NU Professor's Short Story
By Sue Hovik
"The Quick and the Dead"
by Ervin Krause, University
English instructor, has been
selected to appear in the "0.
Henrr Prize Story Collection
of Z961."
TW short story first ap
pear4 in the I960 Spring is
sue t the "Prairie Schoon
er" and has the distinction of
being the first story pub
lished in the "Prairie Schoon
er" to be selected for the
"0. Henry Prize Story Col
lection." Editors of the awards read
magazines which publish
short fiction and choose the
best 12 stories in the calen
dar year. Many of the stor
ies in this collection came
from magazines such as "Es
quire" and "Atlantic Month
ly." Arthur Milleter, Peter
Taj lor and John Updike are
other authors whose works
irttl appear ix this collective.
"The Quick and the Dea3"
has a Midwestern setting with
rural color in it. Although the
editors stressed technique,
Krause explained his story j

Although Krause taught at
Wyoming University last
year, he has been associated
with the University since
1956. In 1957 he received his

New York College Paper
Schenectady, New York
(UPS) The Concordiensis
Union College weekly news
paper, was reinstated recent
ly, just two days after the
Student Council had suspend
ed it from publiation.
The two-week suspension
was voted by the Student
Council over a difference of
opinion regarding editorial
policy. Council President Gary
Gross accused the Concordi
ensis of not living up to its
responsibilities as a campus
Concordiensis editor Robert
Galvin. expressed shock that
"the Student Conned, which
has done nothing all year,
should as its only significant
action, baa the free student
press at Union.
The baa was lifted at an
emergency Student Council
meeting called after an open
Investigation into the paper's
policies by a student-faculty
committee collapsed amid
strong objections from the
students in attendance.
Resounding Victory
Galvin called the decision
to lift the suspension "a re
sounding victory for Union
College. The issue at hand
was suspension of the free
press. The press has been re
stored." The suspension was enact
ed after a semester-long in
vestigation of the paper by
the Student Council's consti
tution and activities sur
vey committee. The Council
is publisher of the paper
since the paper is supported
by a student tax which the
council enacts.
Gross denied that the two-
week suspension was meant
to be suspension of the free
press. "We were acting both
as the publishers of the pa
per and as the elected repre
sentatives of its readers. We
felt that the bulk of the stu-
masters degree. He is now a
graduate student working on
his PhD. In 1959 he had two
other stories in the "Prairie
Schooner" and plans another
one this summer.
New Phenomenon.
Krause explained a new
phenomonen taking place in
the field of writing since
about half of the writers in
the 0. Henry collection are
affiliated with colleges. He
believes the reason for this
is that the would-be writer
Reaching in college is at a po
sition which doesnT require
a prohibitive amount of la
bor. Also a college communi
ty is the only place left in
the United States that isnt
in some way anti-intellectual,"
according to Krause.
However, he added there
are disadvantages to college
community life, and one of
them is that the writer lives
a sort of cloistered existence.
He detaches himself from
the "great mass of man
kind." The things he writes
about are things remembered
rather than things involved.
Krause finds some irritat-
dent bodv disaooroved suffi

have bought it."
The council felt the suspen
sion was "the sole means left
to us of showing the disap
proval of the readers and
publishers to the coverage of
campus affairs during the
past semesters." said Gross.
Committee Established
The student-faculty investi
gating committee was estab
lished concurrent with the
suspension order. The com
mittee met for the first time
in an open he a r i n e to Ques
tion Galvin on the policies
of the paper. Gross said
the purpose of the commit
tee was to find means of im
proving the paper.
ine suspension was lifted
because the Council felt thev
could not accomplish this end
through the suspension and
tne investigating committee,
reported Gross. He said the
incident will probably bring
about a revision of the Pub
lications Board.
Gross estimated that two-
thirds of the study body p-
poseo ine suspension. The
day following the suspension
order, he said, the Student
Council received a petition
asking them to call a stu
dent body meeting to
discuss the issue, along with
money spent on the scholar
ly study of Melville, for ex
ample, then Melville made
throughout his life. The same
thing may be going on today,
The genuine writer receives
little aid aside from his od.
This graduate student states
that it is disconcerting to see
second rate scholars going to
Europe and not do much of
anything, while would-be
writers get little to ao.
This author describes "ac
ademic writers" as a kind of
"off-breed." They are neither
here nor there, they have to
do everything alone without
much support from anyone.
The scholar gets considerable
support from universities and
foundations whether he has
talent or not.
Krause believes that the
chief obstacle to writing is
"the state of mind the writer
is in." It has to be directed
toward writing, he said.
