ABSTRACT
Focuses on the publication of column "New Verse" on poetry of new poets by the newspaper "Providence Sunday Journal." Report that the publication of the unpublished poetry which the editor thought to be of honorable literary quality, was a newspaper experiment; Communication from Rhode Island state group, the Quinsnicket Writers; Allegation of the group on the paper of giving the public a very false idea of what passes for poetry or verse; Appreciation by some readers of this lively experiment; Apprehensions on the column; View that such a column is not subject to the financial vicissitudes of the little magazines, yet even with the continued cooperation of poets and of Providence Journal authorities it should probably not continue too long.
