Russian Count Has Individ ual Opinion
Of Intelligence Of American Nation


r 1


America is a matriarchal nation and
is becmin2 more and more so. The
American Jirl is absclately original
and will cominate tfe country's
future. Bolshevism arid American-
ism will be the only two creeds in
the world very "oon.
These are a fcw of the observations
made by Count Hermann Keyserling,
ex-Russian nobleman, who spoke here
yesterday, during his tour of Amer-
ica. Count Keyserling has spent-
many years travelling from country to
country studying the people, and lec-
turing to women's clubs, as he con-
siders the women in this country more
intelligent, and the young ones most
intelligent of all. He says that the,
American girl interests him greatly.
"My first lecture was at Vassar.
Marvelous. I spent a day with them.
They are cultivated, -gay, dominating.
I study them. The American girl is
the ino-t original in the world. No
other country has anything like her.
This isra feminine country. When
your bright men do offer opinions,
they ,are bfeminine opinions. Now

'Conrad Points New
Trend In Teaching
Of Art Of Writing
"Colleges are beginning to realize
the necessity for creative, writing
courses in their rhetoric curriculum,"
says Lawrence H. Conrad of the Rhet-
oric department (of the University of
Michigan. "Heretofore, they have]
treated literature as a science and
have tried to analyze it according to
set rules, but they have found that it
failed in giving any practical trainingj
to would-be writers."
In the last few years several col-
leges and universities have brought in
unacademic instructors to help stu-
dents who show the desire and ability
to write, outside of giving them just
the mechanics. Robert Frost and
Robert Bridges served for some time
in the University of Michigan in that
capacity, and Mr. Conrad at the pres-
ent time is doing that type of work.
"College does not make a writer,
but it helps to fit him for his work,
by teaching him to use his brains in
such a way that he can think more
clearly and express himself more
easily. The further they develop the
idea off assistance in creative writing
the more benefit would-be writers will
receive from a college education.
"Not much can be said for the form-
er system of teaching rhetoric, indeed
it rather held the development of lit-
erature back. In old times writers re-
ceived most of their instruction as ap-
prentices. De Maupassant is a good
example of that type. But writers
cannot be made, for -literature starts
as an exploration and ends with a
burst of surprise at what has been

they are patriarchal natirns. France
and Spain are matriarchal in a differ-
ent way." He illustrtes this by say-
ing that America has prohibition be-
cause her women do not like to drink;
they do not need stimulant.
"Aren't you interested in the yuUv$
men?"someone asked him. "Oht.t
will all grow into Babbitta. Some ma-
.tons I hcuid study 'through the
young men, but America through her
young girls.''
The. count considers his "Travel
Diary" his best book because, "it took
me seven years to write; because I re-
wrote it again and again until it is
perfect, and because I have revealed
the soul of nations." Count Keyser-
ling never learns a language, although
he speaks many fluently. He just
"knows them all through understand-
ing the people." He objects to being
given information; he absorbs all that
without being told. He never even
reads newspapers.
At the last regular meeting of
Athena literary society, the team 4for
the upperclass debate between Portia
and Athena, on the subject, "Resolved:
that the United States should cease to
protect American capital invested in
foreign countries," was chosen.
The team will be composed of All-
etta Morton, '29, Ollie Backus, '29, and
Julia Wilcox, '30, with Freda McMil-l-
an, '30, as alternate. A committee in
full ;charge of all arrangements and
who will coach the team was also ap-
pointed. The members of this com-
mittee are Dorothy Weed, '29, chair-
man, who will be assisted by Lois
Webb, '29, and Mary Louise Brown,
'30. All of the members of this com-
mittee have either served on the Var-
