ing-rooms and in one of them became
acquainted with Katja Prinsheim,
whom he married in February of 1905.
His fame and position increased
from year to year, until the World
War provided a break in his career
and his spiritual development. He
published several more volumes, not-
ably the celebrated novelette, "Death
in Venice." Many of his stories and
essays written during the period of
war and revolution in Germany reflect
the doubts and sufferings which he
underwent. This is said to have been
the only unhappy portion of his life.
The idea for the great novel, "The
Magic Mountain," considered Mann's
masterpiece, came to him in 1912
when he was spending several weeks in
Switzerland with his wife, who was
suffering from a catarrh of the lung.
There he wrote the first chapter of
the work, intending it to be "the tri-
umph of extreme disorder over a life
founded upon order and consecrated
to it." The impact of the war caused
the author to revise his whole state
of mind, and he temporarily gave up
the work, although the plans for it
remained constantly in his mind. Off
and on for twelve years he worked
on the book, and it was finally fin-
ished and published in 1924. Critics
have usually ranked it with Marcel
Proust's "Remembrance of Things
Past" and Romain Rolland's "Jean-
Christophe" in importance in twen-
tieth century literature. In 1929 Dr.
Mann was awarded the Nobel Prize
for Literature.
Between 1924 and 1933 he pub-
lished two, novelettes only. He was
at work, however, on his next. great
literary venture, which was to be
based on the story of Joseph in the
Bible. He was not yet finished with
the first volume in 1933 when the
Rechstag fire heralded the advent
of German fascism. Dr. Mann im-
mediately quitted Germany in volun-
tary edie.
Although he had always called him-
self-a "non-political man," and still
regarded himself as such, he soon
found himself forced to state his posi-
tion on the events in the fatherland.
When an article attacking the Ger-
man emigres appeared in a Swiss
newspaper, he was moved to write a
reply, published Feb. 3, 1936, which
at once echoed around the world. In
it he not only defended his own posi-
tion but denounced the National So-
cialist State as the enemy of Chris-
tianity and civilization. As a result
he was deprived of his German cit-
izenship. Later in the same year he
reviewed his whole attitude toward the
Third Reich in a letter to the Dean
of Bonn who l1ad informed him that
his name had been stricken from the
University's roll of honorary doctors.
Subsequently Dr. Mann called upon
all creative artists to take part in the
anti-fascist fight.
Three parts of the "Joseph" work
have now appeared; the third, "Jo-
seph in Egypt," was published' this
week. Critical comment has been ex-
travagant, and when the entire work is
completed it is expected to rival "The
Magic Mountain" in concept and ex-
ecution.
Summer Law
Courses Open
Circuit Judge Phillips Will
Teach At Session
Students who wish to further their
work toward degrees in law, or who
wish to shorten the time required to
complete the regular law course, may
accomplish this by taking work in the
44th annual Summer Session of the
Law School from June 20 to Aug. 31,
according to announcements of the
program which are now available at
the office of the Summer Session.

The work of the Session will be
divided into two periods of five weeks
each with the schedule so planned as
to offer in successive summers the
prescribed courses of the first two
regular years of work toward a de-
gree. All courses will meet six hours
a week with four hours' credit value.
Students will be permitted to take a
maximum, of eight credit hours of
work.,
Visiting professors this summer
will include Prof. Thomas E. Atkin-'
son of the University of Missouri Law
School and Judge Orie L. Phillips,
United States Circuit Judge.

The extent to which the business

hopes of making a substantial come-
back this year and in 1940 was sharp-
yenphasized at the Chicago meeting
of the pay rogrAm . oi mmtissin
The non-ofce holdirg youn .er Re-
publicans who make up the Frank
committee of 217 rejected any idea
of hyphenating the, party label or

Republican platform and ticket. They
have consistently cold-shouldered the
coalition suggestions made by Sen-
itor Vandenberg of Michigan and
>thers.
Since then the recession has de-
veloped. The Republican program
group at Chicago appeared to nail
the Republican label to its flag-
taff for keeps when it put the re-
:ession and its causes first on its
policy study agenda.

center, ammunition depot and submarine base. During the spring maneuvers in which, it is reported, some
150 fighting craft will engage, the airplane carrier Saratoga (right), shown with some of her "brood," will
probably be included. Pearl Harbor is located on Oahu Island, not far from Honolulu.

stipulated, the magazine should be a
literary one, not one of opinion, that
it should pay no editorial salaries and
that it should circulate gratis to
Daily subscribers or at a nominal
price to others.
Administration of the publication,
the report continues, shall be in the
hands of an Editorial Board consist-
mg of a four-man graduate and fac-
ulty Advisory Committee, and a staff
of six editors. A subordinate staff will
be chosen by these editors.
The editorial staff, composed of an
editor-in-chief, a managing editor, an
essay editor, a fiction editor, a poetry
editor and a book review editor, will
select the material and, together with
the Advisory Committee, . will make
the final decision on the contents of
the magazine.
"The Advisory Committee, as a sep-
arate group, shall be the instrument
of contact between the Board inCon-
trol of Student Publications and the
Editorial Board of the magazine, hav-
ing the authority and the responsibil-
ity in all questions of general admin-
istration." The committee is given
the power to reject material which
it considers to be in conflict with the
aims and scope of the magazine.
The committee submitted names for
i both the editorial staff and the ad-
visory committee for action by the
Board.

Prime Minister Neville Chamber-

Italy faced possible disaster tonight
through a rapidly developing row
within the Non-intervention Commit-
tee over withdrawal of foreign fight-
ers from Spain.
Great Britain, France, Russia, Ger-
many - and- Italy, after bickering
through to a semblance of agreement
on the minimum number of volun-
teers to be evacuated, are sharply
'split now on a vital part of the
British-drawn plan-reestablishment
of non-intervention control of Span-
ish frontiers and ports.
Failure to reach an agreement with
Spain would leave Premier Benito
Mussolini of Italy with a foothold in

presence of his Blackshirts with In-
surgent Generalissimo Francisco
Franco's forces in. Spain.
