Alumnus Holds Responsible Position

ing of the United States nitrogen fixa-
tion plant No. 1, at Sheffield, Ala. Mr.

French Churches Destroyed by Ger-
mans Can Never be Replaced,
Says Prof E. R. Turner
When they promised to rebuild any
cathedrals which might be destroyed
by their airplane raids over Paris the
Germans were agreeing to the impos-
sible because the spirit of modern
times differs so greatly from that of
the periods when these churches 'were
built that no restoration could equal
the original, said Prof. E. R Turner
in his lecture on a "Trip \hrough
Histohic Paris," given at 5 o'clock
yesterday afternoon in the Natural
Science auditorium before a large au-
Explains Siructures
The structural development of Notre
Dame was carefully explained by Pro-
fessor Turner -who illustrated his
points with slides showing the facade,
the towers, and their ornamenting gar-
goyles, and the flying buttresses which
support there of. The interior of the
church shows the conventional plan
much used in the Basilican type hav-
ing an aisle on either side of the nave
separated from it by a long row of
The two extremes of building that
are found in Paris were exemplified
by the Eiffel tower and ^the Latin
quarter. The tower is the highest
man made structure in the world,
coming close to 1,000 feet. From the
top, which is reached either by a
winding stairway or a slow European
elevator a splendid view of the entire
city is visible. The tower was built
for the world's fair held at Paris not
very many years ago.
Latin Quarter Old
At the other end of the scale in
Paris is the Latin quarter. The nar-
rowness of the streets and the high,
close buildings show it to be one of
the oldest districts in the city. This
interesting porion can be seen only
by walking through it on foot much to
the tourists disgust.
Besides the Eiffel tower the two
things most generally known at Paris
are the great art gallery, theLouvre
and the huge triumphal arches. The
Louvre is one of the largest buildings
in the world and is a fine example of
late Renaissance architecture. It con-
tains a splendid pollection both of
painting and of sculpture. During the
war some of the most noted statues
such as the Venus de Milo have been
put in a vault lest the building be
destroyed in a German air raid.
At one end of the Avenue, the
Champs'Elysees, is the triumphal arch
which Napoleno had erected to com-
memorate his victories while atthe
opposite end is another arch so like
the first that the difference can hardly
be recognized.
Dean Myra B. Jordan Entertains
Dean Myra B. Jordan will be at
home to all summer session women
this afternoon from 2 to 4 o'clock at
1215 Hill street.
