'TWO HOURS OF FINE ENJOYMENT! WELL-NGH
SUBERB !" - Bosley Crowther, N.Y. Times
NEW MILESTONE IN MOTION PICTURE HISTORY IN

By VERNON NAHRGANG
If a freshman is given a list of
24 books representing many fields
of learning, and told he may have
any one of them as a gift, which
one will he choose?
Answers to this question were
revealed recently when 292 win-
ners of the Oreon E. Scott Fresh-
man Prize had the opportunity to
choose any one of 24 books as their
reward,
Sandburg's "Lincoln"
Most popular among the fresh-
men, by a small margin, was Carl
Sandburg's "Abraham Lincoln, the
Prairie Years and the War Years."
It was most popular among liter-
ary college students (by a one-vote
margin) and second favorite (also
by one vote) among engineering
students who indicated a prefer-
ence..
Popularity of this book was
correctly forseen by the Committee:
on- University Scholarships, who
decided when they made up the
list of books that the Sandburg
volume would be given - to those
students who failed to indicate a
choice.
In addition to the 46 who chose
the Lincoln work, 35 award win-
ners will also receive that book for
failing to make a choice.
All the award winners will be
presented with their preference of
the books at 2 p.m. May 11 at a
special Honors Convocation in the
Union Ballroom.
Poetry Second
Second most popular of the books.
was Louis Untermeyer',s edition of
modern American and British
poetry. Popularity of this book
was very low in engineering school,
but was high overall.
Clearly the most popular book
among freshman engineers was the
volume that placed third in the
standings, Tolstoi's "War and

Peace" in a special translation by
Louis and Aylmer Maude.
Four other works were very pop-
ular, but ran far behind the three
favorite volumes.
In order of popularity, they were
Bernard Berenson's "Italian Paint-
ers of the Renaissance," T. S.
Eloit's "The Complete Poems and
Plays, 1909-1950," both of which
were not selected by engineering
students, Bartlett's "Familiar Quo-
tations" and "The Complete Greek
Drama" by W. J. Oates and Eugene
O'Neill, Jr.
No 'Moby Dick'
Only one book of the 24 offered
failed to receive a single vote. That
was Melville's "Moby Dick," which
is available at bookstores in many
editions.
- Untermeyer's poetry work was
most popular among nursing and
music school students, while Sieg-
fried Giedion's "Space, Time and
Architecture: the Growth of a New
Tradition" received half of the
votes among architecture and
drawing school students.
As in engineering school, "War
and Peace" was most popular
among the four award-winning
pharmacy students.
Among other qualifications, the
student must be in the top ten
per cent of his class to win the
Oreon E. Scott Freshman Prize,
awarded for the first time this
year.
Herzberg Talk
Joseph G. Herzberg, Sunday
Editor of the New York Herald
Tribune, will discuss "The Liter-
ary Market" at 3 p.m. Tuesday in
Rackham Amphitheatre under the
auspices of the department of
journalism.

CHORAL UNION AND SOLOISTS
The oratorio, DAVIDDE PENITENTE, was written'by
Mozart for one of the Lenten concerts of the Society
of, Musicians in Vienna during the 1785 season. It
is base8 largely on his great C minor Mass begun in
1783, and utilized the Kyrie and Gloria section with
two interpolated arias. The work is particularly ap-
propriate this year--the bicentennial of Mozort's
birth year.

CHORAL UNION AND SOLOISTS
GURRE-LIEDER, a cantata on poems by Jen Peter
Jacobsen, was Schoenberg's first significant work.
It was begun in 1900 and completely orchestrated
ten years later. Written before the composer's depar-
ture from defined tonal centers, it is in a style di-
rectly descendent from Wagner and Mahler. It em-
ploys five solo voices, narrator, three male "choruses,
and q mixed ,chorus, as well as a complex instru-
mentation.
