Writing to The Church Review
Magazine, Mr. Stout declared that
"the day of emotional medicine men
has passed-and the day of emotion-
al religion is almost out."
"The greatest safety for the boys
in this war is not in accepting man-
made laws and rules set down by
some. one Church or another, but in
knowing facts and initiative and res-
ponsibility, and the ethics and morals
which science enforces," he added.
"If the Church expects to carry on
with what they were handing out to
youth-when the war started, without
recognizing what has happened and
is happening to the world, they will!
get in return a group of emotional-
ists, a worship of tradition and a

The annual prize award number
of "Poetry" came out in November,
and two of the six prizes went to
Hopwood poets. John Malcolm
Brinnin (major award in poetry,
1940) received the Levinson prize
of $100 for a group of eight poems
entitled "Spring Ritual" which ap-
peared in the April 1943 issue. The
Oscar Bluenthal Prize for Poetry,
also $100, was awarded to John
Ciardi (major award fi poetry,
1939) for "Three Poems" published
in the October 1942 issue, and "Five
Poems" in the April 1943 issue.
Three more poems by John Ciardi
were in the November issue-
"Night Piece for My Twenty-sev-
enth Birthday," "Mission," and
"Night Celestial."

In the outskirts of Stalingrad, Russian soldiers arimed with rifles fire from behind piles of rubble in
street fighting that turned the tide against the Germans and started Hitler's long retreat to the west.
In succession the Nazis were driven out of the vital Caucasus region and the important Russian cities of
Rostov, Dnepropetrovsk, Kharkov, and Kiev.
