EUROPEAN OBSERVER:
SwissLawyer Becoming Americanized
* * * *

By JANE HOWARD
McCarthy and Marilyn Monroe,
in the opinion of a Swiss observ-
er, constitute America's "two di-
seases."
Eugen Curti's complaints about
the United States end there. On
the whole the genial post-doctorate
law student has .little but praise
for America in general and Ann
Arbor in particular.
CURTI graduated from the Uni-
versity of Zurich in 1951 with a
doctorate in law, and unpacked
his bags at the Lawyers' Club last
fall after receiving a W. W. Cook
law scholarship via the Institute
of International Education.
His specialty, anti-trust law,
might surprise Europeans, since
there is no current need for it
in Switzerland, but Curti fore-
sees an eventual necessity for
anti-trust -legislation resulting
from a gradual commercial uni-
fication of Europe.
European regional delegate to
International Students' Associa-
tion's new house of representatives,
Curti was asked his impressions
of the campus anti-apathy move-
ment. "You'll find apathy a typi-
cal aspect of any good school," he
said. "People are too busy to do
everything."
On women he said "You get all
Phi Eta Sigma

Prof. Preston W. Slosson of the
history department will speak on
"How the Other Half Lives; the
Professor and the Student" at the
Phi Eta Sigma, freshman honorary
society for men, initiation banquet
at 6:30 p.111. today in the Union.
Ninety-three freshmen with av-
erages of 3.5 or above for two se-
mnesters will be elected to the so-
ciety this evening.

-McCarthy, Monroe, and mimeograph-

types no matter where you go.
Here they think more maybe of
beauty, which gives a nice atmos-
phere, while at home they care
more about the person."
* * *
WHILE CURTI termed Switzer-
land's neutrality basically a for-
mality, he claimed "We're very
proud of our 400-year non-aggres-
sion record."
Answering to "Eugene,"
"Gene," or "Oygen," the native
pronunciation, Curti is famed

for his mimeographed letters,
which he need only underline to
express his wishes. "I got the
idea," he smiled, "from those
'Dear: Mom, Gang, Sweetie,
Folks' postcards."
Curti feels he's acquired a val-
uable general contact with Amer-
ican life here which is just as im-
portant as his widened legal out-
look. "Now," he concluded, "I just
feel normal and perfectly happy,
but in five weeks I'll know how
Americanized I've become.

Packard Rd. and Stadium Blvd.,

2 students and as a research cen-
ter for botanists.
When the garden was estab-
lished in 1915 one laboratory and
a greenlhouse were built. Last
year, to add to the garden, a
new lab was completed in which
Botany 2 students now carry on
their experiments in practical
gardening and applied botany.
Students have garden plots
outside the greenhouse in the 50
acre area of the BotanicalGar-
den as well as room in the green-
house to grow their own plants.
Prof. Harley H. Bartlett of the
botany department serves as di-
rector of the gardens and Prof.
Frieda C. Blanchard is his assist-
ant.

of Lydia Mendelssohn Theatre
throughout the Drama Season.
Paintings, displayed for the
fifth year by invitation of Drama
season officials, were exhibited
earlier this year by the Associa-
tion. The pictures are all creations
of members of the local art group.
WILLIAM LEWIS, technical il-
lustrator at the Willow Run Re-
search Center and member of the
Art Association "hung" the 30
picture show, a job which took
five hours.
He maintains that the theater
lobby is not too satisfactory as
an art gallery because of the
plaster walls. All the paintings
had to be hung from the ceiling
molding as a result, he said.
Most of the five hours was spent
in standing back and staring at
the paintings on the walls and
then rearranging them, with the
advice of Art Association members,
Lewis said.
Mrs. H. S. Bull, president of the
art group, stated that the Art As-
sociation's purpose for the display
is "both to create and satisfy art
interest."
