FINE ARTS SCHOOL OPENS Helm Names 'BARGAIN' CERAMICS SALE Chairmen for 16 Committees Harris Hall’s art patio may resemble a department store bargain basement at rush hour today when the School of Fine Arts’ traditional spring ceramics sale gets under way. .More than 1,000 pieces of student pottery—from lamp bases to hanging lanterns—will be 011 display from noon to 10 p.m. today and from 10 a.m. to 10 p.m. tomorrow. The sale will feature a large selection of bowls, ashtravs and decorative bottles ranging in price from SI to S6. Larger items such as lamp bases'and vases will run from S25 lo .S*5. "This sale will include items from bowls, bottles and ashtrays to very unusual items which are mainly decorative pieces," Joyce Theurkauf. who is in charge of the exhibit, said. "We will also feature notterv cof-fee-warmers.” The ceramics were designed mainly by graduate students working, for their M.A. degrees. Graduates who made the works are Amos White IV, Linda Hickey, Roy Burke, Dickie Littlejohn, Bill Bradford and Joyce Theurkauf. Some undergraduates and faculty members a!»:) designed work for the sale. “This will really be an excellent opportunity for students shopping for wedding presents because the ceramics are selling for a much lower price than thev would in stores." Miss Theurkauf explained. Last ve*r, most of the pottery was snatched up bv bargain hunters within two hours after the sale opened. Architecture Mirrors Contemporary Society Airhiteoture directly and indirectly reflects the image of modern society, a noted architect said yesterdav ai the Faculty Center. Ma> nard Lyndon, visiting critic for fifth-year design in the School of Architecture, cited four features of modern life which he believes are reflected in architectural works. First, modern architecture seems to express the decreasing importance of man as an individual. the former architect for the Department of Interior said “Offices and often homes are becoming more impersonal as man himself becomes less and less important as an indiv idual," he added. .Mirror« Id»** Secondly, Lyndon said that modei n designs seem to mirror the idea of attempting to control man. "Buildings are often u-ed to control man. and to tell him w hat to do," he said. Third, the architect said that architecture reflects the attempt to "squeeze" man down. "Houses are generally smaller, within a comparable economic hracket, than thev were several decades the more important and precious things of our existence." he told hi® audience. Airports are often our coldest and most impersonal buildings, he said, and yet airports are the scene of great sentiment and emotion. The designer- of the first modem public school also discussed developments in the architectural field. "We have new, amazing technical facilities which enable us to build higher and bigger Chairmen of lfi ASSC committees for next year were announced yesterday by new ASSC President. Hugh Helm.

New Student Survey Committee chairman will be Pete Jacob, and co-chairman is Bill Jobson. Penny McElroy will head the Student Says Indolence Damages ASSC In Final Speech By HAL DRAKE Assistant City Editor Outgoing ASSC President Bill Steigerwalt used his last three minutes as student body leader last night, during the ASSC inauguration ceremony to plead with new officers to free student government from political pressures. Speaking to more than 100 old and new members and guests of 'he Senate and Execu- tive Capinet, Steigerwalt attacked thf ' laziness and indolence" of the student ieatleis that, he said, resulted in his assumption of "dictatorial powers. ' "Student government must be established under an effective stystem of checks and balances so that no organizations, fraternity or political group can be powerful enough to control it," j Steigerwalt said.
