The thunder of guns boomed over Balboa as the fleet completed problem 17 of its annual maneuvers, but it Was an unseaworthv crew, for the most part, that manned the guns. More than 80 per cent of the present fleet personnel, including the chief of staff of the fleet, has never crossed the equator. Admiral Reeves explained, in ordering the navy to | since embark May 17 for an eight-day trip into equatorial waters. “I'm going to make this navy sea-going,” the admiral said. He unfolded his plans for the South American trip, designed to accustom the navy to burning equatorial heat. The maneuver will start from Balboa a week from today, returning to Panama on May 24. The fleet then will steam up the Pacific coast, starting May 27. Two squadrons will be detached before this northern journey. They will pass through the Panama canal and embark with cruisers and seven destroyers on a goodwill trip to South America. ois a new law.” Long Influence To Be Present At Legislature NEW ORLEANS, May 10 — ‘U.P) —Louisiana’s legislature will convene tomorrow for the first time Huey Long’s assassination. $2,364 000.000 for relief and defi- ciency needs, and then turn to thf* Frazier-Lemke farm refinancing bilL The deficiency bill, carrying SI -425,000 000 for work relief to Le spent by Harry L.

E. Housman’.” Thus, in a lecture given in Bowne hall Friday afternoon, did Dr. Frank C. Baxter of the English department prophesy lasting fame for the English lyric poet who died recently at the age of 77. While a student at Cambridge, Dr. Baxter became acquainted with Housman. who lectured many years at that English university. Although Housman was known throughout the school as a great wit, Dr. Baxter stated that no one ever really knew him. except perhaps his two closest friends, one of whom was the novelist Thomas Hardy. Very little is known about Housman. He is described as being austere, retiring, a perfect gentleman, a person who cared nothing for fame. Although critics believe that lie poetry. “The Shropshire Lad.” published in faculty members will follow, 1895, which made him famous, and , “ ; Z . “Last Poems,” published in 1921. of Harvard Business School w’hich more copies have been sold than of any other book of poetry in the twentieth century. Dr. Baxter stated that all that is known about Housman may be found in Doheny library’ in a master’s thesis written by an S. C. student who gathered the few known facts and incidents of the poet’s life. Ai.umni Offer Graduate Student Living, Tuition A scholarship to the Harv ard Business school sponsored by local Harvard alumni and to be granted to a graduate student was recently announced by the School cf Commerce. Terms of the scholarship provide Besides commentmg on the poet’s j for tuition and residence in the Har- life, Dr. Baxter also read several of his lyrics, explaining the main theme which is “beauty bom to die.” He also said that, although Housman is classed as a pessimistic poet, his works contain more of the beauty and joy of life than .those of his contemporary and friend, Thomas Hardy, with whom he is often compared. vard Business school.
