GOLDBERG:
Education
To Decide
Arms Race
Prof. Leo Goldberg, chairman of
the astronomy department, told
the Ann Arbor Eastern Kiwanis
Club yesterday the United States
scientific education program will
decide the outcome of the tech-
nological race between this coun-
try and the Soviet Union.
He said American scientists are
well aware of Russia's advances
in the field of science.
"The satellites are only one
indication," Prof. Goldberg said.
"There will be others." He listed
controlled fusion, the harnessing
of solar energy and the technique
of artificial photosynthesis as
other possible scientific discov-
eries.
Search Produces Specialists
He said Russia's organized
search for and encouragement of
talented young people is paying
off in more specialists in scientific
fields than are being produced in
the United States.
"Ability and brains are national.
assets," he said, "and must be
utilized."
One of the first steps in im-
proving our science education pro-.
gram, Prof. Goldberg suggested, is
increasing public awareness, not
only to get support but also to in-
crease the incentive of prospective
science students.
Asks More Science Teaching
He said also the United States
must stop the "dilution of cur-
riculum," and increase the teach-
ing of science and mathematics.
He explained this could be done
with little harm to the study of
humanities, but might replace
such courses as Home Economics
and Group Living,. which can be
taught at home.
However, Prof. Goldberg warned
ticularly the neglect of other
branches of learning. He said
moral principles have become im-
portant military weapons, and
therefore there is still great need
for psychologists and sociologists.

Setting Emphasizes Poetry
In 'Desire Under The Elms'

Free Opera
To"Be Given,
By Students
"Gianni Schicchi," a one-act'
opera, will be presented as a
Christmas candle-light service by
the music school in cooperation
with the speech department, at
4:15 p.m. Dec. 18 and 19 in the
Lydia Mendelssohn Theatre.
There will be no admission
charge "because this is a short
afternoon opera and we just want
to make something very festive
and intimate," the director, Prof.
Josef Blatt of the music school,
commented.
Puccini's comic opera was
translated into English by Prof.
Blatt. Jack :Zei, Grad, will por-
tray Gianni Schicchi while his
daughter Lauretta will be played
by Janet Ast, '58M, on Wednesday
and Bette Grotegut, Grad, on
Thursday.
Preceding the performance,
three selections from the 16th
century "Sacrae Symphoniae" by
Giovanni Gabrieli will be played
from the organ loft by members
of the Symphony Orchestra under
the direction of Josef Blatt.

Eugene O'Neill's "Desire Under
the Elms" at 8 ,p.m. Thursday in
the Lydia Mendelssohn Theatre.
The expressionistic setting of a
