Brussels Fair To Show 'Atomic World' in Miniature

By FRED CHEVAL
Associated Press Feature Writer
BRUSSELS-On either side of
a street in the outskirts of Brus-
sels, the United States and Russia
are preparing for a battle of pres-
tige.
Comparison Unavoidable
The Brussels World Fair is the
battleground. The question to be
answered: Which nation will make
the biggest impression on the mil-
lions who will visit the fair?
The answer won't be long
awaited. King Baudouin will
inaugurate the 1958 World Fair-
the world of the atomic age in
miniature-on April 17 for a six-
month run. It will be the first
international exposition since New
York's fair in pre-nuclear 1939.

completed in time for the opening.
Whether one likes it or not, the
comparison between the United
States and USSR can hardly be
avoided. The United States' big
circular exhibit building stands
on a six and one-half acre tri-
angle. Across Parc Gate Avenue is
the large, rectangular Soviet
building, resembling a giant chunk
of ice from some northern Soviet'
territory.
Soviets Have Advantage
In the competition for the at-
tention of the 35 million people
expected to visit the fair, the
United States is starting out with
two obvious handicaps:
1) U.S. fair officials have to
obtain their funds from Congress.
Soviet officials can spend as much
as they wish without having to
account to their people.
2) The Soviets can-and will-
stuff their building with trucks,
tractors, railroad engines, elec-
tronic and automatic machineries,.
To Sell Books.
Used books will go on sale from
8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. tomorrow
and Tuesday in the .former base-,
ment study hall of the General
Library, according to Robert Mul-
ler, assistant director of Univer-
sity libraries.
The 7,000 books to be sold will
be priced from 15 cents, with most
under a dollar. Inceme from the.
books, which are duplicate copies,.
will be used for the purchase of
new volumes for the University
libraries.

and one

But as one U.S. official said, "We
can't display bulldozers which have
been building most roads leading
to the fair and many elsewhere in
the world. We can't exhibit our
cars;. they roam roads everywhere.
"We can't show machines that
workers use daily in factories over
the world. We can't display our
latest planes which will land most
of the thousands of visitors flying
to the fair.
U.S. Permanent Exhibit
."We are on a permanent, almost
worldwide live exhibit with those
things which, on the Soviet side,
will look like achievements and
novelties."'
There's no question that Russia
is outaspending the Americans.
Howard S. Cullman, United States
commissioner general to the fair,
estimated the Soviets are spending
50 to 60 million dollars.
The Russians won't reveal how
much they're spending. "It is not
a question of the money spent, but
of the development of the country
which is exhibiting," said a Soviet
official. "If you give a country like
Spain or Greece a billion dollars
to present an exhibit, it would not
necessarily be a success"
Resources Limited
Congress has provided $12,345,000'
for the American exhibit. More
may be forthcoming. Cullman has
warned that the United States
pavilion might not be able to
remain open at ,night because of
limited resources.
"I do not want to do a second
rate show in competition with our
next door neighbors," he said. "In'
order to do a top-flight Job we
will need 15 million dollars."
Architecturally, the United
States pavilion will top the Rus-
sians. Edward D. Stone of New
York designed the world's largest
circular building, with a free span
room 340 feet in diameter, 95 feet
high, covering 200,000 square feet
of floor area. The building will en-
close trees which were on the site.
American Life Shown
The building is a combination
of transparent plastic and a golden
thin plastic lattice. Its plastic roof
hangs on cables stretched from
the outside walls to a central
cylinder.

of their big Tupolev Jetj

The exhibits will cover all as-
pacts of American life. There will
be an art and folklore section, a
display of United 'States technol-
ogy, exhibits of science and city
planning, a typical United States
Main Street and model homes.
There will be an Americn res-
taurant, a small closed-circuit
color television studio and a small
bathing beach. American scenes
and landscapes will be shown in
a movie prepared by the Walt
Disney studios.
Display "Problems"
An unprecedented part of the
United States display will be a
section devoted to "unfinished
business." This will explain the
nation's problems which have not
been completely solved-drought,
traffic, slums and racial disputes.
Across Parc Gate Avenue, the
Russians are erecting amassive
glass,, steel and aluminum 'struc-
ture covering five and one-half of
the six and one-half acres alloted
them. It has a total capacity of
327,000 cubic yards. A large statue
of Lenin will overlook the display.
The Soviets have announced
they will fill their building with
working machines and graphic dis-
plays "illustrating all aspects of
Russian life.
°A large number of performing
art companies and individuals are
scheduled to give shows in thie
1,000-seat auditorium adjacent to
the main Soviet building.
It is in this field that the Rus-
sians appear .to dominate by far
the Amercans, both in number p;
performances and performers.Sut
private funds are coming In which
might allow the United States o,
enlarge its cultural presentations.
Art Museumi
Sows Work
Of Professor
Drawings and paintings by Prof.
Jack A. Garbutt, of the architec-
ture college, are now on display
in the Museum of Art in the
Alumni Memorial Hall.
The exhibition, which, will be
in the South Gallery until April
6, consists of works done by Prof.
Garbutt under a Rackham facul-
ty research grant last summer.
In the Uintah Mountains of
northeastern Utah he made over
100 drawings of rock and wood in
their states of growth and decay,
"to develop linear imagery In
painting that will contain pat'
terns of line derived from unusual
wood and rock formations in na-
ture, and to suggest the vast hid-
den forces that have created these
patterns."
He said he became interested in
line through a series of paintings
done during the summer of 1956
at Lake Superior. There agnate
and driftwood were his main
sources of concentration, and
"there followed a fascination with
all kinds of line."
Prof. Garbutt joined the Uni-
versity faculty in 1952. He has
participated in group shows and
competitive exhibitions through-
out the country, and in 1955 held
a one-man show in Detroit.
