs into this cylinder to produce dif-
ferent arrangements.
In St. Thomas Choir
"There were five requirements to
be met on the final examination,"
Mr. Pratt stated. "First you were
given one difficult piece to play. Along
with this you had live pieces to pre-
pare, and on the day of the exam
the professors drew a number from a
hat and you had to play the corre-
sponding one of the five pieces. As
third part, you were given a melo y
to harmonize and play on the bells,
and then you had to play an original
composition of your own. The most
diflicult part came last. Once in the
tower, you were given a strange mel-
ody which you were to play at sight
and harmonize at the same time.
Preparations for the exam took sev-
eral weeks." The whole course takes
ordinarily three years, but Mr. Pratt
was able to finish in one year. The
master, Jef Dnyn, at 80 is the great-
est living caillonneur in the world
and always plays from memory. He
is the subject of a poem written
about the last concert played on the
bells in the tower' before the Germans
occupied the town during the war.
Five Requirements
Mr. Pratt's interest in carillon-
playing arose, he said, when he was
a member of the choir of St. Thomas
Church of New York City. At that
time Mr. George Arants gave a set of
21 bells to the church and Mr. Pratt
was asked to try them. This started
his carillon experience, and for a long
time he played without any lessons.
Realizing the growth of importance
of carillons in America, he decided
to specialize in carillon playin and
went to Malines on a year's leave of
absence. This summer Mr. Denyn in-
troduced him to Prof. Earl V. Moore
and Dr. Charles A. Sink, president of
the School of Music, and he was in-
vited to come to Ann Arbor.
Carillon playing is something like
that of an organ, Mr. Pratt stated,
only it requires much more energy.
The clavier from which it is played
consists of two rows of pegs which
correspond to the keys on a piano.
Foot pedals work the large bells.
Playing old carillns required much
work and definite pounding on the
keys, but much of this has been done
away with in the Michigan carillon,
as the transmission has been equipped
with ball bearings, making it the
most advanced mechanically in the
world. There are few regular scores
for carillons, and each carillonneur
adapts music to hi own bells or
makes his own compositions.

Era sums Deserves More Study,
Says Hyma At Commemoration

Although we of the twentieth cen-
tury can understand Desiderius Eras-
mus better than the people of the
18th, 17th, or the 16th centuries, Profs
Albert Hyma of the history depart-
ment breught out yesterday in his
commemoration lecture, the famed
Dutch scholar and humanist deserves
more serious study than the century
has given him thus far.
The Erasmus celebration was
opened by Prof. L. I. Bredvold, head
of the English department, when he
told of the distinctive qualifications
of Professor Hyma, who was knight-
ed by Queen Milhelmina of the
Netheriands for his representation of
the United States last summer in the
world celebration, for the work of
delivering the address before the
After the lecture in an interviewi
Professor Hyma admitted that of
the four scholars giving addresses in
Holland he had been the only one to
tell anything of Erasmus that was
not entirely complimentary.
However such remarks told us the
most of the man and, Professor
Hyma stated, although Erasmus

wrote some very bad literature, made
some great mistakes, and made
statements that had to be "taken
with a grain of salt," such details
are mere finishing characteristics to
the nature of this man who for a
period of about 20 years was the
"prince of humanists and the intel-
lectual king of Europe."
The reforms proposed by Erasmus,,
Professor Hyna further declared,
made him a thinker years in advance
of his age. In his promotion of in-
ternational peace in an age where
war was thought of as inevitable, in
his desire for universal liberal edu-
cation, in his demands for thorough-
going changes in church and state,
Erasmus made attacks which though
very largely negative in direction set
the stage for action in, an age of
greater enlightenment.
"His work was great, his influence
varied, and his life picturesque," Pro-
fessor Hyma stated. Desiderius in
Latin means beloved, Erasmus in
Greek means beloved and this Dutch
scholar is beloved to many scholars
of this day and those of the past.
