He cited the often-heard phrase of the late President Roosevelt, “the underprivileged one third” (stripped of its political connotations) as an indication of a growing regard for all individuals. Tennant rejects approaches to ieve mutual understandings,” Molotov said. ’ The Soviet delegation will contribute to insuring that the work I of the assembly and the Council I of Foreign Ministers is successful ! in accomplishing the interests of I strengthening peace and the wellbeing of peoples, great and small.” | Molotov warmly greeted the Uni- I ted States government and people in ftehalf of the government ane people of his country and h« expressed thanks for the warm re- j ception given him by American rep- j What'sa Matter Vets? You Rich Or Something The old bugaboo inflation must definitely be here. This is evidenced by the fact that quite a few veterans here are making no effort to collect the S50 waiting for them in the business office. According to Dr. Phillip A. Libby, SC coordinator of veterans affairs, quite a few students were admitted to SC in September without a letter of eligibility. Pending receipt of this letter, these students were required to deposit §50 with the business office. On arrival, the letter of eligibility was to be handed to the business office and the student’s deposit was to be refunded. ‘‘Evidently there has been a misunderstanding on the part of these students,” Dr. Libby declared. “I would like to make clear to all concerned that when the student receives his letter of eligibility, he is to file it immediately with the business office so that he can receive his deposit.” “Another important point is the fact that thc machinery for getting the student’s subs'stence cfiecks started cannot begin until the letter of eligibility is on file with that office.” “In the event that there are students here at school who are still hold ng their letter, they are to take it to the business office immediately,” Dr. Libby concluded. ...... , resentatives. religion that employ metaphysical CONNOLLY ARRIVES or rationalistic explanations. Ho places science and theology in the same class so far as accounting for knowledge is concerned, Dr. Helsel indicated. A scientific attitude is penetrating religious though, according to he Dotcor. and belief in eccleciast-icism is waning. Today, people arc coming to view religious concepts through experience. Tennant, he believes, came to an understanding of religion through science. Because of this, students of philosophy are more interested in this man’s point of view than ever before. These and similar ideas will be clarified in today’s lectures at 4:15 p.m. in Bowne hall. At the present time he is writing a book entitled “Discovering the Person,” in which he explains personalism from a psychological, philosophical, and religious point of view. Oil Painting Typifies Art Of England Marked resemblance to portraits of Queen Elizabeth has created interest in the painting, “Lady Lucy Harington, Countess of Bedford,” now hanging in the Fisher Gallery.

Tlie absence of shadowing brings about the flat appearance typical of paintings of that period. “Lady Lucy Harington” depicts a court lady dressed in a farthingale, rerembling a hoopskirt, of black brocade with a large lace ruff and cuffs attached. Before a background of maroon, the lady stands with one hand resting on a red leather chair. Her other hand holds a brown fan which blends warmly with her bracelet, locket, and gloves. M ss Winifred Poingdester, custodian of the gallery, emphasized the popular appeal of this painting. Answered Trials’ Technicalities Told by Gordon Dean In his speech to members of the SC Bar Association yesterday, Gordon Dean, faculty member of the School of Law and former assistant to Justice Robert Jackson in the recent Nuernberg trials, told Of ry, a partner,in some of his Cotton Wizard Loses Fortune, Upsets Market NEW ORLEANS, La., Oct. 21— (UP)—Thomas Jordan, said to be the world's largest operator in cotton futures, was caught 140,-000 bales “long” on a declining market last week and his forced liquidation touched off the break in the cotton futures market, a member of the New Orleans exchange said today. Jordan's losses, placed by some market-wise observers, in the neighborhood of $5,000,000, could not be ascertained. His family said he had left early today for “conferences.” His brother, Har- the technicalities and difficulties involved in the trials. Specifically Mr. Dean endeavored to answer these three questions: “Why were there any trials at all?” “Why did they Lake so long?” “What was their legal basis?” Mr. Dean justified the trials as the only way the war criminals could be tried fairly and to the satisfaction of the countries concerned. He argued against those who say it is unfair for the victor to try the vanquished, claiming the attack is not justified if the losing sides given a fair trial. William Green Hale, dean of law, pointed out that this was proved by three of the defendants being acquitted. Language barriers and differences in legal terminology of the four countries conducting the trials, the United States, Russia, England, and France, accounted for much of the time lapse In rating the defense lawyers, Mr. Dean termed their deportment “good,” their ability only “average.” He added that ignorance of what was going on in Germany was the most commonly used defense. Dean Hale introduced Mr. Dean, who graduated from SC in 1930, j and later served in the Department of Justice, office of the attorney general. During the last 15 minutes j of the hour Mr. Dean answered | questions about the trial, asked by j various law students. brother's business enterprises, said published stories of his losses had given him “fair treatment.” A firm dealing in spot-deliv-ery cotton to whom Jordan was heavily committed called for immediate delivery last week, the exchange member who would not permit use of his name. said. Jordan, he added cryptically, met all his obligations. The man of mystery in the cotton market was said to have become a trader only five years ago. He was said to have told friends cotton trading was nothing at all—"anybody can make 10 or 15 million dollars in cotton.” In August, Jordan was quoted as having predicted cotton futures would climb to 60 cents a pound. When he made his prediction, futures were 36 cents. They soared to 39. only to fall back to 33 cents in the downtrend last week that resulted in a “holiday” at the New Orle&ns, Chicago and New York exchanges Saturday. Cotton men said Jordan had made and lost several fortunes in cotton futures.

URGED TO VOTE Al Kotler, elections commissioner, urged freshman to vote and cited the increased number of voters in the spring elections as evidence of new interest in student government which freshmen will be expected to continue to build. “Freshmen should realize that the man they elect will have a voting seat on the senate,” Kotler said. “He will represent them and their activities throughout the year.” PROCEDURE Voting procedure, as outlined by Kotler, is as follows: There will be six polling booths lining the walk in front of Bovard auditorium. Members of one f the service organizations will supervise the voting. The voter is to present his student body card, a number will be punched from it, and he will be given a ballot. In each of the six booths, there will be a special stamp and stamp pad. The ballot must be marked with this stamp, ann any ballot bearing other marks or more than one mark will be voided. It is then to be folded once and dropped in the ballot box.

Harold von Hofe, head of the German department, are open to all students, faculty members, and the public. Dr. Berkes who served as a member of the allied secretariat of the Allied Control authority in Berlin during the war has been a member of the SC faculty since 1938. Russ Reject US Proposal WASHINGTON. Oct. 21. (U.P) — Ar American move to obtain Allied supervision of the forthcoming Bulgarian elections has been rejected by Russia's “rude interference in the affairs of that former Axis satellite, the State department said today. Russia's blunt dismissal of the American petition raised the possibility that the United States may refuse to accept the results of the Oct. 27 elections as representative of the will of the Bulgarian people. In that event, this government almost certainly would withhold recognition from whatever regime wins. The American request was based or the Big Four Moscow agreement providing for establishment of a representative government in Bulgaria. and it was directed to the Allied Control Commission for Bulgaria. The department said it was turned down by Col. Gen. Sergei S. Biryusov, Soviet acting chairman of the commission, who asserted that the conduct of the election was the exclusive business of the Bulgarian government. Gen. Walker M. Robertson. American member of the Allied commission, introduce# the United States' request on Oct. 1 on instructions from Secretary of State James F. Byrnes. Byrnes himself raised the issue on Sept. 24 in a letter to Kimon Georgiev, president of the Bulgarin Council of Ministers, in which he expressed American interest in the fair conduct of the October elections. Blue Key Blue Key will meet today at 12:30 noon in 418 Student Union according to an announcement by Phil Burton, president. An extensive four-year study of Russian for sentimental and academic reasons has produced highly practical results. Dr. Charles C. Hirt, director of choral organizations, said yesterday. “Without a knowledge of Russian, it would not be possible to present the unusual Russian music which will be heard at the Maria Kurenko concert Thursday. The choir will participate, doing original orthodox liturgies in the vernacular, a feat never attempted before by an American musical organization,” Dr. Hirt stated. “My double interest in Russian sprang from contact with a young Russian who escaped the revolution and later attended the same university with me. Oar exchange of language studies gave me my start in this field. Realizing that we Americans know little about Russian song and tradition, which dates back to the 10th century, I chose it as the dissertation for my doctorate,” he added. TIME IN THE EAST •Since I spent a great deal of time in the east, interviewing American-Russians, I made many valuable contacts, including Mme. Kurenko and through that contact have been able to induce her to appear at SC with our A Capelia choir next Thursday,” ocntinued Dr. Hirt. Having discussed Russian music with the noted Shevdiv, who ar-rr^nges music for the Don Cossock (hoir. Dr. Hirt then met Gretchaninoff, arranger and composer cf Russian music well known to choral singers and audiences throughout the world. Gretchaninoff. Dr. Hrit said, considers Maria Kurenko the greatest exponent of Russian art and folk songs. GRETCHANINOFF ARRANGES Two of the selections which Dr. Hirt will direct in Bovard auditorium Thursday night especially arranged by Gretchaninoff, are ‘ Lullaby" and “Credo.” These songs, iie explained, were originally written as solos, but have been developed in these arrangements for Mme. Kurenko, backed by the un-naccompanied choral voice. “The ‘Credo’ wii be of particular interest," explained Dr. Hirt, "as it was taken right out of Russian orthodix liturgy. The choir furnishes a sustained background while Mme. Kurenko sings the priest's chant.” Dr. Hirt is director of the Hollywood Presbyterian choir, which he founded. This choir has recently done recording for Columbia Mas-terworks with Dennis Morgan as soloist. KURENKO HELPS ON BOOKS Association with Maria Kurenko in connection with this week’s concert has been of value in another respect also. Dr. Hirt added. The singer has been helpful in discussing points of a book which he is now preparing on the origin of early Russian chant and folk song. “Thursday night's concert in Bovard auditorium at 8:30 is an outstanding musical event on the SC campus,” he concluded. “It is still possible for students to obtain seats at a 20-per cent reduction at the ticket window, 208 Student Union.”
