Painters Prefer Individualistic Life

"Love of individualism and free-
dom of decision is well expressed
In the life of an artist."
Speaking from their mutual ex-
periences as painters, Prague-born
Mojmir and Irene Frinta agreed
on their preference for the indi-
vidualistic life art offers.
"I have a deep horror of factory
work," Frinto emphasized. "I
would rather cut grass," he added.
Studying for Doctorate
Now studying for his doctorate
in history of art at Michigan, the
artist explained that during World
War II he and many other Czechs
were forced to work on the assem-
bly line in German factories.
"Doing the same little thing over
and over again was terrible," he
commented. "It was impossible
to have any pride in my work."
"An artist's life is inclined to be
less comfortable but more free,"
the painter continued. Although
people do not usually value indi-
vidualism much, Frinta comment-
ed that he highly cherishes his
freedom of decision.
Prior to coming to the United
States in 1951, Frinta and his wife
studied art in Prague and Paris.
Although the couple studied at
the same schools, this does not
show in their style.
Influenced by Fauvists
While in Paris Frinta was influ-
enced by the Fauvist movement
which is demonstrated by his use
of pure, rainbow colors. However,
earlier works prove that he has al-
ways preferred bright colors.

and lithographs, Frinto follows a'
more realistic style with a prefer-
ence for landscapes and still life.
On the other hand, the work of
his wife, Irena is more modern and
less realistic. Like her husband,
she uses bright, vivid colors but
her style tends to follow a cubic
She likes to do lithographs, also,
but her role as housewife and
mother does not give her much

opportunity to obtain the special
materials necessary for such work.
In France Mrs. Frinta started a
hobby which is of great interest
to the, fairer sex. Appealing to
women who like something origi-
nal in their wardrobe, Mrs. Frinta
designs and paints silk scarves.
My scarves are more expensive
than most American women want
to pay, because I must import the
paints from France and it takes so
much time," she added.
"But in France," she continued,
"women put more emphasis on
owning something which no one
else has."
While working on his doctor-
ate, Frinta has a part-time job as
assistant in the art museum. Be-
sides caring for the paintings and
exhibits, he restores damaged
works of art.
While in Paris Frinta worked
for a large studio specializing in
this field and worked on several

Center Takes
Survey Study
Of Election
(Continued from Page 1)
The Survey Research Center has
had a great deal of practice in
charting the political bent of the
nation. After the 1948 election it
r e v e a 1 e d fore-knowledge that
stamped it as the only group to
anticipate the Truman win over
Dewey. Its 1952 study came out
with almost the exact percentage
of President Eisenhower and Adlai
Stevenson votes.
No Predictions
But despite its record for accur-
acy, the Center has successfully
avoided becoming a prediction
unit. The studies have been direct-
ed at determining the motivations
behind an individual's vote, rather
than the outcome of a particular
election. Answers to the recent
questions are being analyzed and
are soon to be released.
One of the interesting results to
come out of the 1952 study was that
campaign fervor may be no more
than a gesture. After the election,
68% of those who had voted said
that they had known how they were
going to vote as soon as the nomi-
nations were held or even before.
Both the 1952 study and the pres-
ent questionnaire have employed
the Center's sample interviewing
technique, and have been conduct-
ed on a nation-wide basis. The con-
gressional study has included 1,150
Resolution Passed
Urging Severance
Salary for Davis

tion marks the turning of the tide
in the way these things have been
operated and in the way in which
tenure cases have been conduct-
Prof. William J. LeVeque of the
mathematics department said he
was "greatly heartened by the de-
cision of the vote. I was much im-
pressed by the full and deliberate
discussion which preceeded it," he
Last week the Faculty Senate
defeated Prof. LeVeque's motion
to make the Senate severance pay
report retroactive to the Davis
Regents' Decision
At the Regents meeting of Au-
gust 26, when Davis and Prof.
Mark Nickerson of the pharma-
cology department were dismissed,
Regents decided not to give the
faculty members severance pay.
Questions concerning severance
pay for Prof. Nickerson do not
come under jurisdiction of the
literary college.
Controversy has arisen concern-
ing whether the decision not to
give Davis severance pay was ac-
tually made at the Regents' meet-
ing in August.
While Secretary of the Univer-
sity Regents Herbert G. Watkins
said Regents had decided "not to
give severance pay," one Regent
commented he didn't exactly re-
call the question of severance pay
being discussed.
Previous Dispute
Only other severance pay dis-
pute at the University, since adop-
tion of the present AAUP stand
in 1941, arose when two engineer-
ing professors were dismissed for
"academic incompetence," in 1944.
Regents then agreed to pay the
professors one year's severance

A highly-placed University offi-
cial explained, however, that "One
Board of Regents is not necessar-
ily bound by decisions of an ear-
lier Board." He added that the
1944 cases did not "necessarily set
a precedent."

... IFC Ball . . Greek Week
Greek Week, Spring Ball
Chairmen N amed by IFC

Interfraternity.. Council officials
announced yesterday the appoint-
ment of Jack Schaupp, '56 BAd
and Jay Kaufman, '56 BAd as
chairmen of next spring's Greek
Week and IFC Ball respectively.
Greek Week, which annually puts
fraternities in the University spot-
light for a week, will be held this
year April 17-23.
IFC Ball Scheduled
IFC Ball is scheduled for April
28 at the Michigan League,
Schaupp, president of Delta Tau
Delta fraternity, has served the
past few months as chairman of
the Greek Week recommendations
committee. The committee work-
ing since last spring, has made
suggestions for improvement of
last year's Greek Week.
Kaufman, a member of Tau Del-
ta fraternity, serves on the Student
Legislature, is SL comptroller, and
a member of the SL Cinema Guild
Program Chairman
Last spring he was Program and
Patrons Chairman for IFC Ball.

Week activities are exchange din-
ners between sororities and fra-
ternities, IFC Sing, and the an-
nual President's dinner.
Deadline Delayed
For SL Petitions
Deadline for obtaining petitions
for Student Legislature seats has
been extended to November 6.
David Levy, '57, Elections Direc-
tor, has stated that "we are look-
ing forward this year to a record
voter interest and number of can-
didates. Position and class in the
student body presents no problem
to those academically eligible peo-
ple who recognize the vital impor-
tance and responsibilities of stu-
dent representation.
"Today's academic community
plays a far greater role than ever
before. In light of ever-increasing
enrollment, the need for respon-
sible government is paramount."
Petitions may be obtained in the
SL headquarters in Quonset Hut A
next to Waterman Gymnasium.

Of the 10 University projects
now under construction at an es-
timated cost of $12,825,000, three
mightbe classified in "miscella-
neous," which does not mean they
are unimportant.
Most noticeable of these, because
it frustrates students accustomed
to using the side door of the Union,
is the $2,900,000 Union Addition
Actually begun in July when
workmen installed new steam tun-
nels for the addition, construction
of the building itself will begin as
soon as the circular side drive has
been removed and the contractor's
materials arrive.
Workmen Intrude in Cafeteria
Already the project has en-
croached upon the dining facili-
ties. Panels stretching across the
archways and blocking entrances
to tables in the north alcove were
put up yesterday.
Cafeteria facilities will, however,
be in operation for the remainder
of the school year. Not until next
June will the cafeteria close to al-
low the final step of connecting
the old Union building and the
new wing.
Completion of the project is
scheduled for July.
The addition is being financed
by Union funds on hand and by a
sale of revenue bonds to be re-
tired by the Union's share of tu-
ition fees.
Athletic Administration Building
Another project students have no
doubt notices, because it lies en
route to the football stadium, is
the new Athletic Administration
Being constructed by the Board
in Control of Intercollegiate Ath-
letics on its own funds, the new
building will permit the consolida-
tion of the physical education and
intramural programs and staffs
with the rest of the sports pro-
Begun at the end of the summer,
the $350,000 Athletic Administration

Construction Continues
On Campus Buildings

Building is expected to be finished
by April.
Inconspicuous Project
The remaining item in "miscel-
laneous" is more likely unknown to
the majority of students, because
it is being built inside the Univer-
sity's vast heating plant.
Reference is to the addition of a
big new boiler to the heating plant
at a cost of $950,000. Financing of
the project was arranged by the
State Legislature.
Begun last spring, the new boil-
er creates the added boiler capaci-
ty needed for new University
buildings. Tentative plans include
an increase also in generator ca-
pacity to meet the constant expan-
sion of the University in its effort
to accommodate growing enroll-
ment figures.
Other Construction Planned
Besides the 10 projects on the
present construction schedule, oth-
ers are in the planning stages and
were included in the plant exten-
sion progress report received by
the Regents at their October meet-
Architects are making a prelim-
inary study of an addition to the
School of Dentistry.
Before the Regents and several
other University a n d student
groups for study is the proposal
for a Student Activities Building to
accommodate the increased space
needs of student organizations.
Preliminary plans call for such a
building to be constructed on funds
from a special assessment on stu-
Also under study is a Music and
Fine Arts Center on the North
