Ralph Bard, assistant secretary of
the Navy,. will speak from a CPU plat
form Saturday at 8 p. m. in Memorial
hall on the "Duties of the Navy in war

CPU announced yesterday.
Promising to give a graphic picture
of the "men behind the scenes" in the
Navy, Bard will fly from Washington
for this public appearance. Since his
appointment in. February, 1941, "Bard
has become one of the most qualified
men in the government to give facts
and figures on what the Navy does in

Becoming prominent in the field of
business finance, Bard organized his
own company in 1ST25 and remained
president of that company until 1928,
at that time he became president of
the Chicago investors corporation.
During the depression this company
was consolidated with the Chicago
corporation, with Bard being named
vice president and director.
Most of his business life has been
"devoted to the financing and develop
ment of various smaller industrial
manufacturing concerns with which
he has remained in close contact, act
ing in an advisory capacity."

time for the speech since members of
the Naval Pre-flight school will be able
to attend as well as the student body.

uouise Fleming, speaking before a
mass meeting of the YWCA last night
in Memorial Hall, urged the students
to formulate their own ideas of the
world after the war and work to put
them into operation.
The speaker, a member of the nation
al staff of the YWCA, built her talk
around the questions most frequently
asked by college students in her pres
ent tour of American campuses.
Among the problems she discussed
were war marriages, vocational plans,
war colleges, the post-war world and
Faith during wartime.
She singled out the fear of inflation
and the racial problem now confront
ing this country as two of the chief
questions to be considered by a college
group. "Over one-half of our Allies are
not members of the white race. This is
a fact to make us stop and realize the
actual problem confronting us in deal
ing with the Negro," she said.

Augment Lurcy Exhibit
Augmenting the collection of mod
ern French paintings which were lent
to the University by Mr. and Mrs.
George Lurcy for a month's display,
three new pictures on landscapes by
Sisley, Marquet land Dufrenoy that
were held up in the restorers in New
York were added to the current ex
hibit in Person hall.
The paintings vary greatly: Sis
ley's represents the Impressionist
group in its traditional vein, Dufre
noy's "Place de la Bastille" is Impres
sionist in its manner though it was
painted much later, and Marquet's
landscape of a river and a bride over
its banks has a rich golden glow that
gives it a great deal of atmosphere.
The painting by Marquet was done
some years ago when Marquet was
more closely associated with Matisse
and the "Fauves" group.
Also on display are "War Posters"
and "Dilbert" by Lt. R. Osborn which
are cartoons on Naval aeronautics. In
the small gallery "Visual Aids in Ar
my Education" and "Children's Books"
may also be viewed.
The exhibition will be open daily
from 10 a. m. to 5 p. m. and on Sun
days from 12 a. m. to 5 p. m.
the admission would be set at $ .30, in
cluding tax. All profit from the game
