"But, though I judge these two

find them by no means the most
interesting. Neither one has shown
the naked power that is possible Ito

future development which certainJ

Dr. Thorpe went on to explain
why he finds these writers partic-
ularly interesting. He likes their ex-!
periments in long poems very much
and -the turns those experiments
have taken. "Robinson, especially
in 'Tristam,' Dr. Thorpe continued,
"has best succeeded at the thing he
has tried to do-the re-interpreta-
tion of the old romances to suit

modern tastes. I shall say nothing
of Jeffers beyond the fact that his
work has electricity in it, and that
his daring novel verse' forms are
suggestive of all kinds of develop-

Present Stunts; Excerpts From
Junior Girls' Play.
Sixty women participated in the
hockey spread that took place last
night at six o'clock, in the lounge
room of the woman's athletic build-
After dinner an unusual program
was presented by the members of
the hockey teams. The team of
each class gave a stunt. The sen-
iors gave some carefully selected
excerpts from last year's Junior
Girls Play, the Juniors, an act en-
titled "A Pantomime in Numbers,"
the Sophomores, a novel "Athletic
Wedding," and the freshmen, a
I clever impromptu act.
Dancing was enjoyed by -the
guests, after the program had been
presented. An atmosphere of in-
!formality was emphasized by the
fact that the members of the teams
were permitted to come to dinner
straight from the field wihout
changing uniforms, making the
party even more of a success than
had been anticipated.
Jannet Micheal, '31, was in charge
of the affair, which was for the
purpose of pepping up the teams,
and getting the team members to-
gether informally, in another way
than on the field of action. Many
of those present were women who,
though interested in hockey, do not
take part in the sport themselves.
It gave them an opportunity to
I meet others interesed in the same
thing and to meet the teams, whom
they otherwise might see only in
the games.

use the same barber shops that the
men do.
