Adventurers, Litterateurs, And
Statesrmen Give Variety To
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 Zeeeland, former premier of Belgium and Lord Strabolgi,
English statesman, will head a list which offers diversified entertainment
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 Brit-
ish 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 willre port 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. On 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 year. 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.

ALEXANDER WOOLLCOTT

Seldom is it possible to hear such a brilliant array of interest-

ing lecturers as the Oratorical

Association is presenting

this

year. Such names as R. H. Bruce Lockhart, Col. Stewart Roddie,
Alexander Woollcott, Lord Strobolgi, and others combine to
make this season one of high quality. Tickets can be obtained
from the Oratorical. Association, 3211 Angell Hall.

+> Lord Strabolgi (Commander Ken.
worthy) has a record that has placed
him in the forefront of British
statesmen. Chief whip and deputy-
leader of the opposition in the House
f Lords ,his words and books on
international affairs and economics
are recognizably authoritative.
For romance of the bounding
main the program provides adven-
turous Captain Warwick Thompson.
His log book' for nine years on
'he "Wander Bird" covers voyages
totaling 10,000 miles and his book
'Fifty South to Fifty South" won
'iniversal acclaim. Probably better
han any other living man, he is
qualified to tell the thrilling tail of
a voyage twest around Cape Horn."
Col. W. Stewart Roddie presents
'European Mosaic"-tragedy face
to face with humor, romance op-
posite realism. Possessing the abil-
ty to recreate vividly the scenes
nd characters he describes, Col.
Stewart Roddie's subject is one
worthy of his ability. And he is
horoughly familiar with the Euro.
jean countries which importantly
ontribute to the world political pic-
ture.

Dr. Paul van Zeeland
Dr. Paul van Zeeland is probably the outstanding
figure among the younger generation of European
statesmen. His rapid rise in the world of finance
marked him early as a person of remarkable abilities.
His Report on World Trade was
universally acknowledged as being
of great value.
The world listens when Dr. van
Z4lands oaks. His viit tn America

Another speaker whose popu-
larity on a previous appearance re-
'ulted in the Association negotiat-
ng for his return is Capt. C. W. R.
Knight who is known throughout
the United States simply as , The
Bird Man." Just returned frotn
leading an expedition to South
Africa, he will show films featur-
ing such rarities as the Coronation
:agle and White Rhino.
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 etLost
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.
Applications for reserved seats
