Economics Causes Uproar at Illinois,
Variations in Thematic
Poetry Pace Says Ciardi
By PAULA STRAWHECKER
The question of academic free-
m and the shifted emphasis
an economics course have split
e campus of the University of
Inois and brought charges of
The issue has brought Dean Ho-
rd R. Bowen of the college of
mnmerce under fire from econo-
cs Prof. Donald L. Kemmerer.
KEMMERER HAS BEEN the
okesman for those in the com-
arce college charging that a
lation of academic freedom
ought about the resignation of
lph R. Blodgett, professor of
A shift of emphasis from "free
iterprise" to "government con-
'ols and deficit spending" in
asic economics courses pre-
eded Blodgett's resignation,
Although Blodgett's supporters
arged that "staff members have
n chosen because of their ad-
rence to particular 'economic
theories," Dean, Bowen called this

THE BOARD of trustees accept-
ed a fact-finding group's report
that there had been no violation
of academic freedom, but that
there was "a failure in human
relations and a failure in admin-
Meanwhile Blodgett declared
that the question of academic
freedom was never his issue and
claimed that Dean Bowen had
selected it "because he was sure
he could beat it."
Kemmerer called for a meeting
of the executive committee of the
commerce college to poll its fac-
ulty members to determine if they
believed the "best interests of the
college were being served and its
present problems resolved" under
the present dean.
ALTHOUGH the committee de-
cided unanimously to poll staff
members on their confidence in
Dean Bowen, they deferred voting
Kemmerer charged that Bowen,
"must fear the octcome of the
poll, for he moved heaven and
earth to postpone it."
ON THE BRIGHTER side, Ma-
bel Fairchild, senior clerk in the
University of Minnesota, had an
interesting telephone conversation
at the university's information
A woman explained that her
Georgie was registering as a
freshman at the university in
the fall. Did he have to attend
freshman orientation? Was it
"Yes, it's compulsory," Mabel
"Well, is orientation anything
like this Greek Hell week?"
* * *
GEORGIE'S MOTHER had one
more question: "Why do they have
to wear moccasins to orientation?"
Mabel was temporarily silenced;
then she remembered, "The Moc-
casin is an orientation pamphlet.
It has nothing to do with shoes."

Thematic poetry is the wedding
of symbolism and free verse, as-
serted Prof. John Ciardi of the
Harvard University English De-
partment in his discussion on the-
matic poetry yesterday. -
"Symbolism is one aspect of the
matic poetry," he said, you could
call symbolism a something that
stands for something else'
THIS SYMBOLISM -ean be seen
in the poem, "The Second Com-
ing," by William Yeats in which
the poet tries to make some form
against the chaos. Mr. Yats be-
lieves that every 2,000 years the
world enters a new phase and that
Christianity was symbolic ir:d
was timed according to this phil-
osophy, Prof. Ciardi said.
"There are those who feel that
the subtle variations of structure
of form in poetry can exist only
about a norm, that a poem must
work within a pattern of form

no matter how arbitrary, but there
is no reason why a norm can't be
the quality of a speaking voice in-
stead of an always regular pat-
tern," Prof. Ciardi declared.
It is apparent that English
poets use a different kind of
speech than American poets.
The result is two dividing forms
of poetry, he said.
A poem recreates the poet's
speaking voice and line breaks
have a great deal to do with the
rate and inflection of speech, Prof.
* * *
"ROBERT FROST'S poetry de-
mands his twang or else.the effect
is lost and a skillful poet will place
a word at the beginning of line
for speech emphasis;" he said.
"Irregular line and heavy
rhyme can speed up the rate of
poetry. In thematic poetry, there
are a number of changes in
pace and the play of one term
element against the other," Prof.
Thematic poetry if properly em-
ployed can produce various re-
sults, he said.
"In the hand of a skilled mas-
ter, thematic poetry can achieve
a wide variety of metrical and
cadence effects," Prof. Ciardi con-
