Excellent Work In Stories

Prof. Stuart P. Sherman, of the Eng-
isb department of the University of
llinois, has accepted President Marion
L. Burton's invitation to address a
university convocation which will be
feld in connection with the annual
convocation of the Michigan School-
masters' club Friday, April 4, in Hill
auditorium. Professor Sherman's sub-
ject will be "Towards An American
Type."
Professor Sherman has recently em
"rgd into national prominence by the
lpulication of his books "Americans"
and "The Genius of America"and by
numerous magazine articles, the most
discussed of which is his "Conversa-
tion With Cornelia" which appeared in
the January Atlantic Monthly. In
All ofthese Professor Sherman has
forcibly championed the much-ridi-{
culed "puritan tradition" and has de-
livered many attacks upon the ultra-
realistic school of novelists represent-
ed by Dr'eiser, Hecht, Anderson and
"Hergesheimer.
ProfessorSherman secured his
bachelor of arts degree at Williams
college in 1903 and his master's de-
gree from Harvard the following year.
He was awarded the doctor of phil-
osophy degree in 1906 by the same in-
stitution. Since 1907 he has been on
the English faculty at Illinois during
which time he has become one of the
mnost popular figures in the university
ife. 'He has edited many literary
classics for textbook use and is an
associate editor of the Cambridge His-
tory of American Literature. He was
recently elected a member of the Na-
tional Institute of Arts and Letters.

.MUSIC AND
MUSICIANS
Palmer Christian, University organ-
ist was heard in the sixth recital of
the twilight organ series, yesterday
afternoon in Hill auditorium, present-
ing a program of wide musical inter-
est in some works of several well-
known organ composers.
Mr. Christian's rendition of Cesar
Franck's "Piece Heroique" was the
high spot of the afternoon's perform-
ance, The demands on the technique
of the player, though not exhaustive,
was handled in a manner defying crit-
icism. The exacting shadings re-
quired of the piece to make it inter-
esting and yet stand out as a unit,
were executed with remarkable skill
and dexterity.
The "Fantasia in G minor" by Bach,
suffered visibly from a lack of con-.
tinuity, caused by an over-emphasis of
the cadences, and which left the hear-
er in a state of perplexity.
In the playing of Debussy's "Pre-
lude to 'La Damoiselle elui," Mr.
Christian exhibited many vari-colored
though not blinding, changes of regis-
tration which in spite of their extreme
beauty did not detract the listener
from the composition itself, but rath-
er the means of expressing it more
effectively. F.K.S.
