For Hopwood

By Generous Awards

novels demonstrate well the notice
that the contests have received in
the literary world.
The judges for the contest are al-
most invariably widely known and
respected literary figures. In years
past they have included such littera-
teurs as Sinclair Lewis, Dorothy Park-
er, H. L. Mencken, Van Wyck Brooks,
Franklin Pierce Adams, Thornton
Wilder and numerous others.
The headquarters of the contest is
the Hopwood Room on the fourth
floor of Angell Hall, which in addi-
tion to its function of receiving en-
tries and providing information for
the contests, has been a9cquiring a
respectable library of modern books
and periodicals.
Cleans House,
begins Serving
After a week o intensive ,cleaning,
wallpapering, furniture moving afid
more cleaning on the part of the 19
members of the new Congress Co-
operative, the house is officially op-
ened and began serving meals this
Organized by a committee of Men's
Congress under the chairmanship of
Douglas Tracy, '40E, the house is
organized along the Rochdale prin-
ciples followed by the Robert Owen
and Rochdale houses here. All the
work including cooking, dishwashing,
purchasing and accounting is done by
the members.
The three houses are working to-
gether as much as possible to avoid
duplication of effort and to achieve
maximum efficiency. The stewards
plan meals together and are doing
research on foods. Purchasing is al-
so centralized.
The house plans to have eight
boarders, in addition to the regular
membership, as part of an education
program for those interested in liv-
ing in the house in the future. All
those interested in applying as board-
ers are urged to communicate with
members of the cooperative.
Officers of the house include Doug-
las Tracy, '40E, president; Jay Rock-
well, '40, treasurer; Arnold Kleiman,
'40BAd., accountant; Lawrence Gluck,
'42, steward and William Rockwell,
'41, housemanager
The popular impression of a co-
operative as a cheap place to eat and
sleep is an erroneous one, accord-
ing to one member of the house. The
-main advantages in cooperative living
are to be found in the elimination of
social and racial prejudice, in the
development of true democracy with-
in the group and the furthering of
initiative in solving common prob-
