im Technicians 'Bane'
) Myra Deren's Life

TH MICHIGAN DAILY

- . FJPAGE NNE

By ERNEST THEODOSSIN
Technicians seem to be the bane
of Maya Deren's life.
Miss Deren, internationally
known film experimentalist, was in
town Wednesday to give a demon-
stration-lecture of her motion pic-
ture work at Gothic Film Society.
In both her talk and an interview,
she attacked film technicians as
"the most conservative people
alive."
"I ran my last film through nine
labs," she said. "All I wanted was
w contrast in black in white. But the
labs are so .busy doing television
work, they kept making everything
soft.
More Troubles
"Then, if you do color films you
have a tougher time. If you pho-
tograph in blue and take it to
the labs, they say, 'Poor girl, she
underexposed!' You get the film
back with red and purple tinges."
Miss Deren also lamented the
plight of recording film sound
tracks, For one I icture, she want-
ed the original score to give the
illusion of depth. "I recorded it

three times. The technician said
it couldn't be louder because of
some little needle. He said it would
be distorted.
"I told him I wanted it distorted.
I was paying him $75 a half hour.
But he wouldn't distort it anyway."
Like Race Horses
Miss Deren began her career as
a poet at Syracuse University.
There she saw an art film series
and first conceived of the film as a
medium of artistic expression.
She uses the camera to record
visual images, in much the same
way that a poem is created. "They
say a race horse is 'by so and so
out of so and so.' My films are by
me and out of me. Like a good
painting, each viewing makes the
individual more emotionally in-
volved and allows him to under-
stand the work on an additional
level.
Miss Deren chided film makers
for trying to achieve realism with
wide screens. "Art is ARTificial,"
she said.

Fulbright to Duey
A Fulbright scholarship has
been awarded to Prof. Philip
A. Duey for study in Italy.
Duey, professor of voice in
the University School of Mu-
sic and conductor of the Men's
Glee Club, has also been
awarded a sabbatical leave
from the University for the
1955-56 year.
Weather Aids
Union Addition
Late delivery of steel is the ma-
jor reason for the four week lag
in construction on the Union addi-
tion.
However, Frank C. Kuenzel '27
said that good weather, "ought to
pick up some of the time that we're
behind in the building schedule."
Kuenzel reported that building
operations are proceeding normal-
ly.
All Union food service will be
stopped beginning June 26. The
dining room will reopen Sept. 10,
but the cafeterias will not resume
operations until sometime in Oc-
tober.

Wilson, Hart
To Talk Here
A series of 23 lectures and ex-
hibits on Michigan will be held at
the University during the summer
session.
Leaders in the fields of politics,
art and education will lecture on
Michigan's artistic and industrial
heritage as well as Michigan's
place in current national affairs.
Top speakers in the series will
include Secretary of Defense Char-
les E. Wilson, Walter Reuther,
President of American Federation
of Labor, Lieutenant Governor
Philip Hart and University Presi-
dent Harlan H. Hatcher.
"Michigan and the Great Lakes"
will be the topic of President
Hatcher's address, as part of a
two day series on the Great Lakes
and the St. Lawrence Seaway. -
Walter Reuther will speak on
"Labor and Michigan" during Aug-
ust. Other industrial subjects to be
discussed include the effect of un-
ions on Michigan's industry and
the "Impact of the Auto Industry
on the People of Michigan."
Movies, radio broadcasts, exhib-
its and special publications will
round out the program ending
August 13th.
