UNRAA Eases Embargo
Against Rei'f to China
UNRRA Director Fiorello H. La
Guardia tonight announced the eas-
ing of an embargo against relief ship-
ments to China.
He said in a statement that sail-
ings will be permitted "in accord-
ance with capacity of ports of desti-
nation" and that the ships "will move
as soon as the present labor disputes
make it possible."
La Guardia said relaxation of the
embargo was mae possible by "the
great improvement in the rate of dis-
tribution of supplies from China's

Jan-American Educational Founda-
4 )tter traditions at the Univer-
sity of Brussels are no homework
assigned over the weekend and no
cight or nine o'clock classes on
M(nday mornings, Dierkens de-
clared. Hie said all students leave
Brussels for the weekend on hiking
and camping trips, bicycle tours, or
travel by train to Paris or some
other place of interest.
In Belgium you would never see
anything like the long line of stu-
de,s '".j",st waiting" in the Union,
Lcekens asserted. "They would be
taking advantage of the situation to
discuss in groups some method in
science, argue the meaning of a pass-
age in literature, or in general try to
learn everything possible."
"A more serious attitude toward
learning is fostered by the Belgian
high schools and results in a more
mature university student," Dier-
kens explained. Courses at the
university are exactly prescribed by
the departments and a working
knowledge of French, Flemish,
G ermian and English is necessary.
A professor is held in a more ex-
alted pcsiton in Brussels than here,
Dierkens pointed out, and students
rise when he enters the classroom
and respectfully answer, "Yes, pro-
fessor," and "No, professor" when
Discussing social relations at the
Belgian university, Dierkens com-
mented, "If you want to meet a girl
you .just go up to her and start
talking to her. You do not wait for
the more formal introduction us-
ually required by custom here n
Ann Arbor."
Lack of race or social problems en-
ables the student center, which is for
both men and women, to be of great
value in forming the many athletic
teams, boy and girl scout groups, and
numerous singing clubs, he asserted.
Everyone at the University of Brus-
mis l wears a little black cap bordered
with the color of his department.

Prof. YIEardleys
Study Pubhslhed
Oil and gas possibilities in the Ac-
quitaine Basin in France, north of
the Pyrenees, are discussed by Prof.
Armand J. Eardley, of the geology de-
partment, in the current issue of the
"Bulletin of the American Associa-
tion of Petroleum Geologists.
Prof. Eardley studied the geology
of parts of this basin while teaching
at the United States Army's Biarritz
American University.
"If the basin were present in the
United States," Prof. Eardley asserts,
"it would have been exhaustively ex-
plored long ago."
The facility with which prospective
oil bearing structures there can be
located is pointed out in the report by
Prof. Eardley, who adds that wells
will have to be drilled only to shallow
