It Is a great thing to learn to cheer In unison, to sing with your fellows, to count your score up to eighteen or twenty-on- e together. Group effort Is Important as individual effort. It is a great thing to break the monotony of thinking and feeling, to get off the dead level. No Important work was ever brought forth without intense feeling. Emotion and creation arc handmaidens.

Introducing personal reminiscences of famous literary figures into his talk, Mr. Ernest Rhys, widely known editor of Everyman's Library, poet and critic, lectured on "Modern English Novelists" in the main lecture room of Baker Laboratory at Cornell recently. With every contemporary writer that he discussed, Mr, Rhys gave some intimate touches of his life and work. In determining the greatest novelists of all time, Mr. Rhys ascertained from both Conrad and Galsworthy, among others, that they ranked Dickens and Thackery first. Speaking of Shaw, Mr. Rhys told of his first meeting with the author. He pictured this remarkable Irishman as tall, impressive, and having was influenced a white beard.-Sha- w most by the great novel of Samuel Butler, "The Way of All Flesh," whtrVi Mr Rhvs ripsorlhps as nnp rf flio fnnV nnnalc The Denton Co. -- Incorporated Treasure Hunt!

The editor described his visit to Hardy at his home, and told of the funeral of that great novelist, among the pallbearers being Shaw, Galesworthy and Kip-- 1 lng. Shaw said that Kipling trod , on his heels the whole way of the t procession.

I The present books deal much more j with nerves, and associated subjects, i Mr. Rhys commended the works of Aldous Huxley, remarking how much he r.esembles his grandfather Thomas Huxley. Mr. Rhys did not feel capable of discussing American authors, but stated that America is influenced by English tradition. He told of his visit to Walt Whitman in the poet's Camden home. The lecture concluded with a prophecy that the future holds still greater possibilities than the present period of the English novel. A grape fruit is a lemon that had a chance. Ex. W. W.
