Art Forms
Beginning his lecture with a
uminary of one of Keller's books,
Prof. Wolfgang Kayser, from the
jniversity of Gottingen in Ger-
nany, talked about "The Gro-
esque in Art and Literature," yes-
erday in the Rackham Amphi-
He used Keller's story to Illus-
rate the different reactions which
a grotesque work can bring: smiles,
astonishment, shock, laughter, and

Going on to trace the history
of this word, he spoke of Roman
paintings during the time of
Augustus in which a favorite sub-
ject was a plant with little human
figures growing on the stalks. Some
people "condemned the new orna-
mentation" but nothing could stop
its popularity.
During the 16th century, Italian
Renaissance painters created a
"dark, uncanny underground,"
Prof. Kayser said, and men like
Rafael ;went against the natural
human forms. They gave animal-
like qualities to humans or painted
feet as plant tendrils.
Literature such as Swift's " Gul-
liver's Travels" in the 18th cen-
tury showed the further advance-
ment of "la grotesca."
By the latter part.of the 18th
century, grotesque art was a defi-
nite form, with Pieter Breugel and
H. Bosch having' the greatest in-
Summing up his lecture, Prof.
Kayser said, "The grotesque in
painting and literature is the fear
of man of the dark which sur-
rounds him, and is at the same
time man's triumph over it."

MISS ELLEN C. HINSDALE receiving the renewal of her Ph.D.
from. Dr. Wolfgang Kayser.
German Professor Presents
Philologist' Renewed Ph.D

It is the custom at German uni-
versities that on the 50th anniver-
sary of the presentation of a doc-
tor's degree the faculty concerned
rebestows the degree.
Because of this custom, Dr. Wolf-
gang Kayser, professor at the Uni-
versity of Gottingen who is now a
guest professor at Harvard, was
in Ann Arbor yesterday. On be-
half of the German university, Dr.
Kayser rebestowed upon Ellen C.
Hinsdale her doctor's degree in

German philology which she re-
ceived from the University of Got-
tingen in 1897.
Miss Hinsdale, a Phi Beta Kap-
pa, received her M.A. from the
University of Michigan. She had
wanted to do graduate work in
the field of German philology, but
since there were few graduate
schools in the United States at
that time, Prof. Calvin Thomas,
head of the German department
advised her to go to Germany,

The political situation in France
following the recent general elec-
tions is "upsetting" but not un-
usual or unsolvable.
This is the consensus of opinion
given last week by four University
political science professors.
Prof. Henry L. Bretton expressed
"keen disappointment" over the
results but pointed out that the
Communist vote went down and
that "there are fewer anti-consti-
tutional forces in France now than
in 1951," the time of the last elec-
Prof. Lionel H. Laing said "The
situation is upsetting but not par-
ticularly unusual." This belief
was echoed by Prof. Marbury N.
Efimenco who commented, "This
fairly normal situation for France
is no more serious than any of the
other untable French govern-
Newspapers Pessimistic
"The initial pessimism of Ameri-
can newspapers (in reaction to the
vote) was excessive because they
seemed to expect some party, to
win a majority which was never
a real possibility," said Prof. Dan-
iel Wit.
It was felt by three of the pro-
fessors that some sort of a coali-
tion government would be formed.
Prof. Bretton said, "Pressures from
the Left and Right might cause
the center parties to join forces
but the past performance of
French politics makes this some-
what doubtful."
Prof. Efimenco observed that
should the two center parties fail
to join forces, "it is only natural
for one of them to unite with one
of the two extremes."
It was the belief of Prof. Wit
that "while no one can determine
what the coalition government
will be, it appears that the Lib-
eral and Democratic Socialist ele-
ments will probably be predomin-
A point stressed by Prof. Bret-
ton was that "the value of France
New Program
In Psychology
The psychology department has
developed a program for students
who feel that they are not getting
enough out of their courses.
Two special tutorial sections,
which will give a student a chance
to get a deeper coverage of psy-
chology, will be offered next se-
mester in psychology 31.
This special type of course will
benefit those who do well in small
groups but to whom larger groups
constitute a detrimental influence.
The textbook will be read and
completed in the first five weeks
in the tutorial section. The book
will be discussed once or twice a
week in meetings with the in-
Then, studeits in the sections
will select areas for further ex-
ploration and be assigned to a
small group of others who have
chosen the same area.
In a weekly laboratory period,
groups will carry out research on
both animal and human subjects.
Those wishing to be considered
for these special sections should

Young scientist
works on new ways
to improve metals
Today scientists and engineers face one of
the toughest barriers of all - the "metal
barrier." Modern technology has progressed
so rapidly that today's metals can't meet the
tremendous demands placed upon them. For
such fields as aviation, electronics, atomic
energy, present metals must be improved and
new kinds of materials must be developed.
One of the young men playing a role in
this new and important field is 30-year-old
Dr. Roland P. Carreker, Jr.
Carreker's Work Interesting, Vital
As a research associate in the General Elec-
tric Researeh Laboratory's Metals and
Ceramics facility, Carreker's chief concern
1s the improvement of metals through new
processing techniques.
In his work, Dr. Carreker has dealt with
such important metallurgical problems as
metal failure in high-speed turbine rotors,
determining the strength of pure metals
from -425°F, the temperature of liquid
hydrogen, to 2,8000F and economic studies
of new metallurgical processes.
25,000 College Graduates at General Electric
When Carreker came to General Electric in
1947, he already knew the work he wanted
to do. Like each of our 25,000 college-
graduate employees, he is given a chance to
grow and realize his full potential. For Gen-
eral Electric has long believed this: When
fresh young minds are given freedom to
make progress, everybody benefits - the in-
dividual, the company, and the country.
