Prof. Preston W. ,Slosson will be
the principal speaker of the Annual
National Convention of Sigma Rho'
Tau, engineering speech fraternity,
-peaking on the topic "America: Im-
erialist? Isolationist? International-
ist?" at 7:30 p.m. EWT ('6:30 p.m.
'WT) Saturday in Rm. 318, the
Slosson's talk, which is open to
the public, will be followed by a
short discussion period, and is a
feature of the speakers convention.
The national meeting, to be attend-
ed by representatives from Sigma
Rho Tau chapters at Wayne Uni-
versity, the University of Detroit,
and Detroit Institute of Technol-
ogy, will elect a national president
and secretary at a business meet-
ing Saturday afternoon.
Following a dinner and Slosson's
talk, the convention will witness four
annual inter-collegiate speaking con-
tests. In the first, a Hall of Fame
Contest, speakers from the colleges
represented will compete in nomi-
nating candidates for the Sigma Rho

Madame Schumann-Heink
Prof. Donal Haines of the journal-
ism department told of a concert by
Madam Schumann-Heink, "who was
always a clown anyway." The Frieze
Memorial organ, now in Hill Audit-
orium, was then in University Hall.
Its pipes were separated from the
stage by a thin wooden wall, in which
were two doors opening onto the
stage. After her concert the singer
and her accompanist could .not find
either door and, to make the best of
their confusion, Madam Heink play-
ed it up and staged a comedy of her
Another historical event was de-
scribed by Wilfred Shaw. At the
Spanish-American War, Dean Vic-
tor W. Vaughn of the medical school
was delegated to urge students to re-
main in school. "In the assembly
Dean Vaughn ended by encouraging
the men to enlist," Shaw said.
Law School Anecdote
At another lecture in which the
Law School was especially interested.
the "Laws" sat on the main floor and{
other students in the gallery. After
the meeting, the ditty, "Lits in the
high chair! Who put 'em there?
Laws! Laws!" was chanted.
When Bryan spoke here in 1902
he provoked so much enthusiastic
stamping of feet that it was feared
the hall was soon to see its last days,
and in 1905 "The Inlander" pointed
out the shaking of the floor, seats,
and gallery during a performance.
Laboratory Theatre
Extensive public use of the room
was cut down with the completion of
Hill Auditorium in 1913. The then
newly-organized Play Production
under Prof. R. D. T. Hollister of the
speech department converted the
auditorium into a laboratory theatre
and presented such plays as "The!
Merry Wives of Windsor," Masefield's
"Tragedy,' 'and "Pilars of Society."
Malcolm MacLean, now president
of Hampton Institute and a recent
speaker at commencement exercises
here, acted in "Se vant in the House"
in 1916. Prof. Lokis M. Eich of the
speech department and G. E. Dens-
more, chairman of the Department
of Speech, also appeared in some of
the Play Production performances.
Play by Betty Smith
Again in 1929 Play Production
under Prof. Valentine Windt got per-
mission from the fire department to
use the auditorium, and after clean-
ing it, the members presented a ser-
ies of free plays, among them one by
Betty Smith, now famous. author of
"A Tree Grows in Brooklyn."
The auditorium was finally con-
demned in 1930, and has been used
since as a storeroom for Prof. Fair-
banks' works and for material be-
longing to the Bureau of Appoint-

ciate Professor of Fine Arts, said,
"The importance of the under-
drawing is that it proves the exist-
ence in the author's mind of a
multiple of living images.
"Figures. arms and hands were
drawn several times, not unlike the
series of drawings made for a Walt
Disney cartoon. Unlike Disney,
however, the Indian artist expectedI
the spectator to animate the pic-
ture himself.
This effect was accomplished by
drawing the picture in two visual
perspectives, one horizontal, the oth-
er vertical
"Studied in either perspective alone
the picture appears distorted, and
the elements only assume the right
relationship to each other when the
spectator's eye is moving.
"The technique is a trick on the
part of the painter to induce the
spectator to become a participant in
the dance depicted.
* "Another even more remarkable
discovery is that the meaning of
the Krishna dance rests on a
secret inner mystery which, like
the red lines in the underdraw-
ing, is not easily perceived, and
may only be understood by an ap-
proach on the part of the spectator
with two perspectives, one physical,
the other metaphysical."
The exhibition, which closes Sat-
urday, is open to the public from 2
to 5 p.m. EWT (1 to 4 p. m. CWT)
week-days, and from 10 to noon EWT
(9 to 11 a. m. CWT), Saturday, in

Geology Camp
To Be Attended
By 50 Students
Wyoming Field Station
Begins Survey July 9
Camp Davis, the University field
camp for geology and surveying, will
be attended this summer by 50 stu-
dents, 20 from Michigan and 30 from
other schools, according to Prof. R.L.
Belknap, acting director of geologic
field work there.
The camp is located 20 miles south-
east of Jackson, Wyo., and 75 miles
south of Yellowstone National Park.
It is in the famed "Jackson Hole
Country". U.S. Highway 187, which
connects the Lincoln Highway at
Rock Springs, Wyo., with Yellow-
stone Park, passes within a mile of
the camp.
Ideal for Field Study
"Almost everything of a geological
nature which affords opportunity for
field study is found within a 50 mile
radius," Prof. Belknap said. The
summer climate is almost perfect,
he added, with an average total pre-
cipitation of only .4 inches during
the summer. The elevation is 6,113
feet above sea level.
The 50 students, representing a-
bout 15 different schools and col-
leges, will begin their work July 9.
Students from Ann Arbor will leave
here July 2 in University-owned sta-
tion wagons. They will make a broad
survey of the geological features of
the area between the Great Lakes
and the Teton Mountains.
Other Students Join Group
The group will drive through Wis-
consin, southern Minnesota, the Bad
Lands of South Dakota, the Black
Hills, the Big Horn Mountains, and
Yellowstone Park. Students from
other institutions will join the party
along the way.
Camp Davis was established orig-
inally for field work in surveying.
The present head of the camp is
Prof. Harry Bouchard, of the School
of Engineering. Other staff members
are Prof. H. L Waness of the Uni-
versity of Illinois, Prof. Henry S.
Sharp of Barnard College, and Le-
land Horberg of the Illinois Geologi-
cal Survey.
Enrollment Restricted
Students may elect thefield course
for six, eight, or ten weeks. The re-
quirement for admission is a year's
work in geology, but due to the war
emergency, enrollment is restricted
to those intending to concentrate in
geology. Courses include an intro-
ductory course in field geology for
undergraduate students, and advanc-
ed courses and special problems for
graduate students.
Besides taking the special field
courses, points of interest, such as
the great slide on the Gros Ventre
River and the beautiful lake country
along the base of the Teton Moun-
tains, are visited on week-ends. Trips
are made into regions so mountain-'
ous that even horses cannot traverse

would be amazed to discover the
large collection that is available in
the Library's Map Room.
This room, located in the south-
west corner of the building on thef
third floor holds a collection of overf
20,000 maps. Any student wishing
to use its facilities many do so bya
inquiring in the main reading room1
and the librarians will gladly help
him find the map that will best suit
his purposes. Duplicates of maps
may be drawn from the glass topped

Army Map Service'
The Map Room receives many of
the maps released by United States
government agencies and bureaus. Of1
particular, interest and value are
the maps being released by the Unit-
ed States Army Map Service. Since
the outbreak of the war, this service
has been gathering maps of areas
whose defense is vital to the Allies.
With the aid of photographers, and
the Intelligence Service, old maps
have been corrected and improved
and in some cases, new ones have
been made. Since these maps are
made for use by the military authori-
ties, they show minute details of re-
While a small percentage of them
have been released, the University
has already received over 5,000. For
security reasons, the use of these1
valuable maps is restricted to those

Maps of Coastline
Other maps distributed by the
United States Coast and Geodetic
Service in the Department of Com-
merce give detailed information on
the continental coastline of the Unit-
ed States. In addition, copies of
numerous maps released by state bu-
reaus and agencies are available in
the Map Room. When planning
canoe trips on the Huron River or
bike hikes in the vicinity, the stu-
dent may benefit by consulting the
relief maps of the Ann Arbor area.
Aside from receiving maps from
these various distributive sources,
many professors and alumni have
added to the collection. Notable
among these is Professor Emeritus
William Hobbs of the geology de-
partment whose exploring trips to
Greenland, Canada and the South
Pacific islands have brought many
interesting and valuable additions to
the Map Room.
