This is the first time a course of
this type has been conducted for journalism students. It will be a three
hour course and the probable time,
according to Professor Sax, will be
the second hour on Monday, Wednesday and Friday.
The course will include the subjects
of criticism of plays, appreciation of
settings, appreciation of music, design paintings, and architecture, according to Professor Sax, who further
states that the course does not pretend to develop art critics in one semester but is merely an introduction
to the field and intends to give familiarity and scope with the subject.
The course is intended and designed
to point the way out of certain difficulties that beset the path of young
journalists who are obliged to report
art exhibitions or give dramatic criticism, according to Professor Grehan
of the journalism department.
It is very frequently the case that
graduates from the journalism department can secure more advantageous positions if they are equipped to
report art exhibitions, dramas, concerts, and other art events that are
becoming an increasing part of American community life. This is especially true in moderate sized cities where
specialists are a luxury, according to

according to Charles Heidrick, president of the fraternity.
If the honor system is to be installed at the University of Kentucky

to which their celebrated art collections are to be sent, and of this num

only state university to be so benefited. These collections on which the
Carnegie Corporation has been at
work for more than a year, are now
complete and ready for distribution
to 17 colleges in the United States
and to three colleges in Canada.
Jt was the belief that instruction in
art was impossible without proper
equipment, no matter how good the
instructor and earnest the student,
that the Carnegie Corporation appro
priated $100,000 to make up collections which should serve in the teach- gkef art as the laboratory serves
in the teaching of science.
The collection, which includes reproductions, original prints, textiles and
books, are designed to stand as a
systematic representation of the
of Occidental art. In them are
shown the works of outstanding men,
of different periods, different schools,
different techniques and distinctive
cultures. With such a collection an
instructor can make his references in

college is a set of 1,800 reproductions
