NIGHT EDITOR--RANK 1. GILRETH
THURSDAY, APRIL 21, 1932 r o e o e
Convention City
T~WO conventions here this week bringing
1eminent doctors from all over the nation, the
meeting of thoracic surgeons, and the Nu Sigma
Nu medical fraternity fiftieth anniversary celbra-
tion, re-emphasize the point that Ann Arbor is
rapidly becoming one of the leading, if not the
leading, convention city in the state. Whether
the newly created department of the University
in charge of outside contacts is the cause or the
result of this we are not in a position to say. How-
ever, this tendency which has become markedly
evident within5 the past few years should give the
new vice-presih ent something to think about and
perhaps be proud of.
Almost every brand of delegate from the itin-
erant grocer and meat dealer to the eminent visit-
ing scientist with his chronic susceptibiliy to
presenting long winded papers and talks have
made Ann Arbor the scene of their annual revelry
at some time during recent months.
Chief of these meetings to look forward to
durfing the next six months will be the gatherings
of the international lawe experts during the sum-
mer. gnd the national assemblage of scientists
schec led to be here in September. This last
marks the first time that the national academy has
mnet west of the Hudson in the long history of its
distinguished existance.
Among the time honored favorites which come
and go each year with the regularity of the seasons
and final examinations are the Schoolmasters of
the state and the High School debaters who we
have still in store for us this year, also the state
highway engineers, the officials of college student
unions, the members of the press of Michigan, the
high school journalists, gatherings of high school
musicians, and this year for the first time Rotar-
ians and Boy Scouts.
So let's polish up the front door of the Union,
dust under the seats of the Natural Science audi-
torium and prepare to greet the influx attracted
to the new convention mecca of the middle west
AT THE MAJESTIC
"Devil's ottery"
Elissa Landi, importation from deah o' England,
does a pretty piece of work as the wronged woman
in "Devil's Lottery." There is something about the
actress, probably best defined as sheer good looks
and an ability to put herself across, that goes over
swell in1 this particular role.
The plot, interesting but not unique, takes the
four winners of a Calcutta Sweepstakes, transports
them to the magnificent castle of an English lord.
and brings no end of trouble to the w-aek-ending
party.
Victor McLaglen, as a limehouse district "limey"
whose mother (admirably played by Beryl Mercer
was one of the winners, has a difficult part. Difficult
because the lines alotted him tend to an over-playing
of the part, a circumstance which is never for the
best. He does well with them however, and, f or-
tunately, injects his usual humor.
Unquestionably the best bit of acting, aside from
that of Miss Landi's, is done by Ralph Morgan, who
I ms the role of a paralyzed soldier, who has spent
thirteen years in an army hospital until the time
of becoming one of the sweepstakes winners.

TfHE 1-OPWOOD PRIZES
To The Editor of The Saturday Review:
Sir:
An article in one of your recent issues concerning,
the Avery Hopwood prizes and awards for original
writing interested me very much. The comments
of Professor Howard Mumford Jones, in particular,'
were illuminating. Granted that the conditions o"
t he awards-the large financial sums involved, tin
rather unusual conditions imposed upon candidates',
Iwork, and numerous other factors--make the prize
awarding more than ordinarily difficult, it yet seenm,
to me that it would be possible to carry out the don.
or's intentions a little more successfully. In the;
first" place, it woud appe a'r wiser should the decision.-
as to the awards be made by a person or- persons it i
sympathy with that school of writing which thic I
donor evidently had in mind when he stipulated that
the prizes should go to writers exemplifying the new.
the original, the radical. The point was made in'
your mragazine that few college students w ere capable(,
of prcducing work that was either very original 01
radical save in so far as ii; was imritation of oth lt
writers commonly accepted as being of this' tyt>
However, since the awards are to be made, and TI pr,
sume with regard to the donor's wishes in the matteer
there seems to be nothing left but to give them [c
students whose work seems most likely ini later year,
to follow tine "radical" school. My point is that the
judges of these awards should be persons who appre-
ciate and understand the more advanced writers like,
Eliot, Pound, Joyce. Stein, and Williams. Otherwvise
how can they know whether the studentsi are trying*
to create work in the tradition of these or'iginal
people?
Without* attempting to cast any discredit upon'
Professor Jones, I seriously doubt his ability to judge
original and radical work. I have not forgotten a
remark he made about the greatest poet of our gei-
eration. He said, "The poetry of Ezra Pound is the
poetry of an insolence that is empty." Now how cain
lie appr'eciate or understand a young writer wxhc
realizes Mr. Pound's greatness and is therefore quit&
susceptible to his influe'nce ? This student's worlk I
may be imitative, but at least it is modelled upon
a master's work. Professor Jones in his remark-
seemed to deplore that the students were imitatin,
Hemgway arid the "transition" group. Since he
feoels that the ' majority of them will of necessitlyI
imitate someone, what can be his objection to theil
imitating these writers? I suspect that Professor
Jones himself has little or no sympathy with such,
writers as Hemingway, Stein, Joyce tI know he hati
none with Pound}t, and thus cannot help but con-
demn his students for showing their admiration by
imitating this school of literature. It will be inter-
esting to see what students' work is awarded the'
prizes. Perhaps it would be even more interesting
to see the work of the students who were not given'
any rewvard. Under the conditions stipulated by the
donor, I can see no way for Professor Jones to gel i
around giving the awards to the extremely radical,
it would certainly be inconsistent to award the prizes
to imitators of such writers as Edna Millay, Edith
Wharton, James Branch Cabell, Thornton Wilder
and the rest of the reactionaries. Tf. C. Wilson.
