Preparatory to its second ap-

Monday, Gargoyle announced
that, in keeping with the local fad
of testing publications materials
and personnel, it would hold its
own test at the Michigan Union at
12:31 a.m Saturday, December 13.
At that time the business man-

Remer Urges
Strong World
TradeGroup
Says Economic Fate
Is at Stake in Havana
By JAKE HURWITZ
The fate of postwar economic
reconstruction and free world
trade hangs in the balance at the
International Trade Organization
conference currently taking place
in Havana, according to Prof. C.
F. Remer of the economics depart-
ment.
Prof. Remer said yesterday that
unless the iTO is successful, the
economic future of the United
States and the rest of the world is
not bright.
Need Free Trade
Without multilateral trade and
a satisfactory medium of ex-
change to pay for imports, the
specialization necessary for world
prosperity would be impossible,
Prof. Remer explained.
'ut the main arguments now
arising at the Havana meeting of
the ITO, where a charter is being
drafted, concern the development
of countries not yet industrialized,
Rrof. Remer pointed out. These
nations are seeking to impose
trade restrictions for the benefits
of their own infant industries
Without prior approval by member
nations, which the proposed char-
ter requires, he said.
Attacks U. S.
This desire for protection is so
intense that it has brought a
powerful attack on U. S. leader-
ship and other industrial powers
by Dr. Diego Molinari of Argen-
tina, Prof. Remer emphasized.
Restrictions were used to bol-
ster a nation's industry during the
depression of the '30s, but now
they stand in the way of develop-
ment, he pointed out.
A limited program of restriction
for the sake of development might
not be objectionable, but an un-
ending wall of restrictive policies
would defeat the purpose of the
ITO and might lead to prepara-
tion for war, Prof. Remer conclud-
ed.

tently operated without a quorum
-often passing or killing impor-
tant motions, with less than half
the members present.
3. In order to further minimize
election frauds; suggestions that
plans for elections be drawn up
at least three weeks before elec-
tion day have been made. Peti-
tions should be in the hands of
the Men's Judiciary Council for a
time long enough for the conduct
of a thorough investigation. In
yesterday's election, the Council
held the petitions for one day.
Polling Booth Proctors
Moreover, students who man
the polling booths should be se-
lected on the basis of certain qul-

ifications not merely because they
"volunteerod." Ballot counters, too,
should be carefully chosen.
Finally, some critics would see
the Legislature elected on a class
basis-to increase actual represen-
tation and to provide a working
basis for the "inheritance" of
student government ideals, as ad-
vocated by Dean Erich A. Walter.
Better Representation
Advocates of the scheme also
claim that by this method, great-
er, true representation could be
attained, with a smaller, more
wieldy group than the present
Legislature. The resultant shorter
ballot would also provide oppor-
tunity for more intelligent voting.
Whether or not they accept the
suggestions, the new Legislature
must continue the streamlining
plan already set in motion, or
must die the natural, and, unfor-
tunately usual death of student
government.

Gargoyle's business manager,
Miss Hodes, will be accompanied
in descent by a small but efficient
parachute, while Miss Dippel, ad-
vertising manager, is expected to
be accompanied by shrill screams
from the audience. The whole af-

she fails, the Garg staff will go
into deep mourning until Monday,
December 15, at which time they
will present to the campus the
Christmas Gargoyle in memoriam.
Mixed Reaction
The announcement of Gar-
goyle's appearance on campus
Monday has brought mixed reac-
tions from the general populace.
"I shall return it."-D. Mac Ar-
thur, ROTC.
"I do not choose to buy."--C.
Coolidge, political science.
"If approached, I will not buy.
If given one, I will not read it."-
W. T. Sherman, veteran.
"Give no quarter."-H. L. Nel-
son, Oxford exchange student.
"This fearful inhuman weapon."
-L. P. Groves, military science.

Ruthven Will Talk
At this session President Alex-
ander G. Ruthven will welcome
the delegates. Dr. Esson M. Gale,
director of the International Cen-
ter, and Leela Desai of the Uni-
versity Hindustan Association will
also speak.
A symposium on "General Sci-
entific Education for the Indian
Masses," will include Dr. G. B.
Lal, scientific editor for the
American Magazine, and Dr. Ko-
katnur, of New York as speakers.,
Dr. Kokatnur is noted as one of
the foremost foreign scientists
now working in the United States.
Tea for Ambassador
President and Mrs. Ruthven
will give a tea honoring the In-
dian Ambassador from 4 to 6 p.m.
Dec. 22. Other plans for the con-

ing Indian dances and the show-
ing of a full length Indian film.
Over 1,000 Indian students now
studying in American colleges are
members of the Association, ac-
cording to Miss Desai. One of the
purposes of the convention is to
prepare a directory with the names
and address of these students, she
said.

BUILDING ERUPTS FIERY BLAST-Like a giant flame thrower, this building at Spring Lake
Park, near St. Paul, Minn., belches fiery blast as drums of gasoline and oil cxlode during a recent
fire. Ten persons fled safely from the structure which housed a garage, grocery and dwelling. Donald
Saugstad of Woodville, Wis., a passerby, took this picture at the instant of the blast.

VARIED FILM MENU:
Art Cinema League To Offer
Rare Fare for Movie-Goers

COLLEGE ROUND-UP:
Ban on Eisler Talk Arouses
Strong Protest at Wisconsin

The Art Cinema League begins
a busy week today with three
films slated for the next seven
days.
"Wellsian" concepts of life in
the 21st century are featured in
"Things to Come," a movie adapt-
ed- from the book by H. G. Wells,
which begins its three-day run at
8:30 p.m. today in Lydia' Men-
delssohn Theatre.
Starring Raymond Massey and
Sir Cedric Hardwicke, the film
begins with a portrayal of civiliza-
tion's near destruction in a war
of machines, germs and high pow-
ered explosives.
Triumph of Justice
The ultimate triumph of jpstice
results in the reconstruction of
the world into a pleasant, scien-
tific Utopia, according to Wells'
story.
The purpose of the Art Cinema
League in revifing the film, which
was produced in 1936, is to give
people an idea of what may be
expected fromaanother war, ac-
cording to Hal Lester, publicity
chairman.
Tickets may be purchased after
2 p.m. today at the theatre box
office.
Crime Film
"M" a crime film starringPeter
Lorre, will be shown '6 Art
Cinema League at 3 and 8:30 p.m.
Sunday in Lydia Mendlessohn
Theatre.
The story of a pathological mur-
derer, "M" is the screen fersion of
the crime life of "Jack the Rip-
per," who terrorized London at
the turn of the century.
Produced by Fritz Lang and fea-
turing an internatiopal cast, the
picture has been heralded as "a
film to be respected and not soon
to be forgotten" by the New York
World Telegram.
Spanish Film
Tickets may be purchased af-
ter 2 p.m. at the theatre box of-,
fice.
"La Barracca," a Spanish film

drawn from the pages of the novel
by Vincente Blasco-Ibanez, will be
shown at 8:30 p.m. Monday and
Tuesday in Lydia Mendelssohn
Theatre.
Blasco-Ibanez has already had
several of his books adapted for
the screen, including "Blood and
Sand," and "The Four Horsemen
of the Apoclypse," which brought
silent actor Rudolph Valentino to
stardom.
Most of Blasco-Ibanez' worksl
deal with social problems, some
so provokingly that he was forced
to flee his native Spain.
Economic Conflict
"La Barracca" deals with the
conflict between the poor peas-
ants of Valencia and the land-
lords who kept them in virtual
slavery. Typical of Ibanez, it is
considered by many as his best
work.
Included iti the cast of Spanish
stars are Domingo Soler and Anita
Blanch. '
Tickets will go on sale at 2 p.m.
Monday, at the Lydia Mendelssohn
box office. Admission is free to
members of La Sociedad Hispan-
ica, sponsors of the movie.

Excerpts fromn
WiWaiace Talks
To Be Printed
Plans for distribution of a
pamphlet containing excerpts from
several speeches by Henry Wal-
lace were announced yesterday by
Max Dean, temporary chairman
of the Wallace Progressives.
Dean said that the initial at-
tempt of the group to develop a
greater interest in the Wallace
program had proven very success-
ful.
Further action will include the
formation of small groups, which
will use the Wallace speeches as
a starting point to develop a
fuller program.
Although the chapter here is
the first one to be established in
Michigan, similar groups have
been organized in California, Chi-
cago, New England, and other
parts of the country, Dean said.
IC Head To Confer
Dr. Essen M. Gale, director of
the International Center, is meet-
ing with the Committee on Per-
sonnel Service of Syracuse Uni-
versity today to discuss problems
involved in the counseling of for-
eign students.

By BESS HAYES
Speciments of fine bindings
from the Rare Book Room are
currently on exhibit in the main
lobby of the General Library.
Bindings displaying workman-
ship from the 15th century manu-
script-bound books to the mod-
ern myrtle-wood-bound New Tes-
tament were arranged by Miss
Ella H. Hymans, curator of rare
books.
Shakespeare Folio
One of the most outstanding
books in the cases is the Second
Shakespeare Folio, 1632, bound in
calf and tooled with the coat of
arms of Charles I. This volume
was repaired and rebacked by Mr.
W. C. Hollands, superintendent
emeritus of the University Bind-
cry.
Colonial America's bookmaking
skill is exhibited by an English
Bible published in Worchester,
Mass., by Isaiah Thomas in 1797.
Ranging from paper covered
wooden boards to fine vellum, the
exhibit indicates the scope of rare
first editions. According to Miss
Hymans, books in their original
bindings are preferred but when
necessary to preserve them, fine
bindings are used.
Tacitus Works
Also displaying the wide range
of content and workmanship are
the First Complete Editions of the
Works of Tacitus. They were
printed in Rome in 1515, bound
in Levant Morocco, of antique fin-
ish with gold and blind tooling
Gordillo To Talk
On, Mexican Music
In celebration of the famous
Mexican fiesta of the Virgin of
Guadalupe, which takes place in
that country today, Prof. Roberto
Gordillo, of Mexico, will lecture on
Mexican music at 8 p.m. today in
the Rackham Amphitheatre.
Prof. Gordillo now engaged in
special library work at the Uni-
versity, will give special attention
in his lecture to the marimba and
its players, the Mariachis, and
other groups of pi;ofessional sing-
ers.
He will be assisted with songs
and music by Geraldine Rose, of
the School of Music, and Dr. Al-
berto Villalon.
The lecture, which is being
sponsored by the Latin American
Society, is open to the public.

by Sangorski and Sutcliffe. A
German translation of Pliny's Na-
tural History, 1565, bound in
tooled pigskin signed "G. V." dated
1570 is also featured.
Gold Lettering
Another item is a specimen of
the first gold lettering of author
and title on cloth, which super-
seded the paper labels. The first
two of the seventeen volume edi-
tions of Lord Byron's Works pub-
lished by J. Murray, London, 1835-
36 were issued with paper dlabels.
Volume three, on exhibit, and fol-
lowing volumes, were stamped
with gold.
From the richly decorated vol-
umes of the French binders to the
excellent workmanship and qual-
ity of the English bindings and
from the first edition of Robinson
Crusoe to the first edition of Dry-
den, the display is attractive and
interesting.
French Crisis
Tension Rises,
Arnesen Says

ance. Everyone waits. There is no
excuse for action one way or the
other yet.
A walk around the neighborhood
revealed' little groups of troops
standing in the dark and damp
of the French night. There is a
heavy mist, surprising to a for-
eigner in view of the cold. The
damp seems to penetrate every-
thing. A military contingent is
posted at the University City to
protect the foreigners.
An Army truck sits in front of
the "International House" (built
by John D. Rockefeller), and
there is a large patrol of troops
before the Argentine Pavillion,
where a Communist student was
arrested this afternoon.
The cafeteria for students at
the International House, closed
this past week by a strike of the
"technical" (electricians, furnace
operators) personnel, opened this
noon on the strength of help
from substitute army workers. All
is still relatively quiet, but police
are to be seen constantly at the
street telephones, and in every
conversation the word "revolution"
can be overheard.

A move by officials at theUni-
versity of Wisconsin to ban the
appearance of Gerhart Eisler be-
fore a student group has aroused
a storm of controversy. The Am-
erican Youth for Democracy, a
student group, wants to sponsor
Eisler's talk. But the University
officials say the moral implica-
tions involving sponsorship of a
man of Eisler's record forced
them to take adverse action on
the request. (Eisler is under sent-
ence in a federal court for con-
tempt of Congress and has been
accused by the FBI of leading the
subversive Communist movement
in the United States.) However,
the AYD has charged that the re-
fusal to permit Eisler's appear-
ance on the campus is a violation
of academic freedom and refutes
the democratic spirit.
A poll taken at Northwestern
University reveals that most of
the students do not approve of
actions taken by their student
government. Sponsored by the
student newspaper, the poll show-
ed that only one-fourth of the
students were in favor of the ac-
tions taken by the campus govern-
ment. And another two-thirds
stated they did not understand
how the student governing body
functions.
Students at Ohio State Uni-
versity are mobilizing to halt a
-WANTED-

proposed rent decontrol in Col-
umbus. The local rent advisory
board has slated an open hearing
on the question for early next
month, similar to the recent hear-
ing held here. Student groups are
already making plans to testify
in favor of continued rent controls
at the hearing.
Failure of a turbine at the Uni-
versity of Indiana has threatened
to cause temporary suspension of
classes. The largest of the three
turbines failed, greatly reducing
the generating capacity of the
campus electric plant. The power
failure forced a dim out of the
entire university with only lights
in the housing units and library
continuing to burn. And even
these may be cut off unless the
turbine is put back into shape
quickly.
