REVERSAL AROUSES
PRIZE PLAY JUDGES
Pulitzer Award to Columbia Pro
fessor Draws Scathing Attack
by Owen Johnson.
r.v u IP Press.
XKW YORK. May 17.—Announce
ment by Prof. William Lyon Phelps
of Vale and Owen Johnson, author,
1 iiat tin ir votes as members of the
Play jury of the Pulitzer Prize Com
mittee had been overridden in the re
eent award of the prize to "Hell-Bent
Per Heaven" yesterday, created a stir
in theatrical and literary circles.
Prof Phelps and Mr. Johnson voted
for "Tile Show-Off." a comedy by
George Kelly. Clayton Hamilton, the
third member of the jury, voted for
"Hell-Bent Per Heaven," which was
written by Hatcher Hughes, a pro
fessor at Columbia University. Final
■ •ward of the prize to the. Hughes
play was made by the Columbia ad-*
vfsory board, headed by Hr. Nicholas
Murray Butler, pesident of Columbia.
Mr. Johnson was outspoken in hiej
criticism of the awarding of the
prize to file Hughes play despite the
piuy jury's majority vote for "The
Show-Off.”
ltrverwa.l Astounding.
The author of the winning play is !
» member of the Columbia faculty." j
••a nl Mr. Johnson, “and this makes the j
-ituation delicate enough to warrant
complete explanation. Our com-j
mittee was astounded by the revers- i
I. We were not even given the j
courtesy of an explanation.”
Mr. Johnson said he would never
again serve as a member of the Pu- j
iitzer prize committee.
Prof Phelps said over the telephone |
rum New Haven that “The Show-Off"
inning a majority vote, was the only
•lay recommended to the Columbia
advisory board for the award.
Mr. Hamilton declined to comment
m the announcement beyond saying
hat Professor Phelps' statement was
• orreel.
There j s said to hate been one
other instance when a jury's report
was overridden. This was in 3921,
when, it was reported, the novel jury
recommended that the prize be
awarded to "Main Street" by Sinclair
Lewis, whereas Ihe advisory hoard
awarded it to “The Age of Innocence,"

The countess, together with her

on the liner France from Paris, leav
ing behind the count, who departed
for Vienna when his bride started

garding her marriage to the titled
Austrian. When newspaper men asked
if the countess would return to
*( Europe, or if the count would come
to America to reclair her, both Col.
