Biographical Picture f
At Lydia Mendelssohnt
Maxim Gorky's 'University of Life,'t
the third in a series of biographical
films concerning the great RussianI
writer, will open a three day run at
8:30 p.m. today in Lydia Mendelssohn
Theatre under the auspices of the
Art Cinema League.
The film portrays the fruition of
Gorky's youthful genius at the Uni-
versity in the large Volga city of
Kazan. Following him through near
starvation and extreme poverty, the
picture is climaxed when, driven to
attempt suicide, his life is saved only
by fortunate circumstances.
Gorky has gone to Kazan to get an
education for which he has a great
desire. Homeless, he is befriended by
another student, Semynov, but soon
finds himself in the street again
when his friend, a revolutionist, is
seized by the police.
There follow his experiences with
stevedores on the Volga wharves, the
harrowing days in Semynov's bakery;
his first contacts with the Russian
revolutionary movement of the '80's;
his first literary attempts; and, over-
shadowing all, his great struggle for
existence which was later to dominate
all his writings.
Tickets for all performances are
35 cents, and seats may be reserved
by calling 6300, Lydia Mendelssohn

eliminated from most radio stations

meeting of both groups had failed,
leading observers to feel that the

important that he get into con-
crete form the alternative bases of
licensing which the society is pre-
pared to offer to broadcasters so that
they can be considered in general
terms by the members of our board
at their meeting."
Miller could not be reached for
elaboration on his prepared state-
ment. At Buck's Long Island home it

of 'post-war reconstruction, will be
given by Prof. Lawrence Preuss of
the political science department at
8:00 p.m. today in the North Lounge

Preuss will consider the several
possible post-war worlds which may
come as a result of the present inter-
national conflict. A comparison will
be made between the respective ef-
fects which would emanate from a
Nazi or a British victory.
After deciding what outcome is the
most desirable one for the United

BELGRADE, Yugoslavia, March 12. le
-Yugoslavia, the last Balkan state S
ncommitted to either of the great n
elligerents, has agreed "in prin-
iple" to sign up with the German- is
talian-Japanese alliance, government t
ircles said tonight, but wants more A
ime before the pen is put irrevocably W
o the paper.
After hours of urgent conferences,h
egent Prince Paul and his advisers m
were understood to have decided to
ive in, but made these counter-pro- lo
osals to the German demands: U
1. That Yugoslavia sign immediate- p
y only a declaration of friendship c
ith Germany and thus be allowed c
transition period, before going all t
he way, to try to modify pro-British w
entiment in this country in an effort
o avoid possible internal trouble. t
2. That the German and Yugoslav s
overnments have a further discus- o
ion of Nazi demands for the demob- h
lization of the Yugoslavian army, for h
guarantee that the Yugoslavs will n
nake "no military, moves," and for
he right to pass troops through m
outheastern Yugoslavia fromBul-
,aria into Greece. b
This form of capitulation, it was
nderstood, was made upon repre-
entations by military leaders to
rince Paul that military resistance
vas impossible since the country is
ll but surrounded by Axis areas.
Premier Dragisa Cvetkovic and
oreign Minister Alksander Cincar-
larkovic will go to Berlin soon, it
vas said, to put the compromise for-

Possible Time, Topics
For Annual Sessions l
Preliminary plans were made last
night for the Student Senate's an-
nual spring parley.
The Senate Committee on parleys
and forums headed by William Todd,,

chairman, made several recommenda-
tions which will be sent to the All-

This Continuations Committee'is
comp:ised of representatives of all
leading campus organizations, those
who have worked on former parleys,
a faculty advisory sub-committee and
anyone who may be anxious to assist
with staging the parley. This group
will meet at 8 p.m. next Wednesday

It was recommended that the par-
ley open on Friday, April 26 with a
general session. A session was pro-
posed for Saturday afternoon with
another session in the evening. The
concluding session would also be held
that same night.
The war and its effect was recom-
mended as the parley theme. In the
main the topic would be related to
the possibilities of a post-war recon-
struction, economic and political do-
mestic pressures, and science and ed-
ucation in a war economy.
