Miss Chenoweth has been assigned to a number of criminal cases, the most prominent of which were the Remus case and the disappearance of Ella McDowell Rogers. In the Remus case, she probably did her most spectacular and convincing work. She involved the names of Federal officials and politicians, whose names had not previously been in court record. During her work on this case, she was once face to face with death. The Rogers case took her on a st trip, besides leading her into many places. NOE SPEAKS AT TRANSYLVANIA Prof. J. T. C.

SUMMARY IVftiin We also call for and Ben Lucicn Burman, a native of Kenton county, presents an internationally celebrated novel, "Miss issippi", which Is termed by such critics as Edward J. O'Brien and Arthur T. Vance, as the literary discovery of the year. Mr. Burmcn was graduated from Harvard College and then served as a reporter on the Boston Herald, as assistant editor of the Times Star, and as special writer for the New York World, besides contribut ing to the Century, the Nation and other leading literary publications, In 1G24 he abandoned newspaper work and returned to his home in Covington, to devote himself to writing fiction. It was his idea to revive the old river life made famous by Mark Twain. He took every opportunity to travel on river packets or to talk to grizzled shantymen New Orleans or Memphis botnd. In this way he got the material for his novel, which he wrote as In the Sahara desert, for the author believed that a better perspective can be obtained by distance. Mr. Burman married Alice Caddy, formerly of Ottawa, Canada, an illustrator whose work is well known to many of the readers of the women's magazines.

Engineering Frat Founds Fellowships Tau Beta Pi Establishes Few Rules Concerning the Recipient and Use Tau Beta Pi, national honorary engineering fraternity, at its convention held recently in Iowa City, provided for six fellowships of $750 each, payable in 10 monthly installments of $75 each. One of these fellowships will be available in sufficient time to permit the recipient to begin work at the opening of the second term in February, 1930. The other five fellowships will be available in September, 1930. Few rules have been established as to who shall receive these fellowships and how they shall be used. This was done, because most existare designated ing 'fellowships for some specific purpose and a student with original Ideas will seldom find one available which will suit his needs. Applications for Tau Beta Pi fellowships for the school year 1930-3- 1 may now be prepared and sent in. Museum Gets Model Of Old Nuremberg German Art Friends in New York Present Miniature Of Famous Town A model of the city of Nuremberg as it appeared in 1G25 has been pre sented to the Metropolitan Museum of Art by the Friends of German Art in New York. Visitors at the museum may thus see the city of Albrecht Durer and the Meister-- I singer reproduced in miniature at the period when Its Gothic and Renaissance cultures reached their , happiest blending. Some 4,000 tiny buildings, with steeply pitched red roofs and myriad (dormer windows, constitute this model, which was sixteen months in the nmklntr. Director Edward Rob-- 1 inson of the museum, in accepting the model, explained that four years ago, when Friends of German Art in New York expressed a desire to make the museum some gift sym-- j bolizlng the relationship of America and Germany, this model was de- cided upon as an object of 'great value to scholars, students and the public. In making the model, Hans Schleif, Berlin architect, utilized old prints, drawings and maps, and the city of Nuremberg placed the resources of its archives at his command. The model is on a base approximately 8 by 12 feet. The houses are constructed of light weight but durable paper. "Aside from its intrinsic and associated interest as a reconstruction of the great days of Nuremberg," the museum points out, "the model will, it Is to be hoped, serve the added purpose of showing more vividly than is possible by any flat representation the actual appearance of a medieval city."

Knight of the English Department of the University, reviews Theodore Dreiser's latest book, "A Gallary of Women," in the November issue of the Bookman. The reviewer points out that this collection of stories not, contrary to a general Impression, those which have been printed partially in the Cosmopolitan supports the opinion that readers who dislike Dreiser for his realism do so. because they fail to detect the strong sentimentality which he Is equipped. Professor Knight has also a review, in the November American Literature, of the eighteenth century s, a repreletters of sentative of the French government during our to the American colonies Revolutionary!
