DEEP INTERESTS:

Speleologist Finds Fun
Spelunking 'Down Under'

By LARRY SUKENIC
How many people have really
deep interests in life?
Prof. James A. Fowler of the
Philadelphia Academy of Natural
Sciences, who spoke yesterday at
Rackham Amphitheater on "Caves
and Cave Exploring," is an indi-
vidual who has deep interests.
,, * *
PROF. FOWLER, who received
a degree in biology from George
Washington University is a spel-
unker and a speleologist. A spel-
unker is one who enjoys the sport
of mountain climbing in dark
caverns. A speleologist also en-
Course Slated
In 'Briefhand'
Students who have had trouble
taking lectureikotes will be able to
take a "quicky" six-week course
in a modified kind of shorthand
next month.
Briefhand, a personal use short-
hand, will be taught at the Uni-
versity as an experiment, begin-
ning Monday, Feb. 16. The course
has been recommended for stu-
dents training in journalism, law
and engineering, but is 'not a.de-
quate for commercial use.
Phyllis Caulfield, instructor in
secretarial practices, will teach the
non-credit course, which will be
given weekly from 7 to 9 p.m. in
Rm. 271 of the Business Adminis-
tration Bldg..

joys the sport

of spelunking, but

is further interested in the sci-
ence of caves and in the study of
the geology, animals, history, fos-
sils, minerals, plant life and ar-
chaeology of caves.
Prof. Fowler is primarily a
speleologist who began spelunk-
ing as a result of his biological
work with amphibians and rep-
tiles. His special interest and
study of the salamander led him
to follow certain species of sala-
manders into caves.
In his talk, Prof. Fowler elab-
orated on the three classes of
cave fauna or cave animals. Cave
fauna are known in every phyla,
ranging from the protozoa to the
mammal, which is represented by
the bat.
In 1940 the National Speleolog-
ical society, of which he is a mem-
ber, was formed to study and in-
vestigate caves in all their aspects.
DuPont Awards 'U'

The du Pont firm will also pro-
vide two graduate fellowships,
varying from $1,500 to $2,100 for
University chemistry students. The
three grants are renewals of sim-
ilar ones made last year as a part
of a $600,000 program to advance
the teaching of chemistry on 32
national campuses.

Boak Gives
Jerome Talk
The shortage of manpower in
military, civil service and govern-
ment employees of the Western
Roman Empire was discussed by
Prof. Arthur Boak, Richard Hud-
son ancient history professor yes-
terday.
Although there is no direct in-
formation as to t'he exact size of
the Roman standing army during
the fourth century, it is known
the requirements were lowered of-
ten so that more men could enter
the ranks, Prof. Boak said.
Speaking on "Manpower of the
Empire," Prof. Boak's talk con-
cluded the Jerome lecture series.

MEMORIAL SERVICES TODAY:
Artist's Reputation Lives On
*4 * * *
By HARRY LUNNE_1
So great was the popularity of
Carlos Lopez thathonly a relative-
ly small number of his drawings
and paintings were left unsold atr
the time of his death Tuesday.a
The nationally famed Univer- >
sity professor left less than a doz-
en large oils and water colors and
from 50 to 100 smaller sketches or
water colors, according to Mrs.
Franklin Forsyth, Ann Arbor art
exhibitor. Her gallery had fea-
tured a one-man show by Prof.
Lopez last month.
All works in this exhibit have
been withdrawn from sale.
* * * - I
A PERFECTIONIST in his
work, the late artist often des-
troyed paintings he felt were in-
ferior. His young son Jon has a
kayak covered with prize-winning -
paintings that Prof. Lopez had
discarded, Mrs. Forsythe related.
But many collectors through-
out the country own examples
of Lopez's work, and he was re-
garded as one of the most pop-
ular artists in Michigan.
The Whitney Collection, the De-
troit Museum and other art insti-
tutes include his paintings. A large
water color, is currently on display
at a Metropolitan Museum of Art
exhibit.
Just as death came to the 44
year old artist-teacher, he had
entered an entirely new field of
research and experimentation.
He carefully studied pre-Ren-
aissance techniques, and worked
on several detailed, miniature 'y
drawings of individual faces sur-
rounded by even smaller profile
studies.:

Worried that young people
were too willing to conform ra-
ther than be real individuals
with a unique contribution to
make, the artist reflected his
anxiety by painting many of his
women without irises in their
eyes and making his men bald.
These symbols denoted the lack
of perception of young people and
their tendency toward conformity.
Memorial services for Prof. Lo-
pez will be held at 2:30 p.m. today

at 306 N. Division.
