Winkle Harris Is E
Students and faculty of Salem
College were given an opportunity
Tuesday night to see a collection
of rare books and manuscripts on
display in the library. The books
were displayed before and after a
meeting of the Friends of the
Outstanding in the collection was
a single leaf of the Gutenburg
Catholicum set up in 1460. There
was a fourth edition of Shake-
spear’s plays complete with the
original vellum bindings and clasps
which is the only one in existence
in this condition. First editions
included were Boswell’s Life of
Samuel Johnson, Trollope’s Bar-
chester Tower, and the original
In the collection of manuscripts
there was one of Thomas deQuin-
cey and one of Eugene Field.
These two were an Interesting com
parison, the former being almost im
possible to read and the latter being
a picture of neatness and legibility.
At the meeting, Mrs. Charles
Hopkins, iprincipal speaker and lib
rarian of the general library at
the University of North Carolina,
predicted that American fiction of
the future will be more and more
characterized by a quest for moral
and .spiritual value. She gave brief
reviews of recent American novels
to support her prediction.
Among the works she reviewed
were Frederick Buechner’s “A Long
Day’s Dying”, Max Steel’s “Debby”,
Paul Bowles’ ‘‘The Sheltering Sky”,
and Cleveland Armory’s ‘‘Home
Town”. She compared these to the
post-war fiction of the twenties—
Sinclair, Lewis, and Heming\vay.
She said ‘‘Most of the idols which
it was so important to debunk then
have since been demolished. The
newer writers are learning to probe
more deeply into meaning and are
developing a more significant style.”

Tlie Play-Day which was held
here last week-end, from all reports,
