indicated that commercial routes of
the early Greek period were under
military protection.
The structures unearthed were
about 30 feet square on the inside and
were built in the form of truncated
pyramids. The function of these
structures, Professor Lord indicated,'
was to serve as small fortresses of

Seen By Philologist
The return of classical literature
and studies in college curricula at
the expense of the social sciences was
envisioned here last week by John L.
Caskey of the University of Cincin-
nati before a meeting of the American
Philological Association.
Economists, political scientists and
the sociologists haven't much to offer
a troubled world, he prophesied, and
more educators are becoming aware
that a study of the experiences of
mankind is "as good as anything
Decrying recent apathy toward
classicAl studies and labelling the at-
titude as "the softening of the college
,urriculum," Caskey predicted an in-
crease in the study of Greek and
Latin along with reading of transla-
tions of classical literature.
Papers on the more technical as-
pects of a philologist's career ranging
from "The Homeric State in Peace
and War" to "Husband and Wife in
Athenian Law" were read by leading
philologists assembled in the Gradu-
ate School.
Prof. Warren E. Blake of the de-
partment of Greek was reelected as
a director and named to the associa-
tion's committee on monographs.
Prof. Arthur S. Pease of Harvard
University was elected president' in
the last day of the conference here.

Germany's Despotism Caused Art Cinema Offers
By Sluggish Thought,EatonSays Maxim Gorky Film

Measure Of Free Politicalt
Thought Greatly Needed,
Is Professor's Belief f
Nazi Germany's ruthless despotism'
is the 20th century product of a na-
tion's lifetime of sluggish political
thought, according to Prof. John W.
Eaton, of the history department.
Writing in the Quarterly Review
of the Michigan Alumnus, Professor1
Eaton warns that "until some mea-
sure of free political education does1
come, the German masses will prob-
ably continue to acclaim and support
any demoniac leader so long as he
appears successful."
Because of certain "deep-seated
traits" of national character, the
world's Reformation failed to bring
Germany promised individualism
and freedom-and the result is that
proud citizens of this nation failed to
discover a political philosophy which
kept pace with their superior facul-
ties of culture and reasoning, Eaton
"To an. inordinate love of theory
the Germans joined an incurable
habit of obedience to any strong rul-
er who might satisfy their impatient
and grandiose expectations, and for
the miracle they were prepared to
pay the price.
"This shorter and less certain road
to their objectives they preferred to
the slower and more painful and dif-
ficult road of political emancipation."
Professor Eaton does not agree
that when the present abnormal con-
dition of affairs in Germany has end-
ed the German people will come to
free expression. Instead, he believes
that "this present state of affairs is
not entirely abnormal, but one to-
ward which Germany has been mov-
ing for many centuries."
Both the Renaissance - in other
countries a stimulus to imagination
and individualism - and the Refor-
mation failed to touch Germany as
they did other European nations, ac-
cording to Professor Eaton. Conse-
quently the forces of feudalism were
strengthened in Germany while dis-
appearing on the rest of the contin-
Religion, Rationalism, and con-

temporary philosophical movements
also failed to achieve any lasting ef-
feet on Germany, Professor Eaton
points out.
Dr. Onderdonk Elected
To Philosophical Society
Dr. Francis S. Onderdonk, mem-
her of the College of Architecture
faculty from 1925 to 1933, was recent-
ly elected to the Detroit Philosophi-
cal Society.
At his induction Dr. Onderdonk
read his essay, first given in Vienna,
on a new theory of philosophy, "The
Fulfillment of the Possible Philoso-
phy and Aesthetics."1

"On His Own," second in the Rus-
sian three-film cycle on Maxim Gor-
ky's life, will be the first 1940 offer-
ing of the Art Cinema League to be
presented tomorrow and Saturday in
the Lydia.Mendelssohn Theatre.
Sequel to "The Childhood of Max-
im'Gorky" which was given a three-
day showing here last year, this sec-
ond film was secured upon request by
those who saw the earlier picture of
Qorky'sboyhood, Dan Grudin, repre-
sentative of the League said yester-
day. Critics of the series have been
unanimous in their praise of the com-
plete objectivity of the cycle.
Mark Donskoi again directs the
same cast of actors and actrec-Ps
that appeared in the first film.
