Professor of Latin Cites Grecian
Idea of Music as Connected
With Other Arts, Life.
Last Summer University Speaket
Proffers Fragments From
Early Musical Works.
"Music was viewed by the Greeks
as a powerful moral element which
had for its aim the purest harmony
of the soul and inspired men to
perform noble and worthy deeds
while music among the Romans
was for entertainment and luxur-
ious enjoyment," said Prof. Bruno
Meinecke of the Greek and Latin
department in an illustrated lec-
ture on "Music Among the Greeks
and Romans" delivered yesterday
afternoon in the Natural Science
Euphony Reflected Culture
"The Greek idea of music lead to
an intimate connection between
tonal art and the every day life of
the Greeks," continued Professor
Meinecke after .pointing out how
the culture of the Greeks and Ro-
mans was reflected in the euphony,
flexibility and rhythm of their
languages. The artistic sense of
the Greeks was of a plastic char-
acter. It was also of an objective
nature and did not run into the
fantastic. This idea is traceable in
the prevalence of melodic outline
and terse rhythm.
"Poems among the Greeks were
written to be sung," said Professor
Meinecke. But whereas among the
Israelites music and poetry served
tod establish a relationship with
Jehovah, among the Greeks re-
ligion developed from their art. It
is therefore truly said that the
great poets of Greece created the
fods of the Greeks.
Had Restricted Field
"It is true that Greek music had
on the whole a restricted sphere of
action, but it was none the less
one of the most potent factors in
the whole history of music. Greek
music influenced the whole of the
Middle Ages and particularly the
16th and 17th centuries. The Greek
mdes were directly responsible for
the early Christian developments
in the form of Ambrosian and
Gregorien modes. Romans, it is
generally conceded by scholars, had
little influence on the development
of the world's music. However,
this is a field where more study
might well be made."
After showing a series of slides
depicting the intimate connection
of music with the other arts and
every day life, Prof Meinecke con-
cluded by explaining that the
sources of our knowledge of ancient
music were literary, epigraphic, and

NANKING, Aug. 13.-Fears that
Nanking, seat of the Nationalists
government, would fall into the

hands of Communists bands arose
today with reports from the coun-
tryside saying alleged Reds'in peas-
ant garb and armed with rifles had
appeared in large numbers 20 miles
away. Nanking was virtually de-
fenseless because few soldiers re-
mained here.
Lack of adequate defense forces
here resulted in uneasiness, as it
was believed the city would be easy
prey for the Reds if they attacked.
The presence of Communists was
reported in several near-by towns.

Summer Session Statistics Show
Enrollment of 136 for
Week-End Courses.
Figures showing 136 persons to
have been registered in the special
public health institutes held on the
campus each week-end-during the
summer term were released from
the Summer Session office here to-
Five individuals attending the
institutes received public health
certificates, it is shown.
Public health nurses were present
in greatest numbers, the report
shows. Sixty-three individuals of
this group attended meetings. The
next most numerous were school
nurses, 19 having registered.
By far the greatest number of
those attending came from Detroit,
the survey indicates. Of the 136,
a total of 69 came from that city.
Ann Arbor was represented by six,
while Saginaw had 10, and thereby
earned second place. Illinois, In-
diana, Ohio, Misouri, and North
Carolina were represented. Wom-.
en constituted the majority of the
audiences of the institutes, there
being 128 of them as compared to
8 men.
Five Mayoral Petitions
Circulated in Detroit
(By Associated Press)
DETROIT, Aug. 13.-Petitions of
five probable candidates for the
mayoralty at the special election
Sept. 9 were in circulation today.
All candidacies are in addition to
that of Mayor Charles Bowles, who
automatically became a candidate
as the result of the election three
weeks ago at which he was recall-
ed from office by a majority of
31,000 votes.
George Engel, former commis-
sioner of civil service, who was re-
fused reappointment by Mayor
Bowles when his term expired last
spring, was the first to anounce
his candidacy.
Others for whom p.etitions are in
circulation are Harold Emmons,
one-time police commissioner, City
Clerk Richard W. Reading, former
Mayor John W. Smith and Judge
Frank Murphy of recorder's court.
Administration forces are said to
be heartened by indications of a
multiplicity of candidates at the
election three weeks hence, in the
belief that the mayor's supporters
will not be easily divided.

ST. LOUIS, Aug. 13.-The world's
longest sustained flight's pilots,
Dale Jackson and Forrest O'Brine
tonight rode the air above Lambert,
St. Louis, field in a cabin mono-
plane, "Greater St. Louis," as cham-
pions once more.
After breaking the world's refuel-
ing endurance flight record at 9:42
a.m., these two veteran sky dwellers
nosed their craft toward a goal of
1,000 hours in the air, at 4:11 p.m.
Jackson and O'Brine had been aloft
561 hours and had surpassed by al-
most 8 hours the record of 553
hours and 40 minutes set in Chica-
go last month by the flying Hunter
brothers of Sparta, Ill.
Congratulations Pour In
Soon after word had .been spread
that "Red" and "Obie" had recap-
tured the record, congratulatory
telegrams began to pour in.
A small crowd cheered lustily,
standing in a dragging line to
watch the "Greater St. Louis"
sweep gracefully over the field
above their heads. The downpour
recalled the evening of July 31 last
y e a r when Jackson and O'Brine
! landed at the same field after 400
hours in the air.
Jackson and O'Brine, talking ov-
er a short-wave transmitter from
the plane, broadcasted greetings to
the crowd.
Flyers Send Message
"Too bad the folks down there
got wet. Tell them not to sit around
in the rain till we get down. We ap-
preciated the demonstration more
than we could tell you. We are fly-
ing at 2400 and the old engine
wants to run away. I guess because
' it is on the home stretch."
The flyers said they did not know
when they would come down, "May-
be tomorrow, next month, or next
year," adding that they might
"stay up until next August."

Showing of Juvenile Classics Is
Made by Extension Service.
Students, faculty members and
townspeople have been invited to
view an exhibition of juvenile
classics at the Library Extension
service, room 312, in the general
library. Those interested may see
the books every day between 8:30
in the morning and 6:30 at night,
except on Saturday afternoons and
Sundays, from August 14 to Aug-
ust 20.
These books range from nursery
rhymes for pre-school aged chil-
dren to books suitable for high
school students, such as "David
Copperfield" and "Lorna Doone."
Each edition was chosen for its
particular distinction and beauty
in make-up and illustration. The
collection was loaned by the Chil-
dren's fund of Michigan, and is
part of the Book Exhibit project
being carried on under the auspices
of the committee on children's
reading of the Michigan Congress
of Parents and Teachers. The col-
letion is availahliforus e in Mieh
