With its Hopwood edition off the
press, Perspectives, campus literary
magazine, has begun a canvass of
campus literati to obtain manu-
scripts for its second issue, which will
include only material submitted by
Deadline for contributions has been
set for Friday, Nov. 3, and manu-
scripts may be left at the English
and engineering English offices, " or
at the Student Publications Build-
A general statement of require-
ments of the magazine, as expressed
by James Allen, '40, and Harvey
Swados, '40, co-editors, is: "Perspec-
tives is a literary magazine but it
should not be implied by this that
we reject all that is humorous, whim-
sical or light. We are willing to
print anything that is well done. New
Anvil says that it prefers crude vigor
to polished anality. So do we, but
we would like to get hold of some
POLISHED vigor ,and by "polished"
we don't mean stilted)."
Essay: David Spengler, '40, editor,
says: "Any essay-expository, narra-
tive, humorous, what have you-that
wanders by Perspectives will be en-
thusiastically snatched in and read.
And re-read.
"If the essay tries to reform, teach
or tickle, it will be judged by how

well the staff is reformed, taught or
or tickled. It can hate men or mush-
rooms in general, or economic or
educational systems in particular;
just so it hates well. It can insist
that the Poconos are more beautiful
than the Rockies; just so it insists
well. It can read anything into any-
thing; just so it reads well."
Fiction: Hervie Haufler, '41, editor,
says: "Every story that is submitted
to Perspectives is carefully read and
judged by the fiction staff. We have
tried to dissolve all rules of prefer-
ence or prohibition, and desire the
so-called "plot" story fully as much
as less pointed sketches of character
'or scene. Surprise-ending short-
shorts, short plays and radio skits will
be considered. Humor is sought after
but is seldom well done. Word-
lengths may range from short vig-
nettes of several hundred words to
stories as high as 5,000 words. In
rejecting sumitted manuscripts, the
fiction staff will this year strive to
make some constructive criticism of
each story that is not suitable for pub-
Book Review: John Malcolm Brin-
nin, '41, editor says: "I have my own
staff of reviewers, but if anyone wish-
es to review some particular book I
will lend it to them from the Book
Room (which he operates). I would
welcome reviews from people in spe-
cial departments-engineering or
psychology, for instance-criticizing
popular books that fall within their
'fields of interest."
Poetry: James Green, '40, editor,
says: "Generally speaking, Perspec-
tives will print, in the way of poetry,
anything from a couplet (rhymed or
unrhymed) to an epic It would be
presumption on my part to define
poetry but it is not such on the part
of the poet. Anything which he sub-
mits under the name of poetry .'.l
be considered as such The test will
lie in the matter and manner and
not in any superimposed demands."
Prom Committee To Meet
A meeting of the Soph Prom cen-
tral committee will be held at 8 p.m.
today in Room 304 of the Union,r
chairman James Kehoe, '42E, an-,
nounced last night. Committee posts
will be decided upon at that time.
