Mrs. Stratton Encourages
Students To Emphasize
Creative Craftsmanship
The faith which the University of
Michigan has for pioneering in un-;
explored crafts is shown by the re-
cent establishment of an extensive
course in Ceramics in the College of
Architecture. What makes the
founding of this new department more
noteworthy is the appointment as
director a world famous figure in the
ceramic field, Mrs. Mary Chase Strat-
ton of Detroit,
According to Mrs. Stratton, the
Ceramics Department is endeavoring
to encourage craftsmanship and cre-
ativeness on the part of the students
in the course. More and more, she
said, ceramics is taking its place in
the role of a unifier of all the arts,
history, archaeology, and philosophy
by expressing itself in the medium of
clay.. In her classes both beauty and
utility are recognized in the produc-
tion of pottery and tiles. r -
Experiments Encouraged
A single desire guiding Mrs. Strat-
ton's handling of the course is the
emphasis on craftsmanship. The stu-
dents are encouraged to experiment
with designs, methods of construc-
tion, and surface treatment. More-
over, there is no machinery for stan-
dardization of their works. The old-
fashioned potter's wheel is still used.
Much of the students' efforts have
been 'put toward developing and ex-
perimenting with new finishes. After
each finish is completed, a detailed
formula and record is made. By re-
cording her experiments with her
own work, Mrs. Stratton has com-
piled information of considerable use
to the artisan who works in ceramics.
The significance of these records was

recognized by the University of Michi-
gan, when at its eighty-sixth com-
mencement, Mrs. Stratton received an
honorary degree of Master of Arts.
This was the first time the University
had given recognition for distinguish-
ed work in the crafts.
. Does Own Work
Besides directing the ceramic course
here, Mrs. Stratton also does work on
her own. Her pottery in Detroit has
developed into a workshop of distinc-
tion. There are only about five such
potteries in the entire country. From
her shop emerges the Pewabic Pot-
tery which has earned nationwide
renown. Mrs. Stratton's tiles and
mosaics have been placed in churches
and public buildings in many cities:
She made the mosaics for the ceiling
in the Detroit Library, the fountains
and niches in the Art Institute, the
decorations in the St. Paul Cathedral,
the blue lining of the Rackham pool
in Detroit, and the faience in the
crypt of the National Shrine of the
Immaculate Conception in Washing-
Students Develop Expression
Mr. Howard Whalen, young teach-
ing assistant and instructor in Cera-
mics Department well expressed the
artistic theme of the course, saying
that the students were developing
a medium of plastic expression which
was contemporary in feeling.
The placing of a course in ceramics
in the College of Architecture is co-
incident with the rising importance
of this medium in the fine arts, home
furnishings, and industry.
French Group Picks
Koella As Instructor
Prof. Charles E. Koella of the
romance languages department will
act as one of the directors and in.-
structors at the annual Institute of
French Education this summer at
Pennsylvania State College, it was
announced here recently.
In addition to directing all oral
French, Professor Koella will teach
advanced composition and stylistics
and lecture on French literature to
the graduate students attending the
summer meeting.
Prominent for his work in organ-
izing French groups on campus, Pro-
fessor Koella founded the Summer
Session French Club in 1935. The
following year he was instrumental
in establishing Le Foyer Francais,
French house for students desiring
extensive practice in French conver-
sation during the summer session.
last year Professor Koella also acted
as advisor to Le Cercle Francais and
directed its production of "Ces
Dames Aux La Chapeaux Verts."

Low Cost Housing Incre

Housing conditions in Ann Arbor
are definitely improving, according
to Thomas Keaton, spokesman for the
local labor .unions.
Small homes are being built and
contracted for at a rate which may
well send the figures into several
hundred thousand dollars by fall.
The need for these new homes has
been clearly shown in a report by
Prof. Richard U. Ratcliff of the Busi-
ness Administration School.
In his report Professor Ratcliff
points out that due to the shortage
of homes rents are out of proportion
to the industrial worker's income.
Local workers have been forced to
live above their means in Ann Arbor
or move to the suburbs or neighbor-
ing towns and villages. Of the indus-
trial men working in Ann Arbor and
renting homes, only 63.9 per-cent live
in the city, and of the home owning
group, more than 29 per cent live
outside of Ann Arbor.
At present there is a definite short-
age of cheap rental homes, the aver-
age rent running between $50 and
3030 or 7000

$125 per month. Keaton believes
that the new homes will rent for, as
little as $25 or $30 per month.
The creation of these new homes
should eliminate to a substantial de-
gree the threefold complaint caused
by the housing shortage and noted by
Professor Ratcliff. These are social
evils, the high cost of housing and
the provision of homes for certain
income groups.
