XOTTERDAM, July 6--(Delay-
-More than 1,350 cramped and
i-ripened American students re-
ved a veritable royal welcome
en their ship steamed into this
orful Dutch port.
arriving here aboard the . S.
lendam, after a windy ten-day
age across the North Atlantic,
students were greeted at the
k by Prince Bernhard, husband
the Netherlands' Queen Juliana,
d high-ranking dignitaries who
:>mpanied His Highness.
MONG THE Volendam's pas-
gers were at least 26 University
Michigan students and Ann Ar-
residents.
For most of the passengers,
e trip marked the beginning
a. once-in-a-lifetime exper-
lce, though for the 575-foot
alendam, one-time luxury liner
: d wartime troop carrier, it
is old stuff.
ifter disembarkation, the stu-
it travleers immediately head-
by train and plane for all parts
Europe, where they will spend
D memorable months working in
fps, touring the countryside,
Iting the people, and inspecting
toric sites.

WATER-WEARY, the students
1e all happy to set foot on earth
:e again. But none would soon
get the active days at sea, the
ndly shipboard life, and the
pitality of the Dutch crewmen.
From the time the S. S. Volen-
um left Quebec, the veteran
ip was virtually turned over to
ie passengers.
?rofiteering on the part of the
tch shipowners was at an abso-
e minimum. Popular brands of
uerican cigarettes could be pur-
ased at 15 cents per pack. Dutch
,. though rationed, was sold
only 10 cents a bottle; it quick-
became the most popular com-
dity on board.
DUCATIONAL lectures, by a
1up of European and American
tis professors, and journ-
its, were well-attended during
day.
Evenings, the students enjoy-
I dancing parties, and movies.
1iep ng accommodations,

ted cargo holds housing 20 to

POCTURE NEWS

Never before has the time lag
been so long between the presen-
tation of new forms in art and
their acceptance by the public as
it has been in the case of con-
temporary painting, according to
Prof. Edward W. Rannels, chair-
man of the art department, Uni-
versity of Kentucky.
Rannels, who opened the second
Parking Lots
Open Onlyto
Card-Holders,
Students are not permitted to
park in lots bearing signs saying
"only for those with permits,"
John Gwin, Office of Student Af-
fairs said yesterday.
"Some of the students who have
secured special permits from us
have misinterpreted the use of the
word 'permit' on the signs, be-
lieving that this entitled them to
park there," he added.
* * * .
THESE LOTS, explained Gwin,
are for the use of faculty members
and disabled students only. Those
who violate this regulation will
be warned the first time, and
thereafter fined from one to three
dollars. Persistant violation will
result in a loss of driving privi-
leges, he said.
"We are forced to have these
restrictions because of the limit-
ed amout of parking space, but
there are other parking lots
around the campus which do
not have any sings, where stu-
dents may park," Gwin remark-
ed.
Gwin requested those students
who neglected to put their license
plate numbers on their registra-
tion material to either stop in'or
phone the information to the Of-
fice of Student Affairs.
Arciniegas Talk
Professor German Arciniegas,
visiting professor in the Spanish
department, will lecture at 8 p.m.
today in the Rackham Building
on "La Vida y la Literatura del
Paraguay."

week of the contemporary arts
and society course Monday with
a lecture on Form and Function
in Visual Art, declared that this
condition was paradoxical.
"ART IS now available to more
people than ever before. There
are prints for study and use, mo-
vies on art, all kinds of books on
art -in every way an apprecia-
tion of art is easier to achieve."
One possible cause for the
time lag might be that, in
changing, art has freed itself
from such directional influences
as church and crown, Rannels
speculated.
It is not probable that are will
again attach itself to another spi-
ritual movement in the non-spi-
ritual, material world of today,
he added.
* * *
"WHAT DISTINGUISHES con-
temporary painting is the dyna-
mic interplay of spatial compo-
nents," Rannels observed. This
arises out of a new understanding
of space that first developed in
science, he explained.
The demands of art have to
change to be in harmony with
the times, and the artist, sensi-
tive to the demands of art, meets
the change by creating new
forms, Rannels said.
He pointed out, for example,
that contemporary architecture is
just as geometricized as was ar-
chitecture in the formalized age
of reason.
"The difference is that contem-
porary architecture has conceived
a geometry more in harmony with
the contemporary world."
* * *
WE MUST be more perceptive
in looking at paintings of abstrac-
tions than with recognized forms,
Rannels remarked.
"Recognition depends on expec-
tation; if we don't find what we
expect in art, we feel-uneasy about
it. But after we are prepared for
the new forms, expectation meets
with satisfaction and instead of
seeming in conflict with nature,
the new art seems born of nature,"
he explained.
