Tills solitary traveler will leave the
haunts of man and traverse the ancient wilderness roads followed so
long ago by our pioneer ancestors,
headed by the immortal Daniel
Boone. For companions he will have
his horse, the birds and beasts of

the glories und beauties of nature

event is one of the chief social affairs of the year. "Preach" Givens

Dr. and Mrs. Frank L. McVey, and

Mencken's Style Debates Announced
NEW YORK, N. Y. That H. L.

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

that most frequently crop up in a
conversation with him, Willa

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
of Willa Cather, James
Branch Cabell and in The Bride of
Luis Rey, or rather in their
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

Thomas Hunt Morgan, who is now

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

world and accredited to Dr. Pryor.
