Another Clash Between Prize
Committee and Drama
Critics Possible.
By the Associated Press.
NEW YORK, May 4 —Possibility of
another clash of judgment between
the Pulitzer Prize Committee and
drama critics enlivened interest in
tonight’s announcement of the 1935
Pulitizer awards.
Columbia University authorities
again were keeping strictly secret
their selections of winners in Journal
ism and letters.
The Drama Critics’ Circle, formed
last year after its members disagreed
with the Pulitizer play selection, “The
Old Maid,” has stolen a march on
the Columbia officials by labeling
Sherwood Anderson's “Winterset” as
last year’s best play.
The May issue of Stage Magazine
has also selected "Winterset.”
Winners will be announced at the
annual dinner of the Columbia School
of Journalism alumni by Nicholas
Murray Butler, president of the uni
The prize for the best American
novel, won last year for 1934 by
Josephine Winslow Johnson’s “Now
in November,” is another of the Pulit

The journalism awards are for a
newspaper, a reporter, a Washington
or foreign correspondent, an editorial
writer and a cartoonist.
Other letter awards are for verse,
American biography and history.
Hill-Billy Bands Needed.
LINCOLN, Nebr. </P).—James Lewis,
Lincoln playground director, told dele
gates to a recreation conference that
what Nebraska needed was a hill-billy
band on every playground. His recipe:
"A hill-billy band is something that
can be gotten together in every town
in the State. You don't need musi
cians, Instruments or anything else.
All you need are a few boys and girls
who want to harmonize.”

Hotel for Hobo Cats and Dogs
Luxurious With Sunken Garden
By the Associated Press.
CHICAGO, May 4.—Flagstone pav
ing in the sunken garden was started
yesterday as the last step toward com
pletion of the Anti-Cruelty Society's
$100,000 "hotel de luxe" for stray cats
, and dogs.
Around the luxurious exercise yard,
workmen were erecting an 8-foot stone
wall to guard hoboes of the animal
world from the prying eyes of humans.
The garden Itself was a canine and
feline heaven, what with Its two big
maple trees—and the flagstones.
The hotel, a 3-story affair, made
possible by a bequest of the late
Marion E. McConnell, boasts still more
On the flrat floor iu the kitchen,
with electric refrigeration and pastel
tinted walls; the dogs' bath room, spot
less white; and kennels, with glass
doors leading to the gaiden.
There were two rooms for cats, one a
many-celled cage on wheels ard the
other more commodious, with shelves
to accommodate leaping felines.
On the street level was the 2-room
free clinic and operating room, equip
ped with the latest facilities for treat
ment of cat and dog Ills and hurts.
Nearby were offices and reception room.
Hidden away was the death cham
ber, for electrocution or asphyxiation
of animals. Dog and cat owners could
pick the easiest way out for their pets.
