into the emotions.
In a manner Frost is an abioge-
netic product. His writing does not
resemble the sweet sounding piffle ofI
the Harvard school, nor yet, as I
have intimated, is he a "result of Whit-
man's influence. And surely he is, no
disciple of Poe. Whitman was cosmic
and rough, gloriously so. Poe was
mystic5, even lZ-pochondriacal. Frost!
resembles neither closely, though he
is more like Whitman than Poe if a

First Recognized in England I
And it must be remembered "that
Frost, a new germ plasm in .America's
literary awakening, was not recogniz.
ed in America, but in England. His}
first volume of verse, "A Boy's,sWil~l",
was published in London in 1913. His
second v'olume, "North of Boston",
was also printed there, in 1914. Both
books" have been since published in
this country by Henry Holt and com-
pany. Finally his third volume,
"Mountain Interval", went to press1

Bring ("n the Sodium Bicarbon~ateI
Now I have a really good, con-
structive suggestion to offer. One
would think that r' might be angry
but I'm not. I believe that in the
end, all is for the best. Briefly I sug-
gest that the tap room be turned over
to the Ann Arbor department of .pub-
lie wvorks,. and that a place for the
students to~ eat be started. I am rath-
er modest or I should work it out in
detail; al labout the fly-traps and soap
factor~ies and everything.
But a number of heads are better
than one. Let some of the other
readers write in about .their experi-
ences at the Union. In addition to
sodium bicarbonate, I need sympathy.

In his first book one finds a Swin-
burnian touch, a sheer dlelight in
rhythm and rhyme. It is almost pure-
ly~ pastoral though in one' poem. he
descends to the banality of the oldI
New England school. I refer to "The
Trial by Existence", a sort of maud-
lin chant which might well have beenI
executed by Edgar Guest, an imitatorl
of imitators. Again Frost hits the
low level of Bryant or falls into the
excellent nonsense of Longfellow. "A
Boy's Will" pleases me in spots, and
'chiefly for its music and fantasy.
