Chinese Painter Chang
Tells Rackham Group
Of War Experience
Chang Shu-Chi, one of the great-
est contemporary water color artists
in China, yesterday told how he pain-
ted his famous scroll of "The Hun-
dred Doves" while Jap dive-bombers
flew low over Chungking and "drop-
ped tons of explosives on the city.
Behind his simple statement that
"no dove was killed in the bombing"
was a full knowledges of long suffer-
ing in China and a deep belief that
someday war will leave his country,
allowing the people once more to fol-
low the peaceful philosophy pre-
scribed by their sage, Confucius.
The celebrated water color artist
left his home, his gardens and his
classes at the National Central Uni-
versity in Nanking last September to
come to the United States. He plan-
ned to return after a short stay
Caught by War
But American entrance into the
war caught him in New York and
postponed a return trip to China.
Since then he has been traveling in
this country and exhibiting his
amazing water colors.
Before a small group of interested
observers yesterday, Chang Shu-Chi
demonstrated his technique on the
mezzanine floor 'of the Rackham
Building. On the walls hung many of
his paintings, done on scrolls in the
Chinese classical tradition. In fifteen
minutes, he had finished a rapid and
brilliantly-colored picture of birds
and flowers. He worked with quick,
deft strokes and used only one brush.
Chang Shu-Chi spoke briefly of
devastated cities in Eastern China
where Japanese planes had found
easy targets. He explained that uni-
versities were all being moved West.
"My university has been moved
fromn Nanking to Chungking," he
said. The buildings are in very poor
condition but the spirit of the stu-
dents is wonderful. 6,000 students
are enrolled now, much more than
He said he had taught bird and
flower painting at the National Cen-
tral'University for eleven years. "For
five years I had to work with a real
subject before me. Now everything
comes from my own imagination."
Talks To Loretta Young
Chang Shu-Chi spoke English in a
broken accent and joked about it.
"Once Loretta Young talked to me,"
he said. "Since I couldn't understand
her, I was afraid to open my mouth.
So I just looked at her. That was
pleasant enough."
Of the United States he had noth-
ing but superlatives-except for our
modern art. "I don't understand your
surrealism," he said. "But I hope to
come to' your country again."
He plans to spend the rest of the
year traveling in the United States
and Canada before he returns to
China and his work with Ministry of
Educatioii there.



Occasionally in the letters and
other missives from men in the serv-
ice we find some amusing gems. From
Pvt. Alvin Dann, University gradu-
ate and former editorial director of
The Daily, now receiving basic
training before entrance into intel-
ligence service, comes this one.
The following is a direct quote
from a bulletin explaining to the
soldiers the meaning and purpose
of 'Our War.' This as you will see
is about the Aleutians. "the Ale-
tians are islands. The Aleutians
are many islands. They are sur-
rounded by water. All islands are
surrounded by water."
Here is another. "There is a
desert in Egypt and Libya. A des-
ert is all sand. It is sunny and hot
in the desert. The Axis and the
United Nations fight in the sand.
They fight in the hot sun."

Amazing, isn't it?

David McClosky, instructor in the
School of Music, will present a song
recital on the regularly scheduled
University broadcast at 3:15 today.
The program will originate in Mor-
ris Hall and will be radiocast over
station WJR in Detroit.
Mr. McClosky has selected the fol-
lowing songs for his program: "Bor-
der Ballad" by Cowen; "If My Song
Had Wings," by Hahn; an old sea
song, "The Crocodile," an aria from
Verde's Rigoletto, "Pari Siamo," andj
Jerome Kern's "Old Man River."
He will be accompanied by Joan
Stevens, and George Irwin will an-
nounce the show.
The Children's Theatre show at
9 a.m. Saturday will be an original
show by Joy Wright and David Nor-
ten. The plot involves a little girl
who dreams she takes a trip to the
moon, and the program is entitled
"Lady In the Moon." Essentially a
musical-dramatic show, the program
includes songs written especially for
it by Miss Wright. Mr. Norten col-
laborated on the score.
Another in the United Nations
series of shows will be presented
immediately following the children's
show at 9:15 a.m. tomorrow. This
program is entitled "Alaska."

Our native eastern Halibut, one of the largest of our
eastern specie is emphatically a cold water fish -- found
in water varying from 32 to 45 degrees. They are large
mouthed, sharp toothed and are extremely active when
in pursuit of their prey, feeding on cod, 'haddock and
Delicious in flavor, the meat is pure white and very
flaky. Marinated in a bath of lemon juice, broiled to a
nice brown and garnished with parsley and lemon,
Allenel Halibut makes a most tempting dish.
