IOWA CITY, March 28.--Production of creative or critical writing now may win for its author an advanced degree at the University of Iowa without the construction of the traditional type of dissertation. This departure, believed to be new in American' university graduate study, has been announced by 'Prof. Norman Foerster, director of the school of letters. The new plan breaks away from the customary viewpoint of a dissertation based upon research in language or in literary history. Candidates will be expected to form, some acquaintance with the four means of understanding literature, but must specialize in either Imaginative writing, literary criticism and history or language. For the school of letters to establish a vocational school for authors and critics is not the object of the plan. Professor Foerster explained. Its real purpose Js literary research in the broadest sense, the endeavor of an independent mind to make^ clearer some part of human experience thru any form of literary activity. The success of the system will not be judged by the production of masterpieces of imaginative and critical literature. It is believed by Professor Foerster that all types of literary students will receive "rigorous and appropriate discipline and that while some may become authors, the majority will become teachers of above average ability.
