Plays of Columbia Students Published
''Copy 1928" Contains
Works by University




"Copy 1928," a book of four com
plete plays from the work of students in the play writing courses at
Columbia University, is off the press
and available for sale. These plays
were selected by a committee of six
prominent playwrights, and comprise
in their opinion, the best work done at
Columbia this year.
Hatcher Hughes, who won the Pul
itzer Prize with his play, "Hell Bent
for Heaven," wrote the introduction
to the volume. D. Appleton and Co.
are the publishers of the book.

Troy Perkins, of Lexington and

In his article, Mr,

Perkins satirizes those who think of
culture as something to be acquired

individual thing.
Mr. Perkins has long been prominent in Lexington literary circles.
His play, "The Visiting Lady," a comedy in three acts, was produced last
fall by the Romany theater and enjoyed one of the outstanding successes of the season.

Humorist Says That

Pittsburgh College

Has Wrong Policy

(By New Student Service)
Can. Stephen Lea- MONTREAL,
cock, better known as a humorist than
as professor of economics at McGill
University, was hardly joking when
he told University of Pittsburgh students that their Cathedral of Learn
building, as he
ing, or "high-up- "
calls it, is all wrong.
"I should prefer the dream of hie
and elm trees of the old college cam
pus to anything the Cathedral of
Learning might offer," he said. "Your
campus will be rubber trees on the
fiftieth floor and the shaded lanes will
be elevator pits.
"L have realized that the world has
changed since my youth. When I
first heard of the proposed design for
the Cathedral of Learning I could
hardly believe that so extraordinary
a building would be put into actual
effect. Now I begin to think that my
ideals and those of the older generation will go the same path as prejudices and hates.
"Buteven up there on the fiftieth
floor," Mr. Leacock admitted, "you
will be doing characteristic work. We
can, like the White Knight in Alice
in Wonderland, learn to think upside
down if we only know how."

Paul P. Boyd, dean of he College
of Arts and Sciences, will leave Sat

Parking signs have been placed

attention be given to where the
cars are parked. Many of the students are from out of town and

more days in which to register. Dr.
Funkhouser, dean of the Graduate
School, said that he expected a total
enrollment of over 300 for the first
term. A larger program has been
offered in the Graduate School than
ever before in order to meet the demand
of city superintendents of

who are doing graduate work. The
College of Education is attempting
to meet this need by organizing such
courses as will best serve the purpose.
Besides the graduate school, courses are being given in all the colleges
of the University, including the Arts

ing, Law, Commerce, and Education.
Each colleee offers almost a full tiro- gram for the summer and most of
