It markeda second step in bringing Commun¬ist activities into the open.Apparently expecting repercus¬sions from their misbehavior at Fri¬day’s Socialist meeting the Commun¬ists posted several guards at the doorof I^w North. No interference wasmade with the attempt of the' Trots¬kyists to distribute a letter, butknown s3rmpathizers were turnedaway at the door.The YCL has endeavoured to havethe Communist Club affiliate with itever since it stopped meeting more orless sub rosa in 1935. However, fearof the Illinois Sedition Law, whichthrows responsibility equally on theorganization allowing seditious acti¬vity, has cau.sed the University ad¬ministration to veto the alliance. Thisyear the law department, of the Uni¬versity is investigating the act, andif the answer is as expected, the af¬filiation will go through.Ruby Cooper, secretary of the CookCounty YCL, the scheduled speaker,did not arrive, and Frank Meyer andNate Moore discussed the role of theYCL on campus.

He further rebuked thereal estate interests who are fightingthe projected South Parkway projectin the Negro area by referring tothem as “short-sighted.”In scoring individuals who assertthat rents go down in districts in¬vaded by Negroes, Dr. Wirth declar¬ed that in actuality many rents goup. This necessitates several familiesto occupy one structure in order tomeet the high costs.“If present intolerable housingconditions in the Negro area are tobe alleviated, a concerted programshould be initiated,” suggested theprofessor when further questioned byThe Daily Maroon about his state¬ment. Included in the program wouldbe the erection of large scale publiclysubsidized houses within the Negrocommunity which extends from theloop to 43rd street.Buildings would also have to beconstructed in the areas between 43rdstreet and Garfield boulevard andfrom the Rock Island railroad tracksto Cottage Grove avenue, two dense¬ly populated colored sections. “Inthis manner” continues ProfessorWirth, “can fair housing accomoda¬tions at an equitable cost be offeredthose who are able to pay.”Wisconsin SponsorsLeague DiscussionUndergraduates have an opportun¬ity to participate in a Model Councilof the League of Nations, to be heldat the University of Wisconsin, De¬cember 3 and 4.Each college delegation will repre¬sent two countries and will preparea report on an important internation¬al question.

Gideonse that some drop inprices should have been anticipated.The administration’s program oftaxation aimed at the re-distributionof income, would, other things beingocjual, tend to reduce the incomesfrom equities and therefore makethem worth less in the market. If theinterest rate had fallen also, theprices would not have dropped.

Tonight RayErickson, professional pianist, will 'furnish the proper atmosphere fromthe keyboard of the theatre’s piano.Built around a giant, a midget,and a cripple, “The Unholy Three”was made at the height of Lon Chan¬ey’s awful career. He had alreadydemonstrated his mastery of make¬up in “The Phantom of The Opera”,and “The Hunchback of NotreDame.” In “The Unholy Three,” heuses little artificial face, dependingentirely upon horrible disguises andhis association with the midget andcripple for the desired effect.The film will be shown twice, at3:3 and 8:30, with admission at 36and 60 cents, respectively.City Opera OffersPositions to StudentsOpportunity is banging upon thedoors of all who yearn to prance be¬hind footlights, costumed vividly, inthe proximity of grand opera celeb¬rities.This noisy opportunity has takenthe guise of Jerome J.

He is a little uncertain of hisability to take less than the custom¬ary four years to get his Bachelor’sdegree in mathematics. Avers Ernest,“It’s a little harder than high school,you know.”However, the five-foot, 95-poundscholar seems entirely at ease in hisnew world. Like most freshman hewould prefer fewer lectures but re¬signedly supposes he will get used tothem. Although he is not particularlyimpressed with The Daily Maroon’sattempt to chasten Hutchins, histhoughts on the president are not allrosy. “His ideas are good in theory,but lack practical validity,” sagelyopines the youthful freshman.Hardest field for Ernest to conqueris English grammar. Like Santay¬ana’s Oliver Alden, to him it is onthe shady side of knowledge. “It isso illogical, and has so many rulesthat aren’t rules. Like, lie, lay, lay.’Or is that right ? I don’t know. That’swhy I always say recline.”Ernest’s full name is Jesse ErnestWilkins, Jr. He has two bi’others. Al¬though they are more advanced thanaverage, they are far from equallingbrother Ernest’s scholastic prowess.John, who was 12 last month, is ahigh school freshman, and Julian, 11last week, is in the upper half ofseventh grade.

Reform of Blackfnars.Why All This Fussabout vigorous campussocial life? Are personal relations so impor¬tant? Aren't commuting students nicely ad¬justed to their home community?When modern life is so impersonal, is it notcoddling University students to feather a warmcampus nest only to cast them out into a coldworld after four years or so? Was not thewhole design of the Chicago Plan to create selfdependence in the students?These raise important doubts as to the valueof the reorganization of student social life pro¬posed by the Maroon. The answer to the lasttwo is yes. But the whole of education is a cod¬dling, and close personal relations can contri¬bute mightily to effective intellectual training,the proper goal of the University according toPresident Hutchins.In a community of students pursuing an in¬tellectual education it is to be presumed thatamong other common interests that wouldcome up for talk and debate would be mattersof intellectual moment. One’s beliefs as to thenature of the world, society, and man, whichform the real core of a general education arelikely to be nearer to reality if they have beensubjected to the battering of debate betweenpersons with diverse specialized trainings, di¬verse temperaments.Only through such a process of talk can anyvalid consensus on metaphysical principles, touse President Hutchins’ phrase, be achieved.Yet Hutchins objects that more attention thanthe University devotes to social adjustment ofits students would be distorting the proper em¬phasis of the University!The criticism that intellectual matterswould not be those naturally arising in suchmeetings is a criticism of the sort of studentswho attend the University, and a devastatingcriticism of the effectiveness of the influencesthey are exposed to in classroom and library.Effective leaders, real intimacy within thegroups would make possible significant ex¬change of belief and opinion. Only so, couldthe groups have any real vitality in a Univer¬sity community.As for home adjustments, few homes indeedcan come close to the intellectual value a Uni¬versity adjustment offers. Otherwise one wouldstay home for one’s education.VOL. 38 No. 13^ail^ ^larnonFOUNDED IN 1901Member Associated Oollegiate PressThe Daily Maroon is the official student newspaper of the Uni¬versity of Chicago, published mornings except Saturday, Sunday,and Monday during the Autumn, Winter, and Spring quarters byThe Daily Maroon Company, 5831 University avenue.

Afraid, so afraid of whatpeople might do to him. So afraid that his eyebrowsperpetually slanted upwards in tight contraction.Every friendly act we counselors did for him wasmultiplied a hundredfold in his grateful eyes. He hadgone “home’’ to a strange family, to see if they couldlearn to love him.Over the telephone he said “I made a guitar, out ofa cigar box. It doesn’t sound much like your big one—listen.’’ It didn’t sound much like my big one, but Ilied a compliment about its tone.He said, “Well, I just wanted to talk to you.

Thatis, there are male poplars, and female poplars, thelatter being the more hardy sex in this case. Alongabout June, the male poplar starts dropping catkinson the sidewalks hereabouts; and six weeks later theground is covered with a white fluffy substance,snow-like in appearance, from the female trees.

Thisart university, which is being spon¬sored by the Association of Arts andIndustry, is located in the formerfamily home of Marshall Field III onPrairie Ave.Aim of UniversityThe aim of the University is toincorporate the methods of teachingemployed at the world-renownedBauhaus, at Dessau, Germany to pro¬vide a successful art education. (Thetraining is provided for creativedesigners who will produce works forexhibition, as well as for stage, dis¬play, and commercial use, for sculp¬tors, architects, and painters. Theprogram consists of theoretical andpractical courses, the latter takingplace in the workshops of the school.The educational method employed isexperimental in nature and places amaximum stress on individual initia¬tive and creative thinking.)The founder of the European Bau¬haus, Walter Gropius, now at Har¬vard University, is lending his as¬sistance as adviser. The director ofthe New Bauhaus is Professor Mo-holy-Nagi, formerly at the DessauBauhaus, well-known as constructiv¬ist painter photographer, film pro¬ducer, industrial designer, and edu¬cator.Moholy—Nagi’s PlansMoholy-Nagi stated that his prim¬ary aim for the New Bauhaus is toproduce graduates who will knowtheir crafts thoroughly especially inthe creative aspects, so that theymay impress their ideas upon the in¬dustrial and artistic world. “At thesame time,” he went on to say, “Iwant them to know more than theircrafts. I want them to be well in¬tegrated intellectually, having anunderstanding of all the arts andsciences and their interrelations.”In accordance with this last idea,the New Bauhaus has already en¬gaged several professors from theUniversity to give guest lectures. Dr.Rudolph Carnap, of the Philosophydepartment, who is an old friend ofMoholy-Nagi from Vienna days, is togive lectures on the logical basis ofthe sciences.Members of FacultyThe faculty includes, in addition toMoholy-Nagi and guest lecturersfrom the University, James J. Swee¬ney of New York Universoty, HinBredendieck, graduate of the GermanBauhaus, and George Kepes of Lon¬don, and Alexander Archipenko, not¬ed sculptor. These men respectively,will provide instruction in the historyof art, basic resign work, and draw¬ing and light techniques.Maroon Presents Second Articleon Faculty Impressions of Europec plines of science.

It is impossible to tellthe amount of underground unrestthere may be in these countries.”Press in Italy and FranceHalperin reported on the differ¬ence between the state-controlledpress in Italy, which is the people’sonly source of news, and the free,venal, press of France, where everyshade of opinion has a newspaper toback it. “The press,” he said, “in¬sists that Italy wants peace, but thatthe ‘Red Bloc,’ as all countries exceutGc'-inany are called, is trying to pre¬cipitate a war.”“Roosevelt is not in the highest re¬pute among the Italians,” Halperinadded, “but America is highly res¬pected. Animosity towards Franceand England is high. The peoplehave been convinced that the outcomeof the Spanish situation is of vitalimportance to the status of Italy,especially as far as her relative posi¬tion in the Mediterranean goes, Italywill do almost anything to get aquick termination with a Franco vic-to. y.”Lithuania and PolandPerhaps one of the strongest ex¬amples of national feeling was en¬countered by Hyman Cohen, instruc¬tor of Political Science, who traveledin Lithuania and Poland. Still smart¬ing from the capture of Wilno byGeneral Pilsudski in 1920, the Lithu¬anians have refused to have any con¬tact at all with the Poles. No directtransportation or communication ex¬ists between the two countries. Evenmail cannot be sent directly from onecountry to the other.The economic level in Poland isvery low as compared with the Unit¬ed States and poverty is apparent inmany places. The people are concern¬ed more with internal affairs thaninternational problems.Free Press and OppositionIn Lithuania, there is a free pressand opposition parties. In PolandIhfi’e is at the moment only oneparty and the country is facing theproblem of unrepresented minoritygroups. Both countries have compul¬sory military training and militariza¬tion is much more evident than inthe United States.Doing his work among the Jewishreligious colleges. Instructor Cohen,was impressed by the number ofAmerican students. At Mir alone,there were 50 pupils from the UnitedStates.“Although not expecting a WorldWar, most of the people are sittingwith their fingers crossed,” he said.The United States does not play avjry important part in their think¬ing, except as a very rich countryin comparison to their own relativepoverty.Today on theQuadranglesHarkins Apologizes for Simplicity of Viscosimeter,Apparatus to Measure Fluidity of LiquidsMEETINGSArrian.

Harkinsfor the surface viscosimeter recentlyinvented by Dr, Robert J. Myers andhimself, both of the University chem¬istry department.Viscosity, according to friendWebster, is “the resistance of a fluidto the • motion of its particles,” butto automobile drivers its lownessmeans that it’s time to change theoil. Lubrican’t viscosity has beenknown for years, but true viscosity,that of a film of one molecular thick¬ness has long been the object of ex¬perimentation.Since February, Harkins and My¬ers have completed spectacular ex¬periments with true oil films, onetenth of a millionth inch thick, whichenabled them to discover propertiesof films previously unknown. Whenquestioned as to the practical use ofhis invention, which is a copper barwith a narrow slit, Dr. Harkins re¬plied, “Like everything else, thepractability of our viscosimeter isrelative. Nothing becomes practicaluntil it is usable.” Aa a practicalillustration, for those who regardnothing as valuable, unless it has apractical application. Dr. Harkinscited the innumerable super-micros¬copic films in plants and animals,about which little is knovrn. “We areperfecting this new method of study¬ing films with the object of gather¬ing more knowledge about these bodyand plant films,” he declared.—ALL MAKES and MODELS—TYPEWRITERSNEW and USEDFOR SALE—RENT—EXCHANGE$19.50 and up.
