Mildred Buchanan Dean Named State Mother Sweater Swing Today By Dora Lee Robertson 9. guide. Pedro, for company. We traveled by train, both passenger and freight, and sometimes even rode in the caboose, or on small track cars. On the rivers of the canoes interior, we rode in dug-oand grass boats. At times we were able to ride on river steamers. Each man had his own hammock and would have to find a place to hang it on the desk of the steamer, when nightfall came. One night, finding no place to hang my hammock, I found a woodpile and no sooner had I gotten settled than the fireman came and wanted the wood. In exchange, he gave me a wooden bench to sleep on. Of course, we traveled on mule and horseback a great deal, but much of the tune, we traveled on foot. "One day, while on a steamer, near central Peru, I saw one of the most beautiful sights which I have ever seen in my life and one which few men have seen. About 4 p. m. I went up on deck and suddenly the clouds began to slowly part and in the distance, rising 22.000 feet into the sky was Mt. Huascaran covered with snow. The mountain is usually hidden by the clouds but this once. Hie coucu. ivrt-jJ.ut Lived On Bananas Dr. Allen said that many times he lived on stewed green- - bananas as the natives do. He also said that once he had the end of his finger bitten off by a Piranha, which is a type of fish that will eat any meat within sight, man or beast, and that the natives are so afraid to bathe in the waters that they stand on rafts and pour water over themselves. "We returned from this expedition after dbout a year. However, tropical tramps always want to go back, and in a little while, I returned. This was the Centennial expedition of 1920. I came home by way of the Amazon. "Both of us began to work on the book; however. Dr. Eigenmann soon began to lose his health and took a trip to Florida to rest for a few months. He took the manuscript with him and lost it there. He returned to Indiana, and in a few months died. "After a while, the manuscript turned up in a railroad office in the lost and found department.

Data For Book Gathered From South American Trips When a man who lives in Lexington, more than 10 miles from a river, writes a successful book entitled. "Fishes of Western South America," you begin to wonder how he did it. Here is how it all came about. Dr. William Ray Allen, author of the book and professor of zoology at the University, stated that he first became Interested in South American fishes through an old professor of his at Indiana university. Dr. Carl H. Eigenmann. head of the Department of Zoology there. "Dr. Eigenmann was planning to make an expedition to South America and when he found that I was also enthusiastic about making the trip, he helped me in making arrangements which made it possible for me to go. I went as a representative of the University of Illinois," said Dr. Allen. This was the Irwin expedition of 1918-1Search In Pern "In the summer of 1918, we started our search in Peru.

( Mr. Frank Fowler's selection of Accent on Youth," for the current Guignol production was an excel lent one. Samson Raphaelson knows how to write sophisticated dialogue, and unlike many modern playwrights, he also knows how to tell a story up to a point. Fifth In Series Dr. J. Huntley Dupre, professor of history, will give an open class lecture at 2 p.m., Tuesday, April 25, in room 201, Frazee halL Speaking on the subject of "The Open Door Policy and the Ameri can Interest," Dr. Dupre will con duct this fourth in a series of open classes for this quarter. On May 5 Dr. Amry Vandenbosch, head of the department of political science, will hold the next open class in the series. Chairman of the committee in charge of deciding on classes to be held was Dr. Herbert E. Riley, head' of the botany departmeht. He was assisted by Dr. A. E. Bigge, representing the German department; Dr. H. H. Downing, professor of mathematics, and Dr. Niel Plum-me- r, head of the department of Journalism. Not Original Theme "Accent on Youth" is not an original theme; it Is the old one of playwright who the middle-age- d wins a young girl from a young rival, a theme always popular with males who have passed forty! Being a modern, Mr. Raphaelson has small regard for marriage or the marriage state. Everyone except the young actor who loses out seems to share in this moral chaos, and at the end, Mr. Raphaelson makes the young man. who started as most likeable, very much the cad. The moral tone of the play is not improved by making the actions of the characters at times more indefensible than they really are. through insufficient preparation for their actions. The dialogue and much of the character drawing is excellent. Although the first act was rather poorly done, the acting as a whole was admirable.
