Tlie philosophy, life, and writings of the much-criticized German Nobel Prize winner for literature in 1946. Hermann Hesse, is the topic set for discussion by Dr. Stanley R. Townsend, assistant professor of German, during the fifth of the weekly LAS-sponsored lectures tomorrow. The meeting is scheduled for 3:15 in the art and lecture room of the University library. Selection of Hesse by the Nobel Prize committee last year was bitterly opposed by American critics, according to Dr. Townsend, since, even though being strongly influential throughout northeastern Europe, he was literally unknown in ■ America. Even after being ac-i claimed one of the top writers of i the year as the Nobel Prize winner, 1 one ieading American newrs magazine led the attack on Hesse with “Who is he?” The Hesse philosophy, however, has been widely influential, especially in the youth movements of the pre-Hitler Germany. Bitterly opposed to Germany’s entanglements before both World wars, Hesse left Germany in 1912 and became a Swiss citizen^ From there he became a spokesman for German youth in a "youth vs. society” movement. Hesse has written more than 50 books, only four of which have been widely translated. The most important of these, “The Wolf of the Steppes,” has made little headway on American reading lists because j of its strictly European style and topics. SEN. ROBERT TAFT . . . double edge?

The jury became hung with a 10-2 vote. accused by an equally mythical John Banks, radioman 3. c of the Long Beach air base, of robbing him at the point of a gun after offering him a ride back to the naval base. Under regular legal procedure when a jury cannot agree to a unanimous verdict in a criminal trial a new jury must be picked and a new trial held. However, since time was limted in this practice trial, and since both the student defense and prosecution got a grade from the affair, and since the whole thing wasn’t legally worth a tinkers, the court decided to be lenient and awarded the Azusa nightwatchman his freedom. “Panorama of Religions,” a series of lectures .sponsored by the council of religion, was inaugurated in Bowne hall yesterday when the Rev.

But it was drafted with the help of several committeemen after a month’s study, and there was every indication that it would receive widespread support, at least among the Republicans. The new bill, which contains a “national emergency” clause giving the government limited powers to deal with such strikes as the current telephone walkout, is expected to reach the senate sometime next week. Taft said the committee will start voting on its 62 pages cf varied provisions Friday. He declined to guess whether a majority will support them. Taft and other GOP leaders told newsmen that congress probably will proceed as scheduled on labor law revisions, and not attempt to jam through any quick remedies for the telephone and coal mine controversies.
