German Law Teacher
Schedules Speech
Dr. Richard Eilbott, former professor of law at the University of
Frankfurt in Germany, will present
the second in a series of five lectures on the general theme of "Dictators and Democracy" at 4 p. m.
Wednesday in the Law College assembly room.
The subject of Doctor Eilbott's
second lecture is "The Individual
and the State." He opened the
series last Friday afternoon, discussing ideology and its relation to
present day conditions.
Doctor Eilbott, who came here
early this year to study American
law and sociology, incorporates
ideas and experiences received from
some of the major universities of
Germany in his lectures. He studied
sociology at Heidelburg, philosophy
at Munich, church rights at Leipzig, and law at Marburg.
Dr. Amry Vandenbosch, head of
the department of political science,
through whom the lectures were arranged, said that Dr. Eilbott "has
unusual ability to interpret move
ments and ideologies, and in the
present state of the world these
lectures should be highly enlightening."
The remainder of the series in
cludes lectures on "Organization
and Government," April 28, "Law
