Bird Paintings Featured
At Rackham Art Exhibit
By AUDREY MURPHY
Bird lovers can observe their
favorites on canvas as well as on
the wing this week.
This still life bird watching is
taking place at the Rackham Gal-
leries, where an exhibit of Arctic
and United States birds is on dis-
FEATURE ATTRACTION of
the : exhibit is the work of Prof.
George M. Sutton of the zoology
department, who is noted for his
outstanding bird paintings.
A series of Arctic paintings,
it is one of few ever made di-
rectly on the spot in the North-
"Because of the arctic climate,
I was forced to paint the birds
from the interior of a Hudson Bay
trading post," he revealed.
"THE EXACT lighting effect is
essential when painting birds," re-
marked Prof. Sutton. "Two or
three days are required to make
one painting and- somtetimes it is
necessary to continue the work
for two or thee weeks, in order to
have identical lighting each time."
"I like to sketch the bird as
it flies through the slky before
making the actual painting," he
When this is done Prof. Sutton
usually captures his models by the
use of nets, occasionally employ-
ing a trap for the purpose. He ac-
tually holds the specimens in his
hand while painting them. (

painting since the age of nine, is

"The state is in danger of los-
ing control of national life be-
cause of the increasing strength
of special interests," Prof. Mar-
shall Knappen of the political sci-
ence department, declared last
Speaking before, an Economic
club meeting, Prof. Knappen ex-
plained that in the late 1920's and
1930's the state acted as a police-
man to put down the special in-
terests which rose against the
"Now, that agency which was
supposed to police the special in-
terests is being controlled by those
very interests," he said.

PROF. KNAPPEN pointed out
that the weakness is the state re-
sulting from this special interest
control is particularly apparent in
the field of foreign affairs.
"The Communist order is out-
mobilizing the west in ap-
preaching its maximum power
potential with the resources at
its command," he declared.
"Special interests have hamper-

The professor listed the ship-
ping interest, and the insurance
business as being among the
groups whose demands for con-
sideration of their private inter-
ests prevented the United States
from getting maximum power to
Europe in the aid program.

"THE LIBERAL states are forc-
ed to yield to the interest -groups
in such matters as the tariff, Prof.
Knappen commented, even though
the reduced tariff. might have a
desirable effect on the national

the solution to this situation may
be to form public interest pres-
sure groups to compete with the
special interest groups.

THE DEFECT was present from
8:15 a.m. to 8:45 p.m., but the
full effects of the lack of lighting
did not become evident until sun-
Then, the lounges and rooms
were thrown into pitchy black-
ness, and recourse was made to
a more primitive form of light-
The gloom and flickering sha-
dows prompted four denizens in
Barbour to don sheets, and pro-
vide ghostly escorts for men ar-
riving to pick up their dates.
After guiding the men in eerie,
candle-lit silence to the main of-
fice they left them huddled in the
blackness while phone calls were
put through to the central New-
berry switchboard and then trans-
ferred to Barbour informing the
residents that they had callers.
THE FRONT lounges provided
the great attraction of the eve-
ning. Early in the evening
there was no illumination at all,
but later a six-candle candelabra
was placed on the piano. Because
of this bright light, most couples
went straight through the lounge
to the unlighted sunporch. Ac-
cording to one unusual young man,
the only. handy thing about the
lighting situation was that he
didn't need any matches.
The casual informality of the
scene was disrupted once by the
entrance of one coed's parents.
They expressed dismay over the
hardships their daughter had to
contend with in order to get an
