tray "White Voodoo" in
" Vivid Drama.
The University Press here has been
signally honored by having five of
, its books selected among the collec
tion of 900 volumes "illustrative of
American life and culture" to be dis-
played in the American Building in
the Ibero-American exposition to be
held in Seville next spring and sum
mer. ' ' V- ' -' ' .
Three of the books are by Univer
sity professors. They are "America
and French- Culture" (1927) by How
ard Mumford Jones, "The Negro and
His Songs" (1925) by Howard W.
Odum and Guy B. Johnson, arid "Gon
gorism and the Golden Age" U928)
by Elisha K. Kane.
The other two books .are "Folk Be
liefs of the Southern Negro" (1926)
by Newbell Niles s Puckett, Western
Beserve University professor, and
"Law and Morals" (1924) by Roscoe
Pound, Dean of the Harvard Law
The American Library Association
made the selections and invited the
different publishers to contribute vol
umes listed to be shipped to Spain
for the Exposition.
- AH of the five books had been pre
viously selected in various years on
the list of 40 Notable American
Books made up annually by the As
sociation for the Committee on Intel
lectual Cooperation of the League of
Nations. - - . .
After the Exposition closes it is
proposed that the books be used as
. the nucleus for a permanent American
library in Seville, or perhaps in some
other city in Spain. In any event
they will be adequately exhibited and
properly cared for afterwards.
Books are to be catalogued in New
York before being sent to Seville, and
cards will be furnished by the Library
This plants the result of negotia
' tions by John T. Vance, of the Li
brary of Congress, chairman of the
American Library Association Com
mittee on Library Cooperation with
the Hispanic Peoples, and by Dr. E.
C. Richardson, chairman of the Amer
ican Library Association Committee

A Capella Choir
To Give Concert
The A Capella choir,, acompanied
by a small orchestra, will give its
first appearance of the year on Sun
day afternoon at 4 o clock m Memorial
Hall, featuring a, program consisting
exclusively of Bach's music. Pro-
lessor Paul John Weaver, head of the
University, music department, will
direct the organization. Professor
McCorkle has charge of all the ar
rangements for the performance. The
A Cappella choir, unusual in the type
of music that if sings, has given only
one concert for the public since its
reorganization here last year. It has
been accorded very favorable criticism
by musical critics who have heard it
sing. The accompanying orchestra
consists of a few of the regular mem
bers of the University Orchestra. The
public is cordially invited to attend
the Sunday afternoon concert.
At what age should a boy begin
Dartmouth College has a 26-year
old freshman this year and three
freshmen under -16. Sixteen-year-
old boys do not get into Dartmouth
even with the finest records and quali
fications unless they can prove to the
director of admissions "that they
would not be greatly benefitted by
waiting a year." . " :
Dean E. Gordon Bill, in charge of
Dartmouth College admissions, dis
cusses the problem of the boy under
18 in the Dartmouth Alumni maga
zine. He is definitely against admit
ting boys 'much under 18. He tells
of making a practice of urging pa
rents of "top-notch" boys of 16 and
17 to give these boys "another year
of preparation and maturing."
This is directly contrary to the
philosophy about college age which
President A. Lawrence Lowell, of
Harvard University, has pronounced
m recent discussions of the age ques
tion with school teachers and in Har
vard College reports.
T 1 i T 11 - . J
r-resiaent lowen nas scolded the
schools for taking so many years to
prepare pupils for college. He in
sists that they can and should be
ready at 16. "'
Dean Bill of Dartmouth says:
It may be fairly argued that
whereas at a large city university
extreme youth and immaturity may
not be a great handicap in getting
the most the institution has to offer.
the writer believes that in a college
of the type of Dartmouth with its
compact and intimate community
life all matriculants should have
reached a certain maturity which may
come at 15 but usually not before
18. In any case the office of admis
sions at the present time is asking
your applicants to prove to it that
they would not be greatly benefited
by waiting a year." '
In spite of Dartmouth's preference
for sons of her-own alumni and pro
fessors, more than two-thirds of this
year's freshmen are boys whose
fathers did not go to any college
Only 38 out of the class of 586 are
from homes where both 'parents are
college graduates. The 183 whose
fathers are college men are, however.
the largest number of some -of col
lege graduates in any Dartmouth
The great majority of the entering
class of them expect to go rather into
business than anything else. Half of
them, however, have no notion what
they are going to do after college.
The New England representation
at Dartmouth has shrunk from 40.4
per cent, of the class that entered a
year ago to 33.8 per cent, of this
Both Massachusetts and New
Hampshire have a smaller representa
tion than usual, while New York's
numbers have increased. New York
goes to the head of the list, passing
Massachusetts, as the state with the
largest representation. There are
134 New -York freshmen to 127 from
the Bay. State.
The class averages a shade young
er than previous classes. It has been
held down to a smaller class than last
year's by 40. This follows a definite
policy to restrict the college to as
near 2,000 as practicable. In cutting
the applications Dean Bill explains
a good many applicants were turned
down who came under what Dart
mouth lists as "favored groups.
These favored groups include sons of
alumni, natives of New Hampshire,
and boys from the South and Far
West. -Philadelphia Enquirer.

I have never felt that the editors of
The Carolina Magazine have clearly
determined what they expected a
book review to do. For example, Mr.
VV. vv, Anderson's review of Wood's
Heavenly Discourse" seems to have
to do with everything except the
book under discussion, whereas Mr
Mebane's review of "The Golden
Round" tells briefly and succinctly
what is m the book" and what Mr.
Mebane thinks of it. It seems to me
the latter kind is the preferable type
The editors are to be congratulated
upon the neat cover and upon the
general typographical accuracy and
attractiveness of the magazine. It
seems to me also that they have in
eluded material of much better qual
ity than we have any right to expect
of them. There is nothing in this is
