To Publish "Readings From The American Mercury" Another book to bear upon its title page the name of a professor in the University of Kentucky will soon appear in Readings from the American Mercury, edited by Grant C. Knight. The volume, published by Knopf, is to be a collection of representative essays culled from the files of the American Mercury and meant to serve as collateral material for courses in advanced composition and essay writing. The choosing of Professor Knight for this work indicates that our English department, recognized as among the best in the South, has attracted the attention of H. L. Mencken who, as everyone knows, is not overly friendly to pedagogues. This will be Professor Knight's second book to appear in 1925; the first, Superlatives, also published by Knopf, has been widely read, and re viewed in the Book Reviews of the New York Times, The New York Sun, The Saturday Review The Chicago Tribune, The Boston Transcript, The Christian Science Monitor, and other papers of critical authority.
