LIs Not Art1 lificial Moraes Say

Labadie Collection of Material Dealing
With Labor Is on Exhibition in Library

"The trend of.Brazilian architec-
ture is toward a new conception of
life and work in which men will live
closer to Nature and avoid the arti-
ficial means of some kinds of archi-
tecture," Stelio Moraes, graduate
Brazilian student of the College of
Architecture, said yesterday about
the exhibit of Brazilian architecture
now on display in the foyer of the
Architecture School.
"Modern Brazilian architecture is
a simple consequence of the struggle
to resolve the architectural problems
in their relationship to our climate,
our system of life, and the materials
that we can use,"' he said.
Times Have Changed
"I do not think it is rational or in-
telligent for many people to con-
struct their most important buildings
in the Greek or Roman or Medieval
style when so many important build-
ing materials such as concerte and
steel have been created and when so-
.ial, economic, and philosophical life
has changed so much," Moraes as-
"In Brazil before the new develop-
ment of its modern architecture,

WASHINGTON, March 23.-)-
War Department records disclosed
today the promotion of an Army offi-
cer criticized by Senator Ferguson
(Rep., Mich.) in connection with the
sale of government tools for scrap.
Ferguson charged in a Senate
speech March 9 that Lt.-Col. Paul
M. Bonner, in charge of redistribu-
tion and salvage of surplus Air Force
property, had signed an order which
resulted in the sale of tools which
cost the government $1,721,136, for
scrap at $36,924. The incident oc-
curred at Detroit last August.
D3sclosure that Bonner had been
romoted to a full colonelcy March
11-two days following Ferguson's
speech-came after an inquiry byw
the Michigan senator.
In his discussion of the incident on
the Senate floor, Ferguson called for
severe discipline for those responsi-
ble, declaring the Army should rid
itself of "timid and blundering offi-


many confused styles were used, and
many public buildings and homes of
Rio de Janeiro were imitations of the
Victorian, the French and Portu-
guese, and even the English architec-
ture, all of which had been partly
adapted to the Brazilian climate, of-
ten inadequately," he commented.
Brazil Goes Modern
"While the first stimulus came
from foreign travel and study and
publications, Brazil soon went ahead
on her own," he continued, "and the
modern architecture movement, hap-
pening to coincide with a building
boom, spread like wildfire."
"Brazil's great original contribu-
tion to modern architecture," Mor-
aes said, "is the control of heat and
glare on glass surfaces, for the Bra-
zilians first put the theory of mov-
able outside sunshades into practice,
and there is a fine example of this
in the Ministry of Education build-
ing now on exhibit here."
"There is a new conception of the
relationship of the buildings to the
city; formerly a building occupied a
whole city block in a. rectangle with
closed courtyards in the center, but
today the opposite has been done
with many public buildings, notably
the Ministry of Education building.
Buildings Are Airy
"A thin tall building has been plac-
ed across the center of the block, and
the broad sides of the building have
no walls but consist only of glass
sides and movable sunshades so that
the most amount of sunlight and air
can reach the building from the
ground floor to the top of the build-
The exhibit, which consists of en-
larged photographs of Brazils mod-
ern architecture, is sponsored by the
Museum of Modern Art, New York,
and will remain on display until
March'27, after which it will be sent
to other colleges in the United States.
"This exhibit of Brazilian archi-
tecture is certainly brilliant, color-
ful, and is greatly enhanced by its
tropical setting and brilliant sun-
light," Prof. G. B. Brigham of the
Architecture S c ho o 1, commented,
"but this splendid modern work
might be improved by integrating
with it some of the charm of its old-
er architecture."
