Surrealism Aid to Knowledge,
Picard Asserts to Journal Club
Surrealism was described as a progress toward knowledge
of the human soul and mind by Rene L. Picard, assistant profes
sor of romantic languages, in a lecture at the first fall term meet
ing of the Journal Club Nov. 11.
Picard explained that one should imagine the atmosphere in
Paris during the years of World War I to be able to define sur
realism. The nervous tension brought on by the war created a

volt of the people against ac
cepted standards, and a desire to
express the unconscious thoughts
in people’s minds.
In the field of surrealistic art,
the artist should create a work
which is completely independent in
itself—something which has never
been seen before.
In the field of literature, a poem
does not need to present any mean
ing, since its existence constitutes
its purpose. Two of the marks of
surrealism in poetry are the lack of
punctuation and the presence of
eliptical formulas which try to con
dense and give the real feeling of

THIS is the initial bid for fame
or infamy, of Willamette music

NO doubt, by now, most of you
have heard, or at least heard of,
‘mule train’. If you plan on buy
ing this fine tune, hold off until
you hear woody herman and
nat cole rip it apart in hill-billy
style for capitol records. IT’s
just different enough to warrant
buying it even if you already
have someone else disking.
There are only two copies of this
in Oregon at the present time;
one in the hands of Capitol’s big
man in portland, and the other

have fun listening at him and al
so get a prevue of this new capi

the show and the disk.
WILLAMETTE music is not go
ing to sell this disk, simply be
cause it is unable to meet the
requirements set down by Capi
tol,—but I’m sure that any of
the other disk dispensaries in
town will do so and be very hap
py to serve you. such as grave’s:
thompson’s: appliance center:

Wilson’s, your best bet would
probably be to phone your
choice of the above and leave
your order, this way you’re sure
of getting the cut and at the
same time help the dealer find
how many he should order, once
again . . . the only place, until
