Mlle. Eve Curie
Tells Womren' s
Peet I War
(Continued from Page 1)
and munitions makers toaay in
France.
Mile. Curie, usually gay and optim-
istic, becomes serious when she speaks
of the war. "The French do not con-
sider it a joke," she points out. She
is firmly opposed to armed aggres-
sion-"we can only hope that it will
be short.
"However, we are prepared for a
long war. Bad as the war is it is not
much worse than the kind of rpeace
which immediately preceded the war.
We French people realize that the
kind of persecution and oppression
with which we have been faced these
last several years cannot be tolerated.
It must end forever."
Of American neutrality, the young-
est member of a great scientific fam-
ily, states, "France is proud of Ameri-
can sympathy, but does not feel that
America is needed in the conflict. We
have too many soldiers already."
Mlle. Curie will be introduced in
Hill Auditorium by Alice C. Lloyd,
Dean of Women. She has contracted
for forty lectures during her visit.
This will be the sixth lecture of this
year's Oratorical Series.
All-Bach Prograin
Will Be Presented
For Vassar Fund
Local Bach enthusiasts will be
offered a veritable feast of the mas-
ter's music at an all-Bach program
to be given at 8 p.m. Sunday and
Monday at the home of Mr. and Mrs.
Guy Maier, 411 Lenawee Drive.
The program, presented by the
Maiers are part of a campaign to aid
the Vassar College Endowment Fund,
will feature Miss Marie Zorn, who
has been acclaimed as one of
the foremost pianist-interpreters of
Bach's music.
Miss Zorn's program will include
six chorale preludes, 15 "little pre-
ludes," the Chromatic Fantasy and
Fugue, Three Preludes and Fugues
from "The Well-Tempered Clavi-
chord" and the "Italian" Concerto.
Since the seating capacity of the
Maier home is limited, Mrs. Maier
emphasized yesterday that only 50
people will be accommodated each
night, and that it is advisable to re-
serve' places at once by mail or tele-
phone. Admission price will be $1.
Dorm Will Honor

the late Dean of the Graduate School,

given by residents of Lloyd House to-
night, the dormitory bearing the name
of Dean Lloyd..

Lloyd, Dean of Women, Miss Alice
Crocker, Dr. Margaret Bell, Mrs.

Prof. and Mrs. Morris P. Tilley and
Prof. Arthur L. Cross.

Camps Paths
Thj-ig*'I So -
Cause Damage
The old problem of vandalism and
destruction of University grounds and,
equipment has cropped up again with
the coming of winter, building andl
ground officials said yesterday. 1
Plagued throughout the fall by the
paint thattwarringclasses smeared
over University signs and buildings
before Black Friday, the building and
grounds department must now deal
with the havoc caused by paths made
through the snow.
Paint on University property caused
at least $500 damage last semester,
it was estimated yesterday, and other
damage such as defacing of signs and
destruction of shubbery forced the
University to an approximate total
expenditure of $1,000.
Unknown now is the amount the
University will have to spend as a re-
sult of the many paths hurrying stu-
dents are now making. These paths
which will necessitate reseeding in the
spring, are all over campus, it was
said.
Amateur trailblazers have dispensed
with the long walk from Angell Hall
to the Union, having worked out a
short cut that provides a perfect hy-
potenuse to the walks formerly used.
Ifaven Hall's approaches are now
joined by homemade path, and the
broad stretches about the diagonal
walk are covered with a network of,
paths, ingeniously formed even though
unthought of by engineers.
Union Smoker
To Be Tuesday
Spokesmen To Discuss
Freshmen Activities
Initial plans for the Union's activi-
ties smoker held each year at. this
time were announced yesterday by
Charles Kerner, '41E, in charge of
the program. The smoker will be held
at 8 p.m. Tuesday in the Union.
At this time eligible freshmen will
be given an introduction to the va-
rious campus extracurricular activi-
ties, Kerner said. Campus leaders
will present the aspects of their par-
ticular activities in a series of short,
informal talks.
Organizations that will be repre-
sented on the program are: The
Daily, Union, Michiganensian, Stu-
dent Religious Association, Alpha
Phi Omega, a scout organization, and
the Society of Automotive Engineers.
Refreshments will be served.

delssohn Theatre.
