Nov. Technic
Will Come Out
A Week Late
For want of a nail the battle was
lost, and similarly for want of two
small cuts of an acidizing process
the November Michigan Technic will
be delayed a week, Editor Bill Hutch-
erson, '43E, announced yesterday.
These cuts, Hutcherson said, were
due to arrive a week ago yesterday
from Battle Creek where they are
being processed, but they have been
held up due to a labor shortage. The
issue was originally scheduled to come
out last Monday.
Feature articles by four eminent
Michigan engineers, undergraduates
and alumni will be included in the
issue in addition to "Authorbiogra-
phies" and the regular sections, Tech-
nic Reflects, Explores and Presents.
Editor Hutcherson promises, how-
ever, that the delay in publication will
not diminish the popular interest of
Blaine Newman's lead article on "Po-
laroid." The second feature story will
be "Acid Control of Oil Flow" by John
G. Standt, '31E, while "Cooperation-
Production-Aircraft" by Jack \ T.
Gray, '39E, and "Theory of Limit De-
sign" by Robert Hay, '43E, are the
other main articles.
The big first of the November Tech-
nic will be the problem in ethics for
which the magazine will offer a spe-
cial five-dollar prize to the engineer
submitting the best solution. All an-
swers to the ethics problem will be
submitted to a special committee on
Ethics which is chairmaned by Prof.
Donald L. Katz.
Ancient Manuscript
Will lBe Topic for
French Talk Today
Professor Eugene Rovillain will
open the French lecture series today
at 4:15 in Room D Alumni Memorial
Hall with his lecture entitled "Un
Concours Academique Francais sur
Amerique au XVIIIe Siecle."
The lecture will be based on sixteen
manuscripts, believed lost, which were
found by Professor Rovillain in the
archives of the French Academy and
the Academy of Lyons.
In 1780 there was an announcement
of a prize to be given by the Academy
of Lyons on the subject, "Has the
discovery of America been useful or
armful to mankind?" Later on, in
1789, the French Academy offered a
prize on the same subject.
In answer, these sixteen 18th cen-
tury manuscripts found by Professor
Rovillain declare that the discovery
of America has been harmful to man-
kind and that the only redeeming fac-
tor has been the revolt of the English
colonies which have been a refuge
against religious persecutions and
have been instrumental in the de-
struction of traditional prejudices. It
is to the newly created United States
that the world owed the practical
proclamation of justice, of humanity,
of tolerance and of liberty.
Four of the manuscripts prophesy
and see Europe in ruins saved from
itself by the United States where
culture; industries, sciences and civi-
lization will have taken refuge.
Tickets for the seven lectures may
be bought in Room 112 Romance
Language Building or at the door of
the lecture.

cal Arts of the Cleveland Museum of

tra who is atrthe present time a visit-
ing professor of music at the Uni-
The recital will be opened by the

lections of Bach.
India's Independence
to be Debated Friday
The question of Indian indepen-
dence will be the subject of a forum
at the Hillel Foundation at 8:30 p.m.
Mrs. Francesca Thivi, a graduate

ganga Kraus, of the political science
department, will favor independence

tive religious services will be held in
