Photographer Denker Wanted ToShoot Japs,
But Navy Said He Must Do Shooting Here
By W. H. Hipps, Jr.
Joe Al Denker, professional pho
tographer for the past five yearsnow
stationed in the naval V-12 unit here
at the University of North Carolina,
has an extremely low opinion of
celebrities in general. "Many of them
are pretty 'Fakish'," he frankly
He ought to. know, for among the
famous personages whom he has pho
tographed are Dorothy f, Thompson,
Jinx Falkenberg, Gene Krupa and
Explaining further, Joe says, "You
see, photographers generally see all
the so-called 'glamour boys and girls
stripped of all their glitter and make
up. After a personage sweats for
several hours under hot lights and
his make-up begins to run and
smear and his temper becomes mean,
then you really begin to see him as
the scheming, grafting crafty, cheap
little fake that he is."
Joe nominates Dorothy Thompson
as the worst of the bunch Jmx
Falkenberg as the best celebrity with
which to work.

SEC To Sponsor
Dr. J. P. Harland, chairman of the
Student Entertainment Committee, ha3
announced that the SEC will present
Paul Fleming, distinguished magician,
in an "Evening of Magic" Monday
night in Memorial Hall at 8:30 o'clock.
With Dr. Fleming will appear his
wife, Mrs. Paul Fleming,, and his
brother, Walker Fleming.
During the two-hour course of the
"Evening of Magic," Dr. Fleming will
use three-fourths of a ton of equip
ment. He will perform, sleight-of-hand
tricks, create illusions and perform
feats of mind-reading and pseudo
spiritualism, , Mr. Fleming's demon
strations in spiritualism and mind
reading are wholly unrelated to
"spirits" or super-normal mental pow
ers. Quite apart from genuine mind
reading arid spiritualism, the fact re
mains that much that is fraudulent is
being exhibited today under the guise
of . psychical phenomena; Mr. Flem
ing reproduces some of the best of
these manif estations, presenting them
after the fashion of the mind reader
and spirit-medium, but acknowledging
frankly that they are accomplished by
perfectly natural means. -East
Mr." Fleming will also perform some
East Indian magic feats, among which
will be the visible and gradual growth
of a rose bush and "The Hindoo
Gong." This last trick suggest the
possibility of a human being passing
invisibly through space. ' '
Mr. Fleming has played to audi
ences throughout the United States, at
colleges and ; Universities "from coast
to coast (he has been here four times) ,
onthe: "hut"-circuit in France " in
1918 .anjd;.ata PsidenjIUHeception
in the White House in 1923.
Mr. Fleming has the unusual, dis
tinction of appearing twice in "Who's
Who In America," As Paul Fleming
Gemmill, economist and Paul Fleming,
magician. He has r written several
books on economics and is professor of
Economics at the University of Penn
sylvania. He received his A.B. at
Swarthmore and his Ph.D. at Penn
sylvania. He is member of three honor
The American Hardware Manufac
turers wrote Mr. Fleming, after his
performance before their 1939 con
vention: ". . . in all these (40) years,
no single entertainment has received
more general approbation than that
accorded your Evening of Magic . . .
Every phase of your presentation ...
fascinated your audience."
Dr. Arthur E. Bestor, director,
Chautauqua Institution, N. Y., said:
"It is a great achievement to handle
magic so successfully before such a
large audience (four thousand) as
covered. In fact, the disease gets
worse as time marches on.

Long Beach, Calif., his present home,
he was chief photographer for the
Caerulea, the annual there, colum
nist, staff photographer, and adver
tising manager of Poly Hi Life, the
student newspaper. He instituted the
policy of using pictures of local stu
dents in the paper's ads. This was
one of the first student newspapers
in the country to do so.
At this time he also did some
"film strips," a series of still pictures
which tell a story, to advertise the
Red Cross. While filming one of these
strips, "Film Aid to First Aid," he
caused quite a sensation. He needed
a scene of an accident with a lot of
people in it, so his father volunteered
to be the "victim." Lying out on the
highway with his face covered with
"blood," his father drew quite a

On Livy Tomb
To Close Tonight
Dr. Berthold Louis Ullman will de
liver the final lecture in a series of
addresses given by the .Humanities
Division of the faculty tonight in
Gerrard Hall at 8:30 o'clock.
His lecture deals with the myster
ious discovery of the purported tomb
of Livy, the Roman historian, and
the claims made concerning the find
ings of so-called "lost books" of
Livy's history. For many years Dr.
Ullman has spent much time in re
search on this subject and has
traced down the truth of some of
these claims to discovery.
Among his many honors, Dr. Ull
man is editor of the MacMillan Clas
sical series, former president of the
American Philological association and
author of the book, "Ancient Writing
and Its Influence." He was recently
re-elected president of the Council of
the American Classical league.
Dr. Ullman began his present job
as head of the English department in
1944. Before this he was a professor
of Latin at the University of Chi
cago, from which university he holds
degrees. He has also served on the
faculty of the University of Pitts
burgh for 10 years and at the Uni
versity of Iowa for six years, in ad
dition to his study in Munich in 1906
and in Rome at the American School
of Classical Studies for two years.
Plans are now underway to hold a
similar series of three lectures next
fall. Earlier lectures in. the .series
were delivered by Dr. Raymond Adams
and Dr. Hardin Craig, both of the
