T.A. Richards, prominent British
philosopher, author and critic,
will give a talk on "Literary
Analysis" at 4:15 p.m. today in
the Rackham Lecture Hall.
The versatile Englishman has
led a colorful and varied career.
He has written several books on
literary criticism, including "Sci-
ence and Poetry," "Practical Criti-
cism," and one of his earlies and
most influential, "Meaning of
Meaning." In his works, he has
been primarily concerned with re-
dusing the problem of literary
criticism to a science.

THE SPRIGHTLY philosopher-
psychologist has been instrumen-
tal in developing a Basic English.
An attempt at a universal lan-
guage, it reduced the English lan-
guage to 600 basic words. He
prepared a version of Plato's Re-
public with this system and re-
cently came out with a book on
Homer in the same style.
When the Basic English the-
ory was first put forth it created
a revolution in conservative lit-
But Richards held steadfast to
his plan and insisted that even
the Bible could be interpyeted by
the 600 words he considers essen-
tial to the English language.
Noted as a teacher, his courses
are aimed at interpreting poetry
as a problem in reading as opposed
to the convention stand of reading
poetry for its content. For 'his
important contributions, he is
considered one of the most influ-
ential critics in the last 25 years.
He started his illustrious career
as a fellow at Cambridge and he
is now a full professor at Harvard.
In his spare time, when he is not
lecturing, teaching, or writing, he
enjoys his hobby of mountain

Prof. Hobbs Discloses Plans
For Honduran Isthmus Canal.
By ARLENE BELL
Proposed plans for a new trans-
isthmian canal across Honduras
to supplement the "inadequacy"
of the present Panama Canal, were
disclosed by Prof. William H.
t Hooft Says
"The Church of Christ, that of
the New Testament, needs to be
liberated from churches as we've
made them today," the Rev. W. A.
Visser 't Hooft asserted last night
before a large audience in Rack-
ham Assembly Hall.
Delivering the third lecture in
the "Religion in Life" series, the
present Executive Secretary of the
World Council of Churches con-
tinued, "The Church can be liber-
ated and there are signs in our
own time that it is being liberated.
Often a church becomes most free
when it looks most persecuted."
Drawing an analogy between
the Church and a jack-in-the-box,
he maintained that when it is
least expected, and suddenly, the
Church emerges in a new way.
"The effect is achieved by pres-
sure," he stated.
"Marxist critics accuse us of in-
creasing imprisonment by secular
force," he said. "We must accept
the fact that non-theological fac-
tors, such as society, economics
and politics, shake the churches'
Hobbs, professor emeritus of the
geology department, at a lecture
in the Rackham Amphitheatre last
Army engineers have estimated
that by 1960, the Panama Canal
will not be able to handle com-
mercial shipping on peak days,
and by 1970 on any days.
PROF. HOBB'S plan calls for
the building of twin tunnels 146
miles long with open-ditch canals
at both ends through the isthmus
of the Republic of Honduras. Un-
der Hobb's plan the work could
be. finished in a comparatively
short time-approximately five
Each combined tunnel-canal
will be 135 feet wide and 175
feet high, permitting passage of
the largest ocean liners and war
Two of the main problems, ven-
tilation and trans-shipment of
vessels through the tunnels, have
been provided for by Prof. Hobbs.
Ships would be towed by electric
locomotives operating from tracks
on berms at each bank of the
canal, eliminating the smoke from
the ships, and the ventilating
problem. Power for the locomo-
tives and electrification of the
tunnels would be furnished from
a hydro-electric plant to be con-
structed at Lake Yojoa with a
potential of 25,000 horsepower.
Prof. Hobbs estimates the pro-
ject would cost about one and a
half billion dollars and is almost
certain to be approved by the
Honduran government if it is
cleared by Congress.
A European Confederation will
be the topic of a panel discussion
among four foreign students at a
UNESCO Council Meeting, to be

The participants will be Hart-
muth Hensen of Germany, Robert
Donnasias of France, Ton Bronw-
ers of Holland, and Andre Wil-
lieme of Belgium.
Their discussion is a part of
the UNESCO Council's attempt to
carry out the aims of the United
Nations Educational, Scientific
and Cultural Organization by pro-
moting international understand-
ing through mutual exchange of
ideas. However, the campus group
