The Bookmen A RECENT ADDITION to the extra-curricular scene is Bookmen, an organized discussion group that has not existed on campus since 1946. Bookmen was revived early in the spring semester by a few students interested in an organization for a serious exchange of ideas on contemporary literature and the arts. Since the " old " Bookmen provided a pattern for such an organization, a renaissance of the club was soon under- Seated: Richard L. Kilmer ( moderator I , James Bates (president). Standing: Frank Haendler (vice president), Hugh Schadle (secretary-librarian). way. As the idea grew, so did the number of interested students and, after a speedy formation of a constitution and election of permanent officers, Bookmen emerged as a firm and full-fledged campus organization. In its basic plan the club follows the pre-war Bookmen. The subject matter for discussions, formally defined as " literature and the allied arts, " actually includes any field from which a " meaty " discussion can be drawn. Politics, Economics, Science, History are all delved into by the members. The only definite restriction to subject matter is that material for discussion must be drawn from writings of the contemporary period, which is roughly outlined as writings from the middle of the nineteenth century to the present. The discussions themselves are relatively informal. A member may either present a paper on his topic, which is afterwards discussed by the members, or he may simply initiate the discussion directly and guide it along various phases he has planned. Very often the meeting time is divided in half, and two members pre- sent separate or related topics. The structure of the club has few ramifications. The officers include a president, who arranges for a program for each meeting and presides between discussions; a vice president, who is in charge of new membership proceedings; and a secretary-librarian, who keeps a record of meetings and arranges for borrowing and lending of books between members. The time and place of meeting is decided by all the members at the begin- ning of each semester. Bookmen ' s re-activation this year has met with great success. The members hope that continued interest on the part of students will re-establish its firm place of the past as a campus organization.
