Lierary' College Conference

HOW MANY TIMES has the student sit-
ting next to you in a class, after rousing
himself from his normal stupor, explained
that he hadn't done his assignment because
he: had gotten into a discussion about
Freud, football or females the night before,
and just hadn't gotten around to his school
It is because of debacles like this that
the bull session has acquired an unsavory
reputation in some circles. The institution,
Itscritics say, produces no material re-
suIts. They waste time. But there is on

hibition of pen and ink drawings by
Richard Wilt of the College of Architecture,
and Design quietly appeared several days ago
on the walls of the south corridor of that
building. That they should be as deftly with-
drawn on Nov. 11 without having been trum-
peted to a larger audience would be a shame-
fiul. dereliction of duty: If knowledge, like
charity, best begins at home any local seeker
into. the meaning of contemporary art will
be truant to his best interests if he fails to
pay this show a visit.
Wilt studied art at Carnegie Tech, grad-
uating in 193. After the usual wartime
hiatus-as the pilot of a B-26 over Nazi
Europe-he, studied mural techniques at
the New Scho'ol for Social Research and
taught at the University of West Virginia,
coming to Michigan in 1947. Numerous
prizes in regional shows, including four
consecutive awards in annuals of the As-
sociated Artists of Pittsburgh; testify to
his emerging talent.
His ability is matched by the genuine hu-
mility that compels him to describe the
awards as "on my level, not on a national
level." The implied recognition of a present
leVel of development must not be construed
as acceptance of ceiling limitations, how-
ever, for the artist is sure of his direction.
Articulate, cerebral in his approach, he drives
himself on a day and night schedule of al-
ternate painting and drawing, impelled only
by a sincere love of' creatlve work-as con-
trasted with the typical American hunger
for success. He will not force his reputation
but is content, with patience, to let the fu-
ture judge his merits as he continues to de-
EnIjoying a natural facility with drawing,
he uses it as a means of "getting into a pic-
ture," organizing his concept for ultimate
expression in oil. Yet the drawings can stand
alone as full statements of a theme. Basial-
ly realistic, with a conpletely recognizable
"subject," his art is carefully devised. Dis-
tortion and elimination are employed with
trained sureness to validate a sound empha-
sis on design. These are the antithesis of the
amorphous, the confused, the accidental ele-
mients that typify the work of some of the
sensational short-cut experts who create au-
tomaticaly, from the subconscious.
Uncomplicated, tenuous, often dotted,
lines, counterpointed with soft, gray tones of
finely-interwoven hatching, define the over-
lapping planes which substitute formally for
any academic system of modelling. Wilt is
a superb draftsman, a fact which, in con-
junction with a highly-developed decorative
sense, leads to one of his most distinctive
characteristics. Delightful linear patterns
nodify the essential severity of his forms.
Such are the stylized swirls of infant hair,
the meticulous insistence of flower petals,
the jewels of hieratic diadems.

Whimsy appeals in the sparing, yet tell-
ing, line that caricatures the flutist and in
the kinetic frenzy of the drummer. A
more penetrating humor lurks just below
the surface of many. One of the most
pleasing is the recent drawing of the little
girls clinging to the wrought iron fence, in
which imagination has created enchanting
fantasy in the interplay of repeated ovoid
forms-heads, bodies, and apertures of the
grill. Many solemn variations of themes
of infancy are Sao more than the "diary"
of the artist's recent personal experience
of paternity. But always there are people:
their existence recorded with sympathy
and understanding-=rather than their
problems in terms of "social protest." No-
where is felt' the unhealthy intrusion of
political ideology.
Strong, clean line gains a striking boldness
from the large scale and augments the overt
geometry, of handsome individual interpre-
tations of limited, but deeply-felt, aspects ofj
life. (Note: these drawings are for sale-and
not beyond 'the means of the student col-

THOSE WHO are trying to stop the "world
peace congress" from meeting in Shef-
field in November should stop to think
again. It is the Communists, not the British
Government, who are taking a grave risk by
staging such proceedings in level-headed
Yorkshire and at. the heart of a strike-free

campus a group which contradicts the
anti-bull sessioners. It is the Literary
College Conference.
Now this isn't to say that the students
backing the Conference hit on their group
as a way of making the bull session pay off
materially. The Conference is now what it
always has been: an attempt by a group of
students interested in letting the administra-
tors of the literary college know what they
think of the way things are run in the col-
But it still operates like a bull session,
with all the students present throwing their
ideas in on the subjects under discussion.
The material results come 'about indirectly.
Several faculty members-from Dean Kenis-
ton on down-attend the meetings to answer
and to listen: they answer any questions
which come up in the discussion that, be-
cause of their positions they are best quali-
fied to deal with; they listen to get the ideas
of the lit student, and when later the time
comes for policy making, it is hoped that
they remember. In at least one case the
words of the Conference have been remem-
bered. Several suggestions put forth in it
were incorporated into last year's faculty
The Conference was started in 1944 but
it. was only last year that things really
got rolling. As a result of last year's
spadework, the nucleus from last year's
conference has decided to tackle two
specific problems this year: the improve-
ment of 1. the curriculum and 2. student-
faculty relationships.
Just one thing though. Like oui; football
team, the conference has been hard hit by
graduation. It needs new, interested blood. It
just so happens they're having a meeting to-
night at 7:30 in the League to start work on
their two problems. If you're a lit student in-
terested in either your' relations with the
faculty or the curriculum, it might be worth
your while to drop in.

audience to the simplicity of finding a
solution to the problem of wars.
' Even though many considered it a
tasteless act to trick people into reading
of the revolutionary movement by begin-

the atomic era, the Socialist-Labor Party
contributed to the evening of logic in its

Their solution to the world's ills (which
David Lilienthal so thoughtlessly forgot to
express) sounds reasonably workable. "This
rotten'capitalistic system must be destroyed
and replaced with a social order of peace,
abundance and production for use."
How one destroys the capitalistic system
in a peaceful manner is left to the reader's
imagination as are the obvious faults in-

was useless. For the first time the work-

WasWhington Merry -Go-Round

HARRISBURG, Pa.-The state of Penn-
sylvania, which has sent some freak Sen-
ators to Washington in the past, this year
can't very well go wrong. It has two good
men to pick from: Gov. James Duff, Re-
publican; and Sen. F'rancis Myers, Demo-
I.owever, if the tremendous swing which
nominated Duff last May continues, he will.
be the new Senator in Washington next
This--if it happens-will mark something
more than just a new Senator from Penn-
sylvania. For Duff represents a new philoso-
phy 'inside the Republican party which it
needs more of if it is ever going to recapture
the White House. He also is a man who is
sure to be considered a Presidential candi-
date if he wins on November 7.
When Duff was nominated to the Senate
last spring he received letters from ajl over
the country stating: "Thank God for a
change in the Republican Leadership. We're
Democrats, but we would vote Republican,
if the Republicans offered something new."
What they referred to is the fact that
Duff has not tried to tear down all the New
Deal legislation FDR built up. Nor has he
based his campaign on the Senator Mc-
Carthy bogey that Communists lurk under
State Department desks. Instead, he has
followed a policy not unlike that.of Governor
Warren of California of taking the best of
the New Deal program and adding some
features of his own-cleaning up one of the
chief rivers of his state, reforming the in-
At The Michigan .
Holloway, Hermione Baddeley and Mar-
garet Rutherford.
THIS IS ANOTHER blue-ribbon British
comedy in the tradition of Kind Hearts
and Coronets and Tight Little Island. If
anything, it is somewhat subtler than those
two fine imports.
Thenaction revolves around the hilarious
consequences which result from the un-
earthing of an ancient royal charter grant-
ing an area of London to the Duke of Bur-
gundy. Because of the grant's undoubted
authenticity, Pimlico takes on all the aspects
of foreign territory and its few inhabitants
are declared aliens. This creates a crisis in
Whitehall and the explosive issue is passed
from department to department in a futile
attempt to cope with it.
As you can well imagine, the film exploits
to the utmost the often ludicrous incongrui-
ties of diplomatic action. Obviously, tte
situation calls for cool heads and a little
common sense, but rigid protocol is studious-
ly observed and the matter degenerates into
an international incident.
Stanley Holloway is excellent as the cock-
ney prime minister of Burgundy while
Hermione Baddeley (well remembered as
the over-protective mother in the kite se-
quence from Quartet) occupies much of

sane asylums, improving the schools, and
Sputting the Pennsylvania Manufacturers As-
sociation in its place.
For years, Pennsylvania was ruled by the
barons of coal, steel, gas, and oil. What they
wanted, they largely got. And the normal
GOP Governor in Harrisburg usually did
their bidling. Governor Duff, however, re-
versed this, and in so doing won the undying.
enmity of that insatiable disciple of the high
tariff, Joe Grundy, plus all his fellow manu-
facturers. They did their best to defeat Duff
at the primaries and, believe it or not, they
are now conspiring with.a Democrat, Sena-
tor Myers, to try to defeat Duff in Novem-

Jim Duff is big, barrel-chested, redheaded,
rides horseback at the age of 67 two or three
times a week, works late hours, reads till one
or two a.m., and drinks water incessantly.
If it wasn't for his age he would be excellent
Presidential timber, though in these days,
with MacArthur 71, General Marshall 70,
and Harry Truman one year younger than
Duff, he can't be counted out.
Duff inherited some of his crusading bel-
ligerency from his father, a. Presbyterian
minister in Westmoreland county, near Car-
negie. His. father supported five children on
an income of $3,700, and sent all of them
to college. When Jim Duff was a boy, he
remembers an oil con'pany drilling wells
opposite his father's farm and offering to
buy the Duff place-for a song. His father
Instead, he drilled eight wells on his own
land. But when he could not get the oil
company to buy his gas, the elder' Duff
simply uncorked a well, let the gas gush out,
thus lowering the pressure in the wells across
the line.
After that the oil company came to terms.
That was when Jim Duff got his first
taste of bucking big business, and he has
been bucking the barons most of his life.
His next brush came when he was Attorney
General of Pennsylvania and closed the
legal loopp'oles permitting dumping in Penn-
sylvania rivers. Later, as Governor, he start-
ed the almost revolutionary project of dredg-
ing out the Schuylkill River.
There is an interesting contrast between
the life of Jim Duff and that of Joe Hanley,
Lieutenant Governor of New York. When
Duff was urged to run for Governor, he
also pled lack of funds. But a friend argued:
"You can get two retainers for $20,000 and
$15,000 that will supplement your state sal-
The friend mentioned two Pennsylvania
utility companies for whom Duff had worked
in the past. Unlike Hanley, however, Duff
"Not me. When I work for my State or
my Government, I don't take money from an
outside source."
After conferring with Mrs. Duff, however,
they decided to curtail their domestic bud-
get and thus run'for office.

SL Funds .
To the Editors:
ON OCTOBER 15, 1"8, the Stu-
dent Legislature, with strongi
support of The Daily, conducted
its .tag drive during which $1,078
was collected for the University
of the Philippines.
On December 2, 1948, Jim
Brown, now Managing Editor of
the Daily and writer of yesterday's
article "exposing" the supposed
"misuse" of funds by the Student
Legislature, was elected to that
same Student Legislature which,
according to Mr. Brown, "went
merrily 'on its way spending the
funds which had been generously
donated to the Philippine univer-
sity by the entire campus."
Editor Brown points out that
any SL member at that time had
access to the accounts wherein the
Philippine funds were recorded-;
one-time SL member Brown there-;
fore had access to the books, and
must share in any guilt which
may attach to the SL as a whole.
This letter is not intended as
a denunciation of SL member Jim
Brown; as Editor Brown points
out, there was considerable doubt;
at the time whether the funds
would be properly spent in the
Philippines. It was not until re-
cently that clearly responsible
groups were identified. Thus the
funds could not have been sent
much before the present-any de-
lay caused by the temporary over-
sight is, therefore, in effect im-
Certainly this mix-up, thoug
not to be casually shrugged off,
does not merit the artificially sen-
sational front-page "revelation"
given it by Editor Brown. At any
rate, SL member Brown and to-
day's Editor Brown being indis-
tinguishable. there may be justice
in saying that people who live in
glass houses should dress in the

SL Funds ...
To the Editor:
IN OPENING I wish to commend
Mr. Brown and The Daily for
its 'prompt action in revealing the
S.L. "so called" misuse of funds
-two years:
Further, I 'would like to thank
Mr Brown for being such a cap-
able and consciencious snember of
the legislature the semester 'ol-
lowing the misuse of funds.
I challenge him to produce min-
utes of any S.L. meeting during
his term, in which, he actively
'campaigned for the immediate
sending of the money to the JAil-
ippines and if he chooses to hide
behind the cloak of ignorance, then
I challenge him as a poor legis-
lator, since the Philippine Drive
should not have been that remote
in his memory as a student leader.
. I feel that the Legislature has
been done a grave injustice at a
time when it deserves the whoe
hearted support of every student
on campus. The legislature in the
past two years has done a :om-
mendable job in leading a hetero-
geneous student population. It
seems strange that men like Mr.
Brown can forget the worthwhile
things that the Legislature has

done, for the sake of writing, what
a newspaper man would call a
"Good" article.
In closing I would repeat that
the explanation of the blunder
falls on the shoulders of the for-
mer legislature member J i m
Brown. His lack of interest and
inertness are as much the cause of
such mistakes as anyone's. Further
let me remind every student that
elections are in the near future,
let's see that legislature is stocked
with good, capable material-not

Student Directory...
To the Editor:
IT IS unfortunate that space in
this column must be devoted to
answering letters written by in-
dividuals who haven't the fore-
sight to check their facts before
they start making noise. However,
since Keith Beers has placed him-
self in that position by his letter
in Tuesday's issue, I feel that an
answer is in order so that his ig-
norance may not be foisted upon
Mr. Beers, please note the fol-
lowing FACTS:

1949-sold on Oct. 28

The directories were available
for sale this year on the 28th, but
I think that even the most im-
practical will concede that Satur-
day is a poor day for any campus
sale. Tuesday was chosen to take
advantage of publicity afforded by
the Daily.
There were 8% (not 10%) fewer
names this year, but on the other
hand there were 9% more books
printed this year in an effort to
make a book available to all who
desired one. These factors tend to
cancel each other so that I hardly
feel you are justified in expecting
that the book should come out
earlier because of the drop in en-
