ROBERT C . WEAVER Funds Disposal Questioned by Y Last year when we returned to school we were informed , somewhat to our dismay , that the campus Forum had been dissolved , and that its function and budget had been incorporated under the faculty Committee on Lectures and Recitals .

Book Review " These Low Grounds " [Newspaper Article] — Lincolnian — 7 October 1940
Book Review These Low Grounds by Waters Edward Tur _pin ( Harper ’s New York , 1937 pp 344 ) by _ii _. A . B . Jones-Quarte y Almost any book portraying the life of the Negro in American society in any western society—is naturally bound to be more or less a tale of woe , and Mr . Turpin ’ s first novel is no exception . Indeed , it goes three better than that , for These Low Grounds is the story of four generations of tragedy . True , we have at the end a hint of the happy-ever-after destiny in favor of the fourth generation , But that is only on the romantic side . Before he reaches the agonizing point at which ‘ he gives up the race-fight ‘ for love and personal security , Jimmy-Lew Grundy ’ s dearest hope , that of building a ‘ good school for the Negro children of Shrewsbury , on the East ’ n Sho’ o’ Maryland , is blasted to earth by a lynch outrage which leaves his young strength completely spent . Thus he becomes the inheritor of an unbroken tradition of tragedy , even though ...
