Talks on Book
" Prof. K u r t Weitzmann of
Princeton's Institute for Advanced
Study spoke yesterday on the con-
nection between literature and art
that was established early in
Greek history.
Lecturing on classical book illus-
tration, Prof. Weitzmann first dis-
cussed the illumination of Homeric
texts. He then traced art work in
connection with dramatic texts,
particularly the plays of Euripi-
The popularity of Euripides in
the Hellenistic world became much
greater than that of Aeschylus and

Sophocles because of Euripides'
keen attention to human nature,
said Prof. Weitzmann.
A -gauge to the popularity of the
literature of the time comes from
the evidence of illustration.
The reconstruction of the early
history of book illustration is a
t problem for the archeologist as
well as for the art historian. Papy-
rus scrolls are highly perishable
and few have survived to the pres-

The Paul Bunyan figure, standing astride the huge trophy won by
Michigan's football team when it beat Michigan State last fall, has

In a letter to the Michigan State News yesterday an anonymous
group calling themselves "Operation Rescue," admitted transferring
the trophy from a "dusty corner of the U of M locker room" to the
Spartan campus.

A large weekday crowd of 4.500

Wisconsin held on tenaciously

Stresses Security,
U.S. Leadership

Dwight . Eisenhower asked Con-

of a program to improve foreign
trade, to bulwark "the forces of

"It is essentially for the security
of the United States and the rest

As the President himself noted,
the "moderate, gradual reciprocal
program" he proposed was largely
a repetition of the one that got
nowhere in the last Congress,
"No Sudden Action"
The heart of it is a renewed re-
quest to continue the Reciprocal
Trade Agreements Law for three
years, with additional authority
for Eisenhower to cut tariffs by 5
per cent each year. He promised
there would be "no sudden or radi-
cal tariff reductions."
With Democrats in control of
Congress -now, the program may
get friendlier treatment than it
did last year. It w.as the Deo-

Top Priority Asked
House- Speaker Sam Rayburn
(D-Tex.) said he would ask the
Ways and Means Committee to
give top priority to the legisla-
tion. Rep. Joseph Martin, Jr. (R-
Mass.), the House minority leader,
said he was sure Congress would
cooperate with the President to
put the program through.
High trade levels, the President
told the lawmakers yesterday, can
be promoted not only by lowering
tariffs on a give and take basis
with other countries, but also by
increasing the flow of capital
among free nations, by restoring
currency convertibility, by expand-
ing the trading of technical infor-
mation and by inceasing interna-
tional travel.

Hart Speech Highlights

"I am a Democrat because his-
tory justifies the claim that in the
long haul, the nation is a little
better, when under Democratic
leadership than before," Lieuten-
ant-Governor Philip A. Hart said
in a Democratic Party Day ad-
dress yesterday.
Speaking to an audience of
about 200 students and faculty
members, Hart said, "There seems
to be an overemphasis on the
Washington picture."
He referred to public attitudes
toward politics. "We lose perspec-
