Untermeyer Gives
Definition Of Poet
"A professional poet is a
common, average man, a lit
tle more highly sensitive, in
tensified, using consciously
in language what the aver
age man uses unconsciously,
said Louis Untermeyer, poet,
critic, editor and anthologist,
in a public lecture yesterday.
Answering the question
"What Makes Modern Poet
ry Modern," Untermeyer
said that everybody uses po
etic devices such as meta
phors, similes, alliterations
and cliches everyday in ev
ery business.
These devices actually
show a great deal of accura
cy, observation, imagination
and Jhumor that poets use in
their art, he said.
Modern poetry is what is
produced when you"re living,
said Untermeyer. Obscurity
or difficulties of modern po
etry do not make the dis
tinction between that and
classical because classical
poetry has a certain amount
of these two elements also,
he said.
All serious poetry is diffi
cult because it deals with
what is imaginative or un
known and this presents a
difficulty, he timtinued.
"We live in a complex
world and modern poets do
what all poets try to do
hold a mirror up to nature,
he said.
There are two thirds nota
follows :
"WHEREAS : It is one of
the principles of this nation
that all men are created
equal; and "
"WHEREAS: It is a major
function of an educational in
stitution to uphold these vir
tures of equality and break
down the barriers of misun
derstanding and prejudice;
'WHEREAS: It has been
widely circulated that Univer
sity students both on and off
campus have been discrim
inated against because of
their race;
"THEREFORE; Be it re
solved that a standing com
mittee of three be established
to investigate the extent of
racial discrimination both on
and off campus."
Bud Kimball, newly-elected
member of the Central Coun
cil, said that the committee
would find how serious and
where racial discrimination
was located on campus and
make recommendations as to
ble about modern poetry,
said Untermeyer. The line
between serious poetry and
light verse has thinned con
siderably and the line be
tween prose and verse has
also thinned, he said.
"Poets of today reflect Ms
world its horror, boredom
and glory," said the poet. It
is the glorification or use of
the commonplace that makes
modern poetry more reada
ble and exciting.
There is no way of meas
uring modern poetry except
through personal taste, he
said. My taste is not intel
lectualism nor extreme popu
larism; 1 like novelty, clarity
and things that startle or an
noy me, Untermeyer ex
plained. "A work of art requires
some shape and 6ome form,"
said the anthologist. Beatnik
poetry has no form; it is an
outflowing of ideas which are
fine material for art, but it
isn't art, he explained.
"The Runaway," by the
late Robert Frost was read
by Untermeyer partly as a
tribute and partly because he
was implicated in it
"Robert Frost, my oldest,
dearest inend, is one of the
three greatest poets in the
United States," said Unter
meyer. America has never
had a poet so profound and
playful and yet one that ha
enjoyed such great populari
ty, he said.

Library Staff

The Love library staff is
ready to aid any house or
group who approaches them
for assistance in setting up a
beginning library, according
to Susie Pierce, chairman of
Student Council library com
mittee in a report to Student
Council Wednesday.
The committee recommend
ed that the individual houses
select library committees to
approach the University Li

ance on the kind of library
they want to set up.
"It must be understood that
this project is entirely inde
pendent from any University
regulation and that no group
will try to dictate as to what
should be put in these li
braries," said Miss Pierce.
Houses are urged to begin
a library even if it is a very
small one as it can be added
to each year, said Miss
Pierce in her report. The con
tent .of these libraries may
be in the nature of what the
house is basicaDy inter

"The Student Council li

"We will also set up a time
