"West around Cape Horn" (Motion Pictures)

Hill Auditorium Lectures
Students, faculty members and townspeople will once again this year
have an opportunity to hear a distinguished program of lectures. Spon-
sored, as usual, by the University of Michigan Oratorical Association,
such well-known, international figures as Alexander Woollcott, Dr.
Paul van Zeeland, former premier of Belgium and Lord Strabolgi,
English statesman, will head a list which offers diversified entertain-
ment and reliable informative material to the listener.
Besides this internationally known trio, Col. W. Stewart-Roddie, will
deliver his "European Mosaic"; R. 'H. Bruce Lockhart, author of British
Agent, will tell how "An Englishman looks at the World"; Capt.
Warwick Tompkins will present his motion picture account of "West
Around the Horn"; Capt. C. W. R. Knight will make a return engage-
ment and Harrison Forman will report on his adventures in Tibet.
Admission to the lectures will again be small, with two prices, 75
cents for the main floor and 50 cents for the balcony. Because of the
attractions' importance the scale will change to $1.00 and 75 cents for
Woollcott and van Zeeland.
The return of Alexander Woollcott to the Hill Auditorium platform
is one that has been demanded by Oratorical clients. Or; his last appear-
ance here two years ago, the author of "While Rome Burns" captivated
a capacity audience with his anecdotes of the great and near great.
For the serious minded, Dr. van Zeeland's appearance is one of the
most important in recent years. Author of the famous van Zeeland
World Trade Report and the man who steered the Belgium ship of state
through several troubled years, van Zeeland has a wide reputation as
a speaker and intellectual.

worthy) has a record!that has placed
him in the forefront of British

It is rarely possible to hear such a brilliant array
of interesting lecturers as the Oratorical Association
is presenting this year. Eight names, such as R. H.
Bruce Lockhart, Col. Stewart - Roddie, Alexander
Woollcott, Lord Strabolg, and others, combine to
make this season one of high quality. Tickets can be



a prominent British statesman. His lecture undoubt-
edly should be of great interest.
Applications for tickets will be filled in the order
received. The Hill Auditorium box-office sales will
open October 17 and continue through October 2-5.

staesmn. -me wnp anc deputy-
leader of the opposition inl the House
of Lords, his words and books on
international affairs and economics
are recognized authoritative.
For romance of the bounding
main the program provides adven-
turous Captain Warwick Thompkins.
His log book for nine years on the
"Wander Bird" covers voyages to-
taling 100,000 miles and his book
sFifty South to Fifty South" won
universal acclaim. Probably better'
than any other living man, he is
qualified to tell the thrilling tale of
a voyage"west around Cape Horn."
Col. W. Stewart-Roddie presents
"European Mosaic" - tragedy face
to face with humor, romance op-
posite realism. Possessing the ability
to recreate vividly the scenes and
characters he describes, Col. Stewart-
Roddie's subject is one worthy of
his ability. And he is thoroughlyb
familiar with the European countries
which importantly contribute to the
world political picture.
Another speaker whose popularity
on a previous appearance resulted in
the Association negotiating for his
return is Capt. C. W. R. Knight who
is known throughout the United
States simply as "The Bird Man."
Just returned from leading an ex-
pedition to South Africa, he will
show films featuring such rarities as
the Coronation Eagle and White
Harrison Forman, contributor to
such magazines as Harpers, The
Readers Digest and National Geo-
graphic, will end the lecture series
with his tales of adventure in Tibet,,
upon which he is a recognized auth.
ority. It was Forman who acted as
technical advisor for the film {'Lost
Horizon" and he has what critics
describe as "an interesting story and
vivid motion pictures" of the mys-
terious eastern land around which
the film was centered.

Dr. Paul van Zeeland is probably the outstand-
ing figure among the younger generation of Euro-
pean statesmen. His rapid rise in the world of
finance marked him early as a person of remar-kable
abilities. The Report on World Trade
was universally acknowledged as be-
ing of great value.A
