Artist Deceives Public
With Life-like Creations


It takes a keen mind and a
sharp eye to spot the living from
he dead where the work of George
Marchand is concerned.'
As visiting artist and sculptor
n the University Museums, Mar-
hand creates deceiving flowers,
fossils and reptiles from plastic,;
wax and rubber materials for the
nany exhibits there.
"MORE THAN one person has
umped a mile after taking a look
at the two rattlers I have curled
up on the desk in my studio. It's
flattering, of course, but it also;
akes a lot of quick explaining to
eassure visitors they're only rub-
ber latex models."
The steps taken to attain
such a frightening life-like
quality begin with casting a
plaster mold from the living

Peace Hopes
On Schools
Long term hopes for achieving
world peace %rest upon schools and
teachers, Prof. Walter Lives of
the political science department
told more than 600 teachers certi-
ficate candidates at the education
school Convocation yesterday.
Although- the immediate crisis
must be handled by men in control
of UN governments today, tomor-
row's chances for maintaining
peace depend upon the youth in
school today, the former deputy
director general of the United Na-
tions Educational, Scientific, and
Cultural Organization asserted.
THE PRIMARY objective of the
schools today should be the teach-
ing of a sense of civic responsi-
bility and a will to participate in
the democratic process, Prof.
Laves asserted.
"This is called political lit-
eracy' and includes teaching
that the peoples of the world
are interdependent in achieving
p r o s p e r i t y and maintaining
It also includes, he continued,
the concepts that certain basic
rights must be observed every-
where, that the UN is indispensa-
ble to peace, and that the peoples
of the world differ from each
other in values, religion, economic
systems, political beliefs and so-
cial organization.

WHEN THE MOLD is removed
from the rattler's body, fine rub-
ber latex is then poured into it
and the resulting form shows
every minute detail from the
scales of the skin to the nostrils,
"The next step is painting on
their natural colors and putting
in beads for the eyes. The re-
sult, as you can see, is a pretty
creepy snake with glassy eyes.
And I can even wire them to
rattle-on special request."
The designing of extinct fossils
calls for detailed research to re-
constructthe many missing parts,
Marchand said.
"Only the hard shells remain,
because the inner parts don't last
through the years. So it's neces-
sary to copy these soft parts as
well as the coloring from the
nearest living relative.
THIS MICHIGAN fossil display
in the Museum will be shown at
1:30 p.m. Sunday on WWJ-TV

Prof. Lewis B. Kellum of the ge-
ology department will discuss

Stable Prices
Expected Soon
If economic controls are well ap-
plied, there will be substantially
stable prices for the next six
months according to results of a
survey of consumer finances for
1951 just completed by the Survey
Research Center.
Prof. George Katona, program
director of the center, announced
that the survey shows that al-
though there is much inflationary
sentiment in the country, proper
controls will mean that large price
increases are not likely for the next
half year..
The survey was made by inter-
views with 2,800 people in 44 states.
This is the seventh such survey to
be made by the center. Results,
which will be fully released tomor-
ror will be sent to Washington for
the use of the Federal Reserve
System board of governors.

At noon yesterday, President Ruthven was named honorary chief
of the Maizigamua Indian tribe by 25 lipsticked and blanketed co-eds
in front of his home.
In a short ceremony, which was punctuated by feminine grunts
and tribal incantations, President Ruthven received a chief's war
bonnet and was dubbed "Chief Slayer-of-Trouble Soother of Woe
Great-Tears-Are-Wept That-You-Must-Go."
PRESIDENT RUTHVEN acknowledged the honors bestowed upon
him by the warriorette's saying, "Keep the home fires burning in the

Executive Development.

The institute, sponsored by the
Bureau of Industrial Relations of
the University, is one of four sucb
programs being conducted this se-
mester. Representatives from vari-
ous firms come to Ann Arbor tc
study the findings of a study made
in 48 selected companies on the
subject of executive development.
This study was made by Prof
John W. Riegel of the business ad-
ministration school, who is i
charge of the institute.

Milos Jilich, a student leader at
the University of Prague, was 19
days away from graduation in
1948 when the Communist admin-
istration expelled him from school,
forcing him to flee west.
Along with two fellow students,
he made his way into England.
Jilich immediately made out an
application to enroll at the Uni-
versity but there appeared little
chance of his getting through the
monstrous. amount of red tape

Economics isistructors were
given a little advice the other
day In a lecture by Prof, Wil-
liam B. Palmer, of the econo-
mies department.
1. An instructor must get the
subject matter across to the
students rather than just get-
ting the subject matter out of
2. Of necessity, he must have
a sense of humor,
3. It is not enough that a
teacher know his subject mat-
ter; he must be interested in it
4. Clarity of objectives are an
important factor.
5. The tempo in the presen-
tation of the subject .matter
should be adjusted to fit the
majority of the student bodx.
8.An instructor must be able
to interpret and supplement
the text book material.
