According to Prof. Oscar J
Campbell, of the English depart-!
ment, Professor Jones "has the
greatest reputation in the study of
American literature of any man+
since the death of Professor Par-,
rington of the University of Wash-1
ington." His great study has been
the French influence in the writ-I
ings of the early American authors.
At different times, Professor
Jones has assumed the role of au-
thor, poet, critic and teacher. His
best known writing is the first vol-
ume of a series of the French in-
fluence in America. The second,
volume of this set is now in prep- I
He has written some excellent
poetry and has translated into
English "The North Sea" by Heina'
and many medieval Latin lyrics.
As a critic, he has written wide-
ly in the "New Republic," "Virgin-
ia Quarterly," and the "Forum"
where he debated with Will Du-'
For some time, he was professor
of comparative literature at the;
University of Texas. Later, he was
made professor of English at the
University of North Carolina where
he was acting head of the depart-

' Sellars of the philosophy. depart-
ment will address the fifth of a
spring series of All-Campus Forums
at 4 o'clock tomorrow afternoon in
Alumni Memorial Hall.
Professor Sellars, who has edited
a series of books dealing with phil-
osophical thought, is the author of
one entitled "Religion Coming of
Age." He has made an extensive
survey of this subject which at
present is enjoying more than or-
dinary interest over the country as
well as in the University itself.
In his discussion Professor Sel-
lars will explain humanism, the use
of the term, and the two types, lit-
erary and philosophical religious
humanism. He will follow these
definitions with his own interpre-
tation of the question. He is ex-
nected to comment on the funda-

position, the title of which has not1
been announced. Certain well-;
known phases of Ypsilanti activity.!
will furnish the subject for the skit,
Klein said yesterday.
All the scratchiness of the pro-
fessional product will be reproduc-
ed in a vitaphone skit which is to
be produced by Paul Showers, '31,,
one of the Gargoyle editors, it is;
promised. In addition to the talk-i
ie movies which are thus presented,,
two reels of silent motion pictures,
taken especially for presentation at{
the grid banquet will be run off,,
it is announced.
Tobin Writes Skit.
Richard L. Tobin, '32, is author of{
a skit which deals with many man-
ly sports, including boxing and ping
pong. A melodramatic atmosphere1
will be added by the introduction1
of an incidental pistol duel.
After the skits, a speech by Roger
M. Andrews, editor of the Detroit
Times, will open the market for the
Sigma Delta Chi exchange. It is
promised by the committee in
charge that the usual stock ex-
change clamor will be supplanted
by the sharp clash of wits of the
University's best humorists.
All Speakers Not Chosen.
Other speeches have not beens
definitely announced as yet, but
they will be short and few, Warner
said. An attempt is to be made to
avoid the monotony which some-
times results from a lengthy list of
Applications for tickets are be-
ing received rapidly at the tempor-

mails Saturday. After that time,
a desk will be maintained in the
Union lobby.
Beginning today and continuing
through Thursday, the Michigan-
ensian will hold its final subscrip-
tion sale on the campus in order
to guarantee that all who wish to
purchase the year book may do so,
it was announced yesterday by
Sam H. Atkins, '30, business man-

all subscribers have been supplied.
