Dr. Bruce Praises Work Done
In Postgraduate Studies Here

Concentration of allied depart-
ments into divisions of postgraduate
study is lauded by Dr. James D.
Bruce, vice-president in charge of
University relations, in his report to
the Alumni Advisory, Council re-
leased yesterday.
Major research into common prob-
lems has been made by the Divisionj
of Health Sciences and the Division
of Extramural Services, Dr. Bruce
stated, while the Institute of Fine
Arts and the Division of Social Sci-
ences have also developed signifi-
cantly.
Greatest developments in post-
graduate education have been made
in medicine, Dr. Bruce announced.
During the year 1938, he said, 1,807
doctors representing .273 communi-
ties attended post-graduate courses
at the University and in eight cen-

ters throughout the state. Courses
in nursing, he continued, were held
in six centers with an attendance of
1,097 students.
The Division of Health Sciences,
which in 1937 enrolled 4,902 gradu-
ate students, consists of the Medical
School, the School of Dentistry, the
Division of Hygiene and Public
Health, the School of Nursing and
the College of Pharmacy. It is also
affiliated with the Division of Social
Sciences.
The Division of Extramural Serv-
ices is made up of various agencies,
including the Library Extension
Service, the Bureau of Appointments
and Occupational Information, the
Bureau of Alumni Relations, the Bu-
reau of Cooperation with Education-
al Institutions, the Extension Serv-
ice and the Bureau of Government.

of programs being arranged by Pro-
fessor Abbot for classes in broadcast-
ing, will prove of interest to students

By RICHARD ITARMEL
In a constantly changing world,
science stands as an "intellectual time
telesope," through which mankind
can look into the future, as well as
the past, Dr. A. J. Moulton, perman-
ent secretary of the American Asso-
ciation for the Advancement of
Science, stated in a recent radio
broadcast.
Sciencesis already capable of deter-
mining the exact date and hour of
eclipses for the next 10,000 years,
Dr. Moulton said. Science can already
judge how quickly the air, moisture
and low forms of life "are breaking
up the rocks of mountains which run-
ning water is carrying to the sea. It
is necessary, however, he added, to
discover what essential part of man's
nature is responsible for his scienti-
fic development.
The distinguishing characteristic
of man and the higher animals is the
brain, Doctor Moulton pointed out,
and the simplest and most important
mental process is the memory.
The brain is like a "photographic

plate," Doctor Moulton emphasized.
A man may look at an object, and
the image may last only one tenth
of a second, but the image in that
short time has made a definite mark
on the brain.
Doctor Moulton denied that the
missing link has been discovered as
a result of the sceintific research into
the past. He added, however, that
several types of man closely akin to
the ape have been reconstructed from
bone fragments.
Yet, man's scientific development
is largely due to his reasoning power,
Doctor Moulton pointed out. "Reas-
oning takes the materials of experi-
ence and of memory, such as the
lower animals have, and discovers the
essentials and the organization of
them."
East Talks On Michigan
A description of Michigan's scenic
beauties was furnished Tuesday night
by Ben East, noted outdoors writer
for the Booth Newspapers, before a
capacity audience in Hill Auditorium.

Spanish Group
Casts For Play
'Dream On An August
Night' To Be Given
The cast for La Sociedad Hispani-
ca's play, "Dream on an August
Night," has been chosen and rehears-
als are now in preparation, for pre-
sentation April 4 in the Lydia Men-
delssohn Theatre, it was announced
yesterday.
Marcia Connell, '39, has the leading
feminine role and Casey M. Carter,
'40SM, will play the male lead. Re-
spective understudies for the two
leads are Margaret J. Bryant, '39, and
Richard C. Gearhart, '39F&C. The
chief supporting role will be, played
by Janet L. Park, '39.
Tryouts for the play have been
plentiful, and at least two persons
have been selected to play each of
the 11 parts. A number of Play Pro-
duction actors were among the try-
outs, and these will help with techni-
cal difficulties.
This play is the first attempted by
La Sociedad Hispanica since 1932.
In that year a play was given after a
four year lapse.

The Deutsches Haus and the Mai-
son Francaise under the sponsorship
of the German and French depart-
ments will be established for the Sum-
mer Session to enable students inter-
ested in learning languages to be-
come proficient in conversation and
become acquainted with students with
similar interests.
The Deutsches Haus for men stu-
dents is being run for the first time
this summer. An outgrowth of the
German table of previous years, it
will serve as a center for extra-cur-
ricular activities such as socials, hikes,
picnics, lectures and dramatics. At
meal times and at the social hour
following when German will be spok-
en exclusively, women will be al-
lowed in the house. A German Glee
Club will probably be organized.
The Maison Francais, a house for
women students, will be run for the
third season this summer. Under
the directorship of Mme Jeanne Ros-
selet, of the French department of
Goucher College, the girls will pur-
sue similar activities to those of the
Deutsches Haus. The house will ac-
commodate 20 girls and 10 or 12
ooarders.
