The Texas Review, founded nine years ago by the University
of Texas, has been taken over by Southern Methodist University
and will be published hereafter in Dallas under the name of the
Southwest Review. It will be issued quarterly, and the following
announcement is made by the publisher: "The Southwest Re-
view, being the only magazine of its kind in this section of the
country, intends to make its pages a forum for the expression
of the mind of the Southwest and will try to encourage those
writers who are bringing into literature the rich background of
Texas and adjacent states. To a large extent, the history, land-
scape, folk-lore and peculiarities of the Southwest have never been
adequately treated. The Review will be especially hospitable to
those writers who in the best sense really represent the South-
west. As in the past, it will print the best available verse, read-
able prose articles on literary, social and political topics, and in-
telligent surveys of current books. It will have high standards
and will be only as popular as these standards permit. Variety,
timeliness, and the achievement of a Southwestern flavor will be
the aims of the magazine.
