PLANS INTERCHANGE ALFRED NOYES, CALLED TENNYSON'S SUCCESSOR, WROTE POETRY AT NINE New Fiction WITH OTHER NATIONS The Harbor Master 12 Impulse Hit Him and He Others. He Says. He's Been Doing It Ever to Turn Out Verses. Alfred Nayes, Author o it-ake, tSlierWDO&'The. A LKKED NOTK8, the noted English poet with the. cuplionlstlc name, who tia.t Just come uvr to nay hli firt visit to America, lok very youns to wear the. mantle that Swin burne, KipllnK. lMmund Gasse and others have put upon him. These men have said that Noyes 1h the Krcatcst English poet fluce Tennyson. Mr. Noyes, modestly wcarinR the mantle, is J2 years old iind looks younger. This doesn't Imply that he hasn't .Well defined opinions on noetrv imii what It should he. He has, and he j ought to have, as 'he has leen writing I It for more than twenty ears. one. I morning, when he was 0 years old, he awoke early and relt an impulse to write a poem. He followed it out, and ever j dace, off Hnd on, he has leeii feellns and following out similar Impulses. ,V "I have lived 11 ureal deal In the I open air," he said the morning after his arrival, when sought out in his hotel ART AND AFFECTION AT THE DINNER TO MR. DRAKE Programme Drawings by Noted Artists Personal Regard the Spirit of the Feast. "Hats Off and Up for Drake!" is Charles Dana Gibson's Contributed Sketch. Ten Clubs and 400 Men Representing Art.

Tho programme, with their espec ially contributed drawlncs l,v the runt noted artists In the oiinlrv. represented thousands of do1lnt. if a labor of loie can be measured by dollars. And a; the doorway of the big dining room of the Aldlne stood ,lo Strenkert with a young assistant printing on the spot beautiful proofs of a half i.,ne nf Drake which were distributed ns souvenirs of the dinner. "With Joe Strenkert. Just as with V Hopklnson Smith, who presided at the speakers', table, It was a mutter of love and honor for Drake, for Joe Strenkert haa been right hand man down at the De Vlnne Press for over a quarter of a century and he ha helped to put through a great deal of the work that haa won such high praise for Drake In the publishing world. The dinner was attended by over 400 of tho best known men in the art and writing and printing worlds of America, for 1n each Drake has been a big factor for morn than a generation, yet It was primarily a personal dinner. The Idea of It took form In the minds of several of Drake's friends about the same time a few months ago, and Individual trib utes which wore formulated simulta neously quite by nccldent vvero consol idated. The committee having the din ner In char no was made up of V. Hop klnson Smith, chairman: Herbert S. Houston, secretary: Charles Dana Gib Mn, Cass Oill.ert.

V 'Men tt as Brm m rar-J WM.-CiMa-irt- A r Followed It as Well as Since and Finds It Pays and naked to plve an account of him self, "and I felt the Influence of the open nlr, I wrote about the kind of stun 1 write now, I think. I liked to read poetry, and at IS had read about all tho KnKlUh poets. Which did 1 like best? Why Tennyson and Swinburne and Shelley and Keats and Words worth. Hut I don't think I ever played the sedulous ape, as Stevenson would say. I whs Influenced, of course. None of us can help being Influenced by what up read, but I never deliberately Imitated." Sir. Noyes was 14 when he wrote his tlrst epic. "It was In rhymed verse." he said, "and composed of thousands of lines. 11 was an allegory, describing the voyage through life as on a ship, from Infancy to old age. I sent it to James I'alne the novelist, lie sent It back with an en couraging letter, but advising me to read more and not to try to publish anything for years." Mr. Noyes did wait a few years five, for he was all of 19 when his first poem was printed. This was "The Symbolist, which appeared In the weekly supple ment of the London Timrs. M that time he was In Kxctcr College, Oxford, and achieving such a reputation for his prowess as an athlete, especially in row ing on the class crew, that his literary tendencies were regarded by his class mates as a Joke. Nevertheless as soon as he left college he went to London Hnd began to devote all his time and energy to writing poetry, though when he wrote his great epic, "Drake," he dedicated It to his rowing coach Instead of to any of his celebrated literary friends. It would seem that a great deal of courage would be required these days to set out deliberately to make a living out of poetry writing atone. Hut Mr. Noyes has an opinion on that score too. "I can't seo why poetry should be regarded differently from the other arts, he Mild. "It didn't occur to me that there should be any difficulty. People don't exclaim that a painter Is a wonderful man because he devotes ners. Gibson showed their spirit by say lug: 'Vmi cannot give too many dinners to h man like Drake.' "When the dinner was announced Theodore L. De Vlnne. the dean and Under of the master printers of the country, who has been associated with Drake for forty years, wrote at once that he had given his doctor special orders that he must be got Into shape to attend the dinner. And he did attend, and gave expression lo affection for and appreciation of Drake. "George W. Cable wrote from Ber muda, where ho happened lo be, M re gret that, being out of the country. I cannot be at the Joyous gathering, but 1 gladly tell you that never elsewhere have I seen so great modesty and devo tion of character so unfailingly com bined with such masterful gifts of achievement as In Druki..' "Joseph Pennell wrote from London: 'During all my life Drake has been my guide, philosopher and friend; and he has done more for tho advancement of Illustration than any man living, far more than R Hopklnson Smith suggests or probably knows." Not only from far but near came evidences of the deep personal quality Drake had put Into all of his relation ships. The day of the dinner ltobert I'nderwood Johnson, editor of the Cen tury Magntiiir. called up to ask If Drake's colleagues on the magazine could present a Chinese vase filled with flowers a-i a i-peclal tribute to him. This vaie occupied a place of honor Immediately before Drake at tho speakers' tahlp, and lxlilnd him were stretched Chinese tapestries worth a king's ransom, and Indeed they were used, It was said, as decorations at roal functions In Pekln. At the dinner all those present con tributed to the making of a book of re membrance. Hach guest signed his name on Japanese vellum paper and the sheets were then bound Into a sumptuous volume, to which R Hop klnson Smith has contributed the fol lowing appreciation; "To him more than any one man Is due the perfection which exists to-day In the results obtained from the half tone plate. The older men, myself among them, who saw him stand over the De Vlnne presses hour after hour teaching the printers the art of en riching the darks without smudging or sacrificing the lights of the artist's original drawings need no reminder of what he has done for them and their work, but the younger and more re cent additions to our ranks, those who may think the present day perfection came as a matter of course, can af ford to stop and think back, lifting their hats, as we do, to one whose un tiring patience, Inborn love of beauty and consummate skill made It possible." ltobert Bridges of Kcrlbner'a com posed for the occasion the following "Hallad of Drake, the Collector," to the air of "Fifty Cents": When Drake got tired of higher rt, Of color and pen anil wash, He used to go with his aoul apart Anil call all painting bosh. Then Drake went down to Chatham atreet, A most artistic apot, In search of miscellaneous lost And this Ii what ha bought: CHOrtUfl. A lot of brass and bottles of Bass, Copper and rings and ruga, Some, tapestrlea and Hpanlah fltas And Innocent lightning bugs. A big bandbox and worthless racks, A bronia and Iron fence; Boy high and low, The Man With a Hoe, ab thT oest but It cental Thinks Poetry Must Replace the Creeds That We Have Lost in Recent Times. Here on First Visit to the States Wife Is an American Though. himself to his art without taking up n side business. It wems that people have got In the habit of looking on' a poet as a sort of fool. They can't ex pect one to wrlto good poetry In off moments between other Jobs." Mr, Noyes refused even to consider any other Jobs and as a result he has In ten years published ten volumes of verso ranging through nearly every conceivable etylo and subject and mood, but always winning high praise for uniform excellence. He Is now be ginning to win rewards more material than favorable criticism, though It niui-t be admitted that In some of the years his pecuniary protlts were not so great as reported. Since his works were collected Into a two volume edi tion a little over a year ngo between 7,000 and 8,000 copies have lieen sold, truly a "best seller" among books of vcrt-e. "The purpose oNpoctry to-day Is the same as It always has been," said Mr. Noyes. "Hut Its sphere is far wider. Its opportunity for development was stated by Matthew Arnold In 1SS0 when he said that the future of poetry was Immense because In poetry, as time goes on. the race will come to find mi ever surer anil surer stay. There are reasons why the race finds a sure stay In poetry. "I think the mission of the poetry of the present day is to make up for what w have lo.t In other lines. We have lost our creeds these last twenty years, the deeds that kept the world moving In the previous century. Poetry and literature hae got to take their place, to lextoie the sense of tho divine In life. They have got to gle to every sphere of modern life the truth with what Wordsworth call 'the light that never was on sea or land." That touch of consecration Is every poet's dream. "And that is what the modern poets are doing. It may sound ludicrous to say that If a pout writes about a sky MTaer his mission is to consecrate the sk scraper. Hut that is what It Is nevertheless."

What the poet has to say on militarism should be Interesting. Ho confirms In it new way the old principle that poetry should bo non-controvcrslal. "Poetry cannot possibly be limited to party Interests," ho said. "It Is universal. I am aiming at tho com bination of law and liberty In my poetry. The prose writer has to set himself a narrower aim. He Is lighting for liberty or for law. And ho sees things In the light of his passion. Hut the poet must always survey things In harmony and link them together In his affirmation-, which have a universal Import and sig nificance. "Tho poet looks at things, as It were, from tho centre. He feels the whole universe of being coordinated and linked In 'harmony. Science and phi losophy work In the opposite direction from the clrcumfcrcnco lo the centre. Tho multiplicity of details obscures the vision which the poet, looking from within outward, sees more clearly. All great poetry proceeds from that cen tral source of harmony from which tho great metrical cosmos Itself proceeds. The rhythms and cadences and har monies of poetry correspond to the co.-mlc movement, the pulsing hearts, swinging tides and wheeling stars. "I conceive that the luuctlon of poetry Is to bring us Into communion with that harmony which Is the basis of the universe. The business of the poet Is to set the fact, the every day prosaic fact, the commonplace thing, In relation to the eternal." This Is not only Mr. Noyes'n first visit to America but also his tlrst trip away from Kngland. Ho has wanted to visit America for a long time, espe cially as 'his wife Is an American, the daughter of the late Col. (3. It. Daniels, who served under lien.
