SENIOR JOINS RANKS OF UNDERGRADUATE AUTHORS

NO WRITER ATTRIBUTED

The ranks of Harvard undergraduate authors have been swelled by the publication of "Kapnos" by A. J. Patek Jr. '26.

"Kapnos," published in duodecimo size by the Southworth Press of Portland, Me., owes its form, the author states, to Logan Pearsall Smith's "Trivia." "Whereas Mr. Smith views life in a pretty way," says Patek, "in the quiet decay of a country gentleman, 'Kapnos,' contrastedly, is written from the viewpoint of youth and of the many wandering thoughts that strike youth and perhaps baffle him."

In the "Apology" which prefaces his work, on sale now at the Dunster House Book Shop. Patek writes: "I am indebted to Mr. Logan Pearsall Smith whose "Trivia" suggested the idea and form of this book, but especially to myself, whose untiring efforts to find a printer made this book possible."
