As far as his own academic life
goes, Berliner maintains a 2.8 av-
erage. He is sorry, though, that
he hasn't been able "to live up to
the potential" and his good fresh-
man academic standing which got
him in Phi Eta Sigma honorary.
He points out that half of the
courses he is taking this year are
in unrelated fields and require no
prerequisites. He has been par-
ticularly interested in courses
taught by Profs. Angell, Eisenberg
and Maurer in sociology, fine arts
and journalism.
He has "taken on an increasing
regard for history and philosophy"
toward his senior year "since these

should be expressive."
On his way to shave, Berliner
also criticized people most for a
"lack of sensitivity. People should
look beyond the surface and see
real things. They should look at
other people, ideas and considera-
tions in their true lights."
He also commented that "there
is often a tendency for college
students to take into government
and business moral and ethical
standards which are different from
those in their day-to-day lives.
This is wrong."
Reflecting on his past year as
the first president of SGC, Ber-
liner said one of his greatest ex-
periences at the University was
the way in which the Council
handled spring rushing. There
was faith in SGC and SGC justi-
fied that faith."
Laughing at some of the things
he had said during his interview,
the second-generation Washing-
tonian ("not blue-blooded") drove
back to campus for his speech
saying only, "Anyway, like sun-
tans and old soldiers, campus
leaders fade away."

The first visual proof of the
existence of a large prehistoric
moose in the state of Michigan has
recently been acquired by the Uni-
versity Museum of Paleontology.
The object, an antler about two
feet long, places the large animal
in the Pleistocene period, about
7 to 9 thousand years ago.
Experts had long suspected that
such a creature had once lived in
the state for evidence had pre-
viously been found of its existence
in New York, Ohio, and Indiana.
Most people unearthing such a
find would have no idea of its
importance, and according to Prof.
Claude W. Hibbard, curator of
vertebrate at the museum, it is
highly conceivable that many
people working on the land have
come across these things and just
thought that they were unim-

portant old bones.
In fact, this is exactly
happened with the antler.

Sales Begin
For Technic,
A special issue of the Michigan
Technic featuring the Interna-
tional Geophysical Year goes on
sale today.
The engineering college maga-
zine describes man-made satellites,
polar expeditions, rocket develop-
ments and meteorology.
In addition, the Technic has a
science fiction story, a profile on
the world-famous guided missle
expert, Dr. Wernher von Braun,
and other features.
Because of the special issue, the
magazine expanded to 80 pages
this month.
Students are advised to buy
their copies early since recent
issues have been sold out within
the first two days.
The Technics will be sold at the
Engine Arch, West Engineering
Building and East Hall.
Business Talk
Slated Today
Methods of increasing sales and
reducing sales costs through self
service and self education is the
discussion topic of the Merchan-
dising Conference being held today
in the Union.
Professor Edgar H. Gault, of
the business administration school,
will speak on "The Future of the
Small Retailer."
The Conference is sponsored by
the University School of Adminis-
tration in cooperation with the
Michigan Retailers Association and
the Michigan Retail Hardware As-

on their farm, found the antler
and assumed it was just a rem-
nant of a large animal which lived
in that area a few hundred years
Since there have been no moose
in the south-western part of the
state for a long time, the antler
was displayed as a curiosity and
picked up by a local paper.
The marl, which contained the
antler, was dredged from the bot-
tom of a pond. Since the break
was clean, it is obvious that the
animal must have shed it by the
water, which is still the current
habit of moose.
Probably because it was hit by
the shovel during dredging, an-
other section of the antler was also
broken. "The brothers searched
the area carefully, but could find
no other clues to the animal," Pro-
fessor Hibbard said.
A friend of Prof. Hibbard, real-
izing that the find might be of
some importance, immediately
mailed him the clipping.
"I immediately recognized the
antler as that belonging to the
giant mooselike Cervalces. The
beam, the section of the ntler
which is connected to the skull, of
the present moose is about three
inches, this one was at least eight."
As quickly as possible Prof.
Hibbard took off to Berrien
Springs, where the brothers, Ed
and Will Pude, live.
Donated to 'U'
"However, the Pudells are ex-
cellent hunters and wanted to add
the antler to their already large
collection. I finally convinced them
of its value and they donated it to
the University on the condition
that we make a plaster model,
which we would send them. Work
on the cast is now underway."
Prof. Hibbard had to make the
trip as quickly as;possible. "All

in the field of industrial design,
yesterday addressed a near-tapa-
city audience in the architecture
auditorium in a lecture entitled
"Design, Circa 1900."
His talk, sponsored by the art
department of the College of Ar-
chitecture and Design, dealt with
a movement in art and design,
called "the new art," which first
became prominent around the turn
of the century.
This new movement was a tran-
sition from generally unattractive
conglomerates of lines and figures
in designs to what we now call
functional beauty.
Describes Functional Design
Functional beauty, Kaufman
said, is a form which expresses
that which the artist wishes to
express, but which serves a useful

art form.
This idea of combining beauty
with purpose, which first became
prominent in the late 19th and
early 20th centuries, is the factor
behind current trends in architec-
ture and design, where the "new
art" seems to have reached a peak
of popularity.
Kaufmann illustrated his talk
with slides picturing the work of
prominent men in the field-art-
ists from Italy, France, Germany,
and the United States between
1865 and the turn of the century.
In this way he showed his listeners
the successive stages in the de-
velepmnent and use of functional
beauty in art and design.
Uses Slides
The first slide was an illustra-

slide progress was noted in the
use of the new concept and the
trend toward what is now called
modern design, which, though
thought of as something strictly
modern, really had its inception
around 1900.
To further explain what the
"new art" was striving to accom-,
plish, Kaufmann cited three goals
of an artist under the influence of
the new movement in the latter
19th century: (1) organic, natural,
design, (2) logic of structure and
use, and (3) strict adherance to.
the basic line of utility.
Kaufmann, widely known and
respected in his field, is a visiting
lecturer at MIT, and is currently
writing the article on architecture
and design which is to appear in
the Encyclopedia Brittanica.
