feverybody can’t go to the conference
at Seabeck, but everyone could go to the
T. W. C. A. bungalow Thursday afternoon
and imagine that they were on the very
beach at Seabeck entering into the sports
and listening to the discussion through
out the day. Mrs. Win. Case, as confer
ence leader, crowded a whole day at Sea
beck into a short hour at the bungalow.
During the morning the time was spent
with class periods and morning devotions.
Democracy was discussed and the girls
from all parts of the country decided
that the University of Oregon girls were
good examples of democracy.
At lunch time a songfest was held.
The girls at the table sang all the Sea
beck songs of the year before and then
called upon the kitchen force for the
“Pumpkin Song.” After this response it
was decided to disperse with the meal for
awhile. Then followed the quiet hour.
One of the girls gave a reaslistic picture
of going to bed and getting up, although
the quiet hour Was not much of a success
from the standpoint of rest.
The girls were then warned to keep
off the Sound and to go canoeing only
in the lagoon. Although the camp now
possesses a pulmotor, it is rather dan
gerous to take too many chances and
several people have lost their lives in
just this way, said Mrs. Case. The fox
and hound race was also announced for
the afternoon.
Dean Fox, from the University of Ore
gon, was the speaker of the evening.
She welcomed the conference leader to
the west and told her how glad the con
ference members were to have her. She
then invited her to visit the Oregon cam
pus. The evening delegation meetings,
said to be the best of the day, were con
ducted by Miss Tirza Dinsdale, secretary
on the Oregon campus.
The dress question was again brought
up at this discussion as it seemed to
Imre had quite an effect on this group
of girls. Glowing accounts of the day
Were recited and the girls agreed that
anyone who missed going to the Seabeck
conference had missed one of the biggest
things of the year.
Causa of Whirling, Gyrating Stream Is

Round and round she goes, and whore

fellow that invented that got a million
dollars”; all in reference to a rotating
nozzle on one of the sprinklers used to
water the lawn on the campus in the lust
few days.
It keeps a stream of water whirling,

The best way is to wait until the stream

fortunate, you will get there before the
shower overtakes you. Then keep walk

poem throws a light on every other,
and soon there emerges the distinct
personality of the author. 11. D. is the
lover of the rocks and sea, and steep
trail, of beauty associated with striving.
Kara Pound perceives and subtly port
rays the most delicate shades of beauty
and is most scornful of all else but
beauty. Amy l.owell is the vivid strong
stimulating personality, intense in feel
ing, wide in sympathy and range. Her
work fills five volumes and includes, be
sides the shorter poems, shrewd, keen,
dramatic monologues in New Euglaud
dialect, and vast panoramic scenes from
history in polyphonic prose, among thorn
the Napoleon and Josephine series, and
the story of the opening of Japan to the
world in “Guns as Keyes, or the Great
Gate Swings.” Also Amy Lowell has
written long narratives in the most dif
ficult of regular stanza forms, delighting
to show that she is equally at home in
all verse forms.
Master’s Free Verse Forcible.
Masters; too, (not an imagist), writes
regular and free verse with equal ease.
However, his free verse—exactly con
trary to common expectation—is much
more concise and forcible than his reg
ular verse. Had it not been for free
verse Masters would probably never have
attained fame, w'ould certainly never
have achieved the brilliancy of Spoon
River Anthology. For in good free verse
the writer must substitute original and
clever idea or diction for the charm of
the musical line. Masters was spurred
to greater effort by the form he had
chosen and succeeded in giving at once
pointed brevity and epic largeness fo his
Free verse, in its larger forms, seems
to be the natural expression of the deep
ly reverent and religious feelings, of
social and patriotic sentiments; the chant
is its form and its effect is inspirational.
In its lighter, more highly wrought but
brief creations, it is impressionistic, and
is a marvelously fine and sensitive in
strument for the recording in concrete
imagery of the multifarious impressions
made by life upon the brain of the artist.
And there is a large variety of uses be
Poetry Invites Mood.
All poetry is poetry only by the con
sent of the reader. It is an invitation
to the reader to be in the poetic mood.
The response to the invitation must be
voluntary, but it is essential. To jazz
Milton or Shakespeare would be fatal to
all poetic effect. The free verse writer
invites the reader to a more frequent ex
perience of the poetic mood; he might
write his verse as prose, but in that case
the reader would bring the prose mood
to his reading. He wishes to enlarge
the world of poetry; as Wordsworth
added a new world of common people and
common things, he would add a new
world of common sensations. For in
stance, the pleasure of Amy Lowell in
the flaming color of a shopwindow full of
red slippers. “They balance upon arched
insteps like springing bridges of orimNon
lacquer; they swing up over curved heels
like whirling tanagers sucked in a wind
pocket; they flatten out, heelless, like
July ponds, flamed and burnished by
red rockets. Snap, snap, they are crack
er sparks of scarlet in the white, monot
onous block of shops.”

^Appropriate Gifts for
All Occasions
A gift of worthy jewelry carries
with it a great deal of sentiment
and it will be cherished a lifetime.
The custom o,f remembering loved ones and friends with gifts is a practice that
brings fond hearts closer together and makes for life long friendships. But the
selection of gifts for the many occasions which constantly arise is a task that is de
serving of much thought, in order to have the gift in keeping. To get the right
thing at the right time adds much to the appreciation of the gift.
