At least its decision does not satisfy his wife - Helen, who is

Last week Mrs. Sobell addressed the Socialist Club at the Uni-

Pound 'Great Poet'
"Ezra Pound is a great poet,"
Hemingway is quoted, "and what-
ever he did he has been punished
greatly and I believe should be
freed togo and write poems in It-
aly where he is loved and under-
stood." Pound is, at present, in

Continuing on Pound, Hemingway
said the poet "was the master of
T. S. Eliot. Eliot is a winner of the
Nobel Prize. I believe it might
well have gone to Pound."
Recalling his acquaintance with
writer James Joyce, Hemingway
relates that Joyce told him that
"maybe his writing was too sub-
urban and that maybe he should
get around a bit and see the world.
He was afraid of some things,
lightning and things, but a won-

About his book, "The Old Man
and the Sea," which was a sur-
prise to critics because of its sym-
bolism, Hemingway says, "No
good book has ever been written
that has in it symbols arrived at
before hand and stuck. That kind
of symbol sticks out like raisins in

right, but plain bread is better."
