The Value Of Cinema
As Educational Medium
(Continued from Page 1)

Statue By Fairbanks
Shown At World's Fair

declared that "people are today tak-
ing their view of the world in part
rom the motion picture theatre."
Commercial companies, he added,
in their so-called educational pic-
tures, which are usually historical,
spread as much misinformation as
they spread information, and people
ae prone to accept more of what they
see in the moving pictures than of
what they hear through other media.
While some of the pictures, such as
"Emile Zola" and "Louis Pasteur,"
are truly educational, many more,
with "Henry VIII" the prime ex-
ample, are highly misleading.
Showing how the cinema molds
public opinion, he cited the example
of "Birth of a Nation," which, he
said, has probably been seen by more
people than any other picture, and
which did muchto stir up animus
against the Negro.
Pictures Prove Educational
He pointed out how the govern-
ment is using motion pictures as an
educational medium, and gave as ex-
amples "The Plow That Broke the
Plains" and "The River," both Fed-
eral projects, which showed many
people the value of conservation.
In the last lecture of the Inter-
national Relations Series, Robert H.
McDowell, research associate in Meso-
potamian Archeology for the Museum
of Classical Archaeology, explained
that the present imperialistic duel
between the Slavs and the Germans
dates back to the 17th century when
competition arose over newly founded
trade routes to India.
Mr. McDowell attributed later
clashes between the Slavs and Ger-
mans to their natural situations and
cramped quarters. The Drang Noch
Osten of the Reich is an old, in-
evitable process, he observed, and the
Slavs in turn have always tried to
gain an outlet to the sea.
Under these conditions, he de-
dlared, the Turkish Empire fell into
a state of decadence, from which it
has only recently revived. Today
Turkey is busy building an industrial
economy. The form of state socialism
which has been adopted, however, has
hone of the ideologies of other social-
ist groups.
Explains Arab-Jewish Problem
Mr. McDowell explained the Arab-
Jewish troubles in Palestine as the
result of a clash of promises which
England made during the World War.
The Jews were promised a national
homelnd and the Arabs were as-
sured their independence. He did not
believe that .this was "double-deal-
ing" on England's part, but that two
divisions of the government has made
separate promises to the two groups.
Prof. Donal H. Haines of the our-
nalism department, giving the last
talk of the literature series, "The
Modern Short Story," declared that
the subsidizing of artists in Finland
is in marked contrast to America's
handling of artists.
The Finland plan, he explained, re-
leases the writer from market pressure
which causes American authors to
write hurriedly and mechanically. If
the young writer intends to have his
work accepted by commercial maga-
zines, he suggested, he must pay at-
tention chiefly to two things-the
publisher and the public.

'The Inferno,' Winning Michigras Float

* * *
The life-size statue, "Nebula," by
Prof. Avard Fairbanks of the depart-
ment of fine arts is being exhibited in
the Contemporary Arts Building at
the New York World's Fair.
The statue has been selected by
critics as one of the finest examples
of Professor Fairbank's works. Two
other pieces are on display at the
Stevens Hotel in Chicago.
Professor Fairbanks has also been
selected by the American Physician's
Art Asociation to give a demonstra-
tion lecture at the American Medical
Association meeting at St. Louis May
18, which has been designated Avard
Fairbanks Day. The lecture will con-
sist of a stage demonstration of how
a sculpture is made.
Professor Fairbanks will also lec-

the Honolulu Academy of Arts this
summer. His work at the University
will include a course in sculpturing
and an exhibit and lecture at the aca-

Wiltse Replies
On Local Union

no more power to disestablish it thari
Joshua had to make the sun stand
still. Regarding back wages to strik-
ers, a settlement of the case was
made with the union by the Ann
Arbor Press.
"The complainants withdrew their
charges and requested a dismissal by
the Board several months ago. Our
contention is that where there is no
complaint there is' no case."
In handing down its decision the
Board quoted from a book published
by Wiltse on "The Abundant Life"
in 1937 comparing collective bar-
gaining with piracy, Jesse James'
banditry and Capone's racketeering.
"Collective bargaining,",'the Board
.uoted Wiltse, "is based on the force
Df numbers and not on the force
of justice. If encouraged it will break
down all law and ruin all govern-





and Art Series, on "Why Modernism
in Painting?" Prof. Walter W. Gores
of the architecture school stressed
that to fully appreciate modern art,
one must be able to distinguish be-
tween a work of art and a work of
nature. "One must eliminate sub-
ject matter," he stated, "to get the
true artistic idea."
Illustrating his lecture, Professor
Gores traced the development of
painting from ancient times to the
present, pointing out the great diver-
sity of art that has resulted today
because of its varied background.
This present age, he contends, is the
beginning of the greatest era of artis-
tic creation since the Renaissance.
Prof. Paul M. Cuncannon said in
his lecture on Fiorello La Guardia
that despite La Guardia's 14 years in
Congress, and his six years of serv-
ice as Mayor of New York City, he
is not likely to be nominated for
the presidency in 1940.

Children under 12 will be admit-
ted to the matinee performance to-
day of "Sable Cicada" at half-price,
Utah Tsao, chairman of, arrange-
ments, announced yesterday.
The matinee is at 2:30 p.m. and the
final performance is at 8:30 p.m.
today. Admission is 50 cents, 25 cents
for children at the afternoon per-
formance. "Sable Cicada" and an

legal institutes have been held in
many parts of the country, the ini-
tiative for most of them has come
from the bar associations.
The work for the institute will con-:
sist of discussions of specific prob-
lems in the' three subjects offered.
Prof. E. Blythe Stason, 'who has been
appointed to succeed Dean Henry M.
Bates who retires at the end of the
current year, will lecture on taxation.
He will be assisted by Mr. Morrison
Shafroth of Denver, Colo., former
General Counsel of the Internal Rev-
enue Bureau, and Prof. Paul G.
Kauper, editor of the Michigan Law
Meder To Discuss Labor
Mr. Albert E. Meder, member of the
firm of Beaumont, Smith & Harris,
Detroit, and Prof. Russell A. Smith
of the Law School, will discuss labor
law.. The lectures on wills and trusts
will be given by Prof. Lewis M. Simes
of the Law School.
Present plans are to have sessions.
on each of three days on each subject,
starting at 8:30 a.m. and continuing
to 3:30 p.m.:
Baek To"Law School
This new departure in institutes,
Professor Tracy explained, consists in
bringing the lawyer back to the law
school and away from his office. It
will be interesting, he said, to see
whether advanced legal education
actually has a strong enough attrac-
tion to pull the lawyer away from
his business for a short. time. How-
ever, Professor Tracy indicated, these
sessions may show that the law
schools have- a function to perform
in continuing the education of the
practising lawyer.

elected president of Toastmasters,

The collective carelessness of
Michigan students and faculty has
netted the University's lost and found
department a large assortment of
articles ranging from wedding rings
to zipper fasteners and from tie clips
to overcoats.
The collection is contained in a
closet and nine filing drawers in the
business office in Room 1 University
Hall. Students are urged to call for
their cherished belongings before
June, when the files will be cleared.
The stock seems to disprove the
legend that professors misplace their
umbrellas. A check of the supply re-
veals that most of the lost umbrellas
are of the feminine variety.

Students Meet
Gov. Dickinson
Political Science Group
Sees State Legislature
Ninety-one Michigan students were
given the opportunity to. meet Gov-
ernor Dickinson and several.members
of the State Legislature Thursday
during the annual political science
field trip to Lansing. '...v
The group, which was *aeoempanied
by Joseph Kallenbach, Daird M.
French, and John Perkins of the po-
litical science department, was in-
troduced by Rep. J. C. Town of the
lower house, but was prevented by
an executive order from being pre-
sented to the Senate.
Before their inspection of the "leg-
islature work" the students went on a
tour of Michigan State College at
East Lansing. They later visited sev-
eral governmental agencies including
the State and Treasury departments
and the Department of Welfare. At
a dinner in the evening Supreme
Court Chief Justice Howard Wiest,
Senators McCallum, Dotch and Brake
and Representatives Nichols and
Hamilton addressed the visiting stu-
dents. Other state officials who spoke
were Leslie Butler, the Governor's
secretary, C. W. Lucas of the High-
way Department, F. F. Fauri of the
Welfare Department and State Treas-
urer Dunckel.

to find in the lost and found a small
for une in bills turned in during the
last month. Even buttons have been
turned in by conscientious persons.
Articles most frequently mislaid are
scarfs, rubbers and gloves. The stock
of lost hats is 'doing well along with
that of fountain pens, pipes and re-
versible overcoats.
Among the unusual articles turned
in are several antique snapshots dat-
ed from The Hague and an old picture
locket. And if someone owns a wrist-
watch case that has been separated
from its better half, he may find a
visit to the lost and found depart-
ment fruitful.
The carelessness of students who
fail to write their names in books ac-
counts for the large stock of fiction
and text books being held by the
bureau. Owners are-notified by mail
whenever the book contains identifi-
Unclaimed articles are held for at
least two months. After this period
they may be claimed by the finder.
Of the remaining articles, books are
turned over to the Student Lending
Library and miscellaneous articles are
distributed by the director of social
service at the Univprsity Hospital..
