Conference Athletes Gather at
Minneapolis for Annual
Chicago, Wisconsin, and Ohio
State Given Best Chance
to Outscore Hawks.
By Sheldon C. Fullerton.
Track and field athletes from all
of the Western Conference univer-
sities will gather in Minneapolis to-
day for the annual indoor cham-
pionships which will be run off to-
night and tomorrow. One of the
closest indoor meets in recent years
is predicted, with no one school be-
ing favored to cop the title by any
appreciable margin. Iowa, defend-
ing champion, has a good chance
to repeat, but will be hard pressed
by several other teams, among
the most formidable being Wiscon-
sin, Ohio State ,and Chicago.
Many individual stars are listed
among the entries, but no one team
can show a balanced array of
trackmen that will assure it off
points in each event. The outcome
of the meet seems to depend more
than ever upon the number of sec-
onds, thirds, and fourths that the,
leaders can amass, as first places
appear to be fairly evenly distri-
buted among the main contenders.
Wolverines May Place.
Michigan's chances to take any
first places are slim, but the Wol-I
verines should take several points
for. place. Tolan and Campbell,

Poet-Critic Comments on Poetry, Criticism;

Explains Parodies in

Verse, Creative Work

Untermeyer Talks on Lawrence,'
Hoffenstein, and Others
in Interview.
"When a man reaches the age of
40, he should begin to take himself
seriously, even if no one else does.
That is why I gave up parody and
turned to creative poetry," said
Louis Untermeyer, noted poet and
critic, in an interview yesterday.
"The function of the parodist and
critic, while important, lacks the
creative drive of the poet, who is
seeking to make his mark. Others
were doing even better parodies on
my own parodies, so I felt that it
was high time for me to branch
out," he stated.
When asked about the death of
D. H. Lawrence, Mr. Untermeyer
smilingly proclaimed his innocence,
but when asked what he considered
Lawrence's place in modern litera-
ture, he expressed the belief that
his prose works would outlive the
poetry. While he considers Law-
rence's works extremely powerful,
even including his paintings, he al-
so believes that his writings are
too sex-obsessed to be of great and
lasting value.

selves to the expression of racial

of Year Old Contempt of

CLEVELAND, Mar. 6.-Freedomr
of the press won another victory3
here today when the Appellater
Court overruled a contempt of .
court conviction of Louis B. Seltzer,a
editor, and Charles K. Matson, edi-

The Appellate court ordered Ma- ,

a year ago by Common Pleas

fense at an editorial in the Pressl
which criticized him for granting1
an injunction restraining Sheriff

The lecture

series under auspices of the Hillel
According to Mr. Untermeyer,
national poetry has taken on a
new signficance within the last
decade. Outlining three principal
developments in the "twentieth
century poetry," the New England
poet declared, "The new age has
seen American poetry become es-
sentially American in a national
feeling, in range, and in language."
The rise of a poetical national
spirit in this country, he believed,
is evidenced by the wide use of
local subject matter.
Calls Moderns Distinctive.
"Writings of E. A. Robinson may
be distinguished from those of Car*
Sandburg by a mere glance at thek'
form on the printed page, whereas,
for the nineteenth century, works
of menrsuch as Longfellow and
Whhittier can easily be thought
identical," stated Mr. Untermeyer,
in illustrating that modern poets

personality through the medium of
He then advocated the proposi-
tion that the United States is cre-
ating a language of its own, which
is becoming increasingly visible on
the "poetical barometer." "In Am-
erita," observed Mr. Untermeyer,
"English is one of theumost beauti-
ful of the dead languages. How-
ever, the new 'American language'
is a most vivid and diverse affair."
Talks on Poets.
Brief opinions concerning lead-
ing poets were given, in which Va-
chel Lindsay, Carl Sandburg, and
Ezra Pound were enumerated as
respectively representing the three
classes of religious, modern, and
intellectual "jazz." The poet then
read a letter from Virginia Woolf,
literary purist, to illustrate an ideal
combination of poetry with prose
in diction.
A short anthology of poems wasj
thenhgiven. including several by
Robert Frost, and one by the lec-
turer, entitled "Caliban in a Coal
Mine." The discussion concluded
by the readng of several of the
writer's parodies on Richard Vin-
cent Benet, John Masefield, and
Edgar Guest; this was followed by
short open forum session.

Noted Author Discusses Youth
in Relation to World
Peace Movement.
Speaking on the importance ofx
youth i relation to the world peace
movement.. Prof. J. W. Matthews,
noted author and traveler, address-
ed, the first of the annual spring
All-Campus forums at 4 o'clock
yesterday afternoon in Alumni Me-J
morial Hall. Professor Matthews
who was chairman for the WorldI
Youth Peace Congress which was
held in Holland last summer, based
his talk on observations taken di-1
rectly from the conference.
"Youth looks on peace as of little
value unless justice is also embod-
ied," said the lecturer. "The moral '
ideas and energies of youth regard-
ing world peace have, especially in.
America and England, been swung'
off into social problem channels of
much less importance."
Referring to the many confer-
ences which have been called in the
past in order to outlaw war, Pro-
fessor Matthews stated that "most
i measures thus conceived are too
negative to satisfy youth's craving
for action."
In concluding, the speaker told
of the inactivity among groups of
college students who do not realize
the importance of the international I
complicationsin which the Unite d
States is daily becoiing more in-
volved. At the close of the address,
an informal discussion concluded
the forum program.
Professor Matthews is a traveler
of wide experience, especially in the
Near East and the Orient. He is
also the author of several well-
known books, one of the most re-
cent of which is "Conflict or Co-
