fODERN SIMPLICITY:
Le Corbusier's Architecture,
Art Are Dsplayed in Exhibit

SAVES TIME AND TROUBLE:
colleges Copy_'U' Registration Systei

By JERRY JAMES
Le Corbusier is one of the most
outstanding present-day architects
in Europe and in the world, ac-
cording to Prof. Jean Paul Slusser;
director of the University art
school.
An exhibit .of Le Corbusier's
works is now on display in the
Alumni Memorial Hall Art Gal-
leries.
Although Le Corbusier, an archi-
tect, has attained international
fame for his ultra-modernistic
buildings, his talents have not been
limited to the realm of structural
design. Le Corbusier has won Eu-
ropean acclaim also, as an artist
and writer. In the present exhibit,
examples of his cubistic drawings
and reprints of his magazine arti-
cles are included with the plans
and photographs of his architec-
tural ventures.
Le Corbusier was born sixty
years ago in La Chaux-de-Fonds,
Switzerland. He began his studies
under the painter Amedee Ozen-
fant in 1918. Later he combined
his creative imagination with the
engineering skill of his cousin
Pierre Jeanneret to form a part-
nership which designed and exe-
cuted such giant and modernistic
edifices as the Salvation Army.
Building in Paris. During his as-
sociation with Jeanneret, Le Cor-
busier won first prize for his de-
sign of the Geneva League of Na-
tions buildings.
Le Corbusier led the way for
"the new spirit" in design. Simplic-
ity is the keyword of the move-
ment. Principally an architect, Le
Corbusier has combined the prin-
ciples of cubistic painting, the con-
struction of Greek and Roman .an-
tiquity, and the freedom of sim-

plicity to form a new architecture
with inseparable relationship be-
tween construction and design.
At present this noted archi-
tect is busy in Paris with new
projects for rebuilding France. The
exhibit of his work will remain in
the Alumni Memorial Hall Galler-
ies through January.
Children's Art
Exhibit Shows
Varied FTwalents
Young Artists Use
Color, Imagination
Something new, and different
in the way of art shows is being
presented in the current chil-
dren's exhibit at the Rackham
Building.
The 125 local school childre:'s
drawings and paintings in the
exhibit,, being sponsored by the
Ann Arbor Art Association, were
chosen by an out-of-town jury
from examples submitted from
all the Ann Arbor elementary and
high schools.
Imaginations Expressed
In their illustrations the young-
sters have taken full advantage
of the opportunity to express
their imaginations freely and col-
orfully. Every means of art ex-
pression has been employed in
the works selected for the ex-
hibit, which include pencil sketch-
es, charcoal drawings, and finger-
paint, watercolor and oil paint-
ings.
The exhibit is divided into
grade and age levels. There is
evidence of the child's experiences
in his bewildering environment in
the works of the nursery and kin-
dergarten division,
Sixth Graters' Work
Jack Burbridge and Juanita
White, sixth grade Jones School
students, submitted modernistic,
vivid color designs in their group.
In the junior high school di-
vision Karl Stanbach, 14, a ninth
grade Tappan student, entered an
unusual modern pencil sketch en-
titled "Snake Charmer."
In the advanced high school
section abstraction, caricature,
realism and symbolism have been
developed and perfected to a
greater degree than in the younger
divisions.
"Children are natural creators,"
Prof. Jean Paul Slusser, director
of the art school, commented af-
ter seeing the children's show.
"The exhibit is an interesting ex-.
perinment," Prof. Slusser contin-
ued, "and one for everyone to
see."

Colleges and universities all ov-
er the country have observed and
copied the registration system set
up by this University in 1930 as a
model of concentrated and effi-
cient organization.
It was Prof. Daniel L. Rich, of
the physics department, then As-
sociate Registrar, who changed
the system which forced students
to trek all over campus from
building to building to get cours-
es approved, residence checked,
pictures taken and fees paid. In-
dignant at the sight of students
waiting to pay their fees, stand-
ing in the rain in lines extending
from University Hall to State
Street, Prof. Rjich approached
Dean Effinger, of the literary col-

lege, with his complaint. The
dean exclaimed, "If you can do
better go to it. I'll make you czar
of the whole thing," and Prof.
Rich went to work.
"The biggest problem was to
convert the faculty to the idea of
congregating in one building,"
Prof. Rich said, but once the sys-
tem was tried in the literary col-
lege, the music, forestry architec-
ture and education schools joined
in, recognizing the advantage of
the new system.
Few changes have been institut-
ed in the arrangement since Prof.
Rich set it up, except for length-
ening the registration period to
three and a half days. "I think
they are still using my old bul-

letin boards." he said, "and
ably the same old numbers
Prof. Rich modestly discl
"too much credit" but he a
ted he was "pleased with the
it had worked out."

By JOAN DE CARVAJAL
"Not the amps in your pants,
but the volts in your vacuum" are
being measured by a new set of
apparatus measuring the brain's
electrical activity at the Univer-
sity fo Minnesota.
Going by the name of electro-
encephalograph, or EEG for short,
this device was used in the Univer-
sity's hospital in 1931 after it had
been developed in Germany in
1928 but was discontinued later.
During the spring and fall terms,
students in neurology and psychi-
atry will be able to take courses
in the use of this device.
