Years o Service Internationally Known Authority on Ossification of Bones Will Suspend Active Class Room Work July 1 ; Administered Ether for First Time in History of Lexington &' ft' 1929 International Professor Likes Mencken's Style Debates Announced NEW YORK, N. Y. That H. L. Mencken Is the outstanding critic In America today, and that students of the present are not different from those of his undergraduate years arc the opinions expressed by Professor Goodman of the college of the City of New York when Interviewed recently. His crlterlons in Judging prose style arc suggested by the names that most frequently crop up in a r, conversation with him, Willa Thornton Wilder, James B. to pin him Cabell. It Is difficult down to any specific preferences in Grudgingly he current literature. will admit to you a liking for Willa Cather, May Sinclair and then stop to explain that one who reads so much In contemporary literature is compelled to look for an author's purpose In writing a book and whether lie accomplishes his end, nnd not to think in terms of favorites. At the risk of repetition we will say that no one can have any dealings with Professor Goodman and not be Inspired to read something of Willa Cather's. Although professors make Mr. Mencken froth at the mouth, Professor Goodman, more tolerantly, considers him an excellent critic, in truth the only outstanding one in America at present. Stuart Sherman, he would rank above Mencken were he alive. He refers to Babbitt as a "frightfully written novel" whose style is like that of a mediocre Journalist. He discerns in the books of Willa Cather, James Branch Cabell and in The Bride of Luis Rey, or rather in their Ban popularity, a definite, movement away from naturalism and realism. In person Professor Goodman is short and stocky with a trace of the aesthetic. He dresses soberly and with unusual fastidiousness. He is a dark visaged person. He has a classroom laugh that approaches the giggle of a girl and which we would not dare try to reproduce. He does not find the student of today to be far different from the' student of his day. "He has better sense of values and knows the value of money better," but his equipment shows deficiencies. He hasn't read as much and as good things. Only one out of fifteen recognize the names of Willa Cather, Professor Beard and wniiam Beebe. The majority of freshmen can hardly differentiate Wells from Shaw. A striking number never have been to a museum Goodman feels that college does much to remedy this whether the student wills so or not. Class rivalry is today as intense as then except that then the juniors were aligned with the freshmen, and the seniors with the sophomores. Professor Goodman still carries a souvenir booklet passed out at the soph banquet of the class of '19 to which he was invited as a senior. Professor Goodman's remark about student government should have a special significance to some: "I don't know anything about the student council today, but In my day it was a talkative and very often inefficient body, and a great disappointment to one who believed in student We like to conjure the Image of Professor Goodman teaching Theodore Dreiser. John T. Hodscn, then known as the greatest surgeon In the West. He came to Lexington, Ky in 1882, and since that time has made his home here. In 1890 Dr. Pryor became the third man to teach Physiology in the State College, succeeding Dr. Thomas Hunt Morgan, who is now professor of Experimental Biology at Columbia University. Before 1888, physiology had been taught In connection with natural history. Shortly after this the college established one of the first courses in the United States. Among the many well known men who have studied under Dr. Pryor was the late Dr. Arthur S. Loevenhart, former Head of the Department of Pharmacology and Toxicology at the University of Wisconsin, and Dr. William ' Carpenter MacCarty, present pathologist of the Mayo Clinic. Dr. MacCarty has often said that he received his inspiration from Dr. Pryor and recently wrote the latter a letter In' which he said, "I am sending you some of my re cent reprints, showing your influ ence still exists." Dr. Pryor first became interested research work in 1890 fol in lowing an accident which occurred to a student in the College of Engineering. The young man lost several fingers In a planing machine and Dr. Pryor dressed the wound. Some time later he had an X-rmade of the boy's hand to see how the ends of the bones were healing, From this time he .made frequent pictures of children's hands in order to study the ossification of the bones. In this work he has made several discoveries relating to the growth of the bones and he was the first man to establish the difference in the ossification of the male and female skeletons. He also discovered that ossification begins much sooner PERMANENT than had been thought before, and corrected the prevailing textbooks MARCEL WAVE on the nature of ossification in the carpus. These views have been accepted by textbooks all over the world and accredited to Dr. Pryor. During the time he lit5 been connected with the University, he has been a member of the City Board of Health and the Fayette County Board of Healfh for more than 10 years until his resignation. He has also been president of the Fayette County Medical Society, first vice president of the Kentucky State Medical Society, and a member of Source Research Council of the United States.

Kentucky. (ny Elizabeth Glbbs) After 39 years of service to the youth of the University of Kentucky, Dr. J. W. Pryor, Internationally known authority on the ossification of bones, has occn assigned to research work and will retire from active teaching July 1, 1929. He will still be connected with the University but his absence from the class room will be keenly felt by the many students who love and respect him. Dr. Pryor first became connected with the University as Medical Examiner In 1886 when the Institution was an Agricultural and Mechanical college known as the State College. He began his classroom Instruction work In 1890 and since that time has been continuously connected with the institution. Dr. Pryor holds the distinction of being the only man in Kentucky whose name is listed in all of the following organizations: American Men of Science, Who's Who In America, Who's Who of American Surgeons, Physicians and and Who's Who of American Authors. He was the first man to administer ether in Lexington. Born in Palmyra, Mo., on April 3, 1956, Dr. Pryor received his early education in a private school of that city. He later was graduated from St. Paul's College, an Episcopal school of that community, and finished his schooling as a graduate of the Medical Department of the University of Missouri. He beer gan his career as a general in Palmyra and treated his first patient in the same house where his father, also a doctor, had treated his first Mlssourlan patient 25 years before. Several years later he went to St. Louis where he was for one year in the office of Dr. I DENTISTS Drs.

These teams will represent Oxford University, Cambridge University, and Victoria University College of New Zealand. A charge of $125 for each debate is made to the American colleges wishing to hold a debate with one of the visiting teams to meet expenses. Colleges should make application to the Foreign Relations Office of the N. S. F. A., at 218 Madison avenue, New York City. The activity ot international debating was started about five years ago under the auspices of the Institute of International Education nnd was turned over to the Foreign Relations Committee of the N. S. F. A. a year ago. At first only teams from Oxford came to the United States for debating but as the interest In international debating grew in this country, Cambridge nnd the British Dominions began to send teams also. Each team spends about seven weeks in the fall term traveling through one section of the United States meeting our colleges In debate. The National Student Federation of America plans to rotate the territory visited By the teams and this year Is sending the Oxford team west of the Mississippi river, Cambridge through the south and central West, and New Zealand to the East. As it is impossible lor tne teams to meet their own traveling and living expenses during the tour, American universities have always Invited these foreign teams as their guests. Each American college Included in the schedule of the visiting teams pays a fee of $125 and offers hospitality to the members of the team for the day of the debate. During the past year two teams came from England and one from Australia, and one from the National Federation of Canadian University Students. One of the English teams was the first woman's team to come to the United States for debating. It repreinternational sented the National Union of Students of England and had a most successful tour.
