Winner Of Harper's
Prize Plans To Go
Into Literary Field
By Catherine Price, '30
"The Living Sand" is a short story
written by a University of Michigan
student, and it won the first prize in
the contest recently sponsored by Har-
per's magazine. It was considered
the best manuscript submitted by col-
lege undergraduates during 1927. The
story is based on actual life and the
characters are true. The moving in-
cident is one which really happened
in Miss Leokadya Popowska's child-
hood. It was written for the short-
story class conducted by Professor H.
A. Mallory, and was submitted to Har-
per's in the original form.
Miss Popowska is now a senior in
the school of journalism. "Before this,"
she says, "I intended to enter the lite-
rary field, and now that I have had
this great encouragem'ent, I intend to
seriously devote my time to it. After
I graduate I expect to travel in Europe
for a year, visiting and studying. Then
I want to begin my work immediately."
The story "Living Sands" is a sim-
ple, and forceful tale of the tragedies
of life, and of the needless pain a
few selfish individuals can cause. It
is written from an odd viewpoint, that
of a child's recollections, memories of
inconmprehensible'factors in an unsus-
pected domestic drama.
Only those happenings that most
impressed her were remembered. The
story is presented in an unusually
vivid manner, and the action though
smooth proceeds in a rapid manner.
The story hinges on Stefanie's great
love for her husband George, who is an
utter cad. Complications arise, and
Stefanie, who has known of her hus-
band's unfaithfulness and yet for-
gives them, makes a supreme sacri-
fice in order to make things easier
for him.
The final game of the interclass se-
ries was played yesterday afternoon,
when the Seniors defeated the Juniors
by a score of 12 to 5, and thereby won
the class championship. The game
was rather uninteresting, as it was
extremely onesided, and was featur-
ed by no remarkable playing, either
in the field, or at the battery.
The class standing is as follows:
Seniors, first place; Juniors, second
place; Sophomores, third place. The
Freshmen failed throughout to put a
team in the field.
