Harmony Masters Quartet Teachers' Poet Reviewed by Rachel Loughridge Elementary Grades Make Book Displays Grades of the elementary school &ve setting up book displays for the benefit of teachers now in summer school who may* wish to prepare lists for.their own use. Dates for the several grade exhibits are as follows: Kindergarten and first grade, July 16; second and third grades, July 18; fourth, and fifth grades, JUly 23; sixth grade, July 25; and seventh grade, August 1'. The displays will be set up in the elementary building and may be seen'from 2 to 4 p.m. Approximately 75 persons heard Miss Rachel Loughridge, acting head of the. foreign language department, discuss the life and work of Gabriela Mistral, Chilean author and poet, in, last Wednesday^ Book hour. Miss Loughridge pointed out that Gabriela Mistral, or Lucila Godoj Aleayaga in private life, is the dean of Latin American letters and is the first writer from Latin America to receive the Nobel prize. "It is said that Mistral, is first a woman, secondly a teacher and last- a poet, as she considers the latter role the least important," said Miss Loughridge. Miss Loughridge stated that Mistral's poetry is more sad than joyous and expresses the universal griefs of women, children, and the downtrodden. She has often been called the poet of children and of school teachers. Miss Loughridge read several of the poet's poems, among them. "The Rain" which is considered one of her best nature poems , "Poems of the Son," poems from the "Dances of Children" and "A Teacher's Prayer" which Mi|ss Loughridge translated from the Spanish. Mistral's first collection of ooetry entitled, "Desolacion" (Deso':at:.on) was published in 1922 in America, "Ternura" (Tenderness) 1924 in Spain and "Tala" (Destruction) 1938 in Buenos Aires. Books which contain translations of some of her works are: Some Spanish American Poete by Blackstone. The Anthology of Latin American Poetry by Fitts and The Green Continent by Arciniegas. "Though Gabriela Mistral is a woman of various interests" said Miss Loughridge," her main concern is that of the teacher, to help children and improve education. This interest was responsible for her mission to Mexico to participate in the undertaking of. more progressive methods of .education. Here, she helped write the textbook, Writings for Women. Miss Loughridge stated that Gabriela, Mistral is now Consular representative from Chile in, Los Angeles, where she deals with cultural relationships between the two countries. Old Tunes Best at College Sing The college sing held in Keeler union lounge last Wednesday evening was attended by approximately 75 enthusiastic singers. The sing was directed by Mr. Ambrose D. Holford, a member of the visiting faculty in music, and Miss Esther Hubbard, also a visiting member of the faculty of the same department was accompanist. Old favorites such as "Oh, My Darling Clementine," "Drink To Me Only With Thine Eyes," "In the Gloaming," and "Ain't Gwine Study War No More".were popular with the group. The sing was featured by im- promtu quartets, request numbers, harmonizing on some of the older tunes, and a solo by Miss Hubbard. Another sing will be held tonight at 7:00 p.m. in Keeler court. All students are invited to attend. Country Dancers Show Enthusiasm The dance program scheduled for Keeler court last Wednesday eve- ring, had to be held in the gymnasium owing to damp grounds. However, this failed to dampen the spirits of approximately 100 "old- fashioned" dance enthusiasts. Miss Jean Smith, instructor in the physical education department, directed and nailed for the dances. Prof. Grace Ryan of the health and physical education department also acted as a caller for some of the numbers. Mrs. Suzanne Pety, visiting assistant of the department, served as the accompanist for the dances. Professor Ryan feels "old-fashioned" dances will again be popular with the students; after a slight decline in interest, during the past two or three years. This seemed to be clearly indicated last Wednesday evening by the large group in attendance, who seemed to be thoroughly enjoying themselves. Refreshments were served during a brief intermission. Co-chairmen in charge of last week's program were Jean Bonnett, Levering sophomore, and Ed Scholl, Mt. Pleasant senior. Another Dancing on the Green program will be held tonight at 8:00 -p.m. with Mae McBride Elk- tori graduate student, and Bob Wardrop, Mt. Pleasant senior, acting as co-chairmen.

Dr. Cook met yesterday, with the faculty and other interested people from tlie community and explained the program. Maybe Yau Could Borrow a Howler for Bird Season Mysterious sounds coming from the gym last week have finally been explained. Passers-by were startled when loud barking and weird howling emitted from windows of the body-building emporium. No, the physical education department has not gone into the dog business! Authors of the canine capers were members of Miss Jean Smith's 306"class in recreation. It seems that the students have been playing games as part of the schedule. The entertainment in question involved little green papers hidden about. When a player found one, of these, he immediately set up a terrific hound dog din and barked all over the place. Among the sniffer-outers were ctertain stalwart athletes tof the Varsity variety. Now the only thing Ed Scholl and Bobb Wardrop, Mount Pleasant seniors, and Bill Ward, Flint senior, order at Keeler is dog biscuits! last week by an octet of experts, and authorities gathered at Cenr tral Michigan college of education for a two-day Speech conference as they attempted to analyse the problems and the treatments of -stuttering, dysphasia, and articula- tory disturbances of both children and adults. More than one-half the total summer enrollment of teachers and graduate and undergraduate students attended some phase of the imporant conference. Symposium Poses Problems "Readiness for speech and proper social adaptations are the two points of major importance in the development of speech and language." This was brought out by a number of educators at the opening number of the Speech Conference hi, the form of a symposium on the subject "Problems in Speech and Language Development." Those who took part in this dis- discussion were Dr. Ollie Backus, assistant professor of speech, University of Michigan; Frances Martin, professor of education, Central Michigan( college; Marcella Barnes, Grand Rapids Public schools; Ann Louise Welch, Kindergarten supervisor, Central Michigan college; Dr. Hubert L. Curry, professor of speech, Central Michigan college and John Clancy, admission director of speech clinic, University of Michigan.
