"The New Yorker" mentally
nudged his readers with the sug
gestion that they keep tneir eyes
on this rapidly rising young mia
western artist.
A crest in his still - young career
came four months ago when the
Cleveland Print Club and the
Cleveland Museum of Art held a
one-man exhibition for the 31-year-old
artist. With its reputation, the
Print Club offers invitations only
to two types of artists: the m o s t
promising and the best Known

A meeting of the Student Affairs
Committee will be held in the near
future to determine who has juris
diction over the averages neces

J. P. Colbert, Dean of Student
Colbert said that although he has
heard from the Judiciary Commit
tee, he would be interested in know
ing whether this constitutes the
opinion of the entire Council.
Controversy has arisen over the
ruling by the Council Judiciary
Committee that the Council has
the right to set scholastic averages
for the three organizations just as
it sets requirements for other
campus activities.
The Judiciary Committee ruling
is final for the Council.
Colbert said he thought personally
that "the higher average is a good
IFC, Panhellenic and Union pro
tested this statement on grounds
that they are not campus activities
but autonomous groups respon
sible only to the Board of Regents
because of their unusual organiza
tion. Average requirements set by the
Council are S.7 for officers and
5.0 for members. The three groups
in question require a 4.5 average
to become a member.
In regard to the dispute, the
Council moved several weeks ago
that the Judiciary Committee ex
amine the status of IFC, Panhel
lenic and Union to determine the
actual lines of authority.

Pozzatti came to the University
in 1950, directly from his native
state of Colorado, where he ob
tained his Bachelor and Master of
Fine Arts degrees.
Recognition of Pozzatti's highly
dramatic effects through bold de
signing began to snowball after his
return in 1953 from a year's study
as a Fulbright scholar at the In
stitute of Art at Florence, Italy.
Most of his prints and paintings
immediately before and after his
Italian studies dealt with Italian
architecture. For the time being
Pozzatti has settled his artistic ex
pression on landscape subjects and
natural forms, such as flowers,
trees, and animals. His print of a
grasshopper received a purchase
award at the 27th International Ex
hibition of Prints, held at the Seat
tle Art Museum in 1955.
The Art News, the art world's
bible, said in a recent issue that
Pozzatti's plates "demonstrate an
extraordinary technical dexterity
and a penchant for linear expres
sion." The magazine particularly com
mends Pozzatti's "Venetian
Domes," which is on display at the
University Galleries. Of the print,
the magazine says: "Venetian
Domes is the most impressive
proof of his skill, strength, and per
ception. It is a large plate, an
aerial view of the domes of Venice
rendered with elean, crisp burin
lines on zinc. The composition is
in perpetual motion the eye fol
lows a complex linear pattern in
an endless oval. Drama and brav
ura stem from the early Italian en
gravers in this print which reaf
firms the reputation of this excel
lent young artist."

The Midwestern political herl
tage stems from both, he said.
Historians, he said, have tended
to neglect the post-frontier years
which are increasingly urban.
"City machines and city bosses,
un assimilated city immigrants, and
city business interests bent on dom
inating the political life of both
country and city are as much a
part of the Midwestern tradition,"
he said, "as the Grangers, ths
Greenbackers and tfye Populists.
"In the 19th Century the farmers

domination almost alone. In tha

Knoll, Beutel
Attend AAUP
Frederick Beutel, professor of
law, and Robert Knoll, assistant
professor of English, represented
the University at the American
Association of University Profes
sors meeting in St. Louis last week.
The AAUP censored the adminis
tration of seven schools for what
they termed, 'improper interfer
ence of academic freedom," Beu
tel said. The interference in most
instances was the unjustified dis
missal of faculty members.
Beutel served as chairman for
the committee investigating tha
North Dakota Agriculture College.
The committee found the school
administration at fault in discharg
ing four professors and the school
administration was censored.
The censorship entails an offi
cial statement by the AAUP that
the institution does not live up to
the standards of the AAUP, Beutel
Other schools censored included:
University of California, Ohio State,
Temple University, Jefferson Med
ical College, St Louis University
and Rutgers. '
