that the university is as -anti-
Communist' as Mr. Sipple, and that
its methods have proven far more
effective. In fact, Mr. Sipple might,
with more accuracy, be labelled
the 'anti-anti-Communist.'"
LYL Permitted
Sipple charged in his statement,
"This campus is the only one which
permits the Labor Youth League
(which has been cited as subver-
sive) to exist.
"The university indicated no
change in its present policy. They
attempted to Justify their policy
on the grounds that the existence
of the LYL on campus is permitted
by law.;
He went on that the university
has "in its hands, entrusted to
themn by the citizens of the state
of Wisconsin, a large portion of
the greatest resource the state has
-the minds of the young people.
Future Beliefs
"The direction that these in-
structors give these young people
to a great extent determines their
future beliefs and actions as Amer-
ican citizens.
"We at no time have any quar-
rel with truth, but we do most
emphatically object to Communist
propaganda masquerading as be-
ing factual and the truth.
In reply, the Daily Cardinal
said, "Unlike Mr. Sipple, we do
not feel the university is being
tricky if it refers to the law.
Good Citizens
"We agree that one of the most
important reasons for being here
is to learn to be good American
citizens. We disagree with Mr.
Sipple on the way to go about it.
"We do not feel these three
young crackpots (the membership
of the Labor Youth League) are
enough of a threat to be taken
seriously, let alone to justify the
limitation of our rights."

FINNISH ARCHITECTURE ON EXHIBIT

Prof. Discusses Architecture Exhibit

"
i

By JIM BOW
"It's not the quantity, but the
quality."
This was one of the comments
made by Prof. Ralph W. Hammett
of the College of Architecture and
Design, on viewing the exhibit, of
Finnish architecture in Alumni
Memorial Hall.
Prof. Hammett, who stressed the
quality of the Finnish architecture,
had observed the bialding done in
other parts of Europe two years
ago. He compared Finland's ar-
chitecture with that of other Euro-
pean nations, and emphasized its
similarities to the other countries.
Designs Similar
Finnish architecture is represen-
tative of most European architec-
ture, he summarized. Prof. Ham-
mett illustrated his point by call-
ing attention to two of the ex-
hibited structures, "That apart-
ment house might have been built
in Italy, and the department store
could be in Holland."
The department store and the
apartment house help to explain
another of Prof. Hammett's obser-

vations. These buildings are a re-
sult of Machine Age construction;
that is, these structures, in their
simplicity, represent the present
period in architecture, when most
of the materials for this type of
building is machine - produced.
Prof. Hammett called the contem-
porary age in architecture the
Machine Age of building, and
emphasized that this trend is evi-
dent in most European nations as
well as Finland.
Apartment Houses
One chief difference between
Finnish and American building
can perhaps be illustrated by
the abundance of apartment
houses in the exhibit. Prof. Ham-
mett stressed the European liking
of apartment houses. The Italians,
he noted, build apartments because
of their desire to be with people.
However, the Scandinavians, live
in apartments for other reasons-
economy of heating, construction,
and more comfort in severe cli-
mates, when there is often 22 hours
of darkness on winter days.
Prof. Hammett mentioned the
Finnish climate and. geography,

and brought out the distinguish-
ing features of Finnish architec-
ture. He compared southern Fin-
land to Michigan's Upper Peninsu-
la, in climate and terrain.
When asked what three build-
ings he felt to be most represent-
ative of contemporary Finnish ar-
chitecture, Prof. Hammett re-
ferred to an apartment, the exhi-
bit of cottages, and a church. He
pointed out that the apartment
was not unique or unusual, merely
representative of the trend. He
chose the cottage exhibit because
"the small country cottage or-home
plays an important part in the
lives of the Scandanavians." Prof.
Hammett added that about 80%
of the population own week-end
and summer cottages.
He noted that the church was
an excellent representation of the
Finnish character of design. The
building is severe, without even
the flourishes of contemporary de-
sign, and one distinguishing feat-
ure is the steeple, which is separ-
ate from the steeply-pitched roof
and rests on the ground.
Italian Ensemble1
To Appear at Hill
Fourteen -of Italy's most dis-
tinguished virtuosi - instrumental-
ists will appear in a Choral Union
Concert at 8:30 p.m. in Hill Audi-

By DICK HALLORAN
Washtenaw County will open its
first juvenile home in late March,
according to Harold A. Nielsen,
Director of the Juvenile Court:
The new building, located on
Platt Road one quarter mile from
Washtenaw Avenue, is designed to
provide both boys and girls a tem-
porary home until such time as
the Juvenile Court determines
what the most satisfactory dispo-
sition of their cases may be.
Final action accepting the build-
ing in the name of the county is
expected to be taken by the Board,
of Supervisors near the end of this
month.
Home's Function
The new home will function to
give the care and attention which
should have been given by par-
ents to youngsters who have vio-
lated the rights of others.
Nielsen described such teenagers
as "those, if they were adults, their
offenses would be felonies. They
fall into two groups-those who
are classified by the much misused
term juvenile delinquents and those
who have been neglected."
With emphasis on proper liv-
ing conditions, it is hoped that
the institution will act as the first
step in turning out a responsible
citizen to society. "A boy or girl
going through his or her first ex-
posure to any kind of confinement
is bound to find it a trying and
frightening experience," Nielsen
continued.
'Only a Lockup'
Noting that the only previous
facility available was the base-
ment of a wing in the county in-
firmary, the juvenile counsellor
remarked that it "was not much
more than a lockup."
In the effort to achieve a home-
like atmosphere, eight bedrooms
accommodating one boy each are
located in one wing. Sliding doors
separate the rooms so that, in the
event youngsters from the same
family come in, two bedrooms can
be converted into a large room and
thus not necessitate breaking up
the family.
Four similar units have been
constructed for girls in the oppo-
site wing. Also provided is a liv-
ing room-bedroom suite for the
couple who will serve as super-
visor and matron.
Security Room
Provision has also been, made
for two boys' rooms and one girl's
room with maximum security
where youngsters tending to vio-
lence can be placed. These rooms
are constructed so that the in-
ternee cannot get out nor can he
hurt himself during his confine-
ment.
Large living, dining, and activi-
ties rooms complete the major

portions of the building. The last
named will be used to furnish re-
creational and instructional acti-
vity, stimulating the teenagers in-
terest in his own welfare and en-
couraging him to develop his self
confidence.
Temporary Stop
Nielsen pointed out, that as the
home is a temporary stop, no edu-
cational facilities have been es-
tablished. It is hoped that the
average stay will be short enough
that it will not interfere with the
child's schooling.
Wheredthosehwho have been
committed to the home will go
after the court decides will vary
from case to case, Nielsen indi-
cated. Some will be put into the
custody of a responsible person,
others will be sent to boarding
homes, while a third alternative is
committment to the Boys'Voca-
tional School or the Girls Train-
ing School.
"The new juvenile home is an
'in between place only," Nielsen
concluded, "but we hope it serves
as a starting point for these dis-
turbed kids in getting back on
the right track and leading useful
lives."
Choir To Sing
Mozart Mass
Mozart's final composition, the
Requiem Mass, -will be sung by
the Rackham Symphony Choir as
part of the Detroit Symphony Or-
chestra's bi-centennial tribute to
the famed composer at 8:30 p.m.
today at the Detroit Masonic
Temple auditorium,
The Rackham Choir, sponsored
by the University Extension Ser-
vice, has been trained by Prof.
Maynard Klein, director of Uni-
versity choirs. It is the official
choral group of the Detroit Sym-
phony Orchestra and tomorrow
will be directed by orchestra con-
ductor Paul Paray, as part of the
Detroit Symphony's regular con-
cert series.
Butts To Lecture
Prof. R. Freeman Butts will
speak on "The Tradition of State's
Rights in American Education" at
4:15 p.m. today in Aud. A, Angell
Hall.
He is participating in the annual
History of Education lecture spon-
sored jointly by the School of Edu-
cation and the History Depart-
ment.
Prof. Butts is a member of the
faculty of Teacher's College, Col-
umbia University.

Asian Press
Plays Down
Segregation
America's school segregation
problems and incidents like the
Autherine Lucy case probably have
received little attention in the in-
dependent Asian press, according
to a Burmese lecturer now visiting
the University.
Daw Mya Sein, senior professor
of history at the University of
Rangoon, explains that most of
the newly independent Asian na-.
tions like Burma are so busy solv-
ing their own domestic problems
that they have little time to de-
vote to foreign incidents. Besides,
she adds, the cultural background
of most Asians includes very little
experience comparable to mass
segregation as practiced in the
South.
Thus, while the Burmese resent-
ed the "exclusiveness" of British
residents during the colonial per-
iod, their main interest lay in
achieving national Independence.
Since the British comprised only
a small part of the total popula-
tion, the practice of a color bar
within their own community did
not affect large segments of the
Burmese people.
Domestic Issues
Now that independence has been
won, Daw Mya Sein continues, the
main interest of the Burmese
lies in rebuilding their property,
achieving agrarian reforms, and
broadening the educational base
for a democratic state. Develop-
ments in these areas dominate the
Burmese press.
Foreign affairs are primarily the
concern of a small, well educated
elite, she explains. Most of these
persons have visited the West ex-
tensively and are able to put inci-
dents like the Lucy case in proper
perspective. Burmese Premier U
Nu retained a highly favorable im-
pression of the United States de-
spite a diplomatic "incident" in
the office of Agriculture Secretary
Benson last year, she notes.
Daw Mya Sein says the basic
desire of this educated elite-like
that of the people-is for a con-
tinuing period of peace In which
to establish a smoothly function-
ing national government. This ex-
plains the deep interest in neutral-
ism manifest' in most independent
Asian nations, she believes, and
results in a sincere effort to pro-
mote peaceful relations between
the East and West.
Gradual Segregation
Noting that Burmese leaders
achieved national independence
through persistent negotiation ov-
er a period of years, Daw Mya
Sein says other major social
changes dike school integration
may best be achieved on a gradual
basis.
