NO WRITER ATTRIBUTED

Copey, most venerable and most beloved of Harvard's institutions, is seventy-six today. His birthday will be celebrated at the Harvard Club of New York, where the famous teacher will give one of his annual readings to members of the Charles Townsend Copeland Association. Tonight's reading will mark the thirtieth of a series which began in 1906, the only break in the chain having occurred last year, when Copey passed his birthday in Cambridge.

The Charles Townsend Copeland Association, which gathers yearly for this occasion, represents a unique group in literary history. So far as is known, it forms the only alumni society ever dedicated to a living man. The members, all former pupils of Copey, include such men as Walter D. Edmonds, Walter Lippmam, Heywood Broun. Bernard DeVoto, Donald Moffat, and Oliver LaFarge.
