selves heard last week 'on at least
two college campuses and seemedI
to be getting results.
On the University of California's
Berkeley campus, a student coin-
mittee recommended to the local
merchants association that the

Striking back at the student

Draft Racket
Revealed in
Detroit Area
DETROIT-- (P)-A draft eva-
sion racket in which youths es-
cape army service by using mari-
huana or other narcotics was dis-
closed here yesterday.
Joseph Bell, District Supervisor
of the Federal Narcotics Bureau,
told reporters that "a vicious
racket is beginning to blossom
here and in other cities."
He said the racket was designed
"for the sole purpose of beating
the draft."
Prospective soldiers, he said,
are told by sympathizers or dope
peddlers to try a few marihuana
cigarettes or shots of narcotics
and tell the army about it when
Draftees who establish a "fake
history" of dope addiction to evade
the draft can be prosecuted, and
if convicted they face a maximum
of five years imprisonment and
$10,000 in fines for false state-
ments to avoid army service.

A series of courses in family liv-
ing will be offered next semester

senior standing, according to
James H. Robertson, assistant

will be open to students of, all
schools and colleges in the Uni-
versity, Robertson said.
Courses available under the new
program will cover courtship "and
marriage relations, child develop-
ment and adjustment, .nutrition
and family health, the economics
of family life, and design and fur-
nishing of the home.
Two hours of credit will be
offered for each course and no'
prerequisite will be required.
However, the courses probably
will not satisfy the group re-
quirements of the literary col-

Professor of

BORN IN Afton, N. Y., Willey
began his college career there.
After attending Syracuse College
for three years, he decided that
"the outside world needed him,"
and set sail for South America.
After five years of wandering,
Willey returned to Syracuse where
he received his bachelors degree
in 1908. In 1909 he completed his
masters in Latin and Greek at
Taking a job as a Latin teacher,
Willey continued his studies with
graduate work at Princeton and
the University of Chicago. Then
finding a temporary interest in
law, he took courses along this
line at three Washington colleges.
He also continued studying Span-
ish and German.
It was in the capacity of a
Spanish instructor that he first
came to the University. Once here
he continued his graduate work
and in 1925 received his doctorate
degree from the University.
Prof. Willey's present courses
include Gothic German, Nor-
wegian and contemporary Scan-
dinavian literature. The Scandi-
navian literature course will be
taught by Harry Bergholz
next semester, Henry Kratz, Jr.
will teach Norwegian and Prof.
Herbert Penzl will handle the
course in Gothic German.

Social Revolt

Eighteenth Century," Sachs

Before the late 1700's, he said,
the arts were influenced by the
personality of Louis XIV, and
artists and musicians produced in
a gentle and unemotional style.
But beginning in 1760, a feeling
developed for art as an expression
of nature. "There were four new
criteria put forth," he said, "nat-
uralism, simplicity, passion and
"The feeling for naturalism,
emotionalism and the bourgeois

the results were not imitation. The

movements of human spirit. It
was dependent upon civilization
and on the minds of men."

The group was headed first by
Prof. Robert C. Angell, chairman
of the sociology department and
now by Dean Robertson.
After deciding that such a
program would meet a real stu-
dent need, the committee in-
vestigated similar programs at
other universities.
The five courses included in the
program are:
1) Marriage and Family Life
(Sociology 60), which analyzes
dating and courtship behavior as
well as married life in general.
