SUMMER Cal if*ornïa TROJAN VOL X Los Angeles, California — Monday, June 20, 1960 NO 1 Poet Engle Opens Nearly 8000 Attend Speaker s Sones SC Summer Classes Paul Hamilton Engle, a modern writer who reminds traditional readers of Walt Whitman, will begin a series of summer lectures when he speaks on “Poetry and the People,” this Thursday. Sponsored by the summer school and the various departments of the university in operation during the summer, these weekly lectures will deal with literature, history, folklore and foreign policies. They will try to “give the summer student something more than a classroom education,” Dean John Cooke said. Beginning the series, Engle will relate the poetry of American tradition v/ith the American people at 2:15 p.m. in Hancock Auditorium. A professor of English at the University of Iowa, Engle is an accomplished writer of poetry and prose. His 1934 edition of “American Song” won acclaim as the heir of the tradition of “Leaves of Grass,” by Whitman. While at Oxford he wrote “Break the Heart’s Anger,” 1936; “Corn,” 1939; and “West of Midnight,” 1941. Dr. Aerol Arnold of the English department, co-sponsor of the event, said that Hamilton was director of a program in creative writing at the University of Iowa as well as a Rhodes Scholar. In 1945, Hamilton wrote “American Child,” a book of poems featuring a sonnet sequence about his daughter. Another volume of lyrics was issued in 1951, “The Words of Love.” In addition to his poetry volumes, Hamilton published a novel in 1941, “Always the Land,” about the conflicts between generations of farmers. Next week, the summer lecture series win feature Indian Folklore with Ataloa telling of the Chickasaw folklore “Along the Moccasin Trail.” Big Faculty Visits Here Institutes Fulfill Need Three Summer Institutes will continue on campus this week initiating a summer filled with practical and educational institutes and clinics sponsored by university departments and schools in connection with SC’s summer school.

Plans for the summer point to one of the best the University has experienced. We are proud to present an excellent visiting and permanent faculty who are eager to give you challenging academic experiences. During the summer Los Angeles will host two big conventions: that of the National Education Association, beginning on June 26 and that of the Democratic party, beginning on July 11th. On June 30th I am retiring from the University and a new Dean will take over, Dr. Paul E. Hadley, of the Comparative Literature and the International Relations departments. I am sure that you will find yourselves in good hands. Aside from academic activities the University Recreation Association has scheduled dinners, dances, and frequent week-end trips. We believe that all the students will enjoy some or all of the phases of . this program. (Continued on page 2) Two Terms Begin Today An estimated 8000 students are enrolled in summer classes at SC this year with more than 5000 students beginning classes today in the six week and ten week sessions. Registrar David Evans reported. Registrar Evans said that this year’s summer enrollment was running about the same as last year’s enrollment which brought 7.684 students from every state in the union with the exception of Rhode Island to the SC campus. The six week session will run to July 30. It will be followed by a month's postsession during August. In addition to regular classes in all fields of study, there will be special courses for teachers attending the National Education Association convention (beginning this Sunday), classes to tie in with the Democratic National Convention (beginning July 11) and institutes for high school teachers of biological sciences, chemistry and physics. Offical figures released last year revealed that foreign students from 39 countries throughout the world had attended SC during the summer. In the United States, California. as usual, led all states with 5,942 students attending. Texas and Arizona followed with 57 and 40 students attending classes. Last year’s figures showed that the men outnumbered the women during the Summer Session by 2,398. There were 5.041 men in gontrast to 2,643 women on campus. Evans said that this year’s summer sessions will probably have a student break-down of much the same ratio. He said that 1200 students had already pre-registered for summer courses and that an official count of the 1960 Summer Session students wouid not be available until mid-August. 12 O Casey Pictures Will Be Developed Readings for Sean O'Casey's “Pictures in the Hallway” will be held today and tomorrow in Stop Gap Theatre in an attempt to fill 12 roles for the July SC production. Dr. Bernard Dukore, director, said that the readings would be | held from 3 to 6 p.m. and would continue until all 12 roles were filled. The SC production will be presented July 19, 20, 21, 22 and 23 at 8:30 p.m. in Stop Gap Theatre. “Pictures in the Hallway” is based on the second of O’Casey’s six autobiographical novels and deals with the adventures of a young boy growing up in Dublin. “His revolutionary movement, life’s wonders and beauties and adventures as seen through O’Casey’s memories of his youth are recalled,” Dr. Dukore said. “Parts of the play are funny, others are sad; some are happy, others angry—but all of it is filled with a tremendous joy and love of life,” he added. O’Casey, from the outset of his career, had been in the center of a storm of controversy. “The Plough and the Stars,” now considered one of the finest Irish plays written, was greeted by a patriotic public riot when Dublin’s Abbey Theatre first presented it. O’Casey now is universally recognized as Ireland’s greatest living dramatist.
