tributed each year by generous
civilians. I noticed "Elsie Dins-
more" and the "Bobbsey Twins"
series on our shelves here-imagine
one of these just-fresh-from Bou-
gainville wolves relaxing in a quiet
corner with the sexless Elsie!"
Still the next day,
"Everything here is done with a
flourish. Bufldings, however, even
the cathedral and the houses of the
local bourgeoises, are invariably
shabby and have a sort of temporary
look. "
"At the Dela Plannes, a house
which is fairly typical, I believe,
floors are of boards that look like
the kind we?'d find in haunted
houses in the States-there are
never indoor bathrooms, and if
water is available inside at all, it
is a single faucet in the wall.
"When one is around hospitals and
down here at the club, meeting hospi-
tal ships fresh from the north, she
dpesn't have many illusions left
about the nature of war. Also I will
add that the army scarcely pampers
its women, and this stretch of army
life is an e'yeopeneri in more ways
than one."

Dr. N. J. Kreidl of the Research
Laboratory of Bausch and Lomb Op-
tical Co., will speak on "Glass Re-
search Turns to Crystal Chemistry"

lra shares To Speak
Dr. Charles Brashares of the Meth-
odist Church will speak to Inter-
Guild at their regular Wednesday
lunch meeting tq be held at Lane
Hall at noon today. The public is
invited, but reservatons should be
made at Lane Hall by those planning
to attend

past two or three weeks, Prof. David
Owen of the speech department esti-
During the first week of the inva-
sion staff members will be on a 24
hour alert in case of a second emer-
gency such as the launching of a
full scale offensive by Russia, which
may be even more important to the
public than is the invasion of France,
Prof. Owen said. Staff members may
even have to eat and sleep at head -
qi tarters.
Today networks may be giving
july immediate flashtes every 15
minutes. Special news broadcasts
will tap r off to a few minites each
hour of the day as the public gives .1
irdication that it has quieted dwiI
and has tired of flashes. however,
the alert may be expected to last
about two weeks.
Prof. Owen, who has worked with
both NBC and CBS, described the
regular news room of a large network f
as a staff of about 50 specialists in
geography, history, military opinion
and general news with a crew of
"mike men" who may be specialists
in addition to being good announcers.
In the event of such an emergency as
the invasion, no extra men are
brought in, but some of those who
have been providing only background
material are called upon.
The whole staff is under the direc-
tion of a lead announcer who is in
Dr. Clde.o
To Lecture oii
Dr. Manuel Garcia Calderon of
Peru will give a lecture on "Cultural
Patterns of Peru" at 8 p. m. today
in the Kellogg Auditorium.
This is the fourth in a series of
lectures sponsored by the Latin Am-
erican Society and the International
Center to promote a better under-
standing here of the countries of
Latin America.
In discussing the lecture he will
give, Dr. Calderon said that his
"main purpose is to present some
ideas about our cultural life, our
cultural and historical background,
what Spain left us and the develop-
ment of this culture." He said he
will emphasize education, both sec-
ondary and in the universities."
A film will be shown to conclude
the lecture. It is "The Wealth of
the' Andes," a picture which was
made by the Office of the Coordi-
nator and which shows the capitol of
Peru, Lima.

charge of the mcrophone. The lead
announcer must be able to carry on
an ad lib progran with skill and
smooti mess.
bsesribing the organization of a
news broadcast program, Prof.
Owen said that last night newsmen
took the air with only one flash, a
short factual announcement of the
irnvasion. Every man wove a story
around the brief news according to
his srci:iy.: and feature material
was deveiiped.
At the same time engineers organ-
ize short wave broadcasts from dif-
ferent spots such as Cairo, Naples,
Moscow or the Dover coast. After
only two hours of oueration the whole
system is in full swing.
The present plah of broadcasting
agencies is the result 'of previous
experiences such as the report on
the march into Austria, the open-
ing of the war, the blitzkrieg and
cuverage of fronts in the last few
years. NBC and CBS turned our
"extremely dramatic" coverage on
the Anschluss, but the present in-
vasion broadcasts are not so im-
pjressive because the method is no
longer new to the public, Prof
Owen said. The American people
are by now accustomed to "sit in
on history."
Broadcasters and newscasters who
now go over with the first assault
boats are picked by lot and represent
all agencies. In the second and third
stages of the campaign more and
more broadcasters will go in to carry
coverage down to the last minute
Each network obtains the aid of all
news services which it can and in
addition maintains its own staff all
over the world. The staff, which
could be compared to that of* a news
magazine, is a hand-picked group
that knows broadcast value as well as
news value.
At their last meeting of the semes-
ter yesterday La Sociedad Hispanica
awarded two annual scholarships to
club members to the National Uni-
versity of Mexico.
The scholarships were given:to Ann
Terbrueggen, '45, and Toni Rowland,
'46, on the basis of their activity in
the Spanish club this year and their
genuine interest in the Spanish lang-
uage. They will take up their work in
Mexico City this summer.
Spanish Club activities will con-
tinue at the University this summer,
although they will not be organized
as La Sociedad Hispanica.
