the nations South of the Rio, will de-

tine and Chile; during the past sum-
mer he flew around South America,

background of many journeys for
study in Europe, have enabled him
to interpret Latin America in light
of the present world crisis.

War" and "Neilson of Smith."

excavations have been published in

sor Gartsang lectured on the Univer-
sity campus last year on problems of
Biblical history.
Curator To Appear
"Medieval Manuscripts" will be the
subject of an illustrated University
Lecture by Prof. Chalfant Rolunson
curator of Medieval manuscripts at
Princeton University, on Thursday,
Nov. 27, in the lecture room of the
W. K. Kellogg Foundation Institute.
Professor Robison has held his pres-
ent position at Pinceton since 1920.
Prior to that time he occuied chairs

cluding "The Case of Louis XI of

and the Memoranda Roll of the
King's Remambrancer.
O'Flaherty's 'Puritan'
Will Be Shown Here
Liam O'Flaherty has created an-
other picture, which in the opinion of
several critics, "is one of the most
powerful, one of the most challeng-
ing produced since the same author's
prize-winner, 'The Informer'."
"The Puritan," a French produc-
tion, will be shown at 8:15 p.m.
Thursday, Friday and Saturday in
the Lydia Medelssohn Theatre by the
Art Cinemha League. Tickets will go
on sale at 10 a.m. Wednesday in the
League box office.
The film, the source of a great deal
of controversy in Ireland and par-
ticularly in New York state, is a deep
psychological study of a man who
kills a woman, and an expression of
opposition to censorship imposed out-
side the law. Full of subtle and soul-
ful meanings, "The Puritan" is one of
the most provocative films ever to
be shown in Ann Arbor.

Dickinson is to leave soon for a
