Dr. BlakemanI
To Hold New
Religious Post
'Research Consultant"
To Be New 'U' Title
Dr. Edward W. Blakeman, coun-
selor in religious education, will
hold the title of research consul-
tant in religious education, effec-
tive May 1, Provost James P.
Adams has announced.
Dr. Blakeman has resigned from
his position so that he can devote
his time to research project upon
which he has been working for
several years. He will continue to
serve as consultant to President
Alexander G. Ruthven in matters
related to religious education.
The study on which Dr. Blake-
man is working is a survey of the
administration of religion in state
universities and colleges, being
conducted under the auspices of
the Committee on Cooperation
with Religious Agencies of the Na-
tional Association of State Uni-
versities. President Ruthven is
chairman of this committee.
Provost Adams pointed out that
"in recent years special considera-
tion has been given to the ques-
tion of religion in the educational
plans of many colleges and uni-
versities." The committee and the
Association hope and expect that
Dr. Blakeman's study will throw
new light on this problem and the
ways and means by which it is be-
ing met in the several hundred in-
stitutions included in his survey,
Provost Adams concluded.

called "a very talented poet" by
Essay on Rime," which makes
the problems of poetry themselves
the subject matter of the poem, is
the latest example of the verse-
essay form, which has been used
by Horace, Boileau and Pope. "Es-
;ay on Rime," however, is writ-
ten in blank verse and attempts
to use language emotionally and
not as number," as Shapiro wrote.
It is a study of the confusions and
obscurities confronting the mod-
ern poet, and contains many eval
uations of the famous poets.
Other volumes of verse that have
attracted attention include "Per-
