At The Uiversity
S UMMETIME at the University con-
notes more than studying. Summer-
time stands for the opportunity to get acquaint-
ed with men and women from all over the world,
to enter into all types of activities, to learn how
to' dance, how to play golf, tennis, badminton
and many other sports.
Center of summer social activities is the
League, under the direction of Miss Ethel Mc-
Cormick. I Ire, square dancing and country danc-
ing are taught by Henry Ford's teacher, Benja-
min Lovett. Miss McCormick teaches the fox--
trot, waltz and other dances to beginners an
the rhumba and tango, to the more advanced.
Bridge tournaments are held weekly as are
bridge lessons at a small charge.
Every Friday and Saturday night, special eve-
nings are held at the League. Students may come
in couples or stag. Hostesses are ever ready to
help acquaint people. Floor shows are often a
feature of the evening. Tea dances are given
every Wednesday afternoon free of charge to
students. The League is also the scene of many
lunches, teas, and parties of various organiza-
tions on campus such as the Michigan Dames and
the Faculty Women's Club.
For those desiring recreation, the Men's Intra-
aural Building and the Women's Athletic Build-
ing offer untold opportunities. Golf, tennis, bad-
minton, swimming, archery, and baseball, are
only a few of the many sports. Tournaments for
both men and women have been started and in
addition much of the equipment needed for these
activities may be rented for a small fee.
Students from countries all over the world
convene at the International Center. Open houses
are held, teas are given to acquaint foreign stu-
aents with students from the United States.
Then there are the German House and the
French House to familiarize those interested in
these foreign languages.-
- Taken as a whole, the University is offering
the student a wealth of opportunity to get out
aid do something. It does not desire grinds but
Well-rounded individuals.

Bazil's- Colonal
Stressing the "absolute derivation of Brazilian
architecture from Portugal," Prof. Robert C.
Smith of the University of Illinois delivered an
illustrated lecture on "Colonial Architecture in
&razil" in the Rackham Auditorium yesterday.
Brought here by the Institute of Latin-Ameri-
can Stuides for its current Symposium on Art
and Architecture, Professor Smith has just been
appointed director of Hispanic in the Library
of Congress, it was announced before the lecture.
Each national group which migrated from
Europe to South America in the era of coloniza-
tion carried its own characteristics across the
-sea to the new continent and these influences
were reflected in the architecture of the period,
Professor Smith explained. Consequently the
early Brazilian structures were bare and simple
a:Iongside the ornate forms which the Spanish
imparted to Mexican architecture. 'k
Virtually no indigenous influences are reflected
in Brazilian architecture, he pointed out. The
culture possessed by the Indians was decidedly
inferior and the Brazilians largely imitated the

-from the University Biological Station
DOUGLAS LAKE, July 7.-"Bands were play-
ing and flags were flying in Madrid," and the
University Biological Station did indeed resemble
Sunny Spain when matadors and fair senoritas
gathered in the Pteris Gardens Club House
last Saturday night for the annual masquerade
party. The program opened with a pantomime of
"Ferdinand" with Tex Hendrix acting as narra-
tor, and Ed Sturgeon playing the part of the
"bull with the delicate ego." Mrs. Funk was the
"sympathetic mother, even though she was a
cow" and Boyd Walker and Bob Lewert "ran
and jumped and butted their heads together"
while Bill Katz, John Funk, Wade Hooper, and
Louie Kuitert made stunning matadors.
After the program Dr. Hungerford, Mrs. Welch,
and Mrs. Cort acted as judges of the costume
parade. Helen Serfling as a Spanish beggar was
orne of the hits of the evening, and Professor
Sparrow of the Botany Department was pro-
nounced authentically Mexican; but the prize
was finally awarded to Barbara Benedict, who
came as a Spanish cavalier, and to her two
room-mates, Frances Hubbs and Helen Hay,
who were decked out as senoritas in everything
from wire clothes hangers to the rugs from the
cabin floor. After the judging, every one munched
peanuts and danced to the music of the camp
victrola, broadcast over the P.A. system by Master
of Ceremonies Jack Dendy.
Seventeen Advanced Ornithology students left
camp at four o'clock last Sunday morning for
Wilderness State Park, where a fishing tug picked
them up and took them to Shoe Island, Hog
Island, and Hat Island to study the gulls and
to make collections. On Hat Island an observa-
tion blind was erected, and there Dr. Pettingill
remained until Thursday to take pictures and
make records.
Sunday afternoon found Al Gleason calling
old fashioned square dances in the Club House.
Ella Heinke; Wilmer Stockard, Ed Phillips, and
Betty Chandler did "Alimen left" and "swing your
partner" with more enthusiasm than grace, while
Swede 'Harry and Peggy Oliver did the "grand
right and left" amid gales of laughter at them-
selves and their neighbors.
Tuesday, July 4, the traditional games were
played on the beach. While the youngsters of
the camp hunted candy kisses, the married men
fron Blissville demonstrated their superiority
over the bachelors from Manville in the Tug o'
War, despite the gallant efforts of Gene Ken-
aga and John Lash. The married women, cap-
tained by Dorothy Campbell, then completed the
rout by defeating Dottie Cort's Ladyville team
in the difficult feat of pouring water from the
obs rvation tower into a bucket. The honor of
Manville was redeemed, however, by foresters
En Sturgeon and Dutch Leinhardt who won the
boat-race going away.
Hamburgers and lemonade proved welcome to
the weary -contestants and all gathered, ice-
cream conesin hand, to watch the egg-throwing
contest. Gene Roelofs and Sam Held won the
prize 'for keepingtheir eggs unbroken, but not
before Fred Bromund and Chris Zarafonetis got
egg shampoos. The glorious fourth was brought
to a successful end by a baseball game between
the proletarians, or camp employees, and the
plutocrats, or just plain students. Eagle-eyed D,
Stockard called them close, as the plutocrats
won 11-9 by a seventh inning rally lead by Pitcher
Walt Sylvester.
Plans are now in progress under the chair-
manship of Tony Cordell for an "Information
Please" Party tonight. The program will be
broadcast by Dr. Melvln Griffiths, and "experts"
will be chosen from the audience by means of a
preliminary test on music, biology, and general
information., Everyone is reading 10 pages of
the dictionary, before going to bed this week!
were more elaborate by the end of the 18th cen-
tury, more comparable to the churches of
Lisbon in Portugal.
Not until the end of the 17th century, however,
did the first sign of truly normal building in
Brazil appear, he declared. The Dutch invasion

halted building until 1760 and the ensuing high
cost of living left its mark for years to follow.
When it did appear, it resembled European coun-
ter-reformation style-cold, and austere with
resemblance to earlier forms chiefly manifest
in upper structures.
By 1695 rectilinear lines were roughly taking
the form of the Roman Triumphal Arch, Pro-
fessor Smith declared. By the beginning of the
18th century Brazil had produced perfect ex-
amples 'of the Counter-reformation style in gran-
deur and majesty. However they were still be-
hind the times, he pointed out, since the mother
church was erected in the middle of the 15th
century in Europe.
Indigenous influences are reflected in the sub-
stitution of screens and gratings for glass win-
dows (due to climate), he said, while repercus-
sions of Moorish influence in Portugal carried
over in balconies with their accompanying lat-
tice work.
It was not until the beginning of the 19th
century, he explained, that the neo-classic archi-
teeture swept in predominance in Brazil.

'Gown & Qown
Nurse)--It started in painful simplicity. The
managing editor came up and said:
"Stan, how about playing on The Daily base-
ball team?"
Frankly, I was a trifle doubtful. A lineup in-
cluding such athletes as Debs Harvey, Ethel
Norbeg, Veitch Purdom, Francis McMahon,
Ellen Jones, and Paul Park very possibly might
not win an undue number of contests. However,
he reassured me. "In the first place," he said,
"Dad hires the referee and in the second place
I have arranged for Milo Sukup, Varsity out-
fielder; Ed Frutig, football star; Doug Hayes,
veteran quarter-miler, and a few other letter-
winners to turn editorial writers for the after-
"Will you start me?" I asked cleverly. Captains
have a peculiar trick of shunting me off as water
boy or spigot man. I didn't even make the starting
line-up at the last Sphinx party, although after
the second keg I did get on the field long enough
to carry away the second-baseman.
"Cross my heart," he said.
So not unmindful of the time I made two
hits in a single afternoon when playing with the
Eberbach School Third Grade Eagles, I accepted
and immediately sought out Mr. Edward Frutig,
a brawny gentleman who serves as my circle of
acquaintances in the athletic world.
"How," I inquired with a certain intensity,
"does one train?"
He curled a contemptuous lip and said "Op
beer, black coffee and cigarettes. You should
be in perfect shape."
I took his advice and trained religiously, con-
centrating on the beer and making sure I didn't
overdo the black coffee and cigarettes.
Came the game. Frankly, an important story
almost kept me from taking part but the veteran
captain had it fixed with the head waiter not to
serve me until afterthe game, so I decided to
play. On the field, things ran something less
than smoothly. The referee promptly forgot that
our captain's father hired him and spent the
afternoon shouting "Strike" whenever I came
near the plate. Also, our team's support was dis-
appointing. When we came up, the fans fres
quently shouted "C'mon, Reds." Naturally The
Daily team took the thing as encouragement
meant for them. Our pride received a blow when
we found the opposing team was known as the
Tappan Reds!
These Tappan Reds; usually well informed
circles report, are something less than amateur..
Certainly there is an inexplicable resemblance
between the first baseman and Joe DiMaggio.
Also, while casting no aspersions on anyone, I
must say the pitcher started quite distinctly
when I asked if he wasn't really Bob Feller.
At the plate, I had some little difficulty, being
under the impression that if I leaped backwards
with a shocked expression the impression would
be conveyed that the ball was so far inside it had
barely escaped maiming me. I showed consider-
able Thespianic ability in leaping backward nine
times with the net result that I struck out thrice.
But in the field things were different! The first
ball which came out was travelling at consider-
able speed so I avoided it while several gentle-
men scampered around the bases. The second
time the ball came it was in the air. I have se.
several baseball movies produced by MGM, so
I knew precisely what to do. I scampered to the
left and vaguely thrust my gloved hand upward.
For a moment nothing happened and then sud-
denly something fell into it. I stood there ex-
changing looks of mutual surprise with the ball
until someone shouted "three outs makes an in-
ning, Swinton. Get the *?&*! in here."
So I went to bat. This time the pitcher, whose
conscience had been troubling him, walked me.
I bowed graciously and went to first base and a
little beyond. The pitcher frowned on this, how-
ever, and I leaped into the dust around first base,
ripping a few ounces of bone and blood loose
and ripping my trousers. Then I stood up and
looked around for praise. Instead I saw Mr.
"Aren't those my new pants you just slid into
first with?" he asked. He looked a trifle grim

about the whole thing.
I looked down, saw he was right. They were
his pants I was wearing and Mr. Frutig turned
out to be a very large gentleman and an excellent
fighter. I do not mean to imply by this that I
will not be out there on the field when the next
game arrives. I will be-second seat from the left
in the pressbox. In the meantime I've clipped a
large number of photographs showing the gifts
his teammates gave Lou Gehrig when HE retired
from the baseball world. Hope they get the idea!
Solve Manpower Shortage
Jews between the ages of 18 and 35 were sum-
moned June 30 to report for work on Germany's
double-lane superhighways. Jews hitherto were
forced from all occupations bringing them to-
gether with Aryans. The order reflected a serious
shortage of manpower in Germany.
