University zoologists are "mak-

terials were deseperately scarce? I
say that if we move quickly to es-
tablish a sound and long-term
program of rebuilding Europe ...
the next five years will note an
amazing emergence of liberty and
. of strength from the ruins of war."
Two Americans recently re-
turned from a tour of Russia,
John Steinbeck and Robert Capa
of the Tribune staff, declared that
Russia could be counted among
" the the nations united in peace.
"Getting' back to New York,"E
Capa said, "we find that the coldf
war is a very hot cold war. From
behind the nylon curtains of the
Stork Club the cholera is spread-
ing in Europe. The Moscow intel-
lectuals from behind their rust-
eaten iron curtain see potential
spies and warmongers in every
student of Russian literature....
"We do not know who started
this vicious and insane game of
stupid accusations and violent
criticism. It is not important who
started it.......who is going to
"The people of Russia . . . .
wa'nt the same things our people
do-food, shelter, security and the
ability to raise and feed and edu-
cate their children in peace. And
this is really the important thing."
The mollusks sought are impor-
tant both to zoological research
and to butt on manufacturers
who will have to replace buttons
made from mollusk shells and
bone and plastic varieties. The
buttons cut from shells are an iri-
descent white and are considered
superior to manufactured types
for use on shirt fronts.
Although he is not interested in
the future of the button industry,
Prof. Henry Van der Schalie, cu-
rator of the University's molluck
collection, recently spent four
days directing the salvaging of
thousands of button's worth of
"Instead of securing button-
down collars, these mollusks will
be used to further our knowledge
of present zoological conditions,
as well as to aid us in interpreting
conditions which existed in the
past," Prof. Van der Schalie said.
The mollusks are found in shal-
low, gravel-bottom river beds that
the dam project would completely
floor-destroying their sources of
One consolation to the mollusk
loss will be the improved fishing
conditions after the dam is com-
pleted. "Anglers will probably
bring hame large catches because
fish will find the fertile bottom
abundant in food," Prof. Van der

To Hold Meeting

ested in joining the Hillel Players

in Our Town
Mr. Webb, the local editor in
"Our Town," will be portrayed
by James Lynch, when Play Pro-
duction, of the Speech Depart-
ment presents Thornton Wilder's
Pulitzer prize winning drama Nov.
5 to 8 at the Lydia Mendelssohn
Acclaimed by drama critics as
the greatest contribution to the
drama ever made by an American
writer, the novelty of the play is
that it is presented without scen-
ery. The stage manager acts as
narrator to inform the audience of
time and setting.
"Our Town" is the tale of toe
humdrum lives of the simple in-
habitants of Grover's Corner, New
Hampshire. The characters Dr.
and Mrs. Gibbs, MF. and Mrs.
Webb, and the children of both
families are introduced by the
narrator, and the physical layout
of the town is simply described.
Tickets will be placed on sale
Monday at the Lydia Mendelssohn
Box Office. A special rate for stu-
dents will be granted for the Wed-
nesday and Thursday perform-
ances. Mail orders for tickets will
be accepted until Monday.

quality shirts or nylons cost about
$5.20 and $3.80 respectively.
These figures become more
meaningful in the light of the
following facts: the cost of living
in France is more than 10 times
what it was in 1938, and the pres-
ent French minimum wage is 7,000
francs ($58) a month.
Inflation is also aggravated by
the black~ market, which deals in
nearly every scarce item that is
essential for normal living. A
black market in American and
British currency, cigarettes, cam-
eras and fountain pens, etc., flour-
ishes openly on Paris sidewalks.
Comparisons, with Britain are
inescapable. There, the govern-
ment has a plan and is carrying
it out with wide public support.
Conservatives may take issue with
certain aspects of the Labor
Party's program, but by and large
Britons are convinced that the
export program, with its resulting
austerity, is unavoidable.
France, however, is as yet too
torn by political dissension to in-
augurate the vigorous program
that the time requires.

Atop the beautiful Avenue des
Champs Elysees stands the Arch
of Triumph, symbol of a unity
which France once enjoyed. That
unity, which spurred French
armies to such distant places as
Moscow, was misguided in its revi-
olutionary fervor and eventually
involved France in humiliation
and defeat. But the fact remains
that French history shows in-
stances of remarkable national
Paris, in fact, is a city of mon-
uments to a glorious past. What!
real or figurative monument the
French will erect here in memory
of these postwar years is of mo-
ment to the entire world, not
merely to Frenchmen and idle
