INSIGHT TO MODERN LIVING:

Furniture Exhibit To Open Tomorrow

* * *

S * *

By RON WATTS
Leather thongs, nylon cords and
polished plywood have transformed
the bare interior of the West Gal-
lery of Alumni Hall into an im-
pressive exhibit of modern furni-
ture.
P The exhibit, which will open at
1 p.m. tomorrow "is suggestive to
us of the environment for our
times," according to Dean Wells
Bennett, of the architecture col-
lege.
THE GALLERY is divided into
five "spaces" which cover some of
the basic components of the home.
Before the gallery-goer has
reached the spaces he is intro-
duced to the three important
guides to understanding modern
furnture - form, material and
economy. Pictorially presented,
these three essentials aid in pre-
paring the viewer for the exhibi-
tion.
The largest of the exhibits is
the living-dining space. The
modern motif running from cub-
ist paintings to issues of Flair
magazine is carried throughout
the entire space. The flooring of
the dining area is covered with
a blue-green tiling "more for the
effect of color and texture then
practicality," Prof. Jean Slusser,
director of the art museum, ex-
plained.
The floor-covering for the living
area is a fiberous-like mat. The
area is 'furnished with blonde
furniture, long 10-inch-high cof-
fee tables, chairs of bright pastel
material supported by thin iron
rods and lamps with long narrow
focusing shades.
* * *
OUTSTANDING in the kitchen-
dining space is the "Freedom Red"
gas range. Prof. Slusser revealed
that the company manufacturing
the ranges designs them in several
pststel colors.
The play space designed for
children has a hard-surface

MODERN LIVING FOR JUNIOR-The play space, a section of the modern furniture exhibit which
will open at 1 p.m. tomorrow, is designed especially for the junior members of the family. Children can
feel that they are the true product of the 20th century with a modern plastic chair, scaled down to
child-size, and a floor of large, bright-colored squares.

Kids, Adults
Hail Return
Of 'Mickey'
Another old-time Hollywood
< star is hitting the comeback trail
and will soon be giving added
meaning to college night life.
Mickey Mouse, the fabulous ro-
dent, who in some 125 films has
played scholar, lover, cowboy, ex-
plorer and medieval knight with
equal aplomb, is set for a new
series of starring roles.
ONCE THE toast of both the
child and adult world, Mickey be-
gan taking a back seat to other
members of the Walt Disney car-
toon family in 1938. That was the
year Disney made his first fea-
ture - length f a n t a s y, "Snow
White," and soon after Donald
Duck emerged as a new cartoon
character.
During the war years Mickey
became a complete casualty and
since then has made only four
films.
His retirement and only partial
emergence turned college students
to seek other movie idols. They
found them in the antics of "Tom
and Jerry," "Bugs Bunny," and
the latest cartoon star, "Near-
Sighted Mr. McGoo."
* * *
WHEN INFORMED of Mickey's
comeback plans, most University
students could only recall his role
as the socerer's apprentice in
"Fantasia."
But in the heyday of Popeye
and Betty Boop, Mickey was
their acknowledged king of the
cartoon. Over the years he has
kept his place in student hearts
through comic books a n d
watches.
Though no one expressed aban-
doned joy at the prospect of Mick-
ey's return, the consensus was to
give the versatile mouse a chance
to prove his box office appeal
anew.
And now that Gerald McBoing-
Boing is coming to town, life will
soon be complete.
Generation Tryout
A tryout meeting for all students
interested in joining the Genera-
tion business staff will be held at
4:30 p.m. tomorrow at the Student
Publications Building.
Old members of the staff are al-
so expected to attend, Bob Rose,
newly appointed business manager
said.
Dana To Give Talk
Dean Samuel Dana, of the na-
tural resources school, will ad-
dress the opening session of the
North American Wildlife Con-
ference tomorrow in Milwaukee.
The dean's subject will be "So-
cial Aspect of Wildlife Values."

floor-covering broken into huge
red, black and gray squares. The
space contains a plastic modern
chair, scaled down for the
youngsters. Modernistic paint-
ings of birds and Jonah in the
whale hang on the walls.
The modern theme of the exhi-
bition is also carred through in
the other two spaces, music-study
and garden area.
"The designers of these con-
temporary settings are suggesting

I

to us a 20th century environment,"
Dean Bennett explained. "A mo-
bile, facile society" is illustrated by
metal, glass, plywood and other
synthetics.
PROF. SLUSSER declared the
exhibition is an attempt to assign
the subject of modern furniture its
rightful place in the total scheme
of modern art and modern design.
The major items, with only
one exception, were loaned by

retail dealers of Ann Arbor or
Detroit and all are available on
the local market," he continued.
"We have set the hours of the
exhibit" at 1 to 5 and 7 to 10 p.m.
daily and 2 to 5 p.m. Sundays "so
that more students will be able to
visit the display," Prof. Slusser
said.
The objects for the exhibition
were chosen by Prof. Catherine
Heller, Prof. Aarre Laht and
Charles Pearman, all ofa thearchi-
tecture college, visiting lecturers
Francesco Della Sala and Roger
Legrand,- and Edward Hammarsk-
jold, '51A.
The exhibition will run until
April 4.

IFC Announces
Rushing Total
Of 393 Men
A total of 393 rushees for the
spring semester was announced by
the Inter-Fraternity Council yes-
terday.
The first rushing lists, publish-
ed by the IFC Feb. 17 when rush-
ing started, showed only 279
names, indicating that 114 rush-
ees have\ signed up late. Seventy-
three men had rushed in past se-
mesters and therefore did not
have to re-register.
This fall's rushing class, some-
what smaller than usual, contain-
ed not quite 700 rushees. Last
spring, an exceptionally good see
mester for the IFC, about 450
rushed.
Nevertheless, IFC officials said
they were elated about the figure.
The number is just about average
in a year where conditions are far
from normal they said.
Rushing will close today after
two weeks of hectic scrambling for
men by fraternitieswith fears of
houses emptied by the draft.
The IFC also announced that
pledge lists and 'cards must be
turned in between 8 and 9 a.m. in
the Office of Student Affairs, Ad-
ministration Building. They will
not be accepted after that time.
Meanwhile, it was revealed that
three or four more rushing viola-
tions have been detected. These
will be dealt with at the next
meeting of the Executive Council,
for which no definite date has
been set.
judge Will Rule
On Two Students
Municipal Judge Francis O'Brien
will rule tomorrow on a motion to
have Felix Mielzynski, '51, and
Paul Kluth, Grad., bound over to
Circuit Court for trial.
The students are charged with
breaking and entering a North
University Avenue drug store
Feb. 20.
Assistant Prosecutor John De-
Vine called three witnesses to as-
sert Mielzynski's implication in
the crime. Kluth, whose attorney
was ill, will probably be examined
separately this week.
