Daiches Lectures on Guilt,
Innocence in Shakespeare

Nine University faculty mem-
bers are participating in a Lan-
sing conference seeking solutions
to the Droblems of pollution, and
waste and mismanagement of nat-
ural resources.
Nearly 500'educators, sportsmen,
farmers and wildlife experts gath-
ered for the two-day session which
began yesterday. Conferees will
draw up a set of recommendations
for submission to Gov. Williams
and the Legislature.
The event is sponsored by the
University, Michigan State Col-
lege and the Michigan College of
Mining and Technology.
Arts Center's
Set To Open
Initial performance of "Anti-
gone," by Jean Anouilh, opening
here Friday at the Dramatic Arts
Center, was presented in Paris in
1943 because of a misinterpreta-
tion of the play's meaning by Ger-
man military censors.
Since France was occupied by
the German army, sanction of the
German censor was needed before"
the play could be produced. The
interpretation was a glorification
of the stat over man, and permis-
sion was granted. However, to the
French people the play represent-
ed the strength of the individual
over the state. In fact, Antigone
represented France, herself.
Opens Friday
The play, which will open at
the DAC at 8:15 p.m. Friday. was,
first presented in this country nine
years ago, starring Katherine Cor-
Based on the Greek tragedy by
Sophocles, Anouilh's version is an1
adaptation of the same story, to
be -resented in modern dress. The
translation is by Lewis Galantiere.
Fifteen light lenses have been#
rented by the DAC for this pro-
duction to afford greater flexibili-
ty in lighting. The play is act-_
ed on different stage levels, intro-
ducing an innovation in physical
design at the Center.

"Hey, Joe! Got a cigarette?"
"Can't you read signs? 'Lighted
tobacco is not to be brought into
or through this building.'"
Cigarette butts on classroom
floors where % "No Smoking" sign
is in view and smoke circling
around lecture halls indicate that
these signs may be read but aren't
being heeded.
"No Harm Once Inside"
Commented one student, "I take
those signs to mean we can't car-
ry a lighted cigarette into the
building. We can light it once we
get inside."
Smoking is allowed in corridors
where there are sand receptacles.
Classrooms, such as seminar rooms
b e a r i n g "smoking permitted"
signs, furnish ashtrays for smok-
ers' convenience. Private offices
also permit smoking.
"'No Smoking' signs only re-

Classes Interrupted
Students have been surprised
lately by attempts to enforce
these regulations. Security officers
and janitors have been interrupt-
ing lectures to stop sign violators.
Herbert G. Watkin, UniversityJ
Secretary and Assistant Vice-Pres-
ident, said he believes it is diffi-
cult to control smoking unless a
special person would be delegated a
to patrol each building.A
According to Albert E. Heusel,J
Chief Security Officer, "all smok-
ing regulations are being enforced 1
to the utmost of our ability." i

'U' Clubs Plan
Birthday Fete
Nobody here is very excited, to!
date, about the University's 138th
birthday on March 18.
In the 15 foreign branches of
alumni groups, however, plans for
celebrating - the anniversary have
already been made. From the
Alumni Association office here,
1,000 maize and blue cocktail nap-
kins were mailed yesterday to its
subsidiaries all over the world.
The University birthday party
"season," according to the asso-
ciation's General Secretary T.
Hawley Tapping, extends over a
three-week period, with celebra-
tions and banquets held through-
out the world. The napkins have
been sent to all the groups as a
souvenir of Ann Arbor.
Most foreign alumni groups and
clubs have headquarters in far
eastern and South American cities,
and are composed l'argely of form-
er University foreign students.
Bureau Meet Set
On Summer Jobs
The Bureau of Appointments
has announced registration for
summer jobs.
Summer placement in hotels,
camps, resorts and industries all
over the country is now open to
all students.
Registration with 'the Bureau

4 p.m. tomorrow in Auditorium C,
Angell Hall. Anyone interested in
summer placement m attend.

Man is actually the weaker sex,
according to a recent article in the
American M e d i c a 1 Association
A survey covering one day in
1953 showed that in the 6,840 reg-
stered hospitals throughout the
nation there were 1,206,592 pa-
ients. Men comprised 642,156 of
hese people while there were only
564,436 women-77,720 men.
Pregnancy Factor Overcome
These figures seem even more
tartling when the fact that preg-
nancy greatly increases the num-
ber of hospitalized women is con-
But according to the Journal
urvey even in the child-bearing
years of a woman's life, between
5 and 44, the number of men in
hospitals exceeds the number of
women by 13,000. In the years be-
ween 45 and 64 the excess rose

to 51,000. But after the age of 65,
about the same amouuit of men as
women are hospitalized.
Difference Explained
Dr. Franke.nDickinson, direc-
tor of the American Medical As-
sociation Bureau of Medical Eco-
nomic Research says that a study
of accidents and occupational dis-
eases might explain this difference
in hospitalization rates.
However, it could not explain
why there are 11,300 more nales'
sthan females in hospitals that are
less than fifteen years old.

Pressure by Students
SAC suggested that students
who were aware of the require-
ments could bring some pressure
to bear on landlords for improve-
ments. But it was also brought up
that housing is extremely scarce
in Ann Arbor, and students did
not have much choice of rooms.
City Director of the Department
of Building and Safety Engineer-
ing John E. Ryan has said there
is only one-half of one per cent
vacancies in the city's rooming
houses. He cited 10 per cent as the
normal, desirable ratio.
SAC discussion centered also.on
Prof. Brown's proposals. Although
agreeing that paid University in-
spectors would alleviate the task
of inspection, the Committee fail-
ed to come up with a department
that could finance such a plan,
IHC Asks Seniors
About Hall Needs
Seniors living in the residence
halls recently received a question-
naire outlining possible future"fea-
tures of proposed dormitories.
Since the Inter-House Council
felt seniors were most familiar*
with features in the dorms, they
were asked to give their opinions
on such matters as room prefer-
ences, suites, study halls, maid
service and telephone systems.
According to IHC President Stan
Levy, '55, the survey will be used
as a guide to planning of residence
halls "for the next 20 or 30 years

An intent audience yesterday
heard Prof. David Daiches of
Cambridge University explore the
possibility of innocence in Shakes-
peare's world-coming to the con-
clusion that in the real world guilt
is unavoidable.
Drawing on Shakespeare's en-
tire range of production, Prof.
Daiches closely analyze(' seven
plays in particular. His first theme
was the "moral ambiguity of in-
nocence," where innocence, plays
into the hands of evil as in
Tragedies of Innocence
According to Prof. Daiches,
"Hamlet" and "Othello" are trag-
edies of o'utraged innocence. Once
Hamlet realizes the existence of
evil in the world, nothing can re-
Zionist Group
Formed. Here
A permanent Zionist organiza-
tion has been established at the
University and on 59 other college
campuses of the United States and
Canada, according to the Youth
Department of the American Zion-
ist Council.
Several hundred students from
all parts of the country voted at a
recently concluded convention in
New York City to establish chap-
ters of the Student Zionist Or-
ganization" on as many campuses
as possible.
David Darsky, the University's
representative on the National
Council, said that a similar or-
ganization, the Inter-Collegiate
Zionist Organization, previously
existed on the campus.

store his shattered idealism. Even
justice does nothing to help the
morally outraged innocent.
-A different point of view is tak-
en in "Measure .for Measure,"
Prof. Daiches said. In that play no
character is free from guilt, and
therefore no character has the
right to judge. Here it is mercy
that saves the day, although in
"Hamlet" even mercy is impos-
Theme Later Reversed
In Shakespeare's later plays he
reverses the theme of innocence
co-operating with evil. In such
plays as "Winter's Tale" and "The
Tempest," good is shown to come
out of evil. However, Prof. Daiches
emphasized that tragedy is avoid-
ed.. only in the magic world of
Prospero's island.
Prof. Daiches ended his lecture
with the conclusion hat "Perhaps
man cannot live in paradise," but
on the other hand, there is "glory
even in the tragic paradoxes of
human nature."

Young manufacturing
expert pioneers in
automation at
General Electric
In 1964, our greatest shortage may be work-
ing people. This country's demand for elec-
trical goods will be 100% greater than it
is today. But there will be only 11% more
workmen. How can production per man be
boosted enough to close the gap?
For one answer, 31-year-old P H. Alspach,
Manager of Manufacturing Development at
G.E., is exploring automation.
Automation: Continuous Automatic Production
Automation is a way of manufacturing based
on the continuous-flow concept. Products
will be made, inspected, assembled, tested,
and packaged by a series of integrated ma-
chines in one uninterrupted flow. As industry
evolves toward greater automation, more
workmen will become skilled machine spe-
cialists or maintenance experts able to con-
trol complete systems.
Phil Alspach and the men under him now
draft layouts for automatic systems, tackle
the engineering problems involved, design
automation equipment, and even build some.
