individual programs will be sold.
In "The Childhood of Maxim Gor-
ky", young Gorky is played by Al-
yosha Lyarsky, a Moscow school-
boy selected after a long search by
director Mark Donskoi. Lyarsky was
chosen not only because of his re-
semblance to pictures of Gorky at
that age, but also because of his
possession of the genius' serious at-
tentiveness and .sensitivity. Donskoi
filmed the scenes of Gorky and his
chums by explaining the problem to
them and shooting the sequence im-
mediately and only once, so as to re-
cord the spontaneity of the moment

rather than a false emotion develop-
ed by much rehearsal.
In the role of Gorky's sympathetic
grandomther is People's Artist V.O.
Massalitinova, who spent ten years
in the preparation of her part. Long
before production was started on the
film but when cinema people were
considering a Gorky biography she
had the ambition to do the part and
at one time Gorky himself told her
that she could well play it.
M.K. Troyanovsky plays the part
of Gorky's grandfather, a petty tyr-
ant who nevertheless possessed rare
flashes of warm human feeling.
Other well-known Russian actors
have the remaining roles.
"The Childhood of Maxim Gorky"
was based on Gorky's biography "My
Childhood", English sub-titles are
included in the film.
Foreign Student
Increase 1NToted
B y Prof. Nelson
Foreign students attending the
Summer Session have been affected
in various ways by the European
conflict, Prof. J. Raleigh Nelson, di-
rector of the International Center,
reported in an interview yesterday.
There has been a marked increase
of advanced students from Latin
American countries who normally go
to Europe, Professor Nelson cited.
Many of these students coming from
the Pan-American republics and
Canada are Rockefeller Fellows en-
gaged in graduate work, he pointed
With the conflict spreading and
intensifying in the Mediterranean
after Italy's entrance into the war,
Near Eastern students have been
able to maintain only irregular com-
munication with their families and
friends at home, Professor Nelson
stated. The number of Turkish stu-
dents has been augmented by the
withdrawal by their government of
all Turkish students enrolled in Eu-
ropean universities at the outbreak
of the hostilities last September.
Approximately 700 were sent to the
United Staites and about 20 to the
University during the past year, he
Students from Syria, Palestine and
Iraq have also increased in numbers
here, Professor Nelson emphasized,
because of the extension of the ex-
change student plan at the American
University of Beirut.

In contrast to rising tax rates of
the federal government, Ann Arbor's
summer property tax rate will be the
lowest since 1921, City Assessor Her-
bert W. Crippen announced yester-
The 1940 tax rate of $8.67 per
$1,000 valuation will be 43 cents
lower than the rate of $9.10 last year.
The assessed valuation of the city,
quoted at $39,200,120, is an increase
of $589,475 over last year. The in-
crease is largely the result of build-
ing expansion about the city.

(By The Associated Press)
DETROIT, June 26.-Henry Ford
said today that his plans have not
been altered in any way by the deci-
sion of the National Defense Com-
mission to discontinue negotiations
with his company for the mass pro-
duction of Rolls-Royce aviatian en-
"In other words," he said in an
interview, "the preliminary work we
have done to be prepared to swing
into volume output of the motors for
the United States Government, when
and if it desires them, will go on
without interruption. We will be
ready to go any time the United
States Government says the word."
Commission Announces
The Defense Commission an-
nounced in Washington last night
that Ford's refusal to manufacture
the engines for the British Govern-
ment had forced cancellation of plans
to have the Ford Company make the
power plants.
"To undertake to make aviation
engines or any other form of war
munitions for any foreign govern-
ment," Ford said today, "would be a
step toward getting this country into
war. I want to keep this country
out of war.
]Planes Only For Defense
"When I offered four weeks ago
to make airplanes on a volume pro-
duction basis I distinctly said I would
do so for the United States Govern-
ment for defensive purposes only.
You will recall that I said at that
time that great care would have to
be taken to see that a gigantic'de-

fensive armament did not become an
'offensive' one; I said also that great
pressure would be brought to force
us into war.
Pursuit Planes Needed
"I was advised that our greatest
defensive need was for pursuit air-
planes and I became convinced that
we could provide these in huge num-
bers any foreign nation with bellig-
erent designs would think twice be-
fore attempting any attack upon
this country."
Ford indicated that the discus-
sions during the last four weeks re-
garding his proposal to put airplane
manufacture on a volume basis had
been confined solely to the idea of
making engines rather than the com-
pleted plane.
