Linguistic Group
Will Hear Fries
Talk On Hebrew

The News Of The World As Illustrated In Associated Press Pictures




Hebrew as a modern language will
provide material for two of the four
lectures announced by Prof. CharlesI
C. Fries, the director, for the coming,
week's program of the Linguistic In-
Dr. Zellig Harris of the University
of Pennsylvania will discuss Wednes-
day evening "The Revival of Hebrew"
and will continue Friday evening with
Linguistic Changes and Tendencies
in the New Hebrew." He has spoken
previously on the institute series, hav-'
ing talked on "The Origin of the Al-
phabet" earlier in the summer.
For the Tuesday luncheon confer-
ence Dr. Fries has secured the serv-
ices of Prof. George Kennedy of Yale
University. Professor Kennedy, a
member of the summer faculty of the
Institute, will tell about "An Experi-
ment in Chinese Language Teaching."
Thursday noon the topic, "Inves-
tigating Vowel Length in French,"
will be presented by Dr. Pierre De-
lattre of Wayne University, Detroit.
New Exhibit Of

Faculty Concert
Prof. Wassily Besekirsky, violinist,
and Prof. Joseph Brinkman, pianist
will present a sonata recital at 8:30
p.m. Tuesday, in Hill Auditorium, as
the next concert in the Faculty Con-
cert series.
They will open their program with
the Brahms "Sonata in A Major,
Opus 100," one of the three sonatas
which Brahms wrote for violin and
piano. Its three movements are "Al-
legro amabile," "Andante tranquillo,"
and "Allegretto grazioso."
This will be followed by the "Se-
guida Espanola," by Joachim Nin, a
modern Spanish composer This suite
was originally written as a soprano
solo, and the arrangement which Pro-
fessors Besekirsky and Brinkman will
play, done by the composer, has just
recently been published. The per-
formance Tuesday night will be its
first in Ann Arbor. The suite is writ-
ten in the traditionally Spanish
rhythms. In the first movement,
"Vieja Castilla," the composer in-
troduces a sixteenth century folk
tune. The other movements are
"Murciana," "Catalana," and "An-
Professors Besekirsky and Brink-
man will play the Schubert "Fan-
taisie, Opus 159," to close the pro-
gram. This piece is considered one
of the greatest in ensemble literature.
Although it is not written strictly in
form, it consists of an introduction,,
followed by an allegro movement, with
a set of variations as a second section,
and a lively finale movement.

pects of Chinese culture," Professor
Plumer said. "First, for philosophical
and religious aspects; second, for
daily life and material culture, and
third, for a demonstration of the art
of the stone cutter, developed here to
a remarkable degree.
"The sites of the original monu-
ments from which the rubbings were
made are scattered all over China,
mostly in the north, but stretching
from the easterly tip of Korea to
Ch'eng-tu in the west. The prints
were made by hand, by means of
damp paper pressed on the monu-
ment, deriving a. very accurate ink
Four Rubbings Groups
There are four chronological
groups of the rubbings, Professor
Plumer pointed out; the Wu family
tombs of the Han dynasty, from 206
B.C. to 220 A.D.; the Buddhist sculp-
tures from single monuments or re-
liefs from cave temple walls and ste-
lae of the Six Dynasty period, 386 to
589 A.D., which includes rubbings
from the famous female donors of
Lungmen, in recent years completely
destroyed; the T'ang designs from the
Great Wild Goose Pagoda of Sian, 618
to 906 A.D.; and the Sixteen Iohan
disciples of Buddha, copies of paint-
ings long since lost, of about the 16th
The Chien, or Temmoku tea bowls,
together with' a number of kiln-site
fragments, will be on exhibit in the
North Gallery. They form the largest
exhibit of Temmoku work ever pre-
sented in America. "The Chinese are
the best potters in the world," Profes-
sor Plumer said, and the Temmoku
bowls are among their finest work."
. Proves Common, Source
The purposes of this exhibit, he
said, are to present as art the whole
range of Temmoku tea bowls, to prove
the common source for the giant
bowls, to differentiate between the
genuine Temmoku and contemporary
imitations, and to end an argument
which has long existed among schol-
ars as to the place the bowls came
from. Professor Plumer has collected
actual kiln site material to effectually
settle the dispute.
The bowls are all from the Sung
age, 960 to 1280 A.D. They are ex-
tremely popular in Japan, according
to Professor Plumer, where tea-drink-
ing amounts almost to a fetish, con-
tests being held in the sport, and
where the Temmoku bowls are re-
garded with reverence.
The textiles from the East Indies
which form the third major part of
the exhibit, include colorful blankets
from Burma, examples of tie-dyeing
from Cambodia and of the batik pro-
cess of Java. The latter is a method
by which desigs are blocked out in
Ceremonial skirts from Bali and
other islands and Buddhist priest
robes from Japan are also included,
as well as cloths of various kinds1
from Siam, and Sumatra, of which
two particular groups, the Abors and
Mishmis are represented.
Probably the most outstanding ar-
ticle in the entire exhibit is a great
Han rubbing of a giant embracing a
bear cub, Professor Plumer remarked.
It is very large, and remarkably clear
and accurate.
The hours of the exhibit have been
extended because of numerous re-
quests, and it will now be open to the
public until 6 pim. instead of only till
4:30 p.m. as previously, every day
except Sunday.
