.Lecture Series
For Summer
The Inter-Racial Association,
which in the past has been instru-
mental in the sponsorship of speak-
ers, activities and measures inducivej
to the realization of racial unity, has
planned an extensive lecture and
forum series for this summer.
"Techniques for eliminating Racial
Discrimination in Your Community,"
"What Can Teachers do about Racial
Discrimination," "The Church as a
Democratizing Factor," "Labor and
Racial Policy," "Psychological and
Social Aspects of Personal Relations,"
"Employers, Real Estate Owners and
Racial Discrimination," "Political Ac-
tion," are the topics for the weekly
programs sponsored by the Inter-
Racial Association this summer.
"It is the purpose of this asso-
ciation to promote racial unity, help
eliminate the sources and causes of
inter-racial friction and discrimina-
tion and thus promote the concrete
realization of a living democracy,"
Herbert Otto, president of the or-
ganization, said.
The activities of the association
has included the campus-wide dis-
tribution of the pamphlet "Races of
Mankind," holding symposiums, dis-
qussions and lectures with various
guest speakers, in all of which the
aim has been to further inter-racial

War Should Continue I
WASHINGTON, July 3-(UP)-Rep.
Hoffman (R-Mich.), citing rumored
peace offers by Japan, demanded to-
day that the government state itsI
cbjectives and reasons for continuing
the war.
He pointed to the statement of
Senator Capehart (R-Ind.) thatI
Japan has sued for peace and the
denial by the State Department that
any "official" offer has been received.
Both may be correct, said Hoffman
in a statement placed in 'the Congres-
sional Record, "for it is well known
that defeated governments seeking
peace, an end to war, almost invari-
ably put out unofficial, indirect of-
If Japan "is ready to quit and to
submit to regulations which will pre-
vent her re-arming, is willing to yield
to us - as it is now announced - the
island bases which we need for pro-

tinue?" asked Hoffman.

The English Language, Institute
opened its July-August session last
Wednesday with students in attend-
ance representing most of the 21
American republics. At present about
50 students are enrolled, and more
are expected to arrive in a few days.
The Institute, each session of
which lasts two months, provides in-
tensive training in English for Latin-
American students under conditions
in which they acquire an orientation
to North American life and learn the
meaning of the culture reflected in
the English language.
Many of the enrollees are post-
doctoral students in professional
schools, as medicine, public health,
engineering, and law. Others are
studying in various professional
fields, as bacteriology, economics,
sociology, and education. The train-
ing they receive in the Institute ena-
bles them to engage profitably in ad-
vanced studies in English-speaking
universities. y
Members of the Institute spend
four hours in class each day, study-
ing the structure, pronunciation, and

trend of Argentine art. Another fa-
mous volume of Payro's is "Pintura
Moderna," in which he outlines mod-
ern painting since 1800.
This has been his first visit to this
country. Spending 20 years in Europe,
Mr. Payro is not only acquainted with
his native Argentine art, but he is
a keen critic of French art, which
is the model for all Occidental art.
Mr. Payro was very much im-
pressed with the American galleries
and museums. However, he said, "I
was not too surprised when I saw
these galleries, because I expected as
much. Your American collections
are first rate and magnificent." He
was especially impressed with the
Frick Collection and the Washing-
ton National Museum. Mr. Payro
mentioned that the methcds of dis-
play were to be especially commend-
He received a favorable impression
of American cultural life. He said
that there seemed to ba a great in-
terest in the fine arts here and that
America harbored many great learn-
ed perscns.
Expressing great optimism for Ar-
gentina, he stated that Argentina
can produce good art; although a
young country, there are many great
artists within its borders. "In fact,"
he said, "out of a population of 13,-
000,000, there are 1000 artists." Mr.
