Good Or Evil? . .
O NE OF THE most vital forces in pub-
lic life today is advertising. It per-
m eates our lives from the kindergarten onward.
Io single factor exerts so much influence on so
mpany people. Therefore, since it is so omnipres-
ent and all-important, it must be a social problem
significant enough to merit public attention.
Advertising is one of the most effective educa-
tional devices of our day. It is a new field, a
twentieth century by-product of modern busi-
ness. Today, before our children can read, they
see and are affected by picture advertising. Thus,
even by the time they enter kindergarten, modern
children have been conditioned by and exposed
to advertising, and a far-reaching pre-school
eduction has begun. Whether this education
is good or bad is a moot question.
Surely advertising has many good effects. If its
sole purpose were to create in the minds of the
yqung, vivid pictures of life around them, cer-
tainly the advertising medium would not be in
vain. Then, throughout the formative schoo
years advertising continues to play an important
educational role. It makes children conscious of
what goes oan in the world and informs them
profitably from a consumer point of view. More-
over, not only dpes advertising contribute to child
and adolescent matter when they refuse to digest
a weighty treatise on the same subject. This is,
of course, due to the inherent laziness of the
adult mind..
Then, since advertising is such an important
factor in the life of today, it must be handled
wisely. It must be truthfully, lucidly written. The
main pitfall in our international advertising is
its fallacious presentation. Facts are distorted be-
yond all proportion to make effective copy. Face
.creams are said to give you a new skin, pink and
bllemish-free, like that of Mrs. Got-Bucks. Drugs
are offered as panaceas for all ills. Even Federal
laws have been unable to prevent gross misrepre-
sentation and distortion of advertising copy.
Therefore, we face today the problem of the
social waste of advertising. One of the most
efficacious mediums of communication to the
public of all ages, all educations, is being laid
waste by unscrupulous or lazy copy writers, who,
seeking the obvious, easiest ways to impress the
public with their commodities, resort to tawdry
misleading copy of inferior quality. Our problem
is to raise public advertising to the heights it

In Safety
The teaching of safety is most effective when
integrated with other subjects and supplemented
by one period of direct teaching if possible, Miss
F. Louise Cottrell of the New' York University
Center for Saftey Education told members of
several classes in the School of Education yes-
Miss Cottrell spoke here in conjunction with
a special program in safety education being spon-
sored by the Center, with representatives speaking
at 47 colleges and universities throughout the
Such departments as physical education and
industrial arts can take over much of the actual
safety program within the grade and high schools,
Miss Cottrell declared, but cannot give the time
to give a broad program of instruction in safety.

In the Exhibition of Latin-American Art now
being held in the Galleries of the Rackham Build-
ing, perhaps the most unusual room is that in
which paintings of the Colonial Period are dis-
played. Examples of the art of Peru, Mexico, and
Brazil have been assembled, giving an idea of the
products of artists of the sixteenth, seventeenth,
and eighteenth centuries in those Latin-American
This exhibit is being sponsored by the Institute
of Latin-American Studies and has been organ-
ized from works loaned by museums, private in-
dividuals, and artists throughout the country. It
is going to last until July 25.
The materials displayed have been classified
generally into three main periods: PreColum-
bian, Colonial and Contemporary.
The six paintings from Peru are a part of a
large collection belonging to Mrs. Frank Bar-
rows F1reyer, now of Denver. Mrs. Freyer is of a
family which has claim to a long Sanish an-
cestry. She visited Peru in 1920 with her husband,
Captain F'reyer of the United States Navy, who
was sent on a Government mission to reorganize
the Peruvian Navy. At that time Mrs. Freyer
formed this collection, which also includes splen-
did examples of furniture, and since bringing it
to this country she has had the whole collection
exhibited in several leading museums. The Uni-
versity is especially fortunate in being able to
include in this exhibit some of these little-known
works of art.
The paintings are brilliant with gold and color,
particularly in the costumes, and present many
unusual features. The works are mainly religious
subjects and were painted either by Spanish
artists who came to Peru, or by Peruvian artists
taught in Spain or influenced by Spaniards com-
ing to their country. There is a mingling of.
Spanish, Flemish and Incan styles and tradi-
tions, with some Byzantine or Oriental influences
entering through Sp;anish contacts. One particu-
larly appealing painting shows the Virgin dressed
as an Inca Princess, naive and thoroughly charm-
ing in its unusual interpretation. Our Lady of
Victory of Malaga shows a magnificent treat-
ment of design and splendor of detail. An inter-
esting note in'the Adoration of the Magi is the
use of llamas instead of camels and the guards
dressed as Indian boys.
Mrs. Freyer feels that her collection of paint-
ings will help to create in this country a better
understanding of the splendid culture of the
Colonial Period in Peru, with the fruitful inter-
mingling of the ideas and culture of Europe with
the existing civilization of the Incas.
The paintings of the seventeenth-and eigh-
teenth-century Mexico are equally important,
and are loaned to our Ann Arbor exhibition by
the Philadelphia Museum of Art. These eight
paintings are only a few from the large Lamborn
Collection of that Museum, collected in the years
1881 and 1883 by Robert H. Lamborn during a
visit to Mexico. The works are painted on can-
vas or copper panels; the artists were many of
them monks. The Saint Augustine was done by
an artist actually born in Spain, Balthasar
Echave, who was one of the first Spanish artists
of the early seventeenth century to go to Italy
izing safety programs within the schools. She
prescribed letting each community and each
school meet its own peculiar safety problems,
using something from all of the various safety
methods now used.
The bicycle problem is more serious in the
United States than is realized, Miss Cottrell
said. She pointed out that use of bicycles has
about doubled in the last few years and that
accidents have increased proportionately. In 1935"
330 persons were killed in bicycle ;ccidents and
13,000 were injured. In 1937 the sale of bicycles
doubled, and deaths from accidents consequently
totaled 810. Over 32,000 persons were injured on
bicycles in that year. She recommended a patrol
for every school in a large city and showed how
safety education had been effective in reducing
the number of accidents.
Research on the field of safety training has
disclosed the fact that young persons have more
accidents than older people, Miss Cottrell said,
explaining this as the result of the fact that the
younger persons take more chances and are not
as careful as older persons. It has also been dis-
covered that pay-day is tied up with the distribu-

tion and number of accidents, she said.
A third conclusion that has been reached as
the result of study is that certain persons are
more prone to accidents than others, mainly be-
cause of faulty coordination. All of these fact,
have been effective in indicating new methods of
attack on the safety program.
In conclusion Miss Cottrell pointed out that
the teaching of safety education through text
books has been handicapped by the lack of uni-
formity in laws of different states. Most states
now subject bicycles to the same regulations as
automobiles, she said, and there is a further
tendency in some regions toward a greater uni-
formity of regulatory laws as between the states.
Recalling the President's toast to George and
Elizabeth, a New Jersey woman reminds us that

been a cause for impeachment five years ago."

and to come under the influence of artists there.
He later came to Mexico, and his son was also
an artist of note in the new country. Spanish
influence is strongly evidenced, for the works
of Velasquez and Murillo were well-known to
the artists of Mexico. Miguel Cabrera was a Zapo-
tecan Indian born in Oaxaca, while Miguel de
Herrera was an Augustinian friar. The anony-
mous portrait of the famous Mexican poetess,
Sor Juana Ines de la Cruz, a member of a religi-
ous order, who lived during the second half of
the seventeenth century, is a very fine character
The painting loaned by the Detroit Insti-
tute of Arts, A Visit to a Ruined Chapel, is by
the Dutch artist Frans Post, who accompanied
the Count Maurice of Nassau Siegen to Brazil
during his eight-year period of Dutch occupa-
tion of that country. This work of the mid-sev-
enteenth century is one of the earliest landscapes
of America. The fine folio volume on loan from
the General Library of the University was pub-
lished in 1647 by Blaeu in Amsterdam. It relates
the history .f Count Maurice in Brazil and is
important in connection with our exhibition be-
cause the fifty-six large etched illustrations were
done from drawings made by Frans Post in
Brazil, and show an extraordinary variety in sub-
ject, with landscapes, marines, maps, and battle
scenes, and giving an insight into the architecture
of the country as/well as the richness of the
country itself.

Today's column describes what happened in
the League ballroom before and after Alice Rydell
wrote some paragraphs under the head "Thru the
Looking Glass" telling us just what we can and
cannot wear to a League dance.
. * *
Jerry crept into the ballroom on his hands and
knees, pushing the inevitable peanut with his
nose. Suddenly he felt a thrill of alarm and
quickly swept the room with a glance, putting the
sweepings in a little pile beside the orchestra.
There before him was Wishwumple Warple,
carrying his head in his hand.
"A trifle informal, this habit of carrying your
head in your hands at a League dance, isn't it?"
Jerry inquired.
"Yes," Wishwumple Warple admitted shyly.
"But I like it. The blood makes such pretty pat-
terns on the floor. Sometimes I feel sorry that I
have only one head to give for the League dances."
Together they went over to the other side of
the room where Tommy Prerevolution, a capital-
istic soul, was following the suggestion to be
printed in Thru the Looking Glass next week. He
owned white suits-linen, panama, palm beach
and what have you-and had followed Alice's
advice literally. They were out of the moth balls
and on the dance floor. However they failed to
make him handsome as Alice said they would,
probably because he failed to wear any of them
and contented himself with a triangle of zebra
hide. All three, Tommy, Jerry and Wishwumple
were silent, intent on playing hopscotch on the
linen, panama, palm beach and what have you
suits. Sometimes they dodged strangers who were
cutting initials into each other's legs or paring
toenails but mostly they just played. Every mo-
ment or so someone-probably Philip W. Buchen
-would scream "Read The Daily Classified."
That was all. Nothing more.
Jerry sat there, munching a trifle moistly on
his caviar and flicking imaginary specks from his
immaculate white suit. A beautiful blond creature
sat beside him.
"Shall we dance?" she finally asked shyly.
"No, dear," he answered. "I shall stay here
flicking imaginary specks from my immaculate
white suit. You go dance."
Over in the corner Wishwumple Warple III
slowly exhaled wispy, white opium smoke as he
square-danced. His partner looked up at him

with fiery eyes, probably because he kept flicking
ashes into them.
"Did you," she asked, "Did you read the
Chicago Tribune this morning?"
"Yes," he said. "Horrible, isn't it, the way
they've gone to the left. I actually think they'll
split with the Silver .Shirts any day now. And,
please dear, don't say 'read'. It reminds me so of
"Terribly sorry," she said. "Terribly, terribly
"That's all right. It just disconcerted me. After
all, those people can live on sugared pecan rolls
if there wasn't any bread."
Tommy Tommy came up.
"Hello," he said, passing by.
Wishwumple looked at him with longing in his,
eyes. "I wish I were a brilliant conversationalist
like Tommy Tommy," he said.
Suddenly Philip W. Buchen walked over. He'd
read Alice's column about how to dress and act at
a League Party also. He'd learned how to act
from it too.
"My darling," he was softly murmuring into
his girl's shell pink ear, "Have you read those
perfectly wonderful Daily classifieds?"
