PANGE THR w
"THE HAPPY ISLANDS", Stories and
Sketches of the Georgian Bay, by
Marlow A. Shaw: Toronto: )LeClel-
land and Stewart; $2.00
To one who has been in the Georg-
ian Bay region for no matter how
brief a time the place is memorable
find he is apt to look forward to a
book of sketches on theregion with
all the anticipation that one who has
roamed the Pampas of South Ameri-
ca would anticipate a book by W. H.
Hudson in times past. "The Happy
Islands", to such a one will be a dis-
appointment for there is a certain
Stevensonian shallowness about th-em
where one might expect richness and
depth. Shaw knows his region and
occasionally lie writes well but for
the most part he deals in common-
places without the necessary bril-
liance of writing to lift them to the
level of a similarly commonplace in-
cident in "An Inland Voyage" or
"Travels with a Donkey."
The incongruity of some of the in-
stances are as outstanding as some of
the raw spots in Mantrap, Sinclair
Lewis' latest book. For in the
sketch called "Jones in Camp" the
fellow tagging around the island
dragging in drift-wood and later
hanging out his washing on a line is
as out of place on a Georgian Bay is-
land as is the whole idea of a weak-
sister of a New Yorker going into the
North Woods for a vacation in "Man-
trap". The book may be characterized
as uneven, for in the sketch of "Dave
the half-breed" and parts of "Jake,"
Shaw has found a really subtle touch
that for the most part is lacking. He
seems most of the time to be writing
himself out, to have no reserve, to
have nothing more to tell if you were
to ask him.
Sevien illustrations in black and
white are included and they give a
good impression of their subjects but
lack somewhat in character. Selec-
tions from "The Happy Islands" are
highly worth reading and the book is
commendable for the sympathetic tone
with which the people of the region
are treated although one would hardly
say they were understood.

RELATIVITY IN MAN AND SOCIETY
by Arthur F. Bentley. G. P. Put-
nan ""s Sons; New York.
Here is a book that is different. It
would be difficult for any layman and
for any specialists who haven't hap-
pened to combine their specialization
into three field-physics, psychology
and sociology. And for a college stu-
dent who has predilections for large
print travel books during the winter,
thin and ecstatic leaflets of verse in
the spring, light fiction and a ham-
mock in the summer and football sta-
tistics in the autumn it is nothing less
Still, the college student can read
it with no loss unless it be a good bit
of intellectual egotism. This work on
relativity in society certainly can give
the reader the knowledge of his
abysmal ignorance, and that, as some
of our more disillusioned professors
are fond of saying, is a great deal.
Mr. Bentley begins with Einstein
and relativity, in the strictly physical
sense. He defines thes term "Ein-
stein" as it appears in our modern
intellectual world. From physics he
makes the transition to what he calls
the position of man. This transition
is not complete, for it necessarily in-
volves a change from the most exact
of all sciences to the most subjective
element on earth. But it does suc-
ceed fairly well in stating the relation
of man to the universe as we must
not conceive it.
