beautiful sunset, see the inoon rising

he said. But we do not use it only
in the general sense of having a sen-
sation of the beautiful, but we use its
materials, its properties every day
because each of us is at heart a poet.
Even Babbitt, the average man of all
average men, used poetic devices conl-
stantly, unconsciously realizing what

color to his language, makes it most
It is within the power of the poet
to make real to us what realism can-
not, Mr. Untermeyer declared. We
Willingly suspend all disbelief under
the influence of good poetry, making
its message the more forceful for us.
The common language is the lan-
guage of poetry, he said. Today it is
more true than ever that the language
of the poet and the language of the
average man. is the same. Years -ago
the poet embroidered his work with
literary effects peculiar to his sta-
tion, but, Mr. Untermeyer declared,
"the language of our day is the lan-
guage of our literature." The differ.-
eibe between prose and poetry, which
he emphasized with two poems of his
own, "Prayer," and "Last Poem Be-
fore Winter," is a difference in pitch;
in intensity, in feeling, in colorful
awareness of the possibilities of lan-

lecture on "Pictures in the News" at

Facsimile Idea
Will Transmit
Future' Ne ws
Broadcasting a daily nine-page
newspaper by the St. Louis Post-
Dispatch is the new development
that has been called "The Newspa-
per of Tomorrow."
The Post-Dispatch radio edition is
made possible by a new process which
permits the transmission 6f news and
photographs over the ether. Receiv
ers have been placed in department
store windows and, along with
television, may well revolutionize
modern systems of communication.
News for the radio edition is set-
up in the composing room in the
same form as it is for the regular
newspaper edition. Standard size type
(seven-point type on an eight-point
slug) is used. Pages are dummied,
arranged and made up in the com-
posing room then sent to the job
department where a clearer proof of
the composition is obtained on heavy,
glossy paper, in comparison to the
regular newspaper stock.
Proofs of the nine pages, which are
four standard newspaper columns
wide (12 ems each) and approximate-
ly seven and one-half inches deep,
are then attached to the transmit-
ting machine for' broadcast.
Of the nine pages, three are devot-
ed to regular news, one to sports and
one to radio news. Three are up-to-
the minute picture pages and the last
page is a typewritten review of the,
day's community markets, together
with any late news bulletins.
In a recent test, a picture was on
the air 30 minutes after it had been

Despite tremendous burdens of ice
and sleet, the trees of the campus suf-
fered litie major damages according
to Prr. Dow V. Baxter, of the fores-
try school.
The only serious trouble caused
by the rare ice formation was the de-
formation of some of the larger elms,
Aetracting seriously from their decor.-
ative value, he said. In the probable
event that they do not return to
their forher position and shape, they
will have to be cut down. In contrast
to these comparatively weak shade
elms, Dr. Baxter stated, the firs met
the force of the Weight encumbering

them by merely bowing their tips,
and springing back when freed.
Little damage was done in Saginaw
Forest or any other of the Universi-
ty properties, Dr. Baxter said. This
was chiefly due to the fact that forest
trees tend to shield one another.
Some beneficial action was worked
by the ice on the trees, according to
Baxter. Breakage in almost all cases
occurred at places of tree rot, and in
such places that this rot was on the
limb at' a spot out from the, trunk,
the breakage exposed the diseased
part allowirig treatinent and conse-
quent prOtection of the tree.
