This past week the conbined
efforts of the romance language,
history, fine arts, anthropology,
music, and the architecture and
design departments have produced
a perspective view of the Mexican
culture and history through a
symposium and art exhibit.
The week's symposium began
officially with a banquet in honor
of the Mexican ambassador, don
Manuel Tello, last Thursday night.
The symposium program began
with a Mexican play and pro-
gressed through three afternoons
of speakers whose topics ranged
from pre-Columbia Art, Colonial
Art and Mexican Art today.
When asked to comment -on
what the symposium and art
exhibit has accomplished Prof.
Charles H. Sawyer, Director of the
Museum of Art said "The art
exhibit and symposium has given
us a perspective view of our Mexi-
can neighbors. Here is an older
and different culture close to our
doorsteps. We are less aware of
this culture than we should be.
These exchanges should happen
The art exhibit at Alumni Me-
morial Hall has a representative
group of art objects of the Mayan
and Aztec cultures.

Book by Angell
The University Press will re-
lease a new book by Prof. Robert
C. Angell of the sociology depart-
ment next month.
Entitled "Free Society and Mor-
al Crisis,' 'the book deals with the
problems of a technical society
and its moral!order.
Prof. Angell received his B.A.,
M.A. and Ph.D. degrees from the
University, and joined the econ-
omics department in 1922.
He became an assistant profes-
sor of sociology in 1926, and was
chairman of that department
from 1940 until 1952.

"The Phrygian culture might
have been greater than the Greek1
if it had not been overpowered by
barbarians, a darkness from which
it never returned," Rodney S.
Young said yesterday.1
Young, of the University of
Pennsylvania Museum, spoke of
"The Phrygian Tomb of dordion"
which he has been excavating for
the last three or four years.
Several important archaeologi-
cal historical dates have been
changed because of the openingj
of the two tombs.
A glass dish pushes the date of
the origin of blown glass back to
the eighth century B.C. Previous-
ly the art was thought to have be-
gun in the fifth century.
An inscription on an urnj
changes the date of the origin of
the Greek alphabet to sometime
before 700 B.C.
Inhabited 4,000 Years
These tombs are the burial,
places of the rulers of the Phry-
gian civilization, which was the9
leading power in Asia Minor prior
to the Persian Empire about 700
The area has been inhabited for,
the last 4,000 years because the
location is in a rich valley, on a
trade route and at the converg-
ence of two rivers.
These tombs are found along
an ancient road which leads from
the city. They are 175 feet high
and 800 feet wide at the base and
resemble the hills in the western
United States desert.
Find Child's Tomb
Young excavated two of these.
The first, a child's burial place,
was caved in. It was built for a
four or five year old who was laid
among many toys, and' other ob-
jects made of' bronze and brass.
Several clay pitchers, glass objects
and other bronze implements were
found also, Young said.
The second tomb was excavated
from the side after being probed
with an oil drill from the top to
determine the area of the actual
"The construction and contents
of these-mounds prove that the
Phrygians had a good understand-
ing of architecture and engineer-
ing and were good craftsmen,"

. biographer's problems

for which he has been searching.
May Have Over-Abundance
In contrast, Prof. Edel pointed
out' another genuine problem of
the literary biographer is having
an over-abundance of materials.
"The biograph~er, like the his-
torian," he said, "always wants
more material than he could pos-
sibly use." But sometimes, he
noted, this results in an "embar-
rassment of riches" or an actual
"revulsion" at the weight of paper
In conclusion, the professor
said that "a mass of documents
remains a mass. It is the arrange-
ment of the documents in a
homogenous, synthetic whole"
which' is the real test of a good bi-
