Avery Hopwood's
Ideal. .
I N 1928 the late Avery Hopwood,
prominent dramatist and member
of the class of 1905 of this University, left a will
in which one-fifth of his estate was bequeathed
to the University of Michigan for the encourage-
ment of creative work in writing.
The significance of this bequest as an influ-!
ence on creative writing here at the University
was directed by Mr. Hopwood in a specific clause
included in his bequest.
This clause reads: --"it is especially desired
that the students competing for the prizes shall
not be confined to academic subjects, but shall
be allowed the -widest possible latitude, and that
the new, the unusual and the radical shall be
especially encouraged."
It is obvious that these Hopwood Awards are
designed to aid and to stimulate those students
who are interested in writing as a career. It is not
quite so obvious that such stimulation must be
"directed" and "guided" stimulation if it is to
be of maximum value. If a student is to be
encouraged to take up a career of writing, he

should also be guided into those types and qual-
ities of writing which will make his career the
greatest success.
This is what Mr. Hopwood foresaw, and for
which he so wisely provided in the terms of his
bequest. His foresight envisaged a world of books
and contemporary literature which the contes-
tant for a Hopwood Award hopes to enter some
day, a world of constant flux in standards of lit-
erary quality and popular approval. To prepare
students for this diversity of literary trends,
for the dynamic quality of contemporary poetry,
drama and prose, Avery Hopwood placed a prem-
ium on the expression of these same character-
istics in contest entries for what he designated
the "Avery Hopwood and Jule Hopwood Prizes."
In the spirit of this ideal, which saw student
oteative writing ;ads preparatory to the full-
fledged "authorship" of those contributing to
contemporary literature, the Hopwood Committee

to "keep faith" is evidenced by the Hopwood
prize-winning manuscripts themselves. They
have been approved and welcomed into the society
of modern literature by such high priests and
priestesses of modernity as Henry Seidel Canby,
Thornton Wilder, Jessie B. Rittenhouse, Louis Un-
termeyer, Burns Mantle, Sinclair Lewis, Ruth
Suckow, and Mary Van Doren -to mention only
a few- all of whom have been secured as judges
in past Hopwood contests.
Illustrations of Hopwood manuscripts which
have gained both the prestige of excellence in
student creative writing and the prestige of
"publishing house authorship" include Mildred
Walker's "Fire-weed" and Anne Marie Persov's
"Whatever You Reap."
With such a purpose, and with such results -
like the master craftsman of the medieval guilds
- Mr. Hopwood sought to perpetuate his "trade"
in ever-increasing importance and fair repute.
And like the apprentices of the medieval guilds,
student writers of the University are seeking to
insure the continued progress of their "craft"
through the training and the opportunities made
available by their "master."

Depressing Reflection
To the Editor:
No thinking student can help but feel deeply
depressed by the attitude which The Michigan
Daily has reflected toward certain campus oc-
currences this year.
After days of actively inbiting the innocent,
bewildering youths who make up our Freshman
class, you succeeded in convincing them that'
it was only good collegiate form to raise Cain on'
campus this weekend. Guided by the precepts
which you had so earnestly laid down, they
proceeded to break into a University building,
make a public nuisance of themselves to a
greater extent than has been done in the past
few years, and send a victim to the Health
Service as a result. Your reaction to all this
rowdiness was a tolerant reprimand to the effect
that they were perhaps a bit too rough, sub-
merged in columns of praise for this noble dem-
onstration of true Michigan spirit.
Strikingly different, however, is your attitude
to those most uncollegiate speciments of Mich-
igan students who actually show interest in things
of true importance. Unflinching and self-right-
eous, you heartily condemn the behavior of two
people who peaceably distribute handbills warn-
ings of the dangers of war, for example. They
just don't seem to be in good Michigan form.
It is to be expected and accepted that students
may disfigure property with puerile handbills
libelling the sophomore class. But let anyone
pass out in orderly fashion handbills containing a
rational discussion of problems affecting us all,
and we have here an action to be loudly deplored.

As Others See It
To A Young Cynic
(From the University of Washington Daily)
T HIS is the Lost Generation, as everyone says.
The battlefields were strung with corpses, and
the years that cane, with bitter flappers and
gin and-
'I can't give you anything but love, baby,
That's the only thing I've plenty of, baby."
and drunks and cynicism. Anybody who saw
anything beautiful in a woman, in a tree or a
sentence, you laughed at. Anybody who believed
in God and all his trappings, you scoffed at.
Purity and chastity and virtue and virginity
were always good for a laugh. Tenderness was

maudlin and you scorned it. You jibed at the
simple Rotarians and the Main street yokels.
You accepted graft, and realism, and international
hate, and laughed at anyone who had idealism
in politics, or was romantic, or who thought that
building bigger guns wasn't the only way to keep
people from killing each other. You laughed at
the comfort of Home and fireside, or anything
else which had managed to be revered through the
The Naval Arms Conference
ONLY an incurable optimist can view with any-
thing but cynicism the naval arms confer-
ence to be held in December at London, in ac-
cord with the mandatory provision for a meeting
of the powers that subscribed to the Washing-
ton naval treaty of 1922. Since that compact -
hailed at the time as the beginning of the end of
the naval armament race - there has been a
disheartening succession of failures to reduce the
world's armament burden by international agree-
ment. Even the Washington conference, as the,
world soon came to know, attained but a doubt-
ful success, for the limitation that it put upon
the building of capital ships gave an almost
immediate stimulus to competition in the smaller
types of war vessels. The words of the late
Arthur Henderson, in characterizing the futile
conference which began at Geneva in 1932, are
applicable to the whole disarmament movement
since the war. It has been marked by "difficul-
ties, delays, disappointments and hopes deferred."
If there is anything about the forthcoming con-
ference to justify the hope of tangible achieve-
ment, it is the fact that the peoples of the na-
tions concerned, disillusioned as they have been
by previous conferences, will not expect millen-

that in March, 1667, Mr. Samuel Pepys, writing of

if it please God, I will find one way or another
to provide for them, to remove that scandal away."''

sets, and so played some double with Tessax
Helburn as my mate, and so home for luncheon,t

with Rob Irwin and M. Duncan, and played some
pool with them, and so home and finished reading
S. Lewis's "It Can't Happen Here," and whilst It
was reading it I felt that this or that passage
was too long, but after I finished I found thati
the cumulative effect was tremendous, and the
book imagines what might happen in this land
if a dictator were President, or rather if the Pres-
ident were a dictator, and it is not so fantastic>
as it might be, neither. And it seems to me that1
not only could It Happen Here, but also that morec
of it is happening here than many of us areI
conscious of. Now when Mr. H. G. Wells pictures
what might happen a hundred years from nowc
I find it hard to read, and I do not think thatc
ten of his books of that sort are worth one "TonoI
Bungay" or The History of Mr. Polly. "But I f
think that this book of Lewis's outweighs hisa
pure fiction. That he is no deep student of Com-a
munism or Fascism is, I think, an asset to him.
For he is a terrific patriot, and cries and screams
aloud that his country is menaced by the thingsv
and the persons he hates. And it heartens me toa
think that there is somebody who still has thet
capacity for indignation, and has not grown tireds
of getting angry, like most of us weary cowardsx
who say, discouraged, "What is the use?"

EARLY up and to the office, and hard at work,
and fell to looking at a book called "Get It1
Right," by John B. Opdyke, and I said, vainglor-
iously, "I know everything that could be in this
book," so Miss Clave gave me some words to
pronounce, and I failed on Errata and Indissoluble,
the correct pronounciation being er-ray-ta and
in-DIS-sol-u-ble; which were news to me. But
I am glad to see that Mr. Opdyke stands for the
serial comma and says London, Paris, and Rome;
and not, as the newspapers and most books have
it, London, Paris and Rome. So fell to work, but
so smoothly that it seemed no work at - all; and
finished my stint by three in the afternoon, and
then fell to working on the index to a book, till
I was ready for a doctor, and said so, and Mr.t
Wallace. Brockway the argus-eyed eagle, said toe
me, "What is your malady?" and I said Indicitis."t
But the rest of it all mighty serious, save somer

BETIMES up, at seven o'clock, and read in thei
newspapers how Wm. Hearst says that het
will forswear his native state of California, be-Y
cause of the excessive taxation there, and I1
wonder how he can endure to leave it. I am
struck with the excellence of his writing, and how
disarming it is when he calls it inconsequential,
and I think that he feels that it is, but I feel that
mine is even inconsequentialer. But Lord! if1
Mr. Hearst's stuff is of no consequence, that of
most of the boys who work for him seems to met
to be lighter than air. Too, I think that Mr.1
Hearst missed a chance to be satirical, as he,
might have it he had renicknamed California the
Great Bear Down State. So Janet Wise come to
see me, and we had same pleasant talk, and soi
in the afternoon finished my indexing, and when
I came to Zuleika Dobson I burst from my cell
with a hoot and a yell, and so home and to dinner,
my wife being there too; so in the evening I
read some amusing tayles in Damon Runyon's
"Money from Home," and to bed before ten o'clock.-

my forecast was errant, and that Mr. James
Joseph Walker will sail this day for New York,
but I still feel that the return of the native will
be a short day of triumph, and that he will be
like Rip Van Winkle, and the Rip of Washington
Irving, and not the one in the song who was,
alleged to have been a lucky man. So at the
office till three, and so home and worked merrily
until seven, and so after dinner with Katharine
White to see Langston Hughes' play, "Mulatto,"
which was no more of a play, methought, than S.
Lewis's "It Can't Happen Here" is a novel. Yet
it was endowed with something of the same pas-
sionate earnestness, and whilst it seemed to me
repetitious, and the efforts at poetic utterance
by Cora pretentious and off key, said though they
were by that fine actress, Rose McClendon. So
took K. home, and Andy poured me a beaker or
two of beer, and so I home and to bed.

AWAKENED AT SIX by I know not what, and
so lay thinking of how last night the Whites
and I discussed exhibitionistic liberalism, and how
Mr. Wolcott Gibbs said that "Redder than the
Rose" was acclaimed because many reviewers did
not want to be thought illiberal in condemning
the work of a Communist. And we felt that
Langston Hughes' play would be gently dealt
with because it was written by a Negro. Now all
this may be true of juvenile critics, but I think

Starring Joan Crawford, with Brian
Aherne, Frank Morgan, Aline MacMa-
hon, and Eric Blore.
This very light-hearted picture,
which concerns the romantic ven-
tures of an archeologist who spends
his time digging in Greek ruins versus
an exceptionally wealthy New Yorker
who has a fortune too large for her
own good, is a very good piece of
screen fare.
La Crawford, who would be really
good this time if she had only re-
membered to get her eyebrows
trimmed, plays the part of the
daughter of the son of the tyrannical
grandmother, the latter being the
real power behind a huge corpora-
tion known as Bentley and Gage.
Aherne is the Irish archeologist,
Terrence O'Neil, who is so taken in
by one kiss that Joan bestows on
him when her yacht stops at his
Greek "diggings" that he follows her
all the way to New York, with matri-
mony as his object. She, incidentally
has led him to believe that she is an
office girl, as he dislikes wealthy

cessful as it might be, for the truth

Brian is covered with no end of con-
fusion, all of which leads him to give
Joan several good tongue lashings,
and leads her to one of the most
artistic room-wreckings we have ever
Claustrophobia overcomes him
when he finally agrees to marry her
and take over her fortune, since a
vice-presidency goes with it, whereas
she seems to be afflicted with agora-
phobia. Some happy medium is
reached in the end and off they go
to dig more Greek statues. As you
may see from the above, the story is
entirely one of acting and lines, and
there are plenty of both - the story
is just the story.
Crawford was almost surprising in
her extraordinary efficiency; Aherne
is capable but seems to be at his best
when scowling; Frank Morgan is per-
fect, as always; Eric Blore is the
"Bates" of "Top Hat"; and Aline

A Fox picture with Rochelle Hudson,
Henry Fonda, Slim Summerville, Ed-
ward Trevor, Margaret Hamilton, and
Andy Devine.
Hailed as the "great American
melodrama," "Day Down East" must
be very disappointing to those who
go believing all they read. However,
to one with an open mind, it isn't
at all bad. In fact, if it weren't for
the "Uncle Tom's Cabin" finale it
might be considered superior, but
this business of jumping from one
floe to another, with the trick pho-
tography being too apparent for en-
joyment, makes anyone squirm. And
then, too, the turn of events about
this time in the picture is a little too
rapid for the most firm believers in
human frailty.
Rochelle Hudson, who's really the
whole show, has had an unfortunate
experience with a very caddish cad,
gets work on the farm of an ultra
hidebound New Englander whose son
falls in love with her. A hateful gos-
sip, who played her part so well
that the audience wanted to strangle
her, brings the past to light, which
precipitates the flight across the
crumbling ice.
It's still a good show, though, and
the surrounding program is above
the average, including Popeye and a
Sportlight on the United States serv-
ice schools. Summerville and De-
vine are good comics. -J.C.F.H.

[ *: ART _." I
A collection of pastel drawings and
oil-paintings by Dean Cromwell,1
American mural-artist and illustra-t
tor, has been placed on exhibition in
the galleries on the third floor of
the School of Architecture.
The display is composed of "studies
and cartoons for the recently com-
pleted mural paintings in the Los
Angeles Public Library and the Lin-
coln Shrine at Redlands." At the
right end of the hall are eight sec-
tions of the Los Angeles murals, done
in oils. The explanatory titles of
the paintings are "Fruits of thet
E a r t h," "Education," "Mining,"
"Water," "Weaving,"."Fire," "Mill-
ing," and "Commerce." The oils are
characterized by a brilliant use ofr
light colors which, though they are
very natural, are a little too garrish
even for the scenes and the sunlit
country which they represent. In
all cases, however, the composition
is perfect; each section consists oft
a large number of representative
figures, all carefully grouped about a
single focal point or central figure.
A great deal of attention is paid to
the detail of individual figures, and
though an effective realism is
achieved, there is no lack of grace
and naturalness.
Three large pastel-crayon draw-
ings of others of the 16 panels are
placed at the opposite end of the,
hall; these are larger than the oils,
and are done mainly in greys. They
are titled "The Discovery Era in Cal-
ifornia," "The Founding of Los An-
Geles," and "The Americanization of
California." All these panels con-
tain a large number of widely diver-
sified figures, representative of the
various races which populated Cali-
fornia in the days of its early settle-
ment. Because of the careful atten-
tion which Mr. Cromwell has given
to details, especially those of the
facial characteristics of the indi-
vidual figures, each type is distinct
from the others. Each of the panels
is a living cross-section of a colorful
The detail crayon drawings of the
Lincoln Shrine lunettes are placed on
both sides of the entrance to the
hall. Some of the figures are shown
as they wereoriginally sketched on
lined sheets, and others are shown in
their fully developed forms. In these
sketches, even more than in the
panels, rich colors and clearly de-
fined details are the outstanding
features. Perhaps the most impres-
sive figure in the group is that rep-
resenting the emancipation of the
colored race. Done in grave, heavy
tones,eand surrounded by the figures
of freed slaves, it is admirably suited
to the simple dignity of the Shrine.
The smaller sketches are all ex-
amples of wonderful planning of
composition and color. The soft
tones of the pastel-crayon harmonize
so as to achieve the most pleasing
effect possible. A number of these
sketches, some ofrthem independent
Iof the Shrine murals, are studies of
monks. Especially notable among
these is a group of three monks'
heads - chargracter drawings repre-
senting a wise old monk and two
young, excitable students.
The detail drawings are of inesti-
mable value to both the student
and the observer of art, for they
show clearly what painstaking care
must be taken in the production of
a really great work of art. All of
the sketches have been corrected and
changed a number of times before
the sought-after effect is achieved,
and theresult is an excellence of de-
tail and whole. The last of these
murals was completed less than two
years ago, and although the test of
time has been short, there can be
little doubt that they will stand for

many years to come as an outstand-
ing example of contemporary Amer-
ican art at its best.

WASHINGTON, Oct. 23. - Gen-
eral Hugh Johnson's reappearance in
print in his role of "friendly" critic
of the New Deal has inspired some
sensitive New Dealers to wonder what
he might have said if that "friendly"
qualification had been omitted.
Certainly those who suppose them-
selves to be included in the general's
classification as "starry eyed" dream-
ers, to say nothing of his more pun-
