Dumas Malone
Gives American
Culture Lecture
(Continued from Page 1)
evidence of a general westward shift
of cultural leadership, with a nar-
rowing of New England's margin of
superiority, accompanied by a rapid
rise in the north central and Pacific
Climatic considerations, though im-
portant in evaluating regional con-
tributions, are not as important as
a historical interpretation of region-
al excellence or decline, Dr. Malone
emphasized. Citing the environment-
al conditions in the South between
1860-1890 as an example, he pointed
out that the~ generation of that peri-
od felt a definite restriction of op-
portunity. Nevertheless, hehcon-
tinued in defense of the South, the
decline of the South was noticably
less than her decline in social wealth.
Though a man born in a poorer
environment has an equal chance of
success as one born in a wealthier
family, the expansion of this obser-
vation to include regions is not valid,
Dr. Malone cautioned. Though the
poorer individual has access to equal
educational facilities ,his opportun-
ity is nevertheless limited by the rank
of the facilities available in the par-
ticular state or region.
That tale~nt, as well as brawn, fol-
lows the migration of imigrants both
into and within the country is well

borne out by statistics, Dr. Malone
pointed out. Though we are often
wont to regard the static and the
traditional as fostering a more cul-
ture population, he cautioned that
the average ability among the wan-
derers is at least as high as that
among those remaining.
In the compilation of his statistics,
Dr. Malone pointed to two important
compensations in interpretations
which must not be overlooked: First,
the age of the particular locality,
that is, the length of time it has
been settled must be taken into ac-
count, as a community twice as old
should have contributed at least
twice as many men of eminence.
Secondly, and for the same reason,
the total population of the region
must be taken into adjustments.

The "Independence Whirl," an in-
formal dance sponsored by the Wol-
verine Student Co-Operative will be
