'U' Art Museum Beset'

How much spaghetti would you
pay for an old master drawing?
Spaghetti may sound like an
unusual medium of exchange,, but
some of the ways in which the
University Museum of Art acquires
its art works, are equally unortho-
It seems the Parisian art dealer
who sold a group of old master
drawings to the University Mu-
seum wanted his payment in kind.
WHAT'S MORE he stipulated
just what foods and books, and
in what quantity were to be sent
to him every month for the entire
winter in exchange for the draw-
The 'City Council believes the
University should provide for off-
street parking in its future build-
A resolution to that effect was
adopted by the Council after hear-
ing a letter from Prof. John B.
Waite of the law school.
Prof. Waite mentioned East
Quadrangle as an example of a
building which lacks parking
space. He said that University
officials should be urged to com-
ply with off-street parking re-
ings. Spaghetti and rice topped
The University business office
was not very happy about the
whole thing. "They just didn't
have the proper machinery for
this type of transaction," Prof:
Jean Paul Slusser, director of the
Museum of Art explained.
A large number of valuable
drawings and prints were
bought from a rich young man
who had fitted himself out with
a New York art gallery. When
his enthusiasm ebbed he closed
up the gallery and shipped the
pictures to his mother.
Prof. Slusser was greeted with
open arms when he arrived at her
apartment to look them over and
perhaps buy a few. He purchased
the entire group of "dust collec-
tors that were cluttering up the
closet" at his own price.
A FEW PRINTS are orderedin
the same way a farmer gets his
seeds-out of a catalogue. But
the major portion of the museum's
collection is supplied by art deal-
Ever since the Regents estab-
lished a fund 18 months ago the
museum has made an unusually
large number of purchases.
"At present we're bending our
efforts toward building up col-
lections of drawings and prints of
all periods, and, to a lesser ex-
tent, contemporary painting and
sculpture," Prof. Slusser said.

Although ionch of their work is
behind the scenes, the Council
boasts new library hours and thej
"morning coffee hour" as twoI
"finished products" of their ef-
forts. Meanwhile, work on other
schemes to satisfy the complaints
of business administration stu-
dents goes on.
ONE OF THE major projects of
the education committee of the
council is its work in combatting
the strict restrictions recently im-
posed on the number of courses
business students may take out-,j
side of the business school.
Three council members are
working with the faculty curric-
ulum committee in an effort to
expand the choice of outside
electives and thereby broaden
the outlook of the notoriously
"one-tracked business man."
Another phase of this under-
taking is that of expanding the
range of courses in business school

but last semester the council in-
itiated a course evaluation pro-'
gram. At the end of the term stu-
dents were given the opportunity
to say what they actually thought
of certain courses, and to offer
constructive suggestions. The
council hopes to extend this pro-
gram to include all courses offered
in the school.
Another commonly voiced
complaint of the students was
the haphazard changing of
courses not offered every semes-
ter, so that students often
missed out on desired subjects.
The council has now made ar-
rangements so that the school
schedules courses two years ahead
of time. Students can plan on
taking courses at designated se-
mesters with the assurance the
course will be available when the
