Wain" Talks
On Bridge_.s,
Other Poets
"In his isolation ,Hopkins re-
fought the whole idea of poetics,"
John Wain said today in his lec-
ture on "Gerard Manley Hopkins:
An Idiom of Desperation."
This lecture was the last of a
series of seminars and readings
which Wain has given during his
week-long stay at the University.
R "Hopkins was not an inno-
vator," Wain said, "although he
spent his life achieving tremen-
dous things," which were not dis-
covered and accredited to him un-
til twenty years after his death.
The poets for the past 100 years,
Wain continued, can be divided
into two classes. First there are
the "modern" writers, who with-
draw from society, concern them-
selves with "ultimate realities,",
and restrict their communication
to the individual reader. Eliot is
an example of this type of poet,
he said.
The other group involves itself
with industrial society, and writes
in a prose-like style directed to a
mass audience. Auden writes in
this manner, Wain added.
Bridges, who was a good friend
an dcorrespondent to Hopkins,
was also an example of the latter
type of poet. He is a good parallel
to Hopkins himself, who was a
solitary writer, with "no delings
with the, mid-19th century, ex-
cept that he drew breath in it,"
according to Wain.
Hopkins created, oultof this lack
of contact with the world, "an
idiom of solitude, of neglect, if not
of desperation, which shows none
of the Victorian pressures," Waih
Hopkins was one of the first
poets, Wain added, to create the
theory of a poem as an object,
complete in itself, created spon-
taneously, and "short' enough to
be apprehended instantaneously."
Lawyer Cites,
Anti-Trust Law
National defense and security
could be jeopardized by changes
in the anti-trust law's enforce-
ment, Gilbert H. Montague, New
York attorney and former mem-
ber of the Attorney Generas Na-
tional Committee to study.: the
anti-trust laws, said recently at
the lawyer's club.
"The attorney general may seek
to push the courts into accepting
a brand new interpretation of the
anti-trust law, under which the
United States and its allies may
sometime be precluded from ob-
taining from some great American
corporation the equipment needed
for defense and survival," he de-
However, he added, the ma-

jority of Justices of the Supreme
Court and lower federal courts
will consider the national defense
as a relevant defense in an anti-
trust suit.

Cte Causes
Of 'Unrest'
(EDITOR'S NOTE: This is the sixth
In a series that will explore the ex-
tent and character of retention,
transfer and withdrawal of students
from colleges and universities. It Is
based on a report released by he
Office of Education of the United
States Department of Health, Edca-
tion and welfare.)
The major cause for student
transfers from one institution to
another was summed up in the ex-
pression, ."I was generally dissat-
Questionnaires which each stu-
dent participating in the survey
filled out had check lists of rea-
sons for which students 1rans-
ferred, but "dissatisfaction' was
the one cause singled out by the
great majority of the students.
Dissatisfaction was highest
among students who transferred
from technological institutions
and second highest among trans-
fers from teachers colleges. The
second group was closely followed
by the third class of dissatasfied
students, those transferring from
Interest changes
Second most important reason
for transfer was change in cur-
ricular interest. This reason
seemed far more important in
technlological institutions than in
other types, the report -stated.
The reasoning behind this find-
ing is that "curricular offerings
are generally rather restricted in
technological institutions, and a
student whose interest changed
would be less likely to find the
curriculum fitting his new interest
within the same school."
Low grades as a reason for
transfer from one institution to
another was apparently of ittle
importance in liberal arts col-
leges or teachers colleges. It
ranked sixth in a list of 10 rea-
sons, and was of significantly
greater importance as a cause for
transfer from universities.
Students Undecided
Percentages of students who
transferred from each of the dif-
ferent types of institutions covered
by the survey indicated that stu-
dents who enrolled in teachers
colleges and technological institu-
tions understood more clearly
what they wanted than did those
who enrolled in universities or
liberal arts colleges.
The former two types of schools
lost 7.5 per cent and 8.6 per cent,
respectively, by transfer. Univer-
sities lost 9.3 per cent and liberal
arts colleges lost 13.4 per cent.
Transfers occur with the great-
est frequenby during' the first two
years, the report stated. Nearly 40
per cent of all transfers occur
during or at the, end of the firt;
year, and more than 83 per cent
of the total have occurred by the
end of the second year.
