Place m Poefrij,
Sajjs Williamson
“The proper wit of poetry finds
its basis in human nature whenever
a man, swayed by some deep emo
tion, tries to recover his balance
by making a jest,” George Wil
liamson, assistant professor of
English, stated in defining the
proper place of wit in poetry before
a small audience in Friendly hall
Wednesday evening. /
Numerous quotations from the
modern poets and from poetic
writings of famous men from other
centuries were used by Mr. Wil
liamson to illustrate his point that
wit does have a place in poetry.
“The dream-world of the nine
teenth century poets, when pro
longed into the twentieth century,
was not a world in which a man as
sensitive and intelligent as Yeats
coud end his days,” Mr. William
son said in showing the modern
trend away from romance.
Mr. Williamson was the second
lecturer of the University series
The next address will be given
April 10 by Prof. H. G. Townsend.

Erenmcj Wraps
Will Be Quilted,
Saijs Fashion
Shades of night, and guess
what ? The latest fashion decree
says that the evening wrap is to
be quilted. When you see them
there will be no doubt that they
are quite the most wearable and
appropriate wrap for the senior
ball. The belle's of the South
would be awed by these teasing
little shoulder drapes, for that is
what they are. Of course, if you ex

coat that is also of the quilted va

claim to beauty than the dainty
plaid gingham gown shown at
Barnhart's, the only gown for the
taking is the only word that de
scribes this Jean Carol model. The
bodice fits tightly to the figure,
while the skirt flares gracefully
to the floor from the knees. Grace
