browbeat his subjects, but "co-

likes by flattery and steady con-
A persuasive personality is not
the only necessity for a photo-
grapher, as Eisenstaedt must often
contort himself into all kinds of
shapes and situations.
Of the lead shot in the article,
he confided: "I had to get that
bicture standing practically on
top of a cadaver."
MORE THAN 1500 pictures were
taken during the two-week stay,

The United States can learn
much in the field of discretionary
powers from a study of measures
used in England and Western Eur-

law school declared yesterday.
Lecturing on "Some Foreign Ex-

far down the road of administra-
tive law, but they have provided
for two important checks against

"The Select Committee on
Statutory Instruments is simi-

tioned in the second lecture. It
reports to the House of Com-

use of powers conferred," Stason
He pointed out that advisory
committees were also functioning
as a preventive checkagainst un-
wise administrative action.
"THE COURTS in such coun-
tries as France and Italy are in
possession of broad legal powers.
They can enforce the spirit in
which the law was written, as well
as search into the motivations of
particular administrative action,"
"In Sweden the plaintiff has
free access to all documents con-
cerning his case, within the limits
of non-security material.

But once he gets his subjects

Most of the time he keeps his

"I am the only photographer

For all the equipment he car-

cameras, and he could get them
all into a typewriter case.
