Herr Alfred W. von Heymel, editor of the Insel Publishing Company of Germany, will deliver a lecture on "Deutsche und Amerikanische Kuenstleriche Kultur," under the auspices of the Deutscher Verein, in Emerson D this evening at 8 o'clock. The lecture will be in German and will be open to the public.
Herr von Heymel gave up an active career as a lieutenant in the German army to devote himself to literary pursuits. He is already recognized as a leading critic and essayist on art and literature, and has written a number of poems, the most notable of which is a dramatic poem, "The Death of Narcissus."
The Deutscher Verein will hold a "kneipe" in honor of Herr von Heymel in the Trophy Room of the Union after the lecture, at which he will speak on "Sport in Germany." Mr. William D. Orcutt, the representative of the University Press, will also speak at the "kneipe."
