American Indian artists of the New
Mexico pueblos of San Ildefonso and
Sia, unhampered,by any attempts on
the part of modern artists to instruct
or control their native impulses in
art, have contributed to the collection
of colorful and symbolic watercolor
plates that are now being shown in
the wall-cases of the General Li-
The paintings show a devotion to
the simple world of nature which
surrounds the Indian and directs his
daily activities. Although in the
painting the artist stays very close
to the symbols used before him byl
his predecessors, a large amount of
freedom of style and initiative is al-
lowed the artist within these bounds.
This accounts for the great similarity
of all the paintings and yet the vast-
ness of variety in colors and symbols
The philosophy of life of the
American Indian is also depicted in
the collection. A distinct philosophyI
is almost bound to be back of the ex-
pressions of a people whose ancestors
have for centuries turned their eyes
devotedly to sky and earth.
The same color and style as is used
in the symbolic preponderantly re-
ligious drawings of the dances comes
to the fore in the paintings of purely
natural subjects as the colorful pic-

Union Council
To Inaugurate
Buffet Suppers
Also Plans Coffee Hour
Discussio Monday
In accordan~ce with its drive to
establish more intimate relations be-
tween faculty and students, the Ex-
ecutive Council of the Union, will, on
Sunday evening, inaugurate a new
series of weekly buffet suppers and
at 4:30 p.m. on Monday a supple-
mentary group of coffee hour dis-
cussions will get under way.
Proposed by the Student-Faculty
Relations Committee, the plan calls
for the active cooperation of the fac-
ulty and student body to make it a
To Be 'Bull Sessions'
"The coffee hours will be organized
along the lines of a big 'bull session,'
where students can leisurely discuss
with the faculty matters of the day
and. unfold their woes over a cup of
coffee," Frederick V. Geib, '38, co-
director, with Burton S. Wellman, '38.
of the meetings announced.
Informality will be the keynote of
this latest Michigan venture, which,
it is hoped will become, a campus
tradition as has already happened
at Houston Hal, University of Penn-
sylvania, Todd Union, University of
Rochester, and the Hart House.
University of Toronto.
"Up to date, the tap room has
been the gathering place for stu-
dents," Geib continued. "While this
has been effective to a considerable
extent, a student feels it difficult to
walk over to strangers and introduce
himself. The coffee hour will re-
move this barrier, for it will be en-
tirely in order for any person to
introduce himself to a group, student
or professor."
Admission Is Free
Admission to the daily discussions
to be held in the small ballroom and
terrace of the Union will be free.
There will be a nominal charge,
however, for the Sunday supper to
which women are also invited.
Plans for the supper have profes-
sors presiding at each table. "While
the event is mainly social, light' dis-
cussion will be encouraged, and fel-
lows are asked to bring their dates,"
H. Murray Campbell, '38, announced.
At the daily discussions, members
of the Executive Council of the Union
will pour.

Two new books by Prof. Earl L.
Griggs of the English department,
dealing with widely differing material
and climaxing several years of re-
search and study, have just been
published in England, Professor
Griggs revealed yesterday.
"Thomas Clarkson, The Friend of
Slaves," a biography of a great but
little-known abolitionist of the early
nineteenth century, has been pub-
lished by Allen and Unwin Ltd., of
Museum St., London, while "The Let-
ters of Hartley Coleridge," the cor-
respondence of the brilliant but un-
fortunate son of Samuel Taylor Col-
eridge, edited by Professor Griggs
and his wife, Mrs. Grace Evelyn
Griggs, has been issued by the Ox-
ford University Press, London and
New York.
A Biography
The story of Thomas Clarkson, ac-
cording to Professor Griggs, is one of
a great humanitarian endowed with
remarkable singleness of purpose,
who worked behind the scenes, con-
tent to gather information and place,
it at the disposal of others, caring
nothing for credit or applause as long
as his object was attained. He was,
nontheless, much admired by his
contemporaries and a close friend
of Wordsworth and Coleridge, Prof es-
sor Griggs said.
"Although the book is primarily a1
biography of Clarkson," said Profes-
sor Griggs, "it covers the whole evo-
lution of the struggle for abolition of
the slave trade and slavery, since
his entire life was consecrated to
this cause. Clarkson's interest in
the abolition movement began when
he was a college student, when he
engaged in a prize essay contest on
the- subject 'Is It Lawful to Make
Slaves of Others Against Their Will?'
Here he first learned of the shock-
ing inhumanity of the slave trade,
and became so absorbed in thesub-
ject that a few months later he ded-
icated his life to the eradication of
the evil.
"In the long struggle which fol-
lowed, he gave his time, energy, pri-
vate means and even health. It
is significant to note thataoinAR

'The Letters Of Hartley Coleridge'j
"The Letters of Hartley Coleridge,"
which Professor and Mrs. Griggs have
dedicated to Prof. Louis A. Strauss,
chairman of the English department,
is organized into a. connected -ac-
count covering the whole period of
Coleridge's life, with brief biograph-
ical comments and explanations in-
terspersed between the letters.
"Hartley's life was one of frustra-
tion," said Professor Griggs. 'orn
in 1796 in the period of his fatter's
greatness, Hartleybdeveloped intoa a
precocious child, but in spite of his
brilliance he continued long after
childhood was past to confuse reality
and fantasy. When he came face
to face with unpleasantness in any
form, however, he was wont to retire
into himself. He inherited from his
father a kind of volitional paralysis
which made it impossible for him to
devote himself to any sort of pro-
