"The techniqUe of interior land-

Speaking on "Eliot's Techni-

"POETRY OF the past is a
mode of expression in a simple
scenic narrative," the tall profes-
sor said, citing the example of "a
violet by a mossy stone," to illus-
trate the point of simple imagery.j
As a modern poet, McLuhan
noted, Eliot achieves the im-
pression of many complex and
arresting pictures through such
imagery as "the evening spread
out against the sky, like a pa-
tient etherized upon a table."
The images of the evening and
the patient both enter the read-
er's mind together, to create an
effect which would be an interior
TO CONTRAST the use of in-
ternal reflection Eliot achieves
through his method of complex
metaphor, the literary analyst dis-
cussed Alexander Pope's use of
wit in poetry.
"Wit is the combined force of
external situations acting upon
each other," he said. "Wit is de-
veloped in the surprise use of un-
usual situations, like, unusual
metaphors," he added.
"Words are tools to explore lost
territories in the mind," he said,
evaluating the power of both po-
etry of landscape and wit.

their home country during the

to be faithfully by their radio ev-

and the soccer season is over. ,
Using a transoceanic radio
with a super-sensitive antenna
has made their out-door eve-
ning vigil a necessity. The re-
ception is clearer and there is
less interference from the "deaf-

amateurs," Daccach is always sure
to explain with a disarming smile.
United in their addiction to
soccer the men disagree fiercely
in' their loyalties to teams now
competing in the Colombian
Soccer Championship.
Jose Romero claims allegiance
to the "Boca Juniors," a team us-
ing the Michigan colors. Most of
the others, however, auspiciously
favor the "Millonarios" team.
But despite the argument they
all agree soccer is still the most
popular game in the world. But

this statement is a quoted statistic
from an impartial American
spor'ts magazine.

Blood Quota Met
By Local Donors
Donors in Washtenaw county
are meeting the monthly blood
quota set by the American Red
Cross according to Mrs. Ethel At-
kinson, executive secretary of the
county chapter.
Washtenaw's quota is set at 5,-
000 pints of blood annually, with
half of the amount labeled for
military and half for local needs.

THERE WAS considerable hesi-
tancy on the part of Heuss to do
this. Prof. James K. Pollock of the
political s c i e n c e department
pointed out that it was probably
due to the fact that the song had
become associated in European
minds with Germany's aggressive
Heuss previously tried to find
another song which would dis-
place the popular "Deutschland,"
but was unable to. The Adenauer
cabinet had suggested several
times that it be adopted as the
new national anthem, with Heuss
finally bowing to their will "with
Prof. Preston W. Slosson of
the history department saw the
adoption as a "symptom of
emergent nationalism." But he
agreed that it was an attempt
to rally the German people
around a common ;symbol.
The song's history was traced
by Karl H. Reichenbach of the
history department. It's melody
was taken from Haydn's second
string quartet and the words were
written in 1840 by Hoffman von
Fellersleben, a German patriot.
According to Reichenbach, it
became popular -during the crisis
of 1840 when France was threat-
ening to invade Germany, and
served, as a rallying point.
In reality, the song has been
more associated with Germany's
democratic movements than with
authoritarianism. It was the na-
tional anthem of the Weimar Re-
public and during Hitler's regime
was sung only in conjunction with
the "Horst Wessel."
"Although it does declare 'Ger-
many above all,' it also limits Ger-
many's territory within its accept-
ed boundaries," Reichenbach de-
clared, "and is not associated by
Germans with imperialism."
U.S. High Commissioner John
J. McCloy commented "this is an
internal German matter, but I
don't like this song."
"Most important, however," he
added, "is not what the people
sing but how they act."
Doktor Will Make
European Tour
A former University music lec-
turer, Paul Doktor, will make his
second European concert tour be-
ginning in June.
Doktor, a lecturer in viola and
chamber music at the University

pearances in Switzerland, Germ-
any, France, Belgium, England

Greek Week begins today for
the more than 2,000 fraternity
men on campus who will celebrate
the occasion with a hectic round
of social events climaxing with

THERE IS a more serious side
to fraternity life,however, which
began for campus affiliates in
1846 when the faculty tried to eli-
minate the first three fraterni-
ties from University life by invok-
ing a rule that stated that "no
student shall become a member
of any society . .. which has not
first submitted its constitution to
the faculty and received their ap-
Public opinion won over, how-
ever, and with the ratification
of a new constitution in 1850
fraternities grew until World
War I when many houses en-
listed en masse in the Army.
Several houses were again forc-
ed to close during the last war but
the great influx of veterans that
followed caused the Inter-Frater-
nity Council to set up a special
committee to investigate Univer-
sity regulations governing eligibil-
ity of fraternity men for dormi-
tory space. -
SINCE 1946 fraternities at Mi-
chigan have undergone many
changes-the major one being the
revamping of rushing and pledg-.
ing procedures.
"Help Week" has superseded
the traditional "Hell Week" and
most fraternities cooperate with
the IFC in doing constructive
work for the University and the
A councilor system was also set
up last fall to advise rushees on
the intricacies of rushing and to
help solve their problems..Such a
system might have proved useful
in 1948 when three coeds pledged
three traternities after an hour-
long tour during which they
smoked black cigars behind a not-
too-successful disguise of men's

THE CURRENT major issue in-
volving fraternities has been the
pressure for the removal of bias
clauses in fraternity constitutions.
At present the Acacia plan,
which calls for the removal of bias
clauses through the efforts of the
individual houses with the help
of the IFC Counseling and Infor-
mation service, is in effect.
It was adopted after seven
months of intermittent heated
discussion that followed the veto
by retired President Alexander G.
Ruthven of the SL-SAC time limit
ruling calling for the removal of
all fraternity bias clauses by 1956.

Men's haircut prices are due for
a 25 Cent price rise in Ann Arbor
in the near future according to
Ernest Dascola, president of the
Ann Arbor Barbers Association.
The increase would be tailored
after a Detroit price raise where
haircut fees were upped 25 cents
on week-days and 50 cents on
Saturdays and days preceding
holidays. Weekend and pre-holi-
day cuts might not have as big a
jump as in Detroit, Dascola in-
The association is nbw conduct-
ing a survey to get member's atti-
tudes on the price raise. The raise
will probably go into effect Mon-
