Earl T. Piatt, assistant director

of Education, according to Piatt, in
co-operation with the university

particularly New York City.
The quality of this work is

leading commercial publications
such as the Atlantic Monthly and
Scribners. Edward J. O'Brien, of
Oxford, England, who is an inter

this year's Prairie Schooner as

The Prairie Schooner started as
a non-commercial magazine and
has never lost that ranking. The
work published in the magazine is
not paid for but nevertheless the
quality is maintained. The quan

considering the non-commercial
basis. In one month in 1931 300
manuscripts were received. In a
large measure this is due to the
