Von Neumann
To Give Ziwet
Lectures Here
Princeton Mathematician
Will Speak Tomorrow
On Measure Theory
Prof. John Von Neumann of the
Institute of Advanced Study at
Princeton will give the Alexander
Ziwet lectures for this year. He will
speak on "The Theory of Measure
in Groups" at 4:15 p.m. tomorrow
in Room 3011 Angell Hall.
Professor von Neumann won fame
in the field of mathematics 13 years
ago when he discovered a sound
mathematical basis for some of the
mathematics' most perplexing prob-
lems. Since then, he has made out-
standing contributions in both the
field of applied and pure mathe-
matics. He has also been a leader
in indicating new and fruitful fields
Of mathematical research. -
A native of Hungary, Professor
von Neumann has been connected
with the Institute for many years.
He was first a member of the facul-
ty at the University, but when the
Institute was founded, he was ap-
pointed to its staff.
Professor von Neumann was award-
ed the Bocher prize for an outstand-
ing memoir in the field of analysis
in December, 1938. This paper is
closely related to the topic of his
lectures here.
The Alexander Ziwet fund was
established by the late Prof. Alex-
ander Ziwet of the mathematics de-
partment in the College of Engineer-

Architecture School Presents
Ceramic Sculpture On Display

Porcelains And Pottery
Also Featured During
Two-Week Exhibition
Ceramic art, which is unique in
introducing the use of color as an
added dimension in sculpture, is
featured along with unusually treat-
ed pottery and porcelains in the
exhibit at the Architecture School,
which will be held from April 30 to
May 13.
Participating ceramists are out-
standing in the creative educational
and the commercial fields of cera-
mic art, and have cooperated in
establishing the course in this sub-
ject recently opened to University
Mary Chase Stratton, head of the
Pewabic pottery firm in Detroit, John
A. Foster, ceramic engineer at the
Pord River Rouge laboratories and
Maija Grotel, of Cranbrook have
exhibits of exceptionally fine crys-
talline and irridescent glazed pottery
and porcelain. Among the sculptors
exhibiting are Clivia Calder, of Arts
and Crafts, Detroit, Howard Whalen,
of the Architecture School and Helen
Brett Babbington of Detroit.
Three Michigan students also have
pieces on display: Charles Abbott,
Grad., Barbara Bolton, '40A, and'
Lucy Ann Kirkpatrick.
Though all ceramic work is popu-
larly thought of as pottery, ceramic
is as legitimate a medium for sculp-
ture as bronze or other traditional'
materials, according to Mr. Whalen.
Made from a clay similar to thatl
used in common brick, and glazed
with a glass coating, ceramic pieces>
are able to withstand the elements as
well or better than the more popularl
mediums of expression such as bronze'
stone and wood, he said.
John A. Foster has on exhibit,'
porcelain pieces in which he has,l
achieved unusual crystalline and]
"crakled" effects. The process em-.
ployed in this work is not practical,
for commercial production, accord-1
ing to Mr. Foster, and hence is limit-
ed to studio expression. In his work,1
Mr. Foster has reproduced the old
Chinese glazes of Sung wares, andi
the incised and pierced wares of thet
later Ming period.
Clivia Calder, who has achievedl
some of the largest pieces of direct-i

ly modelled ceramics, has a group of
human figures of extremely interest-
ing character and expression. Some
of the pieces by Helen Brett Bab-
bington are of the natural red clay
and are given a wax finish rather'
than glaze.
Mrs. Stratton's work is in pottery,
and is of the irridescent type for
which she is noted.
Several of the works cf Howard
Whalen are of abstract forms, and
may, according to Mr. Whalen, be
termed "surrealistic." Most of the
figures are highly glazed and richly
colored. Maija Grotel has achieved in
her pottery the most direct and origi-
nal shapes. All of the Grotel pieces
were hand-turned; they are of simple
form with bold designs on them.

Toronto Hears
Edmunds Talk
Pharmacologist Addresses
Dr. Charles W. Edmunds, head of
the pharmacology department, de-
livered an address last Thursday in
Toronto, Ont., at a meeting of the
Federation of Biological Sciences.
The University was represented by 22
members of the pharmacology, physi-
ology and biological chemistry de-
The title of Dr. Edmunds' address
was "Pharmacology in America." Ac-
cording to Dr. Edmunds this oppor-
tunity to speak was very fortunate
for the first pharmacology course in
America was established here at the
University just 50 years ago.
In addition to Dr. Edmunds, the
pharmacology department was also
represented by Dr. Nathan B. Eddy,
Prof. Jacob Sacks, Prof. John H. Fer-
guson, Prof. Hugo M. Krueger and
Prof. Margaret Sunwalt.

ASME Will Visit
Proving Grounds
The American Society of Mechani-
cal Engineers are sponsoring a trip,
open to anyone interested, to the
General Motors proving grounds at
Milford, Mich., tomorrow.
The party will leave from the En-
gineering Arch at 12:30 p.m. by
special bus, and will return to Ann
Arbor by 5 p.m. There will be a trans-
portation charge of 25 cents for
members and 90 cents for non-mem-
bers of the organization.
The annual trip of ASME to De-
troit, for a meeting with the Detroit
chapter, will be made on Tuesday,
May 16. The members will make an
inspection trip in the afternoon, fol-
lowed by a banquet in the evening

colonial interior 'and "White Steed"
will have a photographic set.
But what really has interested Miss
Roche is the set for "Here Come the
Clowns." "I disagree violently with
the set used in New York," she says.
"My set will be modeled after Barry's
own, impressionistic, interesting."
Of sets in general, she says: "They
should be functional. They are in-
tended to provide atmosphere. What I
try to get away from is the self-con-
scious. The scenery should strength-
en the scene." Max Gorleich of the
Group Theatre, she feels, is doing
the most interesting designing in the
American theatre at the present time.

Washing consists of more than just taking out the surface dirt and leav-

ing the clothes looking white.

It should be a process where the clothes are

cleaned all the way through. Ann Arbor's big four in the laundry field have
striven for years to give you really clean clothes. At a price which is but a
few cents more than it would cost you to send your laundry home, you can
Dbtain real laundry service. Have your laundry done the LAUNDRY way.
