Two Women Arrested
On Smuggling Charge
NEW YORK, Aug. 6-( P)-Two
women arriving by plane from
Europe were arrested on smuggling
charges today after customs in-,
spectors allegedly found more than
$250,000 worth of diamonds in
their luggage.
Customs officials said the two
cases apparently were unrelated.
One of the women, identified by
authorities as Mrs. Fanny Keller,
45, of Chicago, was released in
$1,000 bail for Grand Jury action'
after arraignment before a United
States Commissioner.
The other, identified as Helen
Lust of New York, was arraigneda
later and posted $3,500 bail.

Writing 'Ebb'
Director Explains
Standards of creative writing
are at a low ebb in contemporary
America, according to Professor
Roy Cowden, director of the
Hopwood Awards:
Explaining the Hopwood pro-
gram in the current issue of the
"Michigan Quarterly Alumnus
Review," Prof. Cowden stated,
"On every hand one is being made
aware that writing in our country
is in an unhealthy state."
Prof. Cowden said that many
writers have inadequate knowl-
edge of the resources of words and
sentences and no respect for the
medium they are using. The re-
sult of this, Prof. Cowden assert-
'ed, is that writers are turning out
stories which do not meet a high
It is the responsibility of uni-
versities to encourage good crea-
tive writing in all areas since
publishers are more interested in
books that will sell than in good
writing, he said.
"The teacher of writingcannot
make a student think better than,
his capacities allow," Prof. Cow-
den explained "but the teacher
can help the student to under-
stand the meanings of the tools
he must use and lead him to a
mastery of word and thought."

University Students Making
Friends From All ofEurope

Organ professor Carl Weinrich
of Princeton University called or-
ganists to task for neglecting what
he termed "the vast treasure of
fine music in the organ reper-
He blamed this neglect for the
present situation whereby organ
music lacks the universal appeal
that symphony music enjoys.
Prof. Weinrich, who is a visit-
ing lecturer here this summer,
teaching organ classes, is of the
opinion that if organists play neg-
lected music of the Renaissance
and Baroque period convincingly,
people will enjoy music of a pe-
riod when the organ was the "king
of instruments."
Prof. Weinrich took his own
highly popular recordings as ex-
amples of the rebirth of interest
in organ music. Up to 1937, little
was done in recording organ
works. Prof. Weinrich claims that
his albums made that year for
Musicraft helped to break the ice.
Technical Difficulties
Numerous technical difficulties
had to be overcome. The full tone
of the organ and the limited fre-
quencies used in early recordings
had made them unsatisfactory,
but now these inadequacies have
disappeared, he said.
Bach's organ music is definitely
not cold and impersonal, accord-
ing to Prof. Weinrich.
He claimed Bach was the last,
rather than the first of the great
classic organ composers, pointing
out that much organ music dated'
from the 15th, 16th and 17th Cen-
Prof. Weinrich said most of the
great organ literature was writ-
ten before 1750 because after the
development of symphonic music
and the modern orchestra, organ
comb osers lost their incentive.
Modern Works
But Prof. Weinrich's love of
old music does not stay him from
admiring modern works. He claims
not to have done much composing
himself, but he never runs out of
contemporary music. He thinks
very highly of the three sonatas
of Hindemith, and some of
Schoenberg's and Krenek's music,
all of them regarded as "modern-
If some students think of organ
music as gloomy and stuffy, it is
probably because they associate
the organ with church services,
where the music is generally of a

Weinrich Cites Negligence
Of Fine Music by Organists


soleirn character. At least, that is
Prof. Weinrich's explanation,
But those who heard Prof.
Weinrich play Haydn's "Pieces for
Mechanical Clock" recently should
not need a convincing argument
as to why organ music need not be
stuffy or gloomy.
Those three delightful little
pieces belong as much to the or-
gan repertoire as does the most
intricate fugue.
Prof. Weinrich, who has given
recitals all over the United States
and Canada, studied at New York
University and Curtis Institute.
He has appeared with several
top orchestras and 'has taught or-
gan in several colleges. He is cur-
rently director of music at Prince-
ton University Chapel and is also
on Columbia's faculty.
Wallacites Hit
Golf Committee
The Washtenaw County Pro-
gressives of Wallace struck verbal
blasts at alleged discrimination at
a local golf tourney and called on
Congress to pass anti-Jim Crow
In letters addressed to Mayor
William E. Brown, Jr., of Ann Ar-
bor, and Senators Arthur H. Van-
denberg and Homer Ferguson and
Rep. Earl C. Michener, they made
their pleas.
They condemned the action of
"the City Golf Committee"$ in
voiding the participation of Lloyd
Quicksey in the "City Golf Tour-
nament" because of his race. They
called for the city to withdraw
the use of its name in connection
with the tournament, urging the
city council to prevent the use of
school banking facilities for tour-
nament funds and prevent the use
of the Municipal Golf Course for
the tournament.

University students are fast
making friends all over Europe-
via the mailman.
Most correspondents have se-
cured each other's addresses
through the Correspondence Ex-
changetof the National Students
Marion Walsh, local chairman
of the group, has reported that
numerous letters from overseas
students desirous of finding Amer-
ican penpals are still unanswered.
Among them are a number from
both the American and the British
Occupation Zones of Germany, as
well as a few from the Russian
The German students, looking

toward the day when Germany
will once more join the family of
nations, are particularly anxious
to know American students. An
excerpt from the letter of a Mu-
nich boy is indicative of the tenor
of most of the letters from Ger-
man students.
"Although the war has been
over three years, Germany is
closed to the world, as behind a
wall. We know that the time will
come in which we will again come
into contact with people of other
countries. We want to know them
in preparation for this time, and
we want to know the Americans
most of all."

Germany, or from France, Eng-
land or Russia may contact Mar-
