The amount of attention he is giving to petty gambling matters conveys the impression that time has commenced to hang heavily upon his hands; that a most delightful degree of law and order has been achieved with respect to the more substantial subjects of robbery and gun play and that, after all, the notion that things are pretty bad in Chicago and elsewhere in Cook County is just an erroneous conception. If Mr. Swanson keeps headed in the direction he is now headed he will be the source of considerable regret to the citizenry at large and of considerable delight to those per sons whose accustomed activities are made more safe and profitable when the incumbent of the state's attorney's of fice devotes his energies to such unimportant pursuits as a raid upon the Northside Jai-Alai games. Mr. Swanson, at a moment's notice, probably would be come eloquent in explaining that his attack upon the Rainbo Fronton was simply in observance of his oath of office; that offenses against the law, great or small, must be dealt with— and in making other correct, but in this case meaningless, observations. What Mr. Swanson probably would not explain is that despite the obvious need for his services in other directions he finds it more convenient to cater to the wishes of fan atics than to ignore them in their fanatical requests. ? CONGRESSMAN M. A. MICHAELSON'S appeal for public sympathy is a touching one. The argu ment about being imposed upon by a relative is a slightly venerable one and has done good service all down through the ages. Without having a convenient brother-in-law the Dry congressman's leaking trunk might have taken several pages of the Congressional Record for explaining but now Mr. Michaelson may return to his duties in connection with upholding the Noble Experiment with no loss of standing whatsoever. The Drys are sympathetic and understanding among themselves. A leaking trunk, under other circumstances, might result in some small lapse of confidence. But, as is well known, relatives are recalcitrant. Prophets — and their convictions — are eternally without honor among their own people. But not, it may be noted, without a neat bit of practical help when the occasion requires it. ? THE undergoing of the trials and annoyances of travel to Derby Day at Louisville was understandable enough in the day when Illinois was barren of the thoroughbred sport and even now the allure of the Ken tucky classic cannot be gainsaid. But if Ulinoisans who Editorially have become inveterate patrons of j Derby Day at Churchhill Downs were to reserve some little of the enthusiasm thus expended for the home-town events the day of the return of Illinois racing to its former glory and prestige would be greatly hastened. ? THERE seems to be little unanimity on The Tribune's crime broadcasts. While the price in unfavorable pub licity to the city is high, the results are worth it, is the contention of some. Others insist that Chicago is be ing unreasonably and unwarrantedly blackened by this wide, radio distribution of crime news. Others still, tak ing no part in any of the serious considerations involved, regard the broadcasts as just good entertainment, enlivening the quiet evening hours. For our part, while there is no consolation in these fur ther contributions to the city's notoriety, the fact appeals to us that this contribution from the Tower on North Michigan Avenue is a valuable aid to the police depart ment, and who shall say that this little old department does not need, in the present circumstance, all the aids within reach! Outside of some rather sharp criticisms of the entertain ment features of the programs, which must be listened to uninterruptedly in eight hour stretches, the squadsmen are high in their approval. Their only other objection is that upon arrival at a point from which a crime has been re ported they usually encounter a large and critical audience who want action and are not slow to voice their disapproval if the show is a disappointing one. ?> THERE is a disturbing and mournful air about the re-openings of the golf clubs for the coming season. Locker room procedure, which has enjoyed the sanc tion of time and usage, is threatened with certain radical revisions which may leave the institution so severely bereft of its former congenial characteristics that it will be unrec ognizable even to its best friends. In other words, the drab shadow of the Eighteenth Amendment has gathered about the golf clubs — somewhat tardy, it is true, in the estimation of some, but both too early and too serious as far as the popular vote is con cerned. It cannot be said that the clubs have not received due notice of the eventuality, but the ears of the committees had become accustomed to the shrill and long-sustained ad vance note of warning and it had come to be regarded as a natural phenomenon of the day rather than the heavy- footed approach of Enforcement. We shall now see whether devotion to the game itself shall be able to master the hardships that are in prospect. — MARTIN J.

The Yachting Season Afafiears to Windward ON one day, indefinitely between May 1 and 30, Lake Michigan becomes a blue lake frolicsome in the sun. On that day it is no longer surly with winter, a drab yellow water frothed now and then by angry white- caps and sullen under a gray sky. This first day it is fresh and tidy, blue and white under a warming heaven. A fringe of green on its banks. Always by May 30, Lake Michigan makes ready for the official opening of the yachting season. Even before that official opening, early sails are a-tilt from Chicago harbors — sails that stand an instant against the farthest eastern skyline be fore losing the Town behind the round of the world. Yet early or late at the beginning, Chicago yachting reaches the height of its season with the Mack inac Race. A peak attained exactly at 4 p. m., Saturday afternoon, July 20. Perhaps the greatest fresh water race in the world. ENTRANTS for the Mackinac Race — there are 30 or more start ers for the 331 -mile contest — include the formidable Siren, winner of the event in '27 and '28. The Siren, owned by the Karas brothers, will be driven to the limit of canvas, hull and By GONFAL seamanship this year to equal the three- time-win record still held by the famous Valmore, once of Chicago and now of Eastern waters. Comet, winner of the cruiser divi sion last year, will again cross the starter's line. Owned by Howarth Beaumont, Comet is ready to account for herself in any man's race. Commodore George Woodruff's flag ship, Romance, will lead the power yachts in the cross water hike to Mackinac, that is if Mizpah, Com mander Eugene F. McDonald's new craft has nothing to say about it — for Mizpah, designed by Cox and Stevens and built by the Newport News Shipping and Dry Dock Com pany, is 185 feet over all, 27 feet six inches in beam, draws 10 feet of water and comes to 595 gross tons. Her twin Diesels turn up 800 horse power. She logs l7]/z knots. Albert Pack's Fame, formerly the Speejac\s, J. B. Berryman's S\ylar\ and J. B. Mailers Jr.'s Alacrity are to be clocked over the run also. THE Bay View Yacht Club of De troit will start its annual Mack inac race on the same date so that De troit and Chicago fleets will be at the island at the same time. Besides which Mackinac Island authorities promise a splendid reception for visit ing sailors beginning with the presen tation of a loving cup to the winners of racing and cruising divisions. Never in the history of Mackinac racing has a contest been postponed because of bad weather. Besides Mackinac, yachtsmen will revel in the C. Y. C. series for the Sir Thomas Lipton Cup. Since 1902, this famous silver trophy has been in yearly competition — saving, be it 12 TWECWICAGOAN noted, the war years. Perhaps the most beautiful sporting trophy in the world, the Lipton Cup is the prise for "R" craft speed and seamanship; "R" boats are the feature racers of the Great Lakes. Last season the famous Ardelle, owned and sailed by Com modore Clark Wright, took the Lipton award. This year the Ardelle will compete for Messrs. Giaver and Mas- see as will Jonnie, so named for Mr. Massee's youngest son. Skippered by William Giaver she should turn in a shrewd race. Commodore Samuel Dauchy's new "R" boat, already en route from the East should offer ample competition. The new boat was de signed by C. D. Mower and built by Lawley and Sons of Boston. The Sari, Mitzi and J^ancy, three trim and swift craft of the C. Y. C. fleet will sail the Lipton Race. The 7\ancy was bought this winter by Messrs. Kimball and Railton, own ers of the Gossoon, a former Lipton winner. Gossoon herself was orig inally owned and built for Charles Francis Adams, now Secretary of the Navy. She and her skipper were prominent figures in Eastern yachting for years and enjoyed an international reputation among yachtsmen. Now Commodore Thomas Archer, Bay View Yacht Club of Detroit, has en tered a second Gossoon on inland waters. Commodore Archer's Gos soon won the Great Lakes "R" Cham pionship last Fall on Lake Ontario off Rochester, New York, and under the auspices of the Rochester Yacht Club. The new Gossoon is a smart craft, to be estimated with utmost respect. ARIEL, designed and built under i the direction of the late Addison Hannan, and three times winner of the Lipton cup, will compete again in '29. Owned by a syndicate headed by Mal colm Vail, she has been outfitted in a complete new rig; her performance is a matter of uneasy speculation among competitors. Ariel was a winner in '23, then sailed by the late Ogden T. McClurg. Also the Mitzi, Frank P. Merkle, is having things done to her rigging. She may worry "R's" in this year's run. Besides, Commodore Hollis Potter's Calypso is in beautiful trim to skim close to the fastest competition on the lakes in the famous "R" class. Other events open to all clubs of the Lake Michigan Yachting Associa tion and which will thus attract rep resentative fleets are: The Columbia Yacht Club's annual Michigan City Race, June 22. The L.

The Jackson Park Yacht Club's an nual Saugatuck Race, July 20. The White Lake (Michigan) Regatta, July 27 and the Black Lake Regatta, Aug ust 3. On August 15, 16, 17 the smart "Q" class fleet will try for the Vir ginia trophy. The C. Y. C. "Eagle" class fleet will compete in the Sir John Nutting races on the same date. This is always a brilliantly fought series. The Annual Regatta of the Columbia Yacht Club, open to all yachts, is sailed August 24. And the C. Y. C. races to Black Lake August 30 and September 1. So much for the Aug ust schedule. SEPTEMBER 1 will offer the Jack son Park Yacht Club's Michigan City Race. September 6, 7, 8 will set tle the year's supremacy in the tight "Q" class, a supremacy attested by the beautiful Lntz Trophy. We mention the Princess, last year's winner, Siren, Intruder and Chaperone. We prefer to let some other observer pick the winner for '29. Yacht racing closes handsomely with the C. Y. C.'s Fall Regatta, Septem ber 28. A Regatta in competition for the Sheldon Clark Trophy, the Fall Regatta is open to all classes and an nually musters an imposing fleet. From May until October, Lake Michigan is kind indeed. It offers 12,- 000 miles of clear, open water, hardly a reef or a shoal. It is lavish with brisk yachting weather, cool with a steady wind. A squall now and then to make sailing interesting. A calm now and then to try patience and re sourcefulness. From May until Oc tober. Then one day, Michigan is surly with winter, a drab yellow water, frothed now and then by dingy white- caps and sullen under a gray sky. On this day, yachtsmen gather in the club house to rehearse the brave doings pre dicted in the foregoing paragraphs. TMECMICAGOAN 13 Marching as to War Being an Interview with the Reverend M. P. Boynton, Crusader By FRANCIS C. COUGHLIN WE face each other across the Doctor's parlor. The Doctor, Reverend Melbourne P. Boynton, D.D., (Des Moines College, la., 1911) at ease on the davenport. I in the best chair. We are speaking of Pro hibition. (Also, I am to confirm cer tain rumors of censorship for the wet press) . It is no pretentious room, the Doc tor's parlor. It is a modest family liv ing room haphazardly furnished over two or three decades. A new daven port, miscellaneous chairs, color prints of uncertain origin. An old family dog — good old fellow! — dutifully un friendly toward a visitor but unable to resist the ecstasy of having his ears rubbed. A parlor, in short, like the parlors of a million homes in the corn states. A meagre setting, indeed, for a riding knight of the great Anti- Saloon League. And yet — We are speaking of Prohibition: "The difficulty comes," says the Doc tor, "when we complicate things." I have asked about the plans and strategy of the League. "The Anti-Saloon League," says the Doctor, "fights with facts. What are the facts? Well — get the impact of this: There used to be a complete hospital in Chicago given over to alcoholics, the old Bride well hospital. Now there is but a single ward in the County Hospital. That is one fact. And yet the wet press lies about it. Lies. Lies. "HT AKE another fact: Before Prohibition the lowest estimate on total expenditures for alcoholic liquors was set at $2,400,000,000. Two hundred million dollars a month for drink. And 85% of that expenditure went for beer. The fact today is that beer for beverage purpose has practical ly disappeared. Here is a great fact, unmentioned by the wet papers. Beer has practically disappeared. "Take home building as an index of social welfare: Why, in the United States alone there have been more new And with each quart of Scotch, Madame, we are giving away a pair of these beautiful silk stockinqs' 14 TI4ECWIGAG0AN homes built since prohibition than in all the world put together. Another incontrovertible fact." A reporter, however, is well used to incontrovert ible facts. He wonders, with a kind of mental twinge, about authorities. Another fact: "Roger Babson and Lloyd George agree that American prosperity after the war is due mainly to Prohibition." The main thing, of course, is to keep from getting compli cated. A reporter wonders about war debts, the fearful British casualty list, the universal post-war depression of 1921, American production. He won ders, too, about the absorption of booze millions, admittedly for motion pictures, radios, automobiles. Are these things productive of further wealth? These, however, are woefully complicated questions and lead far afield. Light beer and wine? Reverend Boynton snuffs battle afar and his eyes light up. So far the discussion has been temperate — debatable perhaps, but ami able enough. Here, at hand, is the enemy. "Light beer and wine is so much nonsense. The Anti-Saloon League does not object to beer and wine 'No, lady, this 'ere 'orse ain't like most of us. a god-mother" He's got a real princess for as such. It has never opposed, say, root beer and grape juice. What it fights is alcohol — " the knight leans forward, fixes his lance. "Again you have the influence of a wet press. If these wet newspapers keep up their assault on law and en courage defiance of law — then they must be made subject to the heavy hand of government control." "It is a logical step," admits the re porter. """pAKE the De King case: You 1 have a low- grade, bootlegging, Belgian home." (Belgian mysteriously becomes an epithet). "Officers enter in performance of their duties. The father greets them with a pistol in each hand. He is knocked down by an offi cer who doesn't want to kill him. In the ensuing scuffle, the woman is shot —an accident, you might say. The young son snatches up a revolver and shoots an officer. And the wet news papers paint that young criminal as a hero. That 12 -year-old boy has actu ally had a fund raised for him by the newspapers. He will, probably, be an outlaw for life — all because of the wet press." The crusader's face is calm, implac able, matter-of-fact: "We must," he says, "have protection against the wet newspapers — against their cartoons, editorial utterances, special writers. And we must have that protection through censorship. "Take the lies in The Tribune about wet states out west, articles by special correspondents. Lies. See how they continually term enforcement officers snoopers and murderers. Not the Anti-Saloon League, but public senti ment which it represents will insist on an abrogation of this type of low-grade journalism. Public sentiment will in sist on censorship and see that it's done." Here is strong stuff, indeed; it is an astounding challenge flung carelessly down in an Iowa parlor. The reporter writes it exactly, noting carefully that this is not the official expression of the Anti-Saloon League but a trumpet-call by one of its officers. WE ask a mild question : "Why, Doctor, does the press oppose Prohibition?" "The American press," answers the Doctor, "does not oppose prohibition as a whole. Seventy-six per cent of the American press is dry. It is the large TWECUICAGOAN 15 And, Hubby dear, I promise to go to the movies with you some day next week" papers which oppose the law. And they do so for two reasons. First, be cause they want liquor advertising. Second, because of personal reasons. Quote this carefully: l^early every outstanding opponent of Prohibition in America who is a force or who is ag' gressive is or was a drin\er." (The Doctor names names, but requests that they be held in confidence. They are.) "COR us, however," and here the 1 crusader speaks of the Anti-Sa loon League, "there remain two main lines of endeavor to be followed. We must see to it that Prohibition is con tinued as at present for 25 years so that the new generation will not know the taste of alcohol. And, second, we must teach constantly the three-fold objec tions to liquor, which are personal, eco nomic, and political. "The Weber-O'Grady Bill? We op pose it because, though legal enough, it is tainted with disloyalty. Illinois has never been disloyal to the Consti tution. She ought never repeal the state enforcement act. Indeed, Mr. Yellowley told me personally that he receives the fullest possible coopera tion from our police, the sheriff, and the present states attorney. Al Smith — and I admire his spunk — brought the Prohibition question squarely before the American people. Why, he didn't even carry Chicago!" The Doctor stands, a bulky, forceful man. His 62 years show but little upon him. His face is sallow, deep fighting wrinkles set about the mouth. His hair is iron gray, rather frivolously curly. His teeth are chisels as he smiles. Though raiding valiantly for the Lord as a soldier of Cromwell, he has yet caught something of the cour tesy of a cavalier opponent. He speaks of matters close to his heart. Of a son, late of Rangoon — a mission teacher one gathers — and now a graduate stu dent at Chicago. Of his youngest son, a freshman at the same university. And he has a good word for Chi cago. The city, he says, is the cleanest large city in the world— so far, at least, as open vice is concerned. "Why," the Doctor is proud to say it, "I haven't been approached by a street-walker now in over two years." A resplendent gold cross glistens midway down the Reverend's bosom. He wishes me a kind Good Morning.

They secured modest quarters over Vogelsang's restaurant at 181 West Madison street and before very long the group's influence was felt in the community, in the great fight against the Yerkes interests the Club had a leading part, and it early took more than cursory concern in educa tional matters. Out of this interest grew one of its strongest committees — the Education Committee. This group, headed now by Dr. Charles S. Bacon and which has had such distinguished members as the late Allen B. Pond, works with the school authorities on many important matters. Another committee, that on Local Transportation, is hard at it with such men as Clifton L. Bechtel, William H. Holley and Professor Hatton of North western leading in the struggle to untie The City Club By RICHARD R. SMITH that perennial bugabdb, the traction snarl. Then there are the Streets* and Public Safety, Public Finance, the Parks and Playgrounds and a dozen other committees busily engaged in lo cal and state questions. Every week, and sometimes oftener, the City Club members listen to a Forum luncheon speaker. These lec turers come in wide variety. One week it may be Roger Baldwin or Sherwood Eddy; the next, Frank G. Loesch or Albert Brunker, or some dis tinguished foreign visitor. Just before important elections the candidates are heard — they are all invited, in the case of the more important offices, and most of them appear. These candidates, as well as the other speakers, are subject to the time-hon ored custom of being questioned. The questions usually are questions, too; it is recorded that the former state's at torney rushed out of the Club on one occasion, leaving his white-rimmed glasses behind him, rather than face the barrage. BUT do not believe that the City Club is only a forum and commit tee meeting place. It is actually going athletic, in an approved way. To be sure it has had golf teams, usually rat ing Class C or a bit better, and its chess stars, of which more anon, are a galaxy. The Club offers billiards and pool, too. But now it is about to add another story to its six-story structure on Plymouth Court, and to introduce squash, handball and other games, with the accompanying roar of showers and the clang of locker doors. The Club seeks to establish no teams that will push onto the sport pages, but it is hoped that its members, who have cer tainly seemed to take to the idea of the exercise facilities, will now be better able to keep their waistlines down and 18 fUEGWICAGOAN "Well, if you really mean you'd do anything in the world for me, then cut off the ends of your moustache" their heads clear for the civic virtue fight. As for that other pastime, chess, its devotees have their room just off the heavily curtained and silent lounge, a truly restful and beautiful room de signed by the architects of the build ing, the late Allen B. Pond and his brother, Irving K. Pond, whose names are highly regarded in the Club. In this lounge, one may siesta after lunch eon, or prowl through The London Graphic, Punch, The 'Hation, Life, and of course The Chicagoan. But if the lounge is a place of whispers, except when "Peter" calls some member to the telephone, the Chess Room is in deed Tut's inner chamber. I have of ten tried, in a hurry and in search of some committee chairman who might talk for publication, to brave him at his chess, but always my courage oozes away before I get within five soft steps of the gentleman. ON the noons when there is no forum speaker, the members do the debating — always impromptu, and across the table. Some of them prefer these informal discussions to the more polished ones of the regulation orators. For the City Club contains within its own membership some choice fonts of ready wit and wisdom, the known and the unknown, and free speech prevails. There are, for example, the Long Table and the Round Table, with their more or less regular occupants. The Round Table is sedate, with most of its habitues men of ample girth and stand ing in the community. But the Long Table has among its patrons a few rather near-Bolshevik diners and does not hesitate to disapprove a bishop or president if occasion demands. I am inclined to think the Round Table smiles a bit at the Long Table, but the latter's regulars eat their celery soup and raw apples and continue to toss their bon mots across the board. The membership has one common cause — civic consciousness. Its per sonalities, however, are varied, with at- torneys-at-law in the lead numerically, and with a fair sprinkling of presidents and secretaries of corporations, educa tors, newspaper and advertising men (it is a great haven for editorial writers), some bankers and insurance men. The Club has several judges active in its life, to say nothing of half a dozen aldermen, members of the legislature and even a cabinet member. He is Robert P. Lamont, Mr. Hoover's Sec retary of Commerce. In Taft's day, his Secretary of the Interior was Walter T. Fisher, who has long been one of the Club's leading members, and is a former president. His sons, Walter L. and Arthur Fisher, are likewise active and valued members of the Club. Other names, well known in city and nation, may be selected at random. Lorado Taft is a charter member, and an enthusiastic one; George E. Cole is another, and incidentally the second oldest man in the Club at 84; there is Nathan William MacChesney, and Henry P. Chandler, Victor Elting, James Hamilton Lewis, Augustus Pea- body, Judges Jarecki and McGoorty, and many more. S. J. Duncan-Clark of The Evening Post has just been in augurated president to succeed E. T. Gundlach. Noble W. Lee enters his fourth term as the Club's secretary. THE present Clubhouse was built in 1911 and has been adequate for the Club needs to date. In fact the dignified building just off Jackson street on Plymouth Court (the Stand ard Club is across from us) is a real civic center. Such groups as the Bureau of Public Efficiency, the Chi cago Forum, the Principals' Club, the Engineers' Club and the Chemists' Club have their offices in the building and it is widely used as a meeting and dining place for various other organi zations, chiefly of a civic or social service character. Once a year the City Club complete ly relaxes and produces its annual Political Scandals. This event is held on New Year's Eve and the current figures of city, state and national life appear in parody and burlesque. The last Scandals featured such headliners as Mabel Willebrandt, Joe Saltis, the Two Black Crows (Tim and Bob) and others, not forgetting a fine takeoff on the Club itself in Forum assembled. There it stands, as it was and is and will be — The City Club. Perhaps given a little to resolutions in bulk; per haps a trifle academic in the process of solving public woes. But from its ex ample have sprung other city clubs in many of the larger cities of the coun try, and all of them look somewhat to the parent club for an example and a course to steer.

HOUBIGANT P A K I S 20 TI4ECNICAGOAN CI4ICAGOAN/ YOU can always spot The Chi- CAGOAn's dramatic critic at a premiere. Other critics may lose them selves back among the tittering throng, but in the middle of the front row sits our Professor — adjectives chase them selves around the mind — imperturbed, austere, ageless, ^ibraltaresque, immu table. There he is, flanked on one side by a slender man with iron gray hair; keen boyish face; eager, searching eyes, and on the other by a charming girl with a saucy nose and a warm wealth of chestnut hair. There may be an other man in the party. Were the group pictured in Vanity Fair or S\etch, the caption would read "Mr. and Mrs. Ashton Stevens, Mr. Charles Collins and friend." The curtain is up. While his col league is busily taking notes with high nervous energy, Mr. Collins, hands on chin, broods like Nemesis, his face a frozen cameo of a faun. The ectoplasm of the drama oozes into his conscious ness. His mind, without visible effort, is concocting a mot to introduce, sum up and dismiss the play and the actors, — some mordant and spicy turn of phrase. I quote one of his latest, "Richard Bennett is the male Mae West." Charlie knows his theatre. No one is more steeped in its lore. And he knows his history. Such caches of knowledge are indispensable in a day when numerous moss-covered plays are being disinterred and no historical char acter is immune from being turned into a tenor. He inwardly revels at the Stratford-on-Avon Shakespeareans, the D'Oyley Carte Gilbert-and-Sullivan- ians, "The Beggars' Opera," "And So to Bed" and "White Lilacs,' but the thrill is only detectable by a discreet dilation of the nostrils. Barring re vivals, he never sees a play twice. He loves 'em and leaves 'em. The obvious success is ratsbane to his soul. There was no magic in such shows as "Sally" or "Lightning," which ran so long that its star, Frank Bacon, died of old age while playing it. But he fights for the good thing, especially if obscure. No critic has predicted more futures for young American actresses. At the present writing several have fulfilled the prophesies. IT was a loss to dramatic criticism in Chicago when he left the Chicago Charles Collins y WILLIAM C . B O Y D E N , JR. Charles Collins Evening Post, where he spent ten good years of his life, achieving during the period the signal honor of being barred for a time from the theatres of the Messrs. Shubert. Theatregoers are not today as well served as in the era of Stevens, Hammond, Hall and Collins, of whom only Stevens remains to em bellish the daily press. It seems a re flection on the sagacity of Chicago edi tors that Collins is not forcibly put back in harness. But the newspapers' loss has been a gain for this magazine. But not only in play-house carbon dioxide does our dramatic critic live and have his being. The bite of autumn oxygen finds him the happy possessor in fee tail of a small expanse of wood- covered concrete at Stagg Field or the Dyche Stadium. With powerful bi noculars he follows foot-ball play by play and can inform the lay mind that Bimpus, the Maroon left-guard, has been cleverly maneuvered out of the play, or that Snitch, the Illinois half back, started three and one-half sec onds before the ball was snapped. The fact that the University of Chi cago and the class of 1903 point with pride and number him among their il lustrious alumni may give reason to some of his foot-ball prejudices, but cannot wholly account for his whole hearted passion for the game. He has dragged this biographer to see Tilden Tech play DePaul for the high-school championship, and even braves the Blue Laws of his ancestors by profan ing the Sabbath when the Bears are scheduled. It is an open secret in the inner councils of the Big Ten that he is preparing a set of his own foot-ball rules to be known as the Collins Code. If the code becomes not as omnipotent in the realm of foot-ball as Napoleon's was in the realm of France, it will only be because of jealousy and intrigue on the part of the coaches. WITH insistence I am urging my subject to name me his literary executor. Obviously and naturally it would be in order to offer to an ex pectant world his numerous essays, short stories and novels, but there is a further thought behind my importu nity. The files of the Cliff Dwellers and the Tavern should be searched and therefrom extracted all letters written by Mr. Collins in his official capacity as secretary of those organizations. What a book they would make! Care fully arranged, adequately indexed and copiously annotated, these terse letters — miniature masterpieces of savoir- faire, aplomb and urbanity — would serve as a bible for future club secre taries. No more would men shun this onerous office nor unfortunate incum bents agonize in vain struggles to suave ly acknowledge a gift or to expel an offender with such grace that the cul prit feels honored by the club's action. There are those who regard C. Col lins as a strong, silent man, difficult to approach socially. While it is not un fair to say that he has his moments of reticence, still — .

In the shrewd game of stocks, man may venture if he will but woman is not permitted to indulge her folly. Yet now and then a woman evades the rule. It was an evader who stood before Mrs. Mable Reinecke before she sur rendered her collectorship to Mrs. Myrtle Tanner Blacklege. The evader, a mild little school teacher, explained that she was worried about possible government claims against her salary. Mrs. Reinecke, knowing something of school teacher's salaries, smiled as surance. She accepted a proffered bank statement casually. In it she noted entries of $5,000, $8,000, $10,000, one of $150,000. "My dear woman," re monstrated the collector, "I thought you said you were a school teacher!" The middle aged visitor was very modest. "I am," she said, "I am a school teacher. But I put my money into stocks and I don't know how it happened — only the bank tells me I've made a half million dollars." Queries SPEAKING generally, we are pleased to answer telephone ques tions in matters recondite to the Town. Generally, too, our score measured in off-hand answers is high. Yet there are exceptions. We print two queries as they came in within a few minutes of each other. One we flunked dismally. It's the kind of thing a questionee must put up with. (1) An elaborately liveried chauf feur sits at rigid attention in a Ford town car, last seen at Chicago Avenue and Clark Street. Do we know, please? Mrs. Lawrence Whiting. (2) There is in this Town a Chi nese laundry delightfully named for the proprietor. His name is Sing Wo. Where is the laundry? We are with out inkling. Waves THE rise in lake level has its aes thetic as well as its legal reper cussion. A gentleman of our acquain tance is fond of waves. He likes to sit comfortably at his window and watch Michigan heave and thresh when whitecaps storm in from the eastern skyline. Until recently he has found the best waves north near Evanston, consequently he has had his apartment north. Now, due to the rising lake level and park developments out south, our wave lover has changed residence. He announces, as a connoisseur of waves, that the best display now avail able may be comfortably, even luxuri ously, seen from the Shoreland Hotel, Fifty-fifth street at the lake. Assurance FROM a convivial sector of the near north side we have had the follow ing story of extreme punctuality. A couple not too long married in vited a bachelor friend in for Sunday tea. The bachelor assured them of his forthcoming presence. Early Saturday evening the bidden guest telephoned to verify time and place. He was, he said, dogmatic in the matter of keeping appointments. Might he assure his friends he would be on time? He would. Three hours later he telephoned to repeat the assurance. And one hour after that he confirmed the call. He was travelling, he said, somewhere out north. But he would be to tea pre cisely. He called twice more before the couple refused to answer the 'phone. The punctual guest was not daunted. At 5 o'clock Sunday morning, the guest appeared. Firmly but amiably he paid off the taxi driver. Very care fully he took the steps one by one. Meticulously he rang the bell. Blandly he confronted his prospective hosts at tea. "I have had some fears," he ex plained, "of being late to tea. Being late is a fearful nuisance. I have de cided, therefore, to make very sure. Do you, Old Fellow, have a spare bed? Thank you." Nurses A NURSE on hospital duty wears as part of her uniform an apron, a starched collar (1), starched cuffs (2) and often a starched cap (1) as well. It was proposed at the recent congress of The Catholic Hospital Association at the Stevens Hotel, to supplant the traditional costume with a simple dress, unstarched and devoid of nursely frills. Stiff hospital garments cost the wearer something like $30 a year, allowing three years wear for a complete outfit. The new garment should do hand somely over the same period for one- third the money. In the matter of laundry alone, a hospital staffed with 275 nurses must spend $5,400 a year for cuff and collar renovations. Dele gates pondered these facts. Delegates did not ponder a second proposal, however. It was pointed out that nurses's dresses retained their tra ditional floor clearance of eight inches. Modern skirts clear from 12 to 16 inches and a revision was asked to con form to contemporary trends in style. A new, proper height was determined. It is exactly eight inches. Hat MRS. BERTHA BAUR, in her role of finance chairman, was ad dressing the convention of the Illinois Republican Women's Club. Her theme was money — raising money. Suddenly 24 TWEGWIGAGOAN Mrs. William S. Severin rose to her feet. "I am the oldest Republican woman in the city," she staunchly pro claimed, "and in my day we had one way of raising money that never failed." In illustration, Mrs. Severin plucked her hat from her head and deposited therein money from her own pocket- book. The swift action took conven tion members by storm and to the sound of lusty cheering, Mrs. Severin's hat went the rounds of the meeting. It contained $156 in cash when it came back to its owner. Mrs. Severin is a veteran of the city's club works. Among other things she is the founder-president of the Illinois Women's Athletic Club. Great Houses TRAVELERS along the north shore, through a conscious spon sorship of the illusion, may witness the great houses of suburban estates pass in a kind of review as their own cars edge north along the lake. Great Houses, too, have their minor as well as major attributes of greatness; there are exceptions even in a galaxy of the exceptional. The Lake Forest home of the Wil liam McCormick Blairs is rambling and Colonial after the plans of Architects David Adler and Robert Work. House and estate boast additional distinctions. First perhaps is the entrance hall, a hall panelled in magnificent pine. Parallel columns, panelled in squares of pine, are arranged to present rare Currier and Ives prints, eight pictures in two series, all concerned with early Chi cago. These prints, framed in plain black, fit into square depressions of the pine itself. Entrance walls display other prints, Civil and Revolutionary War for the most part, and the gal- leried walls themselves reach up to form a series of arches through which the visitor glimpses the main body of the great house. The Blair library is in itself a dis tinction. It is an oblong room. A cir cular depression in the ample ceiling gives the motif for decorative arrange ment. Directly underneath this ceiling circle a specially woven rug duplicates a similar area on the floor. The rug itself woven with a sprinkling of stars. On it stands a circular table, and above the table a circular light supported by three golden chains from three golden arrows. All rotundities thus described are arranged as concentric circles. The great house, itself, stands on a bluff overlooking the lake. Its lawns offer several pergolas. The Scott Estate offers a great house for review. Here live the John and Robert Scotts, two families, and Mrs. Robert Cluett, grandmother to the chil dren of both branches. The Scott grounds are magnificent, highly dis tinctive. Although on a bluff which slopes smoothly down to meet the lake and beach, the estate offers its own swimming pool. It offers, too, a laby rinth of growing hedge and three sunken gardens. In these last, each flower bordered path is so arranged as to bring the stroller to the foot of a garden statue. The Donald and Ed ward Welles families occupy adjoining estates; their great houses are in the English manner. IN discussing north shore estates one cannot ignore the Villa Turicum be longing to Mrs. Edith Rockefeller Mc Cormick. She, too, has her home perched on a Lake Forest bluff. In this instance the bluff has been made into a series of descending terraces on each one of which is a fountain. When the fountains are playing, which happens not oftener than a few times each year, the water from the topmost falls into the fountain on the terrace immediately below, and this into the next and so on all the way to the foot of the bluff. Here is located the modest bath-house in which costume changes may be made. Also descending the face of the bluff is a series of stairs, very broad, and made of stone. The grounds proper contain a huge lotus pool, the flowers pink, yellow, blue, purple and white. Here, too, is a close hedge, this one of laurel, grow ing very tall. The pool and hedge are part of a balanced formal garden which holds also a number of pieces of statu ary, placed around the inside of the hedge, and looking as though they had been imported from the classical ruins of Italy. Credit for landscaping these grounds is given to Mr. Edwin Krenn. It is not generally known that he was originally brought here for just that purpose, but he has done no less a fine piece of work there on that account. The Villa Turicum is being made ready to receive the annual Lake Forest Garden show. Mrs. McCormick has donated her home for that purpose for a number of years. Of interest also to the inveterate home lover will be two rooms in Lake Shore Drive apartments. One of these, a dining room, belongs to Mrs. Charles Harrington Chadwick. The room itself is long and narrow. The wall at one end is rounded into a shape like that of a bay window. Instead of windows, however, these curving walls are cov ered with mirrors whose edges are deli cately and beautifully engraved in a formal pattern. The second, a bathroom, is found in the apartment of Mrs. Ogden McClurg. Leading off of the bedroom, this cham ber has two walls covered with cup boards of pale ivory and green. The third side flaunts several full length mirrors; and the fourth — one sees at first what looks like a beautifully painted marine subject. Look closer, however, and one discovers that the marine is not painted at all; it is the lake itself which one sees through win dows that reach all the way to the ceiling. Game A GENTLEMAN from Winnetka whose name must, alas, be sup pressed, speaks enthusiastically of his recent return journey from a land of scotch and rye. The law-abiding habits of a lifetime overcome by a desire to play the national game of hide the bottle and let the prohibition agent seek, Mr. Winnetka stored a quart in one of his bags. That much was great sport, but as he neared the United States border the gentleman's pleasure began to ebb. Indeed his liking for the game diminished to such an extent that he resolved to be in a position to with draw at a moment's notice. Cautiously he edged his incriminating bag into the aisle. A lurch of the train aided by an expert place kick, sent it in the direction of the next section ahead. TI4E CU I GAGOAN 25 Mr. W. was avid with the landscape when a commanding personage stepped up to him. "Is that your bag?" demanded the personage, pointing. Mr. W. wet his lips, coughed, shook his head. "D'you know whose it is?" Mr. W. shook his head. "All right," the big man said, and picked up the bag. At the next station he carried it off the train. After Mr. W. had regained his com posure he began to be seriously an noyed. It was bad enough to have been swindled, but the loss of a quart of good liquor was a matter which re quired action. Going into another car he sought and found an abandoned suitcase. The man in the nearest seat was deeply absorbed in contemplation of the landscape. Mr. W. halted in front of him. "Is that your bag?" he demanded. The man wet his lips, coughed, shook his head. "D'you know whose it is?" The man shook his head. "All right," said Mr. W., and walked away with the bag. Opened in Winnetka the bag yielded not one but two bottles of Scotch. Legend | HE Town's shopping street finds * its predominant pace a breathless hurry. But State Street has been neither too busy nor too hurried to neglect the legend of Mrs. Anna Mack. Executives and cash girls, depart ment heads and porters know Mrs. Mack if only to bid her goodmorning. Anna Mack could, if she cared to, sing "Nineteen Years I've Been on State Street" to the Barcarolle tune — and dance to it also. For Mrs. Mack came to State Street from the stage after having been ten years in vaudeville. At the request of her family she left off grease paint for advertising. For six years she was as sistant to the advertising manager of the Fair; for 13 more she has been in the advertising department at Man- del's. Thirteen years ago Leon Man- del, now general manager of the store, was a youngster who amused himself by hanging around Mrs. Mack's office. A testimonial of her widespread pop ularity is the ivory fitted traveling bag which was presented to her by the en tire office staff on the tenth anniversary Introducing Hales A new shop at 516-518 North Michigan Avenue Devoted to an exclusive presentation of SIMMONS BEDS, BEDDING and BOUDOIR ACCESSORIES CHICAGO c^> NEW YORK cw.

Other testimonials are the letters from such people as Ethel Barrymore, Sophie Tucker, Julian Eltinge, Isabel Patricola, George Arliss and others, good friends who place her name first on their Chi cago visiting list. Every summer Mrs. Mack makes a journey to Lookout Mountain and the cabin of Buffalo Bill, her own great- uncle on her father's side of the family. She remembers this almost mythical hero as a frequent visitor to her child hood home. Besides her regular job, Mrs. Mack has work for an assortment of women's clubs (she's publicity chairman for the Illinois Club for Catholic Women, an active member of the Chicago and Northwestern Women's Club and on the board of directors of the Auxiliary of the Northern Hospital) with which to occupy her evenings. Once, when she was running for a club office, The Fair band appeared on State Street at noon one day; mounted high on the bandwagon was a poster bearing this slogan in flaming letters: "Vote for Anna Mack — the friend of State Street." Which is exactly what she is. Boob THIS is positively the latest racket story. It comes unquestioned from the boys who always have theirs late and confidentially. It's usually a New York setting, Park Avenue, in fact. It's like this. A skittish young matron finds her husband increasingly absorbed in busi' ness matters. She begins, innocently enough, to attend tea, dance, and the atre with a wealthy young bachelor, a former admirer. One day she admires a fur coat, just a passing fancy for a beautiful gar ment. The bachelor notes her admira- tion. The very next day he presents her with a pawn ticket which he has found, he says, and advises her to have her husband pay the ridiculously small loan due and redeem whatever may be in pawn. A solid, unromantic man, the husband objects at first but he is eventually persuaded. He takes the ticket, promises to visit the pawn broker and adventure in redemption sight unseen. Infinitely to the bachelor's chagrin, the pledge is discovered to be a cheap fur coat. Husband and innocent wife laugh over the adventure. A week later, bachelor and wife are dining in a most discreet restaurant. A couple enter and take their table in a far corner. Nevertheless, the wife identifies her husband. She does not know his darling companion, a dark, stately girl wearing a beautiful wrap of costly fur. The fur — ah — why the fur is the very same garment the young wife so admired. The dark girl is the husband's stenographer. A coinci dence, indeed. The bachelor does not speak. He is speechless. As we have said, this is positively the latest racket. It was first written from an actual news story in Chicago by Mr. Wm. Hay Williamson, a Tribune reporter. It was sold to a Munsey magazine as the latest thing in rackets. Title, "The Boob." Date, 1910. Ofiera STUDENT opera — to revise an ape thegm — makes strange stage fel lows. It's no good guessing what art' ists of the tuneful and frolicsome Blackfriar's show, Mr. Cinderella, were on campus before their venture on stage. Talent for, and disposition to' ward musical comedy appear unac countably. Wrestlers, for instance, discover themselves to be admirable dramatic material. Miss Molly Walsh, demure though a trifle strenuous, on stage, is off stage, Mr. Arch Winning, a Junior in academic rank, wrestling captain for 1929-30 in collegiate honor. Appropriately enough, Miss Walsh was wooed by Smack O'Regan. Mr. O 'Regan is otherwise Mr. Robert Tankersley. Also a wrestler. Abner Wolff, pro-tem movie mag nate, rose to his high position out of a background of track and football. On athletic squads, however, he is Alvin Rei witch. TI4EGUIGAG0AN Miss Polly Parker acquired her dulcet stage voice — believe it or not — as a cheer leader called Lawrence Smith. Also Miss Parker was a track man and will be again now that the show is over. Norman Jorgenson, a secretary in grease paint, is a footballer on Fall afternoons. So it goes. One never can tell. Indeed, one of the authors, George D. Mills, is an alumnus and a lawyer. The other, William V. Morgenstern, has been alternately a newspaper man, a lawyer, a newspaper man again; he is now in charge of University pub licity. Thus the ingredients of a notable Blackfriar show. ax? D ance A GENTLEMAN attender of taxi dances at our mandate has re turned, dutiful fellow, with statistics. He visited The Chicago Dancing Academy, Child's Restaurant Building (6th floor) at State and Van Buren streets. He reports a large evening on that rectangular dance floor, dim be neath cheap pink and orange Japanese lanterns arranged in parallel rows. A taxi dancer, he reports, is sure to acquire an erect position of body, a graceful carriage, a proper walk, muscular development, self-reliance, an ear for music, politeness and a capacity for pleasing public appearance — all these in accordance with the Ten Facts of Dancing as listed on the wall of the gent's room. A young lady instructress in taxi dancing — she dances with any asker who presents the required dime ticket — should turn in 160 dances by 3 a. m. which is Saturday night closing. Dances are accurately timed at one minute the dance; the instructress gets half of the ten cent fee as her portion. All in all she earns eight dollars an evening, unfortunately only of a Sat urday evening. Working steadily and counting good days and bad together, she should average $35 a week. She is, incidentally, with rare exceptions a "good" girl. The gentleman reports 150 girl in structors. On the night of his visit, he estimates 350 young gentlemen anxious to become conversant with the Ten Facts of Dancing. He reports an orchestra at its best with "St. Louis Blues." A Greek manager.

J am eg an THE scene is the Chicago Theatre The time, a recent Tuesday. The occasion, an actors benefit performance. For one reason or another Jackie Osterman, a local master of ceremonies, was unwilling to release his public from their demands upon his talent. Having found himself on stage he stayed on. That the curtain rose on a band act made no difference to Ostef man; he moved his chair conveniently in front of the band and told stories anyway. Exasperated, backstage powers drew curtain momentarily and removed the entertainer. Naturally, Osterman was displeased. He urged his remonstrance in extremely profuse terms. At which a grave and dignified actor awaiting his turn before the footlights flushed in shame to hear scandalous language, took his young woman com panion firmly by the arm, Jed her from the theatre. The purist thus laudably protestant was Richard Bennett. Aquarium ALTHOUGH the building's exterior i is practically complete, the John G. Shedd Aquarium will defer open ing for a twelve month or more while the interior is brought to exacting com pletion. After that, tanks must be in stalled and the careful process of "cur ing" the concrete walls to remove every trace of lime remains as the final step in the completion of the fish building. Five kinds of water are to be sup plied the immense display tanks. Heated and chilled salt water, heated and chilled fresh water, and plain fluid out of Lake Michigan with no frills about it. To complicate aquarium ad ministration further, heated and chilled waters must be supplied at varying thermometer readings. Moreover, ex hibition rooms must preserve tempera tures suitable to human visitors as well as to marine inhabitants. All in all, about 1,000 species of | fish will be shown, a selection made from perhaps five times as many varie ties. There are roughly 500 species in American coastal waters alone. The largest fish proposed as a perma nent guest of the aquarium is the jew fish. Individual jew fish have been known to weigh 600 pounds. It is un likely however that the Shedd speci men will exceed 350 pounds. The smallest fish will be the Florida mosquito fish. A full grown represen tative is a sprightly fellow one-half inch long and is a fresh water dweller. The jew fish, also a Floridan, is a sea fish. Aquariums cannot receive their col lections before everything is in perfect order for reception. This, too, is a source of delay for much collecting must be carried on by special crews sent out by the Shedd authorities them selves. Fishermen in various waters will receive instructions to collect other rare species. Thus eventually, all tanks will get themselvs inhabited. Already the Pullman company is at work on a special aquarium car de signed to transport living fish over long distances. It will be equipped with salt and fresh tanks, air and water pumps, quarters for attendants and all the comforts, so to speak, of an ocean wave. Team THE UNIVERSITY OF CHI CAGO has a tennis team. Its name is George Lott. As the team and the U. S. L. T.

It is told that, weary of the garrulity of Cliff Dwelling chess players, he mas tered the game by one night's study of the encyclopedia, challenged the club champion, worsted him, and never played again. It was too easy. At tempting to research stud-poker, he was less successful, quitting with disgust and the unshakable conviction that it is a game of chance. What a doctor he would have made! To you and me a cold in the head is a nasty, irritating snuffle; to Collins it is a predatory mi crobe, to be identified, tracked to its lair, scientifically banished.

Persons, on the contrary, rarely disturb the placid equipoise of a very kindly nature, un- blushingly romantic, unfailingly cour teous. He turns from a brilliant actress to entertain a school-girl. He is sanc tuary for bores. His taste instinctively seeks the sweeter things of the world. The sordid makes little appeal.

"The Slk G E High-Water Mark at the Goodman Theater By CHARLES COLLINS PARIS LONDON 670 N. Michigan Avenue Chicago THE symbol ism of "The Golem," now im pressively on view for the first time in E n g 1 i s h at the Goodman Theater, is complex, but the significance of the event itself, the message of this fine achievement in imaginative stage direction and stirring performance, is as clear as a bell-note from a tower. The Goodman organi' nation has ended its growing pains and is adult. There is no need for a tol erant smile when you call this our Civic Repertory Company. "The Golem" may be a high point from which there will be recessions, but it places the Goodman for the run of the play on a level with the Theater Guild of New York. This masterpiece of the Yiddish stage, a drama of world-fame although new to non- Semitic audiences, is be ing given in a manner that satisfies the most exacting standards of interpreta tion. The production has professional grasp and "art theater" invention. So when you attend, it will be well to check your local inferiority complex in the coat-room. It is likely that you are fortunate in being able to see a Chi cago evocation of "The Golem." If you should happen to find this Jewish legend-drama in New York, Paris or Moscow, you might easily see an in ferior staging. The play is steeped in Hebraic folk lore, tradition and philosophy. Oswald Spengler would call it the drama of a Culture — an expression of the "Magian soul." The points that you will select for criticism — the slow, al most ritualistic pace of the perform' ance and the frequently metaphysical trend of the dialogue — are native to the work. You may prefer a "Golem" that is a frank melodramatic treatment of the myth of the "Frankenstein mons' ter," but in that case you would not be getting the true quality of the drama as racial art. "The Golem" was not written to frighten children; it is a play for philosophers. Over it broods the magic of the Kabbala, shadowy Talmudic dissertations on the occult forces of good and evil, the prophecies of a Messiah, the history of the Dis persal. "The Golem" is the Jewish mind in characteristic fantasy. THE Goodman was fortunate in sc curing David Itkin, formerly of the Habima Theater of Moscow, to di rect its "Golem." He has racemarked it; he has brought out a performance that is thoroughly felt and understood by the players in the terms of the play's heredity. He has, moreover, caused marked improvement in the Goodman's technique of managing crowd-scenes. Harry Mervis, as the Rabbi, and Michel Barroy, as the giant figure of clay incarnated, dominate the produc tion. These are difficult roles, admir ably played. You can believe in the wizardry practiced by this intense priest; and you cannot hope to find a bigger, better or more Calibanesque Golem. Black-Belt Melodrama THERE has been no high-brow reclame for "Harlem," the negro play at the Majestic. The white aes thetes of Afrikander tendencies have not taken it to their quivering breasts with shrill outcries of delight. There fore one may approach this black-belt opus, which is a blend of "Lulu Belle" and gangster melodrama, without self- consciousness. You don't have to like it, in order to keep up your position in art colony circles, if you don't feel that way. I found "Harlem" vivid, alive and arousing. I enjoyed it in spite of the fact that the first-night performance was given as if with megaphones. It lacks the "folk" value of "Porgy," which dealt in an authoritative way with the quaintness and queerness of a specialized type of tide-water negro. As drama, it is commodity rather than art. But it comes close to the life of the negro as we know him in his city slums. In a flamboyant, highly theatri calized manner it is characteristic of the Afro- American underworld, whether in the tenements of New York or the shacks and rookeries of our own South Side. TI4EGMIGAG0AN 31 The stage'director who permitted or ordered these over-eager players to shout their dialogue like cheer leaders should be spoken to bitterly. There is no reason why a play by, of and about negroes should be interpreted in the spirit of pandemonium. Noise is not a mark of the race; they are, in general, a quiet people. . . . But this same stage director must be applauded for his treatment of the dancing at the "rent party," which forms the back ground for the carnality and gumplay of the plot. This is a wild and be wildering orgy that might have come out of the pages of "The Magic Island." It is a danse Congo to New York music, and there is voodoo madness in its rhythms. Its details are repellant, but its mass effect is fascinating. The cast is big enough for a pageant; the acting, for the most part, needs emotional control. But no player of any complexion could be more exactly right than Andrew Bishop, calm, burly and menacing as the big shot banker of "Numbers" gambling. William F. Walker also wins honorable mention as Officer Sam, the cake-walk cop who takes a gleaming joy in his work and communicates it to the audience. Doc tor Voodeo, the charm-merchant, is a character "bit" that clings to the mem ory. The Lulu Belle of the proceed ings, a predestined young trollop, is represented with picturesque vehem ence by Vivian Baber. "Harlem" is a novelty in negro drama for several reasons. For one thing, it contains no "spirituals." For another, it is almost devoid of dark- brown groans about the sad destiny of colored-folks. Innocents in Hollywood XA/ALLACE FORD, so easily and " ? happily remembered from "Pigs" and "Broadway," is himself in "The Nut Farm," which brings him to stellar rank at the Cort. In other words, he is droll with floundering boy ish intensity, whimsical with juvenile wisecracks, and comical with half- baked manhood. Which may be taken as an announcement that he is extreme ly diverting. But the play, in spite of the unique quality of its star and the devoted ef forts of a good cast, is one of those things that are so frequently staged for no apparent reason except to prove that the author is not a dramatist.

He tries to pre vent them from falling into the hands of a film slicker.

By trans forming the thing into a burlesque and selling it for important money, he proves that "The Nut Farm" has a plot. The Old Pefifier SOMEBODY has to say it, so here goes — "Boom Boom" does not faw down. It skitters over thin ice quite bravely at the Apollo, which used to be the Olympic. It is brisk, bright and band-boxy; it contains Frank Mc- Intyre, fat as Falstaff and twice as funny; Jeannette MacDonald, whose cool alertness harmonizes with her role of a demi-vierge; and cohorts of gay dancing damsels, drilled in ingenious formations and contortions. "Boom Boom" is based upon an idea that is considered funny in Paris. An elderly rake marries a jeune fille under compulsion; the little lady refuses to grant the conjugal right; and her step son falls in love with her. The hus band steps out with a new flame; the virgin wife grants a rendezvous to an eager gigolo; and the two couples come to cross purposes in a roadhouse, where the love-sick son impales himself upon the horns of the dilemma. All of which proves again that the sense of humor is geographical. Ice-C ream Coh an GEORGE COHAN'S "Billie," at the Erlanger, is so sweet that it almost twitters. In transforming his old play, "Broadway Jones," into this musical comedy, Mr. Cohan forgot to use the lemon-squeezer with which he has flavored his recent compositions, and wrote in a style prevalent in 1900. The result is, in its neo-Victorianism, practically a novelty. It's a show to which any flaming child can safely take its mamma. Polly Walker, in the leading role, is well-practised in ingenuous charms. Joseph Wagstaffe, who fills the shoes of dashing old Broadway Jones, is a gentle youth who has seen Eddie Dowling once too often. My favor ites in the excellent company are Carl Francis, who gets a new twist into a "straight" part, and June O'Dea, who dances in and out, in a maid's cos tume, as if headed toward a reputation.

Cattle at pasture in infinite leisure on new pas ture land not yet entirely green. A highway sign announcing Joliet, some how conveying the idea that Joliet is a tremendous, important city. Chicago, lost in the indefinite reach of prairie to the north and east. ROUTE 4A drops from the prairie into a stream valley. Insensibly the pace of driving slows. Out of the city and the cold blue air of the lake region, the country is warmer, softer, more fecund. Whole fields of dande lions are spangled yellow off the gray road. Red haw trees bloom in every pasture, the blossoms dingy white. Each farm orchard is radiant, the pink white of apple, the candle-flame white of cherry and pear blossoms. Culverts, and hollows of scanty wood in the corn lands, are ablaze with red bud. Wher ever fallen leaves have lain over the winter to afford a warm mulch, sweet william is a faint blue fringe to the gray earth. The slow earthy life of the plains country displays itself: A man plough ing, a distant farm wife busy with her washing, a little girl staring from a school lot fence, a nun motionless over her rake in a convent vegetable patch, a ramshackle Ford tricked out in cheap fishing poles, a country dog investigat ing a woodchuck burrow. Far to the right as we win west and south, the Drainage Canal is hidden to the near side of an immense mole bor row. The old Illinois Michigan Canal is a placid green stream undisturbed by its brawling neighbor. Nearing Joliet, the Drainage Canal uproots limestone out of the rich soil. Lockport, indeed, is built of limestone and on limestone hills. Joliet is flecked gray with the stuff, gray against red, burned brick, and occasional frame structures. To the West, across the Canal valley, Stateville is a vast concrete rectangle, a cluster of round towers, which are cell houses, within. Closer, to the left, are prison quarries, dreary pits in the hopeful earth, and surrounded by a high board fence, spaced evenly with guard houses. And soon enough the gray castle of Old Prison, sleepy in the sun. Then abruptly Joliet, after a fan' fare of steel mills, rough black, and tipped with idle flame. "Anywhere within squawking distance, Usher." A T Joliet we begin the descent of the Illinois Valley proper. A vast TWECUICAGOAN 35 trough in the level prairie, miles across and blooming in the promise of Spring. Over the old Illinois Michigan Canal, dreaming of the hurried decades duf ing which the Illinois country was set tled and built. Every town has its sol dier's monument to bearded lads off in '61. Yet take the smoke from the sky, replenish the gullies with woodland, roughen the prairie a bit and multiply the ever-present flowering red haw, and the valley is not unlike the gate of empire first seen by the gallant La Salle and his cold lieutenant, Tonty of the Iron Hand. South of Joliet, where the swift state road is stamped over an easy-going plain, one comes suddenly on the old canal again. A fleeting glimpse of time-green locks across the narrow channel, colors like a Dutch painting. A SCATTERING of towns and vil- > lages. One is conscious of a change subtle in topography; limestone is yielding place to sandstone. At Ot tawa, a slow and close-built city, only the soldier's monument is of limestone. That monument should mention Gen eral W. H. L. Wallace, of Ottawa, killed at Shiloh. Wallace it was who is described as unperturbed at Fort Donelson," "like a farmer," said one of his staff officers, "one leg thrown carelessly over the saddle, as uncon cerned as if he had ridden from a ploughing rather than a battle field." At Ottawa, the car noses south across the Illinois. A 300-yard river, turbulent with Spring. Then past deep sand quarries. Sandstone cliffs grow bolder. We are entering the Starved Rock country. The road, which has been a level, straight prairie road until now, bends to meet sudden gullies worn deep in the hills. It turns as a road in moun tain country. Below is the first can yon of the state park, a 90 foot drop loud with dripping water. Pine trees, always incongruous on the prairie, cling against the red stone. One curve is newly patched; a freshet has torn out a great crescent of cement and pitched it far down toward the river. For a time the topography is bold, strange; here was the war ground of Indian tribes, these natural fortresses on the highway of the river. Here, too, La Salle founded his Fort St. Louis, a French strong hold in savage country. Here, too, is the northern limit of coal. One notices mine mounds sharp against the horizon. —an exhibition at COLBY'S EIGHTEENTH CENTURY DINING ROOM FURNITURE Antiques and Reproductions A thoroughly fascinating exhibition from the most gracious period in furniture history; authentic Chippendale/ Sheraton, Hepplewhite and Duncan Phyffe designs.

WEAVER THE talking- picture stum bles now into the quagmire of press- agentry through which all things theatrical must wade to the rela tively firm ground of pardonable ex aggeration. We are told that Corinne Griffith sings and plays a harp in 'The Divine Lady11 and we like that good picture less for the deception. We read of Richard Barthelmess singing "Weary River1' in the picture of like title and our interest in the story is repeatedly sidetracked for speculation as to the reason for this wholly un necessary representation. A similar fraud detracts from "The Pagan." It is good, then, to witness "A Dangerous Woman" and find Baclanova doing her own singing and playing, or to behold Davey Lee as "Sonny Boy" singing that dripping chorus in delightful imi tation of Al Jolson. But the stupidity of the press- agentry lingers on long after the several songs are ended. "The Divine Lady," "Weary River" and "The Pagan" are good pictures, unusual of theme, competent as to act ing, interesting in unfoldment. Pro jected as silent pictures, with organ or orchestral accompaniment, they would afford as good entertainment as it is reasonable to expect in the cinema. Pro jected as talking pictures, with prin cipals breaking into song every few moments and with vocal doubles striv ing mightily to keep pace with the pic tured lips, they afford discomforting glimpses of a Hollywood giddy over its new toy. They foster anticipation of a yodeling Barrymore, a tenor Von Stroheim, an articulate Chaplin. They offer ground for renewal of the lately abandoned contention that motion- pictures should be seen and not heard. No longer, it seems, may such a lady as Corinne Griffith consider her destiny fulfilled if she has become merely an excellent actress; she must sing soprano and play the harp. No longer may a young man like Richard Barthelmess consider such acting as he did in 'ToFable David" a sufficient proficiency in his art; he must lead an orchestra, play the piano and sing tenor. Nor may a Novarro consider the title-role of "Ben Hur" complete unless the bounding chariot skid to a brash lyric from Tin-Pan Alley. If Dr. Collins has given ear to the propaganda which depicts the stage public deserting in favor of the talkies (as I doubt that level-headed gentleman has) he may ease his mind of whatever apprehen sions may have been bred. WHATEVER other sins may be charged to the speaking stage, deliberate faking has been almost ex clusively a cinema practice. In thirty years we have grown accustomed to the cowboy whose double takes the risks for him, to the hero who whips his weight in gunmen, even to the overfed leading woman who scampers into a five-gaited Ziegfeld ballet and makes the coryphees look like a bevy of Volga boatmen after a hard day. But the press agents permitted these deceits to come across with the conventional grain of salt. If the part to be played in a given story was that of concert-singer, a flash of the star with distended larynx imparted no death blow to illusion. Now we have every stellar character forced brutally into one musical pigeonhole or another and every plot made dependent upon the success of a ballad, a fox trot or a jazz band. Of course, there's a reason. Ridicu lous as it may seem, the reason is the profits that accrue from a successful song number. If a .story must be turned inside out, rewritten and de nuded of dramatic interest in order that the theme-song may be repeated three or four times during the course of a picture, these operations are cheer fully performed. The song royalties are considered worth it. One wonders whether Irving Berlin and his brethren may not be, after all, the chief bene ficiaries of Western Electric's stupen dous invention. One wonders, also, how long. Vocal A Dangerous Woman: Clive Brook, Baclanova, Americans, Africans, etc., in a highly articulate embellishment of the "Rain" theme. [Witness this one.] Coquette: Mary Pickford's gift to the TMECMICAGOA'N 37 speaking screen.

Telephone Roosevelt 2920 Chippewa Spring Water Company 1318 South Canal Street GO, CHICAGO Travel With and For Child By LUCIA LEWIS ren ANENT this business of traveling i with one's young. Behavionsts and other moderns will very probably advise packing the little dears off to a summer camp where they can be shield ed from the noxious influence of par- ents. But, worthy though summer camps are, they do not cover the situa- tion year after year. After a season or two, perpetual cheer, sportsmanship and sunny good-will begin to pall on some youngsters, particularly after they reach the ripe ages of 13 or 14 and feel themselves a bit adult for such goings-on. At the same time, many fond parents welcome the chance to see something of their offspring after the sketchy contacts of the school term, and if they (the parents) behave themselves it might be a good summer for the offspring at that. So this conscientious department tilts at the old windmill by oiling its type writer for a few words to families wanting to play together without end ing in a free-for-all or spending the summer in utterly delightful fashion for one member and complete boredom for all the others. (Since none of these suggestions are necessarily confined to the sub-voting age, you might gather an idea for this summer, even if you don't happen to be a parent.) FIRST of all, you may have a coun try place of your own instead of a problem about where to go, in which case just run along, unless you want a change this year or expect to get in an extra trip for broadening influences. That broadening trip may sound deadly enough but it can be pretty pleasant. Youthful enthusiasm at our side is apt to jolt us from our careful nonchalance about sightseeing, and youthful curiosity does much for the education of parents. Just remember that wherever you go, do it gaily, don't be instructive, and keep going. For adolescents a good tour is a grand thing. It keeps them from friendships and atmospheres that pro duce the objectionable hotel-kinder who clutter up so many smart resorts where papa and mamma have a beautiful time in the big season while the boys and girls ape grown-up sophistication or go it one better. The travel agencies are exceedingly helpful with this sort of thing. They route you all together or some of them take good care of the teen-ages on short trips while the par ents play golf, gamble, shop, or sample vintages in freedom for a few days. On this side of the water there are tours on every western railroad that should excite any Indian, outlaw, or cowboy-minded youngster. The Bur lington, Northwestern or Milwaukee lines run tours to the Dakota regions where Calamity Jane and Deadwood Dick used to whoop it up. Farther West, these lines (Union Pacific from Northwestern Station) as well as Northern Pacific reach into the Wyoming and Montana haunts of the old boys; haunts that are now being re-discovered by tired business men (and Ruth Hanna McCormick's name led all the rest) who are setting up private ranches for their families out here. Along the southern route, New Mexico and Arizona offer plenty of color for exploring youth, and these states also have cool ranches up in the mountains for summer dudes. Daw- gone, if we aren't back on the dude ranch theme. WELL, a dude ranch is my idea of a splendid vacation place for families. And aside from their regular features many of them abound in special attractions for the young. At Rancho Rea in Jimez Springs, New Mexico, they sport an unusually at tractive swimming pool among other things. The doggy Rising Sun Ranches in Montana have reproduced an old log fort, stockade, and an Indian vil lage where city pent kids can fight bat tles with unrepressed shrieks and yowls. Here they have their own corral with Shetland ponies so that twelve-year- olds may ride as much as the grown ups. Also in Montana is the O. T. O. Ranch, whose owner, Dick Randall, spins delectable yarns by the hour about notorious old Westerners to the gaping delight of young guests. Many other ranches are directed by men and women with good training in the care of children so that you are quite safe in sending your family out alone. TI4ECNICAG0AN 39 But we were touring — and must go back to remind you of the land cruises that run around the West on special trains equipped with large recreation- cars that do wonders to shorten long train journeys. Most train journeys are to be shorter in actual time as well. The western lines are slashing away at their schedules and on the crack trains the coast is to be achieved in four or five hours less time this summer than ever before. Not to mention the new airplane connections that take you, for instance, from Kansas City to Los An geles in a trifling one-day hop. I N the mountains around Los An- 1 geles and up the beach from Santa Barbara and Coronado Beach to Mon terey and San Rafael, children can bake brown in sun-suits and Vitamin —whatever it is they have in sunbeams. These fashionable resorts are much more pleasant for families in summer than in the roar of the big social sea son. They are smart and gay to ap peal to dancing daughters but I have always deemed the atmosphere of fashionable spots more wholesome for youth when all the would-bes are not lounging around waiting for photogra phers, as per Noel Coward. The off-season idea is just as good for the big European resorts. Many smart people are beginning to hit the Riviera, Biarritz and their ilk just be fore or just after the flashy crowds, and parents who want to show their chil dren the glories of Nice or Cannes should do so when the view isn't en tirely obstructed by actresses and seven fold divorcees. But before we make the leap from California to Europe, a word about the American East. There is as much as a year in school in one of the Circle tours that swing from here to Wash ington, up along the coast and back through Canada. What history, what old furniture, what scenery, what Johnny Walker! (Not the mayor of New York and not recommended for children) . If you can, get away early enough for June week at West Point or Annapolis. Going to New York by way of Washington, you can motor up to Annapolis or stay at old Carvel Hall in Crabtown itself and have a big time with parades, manoeuvres, historic buildings, and battleships waiting in the bay to take the poor middies on their Mediterranean Cruise. At West Point the Thayer Hotel does hand somely by visitors of the military. A dinner par excellence ... a dinner that's truly a work of culinary art !

At the Frank Bureau on Michigan Avenue I found them full of ideas for trips, summer places for families, schools, all sorts of parental advice. They urge a summer on the Brittany coast for one thing, which is here seconded with gusto. At St. Malo or Dinard or one of the little spots you may discover for yourself there is an admirable mixture of gaiety and serenity — and while you are there please buy the daughter a Brittany costume for the school masquerade, for playing house, or just general foolish ness. Those crisp aprons, stiff ruffs, and fluttering ribbons would make the summer worth while all by themselves. In England many delightful families spend the summer at Torquay or Ilfra- combe in the lovely Devon and Corn wall country, while Llandudnono in Wales and Glengariff in Ireland are very popular over there but not so well known by Americans. At places like these children have a chance to do some elbow-rubbing with well-bred English youngsters; quite an advantage for certain young sprouts I have met.

RECENTLY one of our leading newspapers carried a long article concerning the bareleg vogue versus the infinitely to be preferred silk stock inged leg. Such being the case and agreeing. — Heavens, if you only knew how much! — I went gallivanting about for a new place to procure silk stock ings. Arnolds' of New York at 737 N. Michigan solved the problem. They have only two grades, the very sheer, 54 gage, which sell for $3.95, and the net, you know large holes, for $3.75. Both of these, very good. They have a tremendous stock of bags, all kinds and prices. One case is filled entirely with snakeskin bags for those who like them, and though I don't, I must admit they are serv iceable. Several of the high priced bags have watches, either on a corner or at the top. They are of antelope and have quite a bit of marcassite trim. Prices run from $175.00 to $225.00. Among the less expensive ones, was a bag made entirely of rose, green and gray twirled straw, exceptionally good to use with a sport outfit. All the best perfumes can also be found here as well as a smart selection of costume jewelry with especial atten tion paid to semi-precious stones. Many seed pearl strands and bracelets as well as some very good jade. NOW that summer is almost here more people seem to be inter ested in the Csechoslovackian smocked dress. The sleeveless ones are delight fully cool and if properly hemmed — very deeply — no pettie need be worn. At Dane Kreme, 737 N. Michigan, I saw some that were especially chic. Added to the smocking was a lot of multi-colored embroidery or one of pure white smocked in silver made an excellent choice. These run in price from $35.00 to $250.00. A white broadcloth coat — sleeveless ¦ — with a narrow line of colored wool embroidery, price $40, would look smart to put on after a snappy set of tennis. A few of the other attractive pos sessions — up to now — of Mr. Kremer are French imported handkerchiefs with dainty colored applique. $2.00 to $10.00 and I have not seen as many patterns elsewhere. Small little bottles of Renaud's per fume to carry in your bag for $1.00. Adorable little dresses for the chil dren with just a little colored embroi dery, ranging in price from $7.00 to $25.00. And last but not least another place to procure silk hose. This time an unusual design open mesh of the net variety. Price $2.50 a pair. IN case you haven't noticed it, I'm trailing right down the block going in all the newer places. So to con tinue in this same building is Miss Ellis' Tea Room, who for the last six teen years has been on the second floor of the Willoughby Bldg. Dinner $1.00. Sundays $1.50. Also delicious tea. Modern interior and all together charming atmosphere. Jacques have some heavenly new hats for summer. Larger brim and I should say a bit lower crown. A very good looking one was made of black felt with medallions made of tan tuscan straw about two inches across. These were folded back a little in front and added to its wearability. Small hats, self trimmed of the new needlepoint straw were marvelously soft and comfortable. In all colors and to be worn with everything. Hats are priced from $18.50 up. Adorable French pajamas of pastel crepe, deep V neck with an inch fold of white and applique of the color on the white and the white on color. The shoulder is rather long, forming a tiny sleeve which reminds me to tell you that the old fashioned little cap sleeve, or about half way to the elbow, has come back. A sport suit of white crepe has that sleeve and the jacket is of mixed black and white Rodier material, severely tailored and smart beyond words. Another suit made of the Rodier fabric has a long coat of red and tan stripes loosely woven of linen and a tan crepe dress to match.

One of water melon is short skirted with a large trailing bouffant bow at the side and the popular and effective small drape under the opposite arm. Neck lines are now as low as those shown for winter but to compensate, many tiny little shoulder straps are shown. Flowered chiffons are of large splashy designs and colors, mostly made with a circular frill from knee to hem and with a soft belt of matching ma terial. For those who prefer smaller figured chiffons I think Blums have the best selection and at both places the prices are the same from $85.00 up. A truly exquisite evening gown is of green, cream, and a touch of tan flowered chiffon on a black background, and over black, the distinctive note a hem ruffle, from knee almost to floor, of very full black chiffon with a tiny scalloped edge. This has a high back and long sleeves. A dinner dress of Black Chantilly over chiffon has a yolk on the lining of tiny peach pearls and silver sequins. This fits rather tightly but too has a scalloped hem. Sleeveless and rather low but a jacket can be had if desired to wear at less formal functions.

BOOK/ Bringing Excitement to Paris By SUSAN WILBUR AT one time last season, Paris got excited about two plays. And when Paris gets ex cited about a play it gets excited. You will remem ber what happened when Victor Hugo's fiernani was first put on — I don't quite, but then I have so many things to remember. Of these two plays one I believe had to do with Queen Victoria's virtue, political virtue, that is. That one I did not read. To my capacity for ex citement if not to the Parisian's there are limits. And Queen Victoria lies beyond them. At least in her political aspects. So incidentally does the in fringement of the alexandrine. I have not read Hernani. But the second had to do with French prize winners and their publishers, and with their wives if they had wives. It was by Edouard Bourdet, author also of "The Captive," dramatic predessor to "The Well of Loneliness" and it was called "Vient de Paraitre." Which being inter preted, though, so far as I am aware no interpretation into English has as yet been announced, means "Just Out." Juste Ciel! — as the more personable, but less virtuous, of the two heroines in Alice Hegan Rice's new book is once heard to exclaim. Is this the way they give prises in Paris? Is this the way they have to work over their authors to get them to follow up their first books by second books? Why it's worse than getting into the academy — reference to "Le Bois Sacre" — or would be if it weren't that they seem at least to be able to manage it without anyone's actually being unfaithful to their hus bands. THE point of all these remarks be ing Maurice Bedel, last year's winner of the Goncourt prize, and the fact that, having read "Vient de Paraitre" I opened my advance copy of his new book "Molinoff: Or the Count in the Kitchen" with more of fear than of hope. On the jacket they quote me as having said that his prize book "Jerome: Or the Latitude of Love" was fifty-seven different varie ties of good entertainment. It doesn't sound like me but on the other hand let it stand as a statement. Query: will Molinoff be even fifty-six kinds. Bourdet and the jacket quite apart, "Molinoff" is certainly not just what anyone had expected. Having worked out in Jerome so excellent a scale for the computation of sexual coefficients, and having tested it on Norway, the obvious thing for M. Bedel to do was, of course, to make a quick trip say to the South Sea Islands and check up on it from the opposite extreme. And here instead he takes one of those wild Russian nobleman that we heard about in "Princess of the Night," translated in January, and puts him in the kitchen of a Bolivian millionaire in Touraine. And thereupon makes of the cook a social success among local aristocrats who would not so much as have ex changed bows with the master. Comparisons with Jerome are of course possible. But to discuss the deli cate sentiments of the daughters of M. D'Eglantier for Comte Molinoff, in terms of latitude or even of longitude, though possible would hardly be profit able. Nor would it be profitable to re mark that as in the case of Jerome, M. Bedel had given us a background. For the corner of Touraine that he discov ers for the reader is not so much a traveller's dream as an antiquarian's. You hear now and again of an eighteenth century French country house discovered complete with furni ture. Here several are discovered not only complete but with their inhabi tants in a state of animation, manners, morals, horse drawn vehicles and all. Needless to say, even at its most hilarious, the comedy is well over the edge into tragedy. These people have lost their sons. They have lost their money. Not that Molinoff makes us weep. This one exquisite gift M. Bedel carries over intact from "Jerome" — the gift of eluding the reader. Of not quite letting things happen. Of foiling you with his wit whenever he catches you on the verge of an emotion. Booh Briefs Awake and Rehearse, by Louis Brom- field. (Frederick A. Stokes Company.) TWECWICAGOAN 43 $2.50.

Twenty-seventh anniversary of "Mrs. Wiggs of the Cabbage Patch." Travels in the Congo, by Andre Gide; translated by Dorothy Bussy. (Alfred A. Knopf.) $5.

(Covici-Friede.) $3. Here you may find the difference be tween a first edition, a limited edition, an association copy, and a fine binding. Also the diuy heights to which rare book prices soar.

(The Macmillan Com pany.) Mr. Lindsay, recent recipient of a dinner in Chicago to celebrate his re' turn to Illinois from Seattle, is not, like Rupert Hughes, interested in Washing ton's liquor bills. He wants him as a symbol — to intersect Main Street and so redeem America from utilitarianism. Hence these prose dithyrambs. The Vampire: His Kith and Kin, by Montague Summers. (E. P. Dutton and Co.) Recommended to playgoers who have seen "Dracula" and who would like to know the whole truth about vampires from Greece and Assyria to the Malay Archipelago, and how they got that way.

Gold Coast and Slum: A Sociological Study of Chicago's Near North Side, by Harvey Warren Zorbaugh. (The Uni versity of Chicago Press.) The trick is not to let the subtitle deceive you, — or Professor Park's preface in support of the sub-title. Sociological studies are, by defi nition, things that nobody can read, and this is a book that nobody, no Chicagoan at any rate, can very well stop reading.

Hello Towns! by Sherwood Anderson. (Horace Liveright.) $3. A year ago last November, Sherwood Anderson bought two country weeklies and settled down in Marion, Virginia, to publish them. What he does in "Hello Towns'" is to put the first year of those two weeklies bodily between covers, leaving out only the politics, and personals, and filler — Mr. Anderson once had the book of Ruth set up for the benefit of his subscribers! The result is a little like the Shepherd's Calendar, only in prose and with Anderson broadcasting instead of Spencer, and a modern complement of murders, bad shootings, fatal shootings, stills discovered, church suppers. Ki- wanis meetings, and an occasional uplift editorial creeping in. Also the famous interview with Mr. Hoover, secretary of commerce. And the death of the office cat. Let Tomorrow Come, by A. J. Barr. (W. W. Norton.) $2.50. A Chicago writer wtho knows his underworld tells us what the people in a jail think about — and what they do. And he tells it in their own language.

His collected stories show him as the greatest living American short story writer. Nellie Bloom, by Margery Latimer. (J. H. Sears Company.) $2. If you like "transition" and "The American Cara van" you will like these subtle and sub jective stories — a combination of Wis consin material and New York sophisti cation. And by a lady who has a real style. For Lancelot Andrewes: Essays on Style and Order, by T. S. Eliot. (Doubleday, Doran & Co.) $2. The rebel of the Wasteland seeks sanctuary in the Anglo-Catholic faith — in case you want something to meet the challenge to "laugh that off." The Pathway, by Henry Williamson. (E. P.
