CENTURY OF CAMERAS:
U' Exhibit Displays History,
Modern Uses of Photography

A Century of Photography, one
of a series of exhibits circulated
by New York's Museum of Mod-
ern Art, is now on exhibition in
the Architecture building.
In a series of panels the history
of photography is discussed and
illustrated with significant photo-
graphs.
Art Versus Science
The various modern uses tc
which photography has been ap-
plied is also a part of the ex-
hibit as well as discussion as to
whether photography is "art."
Finnish Strike
Draws Action
Of Government
HELSINKI, Nov. 26-(3)-Fin
nish government members said to-
day they had decided upon "cer -
tain actions" to settle a strike by
40,000 civil servants which threat-
ened the domestic economy with
paralysis and severed almost every
communication between Finland
and the other world.
The only trains moving today'
were carrying reparations to Rus-
sia and essential foodstuffs.
The strike presented new dif-
ficulties to the country, alread
beset with the twin problems of
inflation and the meeting of rep-
arations payments under terms o
the peace treaty.
Premier Mauno Pekkala, whose
leftwing Socialist Union Parts
merged with the Communists t
form the Democratic Union,
warned the strikers that they
risked loss of their jobs by .their
action. He said the strike consti-
tuted direct action against the
parliament and government.
Parliament had offered the civil
servants a general increase of 800
marks a month (approximately
$6) but the committee represent-
inp the Government workers
turned it down.
Informants said the government
expected to maintain its tough
stand toward the strikers and
thousands of officials might be
discharged.
Political sources said such ac-
tion would have the effect of
granting the desire of the Left
Wing to purge "politically less de-
sirable elements" within the pres-
ent administration who could not
be discharged otherwise save for
breach of duty. Some said the
Communists might use the strike
to attack the Civil servants, the
mainstay of Finland's middle
class.
Pekkala heads a coalition cab-
inet which has six ministers from
the leftist Democratic Union, five
Social Democrats, five Agrarians
and one member of the Swedish
party. The Agrarians are a cen-'
trist party.
Ruling Sought
For Barmaids
LANSING1, Nov. 26--()-The
Michigan table-top licensees' Con-
gress declared today the United
States Supreme Court would be
asked to pass on a 1945 Michigan
law forbidding women to tend bar.
James Dotsch, director, said an
appeal would be taken from a
three-judge federal court decision
in Detroit that the state had the
right to adopt such a law for the
protection of women. It previous-
ly had been upheld by the State
Supreme Court and enforcement
of the act has been withheld
pending the end of litigation.
Plans for the appeal will be
made at a mass, meeting of li-
censees in Detroit Friday night,

Dotsch said.

Early Reservations Necessary

Beginning with the various
nethods of mechanical reproduc
tion used before the invention of
)hotography the exhibition con-
inues with reproductions of pho-
)graphs made with the daguer--
otype and calotype, the most
)rmitive forms of photographic
eproduction.
Recording Reality
Treating photography as a
neans of recording reality the
xhibition notes the great dif-
rence in the manner it was em-
Toyed in the 19th and 20th cen-
uries, especially in portraiture.
While 19th century photograph-
rs emphasized realism and sharp
detail in their work, 20th century
portraits take on psychological
.onnotations. The photographer
Af this period attempt to reveal
hought and feeling by the use of
-arious lighting tricks.
scientific Application
The scientific application of
yhotography is also treated, show-
ng the uses of the X-ray, the
nfra-red filter which penetrates
lust and fog and the electron
nicroscope which is able to rec-
ord minute particles which can-
iot be seen by the human eye.
erial photography is also men-
ioned as the "new perspective."
The exhibit seems to indicate
hat photography is an "art." It
ists such factors as sensitivity to
nood and texture as requirements
of an exceptional photograph and
ses two works, "Cadenza" and
"Sand Dunes" to illustrate this
point.
These works show how photog-
raphers are able to achieve a
jariety of expression and feeling
through this apparently realistic
medium.
Four Survive
In Shipwreck
Rest Believed Dead
In Alaskan Tragedy
KETCHIKAN, Alaska, Nov. 26--
A-Four shocked, chilled surviv-
ors and the bodies of three other
rew members were found today
)n the beached bow section of the
shattered Army transport Clarks-
dale Victory, and the second mate
;aid he thought the other 44 crew-
men went to the bottom in the
stern half of the broken ship.
The Coast Guard said 2nd Mate
Henry H. Wolfe of Oakland, Calif.,
informed his rescuers that no
survivors were able to get away in
lifeboats after the ship rammed
onto rocky little Hippa Island
Monday night and broke apart
in the rough sea.
The survivors were reported suf-
ering from shock as well as from
he long salt water exposure of
their feet.
Other survivors reported by the
Coast Guard rescue party were
3rd Mates William M. Rasmussen,
Modesto, Calif., and Clair E. Dris-
Coll, Los Angeles, and Seaman
Carlos Sanabria, Honduras.
The Coast Guard said two of
the bodies were identified as those
of Ken J. Bower, an assistant en-
gineer from Wolfforth, Texas, and
Peter J. Roman, Midland, Pa. The
identity of the third body was not
reported.
The 10,850-ton transport, south-
bound with cargo, hit the rocky
island, off the Northern British
Columbia coast 140 miles south-
west of here, so hard that the
bow section was high on the
beach, with its nose in the woods,
when the sea subsided today.
Discovery of the survivors came
after moderating seas allowed a
Coast Guard search party to get
aboard the battered bow for the
first time. Capt. Niels Haugen,
Coast Guard commandant, said he
was advised the men were found

in the bow section. Another report
to the Ketchikan Chronicle said
they were beside it.

Concert Here
Tuesday Marks Ninth

In their ninth performance be-
fore an Ann Arbor audience, the

f Russian liturgies, selections
:rom Russian Operas, traditional

Original Chorus
The original chorus was formed
27 years ago in a field near con-
tantinople where a troop of Rus-
sian soldiers spent a lonely eve-
'ing singing their country's folk I
gongs.
Jaroff, diminutive leader of the
ix-foot Cossack giants, selected
the best of the group and within a
few weeks was the director of a
choir of 30 men.
Cathedral Choir
They became the choir of the
Orthodox Cathedral of St. Sofia
and in the Bulgarian capital were
sent on their first tour by one of
the congregation, a concert man-
ager.
Since then, the Don Cossacks
have traveled almost a million-
and-a-half miles in Europe,
Africa, Australia and North and
South America. They have toured
the United States annually since
1939, visiting an average of 125
cities each season.
Citizenship en Masse
in 1943, the Cossacks became
American citizens en masse, after
assiduously studying the Consti-
tution in Russian and English in
daily classes for six weeks.
A limited number of tickets for
the concert Tuesday may be ob-
tained at the Choral Union offices
in the Burton Tower.
