Printing Houses Have Complicated
Matters by Flooding Market
With Countess Books
The chief difficulty in attempting
to read the contemporary French
novel intelligently is, in the opin-
ion of Professor Albert Schinz, of
the University of Pennsylvania, that
of choosing just what to read.
In his lecture, "The Contempor-
ary Novel in France," at 5 o'clock
yesterday afternoon in Natural
Science auditorium, Professor
Schinz stressed this point and re-
marked that printing houses were
publishing so many novels that
choosing only what was worth
while in this field was becoming a
real problem.1
As an aid for selection Pofessor
Schinz suggested his own method
for meeting this difficulty. He
reads mostly those books which
have been awarded prizes by the
various French academies and the
literary societies. Inasmuch as
there are about 1120 of these, the
problem is very greatly simplified
and he has found that over 60 per
cent of those novels which have
been awarded prizes are read and
enjoy great popularity even as late
as 10 years after the date of the
original publication.
Awards for Merit
In particular there are the
French Academy, The Concourt
Academy, and the Prix Femina
which gives awards for literary
merit. The Goncourt and the Fe-
mina prizes, said Schin, work in
opposition to each other. They
both award prizes on the same day,
and the Goncourt prize is restrict-
ed to men only, where as the Prix
Femina will honor both men and
,women. The French Academy so
far has awarded prizes to only two
In his lecture Professor Schinz
divided the Contemporary novel in-
to two groups, the continuation of
the pre-war tendencies and the
newer tendencies.

DENVER, Colorado, July 2.-
George Simpson, Ohio State sprint-
er and holder of the unofficial
world's record of 9.4 seconds for the
100 yard dash, sprained a tendon'
in his right leg while practicing at
the Denver University stadium this
His coach, Dr. Frank Castleman,
said the sprinter would probably be
withdrawn from the Natinal Track
and Field championships that are
to be run off her Thursday.
Simpson's injury is similar {to,
the one he recently received at the
Big Ten meet in Chicago. Today's
workout was the first that he has
had since this meet. The Ohio

State sprinter came here to defend
his title of the fastest human in
the world. The inability of Simp-
son to run will leave the honor
open to Bracey of Texas, and Tolan
of Michigan. The failure of Simp-
son to compete will detract muchI
in the way of sensation.

be among the principal speakers
at the national convention of the
National Federation of Business

11, at Mackinac Island.

the problem of vocational guidance

Myers will take the same subject as

tention recently given by educators

lem, various professional and busi-
ness associations have begun a
study of the subject, as evidenced
by the study being done by the
Federation of guidance as prac
ticedi in typical communities.

A Review By William J Gorman
Before a large crowd in Hill Au-
ditorium last night, Mabel Ross
Rhead, pianist, and Kathryn Gute-
kunst, contralto, gave one of the
most entertaining concerts of the
whole, faculty series this year. .
Mrs. Rhead opened the concert
with the "Etudes Symphoniques" of
Schumann. This is one cf the fin-
est sets of variations in all piano
literature; Schumann, following
the later Beethoven style, aban-
doned the ornamental-melody type
of treatment of the variation form
and conceived it solely as a means
of bringing out all the musical
phases of a harmonic and melodic
structure. It was then a perfect
vehicle for soulful poetizing; and!
Schumann gave it rich, vital music.
Mrs. Rhead's rendering was bril-
liant and satisfying; it hadn't the
