'U T oStudy
The pressures of modern living
and how well Americans are able
to cope with them will be the sub-
Ject of a nation-wide study by the
University's Survey Research Cen-
ter being initiated this month.
"Many experts have talked about
the strains and pressures under
which we live today," Prof. Angus
Campbell, director of the Center
explains. "Some people feel the
rapid pace may be unhealthy, while
others claim the stress of modern
living is not too grea.
"Such a matter is of vital con-
cern in assessing the productivity
and health of the American people
as a nation," he continues.
"Congress and the U.S. Public
Health Service are sufficiently con-
cerned about this q'zestion to ap-
propriate funds for studies in this
area. Our survey is part of this
program of research."
FRENCH HISTORICAL AUTHORITY:
Records Influence on U.S. Thought
By BEVERLY GINGOLD
The influence or non-influence
of the French Enlightenment on
American political thought is still
quite controversial, according to
Prof. Paul M. Spurlin of. the
Prof. Spurlin's specialty is 18th
century French literature.
He claims that despite much re-
search in the field, "disagreement
persists and errors abound" in
evaluating Franco-American intel-
lectual relations in the colonial,
period and in the formative years
of the American governrlent.
Prof. Spurlin has particularly
studied the influence in America of
Montesquieu, the French 18th cen-
tury political thinker, concerning
the doctrine of the tripartite separ-
ation of the executive, legislative
and judicial powers.
This principle of tripartite sep-
arating of powers is expressed in,
the chapter on the British consti-
Evening Worship . . . 7:00 to 7:45 P.M.
"WHY DID GOD HAVE TO
tution in Montesquieu's "The
Spirit of the Laws."
Prof. Spurlin presented his con-
clusions on the influence of Mon-
tesquieu at the Congress Montes-
quieu held in May 1955 at Bor-
deaux commemorating the 200th
anniversary of the death of the
great French thinker.
His pamphlet "The Influence of
Montesquieu on the American Con-
stitution" was recently published
in a volume of the proceedings of
the Congress, at which he was one
of the two American Montesquieu
"Montesquieu, by his enuncia-
tion of the tripartite doctrine of
separation of the* powers, pro-
vided the verbal formula for a
concept which colonial thought
had been slowly elaborating," Prof.
"More than any other writer, he
gave to a tendency in America, its
The professor's conclusions were
drawn from his dissertation, "Mon-
tesquieu in America, 1760-1801,"
published in 1940. The study was
part of Prof. Spurlin',s work toward
his doctorate inFrench at Johns
The book was an objective at-
To Give Talk
Paul Shinkman, Washington
correspondent and news commen-
tator will speak tomorrow at Rack-
ham Amphitheatre in a University
Lecture in Journalism.
His topic will be "Behind the
News in Washington."
Shinkman will preview the pros-
pects of the next four years in
Washington as Iegards both the
national and international field.
He is an active member of the
National Press Club and regularly
attends the President's news con-
Shinkman was formerly a for-
eign correspondent for the Chicago
Tribune and has revisited Europe,
incouding the Iron Citsin area,
on numerous roving news assign-
tempt to reconstruct everything
about Montesquieu in the late
colonial period and in the forma-
tive years of the American repub-
Prof. Spurlin explained that his
approach to Montesquieu differed
from that of other scholars who
simply assumed Montesquieu's
contribution to American from
the fact that the principles of the
tripartite doctrine expressed by!
Montesquieu in 1748 were repeated,
in the American constitution.
"I wanted to evaluate Montes-1
quicu's influence by building aj
'vast mosaic' from the early Amer-
ican sources on the man," Prof.
He discovered that many of the
colonial newspapers quoted freely
from Montesquieu's "The Spirit of!
the Laws," and that copies of the
book belonged to the libraries of
Franklin, Marshall, Madison and
other great American statesmen.
"By 1787," Prof. Spurlin re-
marked, 'The Spirit of the Laws'1
was an 'American' classic.
"However, Montesquieu's ideas
on the separation of the powers
would not have had their tremen-
dous effect if the groundwork for
their acceptance had not been laid
in the colonial period."
He explained that while colonial
charters made no provisions for
tripartite separation, there was
nevertheless a tendency towards
such separation in colonial govern-
"In other words," he said, "I
found indigenous growth of tri-
partite separation of powers on
,American soil before The Spirit
of the Laws' was published."
'Grain of Salt'
"Montesquieu provided the
'grain of salt', so to speak, that
crystallized American thinking."
In 1955, the same year that Prof.
Spurlin presented his views at the
Congress Montesquieu, he was a
Fulbright lecturer on American
civilization and literature at the
Universities of Lille and Grenoble.
He has published various articles
on Franco-American literary and
Currently, Prof. Spurlin has un-
derway a study of Rousseau's con-
tribution to American thought.
Controversy recently raged on
the University of Wisconsin cam-
pus as to whether students under
21 should be permitted to pur-
chase beer at special places under
the supervision of religious or edu-
Wisconsin vice-president Ken-
neth Little spoke against a. bill
which would permit any student
under 21 to continue to purchase
beer in a school-spcnsored estab-
lishment or at Marquette Univer-
At an assembly meeting, Robert
Haass spoke for the bill as a Wis-
consin alumnus by saying "unless
students have normal outlets,
they're going to go out looking for
some place to drink." This would
"create a much worse problem,"
Currently, Wisconsin law per-
mits "any person," whether 21 or
18, to frequent special places un-
der the auspices of a "recognized
religious institution or of any edu-
Speaking for the bill, assembly-
man Tom Duffy, a Marquette
alumnus, said "Students are re-
sponsible, decent, wholesome
people who need some entertain-
ment." He added that beer might
just as well be served when stu-
dents have proms and dances, "so
they will come and stay."
A second bill pending in the
Wisconsin Assembly would raise
the age limit from 18 to 21 for
consumption offbeer where it is
sold, but would not affect sales of
