Prof. Pargment To Lecture
On Works of Anatole France

Prof. Michael Pargment, of the
French department, speaking on the
social philosophy of Anatole France,
will deliver the second French lecture
State Drivers ,

For More Gas
DETROIT, Jan. 6.-- (vP) -Despite'
restrictions on wartime motoring and)
the limitation on gasoline purchases,;
many Michigan motorists are supple-
menting theirs supply by obtaining
visitors' rations across the border in
Thomas Clark, Windsor collector
of customs, said today that since
April 1, 1944, approximately 70,000
visitors' rations were issued com-
pared with 38,000 in the fiscal year
Under Dominion regulations mo-
torists visiting Canada are allowed
12 imperial gallons,-the equivalent of
about 15 American gallons, once a
year. To guard against 'repeaters the

dian authorities, by the use of half

of the series at 4:10 p.m. Tuesday in
Rm. D, Alumni Memorial Hall.
The lecture will deal with the
works from the, standpoint of
France's social plilosophy. The au-
thor has been criticized as atheistic,
pessimistic, and skeptic, and con-
demned for his bad influence on
youth; Prof. Pargment will attempt
to answer these charges, showing
how the novelist's works have en-
couraged tolerance and sympathy for
the suffering classes.
Humorous Outlook
Prof. Pargment will discuss the
author's humorous outlook, which
enabled him to see both sides of a
question, and to play with ideas as
an artist, without preaching. France
has been described as viewing every
question as "a jeweler examines a
diamond." His socialistic beliefs
arose not so much from strong eco-
nomic convictions as from his sincere
sympathy for the poor, Prof. Parg-
ment commented.
Widely Read
The famous French novelist, whose
centennial anniversary was marked
last year, was for half a century
probably the most widely-read au-
thor both in France and throughout
the world, Prof. Pargment stated.
For this reason, the writer exerted
considerable influence on the think-
ing people of his time.
