INGUAGE BARRIER BROKEN:
Japanese Artist To Show Woodcuts

By JIM SMITH J

se woodcut artist who does not

tunate coincidence, an inter-

Foremost Woodcut Artist
Kiyoshi Saito is today among ?

oodcut artists. The simplicity'

art by himself, as he has never
had any teachers in the subject.
Having grown up under the influ-
ence of the artists, Munch, Gau-
guin, and Rudon, he believes that.
they may have been the only ih-
fluence on his style.
Doesn't Like Traditional
He uses the woodcut print type
of art, but he has no intention of
carrying on the traditional Japa-
nese art, as he never did care for
the traditional style.
The main difference between his
art and Western art is that one
is done with a brush, and his with
wood.
He feels he can express some-;
thing that cannot be expressed
by brush; there is a certain inner
feeling to his woodcut art.
He says his style is "searching
for something in darkness." ~
State Dept. Sponsor
Saito arrived in this country at.
Washington, D.C., on January 11 of{
this year.
He toured the country at the ex-,
pense of the state department,
traveling to New Orleans, Texas,
Denver, New York, and finally1
back to Washington, D.C.
He is now sponsored by the Asia
Foundation.
Before returning to his own'
country, he plans to stop off in
Seattle,. where he will pick up'
paintings of Japanese-Americans
to display back in Japan.
By this, he hopes to help es-
tablish friendly relationships be-
tween Japan and America.
Film on the method of wood-
cuts will be shown before the de-:
monstration at 3:30 p.m. in Audi-'
torium B, Angell Hall.I

The University and the City of
Ann Arbor will attempt to deter-
mine the destihation of motor ve-
hibles approaching or entering the
city during the next two weeks.
The . survey will be conducted
under the direction of Lloyd B.
Reid, Traffic Engineering Consult-
ant of Detroit.
With the cooperation of the.
Ann Arbor Police Department, the
County Sheriff's Department, and
the State Police, one-fifth of the
vehicles will be stopped as they
approach Ann Arbor.
The drivers will be asked a series
of questions tq determine if the
vehicle is to enter the city or is
merely passing through.
Questions' asked will include:
Where did you start this trip?
Are you stopping in Ann Ar-
bor?
Where in Ann Arbor?
Are you leaving Ann Arbor to-
day?
Where are you going after leav-
ing Ann Arbor?
By what route will you leave
Ann Arbor?
The data compiled from this
survey and others to follow will
make it possible to plot major
traffic movements and judge the
ability of present traffic facili-
ties to accommodate them.

The interviews will be conduct-
ed by students from the Engineer-
ing College specializing in traffic
engineering work.
Stanley Cool, '56E, will direct the
interviews.
The interviewers have stressed
the importance of public coopera-
tion to the success of the survey.
