The favorable epitaph will be
read by Edward L. Warner, Jr., '30,1
sports editor of The Daily and gen-
eral chairman of the banquet com-
mittee, as a sincere tribute of Sig-

Because of the special menur

must be curtailed some time before
the banquet begins, in order that
the special dishes may be prepared

it has been announced. Although
tickets were sold at the door in for-I
mer years, the sale today will cease1
with the closing of the Union booth
at 5 o'clock this afternoon.

Robert Frost, Pulitzer Prize
Winner, Discusses What
Sound a Poem Makes'. l
"Richness of vowel and consonant
does not make poetry," said Robert
mrost, noted poet and winner ofl
the Pulitzer prize in 1923 in his
talk on "What Sound a Poem1
Makes" at 4:15 o'clock yesterday in'
the Lydia Mendelssohn theater.
"The ultimate thing," he contin-l
ued, "is the sound, not of vowel and4
consonant or of music, but the
sound of the meaning in relation.1
to a meter and the deeper the
meaning, the richer is the sound."'
Though his lecture consisted, pri-
marily, in the reading of selections
from his poems, he interspersed his1
reading with short and often hu-j
morous explanations of the mean-I
ing of his writings, "There is," he
said, "no meaning which anyone
can get out of my poems that I will
not accept or claim."
Displaying a remarkable versa-
tility in subject matter and style,
his reading ranged from metaphy-
sical poems such as "West-Running1
Brook" which he afterwards saidE
was "all nonsense" to the more ob-
vious ones like "Peck of Gold" and
"The Armful." In addition, he read
a series of short plays in poetry in-
eluding 'The Cow's in the Corn"
and "The Death of the Hired Man."
At the present time, Frost holds
a permanent "idle professorship" '
at Michigan and is, as he terms
himself, a "no-time teacher." For
three months during the year, he
serves in similar capacity at Am-
herst. Two weeks he spends in trav-
elling and lecturing and the rest
of the year he stays at his farm in
This was the first of a series of,
two lectures which he will give at
Ann Arbor under the auspices of
the University. The second will be
presented at 4:15 o'clock today in
the Mimes theater.
Present economic trends show
that the capitalistic order is in
imminent danger of overthrow was
the opinion of Dr. Marin A. Lar-
son, leader of the Socialist-Labor
party, in an informal talk before
the round table club in the Wo-
man's League building last night.
This observer of social and eco-
nomic trends says that a capital-
istic regime is dependent upon ex-
pansion of industry, and. that the
saturation point was reached in
1907. He then went on to propound
the theory that the World War,
brought on through the machina-
tions of the capitalists, was the
life-saving event that kept the
capitalists alive for 15 more years.

meeting last night in the society
rooms, Sher M. Quraishi, '32, urged
I a better understanding of the
movement for independence of the
people of India.
"The greatest movement in the
social or political life of the world
in the past four or five thousand
years is the attempt to secure free-
dom and happiness by peaceful
means. This is represented in In-

Mr. Quraishi declared.
Mahatma Ghandi, according to
his statement, is acting on behalf
of the vast majority in India, and
is the symbol of the whole move-

peaceful methods. "The British in
India," he continued, "are entirely
