Symposium on
China Is Today
Miss Chao To Talk
On Ancient Philosophy
"Chinese Philosophy" will be the
topic for discussion at the third in
the series of symposiums on China,
which will be held at 7:30 p.m. today
at the International Center.
The discussion will be opened by
Miss Celia Chao, a graduate student
of philosophy from Shanghai, China.
She will discuss the three main
schools of Chinese philosophy, the
school of Confucius and his two disci-
ples, Mencius and Suntze, that of
Moti and the school of Laotze. Moti
is the latest of these though they all
prospered at about the same time,
the sixth century, B.C.
Miss Chao will discuss the older
Chinese political philosophy as well
as the individual ethics set forth by
these philosophers. She indicated
further that she will identify this
philosophy with modern Chinese
thought.
Guest chairmen for the discussion
will be Prof. Roy Lautenschlager, who
taught formerly at Hankow Univer-
sity, and Herman Yueh, president of
the Chinese Student Society.
The meeting is open to the public.

1,014 YEARS OF DEMO(
Ieland Se
exallpit 1 whic i"t. r(' of the world
should note of how people can live
together without political revolution
or violence of any type," Candidate'
Buster Cole of the 0th OC Class of
the Judge Advocate General's School
said yestei day.
Candidate Cole recently returned
from Iceland, where he was sta-
tioned for 13 months. IUe'said that
there are 150,000 people living on
the island. li 1930 they celebrated
the 1,000th anniversary of their
republican form of government.
"In the past 100 years there have
been only three murders in Iceland.
There was one twenty years ago, one
ten years prior to that and one in
1854. This is probably due to the fact
that there is no competition in that
country as there is in other parts of
the world," he continued.
According to Candidate Cole, the
people know that there are plenty
of fish in the tsea, so they never
have to worry about where their
next meal is coming from. They
also know that whereas they will
never starve to death, neither will
they ever become extremely weal-
thy. Therefore, one of their main
occupations is getting along with
rtheir neighbors.
"The Icelandic people are very po-
lite and always serve coffee and cake
whenever anyone drops in on- them.
For breakfast they usually have
bread and cheese, coffee and cake.

CRACY:
ts Good Peace Exwnple

At 10 a.m. they again have coffee and
cake. They eat fish and potatoes for
their noon meal. At 4 p.m. they
again eat coffee and cake. Dinner is
served at 8 or 9 p.m. and consists of
fish and potatoes or mutton," Can-
didate Cole added.
All the homes in the city of Reyk-
javik, the capital of Iceland, are
heated by circulating hot water
which is piped from volcanic springs
13 miles away, he said.
Candidate Cole stated that the
entire population lives along the
coastline never more than 10 or 20
miles interior as the entire inland is
barren and uninhabitable. Approxi-
mately 80,000 people live in the city
of Reykjavik and the rest of the
people are scattered around in small
fishing villages.
. "All the men in Iceland have
Tuxedos. They wear them every
time three of them get together. All
the men and the younger women
follow New York and London styles
in their dress," he said.
"The women have a national dress

which the older onIs Isti clL hO.
It consists of a fine black silk dress
trimmed in gold or silver, either a
small black or white lace cap and
long braids with gold or silver rings
around them," he explained.
Candidate Cole said that the peo-
ple are of Norwegian origin and that
Lutheranism is the state religion,
with about 99 per cent of the people
belonging to the Lutheran Church.
"All the education in Iceland is
free. Tuition is not charged even
for the university. They have a
school equivalent to our grade
school and one equivalent to our
high school and junior college com-
bined. In order to graduate from
this second school one must be able
to read, speak and write in five
different languages," he added.
The Icelandic language is that
which was spoken by the Norwegians
at the time Iceland was settled. Con-
sequently, the people can read the
old Norwegian books, but not the
modern ones, Candidate Cole con-
cluded.

"Frank Lloyd Wright's revolution-
any building is like a set of public
buildings turned upside down, start-
ing from the ground down instead of
the ground up, with the gardens and
playgrounds on top and the offices
below," commented Prof. W. O. Whit-
temore, of the School of Architecture,
yesterday about Wright's Civic Cen-
ter plan now on exhibit in the foyer
of the Architecture Building.
' "It is like a series of five shelves
built out over the lake, and it makes
people reconsider the whole purpose
of building and its relation to the
peculiarities of the site," he contin-
ued. "It is a very unusual and revo-
lutionary arrangement for a Civic
Center."
Two Terraces Built
There are two huge concrete ter-
races, the upper on a level with the
street; the lower and larger terrace
three stories below. Between the two
terraces occupying three stories are
the Civic, Auditorium and the City
and County court rooms and offices.
On the upper terrace are the park-
ing squares for cars, elevator lifts,
glass domes and fountains; and on
the second level is the main entrance,
the city and county offices and the
second balcony of the center audi-
torium and the garden area.
In order to support the tremendous
weight of the five stories and the two
terraces, triangular piers of about
35--feet on each side could be sunk
down to the hardpan strata unde
the lake.
The terraces are lighted by huge
triangular glass towers on top of the

concrete piers. The glass domes over
the auditorium and court rooms are
topped by huge fountains which
throw water 100 feet into the air,
cooling the rooms below and giving
a vibrating light effect.
Professor Whittemore explained
that in placing the building on the
lake shore bluff and by the existing
railroad tracks, Wright had to con-
sider several things; the court and
office buildings, the city offices, the
civic auditorium, the Union railroad
station, the lake front drive and the
large amount of parking space re-
quired.,
Center Built on Lake
There was no space to put all these
except beyond the edge of the bluff,
which meant one of two things.
Either Wright had to fill out over
the lake by dumping dirt into the
lake and building on piles or he could
built out over the lake on piers. He
chose the latter, using huge piers of
reinforced concrete.
"This Civic Center building shows
a trend in the remarkable possibilities
of the use of reinforced concrete to
construct any shape of building on
almost any site," Professor Whitte-
more commented. "It is also revolu-
tionary in the reversed principle and
in the form of building out over the
lake."
The exhibit will be in the foyer of
the Architecture School until May 1.
Photostat copies have been made
of the seven drawings to be used for
future references by the students.
Dr. Lemon Gives
'Talk on Orient
Hindu-Western Ideals
Compared in Discussion
Dr. William P. Lemon, pastor of the
First Presbyterian Church, said that
the Orient has anticipated a great
deal of our thinking in a speech Sun-1
day at the International Center.
Speaking on "Hindu Thought," Dr.
Lemon said "we have lost a great
deal because we have been obsessed
with the visible. Our senses have
deceived us. But India has taught
consistently that the primary part
of life is the spiritual."
In discussing the "negative nature
of reality," he said, "You can never
describe the infinite except \in nega-
tive terms." He stated that life is
not to be explained by any intellec-
tual formula and that all our induc-
tive philosophy depends on insight
and intuition. Both the paradoxicall
nature of truth and the use of insight,
he said, have been anticipated by
India.
He added that the impersonal as-
pect is fundamental in both Hindu
thought and in Buddhism, "and in
emphasizing this India has done us
a great favor."
Dr. Lemon was introduced by Miss
Mercy Cornelius of Madras, India.

Children'Art
Exhibit Opened
By Mrs. Salgado o
An exhibit that goes into every
phase of Philippine life, language and
history and which was arranged by
Mrs. Eduardo Salgado, a graduate
student of museum science at the
University, opened yesterday in the
Children's Museum, Detroit.
Aimed at the children's level, the
exhibit explains Philippine life and
culture through models, maps, pic-
tures, cut-outs and other illustrative
objects. President Alexander . G.
Ruthven and Dr. Warren E. Bow,
president of Wayne University and
superintendent of Detroit schools,
spoke at the opening last night.
Mrs. Salgado, a native of Manila,
has spent many months preparing
and collecting the materials for 25
large cases which comprise the ex-
hibit. This has been part of the
work required for an advanced course
in her field.
Hockey Cl0 To

the WAB for all women interested in
the sport.
A practice session will follow the
short organi'zational meeting, accord-
ing to Helen Masson, '45, manager
of the club. She said that womenj
are urged to come dressed appropri-
ately, in shorts, slacks or jeans and
that tennis shoes are not required.
Avukah Study Group To
Hold Discussion Tonight
The Avukah Study Group will hold
its weekly discussion on topics of
current Jewish interest at 8 p.m. to-
day in the Hillel Foundation lounge.
Eliza Dworkin will lead a discus-
sion on the question, "Must One Mi-
grate to Palestine To Be a Zionist?"

That cooperative economy can help
avert depression was pointed out by
a professor of economics at a con-
ference of the Mid-west Federation of
Campus Cooperatives, held recently
at Antioch College, Ohio. Five stu-
dent members of the Inter-Coopera-
tive Council returned Sunday from
the conference.
During a panel made up of pro-
fessors from Antioch College, a sug-
gestion was made that government
war plants be turned over to the Co-
operatives after the war. It was Pro-
fessor Corey, Department of Econ-
omics at Antioch, who pointed out
that cooperative economy can avert
depression, as was shown, he safd,
when Cooperatives expanded during
the depression, unaffected by the ec-
onomic collapse of the rest of the
world. It was later stated that heav-
ier industries should be nationalized
rather than placed in the hands of
private ownership.
Cooperative Action Necessary
Because one of the principles of the
Cooperatives is political neutrality,
one of the delegates brought up the
question of the extent of this prin-
ciple. A panel member stated that
cooperative action, union action and
political action are necessary for the
development of a stable economy.
He went on to say that full em-
ployment is vital to all and Coopera-

tives should take action on this ques-
tion. In summary, he said that Co-
operatives should take political 'ac-
tion as long as they do not run the
risk of a split within themselves.
As to the question of the use of
students in the Consumer Coopera-
tives it was stated in one lecture that
students should not expect to start
out as leaders, but must work up
through the menial jobs offered in the
field. While still in school, the speak-
er went on to say, students should try
to get classes in economics and his-
tory departments on cooperatives so
that other students could learn more
of the movement.
Representatives Visit Campus
After the panel many students went
through the dormitories, the student
book store and college buildings. Be-
tween meetings they talked with An-
tioch students and professors in or-
der to become acquainted with the
organization of the college. They
reported that the entire college is run
on a cooperative plan in which stu-
dents alternate between.studying and
working outside of school.
Toward the end of the conference
Oberlin College was chosen to be the
executive committee for the MFCC
during nect year, and delegates were
informed of a national convention
for campus Co-ops set for Oct. 6 in
Chicago. The constitution for the
MFCC was also formed and is to
be returned to individual campuses.
