Army Denies Wild Disorder
By U.S. Forces in Germany
WASHINGTON, Dec. 3-(A)-
Charges of. wild immorality and
other excesses by American forces
in occupied Germany were made
public tonight, and the War De-
partment swiftly replied "hear-
say" and "gossip."
President Truman, in response
to questions at a news conference,
took the position that a congres-
sional investigation of the mili-

African Negro sculpture and
examples of the prints of George
Rouault, contemporary French ar-
tist, are featured in a joint art
exhibit opening at the University
Museum of Art today.
Art critics assert that African
sculpture holds an indisputable
place today among the art tradi-
tions of the world, Prof. Jean P.
Slusser, acting director of the
art school, explained.
A group of French artists work-
ing in Paris just before the first
World War artistically discovered
African Negro sculpture. Their
studies of its forms led to the
first experiments in cubism.. A
form of expression based on Negro
stylizations was developed by
Braque, Picasso, Gris and other
Both original and photographic
examples of the Negro art are be-
ing shown in the December exhib-
it. These selections were chosen
from the Museum of the Univer-
sity of Pennsylvania. The local

housing survey to determine theI

gregation in University League
Situation Here "Can Be Better"1
Summing up the situation in
the University, Whitsitt said "it is
quite good but it can be better."
He pointed out that housing con-
ditions for Negro women are much
more acute than for white women
since only one League House-
Britt House-accommodates Ne-
ro women. le also noted that
currently there are only two Ne-
groes, both of them teaching fel-
lows, on 'he University faculty.
Lyman Lytgers, president of the
Student Religious Association, re-
ported SRA's method of action as
"This is achieved by inter-group
contacts ani-d cooperation to com-
bat discrimination by exposing un-
democratic practices." he said.
According to Bob Slaff, AVC
public relations chairman, both
the camp ii, and Willow Village
chapters blieve that "the educa-
tional system today is not entirely.
eliminating prejudices and, conse-
quently, one of our goals is con-
structive criticism of the curricu-
lum to stimulate liberalization of
the educational process.''
Campus Cooperatives .
In addition, there are five co-
operatives on campus whose unit-
ed comment on discrimination was
summed up by Fred Schelkun,
president of Michigan Co-op:
"We do not even recognize the
term because it does not enter our
minds. Co-ops practice the con-
cepts of democracy, and with such
concepts we recognize the equality
of all men."
In a survey of all cooperatives to
ascertain the number of Negro
residents, neither Schelkun nor
Barbara Alleman, manager of
Stevens co-op could name off-
hand the number of Negroes in
their houses. But after an in-
quiry they reported that of a to-
tal of 102 residents, 17 were Ne-
groes. The housemother and the
house president of Osterweil Co-op
and the housemother of Lester
Co-op are Negroes.

Germany Should Retain Art,
Cultural Treasures --Parkhurst
If Germany is expected to re-
build, she must be allowed to re-
turn her historical art and cul-
tural treasures, Charles P. Park-
hurst, Jr., maintained in a lecture
yesterday sponsored by the fine
Parkhurst, curator of the Al-
bright Art Gallery in Buffalo, fur-
ther declared that today 80 per
cent of the thousands of works
of art which have been looted by
the Nazis have been returned to
A member of the Division of
Monuments, Fine Ares, and Arch-
ives of SHAEF in Germany during
the wvar, Parkhurst asserted that
the officers of this group believed
that the significance of their task
lay in its effect on the spirit of
those nations whose treasures had
been stolen. "The works of art
constituted the substance of a
tradition that made up the best
of each civilization," he said.
Describing the systematic five-
year Nazis looting program, which
operated in France, the Low
Countries, Poland, Italy, Czecho-
slovakia and Austria, he men-
