of the Board of Trustees. President
Donovan made a statement relative
to establishing the rows. He stated
that the University has already financed two new sorority houses and
added that there is considerable interest in constructing houses to accommodate student members of sororities and fraternities.

Judge H. Church Ford, in the U.S.
District Court in Lexington, sustained a motion Wednesday by
Cowles Magazines, Inc.. objecting to
certain interrogatories by UK basketball coach Adolph Rupp, who has
sued Look Magazine for $250,000
damages.
Rupp's interrogatories called for
answers directed at the activities of

as a phase of determining the court s
jurisdiction over the coach's libel

books on the market in the specific field of some
f the members. Various historical questions and
subjects are discussed and frequently argued
with fully as much heat as light."
Guests of any member, if they are amateur
historians or authors, are welcome to attend
meetings. Only one woman has ever crashed the
"Thieves." She was Constance Rourke, one of
the foremost authorities on Audubon.
"Women crimp our style," exclaimed Mr.
Coleman, which would seem to indicate that the
spirit of scholarship does uot always pervade in
their private meetings.
Only One Restraint
s,
conThe "Book Thieves ' have no
stitution, officers, set programs, or dues. But
there Is one restraint, no papers may be read
during the meeting. This leaves the members
time to indulge in extemporaneous pronouncements on books, with no time limit except the
good manners of their listeners.
There Is only one rigid rule that must be
obeyed, no member must ask how or where a
brother got his latest find.
This regulation was put to a severe test many
years ago when several "Thieves" called on Lexington's famed Belle Breazing prior to her death
and before a scheduled auction sale which was
to dispose of many of the objects in her remarkable, free and easy establishment. They were
shown a valuable volume of reminiscences, and
each member made a mental note that he must
certainly make a bid on that priceless document
on the day of the sale.
But one enterprising member lagged behind
while the others continued their personally conducted tour. Back on the street he proudly un

buttoned his coat, showed the familiar volume to
his cohorts, smiled, and sauntered on down the
street. No questions were ever a.sked.

He was informed one day that the "Thieves'"
were calling one Saturday for supper, and if the
meal was satisfactory he might be taken into
their exclusive club.
Losing no time, he called on each of the member's wives and had them smuggle out two of
their husband's prized books. These he plated
conspicuously in his library. When the "Thieves"
entered to inspect his collection thev noticed
these valuable volumes. Some commented on his
excellent taste, and others were frankly perplexed.

"Where did vou get this book." one exclaimed.
"I thought 1 had the only edition of this in existence." another gasped. Finally the joke was
discovered, and it was unanimously agreed thai
Dr. Donovan was a "Book Thief extraordinary.
Even knife play has enlivened their meetings.
One afternoon Mr. Townsend brought a new acquisition to show off. a Bowie knife which had
belonged to Cassias M. Clay. After it had been
passed around, its owner returned it to his inside coat pocket, point up. Later he passed Dr.
Clark in close quarters and the knife sl;pied
from his pocket, cutting Clark's coat from
shoulder to shoulder.
Dr Clark refused to have the coat replaced,
however, despite Townsend s generou.s oiler. The
"Book Thieves'" suspect he kept the coat as it
was so he could display it and say. "Tills is my
coat. It was cut open by Cassius Clay's own,

One of the greatest failings of colleges and universities today is the tremendous importance attached to specialization. Of course a man should

An example of specialization is the engineering

addition to his technical work, is required to take

English. He is not required to take any
work at all in literature or speech. One readily sees
the Wind spot. The young builder learns nothing
of the rich store of written treasurers that are the
heritage of the Western world. Of course, in this
day when it is elemental that every man be a communicator, especially vocally, the lack of speech
training leaves another vacant spot.
In other fields, the young engineer is required to

Summer Informality
Might Have Value
During Other Terms
The informality that accompanies summer classes
seems to us a strong argument in favor of
education. After a long, stuffy winter of
classes in which professors and students maintain
an almost inhuman level of dignity, it is highly refreshing to see professors coming to class in sport
shirts thrown rakishly open at the neck.
Being strong believers in naturalness in all things,
it seems to us that the casual air of summer classes
is actually conducive to learning. How much easie
it is to sit and listen to a fellow human being talk
than it is to suffer through the intricacies called
"lectures" which seem mandatory in the colder
months of the academic year.
Another factor that makes summer classes more
simulating is the presence of older students, usually
back in school to get their Master's degrees. The
vital interest these people bring into the classroom
provides some of that "intellectual curiosity" that
the campus seems to lack at other times.
It's a sliame the pleasant aspects of summer terms
rrcn't carried over into regular semesters. We understand the University has lately evinced an interest in student and faculty morale. Might we suggest that a furtherance of informality would do
much to raise morale.
Of course we don't advocate
sport
shirts for winter professorial garb, but frank and
friendly relationships between teacher and student
could do much to eliminate the impersonalness that
almost always is a part of a large university.

Perhaps we're being a little hard on engineers
because the same basic fault is common to other
fields of study too. So many of our doctors, lawyers, teachers, and business men go forth with only
a smattering of learning about the world they are
to live in.
At the risk of being declared heretical, or perhaps
a campfollower of some of the more radical educational theorists, we wonder why our schools couldn't

with (we hope) chaotic results. No appreciation
for tragedy.

Tom Skinner, that Big Man of Radio Arts, always
looks tired after an S a.m. class he and the Toolbox
share (anel suffer) together. After moaning and
groaning about everything in general, especially a future field trip
in Geology (probably to be held
on the hottest day yet), Skinner
goes up to the radio studios. It's
nice and cool up there, which
leads one to believe that Mr. Skinner does some of his best sleeping
there. He always has such a happy look on his face
as he walks into McVey Hall.

Current Exhibition
In Fine Arts Gallery
Is By Able Artist
By DONALD L. WEISMAXN

Head, Department of Art

University students and staff members should
respond most favorably to the current exhibition in
the Fine Arts Gallery of the University. It comprises
fifty pictures in oils and pastels by the English-borartist, Leslie Cope, who lives in Roseville, Ohio.
Mr. Cope, still under 10 years of age, has been
painting for more than 20 years. His work has been
shown in the galleries of the Smithsonian Institution, the Brooklyn Museum of Art, the National
Academy, the Carnegie Institute of Art, and the
Columbus Caller)"-o- f Fine Arts. He is represented
in the permanent collections of the Library of Congress and the Carnegie Institute, and has been
awarded prizes by the Society of American Etchers.
It is apparent, after seeing this sampling of Mr.
Cope's work, that he is entirely able in his craft.
His style is free and lxld within the limits he has
set for himself. His subjects, animals and people in
landscape, are treated in a manner that evidences
first hand know ledge of them.
Mr. Cope finds a lyric quality in the rustic life he
chooses to pa'nt, and he paints it in a thoughtful
manner. lie has no affinity with such modem intuitive painters as Mondrian, Matisse, or Motherwell. He is content to document the farm and country under the vaning influences of time of day and
time of year.
A sampling of titles of Mr. Cope's pictures may
give some suggestion of the character of this artist's
interests. Among those on exhibition are "Feeding
the Calves," '"Sundown." "Winter in Ohio," "Old
Bridge, Warwick, England," "Return to the Farm,"
and "The White Barn."
In sueti pictures as his "The Junk Dealer" (number 30), and "The Hilltop" (number 1), Mr. Cope
concentrates somewhat more on the structure of his
painting and the result is a more solid and commanding unity.
The exhibition will continue through July 13.
