In discussing the character of Eme-
lia, he complained that the part has
never been properly interpreted. He
disagreed with the common con-
ception of Emelia as a common, stu-
pid woman with ratier loose morals.
He pointed out that as the respected
social head of a strict military com-
munity, she was the obvious one to
whom pretty, innocent Desdemona
would turn when she found herself
unable to cope with the responsible
position as general'z wi.
Members of the mathematics sec-
tion yesterday presented reports on
their individual research projects
during the past year. The morning
session heard addresses by Prof. L. S.
Johnston of the University of De-
troit, Prof. C. C. Craig of the mathe-
matics department and Dr. J. D.
Hill of Michigan State College.
Undergraduate papers were also
read at the morning session by Wil-
lard E. Swenson, C. L. Dolph, '39 and
Mrs. Kathryn Crippen Warner.
In the afternoon session a lecture
on Napier, the discoverer of loga-
rithms, was delivered by Prof. E. R.
Sleight of Albion College who re-
cently spent a semester at Edinburgh,
the home of Napier. Professor
Sleight commented on Napier's early
discoveries of multiplication and di-
vision instruments that were widely
used by the common people.
A report on the joint work of Mr.
B. Pecherer and Prof. G. Y. Rainich
of the mathematics department on "A
Series of Matrices" was delivered by
Professor Rainich, and Prof. Norman
Anning of the mathematics depart-
ment delivered the closing address
on "Some Associated Conics."
Prof. H. H. Musselman of the agri-
cultural engineering department of
Michigan S t a t e College briefly
sketched the background of farm de-
velopment, characterizing the period
immediately preceding the World
War as one of consolidation of the
gains brought about by improved
farm machinery. During this time
standardization became the predom-
inating theme in farm procedure.
The idea of standardization on the
farm has since been replaced by the
realization that each farm consti-
tutes an individual problem, said Pro-
fessor Musselman. Science and the
specialists in planting, handling of
live stock and the lay-out of farm
buildings and facilities, he said, can
do no more than make general recom-
Debates on the doctrines of such
thinkers as Plato, Aristotle and
Thomas Aquinas featured the meet-
ing of the philosophy section of the
The discussions were centered
around the papers of Father E. C.
Garvey of Assumption College, Pro-
fessor Roger Hazelton, of Olivet Col-
lege and Prof. John S. Marshall of
Father Garvey presented a new re-
view of Neo-Thomism, not only as an
historical presentation of the views of
St. Thomas Aquinas, but also as an
application of fundamental ethical
theories of Thomism to certain mod-c
ern social and economical problems.I
Professor Hazelton's talk dealt with
a critical review of ethical doctrines1
of Nicolai Hartmann, especially withc
the problem of the relation betweent
human purpose and the conception
of purposiveness in the universe. t
