PAULEY^ELEGTCg^ PRESIDENT OF WOMAN'S CLUB "Talk Given toy Sandburg at Meeting Members Vote, to Adop : Hospital Fund Project. Mrs. J. L. Pauley was electe president.of the Woman's club Tues day evening at the general meeting at the First Methodist church Sh succeeds Mrs. J. Curtis Amen wh was elected a director of the club Mrs. E. H. Wagner was elected re cording secretary, Mrs. E. H. Hunt er, corresponding secretary, and Mrs. Ira Stinson, financial secre tary. The vote was unanimous. It was voted on the recommendation of the civic committee to set aside the sum of ?350 to he used to provide hospital care for maternity cases during the period of a year the recipient of the care to be selected by Mrs. Mable Blaise and two members of the civic committee. Carl Sandburg, poet and biographer,-who .was the speaker of the evening gave his "Poems-Songs- Stories," talking in a sJow informal .manner of a number of things, reading-his verse in a low musical voice and singing snatches from ballads in an amusing and wholly pie way. : . Personal Taste. Governs. There is just one factor which has governed in the world of. art and that is personal taste," he said "Men have worked at building UD a science of esthetics which would "offer standards for those in quest of beauty so that everyone might be able to Judge whether'or not a work of. art was really and authentically Jirt, . ; - ' · _ "It is not a science at all because its basis is too hazardous. The matter always goes back to personal taste. No one is so experienced m the tragic, the rhythmic or the comic that he will register to every masterpiece. ; "There are not enough people who sit quietly and think about the things they have done. People don't see .what they look at and don't hear what they listen to. They think they see things which aren't there. 'Civilization rests on a diversity of opinion and when the time .'comes' Could Write a Book About It "Nine years ago after my little girl was jbom. dead, I took Lydia E. PirJcham's Vegetable Compound for about four months. The next year I became the mother of afine 11 pound baby; boy. After he was born, I kept on with the medicine tp build me up. Four months ago I was nervous and. rundown and suffered 'from other troubles which'I. knew Lydia E.,P:nkJiam Vegetable Compound would relieve so I started taking it and now I feel fine again. Many of my friends could write a book on the good the Vegetable Compound has doqe them.''--Mrs. W. Overman*, 918 Regina Ave., St. Louis, Mo. I when everyone is ready to agree 1 then civilization's dying of dryrot E. W. ScrJpps, one of the; founders of the Scripps-Howard newspapers, had a habit of calling one of his workers into his office and telling him of some change which was to be made in the policy of the paper telling him he disagreed with it. He would then ask the man his opinion of the change and if the man agreed with him, he would not be Jikely to get a promotion very .soon. When we all become yes men, civilization !s dead. , Poetry Definitions. Mr. Sandburg then read a number of tentative definitions of poetry, among them "poetry is a projection across silence of cadences so arranged to .break that silence" and "poetry is made of words, and words of syllables, and syylables of air and itls all such a thin material that we don't know'what we have." Another definition called poetry a nuance between two moments when people say "Listen--what was it?-Did you you see it ?" or poetry is a sea animal living on land and wanting to fly. As his last definition Mr. Sand burg described poetry as a pack sack of invisible keepsakes. Thi definition Mr. Sandburg dedicated t he people who expect a book o poetry to be like an- arithmetic with all the answers in the back--thos who think a tree is just what thej see above ground--those who hav no dreams and imaginings. H quoted John Butler Yeats, father o William Yeats, who said that wha can be explained is not poetry. , Culture Hounds. · "If people are too liberal with heir explanations as' to how ant why they appreciate this or tha work of art they will bear watch ng," Mr. Sandburg said. "They are robably what newspaper people tnow as culture-hounds. Mr. Sandburg read .a number o lis poems including "Prayers o Steel" , from "Smoke . and Steel,' Explanation of Love" from' "Gooc doming, America," "Wilderness 1 rom "Cornhuskers" and. "I/jecia tarlight." Three poems which he aid were written in the American anguage as distinguished from the English which he read were Psycog," "Sliphorn Jazz" and Maybe." A. group which he de's- nated as having been written out '. the midwest landscape include Timber Moon" and ; "Smoke and Steel and "For Ypu." "There 'is a great argument as to what is a folk song as distinguished, from an art song," Mr. Sandburg said. "I have collected what I believe to 'be folk songs :ln my book, 'The American Song Bag.' He sang verses from a number of these including "The Buffalo Range," from Texas 70 years ago, ' The Dishwashing-Song, 1 from^ths-prariea of Nebraska, "A Casey Jones' forerunner which was sung on the~C P and Q railroad; -a love song from Kentucky; "Mag's Song," an English ballad from the mountains of Tennessee, the "Boll Weevil" song and some spirituals, "Two White Bosses," and a song which had been sung by'the slaves more than 100 years ago.
