Wilke To Give
Second Talk
Ulfert Wilke, visiting artist from
the Allen R. Hite Art Institute, will
deliver the second in a series of lectures in room 217 of the Funkhous-e- r

Biological Sciences Building at
3 pjn. today.
In the lecture, entitled "A Gallery
Talk." Mr. Wilke will explain his
different works, which contain surrealistic elements.
Mr. Wilke originally painted as a
realist, but in recent years he has
changed his art into the direction
of imaginative and abstract forms.
He deliberately avoids being obvious,
and when he explains his pictures
many of them are found to be whimsical and amusing.
His exhibit, now on display in the
Art Gallery, will continue for the
next three weeks.

Mosely Says
Pact Lifts

War Threat
The Atlantic Pact will effectively
remove any temptation on the part
of Soviet leaders to launch a sudden
surprise attack in Western Europe
Dr. Philip E. Mosely, of the Columbia University's Russian Institute,
stated in a lecture at Memorial Hall
last week.
Speaking before the UK Foreign
Relations Institute, Dr. Mosely said
he disagreed with critics of the Pact
who contend that its signing "will
provoke Soviet resentment and
counter action."
"On the contrary," he said, "the
concern of the United States with
the defense of Western Europe already has resulted in Russia's softening her manner of dealing with
us. Soviet leaders pride themselves
on' an unemotional calculation of
forces and chances, so the 'real
danger lies in their miscalculating.

Kentucky River, at Boonesboro
Beach Tuesday.
With Brachear was Martha Lee
Pennebaker, also a UK student, who
heard Brachear call for help while
he was swimming across the river.
After Miss Pennebaker dragged
the student to a rock which jutted
out of the water near the shoreline,
two unidentified boys in a speedboat
took Brachear to the beach.
In an attempt to revive him, Winchester firemen administered artificial respiration for more than two
hours. He was pronounced dead of a
heart attack by two physicians.
Brachear, an army veteran from
Williamsville. 111., was a member of
Beta Sigma Rho social fraternity.
Before transferring to UK he attended Lincoln College.
With Miss Pennebaker and Brachear were Ingeborg Dederlng of
Berlin, Germany, and Yuchen Ting

The proposed new amendment to the state constitution is in
itself oor enough. It, too, fixes salary limitations, alleit at a
figure leasonably higher than the present $.r)(M)0 mark. It is the
jHHirest sort of arrangement for any constitution to concern itself
with mailers which are the projier province of the legislative IxkIv.
The fixing of salaries is clearly a prerogative of the General Assembly, and ought not properly to be tolerated in the constitution
at all. But unfortunately, we must take this projjosed new amendment or nothing. Perhaps some way can be found to butter it
up enough to allow us to swallow it.
At any rate, the amendment should be adopted when the
voters of the commonwealth go to the jxJls this November.
