Clay Modeling Shows
Ingenuity of Students
By BETTY JANE THOMPSON
The final step in many architecture problems, the modeling of
the project in clay, often reveals the ingenuity of the student archi
! tect, an investigation yesterday of work now in progress showed.
A faculty member recalls that one problem called for tile roofing.
To obtain the desired tiling, the girl working on the design sacrificed

Although it is not necessary,
students often landscape the plot
upon which they build their house
or other building. The clever little
green trees used are a source of
wonder to the uninitiated. But to
the student architects it's nothing.
“Very simple,” observed one stu
dent. “All you do,” she explained,
“is clip the desired size from a
sponge, put it on a piece of match
j stick or some other material, and
i there is your tree!”

only Dorsey hit Anet. Both Dorsey

Souls at Sea” with Gary Cooper,
Frances Dee, George Raft, and
Olympe Bradna starts at the May
flower tonight for a two-day run.
The sea yarn begins in a court
room where Gary Cooper is being
tried for manslaughter. Then the
picture slowly unfolds the preced
ing events leading up to this trial.
Seems that Cooper had dealings
in slave-trading. When this revela
tion is made to the girl he loves,
Frances Dee, she turns her back to
him. The plot reaches an anti
climax as the ship they are on sets
Only one boat is available and it
is so over-crowded that Cooper has
to shoot those who oppose him and
drown those clinging to the sides
of the boat. When the boat reaches
safety, Cooper is put on trial for
manslaughter on the high seas.
Since he refuses to defend himself,
things look bad.
The trial and the murder charge
were the fragmentary basis on
which this picture was built. Some
one chanced to run across the pro
ceedings of the trial in records
dating back to 1841.

Tuesday night's circulation is
not far behind that of Thursday,
while Monday, Wednesday, and
Friday continue with an even and
slightly lower average.
With the University schedule ar
ranged as it is, that is, with the
heaviest classes for the most part
on Monday, Wednesday, and Fri
day, the logical effect is that the
greatest amount of studying be
done on Tuesdays, Thursdays, and
Tuesday’s lag indicates that stu

to get all their work cleared up for

can. Saturday night and Sunday
