THE POETRY PRIZE Instituting a poetry prize at the side red it a definite move toward bet­ ter things, and something that in his day would have been looked upon by the University community as sheer madness. Attitudes are rightly changing, is the opinion of the editor. There are, probably, many people of intellect and intelligence who still view a contest for a poetry prize as sheer madness. The general opinion has been that poetry is something for women. Men have no time to waste on the reading of twaddle. But atti­ tudes are changing, as Mr. Donlin ob­ serves. We are again entering an age of poetry. The amount of verse that is being printed and published and even sold today is astounding when compared to the amount printed even fifteen years ago. The public read­ ing of poetry is becoming popular,-a fonn of entertainment that. would have been absolutely scorned five ,years ago. Women and men (an in­ tended inversion) go to hear Alfred Noyes read his assonant ballads as they would go to a lecture on the war. There is a definite interest, which will gradually become infinite, until a new age comes with its vogues and new customs. Universities have always contrib­ uted their part in keeping alive an interest in peotry. The immediate reference is to the poetry prizes of­ fered at the English universities, and the quality and quantity of that vol­ ume of verse which constitutes the prize poems. A second reference is I to the custom inaugurated by the Harvard chapter of Phi Beta Kappa of having a poem read at each annual meeting. And in many other ways have the universities done their share. Perhaps they have not done enough. Surely it is certain that the western universities have not done enough. The Poetry club, with the assistance of others interested, is now endeavor­ ing to bring to the University of Chi­ cago a new feeling for contemporan­ eous verse, amateur and .better, and a deeper interest in it. This contest is but the beginning of the plans. There is no doubt but that the Uni- .. " " , 1 i -. . THE DAILY MAROON, SATURDAY, OcroBER 20, 1917� versity community will view. these plans with grace, and will �peiate with the club. . • • Surely tl}e at­ titude toward poetry is changing, and surely the Poetry club, in its hope to hurry that change, will' not meet with any opposition or indifference, but rather with a great good will.

Both have had more experience than Blocki and Chappell which means a great deal for Purdue. Huffine, Markley and Allen are prob­ ably a little less than on a par with the Maroon backs.

Dear Sir: I am in the 25th Engineers Corps outfitted at Columbus Barracks· and have seen the work of the Y _ M. C. A. and wish to tell the students at my �C\.lma Mater a word about it first hand, as I understand a "drive" is to be made there at the University for war work. Columbus Barracks-A drizzly cold rain patters on the water-soaked ground between the shacks. The cold, fall night wind sweeps between the low houses where the soldier's cots �re lined row upon row. The lights are dim. From one of the shacks, however, comes a rousing shout fol­ lowed by handclapping and then the sound of a piano and someone sing­ ing. I follow the sound and step into one of the shacks to find it full of soldiers and a moving picture show going on. It was a thrilling drama of love and adventure and the men shouted and cheered when the hero gave the villain a slug in the ja\v, etc. When the lights faded upon the embracing lovers I went into the nern house where there was writing paper that the men could use, and then into a third house where there were games to play, such as checkers, chess, ring­ toss, etc. This is the only bright and cheerful part of the soldier's environ­ ment. And I heard a new recruit, who had just gotten out of the guardhouse for being drunk, say, "This d - - - W. C. T. U. or Y. M. C. A-7 or what­ ever it is, is the finest thing I've seen yet." Most of the men know more about it than this, but all feel the same way about it. You people at the University of Chicago can't possibly give money to a better cause, and you may rest as­ snred that every cent you have the chance to contribute will be well spent and appreciated to the fullest. -An Alumnus. paper.

NUMBER OF SOCIOLoGY MAGAZINE The parents of Duerson ("Dewey") Knight, University man who was sent to England to learn the science of flying, have received news of him in his letters. While here Knight broke the fifty-yard dash record with :05.2, and established a mark of :09 4-5 ,for the hundred yard dash. He entered the first officers; training camp at Fort Sheridan and was sent to Champagne to become a military aviator. He is now at Queen's college, Oxford. While rather disappointed at having to take the complete course over again, he is, nevertheless enjoying himself very much, according to his letters, parts of which follow: "Sports form a great part of the English training system," he writes, "and I am back again 'on the cinder path with a ten second Canadian sprinter to face. I tried some of the old speed today. 'At least some of it is left, so I may not fare 80 badly after all. I am in the best of health and spirits. The food is fine and in superabundance.
