classes so a student can complete
the training program in two sum-
mers.
This school is being given in
cooperation with the Michigan
Bankers Association.
U t i li t y companies throughout
the United States are represented
in the Public Utility Executive
Program, specially designed to em-
phasize problems of that industry.
Two four - week sessions have
been arranged for approximately
125 men in this program which has
been offered since 1951.
A training program for execu-
tives of Blue Cross-Blue Shield
plans has been held at the Univer-
sity each summer since 1952. About
60 executives of various state plans
attend three week sessions for two
summers.
About 50 men, representing a
wide variety of companies, large,
medium and small, in a number
of industries, are enrolled in a
general Executive Program. The
four - week programs have been
given each year since 1954.
Dean Russell A. Stevenson of the
business administration school re-
ports that "all of the programs
have been highly successful, and
have been enthusiastically received
by students and the organizations
they represent."

Statues,
IPaintings
'Show Modes
A four-armed statue of Siva, a
Hindu Deity, surrounded by a halo
of fire, and stepping on a figure of
evil appears beautiful, even to the
inexperienced observer.
This statue, one of tht examples
of Far Eastern Art now on display
at Rackham galleries, is not to be
taken literally, but to exemplify a
mood or idea. The four arms are
to show that this god is superhu-
man. Yet you don't.object to them,
for they blend in the overall pic-
ture in a natural manner.
The exhibit, part of the Univer-
sity Summer Session program,
"Asian Cultures and the Modern
American," has been borrowed
from the Cranbrook Academy of
Art and the Ann Arbor Collections.
The objects and paintings dis-
played represent the diverse ma-
terials, forms, and styles of art
in the Orient. There are examples
drawn from Iran to Japan, over a
time span of two thousand #ears.
There are two figures of Buddha,
each strikingly different. One
statue has a large bump on the
top of its head, which signifies
that Buddha has more wisdom
than ordinary mortals.
The statue of Buddha has a
slight smile, his eyes half closed
in meditation, and his hand in a
preaching position. These charac-
teristics portray him as not geing
concerned with worldly things. In
none of the figures at the exhibit,
however, does Buddha have a
third eye, or elongated ears, often
characteristics of his being super-
human.
An Indian statue of Buddha and
his apostles fro mthe period after
the Greek invasion shows definite
Hellenistic influences. Buddha
looks a lot like a Greek god.
The ornaments and ceremonial
jade displayed are distinctively
round in shape. Authorities on
Eastern art believe this roundness
represents heaven or the universe.
k Considering the difficulty in ob-
taining such pieces of art,- al-
though the collection is not large,
it is quite representative of all the
countries of the Orient, and rep-
resents too, art over a span of two
thousand years.
The features which distinguish
Eastern art are, "consistency of
style due to the religious aspect of
many of the objects, respect for
materials, coloit texture and
shape, and emphasis on surface
pattern in painting and sculp-
ture."
