Prof. Hugh Z. Norton of the
speech department spoke yester-
day under the auspices of the
speech department on the topic,
"Theater Student Abroad in 1953,"
Prof. Norton said that he went
abroad for three reasons: to study
theater criticism, to observe past
' evidences of the theater, and to
see performances being done to-
day in Europe.
In Paris, Norton studied the
criticisms of two infxuential critics
of the nineteenth century, Sarce
of France and Scott of England.
He also met Marcel Marceau, the
great French pantomimist.
de Medici Theater
Prof. Norton then went on to
northern Italy where, in Florence,
he was able to examine a theater
built by Cardinal de Medici in the
eighteenth century to honor a visit
from the Crown Prince of Austria.
The machinery of the theater
was built in such a way that one
man could raise the floor of the
auditorium up to the level of the
stage. This converted the theater
into a grand ballroom.
Prof. Norton observed that all
the stage machinery seemed to
have been taJen from a commer-
cial sailing ship, thus adhering
to the theory that the early con-
struction of theaters was borrowed
from the handiest practical source.

Fish Avoid Man-y Smell
By PAT ROELOFS
Two things that go with summer
like snowballs go with winter are
chiggers and fishing-.
And, according to a scientific
publication, chiggers c a n be re-
pelled. What's more, fish don't like
the odor of human beings.
Chemists have found that by ap-
plying dimethyl phthalate, inda-
lone or ethyl hexanediol to the
skin or clothing around sock tops,
trouser cuffs, waist, neck, and
shirt sleeves, 100 per cent protec-

'U' Sets Drift
In Lake Huron
Some 500 "drift bottles" were set
afloat Tuesday in Lake Huron as
part of the University Great Lakes
Research Institute's study of lake
The bottles will probably drift
up on Lake Huron beaches around
the first week of August.
The bottles were put afloat at
a series of 98 stations throughout
the lake with the institute's six
boats taking care of the American
side. The Canadian waters were
covered by five boats from the
Ontario Department of Fisheries.1
Other agencies cooperating are
the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service
and the State Institute for Fisher-
Five bottles were set afloat atj
each station. Each one contained
a post card to be returned to the
University institute with such data
dane provides control for more
than a month, the report tells.
Hardware and garden stores sell
these repellents under a variety
of brand names.
Persons using the spray are
warned to keep the chemicals
away from fruit trees or vegetable
gardens and to keep children away
from the air sprayed with repell-
ent for several hours to clear the
The proverbial "f i s h y smell"
isn't a one way feeling peculiar
to man. Fish don't like the smell
of humans either. Salmon for in-

In a test conducted recently by
Canadian ichthyologists, it was
found that the odor of human skin,
changed the migration rate of the

in the test, but only these five pro-
duced a change in migration rate.
The five odors are all from mam-

Crusades sfor women's rights-
Elizabeth Cady Stanton, Amelia
Bloomer and Lucretia Mott-will
be featured in the program "The
Declaration of Seneca Falls" to be
broadcast at 9:30 p.m. tomorrow
by WUOM-FM, University Broad-
The show also will be aired at
the same time over the University
station in Flint, WFUM-FM.
The program will be presented
as the seventh in the series "A
Gallery of Women" produced by
WUOM in conjunction with the
special summer lecture series
"Woman in the World of Man."
It was at Seneca Falls, N.Y.,
that the first convention for wom-
en's rights was held in 1848, and
Mrs. Stanton introduced the second
"Declaration of Independence."
Included in the bill w e r e de-
mands for women to receive: "the
sacred right to the elective fran-
chise ;" equal rights in universities,
share in political offices and hon-
ors; equality in marriage; and the
right to testify in courts of justice.
Helping her in the crusade was
"that Quaker agitator, Lucretia
Mott." Also in the fight was the
renowned Amelia Bloomer, Seneca
Falls' deputy postmaster and ori-
ginator of the shocking bloomers.
She defined her "dress" as com-
fortable, well suited to work or
sports and more modest, "espe-
cially on a windy day."
The battle for women's rights did
not end in Seneca Falls, for Mrs,
Stanton spent a lifetime fighting
for the cause.

Europe is considered by both the

of the presence of strong western

What will happen if Western
Germany is granted independence
and is re-armed with the help of
the West is anybody's guess. There
is some doubt that Russia would
go to war over the issue, but there
is little doubt that she would step

many and thus lay the ground-
work for a series of possible dan-
gerous border clashes.
