DIVERSITY PRESS BOOKS SELECTED FOR EXPOSITION T HE T A R HE E L Five Books Named, Three by University Professors, for Dis play at Ibero-American Expo sition in Seville. OLLEGE DISLIKES YOUTH UNDER 18 Dean of Dartmouth University Discourages Attendance Earlier. Thursday, January 11 1929 1AM WONDERFUL ROLE Studies Long in Order to Por 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 School. 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 of Congress. 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 on Bibliography and member of the Committee on International Rela tions.

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 college ! 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 class. 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 year's class. 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. Lon Chaney donned his first false moustache in eleven years; studied several days in a hospital to emulate the actions of a paralyzed man, and mastered the intricate art of 4 sleight of Hand to be able to perform the feats required by his latest screen role. This odd form of preparation was necessary in filming "West of Zanzi bar," ' Metro-GoIdwyrirMayer's vivid drama of the African jungles, in which Chaney comes Monday to the Carolina Theatre. - A notable cast surrounds Chaney m the new production. Lionel Barrv- more plays "Crane," the enemy whom he trails through the jungles, and Mary Nolan is seen as the heroine. supposed by Chaney to be his enemy's daughter until, in the dramatic cli max, he finds that she is his own child. Warner Baxter plays the ro mantic lead as the renegade physi cian who finds regeneration in his love for the girl. - Kalla Pasha, Jane Daly, Roscoe Ward and many oth ers of note are in the cast.

C 3 (Continued from page one) 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 sue which is not intelligently writ ten; one may cparrer with the re sults, but . one can not quarrel with the level of artistic seriousness (at least m intention) with which the various stories and poems are writ ten.
