Quiet Nature Non-Existent
To Moderns, Vorenkamp
Tells Audience Here
Protesting against what he termed
"the modern dislike of still-life
paintings," Prof. Alphons P. A. Vor-
enkamp, of Smith College, yesterday
told a large audience gathered in
Alumni Memorial Hall that, "Quiet
nature does not exist for the mod-
Professor Vorenkamp, now on a na-
tion-wide lecture tour, spoke on
"Dutch Art," and chose as his specific
topic "The Dutch Still-life." He
traced the history of The Nether-
lands from the 15th to the 17th cen-
turies, showing the relationship be-'
tween historical developments and
art. He pointed out the religious
characteristics of 15th century paint-
ing, when "evel'ything was protected
by the church." "The wild fighting
from 1586 to 1610 retarded the de-
velopment of art," he said, "but the
rich trade with the Orient after 1610
brought great prosperity to Holland,"
enriching the -painting of the time.
The Smith College professor of art
illustrated the great exchanges in
Dutch art brought about by the new
ideas of the 16th and 17th centuries,
especially by greater consciousness of
light and infinite space.
With Van Gogh, he added, the still-
life painting became an acceptable
type of portrayal of art, even though
the fast tempo of modern life tends
to minimize its importance in the
eyes of contemporaries.
Dent Will Give
Wife Or Widow?
Because of the dangers of provin-
cialism and parochialism arising
from the limited contacts afforded
by fraternities and sororities, a need
has arisen for student movements
whose objectives counteract this ten-
dency, Dr. Bernard Heller told 70
persons Sunday night at the Hillel
Criticizing houses whose members
cast aspersions on rival houses, Dr.i
Heller commented, "An article must
be pretty poor if its salesman has to
exploit the alleged or even real de-
fects of the competitor's product."
Dr. Heller emphasized the import-
ance of careful consideration of the
student before affiliating with a fra -
ternity, "The environment and com-
panionship which he selects during
his college period will constitute one
of the factors which will determine
the direction of his interests and as-
pirations," he said, "It is at the for-
mative period that one must be espe-
cially careful that the influences
which play upon his character shall
be beneficial and not baneful."
