By BECKY CONRAD
"'V6n the Hollywood producers
don't call their work art," accord-
ing to Frances Flaherty, wife of
the elate film producer Robert
Flaherty.
She explained they consider art
as sbmething "a little less com-
mercial than the usual movie
fare." - Mrs. Flaherty has ,trlveld
to the South Seas, Aram Islands
off the coast of Norway, Eskimo
couritry around Hudson Bay and
India ;;with her husband in the
movif-making business.
THE FAMOUS moviemaker is
noted for his productions of "Na-
nook vof the North," "Maona,"
"Mars of Aran" and "Elephant
Boy.'
Flaherty, known as "the fath-
er of the documentary film, be-
gan+ -as an explorerrand contin-
uedt;his work, "letting the cam-
era= look at a subject and look
at it exhaustively," Mrs. Flaher-
ty added.
The; producer's wife .noted,
"There was nothing in the begin-
ning except the camera and the
scen; the story came last."
The' plot, she continued, "a'oset
from process of selection from the
runs, f scenes filmed."
His films'were the works of any
artist" Mrs. Flaherty continted.{
"Nowadays," she claimed, "it's
hard to get across that a film is*
an art medium. In Hollywoodl
they don't consider a movie the
wprk' of an artist, but instead- a
cooperative venture."
* * .*
NO ONE HAS inherited the;
Flaherty traditions, according to
Mrs: Flaherty. Today's documen-
tary,. "for social purposes," has
parted company with Flaherty's
original works, she said.
They have since become as
"commercial as Hollywood pro-
ducts," except there are thilA-
sands of littleindependent coi-
panies producing "documentar-
ies,',Mrs. Flaherty continued.
There is no tieup with the ar-
tist, she claimed.
Both Hollywood and indepen-
dent documentary" producers have,
compromised the tradition, Mrs
Flaherty declared, "so the artf9ft
does. ;not work independently n
the film medium."

TODAY-
Newman Club's monthly com-
munion breakfast after the 9:30
a.m. mass will be followed by a
talk by Judge Joseph A. Moyni-
han, presiding Circuit Judge of
Michigan, at the Father Richard

"Cycles in Materialism and Re-
ligion" is the topic of William R.
Lacey's lecture at 4 p.m. in the
League. Lacey is a lecturer for

Arab Club members will play
host to their University faculty
and student friends at a banquet
at 6:15 p.m. in the International
Center, featuring Arabian food
and native music.

Well-Known Reindeer Tells All
NORTH POLE, ARCTIC. Looking very dapper for
an 18-point buck with chalked muzzle and matching
white tail. assembly, Dasher, famous front-running
reindeer for the S. Claus Parcel Service, stated today:
1. Conditions on the northern tundra are pretty
much the same as ever. No-o, TV hadn't affected
tle grazing habits of the middle-class herds.
2. That despite reports to the contrary, you
don't ever thoroughly adjust to sub-zero weather,
regardless of the warm esteem people hold you in.
3. Rumors of a reindeer strike for Christmas Eve
are unfounded. Somebody's got a termite in his
antler.
When asked about the most popular Christmas gift
down through the years he replied without hesitation:
"Menswear by Manhattan. I've helped haul Mr.
Claus's sled, roe and buck, nigh unto forever ... so I
ought to know ... nothing makes a man happier than
shirts, sportshirts, ties, pajamas, beachwear or under-
wear labeled Manhattan. Don't know whether it's the
live style that makes a man look and feel so good,
whether it's the traditional tailoring detail, or the
array of fabrics, patterns and colors that are all so
unmistakeably quality. I'll admit one thing. I've kind
of wished sometimes that Manhattan would make
deerwear."
