A Germany faced with desperate shortage of food, but in no way likely to meet defeat because of that shortage. A Finland which has eventually come to be about the safest place in Europe. An Italy which did not want to go to war against anybody. --- i A Sweden w7hich must turn to Russia, its enemy for generations, as its economic hope. And an America gaining respect in Europe because it is keeping out of the wrar. These are the thumbnail, up-to-the-minute sketches brought back by Dr. Ivan Benson, associate professor of journalism at the University of Southern California, who has just arrived in Los Angeles after a year spent in Stockholm, Sweden. With his wife and three children, Dr. Benson found it necessary to travel through Germany and Italy to reach Genoa, where they sailed aboard the S.S. Manhattan, arriving in New' York June 11. Since that time Dr. Benson has been in Minnesota, having just arrived at his Los Angeles home to resume his faculty duties at SC. “Our trip through Germany revealed that the Germans are not in good circumstances.” Dr. Benson stated. “Every available piece of ground appeared to be utilized for crops, but there seemed to be no one at hand to care for the fields, to say nothing of handling the harvest. “In the cities there is a shortage of food, and most of that available is unpalatable, at least to those not aecustomed to substitutes or not driven by the zeal to sacrifice. “However, there is no indication that a food shortage wrould ever defeat the Germans.

At the conclusion of the musical program Dr. Bradley, visiting professor of English, will lecture on the subject, "Film and the Theater." In his lecture. Dr. Bradley will take issue with the notion that one cannot at the same time appreciate the legitimate drama and motion picture drama. An amateur director and actor of wide experience and a member of the Play and Players group of Philadelphia. Dr. Bradley combines knowledge of the theater with knowledge of motion picture drama gained through long acquaintance with motion picture workers. Finding himself unable to accept the oft-repeated opinion that the theater and the cinema were mutually exclusive, he began an intensive study of the two forms of art. He has concluded that whereas the motion picture is best adapted to narrative, the legitimate drama ia predominately a poetic expression. In a sense their intentions are different, and certainly both — not only one — are worth preserving. In his lecture he will discuss the probable future of the drama, and it is his feeling that the trend will be towards the greater popularity of community playhouse undertakings, such as those of the Pasadena Community playhouse and the Play* and Players group of Philadelphia, and diminishing importance of th* New York type of professional drama.
