High Schools
Hold Debates
125 Teams Practice
For Championship
Preliminary rounds of practice
debates are now under way among
the 125 schools enrolled in the
Michigan High School Forensic
Association, according to Lawrence
W. Grosser, Association manager.
The question being debated is:
"Resolved, that the federal gov-
ernment should provide a system
of complete medical care avail-
able to all citizens at public ex-
pense."
A series of elimination tourna-
ments is scheduled to begin in
February. These tournaments will
select the finalists for the cham-
pionship debate at the University
April 25.
Awards will be presented to de-
baters and high schools participat-
ing in the elimination contest by
the University and a Detroit news-
paper.

Dean Crawford Refutes Need
For Construction Curriculum

'

The engineering college does not
plan to offer a special curriculum
in construction, Dean Ivan C.
Crawford said yesterday.
Dean Crawford disagreed with
Harold W. Richardson, executive
editor of "Construction Methods,"
who in an address before the
American Society of Civil Engi-
neers, advocated "basic college
training in practical aspects of the
construction industry, with spe-
cial emphasis on labor relations."
Construction Careers
Richardson declared that, while
a few civil engineering schools do
make an attempt to include con-
struction courses and a few more
Prof. Franklin B. Rote of the
metal processing and chemical
and metallurgical engineering de-
partments has been appointed sec-
retary of the gray iron division,
section size relationships commit-
tee of the American Foundrymen's
Association.

offer a smattering of subjects
somewhat related to the business,
"in no case is a real serious effort
made to train students for a life
construction career."
Dean Crawford pointed out,
however, that civil engineering
courses at Michigan are designed
to offer the student extensive
preparation for advanced con-
struction courses. No full curricu-
lum in construction is offered, he
said, and there are no plans for
one.
Greatest Obstacle
Richardson also charged that
the greatest obstacle in introduc-
tion courses in technical colleges
"seems to be a reluctance on the
part of civil engineering schools
to adopt new courses or to read-
just the curriculum."
Pointing out that there is a reg-
ular 'overhaul' of the engineering
college curriculum, Dean Craw-
ford said that actually there is no
demand here for the construction
curriculum suggested.

Fenuton Display
Shows U' Art
Painctis and w orkm in ceramics
done by faculty members of the
architecture college are being dis-
played this week in the Fenton
Community Center, Fenton, Mich.
The exhibit, which was largely
assembled by Karl A. Kasten, fac-
ulty member, was sent in response
to a letter requesting art work
from the University to put on dis-
play. The Extension Division of
the University cooperated with the
architecture school in sending the
material.

Fine Arts Vital to World's
Progress, Fairbanks Says

By MARION BLANCETT t
Art is a very practical profes-
sion and should be part of the
whole scheme of advancement of
a people, according to Dr. Avard
Fairbanks, recently appointed'
dean of the new School of Fine
Arts at the University of Utah.
A world-recognized sculptor.
who came to the University as a
resident artist in 1929 through a
grant by the Carnegie Foundation,
Dr. Fairbanks now holds the posi-
tion of associate professor of sculp-
ture here. When he takes up his
new position at Utah, he plans to
establish his policy of art as a
necessary, integral part of prog-
ress.
World-wide Outlook
"The new school in the heart of
the West is to have a national and
world-wide outlook," Dr. Fair-
banks said. "It is to become a
model for thoroughness of train-
ing with knowledge and truth as
the objectives of creative art, in-
stead of dilettantism, the tawdry,
and distortion." By means of ex-
panded educational opportunities
he hopes to bring the profession
of the arts to public recognition
similar to that which is now ac-
corded those of law, medicine, and
others which render significant
service to human needs and wel-
fare.
Besides appearing in exhibitions
all over the United States, Dr.
Fairbanks' work has been shown at
the Grand Salon of Paris and at
the World's Expositions since 1915.
In 1943 a committee of the Can-
adian Parliament commissioned
him to create a bust of Prime Min-
ister W. L. Mackenzie King. The

original bronze bust is located in
the Canadian Parliament Build-
ing.
During the war Dr. Fairbanks
designed a medal, "Courage,"
which Prime Minister King pre-
sented to Winston Churchill.
Automotive Consultant
He has. been a consultant on
feature design for automotive in-
dustries. He also organized the
course in industrial design given
through the Extension Division of
this University, collaborating with
the Society of Automotive Engi-
neers and the engineering college.
Dr. Fairbanks won two schol-
arships with the Art Students'
League in New York, studied in
Paris, and was awarded a Guggen-
heim Fellowship to Florence, Italy,
in 1927. He obtained his master's
and doctor's degrees from the grad-
uate school here and received the
degree of Bachelor of Fine Artยง at
Yale and Master of Fine Arts at
the University of Washington.
