PROFESSOR BUCK TALKS ON "THE NEW REALISM" TUESDAY Tells Influence of Novels of Gals worthy Bennett on Present-day Life to Small Audience. "The New Healism" as shown in the novels of Galsworthy and Bennett was the subject of Professor Buck's talk before a very small convocation audi ence yesterday morning. In order to provide seats for themselves the audi ence had to "heave to" and get their own chairs. Professor Buck showed in the course of his talk that the new real ism was in direct contrast to the older French school which was considered revolting and morally unclean. Today the facts of life are copied in the newspapers and so It is here that things persist and move. The novels of these men appeal to every-day life and emotions and are consequently real. Novels that do not do this, said Professor Buck, are flippiant, irrational and inhuman. Harvard's Big Loan Fund. Nearly $92,000 is given or loaned annually by Harvard university for student aid.
